 MENS STYLING TO IMPRESS

I love styling men, I grew up in an all male family I have no sisters, and I have always bought clothes for them and all the men in my life! Long before I became a Personal Stylist.

Men should wear great colours that suit them, cool designs and expensive shoes. Brands I like are Etro shirts, Dunhill has great shirts and coloured jumpers very good quality, Paul Smith does nice shirts, Cheeky Monkeys, Diesel, Lindeberg do great jeans.  

Cheap shoes will drive women away trust me. The number of conversations women have about tasteless shoes would be a revelation to men. Several of my friends have rejected advances because of shoes!

Likewise ill matched colours such as grey jumpers with brown trousers will be noted, commented upon and score 0 points. Match the colour of your tie to your shirt yellow does not go with pink, dots do not work with stripes. If you need help hire a personal shopper or personal stylist. Your looks will improve and as people start to notice you so will your confidence.

 

Cashmere jumpers are lovely there are great colours out there for men, Dunhill, Aquascutum, with their new design team, Armani and Ralph Lauren all make fantastic designs. They are seriously nice to wear and soft to the touch- cuddly.

 

Mens styling for very tall men is harder, there are many men out there over 6’4”, it has taken me ages to source clothes for them. High and Mighty is a good source but the suit quality and selection for slim men is poor. I suggest their Ralph Lauren range and to go elsewhere for bespoke tailoring for suits. The Italian suit maker Sartoria is great and reasonably priced. Segun Adelaja has clothes to dream about. Very elegant and sophisticated classic with a twist.  Timothy Everest, does a range at Marks and Spencers.

 

Shoes such as loafers try Fins for great colours in soft suede. For work shoes Church’s and Prada make nice shoes that if you are typical of the men I know will last for 10 years or more. Cost per wear becomes negligible. Womens shoes cost far more and last about 6 months!   

 

Ties again should be expensive women notice and will comment on polyester ties go for silk and if your budget is tight have less of them. Buy Hermes,  Salvatore Ferragamo, to instantly upgrade your look under £100.

 

Accessories for men buy what you love and aim to keep for many years the watch you choose says everything about your style. Cufflinks should be gold, if price is an issue buy one pair. The Italians and French always have fabulous accessories to impress do the same. Ingle and Rhodes bespoke the  only ethical jewellers in London do a great range of cufflinks.

 

Man bags always strike me as suspect, especially if they have a twee little strap, leave hand bags to women is my advice, computer bags and brief cases are fine.

 

Hats are fun, to be noticed wear a hat! They look seriously nice and are very cool as well a panama in the sun looks great. They also keep your head warm as well as attracting women like flies. Forget LYNX which purports to attract every woman on the beach, purleese- just wear a hat!

  5. Hi Gabrielle,

    Hope you can help.
    I’m getting married and am looking for a suit to make sure I don’t show up my woman on the day. Would like to get a classic, stylish two button suit (blue or grey), something off the peg or made to measure (my budget is about £700 so bespoke is out of the question I guess). Can you recommend anyone? One of your posts mentioned Segun Adelaja, would he fit the bill and is there anyone else you can recommend? I’m 5’11 and 88kg if that helps to recommend designers. Thanks!
