Men are sensitive creatures, and many of them still don't like to talk about fashion. These two facts make it very difficult to tell a man that he doesn't know how to dress himself. Though style consciousness has grown among males thanks to menswear bloggers and sites like this one, to paraphrase the President, most of America still clings to their cargo shorts and their hoodies. If you walk up to a guy and say "Nice shirt," most men will think you're just trying to sell them something.
And so, the fashion forward among us have a problem. Just as with any worthy cause, a stylish man wants to win converts. It isn't just that he wants someone to go to sample sales with. The sartorially inclined man knows that life is better when you dress well. He wants other men to experience the joy of stunting. The problem is that most men would rather continue living a life of unexamined frumpery. How do you convince a friend whose closet is filled with t-shirts he got for opening credit cards in college that he needs to change his ways? How do you tell a friend he dresses terribly?

Different varieties of fuccboi fashion require differing approaches. Let's talk about some best ways to get your boy looking sharp without coming at him too sharply.
