Here's a simple peace (get it?) of advice for average guys who realize the need to kick up their everyday style several notches. Keep your voice down, and reduce the amount of noise you produce with music, digital effluvia, and the like. Don't be the loudest, most obtrusive presence in a room or on the street. Surely, you don't want others to turn around and gawk at you because you are creating such an annoying spectacle? No. I didn't think so. Yes. Calm and quiet are infinitely preferable. And when you finally open your mouth to speak, moderate your voice. It's but one of the many ways you can demonstrate some grooming and sophistication.
