There is a theory among those who pick up women as an art called Peacocking. The concept is to visually draw attention to yourself through clothing choices. Some wear russian style floppy eared hats or WW1 Pilot goggles, all is in place to draw attention to yourself in a crowd. I personally prefer suits. I feel comfortable in a suit and it fits my style and demeanor.
I get it, you are married… but don’t you want your wife to still notice you in a crowd? You are reading this article, so I think it is fair to say you care.
Let’s start with a shirt, relatively low risk of money to make the change and test the waters with the wifey. Need a guide? Darker skin tone – go with yellows, pinks and mint green. Lighter skin tone – go with purples, baby blues or a bright burgundy. With the simple dark suit you have in the closet all of these colors will bring an eye catching contrast to your look. Plus, those colors look great without a tie. Purple, my favorite color, is the liner in nearly every suit I own. It is a regal color associated with royalty. Pink is the new power color, business men rock the light pink like women rock a little black dress at a cocktail party. Orange can work as well. I get a lot of compliments wearing my “Chicago Bears Orange” colored shirt with a brown suit.
