Whether you’re considering traveling across town or to some exotic country, you need something to put your clothes and other personal belongings in. As a grown man, you wouldn’t want to toss your things in a gym bag or a backpack. You want a bag that doesn’t just serve its purpose; you want something that looks great as well.
A duffle bag is ideal for short vacations such as a weekend getaway or a quick business trip. It allows for a few days worth of clothes and is usually equipped with a separate shoe compartment.

You’re too old to be carrying rubber banded cash and credit cards in your pocket. You need a wallet – a good one.
How a man carries his cards and cash tells a lot about his life and personality. For a stylish man, bulging leather wallets that protrude from your back pocket is definitely a no-no. Instead, opt for a thin, clean and classically designed wallet. Get a card case if you want to carry as little with you as possible. This is great when you’re going out for the night or an after-party.

Nothing says sharp-dressed like a carefully selected tie. Whether you’re young or mature, people always assume that they’re dealing with a professional when talking to a man wearing a tie.
Men’s accessories like neckties come in different patterns, colors, shapes, and knot types. As a rule of thumb, always match your tie with the color or shade of your suit or your dress shoes. A tie in solid black or navy blue is definitely a must-have. It will work well with any suit you have in your closet.
Stylish men sometimes feel limited to classic looks. But if you’re looking to add some personality to your outfit, try colored and patterned ties. Fun and quirky ties will also provide that much-needed escapism from the daily grind. They will work well with white, crisp shirts or light-colored, pastel shirts. Also, make sure that the width of your tie complements your body type.

Fragrances have a powerful effect on how people see and remember you. It is an invisible part of your personality. Wearing cologne isn’t mandatory, but it is a powerful extra detail that a lot of stylish men swear by. It may seem like a big deal for some, but they are actually one of the best men’s accessories on the list. Men’s perfume can give you a boost in confidence and make you more attractive to women.
Women like men who smell good. But choosing the right cologne can be a bit of a challenge, especially when you’re faced with a fragrance counter full of those little paper strips and oddly shaped bottles.
To determine whether or not the fragrance suits you, you’ll need to test it on your skin. The scent of the cologne changes when it interacts with your skin chemistry. This is why you shouldn’t just spritz cologne onto blotter paper. Remember, what smells good on your friend won’t smell the same way on you.
Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit De L’homme, Versae Eros, Paco Rabanne 1 Million, and Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio are just some of the men’s cologne that made it to the top list for 2017.

Belts are a fashion staple that can be used all year round. While there is nothing wrong with wearing woven belts, we highly recommend that you invest in a good quality leather belt. You may not wear it often, but there will come a time when you’ll need it.
Leather belts are ideal for more formal events and situations. It’s good to have a few for different occasions. If you’re more classically inclined, you can wear these belts on a daily basis or reserve them for the weekend. Make sure, though, that you match your belt with the color of your shoes. If you’re wearing a pair of black dress shoes, pair it with a black belt.
A pair of sunglasses

Most people underestimate the impact of a good pair of sunglasses to your overall look. From aviators to something a little more adventurous, sunglasses can be a stylish addition to your summer look. They also protect your eyes from the sun’s damaging rays.
If you live in a colder climate, you may not have the luxury to wear them very often. Regardless, we still recommend that you invest in men’s accessories such as a stylish, good quality pair of sunglasses. After all, you’ll need one in summer or when you go on vacation somewhere warmer.

Here are some of the hottest men’s fashion trends for 2018, along with some tips on how to pull them off.
Tropical print shirts

Hawaiian shirts are often brilliantly colored with floral prints or generic Polynesian motifs. They are made from lightweight fabrics, short-sleeved, and feature a collar. These shirts provide an easy way for men to incorporate fun prints into their wardrobe.
Most people assume the tropical print shirts are only reserved for the summer season. While the busy prints and bright colors make them a great choice for the summer, they can be worn all year round. The key is to keep the rest of your outfit monochrome. It all comes down to what you pair with it.
Hawaiian shirts can be worn in a way that you look good. Your shirt should remain the focal point of the outfit. You want your shirt to standout without making the outfit look too busy. White or black pants are a foolproof option to pair with any tropical print shirt. For the warmer months, you can switch the pants with shorts. Also, choose simple accessories like an understated watch or simple shades. Avoid busy accessories or other distractions
Pop of color

