More General Tips
  • Make sure your shoes are shined everyday
  • Do not wear button down collars with double breasted suits
  • With a traditional or tab collar, always tie a four-in-hand knot. With a spread or button down collar, tie a half Windsor knot
  • A knotted tie should just brush the top of your belt line
  • Bow ties are becoming more popular as part of the business attire
  • Air your clothes, and make all necessary alternations before putting them back in your closet. Never use water to loosen up stains, it sets the stain. If anything use club soda
  • As a rule, the best colors for business shoes are black, burgundy and brown tones (cognac or luggage)
  • Business shoes must always be darker than the suit
  • Before each season, take your shoes to the shoemaker. Have them polished and resoled if necessary
  • Always wear your trousers at the top of the hip bone.
  • When buying a suit, always carry the items you normally keep in your pockets (e.g. wallet, keys, money clip, etc…) for proper alterations/fitting
  • For proper trouser length, wear the correct heel on shoes. Cuffs should be 1 Ό” or 2” in width
  • Suits should be cleaned no more than three times per year. Chemicals used during this process may destroy the dyes and damage fabrications.
  • If one manufacturer’s pieces work for you, stick to the manufacturer. They almost always cut the same sizes and proportions over and over.
  • Spray cologne on your skin not on your clothes
