Suit Maintenance and Travel

Posted by NYMSuits on 4/14/2016 to Men's Fashion Tips
While thorough dry cleaning should be practiced sparingly, keeping your suit in good condition does involve some daily maintenance.

As most suits are made from wool, they easily gather debris – whether loose hair, dandruff, dust or other materials – and if not removed, these particles can cause damage to the fabric over time.

A Charcoal Gray Suit Equals Versatility – First Suit

Posted by NYMSuits on 3/20/2016 to Men's Fashion Tips
When purchasing your very first suit, it’s either going to be the only one you wear to work until you’re able to afford another, or the only one you ever own, period. So you want something classic and versatile. If your only suit has a distinct pattern, and you wear it semi-regularly around the same people, they’re going to remember, and realize you’re wearing the same suit over and over. If the suit is simple and solid, however, they’ll likely not notice.

How Should A Dress Shirt Fit?

Posted by NYMSuits on 3/19/2016 to Men's Fashion Tips
Most men wear dress shirts that do not fit them properly. The problem is that readymade garments are made to fit many; as a result, they fit no one perfectly. We all compromise somewhere if a shirt fits us in the neck it fails us in the sleeve length; if it fits well in the sleeves, it billows out around the stomach. So the fit I’ll describe here is generally only achievable on a custom shirt or one that’s close to fitting and then tailored by a skilled hand.

Spring Suits for Men

Posted by NYMSuits on 3/18/2016 to Men's Fashion Tips
Winter’s heavy wool suits feel about as welcome as monogamy on Mad Men as the temperature rises. Time to move them to the back of your closet. Make room for a variety of a lighter weights that are also easy on your wallet. Thanks to trim cuts and well-made fabrics—some coming from the same factories as high-end designer labels—quality suits have entered the attainable realm.

Matching your Ties with your Dress Shirts

Posted by NYM Suits on 2/16/2016 to Men's Fashion Tips
The dress shirt is the first garment you should ensure matches your tie; next to the jacket, it is the most important clothing accessory in determining what tie color and pattern you can wear. However, unlike the jacket which you may peel off by lunchtime — your shirt stays on all day. Without a jacket, the dress shirt is the only surface upon which the tie sits, and if there is a color clash it will be impossible to hide. So get it right!

Matching your Suits with Your Ties

Posted by NYM Suits on 2/16/2016 to Men's Fashion Tips
Dark solid colored suits, especially grey and navy blue, go well with most tie color combinations by default. They are the easiest to match as most tie makers assume their wares will be worn with one; if you have already matched the tie to the shirt, either a grey or navy suit will more often then not complement your ensemble.

Posted by NYM Suits on 2/16/2016 to Men's Fashion Tips
When it comes to dressing for more upscale events, women have far more style decisions to make than men; we know we’ll be donning some version of a dress shirt and suit. But when it comes to adding the finishing touch — the tie — some men feel confused as to how to choose a tie that will complement the other elements in their ensemble. The biggest mistake I see men make when trying to match their neckwear to their clothing is that they have bought the wrong tie for the clothing in their wardrobe.

Accessories are the Key to Wearing a Seersucker Suit

Posted by NYMSuits on 1/9/2016 to Men's Fashion Tips
More than with wearing an ordinary suit, accessories are truly key in pulling off a seersucker. Choosing the right ones can really pull it together; overloading on the wrong ones can turn your get-up into a costume. For example, if you pair your seersucker suit with a striped bow tie, red suspenders, white shoes, and a straw boater, it’ll look like you just stepped off the set of a period piece. Instead, choose just one very traditional accessory, and make the others more classic:

The sports jacket is one of the best, most versatile items a man can have in his wardrobe. The benefits of this piece of clothing are myriad.

And third, it affords you an opportunity to be a gentleman; should a lady friend become cold, you can remove your jacket and lend her its warmth.

The Art and Style of the Men’s Vest

Posted by NYM Suits on 1/8/2016 to Men's Fashion Tips
The vest is a classic piece of menswear that ought to be brought back in to fashion. Regrettably, the vest seems to have been demoted from its position as an essential article in the well-dressed man's wardrobe to the garment that bistro waiters use to hold their pen and check pad (not that I have anything against bistros or their wait staff, it just seems to be the main place that I see vests these days). This is regrettable because there are many advantages to wearing a vest. Among them:
