Women. They’re amazing and fun to be with. Sadly, they can also be hard to attract.

Ever seen the movie Hitch? If not, it’s worth a watch. Will Smith teaches a dork how to win the affections of a gorgeous socialite.

It’s got a lesson every man can learn: to get a woman interested, all you need to do is nail that first impression.

The truth is, women size you up as soon as they notice you, ticking good and bad boxes off their mental checklists.

How do you nail the first impression? Work on these 10 daily habits for men to be more attractive.

Daily Habit #1 – Make People Feel Important

Here’s the thing. People are impressed by men who seem to be known by everyone around them.

These are men who walk into a bar or a coffee shop and are instantly recognized by the staff.

Men who know their names and have built real relationships. That’s admirable and refreshing, especially in this age of smartphones and social media.

You want to be the guy who values in-person connections more than his Twitter or Facebook feed.

Why? Because it makes others feel more important; like you’re not just someone who’s got his own exclusive circle.

If women notice you getting that kind of recognition in public places, they’ll see it as proof that you’re an awesome guy. And who wouldn’t want that for a first impression?

Daily Habit #2 – Cook Your Own Meals

Everybody wants to be healthy. But the harsh reality is you can’t purchase health over the counter. You’ve got to earn that healthy body by eating right. Here are a few guidelines to follow:

Find a diet that works for you and your lifestyle (not someone else’s).

  1. Always document and pay attention to what enters your stomach. Figure out which foods work for or against your health goals.
  2. Avoid eating food that comes through your car window (you know what I mean).
  3. Cook your own meals.
  4. Shop on the outside aisles of the supermarket.
  5. Always read the ingredients. If something has an ingredient you can’t pronounce, don’t eat it.
  6. Eat sweets in small, controlled amounts.
  7. Drink lots of water. When you have a choice, choose water over iced tea or soda.

Daily Habit #3 – Brush Your Teeth After Every Meal

habit of brushing teeth makes you more attractive

Your teeth are an underrated asset. Make them a priority. This means brushing after meals (or least using floss during lunch breaks), brushing with circular motions, and using mouthwash.

Do you tend to brush unevenly or lazily? An electric toothbrush might be a good investment for you. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Although it’s not a daily habit, seeing your dentist becomes more important as you age. Do it AT LEAST every six months. It’s not just for cleaning and polishing, but also for checking on the sealants for your teeth. (If you haven’t already had sealants placed in, now’s the time.)

Don’t think too much about the costs of these dental procedures. The money spent is more than worth showing a great smile every day.

Daily Habit #4 – Exercise For At Least 30 Minutes

Man Gym Exercise Workout

I don’t know your morning habits. From personal experience, there’s a huge advantage to spending 30 minutes to an hour of exercise in the morning. It goes hand in hand with eating healthy.

If you spend the morning outside being active, the endorphins produced will do wonders for the rest of your day.

You’ll be more alert, more energized, and you’ll have a better attitude about work and everything else. Regular exercise allows you to look and feel more attractive.

Daily Habit #5 – Get 7-8 Hours Of Sleep Every Night

habit of good sleep helps you look more attractive

Whoever said “sleep is for the weak” clearly doesn’t understand the human body. It’s a machine. It needs to recharge from time to time.

Try to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Be consistent with the time you hit the sack. Our bodies like getting into a rhythm in terms of rest and activity periods.

What plenty of rest does is prevent you from stressing out. Instead of huge eye bags or fatigue or anxiety, you’ll spend your days with a relaxed and positive mindset.

Then that’ll positively impact your aura and body language wherever you go. And women definitely prefer relaxed guys to the stressed type.

Daily Habit #6 – Practice Eye Contact

Couple-Eye-Contact

This one can be tricky. While it’s rude not to look people in the eye (especially during conversations), doing it too much or for too long might make others think you’re a psycho.

Figure out how much eye contact works best for you. A large part of that depends on your situation and culture. In general, men are the ones who initiate eye contact in romantic settings, while women have a tendency to use their peripheral vision more while they check out a guy.

Really attractive women don’t give out as much eye contact as they receive.

If you look at a woman’s eyes for too long, you might make her feel uncomfortable around you. Watch out for certain signals:

  • Does she quickly look away once you’ve made eye contact?
  • Does she hold your gaze for few seconds before turning her head?
  • Does she actually smile while looking into your eyes?

Watch for these signals and others. Learn what to do when you make eye contact with women. Master this skill and respond accordingly.

Daily Habit #7 – Wear Clothes That Build Up Your Shoulders

wearing sports jacket build men shoulders and makes you look attractive

Studies reveal that men become 12% more attractive by wearing shirts with a distinct T-shape. Why? They create the illusion of a stronger chest and well-built shoulders.

