Every man should have a suit in his closet. There will always be weddings, trials, funerals, job interviews, galas, and corporate events, and you need formal suits for men for these events. If you’re not into formalwear at all, you probably have nothing to wear. You have no choice but to head to the mall to buy one.

Buying formal suits for men can be a difficult and frustrating process. There are a number of things you need to consider when picking out the perfect suit. Whether you’re on a mission to find a suit for a formal occasion or you need help finding the best suit for a new job, we got your back.

Here are 4 things you need to know when buying formal suits for men.

Determine the type of suit you want to purchase

Suits are the best choice for formal events and occasions when you want to look your best. However, different occasions call for different attire. It makes sense to have a well-rounded selection of suits so that you have something to wear for any occasion. The problem is that suits are expensive. Some people are hesitant to invest in a few because they rarely get worn.

If you’re looking to buy only one, make sure to choose one that is classic and versatile. It is going to be the one you’ll be wearing to every formal occasion until you can afford to buy a new one. That said, it might be best to look for decently weighted wool. Get a four-season suit – one that won’t make you sweat in the summer and spring or leave you freezing in the fall or winter season. It should be able to take you through all seasons. If you need one that you can wear to the office on a daily basis, get a single-breasted, two-button jacket.

Choose a versatile suit color

Every man needs more than one good suit in his wardrobe – one that they wear to important business presentations, professional networking events, a friend’s wedding, charity gala or legal proceedings. If you own a suit, you probably know that a good suit doesn’t come cheap. Most men can only afford to buy one suit.

Most people assume that black is the best choice for formal suits for men. It’s not. Black suits are appropriate for occasions with black tie dress code. However, they are limited in their versatility. They don’t look flattering on men with a lighter complexion and light hair. Rather, these suits are suited for individuals with dark hair and complexion. Although it’s great to have a black suit in your wardrobe, it’s not the best choice for your first one.

Navy blue is an excellent choice for your first suit. The color is simple and straightforward. It will have you looking effortlessly stylish. Not only will you look good in a navy blue suit, you’ll also stand out in the crowd. You will be recognized, not for what you’re wearing, but for the effort you put into it. Plus, all stores that specialize in formal suits for men carry navy blue ones. Charcoal gray, medium gray and patterned suits are great options for a suit.

If you only have one suit, we suggest that you invest in more dress shirts and ties. Having a core selection of shirts and ties will increase your outfit options and make dressing up a little more fun.

Fitting is everything

Most men wear ill-fitting clothes, and it’s easy to see why. Today’s clothing is mass-produced and designed to fit as many men as possible. Suits and dress shirts are either too small or too big. Those who have bought suits off-the-rack can relate to this issue.

A well-fitted suit means the difference between a great look and a bad one. Not only is it flattering, it can also give you a boost in confidence. After all, a man looks his best when his clothes fit well. Aside from looking good, you’ll feel much more comfortable wearing a properly fitted suit. Come to think of it, suits that are too big will make you look like you borrowed it from your older brother. If it’s too small, you’ll pull and choke at every turn. We bet you can’t wait to take it off and slip on comfortable jeans and a t-shirt.

When buying a suit, make sure that the shoulder pads lie flat against your shoulders. A good suit should fall past the waist and drape over the top of your buttocks. The sleeves should fall at the base of your thumb. About half an inch of the dress shirt cuff should be visible. For the trousers, pay attention to the seat. It should fall smoothly over your rear. Knowing your measurements will help a lot in order for your suit to fit correctly.

Consider your budget

A suit is an essential piece of item every man should own. Whether you’re a big-earning professional who is willing to spend thousands of dollars or a student on a baked beans budget, you are sure to find a suit that will fit your budget and meet your needs.

When shopping for formal suits for men, you need to consider how much you are willing to spend. The more expensive the suit is, the better the fabric and quality are. But you don’t need to spend a huge sum of money to look suave. If you are on a tight budget, opt for natural fabrics like wool.  Tweed blazers are also a great choice for smart casual occasions.

It doesn’t matter if the suit is cheap, as long as it fits you perfectly, you’ll look stunning. But if you are willing to shell out just a bit more money, we recommend that you get a good quality suit. It’s an investment that will pay off huge later on.

Jeans are a mainstay in every man’s wardrobe. They are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing known to man. Men’s jeans are an ideal choice for those who don’t want to spend much time thinking about their outfit. They can wear one every day of the week without looking like he’s worn the same outfit twice.

Shopping for a pair of jeans used to be easy. They either fit or they didn’t. They are either black or blue. Today, however, there are so many different types of men’s jeans that some of you may be wondering which one to get. Rather than just focusing on the style, color or cut, you should also take the fit into consideration. After all, you wouldn’t want to waste your hard-earned money on ill-fitting jeans.

The right jeans will allow you to move around with ease and glide onto your body. If you’re struggling to find the perfect pair of jeans that fit and suit you well, then this blog post is for you. To ease your future shopping experience, we compiled a list of tips that will help you find the right pants for you.

Here are some tips for choosing the right` jeans for your body type.

Loose Fit

Loose fit jeans are the roomiest of all jeans, with a fuller leg. It provides plenty of space in the legs, thighs, and butt. This is great for men with an inverted triangle body shape as it adds some heft to the lower part of your body. The leg should be roomy, but not flapping in the wind.

Loose jeans with a wide leg offer a comfortable option, so your jeans don’t stretch across your groin. The key to wearing loose fit jeans is to get the right fit. Make sure that your pants hit near your waist, not your hips. Otherwise, you may end up looking like a 90s boy band. With that much extra material already on show, the last thing you want is to pair it with a baggy top. Not only will it make you look lousy, it may also make you appear bigger. This is especially true for men who are on the bigger side.

