How To Look Rich… Even If You’re Broke!


How To Look Rich… Even If You’re Broke! [0:00:00]
[Music] In today’s video, gents, how to look like
a million bucks when you’re not a millionaire. Tip number one, gentlemen, stick with classic
style. You want to go for simplicity. You want to go for elegance, you want to go
for timeless style, instead of the whimsical winds of fashion. The issue with trends is that they come and
go very quickly, and you can end up spending a lot of money on something that really is
out of season within a period of months versus with classic style. When you spend money here whether it’d be
five months whether it’d be five years sometimes 25 years, that item that you bought is going
to be able to be used. So, you can spend more money here and know
that you’re going to get more miles out of what you buy. And, guys, let me be clear. Classic menswear is more than just a well-fitted
suit. So, a leather jacket, white leather sneakers. Both of those, casual, but they’re still in
a classic man’s wardrobe. Next up, gents, you want to own less, but
you want to own higher-quality. And, by quality, I mean that everything that
you own you absolutely love and it’s interchangeable. So, by loving something, when you put it on
your body and you look at yourself in the mirror, you’re like, “Man, this thing just
makes me look better. I feel like a million bucks. The fit is spot-on. I love the way the fabric drapes. I love the function. This fits and it describes the man I want
to be without me even saying a word.” And, when it comes to interchangeability,
this is so that your – it means your trousers match your jackets, your shirts match your
shoes, everything goes. You could be blind, walk into your closet
put things together and it should actually produce a decent looking outfit. Now, guys, if you’re going to be buying anything
online and you want to save money, I highly recommend you check out today’s sponsor, Shoptagr. Seriously, gents, anything you want to buy

