Communion calls for special attire, but often times this is the first time a boy has worn a suit. Suits for men are much easier to find and fit, but how do you do this for a boy? While it’s easy to just swipe your card and purchase one, there are certain tips to look out for when making your purchase.

Boy sat in Church wearing a perfectly fitted communion suit.

Put his skin tone into consideration

The whole colour segment is actually one aspect a lot of people tend to miss.

Just as it is with men’s suits, communion suits for boys also need to be worn with the skin tone of the wearer put into consideration. If your boy is light in complexion, shades like blue will look pretty good on him.

However, if he’s got darker skin, try to keep fabric colours darker as well. White is traditional for communion, but you can play with colours like navy blue, dark green, and brown as well. You just need to make sure the Church is fine with alternative colours.

Be sure to pay special attention to the colour of your communion suit. Although it’s quite understandable that a lot of people like to play and experiment with colours when they’re selecting dresses and suits for different occasions.

However, when it comes to mens and boys suit, it is recommended to move with more caution, especially with communion. Picking a colour that is too outlandish can end with you looking out of place.

Consider where and when you’re going

When you put your destination into consideration, you’ll be able to understand the need for simplicity and discretion when it comes to communion suits. With these suits, less is often more. Consider the weather forecast for the day as well; a colder day may call for a thicker waistcoat accompaniment.

Pay attention to the fit

You need to ensure that your communion suit fits your boy’s body perfectly. To help with that, ensure that you go through measurements before you purchase one. Checking the fitting will help you to know areas where the suit should be modified, and you’ll be able to make the necessary adjustments from there. Remember, the chest is the main measurement to get right; almost everything else is alterable.

Put the sleeves into consideration

When it comes to sleeves, you need to be pretty careful. Ideally, your blazer’s sleeve should be just enough to shave your cuffs. Please don’t feel the need to get a blazer with sleeves that excessively cover your arms. Also, ensure that when you wear a shirt underneath the blazer, there’s a little allowance for the sleeves of the shirt to show (that’s actually the whole point of the blazer's sleeves).

Remember that it shouldn’t be too tight

Remember that this is a formal suit, not a jumpsuit or a tracksuit. Let it have ample space for your boy to move his body. This tip is especially true for people who are attending very crowded and busy events. The chance that you’ll be doing a lot of moving around is very high, so make sure that your communion suit affords you enough space to walk around effectively.
