Style blogger offers tips on buying your first suit

THE BRONX -

A Bronx style blogger is offering tips for those who are buying their first suit.

Diego Leon, also known as Dandy in the Bronx says someone’s first suit should be navy and in three pieces.  He says black, gray and brown are really hard to work with.

Leon says it’s also important to make friends your local dry cleaner because a suit bought off the rack probably won’t fit.  He says the dry cleaner will help you cut up the suit in the right places.

He also says it’s important not to make your tie match with your pocket square.  He says you should use colors that complement each other – much like sports teams colors.
