Fashion is the process of raising one's SMV by buying clothes that look well-made, modern, expensive, and or form fitting. The goal is to dress like one of the popular people in the area, whether in school or in town. Observe what they are wearing and try to mimic that.
But do not go overboard with style because that does not look cool, due to trying too hard. Do not dress like a fashionista. Most fashionistas are not one of the popular kids.
Fully committing to a stereotypical look such as only wearing athletic gear, or only goth outfits is just try-hard, and popular people don't try hard at all. Again, over-styling does not create the impression of a popular, cool guy, just an impression of a loser who's interested in fashion.
Fashion or style per se is now what women like; what women like is the impression that a guy is one of the popular kids.
So the best way to get fashion advice is, ironically, from the popular people in the area. Not fashionistas or "image consultants." Do not fall into their trap.
Fashion shows that a man belongs to a group, whether the popular kids, the jocks or the nerds, so gang membership tatoos are fashionable, but again do not try too hard, to appear like part of the group.
Be aware of regional trends. What the popular people dress in one area is not what the same they dress in another area.
Not all regional styles are recognized. But most people do know what Hollywood celebrities wear. So dressing like a "Hollywood celebrity" would be safe.
Also fashion not only varies among location, but also among age group. School-aged people dress differently than others.
Another mistake associated with overstyling is not dressing like the person's age group. Often old men dress young. This looks rather out of place and the man will be an assumed loser just trying to fit in; not one of the genuine popular kids. The guys too old to be one. Remember, what women like is the impression that the man dresses like one of the popular kids.
Designer-labeled clothing[edit | edit source]
Designer-label clothing signal socioeconomic status. Wearing knockoff clothing lowers socioeconomic status. Therefore knockoff clothing makes is less attractive, irrespective of how "stylish" they look.
Women themselves are highly status-oriented. They therefore emphasize brands very strongly. This is evident by their obsession with shoes and handbags. Some women spend more money on shoes or handbags than on their clothes.
How people judge fashion[edit | edit source]
Bright colors may be perceived as feminine. Dark colors may signal dominance or masculinity. Buttoned shirts, collared shirts, and pocketed shirts may convey a image of authority or prestige.
"Fashion is about expressing one's self"[edit | edit source]
This is a stupid saying from women. In reality, following fashion is following what the popular people dress. So "expressing one's self" is rather limited.
Style alone could not attribute a personality, but mimicking the style of another person, can. For example, mimicking the style of Taylor Swift, to have a "country girl" personality. Mimicking the style of bikers by having tattoos and wearing leather jackets, to have a DOM personality. Mimicking the style of, say, a famous rapper, to have a "hip hop" personality.
What "dress to express one's self" really means is "dressing like a famous person." In other words, "expressing one's personality" by dressing like a celebrity with a similar personality.
Since people are limited to what the celebrities or popular people wear, people only have a limited array of options to choose from.
F.O.B's and Fashion[edit | edit source]
Ethnics who are fresh off the boat have a load of negative stereotypes. They are assumed to be outcasts. They're assumed to not to be as popular as the equivalent white guy, unless dressed a certain way. Fashion is, arguably more important for ethnics with thick accents.
F.O.B's themselves often cannot tell if a person is popular or not by their style. So they are weak judges of another's status.
Fashion is complicated[edit | edit source]
As of 2014, denim jeans are in-style, but denim shorts are out-of-style. Denim shorts have the opposite effect making one look like a nerd.
Similarly, khaki shorts are in style, khaki trousers are out-of-style. Just the leg-length would make the difference between being perceived as a normal guy versus a nerd.
The fabric or the leg-length itself does not make style, but the overall appearance. In fashion, the sum is greater than the parts. So people must be careful about combining things, like shoes and pants. The wrong shoes with the right pants would make someone look like a loser, even if both the shoes and the pants themselves are in style.
Stylish grooming[edit | edit source]
Being well-groomed and having hygiene matters a lot in attracting women because that is the style right now.
Safe outfits for the unfashionable[edit | edit source]
Because what brand is hot right now is super subjective, color co-ordinated outfits can be used to be fashionable, without having to buy unnecessarily expensive brands. All white outfits tend to make a person be perceived as *holy* *good-natured* *well mannered* and *likeable*, all positive characteristics.
Incels are notorious for wearing greys and dark blues. So much so that outfit has become a meme. The whole point of wearing these colors is to not stand out, or draw attention but this actually just makes incels stand out more, cuz they're wearing a uniform.
Near all white outfits with a splash of dark purple are considered extremely stylish and denote swagger. For example, all white button down dress shirt, dark purple straight leg jeans, and some all white gym shoes, are a great way to make a positive fashion statement. White out and near white out-fits are ideal for those that rank from Incel to Chadlite.
Obviously Chad looks good in anything, no matter how ridiculous, and thus is often the first one to start fashion trends. Ironically the same greys and dark blues incels wear, actually *enhance* dominance and masculinity when worn by a Chad. An all black fit on a Chad or Giggachad maximizes the perceived dominance and masculinity. An all or near red outfit is perceived as sexy, sexually aggressive and sexually dominant, but only when worn by Chad. Incels should avoid both very dark and very bright colors and wear whites, light browns, medium greens, etc. To create a more positive impression on people.
Fashion alone won't get a guy laid, but does make the guy cooler and more likeable.
