No Such Thing as “Off the Rack”

off the rack fashion
Off the rack? I think not!

Men. Yes you are burly, the protector, tough, etc., but you should also be well-tailored! It doesn’t make you any less of a man if your clothes aren’t hanging off of you. If you can pinch an inch at the shoulder of your sports coat or suit jacket, then it’s too big! Appearance is always the first impression and quite frankly, you should look like you care.

This doesn’t mean that everything has to be inordinately expensive, we’re talking the basics: hygiene (trimmed nose hair), a style that suits the texture of your hair, that shirt that brings out the sparkle in your eye. These things are important.

Your clothing protects, insulates, and provides basic functions; it is an expression of you. They reflect your culture, style, social status, and much more. What do you want your clothes to say about you?

Listen, clothes don’t need to be designer to look high end. A simple nip & tuck at the sleeve length or framing your rib cage to give definition will not only make most women take a second look but will also add to the perceived value of what you’re wearing. The extra cash you spend on tailoring should be worth it once you experience the final results.

How Can I Help You? Do you have a project you need help with? fashion advice? I got you!
