There are so many brands, styles, and technologies and not to mention prices. The purpose of the this article is to get you prepared for when you walk in that door, or buy online

Analog or digital. There are three basic watch formats digital, analog and analog-digital, each type has their fans, however most of your topline watches tend to be analog. Digital watches as a whole are less expensive, Analog-digital are next with full analog the most expensive. Digital watches have their place. For example, if you need a stopwatch a digital or analog digital may be your best bet. Though true analog watches are among the most expensive budget price analog watches can also be found.

Water resistance: Watches are rated from 30m to 300m water resistant. You may well want a water resistant watch but most of us aren't divers that need a 300m (or 1,000ft) rated resistance. You should look for a watch with at least 3ATM (100m) water resistance. However; don't overbuy in this category

Movement: All watches these days are one of two categories mechanical or quartz. Quartz watches can be broken down into automatic, battery or solar powered. Mechanical watches are either automatic or hand winding. Most mid-priced watches will be battery powered. Mechanical watches, and more specifically hand winding watches, once the mainstay of watches have been largely replaced by Quartz models.

Watch Shape. Classic men's watches are round, square or rectangular, with round being the most prevalent. Women's can be these same shapes while fashion watches can be of almost any shape. However, the round, square, rectangle classic look can be worn with just about anything, anywhere. Best to go classic for men. Women can buy watches for the outfit but classic are still your best buy for all around wear.

Case and band materials: Case and band materials are typically stainless steel, ceramic or plated base metal. The choice is largely up to the consumer. However stainless steel and ceramic will last the longest without showing wear. Gold-filled is preferred to gold plate, the thickness of the gold filling being 100% greater than gold plate. Gold filled like solid gold and unlike plated gold is non allergenic. Solid gold or silver of course is the ultimate but the price will be high and is most appropriate for dress wear. Let me not leave out Leather bands, they are classy, and usually less expensive to replace. They are very attractive on a dress watch but one should think twice before buying them for strenuous work or play regiments.

Case size: Case size is typically between 40-44mm for men and 36mm or smaller for women. There are exceptions and size is largely a matter of taste. However as a general rule watches should not extend wider than the wrist.

Features: Features are many and should be chosen by need. Most watches have a 12-hour dial, but 24-hour dials can be had. Watches with Chronographer, altimeters, calculators, alarms, backlights, atomic radio controlled and compass are all functions that are available in the marketplace. However one word of caution is the more accessories you pile on a watch, the greater the likelihood of failure of one or more. Buy the functions you need, don't be for example, and be lured into an altimeter in Kansas.

I hope this brief article will you give you some things to think about before buying that watch and narrow the choices before you face the salesman.


images (9)Girls with long thin legs seem to be more appealing to people as compared to girls who are comparatively shorter in height. It is the dream of every girl to have a good figure accompanied by a good height. However, as they say, danger always comes in disguise. So is the case in having a good height that might prove to be a bane when it comes to selecting the correct clothing.

Finding a pair of stylish jeans can become a daunting task for you if you are tall. Thus, if your stars are favouring you right and you have managed to find a pair of jeans which fits your best, consider it to be your most prized possession in your life.

Here is a compiled list of all the reasons why jeans meant for tall girls are designed a little differently.

• Inseam shorter in length: Inseam is a technical term used to describe the length of the pants in inches. Commonly jeans makers choose 34 to be ideal inseam. However, jeans with an inseam of 37 are also available in some shades and styles but you would have lesser options to choose from. The inseam of 37 works best for girls having a height of 5.8 to 6 feet.

• Lighter shades are only available: Most pairs of jeans with longer inseam are manufactured in lighter shades of colour because lighter shades are believed to accentuate the volume of the lower half of your body. This works best for girls who have a slimmer physique, camouflaging their height to make them look even taller.

• Shorter hemline reaching till the ankle: Jeans meant for taller ladies have hemline reaching their ankle. However, this kind of jeans is preferred as it boasts up your curves making you look all slim and trim due to the tapering near the ankle of your legs.

• Most of them are skinny in nature: Most of the jeans available for tall girls are skinny. These types of jeans are considered to be ideal for tall girls having an average height of around 6 feet, which enhance the look of all feminine features in their body. Having an inseam of 38, they fit you tightly on the legs, making your limbs look thinner.

• Size of the waist: Care should be taken to find a pair of jeans which fits right on your waist; otherwise, it can give you a disproportional look.

Thus, these points should be kept in mind if you are shopping for a pair of jeans for taller girls, as their kind of jeans is a little unique and a bit difficult to find.

Firstly, buying custom tank tops for women or polo shirts for men participating in a fundraising event can help give the entire occasion an identity. This can be done by creating a unique and recognisable reputation for the event, or instead picking out just one colour that represents the cause that you are raising money for.

A choice that many people will be familiar with is the colour pink associated with breast cancer research charities. For those fundraising for this type of event, investing in pink custom shirts or custom tank tops for women can give those participating in the event some easily identifiable clothing that helps them connect with supporters and sponsors.

For those organising a truly unique event that is not such a major cause such as cancer research or something similar, custom clothing gives them the chance to come up with an original design that can define their campaign. Again, this can be a blend of colours or can be a pattern, logo or image that will help the cause stand out.

In addition to giving a sense of identity to the event, another advantage of doing this is that it creates a feeling of teamwork for everyone involved. Feeling like they are participating in an important event can bring a great level of satisfaction to those who are taking part in a fundraiser, and a uniform amplifies this.

This is why many fundraisers feature an uniform or dress code, and this helps the group to bond and work together to do a great final result. This can also help the team or group of people act more cohesive to reach goals, and not taking a more individualistic approach.

