JayJay , Dec 14, Durden , Dec 14, I like Hugo Boss for that. Zenny , Dec 14, Here is a thread I can finally vent on this. I am getting sick and tired of this obsession with a slim fit suit. Its a fad, you will blow a wad of cash on one and in a couple of years you are going to look stupid when everyone realizes that these slim fit suits make us look like 14 year olds and skinny toothpicks or extras on the set of Mad Men.
It seems to me that this slim fit suit business and especially these thin ties is nothing more than a bunch of us trying to differentiate ourselves from those "other" suit wearers and somehow pin a fashion label on ourselves that we are somehow right for the moment.
My opinion is that slim fit is not smart. Slim fit suits look foolish, they did in the 60's and do today in the same way that leisure suits never were going to work.
Additionally, the slim fit suit only works on skinny people they dont even work, they make you look even skinnier. Have you seen one on a muscular or even just a tad overweight person lately? Oy vey, its like a fat woman in a mini skirt and blouse with hordes of clevage exposed. Plus they fit like shit, make your feet look like gunships and are constricting as hell.

Adding a vest to a suit is a great idea for any guy. Getting a pair of pleated pants is not the deadly sin the fashion press has made it out to be. Traditionally pleated pants are always cuffed. Also, the single button draws visual attention to your mid-section and the lower button stance cinches your waist.
Another modern touch that we like is the slim lapel. But lapel width, a subject we went into in more depth a while back giving it a full article , is another place where athletic fit guys should be careful. When your chest is big, a slim lapel will start to look out of proportion and appear like one of those uber-trendy skinny lapels that got out of control a few years ago.
Stick with the classics and go with a regular sized lapel. And speaking of trends, since lapel width and tie width go hand-in-hand, now is a good time to get rid of any ultra narrow ties that may have crept into your closet during the super skinny tie craze.
We are proponents of double vents or side vents on suit jackets. We like the smooth lines that stay intact and cover your backside even when you reach into your pocket. For athletic fit guys, we are even more in favor of the side vent. A ventless or single vented jacket will make hip flare worse, but side vents can help to minimize flaring. We know that everybody is different and there is no one set of rules for getting the fit right.
If there were, there would be no need for made-to-measure clothes. Following the advice above will have you well on your way to mastering the athletic fit suit. Having trouble perfecting your fit? Normally wear a sport jacket, but alway a tent in the waist.
