BE THE BEST DRESSED MAN IN THE ROOM
Readers of The Distilled Man are ahead of the curve when it comes to style, but most men in their 20’s and 30’s still have room to improve. In particular, men who want to feel and appear more masculine, can really use clothing to their advantage.
Before a woman notices your haircut, muscles (or lack thereof), smile, height, etc., she notices your outfit. It’s like my father told me:
Your clothes are always working. They’re either working for you or against you, but they’re alwaysworking.”
Gentlemen, I implore you: Make your clothes work for you.
If you know you could be dressing better, don’t worry. There are so many great resources available for those who want to step up their style, and many of them are right here on this website. Here are some great starting points:
Timeless style tips from The Refined Gent
Why you should care about your appearance
Alterations 101: How to make jackets, pants and shirts fit better
The Getup: Outfit ideas for every occasion
Learn how clothes should fit
Always remember that fit trumps everything other aspect of style. Stay away from trends, and don’t buy anything based on brand. If you want advice or feedback on specific outfits, reach out to the Style Forum, Male Fashion Advice (Reddit), Dappered and Art of Manliness communities.
And you know what’s awesome about more confidence? It begets even more confidence.
You don’t have to tackle all of these things at once. Pick an area that you are interested or particularly weak in, and go after it like there’s no tomorrow.
Always remember: there are plenty of things in life that you can’t control—your height, your thinning hair, your IQ—and there’s no point in dwelling on these things. If you want to be manly and interesting and attractive, focus on what you can control.
And start right now.
