Style Habit Tips - 25 Timeless Habits Of Stylish Men

Habits Of a Stylish Man

 

10 habits of a stylish man

 

No matter the age or the occasion. It’s always Sunday at the church kind of feeling.

We change outfits during the day. We do it since we are little – remember we don’t have uniforms at school so clothing is an important part of representing who you are (and how much you have, but let’s not get there…).

Habits Of a Stylish Man

 

Men who dress to impress don’t get there by accident. They weave similar tasks into their daily schedules to ensure that they are always looking their best.

 

Here are Ten important habits of well-dressed men:

1)They know fit is most important.

mens suit fit guideIf you spent 500$ on a suit and it does not fit well, then what are your expression.
In most of the cases, it will be “Oh Shit !”

No matter how much you spend on clothes or fabric, if it’s a bad fit and doesn’t suit your frame, it will only spell disaster. Wearing clothes that fit isn’t synonymous to wearing clothes that are fitted.

Wearing skin-tight shirts, even if your physique is something to be proud of, is still a huge no-no because it simply doesn’t look elegant. It looks like you’re trying too hard to get attention.

So I say only wear cloth that is made for you. dress up for yourself, not others.

2)They take care of their wardrobe

Stylish man wardrobeEvery stylish man understands what should be in their wardrobe and should not.

Most of us thinking maintaining a wardrobe with stylish and trending cloths is difficult as well as expensive.

But this is not the case its depend on the skills of a stylish man how can they manage their wardrobe and make it perfect.

It’s essential that you understand the rules of the game. Understand what looks good and what doesn’t, and then, once you’ve mastered the basics, you can upgrade your style and go for some nice personality quirks.

No matter who are you, just take care of cloth that is best suited to the occasion as well as to your personality.

3) They make a statement with simplicity.

stylish manA stylish man knows what to wear and what to not on any occasion. They know What to wear at a wedding party, or at dinner, the office, at home, the workout, they know all.

They know the black tie is necessary for a Wedding suit, they wear essentials like black and white V-neck T-shirts, dark, well-fitting denim and tailored white dress-shirts.

4) They trust on quality, not quantity.

quality shirts for men

Everyone wants to save money especially when shopping. in this age of internet every brand on your fingerprint. you can see the same Jackets at the price of 300$ and on sale it just 60$.

let’s see the difference in a real example.
If you buy a sports jacket at 200$ or 300$ and you wear it 20 or 30 times its cost for terms of price is $10.
On the other side if you buy a sports jacket at just $60 and it will worsen after wearing 2 to 3 times. it will cost you more than 20$ peruse.

Most Important most of us should be quality conscious not quantity conscious.

5) They are not Brand Addictive

why we are brand addictiveI want to ask a simple question

“Why do some of us have a strong brand addiction? ”

Its more shocking for you to most brands does not manufacture their product themselves.
As I know personally they outsource it.
A recent example in my mind is of H&M Brand. They outsource All their product to Asian countries Like Pakistan and Bangladesh For clothing.

We take one more example of iPhone and Samsung products.
In 2018 Most part of iPhone was assembled in China. In 2018 A world biggest Samsung Factory start operations in India. According to the report, more than 10 million Samsung mobiles are assembled in India in 2019.

In the end, I would say

“The ideal customer— product relationship is what good brands build their identities on; and then as the brand expands, it repeats this with other products”

 

6) They know the power of undergarments

mens underwareDo you think you are the only person who can see his undergarment?

Yes, you are right but this does not mean it’s unimportant.

Wearing good quality underwear will make you feel more confident and relax. You wouldn’t wear a sweat-stained, drawer-crumpled shirt to the office, would you? Treat your pants with the same care that you afford the rest of your wardrobe.

7) Take care of cloth.

cloths careWhen you Buy a piece of cloth from a good Brand (remember I am talking about goods brand which is affordable) you will see a Product care Tag on the cloth. The most common instruction include

Do not Iron This t-shirt
Dry clean only etc….

The reason behind This They want from you to take care of your important piece of cloth.

The stylish man keeps clothing in mint condition, visiting a dry cleaner regularly and storing pieces appropriately. It’s the little things that count, like having dress shirts dry-cleaned and ironed or folding cable knit sweaters loosely to sustain their shape.

8) They want Complete Look.

In my opinion, The complete look will consist of the following things.

