With all the strange trends that continue to pour out of the men’s lifestyle magazines, it can often be difficult to shop for comfortable clothing. Of course, a good looking gentleman like yourself should always be dressed to impress, but comfort is also key. All women appreciate a well-dressed man. No need to take advice from silly fashion magazines to look good. Sometimes all you need are the tips you learned from your grandfather: a true connoisseur of style.
The simplest style is often the most impactful. Years ago, men weren’t walking around in the latest sunglasses or a shirt covered in logos. Men kept their look almost plain, yet refreshing, considering how loud the fashion industry is nowadays. Your charm and good looks should be the only “flashy” thing about you.
Iron your Clothes
This should be a no-brainer. You wouldn’t believe how many men refuse to iron their clothes just because it’s “too much work.” Well it used to be that men didn’t care what it took to look good. They weren’t afraid to man up and get shit done. So, be like your grandfather and iron your clothes because there’s nothing worse than a wrinkled slob.
Keep your Shoes Shined
It’s not every day that you take out your dress shoes from the back of the closet, so make sure you dust them off with a good shining. A freshly shined pair of shoes will make all the women swoon, a pleasure your grandfather probably knows all too well.
Get a Haircut Every Two Weeks
This might seem odd to all the tight-wad guys out there, but it’s a necessity to get a haircut twice a month. There are plenty of barbers out there that charge fair prices for a fair haircut, so there’s no need to break the bank. You just have to find the barbers under the radar, not the corporations that overcharge. No woman wants to show up for a date with someone she could easily confuse for a bum off the street.
Match your Belt with your Shoes
Many men can’t understand the importance of a matching belt. They figure if it’s out of sight, it’s out of mind. But your grandfather always made sure to wear a black belt with black shoes and a brown belt with brown shoes. He knows it’s not rocket science, so you should too.
Can’t Beat the Plain White Tee
Nothing looks better than a freshly ironed white t-shirt with a pair of Levi’s 501 jeans. The look has faded in recent time due to the stereotypical association with the “greaser” look, but don’t let that deter you. This look is effortless but powerful. Plus, ALL women love Grease Lightning, duh!
It’s much better to show up to the beach wearing a suit rather than a dinner party in your flip flops. When it comes to dinner parties, take pride in the fact that you look better than all the other men in the room. The ladies at the party will certainly appreciate it, too. A gentleman is always prepared!
Wear a Watch
In today’s age, there’s no need for watches anymore. Damn near everyone has a smart phone, but when your grandfather was young, he wore a nice watch. When it comes to picking one out, don’t buy anything too flashy. Back in the day, men said “no” to all the bright diamonds and bling. All they cared was that the thing was still ticking and it matched the rest of his clothes.
When it comes to fashion advice, skip out on all the millennial fashion magazines. Sometimes all you need is a simple look, inspired by the past.
