Simply put, women dress to look beautiful. Men dress not to make a mistake. Of Course, one hardly can blame us. We weren't taught any differently. While the fairer sex was brought up thinking of shopping as a sport, we were taught how to tie a tie, how to tie our shoes, and...and...and, well that's about it. So much for a man's education in the finer points of style.
Unfortunately, now you're all grown up and living in a world seemingly obsessed with style. At work, at home, at the gym, on the road, in clubs, in the bedroom. Style matters, almost as much -- sometimes even more -- than substance.
"It's not fair," you cry.
No it's not. Fortunately, it's not too late to discover your personal style. Provided you know where to find it.
Despite what you think, style is not in your closet. Even if you are one of our best customers, the smart, savvy clothes at Men's Wearhouse can only make you look good. Style is as much a state of mind as it is a state of fashion. Feeling good...now that's the heart of style.
So how do you do that?
Well, first you're going to have to do something you usually dread. Go to the mirror. Now take a long, hard...well not that hard...real good look. But before you start tearing yourself to pieces -- no, we're not psychic, everybody does it -- try this tactic instead: Look for the good things. A set of strong shoulders. A pair of high cheekbones, a solid frame, a great smile. Find something you like about yourself. It's there. Other people like you and they've told you why. Remember what they've said, focus on it and believe it.
Look beyond the reflection in the mirror. Are you good at your work? At being a father? A husband? An athlete? Making money? Making friends? Do you treat people fairly, with deference and respect? Can you laugh at yourself? Get on all fours and play with a 3-year-old? Be overwhelmed by the unrequited love of your pet? Are you proud of yourself?
If the answer to any of these is yes, look beyond the hairline you fear is thinning, or the waistline you bemoan is always two inches too wide, and see these traits. They are there. Bring them out. Wear them like a new tie. Pride, not arrogance, and a healthy sense of self-worth are the basis for all style. The awareness of all that you've done and all that you are will give you the confidence to walk tall and with a spring in your step.
At Men's Wearhouse, we will do everything in our power to send you out the world looking the part. But it's just as important that you feel the part. Feeling as good as you look; that's what style is really about. Because when you know who you are, and like who you are, folks will remember who you are. And, of course, what you were wearing.
