How You Can Get Slim Fit Clothing For Men 

Finding clothes that fit you perfectly can be difficult but it does not have to be. When we go shopping, stores have a mass production of clothing that is suppose to fit generic shapes and sizes. This means that the small selection of clothing to pick from can result in things that may not fit perfectly in all areas. The solution to getting slim fit clothing is with custom tailored wardrobe.


The Way Your Clothing Should Fit

Dress Shirt
  • Line up your shoulders to the shoulder seams
    • the right length will allow you to freely raise your arms without restriction and no skin showing around the torso
  • There should be no excess fabric in all areas of the shirt
  • The sleeves and the body of the shirt should be the same cut
    • For example, if it is a slim fit, it should should remain the same throughout the shirt
  • Your bottoms should rest at your natural waistline near the navel
  • The cuffs located at the bottom of the trouser should lightly rest on the laces of your shoes
    • If you are shorter in height, the pant legs should just brush the top of your shoes for a more flattering look
  • It is important that the fit of your jacket is correct around the shoulders and chest
    • Try on a blazer and if you can move with ease try sizing down
    • Repeat the process until you find one that’s too small, then go back up one size and that should be your perfect fit
  • The jacket’s lapels should lie flat against the front panels
  • The buttons should hang close to or rest lightly on your stomach
  • Your biceps should just barely break the drape of the sleeve from your shoulder
  • Your shirt should always be tighter than your jacket
Dress Shoes
  • Build up your collection of classics (oxfords, brogues or monk straps)
  • When wearing dress shoes there should be no rubbing or tightness anywhere
