Clothes That Send a Message

Fashion Comments Off on Clothes That Send a Message

Human beings do not clothe themselves merely for warmth, modesty and protection. The wearing of particular types of clothing are indicative of status, role and mood. The priest donnes his robes and his masculinity is hidden away. The policeman or woman is attired in an outfit bristling with aggressive tendencies; soldiers of the fascist state. A nurse is garbed in officious white; cleanliness and no nonsense behaviours are visibly communicated. Uniforms are clothes that send a message to the world around the wearer. Their message is more general and less individual.

Clothes That Send a Message

Fashion is another statement again, perhaps, a more individual declaration of the wearer’s intent. Of course, there are those that set fashions, and many more who follow them. Fashion can be a way of belonging for the young and undecided. The teenager will try to be part of this group or that. The Goth who is clad in black. The middle class white kid who dresses, as if he lives in the ghetto. The myriad of urban tribes who attire themselves in their special colours. Clothing can mask our essential and universal humanity. Can you see beyond the things that people wear?

Promotional clothing can endorse a product or a brand. Fans can wear the names and images of their favourite celebrity or sporting team. There are human beings, mainly male, who always sport the jersey of their football team or some item of sporting memorabilia. Their clothing choice sends the message that they long to live in the realm of sporting glory. They proudly wear the colours of their team. Life is lived in the shadow of some past achievement by these heroes of Olympus. Hercules, Achilles and Perseus. Ronaldinho, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi. Serena Williams, Wozniacki and Sharapova.

Do you dress to send a message? What are your clothes saying to your friends, family and the world? Are you aware of the science of body language and communication by visible means? Fashion is a means of making a statement, without uttering a word. The sexual message is rung loudly on society’s stage. Mate with me, procreate and make the ultimate creative statement. Clothes that accentuate reproductive regions of the body. The iconography of human sex. Bodies clothed in skins become bodies attired in silk and stretchy fabrics. The human form adorned in suggestive styles of fashion walking on the catwalk of never ending time.

Real Men Wear Linen & Sleep with It Too

Shopping Comments Off on Real Men Wear Linen & Sleep with It Too

The popularity of modern suits only started in the late 19th century. During that time, morning and frock coats are the trend in men’s fashion. Because of the price and the weight of the early lounge suits, the society wasn’t too quickly to adapt to the modern designs of suits. Since the late 19th century textile is not that cheap, tailors use flannel and worsteds as their basic material, which are heavy and too warm.

The best alternative for the aforementioned fabrics was linen. French linen suits do not quickly fade, are light, and provide a cooling sensation, especially during summer months. Due to these advantages, linen suits became the favoured and clothing staple for the men.

If you are going to buy pure linen, you will notice that they are available in grey, ivory or tan, which are their natural colors. It is only with heavy bleaching that white linen fibers are produced. Wearing a white linen suit signifies wealth and achievements. That’s why aristocratic men prefer white as the color of their suits. This is the trend up until World War I. It was only in the 1960s when white linen suits became a fashion style, especially during spring and summer months.

Today, white linen suits are good if you are aiming for that vintage appeal. To achieve a casual or elegant look, linen suits in blue, light or pastel colors are the norm. There are also available linen suits in gingham pattern. Moreover, you can mix and match a linen suit jacket with jeans or a linen trouser with a white shirt.

Linen fabric is also used in luxury bedwares. Because of the textile’s absorbency, coolness, longevity and resilience, linen bedware is a symbol of opulence. In fact, it is commonly used by posh hotels in their bedroom accommodations. But did you know that the earliest bed sheets were made of linen?

Long before linen bedware epitomizes luxury, linen is used in bed sheets because this textile gets softer after multiple use. The use of linen fabric in beddings is so widespread that today’s term for bed linens or beddings is linen.

Marcus Tullius Cicero cut a fine togated figure declaiming to the jury and courtroom audience. The swish of fabric folds over the shoulder was as important as the oratorical skill of the advocate. Judges and jury members are watching the performance of the lawyer, as much as they are listening to what he has to say. I say he, because this a gentleman’s wardrobe article and concerns the big swinging legal dicks in our midst.

