If you follow these 5 tips now, you’ll be way better off than you were yesterday.
Why: There’s a reason cargo shorts have becomes a meme by itself; they’re just that ugly. This is arguably the most important point on this list. The golden rule of shorts is that they should, at the absolute longest, land right at your knee cap. Any longer and you look like you just time travelled from 1992. Of course, don’t take this too far and walk around in running shorts that double as a speedo. Stick to this and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a style icon!
Pro tip: Unless you’re actually playing basketball, keep those five pairs of B-Ball shorts you know you currently own tucked away deep in your drawer.
Why This Year’s September Issues Are A BIG DEAL.

Why: The white New Balance shoes are for grandpa. I shouldn’t need to say why Crocs are bad news. Mandals – there are very few situations in which mandals are appropriate, and even in those situations, 99% of mandals on the market are cringeworthy, so you’re better off avoiding them. Dress shoes should have an almond shape at the toe (see picture below); the square-toe invokes images of an unsuccessful circus clown. Boat shoes are groovy if you’re on a boat or surrounded by your pastel-laden fraternity brothers, but should otherwise be avoided..
Pro Tip: Black dress shoes are the most formal, dark brown are the least.
Why: Plain colors are never out of style. There are plenty of graphic tees that look fine, but if you’ve read this far, you’re not yet ready to be the judge of a good one. Longer sleeves on t-shirts look ridiculous. Fit is everything; you could have the coolest shirt in town, but if it fits poorly, it still looks bad. Optimal fit is when the shirt lightly hugs your stomach and sides.
Pro Tip: Start out with basic colors, such as blacks, greys, whites, blues, and reds; they tend to be safe colors and will match with a lot of other pieces.
Why: Slim is in, whether you like it or not. It is safe to stick to slim cuts, which hug your leg fairly tight, but not so tight that you can see an outline of the entire leg. For older guys (40s+) a little baggier is ok, but don’t go baggier than a straight cut. A basic wardrobe of pants should consist of a pair of jeans, and one or two pairs of chinos and joggers. Grey, Burgundy, and white are safe colors for chinos, which can look a bit too formal if you go for black.
Pro Tip: Avoid Khaki at first. Khaki itself looks fine, but most guys wear it incorrectly; it is a casual item, not a shirt-tucked-in with a tie piece.
Why: Oh hey, your new look turned some heads and now you’re in a position where it’s time to take your stylish clothes off. But wait, whats that…? Your new friend turned and ran at the sight of your tighty-whities? Huh. All you need remember for this rule is two words: Boxer. Briefs. Why wear anything else? Not only are they the most stylish choice, they’re the most functional as well. Poll after Poll has been published asking both men and women what male underwear they find most attractive, and the undisputed winner is boxer briefs. A pair of Hanes boxer briefs will beat out some Tommy Hilfiger boxers any day.
Pro Tip: No one has ever looked bad in Calvin Klein boxer briefs.
I am currently a Student at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, and will graduate in 2019 with a major in Psychology clustered in Neuroscience, and a minor in Business Administration. I intend on moving into the music industry after college and eventually getting into talent management, A&R, or event management. No matter what I choose to do, I strive to be a part of pushing industry innovation further than ever before.
