In a constant growing society most especially in Nigeria, we largely accept the generalisation that everything about women is money. True as it seems, a neck deep regurgitation of it exposes us to the risk of neglecting doing much on cheaply building our personality to attract and keep our choice women.
I once dated a government worker whose salary doubled mine. She was utterly amazed the day my salary alert came in on my phone while she was playing car race game.
She couldn’t reconcile how packaged I was with what I earned. Though, I hustled to argument but that was a whole different issue for another day.
Kings, being a man is not by sagging trousers or rocking expensive stuffs, It is pretty much of brain work and how coordinated you are. In today’s government, you need to find ways to look good without breaking the bank.
You need to be personally and financially organised to be able to attract and keep your choice woman.
When I resided in Lagos, I would go to Orile for ok (okirika/fairly used) shirts…. Thomas Pink, Giant, Hugo Boss, Marks & Spencer, TM Lewin…. name it. I would check the collars and cuffs to confirm grade. There is also a place in Yaba market for correct well sewn-to-fit “ok” plain trousers.
I would go to Balogun, Lagos Island and source suit cheaply from importers. The suit I helped a friend source at N15,000 awarded him some respect at Lagos law school.
The ankle length black suede, well crested Pierre Cardin rocked my uncle’s university days in UNILAG which bought for N4,000. Quality grade fairly used/ok at Westminster Lagos.
There is a centre rug he bought for N3, 500 in Ladipo ware house. When he priced it in Onitsha, it goes for N20,000.
Today, the cologne I use, sourced at N3, 000 is superb. It is not of a popular label, but of great quality and imported along side other big designers labels.
I got my Brown Brogues baker and Black Suede shoes in Akure, Ondo state… It’s quality grade 1.
Kings, do you hustle and forget to shave your armpit and pubic hair and smell awful?
A doctor, friend of mine, has the worst mouth odour issue I have ever observed. Carelessness? He doesn’t have time to brush regularly and use mouth wash to fight halitosis.
The sight of the boxers of another friend of mine will make a woman withdraw an already given consent. It is all that bad. He would wear a green T-shirt till it fades. His shoes can induce convulsion on a toddler. He obviously earns well, but he is not coordinated.
I can take care of fabrics. Store your clean clothes inside a box not wardrobes. It helps to retain the colour. Wash deep coloured clothes with mild soap towards the evening to avoid hot sun.
Kings, study your environment, discover where you can get things you need at good rates, Kriss kross that big market, source household consumables in bulk and save some for airtime to call you ideal lady.
Kings, package well and clean at cheap rate, it is not always all about money.
