As promised, here is the remainder of the gift guide. And not a moment too soon, with only 6 more shopping days left. So get on it fellas. In honor of the lack of time, here are the remaining gift ideas, in easy-to-digest (unlike my 1/2 lbs burger I just hoovered) list format. Techie/Design Gifts…Read the Rest
Yesterday we covered clothing, and so now we move onto the accessory that needs a post all to itself: jewelry. Yes, women like jewelry because it tends to sparkle, but I’m informed that there are more sentimental reasons that aren’t also shared in common with a cat: they like jewelry from you because it can…Read the Rest
As I get older, it seems that the time available for Christmas shopping gets shorter and shorter, while gifts get more complicated. There just isn’t enough time to sift through all the offerings, while coming up with a gift that is both thoughtful and unique. PG, after polling some fashionable, in-the-know ladies, has put together…Read the Rest
I know the scarf post was a bit light on exactly how to wear one, mostly because I couldn’t find any acceptable images. It was more to open your mind to the possibility of the scarf as an accessory, since I don’t see many normal guys wearing them. However, I came across this post that…Read the Rest
Commenter jc brought up a good point about the importance of a guy knowing how to sew on a button. At first I thought “I’m a man, I don’t sew. I kill things. With my fists.” Then I realized that it’s stupid to pay somebody to sew on a button when it’s a perfectly easy…Read the Rest
I recently drove through downtown during lunch time and it was like a rally for Office Max workers on the streets. I saw so many pleated khaki pants, blue button downs, and white undershirts that I wanted to stop and ask if somebody could help me with my printer cartridge. When it comes to business…Read the Rest
In my inbox yesterday was Martin+OSA’s new Fall Shop by Outfit offering, and I thought *great* some new clothes to let the reader in on. Not so. Most online shops have a similar feature of showcasing outfits, but it should be utilized more because frankly most guys are lazy. Especially when it comes to buying…Read the Rest
A little secret guys: your undershirt is important. This ranks as one of the most common complaints by women about a guy’s attire. I know you may be saying: “Pffft. Chicks are crazy. It’s just an undershirt. Why are they complaining?” And the simple answer is: because you can see it. Your undershirt should only…Read the Rest
I’m consistently amazed as to how often guys neglect to wear pants that fit them properly. Ill-fitting pants may even beat out ugly shoes as the most common mistake made by guys. I’m curious as to if this is because most guys don’t own a full-length mirror and rely upon their bathroom mirror that only…Read the Rest
For Lesson 1 I’m going to borrow an image from the most recent Johnston & Murphy catalog to help punctuate my point about how a shirt should fit (for now, ignore the ugliness of the shirt). Now, this isn’t me bashing J&M. I actually think some of their shoes are fantastic. But, their clothing line…Read the Rest
The way that your clothes fit on your body is probably the single most important, yet easiest aspect of your wardrobe to change. You can have the most expensive clothing in the world, and still look like a scrub if the clothes don’t fit your body properly. Most guys wear clothing that are too big,…Read the Rest
Style. For most guys it’s a dirty word. I’ve been called gay so many times by my buddies that it might as well be my nickname (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Those who are concerned with their style conjures images of effete, limp-wristed guys. But where does that come from? We like style…Read the Rest
