Many fashion experts predicted the rise of motocross outfits as the next global fashion trend in 2017, but racing gear has typically enjoyed runway rotations as far as 2014. FW14-inspired menswear collection, Marc by Marc Jacob gave a salute to race sports steez, and MX-ISM, a collection by and Ètudes Studio SS15 had models wearing synthetic tops inspired by MX while carrying helmets. Nowadays, it seems like everyone is taking on race-inspired fashion. Labels such as Berlin magazine 032c, Supreme, Alyx Studio and even Maison Margiela are riding dirty and hard with racing-inspired outfits. There are no indications of this trend going down, so as spring approaches, it may be a good time to dump your down jacket for a trendy dirt jacket and spice up your wardrobe with some outstanding race-inspired gear.
Bimba Y Lola
Popular for its original prints, this Spanish brand is not a stranger when it comes to striking outfits. Just in time for the F1, its current outfits are all about the speed art: think racer motorbikes, cars, race tracks, human cannonballs, supersonic aircraft, and rockets among others. You can make a statement with Bimba Y Lola or gear up in outfits decorated in motifs like rockets, helmets, and cars and fasten your seatbelt for a memorable F1 experience.
Are you looking for a luxe and an authentic impression on the race sports trend? Then you can add the black moto jacket by Alyx Studio to your wardrobe. The cost of this item may be rather exorbitant, but that is because it is an item of the brand’s unlimited commitment to quality giving the Ducati racing team awesome car racing experiences.
In fact, this jacket is fashioned in partnership with a family-owned Italian motorcycle producer, Spidi, with forty years of experience in the industry. The moto-gear experts consider the Ducati racing group its client and they also focus on highly functional gear that can save lives.
This rising racer-inspired hoodie by Neige presents popular streetwear that may not give you enough protection when it comes to motorsports. However, the subtle racing-inspired graphic of this hoodie and its affordable price will at least make you look like a part of the event.
032c Motocross Flames Long-sleeve
The Berlin-based fashion and the culture mag 032c have expanded their offering with a complete motocross fashion line. The poly long sleeve with fiery graphics and a dazed printed pattern is precisely the kind of look you want for a memorable event. This product also features the iconic rubber logo of the magazine stamped artistically at the cuffs. Considering the selection of garments produced by 032c in limited quantities, its latest price tag is extremely more of a steal.
This label is based in London, and it has cultivated an amazing collection when it comes to motorsport outfits. In fact, the head honcho of the brand is an ex-racer-sport himself. These Race Pants come in a vibrant retro dirt bike style. They are made from resilient and hard wearing nylon making them super cool and slim-fit. They also have a cowhide knee patch and a mesh lining as well.
The Downtown LA label is popular for its reworking streetwear fasteners with familiar sports gear insignia. The 92G Longsleeve is a simple outfit that typically gets understated motocross graphics treatment, and it presents a more passive way to take on the noisiest fashion trend.
Do you have your tickets ready for the upcoming race-car sport or any of its supporting concerts and parties? If so then you are halfway there ready to have a moment of a lifetime. The next thing is to figure out what you should wear, and that’s almost as significant as the engine fuel. Whether you are watching the race while walking around the tracks or from a club, the above race-car inspired outfits will give you a grand ball of a time.
The Best-Dressed Male Celebrities Of 2019
Being a suave and dapper gentleman is an aspiration for most men, so it’s good to believe it’s an achievable goal, even if it isn’t. The dapper chaps were going to look at in this list have A-lister status and often an army of stylists and fashion designers to prepare them before they hit the red carpet. All this goes to say: Don’t feel too bad if you can’t match their style because they’re here for inspiration.
So, here follows a list of some of the best-dressed men in the world and their fashion credentials for your perusing pleasure. All the men previously appeared on GQ’s top 50 Best-Dressed Men in 2019, but so as not to bore our readers, we’re only going to look at our personal favourites.
At the top of our list, Gosling has an effortless charm that translates into his clothing choices. A lot of his style centres around casual retro-Americana — jean jackets, bomber jackets, printed sweaters with rolled up sleeves or washed-out jeans with a simple white tee. That said, when it comes time to suit up, he goes bold, usually opting for a well-tailored, no-tie look with stand-out colours and a subtle print. Gosling is also a man who knows how to accessorise, often donning a sharp pair of sunglasses and wristwear to complete his look. Off the red carpet, keeping it simple seems to be the key for the Gosling look, which thankfully, means it’s not too hard for us mere mortals to emulate his style.
