Fabric, Fit and Color
Have you ever wondered why some gentlemen look better than others…NO matter what they wear?
They look better with a suit…they look better wearing a simple polo and a pair of chinos. They even look stylish with a swimming suit!
And no, it’s not because they have a slimmer and athletic body (although, it might make a big difference) or because they’re wearing expensive clothes.
So, what’s the secret?
To me, it’s all about three things: fit, fabric, and color.
It doesn’t matter how much you spend on a garment.
If it doesn’t fit you properly, you’ll never look stylish.
If a garment fits properly, you can look like a million bucks and get a lot of compliments.
Make sure the sleeves are not too long or too short.
Check the length of the trousers (this is a very common mistake)…
And NEVER buy a loose dress shirt. It’ll always look baggy and shapeless.
In other words, fit is KING.
Massimo’s Tip: Make sure you have AT LEAST one crisp custom-tailored white shirt and one light blue to use for special occasions.
Fabric is the most important component of a garment.
You should choose a high-quality fabric that is breathable, durable, and comfortable to wear.
Wool is known for being a great fabric for winter…but very few people know that lightweight wool (known as “Fresco Lana”) is a great fabric for summer as well.
Linen is perfect for summer. It keeps you fresh and cool throughout the day.
And cotton is a good breathable fabric that can be used for all seasons.

Color is very important because it flatters the individual and adds a personal touch to the outfit so that you can stand out from the crowd.
Dark grey and navy blue are the timeless (and safest) colors for a suit. You can never go wrong with them.
Light grey, light blue, camel, and white are perfect for spring and summer.
Once you are aware of these three crucial key elements of style, you will be able to dress better and honestly express yourself with confidence…and style!
