Shoulders: The most important component of the suit and for several reasons. They help to shape the suit: the padded shoulder adds a little weight, the natural shoulder makes things feel super relaxed, and the rope structure adds some extremely formal structure.
Surgical cuffs: Most suits have non-functional buttons on the sleeves. Meanwhile, the surgeon’s cuffs can be opened and closed. Since you are unlikely to have a kidney transplant in your blazer, they mostly mean an extra level of care and attention on the part of the costume designer.
Vents: Flaps on the back bottom of a suit jacket. The central (or single) vents are slightly more sloping, while the side (or double) vents are slightly more elegant.

His costumes follow this formula to the end: they are cut in universally flattering proportions and served in a pleasant seasonal set of tones and patterns. (Not surprisingly, he helped design Ludlow at J.Crew – and had previously worked at Ralph.)

Sid Mashburn: Honest to Goodness Southern Charm is the name of the game at Sid Mashburn, an Atlanta haberdashery whose elegant, handmade costume feels timeless and downright presidential.
