I have several men clients and when I first work with them I ask how they really feel about their look. Their answer typically is “mostly frumpy and I lack style.” Then I ask them how they’d like to look and the answer is almost always the same, “sharp and classy.” No matter what, everyone wants COMFORT!
I’d have to say when guys shop with me they are fairly open to trying new things and they are very candid which I love. Some say, “no can do on that color” or “I’d never be caught dead in that print.” Okay by me! However, some guys have decided that one look is ok and comfortable for them and then they tend to buy 10 shirts of different colors (in the same style) and will wear them for the next 3 years if not longer.
Guys! I want you to view the pictures below and see how shirts can be both be comfortable and classy. One style makes you look frumpier, shorter and wider (boxier) while the other makes you look classier, taller and thinner. I help create illusions so in once sense, yes, I’m a magician. Again, if your style is the boxier type of shirt, I’ll accept it but I always will ask that you be open to try on different styles. For instance the Perry Ellis and Boss brands are much more of a European slim fitting shirt and the Faconnable and Michael Kors are a slim look but can be worn easier by a greater degree of men of all shapes. My advice, be open to trying several brands since they look differently and can give you a boxy, frumpy shape or a classy, slimming, taller look and you don’t have to tuck either of them in if you’re heading for a casual evening out. Best of all they both can be comfortable!
