Men’s Fashion Faux Pas (Men’s Fashion Don’ts)

Every man wants to be respected, celebrated, honoured and admired when he steps outside of his home. Many a times ones dressing have a lot to with this. No one wants to be laughed at/looked at strangely when walking on the street or whenever he steps out of his car or is in the mall. It is always great to be complimented by people you don’t even know. Remember the way you dress is the way you will be addressed. Dress like a king and you will be addressed like a king. However, there are some ways certain men dress that it is a big ‘’NO’’ in the fashion world and in dressing as a whole.

P.S- This is what Dress, Look And Feel Like A King means   

Below are some of the list of men’s fashion faux pas:
     1)     Stripped shirts on stripped trousers
     2)     Pattern shirts on pattern trousers
     3)     Pattern shirts on stripped trousers
     4)     Stripped shirt on pattern trousers
     5)     Stripped suit on stripped shirt and stripped tie

     6)     Super skinny jeans
     7)     Deep plunging neck (V-neck) tops/t-shirts
     8)     Wearing too many clothes at once
     9)     Ill fitted clothes i.e. clothes that are extraordinarily tight/fitted
   10)     Sneakers on suits
   11)    Sneakers on traditional attire
   12)    Slippers on suits

   14)    Slippers on corporate wears
   15)    Undersized t-shirts/shirts
   16)    Wearing socks on sandals
   17) Wearing too much cologne or not wearing at all. 

Men’s Fashion Do’s to the above:

  1. Great post, to add a little: when knottin your tie it is most appropriate for the tip of the tie to be just (or almost) touching the top of the belt when done. Ties should not be short and far away from the belt on one's waist.
    Laced shoes should not be worn with native attires.
    Wear you appropriate size of suit.
    Those are the ones that came to mind now. Maybe I'll add as more come to mind.