TYPES OF LEATHER SHOES

Types Of Leather Shoes

 

Fashion trends changed over time according to the choice of the person. Similarly, Shoe trends also change over time and vary according to the taste and fashion of peoples.

There are many types of Leather shoes for Men’s and Women’s.some people decide shoe types by their leather material and some describe it by occasion. Here we are sharing the most common types of Leather shoes.
Letting you decide which is used for Formal or sports or Dating etc….

1) Oxford Shoes

An Oxford shoe is characterized by shoelace eyelets tabs that are attached under the vamp a feature termed “closed lacing”.
Oxfords were plain, formal shoes, made of leather, but they evolved into a range of styles suitable for formal, uniform, or casual wear. Based on function and the dictates of fashion, Oxfords are now made from a variety of materials, including calf leather, faux and genuine patent leather, suede, and canvas.

2) Derbys Shoes

These shoes are also similar to Oxford shoes and also called formal, dress or office shoes.
A derby is a style of boot or shoe characterized by quarters with shoelace eyelets that are sewn on top of the vamp. This construction method, also known as “open lacing”, contrasts with that of the Oxford.

3) Lofars Shoes

The term loafer is used for any type of shoe which does not have any kind of lacing or fastening system
A less casual, earlier type of slip-on is made with side gussets (sometimes called a dress loafer). Made in the same shape as lace-up Oxfords, but lacking the laces, these shoes have elasticated inserts on the side which allow the shoe to be easily removed but remain snug when worn.

4) Work Boots

work boots are the boots which provide protection to foot as well as ankles or sometimes lower legs.
Different companies have different types of work boots like e rigger boots, dress boots, Chelsea boots, fashion boots, cowboy boots, mukluks, etc.

5) Brogues Shoes

Brogues are probably some of the most versatile shoes in fashion. I would actually make the case they are the most versatile if the occasion called for it.
Brogues were originally designed for tramping through wet fields, and the punched holes allowed the water to drain, hence they were ‘weekend’ wear, or ‘not in town’
So brogues are far less formal than plain toecaps, and brown is far less formal than black.

6) Monk-straps

A Monk-straps shoe is a style of shoe with no lacing, closed by a buckle and strap. It is also known as a monk strap, and has been described as the “most advanced” dress shoe.

7) Ballet shoes

A ballet shoe, or ballet slipper, is a lightweight shoe designed specifically for ballet dancing. It may be made from soft leather, canvas, or satin, and has flexible, thin soles.

8) Sandals

Sandals are an open type of footwear, consisting of a sole held to the wearer’s foot by straps going over the instep and, sometimes, around the ankle. Sandals can also have a heel.

9) Backless Heel sandal

They are very comfortable to be worn. They usually work as casual shoes but can also be worn in a professional work environment. This shoe is usually meant for woman, however some mules are also designed for a man.

We can divide the heels into the following categories.

Low Heels – The upper limit for heels of these shoes is 3 inches.

Medium Heels – Shoes with heels ranging from three to five inches are categorized under medium heels

High heels – These are shoes with high heel which is tapered and narrow. The heel is known as spike heel too. These are usually above five inches are recommended for an elegant look.

How to choose right shoes for your feet

The Ultimate Guide To Buying New Shoes

In this Article, we are going to cover “How to choose the right shoes for your feet ?  or The Ultimate Guide To Buying New Shoes ”

Finding a great shoe is an amazing feeling, but discovering one that looks good and feels even better.
Best shoes are ones which you can wear anytime and on many occasions and the one for which you don’t have to think twice before wearing them.

Which are Most comfortable shoes?

Shoes are something that everybody wears daily. There are different types of shoes available online. The best shoes according to me are the ones that fit you, give a good grip while walking or running.

Here is The Ultimate Guide To Buying New Shoes?

1)choose the right material

A wide variety of leathers are used to make shoe uppers and it’s not always easy to clearly differentiate between the types. The most common types of leather are

. Full Grain or Top Grain Leather – ( ” the best ” )
. Corrected or Embossed Grain – ( ” 2nd best”, full-grain)
. Split Suede – ( “functional and inexpensive leather hides” )
. Nubuck Sueded Grain – ( “look but don’t touch – very sensitive leather”)
. Reconstituted, Bonded or Fibre Leather – ( “Recycled, particle board” )

2)Choose the right color

Choose the Right Color of dress shoes

 

Before choosing for the best color for shoes you should keep in mind that,

A black pair of shoes would be the smartest color in my opinion because it’s an absolute must-have in every man’s wardrobe,” says Andrew Nicholas Vieira, senior director of men’s product development at Aldo.

