Everyone needs a good suit. I myself have different suits for different occasions. And I’m going to pass on some style tips I have picked up.

  1. Buy a shirt with the suit, you are going to want a shirt that works with the suit but also when trying on make sure the cuff of the shirt is between half an inch to an inch longer then the sleeve of the suit jacket.

  2. Don’t be afraid to go tie-less and show off a little man-cleavage. Most guys will undo the top button, but this will remind people of those days at school wearing those loose school shirts. If you have a firm shirt undo the second button. It will create lines that will fit in with the suit jacket and especially if you are wearing a waistcoat with it.

  3. This next one is a well-known tip; your belt must match your shoes! And if you really want, have it match your watch strap too. Continuity is key.

  4. If it’s for casual attire DO NOT wear a black suit. Wear something more comfortable on the eye, as well as on you. Maybe charcoal grey or something with a bit of colour, personally I like a deep blue with a white shirt. It allows me to wear it with the jacket or without and still look smart but fun.

  5. Wear something that makes you unique, now I’m not talking about a clown nose or face paint. But people’s eyes will focus on things that are different so wear something like a nice watch or a tie pin. Even cuff links that are a little quirky will add a new dynamic to your suit game.

The most important tip when designing a new outfit is how do you feel. Look in a mirror, stand tall, puff your chest a little and ask yourself “how do I feel?” If you feel good and powerful, if you get a sense of happiness from it, you are on the right track.
