The 10 Commandments of Style

GQ is one of the world’s leading mens magazine for fashion, lifestyle, cars, and women. So when they write an article on those subjects, you better keep reading. There are a few hard-and-fast rules for dressing well. Master these and you will possess the building blocks of great taste. Plus the ladies love it when a man knows how to dress himself.

1. Honor thy tailor

Even the best suits need altering. Pants need to be shortened, jackets need to be brought in, sleeves need to be narrowed (yes, you can ask your tailor to slim down your sleeves), and buttons need to be realigned with buttonholes (most guys’ shoulders aren’t entirely even, meaning your jacket often sits a bit askew). You should always buy your correct size, but you then need to have a tailor customize it to your body. It’s the difference between being appropriately dressed and being stylishly dressed.
