SHORT/SWIM/SHORTS

Thursday morning, while I’m in between jobs for weeks now (in a good way) for the first time after long months of extreme summer here in Dubai I finally made it to my favorite Mamzar beach where the water is smooth as silk and quiet like a lake. (Yah, I know this beach is unusual, not for surfers but good for swimming lapses and sun worshippers. FYI, Mamzar beach shoreline is manmade. Oh yeh!) So there I went by 8am (because it opens to public by that time) then left after 2 hours to save my self from skin cancer. I went to shop for a new swim shorts at River Island the night before and there I almost hoard those items on sale. Not proud but I’m a compulsive shopper. Back to River Island, I found great collection of printed swim short that are similar from my another favorite online store Mr Porter. Short swimming shorts are the trends for men specially the printed designs mostly vintage graphics or patterned. Here are some collection …

The Lomo Heat

One summer evening before the sunset, that’s 6:30 pm in Dubai. The sun was still up until 7:10 pm. High humidity (almost damp) with outstanding temperature in the wind. Yes we did, just right after work. After posting “Let’s Pull & Bear” I went to visit Pull&Bear in Deira City Centre and took some stuff. I am very lucky to find this limited edition vintage canvas bag with a genuine leather strap. A staff on the cash counter told me that I just purchased a high quality product, its very strong and will outlast. Anyone can tell that it is indeed look tough even the trousers with a label tagline saying “Stronger than ever”. Pull and Bear is a Spanish clothing and accessories retailer based in Narón, Galicia and founded in 1991. The company began to sell through an online store in September 2011. Here in Dubai you can find them at Deira City Centre, Dubai Mall, Mercato and Mall of the Emirates. Top: Photo Edition Shirt not from P&B but from Bershka. Carrot fit …

MEN’S FASHION BASICS: The V-Neck

MEN’S FASHION BASICS: The V-Neck Most of the time, people judge you by what you’re wearing, and if you care about what people think, you should care about what you wear. I find V-neck shirt the most basic and comfy yet really stylish especially this summer but not all men can wear it. Guys wearing it could compensate a sexy or tough bad ass look if worn properly. Some call it the heavage the opposite of women’s cleavage because v-neck exposes mens chest below the collar bone and even down to the midriff. But how should a real man wear it right without getting the wrong impression. Some guys look really cool in a V-neck tee such as this famous celebrities below, and some guys looks like a hanger. Usually a good chest helps to fill out a tee, but with a V-neck I think a well defined collar bone is a huge help. This is similar to the idea of never wear a tank-top unless you have well defined shoulders. A guy who has …

MEN’S FASHION: A Short Review

MEN’S FASHION: A Short Review Cargo, tapered, short shorts, slim leg and carrot cut are just few kinds of short pants for men. I myself is a big fan of shorts and seldom go out wearing trouser or jeans but of course it depends on occasion. If I can wear shorts at work I definitely will. Who doesn’t love short pants anyway, since it’s very comfortable, light and easy especially this summer. From casual to semi-formal, denim to pattern & prints, here are my compilation of shorts. Make sure to check out how they wear them and pair with sandals, trainers, lofers or even with formal shoes. (Images are taken from my fav blog sartorialist.com) Slim leg, folded 2 inches from the knee. Tapered shorts can be really masculine. But then again just like the V-Neck shirt, not everyone can wear it properly, the key is having a toned legs. Cargo pants with blazer are more than casual Very cool for summer Prints and patters are here and formal too
