Suit Designers always start their designs at the lapels and shoulders. They will add large width lapels to vintage suits, medium width to contemporary, and narrow width to newer designs.
Men with medium builds can get away with almost any size lapel but should make sure they find a suit with a natural slope to it. Some suits to look at are Coppley, Mantoni, and Zanetti. These designers all provide a unique look while still maintaining a nice size lapel and shoulder spread for the medium sized man.
Large men need to look into getting broader lapels and lightly padded shoulders. Suits to consider are Haggar, Bill Blass, and Perry Ellis. These designers provide a nice lineup for the over sized man.
Thin men should look into more aggressive looks with thick shoulder pads and narrow lapels. This look can be found in any Jones of New York, Sean John, Michael Kors, or Kenneth Cole suit. These suits make thin men look more muscular and fit.
Suit pants differ in style from designer to designer. Thick lapels will almost always be matched up with double pleats. Thin lapels will have flat fronted pants to compliment them, while medium sized will have standard pleats.
Lean men need to wear flat fronted pants to focus in on the leg rather than the suit. These pants help make the thinner man look thicker and more muscular up top.
The medium sized man can wear any style of pants he deems appropriate. However, this man should take into account the type and style jacket he chooses to accompany the suit pants.
The big man needs to wear something that draws more attention to the suit than the leg inside. Pleats and double pleats are perfect for covering up larger than normal legs.
