Summer Fashion Advice For Men

What? Summer fashion advice now, in the middle of August?

Okay, so it may be too late to rearrange and restock your summer wardrobe, but a quick glance around on my way to work brought my attention to one of the most important events of summer: The End of Summer Clearout Sale!

Fine men's wear shops all over this city (and yours too, no doubt) are busy making room in their shops for the fall arrivals, so if you have room in your closet, time to stock up!

The Areas of my Expertise: What Tall Men Should Wear

I'm not the world's pre-eminent fashionista -- I'm not the guy who can make any person look good, regardless of their body type.

In fact, I don't know much about the current state of the fashion industry except how it pertains to me.

I know what looks good on me, and by extension, I know what clothes look good on tall men.

I'm 6'5" and 175 pounds, and frankly, guys like us have it easier than most. Sure, it may be next to impossible to find shirts with sleeves that are long enough and don't look like a tent around our waists. And pants with a 36 inch inseam and a 34 inch waist aren't everywhere.

If you're shaped like me, or just want to know how to dress a bit better (much of the information here applies to other people too!), then stay tuned. I've got some good stuff coming.

And by all means, ask any questions you may have!

I've got one for you: what's your secret to dressing well?
