MAX IT WITH EPI-MAX®

Sun is out. And with it we’re guessing your swimwear – right? But, before you consider exposing your dry winter skin to all and sundry, may we suggest a little personal grooming first? Where to start? Moisturise.

But before you dash out to the local supermarket to pick up a bulk-size bottle of cheap body lotion you need to know not all moisturisers are the same.

To spare you the laborious scientific jargon and research, you basically get 2 types of moisturisers – aqueous based and emollients with a lipid component. The up side of emollients like Epi-max®, an all-purpose emollient moisturiser, is that they increase the skins hydration (water content) by creating a barrier that reduces evaporation of water from the skin. So it’s two fold really – you’re applying more moisture and at the same time reducing dehydration.

Epi-max® is all you need to get your body prepped, top to bottom.

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.

GRAVITY RESISTANCE

Global sports brand PUMA collaborates with Polish brand UEG for the first time making it the first full European collaboration within the PUMA Select line. Inspired by the human need of reaching higher, traveling farther, exploring more, of overcoming our own limitations, not only in sport performance but also in personal evolution with a strong metaphor of cosmic exploration.

The design refers to the costumes of astronauts ~ a mix of clean silhouettes with a bold graphic language of emergency symbols and prints in both apparel and footwear reflect the desire to being free of gravity’s restraints and common restrictions.

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!

eDition: JACK AND JONES SS16: THE STATEMENT TEE

  • T-SHIRT, R199.95 AND JEANS, R849.95 BOTH JACK AND JONES.
    AVAILABLE AT EDGARS - STORES MALL OF AFRICA, MALL OF THE SOUTH & GALLERIA.

TEE TIME!

The t-shirt is the no-brainer wardrobe basic every man needs -loves to wear. Except it isn’t so basic anymore. We’re spoiled for choice. From V-neck to crew neck to Henley, the t-shirt is now the ultimate symbol of diversity in a man’s wardrobe. Whether you opt for stripes, graphics or plain colours, a selection of tees is your best bet for temperature control this summer.

As a general rule of thumb, print overkill is best avoided. If one component of your outfit features a vibrant print, it’s best to keep the rest of your look a plain and simple affair – so best to go with jeans. The colour? Entirely your call…

We’re enjoying the Jack and Jones selection of cool slogan tees and jeans.
