That is tip #1

Next tip, match your socks to your pants. Buy nice shoes and keep them clean. Get a nice watch. women will notice those three things whether they realize it or not. Wear simple ties that dont jump out. Dont be afraid to spend a whole day shopping for the right pair of jeans. Once you do that, the next time all you have to do is go buy that same pair. But women love a guy in the right pair of jeans (well my wife likes mine anyway lol)

So it doesn't matter what you wear, its how you wear it and how it fits and if it matches what else you have on. Lastly, subscribe to GQ. This is all stuff I absorbed from the magazine (hopefully I absorbed it right lol).
Good to see a guy in this country who gets it! It's not particularly common, unfortunately... But there's a wife behind! Would've given you all kudos if you were single, but it's likely that the lady taught ya....

And, guys, there's nothing wrong with wearing good masculine fragrance! There really isn't! It does NOT bite! As a matter of fact, somebody just MAY bite ya as a result! And, yes, lose the baggy pants and the stupid baseball caps in any shape, form, or direction! OK, I'm foreign-born and may not be in the majority... perhaps you shouldn't be listening to me...

if you want to know the truth, my wife is a fashion mess. well she was, she's gotten better, but its the other way around - i've had to step up my own game pretty much to help her out lol. everything i've learned is just from observation of others and reading magazines and stuff.

Just dress well and look good. Look clean.

It's impossible to say what women are going to be attracted to. I have a friend who loves beak noses on men. She just finds them sexy and cute. And I mean this truly-- these things attract her.

You can't go wrong with clean, in my book. That's about it.

When somone mentions that a look is current fashion, I always have to say that style is way more important than fashion. I have been looking at men for a very long time (apologies to my husband, but I just look) and classic, well-fitting clothes impress me every time. I am not a fan of bright colors - ever! So unless you're at a football game wearing team colors, tone it down. There has been a lot of great advice here about good haircuts, great accessories and grooming. So the only thing I would add is wear the best quality fabrics you can afford, well cut shirts and pants, classic leather shoes (unless you're wearing athletic wear), neutral colors (this can include shades of plum, teal, gold etc.) and minimize the patterns. A look I especially admire is black slip-on shoes, charcoal wool slacks, and a thin black V-neck cashmere sweater over a neutral tee shirt.

Nice jeans that fit in the butt. Layering.... Button down shirts with a blazer... things like that. Well groomed equals lots of chicks!

No pleats on pants. Don't tuck in your shirt (I know someone else told you that you should tuck but I disagree, untucked it much hotter and less stodgy) (dress shirt with suits of course should be tucked). If you're bald to George Costanza magnitude, shave it all off - totally bald is very sexy.

That'd be a matter of perception.
