Bodybuilders and muscular men wearing suits can be hard to look at. They work so hard at the gym but when it is time to attend a formal event they are lost at where to buy a suit that fits. They either don't know made to measure exists or they believe the myth that it costs a ton of money. In this post we will tackle the fit, colors/patterns, personalization's and accessories you should be wearing.
This is the key point, if you don't get this right it will ruin the whole outfit. It doesn't matter if it is a $500, $5,000 or $50,000 suit, fit is crucial. Here are the main areas you will need to focus on:
If you are a competitive bodybuilder like some of our clients you may have to have two different outfits, one for your lower weight and one for your competition weight. We did this for a client, who has a 3 month wardrobe and a 9 month competition wardrobe.
Bolder colors and patterns will usually be a bad look for you. When you enter a room most eyes will be on you anyways, you do not need to go overboard here. This is our suggestion, and you can do what you want, so we will leave that up to you but here are our general guidelines.
These touches will make the look and tie everything together.
As mentioned above anything skinny will look terrible on you.
Made to measure is your best option at the end of the day. You can choose the fabric and personalization's that fit your body style. You do not need to worry about the cost of alterations or buying something way too big for you.
If you are wanting to work with what you have, find a highly recommended tailor in your area to taper and hem your clothing. They can also take out the shoulder pads which add a lot of bulk.
If you have any questions or would like to use us for your next outfit, please do not hesitate to reach out to me personally.
