Everyone knows how awkward it is when a man wears a muscle shirt but doesn’t have any muscles. Fortunately, most men aren’t that out of touch with reality. The weak-muscled man has a lot of issues to sort through, but the average guy just needs a couple tweaks to start turning heads with his wardrobe. Large men have three easy ways they can stand out from the crowd.
Avoid “Loud” Shirts
Just because companies spend time and money printing shirts in fifteen colors, doesn’t mean that you need to buy them. For example, Hawaiin shirts…these speak mile, and women don’t actually like a man whose shirt looks like a jungle party on acid. These types of bright shirts were originally made to showcase vacation fun, but have since become synonymous with trying too hard.
Skip these shirts and buy some jewel tone ones instead. Deep and rich colors are still associated with wealth and power. There are as many jewel tones as there are neon colors, so you don’t have to worry about your wardrobe becoming predictable and boring. These colors draw the eye but don’t make the wearer look ridiculous.
Wear What Fits
Obviously, clothes that are too small aren’t flattering on any body type. For a larger man, the opposite also holds true. You don’t want to wear baggy clothes in an effort to hide the exact size of your body. A shirt should be fitted enough that someone can tell what’s you and what’s the shirt. Wearing a circus tent will only make it seem like you’re larger than you are. The human eye tends to fill in chunks of space as one mass, so if your shirt is giving you a blocky profile, you’re going to look blocky.
Don’t Give up on Fashion
It can be hard to find fashionable clothes for the active, larger man. Sometimes it seems like your only options are too snug or too big. When you get into these situations, you have to take a step back and consider your options. If you can’t find what you need in the store, you can go online. If one brand doesn’t carry your size, another will. Fashion’s worst enemy is laziness. Instead of despairing and getting the wrong size, think about all the women you meet every day. Fitted clothes showcase you at your best, and you deserve to have women see you at your best. Putting in the extra effort could be the difference between a date and a friendship.
Every guide out there showcases that the only way for a large man to be attractive is to lose weight; you already know that that’s not true. Your sex life is far from a lost cause. These three rules are here not to change what you are, but to work with what you have. You wouldn’t put a trophy in a dimly lit storage cupboard and expect it to gleam. Don’t put your body in clothes that don’t suit it and then be disappointed when it doesn’t get the recognition it deserves.
