#1 ‘Man Lingerie’ AKA The Suit
It’s well-known that women in lingerie look incredible. Lingerie is designed with scientific precision to make guys go “woah“.
Want to make women feel the same way? Wear a suit. Here’s how it works:
A suit jacket’s lapel adds width to your chest. The padding and structure in the top of the jacket build up your shoulders. Meanwhile, the bottom of a suit jacket is deliberately cut closer to your body to give you a tailored waist. Combine all of this together and your torso is given a strong V-shape: the idealized broad-shouldered silhouette of an athlete. What woman doesn’t love an Adonis-like physique on a man?
Suit trousers are pleated to give your thighs room BUT also create a line running up your leg that connects to the vertical seams in a suit jacket. This makes it easier for women to run their eyes up your body to your face. The uniform color and design of a suit hides the minor imbalances everyone’s body has and provides the symmetry human eyes crave. In essence, you appear taller and better-looking.
Knowing all this, why would you not wear a suit?
#2 Medieval Armour AKA The Leather Jacket
It’s no secret women love a man in a leather jacket. Perfect for more casual occasions, this classic jacket option oozes classic masculine style and sex appeal. Why does a leather jacket make a man more attractive?
To wear leather is to wear a dead animal’s skin. It speaks on a primal level to your skills as a hunter. You are a warrior women can depend on to keep them safe.
Many leather jackets also feature subtle padding to boost your shoulders and upper arms similar to a suit jacket. Extra protection also makes you look like an even tougher fighter than you already are, building on the warrior image.
Most people recognize that leather jackets are for tough guys. An often underappreciated point though is that a leather jacket also highlights a man’s big, strong hands – something women definitely look for. Leather jackets do this by having slightly longer sleeves that cover up more of your wrist. Technically these are to cover your arms when holding your arms out straight holding a motorcycle’s handlebars. The human eye is drawn to exposed skin though so hiding your wrist puts your hands better on display.
#3 Platform Shoes AKA Boots
You might not think of boots this way but it is essentially what boots are. Think about it, boots have heels that can give you as much as an extra inch!
It’s no secret women love tall men. When increasing your height is as easy as slipping on a pair of boots why not take advantage of it?
There are plenty of options out there from dress boots and Chelsea boots all the way through to heritage work boots and military-style boots. What boot style you choose will depend on your personal sense of style. It is always worth wearing boots of some kind though when the situation allows.
You should also keep in mind that leather boots make a man more attractive by having some of the same tough-guy associations as a leather jacket.
#4 A Frame For Your Face AKA The Shirt Collar
A smart shirt with a collar. You might think smart shirts are sexless items. You wear them because you have to, not because you want to. So what is a men’s shirt collar for, where is the sex appeal?
The reason is a collar widens up your neck. It makes you look more muscular.
Collars also balance and frame your face, drawing her eyes to your eyes.
Collared shirts are also a step up in formality from other men’s shirt options. If all the guys around you are wearing T-shirts then you will instantly catch a woman’s eye by looking more put-together.
Gents, even the most casual of button-down shirts makes men more attractive than a T-shirt. I suggest wearing one whenever possible.
#5 Your Grandfather’s T-Shirt AKA The Henley
Sometimes a collared shirt is too formal. Maybe you need to step things down a notch for visiting a casual bar or a backyard BBQ. That shouldn’t mean you need to step down your attractiveness though.
In these situations, opt for a Henley: a soft, collarless shirt with a short buttoned placket.
Those humble buttons on the front of a men’s Henley top create a flattering V-shape if you leave a few unbuttoned. Remember what we said about the suit giving you an Adonis-like V-shaped torso? The same effect is created on a smaller scale here.
A Henley draws a woman’s eye to the illusion of a built-up chest and a trimmer waist, the same shape as the skin this shirt exposes.
Even a man’s chest that hasn’t seen the gym in ten years will look better when framed with a great-fitting henley. Take advantage of this shirt whenever a collared shirt is a step too far.
#6 The ‘V’ AKA The V-neck T-shirt
What if even a Henley is too smart? Maybe you’re working out at the gym or in another casual scenario. How can you still up your attractiveness and look good casually?
A V-neck T-shirt is what will give you a similar look to a henley at a lower level of formality. The ‘V’ still works to emphasize your chest and does it better than the standard rounded crew neck.
Choose a fitted T-shirt in a solid shade of black for a trim silhouette. Pair this with some dark-colored jeans or chinos and you are good to go.
#7 Metal & Glass AKA Sunglasses
Eyes are the window to the soul. They tell women what you are thinking. Why make it that easy for them?
