There is a saying that clothes make the man. You can certainly tell a great deal about a man by the clothes he owns and wears for business, casual or formal occasions. Men’s fashion and a man’s wardrobe are often more important than most will realise and need just as much attention and care as any woman’s wardrobe. In many cases more!
These days there seems to be a much wider variety of menswear available for you to buy, or even hire. Depending on the kind of jobs that men have, and what they do in their spare time plays a significant role in deciding the type of menswear they will have in their individual wardrobes. Basically the better wardrobes will have a mix of clothes in them. There will be everyday shirts, coats, and jeans, then there may be smarter clothes for wearing to work, and the smartest clothes for job interviews and special occasions. It is worth reviewing the contents of your wardrobe at least once a year to decide the clothes you still need and the ones that no longer serve a purpose for you. If you do not want to own the smartest formal wear this can be hired for graduations, proms, and weddings etc.
A high quality formal mens shirt can say a great deal about what is, or is not in a man’s wardrobe. Shirts that are well-made and look that way will get someone noticed as a man that knows how to dress most aptly, and has a bit of class. For black tie events and important business meetings a hand made or tailor made shirt can go a long way in impressing people. Excellent first impressions can more than justify the extra cost of a higher quality shirt, for those of us with limited clothes buying budgets. Such shirts demonstrate which men pay attention to the finer details in life and who are prepared to put in the extra effort to make progress in their lives.
Men’s Everyday Clothing
Sometimes just as important for advancing in careers and social standing as formal wear are informal mens shirts. These shirts can be ideal for when there is an occasion where the dress code is smart casual but you do not want to look too casual. Make an effort to look right without making it appear as though you have made too much of an effort. When picking informal shirts consider choosing designer brands, and if you have been to these type of events before consider what other people wore to gauge what might be the most appropriate choice.
Men’s Formal Wear
It isn’t just men’s shirts that can be formal wear. This category of men’s clothing includes suits, ties, and waist coats. Formal dress is best suited to business meetings, job interviews, as well as club or society meetings. Major social events like weddings or engagement parties are other occasions when it is best to wear formal wear unless told that smart casual will be the order of the day.
Tailor made formal dress could be a valuable addition to the wardrobe of any man that is ambitious. Otherwise a well-made suit with reasonable quality shirts would normally be fine for men that attend job interviews and social gatherings alike sparingly. To make the men’s formal wear look complete some men will wear cuff links, tie pins, and silk ties. If a man is going to be in formal dress then he should do it properly and not overlook the smaller details.
Men’s Summer Style
These days it is easier to buy men’s shorts that appear on the smarter side of smart casual instead of on the scruffy side of scruffy. Year in year out, most retailers seem to have a competition between each other to bring out the brightest shorts possible. If you are only planning to wear shorts on your family holiday then it does not really matter how bright they are. On the other hand your choice may have to be toned down for important social gatherings.
In terms of tops, men need in their summer wardrobe t-shirts, vests, and casual short sleeved shirts. T-shirts and vests should go best with the more casual shorts. If wearing a short sleeved shirt consider matching it with the smarter looking shorts. For family gatherings you may be able to wear the more daring combinations of summer clothes.