Suits to Sue In: Knock’em Dead

Today, it is Saville Row and Zegna suits, that bespeak the bespoke message. Our barrister is de rigueur in his dark threads with dashing tie. Cutting that fine figure is absolutely vital if you wish to play the game and win. The lawyer look is paramount in the courtroom and beyond. Our politicians, often lawyers themselves, stride smartly out before the camera’s gaze. Their pearly white teeth are matched by their highly polished Florsheims. Your legal counsel is like a well-dressed shark swimming in a sea full of lambs. He never lets you see the blood until it is too late.

Suits to sue in: Knock’em dead Thomas Cromwell, as you manoeuvre your Thomas Moore beneath the executioner’s axe. The law is a complex killing field, where besuited smarty pants with silver tongues do devilish work. The lawcourts are there to allow legal killing by the state. Roman laws have come down to us through the Westminster system. The Gracchi, Tiberius and Gaius, were slaughtered by their senatorial brothers for attempting to change the balance between patrician and plebeian, between rich and poor. The law may be dressed up finer than a manikin in a menswear shop, but it will incarcerate you or kill you faster than a swinging blade.

They will not get blood on that fine suit or a drop on their handkerchief or polished shoes. They will smile whilst they stitch you up tighter than a nun’s genitalia. Your fate is in their finely manicured hands. Whether you go home tonight and get to see your wife and kids is dependent upon their wily whim.  Your lawyer is your best friend while you are able to pay his fee. Woe betide the client who cannot pay his brief. Your legal representation will unravel quicker than a pair of pants made out of toilet paper. It can be a smelly business.

Dressing for Sex: Brothel Creepers De Rigueur

Home | Shopping Comments Off on Dressing for Sex: Brothel Creepers De Rigueur

It is without a doubt that your outward appearance and how you carry yourself is important. Women first take notice of a man’s fashion sense and personal hygiene. If you want to look confident, stylish and charming, you should take time in grooming yourself.

Whether you are partying at a club or visiting a brothel, men should dress for sex. You can’t look too formal or too cheesy. Making an impression always matter in these places. Here are some tips on what a stylish client should wear when visiting his local brothel for sex.

Dressing for Sex: Brothel Creepers De Rigueur 

  • Grooming

A man’s grooming items depend on the look he is aiming for. If you want to look lumbersexual, trim your beard to accentuate your facial features. A clean, shaven look can also do wonders. Just remember to wear your look with confidence.

  • Colors and Tones

Since most brothels operate in the dead of the night, wear something with dark hues of blue, black or grey. This palette will help you look dashing, especially with the kind of lighting that these establishments have. However, stay away from overly dark colours and avoid wearing an outfit with matching colours to avoid blending with the brothel. Remember that you also need to stand out.

  • Accessories

Wearing tasteful accessories is like an accessory escort that will show off your personal style. Adorning yourself with a watch is a simple, but elegant touch to your overall look. This being said, you need not to brag about your Rolex or any designer watch to exhibit sophistication and elegance. Any timepiece made of metal or leather will do. Wearing leather bracelets are also fine. Choose any leather or braided bracelets in earth tone to look chic.

  • Outfit

There are various outfit looks and combinations that you can try depending on your personality. If you just got out from work, a dressed-down suit in bold colours is attractive enough. Moreover, you can go for the casual look with washed-out pants, a sharp tee, a jacket and a pair of monks to cap it off. Just remember that your fashion style should reflect your personality.

  • Attitude

If you seriously want to look good, always maintain a good posture. Your body structure exhibits confidence. In addition, take note of your body language. Smile often to look approachable and trustworthy. Lastly, wear everything with pride and confidence. Whether you fit in designer clothes or not, the way you carry yourself will make or break your outfit for sex.

Disrobing in a Debonair Fashion

Shopping Comments Off on Disrobing in a Debonair Fashion

Porn stars and web cam girls adhere to certain fashion style, especially when performing in front of the camera. When on set, adult film actors use professional makeup artists and hair experts to pull-off that “porn star look”. Looking good on camera also involves a creative setting and an impressive wardrobe set. This being said, when people think about porn stars and web cam girls, their clothes aren’t exactly the first thing that pops up in their head.

It is important that adult film stars and online girls put an effort in what they will wear on set or on cam. Their outfit helps in building the sexual fantasy that they are selling. More so, to be a clear cut from the industry’s fierce competition, they need to be creative on their costume designs to attract more customers and clients.

