What have we left out?
It’s no secret that finding a Kenyan man in a well-fitting suit, except a few here and there is like looking for a needle in stack of hay. Why don’t they make the effort? Well, maybe there are more important things for them than wondering what shirt to pair with what pants and, I get it, I get it. But, it’s always good to make a lasting first impression. Imagine for instance, you had a lawyer representing you at the court and he came in with a baggy suit, looking rather unkempt. Who would take that guy seriously? See the point I’m trying to drive home? They say that “Looking good isn't self-importance; it's self-respect." Now, we already told you what men like to see women wear, but what do the ladies love to see men wear? Actually, it’s not that complicated for the ladies, no, seriously!
1. First things first, smell good!
You could be out there looking like a snack but if you stink of sweat, that ruins it for us. Nothing as sexy as a man passing by and leaving his scent lingering on, or hugging you and you can still smell that amazing scent. It doesn’t even have to be an expensive designer perfume if you cannot afford it, just, don’t smell of sweat, you’d rather use Axe!
2. A well fitting suit.
Guys, please please, if you cannot wear a suit that fits perfectly, just look for a plan B. Walking around with a hanging crotch and a blazer with massive shoulders, or a really tight suit is an atrocity. Go to a tailor and get your measurements, okay?!
3. Good jeans.
We love to see men in the perfect pair of jeans. Nothing too tight nor too baggy. It's even better when styled with trendy jackets and shirts or tees. And while at it, could we please leave the sagging in the era where it belongs?
4. A nice leather jacket.
A man in a cute leather jacket is so sexy for some reason. Keep it real leather though, faux leather looks cheap.
5. A decent watch.
It doesn’t have to be a Rolex, but a nice watch always completes a look, be it a casual or official look.
There’s something really cute about men rocking an athleisure look, especially on weekends. Sweat pants and mandals, or a complete sweat pants co-ord set. Even better, sweatpants paired with a v-neck tee!
7. Good shoes.
Whether it’s sneakers or office shoes, the first thing that most women notice in a man is the shoes. A bad shoe will almost always ruin a good outfit so take not when shopping.
Okay boxers are fine, but briefs are sexier...this one is for those men who wear boxers that look like basketball shorts underneath. Baby what is you doing?
Bottom line? Smell good, groom, wear fitting clothes and you’ll be good to go!
