This first trait women find attractive is for the bold…

#1 Women Find Full Beards & Bald Heads Attractive

It’s no secret that the fine details of style and a man’s appearance are critical to his confidence.

Equally, these nuances are important to women judging a guy’s attractiveness. Grooming is necessary. It shows refinement, discipline and attention to detail.

But there are various grooming styles available to men. Many ladies like grooming that is outside of the norm. Some of the hair-related traits women find attractive are:

 

Full Beards

1,500 women surveyed by the University of New South Wales in 2014 found beards sexier in areas of the world where most men are clean-shaven. Why do women love a beard?

One advantage of a full beard is you look healthier and more youthful. The hair provides protection from ultraviolet rays, weather, and other irritants that can harm your face.

What other benefits does a beard give you?

  • Health – Another attractive trait the study found was that guys with a full beard are perceived to be healthier than those who didn’t any facial hair at all.
  • Parenting skills – Gents who have facial hair were thought to be better parents. Think about it, what lady doesn’t want the guy they date to be a good dad?
  • Masculinity – The more facial hair you have, the more masculine you are perceived as being. Participants associated these guys with authority and strength.

Having said all this, note the implication in the study. Beards will differentiate you from others if you live in North American, or European cities where most men are clean-shaven. But, if you live somewhere beards are more common such as India or rural parts of America then you need to do the opposite and shave. The important thing is doing the opposite of what the men around you are doing if you want to stand out.

 

Bald Heads

Great hair has long been touted as one of the most important things women consider when rating the attractiveness of a guy. There are always exceptions to a rule though and being bald is the exception here. To be clear, I’m not talking about gents who are balding or have thinning hair. I’m referring to the gents who take a razor or clippers and deliberately rid themselves of their locks.

Men who sport the ‘Mr. Clean’ look are often said to:

  • Look crisp – bald guys don’t get bedhead or have sweaty hair plastered all over their head after a tough workout. They also don’t have to worry about random bits of hair sticking up throughout the day.
  • Be manlier – Hollywood has had a role in forming this opinion. Think about Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, etc. Many of the rugged macho protagonists who save the day in movies are clean-shaven. What can I say? Women love a hero.
  • Emphasize other features – with less attention paid to your hair, more will be paid to other parts of your face or body. If you have a particularly nice smile it may seem even better without hair on your head.
  • Be more confident – It takes a great deal of courage to part with your hair. Women recognize and appreciate that bold streak in your personality.

Losing your hair is something that can be dreadful for many men. So much so, that a lot of guys hold on to their thinning hair when they probably shouldn’t.

 

#2 Women Love A Good Story Teller

Knowing how to tell a tale can be a sexy trait. A series of studies conducted by researchers at The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and State University of New York found that storytelling is a desirable trait in men because it conveys high status.

One of the authors of the study states “storytelling ability reflects a man’s ability to gain resources. Good storytellers may be more likely to influence others or to gain positions of authority in society.”

In order to tell a captivating tale, you have to be:

  • Able to display a great sense of humor to keep people engaged
  • In-tune with social cues and body language to know how to work your audience
  • Fearless enough to speak about personal experiences (sometimes someone you’ve just met!)
  • Comfortable being in the spotlight

There is also a physiological response to a great story. When someone is telling a fascinating story with some sort of emotional trigger (conflict, tension, resolution), it releases a rush of chemicals:

  • Cortisol that makes you pay attention
  • Oxytocin causes you to feel empathy with the characters
  • Dopamine makes you feel good when the story has a happy ending

These chemicals draw the listeners in and connect them with the speaker. From a romantic stance, these responses can be the foundation for attraction.

 

being in a group is attractive

Sounds funny, right? But, a 2013 study published in Psychological Science found people were rated as more attractive when they were part of a group. When a woman looks at a group of guys, her brain tends to ‘average out’ the facial features of all the gents in the group. This makes all of their faces look more average than they would on their own.

Calling someone average-looking might not sound like a compliment. Drew Walker, from the University of California, explains “average faces are more attractive, likely due to the averaging out of unattractive idiosyncrasies.” In essence, being in a group hides any traits you have women don’t find attractive.

Another school of thought is women look for the assumed roles of each guy in a clique. Generally speaking, someone will emerge as the leader, another guy may be the charming one in the bunch and so on. By observing the dynamics of the group, a woman can pick out the personality trait that’s most attractive to her – it might be charm, intelligence, humor, everyone is different.

 

#4 Women Love A Man In Textured Clothing

traits women find attractive include texture

Wearing textured clothing can activate different emotions and associations in people. It seems odd, I know, but consider how touching a soft throw blanket will calm you. Or how about when you touch satin, it can conjure up sensual feelings.

Textured clothing is no different. There are all kinds of overtones women will assign a guy based on the type and texture of the fabric that he is wearing.

  • Leather is associated with masculinity. It’s tough and rugged – creating the mental image of a guy who has been doing a hard day’s work in the sun.
  • Denim is strong but when broken in is very comfortable. Ladies may think that a man who sports it is tough on the exterior but is gentle and kind at his core.
  • Knit textures like cashmere cause women to want to touch your sweater.

#5 Women Find Men With Gray Hair Attractive

women love gray hair

The University of Abertay found in a 2010 study that women of all ages and levels of wealth prefer older men. In short, women are turned on by gray hair.

It may be a set of the population, but they say that they love it.

It’s important to note – not everyone will be attracted to you but you can never please everyone in life. It’s better to be on the extreme side and have someone who is crazy for it than choose a middle-of-the-road option and not win over anyone.

We can thank legends like Sir Sean Connery and George Clooney for this. Gray hair communicates distinction and sophistication. When a guy has grays, he’s often thought to be wise and a bit of a silver fox.

If you are a younger gent and grey hair is creeping up, embrace it – wear it as a badge of honor. Confidence can be magnetic and draw in a woman. The juxtaposition of your young face with graying hair is an edgy style element that will translate well. It becomes a conversation piece!

But wait, there’s more! Here are some other associations with gents that have a bit of ‘salt and pepper’:

  • Maturity
  • Healthy life experiences
  • Thoughtful, wise and well-read
  • Makes a woman feel safe

Are you an older gent who wants to know how to wear gray hair without looking old? Click here to discover how.

Let me sum up by saying a healthy combination of the traits women find attractive will be most effective for men. Catch a woman’s eye with your distinctive facial hair, keep her focused on you with an incredible story and win her over with the confidence you wear your grays. Don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd, gents!

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.
