2016 Fashion Resolutions

January 10, 2016

800px-New-Year_Resolutions_listHappy New Year! What happened to 2015? I blinked and it was gone. And now we arrive at 2016 and my annual fashion resolutions. Personally, I have a resolution to write more and I’m still thinking through others. If you have not set any goals for 2016, then you have come to the right place. In keeping with my annual tradition, I challenge you to set a goal or two for this year. No need to go over the top or get unrealistic. Keep it simple and achievable. To jumpstart your thinking or to just give you a resolution, I have prepared four suggestions for you. If you don’t like these, then choose something … anything … no matter how small … to achieve. So here goes. Repeat after me:

  1. 1. In 2016, I will find and wear a must-have jacket. An essential for every man, a classic jacket provides you with an easy way to instantly improve literally any outfit. For a quick trip to the store, throw on jeans, a t-shirt and your trusty jacket. For more on what constitutes the right one, read The must-have jacket.
  2. In 2016, I will buy clothes that fit. So many men wear the wrong size clothes. The epidemic has to end. It’s as simple as first understanding your proper fit and second trying on clothes at the store.
  3. In 2016, I will purchase new socks of varying styles and colors and wear them. Make a conscious effort to update your socks. This underappreciated accessory can gift your look with that extra something special. And, people do notice. I get compliments on my socks all the time. Oh, and throw away your white socks.
  4. In 2016, I will find at least one fantastic deal. I challenge you to track down something really great – of high quality – of greater worth. Then, get it for less than 30% of the regular price. Treat it like a game or a mission. Countdown to the end of the year – can you do it? For the training in how to bargain hunt, click here.

So there you have it. Now go out there and achieve some goals!

If none of these grab you, then peruse through the resolutions of years past.




Bargain Season Recap

This year, I kept it simple focusing on the basics. I stocked up on quality t-shirts, socks, belts, shorts and underwear. So, I do not have any purchased show stoppers to share. Rather, I will share just a couple of my new additions, however basic they may be:

Michael Kors t-shirt – $75 down to $13.






Cole Haan casual belt – $75 down to $13 as well.





A few other deals:

Hart Schaffner Marx polo – $100 down to $20.

Banana Republic sweater – $90 down to $30.

Calvin Klein shorts – $70 down to $8.

    Nice post! I just saw it was written a year ago and would thus like the chance to ask how your fashion resolutions worked out in 2016?
