I am looking to buy a suit within the next month. I think $600 is the most I would like to spend. Reading through this forum, I find that fit is the priority. Within this goal, those who post advise to find a good shoulder fit. The length of the suit and length of the sleeves are easier to understand.

Can anyone else suggest what a good fit means.

Someone had written I should be able to raise my arms without the suit moving significantly.

I am also finding people suggesting side vents and flapless pockets.

And with respect to lapels, I am finding that people prefer peak lapels although this is more difficult to come by.

I am also confused about the use of the terms gorge and button stance. Could someone provide clear definitions of this and what is desired in a fit.

Any other important suggestions for a first time buyer would be appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
