A man’s style can be very much dictated by body shape, but we don’t see a lot of guidance when it comes to what would look best on which body type. Women, however, get to compare themselves against hourglasses, pears and apples and discern which shape relates most to them - before receiving guidance on what would look best on each. Guys have to work it out for themselves.
However, clothing retailer Superdry has decided to put together an in depth guide around body shape and jacket style – perfect as autumn arrives and we go out to make those important investment purchases for the colder months.
You may not be familiar with the terms 'inverted triangle', 'oval' and 'slim curve' when considering your body shape, but all will become clear in the guide below. Learn what looks best with a bomber jacket, how a long trench coat can create a slim lined look and why a pea coat looks best on those who hit the shoulder press at the gym and pick out a jacket perfect for you.
