We're told that the 'upside down triangle' is the ideal physique. It'll fill out your clothes perfectly, it's the go-to Hollywood shape, it'll help you get those all-important swipes on a Sunday evening Bumble stint and so on and so forth. But it's not necessarily true. Look to Eddie Redmayne, and there's definitive proof that slighter guys can fill out a suit just as well.
At the Audi Polo Challenge in Ascot, the Fantastic Beasts star pulled off a look perfect for those without the guns of a Love Island applicant. Which, being honest, is most of us.
The Ralph Lauren two-piece boasts a close fit, thus flattering Redmayne's shape and focusing on the good: a trim bod. Better yet, a soft blue colour and crosshatch fabric adds some much-needed depth to balance out the skinny vibes. Nobody wants to look they've had their suit painted on, after all.
Then, complete with all the classic accessories: a similarly-colored tie for tonal points, sockless loafers for summer and a quiet pop of print via a pocket square. It's a swipe right from us. Get your own perfectly-fitted suit, and set aside cash for some alterations.
