I am happy to report that Stealth Styling was featured in Sharp-The top Canadian men’s magazine for our Style cam service. Here is a small exerpt from the article:
The widower had a problem. After his wife had died, he was looking to get back into the dating game. The only problem was that he hadn’t done it in a while, and he wasn’t sure what to wear, or how to act.
So he contacted Lisa Ann Martin. She saw the man’s problems – he had lost a tremendous amount of weight, nearly 100 pounds. She told him to slim down his clothes, and also offered him some dating advice. And after taking her advice, he’s not alone anymore – all because of her help, and webcam.
Martin, of stealthstyling.com, has been style consulting for years, usually with snowbirds coming to her hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona. At the same time, she was starting to use Skype, the free Internet phone service. So, in a flash of inspiration, she combined the two to become a new kind of style consultant. Where once she was mostly restricted to her hometown, her services are available to men seeking help all over the world.

While the retail industry in general has seen a decline in sales over the past year, one particular format, online sample sale sites are doing relatively well in this recessionary climate, as shopaholic women and men with a taste for designer items are drawn to this online guilty pleasure.
The deep discounts on designer fashions and accessories, the aura of exclusivity and the convenience of online shopping appeals to both men and women, who are signing up by the millions to join these cool websites. They have become the “club” to which every person wants to belong.
The bargains are hidden from the public eye; only members can view them — although becoming a member is usually not difficult. It varies from invitation only sites to ones which accept anyone who registers. The sales are up for short periods of time and qualities are limited. Returns and exchanges tend to be restricted. Discounts can run as high as 80 percent off.
With all of these “exclusive” online sales, now it’s even easier to recession proof your men’s wardrobe without having to skimp on style. Most sample sales sites offer women’s designer clothes and accessories, however there are now a few top sites which have gotten into the men’s market.
Here are my top eight websites for men where membership definitely has its privileges:
Four other websites, which are smaller and contain limited and/or offer unique selections, are Beyond The Rack , The Top Secret, Jackthreads – “invite only”site for street/skate community, and for guys in NY area – TheChoosybeggar.
Merchandise moves quickly on these websites, so if something catches your eye, make sure to snap it up before it’s gone!

Maintenance if not a very sexy topic, but restocking your wardrobe frequently is expensive and avoidable if you actually take the time to care for your pieces correctly. It’s no secret that the economy is still hurting, and it is taking a toll on all of our clothing budgets. What it shouldn’t take a toll on is how you “care” for your garments. Be smart and save your extra funds to add new sharp looking seasonal pieces to your wardrobe instead!
So here are a few basic clothing care tips:
Well-dressed, intelligent men know that a good deal on clothing doesn’t end at the store. If you really want to get the most bang for your buck, ensure your pieces last a long time by properly caring for them with some of my Stealth Styling tips.

Every man should know how to conduct himself in any setting, whether it be social, work, or at home. Being a gentleman today is not about dos and don’ts, but about common sense, courtesy and respect of others. Knowing the basics of good manners will take you far.
Work Place – be professional.
Being well-mannered in a work setting means being approachable, open to constructive criticism, speaking expressively with tact, and particularly be positive and encouraging to others. Some fundamental good manners will go a long way in helping you during your rise to the top.
Chivalry – be a man.
Chivalry is free and it gets the girl. A woman still appreciates a man who takes the time to hold a door open for them. Remember to be presentable and well-groomed when taking a woman on a date. Knowing what to wear and when to wear it is important if you want to save your reputation.
Whenever dining out, be sure to allow your female companion to be seated first. For those of you who dare to be really chivalrous — it is common practice to stand when a woman gets up to leave the table.
In conversation, simply be yourself and be involved – ask about your date and follow up on their responses. Women detest men who brag or have huge egos and will quickly become bored when it becomes clear you are not particularly interested in them, or if you are interested, it is just not in their “personality”.
Respect – be considerate.
Etiquette and mannerisms are simply learned behaviors and you will have the greatest successes in life by thinking positively and being proactive – rather than thinking negatively and being reactive. A chivalrous gentleman should always think about how his tone and his attitude might be taken, and whether or not it reflects his intentions. By implementing a courteous, respectful attitude and speaking thoughtfully – you will achieve a greater degree of respect from your family, friends, co-workers, partners as well as lovers.
So if you following these basic guidelines, rest assured people will perceive you as a man of good breeding, class and taste, and one they wish to socialize and conduct business with today. Not to mention the fact that the women are always elated to meet a “real” gentleman.]]>
Men today are starting to realize the importance of proper grooming. A healthy appearance reveals to others, whether you are attending an important business meeting, a special event or a first date, that you are “the man”, and have it all together. Believe me when I say women notice and will reward you for your efforts.
Generally men have a very basic everyday regime of brushing your teeth, showering, and washing your face. However, there are few other essential grooming guidelines every man should follow:
Essential man’s wardrobe…
When it comes to building a functional wardrobe, the first thing every man should do is assess their lifestyle. No matter what the particular situation, whether it is casual or professional, there are pieces every man should have in his wardrobe in order to look sharp and well dressed. With these basic elements in place, most men can be ready to respond to whatever situation presents itself and feel totally prepared.
Many clients ask me what they need and usually the answer is they don’t need anything, however they generally do not have the correct clothing items for their lifestyle needs; most having a cluttered closet full of ill-fitting, possibly outdated duds and stacks of shoes which are not fit to wear. So the key is creating a portfolio of appropriate, quality items which fit their way of life.
I believe there are ten closet essentials which are the backbone of a stylish man’s wardrobe. They can be worn almost year round and don’t follow any particular fashion trends. Most likely you already have most if not all these wardrobe basics, but regardless of your age, income, profession or personal style, your closet should always contain these classic pieces:
In regards to the essentials, always purchase the highest quality possible. Quality pieces will have the best fit and believe it or not, value. Think of your wardrobe as an important investment that you cannot afford to pass on. It’s always better to be the best-dressed man in the room. The essential wardrobe, worn proudly, establishes the fact that you are a man of style, purpose, and power.
Life is demanding for men these days – having extremely busy schedules, juggling work, relationships, and a social life all in a day which is never long enough. It definitely helps having an image consultant, saving you valuable time, who would take you step by step through a process of discovering your personal style and dressing you according to it. However, not everyone is emotionally or financially ready for this kind of experience; therefore my last piece of advice is to start simple and expand according to your lifestyle and body type.
