15 men's style hacks that actually work

"Hack." It's a term that has, ironically, become hackneyed. Overused, devoid of all meaning and is, more often than not, outright bananas.

From the ubiquity of "life hacks" to ones hooked around beauty, creativity or even your own psychology, the word has become an internet staple - fuelling countless pages of the internet, for no real purpose other than to steal a few clicks.

Among a list for "40 Life Hacks That Will Change Your Life", an actual adult human recommends you place your hard earned cash in a sanitary bag ("no one will steal it!"), use your shoe as a cupholder and trumpets toilet roll cardboard as both a seed pot and iPhone speaker.

And yet, should you be brave enough to sieve through the abject lunacy, sometimes therein lies gold.

Granted, the following style tips probably won't "CHANGE YOUR LIFE", yet they might one day prove useful. Plus you'll never look at vodka, or your forearm, the same way again.
