We've all seen it – the jacket buttoned all the way up, or the man that's left the stitching on his pocket unpicked. These are the style faux pas we see being made every single day, and they must stop now. Read, and if you know someone that's guilty, send them this link…
Deep veesNever. Ever.
Don't wear striped ties with striped shirtsUnless you're the secretary of your local golf club. And even then…
Head-to-foot whiteUnless you're on a beach or you’re the Messiah.
Tucking in your polo shirtWe're looking at you, America.
Never turn up your jeansUnless you’re name is Leo and you live in LA, then you can do whatever the hell you want
Ditch the camel coloured beltEspecially with a dark suit or separates. It’ll make you look short and fat
**The Age of the Mankle is over ** Put on some damn socks
Speaking of which, pop socks are okay……to play tennis in.

Square-toed shoesJust no.
**A clean, pressed white shirt ** It's often all you need
The bottom of your trousers should skim the top of your shoesIf you’re showing an inch of sock, get them altered.
However, your suit sleeves should show some shirtIf it’s skirting the first knuckle of your thumb, they’re way too long.
If your trousers have belt loops, wear a beltOr buy them with side adjusters (DAKS are the best)
Buy some informal shirtsNothing says salaryman like French cuffs worn with jeans.
**When packing, remember: one on, one off, one in the wash ** You don’t need any more clothes.
"Riviera chic". NOnot even on the Riviera.
A pre-tied bowtie is fineA wing-collared dress shirt is not.
Beware the "man-garnish"The vintage tie clip, the collar pin, the five-fold pocket square are fine, just never all at the same time.
Socks should match your trousers, not your shoesUnless you’re wearing shorts. In which case, wear the socks your mum put out for you.
