Great layering requires great clothes to layer with. Let’s identify the different layering pieces, and we’ll put together some combinations so you’re not left out in the cold when it comes to doing it right.
The way your accessories fit, specifically with regards to neckties, is of paramount importance. This should be a reflection of your collar style, which should be a reflection of your facial structure. So it all begins with your body type and facial structure.
Like it or not (and once you’re seeing the benefits, you’ll like it), your life gets better when you feel really good about yourself and dress accordingly. You become genuinely and distinctively charming.
The best way to tap the kind of charm that gets those responses is to notice what’s attractive about you in particular, and enjoy playing that up.
My biggest issue usually is: Do I take a suit, or do I just hope to not need one?
While lightweight casual pieces and basics like simple tees are nice to wear in the spring and summer, those same items don’t exactly cut it in the fall. You need (drumroll, please) some corduroy pants.
You wouldn’t wear gym shoes with a suit. Don’t make the same mistake with your watch. This post is all about choosing the right watch for your outfit.

While it’s possible to get by with an all-purpose wristwatch in most instances, there’s something special about having one specifically for formal or special business occasions.
It’s an event when you put it on… a small deviation from your normal routine, but significant enough to make you sit up straight and notice: Today is special.
I came across this question in the archives that should clear up any questions about whether to go for off-the-rack, made-to-measure, or bespoke suiting.
What exactly is a gentleman?
Considering the name of this site, I feel I have the obligation to address exactly what a gent is.
Do you like whiskey? How about awesome fall clothing? Will you be in the NYC area on Thursday, September 24th?
Come join me, along with my friend Megan (Style Girlfriend) at the Bonobos Guideshop on Fifth Ave!
What I want to focus on in this series is fit: How it fits right out of the box, what turned out perfectly, and what I need to alter to get to 100%.
Hopefully this series gives you more confidence in ordering made-to-measure suiting in the future.
A man with style understands a wristwatch represents much more than what it’s designed to do.
