WHAT Austin Reed Gentleman’s Day
WHEN 26th November 2010
WHERE Newbury, West Berkshire 

Newbury the Racecorse
Last month, I was invited by Austin Reed to take part in The Newbury Racecourse. As one of the judges for the Gentlemen's day winter style competition in conjunction with Austin Reed-Newbury's first ever fashion partnership offering best dressed man membership to their newly launched Q club. I was so honored to take part and search for the best dressed men on the day.  Furthermore, Amanda and I were scouting the course for candidates for the Winter Style competition to find the best dressed gentleman, with plenty of great prizes up for grabs including an Austin Reed Q Club membership.
On Friday November 26th, The spectacular day began with me being interviewed by the ITV. Gentlemen’s Day was so successful and it encouraged every man to dress in their winter best with prizes including annual membership to Austin Reed’s brand new Q Club for the most fashionable fellows, a refreshing change from another Saturday of DIY or Christmas shopping. Gentlemen’s Day offered the great winter escape - a casual yet fashionable day to catch up with friends.
Newbury Racecourse are making special room for men this winter at the races. Approximately 30,000 people were expected to descend on the racecourse for the 3 day fixture which includes the celebrated Hennessy Gold Cup. One of the highlights of the jump racing calendar.
Newbury Racecourse Gentlemen's Day is a response to the Ladies Days that have dominated the summer racing season and aims to take the crown of racing style from Ladies Days by hosting the largest Gentlemen’s Day in the racing calendar.

As a judge i was seeking a Gentleman who clearly made an impression, had great details in his outfit yet looks effortless. As me and Amanda scouted for Gents around the Horserace we found roughly 10-15 well dressed men and put them forward to the competition.

Charles Tyrwhitt White Shirt Challenge

WHAT Charles Tyrwhitt White Shirt Challenge
WHEN 29th January 2012
' Charles Tyrwhitt White Shirt Challenge '

So anyone who knows me, pretty much has figured out that im addicted to shirts. Shirts are an essential wear to any man and his outfits. Charles Tyrwhitt is a British multi-channel retailer selling men's and women's shirts and other clothing.
Founded as a mail order company in 1986 by Nicholas Charles Tyrwhitt Wheeler while he was a student at Bristol University. In 1997, the company opened its first store in Jermyn Street, London. Its flagship store is now at No. 98-100 Jermyn Street.
Okay every man know good shirts make you feel good and with CT offers good selection of plain white and coloured shirts in a variety of styles to suit both business and pleasure. From different fits (classic, fitted, tailored) and you can choose your sleeve length too.  What's even better is that the price is so reasonable and with frequent special offers you can keep your wardrobe stocked with crisp shirts without breaking the bank.
Check out my photos where I've kept the white shirt quiet classic and effortless. We know accessories can play a magnificent role in making and breaking an outfit. So I've decided to play with the preppy braces and nerdy glasses to give it that quintessential - old school look and rocking that 'Fro too. 

The second outfit can be a dinner / meeting look worn with a nice tailored bright tuxedo and pocket square. You can have the collars opened or decided to throw on that bow tie/ tie if needed. 

Look three, the bow tie look which can be worn with an nice v neck jumper or even to show off that shirt a tweed waistcoat over it. 

Look four, keeping it simple and chic by wearing a scarf inside the shirt - tres french. Most men actually don't wear scarves underneath any shirt but I think they should. Its different but any man can pull off that look.

Look five, dressing it up with a cream tailored button blazer. That messy bow tie to give it that effortless look and finally that pointed pocket square.
 A special thanks to Charles Tyrwhitt online team & EshΓ© Brown and propeller net.

Last Night, the super amazing team; Surgery PR threw a celebration party to welcome Luke Evans to the Police Eyewear family. The Hollywood superstar Luke Evans has just been signed as the UK Brand Ambassador for Police eyewear. Shown below wearing Police Sunglasses with their original trademark blue lenses.

Luke is certainly the perfect ambassador with his strong appeal to fashion conscious men of all ages. Following in the footsteps of other great brand ambassadors such as Bruce Willis, George Clooney and David Beckham. (Well done)
Police has progressed to become a hugely iconic brand and favoured due to its cutting edge, understated and sophisticated style. The range of Police sunglasses have a distinctively sporty and casual edge but retain a high level typical of Italian chic. The sunglasses are never ostentatious or too overstated but have a confident styling that keeps the designs highly wearable, practical and incredibly stylish. The frames are designed to suit and flatter a wide range of face shapes and are extremely well constructed to ensure durability. 

Celebrities attending the event included Luke Evans (of course), Aidan Turner, Oliver Jackson Cohen, Jay Camilleri, Rita Ora, Noelle Reno, Georgie Okel, BB, Milo Cordell (The Big Pink), Robbie Furze (The Big Pink), Mary Charteris (DJ) and Leah Weller.
