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.

As the school year is ending, you’ll be gearing up for your prom, so you need to make sure you get your clothing right, it’s time to fix up and look sharp and make sure you’re looking on point for the night. For a girl it’s about a prom dress, quite straight forward, but for a guy the choice is for more varied, and you’ll want to get it right so you not only look good but feel confident in what you’re wearing.

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!

Adidas Originals Campus Shoe For Summer 2017

Adidas Originals Campus Trainers Summer 2017

Adidas Originals have announced the upcoming release of the iconic Campus silhouette for Summer 2017, which sees the shoe that went from Sport to Street in the downtown New York scene. Originals collaborates with Blondey McCoy, Na-Kel Smith, Tavia Bonetti and Tiffany Lighty to celebrate the brave, bold attitude of the Campus shoe in the No Time to Think campaign.

Introduced in 1978, you’ll be able to get the Campus in a few styles and colours, including a textured suede. This comes with a ‘hairy suede’ upper, in either bold aqua or semi solar pink in colour. They have a leather lining with the iconic three stripes also in leather at the middle of the trainer. They have a reinforced toe cap and a rubber outsole, with the Adidas trefoil logo on the heel. These come in at £79.95. Check them out here.

Another option is the same Campus with a pigskin nubuck upper, which is available in dark blue, grey or black, and has a synthetic leather lining. These also come with a rubber outsole, the three stripes in the middle and trefoil logo on the heel. They come in at £69.95. Check them out here.

Overall I really like both of these options, and with the rise and rise of street wear and iconic re-releases and updates, these will be popular by many. Adidas Originals have already brought back the Stan Smith and Superstar silhouettes to name only two, both with success and a huge fan base, and the Campus could go that way too.

The Adidas Original Campus trainers will be available from 15th June 2017 from Adidas here. More pictures below

Bum Bags Are Back! The Summer 2017 Trend

Bum Bags On Trend In 2017

Just when you thought you’d missed out, bum bags are back on trend in 2017!

If you are 25 years old or under, then you can be forgiven if you don’t know what a bum bag is, but if you’re like me, and grew up with 90’s fashion trends, then you’ll know all about them, and probably had one, if not a few.

1960’s Jeans From Levi’s For Summer 2017

Levi's 1960's inspired jeans for Summer

Hey guys!

So Summer is here right now, and if you are looking for something a bit different in your jeans which are perfect for the warmer weather, these are definitely worth a look. They’re a few new pairs of denim from Levi’s.

I saw these a few weeks ago and think they’re brilliant. Levi’s have created four pair of unisex jeans which they’re calling the Crazy Leg 1960’s jeans. They are limited edition and inspired by the 1967 Goldie Horn character on The Laugh In, a popular comedy sketch show in the 1960s.

The first pair features eyelash printed to the front with lips printing as well as classic 60s slogans to the back of the leg. The next features check list slogan prints to the front, with a mock eye test to the back of the jeans. The third pair has Love Trip printed down the front legs in a true 60’s style, with a zipper style print to the back.

If you’ve read my jeans guide you’ll know that for a staple pair of denim you should get something which will last for years to come, and choose something such as Indigo or black which are my favourite colours when it comes to denim. However in the Summer you want something lighter, white jeans are always an option, and a good one at that, but you might want to add some fun and individuality to your look when the sun comes out. If you are looking to inject some retro Summer vibes into your wardrobe, and you are looking for something really unique this season, this is the denim to do that. Each pair come in a cream/off white base colour, with vibrant colourful printing from front to back.

The jeans are £160 each and you can check them out at Levi’s here. Let me know what you think of these 🙂

Waremakers – A Marketplace Curated For The Curious

Waremakers Products

I love companies which produce products that have high craftsmanship, and you can really appreciate the work which has gone into making each individual item. While I think there’s always a place for inexpensive everyday items, sometimes you want to spend that little bit more on something which is going to last a long time.

As you know I love the 90’s trends which have been going for a few years, and one of the biggest clothing brands which has really embraced the retro vibes has been Tommy Hilfiger. They’ve brought back the Tommy Jeans menswear for a reboot last year, not just once, but two mini collections. The Summer is here, and they’ve come back with some colours perfect for the Summer, and keep the classic 90’s style with a summer edge to it.

H&M Summer 2017 Menswear – Michael 84 Edit

H&M linen blazers for Summer

Summer is right around the corner, and the menswear brands have been getting ready for some time, with a lot of brands and labels having their clothing ready to go for Summer! I’ve noticed a few really nice pieces from H&M this year, so here’s my edit from their Summer 2017 Collection part 1; No doubt they’ll be adding more and more as the season progresses.

First of all H&M do a lot of fast fashion, that means pieces are continually being added all the time. It also means that most things are quite inexpensive, so if you’re looking to add one or two pieces to your wardrobe it’s perfect.

Will Jaeger Come Back From Administration?

jaeger-black-shirts-2016-1

It’s a sad time for British fashion, 2 weeks ago Jaeger entered administration, and it’s said that up to 600 jobs could go. Will it be able to be saved?

You’ll know that from reading my blog I have been a fan of Jaeger for quite a while. I have so many shirts and tailored jackets from them, I got not one but two black Jaeger shirts several months ago, and I’ve got lots of knitwear, including some really nice cashmere jumpers from the brand too.

I really like the quality of the clothing, some say it’s not as good as previous, and many of the things aren’t actually made in the UK, but most of the things are of good quality, and easily matches up to what I consider to be it’s main competitors, which are Thomas Pink, Reiss and Ted Baker, especially for shirts. I always call this kind of clothing premium high street, as it’s usually quite a bit more than high street, especially now with fast fashion and the likes of Primark, H&M and the like, but less expensive than the higher end designer labels such as Burberry. However Jaeger used to see itself as that higher end label, but not as high as something you’d expect to find on Savile Row.

Jaeger has already been bought in 2012, and it went through some changes, most notionally the logo, which I actually don’t like, and much prefer the older, more traditional graphic.

Hopefully they will come up with a strategy which will work for the business as well as producing some great clothing.
