So it’s a new Year! Woohoo ! Suck it 2016, or as I like to call it the 365day celebrity death match, where some of our favorite celebrities and my favorite musicians got their butts kicked by Father Time and his scythe. Which looking back he probably should have not been allowed to bring into the ring with him. …. But I digress.
So it’s a new year, and it is time for new ideas, new goals and a new you. Right ? Okay forget the gym and the eating right part. You can still have a new you on the outside and you can still look amazing every day. How you ask?
Well with new clothes of course. Look it’s a new year so it probably is time for some new gear too. How do you know?
1 Have you lost weight? Congrats man well done. You’re not still trying to wear the same gear are you? Look if you have lost some weight your clothes are not going to fit anymore so that is a good reason to get new gear. Besides you don’t want to hide the new you in ill-fitting loose clothes. You will just end looking like Kayne. Not a good thing.
2 Have you gained weight? Hey It happens and it’s no big deal, happens to us all man. But if you have gained some weight, your skinny jeans may not be the go-to item any more so another reason to upgrade. Besides tight clothes are not comfortable clothes, and uncomfortable clothes are just wrong.
3 Okay forget the size of your ass for a minute. What if you worked said ass off all year and you got that promotion to the corner office or just to the corner cube, either way it is probably a good idea to retire your khakis and shirts from the Gap and grab a couple of suits and some nicer dress shirts. Oh and congratulations!
4 What if you just knocked last year out of the park like the Chicago Cubs. You earned a promotion AND you lost weight AND you asked Alicia from PR to celebrate with you. You’re going to need some gear worthy of the occasion. Your brown cords and Stars Wars t-shirt will not cut it. And nope your under Armor polo shirt won’t either. I’m thinking a nice black suit, a crisp white shirt, and a nice pair of black boots. Done! Want to really impress Alicia, and get a great table at dinner? Upgrade the shirt to one with French cuffs, add a nice understated pair of cufflinks, and add a pocket square for the jacket. Done.
5 Last reason to upgrade your gear? Ummm you’re an adult and you want to! That is my reason every week. Honestly, you don’t need a reason to buy some new shirts, or updated jeans or even that nice blazer that would look great on Casual Fridays. (not a thing by the way)
So those are some very real reasons to upgrade your gear. And it doesn’t have to cost a lot either. A big part of Real Gear 4 Real Guys is real cost. Hit me up and let’s figure out ways I can help you manage that gear.
