Go To A Tailor
The fit of clothing is one of the biggest factors in how you present. If you buy pants that are slightly too short or too big, it will make a huge difference in the impression you make. Ill fitting clothes make you look slovenly and immature. The best solution to this, bar searching for the perfect pair of pants, is to simply take your clothes to a tailor. Most tailors can be found at dry cleaners, and there’s no need to shell out for a custom suit salesman. It’s as simple as getting your shirts, jackets, and pants taken in at the right places. This takes you from mediocre to model for a small cost.
Get Your Shoes Shined
Details are important. You can have the nicest suit in the world, but if you’re sporting crappy shoes or a worn out belt, you’re not going to look good. Pay attention to the details of your wardrobe. In fact, details can be even more important than your main outfit. If a man wears a basic t-shirt and a nice pair of jeans, for example, what will really make him stand out is having a really spiffed up pair of shoes or belt. Leather and expensive fabrics look awesome when paired with casual clothes. Getting your shoes shined up, even if they’re old, is a great way to draw attention to those details. Obviously, this only works to a certain point. If your shoes are 10 years old and are missing soles, you’re out of luck. But take a decent pair of shoes that are a little scuffed and shine them up, either with a kit or professionally, and you’ll look like a man with style and class.
Stock up on Stylish Basics
Dressing to impress is surprisingly simple, but that’s what makes it hard. Most guys think you have to go out and invest in an expensive suit or designer outfit to impress women. That’s not the case at all. All you have to do is get the basics right. Focus on solid colors and some decent shirts in classic fabrics like brushed cotton or linen, and you’ll be good to go. Focus on quality and class, rather than trends or styles that look good on the mannequin, but might look bizarre on a real person.
