Men’s Fashion Trends To Avoid In 2019 – You Should NEVER Wear These

Menswear Trends You Should Avoid And Stay Stylish

We all want to look good when we wear our clothes, right? I mean, that’s kind of why we buy them, and why we buy what we buy. If we just bought clothing for the sake of it, we’d probably all be running around in the same, cheap and boring stuff.

I spend a lot of time writing about good things, classic timeless pieces, staple menswear, must have items and trends as well as what you should wear and when. But what about things you should avoid?

It’s a bit negative to talk about the terrible fashion mistakes and the trends you should avoid, but I think it’s kind of necessary.

When it comes to your own personal style, you can rock what you want, and everyone will be different, which is cool. But there’s some things which are just universally terrible, and 2019 trends you really should avoid in my opinion.

Here’s what not to wear, and the trends you should avoid.

The Weekend: The Final Of The 2018-19 Premier League Season

Wearing A Stanford University Hoodie

Happy Monday, I hope you had a good weekend.

Do you remember that time I went to Stanford University for 4 years? Yeah, OK, so maybe that didn’t happen, but I did find my Stanford University hoodie that I bought ages ago. I was hunting around for it, and eventually found it, so had to wear it yesterday when we had sunshine but it was cold.

There was only one thing going on this weekend, it was the end of the Premier League, and the race for the title. It was either Man City or Liverpool, and I wanted Man City to win, and they did! They’ve won their last 14 games in a row in the Premier League, got 98 points and so deserve to win it.

The Festival (Film) For Film Night

The Festival Film Review

A film I’ve wanted to watch for a while is The Festival. I’ve had it in my Amazon wish list, and was going to buy it, but lucky for me, it’s been put on Amazon Prime, so I decided to watch it.

The trailers for the film looked good. As the title suggests, the setting for the film is at a music festival. It stars Joe Thomas from The Inbetweeners and is directed by Iain Morris, who was also involved with that show. I liked The Inbetweeners, the trailers looked good, so I thought this was going to be a good watch.

I’ve never been to a festival, and after watching this film, I’m so glad about that….

Happy Friday!

It’s the end of a pretty short week thanks to the bank holiday, and it’s also time for this week’s must have menswear, aka Fashion Friday Five. If you’ve never read the blog before, this is the weekly segment where I showcase five pieces of menswear which has caught my eye over the week.

This week showcases another T-shirt from the tie dye trend, a sweatshirt to keep warm in our forever changeable weather we’ve been having, a cool tee,  a short sleeve shirt and those must have socks.

So here’s this week’s must have menswear in full, with all the details on how to buy these products.

The Story Of The Summer With Lacoste Cool Play

Lacoste Cool Play Eau De Toilette For Summer

I was looking through some of my old fragrances and I came across this, Lacoste Cool Play. This bottle of eau de toilette basically sums up why I like fragrances, what got me into them, and separates us who love scents from those who just wear them. Some are just bottles of nice smelling water, while others have a story. This one comes with a story.

Trying Out Rekorderlig Botanicals Cider Ready For Summer

Rekorderlig Botanicals Preview - Michael 84

Happy Saturday, It’s the start of another Bank Holiday weekend!

So a few days ago you may have caught on my Instagram stories that I was trying out some Rekorderlig Botanicals, and got some flavours which I haven’t previously had. If you’re unaware, Rekorderlig is a Swedish cider brand, I’ve featured them a fair bit on the blog over the years, and a while ago they released some new flavours, which they are calling botanicals.

I had a couple last year, but I found that they have some more flavours which I hadn’t tried. I thought I would get some bottles which would last me for a little while, they’ll come in perfect for the Summer, my birthday and of course the Swedish Midsummer (Midsummer’s eve falls on my birthday!).

The blackberry-violet-juniper was a flavour which I hadn’t tried before, so I was looking forward to giving that a go.

What do they taste like?

Are you looking to make a statement this Summer? White jeans could be the way to go. If you’re wondering what to wear with white jeans, there’s plenty of great combinations, with tips on how to wear them.

When it comes to our lower half, guys tend to wear various shades of blue or black, but white is available, and is a great option.
