i don't necessarily listen to all that a brand, blog, designer or whoever says, but if the majority says that etc. this year floral is hot then I take it in consideration. Don't get me wrong, you don't have to go like an idiot following whatever they say, but you have to have some guidelines. Some people are good in math, some in sports and some in fashion. That is the cool thing about the world, we cannot live without each other so when someone is into something (and is good in it) it's better to take advice than to go with green zipper ralph lauren vest (nhf). Not saying that I'm good at it, but surely you can check out blogs and instagram. GQ and other stuff are sponsored so I can take a crap on my t-shirt and put it into GQ, if I had money to pay for it.

You can check these guys on youtube:

alphamconsulting (cool suggestions, sometimes not my style but good overall)

chestersee (he is musician but he is almost always dressed perfectly)

Mensskincarewithross (this guy knows all about skin care, sometimes he gets a bit too deep into self-tanning and stuff, but lots of usefull daily skin-care advices)

mhrrasmus (he is a hairstylist, he's quite modern, but you don't need to go to extremes with getting a haircut like his, just a guideline)

sixpackshortcuts (this guy sells his tapes but if you can just try some of his workouts that he posted, you will be amazed)

no, I'm not gay, and noone sponsored me, those are just some guys from my youtube sub.

Get yourself a fashionable GF, she'll whip you in fashion shape in no time.
+1 because you beat me to it!
It doesn't always have to be your GF though. Even when I'm not shopping with my GF, I still like to bring girls that I'm friends with. I became friends with a lot of the Nordstrom girl sales reps too (they even get me deals up to 50% off). Girls with style know what looks good and fits right. Also, it never hurts to have a second opinion.

The only guy I really take fashion advice from is my tailor, he's A1.

I work with a lot of performers, fashionistas, and choreographers, I think I'm a pretty well dressed guy based off of the fact that people always compliment how I look or what I wear.
So with that said the best advice I could give you is, buy clothes YOU like, YOU feel comfortable in, and clothes that fit YOU.
If you feel good, you look good. Some styles fit different people better than others, but if you fallow those 3 things I'm sure you will look yourself in the mirror and think " man, I look good!"
Good luck!

Its my new entry in the field of Fashion and almost new and fresh in experience of the fashion and their designing with some real stuff but the creativity in me is since of my childhood, so that's why I think its not difficult for me to adjust in this field. If you have any suggestion or ideas for me please share and suggest to me.

OK my friend I personally love fashion, women really do take notice of a well dressed man-

Fashion is not hard, you need to find your own style. If you don't have one\are not sure. Just experiment and try on lots of different combos and "safe" bright colours. You can gain a lot of inspiration from the major brands and their seasonal campaigns such as Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Hackett etc to name a few. Now you don't necessarily need to buy these brands, just look at the "image\lifestyle" they are trying to sell.

I think the following are ESSENTIAL items and found the basis of a good wardrobe as these items are very flexible and can be mixed and match with ease-

-Navy Blue Blazer
-Beige to a medium brown Blazer
-White, Beige, Red, Green, Blue pants\chinos
-Plain white dress shirt
-Baby Blue dress shirt
-Solid plain coloured V necks (white, black, olive, navy, etc)
-Brown leather Loafers
-Black leather dress shoes
-Boat\Deck shoes (2 tone colour combo ones are nice)

Just with the above "basics" there are so many trendy, fashionable combos that you can create.

For example's sake, here is what I am wearing.

This look would have also worked well with RED pants, or even GREEN pants with a plain WHITE dress shirt. The combos are numerous.

I hope this gives you some idea and helps you, just experiment and you will find your own style.


Pierre Cardin Navy Blazer
Austen Brothers Dress Shirt (fine striped blue, red & white)
White Pants
Brown Ferragamo Loafers
Louis Vuitton Millionaire Sunglasses
Tommy Hilfiger brown leather with logo and anchor design belt.

Fashion and style are two different things.

Fashion is following a collection that a designer has created for you. Buy what is in the collection, or what is similar to it, and you will always have a good color and pattern combination. Sadly (or brilliantly), collections are designed to not work with each other through the years. So you will have to keep buying whole outfits to maintain harmony in your clothes, or look like a mismatched fool

Style is learning about taste and design. You can either obtain that by embracing timeless brands and make their design language your own. Or learn the theory, and design your own style.

Edit: I figured I might as well tell you how to get started with learning about design and taste. Look at classical art from around the 1900's, and analyze it too bits. What colors did the painters use, how much percentage of the canvas is covered by that color, what is the relation of dark and light? What kind of shapes are in the paintings, where do they make me look? Then you slowly start applying that knowledge to graphic design and photography, and finally you start looking at outfits. And you will see that the design rules that the classical painters used are the exact same rules that a great outfit follows.

You might wonder, why start around 1900. All possible natural colors where available to be used in design, and a lot of the man-made colors we have today weren't developed yet. When we are out in the natural world, we want to look natural and work with the world around us. The palette's from that time, simply show us how to make the most out of that limitation.

Like a couple of people have said... its all about your taste.

Personally, I have many styles - Work/Going out, Weekends/Sports... on a Saturday I could be in baggy jeans, white Nike's and a T-shirt all day but then designer jeans, tod's & a jacket for the evening night. Be yourself, and be appropriate! Find a few brands you like, then mix and match and make it yours

Well there's a lot of different opinions flying around here, I could give you a lengthy post on style but I'll save it for later. Bottom line: FIT IS EVERYTHING! Only buy clothes that fit, take a trip to Brooks Brothers, they'll get you set up nicely.

If you're a young guy, don't wear anything that says "Sperry," don't follow the 'prep' trend, and remember that fashion is just like anything else than can be associated with luxury--what is high-end to you is mediocre to others. If you think you dress well, attend a large-scale fashion event. That's the quickest way to realize that you rarely have the sense of fashion that you think you do. This is such a broad subject, but depending on how much money you're looking to spend, check out MR PORTER - The online retail destination for men's style for your closet 'essentials.' I often shop on MR. PORTER; the site also offers 'style help.' If there's any point that I'm getting at, it's to not be the average guy that's wearing the Polo/Sperry/Costa Del Mar combination. In fact, if you can, avoid logos altogether. Clean and professional never disappoints.

I see guys who are "fashionable" and I think "this person needs an ass kicking." Was getting coffee the other day this guy pulled up behind me I thought he was a she or maybe its the other way around.
