STYLE ADVICE

SUITING TIPS FOR SLIM GUYS

By Matt Glazebrook, 4 September 2017

Looking sharp in tailoring as a skinny dude has become significantly easier in recent years. Where once shopping for an affordable two-piece risked drowning in a boxy off-the-peg fits, the rise and rise of slim-cut suits over the past decade or so has made a whole new flattering silhouette available to those with a slight frame (and without the funds to visit a tailor). With this in mind, here are a few key pointers for getting the most out of your frame in formalwear.

Shop slim...

It sounds obvious, but it bears repeating. Where once more slender chaps were plagued by sloping shouldered jackets and shapeless trousers, there now exists a veritable cornucopia of slim and skinny-fit tailoring on the high street (and virtual high street). You might be not be able to achieve the 'made to measure' perfection of a bespoke suit, but a sharply-fitted two-piece that enhances your physique rather than hides it should be well within reach. 

...But don't go too skinny

Your jeans might not leave much to the imagination, but your suit trousers probably should. Super-tight denim usually contains elastane to allow for ease of movement and to cushion your delicate bits – suit material isn't nearly as forgiving or flattering when stretched tight. Basically, if skinny rocker dude is your body type, look to the classically slim-line cuts (above).

Tie one on

As a slim guy in a slim suit, it follows that you might reach for a slim tie. A word of warning though – going ultra-skinny can leave the whole 'fit looking a little cartoonish. A better bet is to roughly correspond your tie width with the width of your jacket lapel.

Check yourself out

One advantage to a lighter build is that you (like Eddie Redmayne, below) can rock bold patterns and fabrics in your tailoring that might be a bit full-on on a stockier fella. Try a dots or windowpane check for a fresher, more adventurous take on your basic smartwear, or go all out in a party-ready print.
