The power of the skinny tie





Time and again, the skinny tie has weathered the customaries of ins and outs associated with fashion phases, seasons, trends and periods. In every (my) opinion, skinny ties are classic, timeless and should join the team of men's closet essentials - blazers, jeans, white tees, black tees, dress shoes...you know the list. Skinny ties are key agents of 'cool', stylish and Gq-esque swag. I started my quest for skinny ties at age 16+, i know I began early for the manhunt of classic style agents. Now at 18+, I still haven't garnered enough skinny ties like I'd like, I'm still latching on to the silk and cotton - my next stop are wool and every other material out there. The versatility of skinny ties is what keeps my appeal for them,

Rules of a gentleman #2

The gentleman never compares himself to anyone, regardless of  status, class or position. As Gentlemen we strive to innately understand that each person is a unique and sole copy of himself, thus let's each man aim to maximize HIS own potential. 


It is also imperative that we maintain a conscious attitude towards selecting our role models. A man is the very least who he tries to be Prov 23: 7 as a man thinks in his heart, so is he


Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else.

Rules of a gentleman

Your phone/digital device is an extension of yourself. As a gentleman, just as you wouldn't associate yourself with certain people, & attributes. Your phone should never be used to call or text any/every body. This is misrepresenting yourself. You have class, so should ur words & deeds - digital and otherwise

Real Men don't wear purses

Filling up your trouser pockets with a wallet, iPod, BlackBerry and keys is both uncomfortable and unsightly. Plus, we all know that regularly carrying a bag is no longer just for ladies. But your dilemma is spot-on — a bag that’s too small or too styled can easily be mistaken for a murse. On the other hand, using a bag that’s even slightly too bulky will make you come off like a shifty backpacker, or one of those awful “frosh.” Fanny packs are sinful once your'e over 13, plus, messenger bags are versatile and come in handy for work, school, casuals and after work engagements.  And no, this is not an excuse to wear glamorous messenger bags. Roots has been spearheading the anti-man-purse campaign with their leather bags, especially the ubiquitous, Zack-Galifianakis-in-The-Hangover-popularized satchel ($158). It’s sturdy and rugged and vaguely recalls Indiana Jones, but is better for adventures than after-work engagements. Equally rugged are Filson’s waxed canvas briefcase bags ($254.99 at Wilson’s), an affordable alternative would be Calvin Klein's. For courieresque practicality without the laptop-sized girth, Diesel offers a sleek, square, suede messenger bag ($265 at Holt Renfrew) that will ensure you avoid carrying the contents of your office around like a pack mule. Or, pick up a green rectangular army surplus bag with a simple side-strap ($10-$20 at Central Sports). And no, this is not an excuse to wear glamorous messenger bags. Local stores like J.Crew, Urban outfitters and local department stores also carry a good selection. Athletics stores like DTLR and Calvin Klein are also good places to browse. Keep it stylish, without loosing comfortability, personality and practicality.