Add some tailored blazers or sports jackets to your casual wardrobe, as well as casual button-downs with chest pockets. Look as built and masculine as your clothes allow you to the first time a woman sees you. You can worry about the gym later.

Daily Habit #8 – Be Yourself

You are nobody else but yourself. Why copy others to the point of losing sight of who you are? Your individuality makes you more attractive in the long run.

Follow the old cliché and just be yourself when you’re around women. Don’t play games like you’re ready to score – that only works for guys on TV. You have to be all right with who you are, or no one else will be.

If a woman likes you, you’ll know it without having to fake or force anything. Resist every temptation to act desperate and clingy. Relationships need time to get serious.

Daily Habit #9 – Live In The Present

Have you ever seen Dead Poets Society? I have a soft spot for that movie because of Robin Williams’s message about “carpe diem” – seize the day.

Today is a gift. Shut the door on your past, including your exes and relationships that ended badly. Look to the future, but never treat the present like you’re just “going through the motions.” Embrace it and let it give you the confidence to smile and greet people anywhere you go. Women will be more drawn to you as a result.

Daily Habit #10 – Go The Extra Mile

Attractiveness doesn’t come down to solid facts or formulas. Most of the time, it goes way beyond looks.

Physical attraction may draw people in, but it’s your actions and intentions that ultimately keep others close or drive them away.

That’s why it’s a lot better to give more than you take. You can be an average Joe in the looks department, but if you’re visibly thoughtful and generous, a lot of women will adore you.

Those ladies won’t care about your Instagram following or your career. They’ll want to be around you simply because you’re a good man. And those ladies are the ones worth impressing.

Bonus Habit – Get A Daily Skincare Routine

A solid daily skincare routine is essential if you want to look your best.

Always use high-quality skincare products made from natural ingredients. Most off-the-shelf products are filled with chemicals, artificial fragrances and alcohol. This can result in dry skin, irritation, and premature aging.

Look for ingredients like:

  • Aloe Vera Leaf Juice – nourishes and hydrates your skin
  • Kakadu Plum Fruit Extract – rich in Vitamins C and E, folic acid and carotenoids – reduce symptoms of aging, reduces dark circles under the eyes
  • Walnut Shell Powder – Finely crushed walnut shells gently exfoliate dry dead skin cells on the body.
  • Coconut Oil – Ideal for repairing damaged skin. It is an effective moisturizer suitable for all types of skin. A safer alternative to mineral oil for preventing dryness and flaking of the skin, it also delays wrinkles and sagging of skin.
  • Cinnamon Leaf Oil – Embraced by both Asian and European cultures for centuries, this essential oil is used to treat muscular and joint aches and pains.

For a simple, effective routine you only need three products.

  1. Start off with a facial cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and other pollutants from the skin.
  2. Next up, use a face scrub to gently remove rough skin and dead skin cells.
  3. Finish with a natural face moisturizer that keeps your skin hydrated and smoothes and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead.

These habits should help you overcome any hesitations or doubts you feel about yourself. Promise me you’ll work on them. Remember to wake up each morning thinking it’s another day to seize by showcasing your best self. And soon, being attractive will become second nature.

How to wear your watch correctly

Published

on

As much as you won’t like hearing this, you’re probably wearing your watch wrong.

It’s not your fault; you may have never been taught how to wear a watch properly. After all, there is more than one way to wear a watch.

But how do you know which way is the right way?

Don’t worry, gents; as always, I’ve got you covered. I’m here with the best way to wear your favorite timepiece properly and look as stylish as ever.

In today’s article, I’ll be covering:

  1. Origins Of The Wrist Watch
  2. What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?
  3. Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?
  4. The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

#1 Origins Of The Wrist Watch

old watches

When it comes to wearing a watch correctly, it’s important to note why the wristwatch came about in the first place.

Dating back to the 1800s, the first watches modified to be worn on the wrist were primarily worn by women as accessories. One of the earliest was created by Patek Philippe as a fashion accessory.

At the start of the 20th century, watchmakers became intrigued about using a wrist-worn timepiece for men in the military. They believed it would help them tell time quickly while on the battlefield.

Watchmakers started modifying pocket watches to fit on a bracelet worn on the wrist. Men would not wear the first iteration of the modern wristwatch until well into the 20th century.

Then developed as a ‘trench watch’ for military use, the earliest wrist watches offered something the pocket watch didn’t have – convenience.

After the wristwatch became less of a fashion accessory and more of a functional tool, watchmakers would spend the next century modifying them into the modern wristwatches we enjoy today.

#2 What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?

The age-old question: what wrist to wear a watch on? The answer – it depends.

The reason it depends is that since the creation of the wristwatch, men have mostly worn their watch on their non-dominant wrist. And since most people are right-handed, you would wear your watch on your left wrist.

But this isn’t always the correct answer. You may want to wear your watch on the right wrist if you are left-handed. But you may also want to wear it on your dominant hand.

