ThatIsBeyond… Kennies boxer briefs, mental health and the models that I want to be mates with!

It’s not every day that you can truly say that you have an affinity with a brand. There can be lots of variables that get in the way. One of the key issues being tackled in recent months is male mental health and I think, that when it comes to fashion, I am greatly affected […]

ThatIsbeyond… I never win anything! (Ham Yard Hotel prize breaks my losing streak)

I am a serial loser. Raffles, the Grand National, The lottery – I lose them all. BUT my losing streak was brought to a 33 year halt when mirculously I finally won something. The “something” in question was a 1950’s fancy dress party and the prize was so good that I kept it for over […]

ThatIsBeyond… ion8 mad at it!

One of the frustrations with summer commuting is the need to carry a water bottle, which invariably leaks all over your gym kit, important work documents, laptop (insert wet item here!) So when I discovered the Ion8 from http://www.leakproof.com I decided to put the technology to the test! My commute from Kent involves a 30 […]

ThatIsBeyond…Supporting your tackle with HOM

With all of the trials and tribulations of Marathon training I had to take some time to explore the right underwear to protect my tackle on the big day! Style, fabric, anti-chafe and airiness are all factors that needed to be considered, when committing to the pants that I will be wearing for the 26.2 […]

ThatIsBeyond… BeautyPie Skincare so good, that you can share it with your wife!

My wife has been raving about her new skincare regime. So much so, that I thought I had better try it for myself. With the shift work that I do, it had to be easy to stick to, and I NEED to see results quickly or I often get bored! Three quarters of the products […]

ThatIsBeyond… Self-conscious

A self-conscious man is not what I wish to be, but a self-conscious man I undoubtably am! In the past week a cataclysm of telling events occurred, and this was surely fate at work… but it wasn’t until today that I got some sort of clarity on what this all meant. So I had to […]

ThatIsBeyond…The @boxmenswear internet trolls

This post is a kneejerk reaction. No doubt it will generate its own comment feed of hate, but I have OFFICIALLY had enough. Internet trolling is now so prevalent that I think it’s a cultural issue that needs to be nipped in the bud. Often the younger generations get the blame, but not being comfortable […]

ThatIsBeyond… What’s new on the Men-ü?

Well it’s a new year, and that means a whole host of new products to get trying! And top of the this January is this Citrus and mint shower gel from the Men’s skincare experts at Men-U. This Ultra-concentrated liquid is really quite clever, it’s a viscous formulation that actually feels sticky to the touch […]

ThatIsBeyond… Keep CALM and carry on to Murdock London

The manly thing is to NOT talk about your feelings, Right? WRONG. It’s tough to circumnavigate life, feeling alone and not being able to express how you feel. It’s also incredible that you can spend your life surrounded by people who love and care for you, but you can’t reveal your feelings to them because […]

ThatIsBeyond… The Haircut – A Rite of Passage

Just this weekend I took my two and a half year old son to get his haircut. This is only the second time he has had it cut, and after the first time we approached our second visit with a little trepidation. The first cut was a spur of the moment, spontaneous dive into a […]
