10 Tips For Choosing Shooting Clothing

Shooting clothing can be difficult to purchase for the uninitiated, and whilst getting it right might be a significant investment, getting it wrong can be a costly mistake.

1. You’ll probably find it hard to find one set of shooting clothes that does it all, and for all weathers and season.  Depending on where and when you are hunting, and what you’re hunting for, you might want to make sure that you have different sets of shooting clothing.

2. Formal shooting clothing needs to offer a lot of arm and leg movement, and be flexible.   Remember that you might also be wearing several layers underneath, so you’ll want to make sure that you can still move freely even when you’re dressed for the depths of winter.

3. You might want your outdoor clothing to be breatheable and waterproof.  This is so that you don’t have to choose between staying warm and staying dry.  You also won’t want to carry lots of additional clothing with you, just in case the weather changes.

4. Clothing for clay pigeon shooting can be more colourful, as you’re not going to frighten real game away.  You’ll still need to make sure that your clothing offers good arm movement.

5. If your role is one of beating or picking up, then you’re clothing needs to be tough and durable.  Shooting clothing will take a battering in these roles, and so you won’t want to have to replace it every time you’ve been hunting.

6. The shooting jacket is probably the most important item of shooting clothing you’ll buy.  It will need to keep you warm and dry, and give you the flexibility you need.  You’ll also need it to be comfortable, for those long days out in the field.

7. You shouldn’t scrimp on your shooting trousers.  Whether you choose shooting trousers or breeks, you’ll want to make sure that they offer the same sort of protection from the elements and the environment, and flexibility as your shooting jacket.

8. Socks and boots shouldn’t be an afterthought.  You’ll be spending all day stood up, and want to remain warm, dry and comfortable, even after walking many miles.

9. Accessories such as hats scarves, gloves, and bags can make your shooting outfit complete, and really make your time outside more enjoyable.  If you’re warm dry and comfortable, you’re much more likely to have a successful day’s shooting.

10. You don’t have to buy the cheapest clothing in order to get value for money.  If your jacket or trousers is worn often, and lasts for several years and still looks as good and performs as well as it did when you bought it, then it’s great value for money, no matter how much it cost.  If it seems like you’re replacing your jacket or trousers every time you’ve been out shooting, then you’re not getting value for money.

Fashion Tips for Men

Being a male is tough enough, we have to provide for ourselves and our families, we are supposed to know how to fix almost anything when it is broken, we are required to be sensitive and most importantly we are supposed to always look good. The hardest part about being a male is the fact that we are required to know everything, do everything and be everything to everyone. Don’t you find this hard to live up to such standards?

When it comes to fashion men just need to follow these 4 tips. The best part about following these 4 tips is that you will be able to look fashionable with ease.

Fashion tips for men

Dress up – The first way a man can be fashionable is if he dresses up. It doesn’t matter if you are going to church, a wedding or even shopping with the guys, you should always look good and dressing up is a great way to make you look important while standing out in a non threatening way.

Dark jeans – The nice thing about wearing dark jeans is that they look similar to slacks and just like I said above dressing up will show power in a non threatening way. Something I always like to do when I wear dark jeans is accompany them with a light shirt, black or white shoes, and a bold watch. The reason I put all these together is because it will make your face, watch, and your bottom stand out.

Lightweight jacket – The nice thing about wearing a lightweight jacket is that you can easily add that when you dress up or when you wear dark jeans. The thing I love about a lightweight jacket is that you can wear them when it is hot or cold outside and it won’t affect you that much.

Clean shoes – If you want to be fashionable then you need to always wear clean shoes. They don’t need to just be clean on the bottom and inside but on the sides as well. A great rule of thumb is to have 5 different pairs of shoes and never wear the same one back to back. You always need to give time to clean the shoes if need be and let them air out.
