"You can dress well and dress casually. It wouldn't look much differently than what you wear now. Keep the boots, but also wear some canvas shoes sometimes. Instead of a sportcoat or a nice sweater, wear a casual sweater or a jacket that is a…"

"The only times you can overdress: Wearing a tuxedo outside of a fancy shindig. Wearing pants to a pool party ... and that's it. Now go, and be golden. "

"The current fashion seems to be a bag over shirt on the women and t-shirt and jeans for the guys during the day. The PJ Look is probably a morning class thing.  "

Okay, so how does/can a man express sweetness, and in a manly way?The self improvement movement seems mostly to focus on being an alpha/confident/manly male. All good qualities, but there isn't much mention of expressing your softer side.One of the sweetest men I know is my Dad. But perhaps I think he's sweet because I'm his son... other than that, one of my closest friends is a sweet bloke. The ladies think he's sweet, but again, what is it that makes him come across like this?I guess I'm…See More
