All right – let’s get into it and break down the ten clothing hacks you need to know.

1. Have Your Trousers Altered To Stop Pocket Flair

Do your chinos or dress pants look like you’ve got ears on your hips? Gaping pockets making your hips look wider?

That’s most likely for one of three reasons: your pants are too tight, you’re wearing them too close to the hips, or you chose the wrong pocket style.

Pants pockets come in three flavors:

Vertical pockets – often seen on dress pants. This style is the most likely to flare out if the pants don’t fit correctly. To fix this, either have them tailored to fit you better, or take the nuclear option and stitch the pockets shut.

Front pockets – a slanted style seen on some dress slacks. Choose these over vertical pockets – they’re much less likely to flare out.

Western pockets – also known as horizontal pockets. Commonly seen on jeans and chinos, this one will not flare out at all and is my favorite pocket style.

2. Avoid Shoulder Nipples By Storing Shirts properly

We’ve gotten rid of your hip ears, now let’s get rid of your shoulder nipples. You know when you take a polo or t-shirt off a hanger and it’s got a bump on each shoulder point? That’s because it should never have been on a hanger.

You don’t need complex clothing hacks to avoid shoulder nipples on all of your shirts.

To avoid shoulder nipples, HANG your woven shirts and FOLD your knitted shirts.

What’s the difference? Woven fabrics don’t stretch as easily as knits. Woven shirts are generally dress shirts or button-downs. Knits are your t-shirts, polos, and sweaters.

If you do hang your knitwear, pick a cedar wood hanger with broad shoulders like this.

If you really want to hang your knits, choose hangers with a wider shoulder and don’t leave them hanging for more than a couple of weeks. Otherwise you’re going to start stretching the fabric.

3. Don’t Go Overboard With Color

I like to equate color with salt. You add a bit of it to pull out the flavor of the dish, not to overpower it.

Use neutrals (including the more muted shades of blue) as a main dish, and then add bold pops of color as an accent.

For example, a mid blue sports jacket with a light blue shirt and a white pocket square looks a little bland. But season it with an orange pocket square and it brings out the flavor of the outfit.

That takes us to the next of my clothing hacks… accessories.

4. Use Accessories To Enhance Your Overall Look

The right accessory can level up your outfit. A watch can make a simple outfit feel complete.

A sports jacket without a pocket square looks naked – so does a French cuff shirt without cuff links. If you like something, don’t be afraid to bring it into your style.

5. Use The Right Fit To Appear Taller

Choose the right fits and colors for you. If you’ve got short legs, which a lot of shorter guys do, you’re gonna want to lengthen your leg line.

Want to look taller? Match your belt and shoes with your pants. The unbroken color will make your legs look longer.

Another of my favorite clothing hacks for shorter guys is to never wear an oversized jacket – especially a sports jacket, suit jacket, or even a leather jacket.

The normal rule of thumb for the length of a jacket is that it should cover the bottom curvature of your buttocks, but if you’re a shorter guy it can be an inch higher. That will look better for your proportions.

6. Only Dry Clean Your Clothing When It’s Dirty

I know this one seems too obvious to be on a list of little-known clothing hacks, but a lot of guys who don’t wear suits very often will wear them once and then send them off to the cleaners. The problem is, dry-cleaning is very rough on your clothing.

Think of your clothing like a video game character – it’s only got so many lives.

So with the suits, sports jackets, blazers, even your nice sweaters – you only need to dry clean them when they’re dirty. This will probably be in the neighborhood of every 15 to 20 wears or once a season.

Another quick tip – always dry clean wool clothing before you store it. If you do that and then put it in an airtight container, you won’t need to worry about moth damage.

7. Make Your Luggage Lighter By Packing Strategically

As you’re packing your bag to get on a plane, put the heaviest pair of shoes you plan to bring aside and wear them for the flight. It will make your luggage a bit lighter, and there will be one less weighty item in your bag that can put creases in your clothes.

Pack lighter pairs of shoes in the bottom of your luggage, and be sure to use a shoe bag so you don’t have to worry about any dust or dirt getting on your clothes.

8. Understand The Difference Between Straight Lacing and Cross Lacing

Straight lacing is always going to be more formal. This is what you want on your dress shoes.

Cross lacing shoes adds stability. It will hold better so they’re less likely to need tying again, but it should be reserved for casual wear.

9. Use The Right Fit To Appear More Muscular

If you’ve got very sloped shoulders or a relatively slim upper body, learn to layer clothing in such a way as to create the illusion of broader shoulders.

Contrasting fabric or details such as epaulets will also make your shoulders look broader.

If you’ve got a really big upper body one of your best clothing hacks is to look for Raglan sleeves, which will give you a more sloped shoulder.

10. Learn How To Spot High-Quality Menswear

So you’re out shopping and you think you’ve found an amazing deal, but you’re not sure if this shirt, or pair of shoes, or pair of jeans is really going to last.

The key to identifying quality is to look at the materials that were used and the way they were put together.

Check the small details – the material used for the buttons on a shirt, whether the stitching is tight, and whether there are any loose threads on the inside. If a dress shirt is tightly stitched and well-finished, with mother-of-pearl buttons and removable collar stays, you can be fairly sure the manufacturer hasn’t cut any corners.

Clothing Hacks Summary

  1. Choose front pockets or western pockets to avoid pocket flare.
  2. Hang woven shirts, fold knitted shirts to avoid shoulder nipples.
  3. Use color like a spice – not the main dish.
  4. Level up your outfit with accessories.
  5. To look taller, match your belt, pants, and shoes.
  6. Only dry-clean clothing every 15-20 wears.
  7. Travel in your heavy shoes – pack your light shoes.
  8. Straight lace dress shoes – cross-lace casual shoes.
  9. To look more muscular, use layering, epaulets, or contrast fabric on your shoulders.
  10. To spot good quality, look at the materials and details.

Vincero creates quality men’s watches for a minimal price by sourcing their own materials, from the leather and glass to the Italian marble – and unlike competitors, they hand-check every detail to make sure it’s perfect.
