Style Help for a Short Man


  • Don’t wear a longer suit jacket. It just makes your legs look shorter.

  • Don’t wear fat ties and wide lapels; keep it slim


  • A trouser leg with very little break will help you look taller

  • Show some cuff to lengthen the look of your arms.

  • A peak lapel helps elongate your body.

  • A lower button stance creates long lines, and that essentially stretches you out.

  • A Belt Makes You Look Shorter… the more pared-down you are, the taller you’ll appear. So ditch the belt. If your suit fits properly, your pants will stay in place.   





Style Help For A Tall Man


  • Don’t buy suits with oversize, padded shoulders. They swallow you up, making you look frailer, not bigger

  • Don’t wear extra-slim ties. You need ties with a bit of width so they won’t appear to elongate your torso.


  • Wear Lighter colours – they add width to a narrow frame.

  • A two-button suit works great on a tall man—as long as the suit has relatively high-cut lapels.

  • Keep the amount of cuff you show to a minimum.

  • You can play down your height. Accessories that cut across your body, such as belts, quarter-folded pocket squares, and horizontally striped ties, help accomplish this



Style Help for a Large Man


  • Don’t wear a roomy suit. It doesn’t make you look slimmer—it makes you look sloppy.

  • Don’t go untucked.


  • Wear a pocket square. It brings the focus to your chest, not your gut.

  • Keep your jacket buttoned unless you’re sitting down.

  • Wear a simple, elegant shirt. Avoid plaids and checks.

  • You can wear flat-front pants. They are engineered to be comfortable, even without pleats.

  • Avoid superskinny ties and lapels. Proportion with your torso is key.

  • Avoid having to choose between strapping your pants above or below your belly: Wear braces and float your waist.

Style Help for an Athletic Man


  • Don’t wear peak lapels. Your chest and shoulders are broad enough—no need to accentuate them.

  • Don’t wear a pocket square. It’s not necessary to call more attention to your already proud chest.


  • A solid build doesn’t mean your suit should be a size too large.

  • Two-button jackets sync up with the V shape of your torso.

  • Low-collar shirts work well with a thicker neck.

  • Your jacket should be tapered in slightly at the sides.

  • Yes, you can wear narrow-cut trousers. It’s your chest that needs room, not your ankles.
