Your not going to stand in a line, throw a punch, or sleep in a tent over night for clothes. Maybe a I-phone 6 [plus] or a 60 inch flat screen, but a parka…no. Good thing you don’t have to, today continues the retail obsessed tradition we have made a must. So stay in bed, grab a hot drink and your laptop. It’s CYBER MONDAY! And to save you even more time I have done the research for you, here are the top 5 sites offering the best and most stylish deals.

5. J-Crew Factory 

I know factory stores don’t get as much love as they should, but i’m here to tell you, they are a hidden gem. Yes you have to scroll pass some hideous sweaters and last years unwanted shoes, but the search is worth the reward. Today J-Crew Factory is offering 50 percent off everything plus 10 percent and free shipping. Doesn’t get much better then that folks.

4. DSW 

Many guys think DSW is a store strictly for women, but I’m here to tell you it’s not. Before I buy any shoes I run them through DSW search engine. This place offers some of the best prices on great shoes everyday, but add Cyber Monday to the mix and the deals are even better. The shoe site is currently offering 10$ off $49, 20$ off $99, and 50$ off $199. This is on top of their everyday low prices, and they allow you to double coupons.

3. H&M

Another place that offers low prices everyday, but today you can take an extra 30 percent off your purchase. What a steal. Check out their website for every trend and deal you could ever want. Jeans as low as $10, and boots for 40 bucks. Did I  mention the free shipping.

2. GAP

Classic Americana, this is where to go when you want a great pair of khakis or a nice oxford shirt. Gap has been supplying us with our uniforms for years, and with their new Dress Normal campaign it only gets better. GAP, Banana Republic, and Old Navy are offering 40 percent off your entire purchase today only. And if you spend more then 50 bucks, you get free shipping.

1. Zara 

This is the modern mans one stop shop for everything stylish. What ever you need Zara has got it and believe me it will be great. The trendy site offers everything from shoes to coats. Although Zara is not offering 50 percent off everything, they have selected a generous amount of items that are all half off.

Canadian Tuxedo: Denim on Denim

The streets  have been looking like a rodeo this summer with all the denim on denim, but fyi it ain’t going no where. For the proper english speakers, it’s here to stay. I know all this denim talk is taking you back to that awful matching outfit JT and Brittany wore to an award show in the 90’s.  Don’t worry, It ain’t going down like that. This fall the Canadian Tuxedo, or denim shirt and denim pants combo is going to be huge. And I’m here to show you how to wear it without looking like a dumb ass in a jean shirt. You don’t have to be Kayne West to pull this off, the average Joe can make the Canadian Tuxedo look great here are some options. 

Mix and match the colors, dark denim on top light on bottom or vice verses. Try different shades see which works best for you. My personal opinion is dark jeans always look better, but it depends on your body type. If  your legs are smaller/ shorter try the light. If your heavier in the legs this is the one time you should go to the dark side. 

Light on dark

If you want to ease into it this look try wearing the denim unbuttoned with either a white tee or a graphic tee, they both look great.  Or if your ready to go head first,  button that baby all the way up leaving the top undone. 

As far as jean fit, the skinner the better. Guys if your not in to skinnies, try slim straights but this is one trend that looks best with a sleek jean. This can go very wrong very quickly if the jeans are too big. At the end of the day it all boils down to what your comfortable wearing. You guys got this, don’t embarrass me and please don’t go out side looking like Jay Leno.

Let’s Talk About Jeans

Ok guys, here’s something we wear EVERYDAY…not underwear but jeans. Wherever  you are right now look around, if there’s people present I can bet someone is wearing a pair of jeans. It’s the most common worn item to date.  A great pair of jeans can and will change your life. I know what your thinking [too big of a promise, it’s just jeans] but I beg to differ. Most guys have at most three pairs of jeans or wear the same ones everyday, so if your going to be a week long jean wearier make sure you look great in them. There are tons of different styles of jeans, i’ll go over the most basic.

We have boot-cut jeans which is a staple in any guys closet. The boot-cut typically looks good on everyone. Fitted in the waist, loose throughout the thigh and leg, wider opening at the bottom. These can be worn with sneakers, dress shoes, tennis shoes, and of course boots.

Then we have straight legs, these also are flattering to MOST body types, but I will warn you. If you are on the heavier side these might not be for you, but like I always say that’s what dressing rooms are for. Give em a try and see how they look on you. Straights fit just like its name…straight. Narrower in the waist, thigh, and leg, straight all the way down. Looks good with narrower shoes, such as Converse, Toms, and Sperrys

.

And then we have the skinny jeans, the body’s best and worst friend. Skinnies are worn by a lot of guys now-a-days, there no longer reserved just for the punk rocker, now the kid who sits in the third row and talks to no one in the class wears them. I say they can be your best friend because they can fit extremely well and make guys with skinny legs such as myself look kick ass! On the other hand, they can be your worst friend. I myself believe the target audience is in the name, “SKINNY.” IF you had fat stubby legs skinnies are not for you. They won’t look good on you and will just hurt to wear. But of course, don’t knock it till you try it, that’s what the dressing room is for. Give em a shot, I recommend trying on several different sizes to see what works best, if it doesn’t look pleasing to the eye, TAKE THEM OFF. If it doesn’t look good in the store it wont look good in your closet or on you. But guys with thinner legs go for it, if your on the shorter side I wouldn’t go with the super skinny because those can cause you to appear smaller. No guy want’s to be told “you look so tiny in those jeans.” NO guy.

There you have it, these are the most common jeans seen in department stores. Remember to always use good judgement when buying jeans. Always ask is your body type right for the jeans you are buying. And don’t be afraid to try something new, go in the dressing room and check your self out. No one has to see you. And remember you don’t have to wear the same ol’ tired jeans you have always worn, don’t be afraid to spend a little more money on your next jean purchase. A great pair of jeans can and will change your life. Check out the video below it gives you more advice on finding the perfect pair of jeans.

Take away: at the end of the day fashion is about staying true to your self. So make sure your comfortable and happy in what ever your wearing. Beacuse as Oprah says, “Anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are—you will never, ever reach your personal potential.”
