Last newsletter, we talked about shaving soap and caring for your skin. We promised we would touch on caring for your skin with little effort and how this will help you keep a youthful appearance. The process is quite simple, and if you can add a couple of minutes to your preparation time you will impressed with the results. If you ever experience skin irritation, please see a specialist as soon as possible. Always test on a small amount of skin when trying new products to ensure there is no reaction.
Robin Bell, Tim Rowe and Ben St Lawrence – three of our sponsored athletes are always being complimented on their youthful appearance. Hampered by at least 3 (quick) showers a day it’s easy for their skin to dry out, along with air conditioning in their offices. So how do they keep up their youthful appearance? We attribute it to them looking after themselves… how? Continue reading →
If you have just been to dinner and the drunk person next to you has splattered you with their spaghetti bolognese, dont panic – there is a chance that your tie may be saved!
The easiest solution is to ensure the stain is removed from your necktie having it dry cleaned by a specialist as soon as possible (this is not fool proof as some of their cleaning agents may not be suitable for your fabric – furthermore, a silk tie will lose its shine after dry cleaning) - preferably within 24 hours of it being stained. Silk is delicate. Cleaning and pressing a silk tie is a specialist skill and you can easily ruin your tie if you don’t know what you are doing. Some common stains are: Alcohol, Grease, Coffee or Ink stains from a pen. Here are some steps if you want to attend to the stain yourself. Continue reading →
Selecting a Leather versus a Wooden cufflink box really comes down to a matter of choice. Some of our clients like to match their cufflink box to the furniture in their bedroom and others like more of a contrast.
If you have a dark fire place or furniture in your room, you may like to choose a wood or leather that matches with the furniture. Alternatively you may like to contrast it. Since our cufflink boxes are meant to be a feature, we like the contrast a little more, but totally understand your desire to match. That’s why we keep a diverse range. The choice is yours!
Plenty of guys have a number of pairs of cufflinks but nowhere to store them. They are all thrown in together into a sock drawer or a small box only to be scratched, damaged or just end up being hard to find.
65% of malebox clients are women buying a cufflink and accessories box for the man in their life. Sick and tired of rummaging through 10 pairs of cufflinks and not being to find that other matching pair? If you want to be stylish, organised and tidy you need a proper cufflink box.
Cufflinks are a class addition to your attire, so don’t throw them in some box altogether where they may become scratched or damaged. Wearing scratched cufflinks is like wearing dirty shoes with a classy suit. Treat your cufflinks with care and you will enjoy them and keep them for the rest of your life.
Do you wear the same cufflinks every day? Wouldn’t you prefer to be singled out for being a little different in your office? You put on a new tie and it looks great. Rather than wearing a pair of old cufflinks why not spruce them up with a new pair that matches exactly with your tie? People will notice!
Many men often ask me what they should wear with a french cuff shirt – in other words what tie matches with what cufflinks? It goes without saying that cufflinks can only be worn with a french cuff shirt. Under no circumstance can you wear cufflinks with a normal button up sleeve on your shirt! The best way to look smart is basically to match your tie to your cufflinks. For example, if you are wearing a striped blue tie, try and match it up with a blue pair of cufflinks which match at least one colour in the tie. Alternatively look for a striped pair of cufflinks which may contain a number of similar colours to the tie. If your tie has blue and pink in it – go with a pair of cufflinks which have blue and pink in it. I think you get the picture. If you only have a few pairs of cufflinks, make sure you get your hands on a classic pair which go with absolutely anything, like a plain pair of matt or shiny silver cufflinks like the malebox classic range. A plain silver pair of cufflinks can be worn with almost anything. Make sure the bottom of your tie goes to your belt buckle. Don’t forget, if your cufflinks have a silver or gold finish, be sure to match that with the colour of your belt buckle and your watch band.
