Skinny/Slim Fitted Suits
If you’re on the shorter side, you don’t want to wear baggy suits that will make you look as wide as you are tall. You want to wear a suit that creates the illusion of a taller frame, something a slim-fitted suit will do for you.
Remember this also applies to your pants even when you don't wear a full suit.

Some say, as you can read in our blog post here, that vertical stripes is a shorter man’s best friend, as the stripes help create the illusion of a longer body. That’s why you should avoid horizontal stripes, as they will make you appear wider, and thereby shorter.

Crop your Pants
If your suit pants are too short, it will cut off your legs at a rather awkward and unflattering place, making your legs appear shorter than what they are. Having your suit pants tailor made will take care of this problem for you, as they will crop the pants at just the right place, to make sure the pants are not too long nor too short. Your tailor is likely to crop your pants a few centimeters above the ankle, as this is the slimmest point of your legs.
Remember to always dress what flatters your body!
