TALL AND BROAD If your daily workouts have left you with broad shoulders, neck arms and chest, you may not want extra padding to add additional bulk to your physique. Consider the elegance of a shawl collar tuxedo. Its clean lines will give you a slimmer silhouette. Choose dark colours and possibly a striped pair of trousers to give you a lean look and draw attention away from your upper body. If you also have a thick waist, go with a waistcoat with a deep neckline and avoid cummer-bunds which will draw focus to your mid-section. SHORT AND SLIM Make sure you pay special attention to tailoring. A properly fitted suit is key to style success for men with shorter frame. A classic two or three button jacket and pleated trousers in monochromatic colours work best, A satin stripe on your tux trousers also will help add height. SHORT AND STOCKY a shawl collar tuxedo will give you a leaner look. To offset a large waist thicker shoulder pads will help and give the illusion of a broader chest and slimmer mid-section. Select a long vest with a deep V neckline and avoid frilly or pleated shirts and cummerbunds Black and Navy are the best colours, If necessary choose a larger jacket so that it doesn’t pull at the waist when buttoned, Select a suit that suits your style (photo kindly supplied by S D Kells Enniskillen).
