If you are reading this, theres a high chance you are over 20 and are looking forward to making yourself a better man – in both character and looks.
Some of you may have clues and there are always others that need a little boost. What we mean? we identified Six (6) things that every aspiring gentleman must adopt in order to make himself (or at least push himself towards) that well respected and admired man he dreams to be.
So without further ado;
1). Visit Your Barber Often.
Have you every finished dressing in these clean clothes then looked in the mirror and thought “damn! If only my hair was sharp”. Guys, gone are the days when you need to turn into a Caveman in order to visit your barber. Welcome to Adulthood where spending often is an attachment. On that note, pass through your barber’s shop immediately you start noticing your hairline fading, or your, well, Fade, fading. Lol. (No seriously).
2). Own At Least Two Bottles Of Cologne.
Hate to break the news but, being a Gentleman is an Investment. You will NEED a Signature scent if you want to become one. Yeah, original fragrances can be quite pricy for your age but you must have learnt how to save (especially for Important things) by now.
Have at least Two of your favorite (identity them) fragrances on your dressing table and don’t forget to freshen yourself up before you use them. You will be amazed at how many compliments and attraction you will get just one week into starting this habit.
3). Own At Least Three Suits.
Nothing speaks “Simple Yet Sophisticated” louder than a ‘Clean Cut Suit’, and it is no lie that most gentlemen have a couple of suits hanging in their closets.
Now about this, we would advise you to do away with cheap fabric. Rather, you can have one of your trusted Designers to measure you up and tailor one for you from scratch, or empty your wallet man, pay for that really good (well fitting) suit you spotted in one of your favorite retail stores. Trust us, it will be worth it.
4). Dry Cleaners Are There For A Reason
So now that you own these suits (and blazers you may have added on top), you will need to have them cleaned up after two days (advisable) of wearing them.
Unless you really mastered the art of cleaning up these pieces by yourself at home, we advise you have yourself one trusted Dry Cleaning Company that you will take your suits and blazers to each time they need cleaning up. That way, you will have them professionally done, and save you time as well.
5). Brush Your Teeth and Tougue.
Yep, you read that right. Your mouth will have to be freshly scented now that you are a gentleman. High chances are you will be looked up to by few guys of younger age and also admired by girls in your circle, so you NEVER want to destroy your whole house made of cards with a bad breathe – COME ON BRO!
(Tip: Develop a Habit of buying fresh, mint chewing gum and having it with you on the go. You will thank us later)
6). Own A Pricy Pair Of Shades.
A cool and quite pricy pair of shades will have you feeling highly of yourself even when you are simply headed to buy a few groceries (just an example).
Being a gentleman is always about adding a little sophistication to the basic things you do. That being said, you ought to save up and buy that signature pair of shades that will add a huge boost to your outfit at a Social Event or even an outing with the boys.
So guys those are the 6 Habits we think you should work on if you want to be that clean and looked up to person. You will be surprised at how addicted you will get in a short time, and how out of place you will start to feel when abandon any one of these few habits we have listed.
