Style overhaul
Recently I've joined a few clothing and style-related forums in an effort to 'spruce myself up'.

At first I started to take notice of what other guys at work were wearing, however 90% of them dress really bad, so there was nobody that stood out as having any sort of sense other than 'just wear whatever suit and shirt is the cupboard' every day.

Given I wear a suit 5 days per week I started to look into area's of fashion related to business attire.

I was blown away when I realized that there are so many educated people when it comes to clothes, fashion, style and so forth. The amount of details some people go when describing one suit VS another blew me away.

I'm learning all the different types of suits and how it's worn and what the different types of cuts and fabrics are.

So I've decided to have my first made to measure suit commissioned as buying off the rack always means I have to have the suit altered to fit anyway, so I might as well get a suit that fits my body shape perfectly. P. Johnson Tailor's has received nothing but terrific feedback, so I've booked in some time to get it made (http://pjohnson.com.au/)

Now I've stared looking at shoes......far out! I thought suits were broad, shoes is who other galaxy.

Allen Edmonds was a name that seemed to be most popular from a mid-range price position (I wasn't about to spend a $1000's for a pair of shoes), so I ordered a pair online (http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline...40000000001_-1 - if anyone cares).

Anyway, I'd be happy to hear from other people who have given their style an overhaul and would be happy to hear how it went, different things you tried etc.

I went shopping for work pants today. I think my main criteria was finding a pair with convenient pockets for my mobile and my 2-way

I redid my entire work wardrobe at the start of this year. Microfiber shirts + pants = no ironing.

Microfiber is nice from that POV but I found it a bit sweaty and stinky... prefer cotton shirts and wool trousers personally for business attire, not that I wear it these days.

Hrmmmmm. I always figured it was a combination of going with black shirts and switching to crystal/aluminium free deodorant was what did it.

Was thinking of switching back to regular off the shelf deodorant and seeing how it was in winter but you reckon ditch the shirts?

My BO on the days at home I CBF going out has improved though

^ I think it sounds like he is trying to avoid aluminium, that driclor has %20...which can break down with sweat to form hcl :/ Y'oud have to be a proper sweaty bastard to need that shiz.
Back on topic maybe once or twice a year I go and buy flash new clothes, and then wear them out and repeat process! Maybe it would be better to buy more clothes and then wear them less so each individual garment looks newer for longer
Check it ****s.

^^ Don't do it, you'll still pick and wear your favourites out more often and then six months later throw out the rest because you didn't wear them anywhere near as much as you thought you would.

I wore microfiber for a while in highschool and it makes you sweat heinously when it's hot. Looking back, it's funny. No one should wear microfiber to work as an adult, it screams "at Lowes". And lazy ****.

I manage to get away without ironing most of my shirts when just going out, can even usually at work. Light cotton and linen ones are good for that. I've found the more I spend on a shirt the less I have to iron it so all of mine are between $100-200. Avoid those starchy shirts which crease up and you save yourself so much ironing pain.

My choice these days extends to which brand of navy cargos I buy and whether I want to wear shorts or longs, so like I said about the most thought I put into it is which brand has the best selection of pockets for all my shit.

Try showering at night (only a quick shower) and scrub at aluminum out, then don't put any on over night.

Also how much water do you drink constantly throughout the day?

Last position tried to get us in company logo shirts, at first I was rebellious then I realised, wearing their shirt instead of my $120 one was a little smarter.

Yeah you save a fuckload of money if you get uniforms or have a standard work dress code that doesn't involve a lot of choice.

Microfiber reminds me of my sleazy Indian landlord from my student days. After a hot day at work it kinda smells like him too.

Actually now you mention it, it probably reeks of "IT GUY!!!!" as well

This just goes to show I shouldn't be allowed to shop for clothes on my own.

Thanks for the shoe advise, will def check em out.

I've heard lots of awesome feedback about P Johnson's work, I'm actually really looking forward to having a nice suit that fits me perfectly. (is that a sign I'm getting old?)

It's called being a tradie, dickhead. We get free uniforms, it's great. Nice thick jackets, expensive work boots and even beanies for when it's cold.

Try and stick with natural fibres. I always end up smelling any sort of blend but the 100% cotton shirts I could do a marathon in and I'd still smell great. I get all mine custom made since they fit a lot better, plus I need longer sleeves than off the rack. Anywhere between $125 and $170 dollars per shirt, but worth every cent.
My next batch will be from PJohnson, I've also been meaning to check them out.

Suits, wool super 120s preferred. Anything with a higher thread count won't be durable enough for a regular work suit so save it for the expensive black/dark navy formal/semi-formal suit. Weddings, important meetings, interviews etc.
Blends can work okayish with the pants but the jackets always suck so I avoid them.

Get a steamer if you don't want to iron. Does a great job on shirts.

Regarding deodorants, I've tried all of the spray on ones and they are all rubbish. Every single one of them. I use a roll on from the body shop now and holy shit balls, greatest thing ever created. Grab a bottle and try it, it is fucking mentally effective and lasts forever.

From the ingredients list. Aluminum Chlorohydrate (Anti Perspirant Active)

No chance. That's just me though, I'm doing all natural stuff and taking care of myself this year (getting blind drunk on people's birthdays excluded.)

My bad, mine is called "Activist" but I think it's the same thing, just branded differently in the UK.
I've had no issues with staining under the arms with this one, so that's been my personal experience.

All a man needs to wear casually, esp to impress the ladies a little more than most, are some fitted chinos (cotton pants, rather than jeans which every bloke gets around in) and a plain tshirt (plain/pattern not picture and esp not company Logo like a walking billboard) or shirt with some Vans or something similar or leather shoes depending on the occasion. Can't go wrong. Although I don't do the leather shoes with tshirt, only with a shirt, but lots of dudes do that.

Shorts and boardies should be above the knees, even if you have massive legs you can find a pair that'll suit.

His offsider in Melbourne, Tom, is a legend. A few mates have their suits as well, you can't go wrong for the price.

Everyone should have one awesome suit imo.

I appreciate the look of a quality suit but I'd never wear it... I haven't worn a suit in 2 years, I honestly couldn't justify buying a new one based on that.

Tradies that don't drag their knuckles on the ground are pretty rare, actually. My housemate is one of those rare few tradies.

No grown man should ever wear an un-ironed shirt to work.

And if you're wearing anything that's made of microfibre you just shoot yourself.

the occasion. Can't go wrong. Although I don't do the leather shoes with tshirt, only with a shirt, but lots of dudes do that.

Shorts and boardies should be above the knees, even if you have massive legs you can find a pair that'll suit.

Where to buy said fitted chinos? I need an alternative to jeans that's a bit dressier than cargoes.

My workmates decided it would be fun to shock me with the insulation resistance tester on 1000v DC, while I was joining some cables. Scared the shit out of me and gave me a bit of buzz on the fingers.
