    Wedding dress codes, number 5: Outdoor weddings

    In those casual settings, neckwear may be optional but again, ask your host. If you are at the beach wedding, things change dramatically. Maybe the couple does not even want you to wear shoes, maybe they want you to wear sandals, maybe they do not even want you to wear jackets and it is just a t-shirt and shorts, so you really have to figure out what that means.

    Wedding guest etiquette, number 4:

    It is never okay to wear sandals, shorts, or short sleeved shirts unless specifically requested or invited by the wedding couple.


    Wedding dress codes, number 1:

    If you get an invitation that does not stipulate a dress code, please reach out to your host and ask them what would make them feel comfortable or what they expect. Otherwise, you may be way overdressed or way underdressed which makes you uncomfortable or they look bad and that is something you definitely want to avoid.

    Wedding dress codes, number 2: Black tie

    The most formal one you can find today is probably a black tie. Most of the time you can see black tie optional. That means you can wear the black tie on some with the black bowtie. But if you do not have a tuxedo, you can wear something equivalent such as a dark suit.

    Wedding dress codes, number 3: Cocktail attire

    Another popular dress code for wedding is cocktail attire, it basically means you have a dark suit or suit has little sparkle or something special, a little more of a pop of color, a little louder than the business suit and you can wear a dress shirt, you can wear a tie, something that is still formal but just with a little more fun.

    Wedding dress codes, number 4: Outdoor weddings

    If your wedding is an outer event or in a garden setting and it is during the summer, you can wear lighter colors but the best thing is to ask your host to get an idea of what kind of dress they want and what kind of event it is. The more formal it is, the more likely you are to wear a suit and you do not want to show up in a seersucker suit if everyone around you is dressed in a very dark formal ensemble.

    Wedding guest etiquette, number 1:

    You never ever want to overshadow either the bride or the groom. It is their day, they are the center of attention and you are there to celebrate it with them, not to outshine them or outdo them. So what does that mean? Basically, you tone it down. You do not wear wild colors, you do not wear bold patterns or accessories like a top hat or something that makes maybe other people uncomfortable or something that is decidedly dapper than what the groom is wearing.

    Proper pants break and length guide part 1

    What pants break is, number 1:

    The break is when the front of your pants or trousers hits your shoe and creates a little dent that is elegant and not too extreme. The best way to evaluate your break is when you stand still. The no break is when the hem of your pants just hang straight and does not even touch the shoe at all. The half break is if you see a slight dent in the front and the full break is if you have a noticeable dent in the front of the pants but none in the back. If you see pants that have dents in the front and in the back they are simply too long and it looks extremely sloppy.

    Men’s scarf guide part 10

    Tips on how to spot a quality scarf, number 4:

    Do a burn test. Unfortunately, many scarves are mislabelled, and sometimes they contain artificial fibers although the tag claims, 100% silk, pashmina, silk, wool, etc. The only practical way to know the material composition is to have it tested in a lab which is time intensive and costly. If you have a little sample or a fringe, you can always do the burn test. Natural materials burn differently and smell differently. Some scarves may be blended, but you will always know if you have some artificial fibers in your scarf if it looks like it is melting and if it smells like burned plastic.

    Scarf materials, number 11: wool

    From the fleece of the sheep and a range of other animals, wool comes in a variety of textures and styles depending on how its woven, but is traditionally very warm and durable. Often used for winter scarves, the wool is an excellent source of warmth and protection against a wide variety of elements. Today, wool is one of the most common materials found in scarves the world over.

    Men’s scarf guide part 8

    Scarf materials, number 9: pashmina

    Originally, produced using the delicate under hair of goats from the Kashmir region in India, pashmina used to be a very thin, delicately woven and luxurious fabric. Typically worn by women, pashmina has made a recent transfer into men’s fashion and is no longer exclusive to the square feminine scarves, despite that being its predominant use. Today, many scarves are advertised as pashmina, but the huge problem is that it is not a protected term and as such anything can be sold to you as pashmina. At best, you will end up with inferior cashmere or wool that is blended with silk and at worst, you get something made out of the viscose-polyester blend. In any major city in the world, you will find the street vendors offering you pashmina scarves for $5. Basically, these items are produced in one big batch from inferior materials and then sold across the globe. As such I can only recommend staying away from anything advertised as pashmina because in 99.9% of the cases it is not the real thing. If you can get a little sample, you can do a burn test and see if the scarf is really made from the pashmina.
