This Week's Must Have Menswear - 3rd May 2019

Happy Friday!

It’s pay weekend for many, and we also have a long weekend with the Bank Holiday on Monday, so lots to look forward to already. For this week’s must have menswear, I’ve included some pieces which will get you through the cold and rainy season, along with pieces fit for Summer, and also thrown in a bit of a wild card at the end, which is something that caught my eye.

So here is this week’s fashion Friday five in full.

This Week's Must Have Menswear - 26th April 2019

Happy Friday!

The good news is that this week was a much, much shorter one with the Bank Holiday. The bad news is that after our weekend of sunshine and unexpected heat, the gloomy April weather is here with the rain and cold it brings. With that said, for this week’s must have menswear I have included a few pieces to keep you warm for this Spring, along with some other pieces which will get you into the Summer and look stylish for until late Autumn.

Here’s this week’s fashion Friday five.

Happy Good Friday!

Who’s in a good mood? The sun is shining, and we have a massive 4 day weekend! It is still Friday, so it’s time once again to look at what’s hot in fashion in this week’s must have menswear, Fashion Friday.

There are still some serious 90’s vibes out there, with brands and labels coming up with some really cool retro designs which I love. There’s also plenty of sales going on, so I have included some items from the sales, as well as some newer pieces which have just got released this week. This includes sale pieces from End and Levi’s, and fresh picks from Selfridges and Tommy Hilfiger.

Here’s this week’s must have menswear in full, and where you can pick up these pieces.

Must Have Menswear This Week: 12th April 2019

Happy Friday! It’s the end of the week, so it’s time for another fashion Friday, and the must have menswear which I’ve found this week

This week’s must have menswear was a tough one to pick, as there’s been a couple of new pieces of clothing I like, but also, there’s still a lot of mid season sales going on right now. One of the best has to be at End. and I’ve picked out a couple of pieces from there. There’s too many good pieces of clothing from the End. sale to feature here, and I may do a dedicated guide next week, but I recommend checking it out for yourself, there’s a lot to take a look at.

Must Have Menswear - Mid Season Sale Special - 5th April 2019

Happy Friday!

For this week’s must have menswear, I have decided to pick out the best of the mid season sale items! It’s usually a Fashion Friday Five, but for this week, I’ve sneeked in an additional item, because I couldn’t decide which one I would drop.

How crazy has the weather been thought? Snow in April? It’s not the first time, but it’s strange since we’ve had some really decent weather a few weeks ago. I’ve kept in mind that with this week’s guide, and picked out clothing for the colder and more rainy days and nights we’ve seen so far in April.

In this week’s edition, there’s a stand out denim jacket, a chilled out sweatshirt, smart shirt perfect for Spring, and since the weather is picking up, a couple of T-shirts.

Here they are…

The Must Have Menswear This Week - 22nd February 2019

Happy Friday guys!

So I’ve been wanting to bring back an old feature for a while, and it sometimes comes and goes, but hopefully I’ll resurrect this properly, I’m talking about my Friday Fashion picks! If you missed it, years back I did a round up of my favourite menswear which is fairly new, if not brand new, and did this for a while. I haven’t done any for a while, but I think it’s the time to bring it back, so I can showcase lots of the new clothing which you can get right now.

My Last Ever Cheap Monday Jeans

My Last Ever Pair Of Cheap Monday Jeans as the brand goes

It’s such a sad time, I’ve got my last ever Cheap Monday jeans.

As you might have read here the other week, Cheap Monday is no more. The brand is being discontinued, so when the upcoming season is finished, there’ll be no more. This is sad for me because I love the brand, they make some great jeans and other clothing, and it’s generally a good high street fashion brand.

It’s one of those clothing labels which I’ve written about since almost the start of this blog, and continued to do so over the years…It feels like just yesterday, however it’s all came to an end. I had to get myself one last pair of denim before I was unable to, so I got my favourite wash in my favourite fit.

Going All Black: Nudie Jeans And No Nationality 07 From END

Nudie Jeans And No Nationality From End Clothing

Hey guys!

Happy Monday to you. I’ve got a couple of things still to write about which I’ve got from the January sales, and first up is a couple of things I got from END.

When it comes to style if you’re stuck a lot of people will say, when in doubt, go black, and that’s what I’ve done in my all black choices.

First up is a NN07 No Nationality T Shirt. As you’ll probably know if you’re a regular reader, I love Scandinavian style, it’s become popular in recent times but I’ve been a real lover of it along with the fashion and the brands for a long time.

I’ve featured NN07 aka No Nationality a few times on the blog before, but this is my first piece I’ve picked up. It’s one of their minimal and simple tees, with the branding to the front.

The T-shirt itself is made from Pima cotton, which you’ll know if you’ve read my T-shirt guide is a really soft type of cotton. The fit is also good, and there’s no doubt it will feature in an outfit sometime in the future which you’ll see here.

Is there anything I can say about Nudie Jeans which I’ve never said already? The thing about denim is this; I have a huge collection of jeans, the vast majority are high end and top quality, and it’s got kind of crazy.

I sort of decided that I’d try limit myself to 1 pair of high end denim (or any jeans) a year, which I’ve already broke since I got my Kenzo jeans too.

I’ve already got a pair of black selvedge from Nudie, when are incredible quality and have stood the test of time like I thought they would. I usually save these for going out for an occasion, so I wanted to try more black jeans outfits for everyday wear, and of course Nudie was the brand to go for.

I know the fit, I know they’re quality, and since it was the sale, it was a really good price. I got these cold wash black jeans, they’re the Grim Tim fit which is my preferred fit. If you’re unfamiliar, they’re a slim leg with a button fly, so in terms of style they’re exactly the jeans I want.

Last year I got a pair of Selvedge dry denim indigo high end jeans from them, with these being similar but black, and much softer denim which is what I wanted this time round.

My First Pair Of Premium Shoes – Loake 1880 Aldwych Oxford

Tuesday, 8th January, 2019

Loake 1880 Aldwych Shoe Review

It’s a new year, and for me, that means new shoes. When it comes to shoes I now have quite a collection, and have really got into shoes in recent years. I love all of the shoes I own, they are all from great high street brands and have served me proud.

However for this year, I decided to treat myself, and go for something more high end, and went for the Aldwych shoes from the Loake 1880 range.

When it comes to a gentleman’s style, I think there’s a few essentials a guy should have. There’s a good watch, a well-fitted suit, a good winter coat and then there’s a few pairs of shoes you need.

This is my first foray into premium footwear, so I have been looking around for quite a few months. I’ve been soaking in all the information, checking out all the brands, styles and shoemakers out there, and one of the stand out decided on getting a pair of Loake shoes.
