Eternity Summer by Calvin Klein



It’s not everyday I walk through a store and the smell catches my attention. Make no mistake, I still am in love with my Abercrombie Fierce cologne I talk about, (link). However, Calvin Klein is one of the other cologne brand that I am fascinated with too.

Eternity Summer by Calvin Klein is elegant in my opinion and it brings along a hint of Summer along with it’s signature Eternity by Calvin Klein. Price at USD32.99 (RM105) for 100ml, which is very affordable and worth it. I don’t always recommend to change your signature smell when you already have one, but why not spice things up for the Summer?

The Right Swimwear Style for You

I am finally back. It took awhile, but honestly I was busy with many stuff in my life after I graduated from my degree. What matters most is I am back and with more post than before, at least regular ones. I shall kick out with something soft while I sort through some of my Outfit of the Day and Stuff I Bought post.

Summer is coming soon for most places and what’s the first thing that comes into mind? Beach, of course! Summer, sun and beach, it’s definitely important to remember to get the best swimwear shorts. I saw a few guides to getting the right one and this particular one interests me.

What Swimwear Style Is Right For You?

It’s separate into six categories: tall men (6′ or above), short men and then buff, thin or big build.

Tall & Buff

Are you 6′ or taller, with broad shoulders and chest, and do you like to workout with weights, then you fall into the tall & buff category meaning you can wear anything you like because chances are it will always look good on you. If you have a good tan, lighter colors like white or pastel tones look great, but bear in mind that white rarely stays like that for a long time. In case you like bolder patterns, think about a classic paisley, madras or gingham.

Tall & Thin

If you are 6′ or taller with a slender built, go for traditional board shorts. An 8″ inseam is enough for people around 6′, and taller men can increase it to 10″ as long as they end above the knee. While a fuller cut is good, avoid the baggy board shorts trend from the 1990′s. They have the unfortunate tendency to look too youthful or simply sloppy. If you are really tall, it will be difficult to find anything with a longer inseam. You definitely want to avoid vertical stripes, because these will give you the appearance of being taller and thinner than you already are. On the other hand, horizontal stripes may work for you. In any case, avoid skinny Speedo swim briefs because chances are it will make you look boyish.  In terms of color choice, your complexion should be a good guide: if you are pale, avoid extreme colors in terms of lightness and darkness, whereas men with a tan often look better with lighter or bright colors. A rich blue like in the picture (or green, red, etc. ) will work for anybody.

Tall & Thin swim shorts

Big & Tall

As a big & tall man, you want to look advantageous and long, dark, solids board shorts will do just that for you. If your thighs are not too strong, try to avoid shorts that are too baggy. If you prefer patterns, go for a micro pattern or vertical stripes.  Avoid swim trunks, Speedo briefs and thong style swimwear.

Big & Tall swimsuits

Short & Buff

The best style for shorter, buff men will be a trunk or boxer style because the shorter inseam makes  you look taller. I’d recommend avoiding suits with an inseam longer than 6″. At any cost, avoid board shorts because they make you visually even shorter and often overhang the knee, while vertical stripes will help you look taller.

Short & Buff swim trunks

Short & Thin

If you are short and slender opt for trunks, or slim board shorts with a shorter inseam. Avoid bold and large patterns, as they will overpower your small stature. Choose microprints, or low contrast stripes instead.

Short & Thin swim trunks

Short & Big

In case you are shorter and bigger, consider a pair of high-cut briefs that would give the illusion of longer legs. Below you can see the original model in khaki which was designed for the  Underwater Demolition Team in the forties and they are still used by the Navy Seals today. At just $18, you get a classic swim trunk that won’t break the bank.  You want to opt for a looser fit without an elastic waistband, because it will make you look bigger. If the swimsuit cuts into your stomach, better go with the next larger size. Dark solids colors will always work and often have a slimming effect, but dark vertical stripes are also good as long as they are not too bold.

What Not to Wear

Regardless of your stature and build, if the goal is to look great at the beach, there are a few things to avoid that apply to everyone interested in a classic look. If possible, avoid large logo or brand symbols. I am sure you all have seen men in large Armani, Versace or Hugo Boss shorts or briefs but big branding tends to scream with a lack of self confidence, not to mention lack of personal style. So, don’t be a brand victim and choose a tasteful model that suits your physique and complexion rather than being the equivalent of an advertising billboard.

It’s up to you eventually. I really find this article useful, so go check them out. Let me know if you have any opinion about it as well.

