There comes a time in many of our lives where we have to step outside of our comfort zones and deal with the (mostly) inevitable rite of passage of formal suit wear. For some of us our first foray into formal attire is church events or weddings, for others (like me) it was high school prom or cultural balls. In any event, sometimes it’s hard to know exactly what to wear.
In fact, this is something that women fuss with guys over at different periods in our lives, but it’s also something that women relish in. A nice suit is akin to women’s lingerie as they say.
Attraction aside, the women in our lives like it when we dress to fit the occasion and wearing a nice blazer or suit always makes me feel a little extra smooth. It still makes me feel like a mature adult even if they are days in which that doesn’t seem all that applicable (Saturday nights, anyone?).
For the partners, moms and significant others out there, I’ve come across this handy guide from the folks at The Black Tux which can help. This infographic will help your guy find the right threads for whatever occasion is on your his agenda. And as you start to make prom preparations in the coming months, The Black Tux has a selection of prom suits and rentals for you to choose from too! I wish this was around when I was in high school as it would have made the search for the perfect suit a lot more convenient.
I’m not a fashionisto but I do appreciate a well put together outfit. To take your style to the next level I think it’s all about the details. Find a unique tie bar, lapel pin, or pocket square to accentuate your personality. At events it’s these little details that help start conversations and garner a little extra attention. They can be great icebreakers!
