Oh, well I need to look more mature. So how many pairs of shoes should I have? Are black and the various shades of brown they come in neutral? No more white socks, then what color?

BTW I almost never wear button up like I am in the picture. I always wear them buttoned up to the second from the top button and un-tucked. I need to get more help on what kind of shirts to wear and how to wear them, with a shirt underneath or not. Also I haven’t been able to find out what an Italian style t-shirt is. Google’s not much help.

What size necklace should I get? I mean like how long should it be, how low should it go?

Maxtro,

You are a student right? I’ am also a student so I know how the money thing sucks. You know, you don’t need to be a millionaire in order to dress the part. There are student alternatives available *grin*. I live right off the main campus of a major University so whenever I go to a local store such as: Target, Meijer or Wal-Mart to pick up a few things I notice that they are always having deals on shoes and clothes for students. I bought a pair of black suede casual shoes that look like Timberlands for $4 at a Target down the street a while back and I still wear them on occasion. The funny thing is that those pair of $4 shoes always fetch me some nice compliments, you know why? Because I take care of them, my shoes always look like new. I have a friend that I have known for 10 years now and he still has shoes from 5 years ago. I will think that he went out and bought some new ones then it turns out that he is wearing an old pair. All he did was clean them up and work them into his shoe rotation. Just because something doesn’t cost that much money doesn’t mean it is cheap. Anyway, when is the last time you had someone come up to you and ask what brand of shoe you are wearing? Make them look good, that is what really counts.

As for quantity: You don’t need an army surplus at your disposal in order to get the job done. When you buy footwear keep in mind what you are going to use them for. It is always good to at least have one alternative in case you get scratches, stains, mud or whatever on your starting line-up. Like if you have a nice pair of shoes, don’t wear them anywhere except out, and that’s only when you want to look good. Take your prized pair off as soon as you get home; there are too many things around the house that could cause harm to your shoes. Also, you don’t have to go out and buy 15 pairs of shoes tomorrow. Only buy shoes when you can afford them. If you take care of the shoes you own then you should easily be able to build up a nice supply in 8-9 months. Another important thing to remember, always keep your clothes and accessories on an evenly spread out rotation. If you get a good rotation down then there is a good chance that people will think you own a lot more than what you really have.

Okay, I just went and counted my shoes real quick; I have 10 pairs that are currently working on a 21-day rotation. They consist of: 5 pairs of casual dress shoes/boots, 3 pairs of dress shoes (Italian loafers and such), and 2 pairs of sneakers for any occasion. Now this doesn’t mean that I don’t have old shoes, I do. I have some old shoes that I keep around in case I need them for dirty work. Personally I like to go through a 1 year cycle where I build up my supply, then at the end of the year I keep the shoes that still look good and give the other ones away (friends, family or even charity will take them). You should also take into consideration that you need to replenish your junk shoes.

When I say neutral, I mean no bright colors and no designs. Colors like brown, black, grays, cherry leathers, tans, and almost any earth tones will work. I have a friend who has some nice blue Timberlands. Make sure you don’t get anything to flashy.

Necklaces:

From looking at your Me pic it looks like you have a nice sized neck in relation to your head (not in a bad way, Maxtro). I would say to get a loose one. Again this goes back to the loose neck/ low collar effect I mentioned earlier. If you go with a loose one then it will create the illusion that you have a longer chin and more prominent jaw line. The farther your necklace hangs down your chest the more it will drag your chin and jaw line down with it. As for how long it should hang, I would say that if you wear a button up shirt and have the two top buttons undone then it should barely be covered in order to maximize the effect of the illusion.

Maxtro,

I will reply to this for you in my badboy thread. Peace

Anth0079,
Yes I’m a broke college student with way too much debt. Ok so I can buy shoes that look the brands you listed for a lot cheaper. That will save me a ton of money. Wow you have a lot of shoes. Currently I have three pairs. Sneakers, dress shoes that are badly scuffed and sandals, heh and the sneakers are starting to get worn out. It’s time I bought some new shoes. So nothing too flashy then.

Ok so I’ll get a loose necklace, I was actually going to lean for a short one but I trust your judgment.

Maxtro,

Just look at rymdrattans pic in a previous post on this thread. Do you see how he is wearing a tight necklace, now look at your pic and just imagine what it would look like on you (not good bro). Of course all of this is just my own opinion, you can take it or leave it. Really it is no big deal, but you should think about it then decide for yourself. Choose which ever look makes you feel comfortable because if you feel uneasy then it will show (and we don’t want that).

p.s.

It is always good to have a pair of house shoes too.

So okey, what I found out this night…
Dancing gets you all the attention that you need.
I know I’m well above average in dancing like Justin Timberlake or Usher.
But I never thought that it would get me any attention.
My bud said to me when i made some moves, that “DAMN YOUR GOOD!”
So he asked if i could do some on the dance floor, so I did.
I never look up and around when I’m dancing for fun, but he obviously spotted
the people around me, I’m not more then average in attracting girls, but
he said to me that alot of the really hot looking chicks, checked out my move.
So I walked up and gave abit of dance/disco moves again and looked around.
And DAMN! I was stunned, I wondered, Am I ugly, crazy or why is almost all of
the girls looking and smiling at me… Pretty fascinating.

