trendy beard styles
Growing beards is trending for most DJs and artists. It defines them, gives them status and confirms their manliness. If you are young and want to look older, your facial hair can change your shape and place you in the desired age group. A few whiskers will, indeed, make your face look older. Unfortunately, if you are a new DJ or artist, you may not know the style that fits you unless you do some research and read some of the leading beard style guides. Here are the top 5 styles for DJs and artists to choose from.

Van Dyke Beard style

This style combines both a goatee and mustache styles features. It is associated with a17th-century painter and requires precision styling. If your beard is short, this style may not be suitable for you. To shape it, you need a good shaver and long beards. It entails shaving all the hair around the neck, cheek as well as sideburns. The barber must shape the beards on the chin so that it forms an inverted T. It means that if your beard is less than two inches, it may not be a style for you. The beard around the chin area must be allowed to grow to more than two inches before your barber shapes the Van Dyke beard style.

Style #2 Stubble

The style is not only easy to cultivate, but it is the simplest to maintain. This makes it ideal for DJs and artists who need to spend more of their time in the studio. All you need is to let your hair grow for a few days and request your barber to shape the stubble style. It is one of the styles that came around in the 1930s but suits most face shapes. Studies in the Northumbria University established that DJs and artists with this style attract more women than those without. It is an ideal style for artists with baby faces because it makes them look mature. Men with uneven beards, pigmentation and acne scars always find comfort in the stubble beard style since provide an ideal camouflage. To shape this style the beards must be allowed to grow for four days so that they lay flatter on the face. Stubble beard style is easy to maintain and requires some regular conditioning and trimming.

Style #3 The Goatee

Of course, we are aware that this has been the main beard style for rock stars and intellectuals. But, the style is trending and finding more space in the art industry and is a style of choice for many DJs. The style feature some hair above the lip and the chin. The hair on the lip and the chin are then connected so as to create a beautiful frame for the mouth.

The goatee style is preferred by artists who find it difficult to grow full beards. It is also ideal for anyone with uneven and patchy beards. If you are slim and have an angular face, this style can be your choice. It is also suitable for people with round faces since it makes the faces look slimmer.

To maintain the style, you must check on the beard regularly and use the recommended oil. Use a trimer to ensure that the whiskers sit above the edges of your upper lip.

Style #4 The Beardstache

The style allows the mustache to grow longer than the surrounding hair. It is one of those styles that oozes masculinity if done by an expert. It is a popular style with actors since it is the best lightweight style to choose. The style works well on most face shapes and could be an ideal one for people with a wider chin because of its ability to draw people’s attention to the face. It combines the features of stubble and a full beard. Thus, so the maintenance strategy should revolve around accommodate both styles. Use the trimmer to keep the hair around the chin extended as it is the case in the stubble beards. However, you should grow the mustache so that the finish on the sides is lower than the bottom lip. A comb may be used to maintain the stache part

Style #5 The Short Beard

These style is becoming popular with artists who also work in offices. It is office friendly and versatile. The short beard is men’s best style for men since it is suitable for most faces. If the angle is tailored, it can help men emphasize their best features.

If you are one of the artists with a round face, you will find this style suitable for you. The only thing you may need to do is to reduce the length of the side so that you elongate the face a little bit. Also, if men with a narrow and thin faces leave the sides longer, it helps to add width. The only problem with this style is that you must visit a barber for the first trim. The beard should grow to around 1-2 cm before you visit a barber to have it trimmed. Subsequent trims can be done at home. Notice that maintaining the style requires regular trims.

Fashion Tips For Men To Look Stylish All Summer Long
As a general rule of thumb, women tend to focus on fashion more than men. In fact, most men don’t really pay attention to what they put on in the morning after they roll out of bed. Putting a little bit of time and effort into your appearance, however, can go a long way toward boosting your confidence and helping you get ahead in life. The summer is not long, so we want to give you some advice about stylish looks to wear this season, take your wardrobe to the next level, and get ready because it will go further than just men’s swimwear inside your luggage. Check out the following summer fashion tips for men to get some ideas and inspiration on how to upgrade your look:

1. Invest in a high-end watch

One way to instantly elevate your style is by investing in a watch with a beautiful, classic style. Today, there are a lot of high-tech watches and devices on the market – look no further than Apple watches or Fitbits for examples of wearable technology. Over time, these trends are likely to fade. High-end watches with a sleek, elegant style, however, will remain fashionable forever. It is worth investing in a watch that you can wear for many years to come.

