How important is what I wear?
#1
I'm sort of clueless about dressing myself. It's either jeans and a t-shirt or khakis and a button up shirt. Other clothes exist? Help? I think I need to develop some kind of fashion sense to help my chances of getting noticed in the relationship world... or do I?

You're the only one who can hold your head up high,
Shake your fists at the gates saying:
"I've come home now!
Fetch me the spirit, the son, and the father.
Tell them their pillar of faith has ascended.
It's time now!
My time now!
Give me my, give me my wings!"

Don't dress in clothes you aren't comfortable in, Jesse. Try to always be neat in appearance, but don't dress as someone you aren't. Besides... :p a lot of women out there love the challenge of shopping for their men.
lmao, I don't think my husband has actually shopped for his own clothes since just after we started dating. :p
So, either he hates to shop, or I have excellent taste in men's clothing. Big Grin Could be both I suppose, lol!

Lol. I'm simply comfortable in jeans, t-shirt, and tenni's. Smile So I guess it's not so important eh? As long as I look groomed?

Yes, but do dress for the occasion. :p If it's something a little more formal than a rock concert, you might want to consider something a little more refined than the jeans. :p But yes,a neat appearance is important, lol. :p

One's dress is certainly important, but it's important to make sure you're dressed for the time and occasion.

There are certain interviews you wear a full suit and tie to. There are some meetings and gatherings where it's appropriate to wear slacks and a collar shirt. And then there are social gatherings and casual interactions, which for me is where it gets complicated.

Dress how you're comfortable, and dress in what you feel represents you accurately. I wear jeans almost constantly with solid or two-color shirts most of the time, because I like simplicity and practicality. The only logo shirts I have are department shirts, which I usually only wear on duty or at trainings. My shirts are form fitting. Not skin-tight, but they aren't baggy. I frequently wear a ball cap, and it's rare that my shirt is not tucked in; I don't like to appear sloppy. I frequently wear a belt. I wear boots 90% of the time; I'm a worker and they're practical, and don't look ridiculous like I think 'skate shoes' do.

And so you can actually learn a lot about me by looking at how I dress.

That's all I can really offer.

Well if it's more formal I can pull the khakis/button up shirt out of my arsenal. Wink

I think I'm making a lot of progress in other areas eve. I wear smell-goods now and actually do something with my beard other than let it grow like a wild man and shave every other week Toungue. I keep it nice and trimmed. I'm even spikin up my hair now! I wanted to make sure I was wearing the right thing too. Guess I'll stick with what I'm doing until a girl wants to start picking my clothes out lol.

Thanks Brian. What I was really wondering was for something like a date at a dinner/movie type thing. Do I wear the t-shirt with skeletons on it or find a polo shirt? I hate polo shirts.

I do usually wear dress clothes and a tie for interviews except for one instance in which I somehow only had the skeleton shirt and jean shorts... and the shirt had a big red stain on it...somehow I got the job (my current job). Must have been the ole Jesse charm.

Haha, that's awesome about the interview.

If I were going on a date, I would be doing my best to be easy to have a conversation with. Easy to laugh with and feel comfortable around. So choosing from my wardrobe, I'd wear this pair of white cargo pants I have (loose, but not tastelessly baggy) and probably this white/dark blue T shirt I have which is just tight enough to show my pectorals (which from the sounds of your weight loss, you'll be doing soon Wink ). And I'd swap my boots out for something else.

I think predominantly light colors, or light with a contrast, makes you seem more approachable.

If we were going for some kind of walk or hike, I'd dress appropriately for that, though.

That's my next question! I'm using dial magnetic clean rinsing body wash now instead of plain old dial soap. Think that's an improvement? Also what is too much smellies? I use the body wash, deodorant of course and a couple drips of cologne, but if I've got all that on is also applying after-shave gell too much?

Lol yes Brian you've got me there. I've honestly been thinking to myself about how I'll be wearing form fitting clothes once I've got to my weight loss goal. Smile Right now I do wear a little bit baggy clothes because I'm heavy. They're actually getting too baggy now though because of my weight loss. I'm going to have to wear a belt soon to keep my pants up. I don't want to buy any new clothes until I get to where I want to be.

Once I get the weight lost that I want to I'm going to work out a little bit. The shoulders, back, pecs, arms, abs. Smile Gonna be a clean, good-smelling hunk. Big Grin ....wearing a skeleton shirt lol.

Hey man, some chicks dig the skeleton shirt.

Do you shop retail, or have you tried thrift stores yet? You might check it out if you haven't. You get like 2-3x more clothes and most of them are surprisingly nice and not worn out or filthy. The dress shirt for my suit actually came from a thrift store, as have all my jeans.


Also, I'm far from an expert, but I suggest starting your workout with push-ups or chest presses, rowing, pull-downs/chin ups, and then some shoulder and arm exercises. I built some good bulk from that.

I mean, I'm still a twiggy little bastard. But I kinda fill out a shirt now. Toungue
