The thing about a great tailored suit is that it can serve you for many different purposes, and although to many they may all seem cookie cutter, they can all look personalized if you learn to put your style to use. It can be as professional as you want or as free as you allow it to be, choose what makes you comfortable. TTG

White pants are for the bold and daring, and can be tastefully done if the color isn’t overdone. When dealing with white pants, one must know to keep everything else as minimal as possible, although accessories and bags are a go for the all white treatment. Just beware of the Spring/Summer stains that can occur at your local BBQ’s, but if you do get one, be on the lookout for our post on how to remove the most common stains. TTG
