9 Tips for Young Men

It’s important to note that it is worth paying some attention to your clothing as a young man even if you’re working in a field without strict dress codes. Crisp, clean, and well fitted clothing – wherever you are at in the world – encourages others to take you more seriously.

Below are 9 Tips for Dressing sharp as a young man.

Tip #1 for Sharp-Dressed Young Men: Dress Your Footwear Up

Starting from the ground up, appropriate-fitting footwear is the first step to dressing sharp. A traditional school of thought that’s still alive and well claims you can judge a man by his shoes. If you’ve never owned really good shoes before, brace yourself and get ready to pay a significant amount of money for well-made, classic footwear. You may be shocked at the sticker price for well-crafted shoes, but the quality and comfort pay dividends down the road. A good pair of dress shoes will last you years and stay good-looking with nothing more than some light cleaning and the occasional shine. Quality leather footwear isn’t a luxury for the excessively rich — it’s a necessity for any man.

Tip #2 for Sharp-Dressed Young Men: Dress to Look Older

The way you dress is the way you are perceived. If you’re still wearing clothes that scream “student days” you’re going to be treated like a boy with no experience in the real world. Buck the trend, age your look a little, and get the respect you deserve from older men. That means raiding your wardrobe and getting rid of the majority of your ultra-casual clothes: T-shirts, cargo pants, jean shorts, sweatshirts and sweatpants, baseball hats, and athletics. Save a few for yardwork and exercise — but donate the rest of it to charity and start replacing it with dressier clothes that speak to your maturity.

Tip #3 for Sharp-Dressed Young Men: Ignore Fashion Trends.

Main-stream fashion trends change too fast to make useful wardrobe staples. Most young men don’t have the budget to buy new pants every month or two — so stay away from pants that are only presentable during an “in” season. Distressed or bleached jeans are a great example; several different designer labels briefly managed to sell the image on the public, and then the fad changed and left a lot of people with very expensive jeans too beat-up to wear in public. Stick to classic clothing staples for the core of your wardobe and avoid anything that’s too far out on the cutting edge — even if you see something that makes it look good.

Tip #4 for Sharp-Dressed Young Men: Take Care of Your Clothing.

Generally speaking, being young means having less money to throw around. That means making your investments last. If you’ve shelled out for a few pieces of good, quality clothing — a custom suit, a pair of expensive dress shoes, what have you — it’s worth a few bucks more to keep the clothes in good shape. That means using good hangers for your suits, shoe trees for your shoes, and a little tender loving care with the washing machine.

Some of your clothes can come from thrift shops, if you’re lucky enough to have a reasonably common body type and some well-to-do neighborhoods nearby. A few adjustments from a tailor can turn a five dollar thrift-store suit into your dress wardrobe staple. Just take care of it and protect your bigger investments with some proper maintenance!


I buy dress shirts

I'd recommend Men's Wearhouse for basics. Their prices are reasonable, around $35 - 40 for pretty good quality shirts, sometimes much better than more expensive shirts I've bought at Macy's and Banana Republic. Take a look at the non-iron shirts. They cost more but hold up better over a year or two of wear, and they can be laundered instead of dry cleaning.
Take a look at Brooks Brothers for nicer shirts. They're not exactly cheap, but the fabric and construction of the shirts is very good, so they look great all day.
The smaller measurement is the circumference of your neck and the longer one is your sleeve length

A lot of natal women dress more or less

Especially younger ones- jeans, t-shirts, tank tops, hoodies, tennis shoes, flip flops, etc. are all pretty unisex...I think the idea that a non-ambiguoussly "girly" manner of dress using traditionally women-only apparel is necessary to being a woman tends to be espoused by people from older generations who grew up when that was the case.
I have also found that there are quite a few people who find androgyny attractive, and who aren't afraid to say so..I've had way better luck in finding women who think I'm attractive as an androgyne than I ever did when I tried to be either a guy or a girl

    I'm 5'8 155 ibs, so dress shirts are way too baggy in the sleeves and waist. Thus, I need slim fit shirts for under $50 which rules out having them custom fit. I'm aware that H&M have athletic fit shirts for $40 - does anyone have any other suggestions?

    • Try this shirt from Macy's. It is $45.
