Tip: Hate to agree, but she's right. That light citrusy scent that you've been sporting during the warm summer months won't cut it in winter. Ditch the delicate aroma and find something woodsy and heavier to go with all of the wool you'll be pulling out of the closet soon.
Tip: Truly, your shave routine needs to include more than a can of foam and a single blade. Start by stocking up on the right products: 1. Pre-shave exfoliant scrub 2. Shave oil 3. Cream/Foam 4. Multi-blade razor. You will need to prep your skin by exfoliating first with warm water, then soften hairs with a shave oil second, and apply your cream/foam third. A multi-blade razor will get you the closest shave, but remember to cut hair at an angle to help prevent ingrown hairs. Finish the job with a splash of cold water to close your pores and apply a simple daily moisturizer. Your skin will thank you and you'll reap the benefits with nick-free, soft skin.
Tip: Brown can do a lot for you; mix things up. With shades galore in wing tips, loafers and lace-ups, nothing commands a second look more than a great brown shoe with any suit, slacks or even jeans.
Tip: I think a visit to your local costume rental shop is in order for sure; however, here are some starters. Throughout the 18th centery, mens apparel was quite elaborate and made of fine fabrics like silks and velvets. Common pieces consisted of waistcoats, breeches, wigs, wide-brimmed hats, ruffled shirts, cravats, stockings and buckled shoes. Channel your inner Benjamin Franklin and you'll look great!
Tip: Though the wedding party will be dressed to the nines, you may be able to get around the rules. This will be a formal affair, but you can still dress to impress if you don't want to rent a tux. Make your statement in a tailored black suit, crisp white shirt and a black-tie. Finish with black wing tip shoes and cuff links and you'll be perfectly suited.
Tip: Cargo pants, flip-flops and washed-out tees - yes, too casual. Many workplaces today have a business-casual atmosphere, but many are confused about what is actually acceptable. Depending on your workplace, age and position, we suggest blending the classic with the contemporary. Keep it clean with cotton by pairing a straight-fit khaki with a fashion-forward polo and loafers. Try layering things with a woven shirt and a V-neck sweater for a change in style. Definitely find a fine tweed sport coat to class up your Friday jeans for any occasion that might come your way.
Tip: 1. A great-fitting, 5-pocket jean in a dark wash. 2. A blazer for layering things with. 3. A classic scarf & overcoat. 4. A stylish suede shoe or boot. 5. The perfect pair of corduroys.
Tip: Accessorize! Try pairing a standard white, blue or even pink dress shirt with a statement tie. Try a bold collegiate-stripe style for a fresh Southern-gentlemanly look or go uptown with a bold plum pattern. If you're not so daring, bring a punch of personality to a monochromatic suit with just your socks. A pinch of color is the perfect little surprise when you take a seat.
