How to look professional in a T-shirt

Few of my male friends have new-found jobs at companies which dictate a certain dress code for their employees and constantly ask me what they should wear. Being the semi-formal person that I am, I always tell them that there is a way to be comfortable but still look sharp for work.

I dislike shirts. I think they are restrictive (especially for people who excessively sweat)
and I personally prefer them around my waist than underneath a jacket, so I wear a lot of T-shirts. The thing is, on people with the right personality and the right accessories, T-shirts can look as sharp as shirts when worn with a suit and I am about to show you how.

First of all, make sure to always wear a fitted suit. Leaner men can easily get away with cigarette-cut pants and slim jackets and look very professional and sexy. In order to look influential buy suits in black, navy, different shades of gray or deep burgundy and avoid brown or khaki. Always pair your suit with sleek, shiny shoes in coordinating colors, a slim belt and an expensive watch. 

Make sure the T-shirt is plain and only go for a pattern if you have an eye for 'mixing 'n' matching' or if your workplace allows a burst of personal style. The T-shirt should always be wrinkle-free just like you'd treat a shirt and be made out of high-quality fabrics such as soft cotton or cashmere. You should have several T-shirts in neutral colors such as white, black, gray or navy at your disposal, depending on the color and style of your suit.

My last piece of advice would be to be a savvy shopper. Your suit should be the most expensive part of your outfit as you need show off class and quality and there is no better place to shop for one than Paul Fredrick. Besides suits, the company offers a wide selection of dressy shoes and interesting belts. In order to have more T-shirts, buy ones from basic lines which are cheaper and yet very often maintain a high level of quality. Follow these rules and you are set to go!
