How to Dress
Dress your best and they'll KNOW you are the best
How to dress is an easy question: the best.
There is no reason for you not to be the best dressed person at
any social occasion. Dressing well
helps you on several levels:
Confidence: When you wear your best, you feel your best. There is
nothing that drags you to believe that you are inferior to
anyone else in the room.
Looks: Women can recognize a well dress man much better than guys
recognize women. Women live and breathe clothes, so it is built
in to their daily operation to make assumptions about what type
of person you are. Their impressions and assumptions about you
are always positive, if you are well dressed, you are also: well
off, hygienic, healthy, professional, clean, well mannered and
not a serial killer.
Their image: Women since they were girls have always dreamt " I
want a tall dark and handsome man....", well, you can't do much
about tall but you can fulfill the handsome need simply by
always wearing your best at social occasions. They don't want to
be seen talking to some guy who could easily be confused with
the neighborhood bricklayer.
You may think :" But then I have to iron the shirt, dry clean the
jacket the next day, polish the shoes before going out..." No,
you don't have to do all that. I have streamlined my wardrobe to
have only wrinkle free shirts and pants. Wearing my best clothes
is just as hassle-less as wearing anything else. I don't dry
clean the jacket every day (once a month at most), the shoes are
polished once month. The pants and shirts are washed
together with the rest of the casual clothes.
Of course, there are several ways to be well dressed for each
occasion. You don't want be wearing the same sport coat to heavy
metal concerts or barbeques.
The best way to figure out what you need to get the best clothes
is to skim through GQ type magazines and figure out what is
fashionable this year. Then go shop at cheaper than name brand
store for those same colors and cuts. All you need is one
kick-ass set of clothes for:
1) classy events (like a gallery opening or piano lounge)
2) summer day events ( barbecues, ball games)
3) clubbing (ultra trendy clothes for clubs and high class
4) week night (neighborhood watering holes)
There are ways to look great in all these occasions. Browse a
magazine like Vibe or RollingStone or GQ, figure out what the
new trend will be and look for stores that sell the same look
