How To Look Good

Answer on looking good:

I for one noticed a huge difference when I dress better. I try to strike a balance between looking like I don’t care while still dressing nicely. I tend to lean more towards the dressy side, but I try not over do it. I have a friend who uses the “I don’t give care about my looks” look — but even his unkempt appearance is so calculated.

Walking the streets of New York city everyday when I go to my job, I get lots of looks. Especially when I dress better. I usually wear boot cut gap pants (get the cut called Hipster — I had two comments from hotties at work specifically about the pants.. this was the first day I wore them)

I have a nice pair of black square front Skechers with just a slightly chunky sole — not too much though, you don’t want to look like your wearing platforms. You can buy 300 dollar shoes, but most women won’t know the difference. If you feel better over-paying for a stupid piece of leather, go ahead. what really matters is that they are new and clean.

Also, if you you work out like I do and like to show it, get a shirt that fits snugly, but not too tight — and the sleeves shouldn’t be too short. You want to have just enough to have a little bicep showing. I listen to girls talk about this shit all the time in the lunchroom at the office. They think that tight shirts with super short sleeves can look a little gay. Girls like confidence, but modesty is hot also. There’s a Venezeulan girl at my office who says exactly what’s on her mind. She told me that she likes how she can see my shape under the shirt, but she can’t see what I had for lunch. It still depends on your personality…if you’re built like Wesley Snipes and like wearing a fitted shirt to show off your hard work, then go ahead, but MOST girls think it looks cheesy.

Funky button-down shirts are great also. Again, go in the middle somewhere — you don’t want to look like you’re in the Russian Mafia or something(with a big ass collar and wild colors, but don’t get one of those Macy’s button-down collar dress shirts either. H + M might be cheap, but if they don’t have some cool looking button-downs for about 20 bucks a pop.(not crazy about the rest of their stuff) I get sick when I look in the back of Maxim at their style section and see some disgruntled model wearing a $200 dollar t-shirt and a $450 dollar pair of pants.

A cool hair cut can’t hurt either.

If you care about your appearance, girls will notice.

Additional Tips on Looking Good:

Another look is preppy which is a dressy casual style. Short sleeve solid color polo knit shirts (white and navy are the classic colors), solid-color canvas short-sleeve shirts (stick with solids and you can wear strong colors without looking like a side show attraction), long sleeve button down white oxford cloth shirts; khakis in tan, olive, and black; thin wool sweaters in solid neutral colors.

Finally the other classic looks work too. Jeans that aren’t faded too much with a bright white T-shirt (with no logo or screen printing on it), or all black: black jeans, black T-shirt, black shoes. Just be sure all the blacks are the same shade or really close

I really notice a difference in the way girls look at me when I’m wearing nice clothes, as many guys say, it’s not all about the looks… but it helps!

A few years ago I was under the impression that was one of the worst looking guys in the world. This was just my perception… and it was false. Since then I’ve been buying nice clothes, going to the gym and really watching what I eat.

Now? I’d actually consider myself good looking.. you can really go from ugly duckling to pua.
