Wearing a suit can be a tough thing for a bloke.
Do it right and you’re Steve McQueen, Don Draper and James Bond all rolled into one. Balls it up and you look like a page boy at a wedding.

There are many more great snippets of advice, including the importance of subtle colouring, getting the size measurements bang on and getting a little bit of tailoring to make tiny adjustments.
