maybe even 50 pounds right here in the midsection. It is you’ve got the stomach you’ve got this
gut which just sticks out and you’re doing your best to get rid of it. You know it’s not healthy, but you need to
dress for the body you have. Guys, this video is about dressing when you’ve
got a gut when you’ve got a beer belly, how to help cover that up. Guys, you’ve got to dress for the body you
have. And you can’t go into a big and tall section
because you’re not super tall maybe or you’re not really big as they define it, you just
simply have this extra weight right here and you want to dress in a manner that you can
present the best you. Guys, in this video I’m going to give you
five tips so that you can go do that. And, gentlemen I’m going to point you over,
if you have not seen my fifteen free e-books over at Real Men Real Style, you need to go
check these out. I go into a lot more than just what I’m talking
about in this video. I talk about sunglasses, I talk about accessories,
I talk about shoes, watches, everything is covered here. Because style is not just about your clothing
it’s also about how you present yourself, your accessories, and the man that you are
on the inside. All right, guys? Let’s get into the five tips. So, tip number one and you guys have heard
me say this. You need to get comfortable wearing a jacket. No other piece of clothing is going to do
a better job of hiding a gut of at least making you look larger in the shoulders and in the
arms than a jacket. That’s what this is specifically designed
for. And, guys when I say jacket, I’m not necessarily
talking suit jackets although I think suit jacket and if you decide to go casual, there
are so many options there and you can stand out from the crowd. But, sports jackets, this is a sports jacket
right here and, yes, you can wear them four seasons. I know some of you guys are saying, Antonio,
incredibly hot and, I’ll get into that in a second. But, for most of you guys, you can actually
find you can — I live in Wisconsin, I can tell you I can wear a sports jacket, yes,
even in the summer especially if it’s unlined. Maybe down in South Florida, I wouldn’t be
able to get away with it, but there are special materials. There are tropical light wools. You can get these jackets very pretty much
unstructured. But, let’s talk about other types of jackets. Jean jackets. Guys, jean jackets actually will help a large
man especially if you’ve got a gut, they will help you. The thing with jean jacket, so a lot of them
have a slimmer profile, so you’re going to go to want – you’re going to want one
you can actually button up. Another thing, look at a leather jacket. There’s a wide range of leather jackets. You can go with a fatigue, maybe something
a little bit longer, but a leather jacket is going to be a great way to build up the
shoulders, make your arms a little bit bigger. And all this does it doesn’t make your stomach
looks smaller, but what it does is make you look more proportioned and that is the key
point to pulling off a jacket. Now, tip number two is to wear long sleeve
shirts. And to look for shirts that actually have
epaulettes, that actually have double breast pockets. And I know some of you guys in hot weather
are saying, okay, Antonio tell me more about this. Guayaberas, go check them out all. All of a sudden, a guayabera and this is a
shirt specifically made to be worn longer and it’s going to look better on you than
simply if you’re wearing a tight t-shirt. And, that’s what a lot of guys with guts think
that they can pull off. And I will say stay away from t-shirts, always
look to go for shirt that’s going to be long sleeve. It’s just going to look more proportional. And there are so many materials out there
that are lightweight breathable that that is going to be just as cool if not cooler
than a t-shirt. And if it’s that bad, roll up the sleeves,
all the sudden it’s going to look more, again, it’s going to keep the proportions better
looking and, overall this is going to be a much better look. Now, I talked about the epaulettes on the
shoulders and the pockets. The reason you want to go for that is it’s
going to build up your chest it’s going to build up your shoulders. And you want to sometimes look for a little
bit of a rigid material something that’s going to give you a little bit of a point out here. Again, we’re looking to build up the shoulders,
there’s no way I can reduce the size your stomach, but overall I can affect the way
that we see. And that takes me to point number three which
is to have a monochromatic look and in general go for darker colors. So, darker colors and you’ve probably heard
this black is a slimming color. Women talk about this all the time, but it
does apply to guys. Basically, what we want is allow the eyes
