STYLE HACKS ONLY SMART MEN KEEP HANDY…
Style Hack 1: Do not let that Fly…Fly!
Your denim | chinos zipper if not of good quality may sometimes leave you embarrassed while you are hanging out with friends or someone special. To save yourself from all the stress here’s a quick trick!
Take out the ring from your keychain and pass it through the pull tab of the zipper. Now zip your pants and tuck the ring in the top button. You are set!
Style Hack 2: Avoid being Un-buttoned
Already getting late for work and you suspect a button getting loose as you button up the shirt. Don’t worry just put a coat of transparent nail polish on both the sides of the bottom on top of the thread and it will last you a few washes or at least a day. Better safe than sorry:-)
Style Hack 3: Post play Shoes
Just back from a round of your favourite sweaty game and your shoes stink…just crumble sheets of newspaper and shove them in the shoes. The smell and moisture will all be absorbed. If you really love you shoes here is more on how to take care.
Style Hack 4: Straighten those collar tips
Very often if you try and straighten the collar tips using a normal iron the tips develop iron marks due to excess fabric inside. Hack it by borrowing your girl’s hair straightener and briefly press it at the tips. Using ‘Collar Stays’ is a good idea too!
Style Hack 5: Stuck Zipper
A problem with metal zippers mostly and when its not YKK! They get stuck in humid weather or if detergent gets stuck in its teeth or with time. Use a black graphite pencil or a candle and rub it in the zipper teeth. Both graphite and wax act as lubricants and ease the slider movement. Never get stuck again!
Style Hack 6: Gum on your favourite garment
Place 2 ice cubes on top of the chewing gum affected area and let it become hard. Soon it will loosen its grip and can be peeled off easily. If its too stubborn watch this video for an extra step.

Accumulation of lint is a common problem with cotton and woollen clothes. Two quick hacks to save you from all that unwanted pilling.

Hack 2: For denims and strong fabrics take a used single use razor and with a light hand shave off the lint by moving the razor in a single direction. Never use on velvets and pile fabrics as it may spoil the cloth permanently.
Style Hack 8: Un-shrink your most loved T-shirt

It will get back to size:-)
