Gentlemen,

Do you have any dressing or grooming goals for 2010?

Mine are:

-Get a couple of suits to the tailor for adjustment so I can add them to the rotation.
-Put up the new tie racks my wife bought me and keep rotating through the ties. I find myself wearing the same 4 or five ties every day.
-Take better care of my shoes
-Build a better casual wardrobe
-Continue wet shaving with my Merkur.

What are your goals?

- Shaving with my Merkur when it gets here - should be this week.
- Take my spring/summer tan suit to get it tailored.
- Wear a tie every once in a while to work. I don't want to start that trend because they will expect it all the time.
- Buy a tweed sports coat.
Yes, I need to add a blue blazer, a tweet sports coat and some appropriate slacks to the mix as well.

You will enjoy the Merkur. I haven't missed the Mach 3.
I had to buy a new suit for my daughters baptism. I didn't meet my size goal (which was to fit in one I already owned. I'm with you on the size goals thing.
here are my goals.

-get at least two suits and get them fitted and start wearing them.
-Keep my clothes organized.
-improve my casual wardrobe
-improve my overall fashion sense.
I've already started work on this over the last month or so, but here's what I'm up to these days:

- Get rid of clothes I don't like or don't wear anymore. Goodwill here I come!
- Develop my own sense of style; I'm trying to balance rugged and well-dressed with casual
- Learn more about colors and fashion in general; I want to know what works with my body type, what I can get away with, etc.
- Purchase a Merkur - last year I went with the wet-shave ... now it's time to move on up!
It's hard to balance rugged and well-dressed, Caleb - I'm trying to do the same thing. My job is business casual - khakis or dress pants and a collared shirt. But on the weekends, I've been wearing flannel shirts - comfortable and warm. Got a real nice fleece lined one for Christmas from my Mom - black watch plaid (my favorite). I'm also a big fan of a thermal Henley.
I, too, have been enjoying flannel. I was able to get my hands on a few flannel shirts and Henleys which have been a great addition to my wardrobe, especially since I attend school in Upper Michigan where it's plenty cold. I find combining them with darker colored jeans goes a long way towards looking snazzy while still maintaining that rugged look.

I'm still trying to figure out clothes for business casual and more formal occasions, but one battle at a time, right? :)
I have the same problem. I work in engineering for a heavy manufacturing facility. People in my job description often end up in some less than clean production areas, so it is pretty casual. For safety reasons, it is natural fibers, ties are questionable, lugged sole safety shoes. Hard to upgrade the wardrobe above dockers and button downs or collared shirts. I'm trying to just make sure my clothes are well pressed and appear nice. In my off work time, I chase 4 kids around, so it is pretty casual. Hard to justify 3 entirely different wardrobes, so I'm a little limited. Buying a winter coat to fit all circumstances is a nightmare.
You certainly do not have to wear a suit to be well dressed. My father in law is a hospital doctor, and often sticks to the natural fibers, and no tie when he is on the job. He does wear blazers made by Duluth Trading Co. that are of cotton though. He looks well-dressed.
as for the saftey hazards posed by ties: why not try the bow tie? they dont pose a risk of being sucked into heavy machienry like a regular tie does. plus, they just look fantastic.
Improve the quality of my wardrobe from the ground up, starting with shoes.
Filter out the items I don't/won't/shouldn't wear
Learn to better coordinate colors and accessories
- Wear only a suit to Mass

- Stop wearing t-shirts in public