want to save money, grab Shoptagr. I’m linking to them down in the description. Use that link, it’s absolutely free. So, now, let’s get into individual pieces. Let’s start things off with shoes. Shoes are the foundation of a man’s wardrobe,
but literally this is what you’re standing on all day and it really depends on your professional
need. If you’re in the financial district in New
York City, you want something you can go in and out of meetings, something that’s going
to serve you well work with your suits and look good. And, I would recommend even you know before
you buy your third suit, maybe look to get a second pair of shoes. Something you’ll be able to rotate through
something that still is of good quality when you’re talking to your boss’s boss, he’s eyeing
you up for a promotion, you are sending the right signal. But, let’s say it’s really casual. You don’t really need dress shoes, you’re
more of a creative you’re out in San Francisco. You want to still go with a nice pair of sneakers. But, let’s say you’re out, I don’t know maybe
you’re in the Midwest. You’re in Des Moines, Iowa starting up a consulting
firm. It’s going to specialize in SEO for small
businesses. You realized you want to be approachable,
you still need to dress up a little bit nicer. Guys, people look at the shoes. You have the four seasons in the morning,
guess what? This is going to work. You can wear this with dark jeans, you could
dress it up with a sports jacket and a nice shirt, or you could dress it down maybe you
just want to wear a flannel shirt when you’re at work. The key is, guys, is understand this is the
foundation of your wardrobe, so don’t be afraid to spend good money on the right shoes. The next item on the list you want to dedicate
limited resources to to look like a million bucks, a great jacket. Whether it’d be casual whether it’d be
a sports jacket or a suit jacket. It really depends on your needs and what you’re
going to wear most often. But, a great looking casual jacket a great
looking formal jacket, this is outerwear this is something people see again and again. Key here is going to be fit, fabric, and function
– my style pyramid. When I’m talking about fit, it first on a
jacket needs to fit you in the shoulder points and it should fit you well in the torso. Jackets, when they don’t fit you well in the
torso whenever they’re too tight whenever they’re too loose just — they’re just not
going to give the same type of silhouette that gives you that strong masculine look. And, when I’m talking about fabric, I’m talking
about buy the best that you can afford. Some of you guys are going to have to look
around. Maybe go to a thrift store, maybe go into
a place where a bigger box store that’s having a sale within a sale, you’re able to make
a big purchase and save that money, but get something of higher quality. When it comes to suit, you want to be looking
at the materials, which leads us to the next section. [0:05:05]
So, my next tip here for you to be able to dress well on a budget, you need to be able
to identify the luxury materials. The first luxury material I want to talk about
is leather. You’re going to find it in a wide variety
of pieces of menswear from shoes to bags to luggage to straps on watches to belts. Good quality leather is expensive. And, you know that if they’re using an expensive
material to make the item that overall they’re going to pay attention to the other things;
the stitching, the construction, the style. So, that is why you want to look for quality
leather on the upper of your shoe. Right here, we’ve got a wholecut. What’s interesting about the whol cut is it
takes a very large piece of leather to make it, and they got to take it from the right
part of the animal that actually doesn’t have any blemishes. Therefore, when you see a pair of wholecuts,
you’re not going to see it in lower-end shoes. You’re only going to see this in higher-end
shoes. And, when you know that you know when you
spot it and it’s on sale that you probably got yourself a pretty good deal there. Next up, let’s talk about silk, most commonly
seen in neckties and pocket squares. Silk is also expensive to manufacture, more
expensive than polyester. So, when you see these items made from polyester,
it doesn’t mean that they’re necessarily bad, but it does mean that they’re using an inferior
less expensive material that cost less, therefore they probably cut corners on other places
in the construction. Next up, you’ve got cashmere. It’s a type of wool that comes from goats. You’re going to mostly see it in sweaters,
although occasionally you will also see it woven into a jacket, you’ll see it on scarves,
and even gloves. Cashmere is renowned for its softness. Now, there are types of wool that can get
almost as soft, but really it’s the individual fiber and the unique properties of cashmere
that give it its just beautiful touch. And, let’s not forget wool. So, wool you’ll commonly see it in sweaters,
other garments that want to have insulating properties. You’ll also see it in jackets. But, what’s the difference between wool and
worsted wool? So, worsted wool is going to be more tightly
woven wool specifically that has a longer yarn and is made to have these beautiful fabrics
and a nice drape that you see on most higher-end jackets. So, gents, the key point with those four materials
is that when a manufacturer uses them, it is one indicator of quality and can help direct
you to be able to make a smart purchasing decision when you don’t want to waste your
money. So, the next tip for looking like a million
bucks without spending it, gentlemen, is to take care of all the items of those luxury
goods I just talked about. So, if it’s dirty, if it’s stained, if it
has holes in it, if it smells, don’t wear it. I mean this seems obvious, right? And, those dress shoes, gents, they actually
need to be polished and it’s not just because of the look. They do look better when polished, but it
also protects the shoe from moisture. And, those sweaters, when they start to peel,
you should have a sweater shaver or just simply use a razor and go over them and get rid of
all that peeling. The point is you can own the clothing, but
if you don’t take care of it, all of a sudden your style all of a sudden your image is going
to go down. So, what about logos? Me, personally, I think a small logo is perfectly
fine. If you want to have your own logo like a monogram
on a shirt, perfectly fine. But, here’s the issue is when it becomes a
large logo, when you’ve got logos all over the place, when you are flaunting the logo. Guys, this is not — I think that looks tacky. Let me know in the comments if you agree,
disagree, but for me, I think logos should be simple, should be understated, and preferably
out of sight. So, now, let’s talk about accessories. And, I know we just talked about logos, how
they should be simple, understated. But, when it comes to certain accessories,
I’m not saying that you want to flash the logo, but the choice of certain brands can
send a signal that, hey, you’re willing to spend a little bit more money here and you
understand the quality. So, I know for sunglasses, I’m a big fan of
Maui Jim. I simply think they have some of the best
lenses out there. I like their designs. Now, when it comes to watches, anyone that
knows watches knows that Tudor is a great brand. And it took me a while to find this watch,
but I absolutely love it. I think it’s a great for my wrist size. And, anyone that’s into watches when they
see this they’re going to know that this is a great quality watch at a fair price and
really is a little bit harder to get and has a nice story to it. And, guys, putting all this together, one
of my favorite ways to look like a million bucks without spending much money is to level
up your base uniform. What I’m talking about here is your go-to
daily look. And, gents, this is so easy. For some of you, simply take those running
shoes swap them out with the white sneakers. Or maybe you want to change up your everyday
coat, ditch that Patagonia, try a classic jean jacket. All this being said, gentlemen, don’t forget
that manners maketh the man. So, how to be a modern gentleman? What are the essential manners that every
man needs to know? Guys, I’ve got you covered with this video
right here. I will link to it down in the description. Go check it out. [0:09:35] End of audio

  • No thank I rather BE RICH instead and then look like one.

  • Early gang

  • Some good advice here, especially on the subject of logos (small, discreet) and properly looking after what you buy (shoe trees are worth the outlay imo).

  • Hey antonio

    Large lapels or Short Lapels ?

  • Antonio, how do you get your collar to stay up so crisply?

  • Also, I love that jacket you wore at the beginning and end of the video. Would be great to know where to get one.

  • The goal is not to look rich, the goal is to be rich.

  • Logos are fine for the young folks. I've actually abandoned some brands that I like their clothes, but everything they have has a logo on the left chest (looking at you A&F). These days, maybe because I've grown older, I prefer a cleaner look and choose to use accessories to accentuate my outfit. Logos only look like a distracion

  • Big logos are the worst! I might let it slide when I wear a sweatshirt (with the brand on the chest) with a pair dark jeans and white sneakers. What do you guys think?

  • A fake Rolex

    Oh wait you are broke

  • I've nailed how to look poor, so looking rich is going to be easy…….

