Hello, everyone. I need your advice. I have been living in the USA since 2015. So, I want to ask for your advice. Actually, I’m from Russia, but Russian people have two big problems: we don’t know how to deal with money and we haven’t sense of style. I am 25 years old. My height is 1.8 meters (70,866 inch), my weight is 85 kilos (187.4 livre). I’m living in Miami. The suits, shirts aren’t necessary me for my job. They are necessary because I like to dress like that. There isn’t a formal dress code on my work. So, I can come even in beach shorts (I was doing it during last several years).


Reaching a new level of earnings, I started to take a look at my appearance. In brief, I would like to know how to dress correctly, what suits are necessary to choose and etc.



1.My first suit is Burberry (https://us.burberry.com/soho-fit-linen-wool-three-piece-suit-p80004191). Can you consult me about brands of suits in range of 1000$-2000$?


2. What brands of shirts can you recommend to buy in range of 100$-300$? What’s better: shirts with cufflinks or shirts without cufflinks.


3. Also what brands of ties can you recommend to buy, can you give advice how to correctly combine ties, where can I find the information about it.


4. My first shoes is Dolce & Gabbana (https://store.dolcegabbana.com/ru/#page=1&start=10). So, what brand of shoes can you recommend me?


5. Usually I buy clothes on sales. For example, by dint of Farfetch and others. So, can you give me information about correct sites to shopping?


6. What kind of colors of suits should I buy if my current suit is navy?


There are examples how I'd like to dress:
2018-12-08 09.40.58.jpg
2018-12-08 09.40.52.jpg

Thank you very much

1. Whatever suit you buy, leave some money left over to tailor it. How it fits you might be the most important part.

2. I'd go with shirts without cufflinks since you're just starting out. I'd find a made-to-measure brand.

4. Dolce and Gabbana is a fashion brand. Stay away from fashion brands. They are worth a lot less than they cost.

6. Blues and greys are the basics, then a black one.

basically you're asking people to tell you everything you need to know to dress better in tailored clothing. It's a lot more than just "here are the best suits, shirts, and shoes for your price range" and "here are websites where you can get the best deals". For example, as mentioned above, how things fit your body are impossible for us to tell. You will find that some brands/models of suits will fit you better than others. It is not helpful for me to tell you that "'Brand X fits me really well" since that may not be true for you. Also, as you learn more you will develop stylistic preferences that are exactly that: preferences.

I strongly recommend that you spend some time going through the threads here and learning for yourself. Visit lots of stores and try things on. Buy things slowly -- you will make mistakes early on.