These type of jeans have a very casual fit, so it looks great when paired with a shirt. Make sure, though, that you choose a shirt with a  plain, solid color. If print is your thing, opt for those with minimal print. Large prints or patterns will bring the attention to your torso and throw your body out of proportions.

Relaxed (Classic Fit)

Relaxed men’s jeans have a loose fit from the waist to the leg opening. The classic fit jeans work well for almost every body type, but this is especially beneficial for men with a triangular body shape. These men are larger around the waist and hips in relation to the top part of their bodies. Often, they have a hard time finding clothes that make their body appear proportional. Straight-legged jeans are ideal for this body type because they do not hug any part of your body. Plus, it helps create balance and the illusion of shape. It will take away the attention from the larger waist.

The classic fit is also ideal for muscular men. They have a fairly large leg opening, which is beneficial for them since they usually have bigger legs. Plus, it makes it easier for them to move around.

Regular (Straight Leg)

Straight leg jeans maintain an equal width from the hips to the hem. It is ideal for stocky men with a muscular body. These are the men who frequent the squat rack at the jeans. Often, they have a hard time finding well-fitting pants because of the size of their hams, calves, and quads. In this case, you may want to turn to straight legs. They are not too tight and not too loose. They are roomy enough without looking baggy, yet fit enough to accentuate your toned body.

Contrary to what most people think, slim or skinny jeans are not recommended for muscular men as it will make them look heavier. Regular fit trousers, on the other hand, will accentuate your toned body without being body-hugging. It will emphasize the best aspects of your build. Remember, well-fitting doesn’t always mean tight-fitting.

Slim Fit Men’s Jeans

Slim fitting denim are a bit tight-fitting, but not as body-hugging as skinny jeans. For those who prefer slim fit jeans, opt for those that have a slight amount of elasticity to them.

This type of men’s jeans is also ideal for slender men – those with small shoulders, flat chest, and light build. Avoid wearing a tight-fitting shirt as it will only make you look thinner. Pair slim fit jeans with an oversized shirt instead to balance out your fit and ensure that your shape is not overly exaggerated.

Slim fit jeans are also ideal for the average American build – those who have defined muscles but are not overly athletic. These are the men who hit the gym occasionally but aren’t bulking up. Since their upper and lower body is fairly proportional, wearing pants that are bit tight won’t mess up their visual proportions.

Skinny Jeans

The skinny fit is the latest addition to the men’s jeans family. This is the tightest and snuggest of the jean style.

Generally, skinny jeans are divided into two categories: standard and spray-on. Since we have already discussed slim fit earlier, we’ll focus on spray-on skinny jeans. Spray-on styles have a very narrow ankle opening and are tapered close to the leg all the way down. Often, they contain a high proportion of stretch elastane, which gives them an element of comfort and ease when wearing them. Because skinny jeans tend to be figure-hugging, they are best reserved for men with well-maintained and well-proportioned bodies. They are great for showing off your figure, making them a great choice for athletic men.

Although people often say that you can’t go wrong with denim, there are a few common mistakes men make when styling skinny jeans. The biggest sin is wearing one that doesn’t fit you well. Never wear skinny jeans that are too tight around the waist as it can lead to a potential muffin top situation. It won’t create the kind of silhouette that’s most attractive for men.

Modern technology has made things a lot easier for us. Almost everything can be done with the assistance of gadgets and electric appliances. You can do things with just a push of a button and accomplish tasks in just a few minutes. Because of these conveniences, many of today’s modern men don’t know basic survival skills like starting a fire, finding clean water, and knowledge of edible and medicinal foods.

As a man, you are someone’s superhero. Your parents, your spouse, and children are counting on you. You are expected to protect them and provide for their needs. You may live a comfortable life now, but disaster strikes every once in a while. Hurricanes crash, fires ravage, cars run out of gas, planes crash, and the list goes on. Learning some survival skills will make sure you’re prepared in times of crisis.

Here are 6 outdoor survival skills every man should master. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Take some time and money learning these skills. You’re going to need them someday.

Navigating

Navigate using maps and compass

Before, people used a map to help them reach their desired destination. Today, however, most people rely on their smartphones. After all, these devices are equipped with GPS and other apps that will make it easier for them to go anywhere they want. But what if the batteries die and you find yourself in the middle of nowhere?

Signals get lost and batteries die. Knowing alternative methods of navigation will allow you to navigate, even some of the most extreme environments on earth.

Before GPS technology, men used a map and a compass to point them in the right direction. These things are considered as an explorer’s best friend. It is essential to learn how to use these devices, especially if you enjoy hiking. Be sure to pack your map and compass before you leave the house. These will come in handy if you find yourself lost in the wilderness. It is best to be prepared when the wilderness beckons.

Finding clean water

Even the best camper or hiker gets lost at some point. Although you are expected to bring clean drinking water with you on a long wilderness trip, some unexpected things may happen. You may accidentally spill your water or get lost in the woods.

If you happen to find yourself lost in the wilderness, one of the first things you should do is to find a source of drinking water. As you know, water is needed in order to survive. It helps regulate your body temperature, increases energy, and relieves fatigue. You can survive weeks even without food. Unless you’re in freezing conditions, you can survive without a shelter. But you won’t last a day without water.

Given the importance of water and staying hydrated, this is one of those survival skills every man should know about. This skill will help save your life.

