Do’s and Don’ts :
- Always layout morning outfit ahead at night. This way, you’ll be able to think more rationally than deciding in a rush during morning chores.
- Iron your apparels for ready to wear every time. Let’s say 5 shirts at a time will do.
- Use Shirt garters to get your shirt tucked in all time. Guys tucking in their shirts in pants all time don’t look cool at all.
- Overly Baggy clothes on guys look kinda awkward as they’re wearing second-hand apparel. Know your body type and choose accurately fitted dresses. If you can’t find one in the market, find the best tailor.
- Don’t aim for one specific style by buying a complete outfit whenever you shop. Invest in different core pieces to match different styles and interchangeable looks.
- Don’t invest in too many clothes, rather a few but best ones as quality here matters than quantity.
- Do a favor yourself and visit a tailor to get your oversized pants hemmed rather than folding them every time you wear them.
- Never wear an undershirt as an actual shirt as it is solely made to absorb sweat and dirt to avoid staining the actual dress.
- If you’re the one with bulky pockets due to a wallet, then fish out old & unwanted receipts because it will make you look like an unorganized guy.
- Don’t mix too many patterns or prints, especially when wearing suits and matching ties with it. Opt for a solid patterned suit if you don’t like plain one.
- Don’t be a walking advertisement by wearing clothes with big brand logos or names on them.
- Sweatpants in Public? Nay, unless you’re going to the gym because these pants indirectly scream laziness.
- Excessive cologne will be your worst mistake in fashion, so spray a little amount depending on its strength on your neck and wrists. Reapply if the smell vanishes after some time in a day.
- Don’t get carried away with colors at all. Instead, only get a maximum of 3-4 same colors apparel to keep a manly and co-ordinated look.
- Shoes also complete your outfit, so don’t forget to keep them clean, polished, and shiny.
