While we've pointed out a broad picture of, four common male builds, we understand that bodies are also in 3D; height matters. Whether you're tall with a broad midsection, or short and muscled out, you'll need to take your overall height into consideration if you're going to really nail your wardrobe.
For smaller guys, begin by wearing your pants at your natural waistline (meaning closer to your bellybutton). This increases the leg line and makes your waistline look higher—thus extending the leg line further. Avoid light color, stacked, or printed trousers, and things like gaudy belts—these things will either cut your figure in half, or draw attention to the smaller parts of your body. When it comes to your upper half, make sure that your shirts are comfortably cut, while simultaneously no longer than just past your wrist. If you're able minimize, do so.
On the other end of the spectrum, if you're taller than the average guy (somewhere above 5'11” to 6'3”), you're looking for length to match your own. Make sure shirts are tall enough to tuck into your waist line, even if you're not wearing them that way. When it's comes to your bottoms, you can wear your denim stacked, or your pants cropped. Each hemline, whether stacked or cuffed, will shorten your leg and add balance. Jackets should never be anything but tailored—you don't want to look like you're swimming in your clothes. The overall length of a jacket should also hit somewhere between the top of your wrist and the middle of your palm. To avoid looking like an awkward NBA player, make sure the proportions of your entire outfit, from the bottom of your jacket, to the hemline of your pants, are in check.
