Who says you need to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks? One of the easiest ways to update a look is by including a few new additions to the outfit. Save money (and your sanity) by trying these seven easy upgrades, which will take your suit game to a level you haven’t yet reached. You never know, a promotion may be in order after trying these upgrades because you’re going to look like a boss afterwards.
1. Waist extension tab
A waist extension tab is exactly what it sounds like: Instead of just a normal pair of pants that button in the middle, the waist extension tab simply allows you to forgo a belt because it forces you to button your pants further off to the side. Suit expert Jon Tietz for GQ offers this easy upgrade suggestion. As mentioned, there’s no belt required and it doesn’t cost anything. It’s just a little tailored detail when you’re buying a new suit that ups its “looks more expensive” factor. Lucky for you gents, stores like Topman and J.Crew make pants with the waist extension tab for a price that won’t break the bank. You’re well on your way, sir.
