I prattle on a lot about proportion and fit. I think you’ve got fit down. So here’s a bit more about proportion. Two sweaters, two pairs of trousers, four radically different looks.
A fuller, shawl collar sweater worn with full cut, double forward pleated trousers.
The same trouser worn with a trimmer cut sweater in the style of Armani (he loves the sweater tuck.)
The same sweater worn with flat front, Donegal tweed trousers.
And finally, a return to the shawl collar sweater worn over a trimmer cut trouser.
If I take anything from this little experiment, it is a simple rule: fuller articles of clothing above the belt need trimmer articles of clothing below. Fuller trousers require slimmer cut coats, sweaters and shirts.
