The Six Professionals Behind Every Well-Dressed man

Becoming the well-dressed man takes diligence, practise, and a good bit of research. It takes something else as well, or rather, someone. When you begin your journey toward improving your style and wardrobe, there are a few professionals you'll need to take confidence in. They'll have your back every step of the way and ensure that you are always looking your best.

The Six Professionals you Need to Know

A Trustworthy Clothing Store- Men's suits, tweed jackets, the occasional silk tie. Every bit of your wardrobe is important to your style. You can't just choose any clothing store to provide you with these essentials, however. You need to put your trust in one that is honest, reliable, and sells high quality clothing. Whether you're looking for your next men's tweed jacket or twill dress shirt, knowing that you're purchasing clothing made from the finest materials, at the right price, is critical to your future as a well-dressed man.

When choosing a supplier for your men's clothing, consider the following:

 

  • Availability- Online stores have a leg-up when it comes to availability. They are much more likely to have your size and the colour of your choosing than a brick-and-mortar store that can only stock so much product between four walls.

 

  • Return Policy- If something happens (you choose the wrong item or your new men's suit is damaged upon delivery) make sure there's a safety net on which you can rely. A good return policy will ensure you're not wasting your money.

 

  • Friendly Staff- Even when you're purchasing men's suits or tweed jackets online, it's important that you contact the company and get all of your questions answered. The staff should be helpful, courteous, and able to answer any questions you may have.

 

  • Quality Options- As previously stated, your style doesn't just depend on the clothing you own, but also the quality of that clothing. Make sure the options you're choosing are high-quality for the best look and results.

 

A Friendly Tailor- We may have mentioned once (or a million times) that fit is king when you're updating your style and trying to look like the smart, sophisticated man you are. The only way to get the right fit is with the help of a good tailor. Even the highest-quality clothing you purchase will require the help of this professional, as the suits, shirts, and jackets you buy won't necessarily fit right immediately on your body. You might not have the shoulders to pull it off or a tweed jacket may hang too low on your short torso. When you're looking for a tailor, keep these points in mind:

  • They Should be Capable- This is a given, but you'd be surprised how many men skimp on reliability simply to save a bit of cash. Don't do it. Your clothes will thank you.

 

  • They Should Listen- Remember that you're the customer. A tailor should listen to what you want and comply with it, not pushing their own personal style choices on you.

 

  • They Should Reign you in- That being said, they should also have the ability to stop you when you're making a bad decision. They should, tactfully, be able to tell you when an alteration to your new tweed jacket will end up being a choice you'll regret.

 

A Consistent Stylist- Suits come and go over the years, but there's one thing that stays the same, for the most part: your hair. It's the one thing you wear every single day. Taking care of it is vital to maintaining the right look. Avoid the shops where you meet with a different barber or stylist every single time you visit. Having one barber or stylist that you rely on each time will give you the consistent look you need to impress the board room and the ladies.

Your Physician- Yes, that's right, your doctor. While looking your best on the outside can easily be done with the right tips and clothing choices, it won't mean anything if you don't feel your best. It's true. Have you ever noticed that when you feel like you're coming down with something, people say, “Oh, you don't look well.” That's because being ill can physically affect your appearance, whether you're wearing gorgeous clothing or not.

Visit your doctor regularly and make your health a priority.

 

A Local Cobbler- The profession isn't one that we hear a lot about these days. It's dying out as more and more men are learning (and loving the act of) taking care of their own shoes. While you may be able to polish and shine until they look brand new each time you wear them, when you need serious help, a cobbler is the only one to call. They can perform miracles on your footwear.

A Brilliant Blogger- Taking the first step towards a more stylish life involves more than simply buying the right men's suits. It's also important that you learn how to wear them correctly, as well as any other clothing choices you might make. Chances are, at the beginning, you'll have quite a few questions.

 

How do you add a splash of colour?

Will you still look great if you mix those two patterns?

What exactly is tweed?

How do I get her to notice me?

Should I really wear that to the office?
