Haven’t posted a formal look in a while, and indeed my day-to-day dress has evolved this past year to consist of increasingly casual pairings. But let’s talk formal wear. Basic tips for young men uncomfortable with or questioning busting out a suit or blazer w/ slacks:
1. Iron and press that shit. Having a rumpled jacket/slacks/collared button up completely undermines the sharpness of formal-wear. People notice. You dug it out of the bottom drawer.
2. Sleeve length. Make sure your fit FITS. Sleeves of a shirt should naturally end just past your wrist bone, and your jacket should be just slightly shorter, so about a quarter inch of shirt sleeve is exposed.
3. Complementary colors and smart contrasts. Don’t wear a shirt the same color as your jacket. All the lines of your lapels and collar will be lost. Accessorize with complementary colors. Here I’m wearing like four different shades of grey that work well together, but are not the same.
4. Lapels, whether notched or peaked, the notch should lay on your chest/shoulders in-line with the lowest points of your collar.
Stay formal and stay fitted friends! A suit is like armor. It literally makes you more powerful. #mnswr#menswear#mensstyle#mensfashion#fashion#style#fashionista#stylist#styletips#styleinspo#fashionblogger#fashionpost#tailoring#fit#ootd#lotd#formalwear#classicstyle#elegance#gentleman#artofstyle

“ COURAGE is a mean with regard to fear and confidence.” A courageous man fears, but he still feels confident in a rational way. He does not fear the most fearful things, like death, for a worthy and noble cause. This shows loyalty and value.
These days, the word ‘courage’ is misinterpreted and used when someone is fighting for himself, or if it’s not even that courageous.
Courage is measured by the level of death risk involved. More danger, more courage. Courage is not:
Boldness (or over confidence). Facing danger because someone broke the law.
Being calm in the face of danger.
Being passionate about doing dangerous things.
In simple words, a man fears and takes dangerous risks, but still rationally feels confident for a worthy result.
