Transcript:Men's Wardrobe and the Size SolutionHi, I'm Kim Johnson Gross. Very few people have ideal proportions and are what they consider to be a perfect height. The key is finding the right clothes to make you look your best. Know the rules then experiment.
Big Size SolutionsYou're best bet to looking slimmer is to wear a structured jacket that will give you shape. Look for longer lapels so it's a V neck, which again emphasizes the vertical lines of your body.
Petite Size SolutionsShorter men should wear darker colors, and keep the color fairly consistant from the top to the bottom. This will give you a longer look. Long, narrow lapels will flatter a short man because it creates the illusion of height. Also pants with flat fronts that slightly taper.
When it comes to the shirt, look for long pointy collars. Vertical stripes also give you stature. Make sure your tie knot is not the large bulbous, Windsor, keep it small and keep your tie fairly narrow.
Tall Size SolutionsWhen you're tall you want to break up the vertical lines by contrasting color on your top and your bottom. Also you can wear plads and patterns very well, again to break up that long, tall, vertical line.
Shirts with wider colors are flattering as are wider ties and ties with larger knots.
No matter what your body shape you'll only look as good as you feel. So why not feel great in the clothes that you wear every day?
