Check Out “Less Effort” for Some Real Life Pictures of How NOT to Dress

You know how some magazines offer pictures of sartorially inclined gentlemen to show you how you're supposed to dress? This is kind of like that...

Have you ever taken public transportation on your way to work, when out of nowhere comes a bro in his light wash bootcut jeans and Affliction tee, and you wonder what the hell he was thinking as he got ready this morning?

How about the man you spot on his lunch break, walking briskly in his “business attire” which consists of a suit two sizes too big?

Do you use these rule breakers as a reminder of how to NEVER dress, no matter what circumstances you may find yourself in?

Well, we do.

In fact, fellow Primer contributor and gent #1 at Effortless Gent has taken several pictures over the last year or two and had nowhere to put them… and so he created Less Effort. The premise is simple: spot a gent who needs to learn a thing or two about dressing like a well put-together man, snap a covert photo, and submit it to Less Effort.

Don't mistake Less Effort as an excuse to poke fun at people. Think of it as a forum to learn through visual examples. Over at The Effortless Gent, Barron does his best to educate guys on how to dress well even on a limited budget. The people that grace the pages of Less Effort have a choice, as we all do, in what to wear and how to present themselves. They didn't make the best choices, and through Less Effort, we can show others what exactly went wrong… and best of all, how to avoid making the same mistakes.

Head on over to Less Effort and take a look around. If you're feeling brave (and you should be!) snap a photo and submit it to the site. Lastly, if you have any questions, feel free to ask away right here.
