Inspired by both a love for fashion and a frustration at how it reached the consumer, James Costa, Larry Lemons and Jared Cook (the founders of style destination Nifty Genius) developed the Curated Menswear Experience, a direct-to-consumer collection that puts the latest fashion and lifestyle trends right into the hands of their customers.

What sets this curated experience apart is that it isn’t solely focused on clothing—it also features  bags, footwear, headwear, accessories, vintage watches, furnishings and even cars.

“It’s taking that mentality of style profiling to the next level,” remarked Costa. “We want to meet every aspect of our customer’s style needs, from what products he uses in his bathroom to what kind of car he drives off in.”

The items available for purchase come from a large assortment of well-known brands, including Rolex, Porsche, Lucky Bastard, Crosby Square and Jaguar, just to name a few.

Though a major focus of Nifty Genius is on providing its customers with a wide selection of products from several third-party vendors, the brand also has its own independent clothing line.

The Nifty Genius collection features a selection of  button-down shirts in stripes, solids and checkered-prints ($95-$115), patterned and solid blazers ($325), pleated pants ($115) and solid-colored chinos ($105). The pieces come in muted tones of blue, black and gray.

Additionally, all the garments feature the use of ultra-suede technology, a microfiber that doesn’t crack, fade or stretch. The soft material appears along the seams of the pieces and in their labels, which are individualized with laser-etched illustrations and script.

As it stands now, customers are able to handpick items from the various vendors à la carte, but Costa says the brand will incorporate specialized curation into the shopping experience by the end of the year.

“We’re planning to expand the site into a full-on concierge service,” he described. “The idea is that a customer can select articles of clothing he likes and then get suggestions about items that would pair well with his personal aesthetic.”

The world today is based on a "throwaway culture." That means we have become obsessed with one-time-use items like plastic water bottles, grocery bags, and paper towels. While this can make things feel cheaper and easier up front, it can be more expensive and cumbersome in the long run, not to mention hazardous to the environment. This is also true with your wardrobe. There are plenty of places you can get cheap clothing if you just need to wear it one time. In the long run, though, this is detrimental to you, your bank account, and the environment.

Learning how to care for your wardrobe to make it last longer is better for you, your wallet, and your sanity. Invest in quality items that are made to stand the test of time so that you won't have to shop for clothing every time a new event comes up like other men do. Once you have those quality items, here are the tips that will ensure they last for years, and maybe even a lifetime.

TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph Night Driver

TAG Heuer, the renowned Swiss luxury watchmaker, has unveiled its latest men's watch, the Monaco Chronograph Night Driver, which is set to redefine nighttime driving experiences. In this limited edition release, TAG Heuer captures the essence of the "Night Driver" and pays tribute to the iconic Monaco collection. It draws inspiration from the vintage Monaco's midnight blue, charcoal gray, and matte black dials while incorporating cutting-edge materials and technology.
The magic of nighttime driving
Driving at night carries a unique allure, especially when it comes to glowing watches. With distractions minimized, drivers connect intimately with their vehicles and the road. Every nuance is heightened, making the experience pure and exhilarating. As darkness descends, the importance of reliable instruments becomes paramount. The Monaco Chronograph Night Driver steps in as the ideal companion. Dashboard instruments illuminate the car's vital statistics, and the driver's chronograph assumes a central role. At night, legibility is key, ensuring that drivers can access precise information instantly. TAG Heuer's latest creation excels in this regard.

Luminescent innovation
The standout feature of the Monaco Chronograph Night Driver is its fully luminescent dial. This technical marvel utilizes Super-LumiNova to achieve exceptional luminosity, allowing the dial to remain prominently visible in the dark for up to three hours after charging. The deep gray "circle" at the center of the dial provides a strong contrast with the bright blue Super-LumiNova finish of the hands, enhancing legibility.
