ALL IN THE DETAILS: Quality Over Quantity

March 23rd, 2016 at 2:00am

In general, men do not have a wide array of outfit choices as compared to women. Hence, patterns, colors, quality and accessories are fundamental traits to differentiate a standard outfit from an outfit that makes a statement.

This Fashionisto’s outfit of choice is anything but standard, and his accessories are the pivotal component. I believe in quality over quantity, and that’s why this Fashionisto caught my eye. His Coach watch and Cole Haan briefcase are both high-quality items. The camel color of both accessories give his outfit an air of sophistication and luxury. Both items would help any college student impress in the classroom and transition seamlessly to the professional world. Interestingly, this Fashionisto brought a touch of flare and originality to his professional getup with his belt. The black and gray belt is handwoven in a province in Argentina from saddle leather. Accessories and details made this Fashionisto stand out from the standardized crowd.

Let us not forget about the slim fit, navy suit this Fashionisto is wearing. The slim fit cut brings a youthful edge to the classic blue suit with a square pattern. He completed his ensemble with two-toned shoes, a blue and white striped button-up shirt and a timeless red tie that belonged to his grandfather.

How To: For all you Fashionistos out there, try picking out pieces that are high-quality. Instead of buying four items, buy one for the same amount. This item will last longer and will help you differentiate yourself. Finally, a last detail, invest in a good tie and spend time learning how to tie it; remember your grandson might use it one day!
