Vintage Watch Blog.
So, I hope by now, you've learned enough that you can never make a new first impression. To make things even more difficult, people size you up and make judgements in the matter of seconds. Everyone does it; it's build into our DNA as a defense mechanism. But nowadays, this amazing Human skill is used more to determine possible relationships, business dealings and possible friendships. Okay, so what do men look at when they size up other men. Now, there is the obvious: body language, confidence, clothing, cufflinks, car, position of power... The list goes long, and it all happens in seconds.
If you're a Woman reading this, you may wonder..., why are guys sizing each other up anyway? Men want to know what they're up against. Can I trust this person? May a friendship develope? Can I see myself doing business with him? Do I even want to listen to him? Is this dude cool?
Over the course of several years, I've noticed two things that almost all men look for other than the obvious. Either the shoes he is wearing, his watch, or both. They do say you can tell a lot about a man by his shoes. And I've heard many men say you can tell a lot about a man by his watch - Robert Downey, Jr. has noted to say this many times publicly. But who cares about him.
Guys, before you go out and buy some new shoe at the local discount shoe store for $50, think twice. I know not everyone can afford this, but the reality is, good dress shoes for men start at around $200. If you're paying less but have the money, stop what you're doing. And if you don't have the money - save for it or take a zero interest deal or something. If a cobbler cannot resole the shoe it's likely junk. Look for shoes made in the USA or in Europe. Good shoes should be real leather both inside and out. Shoes are a big deal. And in business, many studies suggest that shoes can make the second most important impression after body language, while watches usually come in third. What we say is toward the bottom of the list believe it or not.
It's a competitive world out there gentleman. I find I win everytime when I'm not afraid to be myself when choosing these items. Sometimes conservative and classic, while other times eccentric and interesting. When you be yourself and not try to be another person; you're confident in yourself. When you can get to the point where your style is your own, that is when you can stop worrying about these things or even worst, ask advice from a friend or spouse. Not that their opinion doesn't matter, but it shouldn't make the decision. It's your world guys, make the best of it and design it yourself; remember you're the architect. Peace out.
