There are so many brands nowadays that are just ripping you off. These brands think they can just spike up their prices because they have a big name for themselves, but it’s all wrong. They essentially trick the consumer into thinking they are getting something of insane quality, and it’s not worth half of what they sell it for. Being that you guys are a part of the TMF family, I would hate to see any of this happen to you. So, here are 6 brands that are just ripping you off.
You guessed it right, Gucci is one of the most hyped brands out right now, but the biggest waste of money for its buyers. Sure, they are innovators and come up with insanely cool ideas and items, so you can’t knock them on creativity. But, they are definitely ripping you off. The quality on some pieces is above what it should, as it should be. But on some pieces, the quality most definitely does not match what you’re paying.
Pacsun gives you some good, trendy items, but it gives it to you at prices you shouldn’t be paying. Look at H&M and Zara for example, they give you exactly what you pay for. Pacsun doesn’t. They give basic quality at an above average price. Sometimes you’ll strike an insane deal at Pacsun, but if your shopping their non-sale items, nine times out of ten, you’re going to get ripped off for the quality that you get. Our Sponsor, The Menlo Club gets rid of this problem.
They sell honestly, and give you the quality items you want at the cheapest prices on the market. They sell a subscription service that gives you clothes every month to your door. They have a Menlo Club package deal just for the TMF squad, its only $30 and you get a free pair of shoes and socks with your purchase. I know you’ll love them, take the chance and pick one up today.
The terms “overhyped” and “overpriced” define this company. They sell the most overhyped, overpriced clothing on the market. A simple t shirt can cost you up to $40 here. It won’t fit that well and it’s going to fit differently after a few washes. You need to invest your money smarter when buying clothes. Buy timeless pieces that have a universal usage, something that can be worn with many outfit combinations.
Its estimated that a pair of Beats by Dre headphones only cost them about $15 to make, but they sell it anywhere from $200-$500! That’s just crazy. They take advantage of their customers. Sure, the sound quality is good, but it’s just wrong that they charge that much for a pair of headphones that aren’t worth more than your dinner.
Coffee is a necessity for most people. So, brands like Starbucks take advantage of the consumer by marking up their prices almost 300% what they pay for their products. Sure, they have consumers who don’t care and will pay whatever for their beloved beverages, but it’s just not right that they take advantage of their buyers like they do. Buying your own coffee maker is cheaper and easier, especially in the stressful mornings.
This brand literally takes everyday items and slaps their log on it and thinks they can charge an insane price for it. They do this successfully, it’s just a complete rip off. They sell a tote bag that looks identical to an IKEA tote bag, but charge over $2,000 for it. It’s insane! So, be mindful of what you invest in and watch out for companies that just want to get their hands in your pockets.

The way you can ensure your clothes will last and stay looking newer longer is based on how you take care of them and wash them. Most men could care less about this step and will completely ignore, but you should start caring about it now so you can save your money later. There are a few different steps you need to do in order to properly take care of your clothes. First, separate your dirty laundry into three piles: lights, darks, delicates.

So many guys will invest all of their money on their outfits, but forget about what goes on their feet. Sure, they’ll look good up top, but when you look at what shoes they have on; it will just throw off the entire outfit.

If you can spend a little more, make sure you have both a proper sneaker and dress shoe that can be worn universally.

You need to learn how to walk on your own two feet and face adversity on your own. Even if you do end up failing, you’ll become stronger and wiser over time, which will help you out in the long run.
Everyone becomes victim to this at one point in their lives. The fact of the matter is, no one want to hang around a guy who thinks he knows it all and is invincible.

