Springtime! What's the styles on deck?

Hey! It's me with a quick check-in on what's goin' down in stylin' on 'em this spring!

Got some links, prepare to click and save!!

First Link: jackthreads.com going ham!

Jackthreads.com is a crazy website that carries lots of mens wear, accessories, shoes, you name it! Lots of cool styles you don't see anywhere, for low prices. I'm all about shopping on the cheap (I have the Express Next card, those rewards add up quick!) and looking through the site, I see lots of things I need to purchase as an excuse to donate the things I have that I can't and/or barely wear. If you sign up, you get $5 credit. Sign up friends, you get $10 credit when they make their first order. The cycle of awesome continues!

Another One: karmaloop!

Boston-based, flavor enhancing is their game! Karmaloop has guys and girls covered, many labels to choose from, and once again NOT PRICEY!! They even post coupon codes on the site from time to time, check out the Karmaloop Rep Team on Twitter (@KarmaloopKRP) if saving money is your thing. I'm not a rep, but from the looks of the website it's not a hard task. Check 'em out, you'll like it!

Some Quick Links for the Random Shopper:

http://dynamitetime.com/  - If you're a watch fiend like me, finding inexpensive watches by Invicta is always a godsend! Need one for the wifey? They got lady watches also. Shipping is pretty standard, my watch came in 8 business days, would be awesome if they had shipping details on the site but so far so good.

http://www.fragrancenet.com/ - All types of sundries, even some hard to find fragrances. I find colognes that retail around $60-$80 are on the low side on this site, you get an automatic 15% off if you sign up for the newsletter. They have site-wide sales, free shipping on orders $70+, and they ship quite quickly. Quick tip: some colognes show up less expensive in gift sets. Weird, I know. A 2.4oz John Varvatos spray goes for $60, the gift set is the same size spray with after-shave and shower gel for $49! Crazy, right?

http://www.hats.com/ - I'm an old-school Kangol aficionado, namely the Furgora line of caps (the faux fur pimp-lookin' caps). I had a black Furgora since high school, it's looking rough these days so I set out to find a worthy replacement. Hats.com has an impressive line up of hats, also like fragrancenet.com you can sign up for 15% off your order up front. 

You know me, I find the deals and pass them along. I'll keep an eye out, and post in my next blog, perhaps!

Some insight on Style!

Yup, me again.. Shopping after the holidays tends to leave most of us broke (definitely feeling it), but some sales are just hard to pass on. depending on your area, tastes, eyesight, I'm gonna list a few of my usual spots I hit up for added prettiness!

Collage: The Shift Supreme Initiative!

  As we all know, I tend to go all out with ordering and spreading the word on Heyday Footwear.. If they were not awesome, that would be a different story. Since they are, and they have an ad for the Shift Supreme being versatile  up to 32 different combinations, I felt I should try to stretch that number.

WHAT IS THE SHIFT SUPREME?: Simple, the signature Shift RS sneaker with 4 pairs of laces (black, red, yellow, white) and 2 pairs of reversible tongues (red/yellow, black/white). You can switch the tongue/lace combination as you see fit, and how your outfit of the day might compliment the style. I went a step further by using a multitude of different lace colors with random tongue combos, and even some unique lacing styles as well. My goal was just to see what degree we can further customize on these shoes, and I have many more styles in mind!

Here's what I've compiled so far, possibly a YouTube clip to follow!
























Check out http://www.heydayfootwear.com/shoes/shift-supreme/ and try your own mix!! It's not hype, I actually was in public with two shades of pink laces! ;-)

Random Rants about way too many things!

Hey!

Lots of things tend to get to us emotionally, throw us off our game, and just plain piss us off!

Here's a quick list of my main peeves, and the people who deserve to drown in dead pig puree..


