Top Tips on Choosing Linen Shirts

When the summer sun is at its worst, the best way to beat the heat is to go the natural route with your fabrics and fibers. So, whether you are dressing for a formal event or a casual one, consider linen shirts. The key factor that makes most men think twice before choosing linen shirts is the fact that they wrinkle. But if you let this stop you, you are losing out on all that linen has to offer, from the wide range of textures, weights and forms to colors and even natural, undyed fabric. This is one fabric that is easy to care for and extremely comfortable to wear.

How to Choose Linen Shirts

The long and lustrous fibers of the flax plan have been processed into linen, possibly since the time man decided to wear clothes! These fibers are dirt resistant, free of lint and much stronger than cotton. The natural wax in this fiber gives it a luster, unlike any other natural fiber. Linen is the choice summer, given its highly absorbent quality. Best of all, manufacturers have responded to the consumer’s concerns about wrinkling by developing methods, such as fusing synthetic resins with the flax fiber, to keep linen shirts looking crisp, yet soft, even with wear.

Now that we’ve convinced you that linen shirts are the way to go this summer, here are some of the things to look for while making a purchase:

$1·         Check the stitching: One thing that you should know about linen shirts is that this fabric makes every seam stand out. Therefore, the stitching should be seamlessly (pun not intended) integrated with the pattern and weave of the shirt. Whether there are pin-tucks, welt pockets or stitched hems, the stitching should follow the inherent geometry of the design. They type of stitching also varies with the weight of the fabric.

$1·         Pleats: This is one fabric that gives beautiful pleats. If folded properly lengthwise or across the grain, the shirt will not ripple at the pleats. Pleating will affect the way the garment falls over your body. Make sure you iron the pleats well to keep them from splaying open when you wear the garment.

Designers For Him: Keep it Cool Poolside


Staying stylish this summer is a breeze when you take a look at all the colorful and classy trends available for you to try. Don't be overwhelmed with all the choices, keep calm and be cool. Here are a few men's fashion choices that will make your summer wardrobe especially appealing, especially if you'll be spending a considerable amount of time by the pool.

Floral Prints

Designers like Marc Jacobs and Gucci have created a number of attractive t-shirts and shorts that display floral print for summer. These pieces give character to any beach-inspired outfit, and are best paired with a top or bottom in a subtle color. For instance, floral-print shorts, which should fall right above the knee, featuring bright shades of orange, red and green, should be paired with a brown or tan tank top for a fresh and updated summer look.

Will the new Ford F-150 Aluminum Design Carry Over to Global Ranger?

Will the new Ford F-150 Aluminum Design Carry Over to Global Ranger?

At the 2014 North American International Auto Show, we saw the future of Ford’s pickup design – aluminum and a lot of it. Through various displays, Ford showed how the truck could handle a beating and still deliver great fuel economy. One question that didn’t get addressed is: what about the Global Ford Ranger? Wouldn’t it benefit from the weight savings and improved fuel economy of aluminum design?

Ford launched the Global Ranger in 2011 as a compact, diesel-powered truck that left many then- U.S. Ranger owners salivating. The truck is being offered in more than 180 countries and is not available in the U.S. Basically, Ford figured that many U.S. Ranger customers would simply step up to the F-150. That hasn’t exactly happened and Ford has taken its share of criticism from automotive writers/experts and its own fans for not offering the Ranger in the U.S.

With the new F-150 being launched with a smaller Ecoboost engine it is mostly assured that Ford is still not considering bringing back the Ranger. (It may consider offering a small F-100 variant although that remains to seen). Ford says that the mid-size truck market in North America doesn’t make sense for them and don’t see a feasible way to build a Ford Ranger that would fit into its product portfolio.

In other countries like Australia, the “ute” pickups are quite popular. In fact, the used car market in Australia for the Global Ranger is quite strong . These utilitarian pickups don’t have the full-size competitors that are made in North America and thus, the business plan to build them for those markets is much stronger.

This begs the question though, if the aluminum-based design of the new F-150 is so superior, could it benefit the Global Ranger? The answer is undoubtedly yes. Will Ford build it? Most likely not.

Pop Art and Men’s Fashion

Pop art and fashion have gone hand in hand for years, dating back to the 1950s. Men’s fashion has seen a steady increase graphic, printed and patterned clothing over the past few years, with pop art being at the forefront of this. Brands like FLY53 have had demonstrated their passion for pop art since the beginning.

Pop art takes the mundane and expresses this through fashion

We can’t discuss pop art without mentioning arguably the most famous artist of this genre, Andy Warhol. Warhol fused art and fashion to create pop art, to bring together celebrity culture, fashion, art, and advertising. Even in fashion today, Warhol’s work is featured on tops, bags, shoes, and anything else you can think of, with designers paying tribute to the man.

Whether it’s a printed t-shirt of comic strips, a jumper with a famous quote on, the layering up of a red jumper and blue shirt, men’s fashion is very much being influenced by pop art, and this is particular relevant right now, as fashion is becoming increasingly influenced by art to expand and develop new ways for people to express their personality through what they wear.

Being bold through the fusion of bright colours is very much the order of the day for men’s fashion at the moment. This type of striking symbolism is connected to pop art; just think about the Warhol soup cans, or the Marilyn Monroe print, both used a mixture of bold colours to stand out, and draw people in, so to that end, men’s fashion can very much relate to this technique of boldness through fashion.
