SPECIAL GIFT at the end of this video if you get at least 7/10 style rules correct. :) Don't forget to leave a comment below!
Whoops, had written a way-too-long message but accidentally deleted it. Well, nevermind, mostly random thoughts I was trying to put words on while following the video.
Long story short, I give myself a 7/10, but if anyone had read my thoughts on the tips, I should've probably given myself a 6,5. I like to think I made up for it with the bonus tip though, haha! :-)
I guess after 3 weeks the "winners" have been picked but just in case, I'll post anyway:
Buckles: Not really picky, I like the interesting look of their "traditional" and the "classic" is classic for a reason. Only ones I kind of dislike are the "onyx" two-tone ones and "golf" line. Also, I don't dislike the rose gold colors, but I'd probably never wear it, not really my color. 1.5 inches preferred, since I have a belt for formal occasions already and that's what I tie a narrower one to. Straps: Black or cognac, definitely. Black I wear almost daily, presumedly lower quality.The cognac looks gorgeous on their website and looks to fit my pretty-new brown boots well. Their light brown one has a great color too, though! So ranked: 1. cognac, 2. black, 3. light brown.
I got 10/10. As far as the belts go, I'd pick the cordovan 1.25" belt with a traditional gold buckle as I have two pairs of similarly colored shoes I wear often , that it'd go with. These colors would also go well with my skin tone for an extra bit of harmony.
the "get a taylored suit" statement I get from this and many other videos is often exagerated. Brands chose their of the rack sizes quite considered. A lot of people fall kinde well into it. If you are one of them, And honestly, most of you are, there is not that much benefit from getting a taylored suit. It makes it sth more special for sure, but there will not be a that obvious diffrence on sight. Not as much as some of you want to believe.
I have 8/10 Antonio you have change my style in wearing men clothing from wearing chukka boots and wearing denim Jean's, chinos and of course button down shirts and suits that my Girlfriend says that I look different and handsome thanks Antonio
1: tailored suits, check.
2: unique individual style that defines who I am, and what my trade is: check
3: My wardrobe only exists of items I bought on purpose, only things I really like: Check
4: Knowing quality when I see it, because I trained myself to see that: check
5: Things I really like and wear often may cost whatever they cost: check
6: My personal style has never allowed trends to happen: check
7: Specific colours (dark red and black, my favourites) and patterns so that they all match: check
8: If it is not my style, I would not even buy it when It's 99% off (well maybe to sell it later, depends), because then I know I will not wear it: check
9: Baseline: black shoes, black denim, black or red dress shirt, possibly topped with gilet depending on weather: check
10: Invest in my education: after high school (I live in europe) I decided to work in 5 shifts to avoid student loans, I set apart all of my money, except monthly fees, for my education. University degree psychology, courses in finances, books about skills (especially social intelligence and tactics): check.
11: always have the things with me neccesary to perform quick basic repairs: check.
Also a thank you from this 20 year old guy in the Netherlands. You really inspired me to build up my wardrobe, because after all, books are always judged on their covers. I get done more from other people this way, it really helps building my career, and last but not least: it makes me feel great when I wear the clothing I love, it gives me an instant confidence boost.
I appreciate your videos and have used them to help me influence my style. However, I wonder if you made a video yet about polyester shirts and suits vs cotton vs wool vs linen vs silk, etc. Because from my experience, my wool and polyester blend sportcoat is MUCH more stuffy than my 3 wool suits and my 1 cotton suit. In my opinion, guys out there need to know just how much polyester is in circulation and to avoid it as it is not exactly the same as wool, if you know what I mean? Thanks again, I find your videos interesting.
This may not strictly be a proper hard rule, but I suggest that whenever some clothing brand (or specific item) receives any mainstream media coverage or is worn by a new school celebrity, just pass on it. You may show up in a Brooks Brothers shirt and it will be great, but if you show up in a Gucci shirt people will just look at you funny. Not even considering yet that popular luxury brands have an alarming tendency to drop their quality faster than Lehman Brothers stock few years ago.
I'm happy about the community we built in RMRS. It's great to see when people are helping each other out in the comment section or in Facebook discussions. I can't wait to see what the future holds for us.
I would say I knew 8 of those 11. I need to get a button sew kit. I notice that my vests and jackets tend to have loose buttons.
My style I've been getting the most compliments on is with browns and golds. It works well with my skin tone and facial hair color. I would go with the gold buckle and the light brown 1.25" or the faux croc strap.
Just made it! 7/10 (or 8/10 with the bonus tip). My big pitfalls are that I haven't decided on my message, that I'm not experienced with spotting quality (your videos have helped), and I haven't spent much on education... Granted in my situation, of course I'm up to speed on all the thriftiest style rules.
