One of the biggest factors that can either make or break a man’s outfit is proper fit. Campus-wide, this is generally where most male students struggle to make the grade. Any guy can throw on an expensive shirt and designer jeans; but leave the shirt untucked and the jeans baggy and unhemmed, and he might as well be wearing sweats because the look is equally sloppy.
Well-tucked-and-tailored pieces are essential in any fashionable man’s wardrobe, and indisputably the key ingredient in looking professional and put together. In other words, well-fitted clothes make for great first impressions. Great first impressions open the door to even greater opportunities. Need I say more? Fit is everything—so study up boys!
Take this Fashionisto, for example. I caught this stylish guy looking fit to perfection on his trek home from class, sporting a classic Ralph Lauren button-down tucked into a pair of immaculately fitting dark wash jeans. A simple leather belt helped keep his look tailored and clean, while rolled cuffs and a few open buttons kept things casual enough for class. His black framed glasses looked sharp and professional, while giving off the nerdy-cute vibe every girl has a sweet spot for. At first glance, this Fashionisto looks confident and responsible, and more likely than not, on the fast track to success.
Hint: Make sure to keep your wardrobe stocked with properly fitting essentials. If you’re not sure what sizes you should be wearing, go to a tailor or ask a friend with measuring tape for help. Don’t get caught wearing pants baggy at the hem or shirts busting at the seams, because either way you’ll only come across as sloppy. Most importantly, remember: every man should have a wardrobe that fits him like a king.
