These Grooming Tips Will Keep You Looking Dapper All Winter Long


Are you ready for Winter? I’m prepared thanks to American Crew…

Winter Grooming

To get you prepared for winter and the holiday season, you need the right products to keep your hair looking good and skin-game fresh. I don’t know about you guys, but my skin gets dry and flaky once the winter winds start rolling in. And there’s nothing I hate more than flaky skin (and so do my black shirts). So to tackle the dry skin that comes with winter weather, I’ve got a couple products to recommend.

Once the temperature starts to drop, its hat season. The thing about hats, is that they really mess up your hair. That is, unless you use the right products. But in order for the products to really do their magic, you need to start with the right foundation. Your style most likely changes in the winter – talk to your barber about the type of haircut you’re looking for. With the right cut, the rest will be a breeze.

Going back to products, I’m a big fan of American Crew Firm Hold Styling Gel. It provides a great “after-hat hair” in that it allows my hair to look naturally styled, as opposed to that “just out of the shower wet look.” If you find yourself putting on a hat to trek to that holiday party, this product is for you.


Firm Hold Styling Gel has the ultimate holding power, with a non-flaking formula that allows for easier distribution through the hair. Its alcohol-free formula is enriched with natural extracts like Vitamin B5 to help hair look thicker with added shine. A low pH also prevents drying of the hair and scalp (which means no flakes). It can be broken up once dry, becoming subtle enough to add other American Crew products. It works well with all hair types and is suitable for everyday use.

And everyone’s favorite part about winter is no more sweating. In summer, I need at least three showers a day, but once the temp drops, I don’t sweat as much, which means my cologne lasts, and I end up smelling great all day.

My trick to smelling great all day is American Crew 3-IN-1 Tea Tree.


It’s an all-in-one shampoo, conditioner and body wash designed to cleanse, condition and soften hair and skin. Thanks to Tea Tree Oil, it deodorizes and refreshes for up to 6-8 hours. A must-have for any gym bag or suitcase, this convenient multi-tasking product works well with all skin and hair types and is suitable for everyday use.

Now on to the “perfect outfit”…

We’ve been huge fans of Marie Kondo’s book on de-cluttering your life and becoming happier. The essence of the book is, every possession you own should bring you joy and happiness. And the way you determine if it does this is you take all your clothes, throw them on your bed, and then pick up each individual item. When you pick it up, if you absolutely love it, then you keep it.

If you have any other feeling, then you donate it.

I did my purge 3 months ago, and got rid of maybe 50-100 items, and ever since have become so much happier with the clothes I wear. My closet is now full of super high-quality items that are timeless, comfortable, and look great on camera.

So with this concept in mind, I want to help you find the perfect outfit this holiday season. Classic pieces like the below never go out of style and are appropriate for the holiday occasions.

For this Winter, this is your perfect outfit.


Once you have this outfit, you can start slowly expanding pieces only if you love them.
