Skinny suits trend

Last year we saw the rise and rise of skinny jeans. This season tailoring takes on the skinny look and gives suits a rock ‘n’ roll edge by making a much slimmer silhouette.

Suit jackets have been refined with shorter and narrower lapels, suit trouser legs have got a whole lot skinnier while the popularity of skinny ties continues to grow. So if you’re looking for a great new going-out look or office style, opt for skinny suit styling and start a new smart-rebellion trend.

I’ve even seen a lot of guys teaming their suit with pumps or deck shoes to give it a casual yet fashionable edge.

Things to consider when choosing your suit:

  • Make sure that the waistline of your trousers sits comfortably. As a general rule trousers with pleats are better for those with larger tummies while flat front trousers give skinny guys a fuller shape
  • The hem of the trousers should reach the top of your shoes and cuffless trousers can make you look taller
  • Sleeve lengths of your jacket should reach the base of your thumb so that it shows half an inch to an inch of your shirt cuff.
  • The waist of your suit jacket should easily fit across your stomach.
  • Make sure that you that you have free movement of your arms.
