Wedding

Are you sick of the Royal Wedding yet ? Headlines everywhere & all those photos & speculations ! Goodness gracious me, please leave the couple alone & wish them having blissful courtship.

Having said so, I think it’s the only time a man needs a piece of finely exquisitely tailored suit.

Sunspel

An understated brand that offers exquisite under garments for gentlemen ( mainly ).

The La Perla for men, as I would call it; Not a trendy/funky line, but definitely has its British swankiness & heritage. Like cashmere underwear, it’s the sensation that matters.

Bright & rather trashy frame – It’s summer, let’s have some fun.
