Look Good, Feel Good

Computer programmers have a bad wrap for wearing nasty jeans and a goofy tee-shirt to work. Being holed up in front of a computer for 8+ hours a day with little outside contact can lead to poor hygiene and poor fitting clothes. I'm trying to change this stereotype one outfit at a time. Clothes that are slim fitting and well tailored make the wearer more attractive.

Items to avoid:

When looking for clothes, the most important item to check is how the item fits. Cheap fabric or an ugly pattern can still be worn if it fits your body well. When looking for clothes, there are several stores that have better form fitting clothes. Stores such as Express, H&M, and Zara offer contemporary fashion at a reasonable price.

The #1 item I would recommend buying is a quality pair of shoes. Depending on the time of the year, this can be different styles:

One brand of shoe I didn't mention that are handmade here in the US is  Allen Edmonds. Quality shoes that will last you forever. Get them resoled and touched up every 15 years and you can hand them down to your grand children. I recommend starting with a pair of Park Avenue and you will never need another pair of dress shoes. The other three staples are: Strand, Dalton, and McAllister. Leather soles are king.
