Buying men’s clothing can be a bit troublesome, no matter whether you’re buying for yourself or for someone as a gift. It’s important to invest in a few quality staple pieces that you can easily mix and match to get the best value and long term wear. There are a few things you should make sure to really invest in, such as a good pair of leather shoes. We’ll cover the key pieces of information below. These tips will be relevant no matter the brand of clothing you buy, whether you dress in House of Bruar or something else, you’ll want to ensure you use these tips to save you money, ensure your wardrobe has some fine pieces and that you can handle any social situation.
1) Invest in Good Shoes
If you can get the tailored, all the better, but a good pair of leather shoes is essential. You’re going to want to spend a decent amount of money on these. Buying cheaper shoes tend to look cheaper and require that you replace them much more frequently. A high quality pair of the leather shoes can last a few years – even decades – depending on how frequently you wear them and how well you upkeep them. It’s an investment.
2) Proper Fitting Shirts
Weight fluctuates. It’s a fact of life. As such, it’s good to carry a few sizes of shirts that fit you perfectly as your weight fluctuates. There’s nothing less attractive than an ill-fitting shirt and it’s a clear sign that you haven’t taken the time to properly dress yourself. Once again, if you are in a position to have tailored shirts, do it. But if not you can buy some well-fitting shirts and have them adjusted, if necessary. Personally I prefer shirts that have a ‘double yolk’ at the back so there’s more room for movement when you’re wearing a shirt.
3) Take Care With Your Socks
Nothing gives away a man’s attire more than poorly matched socks. For the most part, it is better to go with dark socks, that are discrete and do not draw attention. If you’re feeling bold, and the social occasion permits it, you can spice up your outfit with some interesting socks. When in doubt, stay dark.
While men may not find shopping for Men’s Clothing as fun as their female counterparts, it is important. How you dress yourself sends a signal to the world and you want to make sure you’re sending the right message.
