2. Spacey wallets :

Why pile your jeans pockets with notes and coins when a wallet can serve the purpose? A wallet is no longer just a necessity; in fact, it’s a fashion trend by itself. Colours like black, brown, navy blue, and maroon make great choices for all seasons.

3. Leather belts :

Apart from holding your pants in place, a leather belt makes you look serious and sophisticated. It looks great on all formal and informal wear. Avoid going for flashy and neon colours as they will make you look out of place. Black and brown are all-time favourite colours to invest in.

6. Playful hats :

Gone are the days when wearing a hat was the symbol of the British elites. Today, hats have been widely accepted as men’s accessories for casual summer outings. However, avoid going for woolen or synthetic materials as they will make you feel hot and lead to immense sweating in the hair.

7. Fine ties :

Nothing complements a suit better than a trademark tie. It not only finishes the look with touches of finesse but elevates your formal look by leaps and bounds. So if your profession demands you to be in formal attire, owning a pair or two of ties is surely worth.

8. Funky bracelets :

Bracelets add that much-required masculinity to your wrist. They look lovely and pretty good, as long as you follow the golden rule: less accessorizing is always more. If you want to add a little more elegance to your wrist, wear the watch and the bracelet simultaneously.

Tips For Choosing Athletic Shoes

May 17th, 2018

Among the various exercise for men, running and walking are among the purest, most natural forms of exercise. Choosing wrong athletic shoes could lead to various problems including aching heels. You should enjoy your running, and shoes must be your best partners in your spirit. We tell you how to choose the best footwear.

1. Remember you need to have separate shoes for running. Walking shoes have a hard sole and are hence thicker and stiff while running shoes are flexible. It is advised not to have multi-tasking shows that suffice all your purposes.

2. You should look for the design of your foot through your footprints, before deciding on the model of the footwear. Remember everyone’s foot shape differs, what is offered to you in the shop is a standard design. You may have a large narrow connection between the forefoot and heel indicating that you should look for a cushioned shoe with a soft midsole. Else if you have a side portion ‘a neutral arch’ a distinct curve, then prefer to have the right mix of cushioning and support.

3. Sizes vary between the brands, you should definitely measure your feet size, before ordering online. One size does not fit all, your comfort factor might be very different from others who are also ordering online. If you are really serious about your health and your sports, you should not do what others are doing.

4. You should measure the size of the feet toward the end of the day. Feet expand while you run or walk, so you should ideally choose your shoes in the evenings or after the suggested gym workouts for men when they are the largest.

5. When you have finalized the design and the type of shoes based on your foot shape, you should ensure that there is at least 3/8-1/2-inch space between the front of your big toe and the end of the shoe. The heel portion of the shoe should fit relatively tightly while the upper part of the shoe should not be compact, your toes should not feel compressed.

Must-have Yoga essentials

June 20th, 2017

Yoga has been the part of our culture since ages. There was a time when people used to practice yoga sitting under a tree, using the available natural resources such as floor instead of a yoga mat, big stones/rocks in place of a yoga block. But now, things are different. Yoga, like many other industries, has tonnes of options to choose from when it comes to supplies and equipment. Let’s explore some must-have yoga essentials that will help you perform the exercises with ease:

Must-have Yoga essentials

 

1. Yoga Mat :

The first most important piece of equipment is the yoga mat. Normally, your gym or yoga studio do have spare yoga mats, but it is a better idea to invest in your own mat. It is more hygienic and convenient because then, you can carry it anywhere and use it anytime. Invest in a good quality mat and carry it on your vacation too!

2. Yoga Bag :

Now that you own a yoga mat, how do you think you will carry it around? Obviously, a yoga bag is most suited for a yogi. Mats come in various lengths and widths, which is why a stylish yoga bag is your most practical solution.

3. Mat Towel/Towel :

Yoga is a peaceful way to stretch, but you end up sweating quite a bit during your practice. The mat is made of fabric that is easy to slip on. And you don’t want sweat to trickle into your eyes as you try to balance yourself upside down. You can either invest in a full-sized yoga mat towel that will absorb all the extra sweat or get a small hand towel. Depending on the intensity of your practice, you can choose a good quality yoga towel.

4. Fitness Wear :

Clothing is an important aspect to consider when you are working out. Fitness wear clothes are best as they are specifically designed to be airy and comfortable yet fitting enough to allow the body to move with ease. Shorts that are too loose may expose more than what the eye should see, and shirts that are ill-fitting often ride up breaking your concentration. Tank tops with a pair of Mojo Shorts offer a full range of movements, and look good after the practice too!

5. Yoga Block :

The yoga block is a prop that should always be a part of your practice, as you gradually move to more complex poses. It is best to invest in your own block to comfortably expand your range of motions without any hassle. These blocks help to make an asana attainable and ultimately more enjoyable.

Buying yoga essentials does not need to be an overwhelming process. The main point is that you have to enjoy your yoga practice. These essentials are just a small medium to help you create a connection between your mind, body, and soul.
