Dressing rules for a timeless style

Don’t Shy Away From Colour

Whether it’s on casualwear or formalwear, indulge in a bit of colour. Most men are unjustly scared of it – they’re intimidated by anything that isn’t navy or grey. But colour can be timeless too. A green suit, for example, can look particularly rakish, while we also recommend pinks, greens, mustard and brighter shades of blue as especially versatile year-round shades that will lift your entire outfit.

Wear In Your Jeans Until They Are Yours

The all-time most useful cut of the world’s most popular garment, is ‘slim-tapered’. It’s wider in the thigh, so it’s comfortable, but narrows, so it works with either smart shoes or sneakers. It’s the best year-round, wear-with-anything, dress up or down style. The wise will wear dark, raw denim too and give the pre-distressed a wide berth. The whole pleasure of denim is that it ages with the way you wear it. Why miss out on that?

Look After Your Appearance

It’s the kind of advice your mother might offer, but if you’ve invested money and thought in your clothing, look after it. Use wooden hangers for shirts and shoe trees for your best shoes; have your suit dry-cleaned and pressed; wash your clothes regularly and, ideally, don’t tumble dry them (it can degrade the fabric); and polish your shoes. Equally, it’s not just the skin of your leather jacket that you need to care for, the same goes for the one you wear every day. Establish a simple, but no less solid, grooming regime, brush your hair and cut your nails. After all, the devil resides in the details.

Dress For The Setting

Style is not merely about self-expression; it’s also about being dressed appropriately for your environment. Think of clothes as being codes: you need the right combination to work with the setting you’re in – and that’s whether it’s a formal dinner or a lazy Sunday in the pub. The worst style is one which is out of place. Is this a kind of conformity? No, as one of Tom Ford’s oft trotted out fashion quotes explains, it’s a mark of respect for others. And about feeling comfortable in yourself. When in doubt, overdress.
