Duck And Cover AW16

Duck And Cover AW16

Duck And Cover have launched their Autumn/Winter 2016 for this season, which features all the pieces you’d need to keep you on trend and warm for the cooler weather. The collection includes shirts, jackets, jeans, sweatshirts and knits, as well as a couple of beanies to keep your head warm and dry when the chill hits in the coming months.

They’ve sent over a couple of my favourite pieces which I have styled, which includes one of their T-shirts with a quilted bomber jacket and a pair of selvedge jeans.

The T-shirt I selected is deep navy tee with small tonal graphics to the top front of the chest of the shirt. The graphics are minimal and small, as well as being tonal, so keeps the tee understated and not too graphic orientated which I prefer for this look.

As you’ll know from reading my blog on various denim posts, I love selvedge denim, and for this season Duck & Cover have a few pairs of denim, including the use of the coveted selvedge. These come in a regular-tapered style so more loose and casual, with the dark wash always being stylish. My favourite piece from the collection is this quilted grey jacket.

It’s soft and smooth and comes with a quilted pattern and feel to it, with the lighter colour brightening up the whole look and really complimenting the dark tee and jeans well. All these pieces are available at Duck & Cover here.

Check out more photos and my picks from the AW 16 collection below.

Daily Style – Green And Blue Check Shirt


Isn’t the saying blue and green should never be seen?

This is one of my favourite casual shirts, it’s from Mango MAN. I wore this with a white tee a couple of weeks ago and I think it’s a really good combination.

Autumn is here but it’s actually been really nice weather which is always odd…Every year we seem to have really great Septembers, but the actual Summer months of August and July always seem underwhelming, right?

I love Autumn fashion and style, as well as Autumn knits I think that layering up some check shirts is a really cool style, and works just as well in early Autumn as it does in Spring. I wore this shirt with a Derek Rose premium white T-shirt, one of my favourite white tees.

I’ve featured this is my basic T-shirt guide which I written about a while ago and collaborated with the best premium basic companies, and this one is definitely one of my favourites. You can’t really see the jeans, but they’re black soft denim from Armani Jeans.

Today’s Style – ASOS Ecru Jeans With Red Hugo Boss T-Shirt


Hey guys!

So we’re apparently getting a bit of a heatwave again…Actually it’s only a couple of days of sun. I have been so busy with work that sadly I can’t do anything with these couple of days we have…Hopefully we’ll get some more before the Winter comes!

So today I wore my ASOS ecru jeans which have the distressed and ripped parts to them throughout. I’ve featured these on the blog a few times, they are really skinny, in fact “Super skinny” style which is not my favourite, but with the stretch in the fabric it makes these really easy to wear. I’m wearing them with my solid red Hugo Boss T Shirt which comes from the BOSS Green label, which is a contemporary sporty casual line from Hugo Boss. I styled them with some red Converse which I rarely wear these days.

More pics below… Enjoy the sun while you can ๐Ÿ™‚

Beach City Style At The Coast

Beach Style Which Works in the city too

As you’ll have already read, last week we had the best Summer’s day of the year (so far), it was really hot so I decided to go to the beach and walk along the coast. There were lots of guys walking around the promenade and even in the city with their shirts off…We get 1 hot day in Newcastle and England and people definitely overreact! :mrgreen: You should definitely keep your shirt on, if you want to take it off save that for when you are at the beach, on the sand or in the water, or if you’re lucky enough to be by a pool.

I love the nautical style for Summer, and I have 3 or 4 different striped tees, they’re all fairly similar. Summer also means lighter bottoms which I like, it gives me a chance to wear some coloured or lighter chinos or jeans. I think when it comes to picking out your clothing for something like this, you need to choose something versatile which can work in both a city situation around a lot of people, and the beach location which will be a lot more relaxed.

I wore this Nautical T-Shirt from ASOS, a pair of light chinos from Mango and my Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire which I really love. It’s finished off with my Ran Ban Aviators and my D&G watch.

Styling My Super Skinny ASOS Jeans

ASOS Super Skinny Jeans With Nautical T-shirt and Ugg Shoes

Hey guys!

