As I’ve mentioned before, the average American man wears his clothes one or two sizes too large.
Another close friend, and longtime influencer on my personal style, Marwan Helal, has always understood the importance of a proper fit.
Marwan is 5’10″ 185 lbs – all muscle.
However, unlike most guys his size who think they’ve ““earned” a size Large or XLarge, Marwan knows better. For the most part, in American brands he wears a ”“Slim Fit” size Small or Medium (Club Monaco and Polo Ralph Lauren, for example). He even has a couple pieces in his closet in size XSmall.
After all, if you work hard in the gym and are in good shape, you might as well look the part. Ill-fitting or baggy clothing will make you look younger, skinnier, and sloppier – while proper-fitting clothing allow you to look leaner, more mature and yes, even a little tougher.
