Also, I own about 10 pairs of glasses, although one pair is missing right now. My glasses are generally going to match my outfit.

Sometimes I will dress up and do a button down and no tie with slacks. Sometimes I will add a skinny tie but leave the top button open. I wear regular ties with shirts for important meetings and suits for interviews and ops reviews.


You sound like a very good friend of mine who happens to run GQ magazine. Maybe you ARE him??

No blazer for you? No jacket?

I just wear a short/long sleeve collared shirt, jeans, and tennis shoes or leather casual wear shoes. In the winter I like Red Wing boots and one of my several Marmot jackets. I'm in an office all day where no one hardly sees me so I wear my regular casual clothes.

I got a free year subscription from 21Men and I really didn't find their fashion tips very exciting. I was more into the articles in the last few pages and the various alcoholic beverage articles lol.

Interesting... I work in (sorta) government IT as well as being a freelance photographer. I dress up a bit - usually a tie, or no tie if I add a blazer. I'm easily the best dressed guy at work, so there's that.

When I photograph weddings, I always ask the bride what their colors and the feel of their wedding are. I then add about $75 to $100 to the cost of the wedding package and either rent something or buy it. If I buy it and it's a flexible piece of clothing, I can charge a few weddings for it and get something really nice. I see this as a good way to upgrade your business wardrobe without breaking the bank. This way you can go buy a $2000 suit and depending on how many weddings you shoot, you could have it paid off in a few months without ever spending a penny of your own money.
