Congratulations! You just graduated college, maybe high school, maybe grad school, maybe
0:04
you’re leaving the military. In any case, you’re a young man looking to make an impact
0:08
on the world. And, you’re looking at all these fashion, image, and style stuff and you’re
0:12
asking does it really matter, what what do I need to know, what’s important?
0:16
Well, in today’s video, I’ve got ten tips for you on how you can use fashion and style
0:21
to get what you want out of life.
0:32
Tip number one. Have confidence believe in yourself.
0:34
I know, I’m not going to start off talking about jackets and shirts and all of
0:37
those other stuff because all of that is window dressing if you don’t believe in where you’re
0:42
going and who you are and what you stand for. Understand, you’ve got to have a strong base
0:48
you’ve got to have a direction. Find a mentor, find a direction, find a purpose.
0:53
And I understand, it may take a while to do this, but go forward with confidence because
0:58
nothing sends a signal of strength and attracts people than a man who is confident, a man
1:04
who believes and has something that he stands for.
1:08
Tip number two. Understand that image and presentation is a lot more important than
1:12
colleges or your friends or family have led you to believe. And for a lot of people this
1:17
is a hard one to swallow because they really want to believe that what’s in our heart and
1:21
what’s in our head is the most important thing and I’m not going to argue with that.
1:25
I have four children, I want I mean I truly focus in on these things, but we make split
1:30
second decisions about people every day the vast majority of people based off of what
1:35
we see. We never get the chance to actually find out what how smart they are or how good
1:41
of a person they are. We have to make a snap judgment decision and oftentimes in business
1:46
you will not even have opportunities come your way because you’re simply are not given
1:50
the chance if you don’t look the part. You start to realize, okay, like I am going to
1:55
either use these rules and you’re free to reject them. But, understand if you do that
2:00
you’re going to be fighting an uphill battle. I’m a big fan of actually working within a
2:04
system and then getting to the top and then trying to change it.
2:08
All right, guys. So, at this point I want to bring in the paid sponsor of this video,
2:11
Vincero watches. I’ve talked about this company before. You guys know I love this company.
2:15
Over the last eighteen months I’ve been wearing their watches. In fact, when I travelled the
2:19
world, I took this watch with me right here. Look at these beautiful watches and look at
2:24
the different styles from the Marble Collection. Have you guys gone over and looked at that
2:27
Italian marble and everything that they’ve got going on over there?
2:31
Now, my favorite collection is the Chronos Collection, but I want to hear from you guys
2:35
down in the comments. What is your favorite particular style? If I have extras, I love
2:40
to send them your way, but you’ve got to be specific, you got to tell me the exact style.
2:44
The exact type of watch. Now, for me I love Chrono S in silver gold. I also like the Chrono
2:50
S in blue black, but there’s many different watches to choose from.
2:54
And look at the details. If you go in there and you look at the specs in on the watches,
2:59
316L surgical grade stainless steel, you’re going to see the sapphire coated mineral crystal
3:04
glass which basically makes it scratch resistant. You’re going to see that they’re using a beautiful
3:08
Italian leather watch strap. It’s about 22 mm wide. Other important things to note, free
3:13
worldwide shipping. Also, look at the reviews. Guys, you can go in there and see real reviews
3:18
from men just like you who are talking about how they love these watches.
3:22
And I get notes all the time. People talking about how they got this watch and they’re
3:26
like, Antonio, I knew you said great things about this company, but I wasn’t expecting
3:31
it to be so nice especially at the price point. I’m going to link to Vincero down in the description.
3:36
Go click on that link and use the discount code I’m putting down there so you can get
3:40
the best possible deal.
3:42
Tip number three. Fit is king. Gentlemen,
3:45
understand the style pyramid. I talk about fit, function, and fabric. I’m not going to
3:49
get into fabric and function. If you want more, I go into that over at Real Men Real Style.
3:53
But, I am going to say if it doesn’t fit you, don’t buy it. Don’t even take it
3:57
if it’s free because if it doesn’t fit you, it will never look good.
4:02
Now, if it’s a little bit big, yes, you can get it fitted to adjust. And I do recommend
4:06
you know the name of your tailor and you take everything to him or her to get it adjusted.
