Buying Guide

There are a lot of great menswear companies making high quality clothes to fit most guys and most budgets. There are even niche markets for the XXXL guy, and a very small gentleman can probably do quite well in the J.Crew kids shop. Perhaps unexpectedly, one guy who has been overlooked is the athlete. Most clothes off the rack are either made for the average American male (i.e., skinny shoulders and an expanding waistline) or the “in-shape” guy (essentially his waist is not larger than his chest). This leaves Athletic Guy looking like Bruce Banner in transition or wearing slouchy clothes to work. There’s light at the end of the tunnel, though: these ten brands make excellent clothing that flatters and athletic build, and we’ve picked out some staples for your wardrobe.
