@Wood thanks dude, that means a lot coming from you! You identified the bane of my fashion existence: having to choose between the best looking shoes on one hand, and maxing out my height on the other. Those all black shoes are elevator shoes with an advertised 4 inch height increase (really it's more like 3-3.5 inches), and they definitely look a bit goofy with slim fitting pants. Lately my philosophy is go for maxed style during the day, go for maxed height at bars/clubs. I'm on the fence with first dates.
@willtyler9 Believe it or not I've done basically all my clothes shopping the last couple years on Amazon. I started with the suggestions in the GLL guides, then followed the "Recommended" stuff Amazon showed me and found a bunch of other stuff. I can't try stuff on before buying it, but I can usually return stuff for a full refund if it doesn't fit well. Wood probably has suggestions for good stores to check out. If there's any item in particular you want to check out I can post the link to it.
Its really hard to know what fashion works these days. Mens fashion is all over the shop. Dog tags and bandanas are really cringey these days. How to be stylish without spending hundreds of dollars. Ill keeo an eye on your style progression for things to steal. Tighting fitting shirts on a great figure seem to always be fashionable though.
Bandanas are actually pretty prevalent in certain scenes, like music festivals. I also wear them at the beach sometimes. I'm gonna wear one to Beyond Wonderland tonight.
Are they "in"? It depends on who you ask, and I have mixed feelings about following fashion trends too closely. I guess I'm more worried about things being "out", like anything that is generally seen as stupid or dorky looking, rather than things that just aren't "in" right now. Take a look at this:
Some of these guys look good in my opinion. A lot of them (see pic 22 for example) look absolutely fucking ridiculous. I was reading about on what's "in" right now, and apparently super baggy pants are in!? At some point last year you know what was in: fucking onesies. I don't care how "in" it is. You'll never catch me alive outside wearing a damn onesie (that isn't part of a costume).
Incidentally, one of the guys there is wearing a dog-tag shaped necklace, though it appears to be wood not metal (pic 25). He's one of the ones I think looks pretty good. Turtleneck and sport coat/overcoat is a classic look.
The "hot" Instagram models like magic_fox are very minimalist. They barely do layering (if simply wearing a jacket even really counts as layering, I guess it does), and like you said they mostly wear form-fitting plain, non-graphic neutral-colored clothes, then make sure they have a good fit body that shows off through these clothes. I used to worry about layering and combining all sorts of colors like these guys in the GQ link, but at least personally I think most of them look like clowns. Fashion isn't about what I like, it's about others because I'm presenting myself to other people. But I have to wonder if anyone who doesn't work in the fashion industry thinks those guys look good. When I was a kid I liked bright loud colors. Starting about 5 years ago I flipped and now I rarely do much with non-neutral colors. I find it more effective to have a small "pop" of loud color in an accessory or maybe a shirt beneath a jacket. That floral shirt is about as loud as I like to get.
Soon I'll start sharing other styles I do too, that aren't necessarily geared toward being sexy. I often do a "smart casual" thing at the office, and while I don't really have any opportunities, I also like getting "dressed up" in suits. Something I've been wanting to do for a while is on the weekend, suit up and go do AA drills or approaches at the mall or something. I'm curious to see what kind of reactions I get.
Here’s the look I rocked first night of Beyond Wonderland. The bomber jacket is from the GLL style guide. I didn’t like it when I saw it there (didn’t think it looked good on the model) but then I saw NSA wearing it and that changed my mind.
This is the kind of style I tend to rock at my office. It’s more “well dressed” than sexy so I wouldn’t recommend it for dates or going out or anything, but I enjoy the art of Looking Good in all avenues. I’m a big fan of contrast collar/cuff dress shirts.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
