cabana shirtThe New Wave of Cabana Shirts, “The season of Cabana shirts — also known as Cuban collar shirts, which call to mind mojitos and cigars, and are often emblazoned with kitschy symbols of tropical vacations (palm trees, flamingos, hibiscuses) — has arrived. This summer ushers in a more urbane approach to the classic warm-weather staple: quieter prints and subtler colors that could have been worn by the hip wandering youth in Jim Jarmusch’s 1980 gritty New York film “Permanent Vacation” instead of by a tourist on a beach holiday.” via Tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com

Viking Mythology: Lessons from Thor, the God of Thunder, “Thor — Giant-Slayer and God of Thunder — is the most well-known Norse god in our modern world. The Marvel comic books and films have of course spurred his fame, but they’ve also hampered our understanding of the Thor that Viking people worshiped and revered and looked to for protection. For one thing, rather than the flaxen-haired, neatly-groomed Marvel version, Thor was a red-haired, long-bearded half-giant.” via Artofmanliness.com

toys 1980s1980’s Favored Toys and Their Effect on Now Grown Boys, “There were a lot of great toys in the 1980s, and ironically, what we played with then, can somewhat effect what we are now, or at least give us anther perk in a way. Now that does not mean if we played with toy firemen, we grew up to be a fireman. It is not quite that simple. Consider this to be more like someone who generally liked to solve a puzzle, now finds a way to still do that in their adult life. A man, who led an active lifestyle as a child, might still enjoy an active life as an adult.” Dude Living

 

 

bar drink ideas20 Essential Bar Terms Every Guy Should Know, ““Shaken, not stirred.” It’s the motto of the classic Bond (that’s James Bond) martini, but why shaken over stirred? You’ve looked over countless drink menus, but stick with the usual because it’s the only one you know. We don’t blame you. Drink menus are riddled with countless terms that are confusing and ordering often feels like a shot in the dark. Even when you do find a drink interesting enough to try, it’s based solely on the name (boulevardier, anyone?). Allow us to make your drink ventures a little more attainable. We’ve compiled a list of the more common bar terms so that the next time you come across a drink menu, you can order with confidence.” via Ties.com
