The following advice isn’t for Jack Dorsey, it’s for the 30 year-old dude who still dresses entirely in startup swag, or who owns five black ‘Steve Jobs’ turtlenecks or who wears white athletic socks and dress shoes or who still hasn’t opened up the seams in his jacket pockets. And, more importantly, WANTS THIS TO CHANGE.
The amazing blog Put This On has two seminal articles that any nerdy guy finding himself in a situation where he has to dress like an adult should memorize.
Hoodies are cool with me, but if you absolutely insist on wearing t-shirts everywhere make sure they are either a) solid colored and have no logos on them b) have very subtle logos on them. You can only break this rule if you are advanced enough to know that it’s a rule in the first place.
(See … The T-Shirt Outfit.)
Scott Schuman’s The Sartorialist is full of great examples of men dressing like they know the rules, and know when to break them.
Quick pro-tips for the male sartorial beginner: Know when you’re breaking a “rule.” When in doubt go with neutrals (black, gray, brown, beige, navy, white and sometimes army green and red). Socks should only be white if you’re at the gym. And, last but not least, jacket pockets are intended to be opened (It just makes sense right?).
