Spanx for Men: Sucking It Up to Make a Better First Impression

No matter what your gender, thin is more in than ever when it comes to getting a job or a promotion. And to the relief of some and the chagrin of others, it's no longer just women who are attempting to trim the fat in their job searches. For years, females have been stuffing themselves into Spanx at Oprah's behest, in order to look slimmer and smoother.

But now, when the working world is more competitive than ever, men are streamlining their look as well. Products like Spanx for Men and the Slim Suit from Mohan Custom Tailors are becoming increasingly popular, and it's not so much about looking as dapper Don Draper as it is about looking like the best candidate for the job.
