In picking the right suit for your body, remember: be confident and know your body type. Two of the hallmarks of this classic suit that continue to make it appropriate for today's larger men are the three-button, single-breasted blazer and the plain-front trousers. A three-button blazer, like a two-button blazer, will never go out of style; however, the three-button blazer, particularly when the top button is left undone, has the advantage of elongating the body of a heavy-set man, thereby making him appear taller and thinner. If you’re dying to wear a double-reasted blazer and you’re packing a few extra pounds, don’t despair; the extra layer of fabric will smooth out additional lumps and bumps. Also, as long as the lapels meet below the waist, the V-effect created by a double-breasted jacket will make you seem taller. In addition, larger men should look for jackets with side venting or double venting to conceal their wider posteriors while sitting or moving. When it comes to your bottom half, picking the right suit for your body entails choosing a suit with plain-front trousers. This will slim your belly and pelvic region if you’re a little on the chunky side, whereas pleated pants will draw unwanted attention to this area of your body. In fact, pleated trousers should be avoided by all body types.
