Enter Our Big 10 Championship Game Pool

From Chris Lambert – As many of you know I am originally from Iowa and I still follow them. My Hawkeyes have had an exciting year and a good friend of mine, Jim Casaburo, a Michigan State graduate wants to bet me on the Big Ten Championship game. Evidently, if you spend 6 years as an undergrad at Michigan State it makes you some kind of betting whiz. Anyway, adult beverages are at stake so it must be an important game…

That said, we are inviting all of you to participate in our Big Ten Championship Pool. Simply select who you think will win the game and total amount of points scored. Closest to the correct score wins $100.00 gift certificate to Christopher James. In an event of a tie the scientific coin flip method  will be used to choose the winner.

Good luck!

Red carpet fashion Q&A with Fort Wayne fashion experts – News-Sentinel.com

Monday, March 3, 2014 – 4:13 pm The News-Sentinel red carpet live chat with Julie Clancy from Jophiel and Chris Lambert from Christopher James Menswear went pretty well – OK it went too well. We had such a large number of participants, it locked some folks out!

We go Beyond Luxury Menswear to Bring You Luxury Grooming in Fort Wayne

How much thought do you put into your shave each day? Do you ensure that you’re not only getting rid of unwanted hair, but also that you’re taking good care of the skin underneath? If not, it’s something you might want to think about. Because just like you wear luxury menswear (http://cjmenswear.com/) to keep you feeling your best, there’s nothing you can do more for your skin than use only the best products that will truly help it thrive.

Just like you have the best pieces of Robert Graham (http://cjmenswear.com/who-we-carry-2/), Coppley, and Tommy Bahama in your wardrobe, you also need to have the best grooming products to help you look and feel your best. And that’s just what the Art of Shaving provides. This entire line of men’s grooming products includes everything from the basic creams and razors to lotions, creams, scrubs, aftershaves, and even masks to help your skin remain clean, refreshed, and free of razor burn. The skin on your face is the only part of your entire body that is exposed to the elements 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And so it’s important that it receives only the best care and treatments.

The Facial Wash and Moisturizer from The Art of Shaving will ensure that your skin is always hydrated, replenishing whatever’s lost throughout the day. The creams and lotions used for shaving are only the most gentle, so as to not add to the irritants your skin will meet throughout the day. And specialty products, such as the After Shave Mask, will do double duty, soothing skin after any shave and making it look healthy and happy once again.

When you want the best of everything in life, and you want your skin to have it too, come see us at CJ Menswear. We’re a mens specialty store (http://cjmenswear.com/what-we-do-2/) that knows looking and feeling good extends far beyond your clothes,right down to the skin you live in.
