Even the worst compilation of baggy trousers, mustard stained shirts, mismatched dress socks, and Granddad’s hand-me-down neckties cannot conceal a man’s inner desire to dress fashionably. Lurking deep within every man is this yearning to look in the mirror with satisfaction. Many sit in denial of their own dismal apparel, while they let the Ryan Goslings and Channing Tatums have all the fun. They are the guys who demand a presence as they walk in the room. They are the guys to leave an impression good enough for a first date. Only the billionaire entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs have permission to wear off white New Balance sneakers. Until we make it to his status, let’s at least try our best to look decent :).
My sense of style was first perked while living in England a few years ago. The British really do know how to dress proper. We’re talking slim fit suits, fitted shirts, wide spread collars, pointed shoes, pocket squares, sophisticated mustaches, colored dress socks, and neckties at the skinnier width God intended them to be. I’m telling you, I noticed a difference in England. And actually, since returning, I’ve noticed that some of this fashion has started to gain popularity in our own great country.
Here are a few of the recent trends: (1) slimmer fitting – especially trousers, (2) button up shirts - maybe even buttoning that top button, (3) wide brim hats – fedoras, (4) colored socks – the louder the better, and (5) tweed sports coats – preferably with elbow pads. Additionally, as a neckwear connoisseur myself, I would highly recommend accenting your outfits with some highly stylish neckwear, preferably floral.
Ralph Lauren said, “Personal style is about having a sense of yourself and what you believe in every day.” Whether you’re a student, businessman, teacher or journalist, if you are truly believe you can be successful, then start looking the part. I’ve found that dressing smartly results in smart reactions. I believe that people will begin to take you more seriously when you put in the effort. Be confident and comfortable with whom you are every day you walk out the door.
I remember once showing up to an important interview in what I thought was appropriate dress. I looked decent and wore a button up shirt and necktie, but the two gentlemen interviewing me were wearing sports coats. To be honest, I was a bit embarrassed. Never show up underdressed! Luckily, the interview ended up going well and I ended up getting the position, however, I learned a valuable lesson about setting the best possible first impression!
