Most Stylish Football Managers In The Premier League 2017

The best dressed English Premier League Managers

From tracksuit managers to the suited and booted, there’s a lot of style and fashion in the dugout and on the touchline these days. The Premier League 2016-17 season is here, and there’s been some stylish management movements, with José Mourinho going to Man United, Pep Guardiola going to Man City and Antonio Conte heading up things at Chelsea, it seems like almost every stylish manager is in the Premier League (with a few exceptions).

So in no particular order, here’s the best dressed managers in the Premier League, and what I love about their style.

Aloha!

What are your thought on Hawaiian shirts? Just a gimmick, or are these loud shirts actually stylish?

If you’re looking for a men’s fashion trend which may not be your usual style, the Hawaiian shirt could be something to consider to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

Horni Underwear To Save The Rhinos

Horni Underwear Save The Rhinos

Happy Friday!

A few weeks ago a brand got in touch with me to let me know about their latest line of Underwear, Horni Underwear. Since I have somewhat of an obsession with good quality underwear, I had to check out a pair which they sent over.

Horni is a brand which puts emphasis on being premium and ethical, and use production, manufacturing and packaging from companies who meet a high international level of eco-friendly certification. Not only that, they’re also partners with Save The Rhino, donating at least 10% of their pre-tax profits to rhino conservation initiatives. The brand is new, and launched on 27th April at London Zoo with three different styles of underwear; Boxer brief, Hipster trunk and Classic brief. My personal choice is the boxer-brief, and I was able to get my hands on a pair and check out the quality for myself.

I got a black pair and I have to say they’re really nice. The fit is good and the fabric is nice and soft. The waistband comes with the Horni trademark logo and text which is a rubberised HD print, with a silicone tab. The inside comes with the details printed rather than a label, which enhances the comfort of the boxers.

You can check out Horni here on their site. These boxer-briefs comes in at £20 each with four different patterns available.

Diadora x Roberto Baggio Collection – World Cup 94

Diadora x Roberto Baggio WC94 Collection

How incredible is this!

If you are a fan of football and grew up watching it in the early to mid 90’s you’ll know how good Italian football was, and all the legendary players they had. Serie A was the league to play in back then, and the Italian national team had some superstars including Roberto Baggio. Italia ’90 was a great World Cup which West Germany won, but four years later at USA 94 Italy got to the final where they were beaten by Brazil on penalties. One of the most memorable players of the tournament was Roberto Baggio, who sadly missed the crucial penalty kick for Italy.

Diadora has teamed up with Roberto Baggio and released this tiny capsule collection, the Diadora x Roberto Baggio collection which includes these three pieces, all of which I really like. There’s a blue T-shirt which is similar to that of what Italy were wearing during the World Cup as their home shirt. There’s a crew neck sweatshirt in navy blue with the Italia pattern on, but my favourite piece from the collection is the jacket.

Roberto Baggio x Diadora Jacket, T-Shirt and Sweatshirt

The track jacket is primarily white with navy blue detailing on the arms, and the front has the iconic 90’s style pattern with blue, green and red. These are the same design of jackets which Italy wore at the World Cup before the games, part of the presentation tracksuit. These are slightly modified, with a slightly different badge, and the Roberto Baggio signature printed on the back in gold.

This is a Made In Italy collection, is strictly limited and you’ll be lucky to find any right now. The collection went on sale on Saturday 15th July, only sold in selected shops and has sold out in most places. The T-shirt comes in at £59, sweatshirt £89 and infamous jacket £115.

As for as iconic clothing turned into street wear I think this has been very well done, and it’s just a shame that it’s in such limited quantities. What do you think of these pieces?

Air Max 1 Jewel Premium – University Blue & Crown Jewel

Air Max 1 University Blue

Tomorrow sees the launch of a couple of pairs of Air Max 1 Premium trainers from Nike, and they look pretty good!

