“Dressing well is a form of good manners”

Once one knows the “hard rules” of dressing as a gentleman, it is time to learn to break those rules; or at least bend on the occasions.

Here’s the truth. Dressing well is a skill. And like any other skill, you can learn it and improve. Realize that dressing well is a skill that can be developed through practice.

Fit is the most important thing when it comes to great style. It’s so important, in fact, that I tell every one of my clients “wearing clothes that fit properly will solve 90% of your style problems.”

When clothes don’t fit properly, they throw off your body proportions. Because of the excess fabric, clothes that are too big make you not only look sloppy, but fatter and shorter than you are.

Men have the tendency to wear clothes that are too big for them because it either “feels more comfortable”, or they just don’t know how clothes are supposed to fit in the first place.

One of my favorite quotes of all time is “You are the average of 5 people around you.”

When it comes to your style, that’s exactly what you need if you want to improve. You need to surround yourself with people with the same goals as you.

The simplest change you can make is to start following stylish people on places like Instagram. It’ll give you a double whammy: It’ll expose you to great style and give you some inspiration, but it’ll also create an environment where dressing well is “normal”.

At the end of the day, it is who you are that matters, not what you wear. Be your best self and show the world that you are a gentleman in though and deed. Respect others, respect yourself.
