You may have read in the Globe that Boston lounges and restaurants are requiring that their male patrons to dress-up.
Advice to the guys: Don't playa hate. Congratulate! By abiding to the dress code, you will increase your chances to eliminate the competition and to finally get her attention. Layers in your style make you look sophisticated and mature. Here's your chance to look like the man she sees in the magazines, on the red carpet, and in her dreams.
We are in New England. The cold seasons are longer than the warm ones here. Learn to layer up versus to buck up, because you will only have opportunities to show off your six-packs 2 months out of 12.
Finally to my big and sexy guys, a well-fitted jacket may visually take a few inches off horizontally, but add few vertically.
