A Guide to… Socks and Shoes

Which pair of shoes to wear with which trousers? What about the socks? Do laces really matter? If you have ever asked yourself any of these questions, chances are that you will find Individualism’s Shoe edition of “A Guide to…” undoubtedly useful.

To kick off this series, we are focusing on an essential element of your every day outfit; shoes. Studies have shown that people, specifically women, notice your shoes before any other part of your attire, so make sure you’re using those socks to wear with your brogues, not to stuff your pants. You can have an impeccably-styled ensemble with the most intricate Detail, right down to the Aspinall cufflinks and Tom Ford glasses,or a smart Button Up made up of a colour scheme put together so well it could make a dog smile, but if all you have to go with your best attire is a pair of curly-toed loafers, something is terribly wrong. Put them down now, walk away, and don’t look back.

As ever, we have a couple of ideas up our sleeves to share with you. A spontaneous pair of vibrant Kickers coupled with some bright socks can compliment an otherwise plain outfit. Size-wise, shoes and socks are perhaps the smallest part of your outfit, so getting the combination right is a nice bit of attention to detail.  It oozes personality and gives others a perception that you know exactly what you’re doing when in actuality, you just read this guide. (You’re welcome.)

As menswear moves into diverse and experimental grounds, the choice of colours and patterns available is incredible. Spots, stripes, houndstooth or jacquard, you name it, there’s a pair out there for you to pull up. Sports trainers with suits and less casual outfits are a great way to manipulate a smart look, allowing you play around with colours, textures and styles.

Don’t be afraid to work with contrasting shoes and socks, and balance your vibrant footwear by keeping the rest of your outfit relatively subtle. Follow these steps as inspiration and pull off creative colour combinations while you put your best foot forward!

Tips to buy the best Sunglass of our choice

Sunglasses are not only an accessory that allows you to look cool and do not squint in the bright sun. This is also a means of protection against ultraviolet rays which may not be the best way to affect the health of the eyes.According to studies, intense ultraviolet radiation from the sun contributes to the development of cataractswhich in turn is the main cause of blindness. Even single exposure to ultraviolet radiation on the eye can cause photo-keratitis, a strong inflammation of the cornea.

What to Remember When Choosing Points

Avoid the unpleasant consequences of being in the sun will help good sunglasses. Such a marking or a mark of UV 400 on glasses is the most important thing that should be looked at when buying glasses.Choose big sunlight goggles that close your eyes not only in front, but also on the sides.It does not matter if you choose glasses with yellow, blue or gray lenses. This does not affect the throughput of ultraviolet rays. However, some color glasses increase the contrast of vision which is very convenient. Lenses with polarization remove glare from reflective surfaces, for example from water. This is convenient when driving or relaxing on the beach but to protect the eyes from UV radiation, polarization has nothing to do.Good glasses with 100% protection from ultraviolet are both expensive and very cheap. When choosing glasses pay attention to these characteristics and you will not only have good glasses but also healthy eyes.

Rim and lens material

First, pay attention to the lens. What kind of glasses for sunglasses to choose. The very nature suggests the glass, behind which the mods are so chasing, is less scratched but only partially restrains the ultraviolet. But quality polymers like polycarbonate prevent the rays A and B from getting on the retina of the eye. Infrared rays delay only polarizing sunglasses and especially the classic image. Not all sunglasses are perfectly dark. Barrier for sunlight is not an intensive coloring of lenses. Even maximally darkened lenses without a protective filter from the ultraviolet damage the eyes even more than semi-transparent glasses. The fact is that behind the dark lenses the pupil involuntarily expands and literally absorbs harmful rays.

Conclusion: Protection from radiation

If you still cannot decide, then try to choose sunglasses by type of protection. The barrier factor and type of filter manufacturers point to a special insert that comes with the accessory. Additionally, some manufacturers note on the liner the conditions in which it is recommended to use glasses. The right choice of sunglasses will help understanding of all their characteristics. Seller’s optics salons often mention polarization, talking about the models of glasses for motorists and fans of beach holidays. In fact, the presence of a polarizing filter indicates that the lens is coated with a special coating, blocking glare and reflections.