Most people wear dark-colored clothing during the winter. With the cold, dark and gloomy weather, along with the lack of color in our wardrobe, it’s not surprising to know that there is a sudden increase in the number of people who suffer from depression during this time of the year.
Most men stick to black, white, gray, and blue. The good news is that more and more men are embracing bright colors and prints, which is why it made it to our list of men’s fashions trends. Cue the endless cycle of black, gray, and more black by incorporating a few brightly colored pieces into your everyday outfit. T-shirts and sweaters are perfect for adding a pop of color. With a brighter hue on top, your darker, everyday look will get an immediate lift. Make sure, though, that it’s your only pop of color or you’ll look silly.
Colored suits have been featured on the runway this season. In fact, designers like Martine Rose, Kenzo, and Tom Ford featured suits in vibrant colors and prints at the New York Fashion Week. If you are looking to move outside of the traditional colors, we dare you to wear one at the office.
If you’re not that adventurous when it comes to clothing, try accessorizing. It’s a simple way to switch things up without being over-the-top and garish looking. Choose a brightly colored bag, accent laces or a colorful watchband that matches the rest of your wardrobe.
Side stripe trousers
Over the past few years, the side stripe pants have made its way in and out of the spotlight. It looks like this is one of those men’s fashion trends that will remain prominent this year. In fact, there has been a surge of popularity of side stripe trousers in recent years. They have become a menswear staple and have been seen by all the major designers.
Side stripe trousers are a hybrid between the suit trouser and the mighty tracksuit trouser. They feature a combination of a clean, modern silhouette and sporty aesthetics. Besides being comfortable, they also seem to work well on all body shapes. Considering all these benefits, it’s easy to see why it is one of the hottest trends of the seasons.
Fabric, fit, and form are the most important things to consider when choosing side stripe pants. You want to ensure that it is loose enough that it’s comfortable, yet it fits well that it flatters your physique. For maximum versatility, always go for opposing top layer. That means pairing these casual-looking trousers with a sweatshirt or roll neck. Avoid anything that is too street-influenced. Otherwise, you’ll look like you just came from the gym.

The monochrome or one-color wardrobe is one of the most popular men’s fashion trends of 2017. Often, you’d see a lot of men wearing an all-black or all-white wardrobe. The trend continues in 2018, but this time, we’re talking about tonal color matching.
Tonal dressing is wearing multiple shades of the same color. You can even mix two or three tones together, and you’ll still rock your look. All-black outfits will still fit in this category. However, you can’t wear it all year round. To keep your tonal outfit from looking boring, try incorporating some pops of color. A pair of blue-tinted sunglasses, a deep brown suede bag, and a silver watch will complete the look. Also, try mixing different fabrics. This will make the different shades work together.
If doom and gloom isn’t your thing, you can always go with beige or navy blue. These are great options as it allows you to inject a bit of color into your outfit while still hanging onto that classic feel.
Stripes are a classic staple in the men’s wear world. This season, we’re doing away from the classic horizontal stripes and start focusing on something more a little vertical.
There is nothing more classic than stripes. In fact, you’ll see this pattern on virtually every piece of clothing you can think of – from shirts and jackets to trousers. Being one of the biggest men’s fashion trends of 2018, vertical stripes are officially menswear’s new go-to pattern.
Vertical stripes give off the illusion that you’re slimmer and taller than you actually are. It is the perfect choice for men who are vertically-challenged. While vertical stripes create an illusion on your body, there is still a right and wrong way to go about it.
Wide stripes are not stylish. As a general rule, you want to keep the stripes thin. Pinstripes are a good example of this. For best results, choose clothing with varying thickness and color of stripes.
In this bold, fitness driven world, most men strive to get leaner and fitter. They want to lose the fat and bulk up. This is why many of them spend countless hours in the gym. If you are one of them, you probably get to the gym and spend at least an hour doing a few sets of curls, fast-walking on the treadmill, and lifting weights. You do the same workout every single day. Rinse and repeat. But despite your effort and commitment to men’s fitness, you’re not seeing the results you want. What seems to be the problem?
Increase your strength and endurance with these men’s fitness tips. Use these tips to start maximizing the benefits of your gym time.
Set a goal

