The V-neck creates the illusion of height and slims down the frame. Wear thin knit cotton, wool, (choose merino over lambs wool) cashmere, silk or other blends that sit high on the waist and hips and snug in the shoulders, chest and arms. Avoid thick knit, heavy and bulky sweaters as they only add weight to the man’s frame.
Buy slim, flat or plain front pants in dark colors such as gray, and navy. Avoid pleats whenever possible. Flat or plain front pants give the man a cleaner waist and uses less material than pleats which add weight to the frame instead of shedding it. Wear pinstripes frequently.
