Chase & Hunter is a men’s lifestyle brand. More than providing it’s community members with tips to better understand women, they also equip them with kick-ass products.

 

Chase & Hunter believes that the majority of men just don’t fully get the intricacies of what turns a woman on. Because that shit is complex. Women are complex. Putting aside actually dating someone – the act of texting alone in this digital age is enough to have most of our heads spinning. That’s where Chase & Hunter comes in.

 

Is my Tinder profile helping or hurting me?”

When should I message her after the first date?”

What type of beard does she like?”

As you probably know already, posting to your close friends’ and family’s Facebook walls is almost as important as attending the family Christmas dinner or attending your cousin’s wedding. However, you cannot just slap down a “Happy Birthday, George! Love you! xoxo” because that makes you look like you don’t actually care, and you really don’t have it in you to write a long, heartfelt letter to them because…that is just weird to do on Facebook unless you’re a 13-year-old girl trying to impress her crush. There is one universal language that even the most inexperienced internet surfers are proficient in: memes. That’s right, from Doge to Caveman Spongebob to soulful Meryl Streep, we all can get a good giggle out of those bold-faced beauties. Here are 18 killer memes that will make you seem like you actually care about Aunt Helen’s 64th birthday, or that will make up for the fact that you totally forgot they existed until you got the notification that their birthday was today.

Fair warning, this post contains pictures of boobs and stuff. They are made out of cake, but some are pretty realistic.

 

 

So, you’re getting hitched. Congratulations! You’re about to embark on the journey to the best day of your life, hopefully filled with joy, laughter, and love between you and your honey. Quite possibly, this time will be one of the most stressful for you, as there are buckets of money to be spent, and your wife, her mother, and your mother are going to fold themselves into wedding-planning machines until they’re satisfied…which could possibly be doing the impossible.

But, what about you? You’re getting married too. Apart from all the planning, you get your final day of being a bachelor. with all of your closest friends, and that one weird second cousin your soon-to-be wife probably made you invite.

Don’t let the goon squad take away from your bachelor party experience. It’s time to go all out and treat yourself! Go clubbing, get sloshed, do whatever you probably won’t be able to do when you get married. For starters, you could get, I dunno, a cake shaped like a massive set of boobs? How about Barbie on a stripper pole? Cupcakes shaped like beer steins? The possibilities are literally endless. Nothing is off limits when you’re coming up with an idea for a bachelor party, and I’m not exaggerating when I say nothing. If I were a baker that specialized in bachelor’s party cakes, I’d see more boobs and butts made of cake than real ones in my life, hands down. So, without further ado, here are some awesome, striking ideas for bachelor party cakes that maybe will inspire you to ask your mom to make you a cake shaped like a gigantic penis.

Men’s fashion is definitely going places. From corporate powerhouse to street style, there are endless styles that they can adopt and totally nail them. The best part is that they don’t even have to be a pro in acing the fashion department. Inspired by these stylist men, these tips will give you a low-down on ‘looking like a million bucks’. Take a look:

  • Go through catalogs – Imagine buying an expensive shirt to work, only to find that the trend is straight out of last season! In a situation like this, your money gets wasted and you end up adding one more outfit to your wardrobe, in which you don’t want to be caught dead! A simple solution to this is to go through the latest catalogs of menswear. They are available easily and all you need to do, is to get hold of a few of them.

Another alternative is to browse through “lookbooks” available online, which will give you, your daily dose of the latest fashion trends for men. Make it a habit to go through the catalogs or lookbooks regularly to get an idea about various combinations to try, ways to wear different items of clothing and so on and so forth.

  • Don’t buy ill-fitting clothes (or shoes) – One of the basic mistakes that a lot of men make is to try and force-fit in jackets, suits, shirts, coats and even shoes. This is a strict no-no. Not only will the ill-fitting clothes make you feel uncomfortable, but also ruin the entire look.

If you are clueless about different kind of fits that you must try or how to buy an outfit that will fit you the best, you can always refer to fitting guides. Also, when you go shopping, don’t be in a hurry and make sure that you purchase clothes and shoes that are of the perfect size for you. Neither too small, nor too big.

