  4. In the world of men's fashion, one thing is for certain - you can never own enough t shirts. Whether you wear them to beat the scorching summer heat, or as an integral element of your comfy and warm layered up winter outfit, the utility of a nice t shirt cannot be stressed enough. What's more? Given the variety of t shirt styles out there, you can always switch them up according to your wants and needs. In other words, just when you think you have enough for every occasion, you realise that your summer (or winter) wardrobe still has room for one more t shirt. However, amongst all the various styles, hues, and fits available, there's one thing that should remain constant - a comfortable fabric. After all, you can never be completely comfortable wearing a t shirt if you don't like the way it feels on your skin, right? And when it comes to looking for the top-tier t shirt fabrics out there, your list should start and end with just one name - Supima cotton. Why, you ask? Well, its extra long fibres mean that Supima cotton is FOUR times stronger and TWICE as soft as regular cotton! Not only that, Supima cotton fibres also absorb colour much better than their regular cotton counterparts, resulting in deeper hues that retain their brilliance for a longer period of time. So, if you feel like investing in t shirts that last longer, feel softer, look much brighter and more vibrant than normal cotton t shirts, we've got your back. Here's our list of the best Supima cotton t shirts you need to know about, because they'll definitely take your style game to another level! Check Out The Best Supima Cotton T Shirts Out There 1.

  5. If tying a tie comes across as a herculean task for you, and you would much rather avoid it than go through this hassle every single day, then this article is for you. Here is a definitive guide to learn different kinds of tie knots which makes learning it breezy: 1. A Full Windsor Knot With the most prominent triangular finish, the Windsor knot is great for interviews. An easily intimidating knot, it can easily be tied without any difficulty. Here is a map that'll show how you should tie it. © MensXP 1. First, raise your shirt collar and drape the tie around the nape of your neck, so the wide end is on the right and extends around 12 inches further than the narrow end. 2. Next, cross the wide length over the narrow part. 3. Now, pull the wide section up through the opening at the neck, then down. 4. Then, pass the wide section underneath to the right of the narrow section with the other side facing out. 5. Cross the wide length over and to the left of the narrow one with the correct side facing out. 6. Pull the wide end up through the opening at the neck. 7. When bringing it down, pass it through the loop at the front. 8. Holding the dangling parts with one hand, slide the knot carefully up toward the collar with the other hand until snug, then lower the collar. 2. The Half Windsor Knot The knot, in presentation, is smaller than a full Windsor but works great with medium length ties and dress shirts. © MensXP For a Half Windsor knot: 1. Cross the wide section over the narrow one. 2. Next, cross the wide section underneath the narrow one so the wrong side is facing out. 3. Bring the wide end up and over to the left. 4. Pull through the opening at the neck so that it lies on the wrong end to the right. 5. Then, bring the wide section over the narrow part from right to left with the correct side facing up. 6. Bring the wide end up through the neck loop again. 7. When bringing it down, insert it through the loop at the front of the collar. 8. Adjust the knot by sliding it upward with one hand and holding the tails with the other. 9. Lower the shirt collar to complete the look. 3. A Pratt Otherwise known as the Shelby knot, the knot is best suited for lightweight and medium length ties. © MensXP To get this knot, follow these steps: 1. Firstly, raise collar and drape the tie wrong side up with the wide length hanging on the right side roughly 12 inches lower than the narrow end. 2. Next, cross the wide part of the tie under the narrow part. 3. Then, bring the wide end up and loop it down through the opening at the neck and tighten. 4. Then, you should cross the wide end to the right with the correct side up. 5. Pull it up through the neck opening. 6. Bring it down through the knot loop. 7. Slide and adjust the knot gently and lower the shirt collar to complete the process. 4. Four In Hand The complicated knot works well with heavy fabrics. Just wear it with a standard dress shirt and it'll look good. © MensXP 1. To cop this tie, drape the tie around the neck so the wide end is on the right side and extends roughly 12 inches below the narrow section. 2. Then, ring the wide part of the tie across the narrow part. 3. Next, bring the wide part under the narrow part. 4. Bring the wide side back over the top of the narrow part. 5. Bring the wide side up through the large loop at the neck. 6. With a loose hold on the knot, insert the wide end in a downward direction through the loop in front. 7. Holding the bottom narrow part of the tie with one hand, slide the knot upward with the other until neat and snug.
