Every man can be forgiven for lazing around in their holey, faded tracksuit pants and wife beater on a lazy Sunday afternoon – but there comes a point when that look really won’t pass.
We’d love to say we love you whatever you wear – and we don’t expect our men to dress up in their best outfit every single day – but let’s face it, we do have standards.
As relationships progress these standards tend to drop (and we’ll admit, it is from both sides), but it would be nice if some effort was made once in a while to at least remind us why we were attracted to you in the first place.
Every woman obviously has their personal preference when it comes to male fashion, but there are some generalizations that we can safely make. Firstly (and most importantly), we don’t like our men to be better dressed than us. There’s nothing less appealing than a man who’s more up-to-date with Versace’s Spring/Summer collection than Anna Wintour herself (that’s the editor of Vogue for all you non-fashionistas).
Don’t get us wrong, we like our men to make an effort; we just don’t like it to look like they’ve made an effort. Confused? The key is to keep it simple; every woman will tell you that there’s nothing sexier than a nice, plain white t-shirt and a well-fitting pair of jeans. Now getting back to fit. Fit makes a huge difference when it comes to looking good. You can have the most expensive pair of jeans going, but if they don’t fit right you may as well get back into your track pants.
So where do accessories come into this? Accessories are very important and they may seem insignificant to you, but trust me – women take note. Let’s start with your wallet. We’ll assume your wallet will be making quite a few appearances, particularly in the early dating stages, so you need it to look nice. Get rid of your Velcro, 90’s surf-brand wallet and give yourself a more mature look with a nice leather wallet. Leather wallets look classy, distinguished and refined. You don’t need to lose your personal style when it comes to leather wallets either – they come in all colors, sizes, shapes and designs – so go crazy!
Finally we shall address the all important underwear question. Boxers? Briefs? Commando?? Every woman has their preference, but one thing we can be sure of is that your silky, Homer Simpson boxers you got from your Aunt for Christmas are never okay. Lounge around the house in them, wear them to the pub with the guys – but never be under the impression that they are sexy.
It may seem obvious, but your underwear should be clean and you need to know when they’re past their use-by-date. If there are any holes or the color has faded/white has turned into a grey tinge – then it’s time to say goodbye. If you’re not quite sure what undies to buy you can never go wrong with some tight, white boxers. You don’t need to spend a fortune either, you can get stylish boxers at a price that’s wallet – friendly.
