LESSON 1: FIND YOUR OWN FIT-
Constructing a powerful outfit takes skill, but it's only half the battle. "That's a perfectly nice dress shirt he's wearing," says Rapoport. "If you're not wearing a tie, you need a shirt with a collar that stands up and his does." But the sturdy effect is ruined with an ill-fitting coat. At 6 foot 7, he likely gets them custom made. Take advantage of the tailor, advises Rapoport. "He's already big, he doesn't need shoulders that make him look better. If he takes it down by two sizes, he'd look more put together." less

On last night's premiere of his new show, "Breakthrough with Tony Robbins", the self-help guru gives everyday Americans a mental makeover. His tactics for "unleashing the power" has inspired the likes of Hugh Jackman and Serena Williams. Not mention the millions of people who buy his steady stream of empowerment books.



But what about Tony? He gives and he gives and he never takes time for himself. It's about time someone offered him some assistance in his problem area: his style. While motivational speakers have specific sartorial requirements for reaching a large audience, the message they send through their look has to be spot on. And right now, Tony's sending the wrong message.



Matrix overcoats. Club Monaco meat-packing district shirts. Tight black bouncer t-shirts. Has anyone ever offered him fashion advice, that wasn't named Steven Seagal? Things are about to change.



We recruited, GQ's Style Editor, Adam Rapoport--a man who, like Tony, has empowered countless Americans to take control of something they just can't tackle. "The biggest thing is to get clothes that fit right," says Rapoport. "Tony is such a big presence, he should let his personality shine through, and not be overpowered by his outfit."



With that in mind, Rapoport examined photos of the guru through the years and offered some sage advice on how to keep his "Giant Within" from getting out and going shopping.
