It’s you against you in terms of how you dress.dress-expensive
For the job. For the girl.
His whole appearance oozes class and power without looking like a walking billboard.
He gets listened to. He gets respect.
He gets treated as a better person just because he wears better clothes.
It’s unfair. But it’s life. How can you compete?
Luckily, there are ways.  If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you might be able to guess the first one: 
Rich men wear bespoke – or at the very least, made-to-measure. What sets them apart most visibly, even at a distance, is how well their clothes fit. Mid-range, off-the-rack clothing can and will look high-end if you nail the fit. Always make sure to be wearing the right combinations daily
Many department stores and big-box men’s retailers have in-store sewing services. Don’t rely on them. For the level of quality, personal service, and attention to detail that a rich man expects, you need to build a relationship with a local tailor. Take everything you wear to him. If that means you can afford fewer clothes, that’s fine – a small wardrobe of clothes that fit will make you look richer than all the ill-fitting clothes in the world. 

Don't get me wrong, a bit of plus-sized clothes with the right combination of pieces can make you stand out.

#2. Avoid Obvious Branding

Brand names can carry a certain prestige. However, you want to avoid becoming a walking billboard. Having large logos and brand names on your clothes, especially on jackets, cheapens the overall look. 

What you may read below may seem funny, as i am a Nigerian and have witnessed a lot of things. Nobody has a right to question you without a warrant but the reverse is the case here in Nigeria.

This is the one aspect we need to look out for in Nigeria today, A lot of people tagged as yahoo boys seems to do this a lot and in a way, this draws the attention of unwanted harassment from armed forces like; The Police.

I'm not in any way promoting illegal activities, but trying to give you ways by which you save yourself from harassment. I kinda noticed this in people or individuals that wear the GUCCI brand, they always want the tag to be shown.. in my opinion, dressing expensive is not the tags or brand, I've noticed that most expensive clothes have their tags hidden.

Another bit of hardware to look out for is the buttons. Look for things like mother-of-pearl buttons instead of plastic on your dress shirts, and horn buttons instead of plastic on your jackets.  It’s a small difference but shows considerable attention to detail and a willingness to spend a bit more for a better look and feel.
Finally, keep an eye out for dress shirts with French cuffs – they don’t usually cost more than barrel cuffs (once you have the cufflinks), it will set you apart from the majority of men in dress shirts. It’s a quick fix to looking pricey.

#4. Number Of Stitches Per Inch

Hand-stitched seams will tend to have a much higher number of stitches per inch than factory-sewn pieces. Higher stitches per inch increase the strength of the seam, which means that your shirt or suit will tend to last much longer.
It will also have a huge effect on how GOOD the seam looks. More stitches per inch = straighter, tighter seams. Even if you’re buying off the rack, shop with an eye to the highest stitches per inch you can afford.


When you a buy a suit, sports jacket or vest, the pockets and lapel buttonhole are probably stitched closed. This is especially true if the jacket has ticket pockets. Nothing screams rookie or cheapskate louder than when a guy tries to reach into the stitched-up pocket of his new suit.
Don’t assume the tailor cut the pick stitching – double-check when you get home and have a stitch ripper in the drawer to facilitate removal.

Another bonus tip to appear ten times richer? Buy a men's statement wrist watch that looks like ten times what it cost.
