    Not that expensive… Besides, brothas can spend $200 gym shoes and look like Bums, they can afford a nice suit.
    So sorry Khalid.. That excuse is tired Bruh…

    That’s true, while we may find things such as those huge knots in the neckties nice looking to us the business world has a different psychology and how you are viewed within that doesn’t change based on personal taste. Dark blue suits are for the most part king and it’s been that way since suits it seems. lol

    Well Firstly, Bruh. I ain’t never paid $200 for a pair of anything in my life, so you cant throw me in that generalization. And secondly, where would you buy these tailored suits for only $200? The Blackmarket Emporium and warehouse? You make it sound like a pair of J’s and an Armani is an even monetary trade off.

    Of course, US styled suits differ greatly from the UK styled suits, that then differ from Italian styled suits. It’s always best to find a good tailor and get some recommendations as to what style will suit your body best. Personally I stay away from the US styled boxy suits, and never thought I had the body to pull off an Italian slim cut. Until my tailor convinced me otherwise. So glad I trusted him, best suit I have in my wardrobe.
    My rule of thumb is that a great tailor knows best!

    Style is a good thing for a man to know and learn, it says i’m a gentleman, well at lease by my look anyway.

    Antonio, this is great stuff. I’m disappointed these things aren’t taught in school or somebody, like myself, hasn’t created a teaching format for this. Swag is for boys….style is for men and this will bring forth style. I had a scholarship to Parsons back in the 70′s….my folks didn’t want that for me…but I retained the foundation. I’m writing a book on being a gentleman and lady….get back to me if you have time…..gjulimusic@gmail.com….thanks again

    Hi. I was wondering if I can use the inforgraphic in a dress etiquette manual I am making for my employer. I also want to use some other inforgraphics you have on your blog. I can provide you with a list of all the imfographics we want to use. We will not be altering the infographics in any way and will leave your branding as it is.

    Sure. Just make sure to reference us. Wish you the best!
