The dress shirt is perhaps the most common staple of any wardrobe, not only used in the formal and business settings, but has also gained strong traction in casual and “night-out” atmospheres. When navigating the fashion world from the crazy designs to the basics whites, there are a few principles to keep in mind when building your wardrobe.
The five elements to consider when putting together your look for the day are the suit jacket, the shirt, the tie, the socks (or hose) and the handkerchief.

Since it covers 90% of your body, it is important to have a suit cut to flatter your own strengths and weaknesses rather than the standard off-the-rack suits built to fit some imaginary “average” man. Now one of the big questions many struggle with is deciding between a custom-made bespoke suit vs. a made-to-measure option.
