Since his last feature – Dressing Your Body Type, Tips for Short(er) Guys – Adam has begun a new career as a clothier at Michael Andrews Bespoke in Noho NYC.
The best part about working at a bespoke men’s shop – other than starting at noon, watching the game and sharing drinks with clients at the bar all day - is the in-house discount, of course.
Check out Adam’s Fall/Winter lineup of badass, one-of-a-kind, swagger-induced suits.
1. What Brown Can Do For You
“Every guy should be experimenting with brown. If you’re concerned with trying out a new suit color, look for one that has a subtle hue that can pass as almost grey.
I needed a couple of suits that were warm enough for the harsh NYC winter, but I didn’t want bulky fabrics. If I worked outside all day, a 16oz fabric is something that I might be interested in. But I don’t, so I like flannels around 9oz.”
Bonus Tip: A light blue shirt pulls out the stripe in the glenplaid.
Bonus Tip II: There are ties for all seasons, like this flannel chalkstripe (cut from suiting cloth) for Fall/Winter.
Bonus Tip III: For smaller guys, sleeve length and trouser length are very important. Keeping them on the shorter side will help elongate the physique.
