Vì sao đôi với các quý ông trang phục luôn quan trọng nhất

Quý ông công sở cũng sở hữu thể diện một vài màu đui tạt quần chẳng hạn như công trình này ở đây nhưng tôi hiểu trường hợp đấy chẳng phải là của quý ông. Ý nghĩ đó trang phục công sở đồ vật ba quay quanh ý nghĩ đó liên hiệp màu xám và nâu. Theo truyền thống, màu đen là màu của thành phố và màu nâu là màu của nước nhà. Hiện nay cả hai đồ vật này hiếm lúc được đoàn kết mang nhau, thậm chí các bộ quần áo tối hơn như một item áo khoác nỉ xám cũng hiếm lúc pha trộn mang màu nâu, tuy nhiên, tôi nghĩ rằng cả nhì màu đó thực sự với thể được cấu kết hơi tốt trường hợp nó được thực hiện 1 chế độ trang nhã. Điều ấy chiếm hữu nghĩa là nếu quý ông công sở chiếm hữu màu xám đậm hơn, hãy tậu màu nâu đậm hơn. Giả sử các chàng trai công sở mang một bộ vest bằng vải nỉ màu xám, hãy cấu kết nó chiếm hữu 1 thành quả cà vạt màu nâu xám và có thể là màu nâu giày lười nam công sở từ Giayhuymanh thay bởi vì đi mang màu nâu sáng, mang thể đi có màu nâu sô cô la. Ví dụ, các chàng trai công sở cũng mang thể đi sở hữu dây đai nhà sư hoặc bất cứ vật dụng gì phái mạnh thích mà hãy mua cả nhị những màu đó mang đến cho trang phục của quý ông công sở lý lẽ ấm áp hơn, đồng thời, nó vẫn hơi đủ long trọng cho tất cả các môi trường văn phòng ko kể đấy. Nhà cửa trang phục thứ tứ quay quanh áo khoác vải tuýt. Cá nhân tôi là 1 fan thương mến bự của áo khoác vải tuýt do chúng vô cùng linh hoạt, chúng sở hữu rất nhiều màu sắc trong vải của chúng, chúng ấm, đồng thời dày hơn và do trong đó, chúng sở hữu khả năng chống nhăn cực kì phải chăng. Thành thật nhưng mà đề cập, quý ông với thể ngồi trên một thắng lợi áo khoác và chỉ trải nghiệm ném nó vào một góc, nhặt lại, đặt nó vào, và nó ko mang nếp nhăn nào cả. Hiện nay những chiếc ví nam của vinamhuymanh.com bạn có thể hãy thử điều ấy sở hữu những bộ quần áo khác của nam giới và bạn sẽ hiểu ý tôi. Vâng, theo truyền thống, vải tuýt được cung ứng cho trang phục đồng quê và quý ông với thể khám phá toàn vẹn về nó, sự đặc biệt và lịch sử trong video hướng dẫn chuyên sâu về vải tuýt của chúng tôi xem tiep. Hiện giờ lúc đề cập tới trang phục chung trong công việc, vải tuýt thực sự ưa thích do nó hâm mộ kiểu áo khoác và buộc nó cùng chiếm hữu quần ống rộng. 1 Màu vải tuýt thực sự hoàn hảo cho văn phòng là màu xám. Tôi khuyên phái mạnh nên sử dụng các sản phẩm giày nam đẹp của giaynamhuymanh.com phải đi với màu đen hoặc nâu vì nó vẫn được coi là đủ trọng thể và quý ông công sở sở hữu thể lựa mua giày cho mình giữa bình thường phong cách khác nhau. Đồng thời, tôi với thể mặc nó chiếm hữu 1 nhà cửa quần jean denim, tôi sở hữu thể mặc nó sở hữu áo khoác nhung, thì tôi cũng mang thể mặc nó chiếm hữu quần chinos, không vấn đề gì! Mặt khác, hãy nhìn vào thành quả áo khoác vải tuýt này chiếm hữu kiểu dệt vải chéo thô và các túi vá, nó tầm thường hơn bạn hữu so chiếm hữu một chiếc áo khoác vest màu xám nhưng nó vẫn sở hữu cùng bảng màu và do đó khiến cho việc tại văn phòng. Về vật phẩm thắt lưng da nam đẹp từ thatlunghuymanh.com, tôi khuyên quý ông công sở phải đi với nhiều họa tiết hơn như cà vạt đan hoặc có thể cà vạt shantung hoặc cà vạt grenadine bởi nó chỉ đoàn kết phải chăng và cân bằng thành tích nhìn tổng thể. Kèm theo, lúc nói đến giày, tôi kể đến quý ông về những đôi giày công sở yếu tố của chúng tôi chỉ dẫn, đồng thời, màu nâu là các chàng trai công sở của các chàng trai công sở. Bất cứ bóng nào của màu nâu, cho dù nó mang đậm hơn hoặc với thể là 1 số màu nâu đỏ hoặc nâu tiến thưởng hoặc đỏ tía, tổng thể sẽ hoạt động có vải tuýt và nó sẽ luôn trông đẹp. Ý nghĩ đó trang phục trang bị năm đoàn kết với áo len hoặc áo len cổ lọ. Theo truyền thống, áo vest là 1 phần của bộ vest nhưng trong môi trường giản dị hơn, áo ba lỗ bộ đồ ko phải là 1 lựa tìm. Tuy nhiên, lúc trời lạnh ngắt hơn vào mùa đông, phái mạnh mang thể mặc 1 công trình áo vest tương phản bên dưới áo khoác của phái mạnh và chiếm hữu thể trông hơi bảnh bao. Cá nhân tôi, tôi thích thắng lợi áo vest màu đỏ tía của mình mà tôi cũng mặc màu xanh lá cây áo vest nhung và gần như những dòng màu sắc khác bao gồm cả vải tuýt xanh cho văn phòng. Tôi nghĩ rằng một thành quả áo vest vải tuýt màu xanh thực sự rất thuận tiện. Cá nhân tôi, tôi sẽ ko mặc 1 thành tựu áo vest được xây dựng riêng mà ko sở hữu áo khoác, tôi sẽ luôn đi cùng áo khoác, tuy nhiên, một số người vẫn ổn sở hữu nó, đặc biệt trường hợp đó là áo vest hoặc áo khoác len áo nịt. Đa số những cardigans phái mạnh thấy đều mang màu tương đồng chiếm hữu màu xanh nước hồ được yêu thích.

Đôi lúc, quý ông công sở cũng chiếm hữu thể thấy màu trắng nhạt với thể tương đối nhiều và không thương yêu trong thời điểm vào Đông. Cá nhân mình cũng cực kì thích màu xanh lá cây do nó là màu ấm áp, thuộc tính thổ và nó hoàn toàn trái ngược mang màu mua sắm truyền thống là xám, xanh lam, và than củi. Nếu nam giới muốn tiến thêm một bước nữa, quý ông cũng sở hữu thể mang những vật phẩm áo vest sở hữu hoa văn hoặc họa tiết những công trình áo len như họa tiết houndstooth, sở hữu thể cực kì truyền thống, mang thể là Hoàng tử của Wales chẳng hạn, hoặc nó chiếm hữu thể là một vật phẩm gì đấy mang dấu chấm trên đấy. Trong khi, phái mạnh cũng có thể tậu thấy những thành tích áo len họa tiết có tác phẩm đan dây cáp hoặc những yếu tố khác. Cá nhân tôi, trường hợp tôi muốn đến 1 môi trường văn phòng tầm thường hơn và tôi muốn một thành phầm gì đấy đó là tầm thường marketing, tôi sẽ ko ngần ngại mặc 1 loại gì đấy sở hữu thể dọc theo tác phẩm 1 chiếc áo len quần vợt dĩ nhiên là tương đối cũ kỹ nhưng ấy chỉ thuận tiện là phong cách tôi thích. Cá nhân tôi thực sự thích thắt cà vạt mang áo sơ mi lúc mặc áo len tới văn phòng. Tôi thường thích hài hòa nó sở hữu một công trình cà vạt, chiếm hữu nghĩa là tôi mang một vật phẩm áo len cổ chữ V khoét sâu bởi theo hình thức đó,cà vạt của tôi và nút thắt cà vạt của tôi thực sự bật ra và trông đẹp hơn bình thường so sở hữu thắt nơ điều ấy thực sự chỉ che đậy đồng đội cà vạt. Về áo sơ mi, đôi khi tôi thích đi có các phụ kiện áo sơ mi kẻ caro bé mang cổ áo cài cúc. Mặc dù nếu áo len cực kì lớn, các chàng trai công sở cũng sở hữu thể đi chiếm hữu 1 thành phầm áo sơ mi kín tiếng hơn. Chỉ hưởng thụ hạn chế các màu trắng trơn thuận lợi bởi vì mang quá thông thường tính mua sắm và chúng ko hợp sở hữu sự giản dị của áo len. Sau cùng nhưng mà ko kém phần nhu yếu, hãy nói về 1 ý tưởng bửa sung về phụ kiện áo sơ mi trắng hoặc xanh lá cây. Bây chừ đồng chí mọi người mặc áo sơ mi trắng hoặc xanh nhạt tới văn phòng, tôi là một người ủng hộ bự của cái áo sơ mi trắng hoặc kem do nhìn từ xa nó mềm hơn tầm thường, trông nó vẫn bè cánh giống như áo sơ mi trắng nhưng nó hòa hợp những tông màu ấm hơn như nâu hoặc xanh lá cây với nhau rẻ hơn thông thường hơn 1 chiếc áo sơ mi trắng trơn. Vào cuối ngày, phái mạnh chiếm hữu thể tranh luận rằng áo sơ mi màu kem là áo sơ mi trắng rẻ hơn do nó linh hoạt hơn bè bạn. Nó với thể được mặc chiếm hữu một bộ vest công sở mà nó cũng với thể được mặc có các cái áo khoác bình thường hơn bọn bao gồm những thứ như áo khoác Harrington hoặc áo khoác vải lanh. Trong trang phục hôm nay, tôi đã tiêu phí một thành phầm áo sơ mi màu kem làm cho nền, đấy là 1 dòng áo sơ mi cực kì phổ biến được khiến từ vải áo sơ mi polo cực kì co giãn cực kỳ công bình lúc mặc tôi liên kết chiếm hữu 1 loại áo blazer trang trọng hơn mang nhì bên ngực và 1 phần của bộ vest mà nó mang ô cửa sổ trên ấy và nó ko phải là bóng tối nhất của Hải quân, ấy là lý do tại sao nó hoạt động hơi thấp cho quần . Tôi đã mua 1 đôi slip on chiếm hữu lần lượt từ giayhuymanh.com và tôi đã đi mang một đôi của đôi giày da cao cấp .Tôi muốn tìm tông màu đỏ cho đôi giày của mình trong phần còn lại của trang phục và vì vậy tôi đã mua một công trình túi vuông bằng vải lanh thủ công ở Burgundy mang màu trắng là một mùa hè vô cùng thoáng mát và thực sự là khá cứng mà nó phân phối một nếp gấp thực sự đẹp trong túi của tôi mà không quá to bởi chúng tôi kích thước nó chính xác

Travel Advice – Clothing For A Man Traveling From Tropical to Cold Weather Country – Menswear Tips

Travel Advice – Clothing For A Man TravelingFrom Tropical to Cold Weather Country – Menswear Tips Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, I'm going to be giving tips to a manliving in a tropical environment and he's going to some place a lot more cooler.

If you haven't already, please subscribe tothis YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this, if you findit useful, I would appreciate it if you would like it down below.

And last but not least, if you haven't grabbedmy 47-page e-book, what are you waiting for? This actually comes from my friend.

Kevin.

I know him on Twitter and he's over in thePhilippines.

“Antonio, I'm going to be flying to Seoul, Korea in November and I need some advice on what to wear in the fall where temps can goas low as 6° C.

” That's 43° F for those of us over here in the United States.

“I know some basics based on what I've readfrom magazines like a navy pea coat, but I don't want anything too large or too long.

Now, how can I dress because I don't wantto spend a whole lot of money and I want something that I'll be able to get my money's worthout of?” This is a great question and I understandwhere Kevin's coming from.

He lives in the Philippines and it's a tropicalenvironment.

If you've ever been to the Philippines orSoutheast Asia, it's hot.

I mean, the Northern Australians can tellyou.

I've been to Darwin.

I've been to some of these places like Djibouti– well, that's over in Africa, but in any case, it is hot and humid and there is nowinter clothing in these places.

And so, this is a man who most of his lifehas been used to this type of weather and he's going to be going to some place — Imean, we're talking like a good 40° temperature drop.

And so, how should he dress? How should he even get the clothing togetherto dress for a trip like this, and do this without spending a whole lot of money? Well, the great part is he's going to SouthKorea, and South Korea is one of the better shopping destinations.

So my first bet is don't worry so much aboutthis because if you don't have something you need, you can pick it up in South Korea.

Now, that's not going to help him much becausehe does want to get off that plane and he doesn’t want to be freezing his backsideoff, so the first thing I'm going to say to remember is that you want to cover all ofthe parts of your body except for your face, and that’s going to have a huge difference.

Oftentimes, we think that we can put on abig, heavy jacket, not worry about anything around the neck, anything on the head, nothingon our hands, and we are losing a lot of heat from those parts of the body.

We'll wear a very thin pair of jeans or onepair of trousers with nothing underneath and we think that we're not going to lose as muchheat, and there is a lot of logic in that you need to keep your core warm, so I'm goingto advise you that one thing you can do is wear two undershirts especially if you'refinding a performance undershirt or one that's even made from wool that's going to help keepyou warm and a sweater vest.

Those are all great things to keep your corewarm, but don't forget about your extremities.

So keep all parts of your body not exposedto the air.

I talked about it in one of my cold weatherdressing videos, but I've done some research at one of the army labs here in the UnitedStates and they did show that you're going to lose as much heat from around your neck, from around your hands as you would on almost any other part of your body, including yourhead.

There's this wise tale out there that — howdoes it go? You lose like 70% to 90% of the heat fromyour head.

That’s not exactly true.

I talk about the whole logic behind that inanother video, which I'll probably just link to down below.

But for Kevin, he's going to want to makesure he gets off that plane with a good fitted pair of gloves, with a nice scarf, and witha good hat.

Now, when it comes to jacket, he's talkingabout a pea coat.

That may be almost a little bit too much.

For 43°, at least here in the United States, we're still over 10° above freezing, so a driving jacket would probably be just fine.

What I'm going to say is instead look to layerand wear thermals underneath.

So underneath your trousers, make sure tohave a pair of thermal underwear.

In addition, pay attention to the makeup ofthe clothing that you'll be wearing.

Wear a lot of wool.

Wool does a great job of keeping you coolin hot weather and keeping you warm in cold weather.

Don't go for cotton.

It does wick away some moisture especiallyif it's woven in a gauze weave.

It's great for a shirt, but not in the winter.

You're just going to lose that heat immediately, so pay attention also to your gloves and to your scarf.

Don't go with anything cotton.

You should be able to find a wool cashmereblend in the scarf and that's going to help a lot.

I talked about sweater vest.

Boots, make sure to go with a pair of nicedress boots and that extra bit of covering is going to keep your ankles and part of yourlegs warm, and that's an area that a lot of men forget about.

Did I miss anything? I think that covers about it.

I would recommend a trench coat possibly, but it sounded like you didn’t want to go with a jacket that was really long, but Ithink a trench coat is really nice because even though it is long, what that does isit helps cover and protect that lower part of the body from the wind hitting you.

And so, it should be something you consider.

I think they're very elegant.

It's very classic.

And if you're going to invest in a good trench, that's something that you'll be able to use there in the Philippines as well especiallyif it's an unlined trench.

All right, guys, I hope that helped out.

Kevin, good luck on your trip and I will seeyou guys in the next video.

Bye-bye.

Should An Undershirt Show Beneath A Dress Shirt – Men's Under Shirts – Fashion & Style Tips

Should An Undershirt Show Beneath A DressShirt – Men's Under Shirts – Fashion & Style Tips Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, we're going to be talking about undershirtsand should an undershirt ever peek out from under a dress shirt.

If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this, if you findit useful, I would appreciate it if you would like it down below.

While you're down there, grab our free 47-pagee-book on men's style and if you would like to add something, if you feel you've got acomment to add, I know this is a very controversial subject, go ahead and add to the comments.

Okay.

This is the question that came in.

“Dear Antonio, I would like to first say Ilove your videos, very informative and you're my inspiration to dress sharp.

” Well, thank you, sir.

“When it comes to dress shirts and the singlebutton, the very top one I'm speaking of is undone, should an undershirt ever show? Does it look bad if it shows? Thanks.

Chris.

” Okay, Chris, good question and something wesee all the time especially in the corporate world where you have tons of men wearing theseblue dress shirts and then you see this white undershirt that's just hugging the bottomof their neck.

The question is what are the rules on thisand is that acceptable? Now, there are two camps here, and you cango check out The Undershirt Guy.

Tug, he runs this website and they've debatedthis quite a bit, and there isn't a true answer because it really depends on you and yoursituation, and I'm going to explain why.

So for the camp that says “no”, and I kindof fall in that camp, unless you fit a certain description, which I'll talk about later, for most men, I look at it as you're really showing your underwear.

Most of us don't like it whenever you seesomebody and they're wearing their pants low and you can see that the whole — basically, you can see their ass.

That's not what we're looking for when itcomes to men's style.

I know that is a particular type of stylein certain areas, but I don't like to see men's underwear.

The same is for the top and we've kind ofgotten away from that.

A lot of people don't really even view undershirtsas underwear.

They're wearing them as outerwear, but forthese intents and purposes, you are wearing it as underwear because it's under your dressshirt, so why would you want to show it? That's probably the first thing that I reallydon't like.

The other one is there's the contrast.

Now, you want contrast on the necktie becauseit's beautiful and you want to draw attention to the silk going around your neck.

Perhaps you want to have a dress shirt that'sgot a bit of a contrast on the inside of the collar, but why would you want to draw attentionespecially with a blue shirt or something of another color to the white contrast rightbelow your Adam's apple? I don't know why you would want to have contrastright there, again, pointing out something that is your underwear.

Finally, I think that wearing a V-neck undershirtwhenever you are leaving the button undone, which is what I do.

I've got an undershirt on made by a companycalled RibbedTee, great company, by the way.

I've done a review on them, but in any case, I wear their V-neck undershirts because I love not having to button this top buttonon my shirts as you can tell, and you cannot tell that I'm wearing an undershirt, but Ican tell because when I take off my clothing, I realize that my dress shirt is not goingto be soiled in the armpits or anything even though I've been doing these videos for awhile this morning and I've been sweating.

I'm not going to have to worry about launderingthis dress shirt as much.

Instead, I'll just launder this less expensiveundershirt.

Okay, so those are the reasons I'm in the”no” camp, but the “yes” camp has got some good reasons and I would say if you've gota lot of chest hair, then this makes sense because if I had a huge mat right here andif I had hair popping out, no matter what I'm saying, I bet there would be somebodyout there on YouTube that's just focusing on all this chest hair coming right out andthey're not going to be thinking, “Wow! That's incredible.

” Well, maybe they will be thinking that's incrediblymanly, but they're going to be thinking, “Man, that guy is Tom Selleck reincarnated, ” orsomething.

It's something that's distracting.

And so, you don't want a distracting patchof hair coming out from under there, and I know a lot of guys who've got that.

They try to trim it a bit, but they also realizethat throwing on an undershirt helps keep that under control and it shows that theytry to take steps to manage that.

And then there are also men who have tattoosor scars or birthmarks which they just don't want people — they would rather draw attentionto that little bit of the undershirt than have people notice that they've got maybea tattoo that they picked up when they were 20 years old or that they've got a birthmarkthat they just don't want people seeing, or a mole or something.

In that case, it makes perfect sense.

Now, if you really don't care, I would saythat when it comes to the totem pole of men's style, this is pretty far down there so it'snot super important.

But it is something, if you're looking toup your game or you're in a corporate environment, I would try switching to the V-neck undershirt.

I think it's a great compromise.

You're not going to lose protection.

I'm not a big fan of the sleeveless, the onesthat they call wife beaters.

I don't like that term.

In any case, I don't think they offer theright type of protection either.

So that's my answer.

I hope you like it.

I'd like to hear from you guys in the commentsand I will see you in the next video.

Bye-bye.

Pick Stitching – A Sign Of Quality Men's Suits? Mens Clothing Build – Suit Fabric – Fashion Advice

Pick Stitching – A Sign Of Quality Men's Suits_Mens Clothing Build – Suit Fabric – Fashion Advice Hi.

I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today I'm going to be talking about suit details.

And can you tell quality by the little bitof stitching on the lapels and near the button holes? And this was a question asked of me.

And so if you havenít already, make sureto subscribe our YouTube channel.

The link is right ñ actually, you can justclick on subscribe right up there.

And that way, these videos will be deliveredright to your inbox.

In addition, if you enjoy this video, I wouldappreciate it.

If you would like it, like the button rightbelow.

And finally, if you want to read more, ifyou want to learn more about menís style, thereís a link to an article right belowhere.

So go ahead and click on that article.

Iíll always try to send you to a very usefulpiece of content which will help further explain what I talk about here in the videos.

The question I received.

I read most of the seven deadly style sins.

Thatís my free eBook, by the way.

Itís been very helpful.

The only questions I still have at this timeare, is stitching around the edges of the lapel a sign of visual quality when it comesto a jacket? Whether itís cheap or expensive or this isjust a preference.

Number two, is stitching that appears aroundthe buttons of the jacket cuffs that makes it look like thereís actual button holesfor all four buttons a sign of a quality jacket.

Okay.

So, what the gentleman asks specifically, no, those are not signs of a quality jacket.

They are also not signs of a bad quality jacket.

Theyíre just small signs.

And itís kind of like whenever youíre lookingat quality clothing, thereís not one factor that it is normally going to determine ifitís a going a good quality jacket.

There are actually many factors.

And if it violates one of those factors, itcould immediately be discounted as a poor quality.

I mean, if a jacket is made from a hundredpercent polyester, then most of the time Iím going to discount that as a low quality jacket.

However, perhaps youíre going for a performancejacket.

Iíve seen one out there which is designedspecifically to be right in dawn and to behave and crumple it up and ñ for it to pop rightback.

So, in that case, I guess it is a qualityjacket because thatís what the people looking to put this together were going for.

But in most cases, the little things likethose ñ heís talking about the pick stitching right here on the jacket lapels.

And heís also talking about some of the coloring, the stitching around the button holes.

And I donít know if you can see this.

Weíll try to zoom in.

But I actually have got my jacket, so itísgot working button holes.

Now, working button holes are normally a signof quality because it means that the jacket sleeve length can just barely be adjusted.

It can be adjusted but not much.

And so, it normally signals that this jacketsleeve was made for the man.

It was actually made to his size.

It wasnít bought off the rack and then adjustit.

And usually, if you buy a jacket off the rack, you can just adjust the sleeves up to two inches sometimes.

But with this jacket, the most you would beable to adjust that, I would say, maybe half an inch, anything more than three inches isgoing to lose some of the proportions and not look right.

So in that case, working button holes areoften a sign of quality, but theyíre not a determining factor because you can get something.

And quality, again, is very subjective.

You can have somebody on the side of the rowwho makes handmade suits that range in the $4, 000 range.

And he will say a made-to-measure suit thatperhaps only cost, you know, $400 to $500.

Thatís not only a sign of quality.

It is one sign though.

The other signs are going to be, you know, the fit of the jacket.

Does it actually fit to wear? Is it designed for his body type? And again, this is, you know, if the jacketis made for the person.

Another thing is going to be the fabric.

What is the quality of the fabric? And this is something thatís hard for a lotof men to be able to determine.

You can tell a really bad fabric from a goodfabric.

But to be able to tell a good fabric froma great fabric, that requires a trained eye, and oftentimes, youíre going to have to sendit to a lab.

Well, they will actually do a chemical andburn test to determine the percentage makeup of wool versus polyester versus other blendsthat they can put in there.

But ñ so when it comes to fabric, you normallywant to go for at least something is going to be in the super 100s.

I think thatís a good quality fabric.

Although, you know, super 120, super 130, super 140s, these super numbers to even make it more confusing, there isnít a set system.

So, every company, one company super 120, can equal another company super 130.

Yeah.

They just ñ it doesnít mesh exactly.

The other thing is going to be built.

And this is ñ so if I look at a jacket, Iílllook at the shoulders, maybe ñ I donít really do this ñ well, if Iím looking somethingat the store.

But if I have the jacket and I have permission, I can cut it open and I can look at the inside of the jacket and I can look at where itíshand-sewn, if itís got a floating canvas, if it has a half canvas, if it has a lot ofmachine work, has it been fused on the inside.

