Formal occasions demand that you look your very best. The dress suit is the pinnacle of elegance, and there are many rules that the sophisticated man should abide by when wearing one. If you are not used to wearing a suit, you’re likely to commit one of many formal wear faux pas. To ensure you turn heads for only the right reasons, look your best by avoiding these common mistakes:
- The Loud Suit: Save the color for the shirt and tie. Elegance is conservative by nature and you want your suit to subtly draw attention through sleek style, not clamor for it with loud colors. Choose a neutral color: grey, black, navy blue, or brown. Consider pinstripes for a little variance. The neutrality of your suit will match almost any shirt of the same tone.
- The Mismatched Suit: You might be tempted to throw together a sports coat and pants of a similar color to pass off as a suit. Who is going to know? Well, every other man who wears a suit on a regular basis will know! Once you’ve bought a suit and had it tailored, the difference in how you look is obvious, and you’ll recognize it in others. You will instantly feel more confident in a full suit with a contemporary look.
- The Ill-Fitting Suit: The number-one formal wear faux pas made my men is wearing an ill-fitting suit. You have a unique body shape and buying an off-the-rack suit almost guarantees that your suit won’t fit your every measurement perfectly. Go to a tailor to make alterations—this is quick and easy to accomplish.
