    How to look interesting, and what colors to wear instead of black part 3

    Why black is bad even though many people wear it, number 2:

    Black clothes can fade and you can also see deodorant stains which are lighter in color so a t-shirt in this color looks old much more quickly than a gray t-shirt or a white t-shirt. This color is not ideal because it absorbs a lot of energy of light so you can easily overheat, especially during the warmer seasons. Black is also not so easily combined with other shades of gray and especially not with navy. If you have a black jacket and navy pants, it just looks bad. It is too close in color but not quite the same and so it just looks off. The same goes when you wear a black jacket and black pair of pants made of a different material, it just looks wrong. On the other hand, if you had a charcoal suit, you can easily combine it with a navy tie because it works together much better. It gives you a greater range of combination and it is similarly dark. So charcoal is the better black. Whenever you think about getting a black suit or a jacket, go with charcoal and you will look much better.

    Color tip TWO: Orange

    The feelings it evokes are uplifting, fun, playful, creative. And if you don't like red, you don't like pink, guys, orange is a great alternative a very powerful color. Again, one that is only going to make up about 1% of your wardrobe. Now, that being said, you want foundation pieces like a sports jacket being orange? The answer is no.

I have seen it on boots. The jacket, for example, has got contrast stitching that is orange. That is where I feel orange, that is where the orange really shine. Again, is they are just a little bit of a spice that you add to a larger base color.

Sometimes people also claim, this color makes you look slimmer although there does not seem to be any scientific purpose for that. If you just think about it, if a dark color makes you look slimmer than for example, a charcoal color would do the exact same thing, yet charcoal is not as popular as this color.

    Full canvas construction is much stiffer and feels like it but it has crisp look that you sometimes know from military garments or evening wears such as tuxedos or tailcoats.

    Fused/glued suit interlinings, number 3:

    Overall, a glued suit is just very unexciting to wear. With a fused interlining, you also do not end up with a nice lapel roll. Usually, they are quite flat which looks unexciting, and it is a hallmark of a cheap glued suit. Because of the interlining, it always stands in an awkward manner and there is really nothing you can do about it, it just looks off to a trained eye. Moreover, these fused jackets are not made to last because eventually, they will come loose and at that point, it, will form ugly blisters on your lapel and on the outside, that is when you have to throw the garment away. When you buy a fused suit, you are part of the throwaway economy because the resources that are used have to be thrown away and it is also bad for your wallet because even though the initial investment is low, you have to buy it over and over again. Glued suit deteriorates over time and then at one point in time when you get the blisters, you can throw it away and it is worthless.
