In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro is welcoming you to the 7th installment of the alpha m. Store Style Breakdown. He’s buying an entire outfit from EXPRESS then rating it between 1 (worst) and 10 (best) on affordability, quality, variety, and age-range. The total of the scores will give the Alpha M. Store Style Rating.
Alpha is so excited to hit EXPRESS which used to be one of his favorite stores. He hasn’t shopped there in about 6 years when they featured a griffin logo that he wasn’t so wild about. He’s happy not to see it as he shops. As a pro tip, he advises to note the mannequins for style and outfit ideas. He also notes that EXPRESS has XS sizes for the more tailored look and smaller guys. They’ve upgraded the pant pockets as they don’t have a lot of crap & designs on the pockets like before.
EXPRESS has toned down the branding, which the result was ‘spectacular’. It’s an incredible and viable option now that they’ve eliminated the tacky and cheesy aspects. They’ve stepped up their game. His purchases include black polo ($23.94), extra slim fit jeans ($58.50), camo jacket ($64.80), baseball tee ($23.94), and light gray pants ($52.80) for a total of $244.23.
You’ll love these two outfits: casual and dressier (Bad Boy James Bond). The camo fits well with accompanying denim skinny jeans being super comfortable. The price was very good. The baseball tee is crazy comfortable and cool. The outfit is playful and cool. The next outfit is bad boy perfection. The slim fit pants are dynamite with a flawless fit. The polo is sexy and feels super soft. He gives the following ratings: affordability 5, quality 7, variety 9, age-range 9.
The store style rating 7.5
Anson Belt & Buckle
Alpha thinks Anson Belt and Buckle’s belts are the best belts in the history of belts! Anson’s belts are simple – without holes. They use a cool track system so your belt doesn’t have dings and holes. Your belt is cleaner and professional as a result. The buckles are interchangeable too. For example, you can easily change out the buckles to match your watch metals. The beautiful thing about the belts are they are a one-size-fits-all. Cut, add the buckle, and you’re in business! The BOX SET is the best value and allows you to mix-and-match.
