A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: Mistakes to Stop Making

A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: Mistakes to Stop Making

It doesn’t matter what you personal style may be, there are some things which are simply unacceptable.

Any time you go out into public and look around, you’re almost certain to see someone making one of these mistakes. If you’re one of them, you need to stop now. Don’t try to justify it in any way, just accept it for the mistake it is, and knock it off. Continue reading “A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: Mistakes to Stop Making” »

A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: Shirts & Accessories

A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: Shirts & Accessories

Choosing a shirt and accessories to complete your style is one of the easiest parts of the entire process, and is where the door is opened for more adventurous choices.

You can never buy a shirt for life, they are always temporary and comparatively cheap. If you want to jump in on trends, or do something outlandish, this is always the best place to do it. It’s far easier to eat the cost of a $30 shirt you wore once, than $600 boots.

With that being said, here are some simple things to keep in mind. Continue reading “A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: Shirts & Accessories” »

A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: A Guide to Denim

A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: A Guide to Denim

If you only own one pair of pants, there is no debate over what that should be. Blue jeans are the american standard for a reason: they’re great.

The problem is America has been led astray by marketers for so long, the majority of Americans don’t know what good denim is. To put it bluntly: it’s safe to say just about every pair of jeans you have ever seen in any store (which wasn’t a specialty denim store) was crap.

This might seem a little harsh, but let me explain. Continue reading “A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: A Guide to Denim” »

A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: A Good Pair of Boots

A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: A Good Pair of Boots

You can tell a lot about a man from his choice in footwear, and when it comes to choosing shoes you will be hard-pressed to do much better than a sturdy pair of leather boots.

Boots are the most perfect example of men’s style fitting the three f’s. Leather boots are the most functional things you could wear on your feet (again, this excludes sport-specific technical items), are always purchased to fit extremely well, and they will look better and more fashionable the longer they’re worn.

A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: The Basics

A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: The Basics

If you want to take the next step towards being the best man you can be, you need to stop being afraid of style.

I’m not about to say you need to get in touch your feminine side, or have to get a hard on shopping for shoes, none of that crap. But too many men are scared to the point of inaction from cultivating their own style.

When I talk about fear, I’m talking about:

  • Fear of wasting money on something they will never wear.
  • Fear of looking or feeling stupid.
  • Fear of making a mistake, a lack of confidence.

As men do, we rationalize these fears, often to the point of absurdity. We hold on to shoes, holes worn through the sole, because they’re comfortable. Our single formal outfit no longer fits, but look at what great shape it’s in! Continue reading “A Brief Guide to Men’s Style: The Basics” »

How to Get Girls: Supply and Demand

How to Get Girls: Supply and Demand

This single concept is the most important tip of all when it comes to picking up girls. Supply and demand is the be-all and end-all of marketing for a reason: nothing else matters when it comes to getting new customers.

Look at a brand like Supreme. Fundamentally their clothes are no different than any others. If you could buy them on any corner in any city, no one would even know their name. You don’t need to be the best, baddest, kid on the block: to get the girls. You simply need to manipulate the concept of supply and demand. Continue reading “How to Get Girls: Supply and Demand” »

How to Master any Skill

How to Master any Skill

No matter what your interests, hobbies, professions, or proclivities; your goal should be to come as close to mastery as possible, in the time provided.

We have all heard the expression that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to master a single skill. The actual number is irrelevant, the point is: mastering anything takes a significant amount of work. As is typically the case in life, we don’t often have the ability to dedicate nearly three years of our waking life to a single task.

You’re going to need to find some shortcuts. Continue reading “How to Master any Skill” »

Why You Can’t Trust Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible

Why You Can’t Trust Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible

Every year Jim Murray puts out a new edition of his “Whisky Bible”, and every year I end up having to explain to someone why Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible can’t be trusted.

Jim Murray is famous for two things: drinking whiskey, and writing about drinking whiskey. Every year he puts out a book talking about what whiskey he drank, and how he liked all of it. The first thing I need to state, and I want to be very clear, is that Murray is an expert on whiskey. He knows what he is talking about, and he certainly knows more about whiskey than I, or any of my readers do. So should you buy his book? Probably. Should you trust his list of the best whiskeys? Probably not. Continue reading “Why You Can’t Trust Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible” »

WWJWD: What Would John Wayne Do?

WWJWD: What Would John Wayne Do?

A little while back I went back and removed a bunch of the earliest posts to this blog. They won’t be missed. Unfortunately, one article I wouldn’t have removed got caught up along with them. This morning I got a message from a man asking me if I had a copy of it, because he couldn’t find it anymore on my site. I dug it up, and was about to send it to him but decided to post it back here instead. 

Thank you.

-Sean Lind.

Every man will find himself in a quandary from time to time. When in doubt and in need of guidance you need ask yourself just one question: What Would John Wayne Do?

When I was just a boy I was having a very serious discussion with my father about a choice he had made when I tried to show I understood by throwing out the cliché “you should never take the easy way out”.

His response was some of the best advice I have received. “No” he said, “you should always take the best way out”. Continue reading “WWJWD: What Would John Wayne Do?” »
