A Classic Accessory
Having a classic piece of accessories is not limited to one piece of item in your drawer. A meaningful accessory can be anything that reminds you of a special person, like a watch from your girlfriend on Valentine’s Day or a pair of cufflinks that have been passed down for generations on your 21st birthday or graduation.
Such sentimental accessories give you the much-needed confidence booster when you need it most, from bad days to overwhelming achievements. The biggest confidence booster as a man is identity, and pieces that carry personal stories have your identity embedded in them, making it easier to step out of your shell and into the world.
A grown-up wallet
Nothing would spoil your confidence and outfit other than pulling out an outdated wallet after a successful business dinner, even if it was your first wallet. Maybe it means a lot to you; you know you should’ve changed that wallet years ago. Because you’re wearing an expensive outfit and looking sharp, your wallet doesn’t need to make a statement, but a quality leather wallet will do. Taking out a good quality wallet is such a huge confidence booster, and knowing that your cards won’t come out falling, but they are secure in a solid holder.
Proper Gym Attire

While getting your sweat on, knowing you have clean, proper workout gear makes you feel confident when that hot lady walks by smiling. So, replacing any old, torn, and smelly apparel is a start.
Clean, Comfortable Shoes
One of the main items to complete is a pair of shoes. Whether you like wearing boots, dress shoes, or sneakers, investing in good quality is important. A comfortable and clean pair of shoes boost your confidence significantly, without worrying about permanent stains or hurting your feet while simply walking.

A Snug-Fit Navy Suit
