Leathers Should Match Simply put, leather is AWESOME. But this rule isn’t strict. Two things you should focus on matching are

(1) your shoes and

(2) your belt. Then follow-up by means of the colour of your

(3) watch strap and

(4) leather bag – but only if it’s convenient.

Don’t spend money just for that purpose. And it’s important to remember in this case – the more different the colours of your leathers are, the worse of a match you’ll end up with. So, pairing sleek black boots with a light brown belt is out of the question (unless you cover up the belt). Chocolate brown boots are a better alternative here.

Your black leather footwear can go with a belt that’s any shade of gravy (since gravy is a non-colour). But if you want each leather piece to stand out equally – I suggest finding ONE particular colour you like and stick to it. That’s probably what you’ll need to do if your belt options are limited. Most of us have about 2-3 individual belts at home. Buying more could feel like a waste…

Go for Complementary Over Matching So, if you’re going the “complementary” route – pay attention to the colour wheel. The trick is to ensure the main colours of your wardrobe are as far apart on the colour wheel as possible.

But that doesn’t mean you ought to avoid “matching” altogether. It’s actually safer than “complementary” (as there are cases when people get distracted by a combination of 2+ strong colours you’re wearing). When you’re worried about crossing the line and showing a stark contrast, the fullback is to match your items based on a single colour (like an oxblood belt with oxblood shoes).

In the end, matching = a pretty decent appearance. But it’s not likely going to amaze everybody around you the way a successful “complementary” outfit could. A “bad match” might occur if the colours are closer to each other on the colour wheel, or if there’s more than one bright colour used. But it still beats making random choices and putting no thought! The effort still counts for something.

Few Tips On The Right Glasses For Your Face

Tips for right glasses

1. Contrast — "The shape of your frame should contrast the shape of your face, so if you have rounder features, you want more angular glasses, and if you have more angular features you want to soften them with more curved shapes."

2. Proportion — "In general, you want your frames to be in proportion with the rest of your face. It's different when you are shopping for sunglasses, which tend to be larger for greater coverage, but what looks good as a sunglass will not necessarily look good in optical."

Shine those shoes

Shine your shoes

No matter how nice your shoes are, they can start looking worn and ugly over time if not properly cared for. Here's a quick tutorial on how to properly shine a pair of leather shoes.

If you haven't shined shoes before, don't worry—it's actually really, really simple. You will need a few things beforehand, though, which you can buy very cheaply anywhere from a professional shoe shop to somewhere down the street.
