NEW BRAND 

Year dot clothing 

One of my friends put me in touch with this Brand who have recently launched and I’m glad he did. 

As you all know I’m always searching for new brands especially ones in the UK. These guys have something special not only is their logo different and unique. They have limited edition T shirts with numbers and rose coloured print. I chose 26 as pictured wearing on this post. I went for medium. they are slim fit so if yir broad I would suggest go for the large. I’m over 6ft and the medium was the perfect length. The limited edition T shirt is £30 which is a good price considering you won’t see anyone else wearing this and that’s what we want right? To be destinctive and to be the first to have something. 

I’ve also got their black signature T which I will add to this post at a later date but I haven’t had chance to take a great shot. As soon as it arrived I wore this T shirt on a night out which tells you I must have liked it a lot.

Matte Face Black Maniere De Voir Watch 

I’m all about accessories wether it’s wrist beads, rings or watches. You will rarely catch me without something.

I really like my watches and this doesn’t mean they have to be really expensive it is what ever you like and catches your eye. For me this Matte face black watch caught my eye and it is great for everyday use. It looks really smart and looks more expensive then what it is. I love black watches and have another all black one. Harder to see the time admittedly but does look incredible and let’s face it this is a fashion watch.

Mankind 

A male grooming website stocking products ranging from skin, hair, body and more.

It was great to receive the Mankind Grooming Box ‘The Confidence Edition’ this is full of skin and hair essentials with brands such as Nanogen, Neville and TIGI.

I was intrigued to try some of these products as I am always experimenting to see whats out there for men. 

For me my hair is a big thing and I love to keep it looking good. The Nanogen shampoo and conditioner 5-in-1 was great I only had to use this once for my hair products to be rinsed out. Usually it takes me 2 or 3 attempts  to get my hair products out. This Nanogen shampoo and conditioner is also a thickening treatment which lets face it all guys want to have thick hair for life. 

I also used the Jack Black Sleek Finish Texture cream to help style my hair. I used this product on my hair when it was slightly damp then used a comb and hairdryer to style it into place. You only need a small amount and rub it into your hands then thoroughly rub it into your hair. This product uses organic ingredients so all really good proteins and vitamins for your hair.

When it comes to shaving I rarely clean shave. For a start I can’t grow a full beard never have done all my life. So what I do have I just use keep graded, trimming it weekly. For me when I do this it’s really important to have a clean face and get rid of any dead or dirty skin. So I have been using the Neville Rescue scrub. This product is great to use before shaving. It has volcanic and corn granuals to exfoliate & Cocoa butter to soften the skin. All you have to do is wet your skin apply a small amount and apply all over your face massaging it in. Then simply rinse it off with warm water. I then rinse with cold water to close my pores dry my face then I’m ready to shave. Really enjoy using this product weekly.

Link below to the Mankind Grooming box only £25 hope you guys enjoy it as much as me.

TOM CRIDLAND

TOM CRIDLAND

So glad I had the chance to work with Tom Cridland a very unique brand. They are a sustainable fashion brand known all over the world.

They made clothes for the likes of Leanardo DiCaprio, Kendrick Lemar and Daniel Craig. The list of top celebrities goes on and just shows what a huge brand they are. 

They have their 30 year collection which all the clothing is guaranteed for 3 decades! Tom Cridland also have a great collection of trousers.

I chose to try one of the Entrepreneur’s shirts. For me you can’t go wrong with a smart white shirt so I went for the Dove white shirt. As soon as this shirt arrived I can tell it’s made with real high quality and is going to last. You can mix this up wearing this shirt as a more casual look or a smart look. The shirts cost £80 but as I stated already they will last for a long time so it’s worth it.

LOOK OF THE WEEK

LOOK OF THE WEEK

Maniere De Voir 

Such a privilege to collaborate with this brand. This weeks look focuses on the suede stone biker jacket.

First time I have ever worn Maniere De Voir and they didn’t let me down. The quality is amazing. This suede jacket not only feels well made but looks like a really expensive jacket. I’ve only had this jacket a week now and everyone keeps asking me where I got this from. I am a huge Jacket fan anyway so this is my number 1 right now. 

I’m also wearing their their extreme distressed black jeans. Again the quality is really good and the fit is perfect. Being 6ft 3 sometimes ordering jeans online can be a nightmare. I have waist 32 leg 32 and you can still crop them if needed which I do with most of mine anyway. I loved the rips on these jeans I am all about the distressed look when I comes to my jeans. I am also wearing one their jumpers which I will do another post in a few weeks.

Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa

Aloha!

Well where to begin with this amazing hotel….

From the moment we checked in I could tell this place would be special. It’s located on a huge resort with its own complimentary private bus that takes you to all the hotels around the resort. 

While checking in they provided lots of information on restaurants to go to and things to do that are a must while staying in Maui. The resort is huge so you will need a map but you will soon get used to your surroundings. The Staff were really helpful from the moment we stepped in to the hotel. They also gave us Leis on arrival which is traditional greeting in Hawaii. 

The room was absolutely spotless and had everything you need. The guys will bring your bags down and again they are super friendly, so be nice and tip them! I did manage to upgrade for the last few days of my stay and it made all the difference! The view from the balcony was just insane it was like looking at a painting you have to see it to believe it.

