Game Day Men's Skincare

A good skincare routine is essential to any well-dressed man. To help with your daily routine I would recommend using Game Day Skincare. Game Day is a men’s only skincare company based in Greenwich, CT. All of their products are paraben free, cruelty free, toxin free and non-GMO.

Two products I've benefitted from using are the charging spray and the moisturizer cream. I have used their changing spray and moisturizer for about 6 months, with great results. My skin feels refreshed and clean without feeling greasy. The changing spray gives your skin vitamins and antioxidants. Also, this spray has unique ingredients in it like pear cactus extract and black tea. Both these ingredients work together to hydrate your skin and prevent UV damage. This moisturizer also has SPF 30 built into it. SPF helps block UV rays that cause skin cancer. Both products work to hydrate your skin and prevent UV damage.

With two great products that cost 50 dollars combined, both your skin and your wallet will be thrilled.

Like shoes or a tie, a watch is a good indicator of style and is an essential for any well-dressed man. There are so many different styles of watches; dress, casual, sport, classic, modern. Those with wide faces, large numbers, and no numbers, jeweled, and colorful, the variety are seemingly endless. A watch provides an excellent opportunity, as an accessory, to accentuate the personality of its wearer.

Watches are made to serve different purposes and fit the needs of different types of people. Some watches are created for scuba divers, others are created for athletes, and some are created to help the blind. The pocket watch, first created during the 1920s, was used before the wristwatch. Usually a watch is worn on the non-dominate hand and should fit snugly, but comfortably around the wrist. As a casual accessory, it’s not necessary for a watch to match your belt, but in a more formal dress, the watch should match the belt and/or coordinate with tie bar and cufflinks.

Recently, I’ve been wearing the classic Bristol by the Swiss watch company Daniel Wellington as my everyday watch. This watch compliments my classic aesthetic, is extremely lightweight and has a silent tick, all of which I appreciate. The simple leather strap and the clean white face make it a versatile accessory to dress up or down and I feel comfortable wearing it for most occasions, other than my workout.

Another favored timepiece is the Hamilton Khaki Field watch. This watch gives off a utilitarian aesthetic and is water-resistant up to 300 feet. Similar to the Daniel Wellington, the Hamilton watch is easy to wear with both casual and formal outfits. I also appreciate the Timex Weekenders, another classic style at a much lower price point. As my first real watch, I began to understand, when wearing it, how a simple accessory could add to my wardrobe and assert my personality.

When people look at my wrist I hope they understand that I have a respect for classic accessories but with a modern sensibility.

Victorinox

Victorinox Swiss Army watches have been made in a family business in Ibach, the heart of Switzerland for over 130 years. You might have already recognized Victorinox as the original maker of the Swiss Army knife. Swiss Army Knives have been used by millions of people all over the world. This cult object used by military people, astronauts and regular people alike can now be found in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Along with watches, Victorinox produces luggage, clothing and fragrances too.

Alliance by Victorinox is a series of utilitarian watches released specifically for this summer. This is a classic watch you can easily wear in formal and non-formal occasions. This watch is self-winding and comes in two different colors, dark gray or eggshell. These watches come with two bracelets, polished and stained steel or an ecologically tanned black leather strap, made with an understanding of protecting the environment. Both these watch bracelets come with a folding clasp too, so you don’t have to worry about the watch moving around once its on your wrist. Connecting with the brands utilitarian aesthetic, the smaller numbers seen on top of each dial are used to tell military time. The watch face is scratch resistant and is water resistant up to 330 feet or 100 meters. Lastly, all Victorinox watches come with a three-year guarantee and are designed to last a lifetime.

Psycho Bunny

A foulard tie is essential for any fashionable man's wardrobe. This particular one by Psycho Bunny is my new favorite. Look closely and see their logo. Along with neckties, they sell a variety of stylish mens clothing. My simple suggestions would be to make sure that the button down shirt is lighter than the tie and that the pocket square coordinates but doesn’t match exactly. This creates visual interest.

Tommy Hilfiger

Saddle shoes are essential for every man’s wardrobe. This pair, by Tommy Hilfiger are classic and comfortable and are the perfect mix between a wingtip and suede oxford. And because of this, they can be easily paired with dress or casual items already in your wardrobe. The copper sole and the broguing in the middle of the shoe add a really nice, yet subtle, detail that I appreciate. A perfect shoe for crisp Autumn days.
