What To Wear To A 90's Party - Men's Style Guide

Was there a better decade than the 90’s? I don’t think so! It was a time for fun-loving people, the 1990s had so much going for it, the music, pop culture and of course the fashion. Whether you’re planning on throwing a 90’s party or you’re going to one, you might be thinking what outfit to wear. Luckily the trends of the nineties have made a comeback, and the style is as popular as ever.

There was so much style back in the day, and lots of different outfits which were worn in the decade, it really is up to you what you choose to put on, but there’s a couple of different styles you can go for.

For men, the biggest trends in 90s style were: double denim, bright florescent colours, brands and logos, oversized clothing, tracksuits and sports wear. Of course not all of these were worn at once, it really depended on your own personal preference; Whether you were into rave culture, Brit Pop, Grunge, Rock, Football there was a particular trend which you and your friends would be wearing.

Here’s everything you need to know about 90’s trends, and some 90’s outfit ideas for the party.

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 Best Winter Coats You Can Buy In 2018

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.

Happy Socks Advent Calendar For 2018

Tuesday, 16th October, 2018

Happy Socks Advent Calendar 2018

Hey guys!

So I was having a browse around a few days ago and came across this incredible advent calendar…It’s not you usual piece of chocolate a day cardboard kind of thing, it’s the Happy Socks advent calendar, with 24 pairs of socks!

I know it’s crazy to already be talking about advent calendars, it’s only half way through October, there’s 6 weeks or so until December, but when I saw this was already on sale, I had to share it.

As you’ll know from reading the blog, I love socks, and I love Happy Socks, and have so many pair, I couldn’t actually say how many I have, and I’m not going to count them. I can honestly recommend them, apart from the fact that the colours and patterns are so vibrant and cool, the quality is also really good.

Luxury types of calendars have been getting bigger and bigger every year. I’ve seen calendars costing in the hundreds, even some in the thousands for things like high end alcohol, and other high end gifts which you can get in a calendar form.

The tradition remains the same. In this Happy Socks version, you get 24 “doors” which are actually little boxes with red pull tabs, which contain a pair of socks. As with tradition, the boxes are not in numbered order, so you have to look for the correct box for the corresponding day.

This advent calendar of socks costs £149.95, and is available exclusively from John Lewis here. It is expensive, but for an innovative, fun and fancy way of working your way up to Christmas Day, this is such a great idea. Christmas is always a time of socks for guys, it’s the one fashion item that probably every man will get in some form, and now you can get them every day in the run up.
