As men get older, they tend to increase their waist and hip size which creates a triangle shape from the chin down. Men wanting to hide their waistline should opt for patterned blazers and solid coloured trousers and this combination will take the focus away from the tummy zone.

Fitted polos and roll necks are good for promoting a slender look. Avoid skinny fit jeans, as these simply highlight the larger areas. Vertical stripes are also good for creating a streamlined effect.

Whether you work out a lot and therefore have a muscular chest, or you are simply made that way, large shoulders and thighs and a narrow waist can make buying good fitting clothes difficult. Even if you are proud of your physique, don’t be tempted to show it off with tight fitting tops, as this isn’t a good look. Instead, opt for tops made from cotton and spandex as this will show off your broad shoulders, as well as give a fashionable tailored look. Wear round neck tee shirts and avoid v necks.
