Guys…STOP Dressing Like A Child! 9 Men’s Clothing Items That Make You Look Like A KID

Dress Like A Man
[0:00:00] Stop dressing like a kid, start to dress like
a man. In today’s video, gents, I’m going to
talk about clothing items that make you look like a kid until you had to upgrade those,
so you can start to dress like the man you know yourself to be. Are you ready, guys? Let’s get into it. [Music]
Tip number one. Upgrade the running shoes. Something as simple as going with a solid
color sneaker. White, black, gray, a wide variety of different
options out there. But, I would even recommend stepping that
up even another notch. Look for a casual pair of boots, something
that isn’t glued together using a nice unique upper, in this case blue suede. Now, why stop there though? How about you level it up another notch, bring
in a pair of casual dress shoes, something that when you wear this, you are going to
stand out from the crowd and look great. Tip number two. Upgrade the shorts and blue jeans. Shorts have historically been a boy’s piece
of clothing. In many parts of the world, men do not wear
shorts. Now, blue jeans, they’ve always been casual,
they’ve now become very common and I love a good pair of dark-colored blue jeans, but
is that your only option? So, what are your upgrade options? During the summer, how about a pair of linen
trousers, maybe a pair of lightweight cotton trousers. This pair right here made with a nice very
strong color. This pair of lightweight chinos made from
cotton again, very breathable much more stylish than shorts. Now, alternatives to blue jeans especially
during maybe the fall during the winter, but this heavier weight just as tough as blue
jeans. Right here maybe bring some color into your
jeans. Why not try a pair of black colored jeans,
maybe gray jeans, maybe actually more of a true blue or using more of a flat material
not necessarily denim, but something that almost looks like a chino, but has a bit of
a stretch to it. The point here is to expand your trouser wardrobe. Gents, I’m not saying you can’t wear shorts
and blue jeans, but I am saying expand your options with different fabrics and different
colors. Tip number three to stop dressing like a boy
and start dressing like a man. Throw out the graphic tees and bring in casual
button-downs bring in more dress shirts, bring in some polos. Anything with a collar anything with buttons
here on the front. Why? Well, for most party types t-shirts aren’t
going to compliment. But, we – come on, it’s a fashion trend,
but if that’s all in your wardrobe, guys, come on, let’s level it up. Bring in some solid dark-colored maybe even
light-colored button-downs casual button-downs. If you don’t have the ideal body type, bring
in some epaulettes on the shoulders, maybe some chest pockets, it’s going to build
up your chest. Maybe you’ve got a thin build. Well, an oversized t-shirt is just going to
make you look skinny, but a well-fitted button-down maybe roll up those sleeves once or twice
is actually going to make you look more muscular. My point, t-shirts are nice, casual button-downs
are superior. Tip number four. Ditch the baseball cap, bring in the tribly. Let’s look to upgrade your headwear. The easiest way to do this is to focus in
on the function. Make sure to buy a hat that actually fits
you and to practice wearing it, so you can build your confidence. Confidence is key. Now, you may find these styles are not for
you. My point, don’t be afraid to try something
new. Next up, ditch the hoodie, upgrade to a jacket. And you’ve got a lot of options out there
when it comes to casual jackets. Let’s start off with a bomber jacket. Now, you’re going to find it in leather
you’re going to find it in suede. What you’re looking for is something that’s
going to compliment look great on you. Oftentimes a darker solid color for most men
is going to look great. Next up, let’s look at trucker jackets. So, we’re not just talking the blue jean
type. They come in a wide variety of colors. I like solid dark colors, I think it compliments
most builds. And, of course I need to mention the sports
jacket. The sports jacket may be a little bit too
dressy for some of you guys, but I would advise you to try it. Why? Because you can dress it down, you can dress
it up, you can layer with sports jackets. And at the end of the day, when you wear a
sports a jacket you set yourself apart from the crowd. Boys wear backpacks, men carry briefcases. No, I’m just kidding there. I love a great backpack, but the point I’m
making here, guys, is investing in a nice simple briefcase. Maybe you want something smaller, you know,
like an attaché case, maybe you want something a little bit larger for your day to day carry
almost like a satchel style. You can start to bring in maybe something
of a lighter color that’s got more of a shape to it which is going to better protect
your documents. Maybe you want something just even larger
than that that can carry even a large computer. My point here, don’t be afraid to go beyond
the backpack, invest in a nice piece of leather luggage which is timeless in style and design
which is going to serve you for decades. Boys wear clip-on ties, men know how to tie
a tie. They know how to tie a bowtie, how to tie
a four-in-hand, how to tie a Half Windsor, how to tie a Full Windsor. Guys, if you need help, I’m linking to tutorials
down in the description of this video. Go check them out, guys. Know how to tie a tie. Boys wear cotton sweat suits track suits and
they think they’re wearing a suit, men wear wool suits. Guys, there is one suit that is king in a
man’s wardrobe. Every man needs to have a classic worsted
wool suit in his wardrobe. He also needs to know the style pyramid. Fit, if the suit doesn’t fit you, get it
adjusted to fit you or buy one that does fit you. [0:04:58]
Next up, look at the function. Does it serve the need that you have for the
suit? Is it classic in design? Don’t buy something that’s trendy, buy
something that’s going to be in style a decade from now. Next, look at the construction the overall
fabric. Focus in on getting the best that you can
afford. This may be a place you have to compromise,
but understand that when you have the money, upgrade to suit. My point, a track suit no matter how much
it cost is not going to command the same level of respect as a well-fitted classic suit. A boy wears clothing that’s too large for
him, a man owns clothing that fits his particular body type. Now, as a kid, my mom used to buy me clothing
that was a little bit too big for me. She said, you’re going to grow into it. Guys, you are past that point, you want to
buy clothing that fits the body you have, so don’t wear clothing that’s way oversize
thinking you’re going to bulk up or get bigger. Find what fits you. And what’s interesting is it may feel a
little bit unfamiliar, you may confuse that with being uncomfortable. Unfamiliar is not uncomfortable, what that
is is you’re just not used to it. Actually get an outside opinion from a few
people, try clothing on that fits you. Go to a tailor not only he can adjust your
suits and your sports jackets, but your casual button-downs. Your jeans can get adjusted. All of a sudden, you’re going to start looking
at yourself in the mirror and saying, wow, I look great. All right, gents now it’s your turn. I want to hear from you down in the comments. What did I miss? What are items that men are wearing that’s
making them look like little boys? Guys, the purpose of today’s video wasn’t
to put down anyone for wearing anything. It’s more of I want you to be able to send
the message that you want to send to the world. Make sure that it’s in alignment with what
you do want to signal what you want to send, so that you can more easily achieve your goals. Makes sense, guys? Hopefully I was pretty clear about that. And I appreciate you, I appreciate everything
we build here at Real Men Real Style. Take care, guys. See you in the next video. [Music]