Beckham has been a regular on the GQ list for over two decades, proving that he has style in spades as well as the longevity to match. If you’ve seen the pictures of him at the recent Royal Wedding, then you’ll understand. Whether it’s a casual look while tramping through an airport or a suited and booted look for one of the various gala’s or red-carpet events he attends regularly, Beckham always looks outstanding on-camera. We’re curious to know how much of that is Posh Spice’s doing.
The Notorious One is no stranger to high fashion, often showing up to UFC press conferences in dazzling suits from Gucci and other designers. Whether you’re a fan of his brash and bold attitude or not, it’s hard not to admire some of his style choices. McGregor, who until his defeat at the hands of Khabib Nurmagomedov ranked as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the UFC, has a particular affinity for the Versace brand. Only recently, the UFC fighter wished designer Donatella Versace a happy birthday through an Instagram post, showing a series of pictures of the two looking quite chummy indeed. They’re so close, apparently, that McGregor was able to throw a lavish birthday party for his mum at the Versace mansion in Miami, dressing all his family in Versace clothing to boot.
Actor, writer, producer, rapper and musical genius, Glover has a whole raft of credentials under his belt at a fairly young age. On top of all of this, he ranked first on the GQ list this year for his impeccable style. Casual and comfortable are the keywords for Glover’s style. However, he has a penchant for high-end Gucci items like Gucci loafers, often worn in an understated fashion as part of a casual ensemble. When dressing up, he often goes for a 70’s-esque suited style with the no-tie look, sometimes subtle, sometimes bold as hell. It’s a hard style to emulate for those without deep pockets and a personal stylist, but if you can manage it, then he’s the one to inspire you.
Honourable Mention: Jeff Goldblum
Let’s be honest with ourselves here: There’s no other man with this much flavour. Or at least, no other man in his 60s who could pull off this much flavour in his wardrobe choices and get away with it. Hero.
So, there you have it: Some of the best-dressed male fashion icons on the planet. I’m sure there are a hundred other suave gentlemen that deserve a mention, but for the purpose of inspiration, whether you’re looking for some tips on style or a template to reinvent your look, you need to look no further than these mighty few.
8 Fashion Tips For The Elderly
When age is just a number, why let that number hold your inner fashionista from coming out? Remember that you can still look fashionable and enjoy those compliments with a little homework or help. It is true that comfort becomes a big driving force for the elderly while choosing clothes and other items. Following fashion doesn’t necessarily mean letting go of comfort. Putting in a little thought can bring fashion and comfort together. Let’s see how you can rock the world with your look.
1. Recognize Your Style
Recognizing and following one’s own style brings confidence and no kind of fashion can match that. See if you’re more into fun, quirky, bold, boho chic, casual, active wear or elegant dressing style. Easy way to do that is to categorize your belongings, checking majority and ultimately your inclination towards the different styles.
Going overboard on any kind of style is a complete NO. If you’re into bright colors, funky and bold style then always try to balance it with something less loud. Similarly, if pastels and nude colors are more your things, a little bright color once in a while will bring in some oomph factor. It is all about balance folks.
3. Minimal Jewelry
Too much jewelry can do the opposite of making you look good. Keep your jewelry game to a minimal, deal with signature pieces that are unique, light and that complements your personality. Follow the rule of two or maximum three pieces at once. Besides, carrying too much of expensive jewelry is risky.
4. Experiment Sometimes
If you’ve been following one style from a long time and you feel like shaking things up a bit, well go ahead. Experiment with something that you always thought was chic but felt like you won’t be able to carry. Well give it a try and bring some change in your look. You never know, it might become your new thing. What’s there to lose anyway?
You have to make sure that every fashion item that you choose is safe enough to be worn for a long period of time especially footwear. Ladies, be careful with those heels and avoid it if you can. Your footwear should be comfortable and non-slippery. For overall safety carry a wireless panic button everywhere. It can be worn as a pendant or a bracelet as well.
6. Experiment with Pastels
Pastel colors are quite popular among the elderly. If you think they are boring, think again. Pastels are simply classy, so experiment a lot with them to make it work on your body. Pastel colored clothes are essential for the elderly, it brings out their soft and subtle nature. So, invest in a lot of them, do mix and match, you’ll be surprised every time.