When you are in your teens you can eat whatever you want. You have a high metabolism and food moves right through you. As you age, your metabolism slows down making you more prone to weight gain. When you are in your 20’s you want to train yourself to eat healthy, but satisfying foods that will help you maintain your weight as you continue to age.
If you didn’t know, each gram of alcohol is about 7 calories. A gram of fat is about 9 calories. To put this into perspective, alcohol has a lot of harmful fats and calories. It’s okay to drink, but minimally. If you drink like you did back in college with your metabolism slowing down from age, you’ll go into full dad bod mode. Don’t do this, and make sure you’re the best looking you possible.
If you are in your 20’s and choose to hit the gym regularly, you are doing better than the majority of people your age. If you aren’t going to the gym regularly, you need to start doing so. Getting in good shape just makes for an overall healthier life. Making you happier and less prone to anger.
Do not cat call. Period. It never works and you just look like an absolute loser sitting down doing nothing with your life. Grow a pair, and go talk to a woman like a man. This will make the situation better and more easy going.
Ditch the duct tape and velcro wallets. Get an all leather wallet instead. This will make you look as though you know style whenever you take out your wallet to pay for the bill. On top of all of this, it will make you more confident bringing an all leather wallet, rather than the wallet you had in middle school.
There are so many women in the world and if you wanted to, you could go on dates every week. But, being that you are in your 20’s, you are a man now. Girls have feelings just like you and me, and if you see a girl likes you and the feelings aren’t being reciprocated by you, make sure she knows that. Don’t ghost her, just be a man and tell her, nicely.
Being that you are a guy, you might be asking yourself, “Why am I so awkward around girls? It’s a very common question that many guys have a problem with, not just you. The thing you have to realize is that people are just people. With your guy friends, you can talk comfortably for hours, but as soon as you talk to a girl, you tend to freeze and stutter over a few sentences. Here are seven reasons why you might be awkward around women, and ways to solve them.
In your mind, you essentially look at your crush as having no flaws and being absolutely perfect. You want to look like a perfect guy to meet her level of perfection, which doesn’t end well. You just have to remember that she’s a person like everybody else. She poops and breathes like everybody else, and probably has insecurities of her own. Use this mindset from now on and see how comfortable you will get, rather than stuttering and looking nervous around her.
If this is the case, you are just overthinking everything. You might feel as though you need to have the correct “game” or have some type of players handbook to keep the conversation going, but this isn’t true at all. A very, very small percentage of guys can actually spit game, so the only thing you need to do is actually build up enough confidence to go up and talk to her. Ultimately, you just want a girl to like you for you. You need to act like yourself, and if she doesn’t like you for you, then she wasn’t worth your time and you need to move on.
The truth to this is that no one is actually ugly. You are just too lazy to invest into yourself and your appearance. The number one thing that every guy should be doing to increase their handsomeness is to treat their skin. To many guys have too much of an “ego” to go through a proper skin care routine, because they think they don’t need it. If you are actually smart enough, you need to take care of your skin correctly. The best place to start in the skin care industry is with Tiege Hanley.
They have a fool proof skincare system that oversimplifies getting amazing looking skin, that will boost your handsomeness and appearance. The system includes instructions and all of the products you will need to look incredible, and it’s very affordable too! If you are a guy who thinks he’s ugly or could use a boost of handsomeness you need to try out this system as soon as possible.
If you act too cool with a girl and super distant, and dry with her, it’s not going to end in your favor. Shell think you are just boring and uninteresting which will make her want to leave. So, just act how a lady would like to be treated, don’t be arrogant.
This is a big issue that causes you to act awkwardly around women. This will make a girl think as though there are too many expectations on her, which will just increase the pressure on you. If you are unhappy with your job, body, life, whatever it is, a girl will not solve all of those problems for you. You need to be dependent on yourself and be dependent on your own. Depending on somebody for your happiness is a terrible way to start a relationship.
Again, too often guys see women as these amazing, flawless creatures that deserve to be praised. This is why you are acting awkwardly. In fact, YOU are the prize and you should be treating yourself that way. Invest and take care of yourself so your outward reflects your inward. With this mindset, you’ll turn into that confident stud that she is lucky enough to be talking too.
So many guys get overly nervous knowing that they have little dating experience, while also knowing the girl they are talking to has already been around the block. Don’t do this. She is still human, and she still gets nervous. Lack of experience should never be a turn off for women, and if it is, move on because she didn’t deserve you.
