    Attention to detail is what makes the difference and allows you one way to differentiate yourself from the competition.  The following points are intended to encourage you to notice the detail and think about it when shopping and preparing yourself for an important event.  Take note so that you make the best lasting impression.

    1. For a polished appearance, the length of a man’s tie must graze his belt buckle. The following images show you the desired look as well as what’s considered acceptable.

    2. Lately, I’ve noticed women wearing their jacket sleeves so long, that in some cases you can barely see their fingers. Sleeves should be hemmed at the wrist.

    3. A Gig Line is the vertical alignment of one’s shirt or blouse buttons with the belt buckle and pant zipper. If a woman is wearing a skirt or slacks, the line will stop at the waist. The key is to keep everything in a straight line down the front of the body.
