Man Fashion: New Era Caps for Fashionista Like You

When it comes to summer, the new era caps are the most popular choice of hip hop and sports fanatics. So what are new era caps basically?

The new era caps are the largest sports-licensed headwear company in the United States. The company is the premier cap provider for MLB, as well as a number of NBA and NHL franchises, plus a handful of major collegiate athletic programs.

Before we go further to commit our money into this fanatic caps, let look at what are the primary buying tips.

One of the first things that you should check is the quality of workmanship of your New Era cap. Examine the top of the hat and look at the top button. The button should be centered with the seams. If it is not, there is a good possibility that the cap is a fake.

In addition, check the quality of the stitching on the cap. On all authentic New Era Caps, the stitching will be smooth, dense, and tight. A good way to examine the quality of the stitching is to check out the stitching of the New Era logo. If it is uneven, crooked and/or seems to contain gaps between stitches, the hat is most likely a fake. Since the logo is one of the top branding factors, you can bet that New Era gets this right every time.

Next, check out the profile of your New Era 59Fifty fitted cap. The crown should be high and rounded. Inferior quality, imitation caps almost always tend to have a much lower profile and can actually look a bit flat across the crown.

You should also examine the New Era tag that is stitched on the inside of the cap. The edges should be stitched evenly, and the tag should lie smooth with no bunching at the edges. Crooked stitching that goes beyond boundaries most likely indicates a fake. You should also check for the New Era hologram on the underside of the brim of the hat. If your cap is missing this, it is probably an imitation.

In short, please put some common sense, time to examine these new era caps before you shelll out your hard earned money.

Man Fashion Tips: How to Spot Fake Levi's 501 Jeans?

There has been an outbreak of knock-off items over the past few years. Started from clothing to handbags and shoes. Unfortunately, one of the with One of the most popular items of clothing has been Levi's. To Levi's fan like us, we find it extra careful when we get our jeans online.

Most imitate Levi's are 'Vintage' Levi's 501s with all or some of the details that make real vintage Levi jeans valuable. These can include:

-The Red Tab with capital 'E" which date real levi's to pre-1971

-V-Stitch near the top button. Another vintage characteristic

-Buckle on the rear (Buckleback)

-Bar tacked Rear Pockets

These imitate Levi's are mostly come from Asia countries where they are made with cheap labor and materials. The denim used for the most part is of average quality, if not better than average. But the hardware used: Buttons, rivets, etc. are normally of inferior quality.

A quick search on eBay will almost always reveal anywhere from 2 to 3 fake pieces to almost 100 in some cases. eBay seem to be doing very little in trying to remove these items from their site, or in fact, it is almost impossible to identify all these imitation. Nevertheless, we would like to share some of the obvious areas that you could spot easily.

1. Number on back of top button:

Almost always stamped '501' off-center or not stamped at all. While some non-vintage authentic Levi's 501s may have this stamped on them, vintage big 'E' will always have a single digit or letter stamped (6, 5, 2, W) or blank, but if it is blank, there are usually punch marks on it.

2. Elongated 'V-Stitch' on fly:

Another common characteristic of fakes

3. Rear Patch:

The rear patch on the right hip can also give clues to whether or not the garment is authentic.

4. Material:

If it is a hard leather like material, the jeans are suspect. Unless the jeans are from the 1930s and the patch has a 'jerky' look to it, very few other Levi's have or had a real leather like patch. Although this is not a surefire way of telling because some in the LVC (Levi vintage clothing line) and ones produced in places other than the United States (Japan, Canada for example) did actually come with a hard leather patch.

5. Labeling:

Another clue is the printing on the patch. If the patch material seems authentic, most times the printing is not. It is either off center, spelling mistakes, or barring all of that not being present they are labeled '501-0657' in black ink. If the jeans are anything other than black 501s from the 1980s - if they have that on the label than they are fake.

Of course talk is easy, but how to differentiate when come to actual piece? Thanks to jhahn1234 who shared a video in YouTube.

Man Fashion: How to Attract Women with Your Wardrobe?

These days more so than ever before, men are defined by their fashion sense. While older generations of men may have had their own fashionable styles and eras, there is no time better than now to express yourself through what you wear. And while the key to a woman's heart remains personality and charm, a first impression is almost always based upon one's looks. In other words, you are what you wear.

While this sounds a bit intimidating, it doesn't have to be, as gearing your wardrobe towards attracting women can be as easy as switching your socks. For others, it can mean overhauling the way they dress completely. First and foremost, the most important thing you can do for yourself to attract women is to wear clothing that fits you correctly. This may seem obvious, but many people actually walk around in clothes that are either too big or too small for them. Either way, it is far from flattering.

When putting together a wardrobe, diversity is important, but for men, consistency always wins. Have a favorite pair of pants? Pick up five pairs, all in different colors. Do the same for your favorite plain shirt, as well as your dress shirts. Dressing consistently says to the people you see on a daily basis that you've found your style and you're comfortable with it. Women like men who are confident; men who are comfortable with what they wear.

That being said, it doesn't hurt to have a clothing item in your arsenal that will turn heads. Not necessarily something outlandish, but something that the normal work-a-day businessman is not going to be seen wearing as he walks out of the coffee shop. Standing out from the crowd in a tasteful way is an excellent way to attract a woman's attention. This could be as simple as a quirky tie, a pair of sunglasses, or a stylish men’s ring.

Also important is to keep up with styles as they change. Many people are have gotten into the rut of buying an entire wardrobe worth of clothing and wearing it year after year until well after it goes out of style. If you show up at a party looking like you belong in the last decade, you may turn heads with the ladies, but it won't be for the reasons you want to. Staying on top of the latest trends in fashion shows women that you are confident in the way you dress and that you care about looking good.

All of this said, making yourself attractive to women is not a difficult thing to do. The most important thing you can do for yourself is to make sure that your appearance is neat and it looks like you put some effort - not a lot, just enough - into how you look for the day. Exude confidence, and chances are that women will be falling over you.
