The whole “New year, new me” concept is something we hear this time of year, every year. But let’s be honest – most of us who join a gym or start a new diet only sticks to it for a few weeks before slowly slipping back into our old habits.
So, why not come up with a resolution that you actually want to stick to? Such as upgrading your style game. Being stylish isn't restricted to wearing an expensive suit and tie all the time. For the modern man, having some key accessories in your wardrobe can be as essential as investing in a tailor.
We can follow a few simple steps and subtle conscious changes can have a big impact on your style. Here are a few pointers to start you off on the right foot.
Invest in a good wallet
In the modern world we live in today, cash is no longer king. We are moving more and more towards a cashless society, with options like Apple Pay, cashless pay points and online shopping. Our credit cards are king.
Although long overdue, there is no longer an excuse to carry around a big, bulky dad wallet, stuffed with cash, redundant rewards cards, receipts you never use. Less is more nowadays and our aim is to reduce our every-day carry to just the essentials.
Your wallet is an excellent way to add personal style to your outfit. And whether you opt for a classic simple black look, or like to diversify and mix up styles depending on the occasion or outfit, we assure you that The Cullen Wayne Collection has something to offer. Take a look at the collection right here.

Because a pair of nice shoes can upgrade the way you present yourself almost immediately.
The classic white sneaker are what we’d consider an absolute essential to any well-dressed man’s wardrobe. They’re clean, classy and look great with a lot of your casual, even up to a little more dressy, outfits.
The Oxford or Derby Dress shoe with a sleek profile and round toe for a more sophisticated look to top off a good suit.
Invest in tailoring
Badly fitting clothes might be one of the biggest faux pas that we see in men’s fashion. The best way to up your style game is to make sure that everything you wear actually fits you, whether casual wear or formal.
It’s not hard: for the basics, like shirts and trousers, just make sure that you know your actual size and that you're sticking to it. Find a few brands that suits your shape for shirts and trousers. For investment pieces like a suit or an overcoat, we’d always suggest that you visit a tailor.