In addition to this psychological aspect of custom clothing, another advantage of investing in these garments is that it is a great opportunity to advertise sponsors of the event. This can attract more financial investment which can be extremely beneficial for the cause in question.

This is often the case in sporting events, where sponsors are eager to jump in and lend their support. Many sponsors will invest more if their logo or company name has a prominent place on the clothing for the event or on other signage, and for this reason buying customisable clothing can be a great choice for fundraisers.

Furthermore, custom t-shirts for men or custom tank tops for women can give the opportunity to print participants' names on, which can further personalise the event for those who are taking part. With sponsors and participants being catered to and kept happy, custom clothing can be a great investment that has many advantages.

Lastly, investing in this type of customisable clothing for fundraisers can lend an air of professionalism to the event, as all people are wearing the same clothing. You can also control the 'look' of the clothing by opting for something that is very casual or something that is smarter, depending on the type of fundraiser.

download (6)Besides choosing a different colour tie to change your look a bit, there are other accessories that aren't as loud as a colourful tie but can still be seen and complement your look well. These accessories are easy to choose and can be found at many men's suits stores.

Not falling too far from the tree, the bow tie is a good way to change your appearance. It may be odd to wear at first but these can look great for most black tie events. Men don't often wear necklaces so a bow tie complements the neck nicely in a less flashy way.

Pocket squares break the colour flawlessly. The touch of colour gives the appearance more depth. Since it is only in the breast pocket, the colour of the pocket square should match the tie so it doesn't look too awkward.

On the metallic side of accessories, you can wear cufflinks, tie pin, brooches and collar tips.

Cufflinks all have a unique style to them and if you want to be different but not too boldly then the best way to go about it is by getting the small metallic accessories. Like a bracelet or a watch, the cufflinks also make a good statement especially if you are not the kind of person to wear a watch. Cufflinks can also give your style a unique look.

Tie pins are minimal but give your look personality. They can be personalised, designed or plain. Tie pins make the tie stand out without doing too much. They are also useful to men who don't want their ties flapping in their faces.

Brooches also give the men's suit a unique look. Although it sounds feminine, the brooch is actually a good way to stand out. They often resemble your status the same way a medal resembles that you have been in a war.

Collar tips were meant to serve as weights for when the wind blew. In this era, the collar tip is also a style and status accessory. The accessory is a good way to show off class if they are connected with a chain. The triangular tips are better to use for casual attire.

It's easy to complement your appearance and make it classy. In the previous two centuries, men's statuses were often defined by what they wore. You can still have your status defined without having to spend too much money.

Located in Johannesburg's most iconic shopping institution, the Oriental Plaza, Abrams Stores is a family owned and managed business, specialising in high-end, exclusive branded wear for men and boys. Our philosophy is simple, and has been the driving force behind our success - we value quality, exclusivity and customer service above all else.

images (4)Well, don't you think we all live in the time where everything is disposable? For example, throwaway pens, bottles, and other things. It was my grandfather who has still kept his things intact (and working) of his times. What we know is to use something and throw it away and then move on to the next one. However, I have been working on things and trying to make them useful, out of which my used pairs of men's underwear have been my center of focus these days.

So, this article talks about the various things you can do to make your used underwear useful.

As we move to the things you can actually do, you'd be needing things that will help design the pairs into different things.

1. A pair of scissors
2. Thread
3. Needle
4. Miscellaneous things

So, once you are ready with the basic things, (miscellaneous things refer to extra fabric or patches and something to beautify your piece of art) you can choose from the ideas mentioned below.

a.) Tank Top or a Sports Bra

Well, this the most basic you can do with your old men's brief underwear. It would definitely be a creative idea to have something really supportive down there. You would just need a pair of scissors and you're good to go.

1. Measure your neckline (how deep you want the neckline to be)
2. Mark on the measurement in pouch area (it is not important to have the same depth on both the ends)
3. Just swipe through the pouch area slowly making sure that measurement is right. The cut-out pouch area becomes your neckline and the waistband is what holds a strong grip below the bust.

b.) Diaper

It can be very expensive for the new parents to balance the expenses after a new member is added to the family. With all the other things that need to be bought for the baby, the diaper is an essential that is needed by the parents to keep the baby clean. However, how would a used comfortable underwear for men be of some help for the baby?

1. Get the most comfortable and soft one from the lot.
2. Lay flat and fold both the sides like you see in the diapers (make sure the folds are equal for the baby to feel comfortable.
3. Pin it up and do not stitch (Stitching is a bad idea because once done, you would have to do a lot to undo it once the child grows).
4. Place women's sanitary napkin in the pouch area so that the urine is soaked up easily without making it a hassle for you to keep checking again and again.

You can use them by removing the sanitary napkin and washing the tighty whitey properly.

c.) Pet's bed

All the pet lovers would understand what this means to them. A pet bed is one of the most important things if you want to see the pet happy and want him to have a sound sleep. Whatever be the kind of kennel that you've made up for him (a house-like or the flatbed types in the corner of a room), what matters is the comfort and coziness of the bedding.

1. Collect as many as possible (depending upon the size of the bed) briefs, boxer briefs, cotton thongs or even your bathrobe you get.
2. Make sure they are absolutely clean and odor free.
3. See if your pet lies down comfortably on the same and is happy. If not, add more and let him feel really comfortable.

You can even stitch them together in order to prevent situations where the feline or canine is seen running around with your sensual g-string.

With these ideas, you can easily make use of the old comfortable pairs whether it is briefs or thong underwear for men. You just have to cut and stitch with precision in order to get things right.