So how do you know for sure?

The most significant benefit of wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is that you can quickly put the watch on and navigate the dial more efficiently than with your non-dominant hand.

Wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is less likely to damage the watch as you tend to do more with your dominant hand. If you were to wear it on your dominant hand, you’re more likely to scratch or ding the watch than on your non-dominant hand.

So the rule of thumb here is to wear your watch on your non-dominant hand for the best way to navigate and protect your watch.

#3 Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?

watch facing inside

The next question is, why would a man wear his watch facing inward on his wrist instead of outward?

This trend is seen primarily in individuals who need to check their watch frequently and in the most efficient way possible. Among the many reasons you should wear a watch, one of the most common is to support you in your profession.

You will see men in the military do this, as it’s easier and prevents sun glare better than when it’s on the outside of the wrist. It also offers faster convenience to other tools on the watch in addition to the time.

Another reason you may want to wear your watch facing inward is that it can help protect your watch from scratches and dings. Again, this is just a preference.

But you’re a stylish guy looking for the best way to wear his watch. What should you do?

The answer here is to wear it facing outward, as that is the most common way to wear a wristwatch. It shows off your timepiece that you love while also still being functional.

Unless you’re in a profession where you need to check your watch quickly while managing other tasks, the best way is to have your watch facing outward. After all, you probably didn’t spend money on that beautiful timepiece to hide its character.

#4 The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

Now it’s time to find out exactly how to wear a watch in the most stylish way a guy can.

Assuming you’ve selected the right size watch for your wrist, the first thing you want to do is figure out if you’ll be wearing your watch on your right or left wrist.

As mentioned above, traditionally, the watch is worn on your non-dominant wrist. So if you’re right-handed, this means wearing your watch on your left wrist. For left-handed guys, this means your right wrist.

After you figure that out, it’s quite easy. The first thing you want to do is locate your wrist bone.

You want to wear your watch face up just above your wrist bone. If done correctly, your watch should slightly peek out from under the cuffs of your shirt when wearing long sleeves.

Next, you want to tighten the strap so it’s loose enough to be comfortable. You don’t want it so loose it can spin freely around your wrist. You also don’t want it too tight, or it will feel uncomfortable, especially when you bend your wrist.

After doing this correctly, you’ll be wearing a watch in the most stylish way possible.

There you have it, gents.

Now you no longer have to worry about wearing your watch incorrectly.

There is more than one way to wear a watch, so find what’s most comfortable for you personally, and rock your favorite timepiece accordingly.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Preparation (Buy Now and Get $$$)

Published

on

We’ve all been there – fall comes around, and you open your closet only to find you have nothing but polos and shorts.

So what’s a stylish guy to do? Pay a premium to build an entire fall wardrobe last minute? Sure, if you’re loaded. But not every guy is that lucky!

Don’t worry; as ever, I’ve got you covered. In today’s article, I’ll show you how to get the best bang for your buck when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

We’ll be covering:

  1. What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?
  2. How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?
  3. Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?
  4. What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

#1 What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?

man in closet

One of the most common headaches guys run into in their closet is having too many clothing options to choose from but not enough of the right options.

While more options aren’t bad, they can be overwhelming, especially when you rarely wear most items. This is where building a capsule wardrobe comes into play.

A capsule wardrobe is a limited selection of clothing items that complement each other. This means you can buy a smaller selection of items and create a larger number of outfits.

This is crucial to understand because most guys don’t have an unlimited budget for buying clothes. A capsule wardrobe allows you to purchase and use items frequently with little redundancy.

But where do you start in building your fall capsule wardrobe?

#2 How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?

fall clothing items

After you have put together the perfect capsule wardrobe, you can start to add a few fall-specific items. This is done by adding a few staple pieces that complement what you already have.

For most, fall offers mild temperatures mixed with slightly warmer temperatures.

This means that layering will be of the utmost importance because you may leave the house needing a jacket, but it might be warm enough by midday to sport only the t-shirt underneath.

Start with the basics when building your fall capsule wardrobe and add pieces accordingly.

Keep It Simple

Fall is primetime for layering, so you only need a few outer layers and should focus more on the innermost layers.

You want to make sure that interchangeability is at the top of your list when it comes to your wardrobe. Everything should complement each other for ease of use.

With that said, having a few staples and adding additional items as you change seasons is essential.

For this reason, ensure you have the following items in your fall capsule wardrobe:

  • A dark three-piece suit 
  • A light-colored tweed blazer
  • A leather bomber or biker jacket
  • An overcoat (dark or light)
  • A formal button-up shirt (white)
  • 2 casual button-up shirts (flannel or chambray, you choose)
  • 2 sweaters (1 shawl, 1 crew neck)
  • 2 t-shirts (1 white, 1 black,)
  • 2 pairs of Jeans (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 pairs of slacks/chinos (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 belts (1 black, 1 brown)
  • 1 pair of black dress shoes
  • 1 pair of brown oxfords (leather or suede, you decide)
  • 1 pair of sneakers (plain white or brown)
  • 1 pair of military boots (black or brown)

When it comes to accessories like watches, scarves, or gloves, you can use what you have as most men won’t need all of them, so I won’t count them in.

