I’d say that this whole question is a bit more complicated than just the four body-types. For example, I am moderately v-shaped, which would suggest natural, unpadded shoulders. However I have a large head, and I need to be careful that too small a shoulderline doesn’t make it look huge. So that is something I need to balance to create an overall pleasing look. The question of cultural context also needs to be considered: For suits I prefer single-pleated pants. They make sense for me, because I have runner’s thighs and a bit of a hollow back. But I have a whole bunch of pleated odd trousers which I bought for casual (evening) wear without a jacket that I never seem to wear. In a world of flat-front it just doesn’t feel right. So now I’m considering buying flat-front trousers, just haven’t gotten around doing so yet.
