Properly Fitted Clothing Helps a Man Stand Out

Q: What are the biggest style mistakes men make?
A: Fit, fit, fit.

Men don’t know how to wear clothes that fit them properly.

Q: How can they do better?
A: They can start by going to a place that has experts who know how to properly fit a suit, a pair of pants, a shirt.

Whether you’re a bigger guy or a slighter guy — wear things that fit correctly, and it’s always going to be flattering. Your money is better spent on getting clothes that are tailored to your body than going out and buying a whole new wardrobe.

Q: Are there any specific sins that you see?
A: I see men wearing pants that are way too long. Right now, the style is for no break or a very slight break on your trouser.

And then the big baggy dress shirt — I see men wearing it all the time. Make sure it’s not super loose and blousy on your torso.

Q: What’s your recommendation for a business power look — something strong but stylish?
A: You cannot go wrong with a charcoal-gray suit. And if you really want to show that you’ve got power, wear season-appropriate fabrics.

Q: What are your do’s and don’ts for business casual?
A: If you want to stand out, make sure you always have on a sport coat. You can wear it with jeans. But it’s the sport coat that’s going to make you always look professional.

Q: How can men be stylish on weekends?
A: I would say the same thing — with the sport coat. There are so many versions of the soft sport coat. You can wear it as outerwear. You can wear it over a sweater.

Q: All guys wear jeans. How should they be wearing them right now?
A: Move toward a dark, clean, straight denim.

Q: What shoes should men be wearing?
A: Not too pointy and not too square, first of all. The toe of the shoe — keep it nice and rounded.

What I love right now are these great hybrids, so they look dressy from the top but they’ve got a lug sole. That’s what men should be wearing.