Building a fire

Fire provides several benefits, especially when you’re outdoors. It helps you feel safe, secure, and comfortable. It provides warmth and heat, which will help you survive in extremely cold conditions. A fire also wards off insects, predators, and other wild creatures. Ultimately, it allows you to cook food.

Before you brave the wild outdoors, make sure you are equipped with some basic survival skills such as building a fire. In addition to building a fire, you also need to know how to tend to it so you do not accidentally start a fire. This is often critical and life-saving, especially when you’re in the wilderness.

Building a shelter

Even if you have enough water or a fire to keep you warm, you’re going to need a shelter at some point. This is especially important in winter. You can only survive 3 hours in extreme conditions. This should be your number one priority in winter. Remember, hypothermia is the number one outdoor killer in cold weather.

You need a shelter that will protect you from snow and rain, and insulate from the cold. To prevent the cold earth from sucking every ounce of heat from your body, the foundation should be 12 to 18 inches off the ground. Then, make a bed mattress. You can use dried corn shucks or fresh green pine boughs for this. This is incredibly comfortable. Once that’s done, it’s time to create a roof over your head.

First aid

Accidents can happen at any time, in any place. A misfortune may strike while you’re at home, at work, driving in your car or while playing sports. When something bad happens, especially to someone you know, you can’t be a helpless bystander.

First aid is one of the survival skills everyone should learn. If you are properly trained, you’ll know how to take care of fractures, how to stop a wound from bleeding, treat cuts, wounds, and bruises, and do chest compressions. You should be able to provide quick medical treatment until professional assistance arrives. You’ll know what to do in any emergency situations.

Time is of the essence during an accident. Taking action during the first few minutes can give them the best chance of surviving. It can mean the difference between life and death. It can help your loved one, a friend or even a stranger from pain and suffering. As such, we encourage everyone to enroll in a first aid course.

Hunting and foraging for food

Most people know foraging as a wilderness survival skill. But the truth is that foraging is a great means of gathering foods for free. It is a basic skill that everyone needs to master.

Foraging can be as simple as picking apples in the farm or taking a stroll in the woods to pick some mushrooms. It’s a great way to provide foods for yourself and your family without having to rely on grocery stores. You will find a lot of edible foods in the woods. But before venturing into the wild to forage, make sure that you can differentiate edible plants from poisonous ones. Familiarize yourself with the dangerous species in your area to prevent poisoning.

Final thoughts

Disasters and emergencies are inevitable parts of our lives. Even if you live comfortably in the city, it is important to have some basic survival skills in order to ensure one’s survival in the wild. While our day-to-day survival is no longer dependent on them, mastering these skills will ensure that you’ll know what to do in cases of natural disasters, accidents or any unfortunate events.

 

“It’s like regular dating- only better.”

That’s the enticing appeal of the “sugar bowl,” as it’s referred to on the sugar dating website Secret Benefits (www.secretbenefits.com). How is it “better” than other dating services? Well, as the helpful blogs contained within site suggest, sugar dating, which is the official term for the practice of building a relationship on reciprocity instead of traditional gender politics, saves time, creates a fair sense of play, and can be incredibly satisfying for all parties involved.

I signed up as a sugar baby looking for her sugar daddy. I wanted to share my experiences with Secret Benefits, and show all those potential sugar daddies out there what to expect when pursuing their own baby to spoil.

Creating a Profile

I found the setup process to be reasonably easy, as I didn’t have to answer nearly as many questions as the typical matchmaking sites, like OKCupid. I gave my contact information, a general description of myself, and a few photos to get started. I tried to be as sexy, witty, and playful as I could, and with my matches, I believe it worked.

One thing that I wasn’t expecting, but I thought was pretty cool about the site: they have built-in verification services on the site. So, if you’re worried about getting catfished or scammed, you have the option of doing photo or video verification to prove that the person in the pictures is actually the person you’ll be dating. Not every profile has this, but I don’t know why- it made it easier for me to be more open on the site when I could see that a person really is who they say they are. I went through the verification myself…It took about 30 seconds, and once I had the verification on my profile, I really think it gave me a leg up, especially with the video, which I recorded with a “sultry bedroom voice”… that definitely revved some engines.

Then, there were options for photos. Secret Benefits gives you the ability to put a ridiculous amount of pictures on your profile- and since a picture is worth a thousand words, that’s a whole lot of words!

In regards to pictures, another great feature that I liked was the ability to mark some of my photos as “secret photos,” only accessible to a certain few. I could put my sexier pictures there under lock and key, which made me feel protected, yet like I had something a bit more to offer when a particularly attractive daddy came around. Then, if the right guy asked, or I needed to sweeten the conversation with a little extra sex appeal, I could grant them access to the treasure trove of my sexy snaps.

Using the Site

As I alluded to before, I am pretty familiar with dating websites, and Secret Benefits had a format I was used to. I could get a list of profiles for prospective sugar daddies in my area, with the results filtered (if I so desired) by any sort of criteria I wanted: height, weight, distance from my house… I could even search for an area that I didn’t live in, just in case I was interested in having a quick fling while on vacation… it’s all the features you have to pay extra for on Tinder or Bumble, but easier to access.

There are plenty of different kinds of sugar daddies to choose from, and they’re all looking for something different. Rather than wonder if I had what it takes to fit some sort of “sugar baby mold,” all I had to do was consider what each man was selling, and then ask myself if I was buying. With the different types of sugar daddies, there are obviously plenty of different sugar babies to find on the site, as well.

One thing I enjoyed about the site is that the men pay for various things, like gaining access to my Secret Photos. Usually, the price for anything on the site is no more than they’d pay to send over a beer at a dive bar. Just like making the first move in person, the guy pays the fee to impress his potential sugar baby.

