    Men’s scarf guide part 1

    The history of the scarf, number 1:

    The scarf certainly has some religious connotations but has also enjoyed use for warmth, cleanliness and of course fashion. While many credits its history to use by the Terracotta soldiers in China, the scarf dates all the way back to ancient Rome where it was originally called a Sudarium, literally translated to mean “sweat cloth”. It was used in Rome for cleanliness, and the cloth scarf was often worn tied to the waist of the man, or loosely wrapped around the neck on warmer days. In the event of a formal affair, the scarf was almost always worn, and various grades of cloth could easily separate the affluent and wealthy members of society from the rest. The scarf was now seen on a daily basis as men would continually wear them out, both for cleanliness, but now, due to the separation of class, as a way to showcase their status or elitism in society.

    Breaking in boat shoes, number 2:

    If your leather is stiff, a good way to go about breaking in your new boat shoes is to get them wet. After all, they are meant to be worn around boats. Put on your shoes, get them wet and then let them dry wearing them. Others prefer to apply oil to their boat shoes until they are saturated. Then they wrap them in the newspaper and let them dry in the shade. The oil will soften the leather which in turn will allow you to break them in without the pain. The Chromexcel leather has already undergone this softening process with natural oils, so you can definitely skip that step. Bear in mind, though, everything you do to break in your new shoes is done at your own risk.

    Quality hallmarks of men’s underwear

    Quality hallmarks, number 1: Comfort

    Comfort is crucial when it comes to underwear because we wear it all day, every day. As such, the material has a huge impact on the comfort level but that aside, the cut, the pouch and the quality and positioning of the seams make a tremendous difference. Generally, women’s underwear seems to be more advanced because women usually want thin underwear that does not show through their pants. To reduce the number of seams, 360 degree knitted underwear has been introduced to the women’s underwear market but due to the pouch needed for men, they have not been present in the men’s underwear market. However, you will find that luxury men’s underwear brands now offer back knitted or cut thigh openings that do not unravel. Traditionally, you needed a seam for it not to unravel, but new advancements in knitting technology now allow for smooth leg openings. Overall, it will be interesting to see what innovation the men’s underwear industry will produce in the next few years.
