Dress for Success

Posted on 21 September 2011   From Andrea, Need-to-Know

Men give each other bad advice on how to pick up chicks. The circulation of bad advice has gotten so bad, dudes now hold seminars, write books, post youtube videos, repeating over and over their worn out tricks. And as if that was not bad enough– they dress like goons! But seriously guys, I know it sucks. You don’t know exactly what it is you’re doing wrong, or maybe you have a pretty good idea but you don’t know how to fix it.

But trust me– I know EXACTLY what you are doing wrong. I see you guys at the bar dressed wrong, approaching women wrong, saying stupid things, looking nervous and ultimately not getting anywhere.

Dressing wrong or just BAD can effectively kill your swagger. It says to women “ I have no clue what I look like” or even worse “I don’t get out enough to know what would look good on me.” Do you think James Bond would leave the house looking frumpy? The best place to start is to do a little research. What stores are age appropriate for you? Don’t shop in a store where everyone shopping there is 30 years older then you (or 30 years  younger). If you are 25, don’t dress like you are 40. In case you were not aware, every age range has a style. Another good way to know is if the men modeling the clothes you want to buy look about your age. Be aware when you are walking around what kind of clothes guys your age are wearing.

Did you know that the hottest guys on TV don’t dress themselves? As a matter a fact hardly anyone famous does! They pay stylist to do it for them, so trust me– I know it’s not easy. But finding a style that makes you look good will make you feel more confident as well. Dating is a war guys, and you need armor. Not the same old smelly oversized thing you have been wearing for ten years…



  1. Can anyone say funny? Let me be the one to start off by saying that there are so many guys (even girls) who tend to choose the wrong person. This reminds me of the time when I use to be really stupid. You saw that scene where the drunk blonde girls throw up on the guy right? Well imagine making out with a drunk chick and she barfs all over you! Yeah, that’s what happens when you don’t have swag. I know that dressing right is a huge part of that!

    Trust me, I’m not the only one. In a world where digital media is dominating every aspects of our life, we need something like Swagger to remind us how to be social again. My favorite part of the clip was when the hot girl says, “How Dare You!” , and slaps the guy. Lmao! You really, really want to avoid something like that happening to you.

    So here is the million-dollar question: when do I learn how to get Swagger?

  2. Ahhhhh swagger? You either have it or you don’t I guess, but it is always a good idea to try to improve your skills whether you have some or not. My swagger is usually strongest at bars, and of course in Hollywood Bars and never bars west of La Brea, but thats a whole other story that I won’t get into. Some of these clips are sadly reminiscent of guys I have seen kamikaziing to death in flames as they have attempted pick-up lines on girls, and for the record, I agree with the girl who says that pickup lines don’t work on women, at least not any I would usually be interested in, and Thank God I don’t use them. Swagger is a sense of confidence and natural predatorial skills without being too arrogant and self-absorbed. For whats its worth, this show is a great public service for all the lost souls out there who need the guidance, and for the rest of us, you can NEVER have enough swagger so why not learn something you might not know already?

  3. I can agree with this..It took me a while to find out what really looks good on me and understand my STYLE. Its different for everyone and what worked for me is not necessarily whats going to work for you. Experiment I say and have FUN with it. You never know what women are attracted to until you TRY!

  4. its all about the shoes and the watch. those are the first two things girls pay attention to, so make sure they are the best part of your outfit. And remember, no girl wants a guy with some busted up kicks

  5. I’m not really much for the whole bar scene and as a hopeless romantic I tend to rely on a chance encounter to bring a women my way. But you know after quite a few years of being on this earth you find out that life isn’t a movie and that running into a girl at a coffee shop in a head on collision causing cups to fly, fuels anger rather than love. And even if that moment does happen to present itself, will your words run smooth or will they fumble causing a blown opportunity?

    At the end of the day, what do you say? What do you do? This lack of preparation and knowledge of what a girl really wants has hindered my ability for something more and greater to evolve. Resulting in a rather dismal report card leaving me to wonder if only I had found out about “How To Get Your Swagger” sooner would I have a report card worthy of hanging on the fridge? The answer is simple. Yes!

  10. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