I don’t have to pay for anything on Secret Benefits. My prospective sugar daddy picks up the tab for any minor expenses.

The sugar daddy does not, however, have to take the initiative. I send free messages and hit up as many men as I want. If I like what they had to offer, they get a hello from me. This usually leads to a response, which eventually leads to me granting him access to the Secret Photos, and things would progress from there. For really hot prospects, I sometimes even granted men a peek at the Secret Photos on my very first message, by clicking a convenient little box on the messaging screen before clicking “send”. (One final note about the Secret Photos: you can also revoke access at any time, too. So, if a conversation fizzled out, and a guy was no longer a prospect, I could take back permission to view my photos.)

Sugar Dating 

There were hundreds of sugar daddies in my area to choose from on Secret Benefits! That meaning, there are probably even more sugar babies to choose from. I’ve got to say, after a few weeks of getting the hang of the site, and having some fun shopping profiles, I had started about two dozen conversations, of which ten actually resulted in setting a meeting with a prospective sugar daddy in person: an older, successful gentleman who was ready to treat me right, so long as we came to an agreement. Everybody benefits, or nobody benefits- hence the name of the site.

In the end, I found Secret Benefits to be all that I could have hoped for and more. Thanks to the blogs on the site, I knew what to expect, what to watch out for, and how to best conduct myself in order to precisely get the man, and the relationship, that I wanted. After ten dates, I even got myself a sugar daddy, and we came to an agreement pretty easily! It’s the most casual, laid-back relationship I’ve ever had, and I’m loving the feeling of getting spoiled, simply for dating a man that, to be honest, I’d probably have dated anyway, all things being normal. He’s a really handsome guy with old-school manners. Secret Benefits made me realize that being a sugar daddy or sugar baby isn’t something to be ashamed of in 2017. I found meaningful relationships or the casual ones that some of us want, through the site. To be honest, I’ve had more success on Secret Benefits than any other swipe-right site I’ve tried!

It was easier than I’d thought, due to the way Secret Benefits is set up. There’s a blog on the site for ideas, feedback, and direction if you need help. For the most part, the layout is easy to follow, the features are smart and intuitive, and it seems like the whole site is structured to get out of your way as much as possible.

I highly recommend Secret Benefits for anyone willing to take the leap, or to dip a toe, into the sugar bowl. Sugar dating can be complicated, and the rules of the road can be a little intimidating. Secret Benefits made me comfortable with the process by providing features that made me feel safe, and completely in control.

Cyberpunk is a dystopic, grim outlook on our future, set in a futuristic and technology-centered society. The word cyberpunk is often associated with any fashion, game, film or literature that features hackers, advance science, dystopian future view, and other futuristic fantasy. The cyberpunk genre was established in the 1980s. Overtime, the small community of free thinking people began to grow, and eventually gave rise to the male cyberpunk fashion.

Cyberpunk in itself is quite a wide genre. Given its constantly evolving nature, the definition of male cyberpunk fashion can be a bit tough and nebulous to pin down. But overall, it is a little bit dark, a little bit cheeky, and a whole lot of awesome.

As mentioned earlier, this particular men’s style started out in the 1980s. It is a style that is heavily influenced by the science fiction genre. Today, this dark and gritty alternative street wear is considered as the new upcoming style for men.

 

Basics of male cyberpunk fashion

Cyberpunk clothing is edgy, hard, and alternative. Oversized hoods, asymmetric clothing, multiple layers, and jagged seams define this style. This new style of clothing is destined to appeal to your inner war boy. It is designed for the hackers, hunters, and the scavengers of the world.

Male cyberpunk fashion is all about mixing urban streetwear with apocalyptic style and technology. It is the cutting edge fashion for cutting edge people. For this blog post, our goal is to understand this men’s style and translate it into a wearable option. The good news is that cyberpunk look can easily be adapted to a casual style.

 

Everyday cyberpunk look

Image Source: www.hypebeast.com

You don’t need to go shopping to achieve the dystopian look. In fact, you can use some basic pieces in your wardrobe. Distressed jeans, oversized sweaters, longs sleeved shirts, and combat boots make for a great cyberpunk look. Also, accessories can also be used as statement pieces.

To achieve this look, you may want to start with solid-colored clothing, preferably in dark colors. Clothing with distressed and asymmetrical details may also serve as a great foundation for your look. Cargo jackets, distressed jeans, and sneakers are a great combination. Another option is to pair skinny jeans with oversized sweaters and combat boots. For a more futuristic cyberpunk look, try to incorporate some accessories into your outfit. Wrist cuffs, belts, scarves or a simple pair of gloves are excellent options for completing your look. So, feel free to play with fabrics, textures, and shoes.

If you are looking to achieve a more edgy look, then you may customize your clothing. Look for some basic pieces and make them intentionally cyberpunk. Rip them, patch them, dye them, distress them – do whatever it is you want with them. After all, male cyberpunk fashion doesn’t have strict rules. Our only advice is to focus on items with unusual lines and proportions, limit your color palette and to invest in standout accessories.

What to look for when shopping for cyberpunk clothing

Dark clothing

Most people associate this men’s style with black clothing. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should limit your clothing choices to black. You are free to mix it up a bit and incorporate dark colored clothing into your everyday style. Dark gray, dirty white, burgundy, olive, and brown fits with the cyberpunk look. Remember, black doesn’t necessarily mean cyberpunk. However, avoid bright-colored or fluorescent clothing.

 

Versatility

Dark clothing is some of the most versatile pieces of clothing there is. That means you don’t need to shop for a lot of clothes in order to come up with different looks.

