MASTERING BASICS: MEN'S FASHION ADVICE

MASTERING BASICS: MEN'S FASHION ADVICEWe all know that a gentleman’s sense of style is paramount to the way he presents himself as a man. The old adage that your sense of style is your first introduction is truer now more than ever. To help you put your front foot forward in the fashion world, let’s take a top-down look at the fashion basics.

MASTERING BASICS: MEN'S FASHION ADVICE

Headwear
Wearing hats can be tricky to pull off properly. Many a man has mistakenly worn some sort of celeb-inspired monstrosity. Wearing a hat can become a signature of a gentleman’s attire; ensure you sign your style with something that works and reflects who you are. 
The first rule to remember, hats have to have a purpose. Whether that purpose is ‘it’s ruddy cold today’ or ‘this outfits needs something extra’, just make sure it suits you as well. 
If it is the functionality of fighting the cold you seek, donning a thick knit fisherman’s beanie will do the trick; but if you are looking for something more Fendi than function, look no further than the fedora, not only does it exude class but it has been tried and tested for decades. Quick tip: make sure the size of the rim is not too big for your face.

Coats
The coat is the chief concern for a complete winter garb; it will protect you from both the wind and rain, but more importantly it adds a dashing weathered elegance not found in summer attire. When picking an overcoat ensure that it covers your sleeves and is big enough to wear a jumper or suit underneath.  The length of the coat should be kept between the bottoms your jacket and your knees, any lower and it look misshapen and untidy.
Something important to note about choosing an overcoat is that it will take the most wear and tear out of all items except your shoes. If you are going to get an overcoat, invest in quality, it will last you much longer, fit better and keep you warmer and drier. A wool-cashmere blended pea coat is a fantastic investment in the future.

The Suit
So much can be said on this topic, so I will just give you the headline. The fit is crucial. A well-fitted, moderately priced suit is orders of the magnitude better than a poorly fitting expensive suit. If you can’t afford to have one made, get a reasonably priced version and have it tailored. It will cost you a lot less and will look fantastic.

Jeans& Trousers
In the last few decades, denim has not only become the key component of a man’s wardrobe, but it has become the only bottoms option men seem to own. This is unacceptable. To stand apart from the herds of unfashionable men strolling down the road, opt for the fitted chino. The smart-casual pant plays with the line between chilled and semi-formal; ensuring that they fit properly allows you to take it from the former to the latter with the addition of a nice shirt and blazer.

Shoes
Footwear warrants similar rules to headwear; the purpose for this item is pivotal. Wearing trainers to a restaurant, not okay! Wearing trainers to the gym? Perfectly reasonable. If in doubt, ask yourself this question, do the shoes fit the tone of either the outfit or the event. If not, they’re not the right shoes. Final tip: your shoes should match your belt i.e. brown leather shoes, brown leather belt.
