FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Augusta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 11, 2003-- In the wake of the ÂQueer Eye for the Straight GuyÂ tv show, Cindy Busch, image consultant and director of the TheExecutivesCloset.com AmericaÂs premier most comprehensive online custom clothier and tailor for men, wants to offer the alternative Âstyle eye for the straight guyÂ and shed some light on the Âmystery of dressing wellÂ and comporting yourself with style. So whatÂs the secret? Good form and style is NOT a mystery and it doesnÂt take rocket science to figure it out, just a little assertiveness to learn. And contrary to popular belief, gay men are not the only oneÂs who know how to be stylish.
Cindy, who is a woman and straight, knows real style and loves menÂs clothing a lot of women do. What she means is we are charmed by the ambiance that comes forth when a man is seen in a well tailored suit. Everything changes. We melt in liquid admiration while his look becomes all pout and swagger, all bumptious braggart, when our eyes behold the soft luster of silk and cashmere in a well appointed custom hand made suit superbly draped in an Italian cut made for his bodyÂs form. Our sunglasses just drop automatically, and our eyes fix into a spell bound stare when glancing over the Âcome touch me perfect white dress shirtÂ in a ÂwhiteÂ fitly matched for his coloring, and the come Âunravel me redÂ hand made silk tie just unravels us! TTTTalk about jaw dropping gorgeous, he just looks HOT!
When consulting, Cindy enjoys helping her clients bring their best look forward by working out the clients Âown styleÂ. So many of her clients ask whatÂs new but she advises that not every new fashion trend is going to work on every individual, this is the main reason why she insist on custom made. For example, the 6 button suit on a gentleman of smaller stature will make him look like one big button, it just doesnÂt work; however, the 2 or 3 button positioned properly works beautifully. Working with classic cuts and incorporating new ideas when appropriate is the philosophy she works by.She will put you in a style that looks good on You NOT someone else which is what alot of the "off the rack" fashion houses tend to do when promoting a style trend. Here are ten things every man should have in his closet.
Ten basic things every man should have in his closet:
1. The "Hello, You Can Trust Me" Blue Suit in (Solid or 7/8 or 1/2 chalk stripe ) traditional cut "well tailored", two or three button (depending on your height) in an all season high performance worsted wool and cashmere fabric. Your coloring will determine the intensity of the blue from deep intense navy to royal blue. The blue suit is the "correct suit" in just about every social scenario from business meetings to social gatherings it works perfectly. Choose high performance soft fabrics, for this is the suit that will receive the most wear and it needs to be in a fabric that is comfortable enough to be worn for long periods of time.
2. The "Staid, I Mean Business" Grey Solid Suit Italian cut "well tailored" with a wider shoulder expression , two or three button (depending on your height) in an all season silk and cashmere blend. This is a suit you will wear in more solemn and serious environments like court rooms or board meetings or social scenarios like funerals. It creates a look of authority and power. It is indeed a true power suit. Your coloring will determine the intensity of the grey from dark charcoals to the lighter grays. This suit should have a subtle to medium sheen to give the wearer a luminous look intensifying the image projected thus the cashmere/silk fabric.
Note: If you're only going to have two suits in your closet they need to be well made. Why wear clothing that isn't going to look good or last?
3. The "Uniform, White Dress Shirt" (well tailored) in 2 ply sea island cotton or 2 ply twill 100% cotton, in straight collar "only" for suits please (don't ruin the look of a suit by wearing a button down). If you wear a suit regularly you will probably need a least six in your closet and please never wear this shirt without a tee shirt underneath. Why 100% cotton? It just looks and feels better. It's also a more breathable fabric. Wash and wear or cotton blends cause you to become more heated because of the synthetic weave. If you want to avoid wrinkles request "heavy starch". Your coloring again will determine the intensity of the white from the luminous bright white to the cream or subtle oyster colors.
4. The "Classy, but informal Blue Blazer" In a traditional or contemporary cut less fitted with a fine weave Super 100's gabardine wool fabric, the blazer should be somewhat loosely comfortable but not baggy. This always works in a pinch and can be worn over shirt and tie or polo. Traditionally worn in casual less formal social scenarios but can be worn in business environments as well.
5. The "Intrepid Red Hand Made Silk Tie" in shade of red/burgundy that matches your coloring, solid or a conservative pattern in a length that is right for your height. Why red? It adds enough contrast to the rest of your garments to give you a look that captivates and compliments. Why hand made? Because it lasts.
6. The "Trusted, Khaki Trouser" in a cut that is right for your "body type" pleated or plain front with a break at the shoe that is right for your height (no reason for it not to look polished). A 100% cotton poplin or super fine micro-fiber or gabardine wool should be chosen as fabric. The khaki trouser is of-course a versatile garment worn in many casual social environments or an engineering business environment or similar.
7. The "Polished Polo" with a sleeve length that almost reaches the elbow in double mercerized cottons, silky micro-fibers or silk cotton blends. These shirts can be in patterns or solids with colors that match your own physical coloring and your khaki, grey and blue trousers. The polo can be worn alone or underneath a blazer unbuttoned or fully buttoned for a more sophisticated eclectic look. These garments work in casual environments and are great informal "dinner gathering" wear.
8. The "Italian Calf Short Vamp Penny, in Black" If I had to pick "one shoe" that would go with everything this is it, dressy enough to be worn with a suit and casual enough to be worn with a blazer. Remember a $90 pair of shoes may last 3 years; however, a $300 pair of shoes will last you a life time. You get what you pay for.
9. The "Glove Leather Black Belt with a Silver or Gun Metal Buckle" Always remember, Black shoes, Black belt. The gun metal or silver buckle will reflect the color of whatever you are wearing therefore matching everything.
10. The "Timeless Topcoat" in a cut that is becoming to your stature with a winter weight cashmere and wool fabric of neutral colors. If you have only one coat this should be it over the trench for you will wish you had a good winter coat when the temperatures drop. Buy a good wood handle golf umbrella for when it rains this will keep you dryer than the trench.
