The Rules of Fashion For Men


It is hard to say that there are rules of fashion, but there are certainly things that are good to know when it comes to looking good as a man. I thought I would talk more about a topic that just continues to grow and grow. So read on to find out just a few of the rules that you need to know about fashion.

Buy quality

Buying quality items of clothing is the best idea, because they generally look better and last longer. There is a reason that Hugo Boss clothing looks so good and is more expensive. Find a great clothing shop, like Mainline Menswear, where you can easily shop for all the pieces that you need in one convenient place.

Feel comfortable

Being comfortable is the most important rule of fashion for men. If you don’t feel comfortable there is very little chance that you feel good or confident in what you are wearing. Of course this does not mean that you should wear the most comfortable thing that you own, but it means that you should attempt to find a balance between comfort and style.

Spray less

One thing you need to know about cologne is that you can’t take it off, once it is on it is on. You can always put more on later, but never make the mistake of spraying too much of it because it is noticeable and a huge mistake. Less is more with cologne and you can easily take a small spray bottle with you wherever you go if you need a touch up.

Understand what casual means

Casual does not mean wearing your pyjamas around outside, it means that you are not formally dressed. This is not an excuse to look sloppy or like you don’t care. A man can look good even if he is only wearing sneakers, a white t shirt and jeans. The key is that everything is clean and neatly matches. This is the true meaning of casual.

Details make the man

One thing that men often miss when it comes to clothing is the small details that you can really make others notice if you know how. For example, your t shirt might have a slightly woven texture rather than just normal cotton. This is a great detail that you should be looking for in everything you buy as these can make an outfit stand out without being overly loud.

Simple Fashion Tips For Men

Men are still learning to get fashion right and we are not quite at the point of mastery yet, but knowing the right things can help us to lead by example and show others the right way. Here are some tips that will truly help you to improve your style and avoid some common mistakes that no man should make, so read on to find out more.

Dress for the occasion

It is important to match what you are wearing to the situation you are in. For example if you are at a wedding you should wear a tie or bow tie, but don’t wear a suit to a casual date and a movie. It is perfect when you get the level of dress right, rather than being the under or overdressed guy.

Wear a denim shirt

The denim shirt has served men well since the inception of denim itself, this tried and true wardrobe staple is something that you can definitely use to dress up or dress down almost any outfit. My recommendation for denim shirts is of course to never ever wear them with matching jeans, this is just a bad idea and it doesn’t look good. Avoid this at all costs and if you are going for double denim, make sure you choose darker jeans and a lighter denim shirt.

Wear slim clothing

Slim clothing does not need to mean skin hugging tight, but rather a size and cut that fits to your body. In other words, clothes that fit you properly and can accentuate your best features. Women have been doing this well for a very long time! Do not, however, wear things that are too tight, not only are they not comfortable, but they look silly too.

Layer, layer, layer

Layering is a man’s best friend when it comes to creating interesting shapes and visuals with a man’s outfit. Therefore the well dressed man should always be layering to some extent. Layering not only looks good, but it is very practical for all types of weather. If you are too hot, you take a layer off and vice versa.

Match your shoe colour to your belt colour

This is one of the golden rules of mens fashion. If you are wearing black shoes, then you need to wear a black belt. There are no exceptions to this rule, ever!

Getting the perfect wedding photography



It is no secret that a good wedding photographer in Surrey or wherever you happen to be is one of the most important factors in getting the perfect wedding shots. This is a big factor but it is simply not enough to make the photos perfect and there are many things that you can do and think about before to add that extra edge to your photos. Read on to find out some of the secrets of the ideal wedding pictures.

Scout out the location

This is something that you have most likely done when you first booked the wedding venue, but probably isn’t fresh in your mind. The best advice here is to simply explore the venue again and think more about the most beautiful or interesting places where you could potentially take photos. If it is possible it is also a great idea to bring your photographer along for some creative vision, because he or she may have some great ideas for your particular location.

Don’t worry, be happy

Despite what anyone says being happy and carefree is one of the best ways to look your best in the photos, but also means that your special day is going to be as special as possible. When you are happy you naturally look your best and naturally will take the best photos possible without any forced smiles.

Don’t think of everything

It is a good idea to think up some poses or shots that you want to capture beforehand, but don’t be upset if this does not turn out the way that you want it to. Be open to the idea of some freestyle shots, because being natural is the key to great photos. On the day someone may simply come up with a great idea that will be fun for everyone to try, so simply remember that the wedding is about fun and nothing else!


This is a great way to come up with some great ideas for some shots that you want to capture. A great thing to do is to talk to your wedding photographer beforehand, because after all they are the expert and have probably been to countless weddings and can really give you some great creative influence.

Think of the details

Details are the most important part of any picture and wedding photos are no exception to this. Think about small but interesting details that you may want to capture, for example are the wedding bands being used have some interesting features. Perhaps you have a specific detail of the dress or suits that you know that the photographer can capture.
