I Have No Style

1 pair jeans
1 pair shorts
6 t-shirts, 6 pairs black socks, 6 pairs boxers
1 belt
1 long sleeves jumper
1 pair running shoes
1 pair casual Adidas shoes

That’s all I had for six months. I had to do laundry each week but I was covered for hiking on mountains, walking on the beach and drinking at bars and clubs. Everything I had matched everything else and I didn’t have to spend more than 10 seconds a day with my dress.

When a friend recently told me that all the pictures he has of me is in the same shirt, one my sister picked out for me in Macy’s that cost $25, all I could do was shrug. I’ve worn it at least a dozen times and will literally wear it out until it disintegrates, just like what happened to my last pair of jeans. It doesn’t bother me that a bartender at my favorite bar probably thinks I have no clothes. There’s no reason it should.

Guys have to be a little careful about what they choose to showcase. If it’s money then they will attract girls who like money. If it’s style then they will attract girls who like style. If it’s personality, then well, you get the idea. I can’t say any girls I’ve gone out with recently have been high-maintenance, and that’s just how I like it.

I think I will replace my old brown t-shirt next month. Let me gear up the budget for the $20 cost.

    This is the best thing you’ve written in weeks.

    Roosh – do women have to wear more expensive and more varied clothes? I know you are always commenting about no flip flops, that we should instead wear sexy high-heel boots. Sexy high heel boots typically cost a lot…i don’t know if you’d spring for them if you were a girl. I just wonder if a girl had just 6 t-shirts and a pair of jeans would you say that she doesn’t care about her looks? … I am guessing maybe if she was a Brazilian girl and she looked great in those jeans you wouldn’t care.

    Melissa – it’s not the clothes which you put on the body, but rather the body on which you put the clothes.

    A really attractive person of either gender looks good in a t-shirt and jeans.

    You wore a dress? Weird.

    Just playing.

    I like to come with Money, Style and Personality. You cast a wider net.

    The key is, don’t spend that money on girls. It’s all in the “flash”, the “slight of hand” if you will.

    The bigger Bankroll you have, the less money you have to spend. Sort of a “Vegas Comp theory”.

    Most people never understand that.

    A Higher level of the Game.

    if you spend a lot of money on a girl she’s not going to f*ck you, at least not as quickly or as easily, that’s always been my experience. the vegas comp theory is a legit one. i’ve bought girls dinner at various times over the years, rarely did i end up f’ing those girls. girls i met at the movies, met drinking, or had coffee with, well, the success rate was FAR higher.

    You are truly a trailblazer.

    I totally agree with this post. I accidently stumbled upon this when I went out one night totally unshaven, shower-less, ripped tee, dirty jeans, etc. after a long day of working on my house. After my success that evening (and subsequent evenings), I learned to never again “dress to impress”. At this point it’s all about looks, smarts, humor, and personality for this kid.

    If a girl cares how I dress, what brands I wear, or anything of the sort why would I want anything to do with her (for more than one night) anyway? And the funny thing is, I have even MORE success than ever with the trendy, shallow, fashion-conscious girls.

    These days I only dress up for wedding, funerals, and lunch with my Grandmother. I only wished I had learned this sooner.

    Sure you can get girls by dressing down. Hell, I did it for years as a Baby G surfing around the world and in Southern California.

    But never sell yourself short.

    You will always do better coming with Money, Style and Personality than just Personality alone.

    Show me Someone who says they will “never dress sharp” and I will show you someone who has never been to Savile Row to get a custom suit.

    Show me someone that says they don’t need to dress up or have money to get girls and I will show you someone who does and who gets twice as many.

    I was just thinking today I had to invest in some usable pants. I like your utilitarian approach though. I try to buy few, but nice things that are sturdy and can be worn anywhere without being out of place. Madras pants/shorts don’t really fit here.

    You are not going to snag top shelf girls looking like a slob. Will you be able to fuck lots of average college chicks and office workers? Sure. But the heiresses with Pulitzers? Nope.

    NYCorey,

    “You are not going to snag top shelf girls looking like a slob. Will you be able to fuck lots of average college chicks and office workers? Sure. But the heiresses with Pulitzers? Nope.”

    Really couldn’t have said it better myself.

    “Roosh – do women have to wear more expensive and more varied clothes? ”

    More varied yes. 99% of men don’t know what is expensive anyway. Still with my limited wardrobe, if i remember what i wear with a certain girl she won’t see the same shirt until the 7th date.

    “But the heiresses with Pulitzers?”

    Then the issue really isn’t style in that case but money.

    “madras pants”

    I had to google that. jesus christ.

    You rag on girls for wearing flip-flops, yet you make posts like this, saying that if a girl is worth it, she wouldn’t care. Any woman could make the same argument. I don’t know, seems like a bit of a double standard to me.

    I agree with this and the same goes for women.

    Well if you notice in Hollywood and even here in Dubai, some guy in a T-shirt and jeans will be accompanied by a babe dressed in a hot minidress and 5″ heels. The T-shirt and jeans guy could well be driving a Ferrari, and his T-shirt might have cost $100 while his jeans might have cost $150. Slob chic can be expensive as dressing nice.
