You find a variety of men on the style spectrum. Some are more with the program, while others are… less aware of how far a great sense of style can take you. You will notice, however, that stylish men often have a lot in common. They understand the rules of the game, and, whereas, they may differ in some of the finer aspects of their style, you will find that all of men of style subscribe to, and live by the same style habits. Let’s break this down.

1. Fit is the Key

Stylish men wear clothes that fit. No man looks good in a baggy T-shirt or a boxy, ill-fitting suit. Working your clothes to complement your body type, and attenuating your weaknesses while simultaneously accentuating your physical strengths, is a science. Wearing clothes that fit isn’t synonymous to wearing clothes that are fitted. Wearing skin-tight shirts, even if your physique is something to be proud of, is still a huge no-no, because it simply doesn’t look elegant. It looks like you’re trying too hard to get attention. Wearing clothes that look that they were made for you, on the other hand, sends off all the right signals.

2. They Understand that Less is More

Be wary about going over the top. Simplicity is the name of the game. It’s like the old Nokia ad – simply elegant and elegantly simple. Take T-shirts, for instance. You’ll never find well-dressed men like George Clooney or David Beckham wearing Ts with abstract slogans or too much going on. Nah, it’s always solid (well-fitting) crews or Vs in black, white or grey. The same goes for everything. For jeans, stick to a zero ‘bling’ policy. Excessive distressing takes away from the elegance of your outfit, too.

3. They Build their Wardrobes

They build their wardrobes around timeless classics and then inject that with their own personality. Stick the basics. You can never go wrong with tried and tested style essentials like black and white V-neck T-shirts, dark, well-fitting denim and tailored white dress-shirts. Make sure these fail-proof items are in your wardrobe, and then experiment a bit. It’s essential that you understand the rules of the game. Understand what looks good and what doesn’t, and then, once you’ve mastered the basics, you can up-grade your style and go for some nice personality quirks. For instance, make sure you have (and know how to wear) polo shirts in white, black and navy blue before branching off in to some experimental colors like hot pink and neon orange.

4. Stylish Men Make a Style Statement

Stylish men make a statement through the elegance and simple intelligence of their style, not through gang symbols on their jeans or provocative slogans. Your style should out a message – you have an eye for aesthetics, you’re anything but sloppy, and you mean business.

5. Stylish Men Coordinate their Outfits

Black leather shoes match black belt and brown shoes match brown belt. Once you internalize the rules of color coordination, you can bring it up a notch. Exceptionally oriented men can be seen matching their ties to their shoes, for instance.

Stylish men are not afraid to overdress. They know the unspoken dress code of the event they’re going to, and they take it notch higher.

Style is a lot about what you wear, but even it’s even more about how you wear it. Whatever you put on in the morning, wear it with confidence. Be comfortable in your clothing and wear it like you mean.

By and large, we know you’re doing well. Your style game is strong. You’ve picked up a lot, and you’re making a lot of progress. But there’s always room for improvement. Here are a few common men’s fashion blunders that many of us still consciously make that are sabotaging our style and image

Men’s Fashion Blunder 1: Wearing Clothes that are Too Baggy

Men's Fashion Mistake 1: Wearing Clothes that are Too Baggy

Billowy cargo pants and shapeless t-shirts went out of style two millennia ago. Scratch that, they were NEVER in style. Ill-fitting clothes do not look good. Period. How do you know, if the sleeves billow around your arms, or if the pants pool around your shoes, then know you it’s either time to meet your tailor for adjustments, or get a new wardrobe. There’s a style pro-tip back there for those reading carefully. Getting your clothes altered (i.e., getting your pants tapered or darts in your dress shirt) is a cost effective way of making your current wardrobe super snazzy without busting the bank on all the brand new well-fitting clothes you want.

Men’s Fashion Blunder 2: Wearing Clothes that are Too Tight

Men's Fashion Mistake 2: Wearing-Clothes-that-are-Too-Tight

This is simply just gross. It’s not appealing, unless you have the physique of a Greek god. Well-crafted T-shirts are snug around the shoulders and chest, but have a nice fall over your midriff. They don’t stick skin-tight to your belly. Nailing the fit with pants is important. If it’s too tight around your privates, you run the risk of cutting off circulation in that region which can have negative ramifications.

Men’s Fashion Blunder 3: Overdoing It

Men's Fashion Mistake 3: Overdoing It

Too many guys think they’re being daring by wearing loud shoes, loud pants AND a loud shirt. We say there’s nothing wrong with being daring, just do it intelligently. If your shirt is an In-Your-Face color, like neon, orange or hot pink, make sure you balance it out with pants that are more stable, more classic hues.

