Summer Wedding Part III
Few things are as beautiful as a crisp white shirt. Variety in cloths and collars allow for an equal variety of looks.
Without getting too poetic here, I’ll just tell you that a white or powder blue shirt is similar to what you women consider the “little black dress.” It’s that simple. Basics are basics because they are building blocks. It sounds ridiculous that I’m here peddling something so obvious, but trust me, I’ve seen it too many times…you know that comment “I just want it to look unique.” Well he’s not the one getting married, nor are you so stay in the background where you belong. Hell, if he wants to wear a black shirt, go ahead, look like a cryptkeep.
Cool, so what to choke him with? A tie of course. You wouldn’t even realize it, but there are ties for business, less casual affairs (the kind found in hotel rooms) and wedding ties. The wedding variety are usually tonal and very subdued without looking too boring or easy going. I seldom recommend a solid number, but in this case it works well. That powder blue shirt, with a dark solid blue tie works nicely against the charcoal suit I know you bought. HERE (click me) is a quick go to reference guide. Notice the use of the same suit and shirt throughout; the only thing changing is the neck wear.
For those wondering what in the hell the above picture is doing here…well, the sheer bad ass go f*ck yourself sprezzatura these triplets are exuding is noteworthy.
Next up, how to actually pack your suitcase. I mean how to pack his suitcase. Men don’t pack suitcases, we just hop on and off planes.
Sempre con stile,