2. Purchase a couple of button-down shirts

Button-down shirts are a great option for the summer. Typically, they are made from lightweight, breathable fabrics. They also fit relatively loosely, allowing the air to flow underneath them. A casual white button-down shirt is a great choice for most summer days. To keep the look from being too formal, leave the collar unbuttoned and roll the sleeves up a little bit. You can pair a shirt like this with everything from jeans to shorts.

Button-down shirts
For the evening, a casual button-down shirt in a classic shade of navy blue is a great option. This can help you stay cool while at the same time allowing you to look your best. If you want to add a little bit more excitement to your look, consider choosing a navy shirt with a pattern. Paisley and polka dots are both great choices.

3. Buy a pair of boat shoes

Flip-flops may be comfortable but they don’t do a lot to elevate your style. At the same time, however, you obviously need to find shoes that will keep your feet cool. This is where boat shoes come into the picture. Not only are these shoes really comfortable to wear but they also are a little bit dressier than flip-flops. They are the perfect choice for casual summer days since they can keep your feet cool and comfortable all day long while at the same time allowing you to look fashionable. Quality leather sandals can also be an option, try Sole Trader for more info on this trend.

T-shirts are the go-to choice for most men – with good reason. They are extremely comfortable to wear. At the same time, however, they are quite lacking from a fashion standpoint. Baggy and shapeless, they tend to leave you looking like you didn’t put much thought into your appearance. One way to get around this problem is by purchasing Henley shirts. At the most basic level, these are simple T-shirts. The primary difference is that they have buttons at the neck. Despite their simple design, they can go a long way toward making you look stylish. As long as they fit well, they can also help make you look more muscular and well-toned.

The Meaning Of Cocconero — The New Bag For Men

Published

on

Cocconero
The name Coco originates from the word ‘Coccolone’ meaning to be a ‘big softy’ in conjunction with Nero, being a strong symbol of color, works together to make Cocconero. In where any man of any culture and country wearing a beard is able to look brave and strong but also has a good soul. This man has no political attitude, he does have a story to tell. The story of his life. He carries this bag, that is able to carry his most important things on his journey.

The Bags
Space for your eventful life “Napoleone”

Are you planning your next trip? Better if your luggage stays as compact as possible. On flights, for example, every kilo of weight and every centimeter of volume counts. You also like to have one hand free while the other carries the luggage. It would make sense to have a really intelligent bag that fulfills all these requirements and still looks great.

bag for men
This fashion brand has designed the Napoleone, modeled on the fish Napoleone. The idea: A bag that you carry as close to your body as possible. You can wear it over your clothes, but also underneath, for example under your jacket or coat, which is safer in a crowd. And so close to your body you hardly feel the weight, whatever you are carrying.

Many compartments for a lot of order

After all, you want to be equipped on the road. Smartphone, tablet, earphones, wallet, glasses, keys, reading, and whatever else you need – in your city or anywhere.

The Napoleone has been thought out down to the last detail. Outside it offers you two compartments with zipper and one with button closure. Inside the bag, you also have order thanks to two separate compartments.

Stable and versatile in a striking look

And because your Napoleone is to accompany you for decades through thick and thin, it is made of the finest Italian cowhide leather with stable stitching – handmade from a Swiss manufactory. The zippers and the comfortable, adjustable nylon carrying strap are also stable. Adjustable so you can carry your bag across your belly, across your back or around your hips.

Now all you have to do is to choose: The Napoleone is available in smooth leather, black or maroon brown. Or black in crocostyle. So you are ready for your next trip.

Slimly packed on the way “Palamita”

You have your next appointment in the city or are somewhere else on the move? Sure, you like to carry the most important things with you. Preferably without your remaining pockets bursting at the seams. In any case, everything should be within easy reach. And yes, the bag should also look great, of course, made of beautiful material and top workmanship.

Cocconero designed the Palamita, traced in its form to the fish of the same name. The solution: A bag that is worn directly on the body. You can wear it over your clothes or underneath, for example under your jacket or coat. It’s safer in a crowd, too. The weight is not a factor here anyway.

Compact for everything important

So you have the most important things with you on the way. Smartphone, wallet, glasses, keys, and one or two additional items – wherever you are, downtown, or somewhere on your journey.


The Palamita is compact and at the same time extremely versatile. Outside it has two compartments, one with zipper and one with button closure. Two separate compartments inside the bag also ensure the desired order.

