Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand. Think back to the last time you wore truly bangin’ clothes — how did they make you feel? Did you feel more confident? Did you feel like you could walk into any room and immediately start ordering people around? “Hey you — set up a meeting with HR. And you — get Tokyo on the phone. I don’t care that this is a KFC, get it done.”  

Here at The Manual, we like clothes that make us feel good, and not just in terms of confidence. Considering the substantial environmental and social impact of the global garment industry, we think it’s important to rock threads that help lessen said impact. Uniforms for the Dedicated, a Swedish menswear brand dedicated to sustainable innovations, makes clothes that inspire all sorts of good feelings.

Uniforms for the Dedicated applies their philosophy to a wide range of clothes — including coats, blazers, trousers, long-sleeve shirts, t-shirts, and scarves. Whether you’re partial to flashy vestments or a more understated wardrobe, Uniforms for the Dedicated has the socially and environmentally responsible garments you’re looking for.

If you want to feel good about looking good, consider browsing the selection from Uniforms for the Dedicated. If you happen to find yourself in Stockholm, you might consider popping into their brick-and-mortar store, which was constructed using mostly up-cycled materials. However, it’s almost better to be far away, as all orders to outside the European Union are 20% off — yet another thing to feel good about.

Report: Disney Plus is moving away from Marvel limited series TV shows (but that’s a good thing for fans)
We might actually get multiple seasons now
Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel

After more than a decade of dominating on the big screen, Marvel started to spend a much greater percentage of its time focusing on creating TV series. That change happened with the launch of Disney Plus, and has resulted in a glut of streaming series set in various corners of the MCU. While many of those shows have been solid, and a few have been great, recent news suggests that Marvel may be reevaluating their relationship with Disney Plus shows.

Up until now, almost every single Marvel show was at least initially conceived as a limited series. Marvel shows like Hawkeye and Moon Knight were conceived of as one-and-dones, and only Loki has thus far received a second season. Now following the news that Daredevil: Born Again was getting a hard rework from Marvel, we also learned that Marvel's whole approach to limited series may be changing.

Save big, feel better with this sophisticated Laundry Sauce detergent bundle
Laundry Sauce Indonesian Patchouli ingredients displayed

It's tough not to feel guilty about doing your laundry these days, especially when you're doing heavy loads. It uses a lot of water, the average detergent comes in clunky plastic bottles that aren’t great for the environment, and you're using lots of energy. Worse yet -- and maybe this is just a “me” problem -- detergents don't seem to work as well anymore and may cause skin and irritation issues on top of that. Even if you can find something that works for you, there's a good chance it won't smell as good and won't leave your clothes smelling as fresh either -- hello, unscented, and allergy-friendly options. But here's where I'm going to blow your mind. What if there was a performance liquid laundry detergent pod that made doing your laundry better, offered incredible scents, and made with materials sourced in a sustainable, safe, and healthy way?

Enter stage left -- the world stage, of course -- Laundry Sauce. They offer the epitome of laundry sophistication with advanced and long-lasting aromas that improve your laundry experience and, most importantly, make your clothes smell and feel luxurious after every wash. They source their patchouli, for example, from Sulawesi, Indonesia, with a long-term, trusted partner. This improves biodiversity conservation and empowers women and minority communities through gender and social equality. It's a lot to take in, so let's explore further.
