Happy Friday guys!

I am so glad Friday is finally, here, I’ve been so busy with lots of stuff, and there’s also a little bit of international football to be watching too 😉 This week’s must have menswear has a bit of a summer vibe, as it should, we’re into June!

Polo Sport Limited Edition Denim & Silver Collection Bringing Back 90’s Style

Monday, 3rd June, 2019

Polo Sport 90's style is back with the silver collection and denim collection

As you’ll know if you’re into style and fashion, or you just read this blog, 90’s style trends have made a come back in recent years. Of course you know I like them, and I’ve featured them so comprehensively here for the past few years. We’ve seen the heavy hitters such as Kappa, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, but one name has been missing. Until now.

Ralph Lauren has launched two limited edition capsule collections from the Polo Sport line, steeped in 90’s nostalgic goodness. These two collections are named the denim collection, and the silver collection.

However these do come at a cost, which I will get into below.

Dip Dye Sweatshirt - My Sunday Style Edit For A Laid Back Look

Happy Sunday guys!

I have to say, I feel pretty well rested and chilled out today! It has started as one of those days which looks gloomy, but if you go outside it’s really warm. I might not get another chance to wear my dip dye sweatshirt again, so I’ve decided to pull it on since it’s a relaxed kind of day.

Last night was pretty good, there was football, boxing and music, aka my song of the summer which I will listen to at least once a day…More on that below

The 10 Best Men’s Fragrances For The Summer In 2019

The Best Men's Summer Fragrances This Year

There’s no secret that Summer is my favourite season, I love it for so many reasons; There’s so much fashion out there for the Summer which I love, you can be as bright and colourful as you like with your clothing and style options, there’s the weather, which is sometimes sunny and at least a bit warmer 😉 and of course Summer football with the Euros or World Cup at least every other year.

Getting your scent right for the summer is possibly more important that other seasons, as everyone is out and there’s probably more socialising going on in the Summer than other seasons, as everyone wants to come out and play. There’s everything from the Summer BBQ to nights out and holidays abroad, so picking out the right fragrance is crucial.

I always separate my scents into seasons and times; Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter, as well as night or day. Autumn and Winter scents are all about the dark, musky, warming scents, ouds and woods play a big part. When it comes to Spring, and more importantly for this guide, Summer, it comes down to citrus, floral and fresh styles of scents, which can be pungent but subtle and not overpowering.

Here are my favourite Summer colognes which any guy can wear.

Michael 84 Music Playlist: May 2019

The Michael 84 Playlist

Can you believe that the Summer is here! I’m still waiting for that big Summer track to drop, and I haven’t heard any so far. That being said, I’ve been listening to some good music in the past month, and it’s good to see some that made my playlist in early April went on to do pretty well.

I am kind of referring to Vossi Bop from Stormzy, which I liked the first time I heard it, and went straight to number 1 in the UK. The charts doesn’t really make much difference these days, it’s definitely not what it used to be, but it’s still cool that it did get there.

Along with that I kind of like the new Ellie Goulding track, Sixteen, and along with that I’ve been listening to a lot of the same stuff as last month. The Aitana track has been getting a lot of play, it’s a really cool easy listening track, but you probably don’t hear Telefóno much in the UK.

I have also been listening to Late Night Feelings from Mark Ronson and Lykke Li too, one of my most listened to songs of this month for sure.

I think for my next playlists in June, July and August, I am going to focus on the biggest and best Summer bangers of all time, and split them up in 3 playlists (one for each month). So you can expect to see some old tunes, all time classics and songs to take you back to the Summers from the 90’s to more recent years.

But until then, here’s my playlist in full for May.
