Suit suggestions for a short guy?
I am about 5’5” and I have a very fit/athletic body, I am not bulky (that would be horrible for a short guy). Still young early 30s.
I always buy a suit OTR but lately I’m thinking I should try M2M. The suit is not for work but rather formal events or for a nice dinner.
I currently have 2 suits (slim fit) one from Hugo Boss (had to do a lot of alterations) and the other from Daniel Hechter (only the length of the sleeve was alerted). Lately was thinking of getting the CK X-Fit as its seems to fit very well to my body.
What do you think of 3pc suit? I’ve never had one before, lately I think they are cool. I don’t know much about vest.
How about a 4 button suit? I understand that this is no longer in “fashion”. But I’m not really looking for a business suit. This may not look good for a short person?
Patterns? I prefer solid or pin/self-stripe.
Pleats? Was thinking of single and no more… OR none?
Contrast pockets, I actually like contrast button holes/threads. Oh I do not like contrast elbow pads!
I am up for a mix of modern and classic or modern design. Something that stands out a bit not too flashy.