Super interested in Anson Belt and Buckle!
I'm eyeing the Saddle tan casual leather strap, and the beige microsuede strap (these aren't met by my current belts), and my favorite buckle has gotta be the nickel free traditional buckle-- all in 1.25" widths.
Shoppinh with a list is the best advice there. Good for life too: Make a plan, stick to it. That and NEVER STOP LEARNING.
Anson belts look great. For me it would be classic and onyx in silver. All my watches/jewelry is silver.
Black, cognac and grey canvas would get everything covered in my opinion.
Thanks, Antonio for the info on Anson belts which will be my next investment, I've learned tremendously from the blake stitch, Goodyear welt, and belts to using collar plackets which I just purchased and I feel like a million bucks. I went to your website to register for the Anson belts and couldn't find the link.
This was such a fantastic list! I love how seamlessly you bring together personal presentation, a life of integrity, the craft (the actual skills) of sartorial living. And I love your enthusiasm.
I am, alas, not a gentleman. However, I did get 100%!
Indeed an excellent video certainly full of a plethora of use knowledge I personally appreciate the great effort you put in this video to help your subscribers educate themselves on 10 style rules every man should know!
Tfw you got didn't get any pointers right. This was posted on my birthday and it was the perfect wake up call. Thanks for this video.
Any combination is fine if i get lucky, gotta ditch my wardrobe anyways
In the last year since I started to watch your channel and the others mentioned I have started to take those lessons and invest more in myself and not just style but controlling the message I put out there. This helped me to get the courage to go out and ask for that pay increase and ultimately a new better job.
Anson belts look great hopefully they have them in a size that fits I'm a 42 waist. I like the 1.25 cordovan, cognac and black belts. I really like the traditional buckles, both the formal and regular gunmetal. Keep up the good work Antonio.
Hello Antonio. My name is Ilyas and I'm from India. I'm a student of Business Administration and I'm self employed as I teach in the evening time after my college. I'm following your videos about the rules and laws from a long time. I follow 8 rules which you have just mentioned. I don't consider price but I always consider the fabric although I can buy one or two in a month but still I wait every month and get the most suitable pair of formals. I don't know my measurements but then I keep the equipment like how to shine my shoe and I do it every alternative day. I'm really interested with suits and I have learned a lot from you and AlphaM about the rules, fit, function and many more things. I am not a perfect person but I try to learn and be a better person everyday and management is my passion so I dress, behave and communicate accordingly. Not sure if I will get a gift from your side but the more important point why I'm writing this, is to Thank You. I love your work and you're an inspiration for me.
Hi thanks for the inspiration in the video. Although I didn’t have a very good score I’m determined to use your tips to improve my style. These belts also look very nice and if it is possible I would love to get:
Strap 1: Navy Leather Strap
Buckle 1: Traditional Buckle in Gunmetal
or a similar one.
I agree about knowing how to sew a button but if it were me in that scenario, I would use the loose button as a conversation starter or ice breaker, which would create a more relaxed atmosphere. And it's just one little button, you're still going look and (hopefully) smell amazing anyway. It may even draw more attention to your outfit and show the person that you have a good eye for detail, maybe they notice your shoes or tie pin more, it could be anything.
Sometimes a negative can be turned into a positive so easily =)
But seriously though, learn to sew a button.
Yes a perfect score on every item, however this did not happen overnight it’s taken years of trial and error to get to the point you feel, look and project the image you want. As for Anson belts, they are the only belts I wear and have been give them away as gift for years, the adjustability is what I enjoy as well as the awesome selection of colour options available. Thanks for reaffirming my own style rules are spot on.
I just love the classic belt combination:
Brown leather with a silver buckle.
It works great with my boots too, and actually that's the only item I am sure I will use forever.
Right now I own two belts, both Brown/silver, but both of them are getting those cracks at the holes as you mentioned.
So I really would love a new belt (system).
Awesome video Antonio! Thanks for all the lessons and i hope one day to attend to Menfluential!
If i would choose some of those awesome belts, my choices are:
1.5" Traditional Buckle in Gunmetal or 1.5" Traditional Buckle in Antiqued Gold
1.5 black microstrap or
1.5" Cognac Leather Strap
Have a nice day!
Another excellent video Antonio. I like the idea of a belt system. I will work towards incorporating that into my wardrobe for sure. It'd be nice to get the gift set with two belts three buckles to start off though.
