  • Tee Off with the Season's Hottest Golf Hats.

    Focus, practice, and your lucky golf hat.

     

    sunset-787826_640

    Golf is a magical game indeed. You round up a group of your friends, together meet out at a place verdant and meticulously manicured, and proceed to spend the rest of the day launching a little white ball into the blue vastness of a (hopefully) sunny sky. Now that the weather is warm and inviting, there is little excuse to stay away from your local country club. But fair warning before you hit the fairway, most courses require that you wear appropriate clothes, and the sport of golf has its own honored culture of cool. As a matter of decorum and practicality, no golf outfit is complete without a stylish headpiece to top it all off.

     

    Let’s take a look at some golf-sheik that’s trending:

    Mesh Golf Cap or Visor

    One of the most common hats to see out on the course is unsurprisingly a practical American classic. A cap is durable, keeps your eyes well shaded for your stroke, and comes in a variety of fashionable colors. Sometimes called  “trucker hats”, our golf caps are made of mesh in the back that allows your sweat to evaporate and keep you cool. Or, if you want to take a minimalist approach to fashion, a visor lets you catch every whiff of gentle summer breeze.

    Microfiber Hats

    Golf is more fun when you can do it in comfort, and our selection of golf hats can help you achieve a high level of that comfort. Microfiber is a wonderful synthetic material designed to absorb and dissipate sweat from off of the wearer’s skin. What could be better for a sweltering 18 wholes than a dry forehead? Ok, maybe a cold six-pack, but we can only help with the sweat part. There are a variety of different  hats made from this material, so you can stay cool without sacrificing your particular style.

    Bucket Hats

    Also called a 'fisherman's hat', these rugged and stylish pieces are usually made from heavier material such as cotton to provide increased protection from the elements. The bucket's 360 degrees of shade will help you escape the scorch of 18 holes, and are great for times you want to play through a random summer shower.

    UV block / Neck flap Hats

    If you are a fair skinned individual, it really pays to be completely protected from the sun's harmful UV rays. We have a selection of hats specifically designed to keep the sunburn to a minimum, while allowing you to enjoy your golf game in style and safety. These are the ultimate in practical protection from the heat!

     

    golf-503142_640

     

    To play golf is to take time for yourself, to put aside all your cares and worries and instead spend the day savoring the sweetness of grass, sky and sun. So grab a cold beer and press the golf cart pedal down- but make sure to hold on to your hat as you fly from green to green!

  • A Simple Guide to Wedding Fashion

    Wedding Bells are Ringing.

    wedding-443600_640

    Who doesn’t love a good wedding? The food, the dancing, the romance in the air- weddings are not only a profound declaration of love and loyalty, but also fantastic venues for you to sport your best formal wear. No fashionable nuptial ceremony can be complete without cake, a few tears, and of course, charming wedding hats! Whether you are a groomsman, a bridesmaid, or just hanging out in the back and trying to avoid that timeless question: “so when are YOU going to get married?”, it pays to know which accessories are trending this wedding season.

    Let’s take a look at what’s trending in wedding fashion:

    IMG_1146

    Fascinator

    Don’t be put off by the futuristic name, as these hats are a time-honored classic. Sometimes called a ‘cocktail hat’, fascinators are typically worn at fancy events like the Kentucky Derby. The fascinator is the perfect formal accessory for ladies attending a wedding, and there is a dizzying selection to choose from. Because of the wide variety of shapes, colors and arrangements, fascinators can really illuminate one’s personal style with originality and flair.

    lady-650400_640

    Fashion Sinamay Hats

    These petit women’s hats originally hail from the Far East, where ladies used traditional weaving methods to transform the strong fibers of the abaca plant into an elegant fashion accessory. Now that the style has reached the states, these hats are popularly worn in church, at high-status affairs, and are often seen in the pews at eloquent wedding ceremonies.

    Fedoras

    We all want to be at our most dashing at a wedding, and there is no better way for men to draw attention than with that classic fedora- symbolizing cool characters from prohibition gangsters to Indiana Jones himself. Make sure to tip your brim towards the happy couple!

    _1312562906_11          _1271420052_18

    Bowler Hats

    Sheik, elegant, and properly English, the bowler hat is the perfect thing to finish off your gentlemanly wedding attire. For many, this debonair headpiece is a subtle nod to class and dignity. For others, there are always feathers to stick in the band for a little added flair and pizzazz.