  6. The shade-y business isn't for everyone (forgive the pun). And most people certainly can't pull off shades. But that's only because they don't know what works for them and what doesn't. A major factor that you need to account for is your face shape. If you understand the dynamics of a pair of sunglasses and the shape of one's face, you can pull off shades like you've always wanted to. Here's a quick guide for you to help you get the right pick: 1. Round Face © Instagram With a round face, ideally stay away from anything that makes it look even rounder. Instead, choose glasses with angular frames like a square or a rectangle. These give an edge that balances out the roundness of your face. These frames will work on your face like a charm. 2. Square Face © Instagram For a defined jawline with symmetrical proportions, your face would ideally fit in the square face shape category. You obviously don't want to look like a square-faced robot. Here, round glasses, break the line and will suit your face best. 3. Oblong Or A Heart-shaped Face © Instagram Both face types have sharp, prominent cheekbones, that need complementing with other prominent structures. Aviators look the best with these face types. Try reflectors for a groovy effect. 4. Oval Face © Instagram If you have an oval face, you're one of the lucky ones. This blessed face shape works well almost any kind of shades. Take a cue from Ranveer Singh and go wild with the quirky ones.
  7. We understand that a major reward for all those who lift is showing your hard work (muscle) to other people. And why not? Lifting is not an activity accomplished overnight. It takes years of training and altering your diet to reach the ripped goal posters stuck on the inside of your bathroom door. And when you finally start to begin to feel ripped after countless, endless and more importantly breathless workout sessions, you obviously want to...scream it out loud, lift your tshirt everywhere you go, and post #gains on Instagram. However, you may be in a position where all of this is not possible. For example if you're a part of a professional setting or say in college where stripping is not possible at all. Then, instead you could wear clothes that help you get the definition by following these tips: 1. Avoid Graphic Tees © kartikaaryan Graphic tees are designed to conceal any kind of bulges. They would work best for a guy who wants to hide them. You, on the other hand, want to flaunt your bulges which means graphic tees are your enemy. 2. Embrace Solid Snug Sweats © fktgram Make solid snug tees your best friend. These kind of silhouettes help make your abs become more pronounced, which always helps. You just have to wear a solid tee and watch eyes linger around as you walk through hallways. 3. Wear A Buttoned-Up Shirt © fktgram A counter-intuitive move but a buttoned up shirt will give you more definition than a buttoned down shirt. It always leave space for people to imagine your muscles which is a good thing. 4. Roll Up The Sleeves © johnabrahamfanaccount If you roll up your sleeves, it immediately adds more structure and definition to your outfit. Case in point: John Abraham with his sleeves rolled up. 5. Go For Snug Fitted Formals © vainglorious Snug fitted formals make a better case against baggy ill-fitted formals for obvious reasons. Make sure you buy the right sizes when you shop for formals. Muscles pop out with the right size. 6. Layering © hritikroshan Layering is a great way to define things underneath. Again, it's important to stick to the right size and not overdo it.
