It's no secret that the Wardrobe Wire ladies love a man that puts effort into his dress and looks. Being dressed as a slob does not define your manhood. Also, putting thought into your wardrobe does not make you meterosexual. I get so frustrated when I hear someone accuse a guy for being gay simply because he cares about himself and putting his best foot forward. Such ignorance! I want the package: A man's man that dresses sharp!
When I first met one of my numerous ex boyfriends he would wear triple pleat pants that made him look like a balloon and flannel plaid button up shirts in horrific colors. "But it's Ralph Lauren and was really expensive", he'd claim. "I don't care who made it or how much it costs, it's old and ugly and I'm embarrased to be seen in public with you", I'd reply.
For those of you that weren't raised by a mother like mine, I'm going to give you a few tips on what you need to do with your wardrobe and this goes for every man of every style whether it be biker boy or broker boy.
1. Go through your closet and toss every single white shirt, casual or dress, that has turned yellow from excessive wearing and washing and/or has pit stains.
2. Look through all your dress shirts and get rid of any that have faded from drycleaning. The best place to look is the collar.
3. There is no need to keep any tshirts with holes in them. Even when lounging or working out you should still have enough pride to wear a tshirt that doesn't have holes in it. It frightens me that you would even own a shirt long enough for it to get holes in it. Toss it and buy a new $10.00 tshirt.
4. There are decent flip flops on the market that will help make your feet look not so knarly. Tevas, Crocs, Birkenstocks, Speedo or Adidas with the one thick strap that can be worn with socks is not one of them. And, please, avoid wearing them in public unless it's the beach. Keep your toes groomed!
Here are some great alternatives to some of those awful summer shoes you own: STAY FANCY!
