ThatIsBeyond…The dreaded return to the Gym.

ThatIsBeyond…The dreaded return to the Gym. I enjoy the Gym, but sometimes life gets in the way! I am a creature of habit, so when I do go I truly commit to going! But in the past when life has got in the way… That has been the end of the road. But not this […]

ThatIsBeyond… Reading In betweed the lines!

I love a tweed jacket. I guess it’s partly heritage, being from the West Country, I was certainly hyper aware of this style growing up and It was also my first awareness of tailoring (weddings and funerals excluded). There is something aspirational about a tweed design, it takes a certain kind of guy to wear […]

Thatisbeyond… Another Suitcase In Another Hall.

In my work, I have to do very little travel. And to be honest I don’t travel abroad all that much for fun either! So it is a new thing to see my suitcase packed for a second time in less than a week! Ready to head off tomorrow to Copenhagen, for meetings and team […]

ThatIsBeyond… Ted’s grooming room on Berwick street opening!

I was lucky enough to attend the opening weekend of Ted’s Grooming Room on Berwick Street, and get myself a perfect pre-holiday haircut and wet shave! I attended the opening of their Covent Garden branch before, and I really loved the experience there too (so much so that I got my haircut a couple of […]

ThatIsBeyond… A review of David Gandy’s underwear!

I want to take a few moments to discuss the David Gandy Underwear range. I was quite excited to get my hands on part of the new (ish) range. There has been a lot of hype surrounding it, and David Gandy is my ultimate style icon. His classy and debonair sense of fashion appeals to […]

ThatIsBeyond… A close shave technique

A couple of years ago I watched a YouTube tutorial about shaving, and for a while it became my mantra for getting a close shave. It is the NESW method, like the points on a compass, and whilst it was a little time consuming, it did ensure a closer shave. It’s generally accepted that you […]

ThatIsBeyond…”The Apprentice” fever – a sharply dressed bunch!

I love the apprentice. Yes it’s about business, and yes they somehow manage to find some of the most dislikeable, ignorant & egotistical business minds, but on top of all of that the trend has been that we are seeing better and better dressing from the male candidates. I looked up from episode 2 last […]

Thatisbeyond…Autumn Layers

It was that time… That time when you know it’s probably for the best that you pack away the Bermuda shorts and little vests and reach into the depths of your stored winter wear! I love winter, and so I hate to get rid of anything that might “one day be useful”. So let’s see, […]

Thatisbeyond… A mile in someone else’s shoes

They say before you make judgement, that you should walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. This is a mantra that I use for life, but also my development as an recently I’ve been wondering about whether the shoes and clothes that I wear can help me develop as a person, also. As well […]