When I was going for my white pair of trainers I actually ordered the Jewel in black diamond, then changed my mind and cancelled, and ended up getting the Air Max 1 Ultra 2.0 in triple white. Nike are continuing to release the jewel trainers, this time round with two colourways, one being called the Crown Jewel, and the other, which has caught my eye in particular, in University Blue.

It is the Summer so perfect time to get yourself a pair of white trainers, and now Nike have given us all two more options when it comes to getting some clean cut kicks to wear for this season. Both are white as a base, but the University Blue just looks epic. The light blue colour is set off just right, and will work well if you want some white sneakers but don’t want the striking bright vibes you can get from an all white pair. They come with the trademark jewel swoosh to the side, and the splashes of blue really make these trainers stand out.

As with all the jewel range, these have premium leather uppers, and come with a translucent outsole, keeping the whole look nice and clean, and the standard large Nike swoosh logo on the bottom of the sole which is quite eye catching.

Air Max 1 Crown Jewel

The other trainer is what they’re calling the Crown Jewel. This comes in the same premium white upper, but the light blue is replaced with black, which does look really nice. I do like this colourway too, but I think the blue edges it as it’s more creative and original, even though I love monochrome black and white aesthetics, I do like a splash of colour to add to it.

You’ll be able to pick both of these up from tomorrow at 07:59 at Nike.com priced at £104.95. I would imagine these will go pretty fast, trainers seem to go quickly on the Nike site. Check them out here.

What do you think of these new colourways from Nike?

Men’s Summer Fashion Tips – Sweat Shorts [UPDATED 2017]

mens-sweat-shorts-1

UPDATED FOR 2017

Sweatpants have been thought of for a long time as super casual, and of course they can be worn for a laid back and chilled out style. However more recently we’ve seen a resurgence in sport luxe fashion, with higher end menswear brands showcasing their take on the trends, with casual tops and bottoms including more stylish, better cut sweat pants and joggers. From that comes the summer trend of sweat shorts, and it’s something I really like and have embraced.

You may remember I got a few pair of sweat shorts from H&M a short while ago, and I really like them. At only £8 a pair you can’t go wrong, and they are good quality with a really nice fit. The summer season is here, and other fashion labels and brands have an array of sweat shorts ready for you to buy, in a range of colours and styles.

Smart Styling On A Budget: French Connection Suit

MandM Style With French Connection Suit

Hey guys!

For my outfit of the week I have gone for a smarter look, with this suit by French Connection. I really like the smarter look, jackets and blazers are always a good thing to have, you can dress them up in a full suit for a smart look, or dress them down with a nice plain tee and pair of jeans to create a smart casual look. As I’ve got older I’ve expanded my suit collection, and have the key colours covered; Black, dark blue and grey, as well as some contemporary toned down patterned options.

MandM Direct have up to 75% off RRP 365 days a year, and being one of the leaders in discounted men’s fashion challenged me to find some smart style on a budget. I know a lot of guys think that a good suit always costs the Earth, but you can get very decent suits for affordable prices such as this one, and if you only need it for the odd occasion, it makes sense not to spend a small fortune.

Men’s Denim Jacket Style Guide & Tips

Men's Denim Jacket Guide For Summer

My Denim Jackets: All Saints In Grey | !Solid In Rust | Cheap Monday In Black

One trend I really love for Summer, and for Spring and even Autumn for that matter is the denim jacket. When thinking about denim jackets, it’s definitely more of a warm weather item of clothing, which means it’s time to put away the overcoats and Winter Coats, and pair up some of your warm weather wardrobe with this jacket style when it gets a bit chilly, or when you just want to style up an outfit.

It can be a bit of a trend for some, especially something like double denim which is a look which has a love/hate tag to it, but there’s a few things you can do to avoid this kind of look, or embrace it if that’s your thing. I’m going to talk about everything to do with jean jackets, from how to style them to what to wear with them, including footwear and other clothing.

Are you ready? Let’s Go!
