I despise cheap shoes. Leave the rubber soles and square toes on the shelf. Here are some tips for my newbies and fellow shoe lovers…

If you’re the kind of guy that’s not trendy, go for a slim rounded toe. They’re ALWAYS in season and on trend.

 Take your time and choose wisely.

No need to have a shoe for every event unless you want to. If you’re a simple kind of guy invest in a couple of faithful pairs. The right shoe can be translated from day to night, jeans or slacks.

Put taps on your shoes. They’ll preserve your heel and toe and ultimately giving your shoe much longer life.

Regularly polish, wipe and/or buff your shoes.

Be bold…Every shoe doesn’t have to be black or brown

Enjoy the double takes in your double breast…
The double breasted blazer has been around for ages,and for good reason too. Its one of those silhouettes that not only screams power, but it gives even the roundest of men a flattering figure. It has a built in hour glass shape and the tailoring (when done properly) can trick anyone.

Does anyone still believe in longevity?

I’m convinced that today’s couple have no staying power or real sense of commitment. When two people make the decision to become one, class is now in session! You plunge into a continuous voyage of learning the other party.Nothing stays the same including people, so how could you have learned someone, and moved on in two months? Were you ever really serious about a commitment? Could it be you just wanted the made up fairytale of perfection that’s offered to us by movies, books and media and when it seemed far fetched you ran? All great things take work, even the things that seem to have fallen into our laps.Continuous work…daily contributions of effort. Kirk Franklin said it best. “The reason marriage vows say til death do us part is because that’s how long it takes to get to know someone.” When you enter into a relationship you are making the sensible decision to learn someone everyday. The good, the bad and the ugly. The list will grow longer by the year but its up to us to view the pro’s over the con’s.

One of the greatest issues with couples is maintenance. We start strong with flowers, candy, hours of conversation and somewhere down the line our train loses steam. The flowers stop, the conversations get shorter and the compliments turn into insults. Add that to the rise of social networking running our lives and the hours we spend on instagram instead of on a date with each other. Bottom line…Love is a determination. A decision to grow with someone even when things look like they could be failing. I am in no way saying stay and dawdle in unhappiness. I’m simply suggesting that all avenues be tried, before calling it quits. Remember the reason you fell in love and decide to make more of those memories. Recall and dwell on the times that brought you into each others arms in the first place. Life is repetition. The sun will always set and the moon will rise again. If you stick around even when things seem tough, eventually pleasure and contentment will come full circle.Whenever you’re angry, take a moment to remember a season where things seemed perfect and see if those moments are worth reliving and reviving. There’s NOTHING wrong with moving on…But moving on and running in search of something you’re lacking within are two very different things.

There’s a rule that men should be very basic, boring and blah. Forget that rule! At least when it comes to your tie. It was made to stand out and get attention. Dump your tie with the zipper, hook and basic solid fabric and find a conversation starter for your neck! 

After complaining all winter for Spring to finally get here, Lets treat her with some respect.

Toss those black and gray sweaters to the back of your closet and embrace some color.

Avoiding contrasting prints is the only rule of the game. Other than that, there’s no wrong way to color block!
