CK One Clothing Collection From Calvin Klein

As you should know by now if there’s one trend in fashion I have liked over the past 5 or 6 years it’s been the re-birth of the 90’s trend. One of the brands at the centre of that has been Calvin Klein, and they’re at it again with their CK One Capsule Collection.

Michael Day 2020 Wearing red shirt with grey sweater

Happy Valentines Michael Day!

The tradition for normal people to celebrate Valentines Day, but if you’ve been reading this blog since day one, it’s been a tradition to have Michael Day. It’s not a tradition I can stop, and why would I!? 😀

It’s an absolute eating and drinking fest, and the only food which is allowed is terrible food which is not good for you. That would be lots and lots of chocolate and various carbs, not forgetting lots of alcohol later.

If you’ve seen any of my previous Michael Day’s you’ll have seen me make home made gyros, have filet steak, plenty of champagne and of course you can’t forget the truffles!

I have toned things down in recent years, this year I will have spaghetti bolognese and I’ve already had french toast for brunch/lunch…Something I love but rarely eat.

This usually coincides with pancake day and I call it fat week, however this year that’s not until the end of the month, so there’s 2 weeks to wait for that.

If you are planning a Valentines with a girl I have some helpful posts. Whether you’re looking at what to wear, what fragrance to use, where to go & what to do, or some general style rules, here’s some posts from the blog which will help you out on this day:

Hopefully these will be helpful to you for whatever you’re getting up to tonight.

I also can’t get it go without talking about my style. Since today is all about red, I’ve dug out a red shirt I own, and teamed it up with a V-neck jumper in grey.

I bought this red shirt such a long time ago and rarely worn it. It’s such a bright poppy colour, probably too bold to wear on it’s own. I think it works fine with another darker piece, and I think it works fine with the sweater. For the lower half I’ve kept things dark with some black chinos.

Whatever you’re up to today and tonight, have a good one!

Happy Valentines Day 😉

Armani Diamonds For Men Fragrance Review

I was having a look through my fragrances to see what I could feature this week, and came across an old scent which I’ve never talked about before, Armani Diamonds For Men.

Armani is known for so many of it’s incredible scents, possible the most favoured, Acqua Di Gio which is almost universally loved. There’s plenty others, but Armani Diamonds, which was released way back in 2008 never seemed to get too much love. I did buy it back then, and here’s what it’s all about.

The Most Stylish Football Managers

Who is the best dressed manager in football?

From tracksuit managers to the suited and booted, there’s a lot of style and fashion in the dugout and on the touchline these days.

With the money in football, there’s no reason why the managers shouldn’t be looking their best and dressing the part.

The Premier League 2019-20 season is here, and there’s been some stylish management movements, with Frank Lampard being in charge of Chelsea, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer beginning his first full season as Man United boss.

There’s also the three promoted teams, Norwich, Aston Villa and Sheffield United entering the most stylish managers contest.

So in no particular order, here’s the best dressed managers in the Premier League, and what I love about their style.

James May: Our Man In Japan (Review)

James May Our Man In Japan Review

Bim, Guess What!? (A joke from the show which you’ll understand when you watch it)

James May has branched out on his own and got his own Amazon show without Clarkson and Hammond, Our Man In Japan.

This is of course not the first James May show, with previous shows on the BBC such as Cars Of The People, Toy Stories and The Re-assembler, he’s no stranger at doing TV shows without the other two.

I have always wanted to go to Japan, and I think it’s quite a fascinating place, many people do. When I heard about this show I knew I had to watch it, so I did.

Here’s what it’s all about.
