Ask a Stylist: Style Tips on Pocket Square Etiquette, Silver/Grey Suit Options, and Shoe Quantities

A few weeks ago I started a Style Tips Q&A called “Ask a Stylist” to help alleviate some of the men’s style concerns our customers and readers have.

However I’m not a stylist, which is my best excuse for not filmed in this video blog segment. Also, the last time I was put in front of a camera was at a Virgin Mobile party where I made a complete drunk fool of myself. I don’t do well on the spotlight.

After spending a few weeks chasing Melissa down with a camcorder (to no avail), I went to our next best person, Vylan. She’s one of our top stylists and owner of Better Man Inc., a personal stylist company. And she rocks on camera.

Email your style questions to tips@gsmen.com so we can help put to rest some big questions you may have!

“One of life’s great conundrums.. Tie, Pocket Square, or Bow-tie? And more importantly, Pocket Square + Tie? Or Pocket square when you’re going sans neckwear? What’s the correct etiquette, @gotstyle?”

-John E.

“I have a silvery/grey, cotton/silk suit. What colour shirt and shoes do you suggest?”

-Ian L.

“How many pairs of a shoes should a man have?”

-Michael H.

Next week, we’ll run a question from Stephen C. (sorry we ran out of time on recording day!). He had a great question which I’m looking forward to answering for you with Vylan!

Here’s a question. I work in a creative company, where even the bosses tend to dress in jeans and a casual button-up shirt.

What’s the best way to dress with some style, but not stand out as the “square” just because I might want to wear something other than denim?

In the meantime, send us your style questions!