This rule applies to everybody and elder people are no exception. Trend changes all the time, and frankly speaking, most of them are absurd. Some trend may look good to the eye but may not be workable for you. So, if something catches your attention, see if it matches your style and personality.
8. Most Important Factor Is Comfort
Yes, comfort should be the first criteria in choosing clothes, shoes and other fashion items. Tight t-shirts, jeans, trousers etc. are just going to make you feel uneasy all day. Inferior fabrics will give you discomfort, heavy ones will disturb your daily activities. So, try every piece and buy only if it ticks mark the comfort criteria.
Looking good doesn’t require that much effort, play smart, follow these tips and you can never go wrong. Take help from family and friends if you may. Keep two things in mind always- first, elderly people look adorable in whatever they wear and second, smile is the best accessory that you can put on.
6 Tips For Sewing Sequin Fabric
Sequin fabric can be called as the peacock of this fabric world. So flashy, so pretty, and absolutely irresistible! And the best part is it that you can sew it within minutes and that too without any hassles. You can easily transform a boring top or skirt with quick sequin work.
If you too are looking to revamp your old dress into something glittery and flashy, follow these simple tips to get that perfect look!
Go for a Simple Pattern
First things first! You need to determine the texture of your sequin fabrics like is it stretchable or not. Sequins are generally a bit bulky as compared to the tee-shirt or dress fabric and might develop a bulge. To be on a safer side; for a simple pattern like butterfly, flowers or a ladybug to start with. Though you can do some add-ons if your dress can handle it!
Don’t forget the Lining
If you haven’t worn sequin dresses in the past, this is a very important tip for you. Sequins can get really uncomfortable and scratchy if directly sewed on the dress. There are two options with you; either you select a dress which already has lining attached to it, or go for a pattern which includes lining in it.
Take care of your Scissors and Needles
Sequins are made from hard plastic material and are available in different colors and shapes. While sewing sequins in your dress, you need to be extra careful with your equipment. They are hard enough to dull any sharp scissors. Go for leather needles which can pierce the sequins right into the dress and saving your equipment as well.
We all know that a hot iron can damage the shine of sequin. So what should be done to align them in a single direction? You can apply a bit of pressure to completely flatten them in sync of the design. Most of the times, this trick will work for you. Still, if you are looking for some more perfection, go for a rolling pin or similar things.
Prevent a Mess!
Working with sequins is undoubtedly a tough task. First you need to be extra careful with the color and shape of the sequin; second, you also need to prevent yourself from causing a mess both in your home and dress. Many times, sequins do slip and fall in the gap of the cloth that is folded with the help of sewing machine.
Best of all, make sure you sit in a clean place and clear any extra sequins sticking to your dress. This will not only enhance the intricacies and stitch of the dress but will also prevent you from public embarrassment.
Don’t forget to Mark the Fabric!
Avoid starting a sequin stitch directly on the fabric. It is advisable to make a mark or outline for the design and then start stitching. This will eliminate any chances of error in the final design. Also marking on the front side of the fabric might leave its marks on the fabric. It’s better to do the marking on the inside part of the dress.
No need to sweat it out!
Generally, we don’t prefer to wear sequin dresses frequently. They are meant to be flashy and glossy. So, my point here is, it’s okay to leave the sequins in the seam allowance. This can be a personal choice of the wearer, but the decision should be taken according to its frequency of usage. Also, you should consider removing it if it discomforts you.
These were some simple and useful tips for sewing sequin fabric. Sequins can do wonders to any fabric by adding a lot of styles and shine to it. It is essential to select the appropriate sequin color and shape that goes well with your outfit.

9 Of The Hottest Japanese Watches For Men In 2019
In the realm of luxury watches, there are two main players when it comes to watching movements; the Swiss and the Japanese. While experts debate whether the workings of Swiss or Japanese watches are best, for most of us the difference between two watches comes from the styling, not the movement inside.
While Switzerland is home to household names like Rolex and Tag Heuer, Japanese watch brands include Seiko, Casio, and Citizen. If you’ve never really considered a Japanese watch before, here’s our pick of the top 9.
