“A man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them.” – Hardy Amies
We have just wrapped up our Men's Pop Up and from the promotion we realised that men take as much care in the way they look and how they groom themselves and are very much interested in local fashion and trends.
So socks, ties, boxers and cheap cologne will no longer do - treat the guys with as much love as they would you!
We're sharing a few gift ideas to ensure that special guy in your life, dad, brother, husband, uncle even granddad remains as stylish as he feels! Not just for this weekend but for the month (we have coined it the month of men) or any special time in their lives.