“Everyone needs a clean, simple black leather lace-up.

In my opinion, color mostly depends on the choice of the person who wears shoes.

3)Choose the right Style

 

stylish trends for mens

 

Fashion trends changed over time according to the choice of the person. Similarly, Shoe trends also change over time and vary according to the taste and fashion of peoples.
There are many types of Leather shoes for Men’s and Women’s.some people divide shoe types by their leather material and some describe it by occasion.

4)Choose the right sole

Shoes soleThe sole of a shoe, also known as the outsole, is the bottom part of the shoe that comes in direct contact with the ground. rubber, Leather synthetic and other type of material. But in my opinion, the rubber sole is best for shoes.

Rubber can be categorized in two ways: natural and synthetic.

NATURAL RUBBER

Natural rubber is elastic, very soft, and comfortable for athletic shoes. Its main drawback is that it’s not wear-resistant, meaning it does not last long. Natural rubber is often used for indoor sports shoes.

SYNTHETIC RUBBER

On the other hand, synthetic rubber can be divided into hard, sticky, carbon, air, environmental protection, and wear-resisting rubber.

Leather Sole: Some brands use Leather sole for Shoes, as a leather expert it does not make any sense in my experience.
Last Month I got a pair of higher-end footwear, and I think leather soles really don’t make any sense. I walk three blocks to work and then spend the rest of my day in a carpeted office. Within a month, my shoes need to be resoled.

5)Choose the right size

 

 

Shoes size chartHowever, once the foot gets longer or wider it does not go back to its original size. The rule of thumb to live by when buying a pair of shoes is that there should be a thumb’s width between the tip of the longest toe in your foot and the end of the shoe. …

Always buy a pair of shoes that fit the bigger foot.

6)Price of shoes

Some people think that if they price high for their shoes they will get high-quality shoes.
No doubt price is a primary factor for determining the quality of leather shoes, but the high price does not guarantee the highest quality.
sometimes a lower price product is better than the high price products. One of the best tips for you for purchasing shoes don’t see the brand name, just read reviews of customers which tell the true story.

7)The durability of the shoes

 

Durability of shoes

 

The durability of shoes means Ability to exist for long without significant deterioration by resisting the effects of heavy use, drying, wetting, heating, freezing, thawing, corrosion, oxidation, volatilization, etc.

The durability of shoes varies from person to person, some people seem durability in the sense of shoe age and others say to replace your shoes every 400-500 miles or so.
Mostly Leather Shoes Last Long More than 5 years. but it heavily depends on how you care and wear your shoes.

8)Comfort Features

 

Comfortable Shoes are those which helps you in every situation. If you are at your working Place or attending any function, Shoes Must look Good as well it should be comfortable too.

If you have to walk a lot at your workplace then shoes must have Good cushion so heel should not pain, And Sole and outer-upper material should not make your feet sweaty.

Types Of Leather

Types of leather used for Making shoes

TYPES OF LEATHER USED FOR MAKING SHOES

 

I think most people want to know TYPES OF LEATHER USED FOR MAKING SHOES. Let’s shortly talk about the history of leather shoes.
It’s hard to imagine what life was like when shoes weren’t discovered yet. Everything started because of a real and practical need to protect the feet from outside effects.

Short History Of Leather Shoes

A Brief History Of leather Shoes

19th of September, 1991 was an important date for shoe history. On this day, a mummy was found in a glacier in the Ötztal Alps. Researchers also discovered a pair of well-preserved primitive shoes on so-called Ötzi’s feet.

The shoe uppers were made of deerskin, the insides of the shoes were made of woven linden bast, the cushioning and isolating layers were made of grass fibers, and the soles were made of bearskin.

The footwear was estimated to be roughly 5,300 years old. This discovery, combined with research conducted upon 40,000-year-old Chinese skeletons as well as paintings found in the Altamira Cave dating back to 15,000 – 12,000 B.C., demonstrates that humans developed the need to protect their feet from the elements quite early on.

Where the leather come from?

This is the question that every person want to know that. most people think that this is a tricky question, but I think it’s very easy to find the answer to this question.
Normally the leather used in making shoes comes from animals skins. These animals are specially rared for the purpose of meat and leather in farms just as production in a factory.