Another great video! I get only 6, but it´s ok. For a lot of time I want to order one to try, maybe this time I will! probably the 1.25" TRADITIONAL BUCKLE-SILVER with 1.25" CHOCOLATE LEATHER STRAP
Keep up the awesome info for us! :)
Thank you Antonio, this video was such a great recap of so many things you’ve taught in other videos. I shouted out loud when I scored my 10/10...!! I’ve taken the time over the last few years to craft a wardrobe that has both current style and classic designs so that I can mix & match s well as sticking with my signature look. I’ve invested in bespoke as well as off the rack, so I wear Hawks & Curtis for my everyday wear, along with TM Lewin and Charles Tyrwhitt, and then I have Brioni, Pal Zilleri and Gieves & Hawkes in my bespoke items. I’ve even applied similar principles to my shoe purchases so that I always have the right shoes to wear. The Anson belt and buckle collection looks awesome. I really like their black & dark brown formal belts with the silver and gold basic buckles. I think a belt should be elegant and understated, after all it’s thereto enhance and create a break in the outfit, rather than make a statement on its own...!! Thanks for all the advice...!!
I wouldn't have put continued self-education on the list of "style" requirements, I'd definitely put that down as more of a "if you value yourself" thing. Which goes far beyond just fashion. Fair enough to include that, though.
Otherwise, everything mentioned makes perfect sense to me. I wasn't pulling the exact guesses out of thin air but that's all stuff I have done, even if some things I slack on keeping as a habit. Good stuff.
Idk I kind of agree with the fact that you should spend money on stuff, but I shop at stores like Walmart and target and such I've had great quality shoes and pants from places like that I even buy jeans for a cheaper price and get them tailored to my liking as some one on a budget i think I'm doing pretty good for example I don't need rolexes and such right now while I'm poor lol. So pretty much I just think if you pay close attention to what you buy when don't need to spend a arm and a leg. Except a when buying a suit. Mean you could get the 200$ suit that he said and get it tailored for 100$ and still make out. I assume this dude makes his videos for rich people or wealthy. Anyways great video tho I always get inspiration from you, makes me wanna go buy stuff
I bought my first Canali suit while visiting New York last year for $1000 - 50% off from original. It's perfect and elegant in every sense, and I was so happy until it started falling apart only after 3 months! Not sure if I want to buy this brand again!
I got a 10/10! And I have to say, these were rules to which I started paying attention not so long ago. I'm now in the second half of my 20's and I'm really taking the time to study and improve my personal style and way of life. Thanks to channels like this, it's been a very gratifying task!
Hey Antonio, awesome vid. Me personally, I think I was able to make about 7 out of 10 on these. And if you pick me, I'll take Chocolate brown formal leather and a traditional silver buckle. But if I may, pick Wiltaculer in the comments below. Seems pretty chill, and he deserves a belt.
Great content! Been watching your videos for a while now and have been implementing 5 or 6 of them in my life but I got 8/10.
Checked out the website and I loved the Classics Over Trends rule and would go with any of the following:
1) Black Leather Strap
2) Dark Brown Leather Strap
3) Onyx in Silver Buckle
4) Classic in Black Buckle
5) Classic in Formal Gunmetal Buckle
Thanks a lot for your efforts and consideration.
I think ... considering the possibilities I have had ... am about 9 out of 10 - I do not know my exact measurements (it is a matter of try at the shop, because not a single pair of producers have the same sizing system). I really enjoy these videos to actually educate myself about style and I would really love to try some of the products you show in your videos. The Anson belt? An awesome product as it looks in the videos, maybe I would have the chance to try it one day, leather, fabric, whatever :-) thanks for the video anyway
I have learned most of these rules the hard way, by making my own mistakes, but I will give you credit for a couple of them, Antonio. I will add a personal one: ALWAYS be on TIME! It shows you respect other people's time.
I'd love to try an Anson belt, if I would pick one, I'd go for Traditional Gunmetal buckle and black belt.
10/10 on my second time through the video this morning if that counts.
I like the congac and black traditional straps and traditional gunmetal and silver buckles. But they all look great and I'm just getting started on improving my style so I'm open to anything
I’ve been watching for about a month now, and I’m genuinely surprised to say I got 9/10, soon to be 10 once I get a tape measure. I have to say, guys like you and Alex Costa have helped me transition my life from the bland position of not knowing how to present myself at all into the ambitious man I am today. If you decide to choose me for the belt giveaway I’d prefer the saddle tan leather strap with a traditional silver buckle, to go with a certain pair of Florsheims that’ve been particularly hard to find a matching belt for
Antonio - Nice list. I like your style rule about knowing your style uniform. The Anson belt that fits mine would be the traditional buckle in gunmetal with a saddle tan strap. That would compliment my double monks perfectly. Thanks for your efforts for improving men's lives. Regards. Mike
You are so on point with Anson belts. Just got my second 3 straps 2 buckles and I have to say that you have guided me on a path that I didnt know that I needed to walk but am enjoying the journey as I go!!
