Men hate to admit it, but clothes actually matter sometimes. In the most perfect of worlds, men or women would be judged by who they were and not by who or what they wore. Unfortunately, society doesn't work that way.
Fashion blunders don't help matters either. How you choose to dress reflects how one feels about certain things throughout the day – job, attitude, charisma and so on. Appearances actually matter! It is best to remember that you don't have to look the most fashionable, just avoid the mistakes listed below and you should have no problem fitting into any crowd.
Fashion Mistakes Men Make- This article features a list of the tops fashion designers and their opinions on how to avoid making critical fashion mistakes.
Tip #1- Knots and collars aren't created equal no matter what you may think. Some are wide and some are narrow, while others are in between. Make sure you tie matches the collar you are wearing.
Tip #2- You will look silly if your jacket and shirt aren't the same length. When choosing a shirt, make sure it doesn't go a half-inch past your wrist. With jackets, the sleeves should never go past your wrist.
Tip #3- Wearing a rubber sole shoe is something that you probably would have done as a kid. Leather soles are definitely a better way to go.
