When I was in school, I had no clue whatsoever about fashion & style. I used to dress like a chump and not a single girl noticed me. I felt pathetic at that time, of course now when I look back I realize it was a necessary ordeal. In the starting years of my college I started reading “How to Dress” guides. By the 2nd year of college I had read more than 20 books on the art of dressing and what makes women weak in the knees! Soon, I realized that most of the information in these books did not work when I applied it in the real life. There were times when friends used to laugh at me for my stupid and unusual dressing style.
So I decided to try things in my own way, I started reading psychology and made small changes in my dressing style daily and refined it on the basis of the compliments I got from people, especially girls! And after a year of combining style with psychology and body language, I was by far the best dressed guy in college! Girls would literally come to me and tell me that I looked Sexy(p.s:my face looks average at best).
Now I know there are a lot of guys out there who have problems in dressing the right way and attracting women in their lives and I’m here to help those guys because I know how that feels.
First of all, let me walk you through the common myths and cliches that people actually believe to be true.
MYTH 1 : Women look at your wallet. If they don’t like what they see, you haven’t got a chance.
CONCLUSION: Bull Shit.
TRUTH: Wallet? Forget the wallet, use a cardholder or a billfold. Who carries cash these days anyway? Drug dealers and pimps? A woman isn’t interested in the £500 wallet made from the hides of purpose bred arctic squirrels. Ok, there are no purpose bred squirrels in the arctic, but if there was, the wallets would be expensive. What is true is that you should take care of your money, regardless of what you store it in. Like I said, a billfold or a card holder is far more attractive.
WOMEN DON’T USUALLY PAY MUCH ATTENTION TO A MAN’S WALLET. ANY WOMAN WHO IS CONCERNED WITH WHAT IS IN THE WALLET SHOULD BE AVOIDED. A NICE CLASSIC LEATHER , SLIM LINE WALLET WILL ALWAYS ADD THE FINISHING TOUCH A LOT BETTER THAN SOME OLD BATTERED WALLET YOU HAVE HAD FOR A DECADE.
MYTH 2: Your watch isn’t super expensive, she’s not interested.
CONCLUSION: Only if she’s a gold digger.
TRUTH: This has such a minor level of credibility it is practically a fairy story. Men buy watches to impress other men, it’s a token of success, financial pornography and in most cases a large dose of vulgarity slung around the wrist. When I was about 8 years old I got a new watch that did everything, from alarms ringing to launching nuclear missiles at the touch of a button (it was an G.I. Joe watch and I believed the advert). I kept on playing with this watch endlessly and a woman said to me, “women don’t like a man who plays with his watch, if it’s so good, you don’t need to draw attention to it”. That has stuck with me to this day.
I ALWAYS BELIEVE A MAN SHOULD EITHER WEAR AN EXPENSIVE WATCH, OR A VERY CHEAP AND FUNKY ONE. GUYS WHO BUY CHEAP WATCHES THAT ARE DESPERATELY TRYING TO LOOK EXPENSIVE COME ACROSS AS JUST THAT: DESPERATE. SO IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE MONEY, THEN GET YOURSELF ONE OF THOSE FUNKY WATCHES WHICH YES MIGHT LOOK CHEAP, BUT ARE COOL NONE THE LESS, BECAUSE IT’S UNAPOLOGETIC AND OFTEN ENCOURAGES THE WOMAN TO ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT IT. CALL IT GEEKY chic.
MYTH 3: The shoes will make her mind say yes or no.
CONCLUSION: This is only very partially true.
TRUTH: It’s only true because your shoes should never ever be tatty, worn or scuffed – but you knew that already. So long as your shoes are in good condition and they are congruent with the outfit you’re wearing, great. Don’t stick a pair of converse sneakers with an Armani suit – think of the occasion, your age, your personal style…more on these later.
GUYS SHOULD AVOID SNEAKERS/SPORT SHOES UNLESS THEY HAVE THE WHOLE HIPSTER LOOK GOING ON, IN WHICH CASE AN UBER COOL PAIR OF SNEAKERS OR CONVERSE WILL BE CONGRUENT WITH THEIR GENERAL STYLE. INVESTING IN ONE PAIR OF EXPENSIVE BROWN AND BLACK SMART SHOES WILL BE AN EXTREMELY WISE INVESTMENT. THEY WILL LAST A LONG TIME AND CAN REALLY ADD THAT VITAL FINAL DETAIL TO AN OUTFIT.
IS IT TRUE WOMEN ARE OBSESSED WITH THE SHOES MEN WEAR? YES.
MYTH 4: It’s better to ask a woman (wife/girlfriend/workmate) how to dress/ take you shopping.
CONCLUSION: This is hardly ever true .
TRUTH: Girls will tell you to wear things that THEY like, not necessarily what suits you. Now I’m not saying women don’t know about fashion, they do, what I’m saying is that there will always be a biased opinion from a girlfriend or a female friend that doesn’t necessarily suit you, they will treat you like a mannequin, not a friend.