There are several reasons why men decide to hit the gym and workout. Perhaps they notice that they tire easily. Or maybe they gained weight and wanted to shed those extra pounds. No matter what the reason is, most of them would start running feverishly on the treadmill or start attacking the weights. While we appreciate your enthusiasm, that’s not how it’s supposed to be.
Before you start with your workout routine, it is important that you set clear, concise goals for yourself. Why? Because goal setting is necessary to achieve success. In fact, recent studies show that setting a goal could be the trick to a transformation.
Make a list of the things you want to achieve – both short and long-term goals. Do you want to increase endurance, strength, flexibility, or do you want a combination of those areas? It doesn’t have to be a long list. Just a short list will suffice, but make sure they’re specific and attainable. Setting your goals from the start will give you the motivation to achieve them. Plus, it will be easier for you to monitor and track your progress.
Hire a personal trainer

Now that you have determined your goals, you need a workout routine that will help you achieve those goals. You can’t just lift some weights or do cardio exercises and expect great results. Rather, you need a personal trainer, who can provide creative, effective workouts that will help you reach your health and fitness goals. He will create a personalized program that fits your goals, schedule, and budget and makes you accountable to it.
According to a study that was published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine, working out with a personal trainer increases your fitness-goal success by up to 30%. You may have to shell out about $75 to $400 an hour, but if you are serious about achieving your men’s fitness goals, then hiring a trainer is the way to go.
Healthy, balanced diet

Working out isn’t enough if you want to achieve your ideal physique. In order to build lean muscles and slash unwanted fats, you also need to focus on the foods you eat.
If you are serious about losing weight and building muscles, you should prepare to end your relationship with the pizza delivery guy and start to opt for healthy, nutritious foods instead. A well-balanced diet is important, especially if you’re trying to lose weight or tone your body. The right balance of lean protein, complex carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats is the key to getting in shape.
Most people eliminate carbohydrates from their diet, thinking that it would cause them to gain weight. Considering how many calories you’re burning during your workout, you need carbohydrates to fuel your body throughout the day and support your exercise regimen. According to Mayo Clinic, 45% to 65% of your total calories should come from carbohydrates. But that doesn’t mean that you can gobble up on just about any type of carbohydrate-rich foods you can find. You need to choose the right types of carbohydrates. Complex carbs that are found in beans, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are ideal. This simple change will help you shed some pounds while maintaining your muscle.
It is also best to plan your snacks ahead of time. It can be tempting to reach for a bag of chips or head to the nearest fast food chain when you get hungry. But by preparing your snacks ahead of time, you know that there are some healthy alternatives that you can munch on anytime. Nuts, berries, grapes, bananas, eggs, jerky, and yogurt are excellent snack options. Not only are they delicious, they are also filling but low in calories.

