Fashion Essentials
  • Buy clothes that match your skin tone
    • Pale white skin - You need to wear more brown, creams and olive colours.
    • Olive skin - You need to wear more blues, blacks and brown colours.
    • Darker skin - You need to wear more blacks, whites and brighter tones.
    Quick Tip: Wearing a top that matches your eyes, is a great way of colour coordinating which women pay very close attention to. Blue eyes? Wear a blue top, you get the idea.
  • Always opt for slim fitting, not baggy
  • Get contacts and trendy glasses (if you need them)
  • Grab the essential items
    • Slim fitting grey suit - Can be worn to interviews, weddings and the jacket can be worn with jeans for a smart casual look.
    • Skinny black tie - Great with a suit and the smart casual look.
    • Dark brown belt - Goes with trousers, jeans and smart shorts.
    • Dark brown brogues - Perfect for any occasion, from the office to the bar.
    • White trainers - For the casual look.

    • Slim fitting dark blue jeans - For smart casual and casual look.
    • Slim fitting grey, white and black henley - Go with anything, a must for any wardrobe.
    • Classic watch - Silver, with a medium face... perfect for a subtle but dapper appearance.
    • Mac jacket - Formal and casual.
    • Leather jacket - Damn cool, for the casual and smart casual look.
  • Play around with styles and colours
  • Pick and choose which trends to follow. You don't want to be too trendy or else you'll end up looking like a fashion victim, however you should be on top of what's current and new so that you can be selective with incorporating certain trends into your look.
  • A crisp white shirt dress shirt is a must for a wardrobe - let it be a dressy, well fitted shirt, which can be worn with or without a tie.
  • Fill your wardrobe with high quality classics items that won't go out of style. For example, a leather jacket, a navy blazer, and a pair of jeans.
  • Make sure that all your clothes work with each other; try to have a common theme throughout. You don't want to look like an urban cowboy one day and a DJ the next.
  • Go to a tailor today and have him take your correct measurements - put this on the back of a business card, and carry with you everywhere, it will come in handy when buying clothes.
  • Work on building all parts of your wardrobe; make sure that you spend as much effort dressing casually as you do formally.
  • Always make sure your belt and shoes match. If they are both leather, they must match up. Have at least one brown belt and one black. This is one of the indisputable rules in dressing for men.
  • Try layering up your clothing. Take a look at fusion ads, and notice how the models are always wearing two or more layers. The more layers you wear, the more put together you will look.
  • Buy a pair of well made shoes, make sure you don't skimp in this area, they will last you for years. Also keep them well polished at all times.
  • Buy at least one sport coat in a versatile color such as charcoal or navy; better yet get one custom made. There are endless combinations you can do with this item. You can dress it down with a pair of jeans or dress it up with a pair of slacks.
  • Buy at least one suit that you'd never be able to wear to work, something cool and stylish. Maybe it has a colorful pinstripe or is made out of a more casual fabric. You want at least on of these to wear out and at parties. This will really make you stand out as being well dressed.
  • Try dressing down items that are more formal. Pair a luxurious fabric like velvet with well-worn denim. The contrasting pieces will create an intriguing look.
  • The only jewelry a man should have is a nice watch and perhaps a wedding ring when the time is right. We're against the whole earrings on men thing...Also, avoid gold and diamonds or you'll end up looking like a rap star - unless, of course, you ARE a rap star.
  • Avoid wearing black dress shoes. It's not that we have anything against black shoes, it's just that they always look better in a darker brown color; they are more stylish too.
  • If you're a khakis kind of guy, go out and buy some jeans; you need to mix it up and go for something more casual. Likewise, if you're a jeans guy, go out and buy some dressier pants, perhaps a pair of corduroys or chinos.
  • If you wear a sport coat or suit, pay close attention to how long the sleeves are; there should always be a half inch of shirt sticking out from under the cuff. This is a alteration that could make your suit look custom made.
  • Notice how long it take women to get ready, consider how much time they spend on looking good for you. How long do you spend getting ready to go out? 15 min, maybe? Take some extra time and really put some effort into looking good, people will take notice.
  • Last but not least, dont talk about how much effort you put into shopping, grooming, looking good etc. Make it appear as if you do all of this effortlessly, be almost secretive about it. Brush off compliments with... "oh how nice of you to notic..."
