Let's get into it…
1. A Slim Wallet
Every man needs a wallet, but what makes a slim one special?
Picture a regular-sized wallet packed with cards and bills. Now, picture sitting down for a while with it in your back pocket.
It sucks, right?
Gents, save yourself from potential back problems down the road. A slim wallet is great for a few cards and some bills to get you through the day, just without the self-inflicted agony.
2. Hair Product
This one's a no-brainer because most men use it. However, the secret lies in finding the right hair product for you. Just refer to the chart below:
Whatever you do, the local climate should influence your decision. Pomades are great, but they smother your scalp and make your head even hotter. If you're in the sun, sweat mixed with chemicals might drip down into your eyes…
Who wants that?
Instead, opt for a fiber or clay – these offer superior breathability.
3. Shirt Stays
I've spoken about this “men's style secret” a ton of times. These are among the most potent tools any man can have.
Simply clip one end to your shirt and the other to your socks. You'll never have to worry about tucking your shirt back in again.
4. The Right Razor
Straight razors, safety razors, electric shavers…
Decisions, decisions, decisions…
At the end of the day, it all comes down to you. There are ups and downs to each, and you need to decide which serves your skin the best.
A straight razor is the sharpest blade, but if you're not focused then you risk a bigger cut. Electric shavers are the safest and easiest to use – especially if you have sensitive skin – just don't expect the closest shave.
5. A Signature Scent
This men's style secret is lesser-known…
Did you know that no matter what fragrance you get, your unique chemistry will produce a one-of-a-kind smell with it? This means that no matter what cologne you go with, your scent is your own.
On top of that, fragrances with high musk and floral scents have been proven to increase confidence in men. The right cologne can do wonders for a man's first impression and his self-confidence.
Want your nice, expensive dress shirts to stay free of wear and tear? Then you need to start wearing undershirts if you aren't already.
Not only do they protect the outer shirt from sweat and grime, but they prevent your nipples from showing through. That's always nice, isn't it?
Undershirts will save your shirts from damage and your nipples from flashing.
Instead of going white, I recommend peach or gray shirts. These are less vibrant and thus don't show up as much beneath your dress shirt.
7. A Pen… With Weight!
If you write often or sign forms on a regular basis, this men's style secret is for you.
Yes, we all use pens, but most of us use flimsy pens bought in bulk.
If you whip out a heavy pen that you invested some money in, it'll convey a sense of authority… to you, and anyone who witnesses it.
What I love about suspenders is that even though they're usually hidden, they serve as a great way to introduce color and patterns to your outfit while still being appropriate for most occasions.
But, why am I including them in a list of men's style secrets?
They're especially good for bigger men. Belts do their job best when your waist is slimmer than your hips. Since this doesn't apply to heavier guys, it means they can expect to be retucking all day.
Suspenders are not only more stylish, but they eliminate that problem entirely.
9. Nose Clippers
This goes out especially to you tall guys out there. The last thing anyone wants to see when they look up is a garden sprouting out your nostrils.
Using this tool for a few minutes every few days will significantly refine your look.
10. Tie Clips
Tie clips are a wondrously versatile tool. Not only does it fulfill a purpose by keeping your tie in place, but it's also a work of art.
You can get tie pins in many kinds of colors, shapes, and overall designs. Nothing, however, beats the simple tie bar. It's appropriate for business, AND it adds some pizzazz to your outfit.
When it comes to style, there are subtleties and tricks men employ to be the best-looking man in the room no matter where they are and what they're wearing.
Now, you can too!