2)Aniline leather

Aniline leather
Aniline leather is the most natural looking, with natural surface visible, but is less resistant to soiling.

3)Pull up leather, Oiled, greased or waxed leather

Pull up leather
Pull up leather, Oiled, greased or waxed leather is robust smooth leather or nubuck leather, to which a greasy – oily – waxy finish is applied. Often these waxes, oils or fats are also dyed and therefore such leathers have a slight risk of dye transfer. Such leather is labeled as oiled leather, waxed leather, pull-up leather, saddle leather or as vintage leather.

4)Suede leather

Suede leather
Suede leather is made from the underside of the skin, primarily from lamb, although goat, calf, and deer are commonly used. Splits from thick hides of cow and deer are also sueded, but, due to the fiber content, have a shaggy nap. Because suede does not include the tough exterior skin layer, suede is less durable but softer than standard (“full-grain”) leather.

5)Vegan Leather

Vegan leather
Vegan Leather refers to leather that is tanned with oak and spruce bark. Also, quebracho, tara pods, olive leaves, rhubarb roots or mimosa are common. These substances are placed in a pit along with the skins and hides. As these tannins are derived from plants, the leather is called vegetable-tanned leather. Also, the term “natural leather” is used.

6) Cowhide Leather

Cowhide Leather
Cowhide is the natural, unbleached skin and hair of a cow. It retains the original coloring of the animal. Cowhides are a product of the food industry from cattle. Cowhide is frequently processed into leather.
Mostly cowhide processed into regular leather without hairs of the cow.

7)Artificial leather

Artificial leather also called synthetic leather is a material intended to substitute for leather. Artificial leather is marketed under many names, including “leatherette”, “faux leather”, “vegan leather”, “PU leather” and “pleather”

How To Avoid Airline Baggage Fees

How To Avoid Airline Baggage Fees?

 

There are a lot of things you need to carry on when you decide to take a trip outside. An essential part of your weekend or trip is what you use to bring your items.

Most major airlines allow you to bring one carry on and one personal item in the cabin with you.
Planned right, you can use that personal item, like the new duffle from the Outbreaker collection, as overflow from your carry on and avoid baggage fees.

Leather duffel bags are the best choice because they are for a lifetime. You need to follow these simple guidelines to pick the right cabin-size duffel bag!

Choose the most suitable bag for your travel

 

mOST SUITABLE TRAVEL BAGThe most suitable bag for your travel is a duffle bag.

The best part about duffle bags is they’re all about the room. The middle compartment is always the largest, and no matter how many pockets there are outside, they can usually hold a huge amount on the inside.

My Girlfriend prefers duffels bags to rolling suitcases.

 

Airline Luggage Rules

airline luggage rules
Although each airline sets its own rules for how large both checked and carry-on leather duffel bags can be, they’re all dealing with the same types of aircraft.

So it’s little surprise that a fairly standardized set of sizing guidelines has emerged, purely by accident.
Your leather duffel should be at max –

Inches: 22″ long x 14″ wide x 9″ tall

Centimeters: 115cm (56 x 36 x 23 cm)

 

Your leather duffel should be under specific weight.

US airline rules

 

You cannot take a big leather bag and hope it’s allowed.

Most airlines limit you to take 18kgs of cabin-sized baggage on your trip. You shouldn’t pack your luggage heavier than that. It’s best if you limit yourself to an 18kg bag; the standard airline baggage limit.

Check with your airline before you board just to make sure.

 

Final Word

 

Luggage takes so much abuse from airlines, and wise travelers don’t waste money on recognizable fabric patterns and unnecessary frill.

Airlines rarely accept liability for damage to even the most expensive pieces. So instead of blowing your travel budget on luggage, equip yourself with four smart pieces that hold everything you need and won’t wear you out on the walk through the airport.

Resilient items from discount stores will last far longer than you expect, and by purchasing practical, low-cost luggage, you can use more of your money to enjoy your trip.

MAINTAINING YOUR LEATHER

Cowhide Leather

Maintain your favorite leather pieces regularly to ensure soft and supple leather. Leather can be cleaned and restored with leather care products designed to clean, condition and protect.

 

Leather Care can help maintain your product longer. We recommend conditioning your leather at a minimum of every 3 months. If you are in a dryer (hot or cold) climate please condition your product as soon as it feels less supple, dull or faded.

