pyramid.

there are three basic factors to any piece of clothing that must come into play:

fit                                           fabric                                   style

 

Fit

It doesn't matter how nice your clothing is if it doesn't fit you well. Talk to a tailor or a suitor (suiter? maker of suits?) and find out how certain pieces should fit. Do an dang google search for crap's sake, it's not that hard. Make sure you're buying the right sizes and that those sizes are fitting you correctly and helping you look as good as possible. A nice piece of of clothing that fits like garbage will look like garbage and cost too much. 

 

Fabric

you'll want to ensure your clothing is made of quality fabrics and put together with care. One of the biggest problems I have with H&M stuff (not all of it but a majority of it) is that the fabrics are all lightweight poly blends that don't breathe or stay together well. Yes, a piece can look amazing even if it's made with cheap fabrics, but A) it won't last very long and b) it will often wrinkle or fade extremely quickly and look cheap right away.

 

fashion

Find your own fashion sweet spot. Don't [only] rely on other people to tell you what's "in" and what's not. Find out how current and trendy or how classic you want your style to be and purchase pieces accordingly. Just because a celebrity is wearing some outlandish and cool jacket, doesn't mean everyone should rush out to buy something similar. In fact, in most cases this is a terrible idea. Find your style, your fashion zone, and be comfortable with it.

 

find the best way to do you.

Fitness.

clothes best flatter a fit body. When it comes to your appearance, apparel is only part of the equation; it is important to eat well, drink well, and exercise occasionally.

The best way to make your clothes look better is to shape your body to fit better into your clothes. While tailoring is still important, your clothing will naturally follow the contours and shapes of your body best when you're in your best form.

fit.

It’s no use wearing expensive shirts and branded trousers if you’ve got the fit wrong. People will only notice that your clothes are hanging off you or, alternatively, are too tight for you.

Chest.

The psychological effect of a well-designed suit should be to make you throw this out if you can. A fairly full cut chest to the jacket will ask to be filled, and you will be amazed at the difference this makes to your waistline.

ABC's of Men's Fashion #10.

Balance.

Balance is the ultimate test of a finished coat. It is really the hang, the look and the feel of the thing all combined in the one quality that make it a success or a failure - good balance. It should sit easily on the shoulders, hang evenly at the front and back, and look as though it belongs to you without fitting too closely. The list of faults that may throw a jacket, however well made, is so long and varied that there is no point in trying to be technical about something so intangible. To this, as to anything else that is designed and made, the one golden rule applies; if it looks right, it is right. You can judge for yourself in the glass.
