In the last article we talked about the basics options you need to know before buying a suit. Today we're going to talk about what kind of suit is most flattering on different body types. Some guys have specific needs when it comes clothing that flatter their body type, while others have it fairly easy. Read on if you find it hard to make things look right on your body!

Tall and Skinny

Go For Heavier Fabric

If you're tall and skinny, get heavier fabrics to add some proportion and additional weight to your body. Lighter fabrics will hang on your body like a thin layer and make you look more frail, so look for fabrics like tweed or a heavier weight worsted wool.

Stick With Light Colors

Lighter colors always make things appear more bulky, so use this to your advantage. Stay away from pinstripes (that lengthen) and dark colors (that are slimming) and choose a lighter color such as khaki or gray.

Choose A Higher Button Stance

Three buttons will look more flattering on a tall guy because it has height and length that is proportional to his body. You can even go with a two button jacket if you'd like but  choose one with a button stance that's closer to your solar plex than your navel.

[youtube=] A great suit will feel like a suit of armor - it gives you a whole different level of swagger. Nothing makes me feel more like a confident man than when I'm in a killer suit. If I could, I'd wear a suit all day, everyday, whatever the occasion. I'll be sharing my passion for suits through a series of article on suits. This particular article is going to take you through the basics of purchasing a suit. In the next few articles I'll talk about how to find a suit that fits your body type, talk about how to look for quality, and lots more. So read on to make sure you know exactly what to look for to ensure that your next suit is one of the best of your life.

Step 1: Know Why You're Buying A Suit

A suit is kind of a big purchase for a man, so this means you need to know as much as you can about choosing the right one before shopping. Otherwise, you may end up with a suit that won't look or feel right, and end up in your closet rack for decades without use. The first and foremost question you should ask before a purchase is:

What will be the main purpose of the suit?

  • If you're looking for something that you'll wear to the office often, then keep it dark and classic.
  • If you're looking for a suit to wear to key special occasions, then black or navy is a safe bet.
  • If you're looking for an interview suit, you want to be well dressed but not better dressed than the guy interviewing you, so don't break the bank on it.

Step 2: Deciding What You Want

Do you know if you want one button, two buttons, or three buttons? Do you want a peak lapel? Do you want side vents? What kind of fabric and color do you want? Overwhelmed or confused? Don't worry, I'll guide you through the options.

The Best Hairstyles for Your Face Shape

One of the biggest mistakes I see guys make with their hair is following hair trends that don't fit their face shape. For example, just because the faux hawk is popular does not mean that a guy with a long face should go for it. Not only does a flattering haircut strengthen your best facial features and hide your flaws, but it also enhances your overall image. There are seven basic shapes: oval, diamond, round, square, rectangle, oblong, and triangle. Pull your hair back from your face, look in the mirror, and examine the outline, then choose from the following categories that most closely fits your face. You probably won't fit into an exact category, but having a sense of your general face shape will help you decide on the right haircut.

[youtube=] So much of success in the music industry involves branding, but I like Ne-yo because he has the raw talent to back up the self-marketing. I want to give you guys some motivation and a short reminder in keeping up your sharpest image at all times. Let's get to it. To a lot of guys, keeping up their image is more work than pleasure. Most guys won't hesitate to spend 5 hours watching a sports game, but will rationalize themselves out of spending 5  minutes on tidying up their look. The truth is that we all know how much it does make a difference in our personal and professional lives. But why don't men care as much as women? Because we don't have as much social pressure and motivation to do so. I hate to talk about gender stereotypes but it's true that men are pressured more than women to be the caretakers / head of the household. Men can get by without glamorizing themselves because most men make up for it through giving value in these other ways.


A gorgeous girl with stellar image walks into a room. Every guy turns to look. A guy with a killer style walks into a room. Do the women turn to look?


I'm merely remarking on the paradox of asking a masked man...who he is...
So like thousands of others, you're here to continue building an attractive image... If there's any piece of advice that I would consider a "fundamental law" in terms of building an attractive image, it's this: Never put up a false image. Sounds simple enough. You're probably thinking "duh, no need to read this article." And if this is you, maybe you're right. Maybe you present yourself honestly -- no part is fabricated or false. The "false image" has to be the greatest self-sabotaging agent in terms of attraction. Everything from mistrust from others to women being repelled is rooted in it. On top of the social setbacks, it's responsible for much of the insecurity, sense of inadequacy, and lack of self-esteem one eventually feels. This bullshit is a poison. Yet, all of us have had a taste. It's our go-to medicine when we feel that our core isn't enough. It's our quick fix short-cut when we feel like we can get away with it. The real killer is the fact that NONE OF US will admit it. That's the tricky thing about facades. Your ego will summon an army to defend and rationalize it before surrendering the lie.

What is a false image?

Put simply, a false image is pretending to be something or someone you're not. Put another way, it's a social mask to hide the real you. The image I am talking about is deeper and thicker than the fabric on your back. It is everything that you project with your words, actions, mannerisms, style, lifestyle and more. For example, are you going around telling people you're a total player when the prospect of approaching a cute girl sends chills down your spine? Are you acting like you know everything about stocks when you just started learning about it last week? Have you ever been asked about your past love life and found yourself exaggerating the figures and stories? If you can relate to this, then you know what it feels like to manage a false image. We've all had experiences when we were on the receiving end of such "white lies." If you're like me, you probably smile and keep it to yourself, but inside you can easily read that this guy is just an insecure guy who cares too much about what other people think.
