Q: I ‘ve been following your style for a while now and I noticed that you incorporate color into a lot of your outfits. How can I tastefully add some color to my wardrobe while keep things professional?
A: Adding color into your wardrobe and your daily outfits is probably my favorite part of getting dressed. However, depending on your work environment, incorporating color can be a difficult task. Therefore, you should try wearing a springlike pocket square with a solid tie, seen here. You can also try wearing a scarf in a contrasting color for that extra pop of color, seen here.
Lastly, if your workplace is more of a relaxed and creative environment, try blending patterns and fabrics to create a unique look, seen here
Q: I recently found a great tailor not too far from me and I have been trying to figure out the perfect pant break. I am 6’2 and weigh about 200 pounds. Any suggestions?
A: Pant breaks are truly a matter of personal preference. I prefer no break and a 1.5 in. cuff, seen above. However, I realized that larger guys tend to gravitate towards a 2 in. cuff and a medium break, seen below.
Q: It has been snowing like crazy and it’s really been doing some damage to some of my favorite shoes. How do you protect your shoes from the snow?
A: I live in Buffalo, NY and its also been snowing a lot here lately. I have always been a strong believer in keeping your shoes clean. Especially since that is said to be the first thing that women notice on a man. Therefore, I use rubber slip-on’s to protect my shoes from the rain, snow and salt. I have had mine for a couple years now and I never leave home without them.
As always, thanks for reading and please feel free to send in more style questions.
