The last thing you want to worry about in the gym is what you’re wearing. We’re of the feeling that if your kit allows you to perform to the best of your ability then it shouldn’t matter whether you look like a 70s PE teacher or a state of the art gym-fluencer, as long as you get the work done. There are, however, some notable exceptions to that rule that need addressing. Read on, and if you know someone guilty of any of these fitness fashion crimes, do the right thing and tell them. We get it.
White might be the most versatile shirt colour you can buy but it is also the hardest to keep clean, especially if you’re wearing one every day of the week. To help your white shirts forge a distinguished career rather than a temporary contract we spoke to Philip Start, the man behind tailoring brand Mr Start, for his advice. Known for his contemporary take on tailoring and menswear, Mr Start's shirts are among the best money can buy. Here's how to keep your white shirts clean.
Gentlemen, it's time to come clean. Do you wash your legs in the shower? Our (so called) Grooming Editor —and this thread on Reddit— has posited that it’s simply not necessary. “I wash my hair, arm pits, groin and feet in that order. Obviously if they're actually muddy or dirty I'll wash them but otherwise I just let the water from the shower clean them.”Since airing his dirty secret, debate has raged in the office. Some of our staff are ardent leg washers, some less so.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