  8. Whether you favour the clean shaven look, proudly maintain a bushy beard, or sport a facial hair style that falls somewhere in between these two, it's impossible to give up shaving completely, at least not if you want to look well groomed! Although men today gravitate towards the electric trimmer to help 'shave' seconds off their morning shaving ritual as they rush to work, they can't hope to match up to the smooth, close shave that the good old safety razor offers. The O.G. of shaving implements, the safety razor was the first shaving tool curated to reduce the reliance on professional barbers and put the power into your own hands (quite literally!). The origins of the safety razors we know today, i.e., a handle attached at right angles to a head in which a removable blade can be placed, can be traced back to early 19th century. Including a protective layer between the blade edge and the user's skin dramatically reduced the level of skill needed to shave injury-free, adding a 'safety element' to the design. Since then, the safety razor has evolved into a highly specialised piece of shaving tech that provides professional-level shaves right in your own bathroom. So, if you take your appearance seriously, adding the best safety razor to your grooming routine is the smartest decision you can take. And on that note, we've compiled this helpful list of the best options out there, to make your choice a little easier, and your morning shave much smoother (and safer). Does Your Shaving Kit Contain The Best Safety Razor? 1. Vikings Blade The Chieftain Safety Razor © Amazon When you think of Vikings, the image that comes up is of fierce warriors ready for battle, and this safety razor from Vikings Blade arms you for the battle against bad grooming!

  11. If dry skin constantly troubles you no matter how much you moisturize and have a regular skin routine in place, it's probably because of other factors like your stubborn skin type and harsh weather conditions. However, lucky for you, it is easily fixable. Here is a list of things you can do to tackle the problem of stubborn dry skin, so you never have those icky cracks breaking out in the middle of your skin surface: 1. Take Shorter, Spaced Out Showers In the Winter, long, hot showers might sound enticing, but they have a negative impact on your skin: hot water reduces the skin's moisture and further removes the natural oil in your skin that is responsible for making your skin stay soft and smooth. So, if you really want to commit to getting better skin, you need to try lowering the temperature a few notches. Secondly, limit your showers to one a day, especially in the Winter when the dry air is already harming your skin by making it dry. 2. Use Other Moisturizing Products Too © Getty Images Your grooming routine would at least comprise of soap, body wash, and body cleanser. Make sure you replace them with products that promise to hydrate your skin and lock in the moisture. 3. Moisturize Everywhere © Getty Images Hydration is not only necessary for the face and hands. You should hydrate your entire body, from your face to your feet. 4. Switch To Balms In The Winter © Getty Images Having a moisturizing routine in the Winter is great but if it's not working well for your skin in keeping it hydrated, it's time you switch up things a bit. Balms usually work better than moisturizer as there are more chances of the goodness to seep into your skin with a moisturizer instead of a cream. Petroleum jelly is also a good option. 5. If You Use The Heater Frequently In The Winter, You Also Need To: Add water in the room. Heaters tend to make the skin dry and scarred. Adding water in a bowl and or starting the steamer in one corner keeps the humidity in check. Don't forget to shut the door so the moisture stays put in the room.

Move aside movie dates or eating at a fancy restaurant, you obviously need something above de rigueur routine. If you prefer staying at home instead of going out, you should definitely read on. Staying at home does not have to mean no effort for your date; it only means if you plan smartly you can surprise your boo with these offbeat ideas. These are super budget-friendly also. 1. Trying Out Face Sheet Masks Together © Instagram Face Sheet masks come in different fruit-based flavours. The best part of these masks is that it literally takes no effort in taking on and off.

However, this mundane activity can be turned into a date if you do it together and watch a great show in the waiting period and then take it off together. Fun! 4. The Lipstick-Mapping Game © Getty Images We're not asking you to wear it out in the open. A lipstick can be used to scribble on each other's face for fun or could be used for an entirely different scheme of things.

Mani-Pedi Sessions © Getty Iamges Another fun date option is going for a manicure and pedicure session together and chilling together whilst both of you get cleaned up.

You can switch it up with a double breasted jacket and opt for sneakers or Chelsea boots to make it a little casual. Experiment with prints , colors and accessories. You wouldn't want to look like you're off to a business meeting. You can also ditch your shirts and go for a turtle neck or a graphic tee underneath your tailored piece to add a touch of understated style. 2. Brunch Date © Instagram/vickykaushal09 As casual as brunch is, it's good to look a little put together for a date. So, showing up in pajamas may not be the best idea.

Go for slip-ons or Chelsea boots for an understated yet stylish look. 3. Post-Work Date © Instagram /ishabhansali After a long day of work, the only V-day plans you'd want would be to spend some quite time over a bottle of wine and some Netflix.

