Be Affordable with Leather

Leather is derived from the hides of animals like cows, sheep, goats which normally are the domesticated ones. The hides undergo a series of process under rigid conditions which help the raw hide in becoming a strong one enough to protect you from the outside.

Leather production dates back to the days of roman military times when soldiers were provided with shoes of tough leather to stand against the enemies in difficult and testing conditions. They proved to be a great boon to them. Leather shoes remained tough on desert conditions. Ancient time soldier was also equipped with leather pouches for carrying daggers and other war ammunitions. Belt was also made of pure leather.

Leather has been a great product in any which way and the poor man as well loved it.

Though I’m personally opposed to the brutal killings of animals, I really love leather products.

About Leather Belts

Since leather is animal skin, it consists of fibers that are liable to break if not lubricated regularly. If the fibers become dry then they tend to break or crack that would be visible on the belt. Hence, leather belts need to be lightly coated with leather dressing at least half yearly to maintain their durability and appearance.

Leather belts are susceptible to oxidation if not properly taken care of. Oxidation would result in the cracking or breaking of the belt surface due to dryness. Regular leather dressing would be able to put a stop to this problem. Also, leather belts are prone to oxidation if stored and not regularly lubricated with the dressing.

Ultraviolet rays in sunlight, ozone, and other pollutants in the atmosphere can also cause leather to deteriorate faster.

3. The sole of the sandal should be rigid and not flex in the middle. If you can take your sandal and fold it in half, then it is too flexible and it will not offer enough support.

4. Keep in mind that many sandals are not made for walking, but designed purely for style. Owning one pair of sandals for walking and one pair for sitting at the beach or at a BBQ may be a good idea.

Different Styles of Fine Mens Wallets

The Tri-fold Wallet

This time, the wallet is divided into three parts and thus, tends to be a little bit bulkier. This is also a good choice for travelling since it can give you even more room for credit cards and ID’s to stash into. Aside from that, the wallet style also allows you to carry around a good amount of bills. But the downside to tri-fold mens wallets is that the three wallet folds may not give you instant and direct access to all your cash and cards as easily as the bi-fold style.

The Credit Card Holders

This kind of wallet is a very simple and relatively smaller pouch that is designed to do one thing, which is to store your credit cards and ID’s. When placed in one and the same wallet, cards can be very vulnerable to scratch and damage. And hence, a separate holder will solve all that. Aside from that, this mens wallet can also keep your wallet thinner and easier to carry around. And finally, it is always safer to keep both important possessions at separate holders so in the event of losing your wallet, you can spare

Fancy Dress

Nowadays Spiderman oufits have web shooting attachments and advanced muscle definition and, for all I know, are made from space age materials, a far cry from the all in one nylon catsuit style of my youth.

Recent films such as the Lord of the Rings and the culmination of the preposterous Star Wars Trilogy (something else that was definitely much better when I was a kid) have led to a massive upsurge in the number of costumes available and the demand for them. And interestingly this demand is being led as much by adults as children.

Fancy dress shops are booming and online searches for fancy dress top 10,000 daily. Wigs, accessories and masks are among the top sellers as well as period fancy dress.

For example 70s fancy dress is a massive market, influenced no doubt by the many 70s nights that people go to at various tacky, sticky-carpeted discos throughout the UK. Although why anyone thinks that wearing an afro wig and flares will disguise their obvious ugliness and lack of style is beyone me. Also the afro wig makes you sweat heavily in a hot and busy nightclub…. So I was told

Leotard Etiquette

First in leotard etiquette is that you can wear a leotard if you are appearing on stage. If you are dancing, in a ballet, part of an opera, or doing performance art, you can wear a leotard and you will be fine. If you are a rock star, you can wear a leotard in only a couple of situations: if you are a woman or if you are an 80’s hair band lead man (see Poison, Twisted Sister, or Abba). A basic rule of thumb, though, is that if you are on stage performing, you can get away with a leotard.

Secondly, when it comes to leotard etiquette, keep in mind that a leotard is never okay if you are severely overweight or obese. When little is left to the imagination, you can end up painting a picture nobody wants. If you are a man, this goes double as you are put on display at a level that is beyond description. In fact, when the leotard actually debuted in the 19th century on a French trapeze artist, it is said that many came to see the outfit and what it displayed more than the act itself.
