Male H body shape
Which clothes to choose ?
I’m a man with a male H body shape, a rectangular, ectomorphic Type silhouette.
How can I enhance myself by highlighting my strong points ?
Gentlemen, we will look together at how to choose your ideal wardrobe.
. Male rectangular or H body shape : Reminder
Your silhouette is slender with structured shoulders aligned with the hips.
Your waist is very slightly or not at all marked.
The buttocks are not very angular.
. Your assets :
Your body shape is one of the most common with a so called rectangular chest.
Thin, slender, svelte and athletic, you have a well-proportioned and slender body !
You have a flat chest.
With your well balanced physique, you can always be chic, distinguished and seductive.
. Your objectives :
Gentlemen, your objective is primarily, if you are tall, to reduce your height by working on the vertical.
To widen your shoulders so as to structure your stature.
It is important to highlight your assets, those of a slender man with a well-proportioned body.
Your objective is to create outfits which keep the harmony of your silhouette.
. My advice :
> For the upper body highlight your chest by choosing tops which widen the shoulders.
> Add depth and thickness by wearing superimposed garments.
Thus you will give more volume to your normally flat chest.
> Be daring with vivid colours as they can only enhance your slender silhouette.
> Favour horizontal lines so as to widen your stature.
> For relaxed, “casual” outfits, tall men can wear pants with turn ups so as to reduce leg length.
> Don’t hesitate ever to wear accessories which will fill out the chest.
. Avoid :
Gentlemen, avoid when you can high waists in your casual outfits.
Clothes which are too big which will drown you.
For tall men, avoid garments too tight fitting which will point up even more your slimness.
Materials which are much too heavy.
It is important to banish completely vertical lines which accentuate your slender silhouette.