    IMG_1420

    Trilby Hats

    The trilby is a narrow brimmed hat similar to the fedora, also popularized by the English (they seem to have this hat thing down to a science). With a sort of rough-around-the-edges type of hipness, these hats capture a retro look that will fit right in at any classy wedding party.

    IMG_1426

    Pork Pie Hats

    Some things never really go out of style- flat-crowned pork pie hats are as fresh and delicious as their name implies. These classically sheik headpieces will give you that old-school cool look that suits any nuptial celebration.

    wedding-688924_640

    There is nothing that will gather people together quite as well as the time-honored wedding ceremony. It is a thing as traditional as it is modern, evolving along with our changing society, and yet many of its staples remain the same- the cake, the dancing, the vows, and the gracefully elegant formal wear. Hope you catch that bouquet!

  • Top Ten 2014 Winter Hats and Trends

    Winter is here, are you ready.

    Fashion can be one of the most polarizing topics among people all over the world. Who truly decides what becomes the next trendy winter hats? Is it celebrities? Could it be fashion designers? Do you just follow what the advertisers tell you? If you are just a regular Joe like myself, wading through the noise to get a simple yet striking style, can be a monumental undertaking. I have scoured the internet to put together a simple layman's guide for busy men and women so you can stay ahead of the fashion trends that matter to you.

     

    winter hats

    Number One: Slouchy Beanie

    One of the best winter hats you can wear is a beanie and there is a style of beanie out there that has been around for a very long time but is still somehow relatively unknown. That is the slouchy beanie. A slouchy beanie is is not worn like a traditional beanie but has more space in the crown and is also worn more towards the back of your head. This beanie is great to wear in more temperate climates like California where "cold", really isn't that cold. This is a great new take on the traditional beanie. Check out some of the great ways to wear this versatile beanie below.

    number 2Number 2: The Infinity Scarf

    The "infinity scarf" also known as a snood scarf is a style that I only recently became aware of. The best way to describe this style is that it is a super long scarf that is wrapped around your neck repeatedly. It has a bunched up but stylish look that has been worn by both men and women, and stars and starlets. If you are looking to turn heads while staying warm this winter, then this is the scarf for you. It can be worn with a wide variety of outfits and can be found in several different styles. Take a look here at some awesome infinity scarves available.

    Number 3: Flip Top Gloves

    14708668_201310011356 16463258 convertiblegloves

    Sometimes you want your fingers protected and other times you want to let those fingers roam. That is the beauty of flip top gloves. These versatile gloves can be worn as mittens but can also be converted into fingerless gloves. Like most men, I really hate making simple decisions. While they won't help me decide what food to eat for dinner, or what to do on a Saturday night, they can help be decide between gloves and mittens. It truly is the best of both hand accessory worlds.

    Number 4: Santa Hats

    The Santa hat. One of the most popular winter hats out there. One of the most iconic hats worn in December since the birth of Christ(Slight embellishment) is still as popular as ever. You can't walk a block without seeing somebody sporting one of these fun hats. They are not just fun for kids. Casually wearing Santa hats has actually been widely accepted for adults both at work and at play.

    Number 5: The Ugly Sweater

    ugly-christmas-sweaters2

    Ahhh, the ugly sweater, one of my most favorite things about the holiday season. Gone are the days of flipping through the racks at the Goodwill to find the most perfect ugly sweater. Winter hats have a new best friend, the ugly sweater. The ugly sweaters of today are actually designed to be ugly, on purpose. I don't know if they are hipster, or fashionable or what have you, I just love them. You better shop for one soon before they only have the pretty ones left.

    Number 6: Trooper and Trapper Hats

    The next one on the list is the trooper and trapper hat. This is my personal favorite on this list. If you have not ever worn a trooper hat it is easily the most comfortable winter hats in existence today. With the fur lining and the long ear flaps, it is an integral part of the winter wardrobe. Not many outdoor excursions should take place without this trusted cranial companion.

