Look Cool and Keep it Cheap

With the recession in full swing it can be a little more than just difficult to come by those designer fashions that you love so much. In fact, it may even be hard to come by those same fashions on discount sales. So what is a guy to do in order to indulge in cool male fashion and do it on the cheap?

The notion behind it all

The notion behind looking and feeling good without breaking the bank is that you don’t actually need designer fashions or even new clothes at all. And where it really is a must, you can shop around for bargains at a local store instead of on the designer shelves. So let’s get down to revamping what you have and scouting what you need at the best prices.

Something old

A tuxedo is something that is very necessary, especially if you are constantly on the invitation list to black tie affairs. However, the tux from a few years back may not fit all that well anymore. What you need to do is simply have it tailored. Tailoring is far more cost effective than buying a new tux. Break the separate parts of your old tux up and you have fantastic new cool male fashion. Need a smart casual look or just a cool addition to spice up your look for a hot night out?

Simply pair that tailored tux jacket with a one of that vintage look screen print t-shirts and a pair of neat, fitted boot leg jeans. It is smart, yet casual and bound to grab the ladies’ attention all night long.

Pair up that old tux trousers with a plain, button down shirt and tie for a simple yet sophisticated look. And what about the vest? Well, that is a versatile gem. Wear it over a vintage printed tee, a polo shirt or even a button down shirt. This little fashion find offers you a cool look that build character with your outfit and personality.

Something new

When you are biting the bullet in the midst of a recession, there is no excuse for frivolous spending of any kind, especially not on overpriced fashion. When you are looking for one or two new items to spice up your revamped wardrobe some more, look for sails.

Seasonal sales, end of range sales, bargain bins, never be afraid of these things. You are certain to pick up a few items of cool male fashion among the sales and at good prices too. A recession is time to tune in to financial survival and not into luxurious living. However, that does not mean that you have to walk the streets looking drab and yesteryear.