  15. Regardless of what 'Game of Thrones' might have you believe, winters are actually coming to an end. And with summers right around the corner, the one fashion staple that all Indian men should be thinking about investing in are T-shirts. After all, not only are t-shirts the go-to choice of attire for Indian men during the scorching summer heat (owing to just how comfortable and breezy they tend to be), but they also require the least amount of effort to pull off. The fact that you can also use them to layer up your other outfits only ends up being an added bonus. And so for those of you out there planning on upgrading your summer wardrobe, here are five tips you absolutely should be adhering to before purchasing your next tee, so as to make sure that you are only rocking the best t-shirts for men out there, and nothing else. 1. Invest In Solid Colours © Official Instagram/Kartik Aaryan Sometimes, it's best to stick to basics. While printed t-shirts (especially floral, monochrome and abstract prints) are becoming quite popular, they will never prove to be as useful to you as their solid coloured counterparts. After all, putting on a solid tee with a pair of trousers or washed jeans personifies that golden fashion rule 'less is more!' Another benefit of investing in solid colours? You get unlimited options to layer up your outfits. After all, if your wardrobe comes equipped with the best white t-shirts for men, or the best black t-shirts for men out there, you've pretty much stocked your wardrobe with the staples needed to create different looks. 2. Make Sure They Are Made Of The Right Fabric © Official Instagram/Vicky Kaushal When it comes to the t-shirts you are planning on wearing, you cannot afford to ignore their fabric composition. After all, since you'll be mostly wearing them during the summers, you cannot afford to opt for fabrics that won't be comfortable to wear. This is where opting for t-shirts that are made from Supima cotton makes for a great choice. Besides being twice as softer than regular cotton t-shirts (which takes care of your comfort), Supima cotton t-shirts are also up to FOUR TIMES stronger than their regular counterparts, which effectively makes them more durable and resistant to wear-and-tear. 3. Don't Forget About The Fit © Official Instagram/Varun Dhawan While the absolute best way of ensuring you get a tee that fits you to a T (pun not intended!) is to have it be custom-made, that's neither a practical nor an affordable option. As such, paying attention to your T-shirt's fit is highly advisable. A lot of this also depends on the type of body you harbour. For instance, if you have a bulky and well-defined physique, then opting for a tight fitting tee that will help accentuate your body makes sense. If you happen to be more on the skinny side, then going for a loose fitting tee is more advisable. 4. Stick To Your Budget © Pexels Being fashion-forward, not compromising on your comfort and sticking to your budget are not mutually exclusive events. In fact, you don't have to go over your budget just to stock up on some quality and premium t-shirts. Fortunately, there are quite a few brands out there, all of which curate t-shirts of a premium build, that also happen to be affordable and cost-effective. 5. Look At The Bigger Picture © Official Instagram/Ranveer Singh Buying a t-shirt in isolation makes for a rookie fashion mistake that an alarmingly large number of Indian men tend to commit. The T-shirt you purchase should not be looked at in isolation. You need to be looking at the bigger picture as well, including the clothes you will be layering up your tee with, the accessories you are going to be rocking (wrist watches, caps, sunglasses), and the type of body you harbour.
