The ABC of Lululemon

By Alex Noble

Fitness is very much like fashion when it comes to trends; Last year’s sweet potato is this year’s avocado (Do not get me started on those smoothie bowls) whilst bodypump has been given the cold shoulder in favour of yoga in 2017.  Anyway, on the topic of yoga, I’ve often listened to friends harp on about its benefits: ‘Seriously old […]

The Smart Casual Conundrum

By Alex Noble

God, this is a toughie. For us chaps, receiving an invitation to a birthday celebration, launch party, New Years Do etc. which contains the words smart casual, usually scares the living daylights out of us. There’s also the unsavory beast of ‘business casual’ to tackle. Those employers trying to trip you up by ensuring you arrive […]

Tom Daxon Sicilian Wood Duo

By Alex Noble

I would argue that a well-groomed individual often feels very good about themselves, which will in turn enhance their daily output (work or social) and general mood. I’m not about to embark upon an analysis of the human psyche and you may think what […]

The Parker Jotter: The Writing Utensil of a Dapper Chapper

By Alex Noble

Chaps, I’d like you to cast your minds back to a time when Christmas cards used to flood through your letterbox, and decorate your walls throughout December. The days when people actually took the time to write Christmas cards, instead of leaving a social media post or paying a card website to do the work for them.  […]

Thomas Sabo: A Watch is for Life, Not Just for Christmas

By Alex Noble

Christmas is a wonderful time of year when anything goes. Your bad behaviour at the office Christmas party is usually swept under the carpet (at least until January), your chocolate indulgence is endorsed instead of frowned upon, and you’re allowed to ask for a gift that you wouldn’t dream of requesting at any other time.  I’m often […]

Mankind Advent Calendar

By Matt Denney

I’m still a big fan of the daily festive ritual that is the opening of an advent calendar in the lead up to Christmas Day. But it’s also fair to say I’ve also been on the look out for an alternative to the typical chocolate indulgence of previous years. Enter Mankind and their premium advent calendar, stocked […]
