Jacket folding without wrinkles
If you consider yourself as a stylish jet-setting man, this is a serious hack that will ensure your blazers make it half way across the world without looking like the Queen’s face (oops, but you get what I mean). May the force be with you.
How to determine if pants fit without trying them on
I’ve been in some pretty uncomfortable changerooms, but I will spare you the details. One simple way to determine if your newfound pants are the perfect fit is to use your forearm. The length from your fist to your elbow is said to correlate with your waist size, ensure that the button and zip are done all the way. If your arm slides in comfortably (no dirty thoughts please!), so should your buttocks.
Freeze your denim
In a previous article I briefly mentioned this highly controversial hack, and it has actually worked for me even the CEO of Levi’s jeans endorses it. Washing your denim on a regular basis degrades the natural colour, but not washing the at all is also not a good idea. So the solution is pretty simple, chuck them in a freezer overnight, this kills odour causing bacteria and will assist in retain the denim’s natural dye.
Definitely one of my favourite hacks and it is pretty simple, re-soak it with hot water and hair conditioner(don’t ask) for five minutes before stretching it back to size gently. It will revert back to its normal size and smell quite feminine, I guess it’s a small price to pay.
That yellow stain on the inside of your white shirts can be quite dreadful, these are common stains caused by the build-up of sweat, dead skin and hair products. The only effective way is to apply a concentrated amount of stain remover on the collar and leave it to set over night. Hand wash as normal and repeat the process with the aid of a toothbrush to rub in the stain remover each time.
