Today I want to speak to you about how clothes especially suits should fit. We have all seen those men in ill fitting “court date” suits, to me they scream I don’t know how this whole dress up thing works. So, let me just run to Stein Mart and get something real quick. Although places like Stein Mart have awesome clothing for men. Most men forget the one key to looking great. That one key is fitting. Look, we all have various body types and should embrace them. It’s what makes us unique and special, so you must dress for your body type. Just because you’re a larger guy doesn’t mean your suit has to be oversized! You can get a suit to fit you the way most suits are supposed to….well. If you don’t do custom suiting and you buy off the rack, I suggest finding a blazer that fits in the shoulders and chest. The sleeves and mid section can be altered to you specific taste. For me it’s important to have things fit my body right, it gives off the impression that I care because I do. When it comes to buying suit pants or any pants at that, make sure they fit in the waist and thigh. You can get a taper done if you like the legs skinnier for a more modern fit (like I have pictured in the post). Listen, don’t let your size or society get in the way of looking your very best at all times. You can look great in anything as long as the fit is right, not color, not pattern but the FIT! #StyleHasNoSize

Remember fellas they say a well tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men……let that sink in for minute!

Polo | Red Xtreme

Polo Red Xtreme -14

They say dressing well is a form of good manners. I believe strongly in that saying, when someone is dressed well they are speaking without using their words. It says I’m here to be serious and get the job done. Dressing well is one of the many things you need to feel good about yourself. Smelling well and having good hygiene is another. If you put a man in a well-tailored suit with a clean body and some cologne to match the occasion, his possibilities are endless. That’s how I feel about this Polo Red Xtreme fragrance, the possibilities are endless when wearing this. It has a dark oak smell that enriches your confidence, making you feel as if you can conquer the world. I’m a fan of everyone feeling confident and taking charge of their life. This fragrance embodies that, the same way a well-tailored suit embodies good manners. Be you and be confident! #Strong #Ad #PoloRedXtreme

GreenBlazer -1

When I think of Italy I think of high fashion, well tailored suits, great food, art and well made shoes. The kind of shoes that make a statement when you wear them. They say something about who you are and how you got where you are in life. They tell a story the same way a recipe or painting does, it is significant to ones life. These Donald J. Pliner Crocco Lux loafers are just that for me. I’ve been blogging and influencing for about four years now and it’s like a mile marker for me. I have always wanted to own some crocodile loafers and shoes made in Italy. Now that I have both in one shoe, it helps me know that my hard work is starting to pay off. I want to inspire men everywhere to feel better about themselves and know that you can wear whatever you want whenever you want to wear it, just feel confident in it. All men should have a good pair of loafers in their life and if you’re in the market for a pair, trust me these Crocco Lux loafers are the way to go……I know style! (lol)

Are you feeling the suspenders with this look?! Let me know in the comments! 🙂

Happy happy Friday, Strong!

Turtle Neck Strong

iw-harper-5

I haven’t rocked a turtle neck since grade school! It’s so nostalgic to wear one and feel so comfortable…..next is overalls. I remember as a kid my sister and I had matching red Tommy Hilfiger turtle necks with black denim overalls. That looked so fly to me……a part of me wishes some of the styles from the 90’s would makes a strong comeback. Fashion is forever evolving and eventually overalls will be one the hottest things around again and no will be able to deny such an amazing throwback item. Be sure to shop some of my favorite turtle necks below!! Hope your 2017 is going well so far! 🙂 #TurtleNeck2017
