How to wear a Blazer!

A suit may not be always the ideal look for you so let me educated you on an alternative. A blazer is a type of jacket that is considered suitable for formal occasions. Although blazers are similar to suit jackets, they do not feature matching pants. Blazers also often feature less structured shoulders than suit jackets.

We only live once so why not set the tone every time you step out with a outfit that makes them stare. Stepping out no matter the day is something that everyone looks forward to and are excited for. Any event requires a great deal of attention, style, and to be quite frank you need to be fresh! So it’s only right when hitting the scene as a Sharp Crisp Clean individual I drop the keys to success for all those that live such a lifestyle.

The blazer symbolizes grown man status, trust, uniqueness, the ability to understand fashion, class and a positive aura. The blazer for a Sharp Crisp Clean individual is like Superman with his cape, Black Panther and his vibranium, Rick Ross with his beard. It simply gives you super powers!!! The blazer should utter the words “I have arrived” once you stepped in the room without even saying a word. Check out some SCC tips on how to rock the Blazer.

1.Blazer/ Turtle Neck/ Jeans 👖/Loafers or Hard Bottoms  / Pocket Square 

2. Blazer/ Button up shirt 👔/ dress pants / Hard bottoms  /Pocket Square 

3. Blazer/ BowTie/ Jeans 👖 / Dress shirt/ Wingtips/Pocket Square 

4. Blazer / Designer shirt/ Dress pants / Pocket Square/ loafers 

There are multiple different  styles of blazers, but two most frequent blazers are the double-breasted the single button and the two-buttons.

 Fit

A great blazer must fit well and be tailored to your body. Taking it to a local tailor shop or if the store you purchased provides this service is recommended. 

Things to look out for when looking for a fit:

  • If the blazer pulls and forms an “X” when buttoned.

  • If the shoulders and sleeves of the blazer will be tight and have pulls. Also if the sleeves are too long or short 

  • If the shoulders either extend past your natural shoulder or have a wrinkled and disheveled appearance.

The Power of the White Dress shirt

A dress shirt defines you as a person based on how you wear it. Ones mood, character, confidence, and even sense of style can be determined by a mans dress shirt. When looking for the perfect tie to tie or tying your favorite bow tie the dress shirt can make it pop or not. Regardless if it’s a hand made dress shirt, a men’s fitted dress shirt, the staple color that must be in your wardrobe is the white dress shirt. Quite frankly I would recommend that you own a few white dress shirts.  Nonetheless, no matter the occasion it is important to dress correctly and fashionably.

White is the most common dress shirt and is often define as a color of perfection, purity, innocence and completion. White dress shirts can be worn to any occasion because of its versatility. It’s ideal in any situation and always recommended to wear for interviews. A white dress shirt was considered the epitome of fashion brilliance and presumably should be as common as owning a pair of socks. The things you should be aware in regards of a men’s white dress shirt is

1. The potential visibility when you begin to sweat.

2. Stain that typically produces on the collar.

3. More likely to get to get spots or stains no matter the activity. 

Due to the power of the white dress shirt you can easily dress it up with a Blazer and a pair of slacks or chinos. You can also pair it up with slacks, suspenders and dress shoes/loafers. The casual shirt wearer can wear it with some jeans and some clean looking dress boots/or even sneakers with no tie. Style is more about know what to wear, when to wear and how to wear it. Here at Sharp Crisp Clean we aim to educate the mind that leads to confidence and poise when the attire is on point. 

The power of this color dress shirt of course can be worn with suits and brings the look of cleanliness. The men’s white dress shirt brings the same aura as a freshly new haircut or tape! Below is one of my favorite bow ties that elicites style, enduce compliments, exudes amazing energy and makes you Live Sharp Stay Crisp Look Clean.

Suit up Right

If you suit up right you will be #SharpCrispClean day and night.  A man's wardrobe should always  contain a variety of professional attire. A nice tailored #SharpCrispClean suit should be at the top of the list for every gentleman in the world. A wise man once said, 

Clothes and manners do not make the man; but when he is made, they greatly improve his appearance.
— Arthur Ashe

In reference towards an earlier blog " What Women Want" women loves a man in a tailored suit, so fellas take note to what is said in this blog and run with it. 

Professionalism, sharpness, confidence and standing out above the rest is what a man in a  #SCC suit exudes. In order to know what to buy and wear one must ask himself three questions, 1. Does the suit  suit you?  2. Are you wearing the suit correctly? 3. Does the suit fit the occasion? These questions will always lead an individual in the right direction in regards to acquiring the right suit.  Before understanding the details one must know the basics!! Class is in session, so lets educate!! Thank me later

Single Button Suit 

The one button suit can be worn  to any special moments of your life except for interviews. The classic one button is normally considered  in reference towards dinner jackets and shawl lapels. Any individual can pull off this exquisite suit and maximize the complete look, when worn properly. The button of your jacket should be fasten while standing and unbutton when sitting down.

Two Button Suit

Undeniably,  the most well know style of suits is the two button suit. It looks amazing and it fits every occasion. Regardless of weight and height every gentleman can wear a two button suit. The proper way to wear a two button is to always button the top button while unfastening only when sitting down. 

Three Button Suit

The three button suit is a timeless look and has been worn for occasions that do not require a specific professional or formal attire. The last button should absolutely be open and when sitting down all should be unbuttoned. The suit is worn more so by the bold and fit's taller individuals.

Double Breasted 

Double Breasted suits are classified as the suit you wear when your confidence is high, a fresh haircut and a great sense of style. The double breasted suit is the kid in middle school that everyone loves sometimes and hates others. This suit is in and out of style but when done correctly, eyes will gaze in amazement. Most double breasted suits have a peak lapel and can be worn to professional settings. (Not Interviews) The top button should be fastened only. * Inside the suit should be fastened as well hence the name double breasted.
