JUSTIN’S SHIP-SHAPE IN HIS WORK un­form, but in his down­time he looks like a school boy back from PT prac­tice. His wife emailed us and asked for to give him a style up­grade. “The only think he looks good in is his Navy uni­form and he owns 12 pairs of shorts,” she says. Our ad­vice, happy wife, happy life.

1/ Blazer Trail

A slim-fit blazer is a great wardrobe sta­ple, but you don’t want to blend in with all the other guys com­pet­ing for the same look. Opt for some­thing that shows you have a great per­son­al­ity, and that you pay at­ten­tion to de­tail. Start with a blazer in an un­ex­pected colour, like bur­gundy, olive green or khaki – it will spice up any ca­sual out­fit with­out sac­ri­fic­ing your style.

2/ Up­grade Tour Tees

Sure, there’s an emo­tional tie to each of your old worn out look­ing t-shirts, but it’s time to up­grade. Make room in your cup­board for a hand­ful of well-made, printed or solid T-shirts in neu­trals like white, gray, and olive. Logo tees will hold back your style, but cool graphic prints make any out­fit in­ter­est­ing.

3/ In­vest in Jeans

Find­ing that per­fect pair of well-fit­ting jeans is worth the ef­fort. Look for three must-have qual­i­ties: a slim fit, darker wash, and 5% elastin – and you’ll be able to wear your jeans just about any­where. Com­fort is cru­cial, af­ter all.
