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!
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! 🙂
When you get dressed up and feel great about what you’re wearing it’s hard to not feel on top of the world. I believe when you look good, you feel good and when you feel good you do good. A huge part of landing that dream job, talking to that special someone or even conquering a personal goal is about feeling confident. Confidence can come in an array of ways! But I personally feel that every man can feel confident in a well fitted outfit. If something is ill fitting it can give the impression that you don’t care and even make your body look unflattering. Something as simple as the way our clothes fit and the way we style them can change everything about the way someone is perceived. So, make sure you have some well fitted clothing in your closet. It will help you gain that confidence you need to accomplish those goals you’ve set out for. Remember to “Lava” yourself and keep being awesome 🙂 #StyleHasNoSize
Sometimes you just need to break out the white jeans and pray they don’t get dirty when you’re out. There is nothing more versatile than white jeans! You can dress them to the part of whatever you would like from dressy to casual the outfit combinations are endless. Wearing white jeans also gives the perception that you are very confident as a man because it takes a lot guts to rock white denim especially the correct way. If you want to dress it up simply throw on a blazer and tuck in the shirt. Wear a belt that matches the color of your shoes. Brown shoes equals brown belt. Black shoes equals black belt. Now, this combo can be alternated depending on the shade of brown or black you are sporting at the time. Whatever you decide to do with white denim just make sure YOU feel comfortable with it. That’s what matters the most anyway!! #BeYouBeConfident
