If you’ve been into fashion for a long enough time you probably learned a lot of tips and tricks along the way. We have a few secrets we’re going to share that many gentlemen don’t know or forget. Use these to improve your style today.
Get A Good Tailor
We don’t mean just getting something tailored well but rather developing a relationship with the individual doing it. Getting well acquainted with your tailor means that they will understand your style and needs every time you come in. If they always do a good job that’s up to your standards then you should keep going back to them. When you purchase a suit, take it to a tailor and get it fitted to your body. They will lend you advice while also taking in consideration your needs. You can do the same process with other articles of clothing as well if you need them adjusted.
Treat Your Shoes Well
I commonly see scuffed and dirty dress shoes when observing around. Nothing takes the class out of a good oxford than dirt, scratches, and alike. If you are spending a healthy amount of money on your shoes then you ought to take care of them properly. This starts before you even leave the house. If the weather is damp then spraying them is a necessity for protection against the elements. Past this, don’t be walking in puddles, mud, and other places that will damage shoes. Put them on and take them off carefully as well. If you treat your shoes well, they’ll treat you even better.
Trends Aren’t Everything
Fashion trends aren’t the end-all be-all for style. They are definitely solid guidelines of what is in right now and what works but you need to have your own twist. If you enjoy certain colours or pieces, implement them into your outfit without lowering the integrity of the look. Use trends as inspirations but most importantly be a trend setter yourself. Stick to your own unique style and experiment with different things.
To summarize, firstly you need a good tailor. Develop a relationship with them so they understand your style and needs. Secondly don’t skimp out on treating your shoes or they won’t last. Lastly, don’t follow trends mindlessly but rather include them in ways that align with your style.
