The days are slowly becoming shorter and one by one the leaves are turning golden. Yes, summer is coming to end and autumn is here to replace it. You can forget about the hot summer days and embrace the brisker season ahead. Prepare yourself for heavier fabrics, deeper earthy tones, and a lot of layering.

Other than the obvious swaps such as shorts for pants and jeans, t-shirts for knitted sweaters, and cotton for cozy wool, you must consider swapping your formal business attire too such as the linen and seersucker suits with equally stylish yet warmer ones. The fabric of your suit will make all the difference when the cold and windy season is here but at the same time, you will need to remain sharp and stylish.

If you want your next formal outfit to make a big positive impression, one thing is certain: you’ll need to pay attention to the details.

How To Pair Men’s Shoe and Belt Combinations That Look Amazing

How To Pair Men’s Shoe and Belt Combinations That Look Amazing

As far as frequently asked questions about menswear styling go, this is perhaps one of the most ubiquitous: how should I match my belt and shoes, again?

To be fair, it’s a good question. Belts are a too-commonly overlooked wardrobe essential that, when properly matched, can help create outfits that are simultaneously full of exciting contrast and cohesive as a whole. Improperly matched belts, on the other hand, can make even the most expertly tailored garments look sloppy and unfocused.

Menswear should be about helping anyone and everyone look and feel great in the clothes they wear, and without spending the requisite time on learning the fundamental rules of fashion like these, achieving great outfits is going to be near impossible.

Fortunately, you won’t need to spend hours (or even minutes) trying to drill this essential fashion knowledge into your head.

Once you understand the logic behind it, matching belts and shoes is simple enough for anyone to become an expert. For your reference, here are the rules to keep in mind when matching shoes, belts, and other leather garments and accessories in your wardrobe together.

The Most Versatile Men's Garment: Sport Coats

The Most Versatile Men's Garment: Sport Coats

The sport coat seems to have taken the spotlight in recent years. The reason I wanted to devote an entire blog post to sport coats, because I believe they are the most versatile garment in a men’s wardrobe. With fashion becoming more casual, the suit has almost been replaced by the sport coat. The sport coat is the perfect business casual garment.

Business casual, usually means business up top and party on the bottom. And by party, we just mean a casual pair of chinos. But a pair of chinos, make the world of a difference in comfort.

The sport coat can make any casual outfit appropriate for almost every occasion. Let’s say you just feel like wearing jeans that day, that’s a casual pant, but if you throw on a sport coat with it, you’re all of the sudden looking put together, and appropriate for whatever business you have going on that day.

Especially us Cincinnati men, blue jeans are a staple for us in the midwest.

Fashionable Clothes For Guys: Three Common Qualities

Fashionable Clothes For Guys: Three Common Qualities

Especially if you’ve only recently started investing energy into looking your best and dressing well, learning how to put together fashionable outfits can be challenging.

From the seemingly vast differences between styles and designers (compare, say, Teleria Zed’s take on trousers to Rick Owens’) to the sometimes minute differences between types of garments (what really differentiates an oxford shirt from a button down anyway?), it’s easy to find yourself lost.

And if you’re feeling lost just looking at the clothing landscape, you’re almost certainly not feeling good and confident, which is what dressing well is really all about.

Fortunately, it really doesn’t have to be complicated or confusing. Once you realize that making any garment look good generally relies on the same three characteristics, you can start to find your place in the world of menswear relatively quickly.

How to Layer Clothes for Men

How to Layer Clothes for Men

If you’re new to dressing well, wondering which clothes you should add to your wardrobe might not be the first problem you feel like you need to solve in order to step up your fashion game. If you’re anything like I was when I started to learn how to dress more effectively, you might be wondering how you should be pairing, matching, and layering the clothes that you already have long before you think about buying anything new.

It might seem like an obvious skill to some, but for many men, it’s one that takes conscious time and energy to develop. It certainly did for me: when I started learning about dressing well, I didn’t even know where to start when it came time to compose an outfit.

I had to spend time doing research on my own to figure out how I should be thinking about pairing clothes together. And once I did, I felt so much more confident, not just in my ability to compose appealing outfits from the clothes I already own, but also in my ability to cut through the noise when shopping for clothes and identify pieces that I’d enjoy wearing.

Even better, though it can seem intimidating at first, if you have the right resources to work with, developing this framework for approaching your outfits doesn’t take a lot of effort. It can really be as simple as a series of questions you ask yourself when composing your outfit every day.

So if you’re struggling with composing layered outfits that look put-together and make you feel good, look no further: I’ll walk you through the resources I used when I was developing my personal taste to help you create a simple logical framework for composing great outfits.

Office Appropriate: Designer Denim

Office Appropriate: Designer Denim

Depending on your lifestyle, denim is arguably the most important piece in your wardrobe. Even the professional world has become more accepting of casual work attire, allowing your favorite pair of blue jeans to be considered work appropriate.

Even if this is the case, that doesn’t mean all types of blue jeans are business appropriate. There is a fine line between a nice tailored and formal looking pair of blue jeans and a baggy outdated pair you’ve owned for the past 15 years. These jeans automatically scream unprofessional and could potentially make your bosses change the blue jean policy.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when searching for the perfect office appropriate pair of denim.
