The suit is a traditional form of men's formal clothes in the Western world and it has been around for about four hundred years as a suit of a matching coat, trousers and waistcoat. After the end of the first World War, most men adopted the short lounge coated suit. During the decades that followed, the size of the lapel had changed from wide to a very narrow size. Suit jackets were also cut as straight as possible without any indication of a waistline. Lately, the wearing of suits has become far less common than it once was and is now usually reserved for formal and business activities.
