Men are told two things, when it comes to facial hair. First, women love a smooth face, therefore you must learn how to shave, and shave every day; secondly, women love a man who looks like a man, and that means he must have facial hair. The compromise of the two is the 5 o’clock shadow, which is a style that’s difficult for many of us to keep up. Last week, I started a poll to discuss this very issue; but the results came back a bit more mixed than I anticipated. It seems there isn’t a clear-cut answer to the question of facial hair, although more women (49% of those who have responded to the poll) seem to appreciate it than not (27% of responses), but not just any facial hair does the trick.

This month, I’m starting with a new experiment. I’m fond of my facial hair, but, have decided for a month to walk around clean-shaven. I’m doing this to see if it provides better dating opportunities, or if I’m looked at by women different. As I embark on this venture, I wanted to ask women, what are your opinions on facial hair. Yay? or Nay?

Men’s fashion is a tough nut to crack. While there’s many websites and resources, finding affordable, reasonable fashion ideas and deals, is quite hard. This wasn’t until friend, buddy, and dating coach Thomas Edward, pointed me to Dappered.com, a website dedicated to Affordable Men’s Style. This website is a treasure trove of great styles ideas for men, including deals, and where to find great looking, but inexpensive fashion ideas. There’s some great articles, and after looking through the website, I’ve found some great deals, and advice for men to manage their style. Check out the website Dappered.com, and I would highly recommend reading their article on ways to purge your wardrobe. Very helpful advice!

A strong fashion sense is welcomed while dating. The clothing you choose stays a lot about yourself. Wearing a graphic-t on a first date will often send the wrong message. But what about color? Does the color of your outfit matter more than the fashion style? Will you get a better response from wearing the color red over the color blue; is green a non-starter for the first date? Color is tricky, because it provokes different reactions from different people; seeing the color red provides a sense of excitement, as the color blue can give a calming and relaxing effect. Match.com recently discussed the effects of wearing certain colors on a date. While the color of your clothing may have some effect on your date, but you shouldn’t pull out the all red outfit for an important date.
There’s a few things you should know about color and your wardrobe.

I asked good friend Norma Germain to write a guest post about fragrance. Norma Germain is married to fragrance designer, Michel Germain. Together they have designed fragrances for Victoria’s Secret, Bloomingdale’s, and Macy’s. Model and inspiration behind “Sexual Sugar” perfume, she can be found dishing out tips on dating, flirting, perfume, and cologne on her Sexual Perfume Blog.
O.k., I know, buying cologne is the furthest thing from your mind right now. You’ve dismissed wearing anything beyond a drugstore aftershave (if you put on any scent at all). Buying aftershave is quick and dirty. You walk over to the drugstore aisle labelled “personal hygiene”, zoom in on a forest green or brown bottle, walk up to the cashier, and leave with a bag that looks as if it’s holding something any real man uses (razors, condoms, gum). After all, walking into a department store’s fragrance section is about as manly as walking into a flower shop to buy a bouquet for your man-pad.
Oh, you are so naive.
Drugstore aftershave is fine. It does the trick, making you smell nice. But do you really love it? Does it really suit your personality and the way you want to be viewed by others, including women? Is it getting you what you really want … an ambush by Ms. Gorgeous? [Read The Rest Of This Entry]

Barney’s is best known for its selection of high-end fashion; so when there’s an opportunity to grab great clothing at a discounted price, I keep my eyes focused. Barney’s is having their regular warehouse sale from February 17th to March 6th, 2011, with a 50 – 75% discount on their entire selection. The warehouse sale will take place on 255 W 17th Street, between 7th and 8th Ave. For those in LA, the sale ends on February 21st and is at the The LA Convention Center, Kentia Hall.
Some tips for navigating the warehouse sale.
Days tend to have different beginning and ending times, so be sure to visit the website for the proper times and dates.
During the weekends, things tend to get very hectic, so arrive early (usually when people are at brunch), there will be less of a crowd to navigate though!
Visit the sale near the beginning and browse what’s available, new items arrive throughout the entire sale, so visit again near the end to see what new things have arrived.

Purchasing books, CDs, computers, and other items from an online store seems like a no brainer. When it comes to clothing, especially underwear, I’m often skittish. The thought of someone handling my underwear, putting it into a box, and shipping it to me, gives me some pause. If you think about it, it’s the same process that occurs when you purchase your underwear from a retail store. The underwear doesn’t magically appear on a set of shelves or racks.

A key to dating is having a good wardrobe. Women look at our clothing and determine if we’re a good match by it. Not keeping tabs of fashion or wearing the same worn shoes or jeans to every date makes you less attractive to the opposite sex.
Women do a better job at maintaining their wardrobe than men. While I don’t get their need for having a million shoes and dresses, there is some method to the madness. Women often tweak their wardrobe, every so often the take a shopping trip to see what’s available and what they like. What I’ve learned from this is, I need to periodically visit my wardrobe and add to it. This applies to every aspect of my wardrobe, including my underwear.

I was never comfortable with accessorizing (wearing rings, wrists straps, etc,) but after my shopping trip a month ago, I’ve become addicted (Laurie you have created a monster!) Over the past month I’ve sought different accessorizes (primarily rings and straps) that would match my new outfits. There’s plenty of ways a guy can accessorize, but it must fit within the boundaries of the style. An example: I’m following a layered casual look, this means scarves, wrist straps, and rings are all within my boundaries. Other styles may include arm straps, chains (which I frown on), and hats (i.e. Kangol’s.) Before deciding on which accessorizes to purchase, take a moment to browse though AskMen’s Fashion section (especially the seasonal fashion preview area) or a male fashion magazine. Pay attention to what people are wearing, the type clothing style and which style you feel the most comfortable. Once you have a style chosen, begin to determine the accessorizes that will compliment the style. In most cases, a ring and wrist wear are necessary; for the colder months, hats or scarfs.
