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 …

Thatisbeyond… the shortlist of swim shorts (to be seen in).

As we approach the end of the season, it’s finally time to look back on the swim shorts that have punctuated this glorious summer! I’m not afraid to admit that my swimwear game has been very strong in 2018. I have experimented with pattern colour and of course style – and along the way I …

ThatIsBeyond… A Taste for Change.

As I get older, it becomes abudently clear that my tastes are constantly changing and developing. Just a few years ago, I could not tolerate drinking white wine… whatsoever. But recently I found myself buying a lovely little Riesling, and found myself thinking “when did that happen?” As time goes on your preferences may be …

ThatIsBeyond… Let’s Talk Below The Belt.

The internet has been all abuzz with with men’s brand Below The Belt. With all the hype, I just needed to try the products out for myself. I popped to my local Boots ands tried to get my hands on some, but to no avail. A second store ended in the same result (and by …

ThatIsBeyond… wobbling on a knife edge!

Perhaps, it’s just me. It’s a constant worry. I suspect I am not alone in my manly insecurities. It’s hard to tell, because let’s face it, blokes (in general) don’t talk about their feelings. I have struggled with body image for a long time – not a struggle with an illness or a disorder, but …

ThatIsBeyond… A Jack Wills haul for Dad!

Mens fashion stakes are always high, and for any men like me, who have a large frame and few extra pounds around the middle, perhaps the stakes are even higher. With so many fashion inaccessible to us, we have to dress smart to really look good!As a new father though, my priorities have changed somewhat… …

ThatIsBeyond.. The clothing Christmas bestowed on me!

This is part two of my Christmas Haul, and this will look at the delights that I will be rocking out in 2015! I like to wear clothes that say something about me. I like to think that I know the kind of clothing that suits my shape, and I am also not afraid to …

ThatIsBeyond… Spoilt Rotten.

This Christmas I have been a very lucky fella! I have been spoilt with an array of gifts that have all been picked out for me by friends and family that care about me. Over the next week or so I will feature some of these items, but I thought I would start with a …

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 …
