She wants you to dress better

Is your wife or girlfriend always nagging about how you dress?

Does she often make not-so-subtle hints that you should try to look a little nicer for ‘date night’?

Has she ever taken matters into her own hands and actually thrown away clothing items from your closet (probably without you even knowing)?

Women absolutely love it when their men look good and to be completely blunt, sometimes the men in our life are just a bit clueless when it comes to fashion. And it’s not that she loves you any less because of they way you dress but when you look good, we look good together!

As a mens stylist and image consultant, the most common complaint I get from women is that their significant other dresses too ‘casual’ and getting him to upgrade his wardrobe has been like pulling teeth but they would really love it if he’d step things up a notch in the style department.

Single guys included…if you want to up your game, you have to dress the part. Dressing well increases your level of attractiveness. Now, this doesn’t mean you need to look like you just stepped off a runway, but a little fine-tuning is where I come in. So I want to offer a few of my styling tips that will impress her!

1. Fit
When it comes to improving style, fit is what really matters not so much the cost of the clothes. Men sometimes get stuck in a rut wearing the same clothes you’ve had for years! The right fit changes the whole look. Take jeans for example, you have to get used to a more updated fit. But once you start wearing the ones that actually fit, that pair will become your new favorite andyou won’t want to go back to the baggy, out-dated pair you used to wear.

2. Color
More often than not, I open a client’s closet and all I see is one drab color story. It’s definitely important that a guy has his standard grays, neutrals and blues as these are the most versatile and easiest to match up but try to throw a little color into your wardrobe mix. A brighter blue or a lighter shade of purple can make your outfit pop. Once you start getting compliments, believe me you won’t want to go back to blah!

3. Basics
There are few items that I always recommend as the foundation of any man’s wardrobe. So if you plan on buying new clothes, these are the items worth investing in:

  • Clean, dark denim jeans
  • Cotton chinos or 5 pocket pants in basic colors
  • Well-fitted, stylish blazer
  • Well-fitted dress shirts
  • White & gray v-neck t-shirts
  • Fitted polo shirts
  • Quality brown leather shoes
  • Brown leather belt to match the shoes
  • Bold pattern dress socks
  • Stylish sneakers


4. Donate

When helping a client go through his wardrobe, we talk about what’s working and what’s not. Whatever is a ‘must get rid of’, I always suggest to donate. You can also order a bag from and sell your items for a little extra ‘night out’ cash. Done.

Once you start wearing your updated looks, let the compliments keep rolling in!

‘Reboot’ your closet

Do you actually wear that?

January has finally kicked in this blistery winter chill and it’s just too damn cold to venture outside without at least 5 layers on. I’m challenging you to stay inside with some hot cider (make mine spiked) and answer the dreaded question, “What’s in your closet?” Who knows, maybe you will even find some extra cash you stashed in your pants’ pocket months ago!

No, but really…when is the last time you actually took a look at what is hiding in there? Do you have a jacket that’s too tight or too loose? (Neither of which are very flattering.)  Shirts with too much fabric at the waist? (Let’s fix that!) How about a hand-me-down a relative gave you that doesn’t even fit but you felt obliged to keep? Or worse… do you have clothes from the 90’s still hanging around?!


How I helped my client save money with his wardrobe…

We took a look in his closet and found that he had too many pieces in the same color, making him look washed out. He had multiple suits, many of them outdated that were making him look both old-fashioned and older than he is. Worst of all, the fit was off; his clothes were swimming on him!

Once we went through it all (about 2 hours later), we discussed what to keep, tailor, donate and most importantly what made him look great. I then took those items and created about 30 customized looks using his current wardrobe!

That’s 30 times he can go without having another person say “Didn’t you wear that the last time I saw you?” All put together from his own closet!

Afterwards I sent him a bunch of photos in a digital file so he can reference his newly customized looks anytime. I also sent a series of links to items he can add to his wardrobe that are cost-effective and compliment his current wardrobe.

The whole experience was like Extreme Home Makeover but for one’s wardrobe and best part, you don’t have to win a makeover on a talk show to be able to afford it.



If you think it’s time to ‘reboot’ your wardrobe, just shoot me an email and we’ll get it set up.

I look forward to working with you! Drop me a line here.

Yours truly,
