ETHNIC WEAR – DIFFERENT KURTA PYJAMA STYLES

Kurta Pyjama is one of the basic clothing of the Indian men. This outfit consists of two pieces of matching garments(usually). The first garment is a kurta that is kind of a long shirt that almost touches the knees.  The second one is the pajama or pyjama, which is a lightweight trouser. This outfit is worn on formal occasions and can also be worn casually. Infact, there are many Indian men who prefer wearing it as a sleepwear. I am talking about punjabi kurta-pyjama in this article which i wear.

HISTORY OF KURTA PYJAMA

punjabi kurta pyjama

The term ‘pyjama’ crept into the English language from Hindustani, a language from which Urdu and Hindi originated. The word originally derives from the Persian word ‘Payjama’ meaning ‘leg garment’. It was due to the British colonialization of India that the term ‘pajama’ and the dress spread to other parts of the world. In India, one will often find politicians wearing white starched Kurta Pajama. As a tradition, civilians wear this dress during festivities and other special occasions like holi, religious ceremony, etc. Punjabi kurta pyjama is common among people in punjab and pakistan.

 

TYPES OF FABRICS

Only soft material fabrics are used for making kurta pajama as it is supposed to be a comfortable loose fitting dress. Though good quality cotton is the most common material used for making kurta pajama, other fabrics like silk and satin are also used. All styles, wheteher it is punjabi kurta pyjama or some other cultures are made form these fabrics.

Normally adults prefer wearing the kurta and pajama in neutral shades, as they give a very dignified look. Children, on the other hand, wear this dress in varied hues and patterns. Punjabi jutti and Kolhapuri chappals are the most preferred footwear for this type of attire.

Adidas Yeezy Shoes – Kanye West Stylish Sneakers Designs

Demand for Kanye West‘s sold-out sneaker design sneakers has created a hype culture. What’s so interesting in Adidas Yeezy? Let’s find it out!

Adidas Yeezy Boost is the official collaboration sneaker by Kanye West and Adidas. The Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost “Light Brown” was the first sneaker to release from this collaboration on February 14, 2015. The second shoe to release was the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 “Turtle Dove”. “Yeezy Season 1” was the first apparel collection to release from this collaboration. It was officially released on October 29, 2015. The Adidas Yeezy 950 Boost was also part of this collection and it was released in four different colorways.

In sneaker market full of collaborations, Yeezys have become more innovative after they debuted in 2015. One of the famous CEO said that, “This a lifestyle and everlasting shoe. It’ has arrived at a point in time where people are busy running every time. They need to wear a shoe that’s comfortable and also looks good”.

WHY TO BUY YEEZY:

The Yeezy’s high tech Sneaker Boost sole and its unique design does give an amazing look. Adding “Kanye cool factor” and above all else their limited quantity gives it more importance in market. It’s not at all surprising that they’ve managed to command such high resale prices over the past two and a half years.

This composite image shows an authentic Yeezy, left, beside a replica.

KANYE WEST INTERVIEW REGARDING YEEZY:

In an interview in 2015 Kanye West, speaking about his new Yeezy Boost line of sneakers said, “I don’t want the price to be around $350. I also don’t want to play this Sneaker culture game where people be reselling them for high prices.” It’s been two years since Yeezy Boosts had hit the market but Kanye West’s signature sneakers are nearly impossible to buy.  But West’s signature shoes are incredibly easy to resell and that too at a very healthy profit.

Kanye West

PRICE OF YEEZY:

If you’re planning to buy original Yeezy Boost 350, you’ll pay the following price: The Pirate Blacks in size 9 almost costs $1,220. Turtledoves in size 9 is $2,150. Oxford Tans in size 10: $1,390. As Adidas expands the Yeezy Boost line with new silhouettes like the 700, will re-sellers still make a huge amount of profit? Or will we finally see Kanye’s dream of Yeezy’s for all? You better know the answer.

HIGHER PRICE OF SNEAKER:

The answer to why the Yeezy price is boosting is a complicated one.  The Adidas Yeezy resellers of the world want some different outcomes. These re-sellers are happy with an easy 400-500% return on investment. Adidas will certainly be very concerned about this re-selling culture. The sneaker sold in a secondary market doesn’t make Adidas any money.

