An athletic fit body type is traditionally defined by clothing companies as a man whose chest measurement is eight inches more than his waist. This difference is called the drop. For athletic fit guys looking to get a regular off-the-rack suit to fit well, our advice is to get to know your tailor…well.
Most off-the-rack clothing is not made for the athletic body type. For the reason listed above, men who need an athletic fit have increasingly opted to get made-to-measure suits. Getting a custom suit made to your measurements used to be reserved for the wealthy or the well-connected. So what should you look for in a made-to-measure suit if you require an athletic fit? When athletic fit guys come to us with fit problems we tell them to focus on two key areas:. Any well-cut made-to-measure suit starts with good measurements.
That means assistance from either a friend or a tailor. In either case, the person who measures you should be focused on accuracy. Even guys with enviably athletic physiques have insecurities about certain aspects of their bodies. It will only lead to an ill-fitting made-to-measure suit.
Good measurements will give you the foundations of a great fitting suit. At Black Lapel we offer three different fits for our suits: We often suggest that guys go with a slim fit because we love the way it drapes on the frames of most guys, following their natural shape. But following the natural shape of an athletic fit guy with a sizeable drop and big upper arms and legs can backfire and make for a suit that is shaped like something made for Jessica Rabbit.
Athletic fit types should choose between the tailored and standard fits which have less waist suppression and are less tapered all around. Our rule of thumb is that younger athletic fit guys looking for a more modern look should stick with the tailored fit while mature gentlemen with an athletic body type who are seeking a more traditional look should opt for a standard fit. Adding a vest to a suit is a great idea for any guy.
Getting a pair of pleated pants is not the deadly sin the fashion press has made it out to be. Traditionally pleated pants are always cuffed. Azure , Dec 14, Boss has decent suits that are quite slim, and you may be able to find them in your area. JayJay , Dec 14, Durden , Dec 14, I like Hugo Boss for that. Zenny , Dec 14, Here is a thread I can finally vent on this.
I am getting sick and tired of this obsession with a slim fit suit. Its a fad, you will blow a wad of cash on one and in a couple of years you are going to look stupid when everyone realizes that these slim fit suits make us look like 14 year olds and skinny toothpicks or extras on the set of Mad Men. It seems to me that this slim fit suit business and especially these thin ties is nothing more than a bunch of us trying to differentiate ourselves from those "other" suit wearers and somehow pin a fashion label on ourselves that we are somehow right for the moment.
My opinion is that slim fit is not smart. Slim fit suits look foolish, they did in the 60's and do today in the same way that leisure suits never were going to work. Additionally, the slim fit suit only works on skinny people they dont even work, they make you look even skinnier. Have you seen one on a muscular or even just a tad overweight person lately?
Oy vey, its like a fat woman in a mini skirt and blouse with hordes of clevage exposed. Plus they fit like shit, make your feet look like gunships and are constricting as hell.
