How To Pull Off The Biggest 2017 Men's Style Trends Without Looking Like An Idiot!

How To Pull Off The Biggest 2017 Men's Style Trends Without Looking Like An Idiot!

Dad Hats

The polo cap, or dad hat, has been a point of contention in menswear over the past few years. Music producers Mac DeMarco and Yung Lean taught us that it doesn’t always have to be a snapback perched atop your dome, but a lot of us got scared of the dad-hat silhouette during the normcore craze a couple of years ago.

Don’t be afraid, guys. It’s a great silhouette and can be a very flattering look for a lot of guys. And the trend isn’t showing any signs of slowing down this year. The key is to choose the right iteration; don’t just grab a Nakatomi Plaza 1988 cap from Goodwill and call it a day. Look to skate-inspired brands like Supreme, Dime or Raised By Wolves for a clean and well-constructed take on the dad hat.

Socks

Any self-respecting sneakerhead will tell you that you need no-show socks for a clean sneaker fit. Don’t listen to them. While no-shows (or no socks at all) still look decent with pinrolled selvedge denim and a nice low-cut sneaker, 2017 is going to see a lot more pairings of cropped pants with calf socks.

Minimal Watches

Here’s an easy one for you. These things are so damn easy to wear they will make any 'fit look clean. Pair with short sleeves, long sleeves, three-piece suits, t-shirts, Cuban collars (see #5) or really almost anything. Ditch the heavy bracelets and time zone movements for something minimal with a wide, white dial. Look for a case size of 40mm or bigger (I like a 42mm one, personally).

Biker Jeans

Plain and simple...Don't wear these in 2017.

Upper Status Guide to Growing Your Beard

Upper Status Guide to Growing Your Beard

Sure, you have the basics down pat—hair, nails, scent, crisp, clean shirt, tailored pants, quality shoes—but chances are, your facial hair only gets a cursory wash or a little bit of shabby shaping with a disposable razor. Here's how to make the most out of your beard.

Should you grow one?

A change in seasons, in places with seasons, is usually a reason to grow a beard, but in our tropical neck of the woods, you can grow that five o’ clock shadow anytime. If you’re blessed enough to have enough facial follicles, go for it. The allure of a beard lies in its ability to send a big F.U. to conformity as well as project an air of mystery about the wearer.

What suits you?

There are many types of beards: from the day-old stubble, to goatees, the scruff, the ‘stash, to the circle beard. As a rule, short, neatly trimmed beards will suit most everyone.

The style and coverage highly depends on the shape of the wearer. Thin, longish faces can accommodate a little more thickness, while round faces are best with narrower styles. Smaller facial features are suited to shorter beard lengths. But those with a fuller, plumper face should avoid, say, a thin circle beard, because it will only draw attention to the extra pounds. If you have a prominent mouth (and if you are a big Tom Selleck fan), the “pyramid” mustache might work. A clean but slightly unkempt style might go well with a rock-and-roll look, while nothing says spiffy more than a well-groomed, medium-length growth over the mouth and chin. 

What to avoid?

Unless you’re Tony Stark, it’s kind of hard to pull off, well, a Tony Stark scruff. Same goes with the handlebar mustache. And never, under any circumstance, ever go for the Gandalf—even when the benevolent-old-man look is your thing.

Proper Grooming

Give your beard the same attention as you would your hair and your face. In other words, keep it clean and neat. The skin under the beard should be as properly moisturized as the rest of your mug. Also, when shaping your beard, avoid cutting too close to your jawline, as this can give you a double chin.

Seek professional help

It won’t hurt to go to the professionals, like the highly trained barbers in establishments like Titan. They would know what style suits your face and how best to maintain your beard. Also, they have the best tools. Their meticulous, almost surgical shaving process is an experience in itself.

If you're doing it at home

But you can’t go to a barber every day, so it pays to have a few tools at home. Aside from your shaving cream, after-shave, and razor, invest in a good electric beard trimmer or clippers. These are ideal in obtaining an even, perfect trim. Pick one that comes complete with a variety of blades or guides. These ensure that you can sculpt your beard according to your desired length. Quite simply, it works like magic. Gandalf be damned.

Beard trimming templates are a great tool for shaping the perfect beard at home. Get a professional-level accurate trim or crisp shave, without your barber's costly services! Just use this amazing grooming guide tool along with your preferred razor, electric trimmer or clipper. The stainless steel ones are the best, not the crappy plastic ones.
