After a suit is bought, there are several important men’s dress accessories that should be selected to keep it looking polished and comfortable to wear for as long as possible. One of the accessories that few people remember to get before it’s needed is a collar extender.
A dress shirt that gets a lot of use can shrink over time and become uncomfortably tight around the neck. A collar extender can add almost a half size to the collar and make it comfortable to wear again. Look for metal extenders that are strong and long lasting.
Shirt collars also eventually curl and fold over and lose those crisp edges and points that help it look trim and professional. Collar stays are an easy way to keep a collar in shape. Available in different sizes, a set of brass stays and a collar extender can fit most collar sizes and are strong and reusable.
Not always used these days because it’s more of a design statement that a necessary item, a silk handkerchief is an accessory that adds both a touch of color and a touch of class to any suit. A silk version will need to be dry-cleaned. Choose a design with a hand-rolled border in a favorite bright color or one that complements the suit.
A leather belt can finish off the perfect suit ensemble with style and class. Look for a belt with a brushed nickel buckle made from soft pliable leather in a neutral color like black or dark brown. Most belts worn with suits have a smooth surface and beveled edges, but a small textured pattern provides just a bit of accent and can look nice with a patterned suit fabric.
