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. Happily once again, I can say they have knocked it out the park by presenting the worlds lightest suit. 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. A few weeks back with The Everyday Man, I attended the UK media launch of the SEAT Tarraco at Amber Lakes in Wraysbury and got behind the wheel of this new model within the range.
The purpose of footwear is to protect us against the elements and the ground we walk on. It is equally important however that they are crafted with passion, look good and will last as well. Enter Unseen Footwear. A brand that is the epitome of minimalistic style and quality.
It’s important to look and feel good no matter what you are doing, exercise included. Time and time again however I’am sure we find ourselves showing up at the gym or heading out for a run in gear that looks a little worn out and dated to say the least. Thankfully French brand Satisfy exists. A beautiful blend of luxury fashion and function that has taken what you wear when exercising to a whole new level.
The festive time of year is all about spending time with family and friends whilst enjoying good food and drink in the best of surroundings. Of course once the Christmas turkey is all done and you’ve had one to may drams on New Years Eve, what better way to blow off the cobwebs and kick off 2019 than a fantastic day at Musselburgh Racecourse for the Betway New Year’s Day Race meeting.
Walking around the chilly streets of Glasgow in winter there are many tempting bars and restaurants beckoning you in with their warm, tempting food and appetising cocktails on offer. One such establishment which has been high on the list to try at The Gentleman Select is The Spiritualist Bar & Restaurant in which this month, I was very lucky to pop in and see the exquisite venue for myself.
Established on London’s famous Jermyn Street in 1898, T.M.Lewin has been helping men dress to impress for over 100 years. Their fantastic e-commerce set-up and some 100 U.K stores, including new sites opening around the world in Europe, Singapore and Australia, offers up a wide and rich variety of high quality shirts, impeccably tailored suits and jackets, with dapper accessories to match. Here at The Gentleman Select I was lucky enough to link-up with this tailoring titan to explore some of their key, new season pieces. Items that are perfect for everyday use, perhaps a special occasion or if you are dressing to impress. T.M.Lewin certainly has it all.
As a frequent traveller here at The Gentleman Select I know all to well the difficulty in trying to eat and exercise properly whilst always being on the move. It can be so easy to simply grab some fast food and bypass the gym area because you are tired and want to rest up however continuing with those choices can be a slippy road to go down and even harder to come back up. Thankfully one particular brand, Pullman Hotels, is driving forward Wellness Tourism with a passion, aiming to get visitors making healthy choices when they travel. Recently I paid a visit to their stunning site at Paris Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport for an exciting two days of healthy living, exploring their invigorating anti jet lag programme and spending time in the company of its creator and Pullman brand ambassador, Sarah Hoey.
A few weeks back I was lucky enough to spend an overnight in The Edinburgh Grand, a luxurious series of 5 star apartments at the heart of Edinburgh city centre. As part of the Chris Stewart Group portfolio along with the Old Town Chambers and Merchiston Residence, it is a venue I had heard much about and here at The Gentleman Select I couldn’t wait to visit.
As we go about our daily lives we constantly change between smart and casual outfits. From dress trousers to jeans. Tailored blazers to leather jackets, we are always altering our look. There is however an item which we wear consistently, everyday, without fail, well at least most of us do… I’am of course talking about underwear. The first item you put on in the morning and the last thing you take off at night, it is imperative your underwear is super comfortable. One brand which is delivering exactly this is Hamilton and Hare in which recently I was lucky enough to check out some stand out pieces in their very relaxing, luxurious range.
