Having the best collection of shirts by the best designers made with the best fabrics doesnt end it all as a wrinkled portion of that shirt can make erase all these qualities away.

If your shirt is not ironed , it will definetly bring down your appearance and make that shirt look shabby.

Most especially the collars and the cuffs .

Quick Tip:If you’re in a hurry and have no time to iron it completely, make it simpler by ironing just parts of it- cuffs, collar etc. Put on a jacket over it to cover the creased parts but of course, this is only if you have absolutely no time to iron.

Fit Is King

The most dramatic improvement you can make in your style is to make sure everything fits impeccably. Most guys wear clothes that are too large or too tight.

Make sure everything you wear is almost hugging the shape of your body – without being tight. Bad fit is an epidemic that you should cure yourself from.
