Rule number one for fashion must-haves
You never know what opportunity will present itself in a day. You will find yourself in new places and with new people.
Every woman knows she must have a little black dress while traveling. She can take her outfit from afternoon tea to an elegant dinner in minutes with proper shoes and accessories.
The equivalent to the little black dress for women is the gray suit for men. Silk ties, jewelry, and some nice leather shoes will take you effortlessly to any event. Like the black dress, dress down your gray suits with colorful shirts. Remember to wear a light tie and pocket square for an afternoon. Switch to deep and chic colors for the evening.
Get Your clothing tailored.
It must fit you well even if you buy your suit off the rack. It is better to buy one nice suit per year or one jacket and two pairs of trousers and have them altered to fit than to purchase several cheap suits or wear them unaltered. A man of wealth will only wear trousers that fit him correctly. People in high society can spot manufactured fabrics a mile away, and they know genuine leather from knock-offs. While building your wardrobe, your thought is always, “Buy the best I can get, even if I can only get one!” Watch for sales to land good deals.
A good laundry service can clean, repair, and sometimes alter your suits. They will wash your shirts, jeans, and sweaters. Your shirts will always have fresh creases. Your colors will stay bold. There will be fewer snags and less stretching, and your clothes will last longer because they are made better.

Men who are working within budget sometimes neglect one thing. It is not their clothing, watch, or shoes. Men have to learn to be professionally groomed and then use that information.
Take care of your eyebrows. If your eyebrows are very thick, have them trimmed and shaped. If you wear facial hair, have it professionally groomed regularly.
Take care of your teeth, and pay attention to your breath. It is not okay to show up anywhere chewing gum. You should always look well-groomed. No exceptions.
Work with a professional hair stylist and determine the best cut for you. Keep it combed, clean, and conditioned.

Spend Money On Shoes
Shoes are essential to our looks and our health. If you can only buy one pair of shoes yearly, buy good ones. Stay away from trends. Buy rich-quality, traditional shoes. Shoes of a conventional style can be worn with a variety of outfits. Tim Little of the heritage shoe brand, Grenson tells us that quality shoes will last at least 15 years. Stay with primary colors and styles so your shoes are still in style through fashion changes.
Classic black shoes with a pointed toe are always in style. They look expensive when worn with suits or casual slacks. They also work with jeans. Patent leather is a good choice for 2023. Take them in for repair if worn or scuffed or if the laces have not been changed for a year.
Wear a tie and a pocket square a shade darker than your suit. Express and impress with your personal flare, but don’t go too far. It is easy to cheapen the look of a suit with a very loud tie.
When it comes to accessories, less is more. Understated and chic is the look you want. Sometimes a simple gold chain is more appropriate than a string of diamonds.
Learn the value of clothing and materials. Find the styles that fit your body best. You have a unique style. It is different for everyone. Look at your wardrobe as an investment. It is learning to get and wear the best of the best while saving money with your strategy.
Whether you were born with money or it just came to you, you can look like a fashion star. Get started on your wardrobe today.
