Most good fashion advice tells people to do a few things.

The most important rule of learning how to dress well is learning what looks good on you. A large part of that is determined by fit.

More than half of the results for “men’s fit guide” focus on suits.

What sources for fit exist then?

Amazon understands this, sort of. They’re trying to make it easier to determine fit without physically trying on clothing, but I think that’s 1–2 years off.

How are retailers helping?

What’s the takeaway from all this?