to go up and down. What you don’t want to do is wear something
that draws attention to the midsection. So, belts that have a high contrast with what
you’re wearing, you don’t want to do those. Instead you want something — and you can
go with lighter colors you can go with medium colors, but I find darker are going to be
the best for slimming you up. But if you are a lighter-colored guy, then
simply make sure that everything you have is lighter colored that way again the eyes
can go up and down. Tip number four. Look for shirts look for jeans that have stretch
fabric in them. And the key here is that not that you need
stretch fabric because you want to wear it tight and you want it to stretch, no, that’s
going to be a horrible look. What you want though is as you move around
as you bend over that all the sudden the clothing is going to have a bit of a gap. So, whenever you go like this whenever you
move around it’s going to have a bit more stretch and it’s just going to be more comfortable. [0:05:09]
You don’t want to have hotspots. There are jeans many of them out there with
stretch fabrics and they — actually, they’ve come a long way. You want to go with a regular cut, do not
go with slim do not go with baggy, just go with our regular cut because I know that your
legs are, you know, for a lot of these guys they’re just they’re normal proportioned. It’s in and around the gut area and it’s
the waist that you want to pay attention to. So, make sure that they do not cut in your
waist. You’re going to probably want to go for a
lower rise that’s going to work. If you have a real issue, you can look at
trousers you could — can wear them high. You’re going to have to make sure the trousers
do fit in and around your stomach and you’re going to need to utilize suspenders. Tip number five. Get everything tailored and adjusted to fit
you properly. So, you’ve heard me say this before, but I
think with a man that is actually carrying a little bit more weight around the midsection,
I find that a lot of these guys with the beer gut, it goes straight out. It doesn’t necessarily go out on the sides. And what that means is that when we wear a
jacket you can actually have it brought in a little bit on the sides and it’s going to
give you a leaner cut. Now, again, you go in with darker colors,
I get up close, yeah, I can start to see that you’ve got a little bit of a pouch right here,
but still I can see that you’re well put together. And there’s a big difference between a guy
that is fat and sloppy and a guy that is sharp, large, and in charge. Very different, you know, type of feel and
people, you know, they’re going to be noticing this stuff. Now, all these works in with the points I
said earlier about wearing a jacket, wearing darker colors, going for long sleeve shirts. Now, with your shirts you want to make sure
especially in and around the stomach area, there’s no tension on the buttons. So, you may have to gets in — I talked about
tailoring getting the shirts actually custom-made. What you don’t want to do though is you don’t
want to get it too much tighter in and around the chest especially if your stomach is a
lot bigger. It’s probably going to be better to be a bit
loose right in here, but it is going to be something that you may want to look at custom
clothing. You definitely want to get everything adjusted
to fit. Also, I talked about trousers how sometimes
they cut in, you can actually have sometimes trousers opened up. You can have suspenders, buttons put right
onto those, so it’s going to be easier to wear. Or, you can actually even some cases they
can actually bring the jeans down just a tad. Now, it may not be worth it, I always think
it’s going to be better to find a pair of jeans than having them adjusted especially
up at the top. But, if it’s cutting into you, then look to
have I think they’re called comfort sides and basically with these comfort waists have
an elastic on the side. There’s a few companies that make these, but
you can sometimes have a tailor put them on it. But, if you’re out there search, you know,
searching for clothing, I like to actually have that on some of the trousers because
a lot of the bigger guys your waist is going to expand in and out. But, okay, guys that is it for the points. I have a lot more that I cover in my fifteen
free e-books over here. I’ve got stuff for all different body types,
accessories and watches and shoes and all this other stuff that you may need. But, guys I would love to hear from you down
in the comments, what are some of your best tips for guys that have a beer gut that have
a little bit of extra weight. If you’ve got some good tips, I would love
to hear them. Guys, that’s it. I’ll you see in the next video.
