Bad Boy Looks
What’s your style? What suits you best?
We’re gonna answer all these questions for you, but first, let me say to you something really important.
Starting to dress good skyrocketed my results with the cold approach. Read that again.
The first impression in the cold approach strategy is very important. Actually, the first impression is all you got.
What are your thoughts when you see a guy in a suit? Businessman, wealth (power), high status (power), Authority. All attraction triggers.
Obviously, it depends on the surrounding. If you are on your day job and everyone is wearing a suit, then you are not special with suiting down.
However, if you go on a nightclub, or festival where everyone is dressed poorly and you show up in a suit, that is an instant attraction. Or, if you are approaching a girl on a street in a suit and so on.
The point being is that you should dress differently than the others in your surrounding and suit down will do that for you in most situations.
Now, maybe you are a guy that doesn’t like wearing a suit (too bad you never give it a chance), and that’s fine. Maybe you are a casual type of guy or you like the bad boy looks. Whatever it is, make sure you stick out.
How to find your style?
If you are like me a few years back, and you are a noob on fashion and dressing, you don’t really know what suits you best.
Best advice you can get is to dress differently than your personality. Wtf? What does this mean?
Well, if you are a guy with classes and skinny, suiting up will make you look richer but that would be it. You’re gonna radiate a bill gates vibes.
What you should do instead is to try to dress like a bad boy. Jacket, maybe boots, short haircut and so on. This is just an example.
On the other hand, if you look masculine, adding that extra bonus points with suiting up are very good. Dressing as a bad boy would be “too much”. Instead, command authority with a good suit.
Now, all of this doesn’t matter unless you EXPERIMENT with things. You need to try different things and see:
- In what clothes you feel most comfortable
- How do people react to you? (people you meet, not your friends)
And there is not a possible way of knowing this unless you TRY different things.
The most important thing is how you feel. Because if you are feeling good in your clothes, it’s going to reflect on your game, overall appearance and the impression you make.
It’s a good thing if you go to the store and try different things, but your gonna need more time. Try certain clothes for 2-3 days. Then you will know if it actually suits you or not.
Anyways, if you are reading this it means you are fully aware of the importance of good looks. So let’s get right to the 4 different styles I’m going to present you in this ultimate guide on how to dress as a man.
When a guy is dressed in professional attire, he’s communicating high status. He is taking care of himself and he is doing some serious business. He must be at some high-level position in his company, and you are sure he is not poor.
His outfit says that his focus is sharp, that he’s intellectually capable and he’s intent about the work that needs to be accomplished
He is on a mission, and guys that are on a mission are highly attractive.
There is a high level of respect that comes with this look. Let’s take a look.
This is your usual business style. Make sure colors match and pick a suit that will match your body. Anyways, here are my recommendations:
This one is classic. Basically everything you need to look like a boss. But my personal favorite:
You have this one for fit/slim body type in different colors, even red. Make sure you double check the size of pants since sometimes people miss it.
Fun fact- in one of the recent Bond movies, I think its Sky Fall, Daniel Craig wore a suite that is exactly as this one in color and style. If it looks good on Bond, you’ll look even better!
This isn’t rocket science, do your measurements, and you’re going to get exactly what you pay for.
As far as tie goes, there is only one Amazon product I can’t recommend enough.
Take a look at those and tell me this isn’t enough to experiment for a whole year.
Moving on to watches.
Now, watches can be tricky. There are all sorts of watches and until you put it on your hand and dress up in suit you won’t know if it fits perfectly.
But here is what I wear.
I only have these 3 watches and change them accordingly to what I wear. It fits well, and I’m very satisfied. These watches can be used to whatever style we discuss further.
Here are some shirts that you would like to combine with all this.
When choosing shirts, you need to thing about two things. Size and color.
A shirt’s color is the first thing we notice. It can be determined a hundred feet away and may send a message that the man wearing it is outgoing or that he knows how to fit in. Neither message is better than the other, but a man who understands the role of color and its effect has control over what is being said.
Me? I prefer black/red combination over any other.
When it comes to size, take a look at this.
Now, I do have a complete guide on elevator shoes, but for this type of style I recommend only these:
Semi Casual/Semi business
For a variety of reasons, some men just don’t feel comfortable in a suit. It can be age, that the guy is young (high school) or simply he doesn’t like suits. And that’s perfectly fine.
But the question raises. What to wear instead?
It’s safe to assume that most young men have a couple of pairs of jeans, some T-shirts, and a sweatshirt or two in the wardrobe.
If you don’t have those, you’re either unusually well-dressed or very inventive. The way to go from looking like everyone else to looking sharp and stylish is to take those basic wardrobe pieces and add alternatives to them.
Here are a few basic staples of most young men’s wardrobes, and some alternatives to them that can be worn stylishly but casually:
Everyone owns blue jeans. It’s something you can see every day for sure.
But even the simple swap to more dark, stylish, contrast stitched jeans is a big improvement.
You can also upgrade to colored corduroys, earth-tone cotton slacks, gray wool flannel trousers. Let’s take a look at a few examples.
Replace them with polo shirts, lightweight long-sleeve T-shirts, henley shirts, and other light but distinct styles. Avoid brand names or cheap political t-shirts. Here are some examples:
Swap them for casual plaid flannels, cotton sweaters, lightweight cashmere sweaters, sweater-vests, and cardigans. Let’s take a look.
Swap ‘em for casual leather shoes. Saddle shoes, wingtips, brogues, loafers – there’s a lot of options here. I already wrote a guide on shoes and how to get taller so I won’t repeat myself too much.
Bad Boy Looks
If you have been reading about attraction psychology for a while then probably you already know that bad boys attract women very easily.
Of course, looking “dirty” will definitely give you that vibe even if you’re not acting like one.
Looking tough, dirty or like a bad boy will give you a huge boost when approaching women. It changes how people perceive you and especially women. Mix this with the right frame and you will be unstoppable.
This is the perfect example:
As you can see, the key here is the leather jacket and the belt.
Under your leather jacket, it would be perfect to wear some dress shirt. We already cover it above, so there is no need to go through it again. I will just leave one dress shirt that I think goes very well with black leather jackets.
There is a psychological reason why bad boys choose to wear boots. Boots are very suitable for the lifestyle of a bad boy. The bad boy might ride a bike or do some kind of a dangerous activity every now and then. Because of that, the bad boy needs a kind of shoe that allows them to step into anything whether its water, mud or rocks.
And of course, let’s not forget the belt.
There is one more thing to consider
Summer is coming. Now, I won’t be telling you what kind of shorts to buy. But let me suggest something. Take a look at this picture.
Yes, he is wearing groin protector so his balls look bigger. Smart move.
That being said, maybe, just maybe you can wear these two items:
Take these to the beach, fix your posture and you are set. Girls will look at and drool over your balls like some Kim Jong Il fanatic staring at a statue of the glorious leader
