Men's style at comic book convention usually means guys walking around in meticulously assembled Boba Fett rigs, not off-the-runway designer gear. It's a place where a flex comes in the form of a cardboard cyborg fit. And while we're all for the zombies, Trekkies, and Marvel heroes (fine, DC, if that's your thing) roaming the halls—and never not impressed by the planning that goes into some of these cosplay kits—seeing an IRL well-dressed guy isn't usually the norm.
If you're a regular guy, your life probably doesn't afford you that many opportunities to go nuts with color and pattern. But everyone needs to let loose some times, sartorially speaking. That is, after all, what summer is for, because, when else will you find your local bars and backyard BBQs full of dudes wearing boldly printed Hawaiian shirts?
There's never been a better time to do some crazy shit to your hair—just ask Sam Worthington. The summer months are when the standard menswear rules ease up a bit, allowing for more color, more print, more, well, everything. So it stands to reason that your summer hair and grooming games should be given a similar amount of leeway. Just check out Avatar star Sam Worthington and his faux hawk. Is this the best haircut for every guy? Hell no.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
