I am looking to buy some new shirts soon but I'm not really sure what to look for. I have heard I dress nice, preppy on the most part, but I don't know a lot about what is good looking to girls, and I don't have any girl friends out here (I'm visiting my family for the summer). My favorite brands are Ralph Lauren Polo and Nautica, but I already have enough Polos. I almost always wear buttonups when I'm out to a club or bar, but I'm looking for more everyday casual wear. What else do girls like? A friend suggested "fashion tees" and another suggested "fitted tees." Fitted tees to show the shape of your body more but without looking like you're a cocky meathead. Please do tell, and post pictures if possible. Where do you guys buy your clothes?
I say, wear what you want and don't worry about what people think of your style.
I do on the most part. However, I wouldn't mind looking my best for the ladies. Not to sound like a tool, but if girls like a certain look a lot, why not get it to attract more positive attention? Everybody picks up and judges someone on their appearance.
Women notice details that most men don’t. They notice if your belt and shoes match. They notice what kinds of foods you like to eat. They notice all the details and then make assumptions about every other area of your life based on these details.
I usually dress casual. I wear Calvin Klein t-shirts and i also tend to wear fitted tees because like you said, it shows the shape of my body and i have noticed that more women have been interested when they notice i'm muscular rather than when i wear shirts that are loose. Also, fitted tees seem to be more comfortable and not as "baggy" but that's just me. Other styles of clothing i wear are sports wear (Nike, Reebok, etc.) and some from Old Navy.
I understand what you are saying, I guess it depends on your priorities.
I guess this is what got me thinking about this lately.. I will be visiting an ex in California for 1.5 weeks in November, then another 1.5 weeks in December and I know a lot of pictures will be taken while I'm there. This ex is really into fashion and she always looks incredible (she goes to school at FIDM in LA). I just want to look my best for these trips. I know it's still a long time from now, but I wouldn't mind keeping my eye out for whatever look is good, maybe I'll catch it on sale. The girl friends I tend to shop with always seem to buy everything at regular price and are just high spenders in general. Not to sound stingy, but that really isn't my thing.
Thanks for the suggestions shiznit and Double D. I do keep myself pretty well groomed and I'm good about the hygiene and cologne. Don't really need any advice on meeting girls, but thanks for the tips anyway. What do you guys usually spend on fitted tees? I usually spend like $10 on t-shirts.
I think I will check out Abercrombie some time. I never really liked the store, but I will give it a try for the fitted tees. Any other stores you guys suggest I check out?
Sean John is a pretty nice line. When most people think SJ they think sweat suits and baggy stuff, but they have everything. Nice button ups, jeans, Tees, nice wife beaters (if that's possible), sweaters, dress wear, suits etc. I know you can find Sean John at Macy's.
A lot of people around here wear A/X, A & F, American Eagle and do the spiky gelled hair thing which isn't my style at all.
I just wear whatever the fuck I want. I don't care if it's old, or it has a small hole in it somewhere, or whatever. If some girl doesn't want to talk to me because of that, then she can suck my balls (Or, I guess, not suck my balls).
The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
I shop at JC Penny's/Filenes/Sears, I don't care what people say. The clothes are cheap and last. I wear plain white t-shirts and jeans 90% of the time. The only thing I go a little pricey on are shoes.
