Over the years men’s style has changed significantly. We have gone from a generation of men who used to wear suits for any and all occasions to a generation where sweatpants and sneakers have become to norm at events that at one time required use to look out best.
Personally, if I had it my way, I would like to see every guy look his best at all times.
Below, I will list the reasons why it’s important to revert back to the classics instead of following fashion trends all the time and how you can actually incorporate both into your life for a balanced wardrobe.
– The Classics are Classics For A Reason –
Polos, Button Downs, Ties, Slacks, Minimalistic Sneakers, Dress Shoes and Blazers have been around since your fathers generation. Your grandfather’s generation and possibly your great grandfathers generation.
Why have these items stood the test of time?
Because they work for almost every situation and no matter what the situation calls for you’ll always look good in them.
(Seriously, it takes quite a bit of effort to look terrible in a suit. But almost no effort to dress like Kanye circa 2015-2016)
– Suits Are To Men What Lingerie Is To Women –
The same way we look at high value women in an great pair of lingerie is the same way a woman looks at a well dressed man. No matter what the situation is, a man in a suit is always attractive.
– Knowing How to Dress Well is a Rarity –
In this day and age, most men do not know how to dress well. What was once an effortless skill is now
a lost art. Men just simply do not know how to dress and follow the style of whoever is the newest trendsetter in pop culture. It’s come to a point where almost every guy looks the same and has no idea how to present themselves in a professional setting.
To be honest it’s an absolute disgrace. It shows a lack of creativity and social awareness.
So if you’re a guy who knows how to dress well, congratulations, you’re a single diamond in a mountain of dirt.
– Dressing Commands Respect-
If you dress like a kid, people usually won’t take your opinions seriously and will treat you like a child. On the other hand, if you dress like a winner and somebody who has their life together. People treat you as someone who they can trust. Someone who can act as a leader and a person who has a handle on their life.
– “The More Well Dressed You Are. The Worse You Can Behave.”-
The better you dress. The more you can get away with. As I stated in previous post, dressing well is a
sign of high status. People are more likely to forgive you’re “bad behavior” (flirting, being sexual with women in front of other people…etc), if you dress well and you’re charming.
With all of this being said, there is a time and place for everything. In certain occasions, it is acceptable to dress casually and bum it out. But even then, you can still look good doing it.