  16. Long hair for men is a style statement that will always be 'in' - irrespective of whether celebrities are indulging in it or not. If you've had long hair, ever, you'd know what we're talking about. It feels amazing to have a head full of hair that's strong, long, and thick. You can leave it open, tie it in a man-bun, or try more unorthodox styles - the kinds that will always help you turn heads. But the problem is, it takes a long time for men to grow hair (or so we think). Keeping that in mind, we have compiled a list of 7 things to do everyday that will help you grow your hair much faster (and thicker too). 1. It might sound weird, but don't wash your hair every day. Most of us like washing our hair really frequently, because in a country like India where the climate makes us sweat bucketloads, that is just a natural urge. However, most of us also don't know that washing our hair very frequently strips hair off the natural oils, which is detrimental to hair growth, and also aids to hairfall. So, try not washing your hair every day with shampoo. Try washing it on alternate days (because cleanliness is important as well). © Getty Images 2. Pay more attention to conditioner, as compared to shampoo. If you wash your hair everyday, please make sure you don't use shampoo, but always use a conditioner post wash. That will keep dryness away, and also help you control hairfall, thereby aiding hair growth. © Getty Images 3. Eat a lot of protein. No matter what kind of grooming routine you follow, if you don't ingest the right nutrients, you will never be able to grow your hair at an optimal rate. A good breakfast with eggs and chicken can never be underestimated. Try protein rich veggies like broccoli if you're vegetarian. It will work amazingly well for your hair, and also your muscles. © Getty Images 4. Make sure you're getting all the vitamins and minerals. Meet a dietitian and figure out whether you need multivitamin supplements. Plus, most Indians are Vitamin B and D deficient, which is also responsible for less hair growth and also a bunch of other problems. Try taking fish oil supplements. © Getty Images 5. Start getting a champi done once a week. The power of a good ol' hair massage with warm coconut/almond/olive oil is immense, and it will do wonders for your hair growth, and overall scalp condition. © Getty Images 6. This may sound ridiculous, but shift to silk/satin pillowcases. When we're growing our hair, pillow fabrics with harsh materials can result in a lot of hairfall and tangling. Using a silk/satin pillowcase can sort that out for you. © Getty Images 7. Know when to comb your hair. Never comb when your hair is dripping wet, because that's the time your hair is at its most vulnerable state. If you have curly hair or ringlets, try combing it as less as possible, because it messes up the natural texture and flow of the hair (do head massages to take care of the blood circulation that usually happens because of combing). If you have straight or wavy hair, comb with a wide toothed brush for best results minus the breakage. © Getty Images Try these and see your mane grow bigger and bigger within a short span of time!
  17. The Internet is a fierce battleground for users, clicks, attention, and audience. Competition surrounds your community from all angles and new threats constantly emerge. The Internet has leveled the playing field for local businesses, solopreneurs, and small organizations which means more people than ever are competing for users. Online communities are no different, and as companies realize the growing power of communities, you too may face more challenges. Online communities are growing faster than ever: IDC predicts worldwide online communities market to grow to $1.2 billion in 2019 According to research by Leader Networks, twenty-three percent of marketers who have online communities indicate that the size of their communities doubled in the past year. How is your community competing against your competitors? Is your community growing or stagnating relative to your competitors? In this blog post, we identify core concepts of competitive strategy that stretch from traditional theory to unique methods of winning for communities. Theory of Competition The broadly-accepted understanding of competition in the business world rests on the seminal work by Professor Michael Porter, when he mapped out the origins of competitive forces in his 1979 book “How Competitive Forces Shape Strategy.” Fundamentally, all strategies for Porter distill into two basic options: Build on what you already do, or do something no one else can do. You can compete by doing what everyone else is doing but be more efficient, such as offering higher quality content, a better user experience, or having a lower price of member acquisition. Or, you can expand the pie by forging a new position in the marketplace, such as staking out an untapped niche or developing a unique service. What’s your current competitive strategy: be better at what you’re already doing and your competitors, or to do something completely new? Emerging Theories A new strategy on competition is emerging that is just as potent as Porter’s competitive forces. It’s especially relevant for online communities in the digital age: reacting opportunistically to emerging