2. Wearing a Suit Just Because You Want to Wear a Suit
I hear it from guys all the time: “I want to wear suits and tailored pieces more often, but I never have occasions to wear them.”
Here’s an easy solution: you don’t need an “occasion”, just wear your suit.
It’s a fact, men look good in suits. Girls like it. Your parents like it. And most importantly, YOU like it.
The best part is, it’s easy. The jacket matches the pants…75% of your outfit is already put together.
There are plenty of “laidback” suits on the market now – from Uniqlo to Michael Bastian. Soft shoulders, partial lining, textured fabric, slim leg, etc. These are the easiest to wear casually – with sneakers, for example.
However, that doesn’t mean you can’t dress-down a sharp suit. This charcoal grey peak lapel number sometimes serves as my “semi formal” suit (as featured HERE).
As always, fit is critical.
THE POWER OF SHOES…
Loafers (and glasses) can make the look a little more mature and serious.
I love these glasses with the removable shaded lenses – saves you from having to carry two pairs…and gaining you some definite style points.