Armani Exchange Mixed Media Backpack

Firstly I would like to apologize for the lack of post. As to why I was gone for a month, basically, I went a for a few trips with my friends and family. The few places I went was simply breathtaking, places include Hong Kong, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. I do hope to be able to share these wonderful experiences with you guys. However, do give me some time to pick up on my blogging.

Stuff I got in the United States.

Honestly, a good vacation definitely consists of shopping. Everyone’s with me with this? Well, for myself, I have this habit of visiting the local brand of that country to get the best deals and comparatively cheaper price items of that specific brand. So it was no surprise I went straight to Armani Exchange during my trip in the states. Armani Exchange is super expensive in Malaysia, so honestly, I won’t spend the money in my own country.

I came across this lovely bag. Armani Exchange Mixed Media

Armani Echange


It was priced at USD198 less 40%. With that discount, you know I had to get it. Not had to, but I wanted to.

This is what the website describe it’s bag:
Crafted from a mix of leather, cotton and nylon, our multi pocket backpack is a a take everywhere kind of bag.
mixed fabricated
snap closure on front pocket
multiple pocket design
h: 19.0″ l: 14.0″
50% cotton, 50% nylon, 100% leather trim
Well, for me, I am a fan of Armani Exchange and the design of the bag was what I wanted, so I got it. It came in 2 color. Blue and green, I got the blue one because it looked more elegant and more Armani-Exchange-style, if you get what I mean. The picture below shows the bag and it’s alternate color.

Let me know what you think about it. Yay or nay? Will post more stuff I bought from my holiday, believe me, there’s alot of them!


Firstly, sorry I have been MIA, missing in action. I have actually been travelling very much, therefore the lack of post. I will still be travelling coming March, so bare with me for my lack of post, but I will promise to update whenever possible. In the meantime, follow my Instagram for more of my outfit of the day post.

Back into topic:

Suspenders are fabric or leather straps worn over the shoulders to hold up trousers. Straps may be elasticated, either entirely or only at attachment ends and most straps are of woven cloth forming an X or Y shape at the back. So now you know what suspenders are, the question is do you wear them?

I remember when suspenders were big in the past where it would be worn in many formal events with an overcoat over it, however what about the modern society now? I remember people would ask what century are you from when you wore suspenders out a few years back, but are they making a comeback? Big menswear clothing stores are selling suspenders more often including H&M, Zara, Topman and many more are starting to sell them over the years with many different and interesting designs than the normal plain color.

Celebrities are also starting to rock the suspenders look. One of the significant celebs that wear them often is Louis Tomlinson from One Direction. You can see from his performance to his casual wear, suspenders are worn. This definitely affects the way teen starts to dress, including me since he is loved by millions of girls around the world.

Louis Suspender

In this time of age, suspenders somehow are not the first choice in dressing for male as some may think it is overdress while others do not fancy the idea of it. However, people with the daring personality to wear it wear them in formal or even casual occasions. I think suspenders are interesting fashion accessories that males should utilize, but keep in mind not everything goes with it. I personally won’t wear it with T-shirts but wear it with long sleeves button down shirts, but that is my opinion. Style is challenging the current fashion and make it your own, people remember you for your style! Where is your stand point on suspenders?

One question though, I am deciding whether to change this blog and talk more about lifestyle. It’s like I will focus on a variety of topics including the current trends and fashion, but I will add categories including vacation, food and others. Is it a good idea? Or should I just stick with this current only focus on fashion and trends blog? Comment would be appreciated.

I found this brand not too long ago and I really like to share it with you guys.

Geoffrey Beene, the leading men’s apparel and accessories company whose net profits fund cancer research and offers head-to-toe dressing options that combine intelligent design, quality, style and value.

The total value in combined funding to date from Geoffrey Beene is approximately $132,000,000.

So I am actually in awe how much this brand really is doing something positive to the community. My wish is to follow the example set here.

The Undercut Hairstyle

I show this post earlier and I was completely fascinated about it. Do check out the original post at here, by this amazing Damian Dazz

Reminiscent of those 1940′s dapper ‘do’s this style has been rising in popularity for quite some time now. I believe many celebrities are starting to have this sort of hairstyle and to be honest I think it very cool and edgy to have the undercut.


I guess One Direction’s Zayn Malik is rocking this hairstyle!

Since it is Chinese New Year, therefore I thought why not everyone could go get this hairstyle, stylish and edgy at the very same time. Well and for you info, I got it, wait for me to post it!

How to find a fitting suit?


I came across this a few days back and this is really what every guy needs when buying a suit! I see too many guys with the wrong fitting. You don’t need to be rich for a nice suit, but be aware of the fitting when you buy them.



Could resist not putting a Zac Efron picture in here. He is perfect though.
