When seeing a person wearing a suit on TV or in person are you able to tell which designer and collection it is? I am now noticing the number of buttons, type of lapel, type of pockets and number of vents that people choose to wear; although, I do not know how to tell one collection from the other.

In short: yes. The first thing you should see is whether the suit is well cut or not. You can tell if it's bespoke or off-the-rack, and this will help you see where the suit comes from. When it's bespoke, you can normally tell where it's from by looking at the style. Double vents are probably Savile Row, a lean silhoutte is probably french. It's often very hard to get further idenfitication than that, because a bespoke suit should not really be to a house's style, but more to yours. With a designer suit, just look for the general style of the suit. Most of the big design houses' looks do not change often, mostly subtley like Armani's, or not at all like RL. In that case, you can see where it is from by looking for a certain house's signature. However, you need to be up to date on the styles in the past two years because generally a house's style will change in that time. I know this is rambling, I'm sorry, I have a hangover (How ungentlemanly.) I hope this may have helped you a bit. --European Interloper
