Hi Everyone. We're back this week with Part 2 of the Jon Yeazel Interview, "How to Dress for Success on Wall Street." See part 1 of the interview here.
Q: What are theessentials every man should own?
In my opinion the essential parts of aare not what many would consider essential at all. For the well dressed man the essentials are the small details of the that people often times will not notice until you actually put them into good use:
1. Pocket Square
I would say about 8 out of 10 men do not wear pocket squares regularly. A pocket square can add so much character to an outfit and it's such a simple thing to do. Whether you want it to blend in while at the office, or stand out during a night on the town, I strongly suggest trying it out and seeing what type of compliments come your way.
A quality pair of cap toe lace-ups, wingtips or oxfords will go a long way. You want them to be streamlined and clean with a round toe and a thin sole. For bigger men you can get away with a thicker sole as you will require more support but the rounded toe is a must.
3. "Bolder" Sock
To compliment your great new shoes don't be afraid to wear a brighter sock. This is something that women love to see and when done tactfully can add just the right touch of style to any outfit. A great starting point is to pair your pocket square with your socks. An exact match isn't what you want, for example, try pairing an all red sock with red gingham patterned pocket square. That will be a great starting point to build on for your new look.
These are a few oft over looked details of a well-dressed man that not only look great, but exude confidence as well.
