Rules of Style

Take an honest look in the mirror and be realistic on how you look. coming to terms with your body type can be liberating. Once you start wearing suits and trousers that is cut precisely to you fit, you will realize that no man looks elegant in a too tight jacket or baggy pants. 80% of style is having the right clothes for the occasion. Dress codes may have relaxed in recent years, but there are still rules. When in doubt, err on the formal side- and if you're going to a business meeting or a cocktail party, you're better off wearing a ties.

It's okay to wear a uniform. If you feel most comfortable in a charcoal suit with a pale tie and a pocket square, wear a variation on that outfit five days a week. Powerful men have signature looks .

Don't try to dress like a movie star unless you are one. Just because Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp can pull it off doesn't mean you can.Go ahead and experiment with  trends now and then, but don't wear a porkpie hat because you saw a celebrity do it.

Classics are classics for a reason. Men's style have changed over the past hundred 100 years. You shouldn't be the person who tries to break the mold. 

When you're dressing make sure that you consider the whole look. Your jacket, shirt, tie, pants and shoes might all be great pieces but do they work together? Stylish dressing is about creating an overall effect.

Be inquisitive. If a friend is looking particularly sharp go ahead and find out where he buys his threads. Chances are his answer will broaden your horizons.

Don't try to hard. Strive for being stylish rather that fashionable and remember that the most important person to dress for is you.
