It doesn't fit my look or appearance. I don't have the all American look. I've always looked better dressed up, such as in a suit and tie. My appearance blends better with such clothes, like ketchup and fries blend together well.

A hat doesn't look good on me at all.

You guys who say I should wear a bigger pull over or shirt are crazy. I'm trying to look thinner, not wider. The shirts I bought today fit my look and physique very well. Sure I have a little belly, but the clothes go well overall with my appearance. They make me look far more professional than those t-shirts I bought from the Philippines did.

Something like this:

Because you have no neck, an uncharacteristic chin, and a round face.


That shirt looks nice. I'm sure I could get that anywhere. But doesn't it look better on taller thinner guys? Everything does actually.

What type of pants do you recommend? And jacket?

Try Gatsby hair wax it works for asian hair and is pretty popular throughout asia for this reason.
Repatriate, I'm not trying to look interesting. I'm just trying to look polished and presentable, like a professional on vacation.

I'm not saying that you should dress in a bright red shirt with flowers on it with a popped collar and a dagger necklace.
Can you give me an example of a dressier black shirt from google images?

Check out uniqlo. They are a Japanese outlet but they have clothes that fit pretty well for asians and the style looks classy and understated. They have a few stores in Taiwan. It also doesn't look overly preppy or gay. You don't have the body type for their jeans but their sweaters and down jackets are nice and look like they would fit the understated professional look you're going for.

What are fitted pants or non fitted pants exactly?

Tailored or find a seamstress who knows how to properly hem and adjust store bought jeans. Tailored dress pants or casual wear isn't as expensive as you think it is. It's worth every penny.

Btw, what do you all think of cargo pants, the ones with those utility pockets in the sides? I think those are very useful for traveling because the extra pockets in them are useful for storing gadgets and things. But do they make a guy look sloppy or less classy? What do you all think?

I'd avoid cargo pants because you'd look like a day laborer. Cargo pants are for teenagers, college kids, or geologists. Since you are none of the above I wouldn't recommend it.

Also never wear leather or mesh type pants. It's for tall skinny guys who can carry the wannabe rockstar or heroin chic look. It would look absolutely gay on you.

LOL. Yeah, I ought to put Repatriate on the Happier Abroad Team page and list his function as "Fashion Consultant", since he is very picky and has particular standards in fashion sense. It's a wonder he didn't work for a fashion magazine company in NYC. LOL

How do you know if my China adventures will be interesting enough to report on though? What if I go there, and everyone ignores me and treats me like I don't exist again, like in Taiwan? Then I'll be bitching and complaining again. LOL I sure hope not.

:lol: I don't proclaim to be an expert at this stuff. I'd like to think that I dress well based on what others have said about my fashion sense. Every other bit of advice was telling Winston he's fat and ugly.. we've already gone over that in countless threads.

I think Winston will actually do alright in China if he takes his time there. I think Chinese women will be receptive at least since many aren't as picky about looks and at least Winston can be out there enough to be interesting. We'll see though. Please keep a comprehensive journal of your exploits there Winston. Don't gyp us on this. :lol:

No one has to be an expert to have good fashion sense. If you read fashion magazines, you will automatically know what's hip.

That being said, however, I honestly don't think that most women are going to be nitpicky about what I wear. This is not high school. As long as I look decent and presentable, they will be gauging other things - such as my personality, behavior, vibe, compatibility, how they feel around me, our common values, etc.

The people who told me that mainland Chinese women liked overseas Chinese appear to be right. These women are more old fashioned and know that a Chinese partner will be more accepted by their families than a Western white partner. So an overseas Chinese guy would fit into their life more "harmoniously", whereas if they try to date interracially, then they will be out on a limb.

Of course, some Chinese women prefer white guys, so white guys have no problem there too, but many mainstream Chinese women with a traditional mentality are going to be thinking this way. But a more modernized westernized country like Taiwan or Hong Kong is going to be more open toward interracial dating probably.

What I don't understand is: How can there be something "wrong" with the way I dress, when everywhere I look, other guys are dressing the same way - decent shirt and jeans/slacks. It's very normal. I don't see any difference between my clothes and that of other guys all around me and on TV too. So how can there be something wrong with how I dress? This does not compute in my logic circuits. Am I missing something?

My strategy. Goto Nordstroms (some place with outstanding customer service and knowledgable staff). Find the hottest sales girl (never listen to some guy). Explain your mission: I'm trying to land a job at Apple, or I'm touring the world and want to look like an interesting entrepreneur type guy women would dig!

These girls love this, it is their expertise, their entire life is style, and they know as women what they would find classy on a guy. They will analyze your eye color, hair, build, complexion, etc. they are like a fashion computer!! Then they leap into action and pick out an entire custom set of stuff (pants, shirt, hat, glasses, shoes, jacket) that not only goes together but goes with you.

There will be a few misses as they learn your style. Round 1 in the dressing room is just the warm up round. No guy can ever do the magic these chicks can do. It has got me past tough interviews over the years and was key in my success in Shanghai. Try it!

Also, the black jacket it pretty cool. Sophisticated, yet still casual. Maybe you should gel your hair a little, and get some wrap-around "terminator" style sun glasses to complete the ensemble.


I agree with this. The collar on the jacket looks cool.

I notice this is an old thread but those clothes don't suite you well. They're very nice though.

Choose items which skim over areas you want to disguise. For instance, if you want to look slimmer, move away from skin tight vests, avoid all t-shirs in general, Stick with long sleeves; they'll make your body look more proportional and "together." All tops should have a waistline, it they don't then thy will look ballooned & make u look bigger.

Use caution when buying pants. Choose pants with a smooth front: no pleats! Pleated pants poof out below the waistband, drawing attention to your stomach. Also, when buying pants, pay attention to the rise. Too high a rise can create the illusion of a tummy even if you have a 6-pack. Wear your pants at belly button level. If you wear them under your belly, you'll just draw attention to your gut.
- It's easy to give, when you know what it's like to have nothing. -

- Develop a backbone, not a wishbone. -

Winston, based on your pictures, I'm afraid that this topic belongs in the "Humor/Comic Relief" forums!
