Tomorrowland 2015 Fall/Winter Lookbook

Contemporary Japanese label Tomorrowland makes a return to the fold with its collection for Fall/Winter 2015. Like many of its compatriot labels, Tomorrowland is an expert of sorts in appropriating classic silhouettes with distinctive twists – materials, construction, etc. – to create a new dynamic. For the upcoming season, the brand found a way to evolve contemporary staples like joggers, cardigans and pilot’s jackets, imbuing each silhouette with custom materials worked with Japanese craftsmen. Accordingly, a refreshing use of premium denim, chino, moleskin, corduroy, flannel and tweed is evident throughout the collection. Particular highlights here include the braid- and rib-knit trousers, houndstooth-blocked button-ups and full moleskin suiting – all of which make an impression without being too conspicuous. Check out the pieces here and head to Tomorrowland’s website to pick up some of your favorites.

ChosenMeds.com: Smart Morning Routine for Men

Spring is just about here after a long winter that was awful for skin and hair. However, a few tweaks to your morning routine will make you feel better and lead to improved skin and body in the long run. Here are some of ChosenMeds.com most popular products to lead to a rejuvenated morning routine for the Spring.

The Face: Use a Facial Cleanser

Using a facial cleanser will lead to immediately brighter skin. The MenScience Facial Cleansing mask is great for the skin as you can feel it working on your face. It absorbs the impurities and clears pores of residues and excess oil, leaving your skin super clean, revitalized and smooth.

Follow up with the (Malin + Goetz) Grapefruit Face Cleanser.

The Beard: Shave

Be sure to set some time in your routine for this essential grooming task. Even if you don’t need to shave every day, give yourself a few minutes every morning to do a quick one-over. MenScience Advanced Shave Formula is great for all skin ranges from normal to sensitive skin. It will help protect your skin with a thick, lubricating layer and allows shaving in any direction for several passes without reapplication.

The Hair: Scalp Therapy

Though your hair loss may be genetic, you can treat hair loss in the early stages with top-quality products. Thymuskin Treatment and the Thymuskin Gold Shampoo help guard against hair loss, dandruff, and environmental damage.

The Body: Move Your Body
A good workout in the morning will improve both your body and your mind — now and in the future. In addition to exercise building a fitter, hotter body, the endorphin rush it results in will put you in a cheery mood for hours, and your skin will become clearer over time.

After a workout, we recommend (Malin + Goetz) Bergamot Body Wash because it gently and effectively purifies and balances all skin types, especially sensitive and eczema prone, unlike traditionally harsh detergents.

The Skin: Use SPF

UV radiation can quickly add years to your face, so protect what you’ve been lucky enough to start with. Use sunblock with a high SPF (like MenScience TiO2 Sunblock) to guard against early signs of skin damage.
