The way that you're perceived is on a first impression. It may seem a little shallow to you, but it's the truth. A first impression really does matter because that's the only first impression you will ever get. As soon as you walk into a meeting, as soon as you step out of your car, as soon as you enter a restaurant; first impressions are made. It's time to make a conscious choice to change and dress better. People will actually look at you differently.
When people get a better first impression of you, they will see someone different. They'll see someone more confident. Someone that deserves instant respect. A person that has better ideas, more deserving of attention and more receptive to the people around them. Are these things that you're looking for?
Fashionbola is a project of mine to guide men into a better style of clothing, of shaving and just being a better man. A lot of this might feel a bit different for you. This type of change can be uncomfortable. Red pants? Weird. New haircut? Doesnt' feel right. It won't be easy to change, but that's life. Anything worth changing to requires a struggle because it if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
