4 Essential Items You Need This Fall
Autumn has arrived, which means you’ll need warmer clothes that fit the season and help you look great.  Make it easy on yourself by focusing on these key pieces that will elevate your style and won’t require a ton of shopping or cash.
A Button Down Oxford
A truly timeless all-season shirt, the button-down Oxford really shines in the fall.  Much like Tabasco Sauce, which can go on damn near anything, the button down Oxford is the people’s champ that can be easily layered with vests, sweaters, and blazers.  Slightly thicker than other shirts in your closet, it’s great for slightly chillier days.  And just as Tabasco never goes bad, Oxfords are such a wardrobe staple that you can feel good investing in quality piece you can wear year round for the next decade. 
The Button Down Vest

The classic button down vest is your best friend for the fall.  Dependable and loyal, the vest is always there when you need it and doesn’t smother you when you need some space.  Like baby bear’s porridge, the vest doesn’t make you feel too cold or too hot - it’s always inexplicably perfect.  Maybe it’s because it keeps your core warm while your arms are free.  Maybe it’s because secret hobo magic is worked at the fabric mill.  I can’t be sure, but you definitely won’t go wrong with a vest.  Darker colors (grays, navy, brown) will always look good while solids and simple patterns will match easiest with your shirts and jackets.
A Fine Woven Sweater
A great crewneck sweater is like a crowbar in a zombie apocalypse.  No matter the situation, it’s probably going to be pretty damn useful.  Not only is a quality sweater practical - it’s easily layered with an Oxford or jacket for flexibility in any weather - but it’s also got timeless style.  

Look for colors such as a tan or classic black that will match easily, and if you have the cash, go cashmere.  A fine cashmere sweater is so light and yet so warm that it will give you the option to go out sans bulky jacket - perfect for those early fall days. 
A Navy Blazer

Though jackets and blazers can be expensive, they last pretty much forever (unless your side business is breeding moths in your closet).  They’re truly an item of clothing where if you have 2-3 great pieces, you’ll be set for life.  The Navy Blazer is one of those pieces.  Firstly, the color navy is a fashion staple that won’t go out of style in your lifetime.  Navy has the same versatility as black, with an extra splash of color to set you apart.  Secondly, wearing a blazer brings instant credibility, presence and confidence, which is why blazers have been popular since the early 1800s.  It’s already worked for a lot of dudes for 200 plus years and it will probably work for you too.  Look for a 2 button that fits your body, being careful to avoid buying something too long (you’ll look old) or too tight in the chest.
Follow these tips and you’ll have a kick ass wardrobe for the fall.  Now you can enjoy that pumpkin spice latte and enjoy the foliage looking like the dapper man of autumn you’ve always dreamed of

The ultimate hangover recovery guide
Whether you just had a couple drinks too many at your friend’s birthday party, or you woke up in a urine soaked bear costume without your own clothes, our Hangover Recovery Guide will help you hit reset after a night of crazy debauchery:
Step 1: Drink Mineral Water

Flushing your system with plenty of water is the first and best step to treat your hangover. Alcohol dehydrates your body by making you run to the bathroom (at least I hope you made it to the bathroom…), and the first part of getting back on your feet is putting some H2O back in your system. A handy trick is to drink mineral water.  Unlike regular water, mineral water has key electrolytes that your hungover body is thirsting for and helps you get back on your feet faster.
Step 2: Shower up
Getting cleaned up is crucial. Not only will a hot shower wash away the sweat and grime from last night’s bad decisions, but it will also help you feel and smell clean.  Being clean and not smelling of alcohol (and maybe vomit) will help you mentally get back into gear and get over any lingering feelings of nausea.  The hot water will also jump start your metabolism which will help you process any remaining alcohol as well as lead you into the next step.
Step 3: Eat hangover fighting foods

As long as you aren’t feeling nauseous, eating foods that help flush your body of harmful hangover-causing toxins is key. Go with simple and effective staples like eggs, bananas, and oranges. Unlike processed foods, they won’t upset your stomach, are easy for your alcohol addled body to process, and have key nutrients that help your body heal. Resist the urge to go for a juicy burger - less greasy but sodium rich foods like salty crackers will help you get your strength back, while also providing crucial electrolytes and energy.
Step 4: Bonus steps
If you are lucky enough to have a free day, just pass out in bed. A solid nap around 90 minutes will energize you without making you groggy. Some pain killers can also help if you need to make a pounding headache go away.
By following this guide, you’ll be back to your old self in no time. Sure, you may have lost your keys, your wallet, and probably a good chunk of your dignity, but you’ve recovered and hopefully are wiser for it.
