For Slim Fit suits & tuxedos, the pants are slimmer down the leg, creating a very tapered look. The tapering of the pant begins in the hips and backside, which creates a more fitted appearance. The pant opening around the ankle is also smaller, which allows for a shorter hem to show sock.
The Slim Fit jacket fits closer to the body and is cut more narrow through the waist and hips, showing a trimmer waist. The first button position is a bit higher, which creates the illusion of a slimmer waistline. The sleeve opening around the wrist is more narrow, which creates a tapered sleeve from the shoulder to the wrist.
Modern fit is similar to what other men's formalwear companies would call ‘classic' fit. Our modern pants still have a slim look but allow for a bit more movement in the fabric. The pant opening is also a bit wider, which allows for a break in the pants. For the modern fit jacket, the cut is a bit looser than a Slim Fit to allow more room between the body and the jacket, which allows more room for comfort and movement in the waist and hips.