possibilities. Discovery-driven planning is the field’s most recent thinking. It was introduced 20 years ago in works like Tim Luehrman’s “Strategy as a Portfolio of Real Options” that talked about flexibility as a strategy. The idea was also introduced in the more recent “Stop Making Plans: Start Making Decisions” by Michael Mankins and Richard Steel, which argued for continuous strategic planning cycles. Online communities are impacted by – and can seize advantage of – fluctuating factors: Technical advances and digital disruptions Disruptions in your industry The faster you react to market or technological change, the greater your advantage will become over time. What disruption recently impacted your industry or niche? How can you capitalize on the opportunity? Application to Online Communities Online communities are at an especially powerful intersection of customers, superusers, industry experts, and brand representatives. By assembling a broad mix of users, you gain a source of competitive knowledge and crowd wisdom unmatched by traditional businesses. Market intelligence – Harness the power of crowds by letting your members feed you real-time market intelligence on the industry, market trends, and competitors. Use technology to your advantage – Become an expert on utilizing your Invision platform as a technological advantage, whether you’re increasing visitor registrations with Post Before Registering, adding in store filters in Commerce, or enabling the application manifest settings for faster access on smartphones. Collaborative ideation – Collaborate with users early in the design process to create services or products that are highly-differentiated. Co-Creation – Channel your user’s expertise, enthusiasm, and product knowledge into co-created content such as tutorials, support answers, industry news, contests, and more. Brand Ambassadors – Turn your membership’s most passionate users into brand ambassadors to provide outreach and personalized connections. Conclusion Communities are challenged and tested every day by a multitude of competitors that compete for users. Competition is fierce, and as the web continues to proliferate and level the playing field, competition will only get stronger. It’s no longer enough to host a general discussion forum. Successful communities envision a clear competitive strategy. Although competition is fierce, there are winners on the Internet who consistently gain market share. The winners are those who understand the fundamental drivers of competition: to create sustainable advantages over their competitors, to offer unique services and experiences, and to react opportunistically. They also leverage all facets of their community for maximum value. Join me in 2019 in defining your competitive strategy and becoming a Community of Excellence. - Joel R Joel R is a mystery wrapped inside an enigma. When he's not running his own successful community, he's peppering Invision Community's private Slack channel with his feedback, community management experience and increasingly outrageous demands (everything is true except the last part).
  18. You can certainly blame Bollywood as to why most women love big gestures and dramatic declarations of love. Something about going all out conveys the depth of one's emotions, apparently.

However, women know just how difficult this task might be for some of you and therefore, they are happy with some subtle gestures that reassure them of your love for them.

  20. Who doesn't love a good looking and well-built chest? It is one of the most important aspects when it comes down to building a jaw-dropping physique. But it is also one of the most difficult muscles to develop, as it needs size and symmetry. Developing size and symmetry really comes down to choosing exercises that allow symmetrical growth in your upper, middle and lower chest, while still providing overall mass to your chest. If your chest workout is unbalanced and supports one portion of your chest over the other, over time this will lead to imbalances and take away from the aesthetics of your chest. When doing a chest workout you need to have a solid mind-muscle connection, so that secondary muscles don't take away the tension while performing chest exercises. Coming down to the anatomy to develop the chest © Pixabay The chest is divided into 3 parts: 1) Upper Chest- involves shoulder flexion. 2) Middle Chest- involves horizontal adducting movements that don't involve shoulder flexion or extension 3) Lower Chest- involves shoulder extension Here are the 3 things you need to apply to your regimen to grow your chest over time. 1) Progressive Overload The magical road to growing your muscle is called progressive overload, which means putting more tension on your muscles over time. In simple terms; to lift more weight or perform more volume than before, this is the key. If you're progressing over time, you'll certainly build muscle. It has a greater impact on muscle growth than any other muscle-building secret. This can be achieved by increasing a rep or a set or load. (Volume= sets x load x reps) 2) Full Range Of Motion Research says doing full reps on a given exercise recruits more muscle fibres when compared to half reps or partial reps. You should perform all your chest exercises with a full range of motion. © Pixabay 3) Mind-Muscle Connection Remember Arnold talking about feeling and squeezing your muscles when working out? Well, there is a science behind it. The mind-muscle connection concept is very simple. You have to connect your mind with the muscle you're targeting during your exercise. The mind-muscle connection can be beneficial when doing single joint movements like cable flys. Here's a sample chest workout plan for you, which covers your entire chest: Barbell or dumbbell bench press: 3sets of 6-8 reps Incline Dumbbell press: 3 sets of 8-10 reps Chest Double Bar Dips: 3 sets of 8-12 reps Cable Flys: 3 sets of 12-15 reps Author bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

