New Shoe Collection and Collab by Great Brands + Wooster + Lardini

For the fifth capsule of the Greats + Wooster + Lardini 2017 collaboration, Nick  Wooster selected a mismatched navy and white premium canvas with a smooth leather lining. Along with a second silhouette that is constructed from a durable grey canvas decorated with silver 3M polka dots that subtly reflect the light.

Each style sits atop an elevated Margom outsole, adding a bit more height than Greats’ traditional Margom sole. Greats + Wooster + Lardini branding can be found on tan calf lining, along with Greats’ signature bar tack stitch in neon orange placed on the heel cup. The collection is hand crafted by Greats artisans in the Marche region of Italy.

Soccer Star ZLATAN Appears in own Underwear Commercial

If you are a soccer fan (or football fan, if you aren’t from the U.S.), then you know Zlatan.

Following in the footsteps of David Beckham, Zlatan now has his own brand, A-Z Sportswear. He is promoting it in a campaign that centers around the concept of gold – your own inner gold.

Gold belongs to anyone who dares to start something, and has the strength to see it through. Gold isn’t reserved for the precious few that can afford it. Because it’s inside all of us, just waiting to be uncovered. The more you push yourself, the brighter it shines. ”

Along this theme, A-Z’s boxers have gold on the inside.

The Inner Gold video features music by Swedish rapper Erik Lundin.

Home Improvements – Try a New Black Lock

Home-improvement projects sound like they could be big jobs. Big expensive jobs. But often you can make many improvements to your home simply by changing the small details.

Healthy Super Bowl Chili

The Super Bowl is not usually associated with losing weight, unless of course you are one of the football players in it.

It is even more likely you will gain weight it you are a man over 40. When men’s testosterone levels are low, they face muscle loss, low energy and loss of sex drive. Additionally, their body stores most of the food they eat as belly fat, says Clark Bartram, 53, Performance & Nutrition Industry Expert for Six Pack Abs, and Lead Advisor to the International Sports Sciences Association.

Rather than get testosterone treatments or “legal steroids” (with frequent side effects) from a physician, Bartram says, “Let food be your medicine.”

The fats in red meat as well as salmon and tuna boost testosterone, he said.  Other such foods are: almonds, garlic, eggs, cabbage, spinach, asparagus, avocados, bananas, watermelon, citrus fruit, grapes, and honey.

For Super Bowl chili, adding white button mushrooms are a key ingredient to blocking estrogen, the female version of testosterone.  Estrogen can cause a man to bloat, develop breast tissue and store more fat around the waist.  Rising estrogen levels also cause your belly fat to start producing a testosterone killing chemical that creates even more estrogen.
