Perfect Proportions

Hey guys, I'm doing a little study on the proportions of clothes and how they relate to heigh and what not.

So here is what I need. Please post pictures of guys you've seen, be it on SF or the runway, or random shots of celebrities, who in your opinion have the perfect proportions. I'm not talking about the physical/muscle proportions, but rather the ratios created by their clothing; i.e. tops:bottoms, sleeve length:exposed arm, shorts:exposed leg, shirt length:distance from wrist, etc.

My main focus is to find the "perfect" proportions desired by average height to tall men. I'm looking at what different ratios make someone appear bigger/taller/smaller/etc.

The majority of pictures should come from a streetwear esthetic, but I could also use some more formal looks.

EDIT: Hehe, couldn't help but notice my awesome post count.

well it doesn't hurt that its male model will chalker who has perfect proportions IMHO, but what i think i like about these sihlouettes is that they accentuate the desirable v-shape and are cinched in perfectly where they are supposed to be. even with the slightly boxy and relaxed suit 3rd from the left their is still that general form.

That's because you're not a nerd. Go back to hanging out with leggy, statuesque girls while we sneer derisively at you behind your back and cry ourselves to sleep.
