You know that guy who walks into the room and looks like he’s got it together, but people can’t quite put a finger on why?
That’s probably one of our guys.
Over half of our clients are men who come from industries like finance, media and tech. Over the past ten years, as our business has grown, we’ve found more men want to work with a personal stylist. In fact, we recently looked at the make up of our private clients for image consulting, and found that they were evenly split between men and woman. But we’re not just talking about corporate C-level men or high net worth individuals. A lot of our men are working guy guys from all different businesses and lifestyles. And what all of them realized at some point is that if they wanted to get to the next level, they needed to step up their style game. Problem is, they really don’t know how to on their own.
We help men figure it out. We help them find their true personal style, regardless of their size, business or lifestyle. So often men just don't know where the right stuff is and just like a man they don't ask. (Sorry guys, it’s true.) It’s harder for men than women - women are always asking each other, “where did you get that that's so cute where can I find it, what brand is that?” Men, they don't ask. And it’s not that guys don’t get it—they do, and they know when they see a guy who's done it right, but they don't know how they did it. Our job as personal stylists for men is bring them through that secret door to the right piece, the right cut, the right brand for them and image they're trying to project. One of our men clients said he was hooked when heard us say "Don't you just want to be that guy who when you walk in the room people notice you—they don’t know why you just look right, just that you do?”
So, if you’re still wondering if you should hire a personal stylist for men, here’s 5 more reasons why you should.
1. LET ‘EM GO, MAN.
We’ll help you purge your wardrobe of clothes that no longer fit or are relevant to your lives (that college tracksuit has to go, dude.) Ditto for the shoes and the t-shirts and the hoodies and sweaters. Taking away reveals not only the holes in your wardrobe, but the beginnings of your style.
2. WE MAKE SHOPPING FUN (OR AT LEAST LESS PAINFUL.).
A great personal stylist for men knows not only what’s out there, but also what’s out there that will work for you. Let’s say you’re a big guy, maybe even a little (or a lot) overweight. Shopping has been a painful experience for you. We have lots of experience and the resources to ease your pain while bringing out your personal style.
3. STYLE, NOT FASHION
Let’s clear up the misconception between fashion and style, ok? Having a great personal style isn’t about being fashionable. Style is much more internal and long lasting than buying what’s hot this season. Especially for men in the corporate world, upping your style is a subtle thing. Better cut suits, cleaner lines on your suits, better cut shirts, quality accessories and shoes.
4. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SHOES.
It’s all starts with the shoes. Great clothes and bad shoes equals bad style. No way around it. Good shoes, like these Crockett & Jones, cost money, true, but they also last and look great longer than not good shoes. Even your kicks should be quality. Leather sneakers are more grown up and look dope.
5. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
People will look at you differently, at work and on the street. People will make comments about your new personal style. You will just smile, knowing your dirty little secret will be kept in the vault. All you have to say is, “Thanks”.
Could a personal stylist be the thing that’s missing in your life? Maybe 2019 is the year to find out. Because really, what do you have to lose, except going unnoticed?
