8. Let your denim do less talking
"If you're going to wear jeans—especially if you're going to wear them at work—I'm big on jeans with "self-stitching," where the thread matches the color of the denim. They also shouldn't have many details on them. It gives taller guys a more formal look. There are brands that know that and embrace that, like Levi's. They make jeans that often have a touch of contrast, but not too much. I love the idea of a jean with minimal details."
