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.

What Is Raw Denim? A Beginners Guide

Today’s style question is all about a man’s essential piece of clothing, jeans, but more particularly, a particular pair. What is raw denim? It’s a question which some people have asked, as they’ve seen or heard this term, but don’t know what it means.

For the purpose of this guide we’ll say there’s two different types of denim; Raw denim, which is sometimes called dry denim, and washed denim. These two terms are quite self explanatory, with raw denim being unwashed and washed being, well washed. There is of course Selvedge denim, which can be raw or washed, this is to do with the finish of the denim, rather than whether it’s washed or raw.

Fashion Question: Can Men Wear Women’s Jeans

Today’s Fashion Question: Can Men Wear Women’s Jeans?

The short Answer: My advice is no, not women’s jeans, but skinny jeans…Yes. Read more below.

There’s been a rise and rise of men wearing women’s jeans, in fact it’s been so much of a trend that a lot of menswear brands and clothing labels have picked up on this and started doing slimmer and slimmer fitting jeans. Wearing skinny jeans or slim jeans which have been designed for men is fine, but those manufactured for women is not recommended. There’s lots of new cuts and styles which are popular today; From slim fit to skinny, and then going down to super skinny jeans, which get the term drainpipe jeans or painted on jeans. Of course they’re not actually painted on, but they’re so tight it would look like they are.