Disrobing in a Debonair Fashion

One would think that clothes are not important in the adult industry. Why should we care about it if adult stars are going to take it off, right? According to a costume designer for adult movies, the ideal clothes for porn stars, and even cam girls, are those “easy in, easy out” type of clothes. For instance, girls should wear short skirts rather than jeans so that they can easily take it off. Also, their tops can be as simple as a shirt with buttons.

Porn films that revolve in period settings use big gowns where movements can be seen clearly and vividly. However, one piece gowns are a big no since the bodice needs to be left to still give that period feels. Porn stars and cam girls also use clothes in bright colours to standout and attract more viewers. For example, a cam girl in a bright red top will get more clients than a cam girl wearing dark tones.

Looking Good on Camera

Aside from how you dress yourself, there are other factors that contribute to how will you appear on cam. Proper lighting can do great wonders. Moreover, move your webcam to a position that will highlight your best features. Your backdrop will also make you more interesting. Even if you are selling sex, you still need to look professional. Add room accessories or props to give more meaning to your theme. Lastly, be confident on cam. Just be your natural self. Always take a deep breath before the camera rolls.

Standing Up Straight in that Suit: Posture & Style

Shopping Comments Off on Standing Up Straight in that Suit: Posture & Style

Looking good and stylish in the fashion world is not entirely dependent on the expensive clothes you wear and the posh accessories you adorn yourself with. There are other elements that contribute to how you look. One of them is your posture.

For you to look dashing in your suit and make an impression, you should consider maintaining a good, manly posture. Not only is it healthy, but standing up straight helps in looking good in fashionable clothes, especially for men. Your stature also emphasizes your outfit and shows how happy or comfortable you are with yourself and with what you are wearing. Some men even undergo multiple therapeutic massage sessions to gain such stature.

Standing Up Straight in that Suit: Posture & Style

There are various ways on how your posture affects your outward appearance. For instance, a crappy posture makes well-built guys look less manly. Maintaining a good posture also somehow generates a different look and feel in ourselves. It imbues confidence, even if we are not, and shows that we are at ease and sociable. Moreover, a proper stance gives the impression that we are taller or slimmer than we actually are.

Our posture also helps us fit better in our clothes. By standing up straight, you may realize that a fitted shirt that you’ve been avoiding actually looks good on you. But then again, it comes down to how you carry yourself in that suit. As the popular fashion adage says, “Don’t let the dress wears you”. With the right stance, you will be able to carry your body as how it is meant to be carried.

Maintaining and Emphasizing Good Posture

If you know you have a bad posture, you should really work on it. One good tip is to always put your weight on the balls of your feet and not on your heel. A good posture will bring about the manly and powerful structure that most men yearn.

People with postural problems often seek therapeutic massages to improve their stance. A good rubdown on your back will help it get back on track. It will also relax the sore muscles and joints caused by frequent slumping.

For you to look fashionable, your posture and outfit should go well together. To highlight that good stance, wear suits and blazers. These will highlight the inverted pyramid silhouette, which makes you look manly and confident. Moreover, polo or military shirts with shoulder details, or double breasted will surely evince a broader body structure.

There is no denying that the world of horse racing has its glamorous side. Perhaps, the horses themselves are the most exquisitely glamorous participants in the whole shebang. Their sleek and muscular shape and the fluid motion of their gallop are sublime to watch.

Dressed for Success: Track Ties and Hats

For the gentleman of the track he wants to be dressed for success in every manner. A finely cut suit from some Italian tailor, polished leather shoes, a terrific tie and, perhaps, a top hat.

They want to dress well and bet for free whenever possible. A good tip on a good thing; and with all these corporate bookie bonus bets flying around, who knows just what is possible.

Glamour glints like sunshine on the rim of a glass of Champers on a beautiful summer’s day. A Saturday at the track with one’s mates all around having a jolly good time. The thunder of the horses in the final straight in the shadow of the winning post, raises excitement and stimulation. The smell of perfume, alcohol, cigar smoke, horseshit and hot chips. Spent betting tickets line the grassy slopes like confetti at a wedding. Girls shriek with laughter; and horses prance about just shy of paranoia. Brightly coloured silks on jockeys catch the afternoon sun.