So there are all these things that I can lookat as a professional to determine the high level of the quality of the jacket.

But most people are not going to be able todo this.

So how are you going to be able to determineif this is a quality jacket? One, look at whoís selling you the jacket.

So, you want to trust the person that youírebuying from.

And thatís the great thing about most boxstores, is it for them, itís not worth ripping you off and selling you something low, youknow.

Well, they ñ youíre often going to get whatyou pay for, but realize that, okay, if you go to Nordstrom, you go to Neiman Marcus.

Youíre going to get a different level ofquality than if you shop for a suit or a jacket at Sears.

Just ñ they buy from different people, wholedifferent world.

And so, in that case, youíre spending moremoney, youíre getting higher quality.

But if you go to a menís wear store, a specificone, you know, the Menís Wearhouse, JoS A.

Banks, those are entry level.

There are usually most medium-sized towns.

They have actually a specialty men store andmaybe itís owned by a local merchant.

Those are where youíre going to find evenbetter quality.

And often, I think get a better deal.

The best deal that you can find in my opinionis travelling to either London, Milan, Hong Kong or Bangkok.

And finding a great tailor that you can workwith, who can build you something from scratch.

Now, Bangkok, Hong Kong, youíre going tohave to be much more careful.

But London, Milan, youíre going to have alot more ñ youíre going to have a lot more play.

You know, you can trust many of the guys thereversus in Bangkok and Hong Kong.

Youíve got to be careful.

They will just ñ they will cheap the shirtright off your back.

But ñ okay.

So, to answer the question again, these littledetails are not determining factors of quality.

Quality is much ñ thereís much more to it.

And so, I wish I could give you a, you know, give you an easy answer on that, but thatís the best I can do.

Take care.

A Sharp Dressed Man – Why men should care about personal appearance – fashion style advice

A Sharp Dressed Man – Why men should careabout personal appearance – fashion style advice Hi.

Iím Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

And today I'm going to be talking about theimportance of being a sharp dressed man.

This video is in support of an article thatI wrote about being, you know, sharp dressed.

And so Iím just going to go point by point.

And if youíre interested in, you know, watchingmore videos on menís style, make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel, right abovehere.

And if you want to follow, go check out thearticle in which Iím going through a lot more detail.

You can follow the link right below here.

In addition, you can contact us and you know, talk to us over at our Facebook page, on Twitter and visit our website, realmenrealstyle.

comwhere we have a lot of great information.

Okay.

So let me go ahead and jump right into this.

Why is it important to pay attention to yourappearance? Why be a sharp dressed man? Well, especially when you look around, I actuallyjust read an email today of — a guy emailed me and he is like, ìHey, everyone in my collegeclass, none of them dressed sharp.

I am an older student though so my big concernabout is should I be dressing a bit nicer or should I dress down to the way everyoneelse is dressed?î And this got me thinking, you know.

Dressing sharp, it doesnít matter how oldyou are.

It doesnít really matter what situation youírein.

I think taking pride in your appearance isimportant, whether you are a blue-collar worker, youíre a white-collar worker, youíre a student, youíre a 75-year-old retiree.

In any case, I want to make a split-seconddecision about you, whenever I first meet you, before I talk.

Because if you think about it, most peoplewe see on a daily basis, we donít talk to.

We pass by them but we still make judgmentsabout them.

Because if you see a guy and he looks likehe is, you know, he is waving his arms around, heís dressed like a homeless person, andhe just gives the physical sign that, you know, he looks like a homeless or a drunkperson or someone thatís on drugs, youíre going to get out of the personís way.

And unless you a death wish or something.

But you know, most of the time, we look atsomebody, we make snap decisions.

We have ideas in our mind of what a bank presidentlooks like or what a skater looks like or what a professional athlete looks like.

And if we ever meet somebody and they kindof go against that grain, itís a bit surprising.

And you know, we are oftentimes a little bit, you know, hesitant to believe that this person whoís dressed like this could really be this.

Because we have this preset notions of whatsomeone in a certain, you know, type of, you know, area of society looks like.

So why handicap yourself? Why put yourself in a position of having towork your way up? Why not start at the top, dress sharp andthen you know, people, you know, ìOh, youíre a student but you dress like a professional.

I would have thought you worked here in theMarketing Department.

You looked just so sharp.

î You know, thatísmuch better than for someone who say, ìHey, can you point me to someone who works here? Oh, youíre the president.

î I guess if youívereached a certain area in success you can do that.

But for most of us, we need to pay attentionto our appearance.

So my article was broken up into two parts- how dressing sharp affects you and how dressing sharp affects others.

So let me talk about the three ways that dressingsharp affects you.

So whenever you dress sharp, thereís a bitof a transformation effect.

And this can best be illustrated by a quickstory.

So the FBI did a study and they took two differentgroups of agents.

They put them in two separate rooms.

They gave them the same problem.

And both groups came up with entirely differentscenarios of how they would rescue the hostage, that was the actual problem.

And the only thing that changed, and thiswas done doing number of random samples, was the way that they dress them.

One, they were dressed in suits and they chooseto negotiate.

The other group, they dressed in combat gear.

And guess what they decided to do? To rush and to go in and to forcibly, youknow, free the, you know, the hostages.

So you think about how — what you wear oftentimesdictates how youíre going to behave.

I mean if Iím dressed sharp, Iím gong tobehave a certain way.

If Iím dressed to, like you know, like Iímgoing to go in and I want to be a demolition guy destroying a building, Iíve got anothertype of attitude.

When I put on my steel-toe boots versus my, you know, my dress shoes that are made from really delicate leather.

And itís not saying that you know — basicallyIím just getting across the point.

There is a transformation effect.

So if youíre not feeling good, — the womenknow this, they actually donít dress sharp whenever theyíre not feeling great, becausethey know that dressing better, dressing you know, to a higher degree oftentimes kind offorces them to feel a little bit better.

Now, self-discipline.

This is something where, if youíre goingto dress sharp, you need to have the discipline to make sure that your wardrobe is going towork.

Itís pretty easy to dress bad.

I mean, you donít have to pay any attentionat anything and just throw any clothing on your body.

But if youíre going to dress sharp, Öyou have to plan ahead.

The night before you need to make sure yourshirts are ironed, that your suits are pressed or that you know, if youíre simply goingto wear a clothing, that it fits you.

And Iím talking more for, you know, in acasual realm, polo shirts, shorts, sandals.

If youíre going to be wearing those, youknow, you can wear that and you can look sharp or you can wear that and you can look bad.

Usually the difference is, the guy that looksharp, heís wearing very similar clothing but heís making sure that it fits him, thatitís clean, that itís free from stains.

Little things like that make a huge difference.

And thatís self-discipline.

The other thing is appreciation and respect.

So if you dress sharp, youíre going to payattention to how other people are dressing sharp and youíre going to appreciate thatbecause you know how much work it is and how much you have to pay attention to detail inorder to get that type of appearance.

Youíre probably going to, you know, lookat perhaps your wife or your girlfriend, and youíre going to realize that, ìWow.

She does put quite a bit into how she dresses.

î And Iím not saying that you know, dressingsharp, Because if you look at, you know, some of the top militaries in the world, look theBritish Special Forces, United States Special Forces, you meet with the professional soldier, what does he pay attention to? His uniform, his gear because he realizesa lot depends on that.

And itís a simple reflection of who he isand pride in how he dresses.

So how does your appearance affect others? Well, there is a lot to be said about thepower of visuals.

Simply look at, you know, if youíre in ared sports car, what do we all know about red sports cars? Theyíre more likely to get pulled over.

Simply because they are more likely be caughtdriving fast, people take notice of the red sports care versus a blue Corvette or a blackCorvette or a white Corvette.

So red is a color that weíre drawn to.

I mean if a woman walks into a room and sheíswearing — or a man walks in room, I donít want to appear statutory thing — but Iímgoing to use a woman example.

She walks in a red dress into a bar.

What do we all look at? Boom! We are attach to her.

Now, if she comes in dressed in colors whichdo not just draws to them, then that makes sense.

I mean, think about weíre like bees, weírelike animals.

A bee is drawn to a flower because of ñ Iímsure there is botanist here or some etymologist that study with bugs, theyíre going disagreebut my understanding is itís something to do with the color spectrum of the flowers, and the shape, and all of that which draws the insect to it.

And weíre the same way.

And believe it or not other men, if you cangive yourself a very masculine, healthy look, other men want to work with you.

They want to learn from you.

They want to be around you.

And thatís not a bad thing in business.

Itís not a bad thing at all because we donítwant to be around sickly people or people that in a sense, give off a feeling of ñan isolation type of feel.

We want to be around people who attract us, who naturally weíre drawn to and make us feel good, whether youíre a man or a woman.

All right.

First impressions.

Very important, you want to set the best onfirst impression.

Because first impressions are formed beforeyou open your mouth.

People look at you and they make a quick snapjudgment.

And whether that be a high one or a low one, youíre set there.

And itís almost like cement.

And it takes a lot of effort and force tomove it up or to move it down.

So why not start up? All right.

The power of color, Iíve already talked aboutpatterns.

Now, patterns can have the effect of actuallymaking a short man look taller or a wide man, you know, look a little bit thinner.

Patterns you know, you go with a solid monochromaticlook, itís going to allow the eyes to go up and down.

Itís going to give you a taller, slimmerlook.

Thatís something you want.

All right.

Influence and authority.

So I was kind of hinting at this.

But we have an idea in our mind of what amanager, what a business owner, what a successful person looks like.

Whatever that picture maybe in your mind, think about, you know, mixing your individual style and go for it.

I mean, yes there are exceptions to the rule, yes Tony Hawk doesnít dress like a multi-millionaire and the CEO of an amazing brand.

But that is a unique case.

But every ñ even the guys ñ but Tony Hawk, he still ñ he still brands himself.

He still pays attention.

He still wears the kind of clothing that representsthe lifestyle that he represents.

That is style.

Whatever your walk in life, pay attentionto it and, you know, make sure that you are crafting that and you are having the influencewith your clothing that you want before you even open your mouth.

And the last thing, you know, positive assumptions.

And this is tied closer to everything I talkabout, you know.

You want people to have aÖ Öpositive first impression.

Because once they cement that positive firstimpression, youíre given a lot of leeway, you can do and have a lot of mistakes, youknow.

The opposite is that you create a negativefirst impression.

And then whenever you can ñ if you screwup or you have a small mistake, people say, ìOh, well.

That just reinforces what I initially thought.

îAnd thatís not what you want.

So the importance of being a sharp dressedman is that your appearances are incredibly important, more important in a first meetingthan what you say.

Because so many times you donít get a chanceto say anything or people are, you know, theyíre just paying attention to all these other visualsand really paying attention to how you dress.

Itís a small thing that you can do.

You can control that.

You canít control, you know, peopleís stereotypes.

You canít control peopleís backgrounds andwhat theyíre going to think, except you can control what they think about, you know, youbased off with how you dress.

They at least, you know, will respect that.

Men's Clothing And Influence – How A Man's Clothes Affects Others – Male Style Advice

Men's Clothing And Influence – How A Man'sClothes Affects Others – Male Style Advice Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, I'm going to be talking about clothingand influence.

If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this, if you findit useful, I would appreciate it if you would click on the “like” button right down there.

And last but not least, I'm going to linkyou to some useful articles where you can go and learn more about clothing and influence, and you'll also see we've got a great 47-page e-book.

Grab it.

It's great.

It's free.

It's awesome.

Okay, this is the question that came in, “Hi, Antonio! I'm a youth minister and I've noticed thatwhen I wear certain clothing, the young people are more receptive and they pay more attentionto me.

Can you give me some advice on what to wearto keep the young people's attention, but also keep the formal look in church so tospeak? Thank you in advance.

” All right, so I decided I'm going to makethis one a little bit more general and broad because I think the bigger question here isclothing and the influence it has.

I saw this firsthand in the Marine Corps becauseany guy out there that's been a young officer, he realizes that when you take off your uniformand you take off your bars as a young lieutenant, you're 22 years old and you often find yourselfon base with predominantly — especially in the Marine Corps — over 90% are enlisted.

And when you don't have those signifiers, when there isn't that clothing to separate you from the pack, you'll find it's a veryinteresting world because a lot of people will group you in the group of the enlisted.

I have all the respect in the world for theenlisted men, but young, enlisted men, they know they can fall prey to, let's just say, a hard-charging gunnery sergeant or first sergeant who sees you any place or anywherethat he deems is off limits, and I could think of so many stories in which would be.

Let's say, checking out a building or walkingperhaps in an area that was off limits to most.

I would have some hard charger come up andsay, “Hey, what are you doing over there?” They would normally not speak to an officerthat way, but it was one of those things that I wasn't breaking any rule.

I was apparently breaking his rule or maybewhere he told parts of his unit not to — I wasn't in a fire zone or anything, but let'sjust say in any case, it was always kind of humorous.

I thought in my head to just introduce myselfand say, “I didn’t realize that this was perhaps a sidewalk, ” which was his sidewalk.

The stories usually are pretty funny and Ican't remember an exact one, but anybody in the military knows about these little idiosyncrasiesthat happen, but it was all because there wasn't that clothing there that had the influence, which clearly put us in different tracks in terms of what our position was in the military.

As a youth minister or whether you're in anyposition in which you're working with people and there's kind of like a hierarchy in thesystem, whether you're a professor, you're a teacher, you're a sponsor or a chaperonat an event, I think it's important when you're in a position of authority that you dressfor that position of authority.

And I don't know specifically what your dresscode is going to be.

I mean, there is a huge difference.

If you go to a synagogue in New York Cityor if you're going to a small church in rural Wisconsin, there's a bit difference in howpeople are going to dress, but across the board, you need to make sure you're clean.

You need to make sure your clothing fits you, and you need to make sure it's appropriate for the environment.

So as long as you keep those good, you'regoing to be good to go, but I'm going to get a little bit more general or specific, dependingon how you look at it, but I really want to address the fact that you are a leader, whetheryou're a chaperon or whether you are a youth minister, whether you are the head or you'rein front of a classroom of 500 people.

You're at this point a positional leader andI think it's important that people are able to easily distinguish that you are a leader.

Usually, it's simply throwing on a jacket.

That is a universal sign that this is somebodythat either is forced to wear one or is in charge.

I like to think that we're a little bit incharge when we're wearing something that is regal, has a military background, and makesmen look better.

If it fits properly, it'll make you look better.

The other one is I understand this youth minister'sissue.

He's wanting to, I think, be able to havepeople relate with him better and perhaps be more open, but it's kind of like the father-sonrelationship in that you do want to be — you want to have a very open relationship withyour son, but you don't want to be; you're not his buddy.

You are his father and he only has one inthe entire world.

And for these people that are going to yourchurch, these young men and young women, you are the youth minister and you're perhapsprobably their only youth minister at this point.

So I think you need to identify what it isthat — again, I'm not saying it's a suit and tie and I'm not saying it's shorts anda t-shirt, but it's probably somewhere between there.

And you need to find where that falls andgo ahead and fill that role because they're expecting it.

The other one is it also matters how thisappears on the outside and the reason being is for whenever somebody new joins the groupor somebody who's observing or wanting to learn, they're going to look out there andthey're going to say — can they identify the person in charge? If you walk up to a group of men and fiveof them are just wearing dress shirts and slacks and one of them is in a suit, who areyou going to assume is in charge, assuming they're all the same age, same size, there'snothing else that distinguishes them? You're going to assume the guy in the suit.

There's a reason people say, “Oh, the suitsare here, ” or, “The guys in charge are here.

” It's just something that sets itself apart.

Again, I'm not saying you have to go downthe suit path, but find the equivalent in your area.

The last thing I'm going to say is experiment.

Look and find what works.

Perhaps there is some type of color that justlooks great on you or that makes them open up.

Find it, make it work.

If it's a certain type of novelty tie, whichallows you to take something that's a bit dressier, but bring it down.

In this case, who am I to say you can't weara novelty tie if it helps somebody in that group open up and for you to have a deeperconnection? All right.

This has been Antonio Centeno with Real MenReal Style.

I'll see you in the next video.

Bye-bye.

Odd Jackets – Sport Coats – Blazers – Men's Suit Jacket – Menswear Clothing Terminology

Odd Jackets – Sport Coats – Blazers – Men'sSuit Jacket – Menswear Clothing Terminology Hi.

Iím Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

And today I'm going to talking about sportsjackets, blazers, odd jackets.

Whatís the difference? Why do we use all these different terminologyand how can you put it to use in your wardrobe? Okay.

So we used these words over, I see them inthe industry often used interchangeably.

But my understanding and you know, this isup for debate, you know, depending on, you know, what form youíre on, I guess what sideof the pawn youíre on and you know, what camp youíre in.

But Iím going to give you my view.

So take it with a grain of salt but this isbased on of my research, my understanding, my talking with the lot of the experts inthe field.

Okay.

So the odd jacket.

The term odd jacket simply means any jacketthat is not made to have a particular pair of trousers to go with it.

So a suit is defined as a jacket in a pairedtrousers made from the same fabric.

Odd jackets, by the very name, do not havea matching pair of trousers.

So any jacket out there that does not havea matching pair of trousers, whether it be a blazer of sports jacket, is technicallyan odd jacket.

So thatís an all encompassing word.

You donít see it used very much because itjust sounds odd.

And therefore, Iím not going to talk aboutodd jackets.

And thatís kind of like the overarching word.

But Iím going to talk about the two subsetsof odd jackets.

And thatís the blazer and sport jackets.

And these, in my opinion are very different.

Oh Iíve seen some writers use them interchangeablyand I think that that ñ I think itís wrong.

And the reason ñ because I think the blazeris a much more structured piece, sports jackets are more general and you can even say, a blazeris a sports jacket but Iím not going to go down in that path.

Iím simply going to say that a blazer isa blazer.

Sports jackets, I think they develop afterblazer.

I think like 40 or 50 years later.

And so I look at them as their own pieces.

And they were developed primarily for theman of sport, the man who wanted to still look good but was going to be playing tennis, was going to be going out hunting, and he still wanted a jacket to wear.

So letís talk about blazers.

What makes a blazer unique? Well, one of the first things or youíre goingto notice that they are almost always blue.

Now, blazers can come in red, they can comein green, they can come in other shades of very dark, I think somber colors.

But what youíre going to see is primarily, they are navy blue.

And youíre going to see them in a blue worstedthatís considered by many of the experts, the classic fabric for it to be made from.

But youíll see them in flannel, you go seemthem in hopsack, youíll see them in other, just a regular worsted wool.

So blazers besides being navy blue, they alsohave oftentimes very unique buttons.

So youíll mother of pearl on blazers occasionally.

Youíll see silver.

Youíll see gold buttons.

Youíll see brass buttons.

Youíll see family heirlooms.

So all types of different things used forbuttons on blazers.

But the key is the blazer buttons always standout a bit more.

Although there were some modern men who ñthey donít want to stand out and they particularly choose to go with a very muted button.

The other thing about the blazer is its navalhistory and its association with, I think anything nautical.

So anytime youíre on ñ you go to Anapolisor you know, out to Monterey, California thatís where a blazer — itís going to have a greatfeel to it.

Itís going to be something that ñ it justhas a very strong and very deep history and association with bolts, supposedly from theHMS blazers where it gets its name.

You know, thatís up for debate on that story.

But in any case, I would say thatís whatcategorizes a blazer.

One other thing, blazers also can be double-breasted.

You rarely ever see that.

In fact, Iíve almost never see it in sportsjacket.

But blazers are, I think by definition, abit more formal than sports jackets.

And therefore, youíll see them as double-breasted.

And usually when youíre wearing a blazer, you want to wear a tie.

Now Iím actually wearing a sports jackethere and you may wonder, you know, a lot of it ñ well this looks like a lot like a blazerbut itís actually a sports jacket.

So thatís probably a great transition.

What makes a sports jacket? Well to me a sports jacket is a general termfor pretty much anything that is not a blazer.

So sports jackets have the word sport in them.

And thatís because they were developed mostlyin the 1920s and 30s, whenever men were starting to exercise, more get out and play sportsand they wanted to be gentlemenís sports.

And they wanted a jacket that was made particularlyfor the actual sport.

So we saw this in tennis, moved over intohunting — actually I hunting, itís been aroundÖ Öfor a long time.

There have been jackets like the Norfolk.

And these jackets were actually developedwith their own unique style.

So you know, this jacket doesnít have it, but on the back of some of the hunting jackets, they would actually have a lot of vents.

So the jacket could open up more so that ñyou know, a shooting jacket.

It wouldnít be a restricted if youíre goingbe firing a rifle.

So these jackets enabled you to look likea gentleman and behave like a gentleman but at the same time be a ñ you know, a mobilesportsman and be able to do pretty much what ñ if you think about, what most of us weuse performance gear when weíre out.

You know doing these extreme sports or youknow the tri-athletes, these guys are actually wearing tweet suits.

And tweet is pretty rough.

A lot of people theyíre very careful withtheir wool tweet because they spend a lot of money on it.

But when it comes down to it, a lot of thesesports jacket fabrics were developed to be able to do it, you know, take a rough andtumble.

Thatís why on sports jacket youíll see pocketsor shoulder ñ Iím sorry ñ elbow patches.

Well that is so that you can put the elbowdown on a rougher area and not have to worry about it.

You know, another one on shooting jacketsyouíll see actually a leather patch up here.

You know, all of these actually had a reasonfor being in existence.

So getting ñ letís get to the modern sportsjacket.

The modern sports jacket, youíre going tosee a wide range of fabrics.

And in fact this is a sports jacket simplybecause I got a check pattern in it.

Itís actually a glen check here.

And another thing with sports jackets is theyíregoing to be a little bit less formal.

So youíre going to see ñ I use what is it, a patch pocket on this.

You canít see my bottom but I got, let mesee if I can, yeah, it probably didnít pop out right.

But in any case, use it more ñ use all typesof styles on sports jacket.

So I love sports jacket simply because theyíreless restrictive than suits or blazers and you can do — have all types of fun with them.

I mean look at this really unique lapel overhere.

Itís a little bit of ñ you know, of a sportylook.

I saw this one time in a magazine, you know, from a designer that came up with this years ago and I was like, ìHey, I want to do thison my sports jacket.

î Another thing with sports jackets besidesthe wide range of style, the wide range of fabrics, the fact that they were designedfor sport, I think sports jackets theyíre just overall going to be less formal thanblazers or any other type of you know, trying to match a suit jacket with a pair of jeans.

And so they can go with denim.

And I really like to wear sports jacket withdenim, always sports jacket looks great a pair of odd trousers like corduroy or grayflannels or something to that extent.

Okay.

So hopefully that clarifies things again.

Youíve got odd jackets, youíve got blazers, youíve got sports jackets and thatís how theyíre all sort of related.

Both blazers and sports jackets are odd jackets.

Blazers are not necessarily, you know, somepeople argue but I think theyíre separate because they came about a different time periods.

Okay.

Hopefully, I did not confuse you.

If I did, I guess you can send me an emailand Iíll either redo theÖ.

Menswear Fiber Types & Weaves – Men's Clothing Fabrics – Satin Basket Twill Weaves – Silk – Wool

Menswear Fiber Types & Weaves – Men's ClothingFabrics – Satin Basket Twill Weaves – Silk – Wool Hi.

I’m Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

Today, I’m going to be talking about “Understandingfiber types and weaves?” All right, if you haven’t already, pleasesubscribe to our Youtube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this, if you findit useful, please click down below on the like button.

And finally, I’m going to link you to anarticle in which I talk more about fabric types and weaves and getting to a lot moredetail with this because this video is going to be really short and it is the responseto a question I received.

And it’s “Hi Antonio.

I have a quick question for you.

I bought some Peter Miller neckties and they’re100% silk but they look and feel like a flan of wool.

It has a slightly felted surface.

I emailed Peter Miller and even the customerservice didn’t have an answer as to why it was so.

They want me to take pictures and send itto them.

I thought you may know how they manufacturethis and why it doesn’t feel like a normal silk.

” Okay, this is a great question and what itcomes down to is that most of the times we’ve got an impression of what a fabric shouldfeel like.

If I say cotton, if something comes to yourmind and you’ve got an idea of what cotton should be like.

If I said wool, something comes to your mindand you have an idea of what wool should be like and the same for silk neckties.

If I say silk neckties, for 99.

9% of people, it’s a very smooth – close your eyes and think of it.

It’s very smooth, lustrous, like this necktieright here, very nice, but the gentleman who wrote me, what he has is it is a silk necktiebut it’s actually been woven, non traditionally so normally we’ll see what’s called asatin weave and that’s a reflective weave.

It’s one that’s very tight and that’swhat we see where in that’s most of the time 99.

9% of the time what silk is woveninto.

