It seems like girls have all the fun when it comes to accessorizing. They get necklaces, earrings, piercings, belts, and bracelets. Most guys are still under the impression that you don’t get to add personality when you get to dress up. However, I’m here to tell you that this mindset is wrong. Menswear has a few functional accessories that are definitely able to be used to step up your suit game. In this article, we’re going to look at some of my picks as my favourite types of menswear accessories.
For those of you who don’t know, lapels are the collar-like part of your suit jacket or blazer.

Continuing my series on educating, I’m going to talk about the vest.

When I first came to college, I wore shorts and tee shirts and was a freshman who had no sense of identity and no sense of style. Eventually I realized that since I’m in college, I can be who I want to be and dress how I want to dress. It took a while, but I’m still not there yet. I’m constantly trying new things, tailoring my clothes, and I’m in this journey of self discovery with my style. However, there are a few things that I’ve learned since my freshman year that would’ve saved me so much time in being who I am.
Here’s a short little post on something super important to do after buying a suit. Nothing is ever good “simply off the rack”. No matter if you got it at Goodwill, H&M, or a high end store, a suit will always need tailoring. Why? Because you’re not a mannequin, you’re you. You have a unique body type, so something that was mass produced will not automatically look good. For this post, we’re going to focus on the length of your pants.
