In my twenties Thugs always won my eye despite their troubled ways. A tall skinny sexy Latino with a baseball hat, Jordans, saggy jeans while rocking an oversized north face in the winter or just a nice polo 2 to 3 sizes too big in the summer, oh don’t let me forget tattoos, they were a plus.
So, when I was introduced to the hood (Paterson, NJ) I felt like a kid in a candy store. All you saw was every flavored male rocking everything I mentioned above. Unknown to my guilibleness the majority sold drugs, smoked weed, had more than one girl and acted how they looked: shiny on the outside but shallow on the inside. Thinking they had succeeded in life because they were the fliest dude in the local bar or liquor store making themselves hood famous; which runs out by the time they are 40 yrs old.
That was all before I saw a fine looking Man in a suit. Damn, feeling like a kid in a candy store, I felt like a lady who needed to step up her game to attract a husband.
At 30, I am no longer attracted to the hood famous guy, I’m attracted to the man who can look famous in a suit. Tattoos are a plus as well, that’s one thing I will always love. A suit makes an attractive guy of any race or age more attractive.
I had a conversation with a middle-aged African-American Pharmaceutical Rep named Curtis Melton who says, he wears a suit jacket everywhere he goes, “Your appearance reflects how people treat you.” I must say he is right. Nobody perceives an individual with baggy attire as an educated college graduated, working on Wall Street and owns a home. They most likely will believe that person is an ex-con.
Despite the fact you could unknowingly be sitting in between a millionaire in baggy jeans, oversized shirt with a fitted and a poor man that is well groomed and in a tailored suit.
Who would you think had a job, drove a Maserti and owned their own business?
Yeah, think about it, because you would most likely go with the bum that is temporarily groomed and sharply suited up.
A man in a suit represents class, maturity, confidence, and proves they are the fliest dude wherever they go. Not saying a guy in jeans and fitted can’t look sophisticated, they can, but it’s all about presentation.
We know a guy in a suit has a job; he can’t stand in the hood wearing a tailored suit, we know he is going places; he can’t hang in the local bar or liquor store looking prestigious. We know he was educated; an uneducated fool wouldn’t know the pleasure of a fine suit, we know at 40 he will most likely have his own condo or house, we know he has money, no tailored suit is cheap and mostly likely he is looking for a woman or wife not “ole girl with 5 baby daddies that gives the best head in town.”
What do you find more attractive?
Do you think guys who are hood can change into men from the hood after 30?
If you had to pick out your man’s wardrobe, what would it consist of?
