Presentation matters!

“You're saying something with your appearance whether you mean to or not, so you might as well mean to.” - Lyle Lovett


Perception

The coverings we wear are the first things people see when they lay eyes on us. A man who desires to leave his mark on his world must be intentional about the way he presents himself to the world.

Start by asking yourself these questions:

Who am I?

Who/What do I represent?

How does my style portray those concepts?

Style vs. Fashion

Here at IMan, we don’t believe that style equates to trendy or fashion.

A gentleman’s style emerges from a deep understanding of who he is. It is a physical display of his truth and his values which culminates into a desire to be remembered in a distinct manner.

This understanding should lead a man to approach his style with enthusiasm and a sense of alertness. This alertness will cause him to not simply approach every outfit with conviction, but it will also affect every other task he undertakes. He will speak with purpose and walk in confidence.

That man will be comfortable in his own skin, not as a result of price-tags or name brand of this clothes. But in consequence of the realization that with every outfit he will have gotten closer to re-defining himself.

When considering suiting men often fear patterns. Richard manages to turn what most would consider to be a busy suit into display of finesse. The white spots on this glen plaid suit is a distinct pattern. Combining a fine-stripe blue dress shirt with a brown and blue tie with horizontal a pattern is a step away from the everydayness a basic shirt. Every man should own a shirt like this; it’s simple but can be paired with most suits since the stripes are not oppressive. The addition of the suspenders (braces) and stitched pocket linen to this outfit creates a sense of sophistication. The key feature of the modern look is executed by the break of Richard’s trousers, which in this case serves to accentuates his shoes.

Tame what they call busy with finesse. - Mr. Jean Pierre

This outfit is a modern-casual look with a slight touch from the past. The double-breasted suit is as 80’s as Michael Jordan and the Walkman, however a simple pair of white leather sneaker adds modern swag to the look without overstepping the pattern and detail of the suit. Think of the suit as the center-piece and everything else complimenting it; the pocket square and socks both have green in them adding an element of consistency to the outfit. The aim for this look is simple but elegant, so a plain black Tee does the trick in this case. This just one example of a modern casual look, but it can be approached in different ways, so don’t be afraid to make it your own. The key is balance, but we also encourage you to consider experimenting with accessories and making subtle connections in the smallest details.

Attention to detail makes or breaks an outfit. - Mr. Jean Pierre

Classic

George’s navy double breasted pinstripe suit can only be described with by one word, striking! The combination of bold stripes on a double-breasted suit is time-honored, and should be placed in a category all by itself. Again, this is a rather simple ensemble, but fit and detail make up for popping colors and boisterous patterns. The english tan shoe selection gives the suit the perfect drop of pop the outfit needs, (brown shoes complement navy very well) adding flavor like pikliz on banan peze. The slim-tapered fit of the suit is also just right, for George-fit is all about personal preference, take some time to explore different types of fit and find the one that best suits your style. George went for a combination of not too tight but also not too loose.

Learn to speak boldly without interrupting. -Mr. Jean Pierre
