What a man decides to wear says a lot about who he is and how he thinks about the world.

There are many items of clothing and styles that make clear statements as to who you are depending on what you choose to wear. Here are 10 examples below:

 

Gloves

If you’re the type to choose wool gloves over leather, then you might be displaying a low mental age. Wool gloves are for outdoor exercise, leather gloves are a fashion statement.

 

Clothing Fit

Baggy clothes/oversized clothing is another mistake that may make you appear younger than you really are. Getting the fit of your clothing correct is a big tick in terms of how seriously you’re taken by others.

 

Footwear

Any kind of trainers are a risk over a certain age. With so many options such as chelsea boots, loafers, lace-ups, etc, there’s really no reason to not get the footwear right. Of course there are some more streetwear based shoes that can do the job, but formal shoes are a safer bet if you’re looking to increase your maturity.

 

Headgear

Things like baseball caps and bandanas are worn by people under 18. Fedoras and flat caps tend to be worn by men.

 

Shirt Style

If you’re wearing shirts with excessive pockets, patches sewn in and elaborate writing on the back, then you’re going to look like a 16 year old at a school disco. A man’s shirt should be simplistic, sturdy and well-fitted.

 

T-Shirt Style

Walking around with the name of a band on your t-shirt or an image of space invaders isn’t going to give the impression that you’re mentally mature. Men’s t-shirts should be plain and brand-free. Small logos on the chest and similar styles don’t do men any favours.

 

Watch

Sports watches, fake watches or child-like watches are obvious to spot. Get a watch that uses mature colours, is of a decent value and has an element of class about the design.

 

Brands

If you’re wearing the same brands that school kids are wearing then you’re going to have issues. There’s millions of 16 year olds wearing sports brands, but very few have heard of the adult orientated brands. This is because the adverts aren’t aimed at kids, therefore the right kind of people end up wearing them which is the image that the brands aspire to.

 

Wallet

Anything with a velcro strap, sports team or comedy statement on should be avoided. Make sure you opt for a well-made leather wallet. You don’t want to be at a bar next to a group of women and using a velcro wallet to pay with. That noise is hard to hide!

 

Layering

One big statement towards your perceived age is how you decide to layer. When things get cold, if you opt for hoodies and sesame street sweatshirts, then once again people aren’t going to take you seriously. A mature man will reach for the camel coat and knitwear as things get cooler.
