1. BASIC HOODIE

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 2.09.18 PM.png

This  is the one item every guy should wear and it will never make you feel overdressed. Just pair it up with some jeans and a simple minimal watch from Bradford. It’s a super stylish look that subtle yet makes you look better dressed than 99% of the campus.

2.FLANNEL

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 2.13.23 PM.png

Again, like the hoodie, this is a super simple piece that makes you look better than the rest. Most importantly, don’t forget the watch. That’s what makes the outfit and brings it to the next level. Most guys in high school or college don’t wear watches which makes their style not as developed as yours. Since I know you guys are on a budget, I got the perfect watches.

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 2.16.01 PM.png

If you’re looking for super affordable watches that look stylish, Bradford Watch Co. is the way to go. They usually go for $125, which is the norm for fashion, but since you’re reading this article, you get a $50 discount. Just use code “tmfstyle”. Which a stylish watch like this, you can never go wrong, especially with the price point it offers.

3.BACKPACK

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 2.22.01 PM.png

A backpack is a big piece that either make or break your outfit. You don’t a clunky backpack that makes you look like a hiker. Personally, I like to keep it small and only buy canvas or leather, these tend to work and add to your style as well.

4.DENIM

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 2.24.43 PM.png

It’s important to make sure you’re buying denim that fit right. It has to be fitted through your leg and tapered at the bottom. This way, it accents your shoe giving it the spotlight it deserves. But if you’re going to buy one pair, I recommend you buy a dark wash. It goes with every outfit, and most people won’t know it’s your only pair.

5.GET ONE HYPED ITEM

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 2.29.15 PM.png

I know what you’re thinking and no, it doesn’t have to be over-ly expensive. But I know it is to be a teenager. It’s all about clout. A good example of an affordable hyped item is the Yeezy “Powerphase”. They have the name behind them becuase of Kanye and it’s a classic silhouette  that you can get for around $200. This is definietly not a item that you need but rather want. If you get it, it will definietly boost your style but it’s not necessary.

 

Everyone at one point of their life have felt some sort of depression. We have to understand that there are many different levels of depression from feeling down to clinical depression and unfortunately, having suicidal thoughts. If you are at that level, I strongly recommend you search medical help right now. Look at the bright side, all forms can be treated. Today, I am going to show you 5 tips you can do to get out of depression and feel on top of the world.

1.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A DAILY ROUTINE

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 6.52.44 PM.png

Find something that’s going to keep you busy all day. Depression sucks all the energy out of you and eventually you’re going to enter this sorrowful, self pity stage where each day just melts into the next. However, if you have a daily routine, it fights depression and makes you feel in control of your life. For example, breakfast, school, gym, socialize, then go to bed. Of course, that was a very broad scenario, but all you want to make sure is that you’re pre-occupied with tasks you want to complete all day long.

2.MAKE YOURSELF FEEL BETTER

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 6.06.56 PM.png

Sometimes depression comes in from the simple fact that you feel upset and unsatisfied with yourself. Whether you don’t like how you look or feel that you’re not good enough, you want to turn that around. It’s okay to splurge on that one shirt that you’ve been wanting or an expensive sneaker you had your eyes on. If it makes you feel better, so be it.

3.SET GOALS FOR YOURSELF

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 6.54.58 PM.png

There is no better confidence boost than achieving a goal you set for yourself. Since you need an immediate boost, I recommend micro-goals, that can be achieved that same exact day. For example, you’re going to go to the gym today, run a mile, beat a personal and meet a new person. Doesn’t matter what it is, just set yourself one easy goal and achieve it.

4.DO SOMETHING YOU FEAR

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 6.55.31 PM.png

When you’re feeling down, do something that you fear. Some have a fear of being alone or talking to girls. Whatever your fear, go out and do it. When you conquer that fear, you get a sudden rush of courage. In other words, it’s a natural high that you will shake you out of your depression.

5.REMOVE NEGATIVE PEOPLE

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 6.57.10 PM.png

If you have toxic people around, that keep bring you down. When you’re depressed, they’re going to do what they do best and keep hammering at you. Make sure you surround yourself with friends and family that are positive and make you happy.

1.FIDGET SPINNERS

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 10.37.43 PM.png

They’re just not cool anymore. I talked about them before and how they relief stress, but it’s a new year. I still see them being sold at stores. They just need to be gone.

2.HomePod

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 10.39.21 PM.png

Apple is extremely late to the game. You got Alexa, Google Home, and Echo. Now, Apple wants to release the HomePod? It was supposed to be released last year, and we just learned that they don’t know the exact release date. If it was up to me, I’d take the HomePod behind the barn and kill. There’s no need for it.

