ThatIsBeyond… The longevity of Fashion.

As we probably all know, fashion is cyclical. Looks, last for a season and then it’s on to the next idea, the next pattern, the next design. It’s the nature of the beast and part of what makes clothing so exciting for me. I have always been a bit of a forward thinker with what […]

ThatIsBeyond… Part 2 of the M&S SS15 Collection, the Best of British

So this is part two of my look at the M&S SS15 collection. Basically this is because there was so much to take in that was great! This post is mainly focusing on their “Best of British” range. The collection had a very “British” feel to the styles themselves, but the title of the range […]

ThatIsBeyond… M&S SS15 collection and David Gandy Loungewear

I am a very lucky chap! I kindly got invited to preview the M&S SS15 collection. And boy oh boy do they have some beautiful pieces in their menswear lines. The trends that were featured, were a play on casual tailoring, the return of double denim, knitted geometric tees and of course the new lines […]

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…”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 […]

So this is a celebration of @latraybelle ‘s birthday daily look which comprises of a Dinner Jacket and funky tartan accessories! Dinner Jacket (two pieces) from Primark in a 44″ Chest […]

The purpose… To collect data from men of all shapes and sizes to inform the design and fit of their ‘own brand’ range. (And let’s face it […]

That is beyond…My perception of Swedish fashion!

That is beyond… My perception of Swedish fashion! Having spent a week in Sweden’s Capital city, Stockholm, I have gained a real insight into what the movers and shakers of Scandinavia are rocking, this Spring and Summer. I have also quizzed my spy (a resident of Central Stockholm) on what trends he has seen on […]

Thatisbeyond…a rant to the high street

Thatisbeyond…a rant to the high street. I am not gonna lie, I buy almost all of my clothes and grooming products from the high street. It’s partly an up-bringing thing and partly a finance thing, but whatever is at the heart of it, it’s how I have rolled and how I thought I would continue […]

Thatisbeyond… Accessorising a suit beyond the office!

Thatisbeyond… Accessorising a suit beyond the office! Many professions require men to spend a lot of time in a suit, its just part of the job. As visionary as designers get ( we saw a brief flutter of short suits being acceptable) it is only really in the arts that we saw this take off. […]