Starting a rigorous exercise routine is a key part of achieving your fitness goals. Most men would hit the gym, eager to get their workout routine started. But by the second or third week, they lose the enthusiasm and have totally forgotten about their goals of getting in shape. Make men’s fitness fun and rewarding to make the workout seem as quick and painless as possible.
You can have a good time while working up a sweat. Pump up the music to make exercise more fun and exciting. Load up your ipod, MP3 or smartphone with upbeat music and try to synchronize your workout to the beat of the music.
Some people prefer working out solo, and it’s totally fine. But if you find yourself dragging yourself to the gym or you’re lacking the motivation to exercise, try working out with a friend. To make working out a positive experience, make sure that you choose someone who will push you and motivate you to intensify your workout. With a supportive friend cheering you on, you’ll be able to reach your men’s fitness goals in no time.
Exercising doesn’t necessarily mean hitting the gym. If you are the adventurous type, try engaging in outdoor activities like hiking, running or cycling. These activities will not only help you burn some calories, they also provide opportunities to get in touch with nature. Spending time with nature can enhance your mood and alleviate stress. If this doesn’t convince you go outdoors, I don’t know what will.
It’s that time of the year again when people realize how much weight they gained during the holiday season. As such, most people resolve to hit the gym and get fit. But if your goal is to have a muscular physique, then you need to pay attention to what you eat. It is important to incorporate high protein foods into your daily diet.
When it comes to building muscles, a great workout is just the beginning. You can’t just exercise and expect to become bigger and stronger. Diet also plays an important role in building muscles. You can workout all you want, but you will never achieve the physique of your dreams if your diet isn’t in check.
Anyone who wants to build muscles should increase their protein consumption. Why? It’s because protein is important for muscle building. Protein is made up of amino acids, which your body needs for protein synthesis. Unfortunately, your body can’t make it on its own. Without them, your muscles will simply not grow. Supplementing your diet with high-protein foods is the best way to get essential amino acids that your body needs for protein synthesis. This is the reason why most men drink protein shakes after working out.
Here are 7 high protein foods that will help build muscles and lose fat.

Like poultry, fish is loaded with high-quality protein. However, the protein found in fish isn’t as highly regarded as other types of meat. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t include them in your bodybuilding nutrition plan.
Fatty fish is an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids, which helps reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and cardiovascular diseases. Not only is it heart-healthy, it also helps reduce inflammation. It can also shorten your recovery time between workouts.
Incorporate fatty fish like sardines, tuna, trout, salmon, and herring into your diet. Not only will it enhance your protein intake and build muscles, it is also good for your health.

For years, eggs have been considered more of a health risk than a healthy food. Sure, egg yolks do contain fats (5 grams), but only 1.6 grams of this is saturated fat. Don’t be scared to eat eggs.
Eggs are an excellent high protein food option. In fact, it is one of the most versatile and complete foods available. Besides protein, it is also packed with essential amino acids, vitamin D, choline, and the right kind of fat. For those who are looking to build some serious muscles, you should make eggs a part of your meals. In fact, we encourage you to increase your egg intake.

Almonds are the perfect snack for bodybuilders. Not only will it provide you with an optimal blend of protein, it will also provide you with the energy you need before a workout. Packed with protein, nature’s magic bullets can also help you build muscles.
A quarter cup of almonds contains 8 grams of protein and is also packed with a high amount of magnesium, which helps boost energy. Although nuts are considered as a healthy snack, they are also high in fats and calories. Make sure that you limit your consumption to about one-fourth of a cup. This is especially important if you’re watching your weight. If you eat more than that, your body will be storing fat instead of building muscles.

Apparently, the diet staple of a 1970s housewife is perfect for bodybuilders like you. In fact, its protein content may be comparable to that of an egg. A cup of cottage cheese contains about 28 grams of protein, 250 grams of calcium, and 163 calories. It is one of those foods that should be included on every bodybuilder’s grocery list. Unfortunately, this protein superstar is afforded secondary status.
Cottage cheese is not only rich in protein, it also contains vitamin B12. There is no doubt that the cottage cheese deserves a place on a musclehead’s plate. Make sure, though, that you pick up the low variety.

For those who are looking for high protein foods that are healthy and delicious, this may be the answer you are looking for. Greek yogurt isn’t just your average yogurt. In fact, it is made by straining excess liquid and carbohydrates from the product. The end result is a thicker product that packs twice as much protein than the regular yogurt. This should be a staple of any muscle-building diet.
Greek yogurt is the ideal workout partner. It is packed with muscle-nourishing nutrients such as protein, vitamin D, and calcium. All of which are essential for muscle growth. For best results, always choose the plain variety. You can also throw in some fruits for added flavor.
