Tips On How To Dress Elegantly For Men
Feel overwhelmed with the sea of options to choose from with clothes for men? No matter how much the fashion industry tries to convince the public with their new apparel in the market, most men are just happy with the casual clothes that they wear. It doesn’t mean that they don’t wear properly from time to time, but they only do so when there is an occasion. And usually when men are invited to attend a party, such as a formal one, the time demands them to become ‘manly’.
The way to dress properly, even for men, is really simple. They don’t need to look at fashion models to get some ideas. Here are some tips that will help them get to the right kind of clothes that will fit them.
Forcing yourself to purchase clothes that fit you
And this is not about just what you think ‘suits’ you. Many men try to conclude their fashion sense as something that they feel is already suited to them. And when they find a suit that is a perfect fit for them, they usually reject it and say that they are not confident. At this point, it is best that you force yourself in buying clothes that fit you.
It might be something new as this is not an advise that tells you that you should buy clothes that you are used to. You may feel comfortable with the clothes or suits that fit you perfectly, but because you aren’t used to it, you automatically dismissed it and go for something more loose.
The habit of buying clothes that fit precisely to the proportions of the body started out back in the 1980s. It was that time when the belief that loose-fitting clothes are more comfortable than wearing clothes that fit properly to the body’s proportion. That was also the time when street wear and extra large clothes were considered normal.
Every men that have already tried to wear clothes that truly fit the proportion of their body agree that there is more freedom of movement, incredible comfort and even visual impact to it. It is extremely important that that you buy your first jacket or suit in the size that properly suits you.
If it is difficult for you to buy made-to-measure clothes, here are a couple of things to keep in mind:
Your shoulder line should feel and look natural. The jacket shoulder must sit comfortably on the external half of your deltoid muscle.
The button that you use to close the jacket, which is the active button, must slightly tug on the fabric.
After the jacket is closed, make sure that there is no gape on the lapel, which is the unsightly area between the torso and the lapel. There should be no collar gape as well, which is the gape between the collar of the jacket and the collar of the shirt.
Once you have everything above checked, make sure that you stand upright. It will complete the form in looking like men in elegance.
