Creating A Unique Style

NOTE: Blank Label is a new sponsor of The Professional Wingman.

Remember the days of “peacocking?” Guys dressing ridiculously just to get attention from women? The crazy thing was it worked until women caught on. Today, there are enough holidays and theme parties to wear those things you thought were socially appropriate. So why not do some homework and find out what actually makes man stand out from his pack?

I remember over a year and a half ago, I put out a blog post about finding good shirts. It was a great post for someone who was looking to get a basic idea as to what to wear and how to find things that worked for them.

In the age of purchasing clothes online from places like Zappos, Amazon and eBay, why not order customized shirts? Think about it. You would essentially be the only person to have the shirt. Imagine a wardrobe filled with customized shirts that no one else can buy in stores or replicate. Pretty cool, huh?

I introduce to you, Blank Label.

Instead of explaining it in words, Molly from was awesome enough to do a video of ordering a shirt on BL. Enjoy. PS - Who’s that guy in the pink shirt on the home page?

The shirts use quality material, fit REALLY well, are durable and inexpensive, compared to other custom shirts. I personally have two shirts from BL, one that I have worn on a recent episode of LoveNation.

Get Stains Out of Shirts Quickly

I came across this blog post by Blank Label (written by Youmi Park). Their information is very basic yet easy to ignore. I have always said that it's the little things that make the difference. I am posting the full post here but you can check out the original blog post here.

So say you’re out meeting a date, meeting the boss, meeting the parents, meeting and greeting anyone and everyone. Whilst your meeting, you take swigs of red wine, slurps of marinara pasta, bump in to greasy mechanics, and by the time you realize low and behold there is a stain on your beautiful dress shirt.

If you noticed, other people will too and let me tell you men, there is nothing more sloppy or cheapening than a giant stain on an otherwise nice shirt. No one wants a big child around that can’t keep his food in his mouth or his hands to himself, and that’s the vibe you send out.

Therefore, when in times of desperation run, sprint to these 6 tips on how to get stains out of your shirts (quick!):

1. Use Sprite: While your date or engagement is away, order some Sprite or other clear, carbonated beverage and use that to dab away at your shirt’s stain. The bubbles have the same microscopic scrubbing effect as soap! Especially effective for coffee stains!
2. Warm Water and Dryer: Excuse yourself to the bathroom and wet the stained area with warm water. Remember to blot, not scrub. Then, dry the wet shirt with the dryer in the bathroom.
3. Soap: Self-explanatory. Still, do not forget to only dab!
4. Shampoo: If you are at your home, girlfriend/boyfriend’s, or at any sort of house party, make yourself to the bathroom and find some shampoo. This product works miracles on sweat stains and oil/ grease stains.
5. Vinegar and Warm Water: If you’re bold enough to ask for vinegar in a restaurant, use this to dab off red wine stains. It’ll probably be worth the strange look you get from the waiter. What does he know?
6. Put on Your Jacket: I don’t care how hot it is, if you have a jacket and a stain, the stain should be covered at any cost. Sacrifices, men. Sacrifices.

When you make a spill, make sure you notice before the person you are facing lifts her/his eyebrows and lets you know. No matter what, you should probably excuse yourself smoothly to the bathroom and examine the damage, then apply the techniques.

For another easy way to get stains out of shirts quickly, use Tide-To-Go or a bleach pen. Trust me, these are my saving graces and the only reason people can bear being with me.

But seriously, stains are a sign of carelessness and say you are a slovenly person that doesn’t really care about the occasion you are attending, even if you do feel it’s important.

So take care first, to try not spilling and if you do, (because we all do) take the right measures to make your shirt stains disappear. Then afterwards, take it out to the dry cleaners for proper cleaning so you can wear that shirt for a long time. So fresh and so clean, clean.
