“Most classy men are stylish gentlemen, however not all stylish men are classy gentlemen”
To help all men around the world understand what it means to be classy, below are some things that make a man classy.
THE CLASSY MAN HAS A HIGH AMOUNT OF CONFIDENCE: A classy man is by default a bold, confident and fearless man. He believes that nothing is impossible to achieve and therefore he goes about taking risks, having positive expectations and achieving success. He knows how to carry himself very well and he is very comfortable in his own skin.
A CLASSY MAN MAINTAINS GOOD HYGIENE: That means showering every day, wearing a nice cologne and deodorant, brushing your teeth, grooming your beards [if you have beards], combing and brushing your hair etc. You must also wash your clothes more often. You should wash your underwear (vests and boxers/briefs) daily after wearing. Last but not the least, Always keep your room neat and tidy.
THE CLASSY MAN HAS A UNIQUE PERSONAL STYLE AND UNDERSTANDS THE FASHION AND STYLE RULES: It’s almost impossible to be classy without being stylish. A classy man uses fashion as a tool when it comes to finding specific wardrobe pieces that would highlight his personal style while ensuring they are appropriate. He understands the exact kind of clothes that are more appropriate for him in terms of shape, size, and colors.
THE CLASSY MAN KNOWS HE MUST NOT BREAK THE BANK TO LOOK GOOD AND BE STYLISH: The classy man understands value and quality. He also knows that “more expensive” doesn’t mean “more quality”. He is able to use simple resources to pull off a very nice look for any occasion be it formal or informal.
THE CLASSY MAN HAS A VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS TAILOR: A bad fit ruins a great piece of clothing. This is very common when the person in question have perhaps lost a significant amount of weight and still continues to wear same clothes. In this case, instead of wearing it this way it would be a good idea to hand it over to your tailor (a good tailor). Your tailor should be able to do a proper adjustment such that when next you wear it it’s as good as it was untouched. In addition, have your tailor make suits for you every now and then.
A CLASSY MAN TAKES HIS PASSIONS SERIOUSLY: A classy man knows what drives him, so he focuses on pursuing his passions ardently in a way that reflects his innate talent and creativity. He also knows that he’s strong and capable, even in his weaker moments. A classy man is out to get what he wants without deterring from his goals. He understands that his life is about service to others, not serving himself, and that’s what he does.
THE CLASSY MAN DOESN’T SMOKE CIGARETTES AND ONLY DRINKS SOCIALLY: Classy men smoke only the finest cigars if at all they have to smoke something. The classy man also prefers spirits over beer, coffee over tea, cocktails over red wine. If you choose to indulge in this do not abuse this privilege. Never smoke to impress anyone, only smoke during special occasions with your close friends and never get drunk while drinking.
THE CLASSY MAN IS MINDFUL OF WHERE HE HANGS OUT: A classy man is mindful of where he hangs out. He only hangs out in classy restaurants, hotels, and bars.
A CLASSY MAN IS WELL EDUCATED, WELL READ AND SPEAKS PROPERLY: Build a wide vocabulary and read often (and widely). Become more well-informed. A good vocabulary is crucial to sounding intelligent and being intelligent. Do not use your native dialect or pidgin English in your conversation in a professional setting such as at work or when transacting business. The only exception is when the communication is between two or more people who understand each others language and everyone is comfortable communicating in the language. In addition, avoid the use of curse or swear words totally, this shows a lack of class.
THE CLASSY MAN DOESN’T FIGHT: As a classy man, you are different and this could stir up envy and aggression among other guys [including friends] causing them to want to pick a fight with you at the slightest opportunity. Simply take the high road and just walk away, cos by fighting, you reduce yourself to a child.
A CLASSY MAN ATTRACTS THE ATTENTION OF MANY WOMEN BUT ONLY HAS EYES FOR HIS LADY: A classy man usually has other women competing to get his attention, but he will never take his eyes of his lady no matter the pressure from other women. He is someone who respects women and treats them the way they should be treated. Also, a classy man does not do hookups and he does does not patronize prostitutes.
A CLASSY MAN RESPECTS EVERYONE: He understands that his life is about service to others, not serving himself. A classy man listens to what everyone has to say. He never makes fun of other people. It’s disrespectful in every way to make fun of peoples’ imperfection.
A CLASSY MAN NEVER BRAGS ABOUT HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND NEVER WHINES ABOUT HIS PROBLEMS: Do not talk about yourself during conversations, or brag. Bragging is not classy in any way. Ladies will respect you and hold you in high regards if you are a good listener. Discuss only intelligent subjects. A classy man doesn’t whine or complain about his problems. Never complain about how the world has been unfair to you.
