Strike a New Cord with Corduroy!

If you're looking for a new fall suit that will elevate your style, stave off the cold, preserve the integrity of your savings account, and make girls want to touch your triceps area while gently cooing to themselves, well then, compadres, it's corduroy time. Even though it's warm and sturdy, corduroy is affordable, because it's usually made from humble cotton. It also has those nifty ridges (your tailor calls them wales) that feel crazy-soft and make your look three-dimensional.

The Science Of Simplicity: Why Successful People Wear The Same Thing Every Day

Have you ever thought about how much time you likely waste deciding what to wear in the morning? It’s probably made you late to school or work more times than you can count.

We waste so many precious moments concerning ourselves with frivolous details. An outfit will not change the world, it probably won’t even change your day.
This is not to say that fashion isn’t important, as it has an immense impact on culture and, in turn, the direction of society.

Pressed for Time? Here's an at Home Workout to Build Muscle in Under 20 Minutes

Between late hours at work, a lack of access to traditional weight training equipment or just personal preference, some guys just can’t get to a gym. This is perfectly OK because the body will adapt in size and strength as long as the stress of the exercise is intense enough. Training with minimal equipment or bodyweight builds lean muscle, especially if exercises are performed in a slow, controlled manner.
Try these exercises that use bodyweight and dumbbell to get fit at  home fast.  These at-home exercises   have been known to build muscle in under 20 minutes.

Great Places: Smith Commons (DC)

Jerome Bailey's Smith Commons in DC (1245 H St. NE, DC) is one of those cool bars for artists, actors (from the nearby theatre) and Capitol Hill staffers.  A massive structure — three floors plus a deck --- is a great place to grab a drink, listen to great live music, eat or just people watch. 

The second and third floors are billed as the “Public House” and while they have tables for full dinner service, they are most definitely made for drinking.  The hot spot's decor takes inspiration from early-20th-century metalwork factories.The big cushy sofas and banquettes for lounging, make for an eclectic-cool than college hand-me-down chic.

Getting the Most Out of Your Sweats

With the advent of the new slimmer more tapered style sweats, men are saying good bye bidding to the old boxy sweatpants that you once settled for in department stores.   Outside of the new styles and tapered cuts, customers are also seeing a change in construction and fabrics as well. The new sweats are coming equipped with heavier weighted materials and high quality stitching, giving customers not only a more stylish look, but a well rounded look as well.

How To Wear
You can now get the most out of your sweats in the following ways:
  • Sweatshirts and pants are always a go to. However, you don’t have to look like are going to the gym if you aren’t. A pair of cashmere sweats and a vintage style crew and sneakers is a great way to pull off the “I may look like I am going to the gym, but I am really just going to an early movie,” look.
  • Say your friends want to grab brunch and you really don’t feel like changing out of your denim shirt, sweats and sneakers. What do you do? Grab a blazer to go with the sweats you already have on. A well fitted blazer always dresses up any look, plus, your friends won’t think you just rolled out of bed.

Alexander Wang Collection for H&M to Hit Stores Nov. 6

Alexander Wang’s collection for H&M, announced last April, is finally hitting stores (and online) on November 6. The designer had the following to say about the collaboration, which is inspired by performance-wear:

“I wanted to create a collection where most of the pieces have been designed from scratch," Wang said. "There are only a couple of items that are updates from past designs. Rather than creating affordable versions of expensive items, I wanted to design true performance pieces that are within the natural price points of sportswear of H&M, so we were able to create the best version of these pieces, through our vocabulary."
