1. Get rid of anything with a word on it. Yes, even if that word is Armani (actually, especially if that word is Armani.)
Your clothing says something about you. And clothes with the brand name emblazoned across the back, or stitched onto the pocket, or stretched across your ass, say “I have self-esteem issues when it comes to the brands I wear and need you to know where I bought this.” Is that what you want to say?
2. Dress less age appropriate. Take whatever age you think is right for you and add about ten years.
Look at this man in the picture. He looks good – very good. Do you look this good?
3. Put on one item first, then add to that one item. Can be a different item each time (pants one day, shirt the next.)
Always dressing to the shirt you wear can become boring. One time try dressing to your shoes, you wild and crazy guy.
4. Unless you are at the beach, it is never so hot that you don’t need a shirt. Even if you have the body of a Greek god – keep your shirt on.
The world isn’t your personal Pearl Jam moshpit.
5. If you’re playing a sport, go ahead and wear technical athletic gear. But if you’re not, and instead are, say, shopping for groceries, or washing your car, then you don’t really need an advanced system to wick sweat. Because if you do, there might be something wrong with you. Look at it this way – if you need the technology that put men in space handling your moisture production while you walk around the mall, you may be on the verge of cardiac arrest.
In the same vein – team jerseys are for games. I appreciate that you love your [insert name of franchise here] but, unless you are on your way to the stadium/arena/rink/park, you look like a five year old. This goes for bags (unless you’re going to the gym), hats, track suits, and anything else you can slap a team logo on.
