This video goes out to all the skinny dudes in the Alpha M. House! Alpha doesn’t think you look bad being skinny. But in this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro says there are some things skinny guys can do in regard to your style and grooming to look more studly and aesthetic.
Style + Grooming Tips for Thin Men
If you are thin, wear clothes that fit your body (not too big).
Black makes you look slimmer — light colors will make you look a big larger.
Polos are perfect — the collar makes the neck look a bit larger, the ‘V’ draws the eye down making your shoulders look broader, and the arm band makes your guns look bigger.
Don’t wear accessories (watches (36-40), glasses) that overwhelm your proportions.
Facial hair is tricky — facial hair makes your proportions look smaller.
Choose the appropriate hairstyle — no big styles and no super tight sides.
If you’re small, don’t wear an unstructured bomber. Wear a structured motorcycle jacket with more substance, shoulder detail, and ‘V’ lapel. Pea-coat and topcoats are also amazing choices: masculine structured shoulder and double breasted closure that broad & sexy.
Sleeve length is important too — pop those sleeves up and show those triceps (even if it’s not huge).
Pants need to be slim fit and not super long (no bunching and gathering around the ankle). Also look for chinos with flaps on the rear pockets.
BE CONFIDENT — don’t be insecure.
Make Your Proportions Look LARGER

Coach Kramer changed his life, and if it wasn’t for him, Alpha doesn’t know where he’d be. Coach Kramer came in at a time and a point in Alpha’s life when he needed it the most. Alpha says that he can never repay him, but his story isn’t unique. It’s not special as there are thousands of other individuals who had the same interactions with Coach Kramer.
Recently Alpha reconnected with Coach Kramer and asked him to come down to Atlanta to speak at the MENfluential Conference 2019. Alpha wanted him to see the collateral beauty that has resulted from his love compassion and kindness that he showed one scared lost fifteen year old boy a long time ago. Today Alpha would like to share Coach Kramer’s message with you in order to be inspired uplifted — and hopefully encouraged.

Christian uses Pete & Pedro SALT (for texture) + Pomade (medium hold, high shine), but if you need even more hold, check out Pete & Pedro Power. Also, Christian uses Pete & Pedro Clean for shampooing, but if you are suffering from dandruff like Alpha, use the new rockstar Pete & Pedro CONTROL. This product is ridiculous! T-GEL Extra Strength is a solid product with 1% coal tar, but Pete & Pedro CONTROL takes dandruff control to the next level with 1.8% percent coal tar, menthol, tea tree oil, peppermint oil, and glycerine also are added.
The muffin top — wear shirt tail garter or a tailored shirt (not just fitted)

In the past, Alpha was taken advantage of and pushed around due to being viewed as ‘weak’ by step-fathers, girlfriends, friends, and coworkers. Being taken advantage of and pushed around can totally destroys your confidence and self-esteem. Alpha knows because he was there until he identified why he was viewed as weak and worked on them. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro is now letting you know too so you can fix them.
Why You’re Viewed as Weak + Fixes
You don’t stand up for yourself and are a people pleaser — learn to say no
You don’t have an opinion which makes you sound dumb & uneducated — have an opinion
Using filler words — eliminate filler words and pauses

If the topic of touching & kissing offends you, this video is not for you. If you’re not interested in being a sexually seductive savage, this video not for you. BUT if you like the idea of being the guy that all the women want and all the ladies love, then keep watching! In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro is going to help you be better when it comes to relations and and getting freaky. At the end of the day, if some sassy senorita calls you ‘papi’, you did it right.
Subliminal Steps to Stimulate the Senoritas
Forget every single porn movie (visual stimulation) — women are emotional and mental
Learn to build sexual anticipation — she will get worked up in her mind, but you need to slow down & use playful flirting
Set the mood — clean car & home (including bathroom), be a gentleman (for example, open the car door), put on super sexy slow jams
Learn how to touch — certain areas are more sexy than others (ear lobes, neck, collar bone, hip bone, back of knee, foot, face)
Learn how to kiss — kissing is one of the sexiest things you can learn to do. Go slow! Don’t jam your tongue down her throat. When using tongue, stop & pull away and play. She’ll want more.
Be assertive without being a creeper — if things are going well, don’t question it and keep going with the flow. Let her know how amazing she is.
Being successful — ambition is super attractive
Set the Mood to Get It On

