Unlike the guys in the gym who spend an hour on bicep curls, you don’t need any equipment to hit all your body’s biggest muscle groups. “You just need to be performing the exercises correctly, at the correct tempo,” says Savage. Tension stimulates growth; by slowing down your reps, your muscles spend more time under tension, which means they get bigger quicker.
The idea that we can beat procrastination through sheer will power – by clenching our teeth and forcing our way into self-discipline – is a myth which has been busted a long time ago. The real path to self-discipline can’t be further from this misguided popular perception.
When the warm weather arrives, so do your insecurities about being seen with your top off. Hence adverts that promise fat-burning potions, shakes that build muscle overnight, and gym equipment salvaged from the Spanish Inquisition that promises to turn beer belly to washboard in six easy payments.
But ignore these drastic interventions. If you’re no stranger to the gym, then the best route to a better body is to fix the missteps that undermine your sweat. So switch off the infomercials and start crafting that beach physique.

Or maybe it’s just not very cool for bros to sit around and brag about their personal hygiene. Either way, there are some serious hygiene habits that are missing from the average male’s daily routine.
Double breasted suits are more versatile than you think. Reminiscent of 1920s era gangsters and Will Ferrell in Anchorman, why these suiting styles ever faded from popularity is a mystery; after all, characters like Nucky Thompson and Ron Burgundy epitomize the type of fortitude we aim to cultivate here at Devious Gentlemen. One’s a badass and the other is, well, just an ass… but a lovable one at that!
Tailoring in winter is easy: wool, dark colors, done. Spring, on the other hand, poses a problem. It’s bright(er), it’s warm(ish), and suddenly winter’s wardrobe looks a touch funereal. But because you’re not Alessandro Michele, turning up in head-to-toe florals might precipitate a trip to your boss’ office, for a disciplinary meeting.

Fashion retail brands and off-the-rack suiting labels are designed specifically with that consumer ignorance in mind. Their materials & construction are usually of poor quality, made in volume by a ‘fast fashion’ industrial complex.
Part of being a true gentlemen is not only having the looks, intelligence, and demeanor to get the girl but also the ability to keep that lovely lady and make her happy. Relationships take work and if you don’t have the drive to work for that relationship then you probably shouldn’t be in it. After you’ve locked-down that special crush use these simple romantic gestures to make her melt faster than the Polar ice caps.
