There is perhaps no sport in the history of mankind has invited more fashion faux pas than golf.  From the underdressed fellow in jeans to the ridiculously dressed in plaid pants tucked into high argyle socks, a golf course can be brimming with poor outfit choices.

If you’re planning to hit the links now that the weather is warming up, we present you with our outfit inspiration to help you do it with style.

The Pants – The subtle camouflage print gives a nod to some of the more outlandish golf styles while ensuring you still look put together.

The Shirt – The orange and green accents liven up this white polo, and the zipper gives it a sporty feel and will help you stand out from the button down masses.

The Shoes – From the board room to the fairway, you’ll always look polished with a classic wingtip style.

The Accessories – The hat will protect you from both the sun and the excessive branding you’ll find on most golf caps.  The orange and white belt ties nicely with the colors of the shirt and it sporty vibe.

The Socks – No outfit would be complete without a pair of Walk On Socks!  Walk On The Wild Side compliments this outfit well.

If you're like us, Mondays are a never ending battle.  First, tearing yourself from under the covers feels like a feet of herculean strength.  Then, as your second (maybe third or fourth depending on the weekend) cup of coffee becomes a distant memory, the thought of just a five minute nap preoccupies a good chunk of the afternoon. Finally, you return home and convince yourself that playing flappy bird is a wise way to relax before passing out from exhaustion at 2 a.m.

The fall of the weekend and rise of the workweek may not be entirely to blame for these groggy Mondays - your sleep habits are likely culprits as well.  Fear not - we have six easy tips that will have you sleeping like a baby by next week!

Sweet dreams!

1. Remember the 90 minute rule

Your sleep cycle contains five phases, divided into four stages of non-REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, followed by a stage of REM sleep (in which we dream).  Each of these cycles takes roughly 90 minutes, followed by a brief period when you’re relatively wakeful, before a new cycle starts again.

The key to waking up feeling alert and rested instead of groggy and tired is to wake up during one of these wakeful periods.  You can count back from when you need to wake up in 90 minute intervals to find the ideal time to hit the hay.  You can also enter your wake up time on the site http://sleepyti.me and it’ll do the work for you.

2. Stick to the same bed time and wake-up time every day

That’s right, even (gasp!) on the weekends.  Maintaining a consistent sleep schedule will help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

3. Design the perfect bedroom

The ideal temperature for sleep is cool, between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit.  It should also be relatively quiet and free of light.  Blackout curtains are ideal for keeping unwanted sunlight from creeping in in the morning.

4. Limit food and alcohol close to bed time

Your body isn’t designed to be digesting while you sleep, so a large meal close to bed time may end up keeping you awake.  And although alcohol may make you feel sleepy at first, when your buzz wears off later on it could cause you to wake up

5. Ditch the laptop, tablet, cellphone, TV etc. etc.

You get the gist, just like during takeoff and landing, you need to turn off all electronic devices before bed.   The light emanating from electronic screens activates the brain and makes it difficult to sleep

6. Let the sun shine in…then block it out

Ditch the sunglasses and expose yourself to sunlight in the morning and during the day.  About an hour before bedtime you should dim the lights around your house, it’ll help your body produce melatonin and realize it’s time for bed.

Shirt collars aren’t something that come up often in men’s fashion advice, but when you’re looking to create an outfit that will make you stand out from the crown the devil is in the details. 

Shirt collar options have branched out a lot in recent years with spread collars spinning off into medium and extreme spreads and the return of styles that had long fallen out of favor like the snap-tab collar.  For simplicity’s sake, we’re going to limit the discussion to the broad terms of narrow and wide spread collars and let you pick your favorites from there.

The general rule in choosing a shirt collar is to counterbalance your face shape with the aim of creating proportion.  You’ll also want to pair it with a tie knot that matches the width of the collar spread to complete the effect.

The Round Face

Someone with a round face generally has fuller checks and a shorter neck.  If you fall into this category you’ll want to opt for a narrow collar spread to give the perception of a longer more defined face.  The same concept applies to the tie – you should pair the shirt with a skinny tie with a narrow knot like the four-in-hand.

Here’s an example of Jack Black playing by these rules.


The Angular Face

This shape usually comes in two flavors, high cheekbones ending in a pointed chin or a longer face with a pronounced U-shaped chin.  Either way, people with this face type will want to wear wider spread collars to soften and widen the appearance of their facial features.  A full tie knot like the Windsor pairs well with these collars. 

This picture of Ashton Kutcher should give you the right idea.


The Oval Face

Folks that fall into this category are in luck.  Their faces are longer than they are wide with the cheek bones set at the widest point.  This symmetry affords a lot of flexibility in choosing a shirt collar allowing you to wear both wide and narrow spread collars equally well.

Will Smith is a good example of this.  Here you can see him in his ultra-narrow Men In Black collar and tie alongside him pulling off a wide spread collar with a Windsor knot.

There was once a time when the only pants a man had in his closet were a pair of blue jeans, tan khakis and proper suit pants in gray and navy.  Thankfully those days have passed and a bit of color is now a welcome addition to a man’s wardrobe.

Now that spring is here, it’s the perfect time to lighten things up by trying out some colored chinos if you haven’t already.  While neons are good for some, subdued shades are a much more appealing option for most guys out there.  With that in mind, we made sure the wattage wasn’t on full blast in these seven Walk On Socks approved picks.

When it comes to looking good, a nice wardrobe is key, but being in good shape is even more important. With beach season just around the corner, you might be considering putting that new year’s resolution to head to the gym back into action. We’ve put together eight tips on gym etiquette to make sure it’s a pleasant experience for you and everyone around you.

No Posing

We get it, you’ve been to the gym every day this week and are feeling good about yourself. But all of the mirrors in a gym are there for you to check your form, not to reflect the flexing wonder that is you.

Air Drying Is Unacceptable

Again, we get it, you’re feeling good about yourself and comfortable in your own skin, and that’s totally cool. However, most people are at best uninterested and worst uncomfortable seeing you in your birthday suit for any extended period of time. Nudity in the locker room should be restricted to the five seconds it takes for you to put on your underwear…please tell us you brought underwear.

Dress Sharp

The sweat stained tee shirt stuck to the bottom of your pajama drawer does not make acceptable gym wear. You always want to look your best when you’re out as you never know who you’ll meet, even when you’re at the gym. A clean pair of shorts and a tee shirt is always a good choice.

Be Civilized

Try to keep grunting and yelling to a minimum. We know you’re working hard, but primeval screams should be reserved for those flipping monster truck tires or pulling freight trains…with their teeth.

Keep It Down

If you’re wearing earbuds with the volume on 100, you may as well be carrying a boombox on your shoulder. If you can still hear the music with the earbud an arm’s length away from you it’s too loud for the gym.

Clean Up After Yourself

Put the weights back where they belong, a scavenger hunt for the missing 25 pond dumbbell shouldn’t be part of anyone’s routine. And we shouldn’t have to say it, but always, always, always wipe down equipment when you’re done.

Respect Personal Space

If there’s a row of treadmills open, there’s no need to plant yourself directly next to someone else. Your neighbor will thank you for the buffer space then you’re both pouring sweat on mile ten.

No Cellphones

Unless the conversation ends with “I’m on my way to the hospital now” or “I’ll be there as soon as I get your bail money together” the conversation can wait till later. Talking on the phone is distracting to everyone else around you, and worse yet holds up people waiting if you’re doing it while on a machine.
