Hello and welcome back!

I know we’ve been talking about a more sophisticated look with the navy blazer and all, but let’s take a look at something that’s in every guy’s closet: the t-shirt. We all have them, in numbers.

Chances are for most guys, who hold on to those t-shirts like dear friends, your favorite t-shirt doesn’t fit you well. Maybe you’ve recently lost weight or got that t-shirt when you were 15 and you’re pushing 35. Sorry to say it guys, but frame it, hand it down, or give it away; that shirt doesn’t fit.

We’ll get a bit more into “fit” next time, when the staffers show you good fit vs. bad fit!
