The Pocket Square

There’s nothing like a crisp fitted suit on a bro that knows how to bring it. However, what makes or break the suit to me is the little details that you add to it like patterns, the tie, and a pocket square. If you’re not flossing the pocket square when you go out you might as well have just gone out in sweat pants.

When wearing a pocket square I don’t like to go with a matching tie, shirt, and pocket square combo. That shit is amateur hour. I like the square to add a little pop of color that contrasts with the other colors I’m wearing.

I see a lot of guys making the mistake to button your bottom button on a jacket. This button was designed to never be buttoned… unless you’re JFK.

Why you never button the bottom button from AskAndy

Why do men never button the bottom button of your suit, sports jacket, vest or Cardigan sweater?

King Edward VII, “Bertie”, son of Victoria (1841 – 1910, King 1901 – 1910) was so heavy that he could not get the bottom button fastened on his vest or to be more historically kind, maybe he just forgot. His subjects taking it as a fashion statement followed his lead and today most men’s suits, sports jackets or vests are not designed to button the bottom button.

The tradition of not buttoning the bottom button may have also come from the early waistcoats, which were very long. It may have been out of necessity of being able to walk that the bottom buttons were left undone.

Now you know to never make this brostake again.

Suit Up

This is how you wear a suit.

Swagger

I really like when guys like this one are able to pull off this roguish look. He’s got this vibe where if you fuck with him he’ll pistol whip you. Some call it high/low or danger and play. It’s a great contrast that you should go for when wearing a suit out and about.
