Fashion: THE MID-BLUE SUIT: SIGNATURE AT EDGARS

  • SLIM FIT JACKET R1099.95, SHIRT R249.95, TIE R149.95, SLIM FIT PANTS R449.95 AND BROGUE SHOES R799.00, ALL SIGNATURE AT EDGARS

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.

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.

Grooming: FRAGRANCES | BOSS BOTTLED INTENSE

  • Boss Bottled Intense 50ml EDT, RSP R840 and100ml EDT, RSP R1120
    Available at selected Edgars, Red Square, Truworths and Stuttafords

BOSS BOTTLED GETS INTENSE

17 years ago men everywhere started wearing Boss Bottled. We’re guessing they’re all grown up now and luckily, so has our favourite Boss fragrance.

Brand new in 2015, Boss Bottled INTENSE is a refined, shall we say slightly grown-up, interpretation of the original Boss Bottled of 98.

The fragrance, still luxurious and manly, is less sweet than the original – woodier and spicier, with a higher concentration of scented oils, clove and cinnamon.

If you loved it then, you’ll love it now. And if you haven’t yet tried either – well, let’s just say you’re losing out.