Shop for unique and versatile pieces of clothing that can be worn year-round. Choose clothes that have a timeless feel to it. By building your closet around the essentials, every piece of clothing in your wardrobe could be paired with one another. You’ll have endless outfit options throughout the year and for the years to come.

 

Weather appropriate

Most men use the summer heat as an excuse to relax their dress code. They would start dressing like they’re off to the beach. Cyberpunk men, however, don’t let their sartorial standards down.

Black clothing isn’t the best choice for summer. But given that male cyberpunk fashion is geared towards dark clothing, most men stick with black despite the rising temperature. To keep your cool this summer, we highly recommend that you opt for linen or cotton shirts. They’re thin and breathe well. Wide leg trousers, sleeveless shirts, and canvas shoes are also excellent options for the warm weather.

This summer, don’t look trashy. Look deadly every single day, but always consider the weather when choosing your outfit.

 

Where to get cyberpunk clothing

 

Unless you’re willing to spend a huge sum of money, it can be quite challenging to find decent cyberpunk clothing.  There are a lot of options for rave, steampunk or goth, but very little options for male cyberpunk fashion.

The internet is one of the best places to start when looking for unique and good quality items. In fact, there are a lot of online retail stores that sells cyberpunk and dystopian clothes. Check out these stores to get some ideas for the ultimate male cyberpunk fashion.

A good mattress is important for your kids to have a good rest at night. Young children need beds that support their posture and bone strength. They should also allow deep sleep which is crucial for maintaining good health. A high-quality mattress can last for 10 years or more. Therefore, you should purchase one that will grow with your baby and accommodate his/her developing body. Here are qualities of the best mattress for kids.

Support

Support is one of the crucial qualities that all mattresses should have irrespective of their brand or model. With proper support, the spine of your child will be properly aligned, and this positively affects the overall growth of the child. If your child is not well supported when sleeping at night, their growth can be inhibited, and this will negatively affect his/her overall health.

Quality materials

Kids tend to be susceptible to allergies. Therefore, parents should choose mattresses with caution to prevent triggering allergens which can cause additional health problems to your young ones. Choose organic mattress or those made from natural materials such as organic wool, cotton, silk, bamboo or natural latex. Synthetic mattresses are prone to bacteria, dust, and mites and may trigger respiratory problems, skin irritations, and other health concerns.

Correct size

Children are always growing, and you should purchase a mattress that will grow with your baby. You do not have to be buying a new mattress every year because your child has outgrown the current one. If you want longevity and want to save money, you should opt for full-sized, twin XL or a twin-sized bed. A good quality mattress will last for about 12 years, and this will be beneficial to the long term sleep and health of your child. You can read this Layla review for more tips.

Comfortable

Most kids experience poor sleeping habits, soreness and other issues related to restless sleep. These problems are directly linked to low-quality mattresses that offer minimal comfort for your child. You need a high-quality mattress so that your child does not develop bad sleeping habits at a tender age. A comfortable, high-quality mattress will boost the comfort levels of your kids and give them a good night rest.

Durable design

When buying mattresses for children, you should opt for sustainable design. This is crucial because children are known to be quite adventurous, and they love jumping up and down on their beds. Therefore, you need a mattress that can persevere some form of abuse from the kids. This way, the quality of the bed will not deteriorate irrespective of what is done on it. You should also purchase a mattress protector to guard against stains.

Shopping for the right mattress for your child might seem like a stress-free and straightforward process for most parents. However, you should aim at finding a bed that is appropriate for your growing child. This is because sleeping habits usually vary between kids and you should get one that suits your child’s age and developmental needs. With the tips above, you will be able to choose the healthiest, most comfortable and best mattress for your baby.

Glyder’s Styptic Balm is a relatively new product that heals cuts and nicks that result from shaving. It comes in an eye-pleasing black paper packaging, which looks very nice, making you feel good about the product and look forward to using it.

 

Inside the packaging, you will find a nice-looking tube with styptic balm inside. It almost looks like chap stick, but it has a waterproof cap which keeps the balm clean and dry until you apply it.


It is effortless to use. You wash your face, wet the tip of the balm, and dab the tip of the balm directly on your cut. You may feel a very minor sting, but your bleeding will stop in a matter of seconds.

 

How does this all work? Glyder’s Styptic Balm is made out of a bonding chemical called styptics. Styptics are antihemorrhagics, meaning that they promote hemostasis, or stopping a bleed. Styptics have been used for centuries, as they were popular in 19th-century barbershops to quickly heal any cuts caused by the exceedingly sharp razor. Since then, shaving has become easier, and razors are so much more elite, making it harder to cut yourself. However, when your blade goes dull, you don’t have shave cream, or maybe you’re just in a hurry, cuts do happen.

Instead of worrying about covering up or stopping a bleed all day long, use Glyder’s Styptic Balm for Men to make life easier.

Every guy wants to look sharp and fashionable no matter what season. While it’s easy to look good during the fall and winter, men’s summer fashion can be quite tricky. With the temperatures rising up to 100 degrees, dressing well in the summer heat becomes almost impossible.

Under the unrelenting glare of the oppressive sun, personal styles get brushed aside. Men are forced to shed their layers and choose a more relaxed outfit just to get through the next 12 hours without looking dishevelled. The summer months call for men’s casual style. In fact, many of them are seen wearing crew neck t-shirts, sleeveless shirts, shorts and flip flops in summer months. While these pieces of clothing will keep you comfortable during the dog days of summer, they’re not the best outfit of choice if you want to look cool in hot weather.

