And "Massdrop Panta" sounds like a spring break destination.

What was that - "Mass Drop Panties"? Sounds more like something that is done at a spring break destination . . .

For a fat man you're not very cuddly.

Not nice, gentlemen.

You're right. Should have never brought up those photography skills. Totally uncalled for

What exactly does an image consultant do? I have seen that term tossed around more and more...

 

People hire them to tell them how to dress and what clothes to buy? Or do they consult on things like wardrobes for movies??

 

Or is "image consultant" just a term for someone that is likely jobless, insolvent, and dresses well to pretend that they're a hot-shot?

Probably a lot in the latter category. But I'm more so in the first. I own part of a small shirt retailer, I spend most of my time in developing business images such as public speaking, business dress, and connecting people with other industries.

A lot of the "rise" in popularity has been bc of that AlphaM guy who never really gives great information out. He's more of a personal stylist without the personal touch.

He's a plague to the industry. I work with a lot of lawyers, entry-level politicians, and pro athletes I have to spend a few months detoxifying their minds. He's dirty in the way he does business and dishonest about his products.

For myself, I never charge for my services if you're using me for you're wardrobe seems to be working so far.

I have to admit that I kind of wrinkle my nose at image consultants. You seem to have a good head on your shoulders, though. Besides that your suits seem to fit you better than that Alpha M guy. So you have that going for you.

If it was my only source of income I wouldn't be doing it. My normal retail is much more conservative then my personal wardrobe, more like the average business wear. With my mtm more is possible but most clients just want nice fitting conservative Midwestern clothing.

I'm very much a shirt retailer before an image consultant. I normally just introduce what I do as a small business owner.

People like teaching men's fashion, alphaM, Real Men Real Style (probably the best dressed online source) really take away from the personal service and support you can make with a local clothier.

I'm a recovering law student so my normal client I've looked for has been lawyers. I've been dressing some firms for awhile now and have finally made it to name partners in the area. I'm just hoping what I do isn't a lost art with this Internet wave of online "experts."
