Superdry have released this informative new infographic for men, on how to pick the right jacket/coat for your body shape.

Do you know what coat suits you best?

Now AW16 has arrived it’s the perfect time to pick out the right jacket/coat, but men do you know what suits your body shape? When it comes to shopping online there isn’t much advice out there for fashion-savvy men looking to top up their winter wardrobe. Superdry has created a graphic to help men take on the elements in style, and get the right jacket/coat for their shape.

Did you know?

If you’re an INVERTED TRIANGLE – your arms, chest and shoulders are generally a bit bigger, with your hips and waist coming up smaller. Be subtle and opt for an unstructured jacket to accentuate your build – why not go for a pea-coat, polo shirt and jeans?

If you’re a TRAPEZOID – your chest and shoulders are a bit broader, with slimmer hips. Generally classed as ‘athletic’ body shape, you want to draw attention to your hips, so go for a bomber jacket that stops at the perfect point, as well as a white t-shirt and jeans to complete the look.

If you’re OVAL – you’re a little rounder around the centre of your body with slim arms and legs, try adding width to your shoulders to create a square shape streamlining from your top half down to your legs. Go for a longer trench coat.

If you’re a TRIANGLE – your chest and shoulders are a little narrower than your waist and hips. Avoid looking bottom-heavy by opting for an open structured jacket to draw attention to your chest area. Why not try a structured blazer with a smart shirt and chino trousers?

Take a look at the infographic below: The infographic serves as a useful tool to ensuring you’re showing off the best parts of your body, as well as keeping up-to-date with the season’s best coat styles!
