Thin gentlemen, particularly those who are somewhat taller, can benefit greatly from double-breasted suits, as they will give a fuller appearance to the figure; on larger men, double-breasted suits can have a tendency to draw attention to the midsection

Large man
- If you have a bigger stomach, avoid horizontally striped clothing. Vertically striped shirt and suits will make you look taller and slimmer. The thin stripes are better than wide ones.
- Black suit with white shirt have a big contrast that draws attention to your stomach. Wear similar hues.
- Always wear a pocket square (handkerchief), this will draw attention to your chest.
