Alan Flusser is a Coty award winner, author on the finest points of menswear, designer of the clothing for Wall Street and Scent of a Woman, and a permanent member of the International Best-Dressed list. After 31 years of men coming to him to find out how best to attire themselves, he has developed an iPhone app called BeSpeak which means that now Alan Flusser comes to you.
Not at all a cookie-cutter app – come on, we're talking about the tailor who wrote Clothes and the Man – you build a personal profile includes your hair color, skin tone, eye color, face shape, body shape and size. The recommendations provided are based first on that profile, and then based on matching all of the colors and patterns of the items you'll be wearing (suit, dress shirt, tie, and pocket square).
You pick a color or a pattern, and it will suggest complementary colors and patterns to go with. Never again will you have someone examine your shirt, tie and pocket square with that silent look of, "What happened there?" And unlike going to New York City to imbibe the live-action Flusser's advice, the BeSpeak app is free. It is currently only for formal attire and suits, but more casual tips will come soon. You know what that means, those of you who wish to dress well: you have no excuse not to.
