  • HOPE ON HOPKINS DISTILLERY LONDON DRY GIN, R330, CYBERCELLAR

THE LATEST HIPSTER TIPPLE

There appears to be nothing they won’t meddle with but fortunately for you we’re all winners here. The recent trendy upsurge in the gin market has brought the humble spirit from its historically white bread roots to its current assault on the floral kingdom.

The best part is the local offerings – particularly the London Dry Gin from the Salt River distillery, Hope on Hopkins. It’s a clean, classic london-dry style gin with a ‘secret’ collection of botanicals that makes it the perfect go to base for a simple GnT or Martini. No need to go overboard with trimmings – jdd a little citrus and/or rosemary to get the most out of it.
Tip: When tasting a gin neat try it at around 12-15˚C and add a splash of cold water – this releases the botanicals.

GO FOR BROGUE

If we’re to really pick holes – literally in this case – a brogue refers not to a shoe but a detail: the perforations originally designed to drain water from the feet of our ancestors.

Whether Oxford, Derby or the new hybrid Brogue Boot that has the same solid construction of an outdoor boot, but with all the wing-tipped, country-manor finesse of brogue shoes – your footwear arsenal is not complete without a pair.

COLD WEATHER SKINCARE

A brutal winter doesn’t just impact our immune systems or emotional well-being; it does a good job of ripping apart the skin’s natural protective barrier, too, which means winter skin care isn’t just a good idea — it’s a necessity.

Cold air and icy winds strip away the lipids in our skin that are responsible for keeping moisture locked in and for defending us against bacteria. This disruption to the protective barrier means most of us can look forward to red patches, flaky patches, chapped lips and some chronic itchiness well into spring.

Clarins Men – with its crisp new packaging and same excellent plant based formulation – has all your skincare needs covered. Here are 3 of Clarins Men products you need this winter.

CHANEL PRESENTS…

…its new advertising campaign for ALLURE HOMME SPORT, filmed by the talented young photographer and director Jacob Sutton. CHANEL chose Jacob Sutton for his modern, elegant style and for the technical artistry of his work.

This new campaign includes three films that are both spectacular and unexpected. Each illustrates a sport where man encounters nature with boldness and prowess: diving, downhill skateboarding and horseback riding.

For this campaign, CHANEL chose three new faces: Hugo Parisi, a professional diver from Brazil; Adam Crigler, an equally professional American skateboarder; and Luke Grimes, a young American actor.

THE EX-SL EFFECT

Half a decade ago South African designer Stiaan Louw and French photographic duo Exterface started their first collaboration. With an unapologetic expression and a tasteful eye, together they redefine underthings and shape a whole new intimate lifestyle for men.

By exploring ideas of cultural belonging, social and sexual subcultures and male archetypes, we bring fantasy to reality. The overwhelming response and their successful artistic partnership over the past 5 years has naturally led them to build the EX-SL project.

If ever you wanted to own a Stiaan Louw piece, now you can. Visit the EX-SL project here: EX-SL.com

SUEDE PARADE

The origin of the Loafer is disputed, but King George VI is said to have wanted an indoor lounge shoe for his country house back in 1926. Almost 100 years later the humble Loafer has earned its rightful place on every stylish man’s shoe rack.

Despite the name Loafer, there’s nothing slovenly about slip-ons, yet they certainly offer a more laid-back look. Low sitting and without laces, they have a Moccasin-like upper, often with a piece of leather straddling the top and easily differentiated from its cousin the Moccasin by a low heel.

Whether you opt for a pair in suede or leather is entirely your call. Either way you’ll be stepping out in laid back style.

SIMON CARTER OPENS IN SA

The Scottish Group launches another luxury exclusive brand this season in Sandton City’s Protea Court Mall – SIMON CARTER. Established just over 30 years ago, eponymous designer Simon Carter has been adding whimsy to the wrists of otherwise conservatively dressed men making SIMON CARTER one of the biggest names in the cufflinks business. And it doesn’t end there.

Today the offering extends to men’s apparel and the collection this season is artfully defined by its use of print and colour – injected with Simon’s customary wit and flair that will have any dapper man standing out in a crowd.
