Every man has features unique to themselves. So, why not take advantage of them? At DRYV we have picked up tips and tricks from our users. We asked some of the fashionable men in Chicago and got their permission to share some insight into men’s fashion and how you should dress to your body type:
Picking a collar that works with your face:
The most noticeable difference in collar types is their spread. Spread is the distance between the two collar points. Depending on the width of your face you should shoot for a collar that will even it out.
Thin Face- make sure to grab a spread collar
Wide Face- grab yourself a narrow (pointed) collar
Take the time to visit a respected tailor:
Go get yourself some trusted measurements. You don’t have to buy anything right away but save the measurements for later. One classic rule of thumb is that your sleeves should end on your wrist not over your hand, don’t be that guy.
Keep your clothes pressed with a trusted cleaner:
It is important to care for your clothes, not only so you look fashionable but so your clothes last longer. Routine pressing and correct storage will help your suits and shirts breathe. Dry cleaning removes the pesky grease and oils from your clothes unlike a regular wash with water. With on-demand cleaning like DRYV there really isn’t an excuse.
Wear your height:
If you are 6′5″ don’t wear a one button suit… Make sure to dress accordingly. One button will do for anyone on the shorter end. Increasing buttons as your height does. However, the best rule of thumb is a two button suit looks good on an average height male.
Now go forth and be fashionable.
