Let’s face it Dad is easily pleased, at least easier to please than Mum so...

What’s Your New Year Resolution?

The origins of making a New Year's resolution are lost in the annuls of time. Some say it was started by The Romans who began each year by making promises to the god Janus; other say it started during the Medieval era when knights took the "peacock vow" at the end of the festive season each year to re-affirm their commitment to chivalry, the truth is we just don’t know but we do know that only about one in ten of us keep our resolutions for more than 30 days...

What does ‘Black Tie’ mean?

On invitations and for those going on a cruise it is not uncommon to see the words ‘Black Tie’, so we often get asked what is mean by this as there appears to be some confusion as to what a ‘Black Tie’ event is and what men should wear. If you think what James Bond would wear in the evening you won’t go far wrong. ‘Black Tie’ is a tradition short hand to mean eveningwear. So men should wear an evening suit and ladies and evening dress. It’s as straight forward...

Form an angle loop with the short end of the tie crossing left. Drop the long end at the neck over this horizontal loop.   4. Form a similar angle loop with the...

How To Look Slimmer

Yeah you could go on a diet but I wouldn’t recommend it. The word diet is defined as “the kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats”. So you shouldn’t ‘go on’ a diet but change your diet and change it permanently if you want to weigh less. Easier said than done I know but a truth non-the-less. But this blog isn’t about losing weight it’s about how bigger men can look slimmer. 1. Contrast colours; wear lighter coloured tops than bottoms, so dark trousers, chinos or jeans...

How To Keep Cool

What you wear makes a big difference to how cool you feel. Every wondered why waiters in hot countries wear a vest? 1.  Button up shirts are cooler than T-shirts and T-shirts are cooler than polo shirts. 2. Natural fabrics are cooler than man-made ones. If possible go for either a pure or high cotton shirt as natural fabrics breath more easily. 3. Bamboo has all the benefits of cotton with the added benefit of natural anti-bacterial properties. 4. Wear chinos instead of denim jeans. Even though both jeans and chinos are generally made...
