Whether rented, store bought or tailored, all suit labels display a worsted wool number. “Worsted” derived from the English village name “Worsted” indicates the number of times the wool has been twisted. The lower the number, the more durable, heavy and inexpensive the suit. The higher the number, the more lighter, softer and costly the suit. So for your next special occasion be sure to choose a suit that has a number of 140 and above, to look and feel your absolute best and leave the “durable suits” (100’s-120’s) to bear the hardships of everyday life… TTG