Differently wearable design

And because your Palamita will be your companion for decades to come, it is made of the finest Italian cowhide leather with stable stitching – handmade from a Swiss manufactory. The zippers and the comfortable, adjustable nylon carrying strap are also durable. You adjust your bag so that you can carry it across your belly, across your back or around your hips.

Now you have the choice: The Palamita comes in smooth leather, black or maroon brown. Or black in crocostyle. This will get you ready for your next city trip.

Knotty ClutchBags Are The Future Of Bag Design, Interview With Saif Taj

Knotty ClutchBags Are The Future Of Bag Design, Interview With Saif Taj

Saif Taj – co-founder at Knotty and Tazeen Saif – Designer at Knotty

Saif Taj noticed a gap in the market – the need for a small, versatile, all-in-one bag to suit both men and women. From this realization, he co-founded Knotty, a bespoke bag company specializing in quirky, practical designs.

We got the chance to speak with Saif to find out more about his unique designs and how they represent the future of fashion.

Knotty ClutchBags. Dress to Impress!

Bags are dotted and T’s are crossed. Knotty ClutchBags

1 — What is the inspiration behind creating this project?

Clutches and folios are on the rise even with men as people want to carry light and have their everyday business utility items available on the go. In addition to this, people prefer having a single bag to meet all their needs – whether they’re going to a business meeting or having a casual day out. I realized that no multi-purpose bag like this was on the market, and decided to create one. So yes – it’s a clutch, a folio and a laptop bag all in one! This concept really sets us apart.

2  — Why does this need to exist in the world?

We live in an age where convenience is essential. A bag like ours, which has an easy-grab pen pocket and dual slots on the rear for storing and swapping business cards, can provide great value to consumers. I know this because the concept for these features struck me when I was out traveling – I would reach for my pen and business cards and struggle to find them. And people buy laptop bags based on their tastes, and colours and designs are generally pretty similar across brands. So we decided to make our designs really unique.


3  — Why is this better than other solutions on the market?

Because it’s forward-thinking. The world we live in is fast turning from micro to nano-sized. We want to shake up standard designs whilst eliminating excessive weight and size, without compromising on quality, design, and features. Our Knotty ClutchBag does this.

After working on countless designs over the past few years, my wife and I came up with 20 designs that suit the needs of every modern man and woman. Our multi-purpose bag is durable and fashionable, made with 100% premium, genuine cow leather. It features a minimalist design and maximum utility, with 14 Knice Features on a simple stitched piece of leather. We were inspired by wanting to make something that works with what people are wearing right now.

4  — ClutchBags haven’t existed until now – it’s being introduced for the first time.

Yes! We are so proud to have made such a revolutionary bag design. It also fits both laptops and tablets of up to 13.3. inches – it’s incredibly light and slim.

Summary

Fashion is just as important for men as it is for women. After all, men like to look good and impress friends or colleagues with their image too. Choosing the right clothes is not always easy though which makes finding the best fashion tips wise. While much attention is given to what happens above the waist in men’s fashion, it is also essential to get it right below the waist as well. If you are looking for some pointers here, the below should give you a great headstart.

Buy a pair of cool boots

If you want to wow people with your look then the shoes you walk around in are key. Forget standard trainers or formal brogues though – a great fashion trend right now is rocking some awesome men’s boots. Boots are not only comfortable to wear and stylish to look at but they are very versatile. They can be equally at home in the office or on a night out with friends!

Try out a leather belt with buckle

Although wearing a belt may seem a small thing, the effect it has on how good you look is much bigger. It is also pretty handy if your trousers or jeans are a little too big! Belts give you chance to express your individual style and also help to give your whole outfit a real lift. Leather is the best sort to go for here as it not only looks better but will last longer. Choosing a belt with a distinctive metal buckle will also help to make you look more interesting and stand out from the crowd.

Why not go smart-casual with trendy jeans?

If you are looking to change your look up a bit, why not invest in some smart jeans to dazzle people with? The really great thing about this tip is that they will come in useful for a whole range of situations. For the office, you can team them with a tucked-in shirt for that professional vibe while you can go more informal on a night out by pairing them with a statement t-shirt. Key to making this work is finding the cut of jean that works best for you and also choosing the colour carefully.

Don’t overlook your socks

As with a belt, some men can totally underestimate how big an impact the socks they wear have. The major two things to remember here are to wear the right colour with the right outfit while also remembering there are many types of sock to try out. Even changing your normal plain black for a patterned grey will add some instant style to your appearance. In terms of wearing the right sock for the right outfit, the main thing to avoid is wearing white sport socks with formal trousers/shoes. These just do not look right!

