The Increased Popularity of Men's UGGs

Pick up any popular magazine that features photos of celebrities, and you'll find a picture of a celeb walking about in their UGGs. These shoes and boots became incredibly popular several years ago with the celeb crowd, and that popularity spread like a wave to the average population.

Some women may have started wearing UGGs after seeing their favorite stars pictured in the footwear, but the majority of women started wearing them after experiencing the amazing comfort of UGGs. UGGs have become one of the bestselling brands of shoes and boots.

But UGGs aren't just popular with women - more and more men are realizing that UGGs can be an essential part of their wardrobe. Those same popular magazines now feature pictures of male stars in their UGGs, with Brad Pitt and Justin Timberlake, just to name a few.

It's not hard to figure out how and why so many men have jumped on the UGG bandwagon. UGG boots were said to originally start with Australian sheep shearers (primarily men). Soon, Australian aviators began wearing UGGs to keep their feet warm on long, cold flights. Eventually, UGGs gained even more popular attention when surfers started wearing them in the 1970s. Surfers said there was no better way to warm up than slipping into UGGs after a day of surfing.

Men's UGGs aren't just for movie stars, surfers, or pilots. They are the ideal boot or shoe for anyone that likes to keep their feet warm and comfortable. UGGS feature the finest Merino sheepskin to create soft outer layers of the boot. The interior is made of fine Australian wool. This wool serves to insulate the wearer's foot from cold, while the wool circulates air -keeping the feet cool even if you are in a warmer climate.

Men are turning to UGGs because of the surprising durability of these shoes and boots. UGGs feature reinforced fronts and heel guards. This reinforcement keeps the UGGs in good condition, with little wear and tear on the shoes or boots. These sturdy shoes will last for years and provide the wearer with endless comfort.

Another factor that contributes to the success of UGGs with the male population is the wide variety of styles. While women tend to gravitate towards the short or tall boot, men can choose from boots or shoes. There are boots that are perfect for casual weekend wear, as well as moccasins, and slippers. Nothing is better than kicking around the house in a comfy pair of UGG slippers.

There's no disputing that UGGs are becoming as popular for men as they are for women. With the incredible durability and styling, many men are jumping on the bandwagon to indulge in these incredible boots and shoes.

Bijan - An Accomplished Designer

Bijan, whose full name is Bijan Pakzad, has been a major force in the world of fragrances since 1981 when he developed his first perfume for men. He further drew attention to his product when he offered his perfume in Baccarat crystal flacons that were signed and numbered. As a result, a 6 oz. Bottle of this perfume is now worth approximately $3,000.

After immigrating to the United States from Iran in 1973, Bijan wasted no time getting himself established in the world of fashion and design. In fact, by 1976, he had set up an exclusive boutique on the legendary Rodeo Drive. His store, which could only be visited by appointment, was considered by many to be the most expensive store in the world. Bijan still currently resides in Beverly Hills, though he also has homes in New York, Milan, and Florence.

Today, many of the most powerful men in the world can be seen wearing clothing designed by Bijan. His clients include President Bush, Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sir Anthony Hopkins, President Ronald Regan, Jay Leno, and Prime Minister Tony Blair.

In addition to his clothing, Bijan continues to create fragrances. His current line includes fragrances for both men and women. In both cases, he presents the fragrances in globally patented circular glass flacons that have an open center as well as a dividing web. When the fragrance is half full, the two chambers fill on their own accord by following the scientific principle that liquids seek their own level. His flacons are so intriguing that one is even featured as a permanent exhibit at the Smithsonian Institute.

Bijan has won numerous awards for his efforts. In 1988, his Bijan for Men fragrance won the FiFi award for Most Successful Mens Fragrance from the Fragrance Foundation. His Bijan for Women fragrance took home the Best Womens Fragrance Package award that same year. His Michael Jordan Cologne won Mens Fragrance Star of the Year Specialty/Department Stores in 1997 as well as Best National Advertising Campaign - Mens. He also received the Ig Nobel Prize in chemistry for his DNA fragrance in 1995. He was also included on the International Best Dressed List by Vanity Fair in 1989.