However, the dynamics behind the Yeezy’s exclusivity suggest that neither party, much to Kanye’s dismay, can afford an accessible Yeezy. Re-sellers, despite their sometimes unsavory methods, are actually the backbone of the Yeezy’s position as a hyped-up sneaker. In other words, Adidas, Kanye West and re-sellers all need each other.

YEEZY FIRST COPY/RE-SELLER MARKET:

Like stocks, the Yeezy reseller market operates on principles of risk and reward. Josh Luber, CEO of StockX, explains that if you gather as much information as possible on sneaker prices and “trading volume”, a typical market will emerge. “For any sneaker on the secondary market,” he explains, “the resale price over time looks almost exactly like a Nike swoosh.”

 

As the countdown clock strikes zero, there’s a rush to the checkout window. With the right combination of skill and a blessing from the adidas.com servers, the shoes are theirs. For those who only want a new pair of sneakers, that’s where the process ends. But for re-sellers, who oftentimes will use “bots” (computer-generated scripts that automate the checkout process) to secure their plunder, this is where the fun begins. They flock to various resale platforms, where they sell their Yeezys for as much as they can.

ADIDAS YEEZY 700 AND 750s STORY

In August 2017, Kanye West dropped a new sneakerthe Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 with basically no warning. Available only as a pre-order, and only on Kanye’s own supply website. The shoes remained in stock for almost an entire day (something unheard of for any planned Yeezy releases).

They were a colorful, retro-inspired runner style with the nickname “Wave Runner.” For several months it was speculated that the pre-order would be the only ever release of the Wave Runner . Since then, the $1,000+ resale price of the sneakers has reflected that scarcity. But this week the multi-color Yeezy is back, and this time for a proper online release.

yeezy_700

This release, unlike others, is simpler than just about any other in recent sneaker history. There’s no raffles, no special apps, and no contests to enter. There’s just you, a link, and the vague hope. Which also makes this the latest way Kanye West is trying to shake up the way sneakers are dropped in 2018. Think way back to the OG Yeezy 700 pre-order, or to the bundle pack offered late last year that included the new Yeezy 500 “Moon Yellow” .

WHAT ADIDAS THINKS ABOUT THIS CULTURE?

From Adidas’s point of view the resale market’s astronomical prices continue to remind buyers just how desirable these shoes are. Meanwhile, resellers can only thrive if Adidas continues to provide a desirable, hard-to-obtain product that can command a premium. If Adidas made enough Yeezys for everyone, the resale market would crater. But it’s fair to wonder if every sneaker fan on the planet would still be lusting after every new release if they were suddenly easy to obtain. In Lew’s words, “[The resale market] is all about hype, and right now Kanye and Adidas have it.”

Yeezy MArket

The ploy seemed to work. Hype for the initial release was off the charts, which in turn allowed resellers to capitalize. The restock allowed more hopeful customers who missed out the first time to scoop up a pair—but it didn’t completely tank the resale market.

MY PERSONAL OPINIONS:
  1. It looks stylish and cool as well.
  2. Only by wearing these shoes you can feel the difference in your confidence level.
  3. It is versatile and suits every occasion.
  4. As far as the looks are concerned, it provides more of a street style kind of appearance.
  5. The color varieties in Yeezy’s are immense.
  6. The one color soft Yeezy’s improves the casual look.
  7. One problem that occurs is regarding heels. The slight higher edges in the sneakers does make your feet a bit lifted up. This sometimes makes you feel a bit tiring.

ON THAT NOTE

Whenever you walk you should feel comfortable and look stylish at the same time. The shoes in your feet decides how much confidence will you be carrying with yourself. So do make yourself feel comfortable and don’t get overwhelmed by this hype culture.

As i wrote this article it also has incresed my urge for Yeezy’s even more. I feel like i should have all the pair’s of Adidas Yeezy once in a lifetime. I will surely work hard to achieve this secondary goal. Whenever i accomplish it i will be informing you all through the article. Till then stay safe and stay connected.

There’s something uniquely empowering about it – making you feel like you could wrestle a bear, catch a fish with your bare hands or partake in other such manly activities. Yet there is more to growing a beard than simply throwing away your razor – it takes time and dedication. It also requires an ability to resist the urge to scratch. Here are some helpful hints on how to grow a thick, lustrous and healthy beard.

I will be talking about, how to grow healthy beard. Different beard styles according to face structure will be soon up on the blog.

  • WHAT ACTUALLY IS HEALTHY BEARD?

Healthy in terms of beard points to a thick and in shape beard. The beard doesn’t need to look patchy and not even out of shape.

The shiny beard is what men are looking for. The thick beard along with a shine will surely give you an upper hand in raising your personality. Everyone knows how beard trends are evolving. Some of you might have some issues in managing the beard.

  • STAY HYDRATED:

You might be a bit surprised but beard does have some relation with hydration. You should drink plenty of water in order to stay hydrated. We all know being hydrated provides a shine on our face and therefore it has some effect on beard too.

  • WASHING BEARD:

Don’t let you beard be dirty. This is because the pores doesn’t open up and beard tends to look unity and doesn’t grow properly.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will surely help you some way or the another. Good hygiene will boost your inner hormones boost up.

  • HIGH TESTOSTERONE LEVEL:

Yes! this is one of the most important aspect when it you need to grow a healthy beard. The hormonal level decides how healthy and thick beard that you can grow.

You must have realized how fast body hair grows when body tends to produce more testosterone. This means you need to work hard and hit the gym in order to raise the hormones level. You will see a drastic change in a couple of months for sure.

  • LET BEARD GROW:

Most   of the people tends to make mistake by trimming/shaving the beard on regular basis. This won’t let the healthy beard grow and therefore you won’t be able to get the required results.

  • Get plenty of rest and relaxation:

Sleep is important as it allows cells to repair and regenerate – which is essential for healthy hair growth. Your overall health and well-being depends on getting enough sleep, so you should try your best to get 7-8 hours of good quality sleep each night. You should also try to minimize your stress levels as much as possible, as high stress levels have been linked with hair loss.

  • FOCUS ON DIET:

“KITCHEN IS THE HOSPITAL AND YOUR DIET IS THE MEDICINE”.

Everything you eat will have impact on your body in some. Taking proper nutrition will help you release ‘feel good hormone’.

  • FOOD ESSENTIALS:

  1. Green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale, are also a good addition to your diet. This will help your body to throw out estrogen (the female hormone), leaving a higher level o testosterone in your body.
  2. You should avoid high-sugar junk foods, as these provide no nutritional content and will contribute to weak, brittle hair.
  • ESSENTIAL VITAMINS:

  1. Supplements which help in growing healthy beard include vitamin B1, B6 and B12, along with beta-carotene, flax seed oil and nettle oil.
  2. There is also a multivitamin called Vita-Beard which is specifically designed to promote healthy beard and hair. It allows beard to grow at fast rate and thick. It also helps to minimize itching, as it regulates skin’s oil production. You can purchase it here.

  • MY SECRET OF HEALTHY BEARD(WORKS):

I massage coconut-oil while going to bed. This helps hair grow faster and provides shine. This method is fully functional and will give instant shine while growth does take a time. The thick beard takes time to grow if you are fighting with patchy beard.

I have been following this rule from past 1 year and it has good positive impact. Try this and send me the feedback. Just have patience and add this in your routine.

Digest it!     Growth and thickness of your beard depends largely on genetics……….

Unfortunately, there is no magical serum that will allow you to grow a wonderfully full and thick beard. The type of beard you will be able to grow will depend largely on genetics (thanks to my Dad!) and the natural levels of testosterone that your body produces. As a result, you will need to work with the facial hair you’ve are born with genetically. These methods are just the kind of addition in natural processes that can boost your growth. Do follow all these steps to maximize its health and encourage healthy beard.

Gym Clothes To Look Good During the Workout

There’s no doubt that gym clothes has recently taken a life of its own in men’s fashion too. The modern men nowadays need to take care of their gym attire. Check out this complete guide on the gym clothes to wear both during and after the workout. Also covering some common mistakes that men make in the gym.

Knowing what to wear in the gym can be a tough task for some people. It’s no wonder the accessibility of gym fashion and gym attire is synonymous with it’s desirability. Workout gear and gym clothes for men brings the substance with itself. so where do you start?

Black And Grey Gym Gear

Let me guide you how to look good at the gym.

Men’s Gym Clothes: Uppers

T-shirt that fits loose enough to allow you room for a good workout while simultaneously being snug enough to give an air of tailored slickness is always a good place to start. If your first thought was a white tank, kindly reconsider as this is not knowing what to wear to a gym.

While cotton is great for the warmer months, a synthetic, long sleeved t-shirt may be better during winter. Made from chemicals, some synthetic fabrics can have superior qualities to natural ones.

Men’s Gym Clothes: Bottoms

The question is shorts, sweats or tracks? That depends on what your workout will consist of. For cardio related exercise, stick to shorts – again, the rule of fitted but not snug is a good one to live by.

There are a few ‘alternative’ trends popping up at the moment, with techno-colored harem pants as the poster garment for edgy cool. It ensures you look smart at the gym without drawing unnecessary attention to yourself or looking like you care too much.

gym clothes

The classic jogger springs to mind when you think of alternative active wear. The one thing all these pieces have in common is their crisp aesthetic. Whether fashion conscious or not. Whether you prefer black fitted shorts, cotton fleece sweats the choice is yours, but take the weather, comfort level and type of workout you’ll be doing into consideration.

Men’s Gym Clothes: Footwear

It should go without saying: trainers. There’s a lot to be said for comfort in footwear for the gym. After all, most of the effort required in workouts is heavily dependent on your feet. Proper workout attire for men is definitely worth the investment.

The Best Trainers To Wear At The Gym

If you’d prefer working out more than once a fortnight, a great pair of trainers (or two) will surely be worth the investment. But before you go off purchasing some serious kit, bear in mind that you don’t have to go completely pro.

It may seem like a good idea during that final week before payday, but try to avoid cheap alternatives to the real deal. They’ll only let you down by tearing down and you will have to purchase them again.

Men’s Gym Accessories

Seems strange, but gym attire has a couple of essential add-ons no gym session would complete without.

Nothing comes close to a good pair of socks as far as comfort and durability are concerned. It would be easy to overlook the fact that your socks work together with your trainers. It keeps sweat, discomfort and potential injury (okay, blisters) to a minimum.

Other Accessories to consider would be a durable but stylish gym bag. If you’re feeling like keeping things relatively understated, a simple black backpack can do the trick. Otherwise a slightly more stylish duffle bag would definitely grab you some style points.

What To Avoid

It’s pretty obvious what the do’s and don’ts of gym wear and gym dress is, if you need a little more guidance, however, check out our full rundown on what you shouldn’t be wearing to the gym.

  • Casuals: It’s a public gym, not a Frat boys’ after after party. Yes, gym attire is still linked to casual attire somewhat, but there’s a line.
  • Men Leggings: This means men in leggings, or ‘trousers’ so tight they cinch in places we’d rather not see them cinched.
  • Short Shorts: For reasons similar to the above. ‘Cool gym clothes’ are tricky to come by, and short shorts won’t add any credit to your look.
  • Over-sized clothes: An inconvenience, because if you’re shy you may feel more comfortable in less intrusive garments. The truth is, however, it just looks sloppy.
  • Previously Worn/Bad odour Gym Outfits: It seems wasteful to you to put clothes in a machine remember you’d have sweated in them. Ideally, a considerable amount. It’s much more hygienic (for yourself and others) to opt for a fresh outfit per gym session.
  • Cleavage outfits: Yes, men wearing tank tops so low that, depending on the angle and the direction of the wind, you may see nipple. This is the creepiest thing you can ever do.
  • 5-leave-jewelry-at-home
  • No towel: Again, hygiene is of the utmost importance. Leaving a sloppy mess as evidence of your epic workout is rude and inconsiderate. It’s best to remember to bring a s mall towel with you to the gym. Your hands are full of germs and you can’t even think of using them to clean your face. This will cause skin diseases for sure.

Men’s Grooming: The Gym Essential

Before working out make sure that you don’t have a bad body odour. This can lead to bad impression among your training partners. So be hygienic and have bath twice. I suggest you to have a bath in the morning and once after a workout(if you workout in the evening). Apply deodorant just after you had the bath for the first time in the day.

