4 Men’s Body Types & How to Dress Them, High Point, North Carolina

Pull a business suit from the rack, have a few men try it on, and the outcome may be flattering to some but not others. The fit has much to do with the wearer’s body type. The good news is there are a few useful tips men can implement to ensure their clothing fits them to a tee. The high fashion menswear team at Lindsay Odom Ltd. in High Point, NC, specializes in professionally tailored men’s clothing. To save a bit of time and a lot of money, the menswear experts offer the following clothing suggestions for males of all heights and widths.

Thin Frame & Limbs

Have your clothes tailored to avoid shirts and pants swallowing a thin frame. If you want to add some bulk without looking pudgy, consider heavy or textured fabrics such as corduroy or herringbone tweed.

Large Or Muscular Frame

Slightly loose-fitted jackets and pants can help hide any extra weight. The key is to work with fabrics with a clean drape and minor tapers at the jacket’s waist area. Pants worn on the natural waist instead of beneath it can also help minimize any girth around the midsection.

Short Torso & Legs

The advantage here for shorter men is a wide range of clothing possibilities to trick the eye. Vibrant pinstripe ties, jackets with sharp lapels and bright and bold colors can help physical elevation. Avoid chunky heels and horizontal detailing, which can take visual inches off actual height.

Tall: Husky Or Slender

Slender, tall men can balance their frame even more with thick fabrics while stockier, tall men should consider subdued patterns.
