MR. BRO ON HOW TO BE A SMART SHOPPER
Do you ever find yourself admiring those models in fancy magazines and hating your existence, bro? Don’t worry because you are not alone. Hundreds of men around the world wonder how to look drool-worthy in ordinary clothes. Mr. Bro is here to teach you bros what even evolution couldn’t--how to be a smart shopper and pick clothes that fit just right.
The first and the foremost step is to identify your body type. Don’t get thrown off by all the confusing sizes at the store. Remember getting the fit right goes way beyond just picking the right size.
Here’s your guide to becoming a smart shopper:
TYPE 1: THE AVERAGE BUILD
Everybody has a different body shape and structure. But a bro with an average build has shoulders broader than the mid-section of the body with lean legs. The muscles may not be overtly athletic, but are well defined.
Dressing for your body type is probably easier than the others. The visual balance between your waist and the upper body comes naturally so you can pull off something that is slightly over-sized or slightly skinny. The “Trapezoid” dude can flaunt any type of prints without throwing off the visual balance of his proportions. For formal events, buy trousers that are tapered to enhance your lean physique.
Remember, your physique is your asset, bro.
TYPE 2: THE INVERTED TRIANGLE
The bro with the inverted triangle body shape is most definitely ‘the jock’. This body type is similar to the trapezoid, just a more defined version of it. It is characterised by heavy muscle definition and slightly extreme proportions. Your goal is to pick clothes that bring a sense of balance to your ensemble. Slimmer bros may just walk out with a medium sized t-shirt without much hunting; however, shirting may require special assistance.
The V-neck t-shirt is ideal to flaunt your broad chest and creates a visual image that draws the attention from your chest to your narrow waist. If you are from the V-necks-are-so- corny club, you can always opt for crewneck shirts with graphics. When it comes to shirting, choose a shirt which says ‘slim-fit’ and get a size larger than the one you buy normally. Opt for ‘slim-fits’ instead of the ‘skinny’ ones when it comes to trousers.
TYPE 3: THE RECTANGLE
Bros of this build are usually narrow as a rail. You may not necessarily be skinny, but the same width of the shoulder and waist gives you an appearance of less muscle definition.
The point of the fit in this is to add definition to your body. Layering can be a good way to start. A smart layered knit can add definition to your shoulders, while at the same time enhance the waistline. A jacket can add bulk to your shape and will make your upper body look more muscular. While choosing bottoms, avoid pants that are boxy and opt for the ones that are slim and more fitting to create a deceptive look of muscularity. And with this bro, you will be fooling the ladies in no time.
Basically, the gospel truth about always looking good is that you must pick the right fit. So get shopping bro and prepare to turn heads your way! ;)
