ThatIsBeyond…It’s time to #talkballs.

It’s not very often that I #talkballs, on my blog! But this is a message that all of us guys need to take on board. Talk Balls is the newest campaign from UK male cancer charity ORCHID. It’s really simple, the message is that we must try to talk about male issues. And the best […]

ThatIsBeyond…Neil Patrick Harris you are my style icon of 2015

I didn’t want this to be ” just another Oscars post” but there is no escaping that the red carpet is the place to see some great men’s formal wear. I didn’t watch the ceremony itself, but I have to say that there was one man (who seemingly changed outfits a million times) who managed […]

ThatIsBeyond… Why there is a Spring In My Step!

In the swing of London Fashion Week, it is about time I let you all know what I think! The release of Spring Fashion is when it becomes a really exciting time for me. Away go the yards of heavy wools and layers upon layers upon layers! And instead we begin to see the textures […]

ThatIsBeyond…Jack Black – Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser (Aloe & Sage Leaf)

This cleanser came as part of a travel grooming kit (Jet Set Traveller £22) and over the last few months I have been testing the individual components. This post is about the 88ml Pure Science blend cleanser, and it really is a joy to use! The formulation is mid way between a gel and a […]

ThatIsBeyond… Menswear at the Whats On Stage Awards.

I have just been lucky enough to spend my evening at the Whats On Stage Awards, hosted at the Prince of Wales Theatre by Mel Giedroyc and Steve Furst. What struck me (as well as the cream of west end talent) was the vast array of amazing fashion on show. Preparing for this event, I […]

ThatIsBeyond… A little bit of love this Valentines Week!

I moved to London in 2002. I knew that it was where I needed to be, but London did not welcome me with open arms, quite to contrary, I didn’t know who I was at that time in that space. I had traded village life in the West Country for the bright lights of theatreland, […]

ThatIsBeyond…A Smart Casual Look #OOTD

Today’s look is one that has to transcend internal meetings and client introductions. It’s also freezing, and I have an evening theatre trip to take some clients to… This outfit needs to work hard! I have started with a blue/ marl base layer, a simple v neck t-shirt that adds texture to an otherwise basic […]

ThatIsBeyond…The shave shop.

It’s always nice to receive a gift. So I was really grateful to receive a veritable trove of unique presents from the gentlemen at The Shave Shop. They kindly passed on to me some products that they thought I might like to try out and boy were they right! This is a review of the […]

ThatIsBeyond…Any excuse to dress up!

Some items of clothing have the ability to make you feel amazing. This can be anything from a decent pair of pants to a bespoke suit, a shiny pair of shoes to a raggedy old t-shirt. Mainly I want to talk about my special formalwear items, that make me feel like the best man that […]

ThatIsBeyond… January Grooming Favourites.

Welcome. This is my January favourites for male grooming products. 2015 has been about being consistent in my grooming regime and ensuring I am taking the best care possible of …Me! I have to say that this week I have had a rebellious week, where every pore is itching to become a spot and I […]
