seasonal ties (summer)

dressing seasonally is advanced.  if you don't want to make the leap, try starting with neck-wear.  cotton or linen ties is a great way to move in the direction of dressing appropriately for the weather.

spring = bright pants

the opportunity to wear bright dress pants is half of the reason to own a great navy blazer; it's the perfect balance

colored laces

contrasting colored laces is the most overlooked way to add individual style to an outfit, or bring versatility to dress shoes.

shoes matter

yes, it's the shoes.  lebron shows us the easiest way to ruin an outfit.  the first picture is infinitely better than the second, as at least we can assume or imagine that he is wearing dress shoes.  sneakers/gym shoes/hightops with suits are simply juvenile.  light brown dress shoes are top choice for navy suits.

perfect button position

when your collar is undone, make it a point to have the appropriate spacing between the collar button and second button.   the second button literally makes or breaks the shirt.  if it's too high, it’s in no-man's-land and you’ll look like you live with your mom.  george is kind enough to show us what not to do

buy a bamboo blazer, now, it will instantly become your favorite blazer.  you’ve probably heard of bamboo with regard to coasters and floors and such, it’s a very hard substance.  however, i’m referring to the extremely soft fiber that comes from inside the bamboo plant.  they call it “summer cashmere” because it’s soft and luxurious like cashmere is, except it’s super lightweight, cool, and refreshing.   do it half-lined or unlined for maximum comfort.

a sportcoat is the ideal garment that can transform even the most lackluster ensemble into something fashionable.  don a blazer with jeans and a t-shirt to add a little juice for a date, or throw one on with slim fit slacks for a cool casual look for work.  wear it with a shirt, tie, and dress pants for an upscale weekend look.  sportcoats/blazers are the most versatile piece in a discerning man’s wardrobe.  my favorite option is with a dress shirt, no tie, and a killer pocket square.
