2. If you want a more modern look, thin lapels are the way to go. Wide lapels are more old school, in general.

3. If you want to look extra stylish, you can go for a pocket square, but make sure it doesn’t match your tie in either pattern or fabric choice

15. The top button of a two-button should fall at or above the navel

When wearing a three-button jacket, the middle button should fall at or above the navel.

16. Always go with the classic windsor knot for your tie

You can determine to go for a half or full windsor knot. If your head is somewhat bigger than average, the full knot would fit you better. If you have an average size head, you can go for the half windsor knot.

17. Always keep the bottom button unbuttoned, when you wear a vest

18. Vests are best worn with single-breasted suits

If you’re going to be wearing your suit in a cold climate, a vest can add a lot of warmth.

19. Sleeve cuffs should be exposed about 1/2 an inch

20. Unstitch the jacket’s pockets, remove the tack stitches from the jacket’s vents and remove the little embroidered label from the jacket’s left sleeve

Do this very carefully with a small sharp scissor to ensure you don’t actually rip the fabric or neighbouring threads.

21. Make sure that your socks are long enough that there’s no exposed leg when sitting down

22. Your tie should always be darker than your dress shirt

23. The jacket should be just long enough to cover your pants zipper

24. The tie should reach the waistband of your trousers or be slightly shorter

25. For a fashionable look, the hem should just hit the top of your shoe

For a more conservative look, the hem should cover the top of the shoe.

26. Wear an undershirt if you sweat a lot
