10 Style MISTAKES You Should AVOID | Don't Make These Rookie Style Errors

When it comes to improving your style, most advice requires you to buy something new or spend money on clothing alterations. You could call this additive advice. Buy those. Wear this. Spend more money of that. Even if it's great advice, sometimes you just don't have the time or money to implement it. But what if there were ways to improve your style by avoiding certain mistakes (i.e. subtracting certain garments or behaviors)? Rather than buying a new piece of clothing, what if you simply avoided certain combinations? Well, I have good news for you. There are ways to improve your style with minimal investment, and they're very easy to follow right now. Here are 10 style mistakes that every man should try to avoid. #modestman #notsponsored — BEST YOUTUBE MUSIC → https://goo.gl/UhwtMb — SHOP THE VIDEO ▪ Crew neck (similar) → http://fave.co/2tjFx18 ▪ White undershirt → http://fave.co/2tjg9s9 — RELATED ARTICLES ▪ The Best No Show Socks for Men → http://mdst.mn/2oYgSKf ▪ 10 Rookie Style Errors → http://mdst.mn/2oQfhpA — RELATED VIDEOS ▪ Buying a Leather Bag? → https://youtu.be/uRLqT6gddn0 ▪ How to Match Belt With Shoes → https://youtu.be/wxa4Ye01BsQ ▪ How to Keep Your Shirt Tucked In → https://youtu.be/1jRGcz2NTGc ▪ Bold vs. Boring Socks → https://youtu.be/9kdDPXbmuUo ▪ 10 Casual Summer Outfit Ideas → https://youtu.be/DsBnBhSk1Wk ▪ Perfect Casual Watch Under $300 → https://youtu.be/cP76bL_hys8 — MY GEAR ▪ Canon T6i → http://geni.us/4kSX ▪ Laptop → http://fave.co/2hgKaDF ▪ Laptop stand → http://fave.co/2vQwBj3 ▪ Lens #1 (50mm) → http://geni.us/OiE9 ▪ Lens #2 (10-18mm) → http://geni.us/qgGQckE ▪ Lens #3 (24mm) → http://geni.us/x61A ▪ Lav mic → http://geni.us/ZBlvGh ▪ Desk mic → http://geni.us/wCdS7t2 — YOUTUBE MUSIC → https://goo.gl/UhwtMb — STYLE GUIDES ▪ Free E-Books → http://mdst.mn/guide-pack ▪ Premium Guide → http://mdst.mn/tmmsg — FOLLOW ME ▪ Podcast → http://fave.co/2vej94M ▪ Instagram → https://www.instagram.com/modestmanstyle/ ▪ Twitter → https://twitter.com/modestmanstyle ▪ Facebook → https://www.facebook.com/modestmanblog/ ▪ Private Group → https://www.facebook.com/groups/modestmen — Contains affiliate links // Stay stylish!

10 Menswear Gimmicks You Don't Need

Check out these gimmicks you need to stay away from! https://gentl.mn/menswear-gimmicks SHOP THE VIDEO: 1. Knit Tie in Chartreuse Green Silk - https://gentl.mn/2wg8aeC 2.

There has been some great innovation in terms of fabric technologies and we embrace that and think it's a good thing. At the same time, there are lots of gimmicks out there that just cost a lot of money and they're more like a band-aid, not really fixing a problem. 1. Pouch style underwear. You may have heard of Saxx underwear that comes with mesh sides or sheath that has an entire pouch and it's underwear that's meant to keep you more comfortable and less sticky down there. We actually tried the pouch underwear and we had one pair with a pouch and we cut out the pouch on the other pair simply to try it out and figure it out if there was a huge difference. In my experience, there really isn't. 2. Sock suspenders. Don't let anyone tell you that sock suspenders are actually fixing a problem. If you have proper over the calf socks in the first place, there is ZERO need for sock suspenders. 3. Sticky tape that you glue onto your skin and the socks so you don't see it unlike the sock suspenders unless you take off the socks then you have some sticky tape there that you need to rip off along with the hairs and that must be extremely uncomfortable. 4. Shirt collar products. Now the problem many men have is that the tip of the shirt collar points up or it curls at the very end and so there are multiple solutions on the market to fix that. It ranges from glue products that supposedly don't leave any residue behind and includes products with magnets and most of them don't work. 5. Shirts stays. Now those are little devices that are similar to suspenders that you clip at the bottom tail of your shirt and on the top part of your sock so they're connected. Yes, they do the job, they keep your shirt tucked in, and they keep your socks up, but it's extremely uncomfortable to wear. 6. Sleeve garters. The sleeve garter would help you to pull up that shirt sleeve so it wouldn't hang down and get soiled. Sometimes as you watch old movies or photos, you can see men wearing them when they have their jackets removed. 7. Tie holders. If you have ties that are made of printed silk and very slim, they are likely to slip down more on the knot than let's say a knit tie or a grenadine tie simply because there's less friction because there's less texture. 8. Shirt iron. The idea is it's a little travel iron that you can bring along and that is specifically meant for your shirt collar. Now it's true the shirt collar is one of those things that are immediately visible but if you need to iron your shirt collar, you also likely have to iron at least the front of your shirt if you wear a jacket so it looks neat. So my question is, why is it worth carrying around an extra weight just for your shirt collar if most hotels and Airbnbs offer an iron, I simply don't know the answer to that. 9. Laundry detergents and soaps targeted specifically for men's clothing. I get it, the more specific you can target a customer the better it is, that being said, the difference in laundry detergent for men or for men's clothing is usually just the fragrance. So at the end of the day, the soap is no more or less effective for your men's clothing, it just has a different scent. 10. Pocket square holder. Now I get it, most pocket squares out there are too small to actually stay in your pocket and over the course of the day, it will slide down. The issue here is that the manufacturer cuts them so small because that way, they get the most yield out of the fabric width. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

When you need a new suit, you have lots of different options these days. There are more brands to choose from than ever before. This is great, but it can be a little overwhelming.

I want to help you choose the best option for your needs and budget. For the typical gentleman, here’s what I would suggest:

First, try to find something that fits well off the rack. Assume it will need a little tailoring, as this is totally normal with suits. Set aside $50-100 for basic alterations, such as getting the pants hemmed, sleeves shortened and jacket taken in.

If you can’t find anything that fits well enough off the rack, consider going custom. For most guys, this means made-to-measure. If money isn’t an issue - and/or you’re willing and able to invest in a great suit that you’ll wear for years - bespoke is definitely the way to go.

Prioritize companies that have showrooms (or fit shops) near you. It’s much better to go get your measurements taken, in person and by a professional, than to submit your own measurements.

If you can’t find a local option, it’s time to go the online MTM route. Of all the companies I’ve tried out, my experience has been with Oliver Wicks and Black Lapel.

If I had to pick, I’d choose Oliver Wicks. But please understand that I’ve had a lot of time to dial in my measurements with them. Black Lapel did a great job on the first (and only) suit they made for me.
