  • BEN SHERMAN AW17 CAMPAIGN

MODERN RHYTHM

Keeping in line with the heritage of Ben Sherman while still embracing men today “Modern Rhythm” celebrates Two Tone British Ska beat music and youth culture underpinned by the spirit of the sharp, smart 60s American Jazz scene.

The essence of “Modern Rhythm” is captured through seasonal drops in themed moods: Sixties Sharp, British Beat and West Coast Sound Studio keeping you decked out in true Brit style throughout winter. Our favourites? The trench coat and the parka of course.

Grooming: MASTER THE SHAVE IN ASSOCIATION WITH EGDARS

Written by | Found in: Grooming News | Posted on: 16 Apr 2017 - 7:18 pm

MASTER THE SHAVE

Shaving is a fundamental part of being a man. A welcomed rite of passage into manhood, a tradition passed from father to son. Fair enough. But let’s be honest shaving can sometimes seem more like a chilling surgical procedure rather than the pleasant male ritual it was promised to be.

But many men are guilty of bad shaving habits (if not daily then surely occasionally) that contribute to the unhealthy condition of their skin. Old blades, poor prep and shaving with cheap foam or worse yet soap wreak havoc on the skin resulting in painful and unsightly razor burn, bumps and inflammation.

  • JOSH WHITEHOUSE ANNOUNCED THE FACE OF NEW MR. BURBERRY EDP FRAGRANCE
  • MR. BURBERRY EDP 150ML R2000.00, EDP 100ML R1650.00 AND EDP 50ML R1170.00 SELECTED RETAILERS

INTRODUCING MR.BURBERRY EDP

Mr. Burberry Eau de Parfum, is a deeper, more sensual interpretation of the iconic Mr. Burberry Eau de Toilette. This new release, the collaboration between Burberry’s Chief Creative, Christopher Bailey, and perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, takes inspiration from the brand’s iconic black trench coat and London city at night.

It opens up with zesty notes of grapefruit, tarragon and cardamom, but quickly dries down to a sensual finish of birch leaf and vetiver . The bottle also gets the dressed-up Trenchcoat treatment, with a heavy cap reminiscent of horn buttons and a hand-tied knot in black gabardine the same fabric the iconic Burberry tench is made from.

But the Mr.Burberry story doesn’t end here. Three new limited-edition grooming products – Aftershave Balm, Face Scrub and Hair and Beard Clay – are added to the existing collection, each lightly infused with the scent of Mr. Burberry.

The face (or neck?) of the campaign is rising star Josh Whitehouse, chosen by Christopher Bailey and renowned for his role in 2014’s Northern Soul.

  • UOMO SALVATORE FERRAGAMO, 50ML EDT R1000.00 AND 100ML EDT R1380.00, SELECTED RETAILERS

SCENT OF LIFE

Privileged enough to attend one of legendary Salvatore Ferragamo’s last menswear shows in Milan, on recently experiencing the new fragrance Uomo Salvatore Ferragamo, I was instantly transported back to that summer’s day milling on the steps of the show venue amidst a relaxed yet refined gathering of Italian men, young and old.

Charmed then, I am equally so today. While fresh and cool at first it’s the heart note of this scent that sets it apart in defining Italian style –Tiramisu, the irresistible, iconic Italian dessert. That’s right. And just like the dessert, you (and those around you) will want more. If you fear you might smell like a pudding relax – Uomo Salvatore Ferragamo warms down with masculine sandalwood, cashmere and tonka bean.

HI-TEC. COOL COMFORT

You probably associate Hi-Tec with great boots. And yes, that’s perfectly correct. But this autumn HI-Tec expands its range to include an athleisure collection set to kick some serious sneaker ass.

Comfort, fashion and expected Hi-Tec efficiency – are all core elements which embody the new range. This gym-to-office shoe is a fusion of style and performance.

For sneaker “techies” you’ll be happy to know the Badwater and Badwater Cozy ranges were uniquely designed to maximize comfort, using technologies such as dual density CMEVA midsoles and flex grooves to enhance the natural motion of the foot.

Wear with jeans, sweats or tailoring for a comfortable yet stylish daily commute.
