3 Essential Style Tips to Help You Look Your Best

1. Have a go-to tailor.No guy can have off-the-rack clothes fit perfectly. Find a tailor you like—who will listen to your requests—and keep going back to him. He can keep your sizes on hand for quick fixes and even give you impromptu fashion advice.
2. The right tie is essential.The color, fit, and shape should perfectly complement your look. Start with a tie that complements the dominant color of your suit or shirt. Also, the width of the tie should closely match the width of your lapel.
3. Always dress like someone’s watching.Whether you're headed to brunch with the kids or a night on the town, I feel it's always important to look your best. Sometimes it’s as simple as ironing or steaming your clothes. The attention to detail will show, and you'll feel more confident—even if it's just a T-shirt.

It's Autumn and Time to Dress Like a Grownup, Again

A man can get away with more boyish dress in the summer months as the ladies forgive shorts, t-shirts, sandals and such due to the heat. But, we’re post Labor Day now. Not only can you traditionally no longer wear white until Memorial Day, you can’t dress like a grammar school kid or shipwreck survivor anymore.

Autumn and winter offer an opportunity to show off some personal style. The seasons demand you grow your wardrobe up some. As always, the bottom line with men’s fashion — and the women we’re dressing up to attract in the first place — is to show up seeming as though you give a damn what you look like. Consider autumn an opportunity. Rather than weep and moan over the throwback 80s Jams, Crocs and tie dye wife beater you have to pack away burn because the leaves are falling, imagine the looks you can put together from smart to sophisticated to rugged in the Fall.
We’ll go over some autumn fashion tips from head to toe (literally) with ideas on how to evolve your style.

Brands/Designers are Taking their Cues from the Streets

Backpacks. Bomber jackets. Bucket hats.  It's apparent that the Nineties have made a strong comeback -- and with it, a wave of streetwear nostalgia.

Everyone from megabrands such as Nike, Adidas, and Timnberland, to traditional labels such as Brooksbothers and up-and-coming designers like Off-White tapping into its aesthetic.  Its resurgence, both in terms of fashion influence stems from from a variety of factors, including the growing importance of Generation Z consumers; the  boom in activewear as everyday apparel.

So large is the boom, that it is increasingly becoming more and more segmented.  No longer is there one look; instead, streetwear ranges from urban Goths to the skate and surfer market to new-era grunge and lung, and finally, hip-hop.   Because of social media and the Web, all of these underground subcultures are now accessible to the public.

Fashion has always been driven by the streets, but with the web, the impact is seemingly more immediate.  With the web style is "in your face" and the bar to becoming a designer and having access to a large audience is only a few mouse clicks away.
