Or so says the September edition of Men’s Health…They go on to say that “Prosperous men don’t wear wrinkled clothes…Until you make it, fake it.”
I agree with the wrinkled part. Even an inexpensive shirt can look like a million bucks if it fits well and is clean and pressed. Many people would be hard pressed to know the difference between a $50 shirt and a $350 shirt if those pieces are in place. The picture above is from the Men’s page on Nordstrom.com – They are absolutely right! Once you find the right size, you must find the right FIT.
When you have on a wrinkled shirt it speaks FOR you and it rarely has anything good to say…
It might say:
- I don’t pay attention to details.
- I am not trustworthy.
- I don’t respect the person I’m meeting.
- I am unaware of the need to dress well when I’m meeting someone new.
- I don’t care what you think about me.
My tip for you would be to try on a slim, modern or narrow fitting shirt – EVEN IF YOU DON’T THINK YOU CAN. Most men wear shirts that are billowy and are poorly fitted. The shirt should fit up against your body but still give you enough room to breathe. For those men who have problems finding the right shirt, let me help you! If your dimensions make it hard to find a shirt ‘off the rack,” that is ok – I work with the most incredible tailor and together we can make you a shirt that says success.
Great Tip: Don’t lace your wingtips like a sneaker!
I’m going to borrow another tip from Men’s Health since it’s one I’ve always agreed with! They say that the crisscross lacing style you learned as a kid is ok for your tennis shoes, not for a good pair of leather brogues. (The ones in the picture are from Johnston & Murphy; Tyndall Wingtip).
Fashion is in the little details. A good fit, laces done right, groomed properly and so on…You don’t have to break the bank to look like you own the bank.
It is the perfect time to book a consultation. Fall lends itself to investing in the basics that are seasonless as well as a few warmer pieces to get you through the wintery months.
