Altered State Part I- The Dress Shirt

A few days ago while getting ready for work , I got an instant message via Facebook from a friend of mine asking what articles of clothing could be altered. Like I had many years before , he too had grown tired of wearing things that were too big or improperly tailored. Ill fitting shirts or pants that are entirely too long or too big in the waist. There’s no reason that any grown man should have to walk around looking like a middle school student that raided his older brother’s closet . Buying off the rack shouldn’t mean your clothing has to appear as if you were stretched stretched across one . Alterations and fit can make the difference between you looking like a million bucks or some poor misguided schmuck . So with that being said, let’s get started.

Dress Shirts 

COMMON MISTAKES

Shirt is too long or too blousy (full), sleeves too long 

If when untucked the end your shirt comes below the bar tack stitch of your zipper it’s too long PERIOD. This along with blousiness shirt can create a balloon effect when tucked, and make you look like the Good Year Blimp on a windy day.

REMEDY :

Sleeves can along with the length of your shirt can be shortened by a seamstress or tailor. The cuff of your sleeve should fall right at your wrist . The front of your shirt should not fall below To combat blousiness have your tailor add darts to your shirt the back of your shirt, these can be let out should you gain an inch or two in your mid section. The length of your shirt can also be shortened (see pic below)

Who Say’s There’s ‘No Church in The Wild’

I HATE HATE HATE looking for ties, it’s time consuming and usually fruitless, unless you’re willing to spend upwards of anywhere from $79 and up for a tie at your favorite men’s department store. (which I’ve done during my “RICHER EFFECT” moments)  Or the alternative, you could always pilfer through a wasteland of bins at your local discount chain store, navigating your way around ruthless bargain hunting women with nasty attitudes and sticky handed toddlers. Just to be neglected by a staff of people that look as badly put together as their store, and the end result of finding yet still, OVER PRICED, slightly damaged designer irregulars. It’s disheartening… Listen, I’ve never been that tie in the box with matching shirt type of guy, that guy wouldn’t even read this blog let alone know the agony of our Sartorial Brotherhood, but if you are that guy and you find this post offensive , WHO CARES !! You buy box set shirt and tie combos! You don’t get to have an opinion!..Any guy in his mid 20′s to late 30′s that takes pride in his appearance, but also takes pride in being fiscally responsible knows that trying to find what you want in a world of retail that caters to mostly women can make you feel like a caged animal in a zoo. Young New Orleans upstarts The Wild Life Reserve, knows our pain and seeks to free us from that cage. The Wild Life Reserve brings us classic men’s neckwear, made from vintage fabrics and raw silks, from all over the world, made right in the heart of The Big Easy and brought right to your doorstep via their Tie Of The Month Club. Check out their selection and register for a membership at thewildlifereserve.com , be just in time for Father’s Day.

Style tips for white trousers via Men’s Style Pro

Originally posted on Men's Style Pro:

It’s very easy to style white chinos the “nautical way” by pairing them with a striped or solid navy shirt. Of course, I have nothing against the nautical style, especially for the summer, but, white chinos have their place outside of the boating realm. One of the great characteristic of white chinos is that they are a blank canvas that can be pair with just about anything. As opposed to white jeans, chinos have the ability and the texture to be dressed up well for the office or a semi-casual event and they can really be dressed down with a polo or henley shirt. Below are four outfits that address the issue of stylish white chinos without going nautical and without relying on “peacocking” colors to seem on…
