Dean Tiegs replied to Craig's discussion Dressing for a Business Meeting
"Suits are not pretentious. As long as you avoid flashy jewellery (watch, bracelet, tie bars) you should be fine. There are a several ways to scale down the formality if you want, such as brown shoes, knit tie, darker shirt. In the scenario you…"

Dean Tiegs replied to Mike Little's discussion What is the most fashionable way for a guy to wear a smart phone, keys and a wallet?
"I see a lot of good advice here already. There are basically two sides to approach this problem: (1) get better places to carry your stuff and (2) reduce the amount of stuff you carry. The best of bad solutions will combine both approaches. For…"

Dean Tiegs replied to 24z Alek's discussion Tucking my shirt in?
"I am absolutely stunned that tucking in a T-shirt can be considered in any way unusual or controversial. I think I must now officially be an old man, completely out of touch with the 21st century."

Dean Tiegs replied to Jared Christensen's discussion Shaving Soaps
"I have been using Ogallala Bay Rum shaving soap lately. It makes a lot of lather very easily, smells great, and doesn’t seem to dry out my skin as much as Williams. I see you are in the United States, so I can’t comment on…"

Dean Tiegs replied to Rich Nichol's discussion Tux/DJ Gala Event
"If you have worn those boots with mess dress, that's a perfect reason to buck tradition slightly and wear them with civilian black tie. After all, military mess dress and civilian black tie have been borrowing details from each other since the…"

Dean Tiegs replied to Rich Nichol's discussion Tux/DJ Gala Event
"Yes, to all three bullet points. :)  But to go into a bit more detail: A white pocket square is classic, but dark colours work well too. Black shoes are appropriate. Boots are distinctly non-traditional with evening formal. Cologne: use a…"

Dean Tiegs replied to Jason Roller's discussion Fundraiser Attire
"Business casual sounds about right to me. Dark pants and black shoes, since it's in the evening. Shine your shoes. Sport coat, no tie. Maybe drop the sport coat if you feel it's too dressy, or add a tie if it's not dressy enough. What…"

Dean Tiegs replied to Jason Roller's discussion Fundraiser Attire
"How about some more info? Attire for a fundraiser at a rural Saskatchewan wagon wheel museum would be different from one at the Guggenheim in New York City. Also time of day and activities at the event would make a difference."

Dean Tiegs replied to Josh's discussion dressing up for BBQ
"If I’m at a barbecue with a shirtless cook, I would lose my appetite. The thought of another man’s chest hair, armpit hair - or the sweat thereof - falling on my food turns my stomach. And aren’t your family and friends the most…"

Dean Tiegs replied to Victor Franklin's discussion Cut myself while shaving, again.
"Always go with the grain first. I find I cut myself only when I accidentally move the razor perpendicular to handle: make sure you move it only parallel to the handle. One thing that may help with this is holding the razor by the very end of the…"

Dean Tiegs replied to Paul White's discussion Pairing Shoes with a Suit
"The Vincero grey is light enough that dark brown shoes and belt would go well with it, I think, but for a special occasion in the evening, I would go with black shoes. Another suggestion: since you are wearing a vest, consider suspenders instead of…"

Dean Tiegs replied to Betz's discussion Question About Tailoring and Suit Sizing
"Altering shoulders is usually cost prohibitive, so if you try on a larger size and the shoulders are too big, don’t buy it."
Jan 16, 2013
Dean Tiegs replied to Joshua Martin's discussion I am 16 I want to start shaving.
"I don’t mean to sound snarky, but have you considered the possibility that you seem to have more facial hair than your peers only because they have already been shaving for a few years? Don’t most men start shaving younger than 16?"

Dean Tiegs replied to Fred Hoeft's discussion SIlver jacket to a wedding?
"Without knowing more about the event (place, attire specified on the invitation, age and lifestyle of the other guests) I can't say for certain that it would be inappropriate, but my first impulse is to say don't wear that unless you are…"
Sep 18, 2012
Dean Tiegs replied to christopher cariker's discussion Spats?
"Definitely knee-high kilt hose with garters and garter flashes. Shorter socks look terrible with kilts. The only way short socks would be excusable is if you are participating in strong-man competition or something like that. For an event with any…"

Dean Tiegs replied to David F.'s discussion Lighting question! What is your favorite light? in the group Velo Men
"I too will be buying a new light soon for early morning autumn rides, so I am interested in recommendations as well. Over last winter an AAA battery leaked inside my headlight and ruined it."