  • Great outfit Antonio,

  • Great outfit Antonio, very classic and nice-tailored)

  • Looking sharp in those jackets, sir.
    Edit: About the logos, if it's bigger than half of my palm then it's too large. A No-No.

  • Really smart comments in the vid.
    I've always bought quality, classical stuff over quick expiration items.

  • "Worsted wool"… that terminology is funny to me.

  • Re logos it depends. The more "semi formal", the more classical, I'll veer towards barely noticeable or even no logo present.
    If I'm in the pub wearing jeans/whatever then a sporty type logo thing is fine.
    If I'm wearing a lapel jacket etc, then no logos/VERY small ones.

  • A tutorial on how you should be a fake person should not be on internet. Why are you encouraging people be look like something they're not? You have the word real 2 times in your channel name and you make a tutorial on how to be fake.

  • Ad was too long clicked out.

  • Your points are well thought out thank you Semper Fi

  • This is one of your best vids. Thanks.

  • Great tips, for guys in the UK and Ireland a really good online clothes and footwear shop is Samuel Windsor, I have bought shoes, trousers, and shirts recently at bargain prices, Goodyear welted stitching brogue shoes, great quality moleskin trousers. It's possible to get shoes, trousers, and a shirt, for under 100 euro at sale prices. Watching your videos Antonio made me look around for good quality at affordable prices, and up my style a few notches, you have got me wearing sports jackets and blazers with my moleskins, and I ditched my Nike trainers for brogue shoes, because they feel more comfortable for every day wear. Glad I found your channel. Another tip for guys buying a new belt, AliExpress for sliding belt and buckle, 4 euro delivered free. Keep up the good work.

  • we are here because we are poor.

  • Whats with the dislike? This is for educational purposes.

  • Damn you look good Antonio 👌🏼

  • 🙂

  • Only losers try to LOOK rich.

  • The logo factor seems interesting, thought in my opinion if you can rock one solid logo shirt or jacket it would be cool , but you shouldn’t mess to much and carelessly with this side of fashion , great channel btw !

  • Interesting video. Personally, the more I've made in life, the more I go to the effort to dress like a working-class man outside of business and more formal events with my peers. I also drive a 2003 Corolla literally everywhere unless it's a car event where I take my classic cars or a pleasure drive through the mountains. Even this is a pain because it means I can't stop at gas stations in the not so well off parts of town. Sometimes I'll take one of my old muscle cars to a local dive bar where I'm a regular, but that's it. Remember guys, the wealthier you appear, the more of a target you are for gold diggers, scammers, beggars, and thieves. I quit wearing wristwatches over a decade ago because of this and I never, ever, wear bling like a ring. I even carry only 2 cards, my medical cards, and my DL with maybe a couple 20s in my wallet in case I get mugged.

  • "Gents" No…

  • Thanks for your useful tips!

  • Manners
    maketh
    Man

    I see what you did there

  • Since when is a Tudor Black Bay hard to come across 🤣🤣🤣

  • How to look rich: stop caring what others think and dress for yourself. Be comfortable. Feel confident.

  • Totally agree, buy fewer high quality pieces, and don't wear an advertisement sign unless it's your job.

  • No big logos! Unless you're getting paid for wearing it, small logos or no logos are best

  • Step 1
    Be white

  • High five for the new Black Bay!

  • Surprised there was no mention of hygiene and fresh haircut, clean shave.

  • This is a keeper! This is a great video that I'm sure I will be going back to again and again.

  • I've been doing the "how to look poor" my entire life.

  • can you make a video on how to look broke when you're rich for those of us that want to live a stealth wealth lifestyle?

  • Finalmente o vídeo que eu mais esperava

  • Cheers for da info Antonio 👍

  • It's all good advice, but if you just have a job then it's just about being comfortable and stylish in your clothes for yourself and social reasons. You do get treated better in stores, and I've found better quality brands fit better, are better made and are more practicable, ie Barbour, Viyella and Brioni (if you can manage to get a second hand Jacket on e bay the fit is superb). I'm 55 so find most high street retailers are aiming for the younger generation. I'd rather pay less but there is a difference from your general high street field jacket and a Barbour Skipton. People are all different but i like that i can feel comfortable in my clothes whatever the weather, year round and that's more important to me than, two weeks baking on some cheapo holiday.

  • In a professional setting I think logos are a bad idea in general, even when it's a designer logo on the sleeve or breast, but in a casual setting logos and graphics are fine. I'm also a fan of geometric prints though, and I like those for some professional settings. However, I also avoid professional settings that require very formal clothing, because formality in general makes me feel very uncomfortable and as if I'm putting on a mask. I'm very much a lower class kind of guy, and I just do not and can not fit into a higher class kind of setting. It's like putting a square peg in a triangular hole.

