Dress for success. That old saying has been used for ages because there’s some truth behind those words of wisdom. If you want to stand out in the crowd – and not abide by the basic office dress code – the little details make all the difference.
Andrisen Morton selected a modern suit fit for the season, and the well-dressed man.
“Suits are not timeless…suits today are closer to the body – trimmer, shorter, cap or soft shoulder. Trousers now have a trimmer thigh, narrower bottom and the length should just touch the shoe,” says Craig Andrisen.
According to Andrisen a well-dressed must-have is, “wearing the right model that fits your body. Better the quality – a better fit.”
Mix n’ Don’t Match
An easy way to stand out of the crowd is incorporating a patterned gutsy shirt and a textured woven tie. No need for a tie accessory with this look; the skinny tie does all of the talking.

Pocket Square Panache
When it comes to a polished look, take careful consideration of the little details. Stuff a retro-patterned pocket square into your lapel jacket to personalize your look – solid colors, or patterned. It’s old school cool because some staples never die.

Beauty & The Belt
A good leather belt is the last thing to put on, but the first thing to get noticed. A belt should match the color of shoes so you get a clean, minimalist look that brings the whole look together. Also if you have accessories like cuff links or a watch, make sure the belt buckle has the same color finish.

For The Sole
Only black, brown or burgundy will do when it comes to a professional setting. There’s no rules against mixing an ombre black with brown, though. Lose the laces, embrace a chunky sole and the final touch to a narrow pant is the practice of cuffing pants. Not only does it protect the fabric from the streets but also it’s a modern look your grandpa might not understand.
