Make up For Gold Dress:
Heroin and Its History
Heroin, the assailant whose accidental discovery was utterly for pure purposes before becoming one of the most feared additives of all time. Heroin was synthesized from morphine in 1874 though earlier discoveries had been dated as far back as around 3400 BC, (more…)
Great style begins with subtraction.
What do I mean?
To look great is not about buying new clothes.
You first need to get rid of:
Clothes that are strictly functional or overly flamboyant are not considered stylish.
Sometimes, it’s difficult to spot a fashion mistake when everybody else seems to adopt it as a trend.
Which is why we created this list of 20+ things a man should never wear in public.
You’ve often heard me say that fragrance must be discovered, never announced.
Too much fragrance is not only a turnoff, it can cause migraines and allergic reactions.
Most men have a poor sense of smell and become desensitized to their every day cologne. As a result, they end up using too much and announcing their presence with a strong scent.
Develop the habit of wearing the right amount of perfume, applied in the right places. Selectively spray once on your wrists, neck and chest while holding the bottle 10 inches away from your body. Subtlety is the key to impressing while using generous amounts of fragrance reeks of trying too hard.
Whether you are using a stronger perfume or a weaker concentraion cologne, the number of sprays does not change. A weaker scent evaporates quicker, requiring another application during the day. Find the proper balance and your scent will draw people closer rather than repel them
Clothing that displays brand logos is a smart marketing move for the company selling
You are not a walking billboard for a brand advertisement. Advertisers would love this but unless you’re getting paid, why would you want to promote a huge logo or brand on your shirt?
Branding has become synonymous with status. People natually equate labels with quality.
You should never buy designer clothing just for the branding. Your clothes should fit well and suit your lifestyle.
I’m not saying you should never buy designer clothing or have visible branding on your clothes. It is acceptable to purchase a polo shirt with a small Lacoste or Ralph Lauren logo on your left chest.
The key is to ensure the branding is minimal and almost invisible. It should never detract attention from the clothing item.
Keep it simple. There is no need for a fancy brand shirt with big logos.
Despite the best intentions of top designers, emobroidered pants are best left to sophisticated Italian women who have the attitude to match their fancy pants.
Avoid wearing pants that are covered with preppy shapes, designer logos, little whales (or lobsters), flags and motifs.
This is not how you show off the body you’re working so hard for in the gym.
This is not your greatest DIY project.
If you have a good build, people are bound to notice. Showing off your side boob is not going to excite the opposite sex – you may as well go shirtless if that is your intention. It’s better to leave things to the imagination, anyway.
Despite the protests against oddly shaped shoes, men continue to wear them. Shoes with a pointy toe make small feet look gigantic and clownish.
It’s time to retire this passé trend and switch to a more natural looking chiseled toe shoe.
Another extreme shoe shape, the square toe shoe was the rage in the 90’s. The clunky and square design of the shoe is suitable for men with foot abnormalities or broader than usual feet.
Nothing screams late 90’s more than chunky-soled, squared-toe dress shoes. Avoid the symmetrical shape of both shoes, the left and right looking exactly the same.
Avoid making your feet look stubby or like flippers and switch to a more refined curved toe shoe.
Unless you’re wearing diapers and eating pureed food, velcro shoes are a trend best avoided.
It reminds people of the cheap wallets you started using in 6th grade. Your shoes (unlike your wallet) are on public display. While they are functional, velcro shoes are suggestive that the wearer is incapable of tying their shoelaces.

Tight jeans reinforced with spandex that hugs to your thighs and calves, is not an attractive sight. For most men, skinny jeans create an unattrative silhouette.
Unless you’re really thin, you’ll probably end up looking like a lollipop in skin-tight jeans.
If you have to sit or lie down to slip on a pair of jeans, it’s time to reconsider your trouser options.
This passing trend makes your legs look shorter, making you seem less masculine. They are unforgiving to men with a tiny bit of fat around the belly, pronouncing the parts you want to hide.
Buck the trend and say no to skinny jeans.
Avoid jeans with embroidery and sequins on the back pockets. There is no need to draw attention to your backside.
This applies to jeans with symbols or jewels glued on them.
Any top that shows off a little too much man-cleavage shows poor taste and results in the above mentioned public ridicule.
There are much more practical shirts if you want to feel the wind on your chest. A normal V-neck or a Henley is a far better alternative.
