Muscular Mens Fashion – 5 Tips From An Expert

JsTIEls Muscular Mens Fashion – 5 Tips

Hello together my name is Jürg, on IG also known as @jsTIEls and today I write about muscular mens fashion. Allow me to introduce myself: I’m 32 years old and discovered my love for fashion a few years ago when I worked as a car salesman and the suit and tie were part of the dress code. I’m not workin as a car salesman anymore, but I still pay a lot of attention (more than ever) to my appearance, especially to my clothes.

How the whole thing started

I started training when I was 17 years old and by that I mean lifting weights. I took this very seriously and went constantly to the gym. Because of that, I have built up more muscle mass than the average. At the moment I weigh 105KG. Of course, I have to be honest here and admit that it is not all pure muscle mass, which means: I am not a bodybuilder and I also have some belly fat. So if someone has this type of body, you will undoubtedly be confronted with some issues. Buying veston or trousers will be very tedious, but it’s especially bad with suits. If you don’t want to lose any muscle mass or want to do without an elegant wardrobe, read my 5 top tips for mens muscular fashion carefully and maybe you can take something with you and put it into practice.

#1- Use elastic fabrics

Elastic fabrics are especially helpful if you are looking for a pair of jeans. Take the jeans in your hand and pull them apart to see how stretchy they are. Try the jeans on and see how they feel on the skin. What you should keep in mind is that this type of fabric will always be a bit tighter than normal jeans. In my opinion it serves the purpose and looks good. Besides, if you already have muscular legs, you can also show them.

Another advantage of the fabric, apart from the fact that it feels great on the skin, is its flexibility: you can easily pick things up without worrying about the risk of your pants ripping.

#2 – Double-breasted wear

Apart from the very stylish aspect of double-breasted waistcoats, more muscular people can benefit from a nice advantage. Because the cut is slightly more “open”, so to speak, this gives you just that bit of extra fabric, since muscular people like me desperately need to have a little more space and still wear an elegant element.

#3 – Vests make the difference

Often people who train a lot have a pronounced V-shape in their physique. This in turn means that you literally have to get up a bit with the numbers, especially with Vestons. Or, as Hugo Jacomet called it, “Going to another level”: That’s why you have to have the courage to wear a vest! – I love my vests. Here again – apart from the stylish aspect – the vest benefits muscular people because it emphasizes the build of the body. So if you have well-developed shoulders, the vest is an absolute must-have!

#4 – MTM or Bespoke

The obvious way if it comes to mens muscular fashion: If you don’t find anything suitable in the shop, you just get something made to measure (called MTM – made to measure). This is great, of course, but you’ll have to dig a little deeper into your pocket. If it doesn’t matter, it’s probably the best choice, especially when it comes to suits.

If you choose “bespoke”, it’s a bit more expensive, but you will have an absolutely unique piece. What I have to add here, is the following: if you are a bodybuilder or if your appearance is similar, it will always be visible – what ever you’re wearing.

#5 – Trade-off

Imagine you’re walking into a store and you see a jacket and you think, “I gotta have it!” You try on the piece and notice that it’s a little too tight for you, so that you can just raise your arm high enough to shake someone’s hand. The ‘trade-off’ is to buy the thing anyway and make a small compromise.

6 Reasons For Swiss Whisky

The officially documented history of whisky begins in the 15th century in Scotland, although experts still argue today as to whether whisky is a Scottish or Irish invention. The Langatun distillery, which produces excellent Swiss whisky, proves that whisky does not always have to come from the north.

The origin of the Langatun Distillery

In 1857 Jakob Baumberger founded a distillery on his father’s farm, and in 1860 he took over a small brewery in Langenthal (Celtic: “Lanagtun”), which he subsequently developed into a flourishing business alongside the distillery.

Langatun still produces the finest and high quality Swiss whisky today.

Facts worth knowing about the production

Whisky has been made from barley and water for over 500 years.

At Langatun, barley from the best locations in Europe is germinated with water. The germinated barley, to be called “malt”, is dried and – for whisky with a smoky taste – additionally smoked.

In the brewery, the ground malt is mixed with warm water, “Gemaischt”. The resulting wort is then fermented with selected yeast to the so-called “whisky-beer”. After the “Pot-Still” process, the whisky beer is heated in the copper bubble, followed by a special process that slowly and carefully extracts the precious alcohol. This gives the Langatun Whisky its incomparable soft, tender and malt accentuated character.

6 reasons for a Swiss Whisky

If we Swiss travel around the world, we are addressed to our delicious chocolate, cheese, mountains or watches. Maybe in the future also Swiss Whisky? We provide a few reasons for this.

1. Barrels of Swiss oak

Part of the Langatun whisky is stored in Swiss barrels, in Central Switzerland these barriques are made from Swiss oak and sold to Swiss winegrowers. And the reactions of wine connoisseurs are excellent: Swiss oak does not have to hide from either American or French oak.

2. Fresh water from its own source

The fresh water comes from our own spring, which rises in the untouched woods above the distillery.

3. Tradition and history

As we have already experienced, Swiss whisky has more tradition and history than we might have thought.

4. A great insider tip

We already know and appreciate the Balvenies, Lagavulin or Talisker – how about a different present for Father’s Day, Birthday or under the Christmas tree?

5. Swissness

A little ‘Swissness’ definitely never hurts. From an ecological point of view we try to buy products from Switzerland whenever possible. This supports local farmers and producers and saves a large part of the transport.

6. Swiss whisky tastes really delicious!

The Langatun whisky can be seen: smoky, slightly sweet, elegant, sweet, with notes of honey, vanilla, wood or malt – there is something for every taste. The best thing is always to try and make your own opinion.

English Fashion – How To Get Dressed Right

What do we associate with the term ‘English fashion’? Probably most likely the elegant, stylish gentleman with a tweed jacket, cap and hunting rifle over the shoulder. Today we show you how to get dressed right and that it also works outside of Britain.

It is not without reason that London has developed over the years into one of the most important fashion and style cities in the world: when it comes to styles and trend awareness, the British are very popular.

English Fashion – How to Get Dressed Right

Rather cool temperatures and many rainy days dominate the climate in England; therefore, thick fabrics and warm materials are more likely to be found in fashion. Accessories such as umbrellas, hats, gloves or scarves are the perfect match with such an outfit.

1. Cord trousers

Cord is a warm and hard-wearing fabric, which, similar to jeans, used to be standard equipment for workers. In the 50s the image change followed and from then on was carried by architects and intellectuals.

2. Harris Tweed Jacket

Harris Tweed’ is a woven form of tweed and is still made by hand on the loom on the Scottish island of Harris. Only after repeated testing by experts does the fabric receive the special quality mark. Typical for tweed are the different, harmonious colour inlays.
