So as ProFraternity Organization Chair for Continuous Education I know a think or two about dressing well. Being a man is never an excuse for you to dress sloppily. That’s according to SonicSeduction.net (a ProFraternity partner) guide to dating. Dearest, sure you do not need to look like a Hollywood celebrity, but if you want to impress the ladies, dressing well and properly is a must. Oh, and don’t go on lecturing me about beauty being skin deep. Girls can really not tell how great your brain is the first time they see you.

Here are some of the most basic, most useful fashion tips for men on clothing (PS: this one’s for everyone and you don’t exactly have to be a fashionista to appreciate these tips. Trust me, you’ll thank me for this. You’re welcome):
With clothes, you should always wear your size and make sure you’re comfortable in them.
To start with always dress your size. I am 101% sure that oversized clothing is the most comfortable thing to wear next to thy birthday suit but please, don’t go out in something that would have been Yao Ming’s! Don’t go undersized either! I remember rather vividly the 90s was the age of the body hugging, belly baring shirts and the early 2000s were the age of the capri pants and in both eras, they were for women. You’re not a woman, you’re not in the 90s or in the 2000s, so I don’t see a reason why you should wear a shirt that once belonged to you in Kindergarten, and pants that are too long to be your shorts but are too short to be your trousers. So dress your size.
Next to remember; always go for comfort. Just because Kanye West wears leather jackets 99.9% of the time means you have to do the same! Not in a 40-degrees Celsius kind of summer day silly! Go for comfort first, style second. So find something that’s fashionable but you’re comfortable wearing. You can never look good in something that makes you uneasy.
Don’t forget to experiment every once in a while. Keep a versatile wardrobe for different kinds of days. You can’t possibly take your coats and tuxedoes on a baseball game date, unless you’re from ESPN and you’re a commentator. Neither can you wear your football jersey replica to a 5-course dinner meal with a fancy date. And you can’t wear your jeans to the beach. So keep a little of everything.
Be sure to learn to mix and match. Last year’s summer shirt may not be ‘in’ the trend of this year’s autumn, but maybe you can mix and match it with some coat for a laid-back but still formal-esque look? Or maybe you can tone down your formal office coat to go with your acid-wash jeans and some leather shoes? Just remember that when mixing and matching, there should always be one article on your outfit ensemble that serves as the focal point. It should get all the attention and the rest should be the entourage, complementing and highlighting it.
And finally remember, being fashionable does not make you any less manly. Fashion is a mindset and attractiveness is an attitude which women love in men. Bear this in mind, pair it with some great outfits, and you’re ready to rock the dating world and be one hot single! Good luck!