    Clothing Items That Make You Look Like A Kid?

    1. Upgrade the running shoes
    2. Upgrade baggy shorts & blue jeans
    3. Upgrade graphic tees
    4. Upgrade the baseball cap
    5. Upgrade to a jacket
    6. Invest in a briefcase
    7. Upgrade from clip on ties to tying a tie
    8. Upgrade to classic wool suit
    9. Own clothing that fits – Click here for my how to tie a tie tutorial video – 4 Tie Knots EVERY Man MUST Know

  2. Alternative to linen pants? I live in Florida where the heat and humidity is intense. Linen pants are a wrinkled mess the first time I sit….especially at the back pf the knees.

  3. Still working on my weight loss, already able to re-wear those pants and shirts that were too small. Got a ways to go but hopefully in the next month or so will be able to do the final purge. Looking forward to buying a few "Nice" things to slowly add to my wardrobe.

  4. Aha, yes, I think I get it. Stop dressing in comfortable clothes that are functional as well as easy and quick to get in and out of. Dress like a conservative guy from the 1950s instead. Really, it all makes sense … in a way:

    Why use a comfy backpack that leaves both of your hands free and allows you to easily transport a lot of stuff at the same time? You could get a small but expensive briefcase instead. Not only will you have to hold it with one hand at all times – you'll also be unable to fit as many things into it, by far. Great, right?

    Why wear slightly-too-big T-shirts that do not restrict your freedom of movement? Wear form-fitting button-up shirts instead and have fun putting them on in a hurry without ripping or mismatching the buttons. Don't forget to tuck them in correctly either or you won't be able to turn around or bend down to pick something up without looking disheveled afterwards. Oh, and enjoy your newly limited freedom of movement.

    Why wear comfy running shoes when you could wear those 'casual' dress shoes that make you look like you have elongated feet instead? Also, good luck with fitting orthopedic-shoe-inlays in there, if needed.

    Why wear a baseball cap that helps you to avoid getting blinded by the sun and that you can easily cramp into your backpack whenever it isn't needed? Wear a low-functionality hipster hat instead.

    Why wear a clip-on tie that looks just as good as a regular tie whilst beeing easier to attach, more comfy to wear and safer for work? Tie an old-fashioned tie traditionally instead. This method has no real benefits but just do it, alright? Oh, and you can hang yourself or get strangled better with one of those. Who wouldn't want that?

