    A Modern Man’s Guide To Bespoke Dressing

    Posted by on

    A Guest Blog Post by Peter Minkoff , a men's lifestyle writer at Gentleman Zone & High Street Gent magazine from UK

    =========

    A Modern Man's Guide to Bespoked Dressing - Hipster

    Bespoke dressing has evolved with the passing of the decades, and what was once considered sharp and attractive can be portrayed as outdated and unfashionable in the modern world. The contemporary gentleman is all about style, combining various different patterns in creating a harmonious blend of colors and accessories, of length and width in portraying the perfect fit.

    However, dressing uniquely and showcasing your strengths through a strategic use of bespoke pieces and imagination is not an easy task. The majority of people fall prey to the common pitfalls of bespoke dressing in an attempt to achieve a daring look worthy of admiration, resulting in a comic display of tastelessness. Here is how you can achieve a “dressed to kill” persona and reap the benefits of bespoke dressing.

    BE DARING

    A Modern Man's Guide to Bespoked Dressing - Smart Casual

    You are unique, you have a noteworthy personality and a daring flair you want to showcase everywhere you go, any chance you get. You want to set yourself apart from the rest. Given the fact that your clothing ensembleis a picture worthy of a thousand words, you need to be careful and prudent in your approach, choosing the exact pieces that speak volumes about your daring personality.

    For this reason, you want to learn and master the art of combining patterns and colors in order to develop a personal style people will adore. However, always keep in mind that true beauty lies in simplicity so always opt for a single piece of daring attire, such as stylish socks, a unique pocket square, or feather bracelets hinting beneath your jacket sleeve.

    ACCESSORIZE LIKE A PRO

    If it is the suit that makes the man, then his daring choice of accessories will portray his killer personality and set him apart from the crowd. Contrary to popular belief, accessories should be worn with modesty and intent, and you should never allow yourself to over-accessorize in an attempt to paint a unique picture. Rather you should keep it simple and only give out a hint of your devilish persona that will intrigue everyone around you.

    Much like a hint of perfume, no ensemble is complete without a pair of unique cufflinks, a leather belt, a thin, stylish watch, and a complementary, leather wallet for a complete, sharp look. Always remember that a unified finish makes the man, therefore your wallet, belt and shoes should be made of the same material.

    ONE SUIT TO RULE THEM ALL

    Living in a fast-paced world has made it virtually impossible for a man to maintain a reasonable schedule during the day and allow himself to change into a different combination for the theater or a casual night out with friends in the evening.

    Fortunately, you can easily avoid being over- or under-dressed when you step out of the office with no time to change. By coming up with a perfect day-to-night combo, you will be ready to enter any venue in the evening and land every deal during the day.

    INVEST IN QUALITY

    A Modern Man’s Guide to Bespoke Dressing - Quality Tailoring

    When it comes to quality, there can be no compromise. People will judge you and they will label you according to the quality of your attire. Therefore, every single one of your shirts and suits has to be perfectly tailored and designed.

    Invest in quality materials, such as chambray, wool, cashmere, or pure silk and see every head turn as you enter the room. room. Your confidence will start to rise while everyone you meet will treat you with the respect you deserve.

    A FINISHING TOUCH

    Finally, you need to know that every type of tie has its time and place. You should have a set of unique ties to wear at the office, while bow ties should be reserved for special occasions, such as fundraisers, concerts, black-tie events, or a night out at the opera.

    Don’t forget to sprinkle a dash of your personal taste when combining different tie patterns with solid suit colors, and accessorizing accordingly for a complete look. And always remember – you can never be too well-dressed.

    A modern man is no longer dressed to impress – he is dressed to kill. By following these essential guidelines to bespoke dressing, you can easily rise above the crowd, create a unique appearance and reap the numerous benefits of fine clothing for years to come.
