How Does A Sharp Dressed Man Live Up To His
Own Style Expectations- Male Fashion Tips Hi! I’m Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real
Men Real Style. Today, I’m going to be answering a question, “How does a sharp dressed man
live up to expectations?” If you haven’t already, please subscribe to
our YouTube channel. By doing that, these videos will come right to you. In addition,
if you like this and if you find it useful, I would appreciate it if you would like it
down below. And if you want to learn more, I’ve got two options for you. I’ve got my
free 47-page e-book on men’s style. It’s great, it’s free, and you can grab that just right
down there. If you want more, I’ve got a 600-page, 400-image, 14-hour premium e-book that comes
with an audio. It’s more like a course and it’s continuously updated. That one, I link
to it down below as well. It’s not free, but it’s well worth it. I get great feedback
from it all the time and I would appreciate it if you purchase it and support my business. All right, guys, this is what we’ve got. “Antonio,
I’m a Nigerian man in my mid-20s and I live in the UK. My brother’s wedding is coming
up in three weeks. I have a drama with colors. For three weeks now, I’ve been trying to figure
out what I should wear. The issue is I get easily heated and sweaty and nervous, and
people know me as a fashion icon at all the companies I’ve worked with whether in Nigeria
or in the UK. People expect me to dress sharp, so what I’m looking to wear is a red suede
jacket with grey and striped pocket handkerchief, big, black colored shirt, dark blue waist
coat, grey or brown fitted pants with either brown shoes and a brown belt, or black shoes
with a black belt. That’s pretty much what I’ve planned on wearing, but I just don’t
know how to test these colors and I’m just worried that I’m not going to look good enough.
Sincerely, Charles.” All right Charles, so there’s a bigger question
here. I mean, your outfit, it sounds — wow! It sounds like it’s got a lot of color. With
your complexion, you can probably pull it off. It sounds a bit color-heavy on top. I
would maybe look at the black shirt with navy combination as a pretty bold thing if you’re
going for width, also the red suede jacket, but you know, I’d have to see them. That’s
the hard thing about colors. You almost have to see them in person. Screens often lie and
there’s a bit of a tint there, but the bigger point I want to hit on is it sounds like you’ve
got a problem of living up to expectations, that you’ve built up this image that “Charles
has to be the best dressed guy wherever he goes. It doesn’t matter what company he’s
at, what event Charles is going to be at, that Charles needs to be the best dressed
guy,” and that’s a dangerous place to be. Let me give you a little bit of example. Maybe
a lot of guys will experience this. When I was in college, there was a group of guys.
I’m not going to name names, but let’s just say that they heard a lot of stories about
how a group of guys before them were awesome partiers. There was always this expectation
to outdo what the people before you did. It’s like, “Oh, they have those stories? What until
you hear what I did. It was even bigger and better.” What happened and what I saw over
a period of time is what you had to do to get the story recognized as an amazing story
had to get bigger and bigger. I mean, how do you top a bunch of guys getting
into a U-Haul with a keg of beer doing keg stands on Interstate 80, going to every strip
club in Eastern Iowa in a period of four hours and then getting basically pulled over by
the cops and getting away with it? I mean, I would hear stories like this, and if you’re
going to try to outdo that, well, you’re probably going to end up hurting someone or going to
jail, and that’s the problem with expectations. By the way, I don’t know if that really happened
or the guys that were involved with that. I just heard that was a story, but in any
case, as expectations go up, the chances of you falling goes up as well. I really think
that “keeping up with the Joneses” mentality is a bad attitude. You need to dress for yourself,
Charles. I mean, it’s important that you dress for respect for the situation and it is your
brother’s wedding, but at the end of the day, be the best you. This is one of those instances when you look
at men who have really established themselves. They’ve got plenty of money, but yet they’re
not necessarily flaunting it because they don’t have to. They realize that there’s no
winner to that game. What I think you should be focusing on are the other aspects of what
it means to be a stylish, well-rounded man. And so, you need to work on your conversation
skills. You need to think about how are your manners. You need to think about how are you
going to help your brother’s wedding and be the best it can be. What are you going to do? Is there something
you can help out to make this experience better for everyone around you? That’s the mark of
a true gentleman, is he’s not the best dressed man when he shows up on an event, but he’s
the man that when people think of the event, it’s like, “Wow! I had a great time,” and
it was probably because Charles was going around and, “I had such a great conversation
with him. He was attending to my Aunt Mae” or whatever. In Nigerian weddings, those things are fun.
There’s a lot of color. There’s a lot of family, a lot of people just meeting and talking.
And if you can be the kind of person that you can take a little bit of weight off of
your brother and everything that’s going on there, you’re going to be remembered a lot
more for that than you are by how you dressed. So Charles, that’s my advice. Yeah, don’t
get caught up in that game and trying to be better every time because it’s a no win situation. All right, guys, hopefully you enjoyed this
video. We’d love to hear from you in the comments. And if you’ve got a question, make sure to

  1. I'd like to think that the lower half of you that viewers don't see is not as (elegantly) dressed as the upper half.

  2. I totally agree, don't worry so much about being a "Big Shot" Someone who tries to wear with style always should wears its outfit with a lil bit of dignity, like Antonio said: even rich guys do not worry so much imitating "Big Shots" always have a little bit of confidence & remember you are at the event for a reason 🙂

  3. There are a couple products that help, Shirt Stays are cumbersome though. There was also another product that was a elastic strap that held your shirt in place so you can tuck it in with it staying in place. Age old trick is to also tuck your shirt into your underwear. Slim fit, Modern Fit or a tailored shirt will also help. This is called "Billowing" in shirts a very annoying problem. Be sure your tucking by pleating the two sides, helps a little.

  4. Never even thought of tucking into my underwear, wow it works really well. I actually saw the "shirt strap" or the strap that goes around your waist, I was actually considering buying that, but inside the underwear works so well if a little bit unsanitary, good thing I never untuck anyway!

  5. I am! Every morning I have to motivate 3 kids (7,3, and 6 month) to get dressed, brush their teeth, and eat breakfast before 8AM! That is my greatest accomplishment:)

  6. Yeah I always found the inside the underwear uncomfortable. Too much fabric around my sensitive goods."Shirt Lock" that was it, I almost bought it but a reviews are not good enough so I will stick to using tape. I use tape to hold my shirt in and then after I get my pants on I take the tape off.

  7. I have a bit of an off topic question. What do you think of a turquoise Ralph Lauren polo shirt with a burgundy colored sweater draped over it, and khaki shorts. My main question is what do you think about the polo and sweater color combination?
