NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION – CHANGE
Monday, October 15th, 2018 | Author:

This week’s quick-read post, inspired by the new year, it is simply about ‘Change’. There is no use reading about HOW to up your style game if you don’t actually DO it. Knowledge is only the potential of results.

“An educated man is not one who knows a lot. An educated man is one who ACTS on what he knows” (this is from a really good self-development book that I can’t remember the name of).

Follow our 10 tips and change the way you look and feel for the better. Feel free to post your comments and add your own tips on positive change. Here goes. No looking back now!

  1. Join the Gym – And stick to it.  Clothes will ALWAYS look better with a fitter body. No extremities though. We don’t want you ending up looking this. Get a yearly plan worked out with a fitness instructor.
  2. Try out a new piece of clothing – You never know, it may look good! That could be a colour, an accessory or a particular style. We grow by making mistakes and learning from them. Let’s not be drones!
  3. Ask – If someone has something on that you like, ASK them where they got it from. You’ll be surprised how many times people appreciate the compliment and will willingly tell you (though if they say abroad, they’re usually lying.)
  4. Join a Forum – and tell them what you want to know. It’s all about the wisdom of crowds, collective knowledge is strong, mighty mouse strong.  There you can ask us where to get something or even how good or bad something looks.
  5. Try out a new store – Simply walk into a shop that you have never visited before. Again, it’s about stepping out of your comfort zone, but that’s the beauty of it. You never know what you may find in a new store. Sticking to the same old shops will keep you in line like sheep alongside everyone else. Be a leader not a follower!
  6. Look for colour combinations in advertising – Adverts are designed by graphic designers. Most of the time they have a great understanding of colours and the psychology behind them. Check out how certain colours work with each other on logos, billboards etc, and figure out if you can pull it off in an outfit.
  7. Don’t just wear black – Too many guys resort to wearing black all the time when they go out because the think it looks slick. But, if everyone in the club is wearing black it’s NOT slick! Next time you reach for the black shirt or top, think about what else you could wear. Add some colour and personality to your look.
  8. Visit a vintage store – For those of you who do, it’s a great thing. For a lot of people, it’s a place that reminds them of piss-smelling, second-hand clothes. But, contrary to popular belief, it’s a place filled with unique pieces. Even if you have a problem wearing used clothes, then at least pay a visit and pick up an accessory- something like a tie. It will never touch your body, you posh wannabes! Most also have a fantastic selection of eyewear that is far, far cooler than the identikit RayBan or Tom Ford sunglasses you see everywhere today.
  9. Give a piece of clothing you never wear to a charity store – We do it as often as we can. It may be those trainers that you feel you can wear one last time. Well it had its last time three years ago, it’s time to let go! There are loads of people out there that would benefit from what you never wear, so share.
  10. Spread the love – It would be greatly appreciated if you could spread the word about our blog. The more people we can help, the better it is for everyone. Our mission is to change the face of British men’s style, and it begins with you guys, help us out lads! You know you want to.

Change my people, change. No doubts please. Yes You Can!

How to Choosea Door Gift
Thursday, April 19th, 2018 | Author:

Door gifts usually make an event more exciting when used in the right manner. They are gifts which are won through drawing or raffle by those people who are going to attend your event. In most cases they are just simple presents like notepads, pens or bookmarks. Sometimes they can be large like gift baskets, televisions, cash or tickets to concerts among others.

Whichever the kind of gift you are going to choose, everyone is likely to get excited of winning it no matter how small it is. They can also be promotional in nature when you go to the extent of having the logo of your business engraved on them. Contact information can also be included with these.

There are different gifts that one can choose from. Pens may be simple to use though you may choose to go an extra mile and use something else and at the same time still save on expenses. A good option would be things for use at home or the kitchen. They are nice presents, but not costly. Such include knife sets, wine accessories, aprons, knives etc.

Bathroom accessories and towels also make good presents. Another option would be office presents as they do not cost that much as well. They could be desk sets, book ends, books or even calendars. However, they all need to be things that have some space for making imprints.

In most cases a door gift usually aims at events. Concert tickets, movie tickets, rental gift cards, basketball games among others will definitely cause a smile on the face of the winner. They can be acquired at a discount if bought in large amounts thus reducing the expenditure. Other alternatives include movie rental gift cards and sporting event tickets.

Gift baskets are also a good option to go for. They can therefore be filled with food gifts such as cheese, wine, baking mixes, coffee, fruits, and treats. Other great food gifts are things like gift certificates to caterings or restaurants. If intending to spend less, you may choose to buy baked goods as they are always cheap.

Promotional door gifts are great if used in your marketing strategies, though you need to ensure that the designs chosen are effective. Make sure that the gift you choose can easily be imprinted and the information visible. Because they will be carried to different places, your company products will be advertised in a wider area.
