A client told me a story and I have her permission to repeat it. She was at the beach and glanced towards the ocean and did a double take. There was a man who looked naked below the waist (no it wasn’t a secluded or a nudist beach). On the second look he was wearing swimmers in a colour and pattern that from a distance, merged with his skin colour and gave the impression that he was naked.
So stand as far away from the mirror as possible and check how your swimmers look as well as checking out that shirt pattern and your physique.
And if necessary, use the same 3 step process I’ve given in the women’s ‘Modern Dressing’ category.