Stepping outside was like walking into paradise, the palm trees and pool with the beach a stone throw away. There are a few pools to choose from; the main one has a waterfall leading through to the cave bar this pool is always very busy. There is also a kids pool the other side by the slide. I stayed around the Hyatt regency club pool most of the time as it was more of a relaxed vibe. There is also a small ‘adults only’ inifty pool looking out to the sea which is amazing! But get there early to claim your bed although you can reserve at a cost. 

The beach is not private so no sun loungers but you can take the towels anyway and it’s rarely busy. I would definitely recommend hiring a beach cabana for the day it makes all the difference. You have your own waiter that brings ice cold water on a regular basis and gets anything else you want at an extra cost. Even though I love the beach it’s a nightmare laying on the towels, sand just sticks everywhere! The cabana is the way forward. The beaches are pure white sand and if I could recommend anything it would be to lay down near 7ish and watch the sunset. It was honestly the most breaktaking thing I’ve ever seen in my life! 

The hotel has everything you need. 

– Fitness… If your in to your fitness like me then it has a gym over looking the beach. Be warned this gets busy as Americans also love their fitness!  It has a spa you can use for $25 each it’s really nice with a luxury feel located next door to the gym. I used the spa to shower etc on my last day as we had to check out early as late check out was not possible. 

– Food… It has a few restaurants on site, I would highly recommend Japengo and I will be doing another blog post on this restaurant. They play live music at the restaurants which gives it a really nice atmosphere. Son’z steakhouse/ swan court breakfast are the same restaurant and the setting is spectacular so peaceful with the lake with Swans, ducks and flamingos in. Food wise I preferred Japengo I didn’t try the breakfast in swan court so could not comment. They have pool side bars that do happy hour so if your after a snack during the day I’d wait until happy hour for discounted food and drink on selected items. Unfortunately I didn’t try the grotto bar it’s hidden away in the cave which is so cool. You must try the Hawaiian shaved ice so refreshing and really cool it’s located by the main pool with a few colourful benches to sit on and enjoy the view of the sea.

– Entertainment… like I said before they always have live singers/ musicians in the restaurants in the evening. Round the bars they play music throughout the day and have television screens if your missing your sports. A big highlight of the hotel is Drums of the Pacific. You get guests from all over the island come to this show. They have their traditional dances and fire acts everything you think of from Hawaii culture. Again I didn’t get to do this but this was out of choice I walked past a few times and it looked incredible but for the price it didn’t tempt me enough. They sit you on big benches with other guests and I think the food is basic but again I didn’t go so I might have missed out! Believe it or not this hotel even has parrots and penguins!! Real crowd pleaser especially for the kids you can watch them feed the penguins in the morning. I must admit every time I walked past I had to stop and admire them. They are so cute and funny to watch.

– Shops… the hotel has shops everything you need and more. So you can grab yourself some souvenirs, coffee or go book a trip. They also have local stools come in on certain days to sell traditional Hawaii souvenirs.

I could go on forever about this hotel honestly best place I have been in my life! The sunsets is the most memorable thing I must say and so romantic. So anything from honeymoon to family holiday this hotel has it all. The staff are the friendliest I’ve ever come across in any hotel I’ve stayed in.

I will be doing further right ups on the restaurants and the island itself. I’m also working on a YouTube video which will be released soon on the hotel.

NEW BRAND 

Nova London 

A Uk based clothing brand who pride themselves with prestige attire & quality clothing but at affordable prices.

These guys sent me over the pink shirt and the khaki trucker cap. The T shirt is £26.99 the hat is £14.99 so both great prices.

The shirt is such a good fit! I’m all about T shirts showing off your physique. Pink can be a hard colour to wear for men but I think the white stripe down the sleeve and small logo breaks it up and it’s really nice. A lot of people complemented this pink T shirt.

The hat is one of the highest quality I have had so far and again people keep asking me where I got this from. You can tell these guys put effort into making their clothes.

Got2b hair products 

Every man is different when it comes to styling their hair whether it’s the wet look or dry look.

There is so much more men’s hair products around now and it’s hard to find the right one that suits your hair.

My hair is wavy which most people don’t realise. When going out I like to look my best with not a hair out of place. 

I use Got2b styling products to hold my curls. I use the bodyfying cream gel and the blasting freezing spray

My Routine

After I come out the shower I dry my hair and straighten it using the hair dryer. Once in place I then take a small handful of the bodyfying cream gel this gives the affect of thicker looking hair but only use a small amount. I then use the hairdryer and comb to push hair into place now the bodyfying cream gel is in. Once it’s in place I finish the hair off with the blasting freeze spray. Trust me when I say this your hair will not move even in the wind and when sweating. People always ask me how it stays in place after a workout or at football training. I swear by this hairspray.

You can find these products in Superdrug and all the supermarkets so it’s easy to find. They also do mini versions if you travel to.

Really happy to be working with these guys. This look is a smart casual look wearing their dove white shirt. The shirt itself is really nice and made from luxury Italian cotton.

If you wanted to smarten it up this would also look great with chinos and loafers.
