Contrary to what we may want to believe, first impression do count! We only get one chance to make that first impression, and that including what we wear. When it comes to dapper style, don't compromise, your suit should reflect your personality.

1. Tailor Suits For The Right Fit

The most essential of all dapper style is the suit. Don’t expect anything to fit right off the rack, find great alterations tailor instead and work to find out your perfect fit.

The seam of the shoulder should end where the shoulder ends. Make sure nothing billowy about how the jacket frames your biceps and it should stop where the arm ends. Also pay attention to waist of the pants, it should be sitting about two inches below your navel.

2. Pay Attention To Pants Length

Are those your ankles we see? Don’t miss to pay attention to trouser length and get the hems turned up or taken down. It should be just enough to be grazing the top of your shoes without having to hang around your ankle.

5. Pick The Right Socks

Socks are an interesting piece of clothing, we pay so little attention to them and yet they’re central to our comfort in several ways. Play with pattern and color, and make sure they’re long enough so that no bare ankle will be visible beneath the trousers.

7. Get Out Of The Comfort Zone

Finding yourself has lots to do with getting out of your comfort zone. Try something new, invest in timeless staples, and give yourself a chance to born anew.