OK first of all, I have a new hair colour…It’s darker brown! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love this colour, and haven’t dyed my hair in ages, but I’ve finally got round to it, a bit too late, it needs to be cut so I’ll end up having to dye it again. I used to buy Excell 10 which I really liked, number 4 “Natural dark brown” which was dark, but then they stopped selling it, so I had to switch to Nice n Easy, I tried their same colour but it didn’t seem to be as dark, so I’ve went darker to 3.5 and I love this colour, so I’ll be keeping it ๐Ÿ™‚

A while back you’ll know I got a few things from ASOS, these jeans and some nautical tops. We’ve finally had some good weather, and will hopefully get some more going forward, so I was able to style these items this week and took a couple of shots.

How Skinny Are ASOS Super Skinny Jeans?

As I’ve already mentioned, I misread these jeans and thought they were just regular skinny fit, which I quite like, but then when they arrived I realised that they were actually super skinny. What’s the difference? Well the name tells no lies, they really are super skinny, they’re skin tight! ๐Ÿ˜€ The legs really are like drainpipes, clinging to your legs, but the waist is quite regular and the denim has some stretch in it, making them comfortable. The leg opening is tight too, luckily they are made from soft denim, so are comfortable to wear.

The jeans are ecru in colour which I really like for the Spring/Summer, and have really cool distressed patches which I really like. If you’re looking for advice on light colour or white denim, check out myย what to wear with white jeans guide.

The Outfit

I wore these jeans with another ASOS item, the navy nautical T Shirt. This came in a two pack with the other being a colour reverse of this one, a white base and navy stripes. I think colour blocking this darker top with the ecru jeans looks really nice. It’s finished off with my Ugg suede shoes in blue, these are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned, I can’t quite believe they count as shoes and not the more comfortable trainers. I also wore my Ray Ban Aviators along with my D&G Watch.

Hopefully we’ll get lots of sun this year so we can all wear lots of summer fashion ๐Ÿ˜‰

Styling The Kurt Geiger Jenkins Grey Derby Shoes For Spring 2016


When it comes to shoes, I really love the derby style. It’s the one style of shoe I will busy time and again, and really love. Derby shoes are a smart shoe, and can be worn for almost any occasion; From a summer wedding to a night out, they’re pretty versatile when it comes to pairing them with your fashion.

I already own a pair of Kurt Geiger derby shoes, and in fact they’re my second pair, after getting those last year as my go-to smart footwear choice.

I’ve got the brand new Kurt Geiger Jenkins derby shoes for this Spring, and I simply love them. Like a standard derby shoe they’re suitable for both a smart and casual setting, but these are grey, and also genuine suede, which will add a new dynamic to putting together an outfit.

As we know, these are a pair of shoes every guy should own, because of their versatility, and because they’re just so stylish.

The grey colour is something I really like. It’s something different to the traditional black formal shoe, and these will brighten up an outfit for this season while still being fairly understated. Suede means taking extra care with these, but that should not be a problem.

This combination adds a more casual element to a style which is usually more formal, but these shoes are still really smart and will make any outfit pop.

I have styled them in a sort of rock star look ๐Ÿ˜€

Wearing my favourite black Selvedge Nudie Jeans, along with a plain white tee and leather black jacket from Selected Homme, it’s a really simple outfit to put together, only three items of clothing plus the shoes, but a look I really like.

Styling The Kurt Geiger Niles Oxford Shoes In Brown For Spring

Styling the Kurt Geiger Niles Brogues

Brogues are a style of shoe which I have never previously owned. Brogues are all about the detailing, the perforations are what give a pair of shoes the brogue title. There’s many variations, from a full brogue/wingtips to half brogues and quarter brogue, they’re defined by the amount, and style of perforations which are on the shoe design.

Kurt Geiger sent over these brogues which are part of their brand new Spring/Summer 2016 collection for me to take a look at and style up. The Kurt Geiger Niles shoes are a pair of Oxford shoes with classic brogue detailing, they’re a really nice pair of shoes and I have them in this stylish brown colour.