Men’s Fashion Blunder 4:Failing to Match Your Leather

Men's Fashion Mistake 4: Failing to Match Your Leather

One of the first rules of fashion is that you need to match your leathers. Shoe color needs to match belt color needs to match watch-strap color provided all of the above are leather. Too many guys out there think they look good if they have a fantastic pair of tan loafers with a fantastic black belt. WRONG. Coordination is key; it adds sophistication and dimensionality to your outfit.

Popping up the collar of your polo shirt does not look good. Seriously. You look like either a douche or a sixth-grader.

Men’s Fashion Blunder 5: Wearing Sunglasses Indoor

Men's Fashion Mistake 5: Wearing Sunglasses Indoor

Every guy needs a pair of dashing shades, but knowing how and when to wear them is even more important. Wearing sunglasses inside does not make you look stylish, it makes you look like you’re trying too hard.

Men’s Fashion Blunder 6: Wearing Bathroom Slippers with an Otherwise Well Put-Together Outfit

Men's Fashion Mistake 6: Wearing Bathroom Slippers with an Otherwise Well Put-Together Outfit

We’ve all seen that guy who looks like a boss from head to t—ohh wait! You just noticed his disheveled slippers. This is the equivalent of the guy who is about to win the 5K race but stops 10m short and gives up. Don’t be that guy.

Men’s Fashion Blunder 7: Wearing Ratty T-Shirts

Men's Fashion Mistake 8: Wearing Ratty T-Shirts

Not all T-shirts were created equal. You’ll never see David Beckham in a baggy T that says, “I’m with stupid à”. Nope. It’s always a well-crafted shirt in a solid, classy color like black, white, navy blue or grey.

‘A faux pas’ literally means an embarrassing mistake. So our final point for you is to not be ashamed of dressing well. Dress for the occasion, but don’t feel ashamed if you’re the best dressed guy in the room. Nothing ruins a great outfit like a lack of confidence in that outfit.

Easy Ways to be a Healthier Man Right Now!

This article centers on what you should be doing to be the healthiest man you know. People often make the mistake of thinking that health is about physical fitness and what you eat. Whereas, that is a major component of health, we’ll be talking about health in the general sense; emotional and mental well-being included. Having a healthy, well balanced life is the key to being the man you can be. It’s pivotal to being able to provide, being able to produce and being able to compete in life. Let’s get right into it.

Spend time on healthy hobbies. No, we’re not talking about video games. We’re talking about taking out time from your stressful, hectic schedule to chase healthy passions. Get involved in a sport, it doesn’t matter how old you are, find like-minded individuals and join a club or a team. Why is this important? Because chasing your passions and investing time in a hobby that you deeply enjoy is one of the healthiest things you can do. It’s about ‘me-time’. Taking out time for yourself can help you relax, destress and bring your cortisol levels down. Let’s talk about another healthy habit that has nothing to do with ‘me-time’. Spending time with your family is one of life’s greatest pleasure. Children, siblings, parents, uncles or aunts, it doesn’t really matter. Get in the habit of spending more time with the people who matter to you. It’ll pay off in both the short, and long term.

So, we’ve talked about some Crucial tips for mental health. Let’s get a bit more technical. Get to know your doctor. It’s imperative that you have an open, comfortable relationship with your physician. You should be able to talk to them about anything, sexual dysfunction, psychiatric problems, anything. Your doctor knows more about illnesses, and how to catch them early on, than you. But you know your body better. The way to make that relationship work is to let your doctor in on what’s happening inside. One thing you want to watch out for as you hit your forties and fifties is prostate enlargement, symptomized by the urge to urinate in the middle of the night and difficulty initiating urine.

We’d be remiss without tracking diet and exercise. It would be a wise decision to leave behind what dieticians call ‘white foods’, and of course we’re talking about white bread, white flour, white rice and the rest. All it’ll do is bring your up your blood sugar level and contribute to unwanted belly fat. It’s carbs without the nutrients, because most of the fiber has been ‘refined’ out of it. Adopt a paradigm of nutrient based Nutrition over calorie based nutrition. What we mean is, look for foods rich in nutrients as supposed to just chomping down whatever will fill your belly. And drop the trans-fats. These are found in most deep-friend dishes, and anything, really, that contains hydrogenated oils and they are a major cause of heart disease. Consider downing a multivitamin every night to get the nutrients you’re missing in your diet.

Gentlemen, there’s a reason that women have an average life expectancy seven years longer than us. We, men, need to start making choices about our health and get proactive about looking after our body and soul. Make the decision to be proactive, today. Find More : health and fitness Tips
