FDF Episode 055: Style and Success with Antonio Centeno of Real Men Real Style
In this interview of Style and Success, I discuss with Jay Scott how I started in the military and transitioned into business.
He asked about my interest in clothing and I stated that to be honest, I am not really interested in clothing. I am more concerned about helping the man in the clothes. I am happy to help people while also making money.
He asked me about what I think about fashion and style and the differences between them. Fashion is temporary and will change through time but style is personal and classic.
Jay came to my channel because he wants to avoid choosing clothes that will go out of style in time and he wants to look good so people will trust him to be able to form a business relationship.
We also discussed about first impressions. Dressing sharp gives you the respect that you deserve and people will look at you differently. It gives you the impression of being credible and trustworthy.
Why do some men think that they don’t need to dress sharp? One thing about it is that they are not actually sold into the idea. Most of us have a lot of going on in our life that we don’t see the importance of it until it slaps us in the face.
Jay asked about a system that can be used by men who want to start dressing in style. The answer is first of all, make a commitment in order to start dressing sharp. Light that fire to get things going.
We also discussed about tailoring. Most men need to work with a tailor but if you find a good brand, an off-the-rack suit is also good.
For success, zero in on what’s important and then proceed. Work on your life in individual areas can improve it as a whole.
Here are a few quotes from the interview:
- “It is important to help people but also making a living from it.”
- “Fashion is fleeting. Style is timeless.”
- “Family is the most important. “
