Pima Cotton T Shirts From NN07

Wednesday, 3rd July, 2019

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜€ 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

Monday, 1st July, 2019

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 πŸ˜‚

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

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.

My Lacoste Polo Shirt in Navy Blue

What do you wear when you want something smarter than a tee, but less stuffy than a shirt?

Well if you’ve been reading lately you’ll know the answer. One really good option is a polo shirt. One of the pieces of clothing I got for my birthday recently was a polo shirt, and it was this one, a navy colour from Lacoste.

Birthday & Midsummer Weekend

Sunday, 23rd June, 2019

Midsummer T Shirt - Adidas Originals

Happy Sunday guys!

So this weekend it has been a really nice, chilled out and relaxed kind of affair. It was my birthday, and I wanted to just relax for most of the weekend. It was also Midsummer, which means drinking cider, and wearing what now seems to be my obligatory Midsummer t-shirt…Since I wear it once a year :mrgreen:

I had a couple of drinks of cider, my favourite which is Rekorderlig. The flavours are so good, and I’ve featured the Rekorderlig botanicals on the blog before. If you’ve never tried them now is the perfect time. They go down really well in the Summer.

Rekorderlig Botanicals Ciders for Midsummer

For my birthday I got some cool clothes, and so I’ll be posting the outfits and what I got over the coming days and weeks. There’s some nice pieces of menswear which I’ve wanted for a while, and since the sales are on, I’ve bought a few more things which I can’t wait to share.

Speaking of menswear…Fashion Friday. Some people asked where it was. I have tons of style and fashion related features for the summer which I need to do (like the latest floral shirt post) which I’ll be doing for a few weeks – So Fashion Friday aka the must have menswear for the week is taking a little break.

Even though the football season is over, since I am a footy fan, I always find some to watch. Yesterday I watched the Spain U21 vs Poland U21, and what a great match it was. Spain won 5-0 and were brilliant. I also caught the penalties in the women’s world cup with Norway & Australia. Later today England will be playing Cameroon, and tomorrow USA vs Spain.

Birthday cake and socks

Here’s a pic of my cake, a novelty cake of course which tasted really good. And then my socks, blue and yellow from Jollies, I really like these socks.

Have a great Sunday guys πŸ™‚

The Best Floral Shirts For Men 2019

The hot weather makes me think of a couple of things, and when it comes to fashion one of those is floral shirts. I love the classic, solid, staple colour shirts you wear for most of the year, but if you want to make a statement in the warmer months, jumping on the printed shirt trend is the way to do it.

If you’re looking for tips on how to style a floral shirt, advice on where to shop for them or are just looking for some inspiration, you can sit back and read on πŸ™‚

La Rive Blue Line Eau De Toilette – Lacoste Cool Play Alternative?

Wednesday, 19th June, 2019

La Rive Blue Line Eau De Toilette

As you’ll have read a while back, I have been using one of my favourite men’s scents of all time, Lacoste Cool Blue. I’ve had it for so many years, it’s quite unique and it’s one of those which has a special place in my heart when it comes to smells. But as you’ll have read, it’s no longer available, it’s discontinued and so I can’t get it again.

But can we get an alternative? I heard about a fragrance called La Rive Blue Line, and decided to check it out.
