The Ten Commandments of Men's Fashions

All style is relative, but there are some style rules for men that should be commandments. Justin Harvey can provide the fashions, and if you follow a few commandments you can look better every day.

Ten basic fashion commandments for men:

1. Thou shall wear a belt when wearing pants with belt loops.

2. Thou shall match the color of his belt to that of his shoes.

3. Thou shall not wear suspenders without a jacket. Sorry hipsters.

4. Thou shall never, ever, ever use their belt to hold accessories like phones, Ipods, ID tags and/or keys.

5. Thou shall not wear sport sunglasses with a suit. It’s like wearing socks with sandals.

6. Thou shall not wear a tie without a jacket.

7. Thou shall match the color of his socks with the color of his pants. As an exception, socks can be matched to something worn above the waist such as a man’s shirt, tie, pocket square or suspenders.

8. Thou shall not wear a crew neck undershirt when the top button of a shirt is left unbuttoned. When leaving the top button unbuttoned thou shall wear a v-neck undershirt.

9. Thou shall never button all three buttons of a three button jacket. Sometimes the top, always the middle and never ever ever the bottom.

10. It is better to be overdressed than under-dressed.