9 Best Japanese Watches
Perhaps the main difference between the two watch-making countries is that whilst the Swiss tend to follow tradition, Japanese watches have a reputation for technology. Whether you are looking for a watch with quartz or mechanical movement, there is something for you in this list.
1. Citizen Eco-Drive Titanium Perpetual Chronograph A-T Watch
You’ll never need to change the battery of this watch, as it is fitted with Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology. The internal lithium-ion cell is charged by converting light into energy. Considered one of the best Japanese watches for water sports and marine activities (but not scuba diving), it includes a one-second chronograph that will keep measuring for up to one hour.
Although they were first invented in Britain rather than Japan automatic watches are just as popular with Japanese manufacturers as they are in other countries. This model from Seiko is a true dive watch, suitable for depths down to 200m. Style hasn’t been sacrificed for performance, with the stainless steel casing contrasting with the black dial.
The classic diving look is complemented by a chunky strap. The display has hour markers, with minutes on the bezel, and a date window available in both English and Spanish.
3. G-Shock GA 100 Military Series Watch
Casio carved a name for style as a Japanese watch brand with its Casio G-Shock series. Their heavy-duty designs have made them popular with tough guys the world over, and the GA 100 is another of that type.
The design is all matte black, from the dial to the chunky resin band. The GA 100 has both analog and digital display and is fully programmable. It’s also shockproof and watertight to 200m if you live up to the action man look.
4. Citizen Eco-Drive Titanium Watch
The second from Citizen on this list, and another fitted with the eco-drive technology from this Japanese watch brand. Where this differs from the first watch, is that this model is styled for casual or dress wear, rather than for activity.
It has a titanium case with black dials and includes a chronograph. It’s also waterproof to 200m, but we wouldn’t recommend getting the leather strap wet. It also contains a date window and a low-charge indicator just in case you don’t get enough sunlight.
Orient is the brand to turn to if you want something stylish and understated, but with consummate engineering. The design is fuss-free, with a blue dial and titanium case contrasting with a brown calfskin band.
The dial is uncluttered, containing only the clock face itself with an outer and inner dial and a date window. No need to worry about winding either, as this model contains Orient’s caliber 48743 automatic winding mechanism.
6. Orient Monarch Mechanical Hand Wind Watch
If you want to create a vintage look with a brand new timepiece then the Monarch is right up your street. It has a simple steel case and a domed glass, protecting the black dial which is decorated in a timeless style.
7. Citizen Eco-Drive Avion Sport Stainless Steel Watch
Another vintage-inspired piece, this one harks back to the 1950s. The black strap has contrasting white stitching, a color choice echoed in the dial and hands. Despite the classic look, it contains Citizen’s eco-drive and will self-charge from natural light.
Waterproof to 100m, the Avion also has 12 and 24-hour clock dials and a date window. It might look like it’s slipped from the wrist of a pioneering trans-Atlantic pilot, but the Avion is all modern under the hood.
8. Seiko 5 Automatic Stainless Steel Watch
Showing the versatility of Japanese watch brands, this model couldn’t be more different from Seiko’s other entrant onto this list. The 5 is an understated, military style watch that would look as good on your wrist on a night out as it would on a long hike.
With a brushed metal bezel and khaki strap and dial, the 5 has both inner and outer dials and a date window. Underneath the case is a 21-jewel automatic movement that means you’ll never need to stop and wind.
9. Orient Ray 2 Analog Japanese Automatic Silver Watch
An upgraded version of Orient’s best-seller, the Ray, they’ve upgraded the movement and added a hand-wind feature if you want to give the automatic winding a helping hand. If synching watches with others is useful for you, you can stop the second hand just by pulling out the crown.
Looks-wise, the Ray 2 is a slimmer version of the Ray. It has an attractive stainless steel bracelet and a blue face that echoes the Rolex Submariner. It includes a 120-click diving bezel, sword hands, and a date window.
Performance and Style
There’s no doubt, looking at this list, that Japanese watches can stand their ground when compared with models from any other maker around the world. A great watch is a combination of functional and stylish. It contains features that make life easier and blends well whether we’re working, socializing or getting out into nature.
If you need a little help in working out your balance of style and functionality, then keep watching our fashion section. We regularly share content about what is good and what is not in the world of men’s fashion. Whether it’s the best in Japanese watches or the must-have fashion accessories, we’ve got you covered.
