New on Return of Kings: How To Dress Well

I have a new article on Return of Kings, dealing with fashion. More specifically, the basics of how you can dress well:

Just so we get this out of the way, I am absolutely not going to tell you to “peacock” or “pick an accessory that carries your outfit” or “wear a beaver cock around your neck”, or any of that Mystery Method crap that most intelligent people have realized is a scam.

There are no “ONE SIMPLE TRICK”s in life, and dressing well is no exception. Instead, what I’m going to do is give you a broad framework of how you can choose your own accoutrements to dress well. And yes, “choosing your own” is very important:

The key is to figure out what colors, patterns, and fits are best for YOU. In the long run, this will save you money, since well fitting clothes will never stop fitting you (unless your body drastically changes, which it shouldn’t if you read my other articles on fitness and nutrition).

A man’s style is influenced by three things:

1. His physical person
2. Color and fabric matching and contrasting
3. His personal preferences, the setting he’s going to, etc.

To go into more detail…

Nothing is more important in dress than having the clothes be cut right, and fit properly. You can have the most expensive designer clothes in the world, but if it’s cut too big you’ll look like a child wearing his daddy’s clothes, and if they’re too small you’ll look like a walking package of hot dogs.

Proper fit is defined as clothes that are comfortable but not loose and baggy. Using the men’s suit as the starting point of men’s style, we see that the goal for all men and body types is to create a streamlined silhouette from head to toe, enhancing the masculine traits (namely chest and shoulders) to a proportional extent, while minimizing the belly and legs—again to a proportional extent.
