What real men wear
What makes a real man a real man? Let’s put aside the fact that the social norms of being a real man requires strength, reliability and action. A true gentleman takes care of his appearance. Your appearance is the first thing people will notice about you which makes of who you are. Especially in today’s society, men are heavily measured on their style. According to social experiments, it shows the same guy is treated very differently on his different outfits.
From Don Draper to Christian Grey, they have perfectly demonstrated how a suit works essentially in a real man’s life. A suit on a man shows he is confident and takes pride in his appearance. For us ladies, we put two hands up agree that there is nothing more sexier than a man with a well-fitting suit. It is necessary to invest yourself a few tailor-made suits in your wardrobe. A good suit hides your body imperfections and create a V-shape (trimmed waist, bigger shoulders…), which makes you appear more masculine.
Nevertheless, throughout the history our societal placement on a man in a suit is associated with successful career, power, reliability and security. These are the features that makes a real man different from a boy.
