Rich Men Share Their Wardrobe Tips – Dress Like A Millionaire While On a Budget

People are people. That is a fact. But, some people have been taught the fine art of high society. The social circles in which they associate usually encompass people in politics, finance, and high positions of commerce. They may include people in entertainment who are regularly the focus of the media. For obvious reasons, they are expected to know how to dress appropriately for all situations. They are expected to know how to speak well, and how to carry themselves. Because their interactions are often global, they understand a misspoken word, an incorrect colour worn, and an unthoughtful gesture can be highly offensive in a culture different from their own.

 

Maybe you have just won the Irish lottery and you will be investing your money. This may include travel and introductions to new people. This makes it important to learn from the tips that these rich men have shown us. That is why we are sharing them with you now.

Basic rules to help you fit in

You will need to get familiar with dress codes for men. You may be invited to a lunch that is “casual wear” and your jeans are acceptable. But, “business casual” is something different altogether. Click the code above and discover what the various codes mean. Then look through your wardrobe and discover what can be taken into different situations.

Tip

A medium-weight grey suit with a shirt of light colours and a tie and pocket square that match can take you through your business day and right into drinks after work. Then by changing to a darker tie and pocket square, and if you have bought a bolder shirt, you can go to dinner or even a hot date. This is appropriate for a wedding and most social events. It stops short of being good enough for formal events.

Basics every well-dressed man should have

There is an old saying in the world of high-society, “New money talks, old money whispers” this is the difference between someone who is flashy and someone who is classy. There are some basics (classics) that every man should have, that never go out of style. These are the first purchases you should make.

  • Button-down shirts
  • white
  • Light blue
  • Pinstripe
  • Oxford shoes (real leather)
  • Add a matching belt for extra points
  • Straight-fit jeans
  • 2-button, single-breasted navy jacket
  • Medium grey suit
  • Camel coat
  • Silk tie and pocket square
  • At least two

Tip

Go to a quality menswear shop and buy quality items from professionals. Do not waste your time and money on low-quality merchandise. It is better if you buy a few good pieces that are versatile than to buy a lot of lower-quality pieces. Note: your eye is untrained at this level. You may look at an item and think it looks the same as a nicer piece. But a professional can spot the differences immediately.

Tip

When you shop at a high-end menswear shop, you are dealing with people highly trained in design, fit, and fashion. Trust them. Do not assume you know their job better than they do. They will assume your clothing will be tailored. What man of taste would purchase a nice suit and wear it untailored? Do not be afraid to ask him what accessories will wear best. He will gladly give you his opinion.

Personal grooming

It is not enough to get a good haircut. Yes, a good haircut is required but it is not enough. A well-dressed man must support a look of wealth. His eyebrows, moustache, and beard are styled and trimmed to perfection. His skin is well cared for. His hair is not just styled, but it is in good condition. It is shiny and free of damage. He has regular manicures and pedicures. He respects his body and it shows.

Tip

You should have a regular bi-weekly appointment at your men’s spa. Never wait until you need a treatment to seek one.
