Dressing for Your Body Type

Every man has a different body type, which is why it’s almost impossible to find an off-the-rack suit that fits you just right. There are also small details that can affect how a suit or shirt looks on you given your body size and shape. For example, the stripe pattern of your custom suit or dress shirt can make you look taller or shorter, wider or thinner. The key, then, is to know your body type so you can select the right stripes to complement your look. This video has more information.

There are a lot of factors to consider when selecting a bespoke suit, which is why it’s advisable to work with a bespoke tailor in Manhattan. An experienced tailor will take all the necessary measurements to ensure that your hand-stitched suit fits your exact body shape and type. The end result is a custom suit that fits like no other suit in the world, because this suit is made specifically for you.
