For the trousers, given that I am a larger than usual sized man, I decided to experiment with a trouser waist band which was 3 inches wide and to increase the rise in the trousers. This was an excellent choice as it has meant that I am now definitely making the transition from 'attempted skinny jeans' look into the 'I accept middle age is approaching' look. By doing this I have also given my stomach a chance to be holstered into the pants to avoid looking like I am spilling over my waist line. This has been a real battle for me over the last three years with tight pants pulling in at the waist and 'pumping' up the tyres because of the pressure. The easiest way to slim yourself is to allow for more in the waist so you aren't putting pressure on your mid region to over-hang.
Of course, I am not offering full suits at the moment. So if you wanted to create something like this you can choose from the following:
