Want to be different ? The 7 Accessories That Will Help You Stand Out.
Accessories are a man’s best tools to differentiate himself. In fact, between two men who wear the same outfit, it is the one who wears the right accessories who will be more stylish and fashionable.Also, accessories are very diverse. There is a large panoply of accessories depending on your style. Most of them are cost friendly and can be found at a very fair price. You don’t need to spend much to get the little accessories that will make your style different, or help you loop the loop for your outfit of the day.Here 7 accessories that you should have in your wardrobe and that you can use to make your style look completely different.Headwear :It can be a hat, a beanie, or a beret. Any of those can make your style look completely different. Wether your are in a streetwear mood or on a more dressy style for the night, a headwear will make a difference in your outfit.There is a wide variety of headwear that you can choose from. For example, for a streetwear style, a snapback hat or dad hat can make a big difference.Also, wearing a long cuff beanie, red or light grey for example, can help you bring something fresh and original to your casual outfit.Finally, a beret or a hat can be an addition to a nice button up shirt or a white basic T-shirt underneath a well fitted black blazer. This will surely make you stand out at your Saturday night party.Those three types of headwear give you a large choice that you can choose from to personalize your style.Bracelet(s) :Bracelets are an excellent accessory. They are easy to wear, will fit all types of styles and can be either sober (black, brown), or more colorful (red, blue, orange), or both together. Also, they are very discrete, especially if you wear a long sleeve shirt. You can choose to wear one or more bracelets depending on how you like your style, knowing that hey can also be interchangeable.Bracelet can help you break the pattern if you choose to wear a one color outfit. For example, if you go out on a Friday night to a bar, and you choose to wear a black denim and a black color shirt, wearing a colorful bracelet will bring a touch of simplicity and freshness to your style. It will help you break from the “all black everything” style.Finally, finding a bracelet that represent your style can take time. Look for the bracelet or bracelets that you will love to wear every day. Indeed, when you wear a bracelet, it will usually stay on you your wrist all the time.Watch :Watches are also easy to wear, and bring a touch of class and chic to your outwear. They can be a great substitute to bracelets, if the latter is not something that you want to have.Prices for watches can go from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. You can find beautiful watches for a fair price. Some brands know how to match quality and price very well. And the design of their product is great. Those brands can be Fossil, MVMT, or Citizen, that you can start exploring.Whereas, more pricey watches can have different features and better quality, those watches are kept for a lifetime, and some brands that you can look at are Tissot, Hugo Boss, or Breitling.Look at the watch that represent your style the most. Some like a more casual style that they can slip on everyday without thinking. Others might like a more dressy watch that will be more elegant. Some other choices can be sport watches, hybrid watches, or luxury watches like Rolex or Hublot. Also today, countless smart watches that can help you read your messages, track your steps, or go to the next song of your workout playlist are appearing on the market.Finally, the band is an important part for the style you adopt. Some bands can be leather bands, bracelets, straps, stainless steel, or even plastic or rubber. Know which one represent you the most, and know that the band goes hand in hand with the quality of the product and the brand you choose.Make sure to ask yourself what kind of watch you would like to have, and what the budget you want to invest for this type of accessory.Necklace :A small accessory that most of the times goes unnoticed is a necklace. A necklace can be short, and you can hide it under your shirt. In general, short necklaces will be more personal. The intent is not to specially show it, but to have something of value on you, and that you consider as part of your personality.Also, another trend that we see today is the long necklace. It gives a lot of style. It is better for a casual outfit, for example with a basic blank shirt and a grey cardigan. It can be great for a daytime party, and can be worn with other long necklaces too.A necklace will give you that little touch of class and originality without being too much. The long ones can be easily noticed, so make sure to choose one that you love.Ring : This accessory can divide opinions. Indeed, most men will say that rings are more a feminine accessory. But, nowadays a lot men wear rings on a daily basis. Some men wear multiple ones on different fingers. Because of that, you need to own it when you wear it. One important thing to remember is to choose a masculine ring. For example a black ring that you put on your thumb can be very classy. It also can be worn with different outfits. Wether with a streetwear style or with a dressy style, a ring will always work and show that you are confident and sure of yourself. Finally, a ring is the type accessory that you own when you define your style very well. It is added to your collection after you acquire all the basic accessories, like bracelets, headwear or sunglasses.Sunglasses :This is the most common accessory. Let alone that they are useful to protect your eyes from the sunlight and its ultraviolet, it also can be a great attribute to you style.There is different types of sunglasses on the market. Today, some brands produce good quality products for a very fair price. You can also find higher priced sunglasses from bigger brands that will fit you better.Also, sunglasses can have different forms and colors. So, you can always own two or three different pairs that you switch depending on the occasion. That will make you look different in every context, wherever you go.Fragrance :Ever smelled a fragrance that remind you someone you know ? It is because fragrance is attached to a our personality. It engages the senses, and it triggers emotions.Indeed, your fragrance is your invisible accessory. It is the one that represents you the most. It is a great asset to have in your drawer.The important detail is that you don’t need to put too much for it to be noticed. Two sprays on the front and a tiny bit behind your ears is enough. Also make sure to spray some on your clothes. That’s where your fragrance holds itself the best.Lastly, take your time when you choose your fragrance, because the one that represents you will stay with you for years. And of course, you will change it as you grow and mature. Think about taking someone who knows you well when you decide to buy your fragrance. That helps make the right choice for yourself.Conclusion :These are seven simple accessories that you can play with to be more fashionable and reinvent your style over the course of the years.Most of them can be worn together, and will make your outfit look completely different and will help you stand out from the crowd.Finally, these accessories will help you expand your style and garnish your wardrobe with a you will find small pieces of yourself in each one of them.

[Initial Impression] Lands’ End Primaloft Quilted Car Coat, aka Barbour Liddesdale + Primaloft

[Initial Impression] Lands’ End Primaloft Quilted Car Coat, aka Barbour Liddesdale + Primaloft
AlbumI’ve been looking for a Primaloft puffer for this Fall/Winter, but I have been trying to avoid going the Patagonia Nano Puff route, as where I am (Northern California) it is literally ubiquitous. Nothing against the Nano Puff, it is considered the Gold Standard for light insulated shell, but the technical shell-look limits its application for me. So when I found this Lands’ End Coat at 50% off ($75), I was intrigued. It contains 100g of Primaloft (for reference, the Patagonia Nano Puff, contains 60g), but has the classic looks of the Barbour Liddesdale.Design: Right off the bat, this is Lands’ End’s homage to the Barbour Liddesale Quilted Jacket, though Lands’ End Coat is definitely not slim fit, more on this later. It has all the right details, corduroy collar, snap closure up front and rear vent snaps. Where it differs: The sleeves are regan vs traditional compared to the Barbour. The pockets are pleated and dual entry, a nice upgrade. Also, the front has a 2-way zipper in addition to the snaps, also a nice upgrade. Obviously the biggest upgrade is the addition of the Primaloft. While obviously not a light weight technical piece of clothing like the Nano Puff, the combination of warmth and aesthetic is what drew my attention.Fit: As evidence by the reviews on Lands’ End’s website, size down if you don’t plan on layering a blazer or denim jacket, as this is definitely NOT slim fit. Standard mediums typically fit me well off the rack (6′, 170lb, 39.5in chest, 32 waist. Slim build with wide shoulders), but the medium fit is a bit too loose. Where I am (Northern California) I’m most likely wearing this with a t-shirt, a flannel or a dress shirt with a thin sweater under it. So size down if you prefer a slim fit or do not planning on layering.Final thoughts: At $75 I consider this to be a good purchase, though I would have second thoughts about getting it at full price ($150). Not many manufacturers are offering Primaloft (or other synthetic, performance oriented fill) in non-technical shells. This is something I really look forward to getting quite a bit of wear.Besides the obvious and Americana outfits with this, I am also looking for ideas putting some streetwear spin on it. I’m seeing Japanese/British Streetwear fits that incorporate this and other Barbour (or Barbour style) jackets into some neat outfits. The olive color and texture lends itself to some interesting combinations.Would love to hear/see some ideas of how to incorporate it into more streetwear combinations.

