Fall Fab 4 {for the dudes}

Happy Friday Everyone! Just to let you know, I am a HUGE fan of fashion, fall and going back to school (school is cool kids).  So when I met Jeremy Glik, who by the way has pretty awesome style for a dude, I had to get him to do a guest blog.

So here goes….

Cyan Neff Downtown Backpack:

This rad new backpack is Neff’s new addition to their ever-growing accessory line that just keeps on getting better. The color shows an outgoing style that won’t take away from what you’re wearing, it will just add to it.

Fox Racing Baseline Slim Straight Jean:

I’ve been wearing Fox denim since I was little. Their quality has only gotten better with this new addition to their jean line. And the wash fits today’s style perfectly.

Quiksilver Belmont Shoe in Tan:

Quiksilver’s shoes have come out ahead and on top. Especially with this new shoe that shows the fast fashion in men’s shoes. This tan and classy look is exactly what everybody is wearing.

Neff Warriors Tee:

The new tee line by Neff is a cool redesign from their old tees. They have really gone for a more basic tee look and this tee in particular shows that off perfectly.

Another Fathers Day is just around the corner, and let’s face it, you don’t want to disappoint good ol’ dad again with another pair of boring socks, a cheesy necktie, or a sappy card. No way! This year is the year!

Your pulling out all the stops, and you’re ready to surprise and delight him with a gift that conveys how much you appreciate all those years he diligently watched over you and your not-so “awesome” decisions.

Want to show dad how awesome he really is?  No matter what kind of style he had, here are some amazing Father’s Day gift ideas to help jump-start you in your mission for the perfect gift for Dad.

Hybrid Shorts: You heard right. Whether he is on land or in the water with the fam., a pair of hybrid boardshorts is just the right thing to keep his simplistic style in check. No muss or fuss necessary. Hybrid shorts are made of the same material as regular boardshorts and provide the same function, but they look like a regular short. There is no need to change when going from water to land; all he needs to do is throw on a comfy tee and off you all go!

Printed Tees: Dads are hip and cool. They wear t-shirts from brands that represent their hobbies and interests. If dad is a fan of moto sports then a tee from Fox Racing will be right up his alley. If he is a casual fellow then brands like Hurley, 1897, and Billabong have casual prints or basic solid colors just for him.

Shorts: Keep it simple, just like your dad. It’s hot out, and I am sure he would appreciate an updated style on a classic pair of shorts to wear while out golfing with the guys. My suggestion would be a pair of twill flat front shorts from 1897 denim.

Boardshorts: Dad is an active man. He likes being outdoors doing manly stuff and is a sucker for water related activities. That is awesome! Update his (maybe) outdated boardshorts! A little color and graphic flare never hurt, especially if amazing comfort and top-notch functionality is at play.

Flip-Flops: No harm, no foul when flip-flops are involved. A sure way to a dad’s heart is though food, chores (done right) and something comfortable. I would aim my sights at his feet. Make them happy with a pair of comfy flip-flops, like the Beer Cozy from Sanuk. They even have camo for the dads who like to hunt.

Every dad is special. So show him how much you care with a great gift for Fathers Day! Be sure to look for any of these great gift ideas for dad online at gliks.com or visit a Glik’s store location nearest to you!

Man Must-Have {Hybrid Shorts}

Okay guys, it’s safe to say that summer is finally here and every man is in need of a quality pair of boardshorts, NOT a pair of cutoffs made from jeans that won’t survive another winter. Besides, “jorts” (jean shorts) on men are a HUGE fashion DON’T rule that continues to be broken by males everywhere. Whether you’re at the pool, at the lake, in a boat on the river, or you’re blessed to be beachside, boardshorts are a must-have for men!

There is only one downside to the boardshort, and that is eventually you have to go from waterside to the streets or out to eat, etc. This meant that you will have to pack a change of bottoms. Granted, some guys can pull of the boardshorts on the street “look,” but there are still a majority of men who can’t. This is where the hybrid short comes in. Thanks to this ah-mazing new concept, men all-over do not have to change from bathing suit to street wear anymore.

Hybrid shorts are exactly what their name claims: a short that can be worn both in and out of the water. They are made of fast drying material and feature pockets that are secure in the water, yet look normal out of the water. When I first saw the Hybrid Freak from O’Neill, at first glance I would have not categorized them as a boardshort.

Some look exactly like a normal pair of shorts sporting an outward button fly with interior draw cord, hand side pockets, and back flap stow pockets.

Cool Feature: the side hand pockets can be zipped up while you’re in the water and zipped open once you’re ready to hit the town.

Wall Street Front Tie Closure

The Wall Street Hybrid short from O’Neill is similar to that of a normal boardshort “look” featuring a tie closure, side Velcro cargo pocket, and no back pockets.

Another perk of the hybrid shorts is that they are available in patterns and colors that are tyoically reserved for casual shorts verses the loud colors and graphics normally seen in boardshorts. Hybrid shorts are usually available in conservative patterns such as plaids, stripes and all-over solid colors.

Overall, I feel that the hybrid boardshort is a summer essential for any guy and a must-have for this 2012 summer season. What’s your opinion on hybrid shorts? Would you wear them? You can visit us online at gliks.com to see these and other available hybrid boardshorts styles.