But he has here is a complex three dimensionalweave which is actually using a nap surface and so this is a weave in which they may havehad only used the basket or a twill weave but have to actually look at – probablya basket weave.

And they’ve mixed it with another threedimensional weave.

If you can imagine, basically they finishand they’ve refined the fabric so that it’s got a little bit of silk hairs that come outand that gives it a very nap feel.

So in the same way that this is wool, thisjacket is wool yet it’s a tweed and it’s got a very soft.

You almost want to go to sleep in somethinglike this but it’s the same wool, it’s made from the same fabric as a worsted woolsuit which has a very slick.

It’s not going to have this nap surfacewhich is that hair.

It’s a very straight surface on there.

So hopefully that makes big sense.

Again, go to the link down below.

I’ll try to explain this more in an articlebut it comes down to our expectations that all silk has to be a certain way and all woolhas to be a certain way and all cotton has to be a certain way and a great example issynthetic fibers.

So think about fleece and then think aboutsomething you’re active wear.

Fleece is very soft.

It keeps you very warm.

It’s very thick versus some of that activewhere it’s very thing.

It pulls sweat right from your body.

Other times you’ve probably had somethingmade from polyester which is really, really bad quality.

Other times you got something made from amore modern polyester or rayon or one of these other fabrics, other combinations and actuallyfeels very nice and it’s something that you love to wear.

So understanding that what the fabric is isonly one part of the story.

You’ve also got to understand the weaveand there were a number of other components but to answer this gentleman’s question, it is probably 100% silk and what it comes down to is it’s been woven in a complexpattern that gives it that nap surface is what you’re feeling.

Okay, hopefully that cleared up.

Again, go to the article.

I’ll try to give you teaching more aboutsynthetic fibers, about cotton, about wool and we’ll also talk a little bit about weaves.

Mens Style Info Overload – Too Many Male Fashion Blogs – How To Find Good Style Websites

Mens Style Info Overload – Too Many Male FashionBlogs – How To Find Good Style Websites Hi.

Iím Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

Today, Iím going to be talking about ìHowto deal with information overload when youíre learning about style from the web.

î Okay, if you havenít already, please subscribe to our Youtube channel.

You can do that by clicking on the subscribebutton right up there.

In addition, if you like this, if you findit useful, I would appreciate it if you would like my video down below and finally, Iímgoing to link you down below to a useful article and Iím also going to link you to my free47 page E-book and in that E-book, we give away a lot of great information about styleand Iíll stay in touch whether itíd be email and get you a lot more.

Okay so this is the question that came in.

ìHey, Antonio.

Iím an 18 year old guy living in Brooklyn, New York.

All my life Iíve been wearing clothes thateither donít match, donít fit well, well, they just donít look good.

In high school, this wasnít a problem becauseeverybody dressed bad however, now that Iím emerged into the real world; Iíve run intothe problem of, well, I just donít look sharp.

Iíve tried looking at Men Style websitesand blogs but they donít seem to help me because thereís information everywhere.

Thereís just too much of it.

Everybody has their opinions on how they shouldlook so basically, I need help organizing this information.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you, Dimitri.

î Okay, Dimitri, let me go ahead and say, youíreexactly right.

I look out there on the web and it used tobe, I think when Ask Andy started his forum about 10 years ago, there really wasnít muchout there.

10 years later, the year 2011, now going into2012, there is almost too much out there and there is a lot of crap out there on the weband youíre exactly right.

A lot of them are opinions.

One of the reasons I started Real Men RealStyle is I wanted to give people kind of a more authoritative, bit of a source of informationcoming from a custom clothier guy that deals with his dress literally thousands of men.

I felt I could give a more authoritative butat the same time, I think it comes down to you need to find people that you relate with.

Now, you said youíre in Brooklyn, New Yorkso I would think youíre going want to focus on bloggers who focus on big cities becauseif you focus on small town bloggers or people maybe that are in areas that arenít reallyas relative to New York, itís going to be hard.

So look maybe at Chicago that would be a greatcity to look for a blogger but maybe somebody down in Darwin, Australia.

Well, probably not going to be the kind ofstyle youíre looking for or somebody over in Japan.

The Japanese, amazing people, and their styleis, well actually their fashion is very forward and it may not be what you want to be wearing.

Also be looking for somebody that matchesyou when it comes to your personal taste so perhaps youíve got, from your name, it seemedlike maybe you got a Russian or Ukrainian background.

In that case, if youíre Slovak, you wantto maybe try to find a blogger who resonates with you and with everything that you wouldsee in with a kind of ñ just people that you hang out with.

Be looking for that but here are the quicktips I put together for you.

One of them is understand that you doníthave to go out there looking for all the information.

A great way to absorb a lot of informationis have it come to you so look at RSS and have that come right to your homepage andyou can choose which blogs youíre receiving content from.

That way, you donít have to actually go tothe blog unless you see a title that you really like.

Another way is subscribe up to email lists.

Iíve got a great email list.

Every week, Iím sending out helpful tips.

Occasionally Iím selling or promoting someof companies I support but in any case, I stay in touch with a lot of people via email.

Another way is Twitter.

I donít know if youíre on Twitter but thereísa lot of people that you can follow their tweets and thatís a great way to get a goodsummary of what you want to see.

Facebook, oh thereís a mosquito.

Iím outside if you canít tell but anothergreat way is Facebook so you can follow somebody on Facebook and you can see whatís goingon via Facebook.

So really find a way that you want to absorbthe content and go with that.

After that, you want to maybe look for smallerbloggers.

Look for somebody that not only can you connectwith but will actually respond when you send an email.

So if you go over to that guy, the sartorialist, youíre going to find that he just doesnít respond to emails anymore because he literallygets probably a thousand a day.

Now, Iím not up at that level but I can tellyou that I get dozens of emails every single day and itís hard for me to respond to people.

Iím able to get back to you via video butIím finding that this is almost becoming overwhelming so my advice would be to lookfor somebody that you respect, thatís a bit smaller, doesnít think heís getting a lotof traffic or people arenít leaving a lot of comments and go and talk to this guy.

Engage with him and youíll find that youíregoing to get a lot more value working with a small guy than working with somebody huge.

I also write over the Art of Manliness anditís really hard for Brett and Kate to get a hold of me.

When you put out a single post and you gethundreds of comments, itís just hard to respond to that.

And finally, look at some of the blogs thatyou really enjoy and look over on the side and see who they are linking to.

Who do they recommend? So thatís a really quick way instead of yougoing out there and searching with Google or some of the other search engines.

For you to actually just see who the peopleyou trust are recommending.

All right Dimitri, I hope that helped andjust to let you know, I am going to be putting out a course which is going to address thisproblem of analysis paralysis.

Itís going to be called ìThe Style System.

îLook for it.

Itís going to be coming out here probablyat the end of November and I donít know, maybe thatíll be something thatíll be ableto help.

Take care and Iíll see you in the next video.

Bye-bye.

Why Dressing Sharp Is Simple For Men – 3 Male Fashion Tips – Man's Guide to Style

Why Dressing Sharp Is Simple For Men – 3 MaleFashion Tips – Man's Guide to Style Hi.

Iím Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMan Real Style.

And today weíre to be talking about why dressingsharp is simple for men.

Okay.

If you havenít already, please subscribeto our YouTube Channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, I would appreciate it if youwould like the video if you do like it.

That way I can create more like this.

And if you want to learn more about what Iímtalking about here in the video, then, please, go to the article I linked to right over here.

And youíre going to find some great informativearticle, so you can learn more about what weíre talking about here.

Okay.

So, Iím talking about dressing sharp andhow itís really easy for guys.

And thatís true.

Now, perfecting a professional appearance, thatís really hard.

And I think thereís an engineer ñ or maybeitís an operations principle and it talks about how getting ñ and I think itís somethingto do with Six Sigma.

I canít remember from my operations classyears ago.

But it talked about how to get to the 90thpercentile.

Itís actually pretty easy.

You just have to put forth a number of provenpractices and effort, you know, enough effort, youíre going to get to the 90th.

But to go from the 90 to 95 is actually justas difficult as to get that first 90 percentage.

And then to go from 95 to 97 is just as hard.

And then, you know ñ so, you can see howit gets ñ it gets much harder as you get closer to perfection.

But the key point Iím trying to make is toget that first huge gain.

Itís really easy.

And itís something that most men can do becauseitís really ñ itís relative because most men out there are oblivious to style.

They donít even pay attention to it despitebeing incredibly superficial.

Because think about, youíre with a bunchof guys who are in a bar or walking down the street.

And woman walks by in a red dress.

Do we notice that sheís carrying a book? Do we notice that she probably has maybe aHarvard MBA? No.

We donít pay attention.

I mean, we just noticed that wow, thatísa, you know ñ well, you know what goes through our mind.

We ñ and as men, itís funny because we arevery much a visual ñ and we think that, yes, I ñ we think that the fairer sex doesnítpay attention to this stuff.

They do.

And other guys actually pay attention to thisbecause ñ and why do want to dress well for other guys? Well, because you want to have great businesspartners.

And people want to have good business partnerswho are healthy, who are going to be around.

And when you dress sharp, you give off a strongmasculine appearance and feeling.

And whether or not itís for business, whetheror not itís for a potential partner, you want people to be attracted to you.

Okay.

So, what are the three tips? First off, all you have to do is realize thatas a man, we donít have to focus on fashion because fashion is moving all over the place.

What you need to focus on is style.

And style is timeless.

So, lucky for us, if you understand classicstyle, you can look at icons 20 years ago, you could ñ I mean, look at Cary Grant.

They guy could walk out of a 1950s movie andhe would still look great walking down New York City in the year 2011.

And that makes it really easy for us becausewe can apply principles, which are proven and we can spend a little bit more money onit knowing that itís not going to go out of fashion.

So, avoid the fashion.

Look towards classic style.

Youíre going to be safe.

And the other is focus on fit.

So, so many guys never even think to taketheir clothing to a tailor and have it adjusted to fit them.

Or when they buy it off the rack, they donítthink to ñ well, check in the mirror and make sure this fits me right.

So, understand what proper fit is and thenmake sure your clothing fits you.

Finally, the third tip.

You can add two things to your wardrobe, whichare instantly going to take it to the next level, even if youíre a t-shirt and jeanskind of guy.

Upgrade your shoes and wear a jacket.

So, look at a lot of those start-up CEOs.

And I saw ñ it was a joke.

Itís what supposed to be ñ a start-up company, you know, a founder or a college student and the CEO? Well, itís really ñ itís a jacket.

Because he throws on that jacket over hist-shirt and he go on and he pitches the venture capitalist for the money.

And itís ñ but itís really true.

Because you throw a jacket on a guy and itinstantly changes his shape and the perception.

And he wears a t-shirt underneath it or acollared shirt.

Either way, you know, just having that jacketon sends a signal that itís a bit more professional.

That he does pay attention to the small details.

Now, your shoes.

This is where itís very easy for a lot ofguys to make that upgrade because so many of us wear running shoes, trainers, whateveryou want to call them.

Weíre wearing those all the time.

And we need to step away and look at ñ okay, you could get a pair of leather slip-ons.

You could upgrade the dress shoes.

I like to wear a Western boots.

You know, introducing something like thatÖ Öinstantly bring a level of style.

Especially if you go with something that iswell made, well crafted, and you know, I understand not everyone is into Western boots or dressshoes.

Well, get a really nice pair of red wings.

And thatís going to look better than yourtrainers, especially if theyíre clean and theyíre well kept.

And I mean those are great boots.

Theyíre going to last you, you know, 20 yearsand you can have those things resold.

Okay.

So, those were the tips.

And again guys, itís really easy to go from0 to that 90 percentage.

Once you start going up higher, look at myother videos and Iíll give you lots of other tips that youíll need.

Take care.

Cell Phone Holsters As Men's Style Accessories – Male Fashion Tips – Cellphone Accessory Style

Cell Phone Holsters As Men's Style Accessories- Male Fashion Tips – Cell phone Accessory Style Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, I'm going to be talking about cellphone holsters and menswear.

If you haven't already, please subscribe tomy YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this, if you findit useful, I would appreciate it if you would like this video down below.

And finally, I'm going to be linking you tomy free 47-page e-book.

It's a great e-book.

Make sure to grab it.

Okay, this is the question that came in.

“I'm not a holster guy.

I think holsters are for guns, not for peopleto show that I'm really important and that I have a holstered cell phone.

Antonio, what's your take on cell phone holsters? Thanks.

Dwight.

” All right.

Well, he was very to the point and apparently, Dwight does not like cell phone holsters, so be careful, you cell phone holsters ourthere.

Do not get close to Dwight.

He may go postal on you.

I was kidding, Dwight, by the way, but it'sa good question and it's something that we see all the time.

My answer to this is I really didn’t havean opinion on it.

I know I have an opinion on a lot of things, as my wife will tell me, but when it comes to cell phone holsters, I really didn’tgive a lot of thought.

I guess for me coming from the military andactually as a former officer, we actually always carried a holstered weapon wheneveryou're in certain situations, mostly out in the field exercises or in combat or when theysend us off to vacation in those nice, hot desert areas.

I always looked at it as it's functional becauseI liked having a holster.

It was a lot easier.

A lot of guys, the high speed, low drag guyswould always get the holster right there on the leg.

I went with the one they issued us, whichwas fine just right here, but in any case, a holster is there so that you have easy accessto your tool, whatever it may be.

So if you're on your cell phone a lot andyou find that it's just hard to get to some other pockets and you're using a holster andit's working for you, by all means, use it.

It's functional.

I'm a big fan of function.

It comes before style because at the end ofthe day, you need to be able to do your job, but is it something that you could get awaywith not using? So think about it.

If you have a holster for a phone that reallydoesn’t need — you're just using the holster, well, I'm going to talk about reasons whyif you're using a holster for these reasons, you should reconsider and perhaps just getrid of it.

1.

If you have to answer your phone, and thisis a quick draw holster, if you feel that you've got to just reach down there and grabit, I would say maybe look at other options because it's really not important that youget that and answer that phone right after the first ring.

You can wait until the second ring of yourcell phone before you get to it.

So if you're a quick draw holster guy, youmight want to try to get over that, and if you can't get over it, you may need to seekhelp.

2.

If you're doing it because you really likethe look, if it makes you feel more important that you've got this big holster and maybeyou've also got the big western belt buckle that you never actually rode a bull but you'restill going to wear that anyway, if you're wearing it because of looks, then you mightwant to get rid of it.

And so, I would advise you, no.

Really, again, maybe seeking help and justgetting off of that mentality and jumping in to your huge 4×4 with huge tires and thebig grill on the front, which is funny because I have a big 4×4 truck with a grill on thefront.

I don't have huge tires on it, but it's apretty big truck.

I always get stares.

It's a Texas grill.

Come on.

If you are in Texas, you understand what I'mtalking about.

You go to another state and they don't havegrills on their vehicles.

I hit a deer with this one time and it savedmy truck.

Okay, back to cell phone holsters.

3.

If you received it as a gift, then you don'thave to wear it all the time just because you received it as a gift.

It's kind of like that sweater that you getaround the holidays.

You only want to wear that sweater when you'regoing to be around the person that presented it to you because you're that much of a gentleman.

Okay, guys, those are the only three reasonsI could think of that you would want to get rid of it.

Again, it comes down to function.

If that holster's working for you, if it'sfunctional, then wear it.

But if you're just wearing it because you'vealways done it and if your cell phone has migrated to the type that is very slim, itfits right into a pocket, I would look at getting rid of it.

I mean, anytime you can get rid of somethingthat really doesn't add value, it's a good thing to do.

Okay.

This has been Antonio Centeno with Real MenReal Style.

I'll see you in the next video.

Bye-bye.

Men's Off-The-Rack Dress Shirts – Understanding The Different Fits Male Clothing

Men's Off-The-Rack Dress Shirts – UnderstandingThe Different Fits Male Clothing Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style, and today, we're going to be addressing the question, “What shirt manufacturers workbest for different body types?” If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

And if you like this, if you find it useful, please click on the “like” button right down there.

In addition, grab our free 47-page e-book.

It's free and it's great and I think you'regoing to enjoy it.

And last but not least, I'm going to linkyou to an article, which is going to expand on what I'm talking about.

Okay, this is the question that came in, “I'ma relatively built man and it gives me a lot of problems when buying dress shirts.

Pants and jackets, I can pick up at any oldthrift store, but I can't seem to find a good fitted shirt short of dropping $30 per shirtat the tailors.

As a student, I'm looking for a way aroundthis.

I'm wondering if you could do a post on whichshirt manufacturers work best for what builds.

I know they use different models and theyuse different designers, but I just want basically to figure out how this all works.

” Okay, so that was the question that came in.

Unfortunately, I think I know what he wants.

He basically wants a database and for us tohave Calvin Klein or Charles Tyrwhitt or Brooks Brothers, and then to break out exactly whattheir measurements are and how all their sizing works because he is right.

Different companies use different models tomake different types of shirts and of different fits, but the problem with what he's askingis that it's not a steady target.

It's very difficult because every year, theseguys are changing the demographic that they're going after and the target market.

So the demographics are changing in the country, so it used to be in the United States that if you bought a shirt off the rack in the1960s, it was a trimmer build.

In the year 2012, we are a much bigger people, so most of the shirts being manufactured are for bigger people.

So the problem there is that over time, thesedemographics shift, and so that does change.

You'll find that Brooks Brothers is changingthe actual models and the sizing of that.

In addition, these companies oftentimes werebought or they'll decide to change the focus of who they're going after.

So one year, the medium will be towards thistarget demographic.

Two years later, they decided to go afterthis group who goes for a different type of fit.

And so, you can imagine I think building adatabase like this is probably — it sounds like a really cool thing to do, but it's goingto be well beyond the scope of anything I'm going to go after, so I would rather insteadarm you with this basic advice, which I think you can apply and then go out there and findwhat you're looking for.

So you need to remember the general rulesare that depending on the country of origin and where it's manufactured and the pricepoint it is sold at is generally going to give you an idea of what demographic they'regoing after and how it's going to fit.

So if it's made in the United States, it'susually going for a larger man and those are going to be bigger, more generous cuts.

If it's targeting and being sold in Japan, it's going to be for a smaller, more petite cut.

If it's going to be targeted and sold in theUK, then that's going to be for a little bit more fit of a cut, although those guys overthere are getting pretty big, too, so they're getting more towards Americans, but normallythose shirts are going to be a bit more tailored, a bit closer fitting to the body, but thecolors are going to be pretty simple.

Now, if it's made for Italians, it's goingto be made close to the fit of the UK for a little bit smaller of a man, but the colors, they're going to have a lot more vibrant colors and they're going to be louder, so it fitswith the personality.

Again, those are very general, but that givesyou an idea.

If you're looking online, if you want to buysomething made by an Italian manufacturer that's primarily sold in Italy, you may wantto go for that if you want a little bit closer of a fit and you want it with a little bitlouder colors.

Now, price point, the smaller and the lowerthe price point, they're going to try to fit more men.

So if you buy a shirt, a dress shirt at Walmart, you're going to find that that's going to usually be very big and very baggy becausethey are trying to fit a hundred different body types into that dress shirt.

Now, if you go to a high-end men's store andyou see dress shirts being sold from $200 to $500, you can bet that they're going aftera much more set demographic.

It's going to usually be a man that takesbetter care — because he's got more disposable income, he takes better care of his body.

Now, for the man that sent us this question, it sounds like what he needs to do is identify those types, those higher ends, and I don'tknow what his color or fabric tastes are, but let's say he does like a little bit morecolor.

Well, I would say look at clothing that'sItalian.

Identify some Italian brands and then go oneBay or perhaps go into thrift stores, put out a bounty perhaps and ask people to belooking for these particular brands.

Now, there are cities like New York wherethey actually have places where a lot of these brands go into a store and you can go through.

Smaller towns, it's going to be really hard, but then again, you may want to look at some vintage clothing because a lot of the stuffmade 30 to 40 years ago before we were eating all these manufactured, processed food andwe weren't as big as we are — you could tell my opinion on this — but in any case, clothingmade 30 to 40 years ago was usually a bit trimmer.

Okay.

The last thing I would say, if you're spending$30 to $40 per shirt, it may be worth his time to actually learn to put in darts himself.

They're not very difficult.

You can pick up a book for a couple of dollarsand learn how to do it yourself and save yourself a lot of money.

That's my answer to the “which shirt manufacturer”.

Sorry for those of you that were looking forme to actually break it all out, but that's a huge project.

If you have done this project, let me knowand I'll put a link to you down below, but as far as I have seen, nobody's done this.

Take care.

Clothes on Film website review – Men's style blog covering movie fashion

Hi.

This is Antonio over at Real Mean RealStyle.

And today, I’m going to be talking about the blog “Clothes on Film”.

AndI feel that this is a neglected blog, one that is been putting out great content andis not getting as much traffic as it deserves.

I’m sure a lot of…a lot of clothing designers, a lot of costume designers, people that pay attention to film and what people are dressingare paying attention to this website.

But I thought, it’s going to be a smartdecision for a lot of my audience, men who are simply looking to improve their personalstyle to come check out this website because, you know, first view, like we see this thingup here about “Captain America” and the First Trailer.

Being a movie fan, I don’tmind the—this is a bit of entertainment.

But, it goes a lot deeper than this but letme—I’m getting ahead of myself.

This blog was started by a gentleman named Chris Laverty.

And I’ve spoken—well, I’ve emailed andtweeted with him—a standup gentleman and he has a lot going on.

But, you know, whyshould the average guy come to this website and check out clothes on film? Well, I’mabout to show you.

So, he gets into the, I mean, the nit gritty details of men’s stylesas we see on television shows and movies.

And so, here is “Mad Men” on John Slatteryand he goes—okay.

I’ve written actually an article very similarto this and which I break out, you know, the Mad Men’s individual style.

But, this istaken to a whole, another level.

And he really goes into very, very deep detail as to whatmakes this particular character looks sharp.

He talks about the double breast.

He talksabout, you know, the fit of the jacket.

He talks about the fabric.

He talks about thecut.

All of the little details he goes into.

And that’s just the start because then hegoes over to a popular movie like “Inception”.

And we learned about Jeffrey Kurland and hiscostume and what, you know, what they were thinking when they put this together, whatthey wanted to portray.

And I think that’s very interesting.

That’s something aboutfilm.

I don’t think there are many other industries where you are going to see so muchtalent paying attention to such small things.

And all of it is recorded for you to observe.

So, you can go to this website and you can learn about the costumes and the movie “Inception”.

And you’re going to look at this film differently and I think that’s something pretty powerful.

You’re going to start paying attention to those small details.

What initially drew meto this website is I think I saw somewhere—it was reposted that he had basically brokendown James Bond’s style.

So, here he talks—we’ve got, you know, the latest James Bond film and some casual pulls from there.

But, you know, where wasI going to go with this? I think the one that I was really impressed with was this one—theSean Connery in “Dr.

No”.

And he breaks them, all of the pieces, how Sean Connerydressed in all of the movies and even talks about how—when he would actually re-wearcertain outfits.

Really, a great job.

I haven’t seen anyone else do this, evenbreaks it down to, you know, whenever he takes the jacket off and all of these great details.

Actually talks about the Dac [0:03:42] [Phonetics] trousers which, you know, who is paying attentionto this stuff? I can tell you, you know, Chris is doing a—gosh! A great job and he, youknow, just a little bit more about him.

He has created clothes.

He created clothes onfilm and he writes most of the content here.

And, yeah, overall, you know, a really approachableguy, very easy to get a hold of on Twitter.

Okay.

So, we talked about the James Bond.

Here’s “Live And Let Die”.

He gets into Roger Moore’s Chesterfield Coat and thenhe pulls up some photos of the actual coat and he gets into great detail and shows howthis, you know, we see how it looks in the movie and he pulls out photos of how it looksin real life.

He also talks about, of course, Michael Douglas and his shirts.

And what’s funny is then he revisits thelatest Wall Street movie and talks about, you know, how things have changed and thenew designs that we see here.

Then, he goes into Michael Kane, which if you’re not afan of film, you know, Michael Kane used to, you know, be a huge star like on—not somuch anymore, but he was very much a tough guy and has some great looks.

And then hegets into a more modern movie, “Eastern Promises”.

Then, he starts getting a bit casual.

Andthis is where actually I feel the website is great for casual style because it startsgiving us ideas.

Now, normally, I wouldn’t recommend the double-breasted with a turtleneck, but he shows how Mark Strong pulled this off and actually does a pretty good job.

I, youknow, not my cup of tea.

I surely like this lower look, this great two-button, single-breasted, dark tooth check suit which he goes in a great detail and allows you to see a look and perhapsyou can incorporate this into your personal style.

Even gets into more of a casual stuff here.

