We’ve taken the hard work out of it for you, all you need to do is read our 10 tips stylish men don’t want you to know below and you’ll be well on your way. 

So, let’s get right into it and help you become the most stylish man in town. 

Hair Products

The thing about hair products is that they can be pretty hit and miss. That’s why it’s essential to find the perfect hair products for you. There’s a lot of things to consider when choosing the right hair product and local climate should always be taken into consideration. 

Pomades are great but they have a habit of smothering your scalp and retaining heat. Not ideal if you’re in a very hot country and the sun makes you sweat, making the chemicals from the pomade drip down onto your face and into your eyes. A fiber or clay hair product is a much safer option because it offers much better breathability. 

A Close Shave

The right razor makes a real difference when dishing out the style points. With so many to choose from like electric shavers, safety razors and straight razors, it can be difficult to zero in on the best one for you. 

Choosing the best razor for you will depend on a few different things from convenience, safety and how sensitive your skin is. There are pros and cons to each type of razor, so it’s worthwhile to exercise a little trial and error to find something that works well for you. Straight razors offer a very close shave but there’s a higher risk of cutting yourself. Electric shavers are convenient, portable and the safest to use but don’t offer the closest shave. 

A Signature Scent 

Do you get compliments on how you smell? If not, it’s time to get yourself a signature scent that everyone can recognize you by. No matter what fragrance you apply to your skin, your body chemistry will combine with it to produce a unique scent. 

If you’re a little stuck with what kind of scent to wear, floral scents and high must have been proven to boost confidence in men. Much like a suit, the perfect cologne can give a man just what he needs to tackle the day. 

The Right Pen

Whether you’re signing checks, writing in your diary or you just like to keep one on you at all times; the right pen can do wonders. Throw out that cheap pack of 12 pens and get yourself something that writes like a dream and has a little weight. 

You can display authority when you pull out a weighty pen that you’ve invested money into. It shows anyone around you that you mean business and that adds on a lot of style points. 

A Slimline Wallet

There are wallets and then there are “wallets”, it’s important to decipher between the two. Throw out that clunky velcro wallet that weighs down your pants and get yourself a slim wallet that’s barely visible in your back pocket. 

A slim wallet is ideal for cards and a few bills without giving yourself severe back problems. 

Shirt Stays

One of the ultimate men’s style secrets – the shirt stay. This stealthy and stylish tool helps to keep your shirt flat and neatly in place when you move around the office, the pub or even a children’s birthday party. 

Shirt stays are simple to use, you just clip one end to your socks and the other end to the bottom of your shirt. Tucking your shirt back in will become a thing of the past. 

Nose Clippers

If you’re a tall dude, then this style tip is absolutely essential for you. We firmly believe that gentlemen should be well-groomed and for that, you’re going to need the right tools. To refine your look, use nose clippers every week and keep that nostril bush tamed, trimmed and free of any overgrown mess.  

Tie Clips and Tie Bars

One of the best style essentials for men is the tie bar and the tie clip. The charming little tool is versatile and can come in an array of stylish finishes. It’s designed to keep your tie in place by attaching it to your shirt. The different finishes, colors and shapes can help to add a touch of flair to your signature look without you looking overly garish or flashy. It’s important to note that tie bars and tie clips can be matched with other accessories and jewelry that you may rock.  

Suspenders  

Suspenders, also known as braces if you’re a gentleman from Britain are a solid alternative to a belt if you want to keep your pants up. But, the best thing about suspenders is that they come in a variety of colors and styles which means you can add a stylistic twist to your outfit. 

For bigger men, suspenders are a better fit than belts and that means they can be used by men of all body shapes and sizes. Not only are suspenders more stylish but eliminate the issue of constant shirt tucking too. 

Undershirts

To protect your expensive dress shirts from dirt, sweat and grime an undershirt can be worn underneath to mitigate the damage. Furthermore, they stop your nipples from poking through and that could be very useful in presentations. 

Instead of opting for white undershirts, we recommend that you go for a grey or even peach. These two colors are less vibrant than white when worn underneath and that means they won’t make you stand out like a sore thumb.
