Hm, it seems the images are down indeed. As a "new member" I cannot put links in posts so had to attach those straight to the OP. I can only assume that forum only stores images for a limited time.
I'll look into it later, maybe I'll figure how to make them visible again.
Good point! There's a study that showed how our image affects our own cognitive abilities (f.e. people who wore doctors coat demonstrated increase in precision, attention, etc.).
But here's the kicker - it's not the coat (duh!) but what we associate with that image. In other words, we tend to assume the qualities that are attached with a particular image.
In your case, if you were absolutely sure that you looked hot in that trench coat, I'm sure it affected how you wore it, your body language, etc.
But there's another side to this too,
If you tried working on posture/body language you'll recognize that at first it's quite uncomfortable, maybe even awkward, but after you go through this pain phase the rewards are definitely worth short-term pain.
Same with clothes, I know a lot of guys are actually uncomfortable with wearing tight, revealing, bright pieces but in many cases if they actually took the time and effort to give such outfits a honest try, they would look waaaay sexier in the long term.
Anyway, talking about that particular Blazer style, the Scarf is a great piece, but it could be replaced with other accessories, maybe a vest - something so that the whole outfit wouldn't look bland.
The whole idea behind my "style inspiration" series is to give some viable options for different tastes F.e. this week I'll be putting a look that looks pretty darn badass as opposed to the nice-ish blazer style.
You know you have nailed your style when girls compliment you ,and your close friends call you gay.
