SHORT LIST!

Although strictly speaking just a few centimeters of fabric less than its time-honoured counterpart – the long-sleeved shirt – short-sleeved shirts have long been the butt of far too many a sartorial joke. However, recently it’s been given a whole new lease of life thanks to reinterpretations from designers and high street retailers alike.

It’s time to cast aside any dated associations with IT technicians and dental sales reps to remind ourselves that a short sleeved shirt is not only stylish but also practical. As the mercury rises and the heavy heat of summer hits, a shorter sleeve keeps you adequately aerated so no more unsightly sweat patches!

When it comes to fit, think slim-cut and not baggy. Sleeves should fall at least a few centimeters above the elbows and shouldn’t flap about like a pair of wings.

Fashion: PUMA X ICNY COLLECTION

  • PUMA R869 X ICNY TRINOMIC R2499

PUMA x ICNY FOOTWEAR

German sportswear giant PUMA taps into Brooklyn-born alternative sportswear brand ICNY for its latest collection. With ICNY’s penchant for reflective goods for added visibility and safety, the two brands fuse safety, function, innovation and style together.

Utilising ICNY’s reflective technology, PUMA’s classic Trinomic R698 is given a futuristic makeover. The R698 is showcased in three strong colour ways. The colourways include black, red and true to ICNYs signature safety style, a striking neon yellow. They’re joined by a Trinomic R698 x ICNY X3M done up in allover reflective silver with the same features. Each silhouette includes reflective piping that runs through the stitching, making them stand out wherever you are.

Grooming: NIVEA MEN CRÈME

  • NIVEA MEN CRÈME, 75ml R39.99 at selected retailers.
    Available in two variants, NIVEA MEN CREME regular; or NIVEA MEN CREME Even Tone, for darker skin tones, with UV filters and Liquorice Extract to preserve even skin tone and protect against UV rays.

GOOP TO GO!

NIVEA MEN gets it right again – a FACE moisturizer packaged in a manly little tin. How cool? There aren’t many men who can honestly say they carry a face moisturiser around with them – most men tend to slap on a dollop of whatever body lotion is lurking at the bottom of their gym bags.

Red flag! Don’t do it – this can wreak havoc on the skin on your face. Why? Body lotions/creams contain, as much as 20%, oil and can lead to breakouts and oiliness. They’re also more likely to be scented which can potentially irritate skin.

Stash a tin of NIVEA MEN CRÈME in your workbag, gym bag, cubbyhole or desk drawer.
