Looking old?

Hi Antonio,

I’m 23 and in graduate school. I’ve never cared too much for how I dressed. Additionally, being 5’5 and 110lb makes a lot of clothing too big for me. Also, I look young for my age. I often get carded twice at some bars and people confuse me for a teenager sometimes. So my question is, how should someone that look very young in the face and in the body adjust his style so that it doesn’t look like the clothing is too “grown up?”, or is it that picking right clothing will naturally make me look older and I shouldn’t worry about looking out of place in “grown up” clothe/accessories? I’m also considering the future where I will most likely to be a professor at a university where I can get away with business casual clothing 95% of the time.

Thanks, cheers!

ps: your advice on shopping on Asian online stores is fantastic.

  1. of course, I obviously want to look older and grown up, but just not doing it awkwardly.

  2. Fit is going to be the most important thing for you. I’d probably reccomend a sports jacket that helps make you look a little taller, rather than a full suit (too formal for business-casual) or blazer (can often make people look younger).

  3. Antonio gives a lot of good tips in his vids, tips of style and NOT fashion. One of the interesting things he has mentioned had to do with men dressing as teenagers or something like that. A well fitted suit, sports coat and nice dress shirts are great options to better how you look. He explains how the suit jacket is a great piece to make a man look more masculine. He had a promotion going on about some material that is supposed to contain tons of info. Good luck!