Although It was a student party, for all those who just completed their last year (me too)
so i wore costume and shirt, although I think i might stick with that style.
I’ll attach some photos to see what ya’all think.

//*cheers* räven

Hey Maxtro.. I agree with you that the magazines are way too far out there with $300 shirts(yeah right) and clothing styles that look to trendy. Some of the stuff that the Queer Eye guys put together looks a little too gay for my tastes. You can shop at places like the Men’s Wearhouse and save some $$$. The best consultant was a lady I met at MW who really knew what went together and what was in.

Believe it or not, the clothing section of the mens dept in Sears is underrated and decent priced. My wife is a huge bargain shopper but she is really good at finding things that look good for less money there. I think JC Penney has a great mens section for both casual and formal depending on your needs. Dockers, short sleeve button up shirt with a good belt and business casual shoes looks good. I had to really force myself to move past the white oxford shirts into some colors for work but it looks good and makes me feel a lot better about my appearance.

maxtro you being in the bay area are also available to a variety of great second hand clothing stores. Look around Im sure you will find a plentiful supply. These stores are nothing to laugh at and carry all top designers at cheap prices. All clothes are in top condition or store would not try to sell them. The one chain that comes to mind is Buffalo Exchange.

Well here is a picture of me at the end of today. Sorry about the quality, I’m sure I can take a better one during the day. So far its a start. I got the haircut and puka necklace today but I had that shirt for a while now (Grandma gave it to me) I’m not sure about the necklace length. It’s 18” but when I wear a normal t-shirt the necklace is hidden under. Or should I wear it over in like the 2nd pic? I also got some black casual shoes at target for $18

The next step is to see what happens with my facial hair. Also I need to buy pants and shirts. I’ll see what I can find at the discount stores that looks good.

rymdrattan, I dance like a dork. Nothing else to say.

Maxtro my dear,

The necklace looks best in the first pic. I agree with supersizeit, go for a thin gold or silver chain about the same length.

They have Wal-Mart and K-Mart and Targets in Ca, shop there. Also, go to payless for shoes (I live in that store). Also, here is a thought, try the second hand stores, can find wonderful buys and pretty decent clothes, thrift stores are my best friends.

A nice polo type shirt works wonders, as does a good cut of jean. And yes, jeans are expensive, so only get a couple pair. Nice Khakis work too.

Since it is summer, go for the tank top and nice walking shorts, not to short, not to long, not to tight, not to baggy. And if you like them, sandals.

In reality, it doesn’t mean shit what you wear, it is how you carry yourself while wearing the clothes. If you are out to impress people, then jazz up the wardrobe (I’ll be in San Diego in a week, I can help trust me). If you just want to look good, then figure out what colors are best on you and go from there. Style is a personal thing, but once you have discovered yours, you have it made.


sunny A day without sunshine is like a day without laughter :sun:

Second-hand shops are the way to go. All the best clothes I own are from thrift stores. It takes a while to sort through all the shit, but it’s worth it when you find a one-of-a-kind sweater for $15.

Thank you for the input shine. Right now gold or silver jewelry is out of my price range, or I simply can’t find anything cheap. But the puka necklace was on $8.50 Heh, I didn’t even choose the necklace I bought. I made the girl who worked there pick it out for me. Yeah I do agree that it looks better in the first pic. But can I wear it with a normal t-shirt or should I not even bother?

I never thought about polo shirts. Would they work on me? I’ll look into Kackis as well. Tank tops, do I have the body for them? lol so many questions I have. I should just try one on and see if it works.

My goal is to get girls in my age range to notice me, if that’s even possible. Right now knowing that I look good or am going to look good is helping to boost my confidence and that affects how I carry myself.

Man I really want to go shopping with a girl and have her help. I might as well try avocet8 idea of asking two random girls. Would it be ok if I asked a girl to help my shop at thrift stores? I’m still lacking in knowledge about what looks good and what doesn’t.

>>I’m still lacking in knowledge about what looks good and what doesn’t.<<

Do you have a sense, when looking around at other people, who is dressed well and who isn’t? If so, all you need to do is start analyzing how certain individuals’ styles make their holistic impression on you: you need to break down the overall “good look” into its component parts. Go to a mall and watch guys walking around. Try to notice the specific differences between those who look good and those who don’t — from the shoes they wear to the style of their hair. I know that I went from utterly unstylish to not-too-shabby when I forced myself to become more explicitly conscious of what makes other guys look good or bad, rather than just staring at hot chicks all the time :D . I suspect that this is why there is some truth to the stereotype that gay men generally know how to make themselves look better than hetero men: they spend time admiring the appearances of other good looking dudes.

Shorter Para-Goomba: Stop being so hetero in your gaze! :)

Wha?! Stop looking only at girls and notice the guys? Blasphemy!

OK, so I need to figure out who is dressed well and what makes their look good.

Out of all of the fashion tips supplied to you in the thread, this is by far the most valuable piece and the most significant. Read it again. Understand its importance. Your outer style is just a mere reflection of the inner you. ‘Nuff said.

My inner self is a shy/nervous little boy that’s been laughed at by girls his whole life and even watched one cry because she would have to be his dance partner. I don’t want to my style to reflect the inner me. I want to change my inner self and get a style that suits me. Or get a style and have the inner me reflect that.