3.SELFIE STICKS

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 10.52.17 PM.png

I still see these being sold in tourist-y spots in Florida. These should not exist anymore. There’s so many people around you. Just ask someone for a picture, you don’t have to worry about holding an obnoxious stick in the air.

4.PHONE ARM BANDS

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 10.55.52 PM.png

There’s no need for these when you have a smart watch. There’s no reason to put your phone your arm. You just look like a runner from the 90s, it makes you look obsolete.

5.360 CAMERA

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 11.20.39 PM

They were cool at one time, but now they’re just overused. For whatever reason, nobody has a good 360 camera with high-quality. The end result is usually distorted and not enjoyable.

1.SONOS 1, $200

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 4.14.53 PM.png

This speaker kills 2 bird in 1 stone. You can listen to music and it also have Amazon Alexa built in it. Which is something I definietly recommend to every guy. Making this a smart speaker.

2.APPLE WATCH, $429

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 4.18.58 PM.png

I love using this watch when I work out. It counts my calories and tracks everything I do. However, if this is out of your price point, you can also get the FitBit Blaze which is about half the price. I do think the Apple Watch works better, and if you already have multiple Apple products then this is something you should definietly pick up.

3.BOWER&WILKINS HEADPHONES, $400

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 4.25.57 PM.png

Yes, I know these are super expensive. But these are some of the best headphones I have ever owned. They are worth every penny. They work great and the active noise cancelation is amazing. The headphones also come with an auxiliary cord input and you can wire them to your phone or computer.

4.NOMAD BATTERY CHARGING CABLE, $50

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 5.11.28 PM.png

This is something we all need to carry with us. There is a battery integrated into the cable so it also works as an external  power source. It’s a tough cable so it won’t break on you. If you travel a lot, or a student, this is definietly something for you.

5.CRYPTOCURRENCY

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 5.17.59 PM.png

Like I said before, you need to be careful with this. It’s extremely risky, so if you’re going to to invest make sure you can afford the loss. Don’t take a loan or mortgage your house. Invest the extra money you don’t mind losing.

Recently, I made a article of my EDC, however I gathered it from over the years and turned out to be very expensive, around $8,000. I get that this is unrealistic for most people and I made a quality EDC list for only $100!

1.JS Tactical, $12

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 3.47.18 PM.png

This is the cheapest flashlight on Amazon that I can find with a substantial amount of quality behind it. It has around 300 lumens and does a great job. It’s extremely bright and it feels like quality plus fits in the hand perfectly.

2.SPYRECO PERSISTANCE, $40

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 3.50.24 PM.png

This is great knife, it has a 3-inch blade, and has a quality grip. It’s great for opening boxes or if you’re in a emergency and you need to cut your seatbelt. It is made in China, however Spyderco makes sure your getting a high-quality knife with the low price point.

3.HERSCHEL CARD HOLDER, $16

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 3.55.13 PM.png

Don’t let the price fool you. This is a great wallet that will last you a while. It even has RFID protection! It’s a quality wallet at a great price and have enough slots for your necessary cards and even some cash. For $16, it’s a steal.

4.ZEBRA F-701, $8

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 3.59.12 PM.png

This pen is made from all steal and it’s a great addition to your EDC! It’s not something that can break easily, and you can carry it around and not worry about it. It’s cheap but it’s still made of quality materials.

5.TIMEX WEEKENDER, $32

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 4.02.04 PM.png

This watch is a classic. It’s a casual watch, you can even change the straps on it and make it look completely different. It’s tough and look great! It’s the best bang for your buck and you can’t go wrong with it.

1. RED CLOTHING

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 2.25.06 PM.png

Studies show that if a man wears red, he appears more attractive and high-status. So the fact that she thinks you have money and the sexual attraction, make sure you’re wearing more red!

2.WELL-FITTING PANTS

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 2.30.39 PM.png

Find a pair of well fitting pants…that make your butt look good. If you’re thinking “Ew! Girls don’t check out my butt!” Don’t believe me? Ask them. I know it sounds feminine, but crucify the messenger. I’m just here to relay the message to you.

3.WEAR GLASSES

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 2.34.42 PM.png

Glasses make you look mysterious and give you a bad boy vibe. They also help structure your face. On top of that, if you buy some luxurious glasses from 9Five, they also make you look high status. If you want some super stylish, sexy frames, I suggest you check out 9Five.

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 2.42.20 PM.png

I first heard about these guys on the GQ TV show “Most Expensivest S**t” and they were showing their $48,000 glasses. They basically make luxury frames for guys, that aren’t expensive at all. However, the glasses do look expensive. By the way, it’s real gold. They’re stainless steal that are dipped in real gold. I talked to the guys over at 9Five, and even though these glasses are cheap at full price, I still wanted them to be cheaper so use code “TMF” for a serious discount.

