Dressing Tips and Clothes for Overweight Men
Wear V neck Shirts- V necks are good to create illusion that you have a slim neckline and it is perfect option for the people having double chin. Choose the shirts that emphasis on your chest area on your neck portion. The collars of the shirt should be pointed as will drag the attention to your face. Don’t choose turtle necks as will give you a shorter and heavier look.
Wear Jackets- Usually men like to wear jackets but overweight men should take extra care while choosing the one for you. It should be right under your buttocks as if you wear a short length jacket then it will highlight your skinny legs, arms and waist and if it is long then you will look like a huge bamboo wearing clothes. Make a perfect balance.
Fabric should be Heavy- You can wear the desired clothes but the fabric should be heavy. One can choose the knitted wool cardigans. Dress in layers is good option for you.

The lapels of the shirts should be narrow and plain. Also, dark colors like navy, brown, charcoal, black or gray are more slim that light gray or tan. So, go for it.
