" The CDMTM journey has been a transformative and exhilarating
experience. From the very first week to the final moments, every aspect of the program was designed to challenge and inspire me. The knowledge and wisdom that I gained from the expert mentors and their master sessions have been invaluable. Some of these sessions had a profound impact on my lifestyle choices and personal growth. With experts in social media, financial discipline, fashion, fitness, social work, and more, every session was unique and enlightening. The tasks that pushed me outside my comfort zone have helped me grow and evolve as a human being. CDMTM has become a defining experience in my life, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of it."

CDMTM is the acronym for Clothes Don’t Maketh The Man. The program started as a digital initiative during the first Covid-19 lockdown and was aimed at helping men get better in various aspects of their everyday life including health, fitness, relationships, money matters, communication, technology, social media, personal grooming, sustainable fashion and styling. 

We believe that the old saying ‘Clothes Maketh The Man’  still holds good, but that is only the visible component of the idea. There is a bigger and an invisible component to being a complete man. CDMTM aims to introduce & educate men about both the sides of this long held belief about beauty and style. While looking good and being presentable are essential, qualities like integrity, tolerance, gratitude, generosity, honesty, patience, etc,. are important for wholistic growth. 

You can register your interest for CDMTM 2024 here. Our team will get in touch with you as soon as the Applications  are open. Please follow @clothesdontmakeththeman on instagram for all updates.

Anyone 18 years of age can apply for the CDMTM Program. The approval of any application depends on various factors. The most important of these is the applicant’s alignment with the CDMTM Vision. 

Yes, most mentors speak in English and it is a must to be fluent in the language in order to make the best of this experience. We also have mentors from overseas and that makes it necessary to make English a mandatory medium of communication during the program. We do, however, have Tamil & Hindi-speaking team members and coaches in the team. And some of the sessions are held in mixed languages. 

Of course you can apply. Students, Professionals and Entrepreuners can all  benefit from this program. CDMTM is a wholistic learning and activation platform aimed at helping men discover their inner strengths and beauty. And learn the skills needed to be successful in life.  

The Application Fee is Rs. 1000 

There are no fees or charges to be paid once you get selected as a Finalist.
