Review of SWIG Executive Flask

For reviews.

The development of the “flask” as a beverage carrier is thought to be the brain-child of the Norwegians, who needed to carry their drinks with them for long distances because of their nomadic existence.  The flask itself was made from many different materials throughout the years like leather canteens, glass, pewter, silver, and even plastic.  Today, however, the flask has been transformed from drink carrier into a luxury accessory.

At SWIG Flasks, one such example of a flask that is a luxury accessory is the “Swig Executive Molded Blue Flask”.  The shiny stainless steel housing is seamless in order to prevent leaks and has a sexy, molded shape that is just the right size for the modern consumer.  What is different about the flask’s leather pouch is that it is hand-molded with wet leather, in order for the casing to have a custom fit.  Then, the leather is stitched along the top, side, and bottom edges to highlight the handmade construction.  The leather pouches are available in other colors like black, brown, orange, and Union Jack, which is representative of the British flag.  Each one is embossed with the SWIG logo.  The regular price of this particular flask at Swig Amazing Hip Flasks is 89 Euros, but even better is the sale price of 69 Euros.

The Swig Flask is nice- looking enough to display in a home or office, but the maker’s intention is for it to be loved and used when the need arises in your everyday life.  It is as much a luxury accessory as an Italian leather wallet or a handmade leather briefcase, making the Swig Flask a great gift for yourself or someone special.  If this particular one is not the style you are looking for, their flask store has a selection of ones with differently styles leather pouches or even a flask that is sans the leather pouch all together.

Close look at the recent Nike Air Huarache range

The Nike Air Huarache was first released in 1991 and enjoyed huge success due to its stylish and futuristic looks.  The sneaker was also made popular for its high comfort levels thanks to the use of a revolutionary neoprene sock lining. Nike ran with the now famous advertising slogan “Have you hugged your foot today?” the shoe was also in TV commercials featuring running star Michael Johnson. The last few years saw a massive comeback for the Huarache with the general public once again embracing the unique style. The now retro look is more popular than ever and Nike set work on re-releaseing some of the original colourways as well as many brand new designs. Here’s a closer look at a few of the recent stand out releases. If you love the retro style checkout this impressive range of Nike Huarache. Enjoy.

nike-sneakers-1 Nike Air Huarache – White / Sport Turquoise / University Gold

We had to include this new release as it’s actually not a new release at all. This recent re-release is one of the original colourways which was first released in 1991. The colours and style look just as great today as they did back then and it definitely has that retro feel. The white body is complimented perfectly with the original turquoise and gold inserts and is finished off nicely with the iconic heel cage.

Nike Air Huarache – Wolf Grey / Pool Blue

This addition is one of the brand new colourways which was released in June 2015. The cool grey tones and light blue inserts result in a futuristic look which manages to be both neutral and cool. We love the use of contrasting grey tones and close knit mesh toe vamp which helps further add contrast to the design. The white laces and dark grey heel cage really pop against the wolf grey body and Nike have even used a clear transparent outsole which looks fantastic.

Nike Air Huarache – Navy / Rattan

This navy and rattan addition was also released in June 2015 and adds a perfect toned down casual sneaker to the range. The design uses a really nice dark navy which is complimented with a neutral cream, featured around the heel and outsole. The pair comes with matching dark navy laces and heel cage which blend into the body well. To add contrast Nike has used a slightly lighter and brighter blue around the toe vamp. The result is a very well balanced classic new design which has been super popular.

5 Tips For Finding Best Of Big & Tall Men Clothing

Finding big and tall clothing for men used to be a hassle. That’s until the internet came along and made things far easier. These days, you have lots of options to find the clothing that you like that will fit right. Along the way, however, everyone can benefit from having a few handy tips to use. The following five pro tips can help assure that you get the right threads every time you shop.

big and tall suit

Get Professionally Sized

Before you start shopping online for big and tall clothing for men, it’s advised that you get professionally sized first. Make sure that you are aware of the difference in sizing charts between countries, too. For example, the U.S., Canada and Europe often use separate sizing charts. So once you have been professionally sized, make sure you write down what your sizes are to know for sure.

Shop At Stores With Lenient Returns Policies

Realize that clothing is the most commonly returned item that’s ordered online. Therefore, make sure you are shopping at stores that offer at least a 14-day return policy. Since you never really know how that shirt will fit or those pants will hang, it’s always good to know that you do have the option to return or exchange them if the fit isn’t right

Consider Subscription Boxes

You can also go the route of the personal shopper thanks to various online services these days. You submit your professional sizing charts and they start selecting outfits for you. Each month, a subscription box arrives that you can try before you buy. Services like this have really taken off in recent years, and they are a good way for you to get your own personal shopper without having to worry about spending time finding outfits.

Webrooming And Showrooming

According to Shopify, a large percentage of consumers are now using a tactic to get the best deals online and locally. It’s called webrooming (where you shop online and compare prices while at a local store), and showrooming (where you shop locally and then see if you can get a price match by finding a lower price at an online store). With clothing, you’d be surprised at what you can find. Try to webroom and showroom to gain the upper hand; your budget will thank you.

Find Brand Names You Love

The last tip is simple: find the brands that you love. Once you have purchased enough big and tall clothing, you will be able to recognize what brands you like more than others. Once you have made it this far, it will be easier to find the shirts, pants, shoes and accessories that fit you best. Above and beyond all, have a good time with your shopping and dress to impress.