  21. What do you keep in mind when you're shopping for a new t shirt? Chances are, not a whole lot. In all fairness, when confronted with shelves upon shelves of t shirts that feature a mind-boggling array of fabrics and fits, it doesn't take long for this seemingly straightforward chore to turn into a Herculean task. It's around this time that we start wondering, “How important IS a t shirt, really?” before grabbing the first ones that fit, from the first store we enter, and then simply forgetting about them until we need new ones. As it turns out, buying the right t shirt is actually quite important - after all, there isn't a more dependable and durable article of clothing in your entire wardrobe. Whether worn casually on its own or as part of a more suave layered ensemble, the ideal t shirt feels like a second skin. So, it makes sense that your first point of consideration should be its fabric. And when it comes to looking for quality t shirt fabric that's light and comfortable while at the same time strong and durable, you can't get any better than supima cotton. Haven't heard of supima cotton before? Don't worry, we've done all the necessary research on why supima cotton is the ideal fabric for your t shirts. Read on, and we're sure you'll feel the same way when you get to the end! Supima Cotton Should Be Your Go-To T Shirt Fabric And Here's Why 1. It's Good For Your Wallet (No, Seriously) © Pixabay This isn't a sneaky ploy to get you to switch to supima, there's actually logic and reasoning behind it. It's all got to do with long term thinking - supima cotton is two times as strong as regular cotton, and produces products that are much more durable and resistant to daily wear and tear. So while you might not see the difference on the price tag, the extraordinary resilience of the supima cotton t shirts make them an ideal long term investment. You'll definitely notice the welcome change in your wallet in the long run, because you won't need to splurge on buying new t shirts as often! 2. It Makes For A Tee-riffic Fashion Experience © Pexels Thanks to its extra long staple cotton fibres, supima cotton makes for extra smooth products that feel sumptuously soft on your skin. Regular cotton fibres are about one inch long, whereas supima cotton's fibre averages one and a half, so it's an appreciable difference too! So, as we said earlier, the ideal t shirt needs to feel like your second skin, which is why it makes sense that it's made from a fabric that's soft, comfortable and breathable.They're also much more breathable than those made from regular cotton, so they won't stick to your skin annoyingly in the hot, sultry weather. As a welcome added bonus, while regular cotton products become increasingly rough over time thanks to countless washes, supima cotton products only get softer as time passes. 3. It'll Make Your Wardrobe Pop © Unsplash It's not just about the feel of supima cotton products - it's the look that's superior as well. The extra long fibres of supima cotton are not only more comfortable, they also absorb colour with a deeper, more lasting penetration. The enhanced shade depth elevates your wardrobe instantly, giving you the option of playing around with richer hues that are sure to make any outfits stand out. And while regular cotton products fade over time, you can rest assured that supima products retain their brilliance year after year, wash after wash. 4. It'll Help You Become A Friend Of Nature © Unsplash We've all heard horror stories of the trials and travails of farmers in remote parts of the world (especially India!) who work tirelessly in their fields to provide the really top-notch fabrics for our pleasure, only to be paid a pittance for their efforts. That's not the case with supima cotton, however - the utmost care is taken to ensure that there is minimum impact on the environment. GPS-navigated tractors are used to plant and harvest the cotton, and satellite technology and soil monitors are used to monitor the conditions. The result is the best quality cotton in the world which you can wear with aplomb, secure in the knowledge that the environment was not harmed in the process. 5. It Doesn't Need Any Extra Attention © Pixabay A running theme with the most exclusive items - be it the fabrics in your wardrobe, gadgets in your room, showpieces on your shelves - is that they need painstaking care to maintain them in all their glory. Not in this case - despite its clear and distinct superiority over regular cotton, supima cotton products do not require any special treatment and can be taken care of just like your regular cotton clothes.
