How many times have you felt stuck in your stale-looking outfits and boring style and found yourself saying:
“I know how to dress for work, but I’d like to look nicer when I'm just hanging out in casual settings.”
“I hate going shopping. It's so overwhelming! There are too many choices, I’m not sure what to buy, and I usually just leave the store frustrated and empty-handed.”
“Nothing I own looks good or seems to fit right. I want to look good, but I’m not sure where to start. I just wish I had someone to tell me what to wear!”
If you've ever caught yourself saying or thinking anything even remotely similar to one of the above statements, you’re not alone.
I’ve been helping guys perfect their style for the last 9 years, and I’ve answered thousands of comments and emails. What you see above are the most common problems and concerns guys face.
On the other hand, those guys who always look sharp and put-together no matter the occasion? They all have one thing in common: They follow a framework.
So what does it feel like to always know what to wear?
To be confident in your outfit choices?
To be the guy everyone compliments as “well dressed”?
helping guys put together awesome outfits since 2009
Hey there! I'm Barron, and I run a site called Effortless Gent, and I’ve been helping guys put together awesome outfits and refining their style since 2009.
I’ve been into my own personal style since I was a kid! I remember being 12 years old and caring about the outfits I’d wear to school.
I wanted to look cool and hear my friends say, "Dude, that's a dope shirt!" (yeah, we seriously talked that way)
I admit, I wore some pretty terrible stuff back in the day… too trendy, too big, not classic at all. But that’s the whole point of experimenting!
My tastes and preferences have evolved over the past 20+ years, and early on in my twenties, I gained the appreciation of more classic styles.
Along the way, I’ve helped many of my guy friends put together their own smart, sharp wardrobes
Nowadays, I’m committed to helping guys buy clothes and put together outfits that make them look and feel great, and I’m glad I have 20+ years of experience to draw from so you don’t have to spend the same amount of time I did figuring things out!
Speaking of figuring things out...
💵 I wasted a bunch of money on clothes so you don't have to 👖👕👟
I've always been into clothing and personal style, and when I was younger, I tried any new trends I thought looked cool.
By the time I was 18, I had three large closets stuffed with clothing, yet I only wore maybe 15-20 of those things a majority of the time.
Looking back, I wince when I think of the thousands upon thousands of dollars wasted buying stuff I never wore.
On the other hand, I'm glad I went through that experience because I learned a few things.
Buying all those clothes and trying out different styles taught me what clothing works for me (my body type, my lifestyle, my surroundings) and what doesn't.
Because I have this firsthand experience (which I've slowly acquired over the past two decades!), I'm able to put together a great wardrobe filled with outfits that not only look sharp in everyday situations, but also make sense for my lifestyle.
Look, when it comes down to it, buying clothes and putting together sharp outfits as a guy is confusing.
So I created a framework that makes looking sharp (no matter where you're headed) easy and straight-forward.
"It's honestly been a game changer"
"I figured I would LOOK better, but I didn't realize that I would also FEEL better... I get treated differently by strangers, I find myself walking taller and with better posture, and just feel better about myself which carries over to every other part of my life. It's honestly been a game changer, and it didn't take too much work."
Think your situation is unique? It isn't
Maybe you’ve had a hard time nailing your own sharp casual style. You’ve spun your wheels, and you’re sick of wearing “whatever works” just because you haven’t figured out what looks great on you.
Maybe you’re in your 40s or 50s and want to know how you can dress sharp and current, but still appropriately for your age.
Maybe you have a "weird" body shape and you need to find shirts that fit your chest, back, and shoulders, that don’t also billow out like a tarp around your torso.
Maybe your wife, your partner, or your mom always bought clothes for you, and you never really had to shop for yourself... so you have no idea where to start, which stores are good (and which ones aren't), or what to buy first.
Maybe you want to learn how to mix, match, and coordinate so you can have fresh outfits every time and maximize the use of the clothes you have, without buying too many new things.
Or maybe you've never really cared about what you wore. You thought you looked fine, but slowly, you realized you're a grown man still dressing like he's in college. And you made it a goal to start dressing your age.
Every guy thinks his situation is unique, and therefore, buying the right clothes is difficult for him. After helping hundreds of guys, I can tell you this isn’t true at all.
But you also can't jump in without a plan if you want to get your wardrobe right the first time.
And while there is no recipe, no one-size-fits-all solution... you need to experiment, you need to try new things, and you need a bit of guidance.

"you might actually be able to pull it off"
"Barron is my go-to person to ask for wardrobe advice. He will make you consider the possibility that maybe something you feel isn’t your style, you might actually be able to pull off.
"I have always avoided fedoras because I thought they looked weird on me, but after talking to Barron I started to experiment with them, and now it has added a totally different element to my overall style."

"THAT WAS THE BIGGEST THING I LEARNED..."
"That was the biggest thing I learned: how to coordinate. You can have all the nice clothes in the world but if you can't put them together, it doesn't mean anything!
"As someone who looks young, dressing up also gets people to treat me like I am an adult, not a 21-year-old."
Imagine never second guessing what you’re wearing, ever again.
Picture an effortless start to your day, throwing on a killer outfit in minutes, with no doubts or second thoughts.
Imagine breezing through your morning routine with ease, and right before walking out the door, catching a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and thinking, “Damn, I look great."
Imagine being at a store and never having to question your purchases again… locating the exact pair of pants, shirt, or coat you want, easily finding your size, and buying it without trying multiple sizes on, because you just know it works...
Imagine understanding exactly what fits well and why, because you’ve gotten feedback from a trusted source (*ahem* me).
Picture having the clarity, know-how, and confidence to experiment with new looks and make style choices you never even thought of before.
Shopping doesn’t have to be difficult and stressful. Neither does dressing well every single day.
