By Alex Noble

When going on holiday, many chaps don’t count swim shorts as a holiday essential; in fact they’re often seen as an afterthought, and something to buy on the cheap – you may want to rethink this tactic.  Dressing for the beach, or pool is not an easy thing to do for us blokes – we have one […]

Mr Motif Pocket Squares

By Alex Noble

Some chaps like to dress functionally; you know the Asics Trainers with tailoring, Cargo pants with a million different pockets kind of looks; and I get it…In fact, no, I don’t. Frankly, it looks appalling and for me, style should never be sacrificed for functionality.  I imagine functional dressers become especially unstuck when it comes to […]

Choosing the Right Sunglasses for Your Face Shape

By Alex Noble

When it comes to the math of sunglasses, the formula is in fact very simple. Face shape X frame shape = perfect combination. Some Chappers will venture outwith this formula, and the results are often not pretty; chiseled jawlines masked, or fat faces enhanced, the sunglasses go from a statement accessory to an impeding facial […]

Owning the Oxford

By Adam

Stamping an authority on a piece of clothing is not for the faint hearted and pretty tough considering we’ve been wearing clothing of some sort for thousands of years. It can be done. We’ve seen the likes of Thomas Pink launch their White Shirt Bar and Burberry own the Mac, but they are big-name brands. […]

10 Spring Essentials for a Dapper Chapper

By Alex Noble

Us Brits have got a tremendous attitude when it comes to most things that present us with adversity – Keep Calm and Carry On.  That said, we’re also exceptionally naive. Naive in the sense that as soon as it hits April, we believe spring will be in bloom and before long, temperatures will rocket, the rain will subside […]

Pantherella and Scott-Nichol’s Seasonal Collection of SS18

By Alex Noble

Socks or No Socks As we approach the summer, and the supposedly warmer months of the year, layers are shed, materials become more lightweight and socks are often removed from copious amounts of outfits. Admittedly, we see this as acceptable when abroad, but in the grand scheme of things, when sock makers such as Pantherella exist, […]
