In the professional world, men have to dress to impress. Your wardrobe for work should include colorful button-down collared shirts, great ties, belts, socks, and shoes. VIBRANT BUTTON-DOWN SHIRTS
There is something to be said for tradition. The basic collared button-down shirt will never be out of style in the professional world. While you may be afraid to venture outside of the (literally) white-collared varieties, a splash of color is perfectly acceptable and professional as well. In fact, brightly colored collared shirts will make you stand out and give you a more commanding presence in the office than your plain old white collared shirt. One of the hottest colors to wear is marina blue - this shade is very eye-catching and sophisticated. It is great for men of all ages, but young men look particularly dignified and mature in this hue. Men should not feel stifled when it comes to wearing a variety of colors - yellows, reds, greens, and even stripes are perfect for a professional workplace. Also, always purchase shirts that fit you properly. Baggy, loose-fitting clothes have no place in the professional world, and likewise, you don't want to have the stuffed sausage button-bursting look either. And of course - always neatly press your shirts for work - wrinkles are big time no-no!
If you want to be taken seriously in your workplace, you can't go around wearing a Mickey Mouse tie that plays "It's a Small World" at the press of Mickey's nose. Fun ties are just that ? fun. In a professional environment, you need to wear professional-looking ties. If you want to wear a Santa Claus tie to the office Christmas party, go ahead, but otherwise, you want your ties to be as classy and stylish as the rest of your wardrobe. Regis Philbin brought tie style into the limelight when he started matching his predominantly solid-colored ties with his solid-colored button-down shirts, and this is a great fashion trend for professional men to emulate. If you are wearing a sky blue collared button-down shirt, pair it with a tie in a complimentary but slightly darker shade of blue. Matching your tie with your shirt is a great way to pull your look together and give your style a boost.
Whether you wear suits at work all the time or you only wear them for special meetings or presentations, you need to have a well-made tailored suit if you are a professional. Don't skimp on the suit ? a cheap suit at a business meeting sticks out like a flamingo in a field of white doves. Visit a department store for a fitting, and make sure that you try on an array of styles and brands to find the right cut and look for your body type. Unless you are in good shape, you should avoid pin stripe suits - they simply don't flatter overweight men. Black and navy suits are the most common, but don't be afraid to try a deep brown suit or a gray one, especially if you can afford to buy yourself a few different ones. For occasions when you don't need a suit, your wardrobe should be equipped with fitted pleated or non-pleated pants in khaki, gray, black, and navy. Make sure that your pants are tailored so that they hit the tops of your shoes, and never wear pants that are too baggy or too tight for your body.
Yes, even men have to accessorize. First of all, never ever wear white socks; they look absolutely dreadful with a work wardrobe. You should have plenty of pairs of black dress socks - at least two weeks worth (especially if you are like most men and you loathe laundry day). You can also experiment with gray or brown dress socks or even argyles - just make sure they match the rest of your attire. Remember: black and navy blue will NEVER match, and neither will black and brown - no matter how much you wish they would. You should have a few belts in your wardrobe as well - a couple shiny black belts and perhaps a brown one as well. You should also have black dress shoes, and perhaps a slightly less formal pair of brown loafers. Always make sure that your shoes and your belt are shined so that you have a polished appearance to top off your professional look.
Getting the right golf shoes is not as easy as it was in the past. There are literally hundreds of options out there for you. Knowing which one is better than the next is not simple by any means. To find the correct golf shoe for you, be prepared to do a little research so that you know what types and brands are available to you. You can start your search by checking the Internet to see what kind of consumer information is out there. Read as many review and articles on golf shoes as you possibly can so that you will be as educated as possible. You want golf shoes that are comfortable and durable. In addition, look for ones that are not out of your price range and that are not going to hurt your feet. That is a lot to remember, but with a little homework you can certainly find the right pair of golf shoes for you.
First thing to consider is how you play golf as an individual. The way you play is something that should greatly affect the type of shoes you decide will be best for you. If, for instance, you tend to walk when you play, you will likely use a little different type of shoe than will someone who often rents a cart to play. Likewise, if you are the type of player that likes to rent a cart, take that into consideration as you seek out your golf shoes.
Another thing to consider as you search for your perfect golf shoe is the type of spike you like to use. Some people prefer the soft spikes, while other prefer hard ones. The thing is that most golf courses now require you to use the soft spikes. So if you like the hard spikes more, it is best to check out the golf courses you prefer to find out if they will even let you use the hard spikes. The reason many courses have gone away from allowing hard spikes is that they are destructive to the grass and the rest of the course. In almost every case, you are going to be better off just getting soft spikes for your shoes. Soft spike shoes make it easier to walk on the cart paths and in the clubhouse of your favorite course. Shopping for golf shoes will be easier on you and on the course if you seek out shoes that use soft spikes for your golfing.
Another thing to do when you look for your golf shoes is to try on many shoes from a variety of brands. No matter what you are looking for in a golf shoe, and no matter what it is you find, you should always try on the shoes. There is no way to know how your feet are going to react to golf shoes if you do not try them on first. The best choice for golf shoes is going to be the pair that fits you best. Fit is every bit as important, if not more so, than the type of spikes you use or what your golfing habits. When you play around of golf you are going to be wearing the shoes for a long time so you need to make sure they fit and are comfortable. Make sure the shoes have good arch support, solid soles, and a nice feeling on your foot. A round of golf is going to last several hours so make sure your feet get through it okay.
When you play golf, your entire game starts with your feet. From your stance to your weight shift, your feet play an important role in your swing and overall game. Since your feet are so important to your game, it is necessary to make sure you have the best possible golf shoes for your feet. Make sure your shoes are the right size as well as having the right types of spikes in them. Soft spikes are recommended since it is becoming more and more rare to find a place that will allow you to even wear the hard metal spikes. Once you have the right type of spikes, and then just make sure the shoes fit correctly. The only way you will know, though, is to try them on.
