Tips for dressing well as a short skinny guy? What styles work, what make you look shorter/stockier?

I'm just recently starting to put a bit more effort into how I dress. Before it was just jeans, converse, and band tees. I want to fix that.

Currently working towards a kind of "rugged/blue collar" thing I guess; skinny jeans ("Levi's 510" skinny, 511s/similar styles aren't skinny/slim on me), work boots (Red Wing IRs, looking at 875s as well), sneakers, etc. I'm not gonna completely get rid of band tees and shit because that's perfectly acceptable in what I do/where I hang out (punk shows and such), I just don't want it to be the ONLY tops I have. I'm gonna pick up a few solid tees but again, I need more than just tee shirts.

basically how do I wear clothing and not look stubby as fuck, what should I look for in shirts to not look like an mfa drone, and is the look I'm currently heading towards something that looks good without being trendy shite?

I want to be able to buy clothing without feeling like I NEED to ask for opinions

wear whatever you want

clothing isnt going to make you taller or shorter

>> No.9558151

>>9558058
Get raw denim, not levi's
work boots are good idea
flannel shirts
denim jacket
chore coat

keywords:
workwear
heritage
americana

lurk and browse inspo until you can figure out clothes without asking for advice

top voted fits on MFA are not very droney
it's just the people looking for the advice (like you) that dress poorly

if you're short, try to avoid baggy/loosely fitting clothing

try to avoid horizontal stripes because they draw visual attention sideways

vertical stripes draw visual attention up and down, elongating the body

most stripes are fucking gay though, so just avoid them as a hole

>> No.9558183

>>9558151
this basically what I'm working towards so it's good to know I'm on the right track.

I know baggy/loose clothing is bad, which is my main issue. It's a real bitch to find fitting clothing at my size. Tight sleeves are just about impossible for me.

what is inspo

I've seen the comp albums of MFA drones looking for advice and looking like sloppy and baggy and I'm trying to avoid that, will look at top voted stuff. I hate the Bean boots and brown blazers type stuff though.

lookin at a bomber jacket rather than chore coat

will look into and likely disregard vertical stripes because I think stripes are pretty friggin ugly

how much stacking is too much stacking with denim, I'm ordering from N&F soon and I'm not sure how much I should have them hem

>> No.9558188

>>9558183
avoid stacking if you're short
avoid thick cuffs

cuff super thin if you want

>> No.9558198

>>9558188
I'm thinking 28" inseam then, so it'll be short enough (maybe?) to wear uncuffed and I'd only need to cuff it twice

I'm going super skinny btw, and so kinda worried that going too short will make boots (esp Red Wings) look like clown shoes

>if you're short, try to avoid baggy/loosely fitting clothing
I've always disagreed with this, even though it makes you look even shorter I love it when short guys pull baggy stuff off. Just look at Yohij, he's barely 5ft
(that said, you're not old, Asian, and wise)

>> No.9558211

>>9558203
That isn't baggy, tho, it's just long. It's long and drapey but it's well-fitting.

>> No.9558212

-wear fitting clothes
-low rise jeans to elongate your legs
-clothes with vertical stripes makes you look taller
-avoid clothes with horizontal stripes
-having cuffs make your legs appear shorter
-no dropcrotch pants
- go for low top sneakers instead of high top sneakers

>> No.9558216

don't wear jacktes below crotch level

well which is it, cuffs or no cuffs

having capri-length pants looks worse than either...

i think yohji is deceptively taller than he looks

hes always used as the example of an abnormally short person who pulls of baggy clothes but when photographed with other people he looks like 5'6-5'7, which isnt too bad for an old asian man

>> No.9558233

>>9558223
cuffs create a visual break from up to down
which is why i recommended thinner cuffs

it's just preference, i know a lot of people like to cuff their pants

it won't actually make you taller, you know..

>>9558198
what's your regular inseam, like from top down to your ankle? add 2 inches to that (two 1inch cuffs)

don't worry about clown shoes

unless you have size 11 feet or you wear ramones or both

This is 30" cuffed 3 times. The cuff is a bit thick for my liking, I like it thinner regardless of what looks best on short dudes. The boots are the only thing I cuff with, however.

Your short AND skinny, am i right? Then, general idea is to make your clothes draw attention to your upper half i.e. bright top, maybe vertical stipes, or PICTURES, and some chic for bottom. Go for it
