Men’s Style Question: Should Your Belt Match Your Shoes?

Wednesday, 14th November, 2018

Should You Match Your Belt With Your Shoes?

This is one of those questions which I’ve been asked a couple of times, and if you ask people or the Internet, you’re likely to get different answers. Some will be strict high class fashion etiquette, and some will be a more informal approach.

Should your belt match your shoes?

The answer is yes, and no. For me, it depends on the colour shoes you’re wearing. You should start with the shoes as a base point, and then match your belt and any other leather accessories to that.

To put it simply, brown shoes with a brown belt, and black shoes with a black belt. The more formal the occasion, the more strict this rule becomes. Wearing a black suit with some black Oxfords will look dapper, but wrapping a tan belt around it will loose you some serious style points.

Atmos x Nike Air Max2 Light & Miami Vice Trainers

So I’ve not featured any Nike Air Max on the blog for quite a while, but in the space of a couple of days, I saw 2 pair which really stood out, and I love them both. The Atmos x Air Max2 Light and the Air Max Plus 97 Miami Vice.

First up I’ll have to talk about the Atmos x Air Max2 Light. They are possibly the most colourful Air Max I’ve seen, and they are one of those designs which you’re either going to really hate or love. I have to say, I do love them!

The House Bunny For Film Night - Review

For Film Night I was browsing around Amazon Prime as I usually do, and came across House Bunny, which kind of seemed familiar. It was a film from back in 2008, and I thought that I’d seen trailers of this a while ago, and thought it could have been good. I wanted to watch something light and funny, so I decided to see what it was all about, and gave it a watch.

Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Now Men’s Fragrance For 2018 [Review]

Tuesday, 6th November, 2018

Tommy Now by Tommy Hilfiger Fragrance Review

Tommy Hilfiger is back with a new fragrance for men, introducing Tommy Now. Celebrating the power of now, as the new generation embraces change with positivity, optimism and refreshing style.

My journey with Tommy Hilfiger fragrances is a good one, as is many of my generation. The original Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger was released in 1994, and as a guy growing up in the late 90’s and 00’s, this was one of my signature scents. It was so easy to wear, it always smelled good and will always live on as one of my classic fragrances I owned.

Tommy Now is a new fragrance for 2018, with it’s own unique style. First I have to talk about the bottle.

But what if you don’t like wool? Can you get a long sleeve, roll neck T Shirt?

Yes, you can!

Men’s Fashion Tips – Winter Coat & Jacket Buying Guide

Wearing My Canada Goose Jacket - The Perfect Coat For Winter This Year

UPDATED FOR 2018

Brrr it’s getting cold in ‘ere! Winter is here, or coming, depending on where in the world you live and when you’re reading this post 😉 One way or another you’ll be experiencing the depths of winter sometime soon, so you’ll need a winter coat or jacket to get you through a few horrible months of the miserable British winter weather.

Buying a good winter coat is not only important for the first year you purchase it, but it can become a good investment piece, lasting a good few winters before you need to splash out and buy another.

With that said, investing in a good jacket is not only worth it because you’ll be getting much better quality which will be noticeable when you wear it, as well as it lasting longer than a cheap and cheerful coat.
