Learning how to dress nice for guys is a big deal, why? Because you get to learn all the great ways, tips and tricks you can use to always look nice and sharp with most of your outfits!
Here are some great things to watch out if you want to dress nice all the time:
The key to a suit looking good is your suit’s fit.
Focus on the fit across the shoulders because getting the chest and waist altered is a relatively easy job. Be cautious about wearing a period suit unless you’re pursuing a total period look because in isolation the suit starts to look like a novelty.
A watch is like a piece of art, Choose it because you love it, not because you think it might make money.
Watches are personal, it marks your passage through time. But you also have to be practical.” Aesthetically, functional, rugged sports models go with anything and can take the hard knocks of everyday wear.
Colour can be timeless too, when it comes to color, less is still more: “You just need a bit of it, in one garment.”
If you’ve invested money and thought in your clothing, look after it. Use wooden hangers for shirts and shoe trees for your best shoes;
have your suit dry-cleaned and pressed; wash your clothes regularly and, ideally, don’t tumble dry them and polish your shoes.
Equally, it’s not just the skin of your leather jacket that you need to care for, the same goes for the one you wear every day.
Establish a simple, but no less solid, grooming regime, brush your hair and cut your nails. After all, the devil resides in the details.
Your underwear is not the place to express your ‘personality’ and heavily-branded underwear lacks sophistication.
The style that has best stood the test of time, of course, is the cotton boxer short, likely because they take repeated washing, breath well and are comfortable against your skin.
Quality shoes are the kind of investment that should last 15 years or more.
Opt for classic styles such as brogues, loafers, or a plain, dark, five-eyelet Derby on a round-toe last.
Accessories like ties and pocket squares bring individuality to classic clothing, but be careful how you use them. “It’s best to harmonize them with what you’re wearing by picking out a colour or two. Or even to juxtapose them entirely,”.
“What you don’t want is to match them up.” When it comes to curating shirt and tie combinations, wear your tie or pocket square in a darker shade than your jacket. And don’t overdo the accessories either – if in doubt, think less is more and take one element away. “You’re aiming for an air of nonchalance,” adds Hill. “You just need one point of interest.”
There’s are few things less stylish than a man dressed as he thinks he should dress rather than in what he genuinely feels suits who he is. There are caveats to that, of course: there are no prizes for dressing like a rodeo clown unless indeed you are one.
But whatever you’re wearing, you have to own it. Genuine style icons are those who go their own way with self-confidence that comes from their clothes being a second skin, not a costume.
Style is not merely about self-expression; it’s also about being dressed appropriately for your environment. Think of clothes as being codes: you need the right combination to work with the setting you’re in – and that’s whether it’s a formal dinner or a lazy Sunday in the pub. The worst style is one which is out of place. Is this a kind of conformity? No, as one of Tom Ford’s oft trotted out fashion quotesexplains, it’s a mark of respect for others. And about feeling comfortable in yourself. When in doubt, overdress.because the frames will look tatty soon enough anyway.
The temptation may be to wear a classic style, but modern technical fabrics in darker shades and easy cuts are making coats what they should be – lightweight and breathable but also properly protective.
“Changes in seasonality, the climate and buying habits are making heavy wool coats seem out of keeping now.
“Think of a coat instead as being your final layer – one you can wear as much or as little under as required.” A field or bomber jacket is a good all-rounder but if you need to dress up, go for a short always a case for ripping them up”.
That, after all, is how style advances, little by little. “Enjoy the freedom there is now to make mistakes.”
