It’s time to take a look in the mirror, man-up and admit that your blonde-tipped fauxhawk, deep V-neck tee and bootcut jeans died over a decade ago! Luckily, you have us staring right back at you, begging you to burn that beater and torch those velcro sandals.  Over the next few days we’re publishing things that you need to stop wearing. Immediately. Forever.

The Statement Buckle – while we know you are proud of your manhood there really isn’t any reason to attract attention to your nether regions with a big-buckle belt. Particularly if said buckle is bigger than your..well let’s just leave it there.

COFFEE WITH AIDAN BENNETTS: THE MAN BEHIND THE MUSCLE

I met Aidan almost ten years ago. Me as the fashion director for Men’s Health, and Aidan an MH Look competition finalist. While the magnificent tattoos on his back definitely caught my eye, I was more intrigued by how down to earth he was.

As others preened and strutted their stuff, Aidan’s quiet confidence made him a standout. He was comfortable and modest – a pleasant surprise from someone blessed with Adonis-like genetics. While he didn’t win, he certainly carved out a successful career as a public persona, creeping into the hearts and homes of South Africans as the unassuming presenter on Top

Since embarking on my recent adventure travelling and working in the East I am constantly crossing paths with wonderfully creative people that inspire me endlessly. In particular this shop I discovered last night in Asiatique, Bangkok’s newest night market.

OUU KUANSUWAN is the owner and designer of BY MYSELF, handcrafted leather goods.  His style is simplistic & functional with an artisan’s attention to detail & good quality raw materials.  Who doesn’t love that? Check out his fine craftsmanship here.

If you’re planning a trip to Bangkok make sure you visit Asiatique The Riverfront and pop into Oou’s little shop and experience firsthand his gracious hospitality and spoil yourself with something from his fine selection of leather goods.

LISTEN UP!

Headphones are nothing new but have never been as popular as they are right now. Not only the domain of trendy students, even the best-dressed men are sporting anything-but-boring high fashion headphones.

Around the neck, on the ears, or just in hand, headphones have become a fashion accessory and make as much a statement as anything else you wear. But why compromise? Do yourself a favour and replace your inferior cheapies with one of these stylish alternatives – they look as good as they sound. Your ears will thank you.

Knitting may conjure up images of granny working on socks, but the latest tech in sneakers involved knitted, one-piece uppers. It makes them lighter, more flexible, and better ventilated cutting out the need for 95 percent of the seams – so no chafing or irritation. It also makes them super-comfortable; wear them for running and just about everything else you do. The smart engineers at the tick company wanted to replicate the feeling and comfort of wearing socks, but with the support of the Lunarlon cushioning. It took four years to find a way to make these uppers, and now they’ve created the perfect running shoe: featherlight, form-fitting and virtually seamless.

Leather slides – while we quite understand that you want to keep your feet cool we do not understand why you would want to wear anything as ugly as the leather slide.  They should be binned and banned forever.
