The holiday season is the perfect excuse to meet the finest version of yourself.
You can walk around town in a tux and no one will wonder why, it’s just like the kids with their musical triangles going from door to door on their carols mission, a wonderful tradition where everyone plays their part. You know we want you to be perfectly dressed for yours, so follow our A-B-C of style and you’ve got nothing to worry about!
You are never too young to own a good quality tuxedo. It will get you out of the woods when times call for formality and, even if this means you wear it only once or twice every year, if you pay attention to your figure this is one suit that will last you a lifetime. So, have in mind to buy a classic one, even though modern twists are usually a rarity in this category.
Dress shoes are one of the last links we have to the gentlemen of yesteryears, be it wingtips, oxfords or brogues. Allen Edmonds makes some of the finest and this year we urge you to invest in a pair exclusively made for Brooks Brothers.
We never get tired of talking accessories: get that wide, silk bow tie and tie it yourself. As we have said before, a home-made tie is far better than a ready-made one and it gives you that tiny dose of scruffiness that is enough to provide you with the desired sexiness.
If you want your look to be perfectly proper, choose a pair of socks that is almost non-existent. A black, sleek knit is ideal. If your age and attitude can stand it, however, we strongly urge you to go all out with a pair in flashy red or green!