4:11
But, if you can’t get it adjusted to fit you, if you’re not going to get it adjusted to
4:15
fit you, then don’t even bother with it because if clothing doesn’t fit on you, it doesn’t
4:19
look good. If it’s too tight, it just makes you look really bad. If it’s too loose, it
4:23
makes you look like you’re wearing your big brother’s clothing and it just makes you look
4:26
smaller. It never compliments you. So many people wear clothing that’s two sizes
4:32
too big. So, find clothing that fits you. How to do that? I’ve got plenty of infographics
4:36
over at Real Men Real Style. Talk about how a shirt should fit, how a suit should fit,
4:40
how other details how trousers should fit. Understand gentlemen, that fit right off the
4:46
rack whenever you’re buying something pay attention to that because if you nail it,
4:49
you’re going to look better and you’re going to feel better about your wardrobe and your
4:52
clothing.
4:53
Tip number four. Ignore fashion trends. Don’t
4:56
try to follow the whimsical winds of fashion. You’re not going to be able to keep up, you’re
5:00
going to spend a lot of money and you’re going to end up with a wardrobe which is going to
5:03
be outdated very quickly. Instead, look at classic men style. One of the things I recommend
5:08
is look at older pictures that a man is wearing something maybe like Steve McQueen, maybe
5:14
James Dean and say, wow, I like his look and then realize that’s a fifty-year old picture,
5:19
that’s a seventy-year old picture. And if what they’re wearing there still would work
5:24
today, that’s a classic item. Now, I list down a number of classic items
5:28
over at Real Men Real Style, but classic button-downs, a classic well-fitted suit, a classic sports
5:34
jacket, a classic leather jacket, well-fitted jeans. Don’t fall into, okay, everyone seems
5:40
to be wearing skinny thighs, everyone seems to be wearing, you know, that fit of particular
5:43
jeans that is maybe a little bit tight or is a little bit short. Be very careful with
5:49
those things because, yes, you may look good this season, but next year you’re going to
5:53
find that, hey, it’s out it out it’s out of fashion and all of sudden you’ve got that
5:57
sitting and taking up space in your closet.
5:59
Tip five. Take care of your clothing.
6:01
I do recommend that you educate yourself.
6:04
You find out, okay, how to treat stains immediately,
6:07
how to properly wash and dry certain types of clothing that are made from luxury materials
6:12
such as wool such as silk and understanding that you have to treat these things with care.
6:17
Ideally though you’ll start to build up a wardrobe which I like to stick with cottons
6:22
I like to stick with a little bit rough things that can take a little bit of a rougher beating.
6:25
And then I like to wear them again and again because what you want is something that you
6:30
can wear a hundred times before it wears out.
6:32
Tip number six. Own a quality suit that fits you well.
6:36
Let me go into a little bit more detail here. A suit is a jacket and a pair
6:39
of trousers made from the same fabric. You want to go with something that is classically
6:43
been in style for the last fifty years. So, you’re going to look at notch lapels, you’re
6:46
going to look at something that, you know, that has the right length that just barely
6:50
covers your buttocks, isn’t too short isn’t way too long.
6:53
Other little things you want to make sure that, you know, you get rid of that tack stitching.
6:56
So, open up the breast pocket over on the vents, make sure that those aren’t still sewed
7:01
together. If you still got a tag right here, make sure to take that off. Make sure it fits
7:06
you well, so every year you’re going to want to make sure and put it on, look at yourself
7:11
in the mirror and say, okay, do I need to take this to get adjusted.
7:14
Now, other things that go with the suit, you want to have a light-colored dress shirt.
7:18
We’re talking white preferably, but light blue will work as well. Then, you want to
7:22
look at going with simple ties and we’re talking a solid maybe in a burgundy maybe in a dark
7:27
blue maybe in a dark green. All of those are going to be fine or you can go with small
7:31
repeating pattern. Just make sure it’s not really attention grabber because here is why
7:36
you need a suit; someone’s going to get married, someone’s going to die, something is going
7:40
to happen. You may get recognized in your company for a top award and in those moments
7:46
when you want to feel and look like a million bucks,
7:49
that’s when your suit is going to pay dividends.