A little rant about being a smaller man

A little rant about being a smaller man
I’m 5ft6in, 125 lbs with a 28-30 waist and 34in chest with a 39/ 39,5 EU shoes size ( there’s some discrepancy in size charts but that should be 6/7 US).I never felt self conscious about my size, but it’s something it started to bother me when I started to get interested in fashion.I have most of my clothes altered, I don’t mind having a pair of jeans hemmed, or having a shirt tapered, or other basic alterations. But you know very well some aspects of a garment can’t be altered or it would be too expensive to do so. Shoulders size cannot be altered ( fortunately I have wide shoulders), chest size can’t be touched and so on.I have realized a very good portion of clothes are just out for me, the smallest size would be too big for me. There are some items tipically sized bigger since it’s tradition to wear them more loosely ( shetland sweaters for example) and other brands that are just sized bigger because they like to do so ( I was interested in enginereed garments, I can’t buy anything of their stuff without massive alterations).Some shoes companies, unless their shoes are unisex, don’t even make shoes smaller than 7US. This is fortunately a smaller problem since I’ve found the companies I’m interested in make shoes in size 6/7US, but only just.And I’m lucky we are still in the “slim era” where clothes are supposed to fit somewhat slim, I fear the time when the loose silhouette will be the main fashion.Look, I’m not criticizing fashion brands. I realize an individual of my size is not profitable to target, afterall there are few people of this size. I’m just saying a 5ft10, average weight man, will fit in basically 90% of brands. I fit in 20% of brands. This is a problem tall people share with shorter/smaller men, but for opposite reasons.I used to weight more when I used to go to the gym, I was around 5-6 kgs heavier than now. Unfortunately I stopped going to the gym and lost everything.This is it. Sorry if I made bad mistakes but english is not my primary language. Thank you.

Looking for winter boots from an EU brand or available in amazon.de/amazon.co.uk
Hi all.I read the boots starter guide but most of the brands aren’t available in EU or the delivery is too expensive and have to be processed at the customs.I am looking for boots which:I can wear in light snow/icing – from 10 to -15 degrees CI can wear in the office(informal dress code) without my feet getting too hot. Air conditioning is set to 25 degrees CAre brown, size 46 EU, made of leather.Aren’t too fancy. I have worn T shirts and sneakers all my life since my parents didn’t have money so wearing something too fancy makes me feel self conscious and doesn’t fit with the rest of my wardrobe.*Are preferably under 170 – 180$. I plan on wearing the boots 2-3 years 3-4 months every year.All suggestions are welcomed even if something doesn’t fit my list. I don’t know if they look good but I like these models:https://www.amazon.de/Geox-Herren-Mattias-Chukka-Browncotto/dp/B0792FK7WZ/ref=sr_1_6?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1543585172&sr=1-6&keywords=geoxhttps://www.amazon.de/camel-active-Canberra-Schneestiefel-Chestnut/dp/B079LP5HWR/ref=sr_1_37?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1543585198&sr=1-37&refinements=p_n_size_browse-vebin%3A1890904031%2Cp_n_feature_twenty-nine_browse-bin%3A14603211031&psc=1https://www.amazon.de/Rieker-Herren-39223-Klassische-Stiefel/dp/B01EIJO68A/ref=sr_1_10?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1543585384&sr=1-10&refinements=p_n_size_browse-vebin%3A1890904031%2Cp_n_feature_twenty-nine_browse-bin%3A14603211031%2Cp_72%3A419118031%2Cp_n_feature_six_browse-bin%3A1890636031%2Cp_n_size_two_browse-vebin%3A14223261031&psc=1