The “W” and all over toe perforations indicate the brogue style. I’ve always thought of brogues as a more smart-casual style of footwear, rather than a classic Oxford or derby style of shoes. Getting these in this brown option is perfect for a smart-casual outfit, and since they’re quite a light-to-mid brown they’re a great colour for the Spring/Summer season ahead.

As we know brogues are one of the shoes that every man needs, with their laid back edge combined with the smart look when combined with the right clothing. They can really make an outfit stand out, and going for a colour like this one, they become distinctive and stand out for the right reasons.

I have gone for a smart casual style for this outfit, and paired the shoes with a pair of indigo H&M Selvedge denim jeans, Junk De Luxe cardigan and GANT check shirt. I think the shoes really compliment the rest of the outfit, and keep the whole outfit looking really smart.

If you want to check out their new range head over to Kurt Geiger here, the Niles I am wearing here are ยฃ99 and you can find them here.

What do you guys think? ๐Ÿ™‚

Spring Fashion Style – Purple And Grey


Hey guys! ๐Ÿ™‚

Spring is here (apparently) so I thought about styling some fashion with that in mind. With warmer months brighter and more colourful options become valid, not that you need a reason to add a splash of colour to your outfit, but it’s a good reason ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have gone for this smart-casual look, which consists of a light grey jacket from Jaeger, a light purple shirt with white pin striping from Chester Barrie, mid-dark jeans from Armani andย my purple Converse to compliment the outfit. I went for my Tom Carter watch too…I really like this watch, it’s a very big men’s style of watch, with brown leather strap which makes it fairly distinctive. Remember if you like this to check out more of my men’s fashion tips for this season.

Last beard day of 2016!

It also marks the day of my last beard day! I decided that I wouldย be clean shavenย for the rest of the year until November aka Movember. Last year I did a similar thing, but going clean shaven from the Summer, this time round I have decided to do it a bit earlier, yesterday in fact,ย going forward from Easter I will be clean shaven ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great Easter everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

Men’s Style – Simple Clean Shirt, Jacket & Jeans


Just a little street style post for you today ๐Ÿ™‚

March is here which is supposed to mean Spring, but you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s still Winter, since it’s probably colder now than it was in December! ๐Ÿ˜› Anyway,ย I have decided that I will be shaving off my beard/tash for the Spring/Summer….I did a similar thing last year, when I went clean shaven from 1st June. I have decided that this year I am going to do it earlier, and do it for Easter. It’s now becoming a bit of a tradition; Clean shaven for summer, beard to keep my face warm for Winter ๐Ÿ˜›

I decided to shoot this photo in black and white, I am wearing a combination which I really like; Smart jacket, shirt and pair of jeans. I am wearing a jacket from Minimum, the shirt is from Jaeger and the jeans are from Nudie Jeans.

Newcastle Suit Styling With Topman


TOPMAN recently launched their campaign for their suit styling this season, and picked out some of the biggest fashion bloggers in the UK to style a suit for their city. Great Britain, Great Suits, is all about different styles of suits in some of the hottest cities in the UK. These were London, Brighton, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and of course Newcastle.

I am proud to say that I represented Newcastle, and spoke of the style trends we have in our amazing city. My suit choice was called “Shades of Blue“, and as the name suggests, was a blue suit, styled with a light blue shirt, and black derby shoes. The colour and style is really great for our city, which is a mix of bustling restaurants and bars, plenty of shopping for the latest fashion and relaxing in a more chilled out environment. Blue is a very versatile colour when it comes to suits;ย A blue suit is something I think every guy should own, it’s more of a modern colour over the usual black, can be worn in a variety of situations you may find yourself in, and can be styled with so many different colour and texture options.

Of course there’s only one place to shoot this outfit to represent Newcastle; Our iconic Quayside, and managed to get a bit of the Tyne Bridge in too ๐Ÿ˜‰

Check out the campaign, with the Interactive Map here, and all the suiting styles here. This blue suit is available at Topman, you can get all the details on the campaign pages ๐Ÿ™‚
