    anything you want to really, just get slimfit size ones so that you'll look just perfect. Too big & you'll look like a kid wearing your dad's clothes, too small & you'll look like you can't afford dry cleaning ^_^

    The color of your cloth should not really depends on your physique, but more to your complexion and hair color.

    You can order a color book from http://www.colormebeautiful.com/ that tells you what your color season is. I used to bring my color book to the stores to make sure I only get the colors that work for me. But by now I have them memorized, so no need to do that anymore.

    Knowing what colors work and don't work for you is really important.

    If you can form a good outfit out of it, then go ahead. I would still stay away from the reed though, but beige should be just fine.

    I'm certainly about pushing fashion boundaries, but I'm not quite there on the red and beige. If it makes you feel good, rock it! Here's a picture I found, and I'm just not sold.

    Perhaps a discreet beige, quite professional looking, unassuming and versatile, might work.

    I like the red one, I have a similar one in red

    It depends on the wearer. In the example posted by Riallus, they make long, thin legs look even more spindly.

    I agree some designs look awful, I think if the brand and the person wearing can pull them off then they look great.

    I do recognise that the look portrayed is considered hip, but to me legs spindly as those should be faded away and not pushed front with trousers.

    I don't think it is the legs per se. Its more the fact that good tailoring should bring out the good and hide/distract from the not so good in ones physic.

    That's why I don't get this look.

    You should wear what you like, lead not follow!

    Personally, I like to see skinny guys in black and gray, but we saw Capsula, and that guy is crazy skinny and rocks the bright colors:

    Red is a fantastic colour for a coat - I've owned many and they've all been Ferrari red.

    I believe there is a link between the colour you wear and the "cosmic rays" you attract and reflect. Matter of fact I remember reading a vaguely scientific article about it that correlated cancer rates across continents and highlighted how the drab western attire seemed to be a magnet for it due to some metaphysical reason.

    It could be something as simple as it very hard being depressed when you are dressed like this:



    As opposed to:



    Like a cascade effect. Or it could be the whole absorption/reflection thing based on wavelength, after all there is a reason why you notice a lot of spiritual people wear exclusively white and authorities love wear black.



    Colour and psychology is a fascinating subject and was something I paid a lot of attention to before my foray into the world of scents. I will add one more thing - it's all about the cut, it should accentuate your good points and hide your flaws.

    That always comes before the colour.
