OK, I'm the OP, grateful to all who posted. As for the advice "Just be yourself - women will like you for being yourself", for most guys that will earn them a long string of evenings alone with Mr. Hand, and then they'll find a wife. I am successful with women, thank you, and have a good idea of what it takes to be in a fulfilling, long-term relationship AND how to pull off a fun, quick conquest. Not interested in debating with moralizers. I am simply looking for tips on how to remain physically attractive as I get older (I pick up at least a couple of good tricks every year). I agree that being fit is key - having a lean and muscular body is an incredibly powerful attractant. Though as long as you are in decent shape, clothes can minimize the difference between a so-so and a great body (especially in winter). I find that the importance of hair cannot be underestimated. I have had a few haircuts where, before I walked into the establishment, women were essentially ignoring me, and after they were ALL looking and the compliments came fast and furious. Haven't figured out how to maintain this - the best such haircut cost $100 in Los Angeles, and for some reason, the stylist couldn't duplicate the initial style/effect in subsequent tries. An interesting aside here is that, when I where my hair slicked back with a sportcoat/suit and slacks, most women aren't really into it, but a few get really turned on, even sexually (though they tend to be the gold-digger types). I sometimes wear my hair like this as a default when it gets too long but I don't feel like going in for a haircut. Also, with clothes, I pretty much have done what Dasher1 suggests (thanks for the advice - that was an excellent post). But the funny thing is, sometimes I get the best results by doing something totally different - the other day I sort of accidentally put together an outfit composed of Ralph Lauren Purple Label leather pants, a fairly tight-fitting Paul Smith dress shirt sporting narrow brown and crimson vertical stripes not tucked in and brown Testoni ostrich leather shoes, and women really seemed to like that one, I know not why (maybe my big, muscular rear end? LOL; women always say that they find a small one attractive). Sometimes I wonder if the best approach for the above-stated purpose is to have a closet full of high-quality SF-approved staples bought at 80-90% off on Ebay and SF worn basically by the rules, and then to combine this with one or two eye-catching, colorful and/or fashion forward "stunning" pieces bought at "full price" (which is what I consider in-store after-Christmas sale prices) from Saks/Neiman/name boutiques like Rick Owens leather jackets, Burberry Prorsum sportcoats, Etro trousers, Berluti-type shoes (hopefully made by Corthay, G&G, Lobb, etc.) that are striking without being tacky or too loud. So, Dashing1, I guess you are saying that, when looking for such "centerpieces", I should focus on watches and shoes? As for my physical traits, I am of average height with a muscular body, brown hair, hazel eyes and pale skin. Dressing to suit my personality/background, I would go for (relative to American fashions) an intelligent, dressed-up and eccentric look with some eye-catching colors (pinks, purples and green) to go with basics (browns, navies, grays and blacks). I live in Tokyo, so I can get away with (and like) fashion-forward stuff ala Dior Homme, Thom Browne, Tom Ford, Paul Smith and TAT. DeanCorso, I also found your post interesting. Though you were not going there, "peacocking" theory involves wearing/having something totally glaring and over-the-top so that girls who are interested in the first place will have an excuse to talk to you. Also, FWIW, women here love the well-known, GQ-type labels (no surprise I know), but I am trying to move away from that to some extent. AlwaysDressed, yours is exactly the sort of advice I was looking for (and complete with photos!), thank you. And ppllzz, thanks for the RLBL commendation - I dig their stuff and have received multiple compliments on RLBL dress shirts; haven't bought a suit from them yet though - my last suit purchase was a new (and perfect-fitting) grey striped Isaia, sold to me through SF for $500 by musicguy (a stand-up guy).
