Layers of officewear

Office wear relies on several layers of clothing: on top of your shirt is your suit jacket, under which you could slip a cardigan and over which a topcoat may be added.

Use these opportunities to your advantage to draw attention away from your body’s less desirable aspects.

A substantial sweater is a particularly good investment right now; besides giving you comfort, it conveniently hides additional heft that you may not want to display.

Buttoning a jacket tip

When wearing an American-cut jacket (single-breasted), button up when standing or walking.  If your jacket has two buttons, button the top one.  If it has three, button the center one.

Dress for the situation

It’s always better to be a little bit overdressed than underdressed in a situation.

All you have to do is think about where and who you’re going to be with and just step it up one notch. But make sure you’re not better dressed than someone who is more important in a certain setting, like you’re boss. From: kinowear.com

Finding your sleeve length measurement:

To find your sleeve measurement, relax your arm, and place your hand on your hip with your elbow at a 90-degree angle.

Start at the middle of the back of your neck, measure over your shoulder and elbow, and down your arm to your wrist bone. Or, take a shirt that fits you very well, fold at the elbow to 90 degrees, and measure from the middle back of the collar to the cuff.

Sandals are meant to be worn bare-footed

Sandals are meant to be worn bare-footed. Never ever experiment with socks, while wearing sandals. As for wearing them with shoes, make sure that they are long enough to cover your shins, even with crossed legs.

Don’t make this mistake

A short-sleeve shirt, more precisely one with half sleeves, is not meant to be worn with a tie. Ties go only with full-sleeves shirts. Even better, avoid wearing short-sleeve shirts altogether, unless you want to casual look.

A gentleman and his shoes

Clean and pressed

Even business casual attire should be clean, well pressed, and not show wear.  The nicest khakis after 100 washings may not be your best choice. Carefully inspect new clothes for tags, and all clothes for dangling threads, etc. (as with interview attire).

Go Vintage

Here’s where you have one up on the women. At vintage and thrift shops you can find men’s clothing easily because men’s clothing doesn’t change that much over time, so it can still work today. While you are there, pick up that cheap nightstand that you need, too.
