How to Dress to Appear Thinner Today

Whether there has been a recent weight gain or you are just attempting to appear thinner, follow these simple tips to create the illusion you have lost 10 lbs today.

1. Accessorize: Don’t be afraid to add some shades, a tie,  or a scarf but keep the frames of the glasses small and the stripes or pattern on the scarf and tie vertical.

2. Posture and Height: Choose a boot or dress shoe with a bit of a heel and stand up straight! By just rolling your shoulders back and lifting your chest as you sit or walk, you can appear 2 inches taller (and thinner).

3. Color Theory: In general, darker colors create the illusion that one is thinner. Choose top layers in shades of gray, charcoal, navy and black.

4. Tee shirts: A high V neck tee creates a thinner look than that of a normal round neck tee.  Key word is “high” V neck. Let’s not show too much chest, okay?

5. Jeans and Chinos: Darker colored jeans and chinos are the best choice for you. Try a chino in this season’s army or olive green.

6. Dress Shirts: Keep stripes vertical and make sure they fit like a glove. A shirt that is too bulky at the waist will make you appear larger than you are as will a shirt that is too tight in the chest and waist. Try a custom dress shirt.

7.  Sweater: Layering a light weight knit V neck sweater over a button down dress shirt is the best choice to appear more trim. The bulkier the sweater, the larger you will appear. Try a nice merino wool or cashmere v neck sweater.

8. Dress slacks: Again, the lighter the shade, the larger you may appear so choose a darker shade for your suit or dress slack. Avoid a cuff if possible and the less pleats you can go with, the better. Flat front is my recommendation.

9. Suit Coats and Sports Coats: Choose a 3 button single breasted suit. A one button coat may appear to pull a bit if you are heavier in the mid-section so the 3 button will give you more room. The two places your coat must fit well is the waist and the shoulder. If it is too large or small, it will add an additional 5 lbs. to your appearance.

10. Topcoats: When buying a topcoat, make sure you have that sport coat on to ensure there is room for it. Choose an overcoat that hits no more than 4 inches above your knee.

Now, get out there!

Fall 2015 Bordeaux Based Palettes

Seen all over the Men’s Fall/Winter 2015/2016 Runway were custom dress shirts in shades of burgundy, maroon,  wine, eggplant and plum. Possibly the best thing about these shades is their versatility. Shades of burgundy can be worn with any base color of suit or topcoat. Let’s style our shades of wine based on suit color.

Navy Suit: The blue undertone of a soft plum works well with the classic navy suit.  I prefer a lighter shade of pinot or soft plum custom dress shirt unbuttoned with a navy suit for a bit of a casual look.  If worn with a tie, why not match your tie to a custom dress shirt in this season’s hottest shade? We can help you design one here.

The fur scarf may not be for everyone but is another trend this Fall.








Black Suit: Because a black suit goes with just about everything in your closet, you can really get creative here. If going for a deep eggplant or Bordeaux dress shirt, try a solid black tie for a crisp modern look or have a little more fun with a patterned tie with a dark base color. Here is a nice classic white shirt with another trending fall fashion, the horizontal striped tie.

This classic clean look shows off 2 of this season’s trends.









Charcoal Suit: Why not go a little wild with a plaid charcoal suit? If you have one of these, a plum or wine colored tie will really bring things together. I prefer a classic white custom dress shirt with this look to keep things subtle. If you want to add just another hint of flare, try a small print polka dotted tie.

A smooth way to wear two patterns: plaids and small polka dots.









What other ways can you style this shade into your wardrobe this season? Let us know!

Current Color Hype: Cobalt Blue

Keeping your style current is easy if you add a trending color. Play it cool with the Cobalt Blue.  There are endless ways to add this hue to your wardrobe to update your closet. Here are just a few ideas from head to toe.

1. Tip your hat: If you are a man who wears many hats, why not make one of them Cobalt Blue?








2. Perfect Fitting Dress Shirt: Although we call it “French Blue” we offer this shade in many textures here.








3. Say it with a Tie: Perk up that classic suit with a bold tie in Cobalt. We offer a beautiful Twill Cobalt tie like the one below here.








4. Suit it up OR add Cobalt Kicks: Maybe choose one or the other but we do love these shoes.








Let me know your thoughts on this color.
