    Even small compliments are memorable, particularly if they're from attractive women. I've gotten "nice shoes" about nice but not expensive brown dress shoes (Cole Haan I think), and "I wish my husband wore shoes like that" about a sleek pair of blue loafers.

    Also various comments on my "scarf game" recently on Zoom calls. A few years ago I got "You smell good" and then "JT10000 always smells good" from two women half my age. "Seesucker - nice" (actually it was cordlane, but I'll take it).

    Yeah - in a lot of situations it's not hard for a guy to rise way above average. I'm in a slightly dressier field than health care, but still it's not hard - nice shoes, clothes that fit, a blazer. I've been doing scarves recently and women really seem to dig it.
    I'll take the compliments from any gender. I'm a sucker for flattery


      I keep getting complimented on my hat, a rather worn-in, but perhaps stylishly shaped, linen flat cap. I don't know it that means the hat looks really good or the rest of my outfit is really bad, but I guess I'll take it. I don't think flat caps are necessarily a Dappered thing, but I like to think its a good upgrade from a baseball cap, akin to wearing nice shoes instead of sneakers.
