Harry’s – Shave with Pride

I get so exited around Pride Month because some great retailers get behind the LGBT+ causes with gusto, and Harry’s is no exception. I was thrilled to get this through the post not only because their shave gel and razor is the best I have used to date – and I am very nearly run… Read more »

Catwalk to Social: LFWM SS19

Whilst many of the menswear press are in Florence for Pitti U’omo, my mind is still in London Fashion Week: Men‘s mode, and musing of what will be coming next in Milan and Paris to match or rival the creative and commercial trends emerging for SS19.
