------- This thread originally started out with me asking OT a question about dressing classy, but it's basically turned into the style thread so the original post isn't really relevant anymore. Enjoy the nice read though!

I've been looking to change my look for a while and was wondering what tips OT could give me! Long time lurker and reader :D

But anyway, what do you all think? What looks classy, what doesn't etc. I've been reading (or trying to read other sites) and I'm still working to really define what's classy. So OT, help me out!

(and if this is the wrong spot, please move it!)


Here is the man you're looking for.

True story.

My wardrobe consists of three of these shirts.

I wear one as a shirt, one as a pair of pants, and wrap the last one about my head for a hat.

Hah I do enjoy wearing my suit and all, but just in general classier. Like I wear some button up shirts with an under shirt and jeans and all. That kind of stuff

Gotta roll up my sleeves here ...

Okay, so, first, you gotta decide what exactly defines you. What kind of a person are you? What happens in your daily life? Are you running around a lot with friends? Do you prefer to sit back and relax? Are you a workaholic?

In my case, I love suits, but I also do a lot of stupid stuff with my friends that ends up with us running away from something. So it's common for me to deconstruct suits. Now, you're saying classy, so I think you're looking at similar things to me. Let's start with suits:

If you're tall and thin, you want lighter, solid suits. Jet black always looks good, though. No pleats on the pants. Pinstripes are okay, but it's better if they're fairly wide. Narrow (2.5 inches is the basic) ties are highly in style now. I prefer solid, but it's not a huge deal. If you're short and stout, pretty much reverse all of that. If you're somewhere in the middle, congrats, you get the best of both worlds! Just remember: Wool for the suit (ALWAYS), silk for the tie. Shirt's probably gonna be cotton.

Oh, and undershirts: If you plan on being fully suited up all day, wear a crew neck. If you intend to unbutton only the top button, wear a v-neck. If you might be unbuttoning a lot, wear an A-shirt (tank top). Your undershirt should roughly be the same color as your shirt (although black with dark colors and white with light is fine). Unless you intend to make a bit of a fashion statement, in which case match the color to whatever else you're wearing - or just go opposite.

I have to continue this later. But that's pretty good for a suit. Just remember this: Make sure all your clothes fit. Fit is very important. They should just barely skim your skin.

Okay, I'm back. I'll just throw some ideas out there, my personal favorite outfits.

Blazer/Sportcoat/Suit jacket, dark wash jeans, plain colored t-shirt, nice black shoes (oxfords or loafers), black belt. Or you can go the other way and do bright white what would normally be black. Could be cool.
White dress shirt, black dress pants, black oxfords, black dress belt, black pocket square, black fedora, black suspenders. Having a black shirt with a bright red undershirt and bright red suspenders is my nighttime version of this.
Jeans, dress vest, narrow tie, dress shirt, shoes, blah blah blah. This is becoming more common, probably moreso in fashion-conscious places, but it still looks good.

Just remember to take a basic design, something classic, and make it your own through subtle (or sometimes, if you're in that mind frame sometime, bright and glaring) alterations.

Make good friends with a tailor, and possibly the owner of a small, respected shoe store. And make friends with the owners of interesting, exotic restaurants and whatnot - that's more lifestyle related, though. Learn how to tie a tie perfectly your favorite way, and experiment with a couple of other knots. Spend time on your hair. Spend even more time cleaning your clothes - SHOES ESPECIALLY. One of the first things women will notice about a guy they don't even know is his shoes, and what condition they're in. Gay guys probably do this too, if you swing that way, but I wouldn't know.

That's a good enough blueprint. Feel free to ask me about specific questions. Can't say I know a lot about cologne (yet), though. I'm learning.

Wool for the suit (ALWAYS)

What about linen?

Anyways, steer clear from graphic tees and "eroded" clothing if you're going for classy. Start reading up on fashion blogs (Fashionbeans, the Sartorialist) for trends. Prioritize organic fabrics as opposed to synthetic ones, like poylester. Tailored clothing are hard to pull off if you're too young. Be sure not to look like you're trying to be something you're not.

Linen isn't good for more than a plaything, in my opinion. I have a linen blazer, and it bugs the hell out of me. I have to have it pressed if I plan on wearing it more than a couple of times in a week, since it wrinkles like a [bleep]. But it is very light and fun, and gets a lot of attention, so its got its ups and downs. Cotton's alright, but it fades over time. Flannel's just weird looking for something like a suit. Wool's a happy medium.

I disagree that tailored clothes are hard to pull off. Well, if you're very young and still growing, yes, it's rough, but tailoring your nicer clothes should be on every man's to-do list. The sizes of dress shirts (that aren't overpriced) fit very few men straight off, particularly in the waist. At least, here in America. Doubt it's that different in Canada, but I don't know.

I mean tailored clothing as in suits, leather lace-ups, trousers, dress shirts, etc. Not clothing brought to a tailor so that he makes it fit right.

Oh, okay. Yeah, a young fellow that dresses like his grandfather might've is gonna get a lot of attention. But I'm an attention [bleep], and I like it, so it really just encourages me. Not for the meek.

And that's why I think wearing a blazer, or buttoning your shirt all the way up, or wearing lace-ups, etc. is a better idea than wearing a full suit. It looks classy but not completely incongruous.

Well for starters, don't wear baggy jeans. Don't be a [bleep] and go for skinny jeans either, you want slim cut jeans that aren't tight on your skin. Also don't wear suit pants or something like that, because to me that seems more like you're trying too hard to look classy, than just being classy, if that makes sense.

For shoes, i'm not really sure as i'm from England and I don't know if this trend is in the states yet, but plimsoles are pretty casual but don't look sloppy or too casual.
(Example - http://s7v1.scene7.c...0068049?product$ )

For your top, you could wear a white/black crew neck t-shirt with a nice jumper, or some kinda tee that compliments a cardigan or something?
( http://www.frenchtru...y-lambwool1.jpg or http://products.tedb...54040487093.jpg )

Basically some people would say the 'pretty boy' look, but it's also pretty smart/classy.
Maybe not what you're looking for, but worth a try. :)

You want to wear a button-up shirt under your jumpers, it looks better.
Speaking of attention lent, I just wore dress shoes on an informal occasion for the first time (friend's gig at a small bar). Works like a charm.