Men’s summer fashion is constantly evolving, and so should your style. 2017 is the best time to go out of your comfort zone and try something different. Here are some summer men’s fashion trends to keep for 2017. This men’s style guide will go a long way in updating your summer look.

Cuban collar shirt

Cuban collar shirt is defined by an open, almost notch lapel-like collar. The earliest version of this particular shirt appeared in South Africa sometime during the 18th century. It is a classic staple, and it’s making a major comeback. In fact, they began resurging in 2014.

Relaxed, breathable and seriously on trend this season, nothing adds a summer vibe to your style than a Cuban collar shirt. This type of shirt is commonly made out of linen or cotton, which makes it perfect for summer. It is a style that will make you stand out from the crowd in a chic and subtle way. Ditch your everyday button down shirt and opt for a Cuban collar shirt.

To help you truly embrace summer, try pairing a bold-colored or printed shirt with neutral-colored pants or shorts. This will help keep the focus on your shirt. If you wish to wear it to work, pair it with a lightweight blazer to keep things smart.

Printed t-shirts

It isn’t just the Cuban collar shirts that have been making their way back into men’s style. Printed t-shirts are one of the most surprising comeback trends of 2017. The more relaxed way of dressing encouraged designers and retailers to incorporate fun and youthful prints into casual pieces like t-shirts, dress shirts jackets, caps, and even socks.

A good graphic t-shirt can add interest and contrast to an otherwise plain look. It can even pull an outfit together. To incorporate this men’s summer fashion into your everyday wear, simply pair it with a pair of black jeans and a pair of trainers. This offers a versatile and stylish look instantly.

Printed shirts can be a bit tricky to wear, but are actually one of the most versatile pieces of clothing any man can own.

Men’s romper

You’ve probably heard about the RompHim. It’s a men’s romper that people can’t stop talking and tweeting about. Back in May, Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers’ quarterback was spotted wearing what looked like a romper at Coachella. This had the internet in complete stitches for an entire week. But as it turns out, he wasn’t wearing a one-piece romper.

ACED Design took advantage of the hype and started a Kickstarter Campaign to fund the production of these men’s rompers. Thanks to Cam Newton-inspired jokes, memes and viral videos, the creators were able to come up with over $250,000 within less than a week. Now, RompHims are this season’s hottest trend.

This men’s summer fashion trend may not be for the faint of heart, but the truly adventurous men might think about trying it this summer. The men’s romper is perfect for those who want to make a statement.

According to the company, the bro-romper will be available in 4 different colors, namely splatter-print cotton, blue chambray, red chambray, and a white, red and blue which is a 4th of July special edition. Unless you pledged on their Kickstarter campaign, you’ll have to wait until July before they become available online.

Canvas sneakers

The shoes are one aspect that is often overlooked in men’s summer fashion. Canvas sneakers are perfect for the hot weather, and look great with a variety of outfits. They work well with shorts, chinos as well as jeans. The woven fabric lets your sweaty feet breathe in 100-degree weather; thus, keeping your insoles from resembling a petri dish at the end of the day. It’s never too late to get some canvas sneakers into your footwear rotation.

Boat shoes

The boat shoes rose into prominence during the 1960s, during the nation’s obsession with New England prep style. These shoes were originally used to keep sailors safe and prevent them from slipping while navigating the slippery boat deck. Today, however, they are considered as classic summer footwear. They are a great addition to your summer arsenal.

For the perfect summer vibe, we recommend pairing them with a pair of jeans shorts or Bermuda shorts. Boat shoes can be paired with pants as well, but they look best when worn bare ankle. Try rolling up the hem of your pants, and make sure that you leave the socks at home.

Sunglasses

Unlike women, men’s summer fashion can get boring. Often, they are limited to shirts, shorts or pants. One way to spice up your outfit is through the use of accessories, and we think sunglasses are the perfect accessory for summer. They add an air of mystery to even the most boring schlump, make your face seem more chiselled and strong, and they also keep your eyes protected from the sun’s glare.

Sunglasses are bolder than ever this year, with so many different men’s sunglasses styles to choose from. From wayfarer to aviator to round-framed sunglasses, choose a style that suits your face shape and you’ll look pretty damn good.

Weekend Bag

By the time summer rolls around, almost everyone is ready to hit the road. Whether you’re heading to the gym, beach or the other side of the world, you want to make sure that you have a great weekend bag that would carry all your essentials.

A weekend bag is more of a necessity than a luxury. That said, we highly recommend that you invest in a product that is long-lasting, visually appealing and of high quality. From weekenders to stylish backpacks to totes, it’s time to start thinking about the right bag to carry your stuff.

Fashion trends are making a huge comeback

History repeats itself, they say. This old saying seems to be applicable with the fashion world. We are creatures of habits and tend to revert back to what we’re used to. In fact, the past few years have seen a renaissance in fashion trends of the past decades.

 

When men say they need space, some mean it quite literally so and this is where the concept of “man cave” comes in. Men need their own safe space in order for them to have some quality time alone or with their friends. It’s both for personal and entertainment purposes—a place where they could unwind, be themselves, regulate their emotions and thoughts, as well as focus on their interests such as hobbies, games, drinks, movies, and so on.

We have the top 6 most common types of man cave there are: bar, game room, entertainment room, workout room, work room, and the lounge and library. The thing about these is that man cave décor need not be expensive at all. So long as you have the allotted space for it, you can come up with different creative ideas on how you can personalize that area to make it your own space—starting with our top suggestions for affordable décor and items that you can buy to make it more legit.

In blog we trust!

