As an outdoors man a quality waterproof coat is right at the top of things to own. I’ve recently upgraded to this Karrimor Elite Alpiniste 2 eVent Jacket and wanted to talk you beautiful people through what to look for when choosing a new waterproof jacket. I’ve chosen this one as it fulfills my three main criteria for keeping dry and comfortable, even if it’s raining sideways. Not only this but it’s well fitted and looks smart. Waterproof –…

Hopefully with my brief little guide you’ll have a helping hand. Wayfarer This is my personal favourite, I love their thick boxy shaped frames.

  With the sun going down at just gone five each day, there isn’t much day light anymore. This makes me sad. Cosy evenings are pretty much the only upside to this. I’ve recently been stocking up on new clothes for the winter season. Something I got this week that I’m already madly in love with, is this pair of Heat Holders from Sock Shop. They are the ultimate thermal sock and are rated at 2.3 togs, frankly I didn’t…

  ALERT THE MEDIA – When I was on holiday in Spain I made a massive fashion discovery; it turns out that the Iconic Wayfarer sunglasses by Ray-Ban (that I have previous written about) aren’t the work of Ray-Ban at all. Actually the original design was created by a company called Koyo Bom. Ray-Ban even managed to steal their logo and make theirs look almost identical, unless under close inspection. Koyo Bom have obviously suffered badly after this massive copyright…

  It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses. Elwood – The Blues Brothers I’ll start off by saying, there are three good reasons why I think you can wear sunglasses at night or indoors. You have a serious eye problem which you are hiding, You are one of the Blues Brothers, You are in Men in Black. If you are none of those things,…

  With the Met Office dishing out weather warnings across the United Kingdom left right and center, it’s time you got your dapper hands on some appropriate clothing. A good quality umbrella, stylish wellies and a hardy hooded coat are a must for this time of year. Remember people, it’s only the very start of October and winter is coming.

Winter is coming! About this time last year I was starting to think about coats, you see I’m normally one of those people that spends all winter thinking I need to get some gloves but doesn’t get round to buying them till April when its finally warming up. Or all summer after some shorts and buys them late September. So last year I thought i’d try and do it differently and buy some apparel at the start of the season.…

&nbsp One way to easily take a good pair of jeans from good to great is with an awesome belt buckle. Men can’t “accessories” as much as girls can (without looking like you are some Russel Brand character, who is trying too hard) but one way you can is with the cool buckle. I really like retro, american cowboy looking ones more than the geek chic superman, batman types. But everyone is different. Have a look through this small selection…