  • Leave that comfort zone – Afraid to experiment with style? It is high time that you step out of your comfort zone and give your wardrobe a somewhat, if not complete, makeover. For instance, if you favor dark colored suits over light colored ones, then try buying the latter when you go shopping. In the same way, you can experiment with different prints and patterns, fabrics, cuts, colors and so on and so forth, which were never ‘your cup of tea’. With this step, you’ll realize that you too can carry off one of those looks that fashion models sport. Trust me, even a tiny change in your wardrobe is going to be worth it and you will be astonished at the results!
  • Never get rid of wardrobe essentials – Every guy should have some basic items of clothing in his wardrobe. In no particular order, these are –
  • Plain jeans, preferably dark in color.
  • A pair of khaki and olive green trousers.
  • A pair of gray, black and navy blue chinos.
  • White button-down shirts.
  • V-neck or crew neck sweaters.
  • A full suit.
  • Crew and V-neck t-shirts.
  • Leather shoes and belts.
  • A leather jacket.

On days when you are feeling particularly lazy and don’t want to spend much thought on what you are going to wear, these staples in your wardrobe will come to your rescue. After all, there is nothing that can beat classic style trends.

  • Wear the same thing differently – One of the most common tips that work for both men’s and women’s fashion is – wearing the same piece of the outfit in different ways. For instance, you can wear a well-fitted suit in more ways than you can imagine (and save some extra bucks). To begin with, choose from men’s bespoke suits and follow these pointers:
  • Wear the complete set of the suit and add a tie, a pocket square or both, to look dapper at any formal occasion.
  • Mix and match the suit with trouser from another suit. This way, you can wear all those expensive suits in your wardrobe on more than one occasion.
  • For a casual look, team up the suit with a crew cut t-shirt and sneakers.
  • A V-neck sweater over a button-down shirt is another combination that you can try with your favorite suit. Pair it up with Oxfords to complete the look.
  • A Polo shirt paired with your suit and a pair of jeans is the best outfit when you want to go for a semi-formal look.
  • Opt for a classic look with a white button-down shirt and jeans. Wear it with your suit and leather shoes. Don’t forget your favorite aviator sunglasses to complete the look!
  • Invest in good quality shoes – Shoes say a lot about your personality. This is the reason why, you need to invest in shoes that are of top-notch quality. Don’t settle for cheap fakes or rip-offs of top brands as they are made from materials that tend to wear and tear easily, leaving you in an embarrassing situation and making you buy more shoes year after year. Take your pick from some of the best shoes that should be a staple in your wardrobe.

  • Accessorize like a boss – Nothing speaks luxury like an elegant timepiece. It is a status symbol, and also, an heirloom. And because we are talking fashion here, investing in a wristwatch from one of the top watchmakers will make the outfit appear more elegant. The same can be said for other accessories, which may not be as expensive as the watch but are still an integral part of every man’s wardrobe. These include but are not limited to – ties, handkerchiefs, cufflinks, belts and even hats that complement the look.

To Conclude

Men’s fashion is getting the attention it deserves. This is a good time to experiment with your style and make the most of it and end up looking dapper every time. Cheers!

Young men might have difficulties when it comes to picking their clothes. How to be well dressed is a big question when you are in your 20s.

well dressed gent

This time is an important period of your life, is the time in which you most discover yourself, who you are and who you want to become. It is also a time in which you start creating your career.

Let me tell you something that may come as a shock: this is the perfect time to start investing in important clothing pieces that will be the foundation of your wardrobe for many years to come. Furthermore, looking well makes you feel good no matter the occasion.

On the other hand, you can be flexible in your 20s. Experiment with different styles and brands until you find the perfect ones for you.

How to Dress to Impress?

Keep A Simple Style

Do not invest all your money in too many fancy expensive clothes. Try to buy a couple of classic items that can help you built multiple outfits.

Look for basic slim cuts that fit you perfectly without having too much fabric in excess.

