  • Bitcoin Might be Down but These Shirts are Still Hot!

    You know something is more than just a niche trend when people start wanting to wear it on their shirts as a fashion statement. I guess you could say this is geek chic but I totally love what the guys over at CryptoRack$ are doing.

  • Style Tips For Men Who Love Long Sleeve Tee Shirts

    Today, we're going to take a look at long sleeve tee shirts as a fashion piece. Honestly, for most of my life, I've simply thrown a shirt on and hoped it looked good. Apparently there's more to it than that though and so I appreciate these tips that the folks at Sinners Attire sent over.

  • Transitions XTRActive Lenses Review

    This summer, the folks at Transitions invited me to get a pair of their glasses and test them out. As someone who has been a long time Transitions Signature lenses wearer, I didn't really "need" new glasses but I was curious about the other photochromatic lens technologies that were offered beyond what I already enjoyed. In particular, while I LOVED the flexibility of Signature... it really didn't eliminate my need for true sunglasses and so I ended up still carrying them with me. Transitions XTRActive however, promised to be darker and work better while driving. To test them out and provide an honest review, I've been wearing them exclusively for the past two months. I'm hooked!

  • Dress Shirts vs Casual Shirts - How to Pick Correctly for Each Occasion

    The most basic thing that you need to know about when choosing the right attire for any occasion is knowing what kind of occasion it is. An occasion can either be formal, informal, or semi-formal. Each occasion has a particular "dress code" or clothing rule that people have to follow.  Formal and informal are understandable, but what event can be considered as semi-formal? Semi-formal is less dressy than a formal but dressier than an informal.

  • Jackson Wayne Weekender is Perfect for Weekend Getaways

    Just like a bespoke suit and a fine hat, every man deserves a great bag at some point in his life. I never really understood that before and instead subscribed to the "buy cheap since it will get scratched" philosophy. After taking a Jackson Wayne Weekender a quick two-night trip last week to a resort last week, I'm now convinced this is true. Even better is that it is made in America by skilled craftsman and an owner who isn't too busy to answer emails personally.

  • Don't Make These Easy to Fix Male Grooming Mistakes

    Whether you are at a social gathering or at an official event. Whether you are going on a holiday or attending a family function, it's important to be well-groomed.  A well-dressed and well-groomed man not only looks handsome, but also, his personality distinguishes him from the crowd. Luckily, there are some easy to fix mistakes that many men make. Let's start fixing them!

  • Wardrobe Tips for Traveling on Business and Looking Great

    When you’re working from home or on a small commercial property the lax, casual style of dress is seemingly okay. However, when you’re traveling for business locally or internationally, your appearance is everything. Even before another business professional shakes your hand, says hello, hears your opinion, or learns more about your brand, they see you. They are looking at your professional appearance to determine whether you’re someone they’re interested in getting to know better. If you’re not dressed for the part, you could potentially lose a lot of business.

  • AhhSoles are Like Stepping On Grass, Even When You're Walking on Sidewalks

    Flipflops need to be fun as well as comfortable and all too often, men's fashion seems stuck in the "practical" category while women get all the fun. No longer though! AhhSoles sent me their new line of flipflops that are colorful, fun, and fun to say too...

  • Ridiculous Men's Fashion Trends We're Glad Are (Almost) Gone

    The one thing that can make any man cringe are the fashion trends that men have embraced in the past. While we no longer wear long robes and heavy wigs and comfortable clothes are the standard today, it's still important to dress well and look great. It's hard to quantify, but throughout all of these fashion trends the one thing remains true - a man who dresses well will also typically be seen as more confident and capable. These are important qualities for business as well as in your personal life. While trends come and go, your personal style will be what ultimate defines you.

  • Tips To Combat "Hat Hair" During Baseball Season

    Baseball is back next week! As opening day games commence across the country that means that millions of you will be wearing your favorite team hats and then going out afterwards to celebrate. While baseball caps are great for the game, the challenge most of us face is that it tends to compress your hair and it's pretty obvious that you just took your cap off before going out to the bars. Don't worry though, with the help of Old Spice's new Swagger Gel, we've got you covered!

  • 7 Steps to Look Good While Traveling for Business and Pleasure

    Long before a business trip gets underway, you have a lot of important decisions to make. At the office you’ll be preparing presentations and proposals, but at home you’ve also got to consider how you’ll present yourself. What you pack in your suitcase needs to work for the boardroom as well as socializing after work hours. Because let’s be honest, that’s when a lot of deals are made. 

  • We Love Our Gambino Alliance Shadow Blue Suede Derby Shoes

    I love it when brands send me a new pair of shoes and this is especially true when the samples are well made, good looking and comfortable. All that's true with the Blue Suede Derby shoes that Gambino Alliance sent me to test out. 

  • Three Fashion Trends to ‘Watch’ Out for

    It was Oscar Wilde who uttered the words: “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months” - and it seems the novelist was right; what’s trendy changes so often, it’s a wonder we all keep up with it!

  • Avi-8 Hawker Hurricane Watch - Inspired By the Royal Air Force

    I'm a junkie for history and things that have heritage - this goes especially true for historic aircraft. While today's pilots are incredible too, there was something special about those guys in the first half of the 20th century who strapped into flying machines and went wing to wing with their adversaries vs simply firing missiles from over the horizon. So, it's no mistake that Avi-8 would launch a line of watches inspired by these heroes to appeal to guys like me to forgo the tech-forward "smart watch" and instead go for something extremely masculine without being "hipster".

  • 7 Reasons to Wear Minimalist Watches

    Watches, like ties and socks are one of those rare opportunities for guys to show off their style without being flashy. Well, OK... watches can be flashy and ostentatious too, but generally this is a great opportunity for a guy to be subtle and make an impact only when it slides out of your sleeve and the metal and crystal glints in the sunlight for just a moment or two.

  • I'm Staying Cool with My Wallaroo Palmer Hat!

    I love hats but I never really appreciated them like I do during the summer in San Diego. Typically, I'm a baseball hat wearing guy, but recently I've decided to branch out and explore other styles as well. This is in part due to the simple fact that while a baseball cap might offer a nice brim to protect the front of your face, it doesn't provide much protection other than that and frankly it's not stylish outside of casual gatherings. That's why I was excited when Wallaroo Hats invited me to check out some of their product this summer and so I chose the Palmer due to it's ability to be folded and then pop right back up (very important for when you travel). Plus, it looks great and has a wide brim to protect from the sun.

  • 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.

  • Five Overlooked Essentials Guys Need for Date Night

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gillette at Sam’s Club. All opinions are 100% mine.

    The devil is in the details, really.

Each on their own are not a big deal, but miss every one and we might start picking up a hobo factor. Nail each of them, and you’ve achieved a gestalt that should not go unnoticed. Here are five overlooked essentials guys need for date night.
