While a crisp, clean look is appealing, there are times when you don't want to look too pressed, too starched, too new. Especially in your custom casual clothing, you may want to create a more relaxed look than your dressier wardrobe pieces offer-without sacrificing on style or fit.
Your expertly crafted customwear will look-and feel-as comfortable and familiar as your long-beloved favorites.
Your color choices can also help create a more broken-in look. Choose muted earth tones instead of bright, crisp colors. Mossy greens, camel brown, and heathered colors are good options when crafting that subtle lived-in look. Low-contrast plaids and stripes look more relaxed than contrasting colors.
Denim is a perennial favorite for crafting the lived-in look. Its color intensity varies sharply with wear, yet denim offers long-lasting durability. Pairing a custom-made shirt in an earth tone with a well-fitting pair of denim jeans instantly gives you an appealing ensemble. Remember that you're not limited to blue denim-dark gray or tan jeans can create a refreshing change of pace in casualwear.

Your holiday or seasonal neckwear needs a safe place to rest until its moment to shine arrives. Instead of letting occasional-use ties collect dust or fade by languishing near your everyday ties, treat them right by storing them wisely.
Fold the tie in half lengthwise. Roll it up smoothly from the folded end to the point. Be careful your roll is neither too tight, nor too loose. Store the tie in a shallow drawer. Now it'll be in excellent condition when its day to shine arrives.
