Dressing Appropriately is ILL
There is a time and place for everything my dude AND that includes what you wear and when you wear it. How you present yourself in social settings sets the tone for how others will perceive you. In other words son FIRST IMPRESSIONS count. If you have a job interview at a corporate type place wear a navy or grey suit, a date with a fly honie, make sure you look night time fly, a mustache themed house party in Brooklyn, rock the fake stache!
The point is B. how cats perceive you will reflect how they treat you, and if you want to be treated with respect then let it be known you as a grown-ass man know what to wear and when.
I’m walking down 3rd Ave in Manhattan’s Upper East Side and I peep homeboy walking down the street with straight up NO SHIRT on. He didn’t have a shirt tied around his waist or neck, dude was walking straight topless like he is at Club Med in Montego Bay. Walking in Manhattan topless is never a good look B. Whether you are in shape or got more jelly rolls than a Krispy Kreme no one wants to see all of what you got.
First impression homeboy gave me is “hey look at me, I got no shirt on and I’m carrying a tote bag like I’m on the beach at Montauk, but I’m too broke and to cool to be on the beach at Montauk so I’ll walk around the bougie Upper East Side with no shirt on.” Needless to say dude doesn’t have my respect.
Do yourself a favor and respect yourself in how you dress yourself, and your swag will always shine through no matter what you do!
