IN BRIEF: WHITE. BLACK. OR GREY!

It would appear some men care alarmingly little for their choice in underwear. Bulk-pack-cheapies are, to say the very least, unsightly.

However men in the know have been entrusting the family jewels to Fruit of the Loom Underwear since as far back as 1871. The brand’s familiar logo of fruit is one any man can feel comfortable showing should the occasion arise.

Available in boxers and briefs in the only colours self-respecting men should ever wear: black, white and grey. Stat.

SOCKS. BUT NOT JUST ANY SOCKS!

We’ve rounded up a selection of Ben Sherman socks that will turn the sad state of any boring sock drawer on its head and add a subtle punch of personality to every man’s wardrobe.

What to wear it with? Everything and anything. The traditional ban on digital watches and suits is a thing of the past.
