Best Silouhette for a tall man

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Dear Manton (and other silouette experts), Your post on 'Suits Silouhettes' was a fascinating reading, thanks a lot. As you seem to be an expert, I would like to ask you some questions about the best silouhette for a tall man, broad shouldered, long neck and big head, slim waist like me. First, the facts: I'm 6"25 tall (190cm), have high, squared shoulders 19"7 with long neck, 39"7 Chest, slim waisted 33" I was thinking about a A&S type of cut for DB suits and a 2 1/2 button cut for SB suits. Could you please give me some advices on cuts, lapels (semi-wide?), gorge (medium?), button stance, coat lenght and trouser style,...? I will go the bespoke route in a couple of weeks during a trip to India so your advices are really appreciated. Do you know where I can find some pictures that could be used to explain those details to the tailor? Also, in this very informative 'Silouhette' post, I think that information on trousers cuts in relation with coat cuts is really missing. More info on that would be very valuable for all of us. Thanks in advance for your answer and again thanks to all the great posters on this site. Cheers, Bespoke_newbie

There is a separate trouser thread here: http://www.styleforum.net/cgi-bin....trouser Given the build you describe, I would go for a coat with as little shoulder padding as you can bear, and downward sloped shoulder with no rope. 2 button or 2 1/2, with a high button stance. DB would also be good, 6 on 2 stance. Gorge just a shade below the collar bone, lapels halfway accross the chest, or just a fraction less.
