Choosing accessories for men

Men fashion ranges from subtle to eccentric style. Wearing accessories can achieve both looks, and it is important to add details for the overall appearance.

Debunking the myth

man purse 213Men accessories used to be limited only to belt, watch, or sunglasses. Necklace, ring, or men purse were once too eccentric to wear, unless for professional artists or celebs. But today the perspective has changed. A hand-carry purse for men is available in the market and looks nice to pair with formal wear.

 

 

 

Accessories for formal wear

Starting from the upper-body accessories, typically tie, and the tie-bar, clip, and pin are the must-have. But if you wear earrings and have long hair, you need to pay attention to the color of your hairband and earrings.

Use non-eccentric color earrings, like white or black. It is better to have medical grade polymer earrings to prevent skin irritation or allergic reaction. You do not want your accessory causing your discomfort, especially when meeting your boss.

Hair-band should follow the same rule. Your bold look comes from your hair, and do not put colored hair band because it can distract the primary focus. Getting your hair tied is very important in a formal situation. It says that you are confident to be different, but is still willing to co-operate and obey the rules.

Bracelet-092Replace your watch with bracelets. Men bracelets with silver color, white, or black is safe to wear to the office. Watch has become boring this day, especially if you are a practical man and notice how often it is for us to check the time more on our phone rather than on our watch.

If you want to maintain the formal hipster-look with your man-bun and beard, choose wrist-wear with wood element. A bracelet that has beads or other exotic materials with low-profile design and color can highlight your unique personality.

Accessories for informal wear

For informal wear, accessories are easier to choose. Colorful bracelets are okay to wear, but it would be better if you have a story for the bracelet. Use your bracelet as a memento of your last adventure. Ocean-themed accessories for your holiday to Hawai, or white-icy rope bracelet for your scaling at Mt. Everest.

For your jeans, wallet chains will work. Just be wise when choosing the size and the length, and to match it with your wallet. Some wallets are vintage design and definitely not to wear with chains, while some others, like biker’s wallet, do look cool with chains.

A scarf can be an accessory too, but make sure it suits the weather. Looking eccentric is alright, but wearing a scarf while the common temperature is 80 °F can give the impression that you are ignorant of the real function of the scarf.

How to handle sudden wealth

Sudden wealth syndrome is a syndrome that troubles people who receive a substantial financial windfall like a lottery win, inheritance, or lawsuit settlement. As riches increase, many individuals usually experience a lot of stress which quickly turns them into highly emotional and irrational people that leads to the paranoia of those around them and overspending. Poor decisions are often made while they are in this state of paranoia and irrationality which leads to financial and familial ruin. Here are tips that can help you handle instant wealth and make long-term plans with your money.

Managing debt

You need to act judging from the newly found wealth amount when managing debt. Make your credit card debt your priority, but do not clear it all at once if it is going to eat up all your money. You need to save some money for an emergency. Choose those loans and credit cards with the highest interest loans.financeleftasdfghjkl

Take time to relax

Pause for six or ten months to get used to the shock of money and understand fully the possibilities and limits of your newly found wealth. It is not uncommon to overestimate it. Certificates of deposit can be a safe way to leave the money until you can handle it.

Keep it to yourself

Keep to yourself for the longest time the fact that you just became wealthy. You might become a target if you begin bragging and telling everyone about your newfound money. Your family or friends may ask to participate in dealings you do not want or should not get involved. Family members or other friends may start to treat you differently or become envious. The worst of it all is to have criminals or scam artists going after you.

Future investment

financerightdfghjmk,Such windfalls do not often come, so it is important that you invest in your future. It may be a lifetime chance to safeguard your future. You may want to consider some long-term goals like educating yourself or children or saving for a retirement. You may need the expertise of a financial professional to help you with the creation of an investment strategy.

It might seem like a great excuse to live a comfortable life when you come into a huge sum of money, but you cannot deny that bigger problems and responsibilities come with more money. You can easily cope with the pressure that comes with sudden wealth if you make an effort to be responsible and educate yourself on the significance of financial matters.

Choosing the best leather jackets for men

A fashionable and stylish leather jacket will be a part of your wardrobe if you are the kind of man that loves dressing. A beautiful leather jacket can dramatically change your appearance. It can brighten a simple t-shirt hence take your look from dull to dazzling. Although, you need to be careful when choosing leather jackets to make the right choice. An appropriate choice can make you look stunning while an inappropriate choice can ruin your looks. Therefore, it is a necessity and not an option to choose the right and the best leather jacket.

