2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series


451 horsepower just not enough for you? Well, how about 510 then. And that’s exactly what you’ll get in the2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series. Mated to an AMG Speedshift multiple-clutch 7-speed multimode automatic transmission (try saying that 5 times) that snaps off shifts in just 1/10th of a second, the C63 Black will shred its way to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds, which should make good use if its planetary-sized 19″ wheels and 15″ brakes when it comes time to stop and turn. AMG has also shed the pounds by dropping in an aluminum hood and lightweight plastic composite fenders for even more performance. DTM racing inspired bodywork also packs an equally venomous exhaust growl that would make the late Pavarotti (g.r.h.s.) himself proud. As for an asking price — look for it to costs north of $ 139,300 (97,000 euros). Look for this dynamo to land stateside in March.

Stand Up: The Importance of Posture


Confidence and having confidence, or trying to be cool and making yourself look cool; ultimately these two factors have a big impact on how we dress and how our outfit works. But how many of you have stopped and actually thought seriously about how you are standing? And how it might be affecting the way you look.  Good posture doesn’t really figure in the average fashion routine, even though almost all of us will at some point have had the “stand up straight, shoulders back” talk from a parent or other suitable source of authority. I am equally sure that each and every one of us has then deployed the usual acknowledgement of said command and then returned almost immediately, or at least whenever practical, to our prior hunch backed stance.
It is very easy to underestimate just how important having a good posture is, even more so for those that have a keen interest in fashion and the way they dress.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Tailor

Your relationship with your tailor is crucial:  a good one knows your physique and appreciates your worldview.  You're trusting him with your appearance in the field of sartorial battle, so to speak, so choose wisely.  And once you've got your man (or woman) get the most out of the relationship by adhering to a few general principles. 
Know what you’re after.Do you like a break in your trousers? Do you like to show a little extra cuff? These may seem like obvious points, but you’d be surprised how many guys show up for a fitting unprepared to give direction. These are decisions you learn through experience, and you shouldn’t leave them to anybody else, even the most trusted master of the needle and the thread.
Dress accordingly.If you’re having a jacket altered, wear a dress shirt you like—and that fits the way you like a shirt to fit. If you’re having pants hemmed, wear shoes you normally wear: you don’t want to be appraising a pair of tuxedo trousers while wearing your Jack Purcells. (So no, we’re not recommending you wear Converse with a tux.)

Diet Soda Can be A Smile Killer

A recent study published in the Academy of General Dentistry, concluded that diet sodas can destroy your smile by "softening the enamel on your teeth and weaken healthy tooth structure. Doctors say: "What the diet soda lacks in sugar, it makes up for in acid. It takes seven minutes from the time you take your first sip for the acids to start eroding your teeth."


So what if you just can’t give up the the habit? The best solution is to brush your teeth immediately after drinking so the acids won’t have a chance to settle. When brushing isn’t an option, mouthwash or water is better than nothing.  Now you know!