Pre-race jitters in the jerky movements of trainers and officials. The equine establishment takes horse racing very seriously.

Appreciating Furniture Designed for Masculine Tastes

Home Comments Off on Appreciating Furniture Designed for Masculine Tastes

For many years, household furniture designs have been skewed toward appealing to women and their feminine tastes. Men inhabited their homes to please and provide for their wives. Living rooms were home to frilly flower patterned couches and chairs. Bedrooms were a festival of pink and crinoline. Soft cushions and curtains coloured in pastels were de rigour. In some ways, this made sense, because traditionally women remained in the home to care for children and their menfolk went out to work. A woman wanted a soft and nurturing environment in which to bring up her children. Things have changed a great deal on the home front now.

Appreciating Furniture Designed for Masculine Tastes

Whether it was women’s liberation, or the rapacious economy, or, perhaps, a combination of the two, but women left the home to go to work. Their children were outsourced into professional child care. Homes became places where couples visited at night time and on weekends. Men and women were equally estranged from their domiciles. Why then, should the house be primarily decorated according to obsolete feminine fashions? Enter furniture designed for masculine tastes – a gentleman’s wardrobe and chrome and glass hard edged furniture in the living spaces.

Women were going to work and acting more like men. They wanted to break through that glass ceiling. Shoulder pads helped female executives shoulder out of the way male resistance. Capitalism favours aggression and women were hunting in the same kill zones as their male counterparts. Sex was hard and fast for both parties. One night stands were equally pursued with vigour and robust appetites. Nobody wanted to go home to a frilly flower festooned sofa or duvet. Appreciating furniture design for masculine tastes was now a shared interest between the sexes.

Coffee tables that exhausted corporate executives from both genders could rest their tired feet upon, whilst zoning out in front of the idiot box. Dark carpets to hide the stains and shame of spilt wine and takeaway. Queen and king sized beds to flop into and roll around in late at night and on the weekends. Subdued colours that reflected the state of their corporate souls. Not too many mirrors in which to confront the terrible truth about oneself. Leather couches and hard lines defining the décor in every room. Very big TV screens to absorb the consciousness of the inhabitant. All masculine accoutrements to avoid introspection or serious contemplation about the state of their lives and relationships.

A Real Man’s Kitchen

Home Comments Off on A Real Man’s Kitchen

The kitchen used to be the exclusive domain of the lady in the frilly apron. It was traditionally, in most cultures, a no go zone for testosterone. A place where sponges and cup-cakes ruled the culinary universe. The Country Women’s Association (CWA) cookbook was the bible and, later, Margaret Fulton was the Demeter goddess of all things to do with the kitchen. The domestic world positioned the female gender behind the cooker and banned blokes from doing anything but a little washing up. Professionally, of course, chefs were, generally, of the male sex. The steamy and bang crash world of the commercial kitchen was, usually, inhabited by men.

A Real Man’s Kitchen

Today, in the twenty first century, things have changed, there are more fellas brandishing wooden spoons and frying pans. Equally, there are many more women too busy with work to cook in much more than a cursory fashion. High paid couples eat out and consume lots of takeaway. Families patronise the fast food drive throughs and see more golden arches than they do the inside of a kitchen. Some blokes are devoted home cooks and love to peruse the online recipe pages and trawl through produce markets whenever they can.

So, what does a real man’s kitchen look like. Somewhere you can hang and pound plenty of beef. Where super sharp knives slice and dice slivers of veal and pork loin. Where bloody big mortars and pestles bruise and mash chillies and exotic spices. Granite surfaces, beautiful timber cabinets and some stainless steel. DIY aficionados will design the joint themselves. You know, kitchen cabinet renovation can be easier than you might imagine. For the chap handy with his mitts, it is not too hard to put a kitchen together yourself.

A real man’s kitchen has tons of bench space and storage space. Space is the place, Dude. You cannot cook real food in a phone box. You need a big grill to flame lashings of flesh with some charcoal. You want a really big oven. Gas stovetop cooking is essential for the real man. You only get that level of instant heat control with a real gas flame. You want a design that incorporates easy cleaning – not too many hard to get at corners and cracks. A good floor surface is a must as well. The benches need to be the right height for a big bloke; too much bending is not good.
