principles of Style: #398

Let’s talk body shapes…very tall guys should stay away from vertical stripes, including pinstripes, since they tend to accentuate height; horizontal stripes and windowpane plaids are more flattering patterns…short guys should avoid cuffed trousers, long suit jackets, and loud patterns; pinstripes and other subtle stripes, and dark solid colors, are your best bet since they visually lengthen the body…heavyset guys shouldn’t wear bold patterns of any sort; pinstripes and solid colors, especially dark ones, should be your friends…tmoS #398