Create an attractive air of mystery by using sunglasses to hide one of the most important parts of your facial expression.
Think of it as subtly playing hard to get. Let this draw a woman in and get talking with her. Take the sunglasses off later in the conversation to avoid her remembering you as ‘the guy who wore shades all day’.
Sunglasses also create symmetry in your face just as a suit does for your body.
The reality is everyone has a very slightly unbalanced face yet the human eye is attracted to symmetry. Sunglasses give the human eye what it craves by providing an identical look on both sides of your face in a way that even the best-looking guy’s face will never do.
Everyone’s face is different and there are over a dozen mainstream sunglasses styles so click here to discover how to buy the right sunglasses for your face shape.
#8 A Sweet Or Fresh Smell AKA Fragrances
Maybe I’m cheating here because most guys keep their colognes in the bathroom. The best place for them is somewhere dark like your closet though.
Understand that the clothing you wear is just one part of being attractive. How you smell to a woman is just as important – if not more!
Which perfume is best to attract ladies? Here are four fragrances I recommend every man at least sample:
Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford
Grey Vetiver has a hint of…well, vetiver, but also the clean and refreshing smell of freshly cut grass.
- Top Notes: Citrus
- Heart Notes: Spices
- Base Notes: Vetiver, Woody Notes
Chrome by Azzaro
How would I summarize this fragrance? Think fresh, fruity and herbal here.
- Top Notes: Lemon, Petitgrain, Rosemary, Pineapple
- Heart Notes: Coriander, Jasmine, Cyclamen, Orris
- Base Notes: Cedarwood, Moss, Tonka Bean, Musk
Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani
Refreshing aquatic notes remind women of carefree days spent by the ocean.
- Top Notes: Bergamot, Neroli, Tangerine
- Heart Notes: Ozonic Marine Notes, Sambac Jasmine Essence, Rock Rose, Persimmon Fruit
- Base Notes: Cedarwood, Patchouli, Musk
Intenso by Dolce & Gabbana
Woody notes remind women of primal men hunting in their natural habitat. This is a fragrance that perfectly combines rustic wood with elegant herbs.
- Top Notes: Basil, Aquatic Notes, Marigold, Geranium
- Heart Notes: Lavender, Absolutes of Bran and Hay, Clary Sage, Cypress
- Base Notes: Sandalwood, Musk, Ambery notes, Moepel Accord, Labdanum
#9 Jeans That Fit (Especially If YOU Are Fit!)
Next to the leather jacket, jeans are the next best item of clothing you can wear to channel tough-guy associations from past generations of men. Wear leather and denim together and you have a powerful combination!
Levi Strauss created his denim jeans for California miners. They were some of the toughest guys who have ever lived, pulling valuable ore out of the ground with nothing but the strength of their bodies and a pickaxe. This mental image is subconsciously created in a woman’s mind when she sees a man in a great-fitting pair of jeans.
You can’t just pick any pair of jeans off the rack though. Find the right jeans for your body type. Here’s my advice for the majority of men:
- Choose a straight or slim cut with a slight taper for a fitted, tailored look.
- Make sure the jeans fit you in the waist and have the jeans hemmed to avoid them ‘stacking’ up at the bottom of the legs.
- It is worth spending a little more to get jeans with a better fit and higher-quality denim that lasts longer.
- Get these jeans in a dark indigo color or black for a classic look that’s also slimming.
#10 Shiny Shoes AKA Well-Cared-For Footwear
Where do you think women look first on a man?
How about his hair?
Women look at shoes first. First impressions are vital so what do you want a woman to learn about you?
If a woman sees scuffed, unpolished shoes or boots you haven’t taken care of…she’s less likely to believe you will take good care of a girlfriend. It’s that simple, gents.
Take excellent care of your leather footwear with regular polishing and conditioning so they shine like the Chrysler building. Send the message you want to send.

BONUS: Catch Her With A Shiny Lure
Watches, bracelets, rings…
They all serve to add some shine and show off your personality.
Less is more when it comes to accessorizing. Particularly in formal settings.
In casual situations though, a quality watch and a single ring or bracelet will help you stand out from the crowd and catch a woman’s eye.
Gents, let me sum up by saying with great power comes great responsibility. Put several of these items together and you are guaranteed to have a winning combination on your hands. Happy hunting!

How to wear your watch correctly
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:
- Origins Of The Wrist Watch
- What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?
- Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?
- The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch
#1 Origins Of The Wrist Watch
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?
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 $$$)
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:
- What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?
- How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?
- Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?
- What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?
#1 What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?
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?
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
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?
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.
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.
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 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
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.
