When it comes to formals, every men wants to look their best. And it’s probably the only time they think about investing time, efforts and money when it comes to clothes. So what makes it so special? Well, formals like tuxedo, business suits, or just even nicely ironed pants and shirts could bring a whole of difference in your attitude as well as those of people perceiving you, and in addition it makes almost every men delectable. But, of course, you want to do it the right way because if suits have powers-not fictional but something around having a command types of power to have a certain kind of influence on others then suits also have the powers to make any man look drab, if not worn rightly.

A lot of things have changed since the past few decades so have the fashion of formals under men category. Times are gone where they used to wear their suits bigger their sizes, where a funky tie could make someone laugh. Now is so not the case, precise size of the men are taken into consideration before tailoring the suits and only the pristine clothes are taken for sewing. That is the reason why customisation of suits have come into so much demand lately. There’s only one way of doing it right, and if you are not doing that, then you are definitely doing is wrong or close to wrong.

And if you are the one one who’s been doing it wrong then now is the time to rectify it. Let’s look at some general and basic mistakes that men tend to make. Wearing a suit is an absolute minefield. Men often overcomplicate things. Don’t combine too many patterns. Limit yourself with few or even one nice and strong thing instead of trying cover everything in one attire. Men often pair patterned suits with bold accessories like mindlessly heavy watches or cufflinks. And that in a way is way too empowering, not good empowering. If you’ve a fun tie or a fun pocket square, team it with solid shirt and a solid suit. It’s good to have a style that’s understated and makes you come across as more confident than cartoonish.

Other mistake that men make is lots of guys simply don’t spend enough money on themselves. Investing in self-presentation – outside of health and education – is critical for  your career, for social circumstances. My advice is maximising whatever budget you have to invest in a good suit that will last. You should rather have one nice suit than four suits that will fall apart. You can make that suit go long way – if it’s the right style.

Men should begin with building their sartorial wardrobe around a navy suit because of its sheer versatility. A blue suit is something you can wear for everything from the office to a cocktail party. When you wear it as a blazer with a pair of of jeans or chinos it will look less like you’re wearing a suit jacket. And it’s still going to stand out a little bit more. And it can easily go the other way round, you can wear that same suit jacket with matching pants and a fitted white shirt and look stunning for a formal occasion. Also add a bow or tie to it and you are ready for the special occasions like weddings or formal events. So if you can, maximise your budget and invest in a beautiful blue suit. And don’t go and ruin it with crazy accessories.

Down here I’m pinning some of the great styles of suit you could adapt in future and make ladies go jelly in their knees.

With every suit you buy make it a point for using it for multipurpose. And that will be beginning of your collection.Screen Shot 2018-08-11 at 9.16.51 AM.pngScreen Shot 2018-08-11 at 9.16.24 AM.png

Bonus tip: adding a nice sweater underneath you suit jacket would get you brownie points. If possible it makes men look even sincere and hot. Screen Shot 2018-08-11 at 9.16.45 AM.png
