Wing Tips

So I've been changing my style lately, and part of that change is getting away from wearing sneakers all the time.. I have recently become enamored with vintage wing tips. You can score VERY nice leather soled wing tips pretty cheap if you look in the right places. I love old wing tips it's like wearing leather combat boots but with ALOT more style. This is what happens when an old punk starts dressing nicer.
Also, if you want to add a bit more personal style to your wing tips colored laces pop out like crazy and give them a not so formal feeling.

So I spoiled myself like crazy the past few weeks.. I bought some VERY nice suits.. I believe every man should own at least 2 very nice suits.. And by very nice suits, I mean suits that actually fit.. not just off the rack suits. You can do this a few ways.. find a nice suit and take it to a tailor to get it taken in, or you can visit sites like that will custom make a suit for you.. there are as well other places that can be found on ebay that will make a suit for you VERY cheap..  Here are some ways to size a suit for yourself. Also I should note a few things about suits. First of 2 buttons is the way to go. Secondly, never button the bottom button. 

Another and easier way to size a suit is to goto a men's store or suit store and have them size it for ya! Also something to  keep in mind.. save the size.. memorize it.. it will make your  life easier.

See these two? One is a 1500 dollar Hugo Boss suit and the other is made by a tailor in the east.. and costs 70 bucks.. can you tell the difference? The only notable difference is the material used which up close does make a large difference. Now off to find some fitted french cuff shirts...
