Alright, I got some fit questions for you guys out there.
So the vibe I'm getting is that different body types look better in certain clothing. Yep, that makes perfect sense. So I'm not a midget or look like I'm on 'roids, but I'd say I'm a bit shorter and more muscular than the average person here. As a general rule, should I try and buy slimmer clothes to give the illusion of being taller/thinner? For example, I recently bought a pair of Levi's 501 and 514 in the same size. Despite there seeming to be much more hype for 501s on this forum, I seem to like the way the 514s look more. While the 501s are good and I wear them, their looser fit makes a sort of unflattering silhouette on me (saggy ass). Likewise goes for a pair of Gap khakis I bought, and don't even get me started on t-shirts. So my question is, what should I try and do? Do you think I'm right and the cut of 501s/Gap khakis are just not for me, or maybe should I just try to size down a pair or two? As a rule of thumb, should I try and buy more slimming clothes to compliment my body type (in an opposite way)? At the same time, I do have a rather limited wardrobe, and maybe just as long as I pair looser clothes with looser clothes it will look alright. For instance, the only shoes I wear right now are Vans Authentics, which really look well with slimmer pants, but not as much with looser fits. Perhaps if I picked up some chukka/DB style shoes and a little looser/heavier shirt I'd match them with the 501s.
Any insight is more than welcome.