Below the waist can make or break your look

The important thing to take from all this is how key the clothes you wear below the waist are to your image. Making the right choices here can help you get noticed for all the right reasons. If you need a few pieces of fashion advice in this area, the above should help.

Haofa Tourbillon, Can Luxury Be For Everyone?

Published

on

Haofa Tourbillon
Watches aren’t just for the sake of timekeeping. Sometimes, you also want them to look good, classy, elegant and of course, expensive. That’s why there’s this thing called “style,” right? Well, that’s the same principle when it comes to watches. And what is the best statement to get with your wrist? Right wearing a tourbillon watch. But what are these tourbillon watches? And more important what makes them cost more than a house.

Haofa Tourbillon Breaks the Chain of (Crazy) Expensive Watches

There weren’t any affordable tourbillon watches — until now.

Haofa, a Hong Kong tourbillon watch company, made sure that it’s premium and quality luxury watches don’t need to cost a house! Why? Well, it’s because the company doesn’t have to pay for the expensive branding, marketing, and other unnecessary costs that jack up the price of all tourbillon (especially Swiss-made) watches.

You can buy Chinese tourbillon at an inch of the price compared to other brands and you still get the elegance, class, precision, and quality you’ve always clamored for. That’s what makes today’s Haofa tourbillons really good.

Take for example the Montblanc 4810 ExoTourbillon Slim that’s priced at a jaw-dropping $34,500. That, however, pales in comparison to the Greubel-Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon that retails for a gargantuan price of $815,000! Then compare that with Haofa Tourbillon, a Chinese tourbillon watch that speaks of premium quality and elegance at just a minuscule $1,000! This makes it one of the best affordable tourbillon watches out there, if not the best.

Knowing More About Haofa Tourbillon Watches

After great success in the Asian market, the CEO of Haofa decided to expand to the global market.

In an interview, the Haofa CEO said, “We have been making watches since 1996 with great pride and dignity, and I believe the times in China are changing. The world will not anymore only know us for cheap products but for the quality, we can create for just a fraction of our competitors’ prices.”

Let’s face it. Getting a tourbillon watch is downright expensive. That’s if you go with the traditional brands made from Switzerland and other European countries.

But with globalization in our midst, and the fact that tourbillons don’t anymore need to be expensive, you can now get one for as much as half the price compared to the common tourbillon watches you know of.

That’s where Haofa tourbillon watches kick in.

Although the movements are not made from the oh-so-expensive country watchmaking country called Switzerland, you still don’t have to worry about its quality because these are made by an expert and professional watch company that has been making 80% of these swiss watches for the last 50 years.

Taking the “Made in Switzerland” branding off, but not sacrificing quality is also what makes this high-end Chinese tourbillon watch brand affordable.

How does that look?


Hoafa – G1007BE1 at €1.499,00 EUR https://www.houjon.com/collections/haofa-tourbillons-since-1996/products/hoafa-roman-low-heart-g1007be1

Haofa Skeleton Silver Bezel – 1035 €1.000,00 EUR https://www.houjon.com/collections/haofa-tourbillons-since-1996/products/skeleton-silver-1035 

Haofa Tourbillon – 1036 – €1.299,00 EUR https://www.houjon.com/collections/haofa-tourbillons-since-1996/products/tourbillon-cute-1036

Final Verdict on Haofa Tourbillon Watches

With Haofa tourbillon watches opening up to the worldwide market there is a change for everyone to own a luxurious watch like this. If you are one of the guys who are craving for a tourbillon watch but knows that they can’t afford to get one, then the arriving of the Haofa watch brand could be the best thing that happened to you!

They’re less than $2,000. Well, that might still be a big amount to most, but nonetheless, if you would buy a swiss one it would cost the same as a penthouse in Hong Kong.

Therefore, I suggest you take a look at Haofa tourbillons made in China, their watches speak of unrivaled durability and quality as well as elegant class. Besides that, they are probably made with the same parts as their swiss competitors.

Just like the Japanese watch brands were ridiculed when they first came outside Tokyo, the Haofa brand is having the same starting troubles, people are afraid to leave their prejudices behind, but do you really want to pay that price for your ego? Of course, you will get more quality for an 800,000.- dollar watch as you will get for a $1000,- dollar watch with the same movement and looks. But will it be 800 times better?

We suggest you take a look at the brand while it’s still affordable.
