You may have heard it before, but it’s worth repeating:
FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE MADE IN 1/10TH OF A SECOND.
People look at you and subconsciously ask themselves: Do I like this person? Do I trust him? Is he successful? Smart? Is he worth my time?
They make assumptions the moment you enter the room, way before you even get to introduce yourself!
So how can you make sure your look says positive things about you?
How can you dress sharp every day without feeling out of place, wasting time figuring things out, or throwing away thousands of bucks on clothes that aren’t right for you?
Any of these thoughts ever cross your mind?
"I know fit is important, but I’m not sure exactly how my clothes should fit…"
"Should I be wearing slim or regular? Am I a ‘regular’ in suits, or a ‘tall’? My shoes feel a bit tight… maybe I need a wider size? Do they even make shoes wider?"
"I like this shirt… but does it work for me?"
"I have a bunch of clothes, but no idea how to put them together in different or interesting ways. I just stick to the basic color combos since I know they work."
"Whenever I go shopping, I absolutely hate it. There are too many choices, I’m not sure what I need, and I usually just leave frustrated and empty-handed."
"I want to look good, but I’m not always sure how to go about it. I just wish I had someone to tell me what to do!"
If you've ever caught yourself saying or thinking even one of the above statements, you’re not alone.
I’ve been helping guys perfect their style on Effortless Gent for the last 8 years, and I’ve answered thousands of comments and emails. What you see above are the most common problems and concerns most guys face.
These issues are nagging, persistent, and ever-present... know why?
We have to get dressed every single day.
But not only that. On a deeper level...
The way we dress and present ourselves says lots about how we feel, who we are, what we believe in, and what we think of ourselves.
Would you be surprised if I told you that dressing well can also affect your mood and confidence, the way you feel about yourself, even the way others treat you?
And if this is true, it begs the question: What are you missing out on by not dressing well all the time?
