Tailor your threads

Oversize clothes are unflattering on anyone, especially bigger men like myself. To make it worse, poorly dressed individuals are viewed as dismissive, less confident, and unprofessional.

Luckily, all it takes is a trip to a tailor and a few small alterations to set some things straight. Gather your ill-fitting clothing and visit an expert in your area. He should measure you from head to toe and provide a list of the final numbers to take on your next shopping excursion. In the meantime, have the tailor apply your measurements to the clothes you brought in.

Invest in your shoes

Your outfit may be the first thing others notice, but your shoes tie it all together. Invest in a shoe cleaning and polishing kit, or build your own. A basic kit includes black and brown shoe polish, polish applicators, polishing cloths, shoe trees, and a cleaning brush. Start by removing the laces and using a horsehair brush to remove dirt. Apply a generous coat of polish with an applicator or rag and work it into the material using a quick circular motion. Once the excess polish has been removed, it's time to add a little shine. Place your hand inside the shoe and make a fist. Using a soft cloth, polish the exterior to the desired finish. Make a habit of tending to your footwear once a week and you'll always be prepared.
