We all know the saying, “clothes make the man,” but what does it really mean? Basically, it says that your style creates an impression about who you are, what you expect and what you look for in life. So before you buy, think about what you want your style to say. And, check these style pointers that every guy should know.
Fit Is Everything.
While comfort is important, how your clothes fit speaks volumes. Baggy, torn, dirty, wrinkled or too tight clothing never makes a great impression. When you buy a suit bring it to Flair and ask our professional tailor’s opinion on the fit. It may be perfect, but if not, he’ll be sure to make it so. The same goes for jeans, khakis, shirts and jackets.
It’s All About the Details.
Small details can influence your image. Pay attention to them when shopping for clothes. What types of cuffs or collars reflect your personality and fit your lifestyle. Do you prefer traditional ties or bow ties? What style of suit jacket frames your body best? Is your style more jeans and t-shirt, khakis and polo shirt, or a little of both?
Choose the right colors. If you have dark hair and eyes, rich deep colors like deep reds will get you compliments all the time. If you are fair-skinned with blonde hair, you may stand out in a corn-flower shirt that matches your blue eyes, but not in the burnt orange shirt you like so much.
Don’t be afraid to check with a stylist or someone in your life who has great taste. Or, stand in front of your mirror and be really honest. Does that sport jacket completely upstage you? Do you look washed out in that shirt?
Remember this rule of thumb: YOU wear the clothes, the clothes do not wear you.
When you decide, make sure your details are strong from top to toe. The right shoes, the right belt, and tie make the good outfit great. Then, remember to bring your garments to Flair. We’ll keep them looking their best so your style never lets you down.
