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.

How to wear plaid

3 Sep

Now that fall is rearing its ugly head around the corner, stores and designers are continuing with plaid prints. Plaid in my opinion looks great on both men and women, that is with the RIGHT print.  Plais is trendy and hip and BONUS very comfortable to wear but there are a couple of things to keep in mind.

NEVER wear plaid on plaid, its not cool and its definitely not trendy.

Never wear a plaid shirt that looks like a farmer wore it for years.

Never wear plaid that came from your family’s tartan and in the form of a kilt.

How to wear plaid – It should be worn with denim or black  pants. Layering plaid with a sweater or cardigan gives a more polished looked adding a vest or jacket also keeps the print not looking to over bearring. To help update your  look for this fall check out some of these looks for inspiration.

IPHONE APP MORE EXPENSIVE THEN THE PHONE???

26 Aug

After a $900 video surveillance app led the iPhone App Store’s most expensive apps for months, it has been topped. The new most expensive app is a $1,000 study guide for lawyers called BarMax CA, designed to help lawyers pass the California bar exam.
There’s a new most expensive iPhone app!

Why charge so much?

Like all the other “most expensive” apps, for the people who are buying the app, it’s actually a relatively small cost. Passing the bar exam could lead to a law career that generates millions (or tens of millions) of dollars in salary over a couple decades. So $1,000 is a relatively low cost for a study guide.
