I attempted to talk to someone a while ago... Her only problem was that I "dress too plainly". I was wearing my normal attire... Black T-shirt tucked in (I am a neat freak...), Pair of Levi 501 Jeans, A black and white Leather jacket, A black ball cap, and a pair of black boots. I don't care for labels or overspending on clothing... I just like clothing to be functional... My only "fashion accessory" was my leather jacket, which is an M.Julian Race Jacket. Mind you, I wear similar all the time... I have approx. 24 black T-shirts... And about 7 pair of 501's, 2 pair of True religion (to which I did not buy, they were gifts...), and 4 pair of misc. denim slacks...
Do I dress plain?
Would you date a guy that is not flashy?
Let me say this:
I believe in function over fasion... I don't care for "name brands"... Why? I'm not being "cheap" but why pay more for crap that is no different than the crap that costs less... I am not a "Wallmart rat" nonetheless...
Okay, my boots have to be name brand... Only Harley Boots work for me. Either that or Corcoran military airborne boots... LOL My slacks don't have to be, and the only shirts and underwear I wear are Hanes shirt and boxer-briefs.
I never spend less than $100 on a pair of boots. They must be black. Brown, grey, white, or any other color does not work...
You should try some other colours apart from black. Wearing black all the time is defintiely plain. You could try different kind of jeans too. You sound like you dress like my dad [he's 39]
White is the way to go from black, if you still want to keep it plain. Greys or browns look good on most people too. Navy looks good with brown, ie.e you could try wearing a brown button up shirt with a navy jumper, or something similar, if you want to dress smarter. By black boots, you mean Doc Martens? Other kind of boots have a tendency to look bad on men. If they resemble anything like working boots, then it most likely ruins your outfit. You could try wearing sneakers, plain ones, they don't have to be bright skater ones. Ball caps are a big no-no once you pass 25. Most women despise them. Try wearing smart looking caps like, bowler hats, berets, fedoras, flat caps and gatsbys. [ if you don't know what these are, look them up. ]
yes and no it's important. you don't have to go out and buy an armani suit but if you dress like that EVERYDAY it shows you aren't putting effort into yourself, i.e. "you don't care."
you don't nearly have to go to the same extent that women have to in order to dress up, but have a little pride in yourself and how you present not just yourself but the fact that you are this girl's 'chosen one'. not a lot - just more than "this is my everyday day look and I don't give a rat's ass what other people think".
you've got your "everyday" clothing and then "date" clothing - yes it does make a difference.
now, if you DO try and make an effort and just miss, then ask for her opinion on how to improve - most guys tend to oversize themselves on clothing, like wearing an XL or XXL shirt/pants when they are really a medium. if she starts to get too crazy with spending or money then she has an image issue to deal with.
I guess there is quite a lot of black..and maybe she thinks that is plain - at least for her. If you are able to go in these big shopping houses e.g. Macy's etc. they usually offer this service called "personal shopper". If YOU want to, try it out. I mean you don't necessarily need to buy anything what you don't like. And a good personal shopper keeps your kind of style but makes it look less plain.
But honestly if she "dumps" you already b4 getting to know you (it sounds to me like that) and her only problem were your clothes, than I ask you: is she worth it?
The dress style doesn't seem to me too bad..as long as the clothes were clean, and not worn already a month ago (without changing!) :)
i wouldn't want to date a metrosexual myself. I like to be prettier than my boyfriend. the way you dress sounds nice and decent. the only clothing style I can't stand off the top of my head are the way black guys dress. sometimes it's OK depending on how they pull it off. but I can't stand the XXL clothes they wear. I can say more but I don't feel like elaborating much on that anymore.
I feel like I dress slightly plain and I'm trying to change that. I don't like plain clothes. it just looks boring.
And keep in mind you do not have to spend a lot of money, or wear designer/name brand to have style.
I notice guys who have a good style over guys who dress plain. Like it or not, how you choose to adorn yourself does play a part into your looks. Just like hairstyle, wearing makeup, or a hair cut alters your looks so do clothes. A guy who dresses boring just looks like he doesn't care that much.
Dude, I used to be like you. I didn't like being flashy or anything, but mostly because I thought I couldn't pull it off. Then I started buying some flannel shirts from american eagle, some more blue shirts and polos, and just started to branch out. A girl really appreciates when a guy can dress stylish and not just in some plain black and white clothes. Girls really appreciate looks, and while they may not be as important to them as they are to guys, a girl still wants her man to look good. Someone she can walk around in public with and feel like she can show him off. Tbh, you're style isn't horrible, just maybe a little boring. Try buying a pair of some light jeans, maybe with a tear in the knee, and a light blue polo. It may not feel like you're style, but girls will appreciate it.
hey man, you don't need to worry about how you dress, dress how you want to, what you need to fo is just find a girl that likes how you dress. it might be harder but you'll feel good knowing that you didn't sell out.
