Blair Waldorf once said that a tuxedo is the ultimate male status symbol. According to her, a good tuxedo shows that a man can provide for his future wife and family. Some of you might disagree with Queen B but that doesn’t mean you’re not curious about what truly makes a man… or at least what makes him look good.
The Fifth Code designer, owner, and founder Lorenz Namalata says that a guy usually wears only four items namely: underwear, shirt, jeans, and a pair of shoes. The fifth item that completes the look would be a blazer. In this day and age where getting blazer doesn’t always mean visiting a trusted tailor, we get down to what truly makes a well-dressed man. Guys out there can learn how to look dapper and girls out there can judge their man by the coat on his back.—LADYZAZA
What makes a well-dressed man?
It is his attention to detail, mastery of mix and matching, and his ability to put together an outfit wherein all elements complement one another and on top of all that still look polished but at the same time not overtly done. And obviously, what he is wearing should always be appropriate for the occasion.
How do you differentiate a cheap suit from a well-made one?
The use of fabrics, such as polyester and silk, have the tendency to give off that tell-tale sign that what one is wearing is of cheap quality. Loose buttons and visible tassels also ensure that the suit was not streamlined properly. Nevertheless, a suit can be very much affordable but still be impeccably done.
What should a guy’s grooming habits be?
The basics: long hair or short hair just as long as it’s neat, clean nails, well-trimmed moustache (including the nose hair).
How does a guy want to see a girl dress?
Guys would want to see a girl dress just enough for her to express her sleek and stylish self but also bounded by her not giving off the wrong impression and courting unwanted attention.
What would you order in a bar and what does it say about you?
San Mig Light. What does it say about me? That I’m helping my mom in her job. Haha but when things get dragging a shot Bacardi 151 will do the trick.
How do you like your steak?
Medium well done. Plus lots of barbecue sauce!