4.SCENT

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 2.58.14 PM.png

What scent are women attracted to the most? It’s you, it’s your own personal manly scent. Women can smell out a hunk from a mile away.

5.GIVE HER THE LOOK

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 3.01.27 PM.png

When a girl gives you a look, don’t just look away quickly. Give her a little stare, not too long where it’s creepy and not too short where it looks like you lack confidence. I’m telling you right now, if you do it correctly, you’re going to send butterflies through her stomach.

6.YOUR CHARISMA

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 3.13.52 PM.png

Begin charismatic is one of the sexiest things you can do and it’s 100% free! You need to socialize more, the more you do it, the more the charisma kicks in.

7.CHANGE YOUR GROOMING ROUTINE

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 3.15.31 PM.png

There’s something that girls love and it’s messy bed head. If you want to achieve this look throughout the day, my tip is grab a blowdryer, and start drying it at different directions, it’s going to add volume and texture to give you that bed head look. Then grab a matte product and start working it in all over the place with no direction whatsoever.

8.A NICE WATCH

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 3.25.57 PM.png

Sadly, women do care about your status and your wallet. However, it’s all about presentation. You can present yourself as high status without being it. For example, like wearing a nice watch or quality frames. All these little aspects elevate your presentation and make you look more expensive than you really are.

1.APPLE WATCH

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 8.36.40 PM.png

The Apple Watch is one of the best smart watches on the market. It tracks a lot of different workouts and records your progress. If you get the newest edition, you can even use it without your phone to play music or take phone calls too!

2.APPLE AIRPODS

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 8.40.09 PM.png

These are a very accessible set of ear pods, they fit perfectly, They’re completely wireless and have a very minimal design. If you have a iPhone then these are a perfect. They are necessary workout tech.

3.VI

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 11.25.22 PM.png

This is for the people that don’t go to the gym but rather go running. What I like about the VI is that it’s like a 3 in 1. It’s a personal trainer, workout tracker and headphones. It’s powered by harman/kardon so you know you’re getting quality.

4.SKULPT

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 12.20.11 AM.png

This is a great tool if you’re trying to lose weight and track your progress. It’s a scan that works if you put it on your skin. After scanning your body, it will tell you your muscle and fat percentage. It’s great because you can scan any part of your body and it will give you a better idea on your progress and what you can do to improve.

5.SMART JUMP ROPE

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 12.31.20 AM.png

I normally hate cardio, however jump-roping is something that I enjoy. I believe I get a good workout and burn a lot of calories. You can count the amount of jumps and calories burned. It also tells you how long the workout was as well.

1.GET A PAIR OF SUNGLASSES

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 6.38.00 PM.png

Get something that structures your face and makes you look better. Let’s say you had a rough night or you didn’t get enough sleep, just put on a pair of sunglasses and instantly look more attractive. Celebrities have been doing this for years. Glasses also make your face more symmetrical therefore, more attractive.

2.WEAR BRACELETS

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 6.51.55 PM.png

When you don’t wear any jewelry, specifically bracelets, your arms look longer and thinner, almost like twigs, which is obviously something you don’t want. As you soon as you throw a bracelet, your arm appears more muscular and a bit shorter. Not to mention, if it fits perfectly, it makes your veins pop out, which of course, vascularity means instant attractiveness. That’s why I love RoseGold&Black, they make jewelry that’s adjustable, that means it fits everyone. I definitely recommend you guys try RoseGold&Black, it’s a brand I’ve been supporting for a while and wear it everyday. If you guys want to check out these bracelets, click “here” for 25% off.

3.BLACK T-SHIRT

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 7.01.49 PM.png

You want a simple black t-shirt that makes you look sexy and muscular. It makes any guy, no matter what skin complexion look handsome.

4.TRACKPANTS

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 7.13.13 PM.png

Apart from being trendy, they fit amazing and it’s acceptable to wear it casually, it’s more like athleisure. The part that makes them attractive is they make guys look like athletes. Women love athletes, that’s why jocks are popular in school. If you look like some athletic stud, women want to be with you.

5.A NICE FITTING DRESS SHIRT

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 7.17.35 PM.png

You can actually wear this casually (if it’s short enough) with a pair of jeans and white leather sneakers. What this does, is show a level of sophistication. It’s simple! Just throw on a simple white shirt and I guarantee you’ll look more attractive.

