Style Secret #1 – Wear Your Best Fitting Clothes When Shopping

You know how it gets tedious trying on different shirts and pants in the changing room? Not only is it a vicious cycle of putting on and taking off, but it also creates a lot of mess. And let’s be honest – how many of us guys are big shoppers in the first place? That’s where it really helps to walk into a store wearing clothes that fit you perfectly. In a way, they are the answer key to this little shopping test you’re taking.  Just take a minute to picture yourself as a 4th-grade History teacher – and let’s say you’ve prepared a pop quiz for your students with 5 multiple-choice questions.

Since you have to mark 25 papers after class, which of these 2 options would make your life easier?

  • Option A: Use the textbook to check each individual answer on each student’s paper.
  • Option B: Refer to the answer key (such as “CBDCA”) for each paper.

There’s no doubt that Option B is better. Option A isn’t wrong, but it wastes unnecessary time and energy because all 25 students have been given the exact same quiz with the same Q&A structure. So this is one technique you can apply whenever you go shopping.

Once you’ve entered the dressing room with the stuff to try on, you simply have to take off your well-fitted shirt and lay a test shirt over it. This is about comparing shirts directly – where you can quickly determine if Test Shirt #1 will be tight around the sleeves or slightly loose on the torso.

In a similar way, you can lay different test trousers over your well-fitted pants – and that will indicate whether something is too large or small for your waistline. This is a shortcut approach to shopping for basic wardrobe items. You’ll be able to compare apples to apples – and find the gold – more efficiently
