The Best Sweat Shorts In 2019 For Men – Stylish & Comfy For Summer

How To Style Sweat Shorts

UPDATED FOR 2019

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, also known as sweatshirt 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.

The Goods Live Hard Sell Hard Film Review

Hey guys, I hope you’ve had a good weekend so far!

For my latest film night, I wanted to watch something light and funny, but after looking around Amazon Prime, I couldn’t find something which I liked and wanted to watch, which I hadn’t seen before. I haven’t bought any Blu Rays/DVDs for ages, so looked to see what I had. I found The Goods: Live Hard Sell Hard which I haven’t seen in so long, so decided to watch that.

This Week’s Must Have Menswear: Summer Sale Edition

Friday, 5th July, 2019

Must Have Menswear - Summer Sale 2019 Edition - 5th July

Hey guys, happy Friday!

So last week you may have noticed that the must have menswear was missing…It took a little break as I have a lot of features for the summer which are a lot bigger, such as the best bumbags which I featured last week to take it’s place.

But fear not, the must have menswear post is back this week! Since the sales have been on I decided I would create a post which featured only sale items. There was a ton to look through, and as you’ve already seen, I’ve got myself a few items from the sale recently too.

Rather than there be five fashion Friday items, I’ve added in a few more, so there’s seven. There’s a mix of retro pieces you can pick up cheap, a couple of staple classic items and of course many, many tees.

Here’s this week’s must have menswear.

I Got Them! – Air Max2 Light QS Atmos Trainers [Unboxing & Review]

Thursday, 4th July, 2019

Air Max2 Light QS Atmos Unboxing By Michael 84

It’s a pair of trainers which I featured on the blog months ago, I loved them, and thought about getting them for months…Now I have finally got them, the Nike Air Max2 Light QS Atmos, and here they are.

I never get too excited by trainers these days, but I have to say, I really love some of the Air Max which Nike have been doing in recent years. Earlier in the year these super colourful trainers were seen, it was a collaboration with Japanese brand Atmos, and I loved them. I featured a preview of the Air Max 2 Atmos on the blog, and really thought about getting them as soon as they were released.

I didn’t get them immediately, but I have now, and here’s why…

Pima Cotton T Shirts From NN07

Blue and grey NN07 No Nationality T Shirts

Hey guys!

First of all I have to say happy July. I can’t believe that June is over, and we’re supposed to be well into the Summer now, but other than last week, the weather hasn’t shown it. Hopefully it will only get better, and we have more T-shirt days, since I’ve bought quite a few T Shirts lately 😉

Have you bought anything in the sales? They’re always on around my birthday which is both good and bad; It means that if I ever buy anything before my birthday it’s usually more expensive than after it 😀 This year the summer sale seemed to start early, and a couple of days ago I got myself a couple of Pima cotton T Shirts from NN07.

I really like these tees, and here’s why…

The Best Bucket Hats You Can Wear This Summer

The Best Bucket Hats To Buy This Summer

When I think of bucket hats I think of the 90s, and the iconic figures wearing the bucket hats. I can’t remember owning one although I may have done, but I was never much of a fan. It’s been almost 20 years since the 90s, but this trend which was hot in the mid-late 90s now seems to be back.

It was a trend in the 90s which was adopted from people of all fashion worlds; From the Brit Pop rockers like Liam Gallagher to the world of Hip Hop culture, embraced by people like LL Cool J, and as seen on A listers with style such as Samuel L Jackson with the infamous Kangol bucket hats.

So if you’re looking for a 90’s trend and need some headwear, the bucket hat is the way to go. They’re back, with some great options available.

Here’s the best bucket hats you can buy this summer.

Music Playlist: June 2019 – Retro 90’s Summer Bangers Edition

Sunday, 30th June, 2019

The Michael 84 Playlist

Hey guys!

So it’s time for another playlist for the month, and since it’s the summer, I am going to change things up a little bit. Instead of including the latest tracks which are new that I’ve been listening to, I am going to create a Summer Bangers Playlist…But not just any summer songs, these are retro tracks, which are mostly from the 90s.

I will probably do 2 lists. This month I will focus on the more pop and dance from the 90’s, maybe with a bit of hip hop. For the July/August I may focus on the later years, the early 00’s.

The music scene in the 90’s was the best, I will always say that. It had so many genres, and in particular there was so much upbeat music with a dance feel; From pop to euro pop, electro pop, dance, whatever name you want to give it, it was good.

Also if you remember, I said I would listen to the song, “Wake Up It’s A Beautiful Morning” by The Boo Radleys every single day. We’re 30 days in, and I have listened to it at least once every day 😂

I have tried to jam pack as many tracks as I could remember loving from the summers of the past into this list. So here we go, here’s my 90’s retro summer playlist for June 2019.

The Best Bum Bags For Men This Summer: From Designer Bum Bags To High Street

Friday, 28th June, 2019

Bum Bags On Trend This Season

Just when you thought you’d missed out, bum bags are back in fashion!

If you are 25 years old or under, then you can be forgiven if you don’t know what a bum bag is, but if you’re like me, and grew up with 90’s fashion trends, then you’ll know all about them, and probably had one, if not a few.

The bum bag was quite iconic, used by many mostly for holidays and festivals, and used to a lesser extend as a general bag to carry around small items for daily use. However times have changed, we carry around a lot of small things, and can occasionally need something to carry them in. From phones to cameras and other tech devices, there’s so much we carry.

If you’re a girl you may get a small bag, but guys tend not to use a bag unless they want to carry around larger items, such as tablets or laptops. So they’re not only practical, but they’ve come into fashion, and love them or hate them, we’ll probably be seeing more and more this season.
