Dress to impress

From bad to great - dressing tips for guys

Go from bad to great with our easy tips. Are the first two guy’s clothes your idea of dressing up for a night out? If so, you need to seriously rethink what you’re doing.

So here is quick list on how to dress to impress: it’s easy, costs nothing and will make you stand out.

Sports are for guys

Jerseys are appropriate attire at sports games, in bars and in any room whose title includes “man,” “cave” or “lair”. When in sight of your girlfriend (or any other female), leave the jersey at home.

Shirts – clean and ironed

This should go without saying, but the number guys on dates with a ketchup stain on their shirt is impressive. And while we’re on the topic of shirts, if you’re going out for a nice dinner, wear something with buttons, or a collar, or if you can afford it, both buttons AND a collar. Hell, go crazy – iron your shirt. Don’t know how? Click here for a crash course in ironing by a super sexy lady.

Pants that fit!

If you like your pants to be looser fitting, do this simple test: how many people can fit in your pants? If the answer is more than “just me,” you need to go a little tighter. If you like your pants to fit toight like a tiger, stand in front of a mirror and look at your crotch: can see an outline of your penis – alternatively called a camel tail? They might be too tight, just saying.

Leave the running shoes at home. There is nothing worse than seeing a guy who ruins an outfit with a beat up pair of sneakers. Try to find something that’s made from an animal product, such as leather (sorry vegans!). Failing that, choose something that doesn’t have “technology:” no mesh vents, vibrant colors, shock absorbers or anything else like that.

If you’re having a hard time figuring this out, the simpler the better. One of the first things a girl notices are shoes, plus a little extra height never hurt any dude. A good pair of shoes will last years and of all things to invest in, shoes should be at the top of your list.

Groom thyself.

Guys might not care, but the ladies do. When out with the lady-friend, try to make sure that your hair isn’t sticking out at weird angles like you just woke up. Wash your face, brush your teeth and put splash on some cologne; yes, we feel like your mother. You don’t have to spend hours in front of the mirror in order to make yourself look presentable. Dogs do it, so can you.

From the Simpsons:

Moe: So Lenny, let’s say you pull a thorn outta the Pope’s butt, and he grants you one wish, what’ll it be?
Lenny: Hmm, only one, huh? Well… I’ve always wondered what it’d feel like to wear something that’s been ironed.
Carl: [whistles impressed] That’d be sweet. What about you, Moe?
Moe: Ah, gee, I was gonna say a night with Joey Heatherton, but an ironed shirt… damn, that’s tempting.
