Yes & No: Simple Tips When Getting Dressed

Sometimes we stumble across videos or pieces of advice that are so excellent, we are compelled to share it with the world. This is one such piece of advice and it comes in the form of a pretty clever video. BuzzFeedVideo released a video earlier this year, and it’s a perfect fit for the Sharp Gentleman in Training. It’s a great little “Do / Don’t Do” video when getting dressed. Essentially, how to dress like a man. I love a good video – especially one that’s clever or funny, so if you’ve got a video that belongs on The Sharp Gentleman, post a link in the comments and share it with us!

10 Ways Men are Dressing Wrong

I’m such a big fan of videos like this, that I have to post another that I frequently like to share with some of my younger, more Hipster (don’t worry, it’s a phase they’ll grow out of) friends. Skinny Jeans are never a good idea. Gentlemen are supposed to try and get into their lady’s pants… but not to wear them. Where did we, as a society, go so wrong? Don’t get me started on the newest craze: the drop-crotch pant. Thank you, Justin Bieber – we hate you.

  • Good call on the buzzfeed video. Some of those things really hit home, especially the tip about what length of shorts to wear. A lot of people seem to think that they look cool in those long baggy shorts, but when you look at another wearing them the reality sets in–nobody looks cool in those shorts.

    • I completely agree with the long baggy shorts. Baggy shorts just look awful unless they are basketball shorts. I love my basketball shorts long, but otherwise, they just make a person look unprofessional and sloppy.

  • This is some great advice. I always leave one button undone on my dress shirts. Jeans with a straight cut are perfect and fit the best and look the best, as it flatters your body type. No loud colors that you can see or hear from a mile away either. I have more of a casual style but will mix it up with a sporty look from time to time.

    • That’s what I basically do with my attires as well. I always go for the subdued colors; they look more sophisticated. I usually do prefer jeans with a straight cut, but I must admit I do sometimes wear skinny jeans. Not the ones that are too tight though. Anyway, I think some people aren’t really meant to wear skinny jeans, especially those people who are shorter.

  • Skinny jeans are bad for guys but those wide jeans from early 2000’s are way worse. Anyway, I prefer straight cut pants myself (usually black) with shoes containing black and white. Personally I think that’s what suits the best with whatever I wear above the belt.
    Actually, skinny jeans trend is profitable to manufacturers because there is less cloth used, perhaps they somehow made them popular. 🙂

    I would advise not following most of the style trends you can see lately, skinny jeans are just one of them. Recently I’ve seen quite terrible haircuts become popular, I don’t even know why.
