What type of suit?

My husband has yet to buy his suit for our daughter's wedding. I was hoping for a little advice from you all. He is short (5/5") and stout! What type of jacket would look best on him ~ single button, two or more buttons, double breasted? He just needs to have a black suit to walk her down the aisle.

  • Single breasted, definitely. Double-breasted suits make one broader.

    Head to a GOOD suit shop for assistance in fitting him just right.

  • gdiamante gave good advice. Definitely go to a suit store and have him measured and fitted. A short man (my husband is short) should wear a single breasted suit and make sure the jacket is tailored, not bulky, and not too long.
