Due to the casual history of the loafer, it is unlikely to ever be considered a truly formal men’s shoe. But by following a few simple pointers, you can be sure to pull off a stylish ensemble with comfort and flair.
Throughout time, loafers have adorned the feet of royals, been improved by Norwegians and popularised by Europeans and Americans alike. But where does the loafer come from?

Here are three crazy ways to get taller that we certainly would not recommend at home, no matter how short you are!
While it makes sense that giant NBA players are getting a good wage, few people actually realise that it is not just in sports where height can tender an career advantage.

So why is it that height can transfer to career success so easily, and just what can you do about it if you’re not naturally blessed with height? Continue reading

Height is inextricably linked in our subconscious to power, and therefore it is unsurprising that taller people tend to do better in business. By almost all measurements, taller people rise higher in business, earn more money and progress further in their careers.