    Number 7: Animal Beanie Hats

    Animal beanie hats is a style that really picked up steam last year and continues to be a fun way to stay warm and have fun for both kids and adults alike. That trend looks like it will continue, as you can even find these types of hats on the shelf of your local 7 Eleven stores. When you see it at 7 Eleven you know it has hit the mainstream. These hats also come with mitten paws attached for added warmth and whimsy. Most of the MVP's of the animal kingdom can be found including pandas, monkeys, dogs, tigers, and even frogs.

    Number 8: Ski Mask

    Ski and snow season is here. Now skiing and snowboarding is nothing new, and people have been hitting the slopes for decades now, but the gear has changed. Enter the neoprene ski mask. There are hundreds of cool designs out there for every person and every personality. Whether you are a winter bad boy and skulls are your thing you can find that. If you are more on the nerdy side you will find Transformers, and Hannibal designs. For the hipster (most might never admit it) you can find mustache designed face masks all across god's green internet.

    Number 9: Corduroy Everything

    Corduroy is making a comeback (I never thought I would ever write that). Believe I was just as surprised as you, in finding out. Alas, the Prince of texture, the sultan of swag, and the king of casual is making it's triumphant return to the world of fashion. Corduroy hats, pants, bags, purses, children's clothes, high fashion apparel, and so many other bits of fashion are creeping back in style. Corduroy has always been the "Little Engine that Could" but it not only can it is, and it can be found all throughout popular fashion today.

    Number 10: The Watch is Back in Style

    Many people have a love, hate relationship with a watch. Believe me, for the first 24 years of my life, the last thing I would ever be asking for this Christmas would be a watch. Flash forward to today, the watch has become an integral part of my daily fashion repertoire. It seems like I am not only in my new found appreciation for the watch. Both men and women are wearing watches more and more, and most are doing for for the fashion benefits and not to become more punctual.

  • Over 50 Years of Deals: History of Black Friday

    Door busting, money saving mayhem.

    shopping-makes-me-tired-and-grumpy

    Black Friday: History of the Mayhem

    Black Friday has fallen on the day after Thanksgiving now for over 50 years. In the world of retail this is the Holy Grail of shopping days. The term "Black Friday" was coined in the 1960's to mark the kickoff of the Christmas shopping season. It is referred to as "Black Friday" now because it was the moment when retailers moved from being in the "red" (operating at a loss), to the "black" (starting to make a profit). The term actually originated in Philadelphia where the term was used to describe the heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic on the day after Thanksgiving. For millions of us, Black Friday is a day where you can get some serious holiday shopping done, at some serious discounts. Even before the 1960's, since 1924 and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the day after Thanksgiving has been known as the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. Every year it seems that retailers have been opening earlier and earlier to help with the massive crowds these promotions draw. Many retailers this year are even opening early Thanksgiving evening. Excitement for these deep discounts reaches a fever pitch at times and violence has actually occurred.

    o-BLACK-FRIDAY-HELL-570

    Deadly Deals

    Huge groups of ravenous deal hunters don't always play nice. Throughout the years a lot of violence and even deaths have occurred as a result of these massive discounts. In 2011 a woman pepper sprayed a crowd at a Walmart while trying to get a Nintendo Wii for 60% off. In 2012, again at a Walmart, two people were shot after there was an altercation over a parking space. Not to mention in 2008 when a man was trampled to death just trying to do his job. There is definitely a negative connotation to the term "Black Friday" for a great deal of people.

    BLACK-FRIDAYz

    Black Friday Deals and Urgency

    The number one takeaway from Black Friday and the associated advertising is the term "urgency". As upsetting as it is to admit, Black Friday and commercialism has been ingrained in our shopping culture. The hype around "Black Friday" is ridiculous, limited quantity deals, door busters, and other sales sometimes up to 80% off are carefully crafted to show a sense of urgency. Some techniques used this include:

    • Advertising crazy low prices on select items, some even selling at a loss to the retailer.
    • Offering special deals during limited hours of the day.
    • Limiting the quantity of items available throughout the day.

    cyber-monday-gallery-hed-2012

    The idea behind this is that most shoppers will buy full priced merchandise along with the highly discounted stuff. The internet has truly taken Black Friday to a whole new level allowing to help customer better plan out their shopping day.

    bfriday.jpg

    The Consequences of Black Friday

    Deep discounts, holiday cheer, and hassle-free shopping. That's what Black Friday is all about right? Not exactly, there is a cost for all of this. Is this consumer excess and addiction to consumer goods healthy? As humans, does this primal behavior that comes out in shoppers including, shoving, rude comments, and overall indecency makes us look good? Many people believe that this costumer culture is making us forget about what is really important during the holiday season. If you have never visited a retail store after Black Friday it is a sight to behold. The carnage left in its wake can be hellish at times.

