Five mistakes men make
We love working with our male clients! You guys have a totally different perspective when it comes to working with us - it's all about "make it easy and get it done quickly".
There's a fairly diverse range of style personalities among you, too: from the man that really cares about what works for him, right through to the disinterested bloke that can hardly focus on the garments in his wardrobe for more than two minutes. Even so, there's a few 'common elements' that we find when working in your wardrobes:
1. Men don't throw stuff out. You hoard your clothes, but it's more that you stop noticing them rather than simply holding on to things to wear, so when we point out that it's time to get rid of it, you happily do.
2. Men get emotionally attached to garments. Yes, every man's wardrobe we've ever done has had a "lucky shirt" or T-Shirt that has memories attached. Who knew?
3. Men don't notice if it's past it's "fashion moment". OK, there's a very small number of exceptions here, but mostly a man's wardrobe will contain stuff that time forgot - even if only recently, and you are still wearing it.
4. Men get the shoe thing wrong - often. Men can let themselves down with the shoes they wear. You really need more than a pair of dress shoes and a pair of trainers. We wrote about what shoes you need in a previous issue, so if you'd like a copy of that get in touch and we'll send it to you.
5. Men don't understand the casual style thing. Which is why we'll find the faded old boardies that you wear as shorts in summer, worn out T-Shirts and nasty old trackies or jeans in your wardrobe, and even worse, you'll rock those out at a barbeque. This is possibly why your wife has called us in to help.