Forget newspapers and magazines, blogs are where we get our information from nowadays. We keep up to date with what’s hip and happening and unlike the days of old, like 2000BB (Before Blogging) where we’d wait for a seasonal list of ‘what’s hot and what’s not’ from our favorite glossies, we now have top fashion bloggers telling us what’s in and what’s out every other day.

The blogosphere has exploded and you can subscribe to or follow blogs on dogs, photography, hobbies and past times, sports and pop culture, but guess what the most followed blogs are? Yup, fashion blogs. And it seems we can’t get enough of them. Whether it’s famous fashion bloggers or just well-dressed peeps around town, being stylish and keeping up with the trends is no longer for gals and metrosexuals. After all, like ZZ Top said ‘every girl is crazy ‘bout a sharp dressed man’!

That’s the good news. The bad news is that unless you’re living in a cave or under a rock, you no longer have any excuses for not being on fleek when it comes down to what you’re wearing. You have been warnedz! To bring you the most popular fashion blogs for men we narrowed our search down to about 300. That’s 300 blogs about men’s clothes, and that’s not even counting blogs from well-known designers or celebrities. And we haven’t even touched fashion vlogs or profiles of fashion focused accounts on Instagram, Pinterest or Tumblr.

Our global village has allowed us to change the way we shop and with online stores it doesn’t really matter if you’ve seen a pair of shoes in London that you really really want and you’re in the States; where there’s a web there’s a way.
To inspire you and get you looking sharp we’re sharing our top 5 popular fashion blogs that will change the way you see fashion and hopefully change the wear you wear it.

Certainly one of the most popular fashion blog, launched in 2013 He Spoke Style is considered to be the go-to site for original content for men and their interests, from careers and grooming products to fashion and lifestyle .

Now this is an interesting one and perhaps some of you might feel it shouldn’t be included here but we think it’s clever and definitely has a target audience. Style Girlfriend is a website for men but not by men. It’s a fresh take on men’s fashion blogs with a girl giving advice on what men could and should wear to impress the female species, if that’s what you’re into. Already a popular fashion blog with guys and gals popping over to find out what’s new and how to style it, Style Girlfriend has also set up an online store, where you can shop the looks as featured.

Another website that’s a little off the beaten track is The Sartorialist, one of the first men’s fashion blogs to be launched, the site is considered a pioneer. Representing street style at its best from around the world, the website’s main aim is to bridge the gap between haute couture or high fashion and street trends in real life situations. The content is fresh and updated enough for you to visit every day. It’s well put together and visually it’s a winner. It is suggested however that if you take yourself and fashion too seriously then rather give it a miss.

The Gentleman’s Standard

Launched in 2008 The Gentlemen’s Standard is a blog for men of color. Unhappy with the way they were represented in the media, and how some men of color represented themselves, founder Glen Antoine Palmer, decided to create a website and fashion blog that would offer a different perspective, a place where young men can learn what to wear for an interview, be influenced by positive role models and aspire to be more than what society expects them to be. The website celebrates what it is to be a modern gentleman. ‘Gent Hints’ offers readers real advice for specific situations and the blog includes product reviews and features especially for distinguished gents of color. The audience is engaged and scrolling down the pages the first thing you notice is the comments and feedback. Clearly The Gentleman’s Standard is doing something very right.

From the sheer volume of fashion blogs targeting men it’s clear there is a need for them. Whether you’re looking for relationship advice, wanting to see what new grooming products are available or checking out the styles and trends, blogs by men for men are here to stay

 1033249144001_2854619054001_how-to-carve-a-turkey
Image Source:www.allrecipes.com
 Carving a turkey is one of the most important duties a man has during Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, the process of properly carving a turkey tends to be a jealously guarded secret. If you’re looking for help, though, you can fire up a how to carve a turkey video and read the guide below.

Start Raw

If you want to look like a rock star (or even like a competent adult) when you carve your turkey, you’ll need to start before the bird ever goes in the oven. While fighting over the wishbone might be a time-honored tradition, it’s actually better for you to get this bone out of the way before cooking ever starts. Get in the bird, and make a series of vertical cuts parallel to each side of the top of the wishbone, and then one horizontal cut where they meet. One quick pull later, and you’ll not only have a bird that’s free of its wishbone, but a turkey that’s infinitely easier for you to carve up when it hits the table.

Pick the Right Knife

When it comes time to do battle with the turkey, there’s nothing more important than having the right weapon. Knives are poor, neglected pieces of equipment in most kitchens, with most people dealing only with a few tiny steak knives during the year. When Thanksgiving hits, though, it’s time to break out one of the centerpieces. If you’re prepared, you’ve got a carver – a big, long, well-balanced knife that’s actually designed for cutting meat, but that most people now think of as the turkey carving knife. You might have one in your knife block, but it’s just as likely it’s hanging out with all of the other fancy kitchen gear you might have gotten when you got married. This is the perfect piece of equipment for carving, so make sure you take it out this year. If you’ve failed to get a carver in time, you can always use a typical chef’s knife – it’ll work, if not as well, and you should probably feel a little bit of shame for using it. As with any other projects, your end results are only going to be as good as the tools that you choose to use.

Get Rid of the Legs

While you’ve probably seen a million movies that feature a happy dad cutting apart a turkey that’s still got the legs on it (as well as those weird little white boots), this isn’t the best solution for anyone looking for how to carve a turkey and get the most meat out of the noble fowl. Instead, you’re going to want to get the legs out of the way as soon as possible so you can get on with your life. This part’s deceptively easy – just take your knife and cut through the skin connecting the breast with the legs, and then cut right through the hip joints. A quick pull later and you’ll have nicely separated turkey legs. Next, you’ll separate the thigh and the drumstick with another quick cut through the joint, freeing up a good bit of meat and separating out the drumsticks.
Reward yourself by keeping these for yourself, or magnanimously gift them to someone suitable at the table.

