Uomo Ermenegildo Zegna Eau De Toilette

When it comes to fragrances by Ermenegildo Zegna, I do have a few. They are always really nice and pleasant scents, so when I got the chance to check out Uomo by Ermenegildo Zegna, I had to give it a shot.

Ermenegildo Zegna is an Italian luxury fashion house, more known for it’s suits than it’s scents. But as mentioned I’ve got a few of their fragrances, and they’re all pretty decent, inoffensive types of scents.

I wondered what Uomo would bring to their collection of scents.

What To Wear To The Races Men

Are you going to the races, but have no ideas what to wear?

Don’t worry, this style guide will make sure you’re looking the part for the big day out.

Gentleman, having a day at the races is not just about putting a few bets on the horses anymore, well, has it ever been?

Fashion at the races is almost more important than the horse racing itself, and has been known to take centre stage.

It doesn’t matter if it’s the first time you’re going, it’s an annual tradition for you and your friends or if you’re a seasoned veteran, this is one event where nailing the style is key.

There’s always been a lot of emphasis on what the ladies are wearing, and who’ll have the best or most outlandish hat, but men’s style is just as important.

Knowing what to wear to the races is important, and you should be as stylish as your female counterpart.

Let the ladies bring the glamour, and the gents bring the style.

It’s time to get suited and booted!

Sunday, 1st March, 2020

Twitter is toxic - 1 Year of not using twitter. What's the difference?

This week back in 2019 I quit Twitter, and it was a long time coming. I wrote a post back then about how Twitter is toxic in my opinion, this was on the back of myself declaring the platform “not the same” in 2016.

So, a year has past, what has changed, does it improve health and lift in general.

Here’s everything which has happened since I stopped using Twitter on 28th February 2019.

How To Wear Joggers – A Men’s Style Guide On Joggers & What To Wear With Them

What To Wear With Joggers - Men's Style And Outfit Guide

If there’s one trend that every guy can jump on right now, it’s the joggers style trend. They’re super comfortable, casual and are definitely fashionable right now.

Of course it wasn’t always like that. Joggers and tracksuit bottoms are often thought of as sloppy, even chavvy, and not something to wear outside of sports. However, times have changed, casualwear is being embraced more and more, and joggers have been redefined.

If you’re into more casual clothing but the baggy sweatpants aren’t for you, modern joggers are something you’ll want to look at.

Hugo Red Fragrance For Men By Hugo Boss

This weeks’ fragrance review is an older scent, but one I haven’t featured on the blog for some bizarre reason, this is Hugo Red from Hugo Boss.

Hugo Red was released in 2013, and I bought my bottle back then, but I haven’t wrote or feature it. It’s one of many from Hugo Boss, but this is different from the usual BOTTLED lineup which has a massive cult following and plenty of admirers, including myself.

Black Chinos Outfit Ideas - Men's Style Guide

Some people love them, and others think they have no place in a man’s wardrobe. I am talking about a good pair of black chinos.

Chinos are a more casual form of trousers, and the good thing about them is that you can get a huge array of chinos in different colours. Therefore wearing a black pair might not be desirable, some even suggesting that you shouldn’t own a pair.

Depending on what you wear with black chinos, they could have a point. There’s plenty that suggest that pairing black chinos with a white shirt will make you look like a waiter or schoolboy, and I can see where that comes from.

However I like black chinos, and there’s plenty of clothes you can wear with them to make sure you look the part.

Here’s what you can wear with black chinos which will ensure you pull off this look and look stylish.

BRITS 2020

I watched the BRITS yesterday as I usually do each year, but they never seem what they used to be. These days the shows always seem a bit drab, boring, too scripted and nothing exciting ever really happens…But The BRITS 2020 was a good one!