7:51
Tip number seven. Quality over quantity.
7:55
So if you’ve got a closet with tons of clothing,
7:57
but you have nothing to wear, understand that
8:00
you’ve got a quantity problem not a quality problem.
8:03
Ideally you start to build a wardrobe
8:05
that is interchangeable and everything in there is something that you love when you
8:10
put on. I’m looking at this outfit that I just threw
8:12
together and I’m like, man, I love this suede jacket. This one all egregious works for me
8:18
and I looked at this shirt, I picked it up and I I love this color. Then, I’m looking
8:22
at the dark-colored jeans I have, I’ve got these shoes right here, I just love the way
8:26
this all falls together. And this is my wardrobe that I’ve built up over time and it’s something
8:32
that I love it, but I’ve really focused in on the quality aspect of my wardrobe not the
8:38
quantity. So, now I own less, everything works together
8:42
and whenever I get dressed I feel great.
8:44
Tip number eight. Get rid of the clothing
8:47
which is distressed which is torn which is stained and you want to start to upgrade especially
8:52
your leg wear, your jeans. This is something that a lot of guys they stick with those light-colored
8:56
jeans or maybe they’ve got something distressed. Your legs aren’t something that you normally
9:00
want to draw attention to in an outfit. It’s an area which we’re going to look up and down,
9:05
it should bring the outfit together, but it’s not going to draw attention in and of itself.
9:09
So, you want to start bringing in a pair of nice dark-colored slacks, maybe look at some
9:14
chinos, get some if you want to stick with jeans, try some dark well-fitted jeans something
9:19
that’s going to and maybe bring them a little bit sizing down just a bit, I’m not talking
9:24
skinny, but I am talking maybe a slimmer or a straight cut. But, you know that big baggy
9:29
stuff you want to avoid especially in the light colors and don’t wear carpenter jeans
9:33
unless you’re a carpenter.
9:34
Tip number nine. Level up your footwear.
9:36
So, if you’re still wearing running shoes and you’re not going running,
9:39
then really rethink that
9:41
there’s so many different options out there for shoes and it is one of the things
9:45
that people make a quick judgment on. I’ve talked about this in other videos, but people
9:49
look at status they judge your wealth, they judge your position in society sometimes based
9:54
off your footwear. I know, it sounds crazy and people shouldn’t
9:57
do that, but they do. They look down and they make a quick assessment. And why not send
10:02
a signal that, yeah, I’m somebody worth talking to, I’m somebody that’s going places, I’m
10:07
somebody that you want to engage with.
10:09
Tip number ten. Throw out the t-shirts and
10:11
the hoodies. Now, I’m not going to be that extreme, but I will say that if you’ve got
10:15
a lot of graphic tees that are way too big, if you’ve got a lot of hoodies that have all
10:20
types of messages on them that are not very professional, understand that, yeah, you may
10:24
be wearing that in your off time, but if you run into your boss or you run into your boss
10:28
boss who was looking at you for a promotion, he may have second thoughts.
10:32
And, I’m not saying that you need to be wearing a suit on your off time, but you can upgrade
10:37
that, there are actually some very nice well put together hoodies. But, why not look at
10:41
some nice button-downs, why not look at polo shirts, why not look at long sleeve polos,
10:46
why not look at some really nice sweaters
10:47
which are going to functionally do the same job.
10:50
Actually, if you make sure they fit you properly they’re going to look great and when
10:54
you run into your boss’s boss he’s going to look at you and say, you know what? I think
10:58
Mike is ready for that promotion. I want you guys to succeed. And one of the
11:02
things that I push here at Real Men Real Style is for you to be able to use clothing as a
11:06
weapon to get what you want out of life. Go check out Vincero. I’m going to link to them
11:11
down in the description below. Great watch, great company. I’m proud to have them as a
11:15
paid sponsor. And, let me know in the comments, your turn
11:18
right now. What did you like about this video? What could I have made better? What could
11:22
I improve? what did I miss? what advice would you give a young man who’s just starting off
11:27
to be able to better master his style? Gentlemen, that’s it. Take care. I’ll see
11:31
you in the next video.
