MEN’S WARDROBE ESSENTIALS

Things every man should have as part of his wardrobe.  Building blocks, if you will.  I will include some pictures, since I know that some men need a bit more than just hand-holding.

As far as “other accessories” go… “rings”, should only be a wedding ring…lose the bling, bling, pinky ring.  “Handbags”?  Really?  a Man-Purse/Satchel, should be just that, and called a satchel or briefcase.  “Bracelets”?  Please don’t.  No need.  “Shocks”?  Guessing those are Nike Shocks?  But, if you choose to wear a ring, carry a handbag, and wear a bracelet…all the more power to you.  Then you surely do not need my tips, or tips that I have found…but maybe you just need a bit of humor in your life, in that case, keep reading. 😉

THE TIE GUIDE

I love this tie…pair with a white or light blue dress shirt and a dark navy suit.  Does Not get better than this.  I may even prefer this to a pink tie.  Well, almost.  Patrick will be sporting this at Mer’s graduation!

And Kevin will be wearing this tie at Meredith’s graduation.  #welldressedobrienboys

Just in time for Prom…should a dashing young man choose to go with a “real” bow tie.

    Thank you, TOB! A ‘Manic Monday’ blog without a pic of George Clooney is just …. well…. it’s just not as fun!
