Upgrade your style: 6 Menswear tips

Alter your jeans for the perfect fit

Whether they are skinny, slim, regular, relaxed or loose fitted jeans, for a small price to pay, you can obtain the perfect fit. Your options are hemming them for the desired length, take  the waist in or out to make them more comfortable or taper the pant leg for more of a snug fit around the legs. These are easy fixes to make you look sharp, dressed up or dressed down in your denim. Brands we recommend AG Jeans, Paige and Jacob Cohen.

Available in-store.

Opt for a thin wallet not to bulk your suit pockets

Bulky pockets… It’s just not a good look. A wallet should be practical and take up the least room as possible. After all, the minimalist trend is in. Now you can have good looks and functionality in a hand full while protecting your suit from premature damage. We recommend a David Hampton wallet.

Casual should never means sloppy

Always stay neat. Try playing around with your favourite combinations for your weekend attire. It can be as simple as a pair of jeans, a dress shirt and some leather oxfords. A man with style will always dress to impress. And without comfort; there isn’t style.

Keep your shoes clean; no matter the price

Polish leather often, protect your suedes and wash canvas by hand. A great way to lift up the appearance of your sneakers can simply be to change the laces. Don’t make the mistake of neglecting your shoes as soon as you get home!

Show some ankle this summer

From shortened trousers to chinos, from the streets to the runways, ankles are being exposed. Don’t be afraid to go for that shorter pair of pants or rolling them up to give yourself a bold look and expose your statement footwear.

The right shades

Polo Ralph Lauren

The right pair of shades will give you a complete look on those sunny days. They will even turn your sweat pants and sweater days around to make you look decent. A quality pair of sunglasses also have a great impact on your health: they will reduce eyestrain, headaches and fatigue.
