Summer Sale!

June 28, 2010

It is now late June and just so happens to be my favourite time of the year – it’s Sale time! There are some brilliant sales on right now with offers of up to 50% off as all the big brands try to get rid of the Spring/Summer collection and bring in the new Autumn/Winter range. I’ve already spent a fair bit of money on the Reiss sale. I’ve had my eye on this casual jacket for a while but it has always been outside of my price range. However, I bought it for £79, down from £159, now that’s a saving!

Parklife Festival 2010

June 22, 2010

Grab your tent and wellies, it’s that time of the year again – it’s Festival season! Tickets were sold in record time out for the hotly anticipated Parklife Festival 2010 situated in England’s Manchester. The Parklife festival takes place annually in Manchester’s Platt Fields with this year featuring over 40 acts across 6 stages with a line up that consisted of names such as Friendly Fires and Booka Shade. There was a real emphasis on value for money, top quality acts and other kinds of madness planned in order to kick start Summer with a bang. There are still opportunities to acquire tickets through competitions in the Bench Live website for other festivals such as Melt and Creamfields. The opportunity to win festival tickets will still be appealing to many.  I will certainly try to win a ticket. For more information about the Parklife Festival and other music events, check out the Bench Live website – my favourite place to get the latest news and views from the music world.

The 2010 Football World Cup has got underway; therefore not for the first time this post has a football theme. Some of the greatest players in the World have descended upon the southern most tip of Africa to ply their trade. However, the life of a footballer does not solely involve the kicking of the ball. They also have to perform some strenuous modelling. These are some of the best dressed men in Football.

Bench Live!

June 8, 2010

One of my favourite clothing brands has just built a new micro site called Bench Live (www.bench-live.com). This new website has been launched to increase Bench’s brand awareness and help Bench promote their music heritage that they are heavily involved in. In recent years Bench has been associated with Festivals such as Manchester’s Parklife Festival, Creamfields and Liverpool Sound City. I’ve had a browse through the website and it looks great. Bench Live provides you with information about forthcoming festivals and music events. You can purchase tickets to these events through this site and the opportunity to take part in competitions in order to win free tickets. There are interviews with music stars such as Lisa Lashes, Paul Van Dyke and The Sunshine Underground. There are fashion tips to what to wear to these events with a link back to the Bench Shop website. Basically everything you need if you’re a clothes and music fan…which I am.

As it is approaching summer I have decided to post my ideal outfit for this season. After looking through various brands, I decided to go with Reiss as their new SS10 collection is pretty cool. I think this outfit not only looks great but also looks really comfortable. Sometimes comfort is sacrificed for style but not this time. I’ve gone for a casual look but there still remains a level of sophistication that i like. I don’t usually wear hats but I think once again hats will be huge this summer and I’m really digging this one. The casual jacket will be ideal for protection against the chill of the summer nights.

As we approach Summer and the temperatures increase I feel that I have nowhere near enough Polo Shirts – my preference for this weather. As I was scouring the internet looking to refresh my wardrobe, I came across the Gant online store – one of my favourite brands. The Gant premium lifestyle brand combines American casualness with European elegance that launched all the way back in 1949. So they must know a thing or two. Their range of Men’s Polo Shirts is really exciting, consisting of vibrant colours that are perfect for the Summer. No one wants to wear blacks and greys at this time of year, so here are a couple of Gant polo shirts for men to brighten up your day.