  1. Vegans, or anyone who is way too vigilant about their eating habits. Guess what? Dietary choices are kinda like religion: we are free to choose which way we want to live our lives, and you have no right ramming your beliefs down my throat. It's good you have a natural way of keeping your body functioning properly, but that doesn't mean you need to either start a cult based on sprouts, or look down on me because I'm eating Prime Rib.. 
  2. Gluten-free jack-offs! Unless you have good authority on the fact that you can't actually digest wheat protein, eat the fucking bowl of Wheat Thins and shut up! I'll stop eating wheat bread and drinking Hefeweizen beer (unfiltered wheat brew) once a doctor tells me it's causing damage to my intestines. I don't follow the "crowd" because it seems like the cool thing to do, it's not and you're not. 
  3. iPhone snobs. Yes, it's a neat contraption and no, I'm not "mad" because I can't afford one. It's the same price as any phone, and yet I choose not to be a sheep. Besides, Steve Wozniak (who helped Mr. Jobs build Apple) thinks Android devices are better for most of the things iPhones are supposed to be so awesome at. By the way, notification pop-ups and having that bar you can swipe down from the top, that's an Android function. Who's copying who? Siri? Google had voice commands and search since day 1. Maybe the 6th phone, dubbed "iPhone 5", will actually be an updated device, not just a slight refresh that still can't multi-task..
  4. The corn lobby and this whole "It's the same as sugar" bullshit they spew.. Really? Last I checked, high fructose corn syrup is man-made processed poison. Nothing you can say can change my mind, the studies that prove it, and the many fat asses that shovel that shit into their faces every chance they get, and wonder why they have metabolic issues (diabetes, high blood pressure, low thyroid output, did I mention being FAT?)
  5. Porn.. Not really a rant, just drew a blank. Besides, this is the internet, I said "Porn", you didn't pay me for that quip, so there you go. Free internet porn. You're welcome..
  6. Why is it that at any gathering or public area, if a fat guy or an out of shape guy has his shirt off, it's just because it's hot outside. If I did it, I'm "showing off", "compensating", "full of myself".. Sorry, my bad, I should just stop working out and get fat and bloated like the rest of you. And just because my shirt fits me snug in a few key areas does not mean I purposely purchased a shirt too small. That is just dumb, my wife-to-be knows I'm not in any way "compensating", and maybe you should try getting in shape before judging someone who takes care of themselves and happens to like the cosmetic effect working out has bestowed upon him. I'm sexy and I know it, bitch!
Well, I think I'm good for now. It's always a good idea to vent every so often, just let all that undue stress out, relax, and look for a little fun. Look more at the comical aspect of this post, thin about how things that piss you off can be hilarious, and life is better for that!

Now, put down the fuckin' iPhone and share some of that free porn we talked about!! ;-)

The songs that push us through, and the site to find them!

Howdy!!

It's been too long, and I'm working on a couple ideas these days. One of the <a href="http://bestworkoutsongs.ws">Best Workout Songs</a>, and it's quite feature-rich considering it's not at 100%, more like 98%. The features include athlete bios, full iTunes library, informative blogs and product reviews. The site is primarily a way to find the perfect songs to train to while learning of what music is actually doing on an emotional level, also   you can purchase all of the music with the iTunes connection, and you can comment on posts if you're signed in to Facebook.. More features coming, if I were writing it I'd tell you about it

My athlete profile is up, check it out I'm not usually half-naked on the web!

Style recognize Style!!

Hey!

Been awhile, getting in shape, being a good dad, working and overworking.. You know, LIFE!

But I'm back with some fashion news for those of us who remain average on the appearance front.

Bottom left to right: purple Saints Row3 Super Shifts, Super Rox,
Super Smooth, Black Python Super Shift, white Super Shift, black Shift RS, metallic blue Super Shift,
metallic red Super Shift, grey patent Super Shift

Shoes: Of course I'm still rocking the Framingham Ma. based hotness called Heyday Footwear. They have new designs coming, awesome pricing, and the best customer service I've seen in any company. The core designs are the Shift, Super Shift, Super Deb, Super Smooth (boot), and the new Super Rox biker-styled boot. The new styles are the Super Shift Max, comes with the lace cover and new Super Strap. Next is a reboot of the Ballistic from last spring, the Super Shift Core. It's a full ballistic nylon mesh sneaker with patent leather trim and reversible Super Strap.

Get yours at --> https://www.heydayfootwear.com/shoes/  while all the last season kicks are marked down to move so the new styles can move in. I'm in possession of quite a few pairs, very comfortable and stylish. I'm used to being different in my style, and Heyday is aan awesome compliment to my look. If you hit them up, use my promo code "TeamHD" no quotations, that'll save you some extra $$, and shipping is fast and free over $50 in purchases!