We’ve got—what is it, “Knight and Day”.

And we can see Tom Cruise here on what lookslike either…I think it’s a denim button up but pays closer attention to the buttons.

And we can see how that looks on a man.

And then, he gets into some really casual things.

I mean, who would have thought you could pull inspiration from “The Big Lebowski”.

But, he does that and he talks about JeffBridges’s sweater, an entire article on this sweater and basically more detail thanyou would have thought.

But it really brings up, you know—hey, if you want to incorporatea cardigan, it’s very good article read to help build a foundation.

And he even touchesthings like “The Warriors”.

Now, I’m not advocating you out to get a leather vestwith Warrior on the back.

But I can tell you that wearing a vest creativelycan add a lot to a man’s individual style.

I’ve written about it and I like where…Ilike where Chris takes this.

It is a overall, a very well-written blog that is very strongon visual images and it is well worth your time.

He’s got the Archive over here soyou can just click to that and you will be taken to three years of articles.

A lot tolook at here.

Again, this is Antonio Centeno over at RealMen Real Style and I highly advice you check out the blog, “Clothes on Film”.

Havea great day.

Bye-bye.

4 Components of a Man's Personal Style – Basic Fashion Advice for Men

4 Components of a Man's Personal Style – BasicFashion Advice for Men Hi, Iím Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

Today Iím going to be talking about the fourcomponents of individual style.

All right, component number one is your physicalbuild.

Component number two, is both your physicaland your social environment.

Component number three, are your resources.

And this is both time and money.

And component number four, these are yourpersonal wants.

Okay.

So, let me go ahead and go and do over a littlebit of detail about each of them.

Component number one ñ your physical build.

Now, this is what you were born with ñ howbig you are, how tall you are, how wide you are.

There are certain things that you can controland do fluctuate throughout your life.

Usually, your weight, in terms of how wideyouíre going to get.

Some of us are skinny because we were bornthat way and we eat, we take care of our bodies.

There are some of us, in fact, many, in thiscountry that were just a little bit bigger.

And in that case, you need to choose clothingwhich complements your build.

Now when it comes to height, whether youíreshort or whether youíre taller than average, you want to look for clothing that, in somecases, you want it to make you look taller.

Other times, youíre really tall and you donítnecessarily want to look shorter, but you want to look more proportioned.

And thatís probably the key point ñ is makingsure you choose clothing, which makes you look more proportional.

And thatís all about balance.

Thatís about you understanding that if youíretall and really skinny, you donít want clothing thatís going to make you look any tallerand skinnier.

You want clothing that is going to, in a sense, give you a little bit of weight, cut you down the size, and make you look more proportional.

Make you look more normal.

If youíre short and stout, you know, thereisnít anything out there that is going to make you taller and thin.

But you can choose clothing, which isnítgoing to make you look fat.

And thatís where you go from monochromaticlooks, or you go for combinations that donít cut you in half and draw attention to yourmidsection.

Okay.

Component number two, this is your physicaland social environment.

So, your individual style, oftentimes, isdetermined ñ and weíll start with the social because this is something youíve got to lookat where youíre at in your life, who you hang out with, and what social circles yourun in.

Now, I live in rural Wisconsin.

So, I can tell you Iím pretty much surroundedby farmers.

I have to dress down even though Iím a costumeclothier because in order to, not really alienate, I canít be wearing a suit.

So, I choose to wear raw denim.

I wear Western boots.

I, oftentimes, throw on a sports jacket butI rarely ever wear tie.

And for me, this is my personal style.

And it is influenced by who Iím surroundedby.

I bet, you know, if I lived in New York City, I would have to step up my game quite a bit.

But I donít.

So, thatís how the social circle or the socialcircles I run in.

In addition to, you know, the physical location, all play into.

And when I was talking more physical, Iímalso talking the weather.

So, if youíre in Phoenix, Arizona, you needto choose clothing and go with styles which are going to be cool and functional in thathot weather.

Now, letís say youíre from Vancouver, Canada.

Totally different environment, you get a lotof wet weather up there.

Itís a lot cooler.

The summers are very mild.

The winters are pretty harsh.

Not as bad though, as I can tell you, letíssay youíre in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Those winters are just wow.

Weíre talking negative 20, negative 30 degrees.

And if youíre going to be out, letís sayyou ñ in the case youíre a Minnesotan, you need to invest in some really nice outer wear.

Something that is going to, not only be functionaland keep you warm, but something that if thatís what people see you in often ñ and letísmove over to a city like Chicago.

Thereís a lot of people in the city of Chicagowhich commute and use public transportation.

In this city, probably more than Minneapolis, youíre going to want to have clothing that is great for outer wear.

And itís going to do a good job protectingyou.

Again, what Iím getting is, weíre movingfrom city to city, but you need to pay attention to the environment.

And thatís going to have an effect becauseyouíre not going to want to add a trench coat to your wardrobe, if youíre down inthe desert and youíre never going to be able to get anywhere.

And if it doesnít really make sense fromprotecting you from, you know, a rain shower or something like that.

But if youíre in an environment, and whichsuits you, then youíre going to want to add it to your wardrobe.

So, okay.

And that was paying attention to your bothyour physical and your social circles that you run in.

All right, the third component of individualstyle is your resources.

This really comes down to how much time doyou have and how much money.

And Iíll use an extreme example for each.

Students ñ anyone that is going through schoolor hasnít yet made a career.

Somebody thatís just starting off in life, usually you donít have much when it comes to money.

And in this case, you want to be looking foritems that you can afford.

And Iím not saying to buy cheap items.

Donít buy disposable pieces that youíregoing to throw away.

Instead, youíre going to have to look atsecond-hand stores.

Youíre going to have to really keep youreye out for sales.

And thatís because you have a lot more timethan you have money.

Now, letís take a lawyer.

One thatís very successful, one that is incrediblybusy, works 80 hours a week.

Now, for this man, he doesnít have time.

And he wants to ñ instead, he would rathertrade a bit of money to get exactly what he wants.

So, in this case, he doesnít mind going inpaying full retail, but at the same time, he doesnít want to waste his money.

So, this man should also be looking at timeless, classic pieces which are going to last him a long time.

But yet heís probably going to pay a littlebit more because he doesnít have weeks, or months, or years to spend going through thriftstores trying to build up his wardrobe.

The last component of individual style isyour personal wants.

Now, notice I said wants not needs.

Oftentimes, you know, donít confuse the two.

These are ñ this is where youíre going toexperiment a bit.

This is where you want to incorporate thingswhich are a little bit ñ theyíre not always within the classic realm.

And these are the things, you know, to havea little bit of fun.

And this is where, I highly advice if youíreyoung, to experiment.

Go try things.

I mean, who knows? You know, it may turn into your signaturestyle.

You want to try a hat.

Itís better to try it young than too ñ well, Iím if youíre seven year old and you want to start wearing a hat, go ahead.

Go for it.

Iím just saying that experiment and go outthere and find what you think is going to ñ what you think is going to compliment you.

And donít be afraid to go out there and trythat.

But, you know, when it comes to personal stylewants, I did put this at the end.

Because I do believe a man needs to buildup a core wardrobe based off the other components first and heís going to find that by payingattention to those other components, heís still going to have a wide range of options.

Just because you live down in Arizona, doesnítmean that, you know ñ yes, you probably not going to need a heavy overcoat.

But there are so many other things that youcan look to add in to your personal wardrobe that may not have been really cold climatescanít.

You can start looking at headwear which isfunctional for the heat.

You can bring in types of safari shirts, ortypes of linen trousers that those men just canít pull off but you can wear, you know, 10 months out of the year.

Okay.

So thatís the four components of individualstyle and I hope you enjoyed it.

Take care and go ahead and check out Realmen Real Style.

Look throughout the website.

Hopefully, thereís a lot more informationout there and best of luck to you.

Bye-bye.

Mens Clothing Sizes – Understanding Menswear Sizing – Male Shirt Suit Trouser Measurements

Menís Clothing Sizes – Understanding MenswearSizing – Male Shirt Suit Trouser Measurements Hi.

Iím Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

And today weíre going to be talking aboutUnderstanding Clothing Sizes in Menswear.

Okay.

If you havenít already, make sure to subscribeto our YouTube Channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this video, pleaseclick on the like button right down there.

In addition, Iím going to link you to anarticle which will talk more about measuring and actually how to collect your own measurements.

Okay.

So, menswear sizes ñ and this is a questionthat came in.

Basically, itís ñ ìDear Antonio.

What is the exact difference between a casualbutton down oxford, sized small, medium, large and extra large in dress button down oxford, sized by neck and sleeve measurements.

Is it the cut over material or something else? Iíve seen both in solids and quite ñ canítquite figure it out.

î Really, the question the gentleman is askingis ñ why are some shirts sized small, medium, large, extra-large.

And other times we get the neck size and thesleeve length.

And the short answer is that itís actuallycheaper to make shirts sized small, medium, large, extra-large because youíre only makingit four sizes.

Whenever you go the other route, you are actuallyhaving to make more sizes because as you can imagine, we got two variables.

And youíre immediately, you know, with thosevariables, youíre going to have a lot more than four sizes of shirts.

So, if youíre choosing between the two ñusually a higher quality brand is going to go with the neck size and the sleeve length.

So, right there, thatís an indicator of whichones to buy.

Although, you may find that, you know, thesmall, medium, large, you know, fits you just fine.

In any case, the point I want to address todayis that sizing ñ when it comes down to this stuff, you cannot trust the label when itcomes to sizing in menswear, even when you buy from the same brand.

So, you could have bought Brooks Brothersin letís say, 2004 and a shirt that you buy in 2006, and another one that you see availablenow in 2011.

Those ñ even though, they are both ñ letíssay, theyíre both mediums, they may be actually completely different sizes.

Because the model that youíre using and whattheyíre basing, you know, that target demographic theyíre going after can change.

Now ñ so, okay, thanks Antonio.

Thatís all bad news.

So, are you telling me there is no set system? Yes, Iím telling you there is no set system.

But what you need to do is break free of thethinking that you have to pay attention to the labels.

I mean, they were ñ they arenít like a gauge.

Itís like saying, you know, is it hot orcold water? Well, thatís not it.

You want to know what degree temperature ofthat water is because, you know, hot and cold is pretty relative.

So, in the same way, you need to know whatyour measurements are.

So, go get a tape measure and measure yourself.

And when you know that and when youíre ontop of your measurements, then you can go in with a tape measure and look at a pieceof clothing and lay it out and immediately be able to judge ñ is this going to fit methe way I want it to? And that way when you go in to the fittingroom, when you try it on, itís much closer.

Or if youíre buying on the web, that youíreable to go a companyís website and look at the measurements of the clothing and makea quick decision as to whether or not this is going to fit you.

So, you want to ignore the tags and know yourmeasurements.

In addition, you want to understand fabrics.

So, realize that something is made from 100%cotton can have some shrinkage.

And especially if you expose it to heat, itísgoing to have some shrinkage.

In addition, if something is made from wool, it will shrink if you expose to heat or another great thing about that is that it also wasgoing to conform to your body over time.

So, understanding that, youíre going to havea little bit of play and youíre going to have a lot more success buying clothing.

Again, you need to know what your measurementsare.

And you know, you can ñ I mean, because somecompanies ñ I know it sounds like, ìOkay, if they tell me what that their necks were16 and that their, you know, the sleeve length is 33.

I should be able to match that up.

And that should be consistent, right?î Well, not again.

Not always.

Because if a shirt, if itís made from a lowerquality cotton thatís not woven together super tight, then you could see a bit moreshrinkage.

And so, that sleeve length could end up beingñ more like 32 or a 32.

25 versus a true 33.

So, little things like that youíre goingto have to pay attention to.

And well, guys, at the end of the day, knowyourself, know your measurements.

And when you use that as the gauge, youíregoing to find that youíre going to get a much closer fit when youíre out there lookingfor clothing.

Okay.

This is has been Antonio Centeno with RealMen Real Style.

And hope youíve learned a little bit aboutmeasurements.

And go out there and dress with style.

Take care.

These are awesome.

These are life-savers and I'll just give youa quick story.

I was traveling throughout Chicago going toa conference when I first started my company, and it was pretty embarrassing, but as a customclothier, I had a shirt that was one of my favorites, but I had not worn a tie with itfor a year.

I go to button that the morning of the conferenceand I drove probably four and a half hours to get there, so it was early when I left.

Now, I didn’t put the tie one when I leftand my shirt collar had shrunk.

I don't know how it happened, but yes, myshirt collar shrunk.

That's all we're going to say.

Needless to say, it was like by half an inchand I just needed to move — I knew I needed to just move that button and I would get somethingthat would work for the day or take a safety pin and put it together.

You can find ways to rig this up here, butin any case, I was thinking like, “Okay, what can I do? What are my steps going to be?” I realized this conference is in a hotel.

I went down to the bottom of the hotel.

I asked the people working at the desk nicelyand lo and behold, they actually gave me this sewing kit right here.

There are a lot of them.

I think Gilchrist & Soames, they make a lotof these, so there's a good chance you could have a Gilchrist & Soames.

I don't know a whole lot about the company.

I think it's just a fancy-sounding name, butin any case, they gave me one just like this.

I went into the bathroom and just cut offthe — I asked for a pair of scissors as well — and simply cut it, re-sewed it, moved itover just a bit, and lo and behold.

The rest of the day, it worked like a charm.

So little emergencies like that, when youget a little tear on the seam, anything you could think of, you lose a button, many, manyfixes can be fixed because what you're going to find in this emergency sewing kit is usuallya number of types of thread, probably three to six needles, two to four buttons, and asafety pin, and really that's all you need to release the inner MacGyver when it comesto clothing.

This can fix a lot more than clothing.

I'll just leave it up to your imagination, but there are many things that any time it tears or breaks, that having an emergencysewing kit is going to save the day.

And again, you don't have to be staying inthat hotel.

They've got these things lying around.

I'm not saying that every time you go by ahotel, you'll stop and just grab one, although maybe I am saying that.

It would probably be a good idea, but in anycase, every time I travel now, I make sure to grab one.

I've fairly got 10 to 15 of them lying around.

And so, I always have one hidden in my luggagewhenever I'm flying.

I have one in each of my vehicles.

You would be surprised.

Actually, we used one at my brother's weddingdown in Nashville, Tennessee.

We had a 30-minute drive out to the weddingand one of the groomsmen, his suit was rented and it was just so big on him.

It was just the wrong size, and my wife tookit right there and with the emergency sewing kit made the adjustments on the suit.

She shortened the sleeve length by a goodinch and a half.

She opened up the jacket and brought it inwith an emergency sewing kit.

My wife is not a seamstress, but she's goodwith needle and thread.

She probably could be one.

It just goes to show that human beings, wecan figure things out.

Don't underestimate yourself and get thatemergency sewing kit.

Okay.

Hidden Pockets & Mens Clothing – Men's Style Advice – Male Fashion Tips – Menswear Pockets

Hidden Pockets & Men's Clothing – Men's StyleAdvice – Male Fashion Tips – Menswear Pockets Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, we're going to be talking about men'sclothing and hidden pockets.

If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this video, if youfind it useful, I would appreciate it if you would like it down below.

I'm also going to link you to an article aboutmen's pockets and to the link to our free 47-page e-book.

Grab it; you'll like it.

Okay, this is the question that came in.

“My friend used to be a costumer for the filmindustry and he told me that in the days past, men's jackets, uniforms, all of that stuffused to have pockets in the tail of the jacket right around the small of the back.

Presumably, this will allow one to carry morestuff while reducing bulges in parts of the outfit that would more easily show.

Have you ever heard of this and would yourecommend it as an option for custom-made suits?” Okay, so something that not many men haveever thought of because everything we purchase is pretty much already pre-built.

This is a great question and it's one veryspecific, one that I would like to take you back a little bit in time and think abouthow clothing was made a hundred years ago.

You couldn't just go into a store and findthe selection that you find today, even 50 years ago.

Ready-made clothing was not as common as itis today.

Now, we take it for granted that you can walkinto a mall or you can even look online and find literally millions of options when itcomes to clothing.

It used to be though that clothing had tobe made for you and most men who couldn't afford a tailor, which is most men, they actuallywould have it handmade at home.

So your wife, yourself, I mean, men knew howto sew.

It was something that was expected, somethingthat we did as people that needed clothing and we used better materials because whatwe had, we would repair again and again.

You can look at old photos and you can seepatches on clothing and this stuff actually lasted for years.

Nowadays, we live in a disposable societywhere it seems like it's cheaper just to go out and buy something new and replace it ratherthan patching.

The skills of sewing, well, they've disappeared.

And so, this clothing that the gentleman isreferring to especially in one of the last places where people actually do make a lotof clothing is in the costume industry.

In fact, when I was a student at the Universityof Texas, I found that going over to the — I don't know exactly what department it was.

They had their own building and that’s whereall the — the theater department, I guess.

They had a costume section and those guyswould build a lot of the clothing because what they would need, they just couldn't affordto go out and have it reproduced by a professional tailor, so they would learn to make theirown clothing.

Nowadays, whenever you see an old time moviebeing made, one that's being made, let's say, the year 2012 but it's supposed to reflect1912, a lot of that clothing you see in the movie was actually made for that movie orpicked up in thrift stores, but normally you'll have someone doing the history research ifthey've got a big enough budget and they will find some tailors and seamstresses to makethe clothing.

Now, what does this have to do with pockets? Well, if your clothing was made for you, youcould choose to put pockets anywhere.

And being a custom clothier, I've had gentlemencome in and request pockets all over the place.

I've got one gentleman.

He likes to carry cigars, so he wants pocketson the inside of his jacket that is specifically made for the types of cigars he smokes.

I've got another gentleman who spends timein South America and he does security.

He has been robbed.

Well, without going into it in too much detail, let's just say he likes to have hidden pockets on his clothing because whenever he is searched, they don't take his clothing, but they oftentimes do empty out his wallet and take his entirewallet, so he wants to have hidden places on his body where he can, well, let's justsay keep an extra 50, 100 bucks so that he doesn’t have to walk back home.

So the quick answer is this pocket that he'stalking about in the small of the back, I haven't had anyone request, but looking atthat area, that would be a fine place to actually have something, but it's not going to be reallyeasy to reach, but I can see why you would want to fill up that space because the limitationsof where you can put a hidden pocket are really going to be the lines of the jacket and thetype of fit that you have, and the skill of the tailor or seamstress putting it in.

I've put in hidden pockets right over hereon the arm.

I've put them in on the inside.

I like to even have hidden pockets down atthe bottom end of the jacket to add a little bit of weight to the bottom, so a quick trickto have a little pocket down here where you can keep a coin or a weight if I'm makinga jacket that's going to be for concealed carry and I don't want it to blow open, solittle places like that.

I put hidden pockets if necessary, if a clientrequests.

On off-the-rack clothing though, you're notgoing to see any of these little hidden pockets.

It's something that's an extra cost.

To put in a pocket takes a bit more time.

Usually, it takes a bit more material andthat cost money, so they try to streamline things.

So what I think, to answer this question, that's a good idea for a custom jacket.

If you're going to use it, if you're goingto find it useful, yes, and if the man or woman making you the clothing is skilled becausewhat you don't want to do is put a hidden pocket somewhere that actually pulls awayfrom the lines of the jacket and the way it hangs on the body.

That's my quick summary of hidden pockets.

I like them.

Oh, another hidden pocket that I love to puton my clothing is anytime anyone gets a pair of trousers made with me, I like to have ahidden pocket just right over here that you can only access from the top of the trousers.

I do this and I call it my pickpocket pocket.

In a sense, you can put a credit card anda little bit of cash in there, you tighten the belt around it and no one's going to beable to find that stuff versus they can put their hands in your pockets if you're on acrowded subway or transportation.

Anyone that's been pickpocketed knows howthat stuff goes.

All right.

Gaining & Losing Weight & Men's Clothing – Menswear Alterations & Adjustments – Style Fashion Advice

Gaining & Losing Weight & Men's Clothing – MenswearAlterations & Adjustments – Style Fashion Advice Hi, Iím Antonio Centeno.

The founder of ìReal Men, Real Styleî andtoday weíre going to be talking about weight fluctuation and how to deal with it in menísclothing.

All right, if you havenít make sure to subscribeour You Tube channel.

You can do that by clicking the button above, in addition if you enjoy this video, if you find it useful please like it below.

Itís really important to us.

Lets me know if this video is useful and ifI need to go deeper in to the subject and it makes us feel good too.

So all right, [Laughter] the question we receivedis what do you do when your weight fluctuates? Say a man starts building his wardrobe whenheís 70 kilos and then he gains a ton of weight for some reason and ends up at around90 kilos.

Naturally his clothes wouldnít fit him anymoreand therefore the investment he made when he was 70ís is rendered null until he losesthe weight.

Same goes for someone that starts off at abouta 100 kilos and goes on a diet exercise and ends up at around 70ís.

So whatís the correct protocol here? How to deal with the weight fluctuation? Okay so we threw our kilos, just double itfor pounds.

But basically what weíre seeing is a wideshift in weight loss and weight gain.

So we ñ I had a number probably once a weekI get a phone call.

Weíve had a gentleman, letís say he wasat 300 pounds.

Heís down to 220 pound or weíve got anothergentleman.

Heís you know when he was younger, footballplayer he was at 220 now heís up to you know closer to 300.

So when you have things like this, this isa huge weight fluctuation.

If you do with this in percentage weíre talkingabout 25% you know to 10%.

Anytime youíve got 10 to 25% body you knowshift one thatís dangerous.

So you know the best advice that even thoughyou know it may not apply because you canít control it is to keep your weight the same.

Now I fluctuate between 5 pounds in summerand winter.

I live in Wisconsin.

Itís hard to get outdoors when itís negative30 outside so I canít exercise this much.

But overall I try to keep my weight prettystable because I understand that itís just healthy.

But Iím sure you know this and question isAntonio I understand this, what can I do about the clothing? Well thereís a reason why custom clothiersare in business is because this is one of our best customers.

Heís the man who has gained so much weightthat his clothing will not fit him.

And this is ñ thereís three reasons, thereare three things you need to pay attention to when it comes to clothing and how you canget it adjusted.

One, is there a fabric in there? So if you gain, every plate depends on yourheight but every usually 10 to 15 pounds, youíre going to increase a size.

So if you gain 30 pounds, youíre suit jacketprobably were not two sizes and when this happens youíre going to be very limited.

Probably youíre going to need a whole anothersuit because thereís not going to be enough fabric in the jacket to open it up.

In addition there is the issue with proportions.

So you know if I were to open up the jacket.

Is it going to look proportionally right? And actually proportions happen a lot moreor the limitations of proportions whenever you get losing weight because technicallyI mean a guy could lose a 100 pounds and I could take his jacket and make it fit himbut the pockets are going to be in the wrong place.

It just not going to look right, the lapelsare going to be too large for his new body size.

There is just going to be a number of issuesthat proportionally that jacket is not going to look right and itís going to be a betterinvestment for him to buy a new jacket.

The last thing is going to be the skill ofthe tailor.

So if you live in the middle of nowhere andyou donít have access to a skilled tailor or seamstress, you may have issues.

On the other hand, if youíve got somebodywhoís got really great skills you know itíll may cost you a pretty penny but you can usuallyget them to make some really good adjustments of the jacket.

But then again there are limitations withthe clothing.

Iíve heard of men who you know throughouttheir lives they know theyíre going to gain 50 pounds, lose 50 pounds.

They actually have two sets of clothing andthey just put one in the closet.

You know again I think this is really dangerousand if thereís any doctor out there, maybe they can send me an email.

And tell me you know a little bit ñ pointme towards the research so I can send this on my clients.

But no seriously I know not everyone can controlthis.

Iím dealing more with the clothing aspectbut there are limitations.

Itís an expensive fix and you know the bestadvice is to try to you know find that weight in which itís the closest to where youíregoing to hover around and make sure your clothing fits you for their.

If youíre going to heir on anything go withclothing thatís maybe a little bit bigger because itís always easier to make clothinga bit smaller than it is to make it a bigger especially shirts.

Obviously thereís no fabric in there.

You canít make a shirt any biggerÖ Öbut again if you got a big weight fluctuation.

This is a hard fix and something that couldhave been expensive for you.

So Iíve laid out a few options of havingtwo sets of clothing, having access to a clothier.

They can adjust it but when it comes to thingslike shirts or trousers or items in which you know itís going to be less fabric inthere.

Youíre going to find it that youíre goingto have two sets.

Okay, hopefully that answered the question.

And if you enjoyed what you learned today, make sure to go to ìReal Men, Real Styleî because Iíve got tons of other you know articlesthere in addition will give away a free 47 page e-book which I think youíll really enjoy.

Take care.

