A true gentleman needs to look his best to feel his best. So, when it comes to types of shirt plackets, choosing one that fits your style and personality is key. For those beginners to picking the right placket a brief crash course of the six types. The Front Placket is the most popular shirt with a standard collar and buttons, providing a very business-like, dressy appearance. Next is the No Placket (French Front), a more sophisticated shirt placket with seams along the buttons only on one side. The Covered Placket (Fly Front) is a more formal option with only the collar button being visible, a shirt often associated with tuxedo events. The sporty and informal Popover Placket is a more casual option with only three buttons, making it comfortable to put on by just the shirt over your head. The Tuxedo Front (plain) is a version of the French Front Placket, but the top four buttons can be removed and replaced with tuxedo studs. Last but certainly not least, the Pleated Tuxedo Front features small fabric folds on the shirt front, with the top four buttons also replaceable with tuxedo studs.
To pair any perfectly fitted shirt, a gentleman needs an elegant and stylish looking suit to match. An absolute must in your suit collection (due to recent popularity) navy blue suits can be used in many occasions from more formal with a polo, to a job interview with a Front Placket shirt and handkerchief. While some may argue that black suits have already lived through their best times, they are still classy and classic and can be used for a special event. A new favorite among gentlemen, charcoal grey suits truly allow the user to run wild and show their true fashion IQ from matching with a wide variety of shirt and tie combos to the right colored shoes. Three other colored suits for the bolder man are green, beige and burgundy suits. Often to be used in more casual or fashion-forward type events, these color combinations truly give off a cool and elegant vibe.
When you are ready to head off to a special event, any gentleman needs to make sure they are properly dressed from head to toe. The perfect outfit, no matter the occasion, isn’t complete without a great pair of shoes. Shoes have the uncanny ability to make the difference between shabby and chic and make or break your perfectly polished outfit. From the common Oxford shoes, Derby shoes, Monk Strap shoes, Brogue shoes, Wingtip shoes, Cap Toe shoes, and Wholecut shoes, Hockerty’s newest addition is allowing users to design their very own shoes no matter the style. Each custom-made dress shoe is created by hand, one by one, by true artisans in Spain ensuring truly bespoke pieces. Similar to the process with their dress shirts, the easy process of creating your shoe begins with choosing from a selection of leathers and fabrics, picking your style and inputting your size.
