To me there is nothing more attractive than confidence, and a man in a tailored clean cut suit. Reading the 50 Shades novels has really got me thinking about why in hell is there not more stylish men out there?! You really have no excuse in my opinion. Your wardrobe doesn't have to have the same variety as a stylish woman's. I'd say 3 or 4 nicely tailored suits could take you in a number of different directions. Take note from the example below...

#1 piece of advice, GET A GOOD TAILOR! Sometimes you don't even need one. If you buy a nice suit from a prestigious store like Bloomingdale's or Neiman's they already have tailors in house. 

And for heaven's sake wear the right colored belt and shoes!!!!

Obviously accessories are where you can break it up a bit. There is no end to a good supply of ties, belts, shirts, watches and even nice dress socks! You get an A+ if you go the extra mile to cuff links and a tie clip (then I might be a little intimidated haha). 

Or even a nice pocket square. 

Introduce some color. Real men wear pink/yellow/purple right!

 The whole thick framed spectacles thing kills me right now.

 Love the tie, such a good combo. 

Beanies, yum!

That Hugo cuts a nice suit. 

Any of you out there see the movie CRAZY STUPID LOVE with Ryan Gosling? Steve Carell is taken under Ryan Gosling's wing (professional wing man haha) to go shopping to give him a better look, when Carell pulls out his wallet to pay you hear the sound of velcro ripping. Boys, just don't do it! Along with the digital watch...unless you are training for a triathlon I don't want to see that crap on your wrist!

Now my expectations are not so high to the point where I expect you to drive an Audi R8 like Mr. Grey's character in 50 Shades, it's just a plus. I'm happy enough if you just keep it clean and make your car payments like any responsible man would. 

It doesn't hurt to be all "hearts and flowers" every once in awhile either.... ;D
