While it is important to have custom suits and dress shirts that are properly measured and well fabricated, a wardrobe is only as good as the habits of the person maintaining it. In this article, we'll discuss the best ways to keep your shirts looking sharp without having to fork over a small fortune to the dry cleaners down the street or hiring a housekeeper to do so.

While it is increasingly common for holiday gatherings and office Christmas parties to be on the casual side, there might be some occasions that require you to dress up a little bit more than normal. Keeping your suits, trousers, and jackets subtle is always a good idea, but you can definitely take more liberties with your ties, vests, and lapel pins, for example. A little style accents to your ensemble can go a long way, and you'll have even more options to play around with when you consider scarves and overcoats if the temperature outside calls for them.
By picking out a suit with various patterns or subtle color contrasts, your wardrobe may in fact gain an extra notch above everyone else's. But sometimes people don't quite know where to begin in selecting a particular color scheme or style that will look best on them. What looks stunning on someone else may look lackluster on you and vice versa, so in this piece, we seek to give you some brief style tips on how to go about selecting suits with patterns and color schemes that will accentuate rather than detract from your own personal style.
A sport coat can enhance your personal style for occasions that don't quite require a full suit, and they can also add a degree of professionalism to casual dress where a full suit might be inappropriate. While it's sometimes difficult to determine what falls in the grey areas of semi-casual and semi-formal attire, sport coats will almost always help and never hurt your personal style.
Many fashion trends and garments that evolve tend to replace the more archaic one over time, but this is not so with single- and double-breasted suit jackets. In this next section, we'll tell you how these different jacket types came into being, and why both (rather than one over the other) still exist today.
When it comes to neckwear for formal events, neckties are by far the most popular choice. Bow ties, however, still have a very rich history and are widely used in more formal dress codes such as black-tie and white-tie settings that require a tuxedo. This guide is here to help you master your skills with a bow tie.
Picking the right material for your custom suit can seem like a daunting task. In addition to the various styles, colors, and lapels that are made available on custom suits, there is also a great deal of variety when it comes to the fabric that holds it all together. While wool is generally considered the gold standard when it comes to suits and formal attire, some people swear by linen or even silk. Many others who buy suits directly off the rack may not even consider the fabric at all or have the mindset that it really doesn't matter. But as we will reveal in this article, it certainly does matter, perhaps more so than any other aspect of a custom-tailored suit.
Not all vests are created equal. With a variety of styles and fabric options available, it can be sometimes hard to differentiate between what is acceptable at the office and what should be worn only on the golf course. In this article, we'll give you a rundown of the various common vest types, and which to wear to look your best!
While bow ties are generally reserved for the most formal occasions such as black-tie dinners and weddings, the necktie is by far the most common form of neckwear in formal and professional worlds. And believe us when we say that this is an absolute godsend. However, the tie you decide to wear with a suit has the potential to make or break your entire formal ensemble. In this guide, we'll give you all the tools you'll need to increase your style sensibilities by using nuanced subtleties in the way you knot your neckties.
Fall is just around the corner, and we will ensure that you get into a custom suit that is not only stylish but also comfortable and warm for the latter part of the year. Here at Enzo Custom, we want to make sure that you stay warm without looking like you rummaged through a box that's been sitting in your closet for 10 years, and our style tips will keep you looking sharp, even when the weather is dull and dreary.
If you are starting to build a wardrobe with various tuxedos, suits, pastel sport coats, and other formal evening ensembles, having a decent selection of shoes on hand can be equally important, especially as your rotation of clothes becomes more sophisticated. In this article, we will give you all the style tools you'll need to pick the right shoes for the right outfit every single time.
