Finding the perfect leather jacket

4 Sep

So here it goes, when it comes to leather jackets YOU MUST READ very carefully to the importance of fit, style and what and when to wear a leather jacket. I’m not going to go through all the awful leather jacket choices that people mistakenly make. But what I will tell you is how important the right jacket is, you don’t want to look like this guy!

 Leather jackets come in all different lengths, fits and colours. If you’re looking for a basic everyday casual jacket, I recommend sticking with black or dark brown. Look for a basic cut not really going with the seasons trend, keeping in mind you will have this jacket forever, so as little detail as possible ( meaning 3 pockets or less).  Choose a short to medium length based on your height and preference. 

 

remember that you don’t want it to be skin-tight because you might wear a thick wool sweater or have multiple layers on. Make sure the leather is not to shiny and is good quality leather (synthetic) Choosing the right type of leather is also based on preference; soft hand like lamb skin, calfskin, cowhide, buckskin.

One question I would like to clear with all you men out there. NEVER wear a short leather jacket with a business suit. It just doesn’t go together.  The most appropriate length must be longer than your belt line but not down to your ankles.

“What not to wear!”

24 Aug

What not to wear on a first date, or second…or third!!! ED HARDY
It’s so overly played out that seeing guys wear it is just tacky. If you want to impress a girl, show that you have a sense of style by putting together a nice outfit. Impress her even more by opening doors, being on time, pulling out her chair.
Brands also to avoid: Tap out, affliction, anything with lame sayings, or pictures of anything in appropriate.

Sky Mall Shopping

25 Jul

After 8 planes in a matter of 2 weeks, I took notice to a little catalog called SkyMall this on board shopping can handy yet very dangerous especially in long haul flights. SkyMall offers a wide variety of gadgets most of which are less than useful but amongst all the crap I came across a few things that caught my attention.

Stainless steel wallet – Woven using 25,000 flexible stainless-steel threads that are three times thinner than a piece of paper, that feels as smooth as silk and has the same strength that far surpasses leather. Resistant to corrosive materials such as salts, acids, and seawater, the tightly woven steel also passively resists radio-frequency hacking–the latest identity theft technique that attempts to scan newer credit cards.

Rolling carry-on/laptop bag –  Made with a padded compartment for a laptop and top-grain cowhide leather, the outer pocket has a removable, high-density foam sleeve that holds a 15″ laptop, protecting the device from traveling.

How it works order SkyMall uses the latest technology to ensure safe transmission of your credit card information. For fastest delivery, products are shipped to you from each individual catalog merchant. Delivery times may vary, but most items will be delivered within 7 to 10 business days. Rush and Next Day delivery is available for many items; additional charges apply.

Aquabell Set – Don’t laugh but this can come in handy for the active traveller who won’t have to worry if there hotel does not have a gym. Simply add water to expand the weights up to 4 lbs. capacity and then empty them within seconds when it’s time to pack for home.

Top 10 things to do in LA

25 Jul

 

1. Visit Universal Studios

2. Drive along the famous Pacific Coast Highway

3. SHOP – Fashion Island Mall, South Coastal Plaza, Robertson Blvd, Rodeo drive, Melrose ave.

4. Walk the Hollywood Walk of Fame (during the day, night time can be a little iffy)

5. Head to the beach – Newport Beach, Laguna Beach.  Huntington Beach, Malibu and of course Venice Beach

6. Dress like your from there – This includes nothing but a pair of flip flops and swim trunks. Now don’t take me literally that i mean when your walking on the beach. Otherwise dress how you would normally without looking like your trying  to fit in.  

7.  Go see a baseball, football or basketball game… california has sooo many sport teams to choose from.

8. Quicksilver and Billabong offer morning, day-long, week-long surf lessons. Learn the basics of surfing.

9.  Check out Sunset Strip for some of the hottest nightlife spots, a-list hotels and rock ‘n’ roll landmarks.

10. Eat, Dance, Drink and have fun

If your only staying for a short while I recommend flying into the John Wayne Aiport, its easier to get in and out of than LAX. Hotels in the area are great if your not looking for an ocean or city view. Renting a car is easy and most of the hotels in the area offer free shuttle service.