Vegetable tanned leather when conditioned should feel slightly oiled and look rich. Similar to the nature of skin it needs to be moisturized as soon as it feels dry.

 

Tips & Tricks

  • Keep cosmetics inside a pouch or small case. Cap all pens and anything that might leak on the leather.
  • Avoid cleaning products with alcohol, turpentine or other mineral spirits. We recommend OLKEZ Leather Care products, specially formulated to extend the life and preserve the natural beauty of the leather
  • .Store leather bags properly when not in use; keep out of direct sunlight and in low humidity as sunlight fades and dries leather.
  • If the leather gets wet, absorb as much water as possible with a thick hand towel and then air dry.

 

How To:

1. The leather is susceptible to absorbing grease and oils; handle with clean hands. Repeat every 3 months or as needed to clean, condition and protect leather goods from soiling and water spots.
2. Apply a cleaner made specifically for the leather needing maintenance. We recommend using our All-In-One Leather Solution.
3.Using a soft cotton cloth, apply approximately 1 oz. of the solution all over the leather.
4. Allow the leather to dry for at least 12 hours away from sunlight and heat.
5. When dry, buff the leather with a soft cotton cloth using a circular motion.

  • Condition leather once a year to repel water and keep leather soft.
  • Dampen a soft cotton cloth with warm water.
  • Warm the leather with a hair dryer on low for 30 seconds
  • Apply Mink Oil Crème, including the strap and all seams and stitching.
  • Allow leather to dry for 12 hours away from sunlight and heat.
  • Apply a second coat for additional weather protection.

 

REMOVING SCRATCHES & SPOTS:

 

HOW TO REDUCE SCRATCHES:

 

  • Leather is susceptible to absorbing grease and oils; handle with clean hands.
  • Locate the scratch or spot on the leather goods
  • Using the oils from your hands, bend and work the spot back and forth over the scratch and marks.
  • Continue as needed working the leather. The scratch will continue to disappear over time.

HOW TO REMOVE SPOTS:

1. Remove spots as soon as they appear; don’t let it sit on the leather too long.

2. Use a baby wipe and fold it in half. Do not use wipes that contain alcohol, dyes or fragrance.

3. Place your hand on the opposite side of the stain and wipe away, cleaning the spot and surrounding area.

4. Rub with moderate pressure to remove the stain; using too much force may discolor the leather.

 

FABRIC CARE:

Taking care of the fabric will help ensure the life of your leather goods. Every OLKEZ piece is designed with leather. When maintaining the fabric on your leather goods, be careful to never get the leather wet as it will discolor, wrinkle or crock.

 

HOW TO CLEAN COTTON CANVAS, WOOL, AND RAW SILK:

Using a soft-bristled brush, gently brush the canvas using a circular motion.

2. If the spot remains, dab gently using a soft cotton cloth with warm water without any detergent.

3. Allow the spot to dry.

4. If the spot still remains, use a mild detergent with a mild concentration (such as Woolite) and spot clean again; use a soft cotton cloth with the mild detergent solution and dab gently.

Note: We recommend performing a test in a hidden place to ensure the detergent will not alter the color of the fabric.

5. If the spot still remains, please contact our Customer Service.

what should be the cost of a leather jacket?

 

 

 

 

Leather is always a huge trend, come fall, and while you might be tempted to spend your money on a faux leather jacket, I think, instead, you should invest in a real leather jacket.

 

The real leather jackets are durable and fashion piece of cloth, which everyone wants to buy a leather jacket. But most people do not know why they should get real leather jackets. They think real leather jackets are so expensive in terms of price.

Let’s make this clearer in terms of the price of real leather jackets and how much time we use it
.
For example,

if you buy a real leather jacket for $400, but you will use it for the next 10 years, it means that it costs you only $40/year. If you use it 100 times in a year, the cost/use is $0.4.

From experience, we can tell you that real leather jackets can very well last more than 10 years.

On the other hand, if you buy a leather jacket for $60, but you will use it for the next 1 years, it means that it costs you only $60/year. If you use it 100 times in a year, the
cost/use is $0.6.

This is the difference that most people do not understand but intelligent people like you realize quickly.

I have noticed that the real leather jacket cost should be between ($150-$400).

The real leather jackets are expensive but nowadays there are many new brands that are working on this thing and providing quality leather jackets at very reasonable prices. We are one of them who are help people to find their best leather jackets

I hope this information is helpful to understand what should be the cost of a real leather jacket.
