The 10 Worst Fashion Mistakes: Men

Zac Frank

The Jacket Fit


Any suit jacket should fit your shoulders. Too often, men wear jackets that are far wider than their actual shoulders. Some men go too far in the other direction. How do you tell?

Too narrow: When you look at your back in a mirror, you’ll see the fabric bunching, making small ripples on the top of your back.

Too wide: When buying a suit, get the smallest possible jacket size that will fit you. Go up one size at a time. Buy the first size up where those ripples disappear. You don’t need any more room.
