We don’t know where your residence is, but we live in LA! No, not Los Angeles, but rather Louisiana! For those of you who don’t already know, a Louisiana summer is characterized by blazing temperatures and humidity so dense that I’m sure my body has considered growing a set of gills. It’s no joke down here, so it’s no surprise staying cool and looking cool can be a bit of a problematic issue for most guys. But it doesn’t have to be a Catch-22! We like to take what we call the “skyscraper approach”. Just like a skyscraper is nothing without it’s foundation underneath, the pieces in your day-to-day summer wardrobe will soon diminish to nought if you don’t first take care of what’s underneath. No one ever wants to look like they’ve been swimming in chest-deep water when they really haven’t! It’s super simple and may seem like a no-brainer, but it works:
1. Pay that little extra for a good antiperspirant/deodorant. Not a spray or a gel, but a solid. How well the deodorant keeps you from sweating and how long it lasts is more important than the smell.
2. Where a good undershirt. The Hanes five-pack is great for quantity, but lacking in quality because of how thin the shirts are. Wear a good undershirt, whether cotton or blend, and you’ll save the shirt you’re wearing on top. And fellas, if you plan on showing a lil skin, v-necks (regular or deep) and scoop necks are game.
3. HYDRATE…’nuff said.
