How To Choose a Jacket Based on Your Height

When it comes to suit jackets, there are plenty of options for you to choose from. Single breasted, double breasted, center vent, side vents, jacket pockets with or without flaps and the number of buttons are all customizable to suit your preferences. However, certain jackets look better based on your height, and you don’t want to choose a jacket that clashes with your physique. At JBD Clothiers, we’ll help you choose the best jacket for you, but here’s a guide with some basic rule of thumb for choosing a suit jacket based on height.


A single-breasted three button jacket works well for tall men. Pockets with flaps help create a horizontal line that contrasts nicely with the vertical height of a tall man. A wide lapel can also be used to this effect, as it will accent the width of the chest and shoulders. The hem of the jacket can be worn longer to minimize the length of the legs. A side vented jacket works well for tall thin men as it gives them a fuller silhouette.


Shorter men will want a suit jacket that maximizes their height. This can be done with a one or two button jacket, which creates a longer V shape, giving vertical length to the torso. Side vents and pockets without flaps work well to create a taller profile, as do single breasted jackets with a high and slim lapel.
