    Wearing a suit or anything for that matter in any other way than what you can comfortably function in just so that you can get a desired reaction from people when they see you, doesn’t sound very manly at all. Some of us are going to Job interviews so that we “can” afford to pay loads of money for a brand new custom tailored suit because the only one we have doesn’t fit quite right.. Saying that only “real men” do something like wear a suit to the vast majority’s satisfaction is offensive to me. All men are real mean.. some are really bad people, some of us are really good people. Some of us know exactly what we want and we have it all together and some of us don’t.. Some men would kill birds with stones and some men would cut the trees down and stomp on the nests.. The point I’m trying to make is we are all different and there is no one category or list of attributes to specifically describe all of us. We live in a world where everyone wants to be judge, jury and executioner.. the way that “everyone” is doing it is the only right way..Am I saying that its okay for a man to walk around with his underwear showing?.. No I’m not .. I do, however, have a problem with people making assumptions and drawing conclusions about an individual because of their choice of colours on clothing, home interiors, and vehicles..or their facial hair.. Saying things like.. “he’s/ she’s a goth..they wear black all the time..” or “hes dirty/ lazy/(insert negative attribute here).. he needs to shave..” I don’t like generalization when it comes to human beings because we are all different.. I won’t be put in a box and be told how to conduct myself.

    I’m surprised at how cheap tailoring is. Just a couple of dollars to adjust the length of a pant or sleeve, or alter a stitch. I always thought that tailoring was incredibly expensive, but it’s really not. I think it’s worth it to check out the thrift stores, find the best fitting thing you can, and then take it to get it tailored. You might spend about $15-20 on the suit, and under $10 to get the right fit. Under $30 for a “custom” fit is kind of amazing, considering how expensive a brand new suit can be.

    exactly!

    Can anyone tell me why some men leave the tag on the sleeve?

    yes visiting a tailor to have a suit made is the ideal , but these tips helps someone to know what to look for when buying ‘ off the peg ‘ men , always buy the best quality that you can afford you can also have something tilored to fit better , ie length of trousers or a large jacket slimmed to fit .a man that opts for ‘ popular styles ‘, has NO style . fashionable iIS NOT stylish ! very often it is cheap & nasty .all of this says a lot about the person . think about what you wish to convey .

  • Nutmeg Smith

    Aceaka , the secret has always been to buy what suits you , is flattering & what fits well .

  • menstyle

    Exactly! Good point there
