2. It's your friends wedding, not yours. Your day will come so don't try to be in the spotlight. Be classy but sophisticated.

3. No pleated pants. Really. I see a lot of Americans still wearing pleated pants. Don't do it. They make you look like you've borrowed Yao's pants.

4. A lower rise is a better look, wear your pants on the hips, not on your bellybutton.

5. No cuffing on your pants. Really. Don't, it's 2012.

6. Make sure your top fits. It might feel a bit too small, but that's supposed to feel a bit tight. Just make sure it doesnt wrinkle at the shoulders.

7. Get tailored or get a tailored look. It's a good look. Americans like to add one size to everything they buy. Don't.

8. Don't wear sneakers. It's not funny.

9. 3 inches width is the way to go for your tie.

10. Match your socks with your suit. You can look sharp untill a sock shows and it'll be all for naugth. Match your belt with your shoes. And match your shoes with good taste.

11. It's summer. Some says it's a rule you always wear an undershirt. Don't. You'll sweat more and it shows just as much. If you sweat much normally, try Nu Skin Antiperspirant instead of Deodorant and dont drink coffee prior to the wedding.

12. Wear your shirt as you do your suit: fitted, and if possible, tailored.

13. Buy a 2 button suit.

14. Get a haircut, get a slight tan and shave the evening prior to the wedding. You'll look as sharp as possible in a good suit, but you need to fix yourself as well.

15.get cufflings (of course a shirt that needs cufflings)

16. black shoes

Thoughts?

I charge $10 per tip. I dress pretty well now...especially since I can afford it.

Plus, I wouldn't really keep up with fashion. Wear something that's classic...something that would've looked good 50 years ago or will still look good 50 years from now.

It definitely helps. Better quality suits tend to cost a little more...same with jeans where some have better quality denim (will give more wears).

Anyways, I saw a pic where you were wearing a tie with a goofy looking shirt...come on bro.

A well-tailored suit definitely isn't cheap tho.

It definitely does help, I won't disagree with that at all. Especially in terms of suits. Outside of formal wear, eh....some of the best dressed people I know alter things they get from the thrift store and make it work.
