Tailoring for the Man in Your Life
Watching your man try, and fail, to achieve his goals can be frustrating, particularly when the solution could be something as simple as a change to his presentation. Perhaps you could even be on hand to help him discover a new, more confident man beneath it all; after all, how many magazines do you sift through on a daily basis that express the importance of image? Helping your significant other to improve his look, and outlook, could be the key to his successes – behind every man is a woman in charge of his wardrobe!
Bespoke tailoring is a fantastic way of making a good impression, as well as increasing your man’s opportunities for success. The motto ‘dress to impress’ is absolutely key here; after all, nothing says, “hire me” like an outfit tailored to fit your man’s shape perfectly. Perfectly fitted suits will improve formal presentation, can boost a man’s confidence and presence, and help him to make an overall better impression; it’s about time your man stopped dreaming and started achieving, and you can help him on his way.
Where to start
Now, we’re not suggesting you throw out your man’s entire wardrobe the baggy t-shirts, jeans, and comfy pants can stay for those well-deserved days off, however, a few statement pieces at the fore of his wardrobe wouldn’t go amiss, giving him some go-to pieces that can be pulled on quickly for an instant confidence-boost. Confidence is the keyword here, of course. If your significant other feels good, the chances are his attitude will alter to match, and those opportunities that have so far eluded him will soon follow suit (quite literally, too).
While image isn’t everything it can certainly help when it comes to interviews, impressing employers and clients, or making a suitably good impression in the work environment. Plus, a suited and booted gentleman is rather easy on the eye; we didn’t say you wouldn’t reap the benefits of his new look too!
Now if anyone knows how to dress to impress while complementing their figures, it’s women – after all, a huge portion of the media is dedicated to color, style, and fabric, helping us to choose outfits that complement everything from skin tone to figure. Isn’t it about time we shared some of our style secrets with the boys?
Tailoring for the man in your life is surprisingly simple, applying the very same logic we use every single day; if something feels good, then it probably looks rather dapper too. Your man could learn a lot from the formal styles to be found in your wardrobe; the comfy, yet figure flattering shirts and blazers, the sharp, clean lines of your pencil skirt and trousers, and those color-coordinated items that just seem to go. You may even find that your man develops something of a strut in his new attire; let him have his moment, and you may just see his luck changing.
The perfect fit
Dressing for success is all about improved presentation; why change just one element of your man’s look, when you can assist with his overall image and confidence? When tailoring for the man in your life, it is important to consider clothes that can be worn – in other words, items that are tailored to his shape, and not just garments that may look good but simply hang on his frame.
It’s time to think smart, tailored suits, matching shirts, plain ties and sharp shoes; a whole new look that can be pulled together with minimum effort, but maximum impact. Bespoke suits are particularly good at helping your man to exude confidence in that all-important interview. Clothing that has been designed to fit his shape will flatter and dazzle and, more importantly, allow your special someone to choose something that he feels comfortable in. Comfort, after all, is just as important as looking good, and will help him to feel as confident as he looks. Color choices are also imperative. A neutral or white shirt teamed with a plain tie works best; don’t be tempted to distract from your man’s overall look with a brightly colored shirt and tie combo. Bold isn’t always best.
The most important thing is you make your recommendations done out of love and understanding of who your man is and what HE wants. Now that the man in your life has discovered the benefits of tailoring, you may find that some of his new fashion choices stay put. Ease him into these changes without stepping out of his comfort zone, who knows? He might even let you get started on working on his personal grooming!
