I'm firing from the hip right now, but here's a few contributions I have:

1. You can get high quality fake tattoos that last for about 2 weeks from InkBox. I have a job that makes it not a good idea for me to have tattoos, so this is a great way for me to get the same benefits.

2. I realized over one year ago that the majority of people in my area wore dark, bland clothing. In an effort to stand out during night game, I started incorporating bolder, brighter colors so that I catch women's eyes, and can be easily spotted by those looking for me. During the summer I try to wear white or bright, bold blue/pink shirts (nothing pastel). For the winter time I have a red leather jacket and a separate white leather jacket that perhaps command too much attention, to the point where I have to tone down the rest of the outfit, lest I look like I'm trying too hard. Also, leather jackets are timeless.

3. It's definitely best to just find the overlap between the Instagram dudes that Andy recommends and your own personal style, and just rip that off. I tried my own fashion for a few years and it was hit and miss, and looking back I should have remembered that women mindlessly scroll through Instagram and are socially conditioned to react to certain styles. Side note: fuck that reddit mensfashionadvice forum, it's for fucking nerds who want to look safe.

4. Your "nightclub" outfit may not be appropriate for daygame. I know that my sexy red leather jacket look is way too unrelatable in the morning at the coffeeshop. I'm still personally developing a good look that commands the attention and sex-worthiness of that look, but is toned down and appropriate for the environment. It would be like a girl wearing a sexy little black dress with glitter to the coffee shop on a weekday morning. Not a look that I would complain about or be against normalizing,

5. If your night game outfit is appropriate for day game, get a new fucking night game outfit.

@Vice

Some interesting points

I dont recommend bold colours (like red) to newbies because im trying to minimise mistakes they could make. And id wager the majority of guys that dont know how to put together an outfit will fuck up bold colours. Equally these colours dont suit certain skin tones at all and again concerned newbies dont spot this

Agree on your disdain for pastels though, for me those sort of shirts scream boring boyfriend material cause of how safe it is.

I prefer guys stick to the stronger neutral colours or try the all-black look out. These are easily mixed and matched which gives a small wardrobe more viable combinations in total

Leather jackets have a big place in my heart and are indeed timeless. However certain styles of leather jacket are more in fashion than others. Recently (last couple years) double riders became the big thing everyone had to have. I think if your jacket style is pretty basic (like a bomber leather jacket) it will always be viable.

I have no experience in stick on tattoos, not something im interested in but if it works go for it. Typically if you stick to above the cuff line and below the neck line with ink you wont have much trouble finding work. In Australia i wore short sleeves in summer and no one cared.

Always a solid option when going clubbing. Although I prefer to add a splash of white for contrast (e.g., white shirt under black leather jacket w/ white+black shoes).

I feel like one point that gets understated (more so for dressing to trends compared to basics) is to pay attention to how other guys dress where you're at - if you're LA fresh in rural Michigan people aren't going to think your fly, more like out of place. Conversely, college frat boy style doesn't look too hot in a fashion capital like Miami.

@RogerRoger Chris had a good way of saying it: 'dress for the scene you are in'

having said that, because i like to play up the travelling foreign guy thing i do basically try and dress like i live in London wherever I am

@joe_ronimo

Off the top of my head

Too many accessories or none at all (id rather guys did too many now tbh)
Too many colours in play
Weird texture combinations (this is minor and maybe only i notice)
Trash shoes - its not hard to have decent shoes but its like lot of guys seem to think they arent important and throw whatever on

Fit is a huge one and its weird we all got this wrong at times cause literally every bit of style advice for men starts with FIT IS EVERYTHING

Some guys hang on to stuff that was in style one year but since then everyone has gone in a completely different direction - dudes still show up on here wearing graphic tees occasionally is a good example. Pretty sure Chris recommended those on one of his style guides cause they were in around 2014

As Andy mentioned dog tags and bandanas randomly show up here and on GLL and thats cause Chris wore those

I think typically what annoys me more is guys not caring about what the wear vs guys trying hard but making errors or being well out of date

I agree; newbies should start with basic looks and then use their experience in the field to ascertain what will help them stand out in a positive way. As you get more experience in the field you'll see what the cool guys (that get girls) wear, and rip that shit off in a way that is congruent with your own style. Also, denim jackets are timeless as well, and stand out in a chill way.

Taking the advice from the fucking nerds on Reddit's Male Fashion Advice forum. It's essentially a circle jerk of dudes cupping each other's balls about how great their boring, safe outfits look, instead of a focus on what catches women's eyes in a positive way. You don't want to look like you work at a fucking credit union or Kia dealership. No woman ever fantasized about that, and what's hilarious is that those fucking nerds jerk off to hot porn stars completely oblivious to this fact.

If scotty was around, is there things he would need to update in his wardrobe?

I get it might be weird to critique someone legendary like scotty, but are there things about what he wore that are no longer viable?

For reference. Just look at what he's wearing in the preview:

a shirt, beanie, and jeans? looks solid too me. This is how 80% of people dress in country clubs in my area (really popular in TX.)

@Radical I can't wear anything on my wrists or around my neck. Can't stand the sensation (weird, I know). I'll occasionally wear a flat brim ball cap or a diamond nose stud (or thin silver ring). Anything else you'd suggest?

@YouBetYourCottonPanties nose stud sounds like it would help, do you also wear ear piercings? Thats enough i think along with some ink and rings if you dont want to wear neck and wrist accessories

You can also put the chain on your belt that some guys have been doing

@Radical
Your opinion on smart watches instead of classic watches as an accesory?
Xiaomi Mi Watch for example:

@Lostcause I am not a watch guy tbh - something weird about my wrist shape doesnt let any sit well

But I dont think that would wreck your look overall though, seems fairly discreet and I know guys who dress better than me who also wear smart watches

@Radical what do you think of this page? https://instagram.com/masculinityfashio ... yiwf2eptzt

Also do you have any recommendations for gym fashion / lounge around the house fashion.

Apparently girls go crazy for grey swear pants.

I think the one place magic_fox does tend to miss is his gym attire, a bit too active wear where as the cool guys are looking like they're working out in a prison.
