Even if you’re overweight, the way your clothing fits will still have a huge impact.
When I packed on the pounds I tended to either wear clothing that was too small (which I used to get into) or clothing that was too big (to hide that beer gut and those moobs).
All in all I thought being overweight meant whatever I wore wouldn’t look good.
Again I was wrong.
Knowing what to wear and how it should fit would completely transform the way others saw me.
So focus on fit, got it?
The second piece of advice is quality is more important than quantity.
Think about your wardrobe right now...
How many items are in there?
Think about all the t-shirts, the jeans, the trousers, the shirts, the jackets, the coats, the suits, the underwear and the socks... even your shoe collection.
How many items of clothing do you still own that you haven’t worn recently?
Looking back I used to have a wardrobe bursting with clothing but I only used to wear the same few outfits on rotation.
Improving the way you look and feel as a man is all about investing in the right clothing, rather than buying too much of the wrong clothing.
As soon as I realised this I started to spend my money more wisely.
Think about it...
You might go and spend £20 on a shirt.
You’ll wear that shirt on a night out, you might wear it again a week later and maybe a few times after that but you soon start to resent the fact that you’re wearing the same shirt over and over again.
Not only that but because you bought a £20 shirt that wasn’t made well with every wear and with every wash it’s starting to look ready for eBay.
That shirt gets stored away in your wardrobe and you go out and buy another shirt, repeating the process.
I used to do this with every item of clothing I owned.
Now if we worked out the math it would work like this...
On average a £20 shirt I would wear 20 times. That’s £1 spent for every time I wear it.
