Getting your outfit ready
Pull your trousers up to your natural waist and make sure your shirt is tucked in neatly without wrinkles or creases on the front. Double-check your zipper is closed.
Get your sleeves in order by tucking first in the cuffs on your shirt to straighten the sleeves, then on the sleeves of your jacket. Rule of thumb is that you should be able to see 1 – 1.5 cm of your shirt’s cuffs under the jacket sleeve. This rule still applies even if you have invested in the most beautiful cufflinks you want to show off. If you want photos that show your cufflinks (if, for example they have you and your spouse’s initials on them), make sure to get a photo where your arms are bend in a 90 degree angle, as the cufflinks will naturally show then.
Pull your socks up to ensure there is no visible skin between the top of your socks and your trousers’ hem.
Dust it off
Tie your shoe laces and dust your shoes off.
Tight & Snug
Straighten and tighten your tie or bowtie. It should sit so close that only the knot is visible in the collar and ensure the collar is snugly closed.
