With the hundreds of
designer jeans available, be
careful about buying just any pair of denim.
"Go for darker washes rather than lighter ones.
Dark denim is easy to wear and always appropri-
ate, but lighter washes tend to look dated and are
harder to match with your favorite colors,"
Saboura says. He suggests straighter cuts
because they work best for most body types. Gay
men tend to gravitate to the bootcut and flared
styles, but they make a guy look too feminine
and flamboyant, especially on a leaner build.
"You're not fooling anyone with that kicky
leg," quips Saboura.
Shorter man can easily create a taller look with
the right alteration and hemline.
"Go for a slightly longer hem if you're short to
elongate your legs. And paired them with a great
pair of boots that have a slight heel, you'll
instantly have a slim, uninterrupted line, which
adds tons of height," he says.

Saboura says to forget all the Abercrombie and
athletic wear for the warm season. "Gay men
always end up sporting a sleeveless shirt to the
bars, and it's time to move on," he says. They
may play up a stud's sexy biceps, but a man with
a fuller torso looks soft and round, especially
after a few beers.
The fastest way to look hot without breaking

or a thin sweaters layered over a button-down.
Or, create your own clever combo to craft an
effortless, but thought-out look. Compliment
your style with a beachy flip-flop, a dressy loafer
or a cool pair of Vans to add some interest.
Most important, invest in a fantastic fitted dark
"There's a huge difference between fitted and
tight," Saboura says. "Fitted button-downs and
tees highlight your body. A tight shirt looks like
you raided your little brother's closet." Black
always works, but think about other colors, too,
such as darker jewel tones.
For men and women, the key to looking great
means staying true to yourself.

body is today, not how it was yesterday, or how
you want it to be tomorrow," he says. "When
you're comfortable in your clothing and feel
great, it shows in so many ways. Making the

look sleek and sexy. Spice up your button-down collection with
subtle pinstripes or other deep tones like navy or umber.

as a rule, but don't let your wrist go naked, A hot watch shows
colleagues and contemporaries that you mean business, if you
splurge on one purchase, make it your timepiece,
