Men with large frames must wear pants with a loose waist to take emphasis off of a heavy midsection. Pants with a small waist cause the stomach to protrude over the top of the pants. Wearing low-rise pants that sit on the hips instead of at the waist prevents this problem, while wearing dark colors helps to create a slim silhouette.

Men that are shorter than 5 feet 9 inches must avoid wearing pants that bunch at the bottom because they make legs appear shorter than they are. Wearing pants that graze the top of the shoes gives the appearance of length. Wear pants with a flat front, shallow front and back pockets and a short inseam. Look for shirts that are short and narrow and have collars with points, slim shoulders, high arm holes and a slightly tapered waist.
