A Well-Cut Suit

Did you know that:-

The most important quality of a good suit is a jacket that has a full canvas layer between the fabric and lining

Cheaper suits have a lining that is fused or glued to the fabric. A more affordable option is half-canvas, where the designer only uses a layer in the more visible top portion of the jacket, but full canvas is best.

To test if the jacket is full-canvas, pinch the layers of fabric between the button holes. If you feel three layers it is full canvas, two layers is half canvas and one layer means the lining is fused or glued.

Also look under the collar of the jacket for a felt lining.
