1. Good Hygiene.
Looking really good and being a gentleman always starts with pride in yourself. And that always begins with one’s personal hygiene. The initial hallmark of being a well-dressed gentleman is always good hygiene. Once your personal cleanliness is taken care of, you can focus on your personal ensemble for the day.
2. Clean, unstained, well-mended clothes.
They don't have to be new -- but they can't be ripped, stained, and threadbare. You also don’t have to wear a new, freshly laundered shirt every day, but it does have to be pressed. But if it sinks or has any visible stains, wear a fresh one.
Now that your clothes are clean, they also need to well-pressed, with a crisp trouser crease and freshly-pressed dress shirt are essential.
Your dress shirt, jacket, and trousers need to fit properly. And always better a little loose than a little tight. It always looks bad if your clothes are too tight or too small. But clothes that are a little large can have their own look. Just like Anderson & Shepphard -- their jackets are a little large to create drape, and people think they are amazing.
If you are not comfortable in a suit, it doesn't fit. I'm telling you, the most comfortable clothing a man can wear is a dress ensemble. A properly-fitting wool suit where the fabric is matched to the climate, a dress shirt whose collar fits properly, and tie is absolutely the most comfortable clothing a man can wear. If it isn't, it doesn't fit. That is a fact.
5. Well-Polished Dress Shoes
Well-polished shoes with unfrayed fray laces absolutely make difference in being well-dressed. This has been proven study after study. Both men and women notice the condition of a man’s shoes right away. Not only with well-polished shoes make you look better, but they’ll make your shoes last longer. A little bit of effort, some Saphir shoe polish, and our Hanger Project High-Shine Chamois is all you need. Of course, we have an extensive library of shoe care tutorials to help you learn how to properly care for and polish your shoes.
6. Pocket Square
You can never go wrong with a white pocket square; however; matching your pocket square to your ensemble in a neutral or complementary color is always a good idea. However, never exactly match your pockets square to your tie in the same silk.
7. Nice Tie with a Proper Dimple
Most ties look best with a dimple. And most ties look good with their ends relatively close to each other.
8. A nice Fragrance.
It is always nice to top off a beautiful ensemble with a little bit of a nice cologne so that you smell as good as you look. It doesn’t have to be an expensive fragrance, but it does have to smell good. Just be careful to not use too much so that it is not overpowering. The only way you can go wrong with fragrance is if you use way too much. For a large part of the day, people will be put off because you smell way too strong. But, in general, some cologne is a good idea.
If you are preparing for anything important, you start by taking care of yourself. You take a nice hot shower, you shave, you trim your nose and ears, and eyebrows if necessary. You put on a little cologne. Shine your shoes, press any garments that need to be touched up, and then dress well. This doesn’t have to be difficult, time-consuming, or expensive – instead, it can be a ritual you enjoy and to which you look forward.