    Why wear a comfy sweatshirt, tracksuit or even a hoodie that can shield your hair and neck from rain during a surprise rain shower? Wear some expensive wool suit that reduces your free range of motion (even when well-fitted) instead. Just don't get surprised by the rain (remember: there's not enough room for a pocket umbrella in your new tiny briefcase).

    Wear custom-made clothing articles instead of elastic ones and have them all refitted or discarded every time you loose/gain weight or bulk up/down.

    In short:
    Dress like your boring older male relatives and colleagues in order to fit in with the establishment. You won't have any more trouble looking like a happy little cogwheel. 30something singe mothers that are on the hunt for a male provider will surely flock to you from now on. 👍😃

    Have fun with your new conformist adult life.

  5. So much truth in this video Antonio! Thankfully I have unconsciously done all these since starting university 4 years (except the headwear because I never wear any).

  6. I like to say I love your channel been watching for a while now. But in this video is like you're talking to me I have the same trouble too many band T-shirts need to upgrade my clothing and I have. Thanks for all the tips I look forward to more inspirational videos.

  7. What Is your opinion, about travel vests, with pockets? I mean, for every day use. Can somebody use it and look cool?

  8. This is one I don't know how to do at all and it's a very simple item… Socks. Antonio, if you have already touched on this please reply a link and I will check it out. If not please include socks into one of your upcoming videos.

  9. real men wear wireframe sunglasses, not the bright colored, plastic stuff from the 80s.

    pull your pants up, it looks everyone in the eye when you're talking to them.

    take responsibility for your health and workout at the gym or at home you can do this

  10. Hi. I live in Brazil. Here is hot most of the time. What could I dress for the those hot days, like 38ºC (100ºF) ?

  11. Clothes that make you look like a man hold

    Skinny/sagging Jeans
    Baseball cap sideways and backwards and brim is unnecessarily large, nuff said

  12. Apparently, Youtube thinks I have a kid since it's showing a bunch of children's videos on the recommended list. I think it's because this video's title had child and kid on it.

  13. Eh there’s a time and place for every style. To each their to be honest. I’m just not one for dressing “appropriately” everyday.

  14. Great advice from start to finish, and one of your best videos. If every man in North America followed this advice, the world would be a better place.

  15. That is very good informative video for me but I am little bit confused about beard style I don't like clean shave can you please give some suggestion to #style #beard

  16. I was just curious. You talk about wrist watches from that one company, and I was wondering what your opinion is on pocket watches…

  17. Antonio, one other thing that needs to be addressed is wearing hats/caps indoors…..especially at the dinner table in restaurants…very bad manners & childlike….

  18. Many of these videos draw a strong connection between manhood and wealth. It's just assumed that the wealth is there to allow a man to be a Man.

  19. Ï think types of wallet and watches also adds to. Go out on a date or business meeting pull out that Velcro is not going to send a good impression. Or sleeve comes up and they see Spider-Man or low end digital watch, it sends the same message.

  20. When you dress like a man, you are treated like a man. When I go out dressed for success, I get better service. Also, the ladies tend to look at you. I try to dress well everywhere I go. A couple walks into the grocery store. He's dressed like a boy. I'm dressed like a man. She found a reason to leave the guy to "look for something" on my aisle while looked elsewhere. She made sure to make eye contact with me.

    Your fashion must be congruent. Wearing a trilby with a faded t-shirt, ratty. ill-fitting jeans and dirty unserviceable shoes sends out a creep vibe.. Wearing a polo that's 2 sizes too big and baggy jeans says to the world, that you aren't really grown up yet. Dressed like the above and walking with slumped shoulders with your head down ensures you won't be recognized by your peers, women, or your boss.

    I kid you not. Yesterday I wore a nice dress shirt with French cuffs and a red tie (I drive a 14 year old Saturn because car payments suck). I was comped my morning coffee by the cashier. In the past I had complained that the gas pump would send me to the cashier. He mentioned that the reason I was getting a free coffee was because of the gas pump always giving me problems. I think when I come into his store, I look important and treat the man with respect. When you present yourself to society dressed well, have good posture and treat others with dignity and respect, you'll be treated and served as if you are important. People will remember you.

  21. hey antonio, could you please speak a little louder so that it gets easier to catch up the info along with the subtitles?

  22. As an artist living in a metropolitan area, there is no way I'm dressing like a retired old man heading toward a vacation or retirement. I wear fitted suits when necessary, but the casual clothes you recommend in this video are for guys who like the JCPenney look for an old man going golfing look; but hey, to each his own. I don't mean to be insulting. I would like to see what your recommendations for artists would be.

  23. Ok I feel you on the bag debate but what if you are the type of guy that works in the warehouse environment?

  24. Boys think that wearing all black (or at least all dark colors) makes them look cool. Men know how to look cool dressing with bright colors.

