Body positions:

There are certain things to do depending on your body stance. While you are standing, you can either fasten the second button or undo all the buttons. However, while you are sitting, you should never fasten any buttons, to keep the shape of the suit jacket.

Be minimal:

Don’t forget to keep the whole look simple. There are a few accessories such as a pocket square, lapel pin and tie bars or pin but you don’t have to use them all at the same time. You can use two at any time.

Classic watch:

One of the signs of a true gentleman is a classic wristwatch. It is missing in the youths of today. It is the perfect compliment to a well tailored suit. Also, remember that classic wristwatches don’t have to be expensive.


Always remember to remove the stitching on vents when you get or buy a suit. It also makes you look very neat and proper when it is off.

Bottom button:

No matter what you do, never forget to leave your bottom button undone, it creates the perfect silhouette that accentuates your figure and makes you look better. Also, it looks more appropriate.