Dating Advice – What Clothing Should A Man Wear For An Evening Date – Men's Style Tips

Dating Advice – What Clothing Should A ManWear For An Evening Date – Men's Style Tips Hi.

I’m Antonio Centeno, the founder ofReal Men Real Style and today, I’m going to be answering a question “What to wearon a date for Friday night?” Okay, if you haven’t already, please subscribe to ourYoutube channel by clicking on the subscribe button right up there.

In addition, if youlike this video, if you find it useful, I would appreciate it if you would click onthe like button down below and finally, I’m going to link you to an article which is goingto be useful and relevant to what we’re talking about and that’s going to be downover here.

Okay so this is a question that came in.

“Hi, Antonio.

I have a date on Friday night and I cannot decide what to wear.

The restaurantis not too fancy but above the average.

This is our first date.

I thought the sports jacket, black shoes, dark blue shirt and light cream pants combination as seen in the attachedphoto would be appropriate but a friend of mine said I should wear a light colored shirtinstead.

And another said I shouldn’t wear the sports jacket.

I’m really confused.

I hope you can help me.

Thank you.

” Okay, so this gentleman, he’s got an importantdate.

Sounds like someone he’s really wanting to impress and he’s getting conflictingadvice from everyone.

It’s really confusing because this guy, he’s trying to put togethera great outfit yet he’s hearing from one person to go another route then he hears theexact opposite from this other person and I’m sure he’s probably asked a few otherpeople not knowing if I’m going to be able to get back to him before Friday.

Well, Iam going to be able to get back to you before Friday even though I’m shooting this onthe road but what I want to – maybe I should just start this off with a story, with a parableand this is one of Aesop’s parables and it’s about the boy, the man and the donkey.

And the story goes that a boy and a man anda donkey are walking to town.

Somebody passes them and says, “Oh my gosh.

You have a perfectlygood donkey, why is this old man making this poor little boy walk?” So the old man thoughtabout it and he put the boy on the donkey.

Then the next person passing by, they seethe young boy riding the donkey with the old man walking.

They say, “Such a shame.

Thatold man, he should be on the donkey and the little boy should be leading the donkey.

”So of course, they listened to these people and they switched.

And then somebody elsesees this.

“Oh my gosh, why wouldn’t you use the donkey because you’ve got this oldman who’s just making this poor boy lead them.

” And so they thought about it and both, theboy and the old man, got on top of the donkey.

And then they had a next person as you canimagine said, “Wow, look at the way they’re treating that poor animal.

That is overloading.

It looks like it can barely stand.

” So they thought about this and then the old man andthe boy tied the donkey to a stick and they carried the donkey and as they were carryingthe donkey over the bridge, the donkey got loose somehow and the parable doesn’t havea happy ending because apparently they all fall to their deaths.

Now I don’t want you to get dressed up thisFriday and fall to your death sir but the point I’m trying to make is you’ve gotto understand what you look good in.

You have to understand your personal style becauseyou’re going to hear conflicting advice from every single person you speak with.

Everyonehas their opinions and a lot, as my step dad used to say, “They’re a lot like…”we’ll just say, “Everyone’s got one.

” Opinions but if you want mine and I have alittle bit of experience dressing men.

My first thing is you’ve got to understandwhat suits you.

You’ve got to understand what your personal style is so look at yourselfin the mirror and realize that if you’re dark complected, you have dark hair and maybeyou’re a little bit overweight, you’re going want to look thinner and leaner andso this jacket is going to work great.

But you know what? If you have the body of Adonis, you’re a young man, let’s say you’re light complected, you may find that a reallynice blue dress shirt without the jacket would be perfectly fine because you’ve got a bodywhich will work with that.

I don’t know your body type but I do knowthat you apparently need to spend some time getting to know what best compliments yourindividual style and go with that.

Also, check with your date.

Find out what she’s wearingand at least let her know that you’re going to be wearing a jacket.

A woman does not likeit when she shows up or when you show up to the door and you out dress her.

She thinksthat it’s going to be okay to wear jeans and a sweatshirt.

She isn’t known necessarilywhere you’re going.

You’re going to make a bad impression the fact that you didn’trelay this information to her that she needs to be dressed a bit better.

And another thing you could do, do some reconnaissance.

Go visit the restaurant.

I remember when I was in the dating pool.

I would actually goto the restaurant before and I would look at and see what other people are wearing.

Now, unless you’re in a major city like New York, you’re not going to probably runinto any restaurants that require a jacket but you can look at the patrons, look at thepeople that are entering and get a feel for how they dress.

When I go to Chicago, I hang out with a lotof Bulgarians, Russians, Ukrainians and I find that they dress really nice when theygo out on the weekends so look around.

Find out.

Are you going to a place that they dressa little bit more upscale? And let your date know, again.

The last thing I’ll hit on is listen butdon’t be guided what other people say.

Understand what makes you look good and go with it.

Allright, best of luck.

I’ll see you in the next video.

Bye-bye.

4 Reasons To Wear A Pocket Square – Men's Handkerchief Tips – Male Style Fashion Advice

4 Reasons To Wear A Pocket Square – Men'sHandkerchief Tips – Male Style Fashion Advice Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, I'm going to be giving you four reasonsto wear a pocket square.

If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this video, if youfind it useful, I would appreciate it if you would like it down below.

I'm also going to link you to my free 47-pagee-book and a useful article on pocket squares.

Okay, the four reasons, I'll get right tothem.

1.

It's going to help you stand out.

2.

It's going to show you to pay attention todetail.

3.

It's going to allow you to introduce a fewextra colors to your outfit.

4.

It helps dress up an outfit that otherwisemay not appear to be very dressy.

1.

Standing out This requires a bit of courage.

I think we live in a society and many of usfeel that we like to blend in.

It's like one of those things, if you thinkback to your time in high school or your time in college, who wants to be the person thatthe spotlight is on and everyone is looking at and everyone is scrutinizing? For most of us, that isn't the ideal placethat we want to be.

I mean, there are some people out there whojust die and want that spotlight, but for most people, that's not us.

For various reasons, that's just not us, buta pocket square is a small way, it's a small little detail which will draw attention.

I challenge you to go to a large city andwatch men walk by in suits and try to count how many pocket squares you see, very few, maybe 1 of out 100.

I think the last time I did that was in Londona few years back.

Yeah, in a city like London, I really thoughtI was going to see more, but it was I think maybe 1 of out of 50, 1 out of 100 men actuallywore a pocket square.

This is something that is very small, butit's something out of the ordinary and it is going to draw a bit of attention, but Ithink it's a good detail.

Now, you need to keep it muted depending onwhat industry you're in.

if you're working in an internet startup companyin San Francisco, you can wear the puff.

Wear that thing however you want.

If you're working for a more conservativebank over in New York City, then you're going to want to go for the TV fold, just that straightone which Harry Truman used to wear all the time in the presidency.

If you're down in Dallas and you're in a museum, depending on how the museum is, you've got a bit more leeway there.

What I'm getting at is that you're bringingin something that's going to help you stand out.

People are going to notice it, maybe evenask you about it, and it's just something that helps you stand out from the crowd becauseat the end of the day, we all think of ourselves as unique human beings, but when it comesdown to it, look at other people.

Oftentimes, we don't think of other peopleas all unique.

We think of them as, “Okay, everyone elseis all the same, but I'm the unique person.

” Well, by actually wearing a pocket square, you kind of help yourself to stand out a little bit different visually especially if you'reconstricted with everything else and you're having to wear a suit.

You might as well have fun with it.

2.

Details It shows that you pay attention to the detailsand the people that notice it are going to be other sharp dressed people because they'realways — if somebody spends an extra five to ten minutes every morning making sure thatthey're well put together, making sure that they pay attention to their appearance, you'regoing to pay attention to others.

It's like if you go to the gym and you workout and you take care of your body.

You notice when another guy — I mean, thathas nothing to do with your sexual preference.

It has everything to do with the fact thatyou put in the time, you put in the effort to have a good physique, and when you noticea guy who is in good shape as well, it's kind of like you're part of a club because youknow what it takes to look that way, to actually have a body that responds and has the muscledevelopment that goes into that, the same way with dressing sharp.

So you're going to start noticing women thatgo the extra mile and are very stylish.

The great part here is that if you pay attentionto these details, you can start complimenting other people on these details.

You start noticing and you start seeing them.

I don't know about you, but I want peopleon my team who pay attention to the details because it's in those details which make thedifference between a company that does okay and a company that's very successful.

3.

Color As you can see here, I'm introducing a bitof red in my pocket square.

It's something that I don't have it anywhereelse in the outfit, but this color, red, is very closely related to brown and it worksvery well and it helps to bring out just colors in my skin.

Now, that's something that a lot of you all– maybe you've got really piercing blue eyes, but you can't wear blue shirts all the timebecause blue shirts, as you've probably noticed, if you have blue eyes, will bring out youreye color.

But what you can do is bring that in the pocketsquare and allow to bring out the color there, or maybe you've got an eye color which youdon't want to wear a green shirt or a grey shirt, but you can put that in your pocketsquare and all of a sudden, you're allowing yourself to bring out other colors and makethem more noticeable.

4.

It allows you to dress up a more casual-lookingoutfit Notice I don't have a necktie on and wheneverI go to networking events, a lot of times when I'm out, I don't wear a tie.

In a number of my videos, you'll see me wearinga tie, but for most cases, I'm not wearing a necktie.

Now, does that mean that I'm any less stylishor I'm any less dressed than a guy that's just wearing a poorly fitted suit and hasa tie, a red tie with a white shirt on? I don't think so.

In fact, when I go to these networking events, people, they have to notice them wearing a pocket and that even though I'm not wearinga necktie, I'm wearing a very nice sports jacket, perhaps with a very nice pair of greyflannel trousers with well-polished shoes, so all those little details allow me to actuallytranscend and look more stylish and better dressed than perhaps somebody who's in a higher– technically, a suit is ranked higher when it comes to the level of formality than asports jacket and a pair of odd trousers, but because my stuff fits and looks and thecolors are so nice and it all works well, it actually brings me a bit higher.

Now, if I were to wear a suit with a tie andhave all the cuts and everything right, I would knock it out of the park.

Okay, so those are my four reasons for wearinga pocket square.

The big one is that you've got to get overthe mindset that, “I've never worn one in the past, ” and, “Why would I start wearingone?” Try it.

Go with the very simple, conservative foldthat's just going to be a straight — it's barely visible.

It looks like something that's just barelypeeking out of there.

Watch Mad Men.

They do it really well on that televisionshow.

See how many compliments you get.

I think go with a simple white pocket square.

That's the easiest one to start with and it'sgoing to match pretty much anything.

All right.

This has been Antonio Centeno with Real MenReal Style.

I'll see you in the next video.

9 Style Tips for the Young Man – Fashion Advice for Men Graduating University – College – School

Hi.

Iím Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

And today, Iím going to be talking aboutnine style tips for young men.

All right.

If you havenít already, make sure you subscribeto our YouTube channel.

Weíve got a lot of great videos out thereon menís style.

In addition, if you want to read the article, the link should be right below this video.

So, without further ado, let me jump in.

Okay.

What is the first style tip for the youngman? One: he needs to pay attention to his footwear.

So many young men, we get away with wearingrunning shoes all the time.

And occasionally, we have to wear a suit, and we wear a dress shoes.

But between the running shoes and dress shoes, we have no idea.

You need to learn more about good-looking, casual footwear.

Put the running shoes to the side.

And unless youíre running, put them off.

And sandals do not count.

Sandals should be over here, when you go tothe beach.

Look for, you know, casual leather shoes thatlook good.

You know, start off, you know, go ahead andgo for a rubber sole.

But, you want something thatís leather, thatlooks great with a pair of jeans and itís going to be immediately noticed.

So, go out there.

Youíre going to spend probably at least a$100.

But, update your casual footwear.

Okay.

Number two: dress like a man not like a boy.

Whatís the difference? Okay.

Boys wear T-shirts all the time.

They donít pay attention to how they look.

They just look sloppy.

They donít tuck in their shirts.

They wear running shoes with jeans.

I mean, thatís how boys in college dress.

Men understand that people are making firstimpressions every time they meet and that they need to present themselves professionally.

Men throw on a sports jacket.

Men wear colored shirts.

Men pay attention to how they look.

So, start to dress like a man.

Number three: ignore fashion.

You canít afford it.

Okay.

So, fashionówhatís in free fashion and style? Iíve talked about it in other videos.

But fashion is fleeting.

It moves all over the place.

You canít catch it.

I mean, even these female style icons or, you know, divas, they can barely stay on top of this stuff.

So, as men that really donít pay much attentionto thisóand believe me, I donít actually pay that much attention in fashion.

Style is great because you can look at yourgrandfather and you can see what worked for him.

And in fact, look at some pictures of yourgrandfather.

And youíll notice that he could actuallycome to the year 2011, walk around and actually his suit and everything unique, you wouldnítactually look half bad.

And in fact, you would be able to fit in.

Theyíre called the iron wearing [0:02:36][Phonetics].

I could wear this 15 years from now and Iímstill going to fit in.

Iím still going to look good.

This is style.

Fashion, it doesnít look good a year fromnow.

So, those Crocsóyeah, that was fashion.

Okay.

Number four: take care of your clothing.

Okay.

So, if no one has explained this to you, clothingis made from different fiber types.

And you have to treat it and you have to carefor it differently.

A suit jacket, you can never throw in a washingmachine.

That wool sweater, you cannot throw it inthe washing machine.

You have to carefully wash wools.

Now, cottons, totally different story.

You can be much more rougher with cottons.

But then, there are, you know, garments whichare a mixture and youíve got to be very careful.

Learn to read the tag.

Pay attention to the tag.

And unless you have someone there with experience, be very careful about washing your higher-end garments.

You know, your best bet is going to try tokeep everything you own cotton up until your dress clothing.

All right.

Number five: you need to own one suit.

Charcoal gray is probably going to be thesafest fabric for youóa solid charcoal gray suit.

Keep this style classic andóbut you haveto have the suit.

And donít think that youíre going to geta suit when you need one.

Because when you need one, youëre going tohave to like [0:03:59] [Phonetics] 24 hours.

And you donít want to spend that time, youknow, when all your buddies are out having a great time at theÖat the bachelor party.

Youíre out, you know, trying to track downa suit and sweating about it.

Or, if itís a big interview, you donít wantto be spending your time looking for a suit when you could be preparing for the interview.

Every man, whether he be a mechanic, whetherhe be a janitor, whether he be a banker, he needs to have one complete, great-lookingsuit that fits in properly.

Okay.

Number six: shirts.

Start off with whites and blues.

Your first five shirtsóthree whites, twoblues.

Not too dark of a blue because that makesit a bit casual to two light blues, three whitesómake sure they fit your properly.

Focus on the fit.

Make sure they fit you in the collar, theyfit you in the cuffs, have them darted in the body to remove some of that fabric.

And the great thing is that those shirts willbe interchangeable with that charcoal gray suit.

[0:05:00]Youíre going to have five outfits.

So thatís what you want.

After you have those five basic shirts, thenyou can expand off into other colors and try to experiment.

Number seven: need a dark pair of fitted jeans.

Now, these are not distressed jeans.

These are not jeans that are stone-washed.

Dark-coloredóthey almost look like, you know, very dark indigo or black.

And what youíre looking for here is somethingthat you could wear with one of the shirts.

Gives you a bit more of a casual look.

So, weíre starting to build an interchangeablewardrobe.

Number eight: expand beyond denim.

So, notice I said only, you know, have onepair of darks.

You can have two pairs of darks.

You can have three pairs of darks.

But, no matter how many pairs of dark jeansyou have, you need to have something else besides jeans, you know, when it comes totrousers or pants.

So, look to incorporate khakis.

Wool flannel trousers are great.

Theyíre not this, you know, so wool flanneltrousers, theyíre not the same as suit trousers.

Theyíre something different.

Khakis have various styles.

Look to have something else besides denim.

All right.

Number nine: donít always wear a t-shirt.

Look to wear a shirt with a collar.

If youíre wearing t-shirts six to seven daysout of the week, we have a problem.

Incorporate polo shirts.

Take out some sport, you know, some dressshirts or there are some work shirts or sports shirts, something with a collar.

Thatís what you want.

Thatís how a man dresses.

I mean, a collared shirt just looks so muchbetter.

And pay attention to the fit.

Okay.

Those are my nine quick tips for the youngman.

Men's Clothing & Color – What To Do When You Don't Like The Colours That Suit Your Complexion

Men's Clothing & Color – What To Do When YouDon't Like The Colours That Suit Your Complexion Hi, I'm Antonio Sentinel, the founder of RealMen Real Style, today I'm going to be talking about what do you do when you don’t likethe colors that naturally suits you? Okay if you have it already please subscribeto YouTube channel; by doing that these videos will come right to you.

In addition if you like this, if you findit useful, I would appreciate it if you click the like button right below and I'm also goingto link you to our free 47 page e-book, so if you want that delivered right to your emailgo ahead and grab it right over there.

Okay the question that came in.

“I'm a low contrast, pale skinned, blonde-brownishhair individual, yet I hate earthy tones.

It’s a strong word.

Brown and green evoke images of rot, mold, and decay to my mind.

” He obviously does not like his colors.

“Okay, I like black, grey, white, dark purple, red bull blue, and reds.

How do I make my color preferences work forme?” Okay, so I think the simple answer here isthat yes, we do all have colors that compliment how we look but it’s really there’s – oftentimes we think that and I think this gentleman, his not looking at everything that complimentshim.

So he needs to find something that can behis canvass.

Something that – because the colors thathe really likes and he’s drawn to are little bit too harsh for his natural complexion, although I would have to look at pictures of him and maybe look at it close, he couldprobably still pull off a few of those but some of them don’t sound exactly right forhim but the mistake his making is he’s thinking that this have to be the dominant colors hewears.

Instead what he’s looked to do is to havea nice canvass of simple colors, maybe lighter, once that don’t compete with his facialcontrast because he’s normally going to be over powered if you, if he wears blackand white.

But if he actually goes for something thatcompliments his complexion a bit more, let’s say something – I know he doesn’t likeany of the earthy tones but they’re going to be ones that are a bit further from that, that he could go with and what he should do then is bring in I think it was red bull blueand the red and so those type of colors, he can bring them into accessory pieces and thinkof it like spice.

So whenever you go and cook – a novice mistakethat I made when I first started cooking is I thought more spice is going to equal betterfood.

It makes sense right? Spices are good, so throw in more spice andwhat would happen it was over power the food that I'm trying to eat, it just didn’t tastegreat.

A chef understands that you put in the rightspices at the right time and they pull out the natural flavors.

And that’s what this gentleman needs tobe thinking, how can you create and throw on a canvass with simple clothing and accentuateit with the colors he really loves.

So you should look at pocket squares and neckties, add a little accessories which would bring in the color and that would be, I wouldthink initially starting off if you were to design your own clothing or go to a customclothier.

He could actually bring in little bits, sohe could go actually go with the very muted jacket that actually has, perhaps a brightercolor sawn into it and it doesn’t really come out unless he’s wearing an accessorywhich brings out those colors.

The same could be for, perhaps he wants towear a very muted canvass on most of his body but he wants to go for a bit more of eccentricshoes and some and pull out the colors he likes right there.

So there are ways of bringing this into theirwardrobe even if you don’t like – what most people will tell you are the correctcolors.

Now I'm working on the coloring and stylesystem that’s going to be available here at the end of 2011 and if you’re watchingthis video when it’s already in that late period you’re probably are going to havea link to it right below but let me tell you that color is really hard on the webinar, probably have to see images of this guy to give me exact advice but the key point totake from this is that, if you don’t like the colors which most people are saying, lookgreat on you.

Then find the colors you do like and use thoseas your canvass colors and then the colors that you really enjoy which people say aren’tgoing to work for you.

Well, look to accentuate your outfit likea spice.

A little bit here, a little bit there andyou’re going to be surprise how people are going to focus on those little focus pointswhich you put.

Okay hopefully that gave you a little bitof useful information.

This has been Antonio Sentinel with Real MenReal Style; I’ll see you in the next video.

Take care.

Ironically enough at the ah weddingchapel in Planet Hollywood.

The information that Chez has to give us is awesome becauseeveryone from around the world is able to go to Las Vegas and go to like the best nightclub and get really dressed up andbe fabulous.

Where not everybody necessarily on a Red Carpet or can go to Los Angeles togo to a nightclub.

But here in Vegas everyone can come and Im sure everybody wan ts to get into the hottest nightclubs.

Wellluckily we have someone we have Chez with us and he does work all of the hottest nightclubsin Las Vegas.

So he knows his stuff.

Chez you consider yourself to be a VIP promotionalhost correct.

Thats correct yea h.

Can you kinda share with us how that works for you.

My job is to basically walk aroundprofile individuals and groups of people who are ah prospects to go inside and are dressedin the right attire and hopefully arent too tipsy.

Haha thats true.

Becauset hen they wont let you in.

Basically I profilepeople for our nightclubs.

I actually met Chez one night where I was in LA I went toa red carpet I flew on a plane came here and I was walking around a casino like all dolledup and he approached me he was li ke hey do you wanna you know now go into this club and I was like Oh I dont know you know.

Hes no really Ill hook you up.

Im ok and I ended up going in.

Long story short we becamereally good friends and now whenever I come to Vegas hes a great friend to ha ve for helping me get into cool clubs thatyou know.

Thats right.

normal people cant really get into.

You know a lot about mensfashion when it comes to club promotion because obviously you are dressed really nicely wheneverI see you.

And you are like yo usaid you profile people.

Of course our show is about looking good and fashion and allthat kinda fun stuff.

So from a mens point of view what kind of tips and tricks can yougive for ah going into clubs and stuff for a guy.

In Las Vegas basically theresf or the guys theres more dos and donts forguys.

Women have better fashion than then ah men do.

So its usually never have any issueswith women getting them into the club pretty much no matter what they are wearing.

Itsmore of a dos and donts for guys.

Li ke the donts basically the tan hide boots white shoes any kind of like cargo pants or shortsand then just like plain collared tshirt um tees.

Basically you dont wear any combinationof that whatsoever.

Even if youre just like wearing jeans and a white and a white tee youre not guaranteed to get in.

Itskey for men especially with mens fashion because obviously thats what were all about on theshow is um you know to just dress nice you know just really honestly present yourselfin a really nice manner.

Dont come in looking like you know a thug.

Like youre just off the couch.

Rolled off the couchoff the street exactly.

Basically men have two options you wear you wear designer jeansor you wear like dress slacks and then obviously you wear like nice shoes looki ng polished hopefully.

You know not too manyscruffs Im just kidding.

Ha Ha Sports jackets you dont have to wear a tie all the time.

If you do end up wearing a sports jacket its nice to wear the 70s style with the collarsthat are out and then your cuffli nks that are clipped up.

One of the styles that are coming back is like its like theretro paisley if its done in good taste but it doesnt look like it came from the 70s butits more like our style.

Its dressy and classy without having to be like in a suit and tie you know in all of type.

Thats basicallythe minimum of what you can what you need to wear in order to get into a club properlywithout having any issues or getting hungup or getting sent to the back of the line.

HaHa.

So to speak.

Do you see tha ta lot of men do maybe perhaps show up in suits and ties or wear kind of how does that work.

Not very many suits and ties mostly if you go to like a 5 star lounge type of place.

They do because they specialize most mostly in like bottle service.

You go to the nightclubs unless theres a big conventionor venue out you dont see a lot of people wearing suits and ties.

Theyre mostly theyvegot their theyve got the jackets off you know the ties are a little bit unloose you knowwhat I mean.

So its kind of more alaid back type of environment and its not really necessary if youre going to a nightclubyou know plus it gets hot in there and So Its best just to be relaxed with your attireand um not having to wear your jacket plus still looking good at the same time.

And ties you know shirts you know suits andties without the jacket is perfect as well.

And its interesting because everything thatChez is sharing um it its the same way for the red carpets.

You know there are some redcarpets where men have to show up wearing a suit and tie thats just thats just the way it is.

Its like you just expect it.

But then theres other ones where just exactly what youre saying maybe just the just kindaloose tie or kinda this look or that look.

Sometimes you can wear designer jea ns but you dont want the jeans to look reallybad you know its very similar with mens fashion on the red carpet also.

And thats really interestingactually kind of kinda goes over goes over everything.

The thing to remember as a malecoming into like a h ot hot Las Vegas nightclub is um coming up to a host or knowing a host and and reallyhaving that relationship.

Having the host walk you to the door and you were mentioningah tipping the host.

The key in Vegas is its most important to have a host take you to a club.

Most of the time it gets you tothe front of the line depending on what kind of venues youre going on.

Youre either goingto pay to get into a club or youre not gonna pay to get into a club.