  25. Could you make a good video about summer cloths. Looking good with shorts or t-shirts. Clothing for when it's hot outside

  26. I have been watching your veidos for a while now and plan to invest in a fitted suit, when I finish school and apply for a job with the Federal Government in a few years from now when I move from California to Nevada.

  27. 10. Boys wear shell jackets during winter. Men wear pea coats or outercoats during winter. 11. Boys wear white socks. Men wear darker colored socks. 12. Boys carry cheap plastic pens. Men carry luxury ballpoint pens. 13. Boys wear sweatpants in public. Men wear trousers in public.

  28. I agree with all except for the backpack. In my line of work, a briefcase or leather bag would not work. A backpack is perfect for carrying everything I need to bring with me.

  29. I have to admit after over 20 years in the military, I left the service and quickly discovered my style of clothing was lets just say not changed since boot. Started from scratch but when you look good you feel good and people will notice. Although every style hack out there does not fit my own. I will say staying classic seems to work for me. I enjoy your videos keep it up.

  30. Lead by example and stop other guys from putting you down because you're making them feel uncomfortable. Simply point out that you don't want to look like a slob. Stop shopping at AE, Ab and F, the Gap, Hot Topic, and just about any store where there's teenagers and the only adults are their parents.

  31. Just gonna copy a comment from a Russian-dubbed version of this video:
    "A man in a suit looks great.. up until a point when you realise that he probably works for a guy in shorts and a t-shirt"

  32. I'm sixteen… why do I watch this? All this tips are awesome but I think I have to focus on streetwear in my teens.

  33. I keep some hoodies, printed tees and joggers for lounging around the house. Who’s going to slob around the house in a suit or button down?

  34. Really agree with the point about backpacks. Makes you look like your ready to go to class. But you don't need a brief case, a messenger bag is a great replacement without looking stuffy.

  35. White buttons on anything other than a white shirt look annoying and have that discount bin vibe to it. Great video though…

  36. Thank you for consistently putting out this content. The things I've learned since subscribing to your channel and Jose Zuniga's channel has been priceless.

  37. I wear nice dress shorts but I live in South Louisiana and it's hot as Hades.
    I won't wear slacks in 90° humid weather unless I have to

  38. Great information and as usual spot on!! I am 61 but in very good shape and I don't WEAR anything that doesn't fit me good.I changed careers last year and went back to college where young men were wearing back oaks and I said no way!! I got a nice leather notebook to carry my personal things in and I carry myself like the man I am!! Thanks do much for your great work.

  39. Love all this. Sadly im not white so I must step up even more than those who follow your advice. I dress how you do except the jacket. Kinda need money first to purchase what you're trying to sell to me.

  40. Items that kids wear, not men: Boat shoes, skinny jeans, joggers, clown socks with a suit, shorts with a suit, running shoes with a suit, dress pants that are too fitted (border line tight).

  41. This video was well produced. It included some useful information like avoiding shoes that are glued together, and choosing wool for suits over other materials.

  42. RMRS thank you for your videos , I need your help please. I used to weigh around 67kgs but my weight jumped to 79kgs in the last year or so. I have over 40 shirts , 30 slim and skinny pair of jeans, 15 shorts , possibly 50 t shirts and 15 pair of chinos and the sad news is this , none of them fit me anymore , should I upgrade my wardrobe or lose weight ? My current size is affecting my confidence. Please help

  43. Antonio I have seen a lot of your videos but to my recollection I don’t recall you ever mentioning men’s clothing stores that you like by name. So what stores do you like?
    I need to seriously upgrade my wardrobe.

  44. Why does wearing buttons all the time make you a man??!! I have Aspergers and have had an irrational phobia of buttons since I was a kid and I hate to wear shirts and button downs! I only like to wear T-shirts so does that mean I’m not a man because I don’t wear buttons? Am I not a man because I hate sports jackets and chinos? I’m a 25 year old and I don’t want to dress like a 40 plus year old!! Am I a stupid little boy because I just wear graphic tees and I hate wearing button down shirts??? Please don’t judge because I am autistic and also I hate trainers, baseball caps and tracksuits! Am I not a man because I only like to wear sandals in the summer and get physically uncomfortable at the idea of wearing socks and boots in the summer and I like to wear shorts still at age 25??? Nothing wrong with it over in the UK and Ireland. Yes the button phobia has worn down but I will NEVER wear buttons to relax, only T-shirt’s, although on a formal occasion I actually love to wear a suit and feel good in a suit!

  45. I’m getting married in October. My suit is a dark green sharkskin. What color tie should I wear. I’m afraid a solid ivory will get lost in a white shirt

  46. I like your positivity. Clothing style is part of our projection to the world. Don't be apathetic to your appearance, guys.
