Lots of people like to do various things, and if you’re heading for a party, then it could be the perfect time to look your best, and dress up for the occasion. It doesn’t always have to be that way, and will depend on what you’re actually doing, and where you plan on going for New Years Eve. What you wear may be the same time of style as what to wear for your Christmas Party, and not going to include your best Christmas jumpers, so looking the part is key.

The Best Christmas Jumpers This Year

best-mens-christmas-jumpers-2016-1

It’s that time of the year again, it’s time for Christmas Jumpers!

Whether you love them or hate them, you’ll have an opinion on Christmas Jumpers. I’ve loved them over the past few years, and they’ve really taken off and increased in popularity among most people. You have to have at least one jumper, whether it’s just for a one off occasion, or you want to wear them throughout the festive period, it’s a really easy way to get into the Christmas spirit. It also doesn’t have to be expensive, with some options coming in at well under £20, with super expensive ones with cashmere over £100; Not that you’ll find those in this guide!

You can check out my older guides from Christmas past in the 2016, 2015 and 2014 guide, but this is all about 2017, and so here’s my guide and tips for this year!

What Day Is Christmas Jumper Day?

Christmas Jumper Day is Friday 15th December 2017, where you can not only wear a cheesy novelty jumper, but also you can donate to Save The Children if you want to show your support to the charity.

There’s plenty to choose from, here are my favourites from different brands and shops; From cheap budget to high street,  there’s one for everyone 🙂

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

Canada Goose Jackets For Winter

UPDATED FOR 2017

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.

MR. P By MR Porter Arrives With Debut Capsule Collection

MR P. Debut Collection From MR Porter

Several weeks back I heard about something new brewing at MR. Porter, it was a new collection not only being sold by the luxury online retailer, but also designed by them. This is MR P., and it officially launched online yesterday.

You probably don’t need me to tell you about MR. Porter; Which is one of the homes to rare, sought after, expensive or luxury clothing labels in menswear, where you can find everything from Balenciaga to Vetements to Acne Studios, as well as street wear premium labels such as Common Projects, Adidas Originals and Scandi style from brands like No Nationality. The campaign said that it would be a range of clothes that they have themselves always wanted, stylish and understated, affordable but made to the highest standard. Here’s my picks from the 50+ capsule collection.

Shirt Stays From 2Clicks – the Dapper Shirt Stay

Dapper Shirt Stays

We’ve all experienced this problem before: You’re feeling great in your favourite shirt, but as you’re wearing it and moving around, it becomes more and more loose, and finally that smart tucked in shirt has become un-tucked, and it’s not looking as smart as it once did. Having a perfect fitted tailored shirt can go a long way to addressing this problem, but that can be expensive, and what about the great shirts you already own? Shirt Stays from 2Clicks could be the answer you’re looking for.

How They Work

The shirt stay has been worn by military personnel, with a range of different styles and take on the concept being used from other brands. The Dapper Shirt Stay design is a Y-shaped style, with two stays connecting the bottom of the sides of the shirt being attached to your socks with clips. The straps are made from polyester and elastodinene and are fully adjustable, with all three points able to be adjusted. The clips are made from metal for durability, with quality sliders along with the joint being made of leather. The design keeps your socks up and your shirt down, neatly tucked into your trousers, just like it’s supposed to be. They work in a similar way to men’s braces, but rather than keeping your trousers up, these keep your shirt down.

Wearing The Shirt Stay

Wearing shirt stays will be strange at first, and you’ll need to get used to wearing them, but they’re something which you can wear on that occasion you really want to look your best without the expense of getting a tailored fitted shirt. Whether that’s at a wedding or the all important job interview where first impression count, they’re something you can consider to keep your shirt in perfect place.

About 2Clicks

2 Clicks are a small British run family business offering great customer service, with all products designed in the UK. The Dapper Shirt Stay come in a metal presentation tin, and you can get yours for £20 per pair on Amazon here.

Style Of The Week: New Navy Jaeger Suit

Michael 84 New Jaeger Suit

Hey guys!

I have a few suits…In fact I probably have too many if I’m completely honest, considering I don’t wear a full suit all too often (I love just a blazer or jacket though), I’d say that I possibly have more than I need. I’ve got all the staple colours covered; That’s grey, black and blue. When it comes to blue, I think we can all say that it’s probably the best colour for a suit, and in particular I prefer the darkest of blues, navy, or if you can find something available, midnight blue. I already own a blue suit, It is navy but it’s kind of light, and I have a marled navy one which is pretty decent too. But the one I’ve been contemplating getting is a really dark navy suit. So finally, I’ve added that to my collection.

prince + pete: Sayonara Single Sock Syndrome

Pete + Prince Socks

As you’ll know from reading my blog over the past year or so, I’ve got a new found love for socks. Socks have always been an essential item, but recently they’ve taken on a whole new persona for themselves. No longer are they that boring item which you don’t really care about but buy out of necessity, but a stylish item of it’s own to team up with the rest of your outfit. I have got on board with the sock trend, and have quite a few pairs from different brands, but there’s a new brand which is doing something I’ve not seen before, that’s prince + pete.

Something we all have to deal with is that missing sock. Where do they go? I don’t really understand how I can lose a sock from the washing basket to the washing machine for it to never be seen again. I do have a couple of single socks which I do actually keep, in the hope that I’ll find the other which makes up the pair.

prince + pete have developed colour collections which have coordinating designs, and are sold in singles, yes, you can buy just one sock. The idea is that all the socks from each colour collection can be paired up, giving more fashionable choices and allowing collections to be built up, one sock at a time.

“Men are limited in the ways they can express a sense of style. So, I wanted to create a sock brand that makes it easy for the average guy to be fashionable, with great designs that are well-made and easily coordinated,” said Donna Pappalardo, Founder of prince + pete.

There’s two ways which you can purchase the socks; A monthly subscription service called S-Club which you can join and get three socks delivered to your door per month, a matching pair and a single complimentary sock. This costs $36/month with free delivery, with an option to cancel the service at any time. You can also get a starter pack of 9 socks, this includes 4 pairs and 1 complimentary sock to get you going, which comes in at $96.

Prince + Pete Sock Collection

The socks are made from a super soft bamboo, with an arch support, extra cushioned bottom, smooth seamless toe and are a perfect crew length. The collections which are currently available are Bleeker, Hudson, Ludlow, Melrose, Mercer and Worth.

I think that this is a really good unique idea, with some great sock colours and patterns available. You can see more from prince + pete at their site here, and check out the video below which gives you all the information you need in less than a minute.