Clothes: I'm not very big on labels, but I would like to own a Kenneth Cole or Calvin Klein tailored suit for nights out. I do tend to shop more for my everyday style at Express. The graphic tees are pretty cool, fit well even for my arms, and I'm slowly becoming a fan of their jeans. I'm not big on slim cut, but they are soft and move well for how they fit. I know some stores have the classic fit (not too snug, more room than the slim cut), and I've seen regular fit around also. I mostly buy their 1MX shirts in fitted for work, their ties and the Agent cut pants (like loose fit jeans, only slacks). I own a pair of their Photographer 5-pocket pants, which they no longer sell. :-(
Shame, they fit really well, and since they're slacks cut to look like jeans, I can wear them to work and they look sick with a graphic tee and my python Heyday Super Shifts.. Yeah, I went there.. ;-)

Express reversible belt, Express classic fit jeans, Heyday Super Rox boots
Shops 'till Ya Drop: Zara has some smooth styles for men and women, similar priced to Express on some of their more popular items. I got a couple button-down short sleeve shirts from them, sadly my muscle-boobs and arms are more comfortable in XXL in their tops. Confidence booster perhaps, but it makes me wanna cut down to 195lbs more each day.. Me wearing a XXL? I did when I was a beastly and chubby 230lbs, but not at a in-shape 202..

H&M is always a good spot for gear at a great price! The 5-pocket pants are a welcome substitute for the no-longer available 5-pocket Photographer Pants from Express. They come in plenty of colors, and they also look great with a tee and kicks (yup, Heyday!).. ;-) I also like their boxer briefs, and the $10 pique polo tops that fit pretty well and feel great for spring/summer ensembles.. They also have new signature lines in select stores for David Beckham, Versace, and recently announced Marni at HM collection. The prices even on these new lines are not over the top, but the styles can be!

Karmaloop is the "My Style Will Remain Fresh!" site on the web right now, specializing in many niche brands that many don't see beyond A&F and other chain brands. How many do you know rock PLNDR, or RVCA? Not many, but the ones that do get it from Beantown's beacon of style. The website is stocked with many styles for ladies and gentlemen, and someone is usually on twitter with a promo code if you dig for it..

I know nothing about posting promo codes on Twitter... By the way use promo code TeamHD on https://www.heydayfootwear.com/shoes/ . Today's sarcasm brought to you by, eh who am I kidding?!

Got some new styles to share? Any clothing/shoe brands I should check out? Cool! Hit me up on Twitter @mrcamillo and perhaps I can write up something on that brand. I'm slightly relentless when it comes to getting the word out on things..

I'm on a boat..

Anabolic State, Part Deux!

Welcome! If you missed the first blog, here's a quick refresher:

  1. I'm not a doctor, but I have referenced my information from actual medical personnel, and books on the subject.
  2. I don't condemn, nor condone the use of anabolic hormones, especially if you're a professional athlete
  3. There is a difference between having a medical condition, and using the excuse for an edge. If you need it, be smart with it.
  4. I'm fat.. ;-)
  5. We would all be better off learning about things instead of blaming them for what athletes do. If a vial sits there and no one touches it, fine. If the athlete decides to use it, it's their fault not the drug!!
Okay, off the soapbox to get back to the topic.

Did you know the DEA and the FDA in 1994 didn't even want to make steroids illegal? There was, and probably never will be, evidence to prove that anabolic steroids have the same narcotic characteristics of other drugs. In other words: it can't kill you on its own. Cocaine and heroin are highly addictive, and if your body can't process them you can overdose rather easily and die. The sad part, you'll never know what dose will kill you. Steroids, as in testosterone and its derivatives, only have a psychological addiction. Guys (hell, and some girls. Let's be real, here!) feel amazing on them, stronger and more confident. Personalities can be emphasized on testosterone (not "roid rage", but just intensifying the asshole part), it's even used in some cases to help depression. Don't believe me? Hit up Google, you'll find plenty of trials from here, and other countries who've used testosterone for "anti-aging" use.

From a sports point of view, I do understand why athletes use so-called PED's. Mainly, and this goes for the real physically demanding sports (MMA, football, yes even soccer) the allure is for the speedy recovery time during training. You run your body like a truck, it'll sooner or later start feeling like a hatchback. Plenty of players are able to recover, even stave off injury with this. That's where the "performance-enhancing" comes in. I hate calling these products Performance Enhancing Drugs because taking them won't make anyone a better athlete. I've done my share of amateur mma competitions, and have beaten guys who were on something. Wait, if they're on something, wouldn't that make them a better fighter? Guess not, if they lost to me, and others. Basically, taking some pills or injecting some oils won't make anyone GSP overnight.

Stick around, I may add some other tidbits and such to stake my case. Possibly talk about supplements that aren't so "natural" that slip under the radar. Once again, I only intend to inform, and hopefully anyone who reads this will read further, and form their own opinion.
