Here are the simple hacks for men
1.Go for grey instead of white to wear under white dress shirt.
Most men wear a white vest under white shirts. But wearing a vest of the same color will show through. On the other hand, the grey vest would be typically less visible as it actually absorbs light. It will not show any undershirt lines through your shirt creating a cleaner and more gentleman look.
2.Wash your dress shirts in a laundry bag
When you wash your dress shirts a lot, you oftentimes see that you have a fraying collar or cuff. Now, if you wash your dress shirts in a delicate bag, you’ll be able to maintain the shirts as new for a long time.The delicate bag acts a barrier between your shirt and the washing machine and therefore, the edges wear less. Now, don’t stuff your bag through the brim otherwise, your shirts won’t get clean. Add 2-3 shirts maximum per bag.
3.Use rubbing alcohol or a hairspray to remove pen’s stains.
Most of us have seen the pen’s marks on the shirts. A simple and easy way to remove the pen stain is to apply hairspray as a pretreatment. Put some spray on the shirt and let it stay like this for 10 minutes and then wash the shirt. Alcohol can be also used to remove some tough Pen stains.
4.Here’s another dryer-related trick
If you are running late and your iron is missing, you can throw your shirt or pants in the dryer with a damp washcloth and run the machine for 10 minutes around. The damp cloth would release steam and would relax the shirt’s fibers and release the wrinkles. After washing, lay it out flat on the surface and hang it up.
5.Never ever wear white socks with any formal Outfit
Repeat after us, never ever wear white socks with dark formal pants such as black or navy. Although many people tend to ignore this small fact but trust us on this, unmatched socks is a mistake you don’t want to make. Buy proper dress socks for your suits and formals.
6.Dirty Laundry should not mess the fresh outfits while traveling
If you are traveling for long, and you have to put the dirty laundry in the bag, then take care to separate in another pouch and put a piece of bar soap so that the fresh clothes remain fresh and they don’t catch the foul smell of unwashed clothes.
7.Take care of your formal suit while packing
In case you are not able to take your suit in a suit cover, this is the way you should pack your suit and carry it. First of all, put the suit flat on the surface such as a bed or a table. After that fold the left shoulder back and do the same with right shoulder inside out. Next step is tucking the left shoulder into the right.After this fold the suit in half lengthwise and then fold horizontally.The final step is placing the folded jacket in the center of outstretched trousers.Wrap the trouser bottoms over the jacket and repeat with the top of trousers.