Keeping yourself fresh and clean after you’ve had a particularly tough training session in the gym is vital. The build up of bacteria you produce when you sweat can lead to bad impression. So make sure you have a wash afterwards to get rid of them and apply deodorant after a bath.

Gym Clothes After The Workout/Post Gym Style

Don’t think I am going to tell you that you need to carry one more bag for the post workout style. It’s really basic,so keep reading.

Feel free to wear a sweat shirt or sports coat to smarten up the relaxed look of cool gym wear and your best gym clothes. To add more style to your look you could also put a cap on or or or or a pair of shades (never ever both).

The Best Hoodies And Sweatshirts For The Gym

Darker trainers work best with with neutral, dark joggers, track pants or knee length shorts. You can keep a sporty look with plain white trainers. Looking sharp enough to wander the streets, post gym is less about a complete wardrobe change. It is more about a small touch to give an overall cool impression.

SUMMARY:

If somehow you missed the key points in the article, don’t worry! These points are more than enough to make a good impression in the gym. Follow these and it is more than enough.

  1. If you can smell yourself, everyone else can, too.
  2. Pants were never cool, will never be cool.
  3. Your huffing shouldn’t be louder than your playlist.
  4. Keep the volume on 3, wheezy. Wear flip-flops in the locker room. Keep your fungal problem to yourself.gym headphones

Men’s Outfits for this summer – look stylish and trendy this season

I am pretty sure that everyone is bit concerned about how to deal with summers. The high temperature does make you sweat a lot and therefore you feel a bit annoyed. Summer outfit and fashion requires lot of attention if they need to go hand by hand for men. Looking stylish becomes easy when the temperatures falls. You can let your inner lumberjack shine, and chances are you’ll look fine. The outfit doesn’t seem to be as elegant as it should be.

Don’t worry! Here is a complete guide for you.

You must be wondering about shorts, polo’s, light colored T-shirts. No doubt, these are essentials but this is not complete. Whether you want edgy, athletic, rugged, or street style look, these Men’s Summer outfit will surely make you look awesome.

Enough of the talk. Let’s begin!

Men’s Summer Outfit Essentials

Men’s Shirts/Men’s T-shirts:

Summer outfit especially shirts need’s to be light and elegant. Don’t go with dark shades as they tends to absorb more heat and spoils the look.

summer outfit

Invest in some t-shirts that have a good quality stuff. I suggest you not to go with those 6/10 packs of T-shirts. Not even those designer or rubber paints T-shirts work very well during summer season.

CONCERNED ABOUT TANNING/SUNBURN?

To save yourself from tanning:

  1. use the sunscreen.
  2. Full sleeve T-shirts are the best option when you are going out.
  3. Be hydrated all the time. Drink as much water as you can.

Following both these steps will do wonders for you. Caring for the skin is the most important aspect. You don’t ever want to suffer from any skin disease while being fashionable. So these steps are more than enough.

If the situation calls for something with a little classic look, you have these three options:

  • polo’s,
  • long sleeve button ups
  • short sleeve button ups

Polo’s work well with chino shorts, but you will be encroaching on preppy, which is not a bad thing. This is surely the versatile summer outfit.

summer outfit

The fitted polo is the summer style must-have that helps to show off your muscles and at the end of the day, simply looks more tailored. You’re not looking for the tightest shirt out there. You’re looking for the fitted polo with a slim, tailored body that makes it look like the shirt fits you perfectly.

Men’s Shorts

The preppy style has enjoyed a high fashion renaissance in past years, which means men’s chino shorts have taken a bold turn. This summer outfit is trending nowadays.

summer outfit

Pastels are hot, but if you want to steer away from a creepy look, change up your colors. Khaki is a neutral option, but you don’t have to play it safe. Black or navy shorts can add new life to your wardrobe of summer outfit.

A pair of men’s athletic shorts, be it mesh or sweat, is an easy option when the situation is casual. Athleisure is a legitimate summer outfit, so don’t feel like they can only be worn with tees and tanks.

summer outfit

Branch out and try to work them into your social attire. As with all shorts, avoid overly baggy and long choices. You don’t want to look you hopped out of your dad’s 70s basketball photos, but just above the knee is always a solid bet.

The third option is a bit controversial – Men’s Denim Shorts.

