what makes a man attractive

We all know that guy.

The man surrounded by people who hang on his every word. He’s a leader and people respect him. He’s probably got a beautiful girlfriend or wife, an amazing house and an awesome car.

Wherever he goes – he attracts success and opportunity.

This guy has it all. But how does he do it?

It comes down to attraction.

And I’m not talking about his physical appearance. Attractive men possess key character traits which help them get ahead – and stay ahead.

So how can you emulate them? And what if you’re doing things now which make you unattractive, and you don’t even realize it?

In today’s article, I give you the 8 things attractive men NEVER do – so you know exactly what to avoid.

1. Attractive Men Don’t Stress Out & Shrink Their Brains!

You know those men that complain about EVERYTHING?

Seriously – these guys could win the lottery and they’d still complain.

A 1996 study out of Stanford University found that complaining (or even being complained to) for 30 minutes or more can physically shrink your brain!

And over a lifetime, this can shrink the left hippocampus up to 26%!

So gents – keep your stress levels in check because stressing is a complete waste of time.

Like a rocking chair, stressing gives you something to do but it won’t get you anywhere. Think about it:

  1. You can complain about things outside of your control
  2. You can complain about things inside of your control

If something’s outside of your control, you can literally do NOTHING to change it. And if something is inside your control – get off your rear end and do something about it.

“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.” – Charles Darwin

Be accountable. Don’t complain or stress – use that energy to make positive changes in your life.

 

2. Attractive Men Never Follow The Herd

man stand out from the crowd

Gents – the attractive man marches to his own beat.

He’s a leader, not a follower. I’m not advising you to avoid being part of a group – this should be an important part of your life – but don’t do things just because everyone else does.

Do something because it’s in line with your life objectives and your values.

An independent man – one who can be by himself and has unique interests, projects and experiences – is far more interesting and driven than the average male. He’s exciting and inspires curiosity, and women love this.

You’ll never learn how to be attractive as a man if you follow fashion trends, popular culture, social media, and what your parents told you was the right thing to do.

Become an attractive man by setting standards for yourself and reaching them, and by finding things which develop your character and bring joy to your life.

This doesn’t mean you give the world the finger and do whatever you want regardless of what other people do or think. It just means you should take control of your life and forge your own path.

 

3. Attractive Men Never Lack Confidence

According to the American Association for Suicide Prevention, men are 3.6x more likely to commit suicide than women. Low self-esteem and lack of confidence are top factors when it comes to male suicide.

Attractive men never lack confidence in themselves because they address their problems head-on. Those issues you complain about? Take 100% ownership and fix them. Don’t let your problems build up – they’ll consume you.

If you look in the mirror and don’t see something you like – change it. If you like what you see – awesome! You do you and do it to the best of your ability.

If you’re feeling down, talk to a friend or seek a professional’s help. There’s no shame in this – in fact, deciding to take a stand and seek help requires courage and this is honorable and admirable.

Be the hero of your own movie.

 

4. Attractive Men Never Boast

There’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance.

Confident men are self-assured. Arrogant men brag with an exaggerated sense of self-worth. Why do they do this? Because they’re insecure and they want to make you feel insecure too.

According to Dr. Susan Whitbourne (Professor Emerita of Psychological and Brain Science at the University of Massachusetts), there are 4 indicators of braggart insecurity:

  1. The braggart tries to make you feel insecure about yourself by projecting his insecurities onto you.
  2. The braggart needs to showcase his accomplishments so he continually recalls past triumphs in order to convince himself he is worthy.
  3. He “humblebrags” in the form of self-deprecatory statements which are really excuses to drop important names or identify high-status details. The braggart frequently complains things aren’t good enough.
  4. The braggart proclaims his high standards as a way of demonstrating that he is better than everyone else.

Studies show that women find men who speak less more attractive than men who talk a lot. The “strong silent type” gets a bad reputation but I think it’s useful. Choose your words wisely. Think before you speak and never brag. Don’t appear self-absorbed and insecure – you’re impressing no one.

 

5. Attractive Men Never Point The Finger Of Blame

blame

Nobody likes a man who constantly blames his problems on someone else.

You’ll make mistakes. We all do – but own up to them and learn from them. Passing the blame to someone else is like giving up the responsibility for your actions. And this is like giving away your man card. Do you really want this?

Men – especially attractive men – only point the finger of blame when justified.

“Blaming others is nothing more than excusing yourself” – Robin Sharma

The attractive man doesn’t wallow in self-pity. He doesn’t drink himself into a stupor every night. He takes action, he works to fix whatever has happened.

As I said in point 1 – focus your energy and actions only on what you can control.

 

6. Attractive Men Never Live Without Purpose

purpose

Your sole purpose in life is not to pursue women.

Read that again.

Too many guys put women on pedestals then wonder why they’re bombing out and constantly getting friend-zoned. (Or not getting any dates at all.)

This type of man becomes an overbearing, jealous and creepy stalker – and no woman wants that.

Women want men with purpose. An attractive man has a woman in his life because she enhances him but she’s not the basis of his existence.

Women are biologically attracted to men who achieve great things in life because they’re the ones who will be the best providers and fathers.

A man who is in charge of himself and his world shows authority, decisiveness and he takes the lead – and women respect this.

But a man who constantly defers to a woman in order to please and appease her is spineless and gets rejected time and time again, no matter how good looking he is or how much money he makes.

Your priority in life should be to find your purpose – something that lights you up and gives you a sense of fulfillment. If you haven’t found your purpose yet – keep searching. You will.

A sense of purpose makes you a more centered man and trust me, you’ll attract far more women than you did before.

 

7. Attractive Men Don’t Act Like Velcro

clingy man how to be attractive as a man

Attractive men don’t stick to women like Velcro. They have their own lives and their own friends.

According to University of Massachusetts psychologist Paula Pietromonaco – in 9 out of 10 clingy relationships, the person doing the clinging is doing it because they’re afraid.

You risk your life every single day. Driving a car, lifting weights, taking a walk — at any moment you could die while doing those things.

If you want to know how to be attractive as a man – you can’t be afraid to take a chance. On top of that, being clingy pushes away women. It’s unattractive.

Women want to feel loved, pampered and cared for but all relationships need space and trust. Don’t constantly check on her or be overly protective.

Focus on trusting her and giving her enough “me” time. (And you need that “me” time too!)

 

8. Attractive Men Take Care Of Their Personal Hygiene

I’ve covered the importance of your grooming game time and time again and attractive men know this. The devil is in the details and so is your attractiveness. Attractive men are always clean and well-groomed.

I’m not just talking about facial hair. Yellow teeth, nails (fingers and toes), unruly body hair, unclean shoes, dirty shirts — all of these are huge red flags for any woman. If you can’t take care of yourself, how can you take care of her?

If a woman came up to you with nails that were jagged and had dirt under them – would you be interested?

Didn’t think so.

Personal hygiene is a must for both sexes – so do your part.

 

Summary: 8 Things Handsome Men NEVER Do

In this article, I’ve explained how to be attractive as a man. Don’t stress over things you can’t control and take action when you can change something. Be confident and self-assured but never boast or brag. Don’t seek to blame others for your failures – take responsibility for them and move on.

Don’t follow the herd just to fit in. Social groups are important but you are your own man and you march to the beat of your own drum. 

Keep your life goals in sight and work tirelessly to achieve them. Don’t be clingy and spineless – your partner enhances you; you don’t live to serve them.

And finally – take care of yourself and your appearance to show you can take care of her too.

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.
