1. They Look In The Mirror Every Day

No, they aren't narcissistic.

Stylish men do this in order to steal a little extra confidence each day. There's something magical that happens when you get ready for the day and give yourself a final glance before heading out the door.

A single glance at the mirror can do a lot to boost your morale for the day ahead.

Do not underestimate that feeling.


 

2. They Don't Look Like A Trash Bag

Gents, I've said this so many times that I've lost count: FIT IS KING. It is the key factor in my Style Pyramid.

Without well-fitted clothes, you are doomed. You can buy from the best stores with the best fabrics, but you'll look like a trash bag if it doesn't conform to your body.

Make sure everything fits you well so a tailor only needs to make minor adjustments.


 

3. They March To Their Own Tune

Some men's style habits are harder than others – and this is an example of the latter.

Humans want to conform. It's embedded into our genetic code through eons of evolution. That even applies to one's appearance.

Pursue your style no matter what other people are wearing. Set a high standard for how men should look.

A TRULY stylish man is one who understands his “why,” his motive for dressing well. Once he figures that out, the rest is cake. He might dress differently than his friends, but he doesn't care.


 

4. They Wear The Same Clothing Every Day

No, I don't mean literally (I got you though didn't I). What I'm talking about here is a uniform.

This is your go-to look – the combination of clothes that defines you. Personally, my signature everyday look includes a sports jacket, well-fitted jeans, and a dress shirt. It can be as simple as that, gentlemen!


 

5. They Lay Out Clothes Each Night

This is all about preparation and it's a simple concept. Always set out the outfit you plan to wear the next day.

Every second counts in a busy man's day. Why not save a few extra minutes by having an outfit ready?

You'd be surprised as to how much time it saves.


 

6. They Know That Fashion Follows Function

It's another simple concept. If you live in Miami, perhaps avoid a woolen sports jacket. If you live in Nothern England, then linen may not be your immediate priority.

Be smart and make decisions based on practical considerations – be they your job or the climate you live in.

Don't prioritize what looks cool, prioritize what works.


 

7. Paying Respect To Peter

“Antonio, did you just bring religion into style!?”

No, gents, don't worry. I'm referring to Peter Henlein, an incredibly important figure in men's style history.

He invented the very first watch in 1505.

When it comes to men's style habits, few things beat wearing a watch. It sends a powerful statement, it's compact, convenient, and a product of craftsmanship honed over the centuries. Every man should have at least one.


 

8. Brand Names Mean NOTHING To Them

Stylish men do not care about brand names, they care about quality and craftsmanship. If something is made exceptionally well, then it should not matter whether it was made by Armani or by Joseph Abboud.


 

9. Shining Your Shoes Right After Your Wear Them

Shoes – especially quality ones – require regular maintenance. This means leather conditioner, the right brushes, and the right polish depending on the color of your leather.

For goodness' sake though, do not try to shine suede.


 

10. Fighting The War On Wrinkles

This means ironing your clothes – I know, it's not sexy. Nevertheless, wrinkles make even the nicest outfits look rather horrid.

Ironing can be boring, but the results are worth it.

Make sure to iron your shirts once a week. Grab those that you intend to wear throughout the week and knock them out during the weekend.


 

11. They Default To Simplicity

Less is always more when it comes to men's style habits. This means never over-accessorizing or wearing a ton of the same patterns. Restrict yourself to 2-3 accessories as a maximum.


 

12. They Protect The Benjamins

Few things are as unseemly as an overstuffed, shoddy wallet. Always opt for sleek, stylish leather wallets and keep in them only what you need: some cash and your cards.

See how slick and elegant this looks? I thought so.

You can also opt for something as simple as a money clip.


 

13. Their bedroom is NOT a landfill

Organization is the name of the game here. Keep your closet as organized as possible. Do your best to avoid clothing you never wear.

dress shirt rack

Don't keep anything you simply tolerate. Stick with what you LOVE.

Go through every garment you own. If you haven't worn it in 6 months and don't see yourself wearing it in the future, dump it or donate it.


 

14. Owning Multiplication Clothing, Not Addition Clothing

This all falls down to the interchangeable wardrobe, gentlemen. Always make sure that every garment you buy can match with as much of what you own as possible.

Don't start shopping for patterns unless you have 3-4 white and light blue dress shirts. Start with some navy chinos. Opt for a charcoal sports jacket to start with, etc.


 

15. Owning Boxes – Yes, Boxes

For organizing your stuff. Simple, right?


 

16. They Experiment With Hair Products

Different hair products do different things. Gels will give you a shinier, sleeker look.

Putties, however, will offer a matte finish while granting a slightly messier look. The point is to experiment with it all in order to change things up and pinpoint a style that suits you best.


 

17. They Know Their Tailor & Barber

These are the guys that are going to make you look your best no matter what. Be friendly with them, know their names. Visit them often for any fixing you need – whether it be on clothing or that lovely head.

You should visit your barber at least once every two weeks!

They should be as dear to you as any friend!


 

18. Having A Weekly Grooming Routine

Stylish men are always on top of their appearance, and this goes beyond mere clothing. This means washing your face twice a day, shaving, proper nail care, and good hygiene.


 

19. They Love To Smile – And Smell Nice

Going a little deeper into that grooming routine, let's talk about brushing your teeth.

Gents, nothing says ugly like talking and still having crap lodged between your chompers. Brush your teeth twice a day, and use mouthwash.

Having bad breath is enough to take any man's confidence away.

Heck, you can even take mints with you to work. Freshen up before that big presentation!


 

20. Keeping The Hedges Trimmed

Yes, we're still on the topic of grooming. This time, we're discussing the hair.

I can appreciate a thick mane, but keep it under control!

Make sure to clip those nose hairs – because no wants to look at a forest when they look up at you. Don't let your facial hair get out of hand. Even bearded men should take care to ensure everything looks deliberate, not as the result of laziness.


 

21. Spraying On Liquid Confidence

In what way could we have ended this article better than by talking about fragrance? Gentlemen, a good cologne is just as important as a watch. It sets you apart as a man that gives a damn about his look.

Both men and women are affected by it on a psychological level, and there are studies that prove this.

Don't go too overboard, though. One or two squirts should be more than enough.
