THE #ASKAW SHOW: EPISODE 10 W/ Andrew Snavely FROM PrimerMagazine.com

Have a question you’d like me to answer? Ask in the comments of the above youtube video.

In this episode, we answer:

Q: I’m in my late 40’s and think tailored clothing will make me look “too hip” for my age. Thoughts?

A: If you’re using your age as an excuse to not wear clothing that fits your body, you’re doing it wrong! See my men’s clothing fit guide for how your clothes should fit – no matter your age!

Q: Does Ashley do interior design/styling as well?

A: No. Only clothing. I’m horrible at everything else, basically!

Q: How do I approach and ask out a girl in my class?

A: See the video for our detailed answer.

Q: What colors work well with Asian skin tones?

A: Richer, darker colors are best. Watch video above for details.

Have a question you’d like me to answer? Ask in the comments of the above youtube video or send me an email.

In this episode, we answer:

Q: I’ve lost a significant amount of weight and now all of my clothes are clownishly large on me. Can a tailor make my clothes fit again or should I just buy all new ones?

A: See the video above for the answer and my men’s clothing fit guide for how your clothes should fit.

Q: I watched your T-Shirt video and if I have a nice looking tee with a pretty minimalist design, does that hinder a look the same way a straight up graphic tee would?

A: Short answer – sort of. See the video for the longer answer.

Q: As a shorter man (5’6″), I find it difficult to find stuff that fits me and looks good. I was hoping you can provide some general style tips for shorter men.

A: See TheModestMan.com for a great site for shorter men style. But in our experience, as long as your clothing fits properly, there’s not much else to worry about.

Q: I recently picked up a Briefcase in a navy/ tan leather color way, would I match my wallet/watch/belt/etc. To the bag? What would you do in my situation?

A: Don’t think about it too much. Andrew is less of a stickler here, but I am more of a stickler. See video for details.

In this episode, we answer:

Q: Getting married this summer and my soon-to-be wife is wearing a coral gown, so what can I wear to compliment her dress?

A: Get a Gray or Navy Notch Lapel Suit (make sure it fits properly!), a white semi-spread collardress shirt (also make sure that it fits properly), black, navy or charcoal tie, white pocket square and some black dress shoes.

Q: I’ve recently put on weight, how can I still tuck in my shirts and hide my stomach?

A: Get some slimming undershirts and boxer briefs! My clients have used and love these! Also, lose the weight quickly. My male friends have all used this technique with much success!

Q: Is buying raw denim worth the extra money?

A: NO! Get these wonderfully broken-in dark wash jeans instead.

Q: I’m pale and would like to incorporate more color into my wardrobe. What should I do?

A: If you’ve already got the basic colors for polo shirts, t-shirts, etc., then go for cooler colors like blues and greens. If you were to wear reds, yellow and oranges (warmer colors), it won’t look good with your skin tone.

Q: I’m from Hawaii and want to start layering but I’m worried I’ll be too hot.

A: Get a short sleeved button up shirt, leave the top few buttons undone and layer it with a t-shirt underneath. Throw on a pair of chino pants, cuffed at the bottom, with some white sneakers and you’ll look amazing. If you work indoors, then you can possibly get away with wearing a lighter jacket, like a Harrington jacket, but it’ll still be a little rough when you’re not indoors.

The #AskAW Show: Episode 07

In this episode I answer:

Q: How to wear boat shoes?

A: Pair them with Dark Wash Jeans, Chinos, a nice belt, and either a Polo Shirt or Oxford Button Down Dress Shirt.

Q: Looking to buy a peacoat online, how do I ensure it fits properly over a suit or blazer?

A: First, you should never wear a peacoat over a suit or blazer. Second, buy your normal size plus the next size up and return the one that doesn’t fit the best.
