jacket and sport coat should.
Room in the shoulders to allow full arm
movement but not so much room that the
shoulders are over extending the shoulder points
by more than ½ inch.
Room in the chest to fully button the jacket but
not enough to hide a baseball.
The blazer jacket sleeves should extend to the
wrist bone and show ¼ to ¾ an inch of shirt cuff

than six foot, and should lean on the shorter side
if you are shorter than five foot six.

trousers require a bit of personality to pull off and need to be
worn with care. The pros outweigh the cons here though; if you
can pull it off, the contrast looks great.
Quality Denim (aka Jeans) – Levi 501s, 505s or 531s work well,
