Suits, which originated in Europe in the 17th century, have become men's daily clothing on various occasions around the world. The longevity of suits is that not only the dressing effect can reflect generous simplicity, correctness, crispness, exquisite craftsmanship and appropriateness, but also the age span of the wearer is large, suitable for the three generations of old, middle and young. Another very important reason is that it has deep cultural connotations, and if you want to understand the culture of suits, you have to revisit the history of suits.

In the Louis XIV era in the second half of the seventeenth century, the knee-length coat "Quistcole" and the slightly shorter "Best", and the tight and body half-length pants "Kyorot" together On the stage of history, it constitutes the composition form and many wearing habits of modern three-piece suits.

From 1670 to 1675, the Croatian light cavalry served as the guards of Louis XIV in Paris. They were called the "Krabat Guards". A linen cloth tied around its neck caused people to imitate and became an indispensable decoration for men's necklines. This is the ancestor of modern neckties "Krabat".

In 1789, the revolutionaries in the French Revolution used the trousers "Pontaron" as a revolution to the nobles' tight-fitting half-length pants "Cyurote". At first, Pantaron's pants only reached the calf. Gradually grew longer, and grew to the instep in 1793. By the first half of the nineteenth century, the trouser legs were sometimes tight and sometimes loose, coexisting with traditional half-length trousers. By the 1850s, men's trousers completed their modern look.

In the Victorian British upper class, there were many etiquettes, especially for social activities at night. Men must wear a tuxedo and behave elegantly and speak well. After the dinner, men can gather in the lounge next to the restaurant for a nap. Only here can they smoke, drink brandy, make jokes, or lie down on the sofa. As a result, a loose tailless jacket was used as a special clothing for the lounge on the stage of history. This is the "Laonki Jacket", which was produced around 1848. For a considerable period of time, this kind of jacket could not be elegant, and was only used for leisure time such as rest, outings, and walks. In the second half of the nineteenth century, this jacket rose to become an important variety in men's clothing. The Oxford jackets and Cambridge coats worn by students of Oxford and Cambridge universities at that time were also in this style.

China's first domestic suit was born in the late Qing Dynasty. It was the first domestic suit made by hand, stitch by stitch. Under the circumstances at that time, its craftsmanship may not exceed the production level of Western countries, but it has fully demonstrated the superb craftsmanship of Chinese suit making and has become the forerunner of Chinese suits among the nations of the world.