Heh heh yes basicallyyou need to find yourself a hos tin Vegas and always tip your host.

Depending on who youre talking to a lot of us work oncommission and tips and then some people are on salary but generally everybody acceptsa good tip.

Course you want to get into other nightclubs if you just go into on e nightclub for the evening you can alwaysgo back and ask your host if they can put you on a list for another 4 or 5 star nightclubdown the street maybe for the next day or for the next night.

Then basically youve gotsomeone on speed dial you can call up for all of your needs.

If you do show up and you do look really good and lets say perhapsyou dont have a host a host will actually find you.

Whereas if you come and you lookkinda sloppy and youre walking around youre gonna end up waiting in line for th ree hours to get into a hot club and thenyoure gonna have to pay a ton of money to get in.

So thats another reason why lets saymaybe you dont have the best fashion sense it might pay to go out and buy something beforeyou go to a really really nice Las Vegas club just so you can meet someone like Chez who will pick you out and say Hey doyou want to come in.

And so do you have any additional comments or anything else thatyou want to share with our viewers.

The key for gentlemen if youve just got a big gro up of guys your best bet honestly is to buya bottle service because then you get your own spot and thats easier for you to havemore for them to have more fun in the club if you heh heh.

If you do wanna pick up onthe ladies if you have a table with bott le service.

Exactly.

Hint Hint.

Exactly.

And if you dont do a bottle service usually youhave to pay to get into the nightclub.

So even if youre on the guest list there stillmay they still might charge you to get on the guest list.

But if you come with a1 to 1 ratio or like a 1 to 3 ratio you know2 guys 6 girls or you know 2 and 2 then its easier to be on the guest list and not haveto pay to get in and then even so once youre on a guest list you still need to find a hostthats around the area so you get treated properly and when you get to the frontdoor and theyll explain to you all the dos and donts for the club and while youre waitingin line.

And then obviously when it comes to women and Im sure Chez youll probably agreewith this the sexier the bett er.

I mean when youre gonna go to a Las Vegas club just go all out have fun wear your bestdress.

Put on your most popular fabulous jewelry and do your hair and makeup.

Why not yourein Las Vegas.

So as long as you look great not only will people like Chez be able to pick you out and be like hey doyou want to come into this club VIP for free.

But also youre gonna have fun guys are gonnacheck you out.

Its gonna be a lot of great times.

So just do your best and really takethe time to get ready before you g oto a Las Vegas club especially if its a 4 or 5 star one.

My name is Kristin McCoy withRed Carpet Fashionistas coming to you live from Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas at theWedding Chapel and uh Chez since were here.

Yes.

Um do you ah do you have any should we get married.

I mean were here right itis Vegas.

Remember were not supposed to walk up there.

Oh yeah thats true Supposed we cantactually go up there.

Well maybe next time maybe next time so again thanks for tuningin and thank you so much Chez for t he interview I really appreciate it.

Havea great one.

How to Wash & Clean Cotton Mens Dress Shirts – Male Clothing | Style Advice | Fashion Tips

How to Wash & Clean Cotton Mens Dress Shirts- Male Clothing _ Style Advice _ Fashion Tips Hi.

My name is Antonio Centeno.

Iím the founder of Real Men Real Style.

Today, I'm going to be talking about how totake care of your cotton shirt.

If you havenít yet, make sure to subscribeour YouTube channel and these videos will come right to your inbox.

In addition, if you enjoy this video, pleaselike I below.

It makes me feel better and it actually letsus know what videos people really like, which ones they donít so much and it allows usto make more videos that you do like.

So, weíll be able to give you a better content.

Okay.

Iím going to jump right to the question.

And this has to do with cotton dress shirtsbecause the gentlemen asks no matter how good the quality of the material is, any shirtwill have some wear and tear after several wash cycles.

And the same goes for any machine washableclothing.

How do you deal with this? Many the materials that youíre talking aboutis so high and it doesnít noticeably deteriorate over the years.

But it had yet defined something like this.

Okay.

The gentlemen is referring to probably anearlier video in which I talk about buying quality dress shirts and how those are goingto continue to look good overtime.

Now, if you watch my video, youíll notice, actually, I wear ñ thereís a few dress shirts which I keep here in the studio, which I alwaysthrow one and wear in most of my videos.

These are some of my favorite dress shirts.

And I have literally had these things forñ well, this dress shirt I have for six years, and it still looks great.

Now, there are steps I go to to make surethat it still looks great after six years.

But I can tell you in a six-year period, Iprobably worn this dress shirt a hundred times; if not, more.

And so, youíre probably asking, ìOkay, Antonio, if youíve got a hundred wears, if not, more out of this dress shirt, how do you keep itin shape?î Well, first off, you do need to buy quality.

And the reason you want to buy quality isbecause simply itís going to hold at better.

Itís the difference between buying and, youknow, there are ñ you know, Ford is a great company but there is a difference betweenFord quality and BMW quality.

Ford makes automobiles.

BMW ñ well, their trucks are pretty good.

But their cars, well, you know, there areacronyms for what ñ Iím guess Iím a Chevy man, so I can ñ Chevy truck so I can ñ silverauto in particular.

But in any case, I donít want to vouch forit, but I will say that BMW makes amazing driving machines.

Notice I didnít say ñ I mean, theyíre bigabout, ìHey, these are driving machines aimed towards perfection.

î I see people driving, you know, 25, 30-year old BMWs and those things are still holding up wonderfully.

They look beautiful.

I mean, it was a big difference in qualityhere, from the parts to the craftsmanship, to every little part.

And the same goes in the quality shirt, thatíshand-sewn, thatís individually stitched.

All of those details, youíve got to pay attentionto and youíll notice.

So, make sure you go with quality, materialsof quality shirt.

The other thing is wash it less, this soundssimple but just because you wear a shirt for an hour or you wear it for a couple of hoursdoesnít mean itís dirty and it doesnít mean you have to throw it in the hamper.

So, look at the shirt.

Unless itís dirty, donít wash it so youcan oftentimes wear a shirt.

And letís say youíre only going to wearit for a few hours, wear it for a few hours here, a few hours there.

Well, you make a three or four small wearsout of it, you know.

And Iím not saying if youíre going to bewearing this thing for 12 or 16 hours, sweating in it riding in an airplane, you know, friendsor people around you are smoking, of course, youíre going to want to wash this shirt.

Itís not all the time that we put a shirtthrough a full dayís wear.

So if you donít do that, look at the shirt, hang it up and let it air out and then wear it again.

Usually where a shirt gets dirty is goingto be around the cuff and on the inside of the collar.

Those are the areas where they most oftenget dirty and where you need to pay attention and then ñ so this leads to the second part, youíre not washing it often.

And when you do wash it, youíre going topay attention to where itís dirty and really concentrate your cleaning efforts there.

Maybe have some spray, cleaners, some stainremover.

Use less detergent and use, you know, if youcanít hand wash the shirt.

Now, I say hand washing I know most of youare not going to do it.

So when you wash it in the machine, wash iton gentle.

You donít have to run that thing throughpermanent press.

And if youíve got a newer machine, especiallywhen itís front loading, itís going to be a lot gentler on it than if you put it intoone thatís got ñ uses that, I donít know, I forgot what itís called, that big tumblerthing that twists and uses a little bit of, you know, physical force on it.

You ñ the less ñ the gentler you can bewith the shirt in the machine washing process, the longer itís going to last.

And it would sound obvious, but most of usdonít think about it because weíve already got a system in place or weíre lazy.

The last part is drying the shirt.

Let it hang dry.

Let it ñ put it out to dry.

If youíre going to use the hanger, use aplastic hanger or use something thatís got a little bit of support.

Donít use wire hangers or just lay it outand let it dry.

What you donít want to do is put it intoa dryer and leave it there for 50 or 60 minutes.

And youíre going to end up pulling all themoisture out of it.

And you know that lens in the dryer, wheredo you think that comes from- itís pulled from the shirt? So, dryers, especially if you leave the clothingin there for a prolonged period.

Theyíre doing nothing but really destroyingthe clothing.

Theyíre going to cost it to also.

That extreme hit causes the cotton fibersto change shape and, you know ñ thatís maybe good if you need the shirt quickly and youwant to throw it in the dryer just to get rid of some of the wrinkles, go for it.

But a better option would be to give yourselfa little bit more time, pull it out when tís moist and iron it while itís moist.

Now, some of this may require change yourhabits, but those are the best options in my opinion to make sure your cotton dry shirtlast longer.

Okay.

Mens Style Tip – How To Save Time By Quickly Browsing Men's Fashion Magazines For Clothing Ideas

Men's Style Tip – How To Save Time By QuicklyBrowsing Men's Fashion Magazines For Clothing Ideas Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, I'm going to be teaching you how toproperly browse through men's style magazines.

If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you enjoy it, if you findthis one useful, I would appreciate it if you would like it down below.

And please grab my free 47-page e-book.

I don't know why I say “please” because it'sfree and it's great and it's awesome, and I think you're going to enjoy it.

Okay, this wasn’t a question that came in, but it was something I was thinking about because I got a lot of magazines and I dothat because they're really cheap and I find that usually I can grab at least one ideafrom each magazine.

So to me, it makes a lot of sense.

I get each of these magazines for about adollar, sometimes quite a bit less.

They come right to me and I can browse throughthem, and these are literally some of the smartest guys when it comes to men's stylewho are curating all this content, presenting it to me, and I have the ability just to gothrough it very quickly and grab some awesome ideas, but I think most men don't do this.

I think most men just read through it, finda few things that they like, or they put it on a shelf and they get this huge stack thatbuilds up over the year and then they end up canceling their subscription after a whilebecause they realize, “Well, I've got 24 of them sitting up on my desk or more than that, and I've never even read through them.

” It's just too daunting.

It's just this big stack.

So I want to teach you what I do, and it'spretty simple, in order to get through these things quickly and to make sure to grab theideas, and that's the big thing because one idea in one of these magazines, one picture, one illustration, one article can really affect your style and I think it's worth you actuallygetting these and trying to incorporate that.

It's also a nice reminder every month gettingthese magazines and it reminds you not to go out because some of them try to push youto go out and spend $5000 to $10, 000 on a single piece of clothing, but it gives youan idea of what's going on.

And again, the big thing is you've got theseeditors who are bringing all this content to you and presenting it to you to look at.

So here's a copy of Esquire that's an olderone, but you see Ryan Gosling on the front.

This is actually a very interesting cover.

So what I usually do is I'll take my iPhone.

I set a timer on it, around two minutes, andI have two minutes to go through this magazine and find everything that I think is worthkeeping and tear it out.

I'm not going to do this right in front ofyou because I just don't have a table to put it on.

It's kind of a game.

I'm going to make it through this entire magazinein two minutes and tear out everything that is of value.

So I will quickly zip through it.

I look at the commercials because I will occasionallysee a picture of a guy that — well, this one, he's got a really nice jacket, so boom, I've torn it out and I am going to keep that one.

Now, I would go through the entire magazineand do that very quickly.

Of course, you can cheat.

Two minutes works for me.

I find it actually as a bit challenging, butwhat it forces you to do is make a snap decision of you looking at something and deciding, “Do I like it or do I not?” tear it out and once you've got all of those– and usually maybe 10 pages, maybe 15 pages I'll pull out of a single magazine, sometimesarticles I want to read, not too often articles I want to read, but usually it's about somethingI see that's inspirational.

And then what I'll do is I then can take thatand take action on it because so many times, we get all these magazines and we never takeaction on anything that's presented to us, so just ideas of what I do.

I'll sometimes see a manufacturer I've neverheard of or some new up and coming person or a great article, and then I'll go do researchonline.

I'll perhaps take the content into the bathroomand read it when I've got a little bit of time there.

What else? I've got a book that I'm putting together.

I'm not talking a book.

It's more of like just a folder where I throwin inspirational items.

I find since I'm only keeping 15 pages versus100 pages, after a few months when I — occasionally, you've got those afternoons or you've gotthose evenings in which you're just looking for something to do.

I can grab my inspiration book of all thosethings I've torn out and I can just go through it and be inspired, and every page inspireme versus oftentimes only 10% of those magazines really I'm drawn to.

That is my tip to you.

Hopefully you find it useful.

I think a lot of you guys, if you're likeme, you probably have just huge stacks of those magazines out there and you need toget rid of them, you need to clear out space.

I find this really helps me.

And again, the big point is if you can takeone idea, that can be life-changing in terms of your style and there are some other stuffout there.

I do this with other magazines.

It's not just men's style, so I get NationalGeographic Traveler, Fast Company.

I like those ones.

They've got some pretty cool stuff in therethat appeals to me, but again, I like to just go through it very quickly, see what inspiresme, grab it, tear it out because rarely will I ever pull one of these magazines off theshelf.

The Best Website for Men's Clothing Deals? Dappered.com Wins Hands Down! – Video Blog Review

The Best Website for Men's Clothing Deals_Dappered.

com Wins Hands Down! – Video Blog Review Hi, this is Antonio Centeno over at “RealMen, Real Style” and today I’m going to be doing a video review of dappered.

com.

Dappered has been around for about a yearand a half and is run by Joe Weber and he first came on my calendar when he did someguest posting over the art of manliness at primer and at the effortless gent.

And I’ve seen Joe positioned this websiteas they go to place on the web for finding great deals on men’s wear.

And I think he – you know I like his philosophy.

Fashion is temporary and expensive.

Style is timeless and affordable and it seemslike he positioned dappered to be the go to site not just about information because there’sa lot of the sites out there.

But Joe focuses on bringing to your attentionthe best deals.

And these are deals that may only be aroundfor 24 hours or be around for you know or coming up here in the next month.

But he really wants to be the place whereyou come and you know okay here’s an up and coming deal and he brings it right toyour attention.

And I can – this is probably one of thebetter ones because I like how whenever he does comparisons of clothing, he updates veryquickly if the price is changed as we can see here the price has gone up by $76 or $75.

And he brings those updates right throughand you could see he’s already had two updates.

These articles like a couple days old andI actually know he did these updates probably within the first day.

Another powerful thing about dappered.

comis Joe is really cultivated in the community and so you can see we got 35 comments.

He comes in here and add some comments buthe’s got a number of men who come in here and he make it even strong because these otherguys are out there looking for deals and bring to other people’s attention other dealswhich Joe might not have noticed.

Now he also isn’t afraid to jump in andprovide us with information.

I like the way Joe does it.

So he talks about a new movie called “Drive”and the star Ryan Gosling.

Very sharp dressed man, you’ll see him onthe cover of GQ and Esquire but Ryan he says how can – you know we take Ryan’s lookand imitate it.

And so he goes piece by piece from the watchto looks like the Levi’s slim fit trucker jean jacket to the shirt to the trousers tothe jeans to the sunglasses down to the boots and the gloves.

So if you want to be – understand how toput together outfits, this is now also a great site and what I really love is he links youright to the websites where you can pick up the item if you so chose and he gives theprice.

Now I went through this article quickly andI love it because I didn’t really hit about one thing Joe does is he gives you sometimesmultiple options.

And he says okay you can get this jacket overto the left for $285 or this one here to the right for $225 and this is going to be thedifference in what you are getting.

Another thing, Joe doesn’t just stop atclothing.

He gets in to drink.

He talks about grooming, shoes.

Here he’ll talk about travel and bags.

Again he’s got certain codes that you caneven use and save on and get a discount.

The normal price, the sale price and againthe powerful thing is you can look in the comments and people will let you know whichcoupon codes works, which ones are expired.

Perhaps where you can even find a better deal.

Here he is talking about drink.

Follows – on the drinks he doesn’t necessarilyfollow the same formula.

This is more information on the most wanted.

This is where he starts playing with listand you can see here in September of this year he is basically saying okay here arethe five most wanted items for the last few months.

And so this is if you’re a bit short ontime, you can just go follow Joe’s advice.

Now here we can see – Joe’s actually probablythe model in here and the great thing is okay you may be asking okay here’s Joe.

I see him.

I see how this fits.

What size – what I love is that Joe is actuallygiven us his measurements.

And so probably more measurements than whatwe needed there Joe but are appreciated.

And so we get an idea of how his built andhow the clothing fits him.

Another thing I love about dappered.

com isthat this little column that they have about ask a woman.

And Joe brings in Beth, an old friend of hisand Beth goes in to detail and gives us the female perspective on commonly asked questions.

Now it’s broken up in a category so accessories, clothing, drink, grooming, shoes… …too expensive travel, watches, women, etcetera.

This is one of the – I think the weak pointsabout dappered.

com is that some of these – a lot overlapped.

So if you go through one category, you’regoing to see the same article that you perhaps on another category.

But it’s things like this that kind of justmake up for.

I love his ridiculous model captions and thisis where he gets the people involved in on how Joe’s has developed such a strong community.

You can see obviously that’s a ridiculouspicture and he asked people to come in chimes.

You know give their take on what the captionshould have been.

Some of them I can’t repeat but you see26 people jumped in there.

So and finally he’s got a threat or whathe would call an up to date form without a bunch of snobs in it.

So this is something – it’s a lot smallerand more intimate the way you are going to see over at style form or ask Andy.

And you may not get an immediate responsebut you can get a pretty quick response.

Looks like most people are getting repliesto and you can see that it’s pretty active again.

Not super active but then again I know hejust started this and he’s got over — almost 300 topics just under 2, 000 post.

Dappered also got a Facebook page.

Another way to engage the audiences, stayup to date if you don’t want.

He also got an email list which you can gettherefore you get email sent right to you and he’s on Twitter.

So Joe has made it really easy to stay intouch and just staying on top of deals and if you’re the kind of guy looking for deals, I highly advise you either get on the email list.

Get on the RSS, feeder or just like them overat Facebook.

All right, well that’s my review of Dappered.

I gave it a two thumbs up.

A great website and I see a lot of positivethings in dappered.

com’s future.

Take care.

How to Wash & Clean Cotton Mens Dress Shirts – Male Clothing | Style Advice | Fashion Tips

How to Wash & Clean Cotton Mens Dress Shirts- Male Clothing _ Style Advice _ Fashion Tips Hi.

My name is Antonio Centeno.

Iím the founder of Real Men Real Style.

Today, I'm going to be talking about how totake care of your cotton shirt.

If you havenít yet, make sure to subscribeour YouTube channel and these videos will come right to your inbox.

In addition, if you enjoy this video, pleaselike I below.

It makes me feel better and it actually letsus know what videos people really like, which ones they donít so much and it allows usto make more videos that you do like.

So, weíll be able to give you a better content.

Okay.

Iím going to jump right to the question.

And this has to do with cotton dress shirtsbecause the gentlemen asks no matter how good the quality of the material is, any shirtwill have some wear and tear after several wash cycles.

And the same goes for any machine washableclothing.

How do you deal with this? Many the materials that youíre talking aboutis so high and it doesnít noticeably deteriorate over the years.

But it had yet defined something like this.

Okay.

The gentlemen is referring to probably anearlier video in which I talk about buying quality dress shirts and how those are goingto continue to look good overtime.

Now, if you watch my video, youíll notice, actually, I wear ñ thereís a few dress shirts which I keep here in the studio, which I alwaysthrow one and wear in most of my videos.

These are some of my favorite dress shirts.

And I have literally had these things forñ well, this dress shirt I have for six years, and it still looks great.

Now, there are steps I go to to make surethat it still looks great after six years.

But I can tell you in a six-year period, Iprobably worn this dress shirt a hundred times; if not, more.

And so, youíre probably asking, ìOkay, Antonio, if youíve got a hundred wears, if not, more out of this dress shirt, how do you keep itin shape?î Well, first off, you do need to buy quality.

And the reason you want to buy quality isbecause simply itís going to hold at better.

Itís the difference between buying and, youknow, there are ñ you know, Ford is a great company but there is a difference betweenFord quality and BMW quality.

Ford makes automobiles.

BMW ñ well, their trucks are pretty good.

But their cars, well, you know, there areacronyms for what ñ Iím guess Iím a Chevy man, so I can ñ Chevy truck so I can ñ silverauto in particular.

But in any case, I donít want to vouch forit, but I will say that BMW makes amazing driving machines.

Notice I didnít say ñ I mean, theyíre bigabout, ìHey, these are driving machines aimed towards perfection.

î I see people driving, you know, 25, 30-year old BMWs and those things are still holding up wonderfully.

They look beautiful.

I mean, it was a big difference in qualityhere, from the parts to the craftsmanship, to every little part.

And the same goes in the quality shirt, thatíshand-sewn, thatís individually stitched.

All of those details, youíve got to pay attentionto and youíll notice.

So, make sure you go with quality, materialsof quality shirt.

The other thing is wash it less, this soundssimple but just because you wear a shirt for an hour or you wear it for a couple of hoursdoesnít mean itís dirty and it doesnít mean you have to throw it in the hamper.

So, look at the shirt.

Unless itís dirty, donít wash it so youcan oftentimes wear a shirt.

And letís say youíre only going to wearit for a few hours, wear it for a few hours here, a few hours there.

Well, you make a three or four small wearsout of it, you know.

And Iím not saying if youíre going to bewearing this thing for 12 or 16 hours, sweating in it riding in an airplane, you know, friendsor people around you are smoking, of course, youíre going to want to wash this shirt.

Itís not all the time that we put a shirtthrough a full dayís wear.

So if you donít do that, look at the shirt, hang it up and let it air out and then wear it again.

Usually where a shirt gets dirty is goingto be around the cuff and on the inside of the collar.

Those are the areas where they most oftenget dirty and where you need to pay attention and then ñ so this leads to the second part, youíre not washing it often.

And when you do wash it, youíre going topay attention to where itís dirty and really concentrate your cleaning efforts there.

Maybe have some spray, cleaners, some stainremover.

Use less detergent and use, you know, if youcanít hand wash the shirt.

Now, I say hand washing I know most of youare not going to do it.

So when you wash it in the machine, wash iton gentle.

You donít have to run that thing throughpermanent press.

And if youíve got a newer machine, especiallywhen itís front loading, itís going to be a lot gentler on it than if you put it intoone thatís got ñ uses that, I donít know, I forgot what itís called, that big tumblerthing that twists and uses a little bit of, you know, physical force on it.

You ñ the less ñ the gentler you can bewith the shirt in the machine washing process, the longer itís going to last.

And it would sound obvious, but most of usdonít think about it because weíve already got a system in place or weíre lazy.

The last part is drying the shirt.

Let it hang dry.

Let it ñ put it out to dry.

If youíre going to use the hanger, use aplastic hanger or use something thatís got a little bit of support.

Donít use wire hangers or just lay it outand let it dry.

What you donít want to do is put it intoa dryer and leave it there for 50 or 60 minutes.

And youíre going to end up pulling all themoisture out of it.

And you know that lens in the dryer, wheredo you think that comes from- itís pulled from the shirt? So, dryers, especially if you leave the clothingin there for a prolonged period.

Theyíre doing nothing but really destroyingthe clothing.

Theyíre going to cost it to also.

That extreme hit causes the cotton fibersto change shape and, you know ñ thatís maybe good if you need the shirt quickly and youwant to throw it in the dryer just to get rid of some of the wrinkles, go for it.

But a better option would be to give yourselfa little bit more time, pull it out when tís moist and iron it while itís moist.

Now, some of this may require change yourhabits, but those are the best options in my opinion to make sure your cotton dry shirtlast longer.

Okay.

How To Wear A Tuxedo – Black Tie Style Tips – Men's Formal Clothing Advice – Tux Fashion Help

How To Wear A Tuxedo – Black Tie Style Tips- Men's Formal Clothing Advice – Tux Fashion Help Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, I'm going to be going over black tiebasics, how to wear a tuxedo.

If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this video, if youfind it useful, I would appreciate it if you would like it down below.

I'm also going to link you to a great articleon black tie and expand in great detail about what we're talking about here, and there'salso a link down there to our free 47-page e-book.

Grab it, a lot of great info in there.

Okay, let's talk about black tie.

So the problems out there with black tie aretwofold.

One, we don't wear it very often as men.

There was a time when there were — well, probably not a huge amount of the population, but the gentlemen, black tie was evening wearor something that you transitioned into because usually during the day, you're around horsesand you smelt like — well, you smelt like animals.

You came in and you cleaned up and it wasa dinner outfit.

It was something that you put on to wear todinner.

Even men who had more humble origins, theywould clean up for dinner.

That was a pretty big deal.

Lunch, you would oftentimes — maybe it wasn’tas big, but dinner, you're at home and home was treated as a very — I think for a lotof men, it was a lot of hard work then, and home was treated as a sacred place.

What has happened though is that we wear blacktie much less often than we did even in higher levels of society.

Even though many of us have much greater meansthan our grandfathers or our great grandfathers had, when it comes to black ties, it's justnot something we're familiar with.