 

1.DON’T LET HEAT ESCAPE

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 3.36.58 PM.png

Make sure you cover areas of your body that you otherwise wouldn’t. You don’t want a ounce of heat to leave your body. At this point, it’s function over fashion. For example, headwear, wear a baseball cap, if you don’t look good in that, try a beanie. As a last resort, wear a hoodie, or even layer a hoodie under a coat. Gloves are a must when we’re talking freezing temperatures.

2.WEAR A THERMAL

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 3.38.54 PM.png

If it’s freezing outside, you need to wear a thermal, this is not up for discussion. The ones that I personally use are thermals from Tani. You want to have as many layers as possible without looking like the Michelin Man. Unlike other thermals that are thick and chunky, Tani’s thermal fit snug and make it look like you have nothing underneath. With luxury fabrics come luxury prices, the whole set comes out to be around $145. But, TMF always hooks it up. I want you guys to try this so use code “TMF65” to save $80 at checkout!

3.LAYER CORRECTLY

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 3.51.12 PM.png

You don’t have to make each layer super thick. For example, you have your thermal, on top throw on a turtleneck, then a vest, a jean jacket, and lastly a overcoat. At this point your basically cooking yourself. Even if it’s 10 degrees outside, you’re comfortable and you also look super-stylish.

4.GET A WARM JACKET

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 4.06.01 PM.png

A thick and warm jacket is a must. A good example of this is a puffer jacket. It’s easy to layer under it and it’s a great to retain heat. So you got function, but puffer jackets are also trendy so you also got style. That’s basically what you call a win-win situation.

5.GET BOOTS

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 4.09.19 PM.png

Guys, stop flexing your sneakers. That won’t do you any good in the winter. You’re just going to get them dirty. You need to get yourself a quality pair of boots and there’s so many choices out there! From Timbs to Chelsea boots, pick up a pair and be warm and stylish during the cold months.

So, sneakers are boomin’ right now. It doesn’t take a genius to see that. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of them look great. However, the ones that have been coming out right now makes me raise the question “What do people even see in these?”. Today, we are going to go over the top 7 ugliest sneakers you need to avoid.

1.YEEZY BOOST “FROZEN YELLOW”

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 2.39.32 PM.png

This shoe is just too much. In reality, I haven’t seen anyone actually pull these off and look good. Not to mention, the crazy price point, they resell for $900! If you want a pair of Yeezys, skip these and go with the Yeezy Boost  “Zebra”.

2.REEBOK X VETEMENTS “GENETICALLY MODIFIED”

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 2.42.04 PM.png

Vetements is one of those super high-fashion brands with very flamboyant clothes and they partnered with Reebok to sneakers that due in fact look genetically modified. Plus, the price retails at $100. Save your money boys, you’re not gonna pick up any chicks with these shoes. Why buy those when you can simply pick up some Reebok Classics. Of course, they don’t have a super-hyped brand slapped on them but they do have classic styling. Most importantly, you can get them for $40.

Just do what I do, whenever I see a shoe that I like I add it to my Shoptagr list. Then, when I have a little bit of extra spending cash, I shop for whatever I need and expand my collection.

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 2.48.23 PM.png

This is the best way to track the sneakers that you actually like. When you see that shoe that you really want, all you have to do is tag it on the Shoptagr app. Fast forward a little when the price drops, Shoptagr will notify you. In addition, it can also notify when your size or color gets restocked. So, if you’re a online shopper, this is an app for you.

3.BALENCIAGA “TRIPLE S”

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 2.55.14 PM.png

They’re just too clunky. Similarly to the Yeezy “Frozen Yellow” not many people can pull this off. Of course, they are also super expensive.

4.NIKE “VAPORMAX”

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 2.57.10 PM.png

Personally, I actually like these. They retail for about $180-$200. I even have a black pair myself. However, I’ve hear people say that you look like you’re walking on tide pods to they look too much like Nike Shocks. Although I like them, the general consensus is that they’re ugly.

5.YEEZY “DESERT RAT 500”

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 3.04.41 PM.png

If you thought the “Wave Runner” was ugly, which I did. These “Desert Rats” take the cake. It literally looks like you’re wearing a rat on your feet. The retail price on these sneakers are TBA, but people did get their hands on them and are reselling them on eBay for $2000, so I would avoid those.

6.NIKE X SUPREME “UPTEMPO”

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 3.08.04 PM.png

I know how hype these are and people love them. Personally, they just look like clunky snowboarding shoes. On top of that, they’re retailing for $800, I personally wouldn’t buy them.

7. 2001 KOBE 2

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 3.10.00 PM.png

This one is a little throwback, but it’s just to remind you that not all Adidas shoes are heat.
