The Bejewelled

Jewelry for men are a rage at the moment and surely overdoing them would get a lot of attention, but not for the good reasons. When it comes to jewelry, “less is more” is the mantra.

Low-waist Jeans

Popularised by the hip-hop culture, the low waist jeans are not very “hip”, anymore. The standard fits are always the classiest.
