Last time, we talked a lot about dressing for the Post-Pandemic world, the importance behind it, and what garments you should have in your wardrobe specifically. We know lot of us have gained a couple of Covid Pounds throughout the pandemic, and that a lot of our clothes now fit way too tight. Here, we’re going to show you exactly what to look for, and how to start your wardrobe fresh.
The jacket of your suit should not be pulling in the midsection or the arms. This is a sign of a suit that has once fit you is now too tight, and will cause discomfort to you as you wear it, and also will cause it to wear out faster. Your arms should sit comfortably inside the sleeve.
Most of us, unfortunately, gain weight within the waist and midsection, causing the first of our garments to be rendered too tight being the pants. Your pants should sit comfortably and drape smoothly in the front with little to now wrinkling or overlapping, depending on the fabric of course. If your pants pull on your waist too much and cause red marks due to tightness, it is time you begin making new custom clothing.
Your pants should not be giving you a wedgie. Period. Most of you won’t gain weight in this area over time, as this is a less common issue. However, it is still important to talk about as it does happen. If your pants feel uncomfrotable when you sit, or pull way too much in the backside, it is a sign that you need new clothing!
We are firm believers that if you are starting your wardrobe from scratch and from the absolute beginning, that your first pieces should be solid pieces that interchange with each other to create more outfits, giving you more wardrobe versatility. This allows you to extend the value of your garments and ultimately lower the cost per outfit. We believe the two staple suits that do this are the grey and blue suits. These suits can be interchanged with many different shirts, t-shirts, sweaters, and pants to be worn formally, and casually, as seen below!
