The 5 Tips

Every Man Should Know

July 2008 Issue of Men's Vogue

The Short Man
Apolo Ohno

5’8’’ 165 LBS

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

2 - A pant leg with very little break will help you look taller.

3 - Show some cuff to lengthen the look of your arms.

4 - A peak lapel helps elongate your physique.

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

The Large Man

Horatio Sanz

5’9’’ 250LBS

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

2 - Keep your jacket buttoned unless you’re sitting down.

3 - Wear a simple, elegant shirt. Avoid plaids and checks.

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

5 - Avoid super skinny ties and lapels. Proportion with your torso is key.

The Tall Man

Raja Bell

6’5’’ 210 LBS

1 - Lighter Colors add width to a narrow frame.

2 - A Two-Button Suit works great on a tall man-as long as the suit has relatively high-cut lapels.

3 - Just because your tall doesn’t mean you need an extra-long suit size. Try On a Long First.

4 - Keep The Amount of Cuff you show to a minimum

5 - Ask for A Decent Amount of Break in your trousers, so your long legs don’t look too long.

The Athletic Man


6’2’’ 205 LBS

1 - Don’t wear peak lapels. Your chest and shoulders are broad enough; no need to accentuate them.

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

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

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

5 - Strong man, solid shoe. You don’t want anything clunky on your feet, but you also don’t want to look like you’re wearing ballet flats.