Do Some Online Research

For more information about fashion styles and dressing rules, you can always check some tips on the Internet. The digital environment is full of tips and advice about the fashion industry.

Learn to Properly Accessorize

You must be careful when it comes to good accessorizing. A good pair of shoes or a matching tie can make a huge difference in the way the others perceive you.

colorful and elegant tie

The first impression counts and some people say that the shoes are among the first things to be noticed when they meet a man. Always have polished shoes to match with your perfect suit.

Ignore Fashion Trends

This does not mean you have to be unstylish. It just means that most and foremost, you must listen to your body and notice when it feels comfortable. Also, fashion trends tend to change pretty fast. Young men at the beginning of their career life do not have the necessary budget in order to change their wardrobe two times per year.

Stick to classic clothing items for the core of your wardrobe.

Take Good Care of Your Clothes

Another way to save money and be well dressed is to keep your clothes in good shape. Fold them with care, keep them in your closet when you are not wearing them, and try not to stain them. Also, be careful when you wash them in your washing machine. Be aware of the proper washing temperatures for every fabric.

To sum up, when it comes to how to be well dressed, you must keep in mind some simple rules. Stick to simple clothing items, accessorize properly, and take good care of your clothes. Moreover, do not stress too much over fashion trends. With time comes experience and it will be easier for you to dress correctly after you already have achieved your own personal style.

With the holidays just around the corners, dudes everywhere may find themselves in need to put on something fancier than usual. While casual is the king of fashion (with its smart-casual variation for the office and so on), a dude in his 20s and 30s rarely has any time – or interest – in actually dressing up on the more elegant side of things. Formal fashion and suit outfits are known to be quite expensive as well, but we decided to show you it doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. Here are our top 5 Mad Men inspired fashion items you should consider for all the season’s parties.

1. The H2H Formal Business Vest

H2H vest for men

With this top, you can look professional and cool without much effort. Just go to the online store, pick out the color combo that would suit you best, get the item and pull it on over a basic shirt and tie. Any shirt and tie will do, even if they’re the only ones you actually have in your wardrobe. To keep your style cool, you can wear it with suit pants and a sleek hairstyle, or even go a little wild and pair it with suit shorts or some slim jeans. You can get this H2H vest for about $35 on Amazon.

2. FlatSeven Slim Fit Casual Blazer Jacket

A blazer makes an ideal top coat for winter and the cold season in general, if you don’t live in an extremely cold area and travel mostly by car, as we all tend to. If you choose one which is also slim fitted, you’ll avoid the dreary look of a boy in his dad’s oversized suit, and look relaxed and cool instead, just the way that Mad Med inspired fashion items are supposed to make you look. Forget the parkas and sports jackets: this is touch of elegance that just ups the game instead of dampening it. You can find the FlatSeven Slim Fit Blazer in plenty of color options, some quite daring, on Amazon, for $79.00 to $99.00.

3. A Black Top Hat (from Kangaroo)

If you’ve experimented with Fedoras before on your smart-casual outfits, then a top hat is just a step away. Dare to amp up your game and your style for the season’s coming parties and all eyes will be on you if you accessorize this hat to a mostly dark-toned outfit and you wear it with confidence. You can find it for under $10 on Amazon in this season’s sales.

4. TheLees Casual Slim Fit Dress Shirts for Men

A dress shirt is the ideal shirt to be worn with any suit, vest, formal pants or jeans, underneath a cardigan or directly underneath your coat and so on. The slim fit cut brings this classic Mad Men inspired fashion item to the contemporary style vibes, and makes you look great no matter what your build is. You can find the shirt in a variety of colors for about $25 on Amazon.

5. A Pair of CTM Men’s Suspenders

CTM black suspenders for men

Nothing says elegant but ready to party at the same time like a pair of black suspenders (preferably over a light-colored shirt for extra contrast). Wear a bow tie over the shirt as well and you’ll be the coolest-looking dude at the gathering. Of all the Mad Men inspired fashion items for men, suspenders are definitely the coolest. You can find the CTM suspenders in various color options on Amazon for as low as $5 to $17 (the lower price available for a few options).
