Shopping Tips for the Modern Male

It’s a dirty job…

This time of year, it’s unavoidable. No matter how much of your Christmas shopping you accomplish online, there are just some things you have to go to the traditional brick and mortar stores to find. I’ve discovered a few tricks to make those times when you have to venture out a little less scary.

  1. Weekends are a no go…  We may have time away from our jobs on the weekends, but hitting the stores during them is a big NO, unless of course you like crowds, long lines and getting backed into by careless drivers of electric carts. If you must venture out on the weekend, go early, VERY early to avoid the crowds.
  2. Weekdays, a big yes… If you do have a day off during the week (holidays excluded), this is a a time when you can actually browse the merch and not get bruised and battered.
  3. Late evenings… Hit the shops an hour or so before closing. The later you go, the less people you will have to fight to get to the things you want.

Hopefully, these tips will spare you unwanted grief and unexpected trips to the emergency room.

Shopping in comfort…

That’s the most important thing, really. Wear comfortable clothing. The more comfortable you feel, the more relaxed you’ll be, even in the most harrowing of situations like when a child spills a slushie down your leg… Yes, it has happened…. My outfit today is both stylish and comfortable. I found the Male Shirt Jacket at AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS as a FREE gift to members of the Third Life Group. The shirt jacket comes in 3 fitmesh sizes and standard sizes S-L and with and without the shirt underneath. The Third Life group has a one time 10L join fee. I picked up the Wasted” Skinny Jeans on one of the many group Lucky Boards at REBELLION. The jeans come with a texture HUD for four different denim colors. You need to be part of the Rebellion group to play, but joining is FREE. And I’m still wearing my new favorite, the Wagner Flat Cap, the FREE SLF&O group gift at Fe Style.

Don’t let the holiday shopping blues get you down…
