1.

A man should try wearing a suit throughout a normal day. I do most things in a suit–and sometimes even in a tuxedo–so I’m really comfortable in one.I don’t believe in playing around much with suit cuts. I like a simple, classic shape that gives a man strong shoulders, a fitted waist, and long legs.

A man should always have a well-cut, dark suit, a pair of classic, black lace-up shoes, and lots of crisp, white cotton shirts.

4.

The blue blazer is one of the most important staples in a man’s wardrobe. It can be worn in a pinch to any occasion. Dress it up with dark grey trousers or dress it down with jeans.

5.

Always keep your jacket buttoned. If I had one rule for men, it’s this. It instantly makes your silhouette.
