Welcome to Real Men Real Style – Antonio ExplainsWhy This Men's Style Channel Is Worth Watching Hi, I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of RealMen Real Style, welcome to my YouTube Channel.

Now you’re probably asking yourself, whatam I going to get out of this? What’s in it for me? Why should I watch all of thesevideos that Antonio’s put out? Well, here me for just a second but I wantyou to, perhaps close your eyes, and think of the most successful person you’ve evermet in your life.

Think about this gentlemen or this woman and – were they a banker, were they a lawyer, were they a master electrician, were they a teacher, were they a professor, and think about this person.

Think about the times you interacted with them.

And let me bring you back now, open your eyes.

Now were they dressed like a slob? Is this the kind of person who you would see and theywill disheveled and their stuff was never in order? No, this person was squared awayand whether or not they were a plumber, whether or not they were a politician, this personwas – they cared about how they presented themselves.

This is what Real Men Real Style is about.

Real Men Real Style is about helping you understand that the way we present ourselves to the worldis nothing more than a vehicle to help us be successful and for others to take us seriouslyand to take us as credible human beings.

I'm going to talk about a lot of things in myvideos but it’s all going to come down to understanding that really what matters ina man’s life is that he – on the inside, that his inner core, that that is good thatthat is strong and style – this clothing we put on is nothing more than kind of likepolish on a diamond.

It allows the diamond to shine.

And that what style is about.

So you’re probably also asking, who’sthis guy talking? And where am I coming from that I can talk about this? well, first ofall, I'm the father, I’ve got three wonderful kids, I'm a husband, got a beautiful wifeI’ve been with for ten years, I'm a Marines so I spent a number of years, five years inthe United States Marine Corps and had a great time — served with some of the best men andwomen I’ve ever met.

I'm also a business owner, so I own a custom clothing which explainswhy I usually wear a sports jacket in almost all my videos.

But I'm also somebody who cares about thisindustry and I want to see more men dressing sharp.

And probably to hammer on this evenmore, I'm a regular guy, I don’t – I live in rural Wisconsin, I don’t live in a bigcity, I'm not some fashion model.

And I come from pretty humble beginnings I think, I grewup in a trailer park in West Texas and I just want to point out guys that I'm just likeyou.

And if I can make the transition to where I'm caring a lot more about my personal appearancethen I know that you can do it.

And I don’t care if you’ve got $10 inyour pocket or you’ve got $10, 000 in your pocket.

Whether you’re from India, whetheryou’re from Indiana, style is something that you can use to help show the world whoyou are on the inside.

So that you could use it to become the man you know, you know youcan be.

So this is what this channel is about and I hope you find my videos interestingand I look forward to you watching them and leaving comments and I’ll see you in myfirst video.

Bye-bye.

My name is Speaker 2.

I served in Vietnamin the Marine Corps with a unit called Scout Sniper Platoon 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Division1st Regiment.

Headquarters Company Scout Sniper Platoon is the official name of the unit.

In 1969 and '70.

I arrived in June of 1969in Vietnam.

I went into the Marine Corps in December of '68 and served a year in Vietnam, and I had a two-year enlistment and I was released from active duty after my tour, andwent straight home after Vietnam, after six days after leaving Vietnam.

Can you talk about your decision to enlist?What were you thinking? What was your life like before you went? I I was a college student.

I was in my fourthyear pharmacy school here at the University of Texas.

I have a twin brother.

He was inVietnam at the time that I enlisted.

He was serving in the Marine Corps as a grunt.

LikeI said, I was against the war but was raised in a family of veterans and there were there'sfive boys in the family and we're all veterans.

So we, my twin and I, were the last of theof the of the bunch.

And so I knew that eventually I would go intothe military, but I didn't believe in the war.

So, yeah, I was a protester and was involvedin all the antiwar activity to inverse them.

And then at some point, I knew that I wouldbe going to war.

I just didn't know when, but I also knew that I would know when wasthe right time.

And after my fourth year of pharmacy school, I decided that my gradeswere still holding up, but I wasn't really I needed two years.

And the Tet Offensive that just killed a lotof people in Vietnam and so I was feeling guilty for protesting a war that I've neverbeen to.

So I thought well, this might be the time.

Plus I needed the bucks.

I figuredI could finish my school.

There was two years left to get that degree and I could finishmy schooling on the GI Bill.

I'm going to take a break here to readjustthe microphone.

Do you need are you are you do any of my background before I went to college?I mean, back.

Okay.

I was raised in southeast Texas in theBeaumont-Port Arthur area down where Louisiana, Texas and the Gulf Coast come together.

Andit's a pretty physical area and construction blue collar workers.

And I worked in refineriesin the summer and played football and ran track and did all the things that kids dodown on the bayou and hunting and fishing.

So, it's interesting that I was able to endup in the rice fields that I grew up with except that they were shooting at me Vietnam, because there was a rice field down there where I was grew up.

But I went to Lamar Techfor two years after I graduated my high school in 1964, and two years after that, I was Iwas at UT studying pharmacy.

No because we hunted.

We hunted the rice fields.

There was a marshland down there on the Gulf Coast in the nitrous river and there's a lotof marshes, swamps.

You know, we hunted rabbits and ducks and geese and fish and frog andcrawfish and crab and all the things that you do as a kid in the bayous.

Oh, well, now when I look back at it, youknow, I see all the pollution that I played in and that I fished in and that I ate anddrank, you know, and probably none of it holds the candle.

I mean, Agent Orange product doesn'thold a candle in any of that stuff.

There's so much pollution down there.

It wasn't cleanedup in those days.

I mean, you would literally have froth on the water in some places, whichis the reason that I ended up leaving that area anyway to go come up here to Austin.

I found out there was clean water here.

I've never seen that before.

But, I mean, I loveit where I'm from because I'm Canadian-French and you know, and we lived off on the land.

We ate the food and my momma was a good cook.

So but that's actually where I got hunting.

That's where I learned to hunt because we had to put food on the table.
