It seems like I'm always reading on here that the first thing a woman judges a man on when she sees him is what he's wearing. Is this really the case? My entire wardrobe consists of random, cheap t-shirts and off-brand jeans. Does this immediately put me at a disadvantage to the guy who wears $70 t-shirts from Abercrombie and $200 pre-ripped blue jeans? Assuming that I'm clean-cut and well-kept in the other aspects of my appearance, and that I have only as much fashion sense as it takes to know not to wear green with orange, am I doing myself a disservice by not dropping an entire paycheck on one outfit?

A guy can wear the latest pair of jeans, the latest brand name tee, the best sneakers available - but, if he is a jerk he is jerk and nothing will change that. It is important to wear clothes that fit properly and look neat and clean. Yes, you can wear a Lacoste dress shirt with a little alligator in the corner for $200 (or whatever), but you can also find yourself a perfectly decent button for $20 that fits well, is clean and ironed. Brands names 'stand in' for other things. We think of brand names we associate it them with certain characteristics/traits that we even ascribe to real 'human' things. The main thing is to wear clothes fit your body type (I recommend you read "What Not Wear" by Stacey & Clinton) - they have excellent tips on how to dress for your body type. You do not have to wear brand names -- for everyday clothes its clean, neat, and right fit that matters the most. Wear colour shades that reflect your skin tone is also important. The best thing to always, at least I find is to keep it simple and always add on an accessory (ie. Funky tie, shoes etc). You just have to know how to put it together. Some of the outfits I have received greatest compliments on have cost me like $40. Always, wear everything with a sense of confidence. Brand names cannot stand in for you are. People who use them to stand in for other things have no confidence in themselves.0
