  • INTRODUCING THE LEVI’S® 501® SKINNY

MODERN STYLE WITH A COVETED VINTAGE LOOK

501® jeans are where it all begun, they were the first of their kind and, just like you, they’ve evolved with the times. With skinny jeans becoming a wardrobe staple, Levi’s® decided to introduce an updated version of the iconic jeans; the 501® skinny.

The newest member comes with a few style differences from its predecessors: the men’s fit sits comfortably below the waist and features the skinny leg design to round out every denim lover’s wardrobe.

“We are very careful when we touch the 501®, and we do it with a lot of respect,” explains Jonathan Cheung, the Head of Design at Levi’s® Brand. “People have been altering their vintage 501® jeans for a snug, skinnier fit for years, so we followed that as inspiration and created a vintage-looking 501® Skinny.”

Available in non-stretch, low stretch and a range of washes for both men and women, the 501® Skinny joins the 501® Family, alongside the 501® Original and the 501®CT.

START WITH MID BLUE

If you’re venturing into the suit terrain for the first time consider starting with one in a mid blue. It’s not as formal as black and transitions easily from day to night. Dressed up or down it’s the go-to suit for any occasion.

But even the world’s most expensive suits look bad if they don’t fit well. Unless you’re born with the genes of a suit model, the very first thing you should do is have your suit properly fitted by a tailor. For a small outlay you’ll look like a million bucks.

  • BVLGARI, AQUA POUR HOMME ATLANTIQUE, 50ML EDT R 1 060 AND 100ML EDT R 1 480 AVAILABLE AT SELECTED RETAILERS

ESSENCE OF THE OCEAN

Aqva Pour Homme Atlantiqve is a new version of the popular masculine aquatic fragrance from Bvlgari, Aqua Pour Homme and created by the same master perfumer and famous “nose” Jacques Cavallier.

We have no doubt just like its predecessor Aqva Pour Homme, Atlantiqve is set to score high in the popularity stakes.

It’s a refreshing and energetic “aquatic” fragrance inspired by the strength of the Atlantic Ocean. Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian lemon and a “vital water” accord give it fresh zesty top notes. At its heart a “sea amber” note developed by Jacques Cavallier evokes the depths of the ocean and woody vetiver, sandalwood and patchouli give the blend masculine appeal.

REAL MEN WEAR PINK.

Merely mentioning pastels has most men scuttling nervously back to their man-caves. But whether you wish to admit it or not – It’s quite likely your wardrobe already has a rosy hue. That shirt you wear with your navy blue suit and call “salmon”? It’s pink. Own it. That pair of green boxers you haul out for special “occasions”? It’s pistachio dude by any fashionista’s decree.

Despite appearing wishy-washy pastels are easy to slot into what you already wear. They work well with the so-called “masculine” colours – like grey, khaki and navy – you’re already wearing every day. Pick hues that suit your skin tone and work with the rest of your outfit – you’ll be surprised how good you look.