Don’t fall into the John Cena trap. If you must wear shorts, make a well fitting pair of cutoffs. For length, don’t go overboard in either direction, and most importantly, don’t think you can put it on with every other summer outfit.

A casual look that can be dressed up with a nice shirt, but don’t think you can show up to your boss’s office.

summer outfit

These shorts should come in a range of 7 to 9 inches for the in-seam, and they should be tailored through your thighs and upper leg much like the body of the fitted polo shirt. Try on a few pairs to find out which ones feel most comfortable to you.

Once you find a pair that fits, buy them in multiple solid colors — from peach or salmon to khaki and navy. These will be your go-to staple for all summer has to offer.

 

Men’s Pants:

Discussing pants in a summer outfit might seem silly. Once it hits about 30 degrees celsius, shorts are acceptable (and expected) in almost every situation. But you may find yourself slipping on some jeans this summer.

summer outfit

Put your dark wash indigo’s away till fall, and try out some lighter shades. Avoid “true blue” and anything acid wash, but otherwise feel free to experiment on that end of the spectrum.

If a bold choice like that is not up your alley, go with black. Although it seems counterproductive, black jeans is also a good summer outfit choice..

Men’s Shoes

You have a lot of options in terms of footwear. Summer shoes like vans or boat shoes can go with just about anything. Keep your Vans’ colors subtle this season. White is always appropriate, while still giving a bit of a pop.

summer outfit

That doesn’t mean your sneakers should be boring – black and white are easy colors that work, but a sleek pair of low profile sneakers in any colorway can work and when done right add an amazing pop to any summer outfit.

summer outfit

Are you a man looking for some sweet summer style? Look no further than our quick guide of summer essentials that will have you primed and ready for everything from that casual cookout to the pool party of the season.

With their origins dating back to sailors who didn’t want to slip on the boat deck, boat shoes today are the perfect summer shoe that give you style and comfort.

If you’re going to buy one pair of shoes for the summer season, let the boat shoe be yours. After you walk around in them for a few weeks, they’ll begin to mold to your feet and give you a soft, comfortable step everywhere you go this summer!

summer outfit

Yeezy’s can also be the best option if you have purchased it. Adidas Yeezy comes in wide varierty of colors and different styles. Read the last article about Adidas Yeezy in detail.

TRIP FROM CHANDIGARH TO RISHIKESH: TRAVEL IN STYLE GUIDE

trip to rishikesh

The Rishikesh trip was very fascinating. It’s the best place for those of you who are willing to travel deep into the woods and enjoy the nature. Travelling to these calm and composed places always feels good.

trip to rishikesh

It was a instant plan. The idea struck in one of the mind and it then flowed within the friends group and it all happened. We friends decided to take the bus from Chandigarh to reach Dehradun. It was 3 days trips as we explored all the amazing places. It’s almost impossible for you to resist yourself from enjoying the water and woods. You will fall in love with  most of the natural things out there.

I preferred not to carry bunch of goods and clothes with me. I just wanted to explore and feel the nature rather than carrying goods along with me. As a student we do have to look at the budget.

This place is not at all expensive. You can get rooms at a low cost and then share it with friends. The food is also not very costly and you can get all types of food there. The locals are very humble and they help you in every way. The atmospheric solitude makes up for upmarket accommodation, and that is a great bargain for a travel-hungry soul.

TRAVEL OUTFIT

I just took joggers and shorts along with two T-shirts which was more than enough. You can comfortably walk in sports shoes if you are not willing to trek. I didn’t carry jeans as it wasn’t required. Carrying crocs along worked really well as shoes weren’t required at every site.

The first thing you should keep in your mind is he color and fitting of the jacket that you are buying. You need to perfectly analyze the fitting because you can’t purchase it time and again. According to the budget you should be purchasing a perfect piece for you that you could wear for years.

Useful information related to grooming and hair styling!

Taking the whole personality into consideration, Hairstyle is normal volume quiff. I don’t really spend to much time on my hair and beard styling just before going out. It all stars when my day ends. You will never get the required hairstyle instantly if you don’t care about it when you are indoors. Even if you get one then it would surely be not that attractive or the shine won’t be the same. So do give some time to your hair and beard so that it heals. I would be covering the grooming/styling tips in upcoming articles.
