Unfortunately, with all that attention, it means YOU have to pay attention to detail.Wrinkles, too many buttons buttoned, oversized or undersized clothes can really takedown on the quality of your look. One area that cannot be overlooked is the socks. It’s time to move away from the white tube socks. Save the ankle socks for casual wear. Go to the store and find a high quality dress sock. Your feet will thank you and it will complete your look.
