7 Items Every Well-Dressed Man Should Own

 

Tailored Clothing

It’s said that clothes don’t make the man, and while that is true, there are things one can do to make an outfit take on some of the heavy lifting. Things like playing with color, texture, and most importantly, fit. A good fit goes a long way to turn a decent ensemble into great looking one. That’s why at Original Stitch we take pride in customizing every shirt, pant, and suit jacket or blazer to your unique size and shape. Getting the perfect fit is as easy as using our Bodygram tech to digitally and accurately record your measurements!

A Basic Mani-Pedi Kit

The little details can make all the difference between a well-dressed man, and a man who is well put together. The tools to keep an eye out for in a readymade kit are as follows: a nail cutter, cuticle trimmers, a nail file, dead skin plies, and an oblique knife. A basic mani-pedi kit runs anywhere from 10 to 25 dollars but the end results will have you feeling like a million bucks.

Mattress Cover

Mattress covers are important for many reasons. They can prolong the life of your mattress, keep it free of stains and other fluids, and most importantly, protect you and others from dust mites, bed bugs, and all manner of allergens. Cleaner mattresses promote better sleep, and better sleep leads to a bright eyed and bushy tailed you.

Dedicated Face Wash

Using a dedicated facial cleanser is a fantastic way to clear away any buildup without subjecting such sensitive skin to harsher chemicals found in bar soap and body wash. It’s also a great way to keep your face feeling hydrated throughout the day. Healthy skin is happy skin. A face washing routine will do wonders to keep you looking youthful as the years wear on.

Dedicated Moisturizer

We said it above but the sentiment is worth repeating: healthy skin is happy skin. Your skin’s oil production peaks around mid-day and produces far less oils at night. Those oils help keep your skin hydrated by slowing down the loss of water through actions like sweating. Using a moisturizer before bed will replenish any water loss felt throughout the day, resulting in a firmer, more supple feeling.

Beard Oil/Aftershave

Anyone growing or maintaining a beard who doesn’t have beard oil is doing it all wrong. Beard oils are an essential way to both soften and strengthen beard hair. A good oil will replenish your facial follicles with natural vitamins and minerals while keeping the skin underneath from drying out and feeling itchy. Aftershave, for those who partake in a clean face look, does wonders to keep your skin looking healthy. It reduces swelling, itching, and closes pores to prevent dirt and bacteria from causing nasty blemishes or breakouts.

Electric Shaver

Another way to help prevent nasty blemishes – such as razor burn – or breakouts is by using an electric shaver. Some electric shavers even have a space to add moisturizing agents that coat the skin as you groom. Electric shavers don’t cut as close as you’d like? Well then look into wet shaving. Wet shaving with an electric shaver will give you that baby-skin smooth closeness while also preventing in-grown hairs.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

3 Dress Shirt and Shorts Combinations Great for Summer Vibes

 

Let’s start with an easy concept: dress shirts with dress shorts. These two garments are easy to pair and can facilitate a great alternative motif that can be worn as far up the “is this appropriate?” ladder as summertime work function attire. But just because you’re going for a less formal feel with shorts doesn’t mean you can half-assess it. Clean lines and a good fit will work wonders to sell the look. Dress up the ensemble with a lightweight summer blazer and go sockless on the shoes (boaters or loafers for work events) and you’re off to a great start.


For more leisure activities try opting for solid colored, lightweight, dress shirts with patterned boardshorts and flip flops (or vice versa). What we love about this look is that it comes off as very well put together for something as simple as a day at the beach, and it does so without trying too hard. There is a good chance you have all the necessary pieces to put this recommendation to use already. Linen shorts also work well for this style. If you’re unsure how to wear this look then start small. Wear a white dress shirt with your favorite pair of boardshorts. Add a sturdy pair of flip fops. Accessorize to taste and that’s it. You’re ready for some pool/lake/beachside lounging.

If all else fails to spark your fashion interest, then try jean shorts, or Jorts, for short. Jorts can do it all. They make it easier to pair more rugged button-down shirts like denim or cargo variants. They can also be given an urban slant when worn open with graphic tees and sneakers. Jean shorts are as versatile as their long pant counterparts, but what they lack in coverage, they more than make up for with heat beating summertime style.

 

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

3 Dress Shirt and Shorts Combinations Great for Summer Vibes

3 Dress Shirt and Shorts Combinations Great for Summer Vibes

 

Let’s start with an easy concept: dress shirts with dress shorts. These two garments are easy to pair and can facilitate a great alternative motif that can be worn as far up the “is this appropriate?” ladder as summertime work function attire. But just because you’re going for a less formal feel with shorts doesn’t mean you can half-assess it. Clean lines and a good fit will work wonders to sell the look. Dress up the ensemble with a lightweight summer blazer and go sockless on the shoes (boaters or loafers for work events) and you’re off to a great start.


For more leisure activities try opting for solid colored, lightweight, dress shirts with patterned boardshorts and flip flops (or vice versa). What we love about this look is that it comes off as very well put together for something as simple as a day at the beach, and it does so without trying too hard. There is a good chance you have all the necessary pieces to put this recommendation to use already. Linen shorts also work well for this style. If you’re unsure how to wear this look then start small. Wear a white dress shirt with your favorite pair of boardshorts. Add a sturdy pair of flip fops. Accessorize to taste and that’s it. You’re ready for some pool/lake/beachside lounging.

If all else fails to spark your fashion interest, then try jean shorts, or Jorts, for short. Jorts can do it all. They make it easier to pair more rugged button-down shirts like denim or cargo variants. They can also be given an urban slant when worn open with graphic tees and sneakers. Jean shorts are as versatile as their long pant counterparts, but what they lack in coverage, they more than make up for with heat beating summertime style.

 

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.
