New Laws of Casual Style

As always, Esquire is looking out for men everywhere. Just because you are going out for a casual night out doesn't mean there is no hope for style. With 69 new man laws, be sure and check out this list so you don't look back and think, "If only I had known..."

5. There is a name for men who can pull off wearing sports jerseys. They’re called professional athletes.

9. Fitted is good. Snug is dicey. Tight is just wrong.

24. Articles that you can never dress up: sports jerseys, track pants, wifebeaters, Birkenstocks, and flip-flops.
