Considered to be the foundation of the wardrobe, it’s time to move on from jeans and T-shirts and stick to suits. It could be that someone resorted to the ‘suit route’ much earlier but never mind for those who’ve thought of joining the league later. From hiding that pot belly to adding a little illusion of height or making the posture erect, a well-cut and classy suit is capable of accomplishing all these and more. Since this is a vital purchase, better to read fashion books or consult experts beforehand. To ensure that you are doing it right, you will need to know the rules to follow to wear suits the right way. As regards colors are concerned, muted shades like blue, grey or the old favorite, black is welcome. Playing with the cuts and slight accessories however, is a matter of individual choice. In fact, there are some dynamic men’s hairstyles work with suit.
Take care to understand the difference between jackets and coats and invest on the latter wisely. Coats are meant forever. As much as they look trendy when worn by someone in their 30s, a slight change in the cut or style of wearing by someone in 50s can seal the deal. Evergreen and classic what we say!
Men keep your shirts well-ironed and crisp, such that the collars are stiff. Out of all things, it might occur was to why talk about the collar part. High collars are best carried off by big men and some even prefer them as a zone to hide that double chin! Shirt cuffs are better if larger than the suit ones. Coming to the fit, say no to body hugging shirts until of course you have a torso to flaunt. There are different styles you can choose, so no stopping you from those having multiple patterns. Besides, tailored ones can be a tad expensive for most, so opting for readymade ones in varied forms is safe too.
Everything from scarves to watches, cufflinks to ties and handkerchiefs constitute this category.
Did you know shirts with cufflinks look much classy than those not having the same? Now there are blings, jeweled to great vintage ones and the choice must definitely be guided by age.
Ties we know are necessities for most young men, especially when attending meetings or events. But the designs these boys flaunt can never work for men past their prime. Conservative colors like blacks, blues, browns, a little bit of vertical prints but definitely no floral and preferably in silks will serve better.
While many may oppose to scarves, but reality said, hunks can pull of their casual look draping them, without falling back on jackets.
Handkerchiefs are essentials. But better to keep the white cotton ones in the top suit pocket or simply carry a sober one having androgynous shades only. These are things that speak volumes.
Why spend much on watches? Vintage ones from branded companies are perfect. So get your watch serviced once a year and stick to the image of being classy and understated.
Fashion faux pas during these ages are quite understandable. Getting older means learning from the mistakes and the best thing is stunning others thereafter, not forgetting to dress for oneself.
