Suspenders, wearing them with a suit is cool but down with jeans is even cooler!
Tip #19 Exposed:
Suspenders, yes, suspenders with jeans or khakis can work great. They are out there, I myself have a pair of Varvatos (John) khakis with some kick ass suspenders. Of course, I take my own tip in to account and wear them down with a tee, polo or even a casual shirt. Remember, if you do have some killer suspenders you plan to wear with a pair of jeans you do need suspender buttons. I mainly use pairs that are meant for suspenders, but you can have the buttons sowed on to any pair your heart desires. Plug the suspenders in, let em hang down, and rock it!
We all love our inbox shopping, but keep in mind it is not always the cheapest.
Tip #12 Exposed:
A great trick to getting good deals on clothing is inbox shopping (sites such as the above, that send sales to your email). Keep in mind though, that when you find something you like on one of these sites you should always google the item to see if you can find it cheaper elsewhere. There is a reason these sites are selling items at such a low price, obviously a retailer is trying to get rid of inventory they could not sell. Maybe you can find it for cheaper from that retailer or from another discount site. Happy shopping!
As I did, many believe that keeping your suits in cleaner bags protects them. This is in fact not the case! Your suits need to air out, and definitely after you have worn them. Keeping them in the cleaner bags will many times cause the static issue as well, that we all hate. Although, remember if you do have the static issue and your pants are sticking to your legs, there are many sprays out there that will alleviate the issue. If you are worried about your suits getting wrinkled just make sure they are hung right and there is enough space in your closet to leave a bit of room between them.
If you don’t know about leather cream you need to! Leather cream such as the one in the photo both protect your leather and clean it. They protect it by coating it to keep water, scuffs, and stains from absorbing into the leather. This will keep your shoes, bags, belts and whatever other leather you wear looking fresh. Keep in mind this is not a one time thing, although doing it periodically will clean the leather as well. Apply the cream, wait for it to dry, and then buff to get the natural shine of your leather. This is the single best tip I can give for leather, period.
Stars and Stripes are fine on the American Flag not your clothing, they don’t match!
Tip #6 Exposed:
When trying to match clothing stay away from checkered and stripes, they clash! When wearing a checkered shirt your safest bet is to wear a solid jacket. Same with a striped shirt and vise versa a striped or checkered jacket will be best with a solid shirt. So try and own both solid shirts and solid jackets. Same applies to pants and socks, pants and shirt etc….. Playing it safe is always a good idea. People will notice a clash before they notice a match!