So in a man's lifetime, he's maybe going towear a black tie a few times, maybe a handful of times, so the lack of wearing it.

The other problem is that the industry ingeneral has really bastardized — I don't know how else to say this, but they've takenblack tie and they have really taken it in the wrong direction.

I think it was in 1970s that we saw a lotof the rental industry start to bring in a lot of bright colors and tried to grow thatindustry by bringing it into weddings.

Black tie, technically, is evening wear.

So if you're wearing a tuxedo during the dayat a wedding, it's actually technically wrong, but that's a whole another discussion.

The point is that if you go to rent something, you have some type of uniform pushed on you, which is nothing like traditional, classicblack tie.

Okay, so what are the bright spots? What are the good things? Well, the best part is that black tie is aset of rules that if you follow these rules that have been developed over a hundred years, you can pretty much be guaranteed you're going to look good because the best part about blacktie by following these rules is you're going to use a system of lines and silhouette thathas been perfected over a very long period of time.

So you've got two colors, maybe a third oneif you want to bring in a little bit of red pocket square or go with a little bit of awaistcoat that stands out a little bit, but really, you focus on those rules and you'regoing to be guaranteed to look good.

The other thing is that the internet has madeit easier to find resources.

It used to have been that you had to go geta certain book and do a little bit of research and make sure that you have the right book.

Nowadays, there are websites like The BlackTie Guide, my website over at A Tailored Suit, and there are a few other ones out there thatI'll point you to, but really when it comes down to it, you have a lot more resourcesthat you can follow the step by step instructions laid out.

What are those step by step instructions? Okay, I'm going to start with the fabric ofyour tuxedo.

Keep it black.

Now, you can introduce midnight navy.

It's perfectly fine, but I'm assuming thatif you're watching this video, you don't know a whole lot about black tie and tuxedos.

Just go with black.

It's going to be simple and you'll be veryhappy with — that's really what you want.

Any other color, do not go with except, likeI said, midnight navy.

But again, if you're into that, you're a littlebit more advanced.

Once you move from the fabric, let's lookat the jacket.

Make sure to go with peak or shawl lapels.

Do not go with the notch lapels.

Every time I see a tuxedo with notch lapels, it's just not right because notch lapels are a bit more casual.

Peak lapels, shawl lapels, those are specificfor the formal nature of black tie.

The other thing you want to pay attentionto is going to be the vents, so you want to go with no vent if possible.

Double vent is going to be your second choice.

After that, single vent if that's the onlything you can find, but I would say be careful because there are probably going to be otherthings, other issues you may have with the jacket if it's single vent.

The other thing you want to look at is goingto be the pockets.

Make sure that they can be tucked in.

Basically, jutted pockets are what we callthem.

Make sure it's seamless over at the pocket.

Make sure that it's not gaping open.

The other thing is you want to make sure thatit's got a bit of satin on the lapel.

So right here, there should be a satin.

It should be a bit reflective.

You'll see a grosgrain as well, but eitherof those is fine.

You just want to see a bit of reflection there.

Occasionally, I will make a custom-made tuxedothat is plain black that the latest James Bond movie we saw Daniel Craig on — I thinknot latest — Casino Royale.

He had a very black, plain.

I think that looks fine as well.

It's not 100% classic, but you're allowedto change up one thing, I'd say, in black tie.

And so, for that client, I thought that wasa pretty good move.

The other thing with the jacket is pay attentionto the fit.

This is so important.

So many men, when they rent something or theythrow on a rental, the style may be okay, but if the fit is horrible, it's just notgoing to make it.

And if you spend $2000 on a jacket, then youneed to spend another $100 to get it altered to fit you correctly.

It doesn’t matter if it's a Ralph Laurenor if you picked it up at Brooks Brothers.

Make sure that it's tailored to fit you right.

All right, moving on from the jacket, we thengo down and we look at the trousers.

So with the trousers, first thing is you shouldnot be wearing a belt with classic black tie.

You should be either using suspenders or youshould have a tab waistband, and a tab waistband is an adjustable waistband, one that can fityou exactly properly, but what's going to be easier is to go with suspenders or bracesas they're called over in the UK.

This is more traditionally correct and they'regoing to be held up.

They're going to be worn a little bit higher.

Now, the shirt, I'll talk briefly about that, but it should always be white.

You can look for a peak cotton that's goingto have a little bit of a pattern — not really a pattern, but it's going to be the weave.

It's going to be a little bit different there.

Again, you can use studs.

On a traditional, you're just going to havethese holes right here, which you'll put in studs.

It's going to have also on the French cuffsas well.

The collar, let's talk about the collar.

Now, you have the turn-up collar, which isgoing to have a little bit of — like I said, that’s very rare that you're going to seesomething like that.

Most of the time, you're going to see thepoint collar and that is exactly what you're looking for.

You don't want to go with too much of a spread, just a regular turndown collar.

If you get everything right there on the shirt– you don't want to wear a regular white dress shirt and the reason being is that it'susually going to be made from inferior cotton and it's going to be a small detail, but peoplewill be able to tell.

It's going to be using plastic buttons probably.

Occasionally though, I do see a shirt thatdoesn’t use the studs and instead it uses a covered placket right here in the front, and that covered placket underneath there using mother of pearl buttons.

That's an okay substitute.

I think that's fine.

Okay, so we've talked about the shirt.

We've talked about the trousers.

Quick thing on the trousers jumping back, you do not want to have your trousers cuffed.

Cuffed is an informal look, so you want tohave it straight down there at the bottom, no cuff at the bottom of the trousers.

One thing and the biggest mistake I see menmake is that they do not have a waist covering.

So when I say waist covering, I'm talkingabout a cummerbund or I'm talking about a waistcoat, so either of those is going tobe fine.

A waistcoat is different in a vest.

Usually, the V goes deeper and it only hasthree buttons, but the whole point of this waist covering is to help transition the eyeswhenever you're looking up and down a man.

If he happens to leave his jacket unbuttoned, which you shouldn't leave it, you're only going to have one button on a traditionalblack tie jacket, so you always leave that buttoned unless you're seated.

When you're seated, you unbutton and you sitdown.

Your waist covering, make sure that you don'thave fabric just billowing out.

The cummerbund came out of India.

The British brought it back with them, I believe, over 150 years ago.

That right there, it's got a long stored history.

It's going to be less expensive, more common.

Don't go with one of those really bright colors.

Perhaps you can go with a red.

The easy way to remember how to wear thisis remember if you've got a ticket that you could tuck the ticket right in, so you wantthe folds going up.

Harder to find, but I think more appropriateand what looks better, is a waistcoat.

I really like the waistcoat.

You've got to make sure it fits properly though.

And again, the whole thing is it needs tocover as the trousers come up to the shirt.

So if you're somehow dancing, you take thejacket off, no one is going to be able to see that transition from the trouser to theshirt.

Okay, moving on, you want your socks to matchyour trousers.

Your shoes, you're going to go with Oxfordsor patent leather pumps.

I'm not really going to get down the pumplevel because if you've got slippers that are going through tuxedo, you're a bit moreadvanced than most men.

Most men are going to lean towards classicOxfords and there's a difference between Bluchers and Oxfords, so I'm talking about dress shoeshere.

The Oxford, it's a more sleek look.

It's going to have a closed lacing system.

I talk about this in other articles, but justmake sure that you've got a well-polished pair of Oxfords.

You can go with patent leather shoes in thiscase, but if you don't wear it very often — I guess if it's a rental, they may havethat option for you, but go with a very simple, sleek dress shoe.

Okay, so we've talked about the shoes.

The black tie bow, do not wear a necktie.

Now, I know if you're a bit more advanced, you can kind of bend and break this rule.

You see it in Hollywood quite a bit on thered carpet, men trying to wear a long necktie.

I think a classic bow tie, this is the oneoccasion where it's encouraged and it looks great, so go ahead and go for the bow tie.

The key with the bow tie though is to tieit yourself.

Don't go with the clip-on.

A clip-on always looks cheap.

It never looks right.

A bow tie, yes, you'll have to spend maybe5 to 15 minutes going through and tying it, but have fun with it.

It's really going to make or break the outfit.

Okay, so I've talked about the black tie.

I've talked about the shirt.

I've talked about the waist covering.

I've talked about the trousers.

I've talked about the jacket.

Well, I think I hit it.

Those are the basics.

I go into more detail.

Matching a Navy Blazer Jacket with Trousers – Mens Style Guide – Fashion Advice

Matching a Navy Blazer Jacket with Trousers- Mens Style Guide – Fashion Advice Hi.

Iím Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

And today weíre going to be talking abouthow to match a pair of trousers with a navy blazer.

If you havenít already, make sure to subscribeto my YouTube channel.

Just click on the button right above hereand youíll make sure to get these delivered to your inbox.

Weíre making a big push this year puttingout a lot of videos.

So, I donít want you to miss any.

And if youíre subscribed it will come rightto your inbox.

In addition, if youíd like learn about navyblazers go and click on the article down below.

We talk about them in a lot more detail.

But in this video, Iím going talk about matchinga pair of trousers with a navy blazer.

Now, blazers come in other ñ there are redblazers, there are dark green blazers, there are brighter blue blazers, lots of blazers.

But weíre going to be talking about the navyblazers.

And Iím not going to get into the specificsabout the exact type of fabric.

There are quite a few fabrics out there thata navy blazer could be made from.

But for all intensive purposes, this is goingto be one that almost looks like a suit except itís going to have the typical gold or silverbuttons you could have actually white mother of pearl or smoked mother of pearl as well.

So, but typically on a navy blazer, a truenavy blazer, youíre going to see some type of nautical thing to it and thatís why youíregoing to have the gold or the silver buttons.

In addition, youíll occasionally see themto be double-breasted, but most of the blazers I see out there now in the year 2010 and beingsold by the larger manufacturers, theyíre all single-breasted.

So Iím going to be focusing on single-breastednavy blazers assuming that youíre going to have gold or silver buttons or mother pearllook great.

So, donít ñ you know, consider that if youívegot one and you want to change it up for the summer.

Okay.

So what are the types of trousers? My favorite by far gray flannel.

Underused ñ just something that before WorldWar II was huge; after World War II, we starting to see it fade away.

You know, flannel used to be use heavier insuits and so you saw flannel fabrics being made and lot of off-the-rack suits beforeand just after World War II but they started disappearing in the early 19 ñ late 1950sor early 1960s and they just havenít made it come back and because of that, flanneltrousers in general had disappeared.

I love any type of gray flannel trouser witha navy ñ navy blazer.

And the reason being is it clearly does notmatches the different color but it just ñ it just work so well and I really like theidea that you still go with the ñ anywhere from a medium to a charcoal gray or work withñ with the dark navy and it just ñ it allows ñ itís a very monochromatic look and allowsthe eyes to go up and down.

And thatís really important if youíre ashorter man or youíre a bit stout because you donít want the ñ you donít want thatnavy blazer, you know, cut you in half or anything like that.

So, again, gray flannel trousers, if you canfind them, a little bit harder to find.

I know I may come over at A Tailored Suit, my custom clothier but you can probably find some either in vintage stores or just do asearch out there and see what you can find.

Gray worsted trouser is a second choice now.

Whatís the difference? Worsted wool is going to be a lighter weight.

Itís not going to have the nap surface.

So with a ñ with a flannel, they actuallytreat it afterwards and they run this machine over that kind of pulls out a little bit thefabric and itís also usually a bit heavier.

Worsted wool is going to be what you wouldtypically see in suits.

And this is going to be a lot easier to find.

You could go to a number of menswear storesand youíre going to find these right off-the-rack.

They will work there ñ I donít like themas much because itís almost ñ if the fabric is too dark and itís too close to navy, itísalmost going to look and violate one of the principles of wearing any type of sports jacketor navy blazer and thatís that you do not want the trousers to match the jacket tooclosely or to match it exactly because it didnít ñ itís going to look like weíretrying to put a suite together and thatís a big, big no no.

Donít ñ whenever youíre wearing sportsjacket or a blazer, you donít want to look like youíre trying to put a suit together.

That just looks bad.

So, avoid black trousers for that reason.

Iím not going to recommend them.

Navy blue trousers do not wear them with anavy blue blazer.

Now, brighter blues and true blues perhaps.

I have to see ñ Iíve seen it, Iíve seenit in the images.

Iíve seen younger men pull it off that lookspretty good but ñ okay, so weíve talked about gray flannel trousers, we talked aboutgray worsted wool trousers.

Now letís talk about chinos.

And this is something that you see a lot especiallyin collegeís campuses.

You men like to pull this off.

And it looks good on young men if the trousersand the jacket fit him well.

Otherwise, if heís a portly generation ora little bit heavier weight or short, then that starts contrast between the top and thebottom.

It kind of ñ it draws attention to that contrastthere and itís going to makes you look short.

So, you can pull this off, again, if youírein pretty.

.

.

.

.

.

good shape, you donít have to be in greatshape.

But you need to, you know, be able to takecare of yourself.

You need to be able to go out and run a mile.

So if you canít do that then double ñ donítreally go with this.

I can feel lot of politicians trying to pullthis off and these are the guys ñ theyíre pretty heavy and he just makes their upperbody look bigger and their lower body look smaller.

But otherwise, if you got a decent body, thislooks great because the contrast really ñ it really clearly states that this is a navyblazer.

It actually makes the jacket pop a bit moreeven though it does draw attention to the trousers, we quickly move down to the shoesbecause usually youíre going to be wearing dark shoes with this.

And so it allows you to draw a bit more attentionto the footwear.

And ñ so I really like this combination.

But, again, with chinos, khakis, any typeof tan trouser.

Make sure also that the style ñ that theyírenot ñ I donít know, a cheap $10 khakis.

I mean, really ñ although you can find somegreat deals for $10 in thrift stores but make sure theyíre cut and they look crisp andclean.

You donít want anything thatís distressedor faded or warmed.

That just kind of take ñ it takes away fora minute and it doesnít look right.

Now, talking about the distressed and fadedand warmed jeans.

Okay, the only time you should be wearingjeans with holes and then with a navy blazer is if youíre a musician or youíre a rockstarof some sort, you know, or maybe a Hollywood actor.

If youíre not in that category, you reallyneed to reconsider wearing distress jeans with a navy blazer.

Now a raw denim, thatís a whole another story.

Raw denim in a dark indigo almost looks likea pair of dress slacks and I think that that looks very nice with a navy blazer.

Itís something though ñ Iím not a big fanof about, you know, rolling up the bottom of the denim and wearing up with a navy ñdraws a little bit too much attention but Iím a fun of it.

Iíve ñ Iíve pulled this look off and Ithink it works for the younger man.

Once you pass the age, I think, of 50 or 60, well, it depends.

If you go out and you get some of ñ thereíssome mix, some really nice jeans and thereís a few other ones out there, what was it ñyouíll have to go to one of my jean articles and we talked about jeans for the old demand.

So if youíre pulling off the right type ofdenim, hey, you know, go for it.

The last thing with jeans Iím going to talkabout white jeans.

I have seen these pulled off with a navy blazerand it looked actually pretty good.

So, if youíve got the [0:07:31] [Phonetic]Cohunes go for it.

If not, well, you know, just, I donít know, go back to the khakis.

Okay.

Corduroy ñ and I want to thank my friendBernhard Roetzel.

He wrote the book Gentleman.

And heís got some great images of how corduroycan work with a navy blazer.

Now, again, this is like the chinos and thekhakis make sure the corduroy fits you well because if it doesnít fits you well; itísjust going to be a bad look.

Itís going to look too bad.

Itís not going to look right.

And also if youíre going to go with the startcontrast, again, you need to be in pretty good shape and make sure the jacket is fittedand go for a little bit shorter of a jacket thatís going to help a balance look.

In corduroy, you can get that in red, brown, gold ñ the thing with corduroy is the texture is really going to differentiate it from thejacket and thatís key whenever matching a jacket in a pair of trousers.

Last but not the least, linen.

So light-colored linen ñand this will bea bit loser.

Linen is one lose.

You can pull this off on someone.

And this looks great especially if your jacketis unlined.

And by unlined, you know, basically it doesníthave the lining on the inside of the jacket.

Iím actually wearing this unlined.

And that helps keep the heat away.

And if youíre in it, in an instance, whereyou need to be wearing a jacket, you need to be looking sharp during the summer anditís hot, well, linen trousers within an unlined blazer jacket with perhaps a linenshirt, itís going to be a pretty sharp look especially if itís a single-breasted butif itís double-breasted, you might need to wear something on the neck.

But ñ okay, the general rule again is makesure that your navy blazer does not too closely match your trousers.

If some people are mistaken it as a suit, itís a bad combination.

If not, you know, usually the brighter colors, the ñ a little bit more off combinations, those require a bit of courage but I encourageyou to try it because you only live once.

So go out there and dress your style.

Matching Leather & Matching Metals In Menswear – Men's Clothing Accessories Matching Tips

Matching Leather & Matching Metals In Menswear- Men's Clothing Accessories Matching Tips Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, we're going to be talking about matchingmetals and matching leathers in menswear.

If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this, if you findit useful, I would also appreciate it if you would like it down below.

And last but not least, if you haven't grabbedmy free 47-page e-book, make sure to grab it.

You'll be able to see it.

The link's right down there.

We'll also link you to a great article, butI said that was the last thing I was going to mention, so technically I couldn't mentionthat last article, but I did anyway.

Okay, this is the question, “Hello, Antonio! I've got an interesting question.

It's a simple rule that your belt should matchyour dress shoes.

However, I'm wondering about your dress watch.

If I'm wearing brown dress shoes and a brownbelt with a silver buckle, should my watch have a brown band and silver rim? What if I wear a watch with a gold rim ora black band? Maybe I'm paying too much attention to detail.

Thank you very much.

Raymond.

” All right, Raymond, I've got some bad newsfor you.

If all of your metals and all of your leathersdo not match exactly, one year from the date that you wear this outfit, you will turn todust.

Sorry to deliver this news to you, man.

All right.

Seriously, so you are paying a little bittoo — I mean, the general rule is leathers match leather.

Metals match metals, but there are exceptionsto that rule.

And probably the one I can think of for mostmen is you simply don't have enough metals and enough leathers to make sure that youmatch it exactly, especially when it comes to items like a watch.

You've got a favorite watch.

You've got one that you just love to wear, your only really nice dress watch perhaps, and it doesn’t match your belt or your shoes.

In that case, wear it.

It's a very small detail, something that ifyou get fit, fabric, and style, which I harp on all the time, if you get those right, thisis going to be a small thing.

If you understand that those are the rulesbut you decide to break it anyway because that watch has sentimental value to you, allthe more power to it.

That takes me to the second thing, is thatyou've got an item that has sentimental value such as a wedding ring.

My wedding ring is silver.

Now, most of the metals I wear is silver.

I'm not a big fan of yellow gold, so I keepeverything silver, keep it simple, but most men, their wedding rings are gold.

And if they like silver and everything elseis silver, of course they're always going to have that mismatched, but it's a smalldetail.

It's a sentimental detail and on that case, you can bend and break the rules.

The other one is going to be how small isthe item.

I'll leave that as last because I was goingto say visibility, but it really comes down to how small it is and is it even visible.

So in this case, this is very small.

Now, if I'm wearing a huge ring, let's sayI'm a Texas A&M Aggie and I've got the huge ring — well, ask an Aggie to see those rings– those things are just huge.

At any case, he'll want to be a little bitmore tuned to that ring matching some of them out just because of its visibility.

Now, when it comes to buckles, if you're wearinga suit all of the time and you've always got your jacket on, technically no one's evergoing to see that buckle.

So let's say you're wearing a pair of monkstrap dress shoes and they've got a silver buckle on them and your belt has a gold buckle.

Well, keep your jacket on and all of a sudden, because it's invisible, no one's going to know.

Now, if you're the kind of guy and you takeyour jacket off quite a bit, then you're going to have a mismatched metal.

Now, the same thing with leathers, again, those same things are going to apply.

You want to try to match your leathers, butyou don't have to match them exactly, and this really applies to browns because browns, there are so many different shades.

And if you try to get your shoes to matchyour leathers, your leather shoes to match your leather belt exactly, you're going tobe hard-pressed especially if you condition or you polish your shoes quite a bit becauseover time, they're going to change in color.

A quick tip though is if you're out buyinga new pair of shoes, make sure to get a belt especially if you're looking at browns, lightcolored browns especially.

Find something when you're out buying theshoes, when you have the shoes with you that matches, purchase it, take it home.

You're going to be good to go.

Blacks, that's why it's so easy, and again, white-blacks are in the realm of — every man should have black shoes and a black belt.

They're the most conservative, the most simple, and they're also the easiest to match, of course.

All right, Raymond, hopefully that answeredyour question.

And you will not turn to dust.

You'll turn to stone actually.

Take care.

I'll see you in the next video.

Bye-bye.

How To Buy Quality Men's Clothing – 3 Tips To Identify Stylish Menswear – Men's Fashion Style Advice

How To Buy Quality Men's Clothing – 3 TipsTo Identify Stylish Menswear – Men's Fashion Style Advice Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, I'm going to be giving you three tipson how to find quality clothing.

If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this, if you findit useful, I would appreciate it if you would like it down below.

And last but not least, if you'd like to learnmore, if you'd like a free 47-page e-book on men's style, you've heard me say it abouta hundred times, grab it.

The link is right down there and let me knowwhat you think.

Okay, how to find quality clothing.

I get this question a lot and people wantme to point them to brands.

They want exactly what brands are going tobe — and brands are a great way sometimes to determine if something is quality or notbecause that's really what a brand is.

I'll use that as the first way to determineor to find something good, is to find a brand that suits your lifestyle, that makes clothingat an acceptable quality for you at a price that you're willing to pay.

There are higher end brands, there are lowerend brands, and it really depends on what you consider value, and value isn't cheap, value isn't expensive.

Value is where you willingly give your dollarsfor what you get and you feel that it was an even — in fact, you feel it was a betterdeal for you because you've got something great, so that's what you need to find.

It's very difficult and the reason I can'trecommend brands — except my own, but that's a whole another thing.

I'm going to be building out the Antonio Centenolabel here soon, just watch.

But really, brands change over time, so askanyone that's been a big fan of, let's say, Hugo Boss.

That company is a German-based company, butthey have evolved.

They started manufacturing in different places.

It used to be that they're made in Germany, then it was made in China, and many people feel that the quality went down.

I have nothing against the Chinese.

They make some of the most amazing productsin the world, but oftentimes, they're also associated with some of the lower cost, lowerproduction, and many people felt that that company all of a sudden started cutting cornerswhere it didn’t use to, and there's a reason why Brioni and these higher end suit companiesare able to charge what they do because they pay attention to all those little details.

Now, companies like Brooks Brothers, they'vedone a really good job of keeping a lot of the manufacturing under direct control, sothat's a company that has maintained a very good brand for a number of years.

But on the other hand, for every Brooks Brothers, there are 10 to 20 companies which that brand started off, let's say, at a very good highlevel and then it fell; it petered off.

You can see this in automobiles as well, sobrands, they go up and they also go down.

I mean, think about in the 1970s and 1980s.

Where was Toyota? Toyota, it took them decades and a lot ofPR and a lot of just actually making a superior product and offering it a lower cost, thatthey were able to go from these tiny little vehicles that American-made car manufacturerskind of laughed at, to all of a sudden the number one car manufacturer in the world.

I'll jump in to number two.

Number two is to have a trusted advisor inthe industry, so this can be a blogger.

This can be somebody that is a trusted salesman, and I'll use the trusted salesman example in buying a car.

My family, we needed a mini van about a yearand a half ago.

What I did is I've got a good friend thatruns a dealership and I said, “Alex, I want you to just be on the lookout.

This is what my needs are.

I trust you.

Look out there and find me a great value.

” Every month, I'd get a call that he's gotsomething.

I think it was back in December of last year, he gives me a call.

He's like, “Tony, you've got to get out here.

This is a perfect vehicle for you.

It's great and I can give it to you at thisprice.

” I went out there and checked it out.

I had the money.

In fact, I had already sent him the money.

Basically, I trusted this gentleman and hetook care of me.

In fact, it was such a good deal that I hadthe Wisconsin tax authority contact me and say how did I get this deal because I gotit way under the cost in which they probably should've sold it to me, but that's havinga trusted salesman — that's having somebody that's looking out for you that of course, they're going to do it.

For them, it's just knowing that they've gota client which is going to pull the trigger, is going to make the buy, and they go theextra mile to kind of be looking out for exactly your needs.

Last but certainly not least, you need tounderstand what quality is because at the end of the day, even though I trust my buddy, Alex, I did inspect that vehicle.

I took it for a test drive, looked under thehood, kicked the tires, did everything I can in a sense to make sure it is good becauseyou do want to trust people, but at the end of the day, you are responsible for whateveryou get.

