"A man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them." - Hardy Amies
✳Basic Fashion Tips
✳Art of Dressing
“To achieve the nonchalance which is absolutely necessary for a man, one article at least must not match. For instance, you can wear a dark blue suit and tie with a pale blue shirt and navy blue socks, but you must then have a patterned silk handkerchief say in dark red or a paisley design. Or stick to blue and have dark red socks.” 🎩👔
"A correctly cut cap or hat in a check cloth of a clear, clean pattern can add a dash to an otherwise sombre country outfit." 👚
✳Care of Clothes
"First and foremost, let your clothes rest and revive. Do not wear a suit or shoes two days running. Both cloth and leather need time to breathe. Remember every time you sit down you are ironing a suit in the wrong places."
🎩👔 ✳ Grooming
"I do not think there exists a woman who does not like a man to smell nice; by nice she means a smell which is as far removed as possible from the kind of scent she uses herself; something clean and herby is required." 🎩👔
"They have an air of masculine superiority softened with an almost feminine grace which has proved successful in the great game of sexual attraction." "You must look perfectly happy and relaxed in your clothes which must appear part of you rather than a wardrobe you have donned" — Hardy Amies
