A Night out on the Town!

Tip #1. Look and smell clean. The five o'clock shadow is ok if it fits you. Use cologne sparingly, check under your fingernails for dirt. There is nothing worse then a man with dirty fingernails.

Tip #2. Dress in layers. Try a collared shirt, either button-down or polo, beneath a casual jacket. Or wear a T-shirt under a crew or V-neck sweater. There are spring /summer sweaters, so you won’t have to worry about sweating all evening. A mock or full turtleneck can also look stylish. Throw in some casual shoes/sneakers with this combination, and you will definitely set your self apart form others.

Tip #3. Experiment with how close-fitting your shirts, pants and sweaters are. Too fitting can give off the wrong impression. Same rule applies as well if too loose.

Tip #4. Wear jeans, khakis or slacks, depending on how casual the outing is. Flat-front pants look more casual than those with pleats. Pleats have also become obsolete FYI. Unless your going for the 1975 Wall street look.

Tip #5. Remember that pants should be long enough to drape comfortably over the tops of your shoes without scraping the ground. If you are wearing a nice pair of pants/jeans why ruin the bottom because you have been walking on them all night. Plus you will avoid looking like your going to your last period class in High School.

Tip #6. Select socks tastefully: If you insist on wearing white athletic socks rather then some sort of unique design, at least don’t wear them with a non-sneaker shoes. Here is some advice, a man’s socks say a lot about his personality. As minute as socks may be, they are definitely a difference maker.

Tip #7. Women love a man that has a beautiful smile. Rembrandt 2-Hour Whitening Kit is a product that you may want to look into. It is painless and affordable. $19.32 at Walmart, you can’t beat that price. Your smile will be noticed across the room, and you will be known as the guy with the “Nice smile”. Carrying breath mints is always a plus, “Nice smile” with bad breath = Ground ZERO!

*These tips will come in handy- Let me know how they work out for you!


  1. Great post. What would you suggest to be a good casual shoe (non-sneaker/boat shoe) that goes well with jeans or casual slacks?
