Get Noticed at the Club
If you want to be noticed while out at a club, it’s best to remember a few things. While no one wants to consider themselves shallow, first impressions do count, so it’s important that you dress to impress. Second, being a gentleman never goes out of style. Finally, while it’s acceptable to be interested, it is never attractive to appear desperate.

LeBron James introduces the all-new Nike LEBRON 12 sneakers
Lebron James has had a very eventful summer as he decided to right a serious wrong by returning home to Cleveland to play with the Cavaliers. The season is coming up soon, and Lebron is capping off the summer by introducing his new Nike LEBRON 12 sneakers.
You can see from the photos above that they’re going with a bold and colorful design. Miami Dolphins fans will love the color choices! With bold colors dominating the sneaker and athletic gear markets, this will probably go over very well.
The LEBRON 12 is designed to enhance James’s explosiveness while combining three key benefits: superior cushioning, harnessed support and natural flexibility. It’s hard not to be impressed with the advances in sneaker technology, and Nike has been leading the way for years.
So if you’re looking for a bold, new look for the fall, you might want to check these out. Just don’t wear them with your LeBron/Cavs gear — unless, of course, you like colors that clash!
Great Shirts from Alara
I’ve been upgrading my dress shirts lately, so I was happy to have the opportunity to try out two new shirts from AlaraShirt.com. I found two slim-fit shirts that looked great on the website – the Lavender grid slim fit shirt and the Navy – White pencil stripe slim fit shirt. The Lavender shirt has the grid pattern that’s been popular lately and the second shirt had a classic blue and white thin stripe look.
When I opened the package I was impressed right away with the colors, which were very vibrant, and the overall look of the shirts that reflected the high-end quality of the items. I’ve been moving towards more fitted shirts for years, and both shirts were very well constructed and fit perfectly. Of course, that means I’ll have to stick with the healthy eating habits and working routine I’ve been I’ve been trying, as these slim-fit styles are not forgiving!
Both shirts are made with two-ply Egyptian cotton with meticulous craftsmanship, including 18 fine stitches per inch ensuring durability, adjustable mittered barrel cuffs, ultra flexible removable collar stays, side gussets for style and strength and Alara’s exclusive unbreakable mother of pearl blend buttons. With each item, you also get Alara’s
15-day, no hassle free return policy.
The fitted shirts look fantastic with jeans or casual pants and of course under a blazer as well. You’ll find a wide variety of styles from trendier patterns to more classic looks.
If the slim-fit look isn’t for you and you prefer roomier shirts, those options are available as well with Alara. Keep that in mind, as well, if you’re shopping for anyone else. It also helps to have some variety in your closet. If you’re wearing an undershirt, you might want to choose some standard-cut shirts for work.
Both shirts we tried are competitively priced as are all the items on this website. Bullz-Eye readers will get an additional 10% off the sale prices listed on the site by using coupon code “alara10” at checkout.
Along with dress shorts, you can also check out AlaraShirt.com for quality sports shirts and new items have been added for Spring & Summer. With Father’s Day around the corner you can find some great gift ideas as well.
