Outlining the importance of using collar stays and inexpensive options for replacing them.
Trouser selections for the big and tall guy.
Now that the weather in the South has finally turned towards Fall, it’s time to gear up for the best season(s) for guys to dress: Fall & Winter. The key, as mentioned before, is layering. Now that we don’t have to worry about pit sweat (yum) when we put on something more substantial than a…Read the Rest
The previous parts of this series tackled a casual night out, followed by a slightly dressier occasion. Today will be selecting an outfit for a trendy club/lounge or a nice restaurant. Here is your chance to show a little bit of your style. Previously, it’s been a bit more subtle, yet the outfits maintained a…Read the Rest
*Note: I’m not sure if this got published, because of the aforementioned deleting of the posts (dumb). If so, sorry for the reposting. Last time I chose an outfit for a casual bar/lounge, where the motivation was to look effortlessly cool. Now we’ll ratchet up the trendiness factor just a tad. The outfit below was…Read the Rest
If you couldn’t tell I love ties; there’s just something about them. Whether paired with jeans or a suit, I love the contrast that that little bit of color affords. It’s arguably the most masculine article of clothing you can wear regularly (spurs don’t count). And as a man’s style should be generally subtle, the…Read the Rest
Just say no to overly elaborate jean pockets for men.
Opt for a quality salon haircut as opposed to a Quickie Haircutter.
Fit rules for purchasing a suit are covered, such as: shoulder width, proper buttoning procedure, sleeve length, and torso shape. Tips for particular body types are also highlighted.
Yes, gentleman, you need to be concerned with what you wear swimming. I know, it’s a tough world. But, here at PG, we believe that a modern man (that is what you’re becoming, isn’t it?) should leave no stylistic stone unturned. Every aspect of what you put on your body should be scrutinized to ensure…Read the Rest
A little secret guys: your undershirt is important. This ranks as one of the most common complaints by women about a guy’s attire. I know you may be saying: “Pffft. Chicks are crazy. It’s just an undershirt. Why are they complaining?” And the simple answer is: because you can see it. Your undershirt should only…Read the Rest
I wanted this post to be a tantrum against Ed Hardy clothing, but I realized that’s like beating a dead, cliche, and ugly horse. So, instead I decided to target the fundamental aspect of what makes Ed Hardy-like clothes so unattractive – inauthenticity (unless, you’re a huge meathead with spiky bleached hair, cause I really…Read the Rest
I omitted shorts from my fit guide on pants, but that isn’t because they are unimportant, or that guys wear them correctly, it’s because they belong in a class all to themselves. Just like shoes, guys typically don’t put that much thought into a pair of shorts. They check to make sure they fit in…Read the Rest
Shoes are very important. Let’s be honest: walking around with the wrong pair of shoes and the right outfit makes you look like an idiot. It can completely kill an outfit. Here’s a mental image: you see a guy suited-up in the perfect suit, shirt and tie combo. Pants with the perfect break and width.…Read the Rest
I’m consistently amazed as to how often guys neglect to wear pants that fit them properly. Ill-fitting pants may even beat out ugly shoes as the most common mistake made by guys. I’m curious as to if this is because most guys don’t own a full-length mirror and rely upon their bathroom mirror that only…Read the Rest
For Lesson 1 I’m going to borrow an image from the most recent Johnston & Murphy catalog to help punctuate my point about how a shirt should fit (for now, ignore the ugliness of the shirt). Now, this isn’t me bashing J&M. I actually think some of their shoes are fantastic. But, their clothing line…Read the Rest
The way that your clothes fit on your body is probably the single most important, yet easiest aspect of your wardrobe to change. You can have the most expensive clothing in the world, and still look like a scrub if the clothes don’t fit your body properly. Most guys wear clothing that are too big,…Read the Rest
