How to Wear Shorts

How to Wear Shorts

Wearing shorts is one of the best ways to stay cool during the summer. Shorts are perfect for weekend shenanigans, dog walks, the beach, the pool, barbecues, picnics, romantic walks in the park...you get the point. Shorts are inherently casual, but that doesn't mean they have to look adolescent and sloppy. So why do most men look so bad wearing shorts? Well, they're just not wearing them correctly. Their shorts don't fit, and they're not wearing the right styles. This post teaches Continue Reading

Grooming for Modest Men, Part 2: Hair Care

Hair care and facial hair basics

This is the second of a two part series about basic grooming for men. Part one was about men's skin care. Hair care is just as important, and many men are not caring for their hair properly (including their facial hair). That's why I asked Josh Meyer, founder of Brickell Men’s Products, to break down basic hair care principles and techniques here on The Modest Man. Pay close attention to his advice. More importantly, put it into practice! And if your grooming products could use an Continue Reading

Jay Butler Review: Stylish Shoes In All Sizes

Jay Butler Review

I'm excited to introduce a relatively new brand called Jay Butler. It was was created by a fellow style blogger named Justin Jeffers. His site is The Fine Young Gentleman, and I've been following it since before I started The Modest Man. Justin is known for his somewhat aggressive tastes (red velvet jacket, anyone?) and his unapologetically bad grammar. But he really knows his stuff when it comes to menswear. I especially like his product reviews, which tend to be very detailed and Continue Reading

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Fathers Day Gift Ideas

Buying a Father's Day present seems easy. Men aren't that complicated, right? Just get him a new tie or some business socks, and call it a day. On second thought...most dads don't really need another necktie, especially those who are below average height (because it will definitely be too long). In fact, many fathers don't really need anything. But what do they want? The perfect gift for any dad is something he would absolutely love but would never buy for himself. In my modest opinion, Continue Reading

Cladwell Review

Sponsored Post: This post was made possible by Cladwell. I started using Cladwell back in 2014 after meeting the co-founders at StyleCon in LA, and I think it's a great tool for you. Read on to find out why! Here's a simple yes or no question for you: Is your wardrobe complete? If you're like most men, the answer is "no" or "I have no idea...". And that's okay. You're perfectly normal! The fact is, building a wardrobe - and shopping for clothes, in general - is confusing and way too Continue Reading

Grooming for Modest Men, Part 1: Skin Care

Grooming 101 for Modest Men

Which is more important to you - grooming or clothing? Most of us tend to favor one over the other by putting more time and energy into it. But the truth is, both are equally important, and both are crucial for short men. Unlike height, both grooming and clothing are completely within your control. And that's why you should make sure your grooming routine is 100% optimized. The first step is understanding the basics of grooming, something most men have misconceptions about. For example, Continue Reading

ShirtCycle Review: Hassle Free Made to Measure Shirts

ShirtCycle Review

This post was made possible by ShirtCycle. As always, it's 100% honest and objective. Want a free $90 shirt? Make sure you're on The Modest Man email list (five winners will be selected randomly from this list). Is buying made-to-measure shirts a great way to get button up shirts that actually fit your body? Yes. Is it easy? Not really. It doesn't always work out. But one company is trying to take the risk and hassle out of buying made-to-measure shirts. Truth is, the Continue Reading

10 Warm Weather Essentials

10 Warm Weather Essentials

There comes a time in every man's life where he has to stop what he's doing, take a good hard look at his closet and ask himself, "Am I ready for summer?". Sure, there's the obvious prep work - storing away your winter jackets, moving your boots to the storage closet, making sure your swim trunks still fit (no judgement here). But what about that other stuff? The stuff you don't think about until it's too late. Some of it's nice to have. Some of it's crucial. All of it is important if Continue Reading
