A man’s wardrobe should undergo shifts as he goes through life. How should men dress as they age to show their distinction and professionalism? If you need to make any changes you’ll hear about it here!

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

In a man’s 30’s is when he really starts to solidify who he is. If you haven’t, it’s time to figure it out. Dressing more professionally will prompt people to take you more seriously and allow you to move into a more influential role.

Fit for men in their 30’s
Account for how your body has changed since your 20’s.
Clean out your closet.
Begin getting custom tailored clothes.
Work toward dignity in your clothes and give you gravitas.
Don’t dress too casual in an effort to look more youthful.

A few ways you can appear more dignified:

  1. Wear a jacket more often than not.
    • dress it down or up
  2. Wear leather shoes instead of sneakers everywhere.
  3. Tie your own tie.
  4. Have a good haircut that takes little prep work.
  5. Own a decent watch.
  6. Have a proper, fitted business suit.
    • dark color
    • modest pin stripe is okay
    • double breasted is okay

Every man in his 30’s should own:

  1. A dress watch.
    • Metal or leather band.
    • Simple and classic, not too chunky.
  2. Respectable wallet.
    • Leather
    • Intact
    • Thin
    • No nylon or velcro
  3. 2-3 pair of shoes.
    • Plain black, leather
    • Brown for a bit more casual
    • Casual options for social wear
  4. Grown-up haircut.
    • Fashion shouldn’t be at the expense of you looking dignified.
    • Simple, not a lot of gel or time required.
    • Balding? Don’t be ashamed, own it!

Avoid when in your 30’s:

  • Wearing athletic gear outside the gym.
  • Let go of the runway fashions.
  • Ties without a jacket.
  • Team jerseys.

Every man in his 40’s should own:

  1. Own a really nice hat.
    • Classic
    • Felt
  2. Well fitted leather gloves.
    • subdued color
  3. French cuff shirt with conservative cuff links.

Avoid when in your 40’s and 50’s:

  • Elastic waists
