The Right jacket and the way you button it can deceive the eye. Cover up your shortcomings, and give you more or less bulk where you need it.
Lengthen your silhouette by wearing a one-button jacket with natural shoulders. A deep V will give length to your torso and the impression that you're taller.
A close-fitting three-button suit has the shortest V of all, widening and shortening the torso. Remember to fasten only the middle button-the effect will remain.
A double-breasted jacket gives more width; the button stance and the extra cloth add bulk. Ensure the jacket fits well around the waist; too much loose cloth will make your look skinnier.
A two-button jacket gives a similar slimming effect as a one-button jacket, with a deep V between the lapels to lengthen the torso. Keep the fit snug to avoid excess cloth, which can add bulk.
