St James’s Market: Acoustic August

By Alex Noble

As the end of summer looms, it’s quite easy to feel rather melancholy about the whole thing. It’s been an extremely warm summer in the city, meaning seersucker and linen have been regularly on show, and so to receive some respite from the intense heat does seem rather appealing. Although the sun may have disappeared, […]

Andaz Hotel: Sir Terence Conran Suite

By Alex Noble

Who doesn’t like hotel life? The robes, mini bar, (usually) wonderfully comfortable bed, breakfast in your robe on your wonderfully comfortable bed, a midnight bubble bath, room service (Champagne); the list of perks is truly endless and I for one am not afraid to admit I stay in hotels within my home city, just because I love […]

The Perfect Place to Watch Wimbledon in London

By Alex Noble

Wimbledon is one of Britain’s most iconic and traditional sporting occasions, which has the romantic power to turn even the most un-sporty people, into die-hard tennis fans for a fortnight. It’s a fabulously British affair that successfully highlights all the best (and worst) aspects of BST, mainly due to the weather’s infamous unpredictability.  It really […]

Oris, who opened their first boutique in Zurich last Friday with a launch celebration consisting of exquisite gin cocktails, their range of impressive watches on display and Switzerland winning the World Cup match against Serbia, meant the celebrations went late on into the night.

Acqua Di Parma Afternoon Tea at the Baglioni

By Alex Noble

There’s some aspects of British culture that do make me chuckle, such as taking euphemisms to the extreme, forcing barristers to wear wigs, having carpets within bathrooms and of course, our strange obsession with tea.  Afternoon tea was another concept that for a while I couldn’t quite grasp; It almost seemed like a bit of a […]

Dapper Evening Out with Heineken & The Human Library

By Alex Noble

Well chaps, I’m not going to lie to you, this one’s a little different. I’m always up for broadening my horizons; you know the old leap of faith where you choose the ‘louder’ pocket square or indulge in a rollneck for the first time but this post is actually nothing to do with either. In fact, it’s […]