It can be a tedious task to choose the right leather jacket if you have no idea on how to go about it. Whether you are buying for someone or yourself, you should have a few things in mind. Here are a few aspects to consider.

Fit

Leather jackets are available in different fits. Some can add to your big appearance while others can make you look thinner and slimmer. It is therefore important that you select the right fit. Biker jackets are the best for tall men whereas bomber-style jackets are best for men with broad shoulders and straight-cut jackets will be the perfect choice for those on the heavier side.fashionrightgfsdhfgk

Trials

Before you purchase a jacket for yourself, it is important that you try it out first. Trying out will help you in choosing the right jacket without confusion.

 

Length of sleeve

These jackets come in different sleeve lengths. While you finalize your choice, ensure that you go for a sleeve length that is perfect. Opt for a sleeve length that is in tandem with the line of your wrist. If it is ending before or is exceeding your wrist line, then you have chosen the wrong item.

Color

fashionleftafsgdhfjgkBuyers always get confused when it comes to choosing the color they want. You should always pick a color that complements your skin tone. If simple fashion is what you like, go for a conventional color. Also, you can go for vibrant colors or pop shades if you would like to add a little funk to your style.

Always try to buy from the leading and reputable sellers no matter the purpose. They are always present you with a variety of options.…

Some Songs: An Elliott Smith Live Music Resource

Today in the mail I recieved my copy of the Future Soundtrack for America. The official release date for this compilation album is the 17th, however donors to MoveOn.org were given the chance to recieve a copy early. The compilation is full of songs by some great artists, including Elliott Smith’s A Distorted Reality is Now a Necessity To Be Free. The version of this song is different from the one which appears on the Pretty (Ugly Before) 7″.

You can pre-order this disc from Amazon.com (just the cd, or with a companion ‘progressive’ book). However, if I were you I’d just wait and buy it from the record label, Barsuk from its shop. Support indie labels and rage against the machine. 😉

Site News – 08/09/04
Some slight modifications to the music database have been made. The link on the date of the show at right leads to the setlist and notes information that is on the music page, and a link to the torrent file is now in brackets as suggested on our message board. The Music page will soon have that information in a sortable way to ease the finding of currently available shows.

Coincidentally, all of those shows are available to be burned to CD and mailed to you if you do not want to wait for them to be offered as downloads. Email me if you’d like more info.

Random Update – 08/07/04
Just one thing that I forgot to mention yesterday. If you’d like a copy of the show and don’t have a fast connection, email me and I’ll give you the info you need.

Site Launch – 08/06/04
Welcome to Some Songs, a new source for live recordings of Elliott Smith as well as discography information, and hopefully much more.

My goal with this site is to spread the best quality sourced shows I can find. I hope to get in contact with anyone who ever taped an Elliott Smith show and get copies directly from them in the hopes of insuring that we don’t end up with a lot of scratchy high generation high error shows being circulated. Due to bandwidth constraints, all the shows will not be available at once. Instead, shows will be available via Bit Torrent downloads. Bit torrent downloads require you to install one tiny program. Once you have the program installed, as you download a show from this site, you will also be sending the show to others who want it. This allows me to host more shows on my site than I otherwise would be able to. A quick and easy explanation of how Bit Torrent works can be found here. If you’d really like to read a detailed explaination, one may be read here. The program is open source and spyware free. If you do not have a fast internet connection, I will be more than willing to mail you the shows, providing you send me an extra envelope, blank cds, and stamps so that I don’t have to spend an arm and a leg sending them all back. 🙂

Many many thanks to Elliott Smith’s mother and father for their permission to share these live recordings with you.

Hopefully in the coming weeks I will get the Heatmiser section of the site online. I’ve been in the process of gathering information on the band, finding out the current whereabouts of its members and what not as sadly the last Heatmiser fan page disapeared a few weeks ago.

Most of the site is complete, but there are a few things missing (it became a rush to complete what I could by the self imposed deadline of Elliott’s birthday). There are currently about 15-20 songs currently missing lyrics (most notably the entire album Dead Air), however there are ~125 songs with lyrics, so I suppose 90% is good, right? 😉 The live music database needs to …