  • I found allen edmonds at a thrift store.. cleaned it.. bought it for 4 dollars but it makes me feel like a BILLION BUCKS!.

  • Nice Suit Sir

  • I have a friend here in south Florida who is all about logos (good guy) but this dudes nutts…hahahah adidas tracksuit with Nike shoes etc. Dude needs help hahahaha

  • Question: is indochino of high quality

  • I want to dress like Antonio. Ooh rah!

    Great stuff!

  • Logos scream.. the loudest guy in the room is also the weakest

  • That blazer and white shirt is the look i love… you look excellent, the pocket square reallly adds that finishing touch

  • How to be a poser

  • Quite simply: Thank you

  • No wonder why everyone thinks im rich.

  • Gonna be walking into the local supercar dealership anytime now dressed like that

  • Hey Antonio, I was just wondering when the scents should arrive for that brand you did that ghost video on.
    I can’t recall the estimated delivery date

  • I was at a store recently where absolutely EVERYTHING in men's casual wear was emblazoned with some huge logo. I hate logos. I thought there was a defect on my Ray-Ban's until I realized they had stuck their logo in the top corner.

  • would u say Ralph Lauren is a good brand for quality?

  • I've got no problem with larger logos as long as there's just the one

  • I drive a 1984 Dodge aries as my daily driver. Have owned it since 2009. However, I do make over $83k per year before bonuses and benefits. I may look rich with what I wear but I'm often judged by what I drive. This has it's advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side my house is paid off and I have no expenses besides utilities, food and monthly charities. If I was to purchase a new car I would really be interested in a four door Hellcat car. They look very aggressive and they're fairly quick for a full size car.

  • You can never go wrong with a good pair of combat boots

  • love this channel soooo much!!
    all the info is precise and down to the point!

  • What brand shirt is that?

  • LOOK RICH.
    A TAKERS TARGET.

    DRESSING POOR IS BEST

  • Good video for the "wannabees." 🤐

  • Could you do a video for bigger men??? I know alot of us who love and follow you would love more content on that boss!!! Thank you

  • Las matemáticas están mal, no son tantas combinaciones posibles.

  • Here's a tip I've learned recently, if you're a shorter guy, get a Fulton Top Coat from Peter Manning in a neutral color. I purchased the cashmere one in charcoal and it looks great with jeans, my tailored suit, Henley shirt, everything. It's going to be my go-to this winter for sure. Great buy!

  • 😀💜✌🙏

  • Possum fur is king of the winter jumper fabric.

  • Hah everyone needs to watch this video at .25 speed

  • 1:14 Jesus!! how pale is that guy, get some sun bro!

  • Why people can't be teaching to stay real. That's real shit.

  • Logo means advertisement…I am not advertising for free Lol

  • Outstanding, great advise as usual. God bless you, your family and business.

  • The richest people I know never look rich.

  • Funny the riches guy I know who lived in a 8 million dollar home and owns a true yacht. This guy is truly wealthy and a kind person. He wears shorts from from Walmart and a polo shirt. He does wear nike sneakers… lol

  • Moment i saw the black bay… subscribed lmao.

  • The goal is to be rich, not to look rich.

  • Why should someone wear big company logos if you dont get paid for it?

  • if a logo is bigger than the palm of your hand (besides band shirts) then it's probably too big, and everyone but you thinks it's gaudy.

  • Big logos small mind poor mentality…

  • I always go for the quality brands with small logos. Go for classy compared to flamboyant every time!

  • Antonio, could you please make a video about wearing a vneck t-shirt with a blazer or everyway you can wear a vneck t-shirt. Thanks. Looking forward to the content.

  • Great video Antonio
    Haven't commented in a while but still been watching every video 💪

  • Robberies are on tve rise in England. Sooo. How to appear not to be stinking rich?

  • As a very young man, I would wear big logos. Now that I'm older and more refined, I realize that a small logo or no logo is best.

  • Mouth and face expression 🤣🤣

  • I think one of the worst shirts that a guy can wear is one with a huge logo advertising a brand of beer.

    It subconsciously gives people a negative opinion of you, even if you are genuinely a nice and good guy.

  • The bigger the logo the less I trust the product

  • Small logo if visible it's fine but, when it goes into a larger scale, it becomes flashy. I do find it to he tacky, cheap, if you would say

  • Small logo if visible it's fine but, when it goes into a larger scale, it becomes flashy. I do find it to he tacky, cheap, if you would say

  • Maybe a video showcasing different looks, that image of the thick blue shirt, white trousers and dark leather brown belt inspired me to go get the same.

  • dude i m a doctor need shoes which are blood resistant

  • Wearing a Tudor also means your into watches, because only watch geaks will now the quality and history behind Tudor.

  • Military surplus is good quality material and construction…classic design to the nth degree.

  • will I be able to wear my Apple smart watch but still look professional?
