Not many men wear suits given Manila’s weather condition. But for actor-turned-blogger AJ Dee, the heat is certainly no obstacle when pulling off a tailored, dapper look. For this week’s menswear picks, we trolled through his Instagram account (@thefilodapper) to get tips on how men can wear this classic ensemble for everyday affairs. Let’s get started!
Tip #1 - Wear grey for a day.
Black suits are just way too expected. Rise above the rest of the work force in a suit that’s light and breezy.
Tip #2 - Opt for a double-breasted jacket.
Switch it up with a modern double-breasted jacket in a slimmer cut that’s reminiscent of the ‘70s.
Tip #3 - Keep prints subtle.
Break the monotony of a solid-colored suit by incorporating prints into your fabric choice.
Tip #4 - Steer clear of stark white.
Anything too white borders on looking like a doctor’s coat. Off white and beige would be your best options.
Tip #5 - Dress it down with a tee and a pair of sneakers.
Feeling a little casual? Ditch the crisp button-down and the oxfords and just kick it back with a tee and a pair of sneaks.
Tip #6- Brown is the new neutral.
Stand out from the sea of blacks and blues in a cool brown suit that’s perfect for daytime affairs.