And so, that brand may have been deliveringgreat quality, but look at the clothing.

Be able to look at some of the stitching, and this is stuff that you can learn.

You can learn how a jacket is put together.

You could feel the clothing, the fabric.

It's really about a little bit of self-education, something I know a lot of guys shy away from, but I've tried to make it easier with a lotof these videos.

Who knows? I may actually put together a video here soonin which I tear apart a jacket and show the insides and all that stuff.

Those are my three tips.

Find a brand that you trust and works wellfor you.

Number two, have a trusted salesman or bloggerwho you can go to and pull information from.

Number three, be able to see quality by trainingyourself.

Okay.

That's it.

I'll see you in the next video.

Bye-bye.

How A Man Can Change His Personal Style – Permanent Change Psychology – Fashion Tips

How A Man Can Change His Personal Style – PermanentChange Psychology – Fashion Tips Hi.

I’m Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

And today I'm going to be talking about howto change your personal style – basically, creating conditions for change.

Now, this is really important.

Notice, I am focusing on the word change becausechange is hard.

Eighty-five percent of us could do betterat work.

We've got a boss or a mentor who's tryingto help us change.

And 85% of us are going to fail.

Ninety-five percent of us, who start on adiet, fail to maintain that diet or fail to maintain and keep that weight off – 95%failure rate.

Ninety-eight percent of us fail whenever wewrite down and try to do those little New Year's resolutions that we try to do everyyear – 98% fail.

So, failure is the rule.

It is what happens most of the time.

So, if you want to go out there and improveyour personal style.

You want to start looking better.

Understand that if you don't understand theforces that are working against you to fail, you're going to fail most of the time – thevast majority of the time.

And so this video is about showing you thesix factors, which if you understand those and if you can control them, you're goingto drastically increase the chance that you are going to succeed.

And that this change is going to stick.

So, what are the six things I'm going to betalking about? I'm going to be talking about personal motivationand personal ability, social motivation and social ability, and structural motivationand structural ability.

So, six components here, and I'm going togo into each of them very quickly.

So, what is personal motivation? Well, this isn't saying that “I just wantto improve my personal style.

” This is having a very specific reason forwhy you want to look better.

Maybe it's because you want to get that girlthat you've been looking at for six months and haven’t have the courage to ask herout a date.

You want her to get to notice you and at leastto have this favorable impression that he, at least, is a sharp dresser.

Perhaps, you're a husband and you've beenmarried for five years but you want your wife to — you really want her to still be attractedto you.

And you want to step up your game a bit.

Or perhaps, you're a father and you just want– you know that you represent your family every time you go out.

And you're tired of looking like the guy — thatyoung, 20-year old guy because you're no longer him.

You're in your mid-30s and you want to showthe world that you're an up-and-comer.

Whatever your motivation may be, write thatdown and be very specific about why you want to dress better.

It's important that you have this personalmotivation that you're very specific about what it is.

Now, personal ability.

You know this is about you understanding whatit takes to improve your personal style.

So, a great resource here at Real Men RealStyle as we put out a lot of information that can improve your ability.

We've got courses.

There's just a lot of information also outthere across the web.

You can go out there and buy books.

You can hire a coach.

I mean, there are many things right here thatyou can do to improve your personal ability.

But your personal ability is you understandingand you having the skill set to make that change.

Because if you just go out there and spenda lot of money on clothing without knowing what is quality clothing or what you needto buy to have a great solid wardrobe, you're going to end up wasting a lot of money buyingthings that don't fit you.

So, again, on the personal, you want to havemotivation and you want to have the ability.

Now, let's talk about social motivation andsocial ability.

Social motivation is, “Who do you hang outwith?” Are you putting yourself in environments inwhich you have no motivation to improve the way you dress? If you spend all your free time downstairsin your basement or in your garage working on your — and I'm not saying there's anythingbad about working on your vehicles.

But if you never get out, you know, it's kindof hard for you to be motivated to dress better because you're not going put it to good use.

Or if you're hanging out with friends who, their idea of dressing sharp is putting on a polo shirt with their shorts instead ofa raggedy T-shirt.

Let me just say that it's going to be hardto change in this environment.

You should start, you know, looking at possiblygoing to or becoming part of events that will force you to dress a little bit better.

Perhaps, you want to start taking your family– perhaps, instead of going out to eat five times a week, you go out to eat two timesa week.

But you go out to a little bit nicer of arestaurant and you make it more of an occasion.

And you need to dress up a little bit more.

Not that you have to, they would still letyou in if you were in T-shirt and shorts.

But it's more about, you want to dress nice.

You want your family to go out.

This is a nice dinner you're going to enjoywith your family.

Or maybe if there are clubs you're lookingat, you realize that “I want dress better.

I'm going to go to places in which the baris raised a bit.

” So, this is social motivation.

This is surrounding yourself, becoming partof groups.

Another one is you could join a private club.

There are a number of these out there in which– and these are really neat because you're putting yourself and you're going out thereand making – you're not forgetting about your old friends.

But you're making new friends.

You're getting around people who are like-minded, who want go places and you're just broadening your horizons.

All right.

When it comes to social ability, who in yournetwork can help coach you? For some guys, they're going to have to hirea coach.

Other people, they simply just need to lookaround.

You know maybe there's someone at work thatdresses really sharp.

And maybe you can approach this person andsay, “Hey, where do you do your shopping at? Is there somebody you can put me in touchwith who is helping you take it to the next level?” Perhaps, there's a menswear, you know – andI'm not talking about just a salesman, but I'm talking a menswear expert in your townthat you can go talk to.

And maybe be very clear, “I'm not going tobuy clothing from you right now but I really would like to be able to stop in here andask you questions.

” And this is about social ability.

This is about you having somebody that youcan talk to and learn from as a coach.

There were many online options, as well.

I've got friends over at Hendricks Park, thatwhere my friend, Lisa Bruckner – Grant Harris over at Image Granted.

You know these are more professional services, but if you're serious about this, you want to have the social ability.

You want to have those mentors and coachesout there.

Now, let's talk about structural motivationand structural ability.

Okay.

So, structural motivation – this is aboutyou having a reward and kind of a penalty system for you achieving your goals.

Maybe it's something where you go out andyou buy yourself a really nice jacket.

Or you go out and you buy yourself somethingeven smaller, let's say a really nice dress shirt but you can't touch it.

You put it over there and it needs to be adjustedto fit you a bit better because it was off the rack.

But you tell yourself that if you meet allyour goals, if you do all of these things that you’ve kind of laid out for yourselfin this system, that you will take that to the tailor in two weeks to get it adjustedto fit you.

If you fail, and perhaps you didn't get yourwife in on this – if you fail, that goes right back to the store and you have to returnit.

You know it's something like – it’s ahuman response that we're actually more motivated if we're going to lose something than if weare going to gain something.

So that's why I kind of put that little scenariothere.

But the whole thing is you can't take it backto the store.

I mean, you don't want that to happen.

But if you fail in your goals, you know, hey, that's kind of a kick in the butt for you to get out there and to start dressing betterthat week.

Or to pay attention to those little details, to start taking better care of your shoes.

And if you do that for two weeks, you getthis little reward.

And it doesn't have to be anything big.

You know maybe a shirt is a little bit toobig.

I mean, it could be something really small.

The thing is you want little victories tohelp you – motivate you because those do make a difference.

Now let's get to structural ability.

This is where you set things up, so that it'seasier for you to dress better than it is for you to not dress better.

One of them is simply laying your clothesout the night before.

Don't iron your clothing in the morning.

Don't steam your suits in the morning.

I mean, simply lay out your clothing.

Make it so that if you were late for work, it's easier for you to throw on this clothing that is simply laid out versus you runningyour closet and putting on something that, well, just doesn't look great because thatclothing is laid out there.

Simply having that structure there is goingto make a huge difference.

Okay.

This has been Antonio Centeno.

I'm over here at Real Men Real Style.

I founded this website because I wanted tohelp just average guys, normal guys dress better.

And I hope you've enjoyed this.

Again, this is probably one of the most importantvideos I've put out because change is important.

It's hard to do.

And if you don't have a system, most likelyyou're going to fail.

So understand the six forces, which were affectingyou.

See them for what they are and control them.

Take care and best of luck in making the changein your life.

Bye-bye.

Why Women Are Jealous Of Men's Clothing Options – Style Advice For The Ladies

Why Women Are Jealous Of Men's Clothing Options- Style Advice For The Ladies Hi.

Iím Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style.

Today Iím going to be talking about why womenare jealous of menís clothing options.

Okay.

If you havenít already, please subscribeto our YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this video, I wouldappreciate it if you would Like it down below.

And finally, Iím going to link you to anotherñ what am I linking you to? Yeah, thatís right.

Another article and more information aboutthis.

Actually Iím linking it to my 47-page e-bookbecause Iím not going to write an article about this one in particular.

And actually what Iím doing here is Iímanswering a question.

It came in, ìIím a 23-year-old slim-builtfemale.

î And I actually get too many women writing this so this is kind of cool.

ìI really admire the male sartorial aesthetic.

I donít like fairly pretty fashions.

I like the sharp, tailored look but donítknow how to adapt the style I like so much on a man for myself.

I was particularly by the title of your latestYouTube video, why dressing sharp is simple for men.

î It was a good video and I reallyexplain, I think you know, why it is simple for us.

And so she often finds herself admiring menísclothing, including so far is they even try them on but it doesnít work for.

So basically the question is, what can shedo? She loves menís wear but she doesnít wantto look booch.

She is a young, petite female and sheís justwearing ñ why is she jealous? Well, Iím just going to say it, she is jealousof menís clothing.

And nothing wrong with that because as guys, we donít even know how good we have it.

And let me explain.

Menís clothing is all about quality, simplicityand fit.

Now Iím talking higher end menís clothing.

Iím not talking about most of the stuff thatguys are out there wearing.

But the stuff that she is looking at, itísdifferent because in womenís clothing, oftentimes theyíre much more prone to fashion.

And so, there are things that a woman is goingto buy and sheís going to wear it for one season and sheís never going to wear it again.

And the manufacturers know this.

And theyíve got to produce these clothingat a price which she will buy it and not feel too bad about discarding it.

And so what happens is a lot of the clothingit is made, in fact, most of the clothing that is made for women is a very poor quality.

Itís very hard for a woman to go out andactually find a suit that is 100% wool.

Simply because suits, you know, for them theygo in and out of style so quickly, they ñ itís just hard.

For men, we are so fortunate because for usfashion doesnít really ñ I mean, fashion does ñ it tries to affect us but really weíreabout classic style.

And I know I make suits which are going tobe in style for 20 to 40 years.

I mean look at Cary Grant.

The guy could walk out of a 1950s movie intoñ I mean, on the streets in New York in 2011.

Heís going to look perfectly fine.

So when it comes down to it, menís clothingoverall is built to a higher quality.

And per piece it may actually be just as expensiveor more expensive than womenís clothing.

And oftentimes if itís the same price, theman is going to get a much better deal because his shoes perhaps are going to be hand-made, hand-sewn.

If the woman ñ I mean if sheís getting theseshoes, theyíre not — you know, sheís oftentimes buying a name versus buying quality.

The other thing is going to be the simplicity.

So oftentimes, and I see this being married.

When I talk to my wife, sheíll find somethingthat it looks like itís almost perfect but there will be one detail that the designerput on that piece of clothing, it just makes it look bad.

I mean, itís like, îWhy did she put thislace here?î Or ìWhy did she go with this type of decorate, you know, this embroidery? It just ruins the whole outfit.

î And with menís wear, overall we keep it prettydarn simple.

And thatís great because we allow in a sense, each individual piece to stand on its own.

And yes, you can mix and match to try to makethings, you know, a little bit more exciting, bringing in some color.

But overall, our clothing is simple.

Finally fit.

So if you go into a high-end men store, youknow, theyíre going to treat you really nice.

Theyíre going to measure you up, theyíregoing to make sure the clothing is adjusted.

You have to go into a really high-end womenstore to get that kind of treatment.

And women, theyíve kind of ñ I think manyof them have ñ they either have their own tailor who they take their things becausethey trust them.

And many of them, because they just doníttrust the store tailors because they donít understand that woman, her body type, andhow to get that.

So for guys, weíve got it good.

But you know, this again, this is for ñ thewoman that wrote me, she asked me not to mention her name and Iíll do that.

But let me throw out a few female style iconswho, you perhaps can look at, and if thereís any other women out there watching this.

So you need to go watch the movie, I thinkit is called Coco and it talks about Coco Chanel.

And a greatÖ Ömovie.

I really liked it simply because hereís awoman bucking the trend and she is in the time period in which all women are wearingjust goddy I mean over-the-top outfit, and she wanted to go towards simplicity and quality.

And itís a great movie.

I think youíll enjoy it.

To look for a modern ñ I think as a modernfemale style icon, look at the woman called Yulia Tymoshenko.

And she was the former Prime Minister of Ukraine.

So hereís a woman and one of Ukraineís ñand this is the country with almost 50 million people.

One of Europeís or Eastern Europeís highestranking public officials and yet when you look at this woman, she had style.

And she wasnít just ñ I mean, she was oozingprofessionalism but she was still oozing sexuality.

And this is a woman ñ gosh, sheís got tobe over 50 but when you look at pictures of her, youíre like, wow.

I think she was voted easily one of the topfive hottest politicians ever.

I mean she ñ yeah, I donít even want tomention her, you know, who she is being compared to in the US.

But letís just say she blows everyone outof the water.

She amazed ñ she looks better than her 27-year-olddaughter.

And a lot of it is all about her presentation.

And sheís very professionally clothed.

Btu the way the clothing fits her, and theway ñ whatís the style that she brings in, amazing.

Finally, if you want to look at some stores, I would ñ you know, youíre 23 years old, so youíre probably maybe going to the wrongstores.

Youíre maybe going to stores thatís tootrendy.

I advise checking out Ann Taylor.

Itís a great store for women that are moreprofessional.

And another thing is ñ or another store Iwant to share, itís just brand is Zed Zaharoff.

And this is my friend George.

He just open this online.

Theyíve got very limited pieces but Georgedoes great job of bringing designs from around the world and bring them to his website anduses a lot of classic lines.

Itís a lot of professional clothing but itlooks really nice.

I would also like to recommend few books.

So, this A Guide to Elegance.

You can find it on Amazon.

Weíve got The Color of Style, which again, you can find this one on the Amazon.

The Pocket Stylist.

The One Hundred by Nina Garcia, great book.

I really like this one.

And this one is awesome.

, The Science of Sexyby Bradley Bayou.

And so some of you guys are maybe asking, ìAntonio why do you have five books about female dress?î First of all, where do youthink I come up with all these ideas about what I talked about? I just look at, you know, these womenís bookand they gave me all types of ideas to ask you guys.

But no, seriously, a lot of great insightin those books.

I highly advise, you know, possibly pickingthem up for your wife, if youíre a guy watching this.

I know about you guys, but I like my wifeto look good.

And thatís why we have three kids.

Okay.

Last thing Iím going to hit on is what canyou do as a woman to, you know, letís say, youíve already been to Ann Taylor, youívechecked with Zaharoff, you know, but what can you do with the current clothing in yourwardrobe? One, get it tailored.

I think American women in general are prettybad about not taking their clothing to a tailor.

I mean American men are worst.

But American women, it seems they really walkaround in their pajamas and they forgot that there were tailors and seems theyíre justout there who can take their clothing and make it just look great for their body shape.

Another one is pick up the classic pieces.

So one of those books I showed you itís gotthe Nina Garciaís One Hundred, look at those, I mean the trench coat classic military comesfrom a male.

I mean that ñ what doesnít get more manlythan a trench coat? But a woman in trench coat, especially onemade for her, it looks great.

Accessories.

So you can take something that if you didnítaccessorize it, it would look very masculine.

But once you throw in a few accessories, itísgoing to look perfect for you.

And finally, consider having some pieces custom-made.

I donít make womenís wear.

Itís just something Iím not wanting to getinto but there are many custom-tailors out there.

If you need a good pencil skirt, you canítfind one that fits you right or made from the right material, well go to a tailor andhave that skirt made.

And itís a classic piece and it will lookgreat with your wardrobe.

Okay.

Well, guys just one more, Iím not going toget much more into womenís clothing at this point, but I did want to answer, it was agood question and I kind of want with a little bit of a sensational bit of a title therebut I donít know, let me know what you think.

Hopefully you like it.

Iíll see youÖ.

Men's style gurus: do you trust all of them ? Alex Costa, Zuniga, Alpham… Check out this video!

– There is a lot of contentout there about men's style and fashion.

With all this content available for free, no surprise it looks like a jungle.

And you probably end upthinking that is a matter of point of view.

It can throw you into confusion.

There are millions ofpieces of information.

Which one is the right one for you? What should you trust? Is there a right or wronganswer about men's fashion and style? Let's find out what tothrow in the garbage that is not relevant to you.

My name is Alex and I doappreciate you being here.

This is my channel about men's style.

If you like this kind of stuff subscribe so you will not miss my content.

There are two kinds ofrules in men's fashion: general rules and specific rules.

Rules are guidelines to help you stand out and they are meant to give you direction.

General rules are broad.

They can be applied 90% of the time.

They can provide non-specific guidance.

For example, you should wearsocks that cover your ankles, as a general rule.

But, what about wearing loafers in summer? You should not wear socks at all.

That's the specific rule.

So, specific rules are, as you see, not broad.

They're applied in specificcases and they are changing or modifying, general rules.

Rules are meant to be a guide.

Just a guide.

Now, check this out.

The more formal your outfit is, the more you need tocare about style rules.

There is actually a scale of formality.

Every single rule aboutmen's fashion is relative to the level of formality.

There is absolutely no formalityon going to buy some food.

You can wear whatever you want.

But what about theinterview for your new job? What about your first appointment? On the other side, not every day we need togo to a cocktail party with the Queen of England, so it's easier to create outfits without being so peculiar about rules.

Colors, patterns, andmaterials are involved in the scale of formality.

I will talk about itmore in a specific video.

So, this is the question: How do we compare pieces ofinformation and avoid confusion? Truth needs to be told.

The number of followers someoneschannel has is not a sign of knowledge, right? You already know this.

Sometime, it happen thatchannels are very big don't give you good information.

Their goal might not to inform you but just entertain you.

There are channels like “alpha m.

“, or “teaching men's fashion”, Alex Costa, and a lot more.

Is there a way toevaluate their information and develop your own mindset? I made up a little checklist to help you and have a tool to evaluateinformation from others.

I hope you enjoy it.

– [Voice-Over] The Ziploc bag.

You fill it up midway with water, then you put that bag inside the shoe and then put that shoe in the freezer.

– [Alex] I have this onelong sleeve one from COS and they were all pretty affordable and it's a really great way to show that you know what you're doing.

For example, when I wear polosI get a lot of compliments.

– The fact is, you need tomake sure you are putting your best first impression foot forward.

This includes you dressing sharp.

This includes you wearing a watch.

– Ask yourself: Are we talking about thesame level of formality? When someone says something, are we talking about tipsto go to the supermarket or to have breakfast with the Queen? – [Alex] You don't reallywant to be too casual with just a t-shirt, so you pick something in between.

– You can easily understandthe quality of information that someone provides you.

There are pieces of informationthat are very important and useful, and others that are, nah.

– [Voice-Over] And then putthat shoe in the freezer.

– Who is this person primarily talking to? Because, well, kids aredressing in a different way than men.

So the person might betalking to teenagers and you're not longer a teenager, anymore.

– Second to last look andwith this one we're getting a little bit in adifferent style direction.

– [Voice-Over] Own withjeans for a nice casual look.

Under a jacket for a dressed up look.

– Is the person tryingto sell me something? Let's talk about the elephant in the room.

The bigger the channel, the more probable is theperson is telling you something because he's pitching a product.

Why? Because it's hard to sayno to a juicy paycheck.

– Personally, have fallen in love with.

Like this murdered out metal mesh strap.

You've got the rose gold markers.

This one is a chronograph.

(laughing) Like, if it was socially acceptable, I would wear two watches, at a time.

– I will give youinformation about men's style that you can apply or just let it go.

But, do me a favor anddevelop your own mindset.

You need to study, understand, apply and just not simply follow.

Be a smart follower.

Let me know if you like this video and let's continue theconversation in the comments.

I start my own mailing list because I want to keep theconnection open with you.

Why Millennials Love Gucci

Narrator: Millennials love Gucci.

Lil Pump: Gucci gang, Guccigang, Gucci gang, Gucci gang! Narrator: Scroll through any fashionable millennial's social media, and chances are, you'll seeGucci's iconic double G logo, whether on belts, bags, or even capes.

Gucci is pretty mucheverywhere these days.

Kylie Jenner even madeheadlines for carrying her baby in a $625 Gucci baby carrier.

In the first half of 2018, Gucci's sales nearly doubled.

And 55% of those sales weremade to consumers under 35.

Considering how 18 to 35-year-olds contributed to an 85% growth in the luxury goods marketin 2017, this is a big deal.

Jessica Tyler: Millennialsdefinitely matter in the luxury market.

A lot of luxury brandshave been partnering with streetwear brands andfocusing on social media to try and reach millennials more because it's such a big market for them.

Narrator: But why do millennials and teens love Gucci so much? Gucci's founder, Guccio Gucci, originally designed leather goods for the aristocratic upper classes, specializing in horseback riding gear.

As Gucci grew in popularity, it became synonymous with high-class elegance and glamour.

In the 1960's, Gucci was associated with people like Jackie Kennedy.

One of the Gucci bags that Jackie Kennedy was photographed wearing waseven renamed “The Jackie.

” Today in 2018, Gucci is still very much an expensive luxury brand, but it's no longerexclusively for the elite.

I think that Gucci isworking from the top down, to rebrand themself in a way that is very millennial-friendly, and I think that they aren't afraid to turn the tables upside down on what it means to create luxury, to sell luxury, to be a luxury company.

Narrator: In 2015, Guccibrought on Alessandro Michele as their new creative director.

Under Michele's leadership, Gucci has come to embrace streetwear and the influence of popular culture.

DiNardo: Alessandro Michele is creating pop culture references at a time in which peopleare really searching for a little bit of nostalgiawith something new.

And it's a formula that's really working.

I think also, Gucci is veryhonest about what they're doing, and genuine, and that theyknow that their designs are a little bit outthere, to say the least, they're a little tongue-in-cheek, but they're in on the joke, they're a part of the game.

And they love it.

Narrator: Recently, Gucci even collaborated with Dapper Dan, a Harlem-based designer who became famous in the 80's for creating knock-up designs ofluxury brands like Gucci.

Gucci's logo has come to represent more than just luxury or wealth, and millennials are embracing that, especially as logos continue to take over the fashion world again.

DiNardo: There are several reasons why brand logos are making a big comeback.

One, the most obvious beingthat everything 90's is back.

And we know that logomania wasa huge part of 90's fashion.

Another reason why logos aremaking such a big comeback, is that we're coming off of such a strong periodof minimalism, that, where else do you go but theexact opposite, with fashion? And another reason why I think the logo is making a comeback, is that we're at a more comfortable place, in society, in culture, in our economy, in wanting reassurance inthe money that we have, and the money that we spend.

Narrator: Back in 2015, Gucciwas actually considering using their logo less in designs.

In the aftermath of the 2008 Recession, consumers were less interestedin conspicuous consumption.

DiNardo: So conspicuousconsumption, as defined by Veblen almost 120 years ago, reallyis this idea of waste.

It's having what youabsolutely don't need, but indicates certainsymbols to society of status, so, obviously, luxury itemsare the epitome of that, items that, you know, arenot in your essential list, in order to survive.

But to thrive, in certain social circles.

Narrator: Designsemblazoned with luxury logos seemed a little too gaucheat a time when so many people were struggling financially.

I think now that we'reat a comfortable state in the economy where people are feeling, it's okay to have astatus shoe, a status bag, a status t-shirt again, andthere isn't such the stigma of paying $180 for a logot-shirt as there once was.

Narrator: Millennialsand teens also love Gucci because so many of themgrew up seeing Gucci on celebrities or in magazines.

DiNardo: A lot of the people who are embracing the trends now, just touched on the verytip of it in their youth, but now can fully expand intoit, ad nauseam, as adults, with disposable income to do so.

Narrator: So, can other luxury brands copy Gucci's success? I think what other luxurybrand houses could do to continue, or try toemulate the formula of Gucci, really is to try to beauthentic to themself.

I think what Gucci, you know, does so well, which is really hard toimitate their formula, is that they're just natural, it's just a very natural way that they're approaching the market, and approaching attention, and it doesn't feel contrived.

I think Gucci in 2018 representsexcitement in fashion, again, it gives peoplesomething to look forward to, something to talk about.
