2. Ditch The Hoodie For A Cardigan
Daniel Craig wore one in Quantum of Solace and he looked great in it. Enough said.

3. Don’t Wear Athletic Clothing Unless You’re Working Out
Own just a week’s worth of gym clothes. You don’t really need more than that, anyway.
4. Iron Your Shirts
5. Upgrade Your Jeans
Give waxed, wool or ripped a try if you’re sick and tired of not standing out. Here’s a video to save you a few bucks if you want to wax your own jeans.
6. Don’t Wear Your Jacket In The House
What ever you do… do everything around the house without your jacket on. It’s a great morning habit to get into and doing this will preserve the lapel crease and keep you looking sharp all day.
7. Only Wear Clothes That Fit
Look, I get it. But you’re not in college anymore. Stop wearing clothes that do not fit your body size. I don’t care what she says.
8. When in Trouble… Find Someone With A Cool Style.

“Whether he’s an actor, athlete, or blogger – we all have those guys we look at and say, ‘He always looks cool.’ Having a mentor to observe and emulate is an easy way to start feeling more confident about your style.”
9. Go For A Slimmer Dress Shirt
Please leave the baggy shirts alone. In fact, this is one of the areas we cover extensively in the Kinowear bible.
10. Stick To Your Budget
You don’t need to spend a fortune. You could still look sharp even on a tight budget. Try hitting up your local shops (not big box) for the best deal.
