The Gentlemen's Club
There was a time when dressing like a man meant looking like a lumberjack. Today, it simply means dressing like a gentleman. The good news: Women love it. Better news: Upgrade that wardrobe is a snap.
Whether you move big bucks around in the banking industry, or work your magic in the creative world, looking dapper is simple: A good shirt, a well-fitted suit, a great tie, and a handsome pair of brogues make for a fail-safe uniform.
The right fit makes a world of difference. Never shy away from a streamlined fit when it comes to choosing the right shirt or suit - extra bunching around your waist only serves to add extra bulk to your frame. Honesty is also the best policy when it comes to suiting up. If you are stumpy, go for a short-length suit instead of insisting you're a regular fit.
Once you're done suiting up, spruce up your ensemble with accessories in contrasting colours or patterns, employing the use of bow ties, ties or pocket squares to add an edge to your look. Follow that with a dashing pair of oxfords or brogues and you're all sorted. If you're tempted to swap them with sneakers, remember: That's exactly what Ellen would do, too.
Man up, guys, and say hello to your big-boy clothes.
