    What to wear at a funeral if you don’t like suits Introduction Funerals are the only event we don’t feel joy in attending. There are stressful events, and looking for what to wear makes it a challenging experience. When it comes to what to wear, men are used to wearing black or any dark-coloured suit to show etiquette. If you don't like wearing suits, you don't have to skip a funeral. There are other endless options you can go for. However, it is important to wear something that will blend in. Don't wear something that says, "I'm happy to be here”. Here are a few attires available at Wayrates that you can wear when you don’t have a suit. 1. Sweater and dress pants Not having a tie or a dress shirt in your closet shouldn't stop you from attending the funeral. You can choose to wear a nice sweater and dress pants, especially when the weather is a bit chilly. Choose a shirt that is well-knitted and made from wool or cotton. Make sure both pieces are in dark colours. Also, avoid having busy prints on your sweater since that won’t be funeral appropriate. When the weather is too cold, wear a button-down shirt underneath the sweater for warmth. 2. Polo and khakis Polos are the best to wear to a funeral. However, when you have no other choice, go for polo shirts paired with the dressiest pants in your wardrobe. You can choose to go for dress pants such as chinos and khakis. When it comes to colour, you can choose to go for one in black, navy blue or dark grey. Make sure you tuck in your shirt andwear ablack belt. Wear a nice pair of dress shoes to complete the look.This is the most casual look you can wear to a funeral, but what matters most is your effort to pay your respects. 3. Sport coat, dress shirt, tie and dress pants Perhaps you don’t have a suit, but you have a men’s tactical jacket or blazer. You can choose to pair your jacket with a button-down shirt, tie and dress pants. Make sure your tie is dark in colour. Make sure you choose a dress shirt that is solid white if possible. Also, keep your shoes dark and dressy. Conclusion Experiment with different styles, including men’s tactical clothing , and see what is not appropriate for the funeral.

    How to rebuild men’s wardrobe on a budget Introduction Rebuilding a wardrobe isn’t as easy as it seems. You finally get your dream job and start celebrating. But have you thought about what you will wear on your first day? All you have is maybe clothes from your last job that you wouldn't wish to wear o your new job. The first thing you should consider after getting a new job is revamping your wardrobe. It isn't easy, but it is not as hard as you may think also. You want to wear clothes that are stylish and also appropriate for the job. Here are a few steps to help you build a wardrobe with outfits from Wayrates to save you money and time. 1. Evaluate what you have The first thing to consider is your starting point. Get everything out of your wardrobe and lay it on the floor. This will atleast give you an idea of all you have in your wardrobe. Look at everything you own and divide it into three sections. What you love, what you like and what has to be discarded. The clothing you know you can't live without should be under the "I love it "section. Clothes you wear a lot but don't love should fall under the "like it" section. Other clothes need to be discarded or donated. These clothes include those that don’t fit you or you never wear anymore. Ditch them to create more space in your wardrobe. 2. Current wardrobe Now that you actually have divided your wardrobe into three sections, it is time you start working on your current wardrobe. Look into the love and like section and create outfits out of the pile. Having an interchangeable wardrobe is very important. Thus make sure you have clothes you can wear in more than one setting. For instance, a pair of chino trousers and other men’s cargo pants can be worn in casual and formal settings. Match it with different shirts and jackets to create different outfits. 3. Money and time This involves evaluating your budget for the new wardrobe, and the time you will take to build it. It is important to keep track of your budget for it not to be a stressful experience. If you want to buy tactical clothing, make a deadline and stick to it. Conclusion Experiment with different styles when shopping to get what and what not to include in your wardrobe.

    From Radio Insight: KOAI (The Wow Factor) Phoenix,whichcelebrated its second birthday on Sept. 30, became a quick favorite of Ross on Radio readers, especially when its station stream was made available outside Arizona. Over the first year, PD/consultant John Sebastian tightened the station’s broad mix, eliminating the early 2000s Country aspect and focusing more on ‘70s pop/rock and ‘60s oldies. In year two, KOAI became a serious ratings player, peaking at 3.7 in August. (It was at 2.6 in September.) Sebastian, a constant figure in the radio trades over the years, has built a similar high profile on Facebook, especially among radio veterans. In July, he took to the platform to announce that The Wow Factor had been forced to geofence its stream again. It was distressing news for the station’s following, but also for advocates of streaming overall — a station worth hearing outside its market and with a good user experience (short stopsets and no ad substitution) was a victim of its own success. There are a lot of stations playing the ‘60s and ‘70s oldies that weren’t hard to find on the radio in 2001 but are less a part of big-city FM now, even at the megahit level. No two stations sound like each other. Certainly, Sebastian’s production style and the presence of more ‘70s Classic Rock makes KOAI different. But if you need something to stream outside Arizona in the meantime, there are choices for that music, including another surprise recent ratings winner. We took a First Listen to the Wow Factor at its launch, then