    Internet Joins the Party

    The internet was not happy to sit by and let retail stores have all the fun. The term Cyber Monday entered our vocabulary around the year 2005. However, in this short time it has seen some of the largest volume of online sales ever. The day was officially named by the N.R.F (National Retail Federation). This additional sales day was added due to the fact that researchers found that online sales for that day spiked about 75% that day, so they figured they might as well take advantage of that fact. In fact the first year it was nationally mentioned, online sales rose over 25% to around $490 million. It rose every year, now predicted to be over 1 billion. Competition for online retailers on this day is fierce and discounts can be found almost anywhere. Here are some tips to score the best possible deals.

    1. Research- knowing what is out there can help you maximize your savings.
    2. Knowing time constraints-when a sale starts and ends so you don't miss time sensitive deals.
    3. You should create online accounts for the stores you are looking to buy from before actually shopping on Cyber Monday.
    4. Make breakfast in bed, leave your pajamas on all day and shop from the comfort of your own home with no doors to bust, no craziness, just low prices.

  • Ski Mask, Snow Gear, and the Best Mountains to Ride

    Snow season is here, grab your gear, grab a lift ticket and let's go.

    lessons-header09

    2014-2015 Snow Season is Here

    The most glorious part of the year is now finally upon us...ski and snowboarding season. There is only so much time to take advantage of that majestic white powdery goodness. We are putting together this guide to help you find the best gear, the best slopes, and easy places to purchase lift tickets. I know from personal experience that skiing and snowboarding can be a pretty expensive hobby, so saving money while tearing up powder is a great added bonus.

    The Gear

       ga_artistboards_04 51DRCYVG8xL._SY300_ ski gloves ski mask 2014_skis_3_116560

    Ski and Snow Essentials

    Nothing beats the feeling of brand new gear for a brand new season. Brand new gear actually isn't that expensive as long as you know where to shop. The first ingredient of a killer winter wardrobe is a ski face mask.

    Essential #1: Ski/Face Mask

    When it comes to choosing the perfect face mask, there are three basic options that you will come across:

    balaclava face mask

    Balaclava Ski Mask: These masks cover your entire head and usually are available in either three-hole or one-hole designs based on your personal preferences.

    sf003fm-1

    Full Face Neoprene Mask: The second option you have available to you is a full face neoprene mask. These do not cover your entire head like a traditional ski mask or balaclava. The material might look thin but these face masks pack a warm punch.

     

    half face mask

    Half Face Ski Mask: The last option you have is the half face mask. These masks only cover up the lower half of your face up to your nose. Wearing this in conjunction with a great pair of goggles is my personal preference.

    Each type of face mask has it's own pros and cons based on the individual and based on personal tastes. There are hundreds of great styles and designs out there, you should have no problem finding the perfect accessory.

    ski gloves

    Winter Essential #2: Ski Gloves

    It doesn't take a scientist to figure out that snow is cold, really cold, everyone knows that. However, what many people are not aware of is that much on your body's warmth escapes via your head, as well as you appendages like hands and feet. A great pair of ski gloves not only looks great but can keep your body heat up. The gloves also protect you from physical contact with the ice and snow which can actually cause burns if you are not careful. For more casual winter excursions off the slopes you will find flip top gloves which can change from mittens to fingerless gloves and back again.

    _1317904086_7

    Winter Essential #3: Beanie/Trooper Hat

        The last winter essential is a beanie or trooper hat. Most people know what a beanie is, it is probably the second most popular hat type aside from a baseball cap. What some are unaware of, is a little hat called a trooper hat. In my opinion a trooper hat is one of the most comfortable hats I have ever worn. It is basically a super comfortable beanie that has ear flaps as well as soft fur lining. Another variation of this hat I also love is a trapper hat. This hat combines the versatility of a ball cap with the comfort of a beanie or ear muffs.

There are so many runs to choose from and while I have not had the opportunity to experience all that Utah snow season has to offer, it remains one of the premier winter destinations.
