Men’s Fashion 101

8 Sep

It has been asked of me by a few different guys to do a post about Men’s fashion, clothing and tips on how to dress overall.  This really shocked me, but I accepted this request with open arms because I love nothing more than helping people and more importantly helping people feel and look their best. I have a few style tips that I am more than willing to hand out, especially to the male gender. Ladies out there, you know this was not easy for a man to do – ask for help. Anyway, back to the clothes.

Fit. The first guideline for men, and woman too is fit. I am not talking about being fit or in shape, I am discussing the fit of your clothes; shirts, pants, jackets etc.  The fit of any garment is really what makes the piece look great on. Clothing straight off the rack is not made for everyBODY, so getting them tailored makes any piece look so much better. Pants should be hemmed if they too long and bunch at the ankle. If the sleeves of a jacket are too long those should be tailored as well. The sleeve should end right where the wrist meets the hand.

Wearing over sized clothes. People often hide behind their clothes, because they feel it makes them looks better. When in reality large, ill fitting clothes make you look well, big.  The shoulder seam should fit right at the edge of your shoulder, not any higher- this will create shorter sleeves, or any lower on the arm- this look sloppy and the sleeve will be too long.

No pleats please. The most flattering and universal pant fit is one without pleats. Whether is a khaki or a dress pant, flat front pants are the way to go! Don’t forget to get those pants hemmed to the correct length. Bring the shoe with you that you will most likely wear with that pair of pants to ensure the proper hem length.

Ditch the white sneakers. We all know that you play sports or err did play sports. So there is no reason to always be ready for the b-ball court. I am not saying to go out and buy a pair of designer sneakers, but you could switch them out for a pair of sleek Nikes, the always classic Converse or even a super cool pair of Puma’s or New Balances. I totally believe that shoes or sneakers should make/complete an outfit, but when they stick out from the rest of the ensemble this is never a good thing. The sneakers don’t necessarily have to match the outfit, but should at least be tonal with the other colors in the outfit.

Denim. If you are in the market for a new pair of jeans and don’t know which style to buy, at least make sure the wash is dark. This is the most flattering and versatile wash out there. The style of the jean will totally depend on your body type. As I mentioned above if they too long get them hemmed. When you take them to get hemmed, ask the Tailor or Seamstress to re-attach the original hem. This will make it look as though you purchased them right from the store at the perfect length.