returned to it several times in the last year. For those unable to hear the station, here’s a Fresh Listen. But if it’s something to listen to, not reading material, that you’re looking for, we’ve also got three more takes on the ‘60s/’70s blend. (It’s not meant to be a definitive list; see the comments below.) The Wow Factor’s imaging has always been part of its appeal. I wrote early on that the unique blend reflected Sebastian’s radio journey. He’s flipped that now; one sweeper declares, “This is your personal music history.” Another comes out and calls The Wow Factor “the perfect boomer station.” When we listened, KOAI was giving away tickets for the upcoming Doobie Brothers reunion tour as well as a concert getaway to see the Cirque du Soleil Beatles Love show in Las Vegas. When I wrote about the station last year, I mentioned a segue between “Baba O’Riley” and “Baby I’m-a Want You.” This year, the transition was from that Bread song into the Who’s “I Can See for Miles.” It’s worth noting that I got a chance to see how that audio looked in the Audacity editing program. The volume between the two songs and the sweeper that separated them remained even throughout — you wouldn’t have known that there were three different elements. I don’t write about processing expertly, but even that cursory look showed its intended role in making a broad mix sonically compatible. Here’s The Wow Factor at 7 a.m., October 6: Gerry Rafferty, “Right Down the Line” 5th Dimension, “One Less Bell to Answer” Doobie Brothers, “Listen to the Music” Bread, “Baby I’m-a Want You” Who, “I Can See for Miles” Carly Simon, “Nobody Does It Better” Ringo Starr, “Photograph” Classics IV, “Spooky” James Taylor, “Fire and Rain” Free, “All Right Now” Tommy James & the Shondells, “Crystal Blue Persuasion” Steely Dan, “Hey Nineteen” Cat Stevens, “Peace Train” Huey Lewis & the News, “Heart and Soul” Eagles, “Desperado” Grass Roots, “Let’s Live for Today” Dire Straits, “Money for Nothing” The good news about mid-‘60s-to-late-‘70s/early-‘80s hits is that there are plenty of choices on radio’s endless dial. Whenever I write about any station in that space, there are always plenty of other reader suggestions. In June, I wrote about “Oldies XL,” my new grouping for those stations that cheerfully went beyond the safelist as it now exists at Classic Hits radio.* Unlike the small-market Rhode Island station I wrote about, “Wow Factor” has pretty much settled on the hits —songs that tested well with audiences at some point, even if newer-leaning Classic Hits stations have moved beyond them. Of the three stations here, two are relatively hit-driven. One has some “oh wow” component. Two are hosted and have a “classic radio” feel. They’re all stations that a former “Wow Factor” streamer might enjoy. WECK (Big WECK) Buffalo, N.Y. WECK has been a “local radio strikes back” success story, currently getting a 3.3 share 12-plus with a mix of an AM home base and FM translators. Market veteran Roger Christian does middays; former WMSX PD Joe Chile just returned to the station for afternoons. Especially after its recent rebranding as “Big WECK,” the station is a particularly good choice if what you miss is the Oldies format as it successfully existed in the early ‘00s. Here’s WECK around 4:15 p.m., October 12: Four Seasons, “Who Loves You” Van Morrison, “Brown Eyed Girl” Monkees, “Daydream Believer” Stevie Wonder, “Living for the City” Sam Cooke, “Only Sixteen” Isley Brothers, “This Old Heart of Mine” Strawberry Alarm Clock, “Incense and Peppermints” Jay & the Americans, “Come a Little Bit Closer” Miracles, “The Tracks of My Tears” Rascals, “How Can I Be Sure” Beatles, “Eight Days a Week” Ad Libs, “The Boy From New York City” Blood, Sweat & Tears, “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy” WDJO Cincinnati “Cincinnati’s Oldies Network” has elements of both that market’s WSAI (Real Oldies 1530), whose powerhouse signal made it one of the most-heard pre-Beatles Oldies formats in the early ‘00s, and earlier versions of Classic Hits WGRR, especially now that Dangerous Dan Allen is hosting Saturday night’s “Dial a Hit.” (I asked Allen to play this local hit that I’ve written about, and he did.) Like WECK, WDJO is oldies-radio-as-you-remember-it, but with a little more of a ‘70s component and, when I heard it on October 12, more “oh wow” songs. Here’s the station around 5:15 p.m.: Millie Small, “My Boy Lollipop” Miracles, “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me” B.W. Stevenson, “My Maria” Simon & Garfunkel, “Scarborough Fair/Canticle” Raspberries, “Go All the Way” War, “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” Beatles, “Day Tripper” Chase, “Get It On” Buckinghams, “Susan” Chairmen of the Board, “Give Me Just a Little More Time” Gerry Rafferty, “Right Down the Line” Association, “Windy” Mouth & MacNeal, “How Do You Do?” Chris Montez, “Let’s Dance” KONO-AM San Antonio Cox’s KONO-FM is worth a listen, too. It has been successful with a Classic Hits mix that is both more rhythmic and more pop than many of its counterparts. It’s only hosted in mornings, making it less of a throwback than the other two (but also possibly the best choice if what you like about Wow Factor is being music-intensive). Here’s the AM around 8 p.m. on Oct. 12: Temptations, “I Wish It Would Rain” Alive ‘N Kickin’, “Tighter, Tighter” American Breed, “Bend Me, Shape Me” Jim Croce, “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” George Harrison, “My Sweet Lord” Moments, “Love on a Two-Way Street” Byrds, “Turn! Turn! Turn!” Brownsville Station, “Smokin’ in the Boys’ Room” Jimmy Ruffin, “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted” Three Dog Night, “Celebrate” Paul McCartney & Wings, “Band on the Run” Tommy James & the Shondells, “Mony Mony” Eagles, “Take It Easy” B.J. Thomas, “Hooked on a Feeling” Skylark, “Wildflower” Four Tops, “Standing in the Shadows of Love” Rod Stewart, “Maggie May” more
