Rodeo BEAR

Greetings bears, cubs, chasers, daddies, chubs, grizzlies, and any other forest creatures we failed to mention. We are WoofTEASE.

URSA Skin Care For Men, Live Major

by Accidental Bear

As a pretty typical gay-homosexual I like to have good skin. Even coming from the beardy point of view, your cheeks and neck are still out there for the world to see and judge. As boy I would lather my mothers flowery, brightly colored products all over my face and practice french kissing my hand. Even at a young age, I knew the smell wasn’t to my liking, I wanted something that said, ” I  am man , hear me roar” but with nice skin. Ursa skin products for men was brought to attention just this morning and I am ready to consume the whole line. Take a look men. Did you notice the awesome label?

 

Ursa Major is passionate about human and environmental health. We take great care to develop clean, healthy skin care products which work incredibly well and also offer a wonderful experience. We never use parabens, sulfates, petroleum and petroleum derived chemicals, glycols (propylene glycol), ethoxylated chemicals (PEGs), ethanolamines (TEA, DEA, MEA), synthetic colors, synthetic polymers, silicones, phthalates, chemical sunscreens or formaldehyde donors.

Men’s Skin 101

You may have noticed: men’s facial skin is different to women’s skin. It’s thicker, oilier, has more pores and sweats more. And of course men have much tougher, faster-growing hair follicles or ‘whiskers’. All this creates a unique set of challenges best met by regular use of skincare products designed specifically for men.

 Check out what it’s all about bearmageddon.com 

Bearmageddon is a story about a few every-day twenty-somethings getting caught up in an all-out war on mankind by grizzly bears.  That’s all I’m going to say for now because I don’t want to spoil anything.

The Hill-Side Neckwear for Autumn/Winter 2011 Looks

by Accidental Bear

This is a new category for me, neckwear. The term makes me think of being a child with a cold, and having Vicks Vapor Rub spread all over my chest and my mother tying a bandana (neckwear) around my neck and tucking me away. Anyone else?

 

The Hill-Side neckwear brand for their Autumn/Winter 2011 run: neckties, scarves and  feature a handful of familiar faces. “We handed off the new collection of ties, scarves, and handkerchiefs to Mikael so he could carry it with him as he traveled around the country photographing friends and new people who crossed his path…” said The Hill-Side.

Levi’s Vintage Clothing Double Breasted Parka

by Accidental Bear

Selectism - lvc-parka-01

 You may have flashbacks to 90’s pea coats but give it a fresh make over of a plaid lining, corduroy collar, two side flap pockets and horn buttons. This coat is most definitely worth arm wrestling your best friend over or stealing from some trick at a bar (I didn’t say that).

Dressing Taller: 10 Tips for Short Men brought to you by The Art of Manliness Website

by Accidental Bear

Via artofmanliness.com : Good work men.

10 Tips on Dressing Taller

FYI – I put these ten tips in orders of practicality and cost.  I realize some of these are beyond some men’s resources or not options worth considering–but I lay them out there so that you can make that decision yourself.

1. Monochromatic Color Themes

Along the same lines as minimizing visual clutter, removing contrasting color from your appearance helps streamline the way you look. Keeping all your clothes within a fairly consistent color theme, especially a dark one, will create an illusion of height. Different color shades are fine–just try to keep it loosely monochrome.

When you do wear different colors or different shades of the same color, try to weight the darker colors toward the bottom half of your body. That way people’s attention starts down near your feet and travels upward. Dark trousers with a lighter shirt create a lengthening effect; a darker shirt with lighter pants shortens your appearance.

Rag & Bone Men’s Looks for Spring/Summer 2012

by Accidental Bear

 

What happens when you mix your pajamas with a suit and put them on hippies? There is so more talk about women’s skirts and dress length but I think more dedication needs to be on men’s pants length. I am not a fan of these capri- ish length pants below.

Naked & Famous Glow in the Dark Selvedge Denim Jeans

by Accidental Bear

These jeans will be desired by some and to ween down that grouping more is their price of $240. I was working retail back in the peak of raver day’s and can remember these little, brightly colored kids, sucking of pacifiers and glow sticks usually had mommy and daddy’s gold card in their back pocket. I call that roughing it, not! So, these pants will still be worn by those trying to get away with their down and out-starving-artist-wannabe-look. Money is nothing to be ashamed of, I just don’t have any.

GlowintheDark.jpg

Sartorially-minded ravers everywhere rejoice: your uniform for this fall has been decided. Naked & Famous recently dropped their unique Japanese selvedge creation on select Barneys New York and Barneys CO-OP locations.

See, the secret is in the phosphorescent coating which, when exposed to natural or artificial light (read: wearing them all day) absorbs and charges that light and then BAM! You step into your favorite lounge or dive bar looking like a walking glow stick. But, during work hours, these go-to worthy pair of straight leg 13.5 oz. raw indigo denims will keep you the incognito Clark Kent of clubland: safe until the sun sets…
