Dutch brand Suitsupply are most certainly a favourite of mine on The Gentleman Select. Consistently they have produced many stand out pieces over the years.

A wonderful alternative to linen and indeed perhaps the perfect answer for that upcoming summer wedding you have on the cards.
Tarraco is the Latin name of the Catalonian port city of Tarragona in Spain. Fast forward a year or two and it is now the name of a stylish new SEAT SUV to hit the market.

Everyday we are out and about in the elements. Perhaps heading to work, going shopping or off to a meeting. Undoubtedly at some point you also will have been caught in a Spring downpour. Sitting in damp clothes for the rest of the day is certainly no pleasure but it is avoidable with some preparation. My recommendation, the new Tornado umbrella from Fulton. A stylish, functional accessory, it’s perfect for keeping you protected from any Spring shower that appears by surprise.

Recently here at The Gentleman Select I had a closer look at some of the key pieces you can expect to see and moreover want in your wardrobe come sunny season.
When visiting a restaurant most of us go somewhere local or perhaps jump on a train to the next city. I can say however I have never boarded a plane and flew to a restaurant destination. This was indeed precisely what I did when renowned chef Nico Simeone flew myself and 69 other lucky passengers to Belfast to experience the latest addition to his Six by Nico restaurant portfolio. On the menu was the six course “Chippie” theme. One which I couldn’t wait to try.