Tiege Hanley Indochino Thursday Boot Bodybuilding.com
Over 5,000 audition videos were submitted, and 5 lucky guys were selected. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro presents Felipe. He lives in Atlanta but was from Chile. He’s getting a Masters in Mathematics on scholarship and is also a hip hop dancer. He’s going on to get a PhD as well. He’s ready to upgrade his style because he’s going to be a professional soon, but finances are tight. To be taken seriously, he knows he has to dress properly but all the money he makes goes to rent, utilities, and dance classes.
What He Brought
His jacket looks warm but has seen better days. The sweater is a little big on Felipe — he needs clothing that fits as a smaller guy. The pants are a little long, and his shoes are definitely a problem being worn-out. His hip hop outfit is worn when he’s rehearsing (not performing). The shoes, even though comfortable, are as bad as they get in terms of style. The pants are not too bad, and the tee shirt makes him look shorter as long as it is. Last, his faux leather jacket has seen better days. The dress shirt is boring, the pants are a little short, and the shoes are rough.
Stephen at Dyer and Posta Salon in Kennesaw, GA is shaping up the sides of his hair, bringing the beard down, and shaping up his eyebrows. When it sick moves, Tiege Hanley has them. Check out Tiege Hanley to take out all the guesswork out of looking incredible — three levels and acne systems that include the essentials (Wash, AM & PM moisturizers, + Scrub) to keep you handsome now and into the future. Take the quiz to get your personalized recommendation.
Indochino is where Felipe is getting a custom suit, and he is not afraid to experiment with color. He then labors over every single decision like lapels and buttons. In two weeks, Felipe receives his custom suit, shirts, and everything else. Indochino also has made-to-measure shirts, ties, chinos, and beautiful overcoats in 39 different showrooms. Experience the process — Alpha’s suit is perfection and the best fitting suit he has. The quality is ridiculous!
For casual clothing, Alpha and Felipe start hunting for double monk strap. Alpha consults to spend money on good shoes — you get what you pay for. This goes for suits and jackets as well. You can get everything else on the cheap. They head to the GAP next where Felipe is not afraid of color and patterns. Bloomingdale’s is their last stop before heading back to the office.
Back at the Office
Every great outfit starts at the feet! Thursday Boots are badass — quality insane with amazing styling. They have taken footwear to the next level by also doing dress shoes. They have all the hallmarks of Thursday Boots including glove leather insole and stitching. Check out their new collections. So, Felipe has the Thursday Boots as well as the Johnson & Murphy single monks and Kenneth Cole cap toe.
He also got American Eagle denim jeans, slim fit chinos, Express slacks, Express shirts, tees, sweaters, jackets — and BodyBuilding.com hoodies. Speaking of BodyBuilding.com, Felipe works out and will be enjoying Alpha’s top 10 supplements + whey protien + Quadracarn + Tailored: Six Weeks to Living Lean and more from BodyBuilding.com. Alpha also gave Felipe some of his jackets since they are the same size.
Look #1 — American Eagle slim fit denim jacket + Zara lightweight sweater + belt + Thursday Boots
Look #2 — Express shirt + pants, Allen Edmonds shoes + Peter Manning jacket
Look #3 — Zara camo biker jacket + green tee + slim fit mildly distressed jeans + Thursday Boots Chelsea + red / brown belt
Felipe said that it’s hard to put into words what the experience means. It meant a lot to him — not because of the shopping but because of the experience, knowledge, and time with Alpha. He’s grateful and says thank you to everyone.
