Have you ever heard the saying “The devil is in the details?” If you haven’t what that means is details are what make anything truly great. That goes for a presentation, a book, a blog, or a meal. And the same holds true for your clothing.
A solid white shirt is always a safe move to make but what if you decide you don’t want to be safe today? Finding a quality shirt with subtle details that make it look great with your suits is not always easy but it is rewarding when they come together. I love a nice gingham shirt or one with subtle windowpanes underneath a solid suit. Pair the shirt with an impeccable tie and you’ve won. But too many subtle details will quickly turn you from a runner up for GQ Man of the Year to a walking optical illusion. Don’t be that guy. Simple, subtle details. Not too loud. Just something to catch someone’s eye. Who knows? You might get a compliment. Or, better yet, a job offer.
