The Michael 84 Playlist

Where did July go!

We’re into August now, so here’s the music which I’ve been listening to in July.

It looks like this year we won’t get a Summer banger. I have listened to quite a bit new music in the last couple of days to come up with a playlist of fresh new tracks, but I have been listening to some older stuff too, I may post that up at a later date.

Ariana Grande is everywhere at the moment, she’s in every chart, and it feels like every single from the album is getting some air time, along with Cardi B too. I had to feature at least one of their tracks in the playlist, since you can’t really listen to any music without hearing one or both of them in the mainstream.

Here’s my playlist for July.

That leads me on to my T Shirt Tuesday this week, which is this tee from the Hard Rock Cafe in Rome.

What To Wear In The Heat Of The British Summer

Are you sick of the heatwave we’re having in the UK right now? Of course you’re not! We love the sun, but at times it can get uncomfortable, so you want to know what clothes you should wear in the heat, right?

Mango Man Shirts From The Summer Sale

Hey guys!

I hope you had a good weekend, it was another hot one! There’s been a ton of Summer sales on over the past month or so, have you bought anything from them? They’re so hard to resist, so I got a couple of shirts from Mango. I probably have far too many shirts, but I couldn’t resist, and got these two; One a dark navy shirt, the other a more casual buffalo check shirt.

Let me tell you about them…

Rome By Night

Michael84 At The Trevi Fountain In Rome At Night

Happy Friday!

I thought I would do a little flashback Friday for today, and it’s from when I was in Rome…God that was around 6 weeks ago! Who else is feeling in holiday mode? Whenever we have good weather here, it always makes you want to go on holiday, right?

I clocked up a hell of a lot of miles when I was in Rome during the day, and was pretty exhausted on a night, but I had to go out at least one night and see the city in the evening. Since I was central to both the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain, those are the places I went to, and they were quite bustling in the evening.

The 10 Best Men’s Fragrances For The Summer In 2018

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.

Men’s Summer Fashion Tips – Sweat Shorts [UPDATED 2018]

How To Style Sweat Shorts

UPDATED FOR 2018

Are you looking for some casual shorts which are the ultimate in comfort, which you can wear in or out of the house? Sweat Shorts are what you’re probably looking for, and they’re a great choice to wear when the weather gets warm in the Summer.

Sweatpants have been thought of for a long time as super casual, and of course they can be worn for a laid back and chilled out style. However more recently we’ve seen a resurgence in sport luxe fashion, with higher end menswear brands showcasing their take on the trends, with casual tops and bottoms including more stylish, better cut sweat pants and joggers. From that comes the summer trend of sweat shorts, and it’s something I really like and have embraced.

You may remember I got a few pair of sweat shorts from H&M a short while ago, and I really like them. At only £8 a pair you can’t go wrong, and they are good quality with a really nice fit. The summer season is here, and other fashion labels and brands have an array of sweat shorts ready for you to buy, in a range of colours and styles.

Friday, 13th July, 2018

Norwich named top UK City for Men's Style

Norwich has been crowned the most stylish city in the UK for men according to a recent study. Researchers for Just for Men Moustache & Beard surveyed guys across the country, and it was the East Anglian city which came out on top.

It has been found that the lads in Norwich take the most pride and spend the most money on looking good, and they’re not shy about it either, with 33% of them insisting that their city is known for well-dressed, good looking men. They spend as much as £45 a month on hair and wet shaves, in comparison to the guys from Cambridgeshire who only spend £11.
