Sex Code. How to make a lasting impression.

Clothes actually do a lot more for us than we think..

What we wear and how we present ourselves changes the minds way of thinking. The way in which you present yourself while wearing a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt is much different than if you were wearing a suit. Our mind adapts, and it is proven that men feel more powerful when wearing formal attire. A suit gives a person a feeling that they look good, and mean business. It can instantly give you motivation and boost your confidence, and confidence is what people are looking for. Confidence allows onlookers the idea that you are clean, put together, and successful.

Our eyes and mind are drawn to colors and patterns within our surroundings. Appearance makes a difference, especially in this day with social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. It has never been easier to follow what is happening within the menswear realm at this second. So whose opinion matters most? Well, of course, that of the onlooker. Let’s explore:

We all love people who look like they take care of themselves. 

Don’t be fooled if you don’t think someone is looking at your Instagram feed at this moment (Yes a lot of people do the pre-approval before). People are looking for someone who is clean, mature, and a little bit of style to go with the package. It is in our own nature that we judge on appearance first, before personality. We want to see a clean with some personality and not too boring and plain. Grey and navy suits are popular color’s within men’s suit today, and if you buy the right shade you will have the luxury of wearing it year round. But to really stand out above the pack, a subtle pattern and a nice cleanly shaved face. A little extra thought goes a long way

Picking the more risky suit over the plain

A subtle pattern in a suit, shirt or tie is appreciated. A prime example of someone to take style tips from would be the notorious UFC MMA fighter “Connor McGregor”. Not only are his suits stylish, but he is a little more daring. You can tell that when he is dressed in one of his own custom suits, that he exudes confidence. In the end, it is not about getting a suit that you think you can pull off, it’s about telling yourself you can pull off anything.

It’s all about the details

The socks, pocket square, watch, and tie. Details mean effort, details mean organized, details mean you care and details are loved. The generic blue, black or gray tie is great, don’t get us wrong. But what really makes you stand out from the pack is when someone sees you wear a tie with a beautiful design, such as one from Drake’s of London. Clothing to men should be considered to be an investment. If you are on a budget many cost effective brands exist in the marketplace that look tasteful and are of quality. We suggest making sure you do your research to make sure the product you are buying will last you for years to come.

It is not all about the dollar signs

It is very easy to make a low price-point suit look like that of a luxury house. Simple things such as tailoring show that you have taken the time and effort. A majority of the time little things need to be altered as it is rare that one can walk out the door with a perfectly fitting garment. Simple things like making sure the shoulders sit properly, or the sleeves to the proper length on your wrists. Don’t be overwhelmed and think all people care about labels. The suit doesn’t need to be Armani, Tom Ford or Prada to look good. Lots of affordable options can be tailored to fit you can look like a million dollars. Mr. Derk carries brands that have are of the best quality and are easy on your pocket book. The best part is now a majority of them are on sale. Affordable brands such as Jack Victor, SAND, Tiger of Sweden and much more are made within Canada and Europe, ensuring the sharpest pricing.

Finding the right suit does not have to be a lot of work but it does take effort. All people want is for you to put in a little effort and show that you are able to look after yourself.