  22. One of the first things I do when visiting a site that I know has a community is to try and find it. More often than not, it's hidden away in the footer links or buried in several sub-menus and labelled something relatively obscure like "Fans" or "Support". This is a massive lost opportunity! We all know that social proof is incredibly important when making a purchasing decision. When I buy something on Amazon or book a holiday, the first thing I do is scour the reviews. Are the reviews mostly positive? What did other people think about the product after receiving it? I might see two almost identical products and the reviews, not the price that'll always sway me. It's that urge to herd to keep safe at play. So why bury all that out of the way? Your community should be full of fantastic social proof — hundreds of customers using your product and creating a buzz. Is it a fear of criticism? We all have had bad experiences with clients who are less than rational with feedback, but that's OK. The Harry Potter series of books are beloved by millions, made J.K Rowling a fortune, made a celebrated movie series and opened up several themed attractions which are always busy. Yet, there are a significant number of 1-star reviews on Amazon. Not everyone will get you or your business. You always have the opportunity to reply and explain your side, and you are always in control with moderation tools. Let's face it; if you are to handle negative feedback, it's better to manage it on your community than see it all over social media, Google reviews and review sites like TripAdvisor. Maybe you're a little embarrassed because the community platform is old and doesn't match your branding. If that's the case, then come and talk to us! We specialise in migrating communities from legacy platforms with poor mobile support. We offer brand matching services too. Maybe it's just that you're unsure of what to do with your community. I get that too. It can be hard to know how it fits in with your brand. I'm happy to help there also. Feel free to drop a comment below. Our product has several ways to pull content from the community and feature it on your site. We've helped big brands like LEGO®, Sega, Warner Bros. and more nurture a prosperous community that enhances their business. The bottom line is that a well manage community should be central to your brand and website. Hiding it among the "Privacy Policy" links is a huge missed opportunity. - Matt
  23. STOP THE PRESSES! There is a new fabric that is slowly but surely taking over the world of fashion. Harvested from cotton farms in the United States, supima cotton is an incredibly exciting fabric that actually represents only 1% of all of the cotton that is grown in the world. Simply put, here is a premium wonder fabric that all Indian men absolutely need to know about. Whether you were looking for the best trousers for men, the best round neck t shirts for men, or the best thumbhole t shirts, here is why you should ABSOLUTELY make sure that they are made using supima cotton to get the absolute most bang for your buck! 1. It's Almost Twice Softer Than Regular Cotton © The March Tee As T shirts primarily tend to be a summer outfit, your level of comfort when you put them on should ideally be of paramount importance. In fact, just how comfortable your t-shirt is going to be becomes even more important when you realise that, by and large, you are also going to be using them to layer up your outfits and create different looks. As such, investing in supima cotton, that happens to be twice softer than regular cotton, pretty much acts as a no-brainer. 2. All The While Being Four Times Stronger As Well © The March Tee Now in normal cases, when a fabric tends to be incredibly soft, it normally isn't able to make any tall claims about its strength. Well, the reason why many people consider supima cotton to be the wonder fabric is because you pretty much get the best of both worlds. Despite being a lot softer than regular cotton, it is also FOUR TIMES stronger than it. This also means that you don't have to fret over the durability of supima cotton. As such, if you want to wear the best t shirts for men out there, you should make sure that their fabric composition comprises of supima cotton. 3. The Length Of Its Fibers Is Longer Too © The March Tee Unlike regular cotton fibres, the fibres of supima cotton are actually 1.5x longer. This ends up causing two immense benefits. Firstly, the longer fiber resists pulling, breaking and tearing, making it a better investment on your end. And secondly, the longer fiber makes for a smoother and softer surface, ensuring that your comfortability is greatly enhanced. 4. The Colours Look Bolder © The March Tee Another largely underrated property of supima cotton? It actually absorbs colour better than regular cotton. Which effectively means that the best plain black t shirts for men, the best white t shirts, and more importantly, t shirts of solid colours need to be made of supima cotton if you want their colours to be long-lasting and not fade away after just a few washes.
