Being a sharp dressed man has its benefits. Here are five things that a sharp dressed man never says, and the five benefits of being one.
1. “Excuse me! I’ve waited 30 minutes to get an appointment.”
Are you afraid of being disregarded? Dress as if you’re a non-event.
However, there are limitations in this case – if you’re going to a posh well-respected restaurant at its peak popularity, simply wearing a nice dress isn’t going to help you get in faster.
Anyone who goes to an event like that will be dressed in a professional suit.
However, for the majority of it’s a matter of dressing like someone with a little of authority and status in the world, others are more likely to be sure that you’ve been paid attention to.
2. “I’m not a student!”
This is particularly a major issue for males living in college towns . The less polished you look the more likely it is that people will think you’re an uni student.
This is useful when you’re trying to get into an “free admission for current students” concert, without having to pay the admission fee but the rest the time, assuming that you’re actually an undergrad, you’re likely not to want to be confused with one of them.
Change the jeans into slacks, change the shirt with a collar and then put a nice belt and shoes.
In a flash, nobody could ever confuse you with an undergraduate student while he’s rushing between classes.
3. “Only shallow people care about how you look.”
This is usually the reason for the guy who walks out in dirty T-shirts and pants, but then complains about the experience with women.
It’s got a certain appeal as an argument, mainly because it makes an undressed man feel not just excused but also justified as he’s the smart, mature man in this situation!
A burgundy bow tie is a timeless and sophisticated fashion accessory, perfect for any sharp dressed man. It’s a great way to add class and style to an outfit without too much effort.
A floral tie is a perfect way to show off your style and make a statement. Whether you’re heading out for a night on the town or just want to impress in the office, nothing looks quite as sharp as a man confidently wearing a floral tie. Not only does it add an eye-catching element to any outfit, but it also helps to bring out the colors in your shirt and suit.
Guys who are dressed “sharp” to attract women and aren’t concerned about their appearance are easily spotted in crowds.
4. “Sorry – I’d give you a coat if I had one.”
It’s a small detail but those who dress smart are likely to have extra layers in their wardrobe all the time.
A well-dressed gentleman doesn’t have additional layers of clothes to give it to his girlfriend on the cold evenings out. He knows how a blazer adds an appearance, but a button-down shirt is enough.
However, most times the time, if a friend (and particularly a woman) is undressed and feeling the chill, those who’ve dressed up may wear a jacket, sweater, or another top layer to hand and an appropriate-looking layer beneath it to ensure that giving up the outfit will not be embarrassing.
5. “I’m not going to rob you.”
You think profiling isn’t a thing? Go for a stroll in a neighborhood with a high-end feel wearing unattractive clothes and observe the time it takes for a squad car to pass through the streets and give you the check-up. When your complexion is darker, the effects is more extreme.
Police officers base their assumptions on appearance as the rest of us. If you’re dressed appropriately the moment they first see them, it’s likely to give them a better impression regardless of the circumstance.
This is useful when you’re out walking at night, or if there’s a major occasion taking place, and you’re surrounded by a large police presence. They’re not considering the man in the stylish jacket and dress shirt as a possible troublemaker.
Dress professionally and do not worry about giving an officer a bad impression.