Play With the Wings

Yes, you’re going to look weird doing this – but it works. You’ll need to remove the wings, and that means finding the joints again. The best way to do this is by moving the wings a little bit – once you figure out where they’re hinged, you’ve found the joint and you can remove them with a quick bit of cutting. You’ll actually separate these pieces again (drummettes and flats), but there’s not any real skill to that part. What you’ll have is a few more bits of meat for the table, as well as the great feeling that comes with knowing that you got to play with the turkey before you started slicing it up.

The Easy Part

Now that you’ve done all the surgical work, you can do the part that makes you look like a turkey master. When carving the breast, just carve along the contour of the breastbone. There’s no art here, and the meat should come away fairly easily. Your most difficult work should come when you separate the meat away, but this shouldn’t be too tough if you can remember to cut it away at the bottom. This kind of carving is not only easy, but it’s what gets you to most of the meat.

Perhaps the worst part of carving a turkey is that it won’t net you any applause. If you follow the guide above, you’ll learn how to carve a turkey and how to get the most meat from your bird. At the end of the day, isn’t getting the most meat what Thanksgiving is really about?

Men’s fashion has seen incredible changes over the years. It is now not just a matter of getting ready for any event or occasion, but a very important aspect of determining the personality of an individual. The attire and the look contributes a great deal in leaving the very first impression on the onlookers. The article has consolidated the list of things that can help you get the best possible formal look. This may help the working professionals seeking promotion and even the recent graduates who are looking for a job.

Either you’ve got an opportunity to interview for your dream job or you have a meeting with your potential client, you have got to look good. There is no doubt about it that your talent is the key for such situations, but you are not the only talented person around. There are others as well and you have got to have an edge over them. You can get that edge with your attire. This article has compiled all the essentials for the upcoming winter that can help in getting ready in the best possible way. If you have these basic things in your wardrobe then half your job is done.

 

The must-haves for a formal look for the upcoming fall is listed below.

 

Thermal inner wear

Starting from the basic, a thermal inner wear is very important to keep you warm. This is the best way to get rid of the bulky jackets and sweaters. This will keep you warm, layered and insulated. The key is to look stylish without compromising with warmth. With this warm inner wear, you can have the sleek look which is otherwise not possible if you are wearing multi-layer clothes.

 

Underwear

A trendy men’s underwear can grace your personality by boosting up your confidence. Thus, be careful while choosing your underneath clothing. Wear boxers if you prioritize comfort. While in case, you want style and comfort, both at the same time, then, you can go for boxer briefs or even bikini briefs. You can even get a thermal underwear for yourself. Apart from wool, even polyester and nylon are the recommended fabric as they absorb moisture and keeps you warm.

 

Waistcoat

If you are wearing a cotton for the day then a waistcoat is a must. It offers enough room to be experimental and at the same time remain stylish. Waistcoats are becoming increasingly popular, owing to the eye-catchy look it provides. It’s color should perfectly compliment your suit. Get it stitched in the right way and you can don the suit in the best way possible.

 

Tie and other accessories

Wearing a tie is not an obligation during summer, but during winter it is important to complete the look of a person. The color of the tie should always be contrasting to the color of the shirt. Other than this, accessories such as pocket square and wristwatches are equally important. Don’t wear the casual and colorful watch with your formal wear. However, make sure that you are not over-accessorizing your outfit. Keep it as subtle as possible. A leather belt matching to the color of your shoes will give an in-trend look. Along with this, you can even cuff buttons and finger ring. Sunglasses are optional as you will definitely not wear them during the interview or in the meeting.

 

Scarves

Scarves do an excellent job of protecting the neck of the wearer. Not only this, it can add a strong element of style to the simplest outfit. The thumb rule of donning a colorful scarf is to keep the entire outfit simple, so that, it provides a contrasting combination.

 

Shoes and socks

For formals, opt for the simple and classic leather shoes. Great and well-polished shoes will broadcast your personal style effectively. However, a footwear that is not clean will destroy the entire look single-handedly. In the case of socks, opt for the darker shades that compliment the suits and make sure that they are not too short.

 

Men’s cologne

You need to smell good when you are such meetings. It is obvious that you must have showered, shaved and used after shave lotion. The major mistake is committed in choosing the fragrance. Avoid using deodorant or perfumes with a strong smell. It should be soothing and pleasant. Otherwise, it will distract the attention of people.

 

Your appearance should be as strong as your presentation and handshake. Get these few essentials for the upcoming winter fall and leave a professional as well as formal impression.

For Thanksgiving recipes side dishes are plentiful. But one of the side dishes we couldn’t live without on Thanksgiving has got to be mashed potatoes and gravy. Now, the thing about mashed potatoes is that they’re exactly what they sound like: potatoes, mashed.

So down at sweet beet and green bean, they’ve concocted a super simple recipe, completely vegan, that’ll satisfy every taste bud around your table.

If you’re willing to get a little wild, though, trade the regular red potatoes for some deep orange sweet potatoes, add a dash of bourbon (yes, bourbon), and you’ll have yourself a party. Food and Wine provides one of the best side dish Thanksgiving recipes there is. The spice of the bourbon punches up the rolling sweetness of the potatoes in all the right ways. But hold on to that bourbon! It’ll come in handy when you get ready to dish out some beverages.
