SWANKY HANKY PANKY!

TAILORED FOR SUMMER

The trend this summer is pleasantly simple. The buzzword? “Tailoring”. And by that we don’t mean wearing a suit (although there will undoubtedly be occasion to do so). Neither does it imply endless missions to the local tailor. We’re simply talking fit – less baggy, more streamlined. Stat.

And to make it easier for you, we collaborated with three esteemed brands – Ben Sherman, Pringle of Scotland and Country Road – that offer a stylish selection of everything you need to master this summer’s “tailored” look.

    PHOTOGRAPGH: EUROXCISER

MAN & BEAST IN SYNC

Looking for something outdoorsy to do this weekend that doesn’t involve beach sand or a sweaty hike? May we suggest the SA Dressage and Para Dressage 2016 Championships as a rather stylish alternative?

Taking place on the 5th and 6th of November 2016, horses, fashion, and design will celebrate in Stellenbosch, as the cream of South African Dressage compete for coveted titles.

Hosted in Stellenbosch, both days herald an exciting line up. On Saturday it’s the South African Championships and Sunday the Freestyle Championships – the riveting SA dressage performed to music. Add free entrance (and men in jodhpurs) to the mix and a day at the dressage seems like a great way to spend the day.

What to wear? No need to don a suit – a jacket and tailored pants with a pair of sneakers will cut it. Oh, and don’t forget a hat!
