  • Live Life Like It's Vegas: Tips For Men To Increase Confidence

    It's tough today for guys - we are told to still be bastions of masculinity, defenders of our families, and all those typically masculine roles we've always been responsible for. Unfortunately, but at almost every intersection we are also told we are to loud, too destructive, too fat, not caring enough etc. Today we are expected to be all the manly stuff, but without the testosterone fueled activities that go along with that. As a result, I feel like a lot of guys are lost but it doesn't have to be that way. Think about it this way. If you plan your life the way you would a trip to Vegas then that's really all you need to think about and the rest will just fall together.

  • Amazing Luxury Watches For the Traveling Man

    Selecting a watch was once as simple as saying "I want the black one". In fact, there's almost no area where innovation has been as core to the industry as watches and clocks. From the early days when accurate timekeeping was critical to navigating a sailing vessel to the new world to today when your watch isn't even really just a timepiece, this industry is amazing. For those of us who love to travel to extreme and exotic locations though, this means that no matter where you are going there is a watch that is perfect to take with you!

  • 10 Tips to Get the Perfect Custom Suit

    Every stylish man needs at least one sophisticated, unrivaled suit. While most businesses have instituted "casual workplace wear" these days, there is no debate that a well fitted suit will instantly make any man look better to women, as well as being more respected by other men. In fact, possibly even more important is that when you look good you feel good and that confidence boost will make EVERYTHING you do better and more effective. Whether you wear it to work or don it for a special occasion, you definitely want to have that one suit in your wardrobe which sets itself... and you, apart from the rest.

    A lot of men think buying a high-quality suit implies rushing to the nearest high-end store or bespoke tailor, and purchasing a suit which costs a ton of money. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. Getting a great and a well-fitted suit is easier and more personalized when you get it custom made.

  • Step out of Your Comfort Zone and Trying Something New - it's Fun!

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PF Flyers for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Part of the fun of fashion is making a statement and the other half is comfort (with a bit of simply feeling good because you look good!). While browsing the selection of shoes at PF Flyers I saw a ton of different options that looks great. There was a mixture of big bold designs as well as more classic looks.

    As I browsed their collection, I began to think, "maybe I should step outside my comfort zone and try something new." After all, I have a bunch of shoes already and I've always been pretty conservative with my fashion choices. In highschool I literally would buy 2-3 pairs of the same shoes so that when one wore out I wouldn't have to switch and find something new. Totally lame, I know! Today though - thanks to my wife, I am a bit better - I just go from one pair of brown or black shoes to the next. However, it's time to try something new so I decided to throw caution to the wind and check out these Center Hi Mono shoes in Red.

  • Samuel Hubbard - Getaway Shoes Review

    I love comfortable shoes - especially when they look as good as they feel. That's what I discovered when these shoes arrived a couple weeks ago from the Samuel Hubbard company. While the company has a long and complex heritage stretching back to 1930, and more recently the current CEO is also the co-founder of The Rockport Company - one of my favorite shoe brands years ago. Unfortunately for that brand, it seems to have gotten lost in a convoluted series of mergers and acquisitions over the years. When I slipped the Hubbards on for the first time though, it immediately brought back that same sense of comfort, quality, and style that I used to love in my Rockports years ago.

  • Wrangler Five Star Premium Denim Jeans Review

    I have become a big fan of jeans since I decided to become an at home parent for my daughter. Jeans have become a true staple of my wardrobe and a must wear daily item. I look for jeans that provide comfort as well as a sense of style. (Look, I live in New York City. Style is important.) But, comfort is really essential when you're trying to "save the world" every day with your "superhero" daughter. I was recently given the opportunity by Wrangler to try a few jeans from their Five Star Premium Denim line.
