Just think of an article of clothing that you can wear that makes you look taller, slimmer and more muscular. If you think such a magical garment doesn’t exist you are absolutely wrong. A Proper fitting men’s jacket like a blazer, sport coat or suit jacket can do just the trick. You can pair a blazer with a pair of jeans for a dressy casual feel, a sport coat or suit jacket with a pair of trousers for a professional polished look.
Not all jackets can be worn off the rack and for most men, you will want to get them tailored to your personal measurements. If you are trying to get the right fit and enhance the overall look you have to try it on and customize it to your body. There’s nothing worse and a jacket with short arms or hanging way down in the back. Or one that looks like you borrowed it from your grandfather. All jackets once tailored should raise your perceived waistline to give you a longer torso with a slimmer waist. You will want it to taper slightly above the waist and flare out to cover your stomach and hips.
Broad manly shoulders are great if you have natural genetics. However, if you lack a little up top a jacket can add the necessary volume to give you a V-Shaped torso. Wider, broader shoulders will also help make your waist look slimmer. Any tailor or sales associate will be able to help you get the fit right. Make sure and try it on in-store and check in front of a full-length mirror before you buy. The truth is there are no hard and fast rules to perfect men’s jacket. You just need to find something that fits well and works with your personal style.