#3 Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?

As it is the middle of summer, fall will be approaching quickly.

Now is a great time to snag up some of last year’s sale items at department stores as they usually have sales on previous season items. By now, most men aren’t thinking about what to wear in the fall.

While you still might be able to find good deals on last year’s fall items, it’s usually the most optimal time to purchase these items after the season has ended. This is when retailers try hard to clear space and make room for the next season’s clothing.

When they do this, it is a great time to get excellent deals on items that have just gone out of season.

Another great option to buy men’s clothing is online at your favorite retailers, as they will often have sales and discounts on items they have in their online inventory but are not yet in prime season.

The most expensive items in your fall capsule wardrobe are the ones you want to focus on, as you can often save a significant amount of money out of season for them.

These big ticket items include:

  • Your dark three-piece suit and blazer
  • Overcoats and jackets
  • Dress shoes and sneakers
  • Boots

These items will be some of the most expensive items and can be found discounted out of season. Put these at the forefront of your fall capsule wardrobe search.

#4 What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

man shopping for clothes

You want to adhere to a few staples when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

Since fall weather can vary, layering will be essential. These few items are crucial as mainstays that can be layered with other items within your wardrobe.

For example, if you experience a rather chilly day in fall and need to wear a suit, an overcoat is essential as that outermost layer because you can simply remove it when you no longer need it.

When it comes to the concept of layering within your fall capsule wardrobe, you want to make sure you nail these following items.

Overcoats

man wearing overcoat

Having a good overcoat to complement your fall capsule wardrobe is crucial.

The overcoat acts as the outermost layer and will be removed whenever you go indoors. This makes for a great option as you can wear it with anything as it offers excellent versatility.

When searching for the perfect overcoat, it’s essential to know your size as they usually come in sizes of suit jackets, not regular sizing. After you’ve nailed the size, focus on color.

Dark-colored overcoats tend to be the most versatile. However, a light camel color can work as well. Stay away from patterns with overcoats as the goal is to be as versatile as possible.

Leather Jackets

leather jackets

A good leather jacket goes a long way. You can choose a leather biker jacket or a leather bomber; it’s your call.

Biker jackets can be slightly harder to pull off as most of the time, they will have a larger and more aggressive collar, but they still look great.

A leather bomber jacket is an excellent option because it looks great on all body types and often has more options than biker jackets.

For color, opt for black or dark brown, as that gives you the most versatility with other items in your fall capsule wardrobe.

Sweaters

man wearing sweater

Sweaters are to fall, what t-shirts are for summer. This means they are a critical piece as they are season specific and offer great versatility when it comes to layering.

So how do you find the perfect sweater?

You want options, so have a couple of different collar choices to give yourself the most bang for your buck.

Having a shawl neck sweater and a crew neck sweater ensures you have all your bases covered.

Make sure you choose neutral tones such as greys, creams, and tans for color. This ensures maximum versatility with other items within your wardrobe and gives you the most options.

That’s it, gents.

The Best Zara Fragrances

Published

on

We all know of Zara and I’m pretty sure the majority of us own at least one piece from them, but I’m not here to talk about their reasonably priced clothing, I’m here for their fragrance.

Not quite a hidden gem but I don’t feel that they vast range and high quality fragrance that they create is given enough air time, I’m about to change that. The fragrance game is massive at the moment, everyone from the big fashion houses all the way to footballers have a scent on the market and they all carry a hefty price tag, with some of the bigger hitters asking in excess of

£100 for 50ml.

Zara clearly understand the need for a great fragrance but also appreciate not everything has to be overly expensive. I’ve been lucky enough to sample my fair share over the years and wanted to share with you what I feel are some of their strongest.

Tobacco Collective 100ml – £16.99

This is one of my absolute favourites, it works perfectly as an everyday scent. The initial smell is strong and masculine but with undertones of vanilla bourbon help to soften it slightly.

For Him 100ml – £22.99

My current daily spray, its warm, modern and intense. It just so happens to be the perfect blend of three of my favourite scents, bergamot, cardamom and sandalwood. It’s strong yet light, never over powering and leaves a wonderful trail.

Florence 100ml – £16.24

Summer calls for a fresh fragrance and I cannot recommend this highly enough, its light, fresh and citrus scent is perfectly for those warmer days. Notes of black pepper, strawberry and guaiac wood allow this scent to sit gently on the skin with offending the noses of those around you.
