Jeffrey was another of our model search winners making his debut this month. Let me tell you, this guy knows a thing or two about shopping at Goodwill! He found this Banana Republic two-piece windowpane plaid suit at his local Goodwill Store for $12.99. I asked him to bring it to our photo shoot so I could show him a few tricks to update his bargain-priced classic suit. FYI, every guy should have a suit, or at the very least, a jacket and pair of dress pants. We started with a light blue cotton button down dress shirt that most guys like him already own, and then added some interest with a red and blue paisley necktie. Instead of a vest, we’ve added a rich Concord-grape color merino wool v-neck sweater from Merona. See how it really makes the colors of the tie and suit stand out? To keep the look fashion-forward, Jeff brought in his own dark gray lace up trainers. This is an ensemble that could have been pulled directly from a men’s fashion magazine! All the tones work in harmony yet stand out in a masculine way. Men’s style is all about being up-to-date without being too trendy. Thinking outside the box and not being afraid of playing with color will set you apart from the rest of the guys, just like our model and Goodwill shopper Jeff!
