ThatIsBeyond… Top ”Summer” Tips for the modern man!

As the season of sun, sand & sea is now officially underway, I start to think about a few ways that I can improve my experience of Summer even from the office! Looking good and feeling confident is especially important in the warmer months (it’s all the shirtless time, in short shorts and beachwear, which […]

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…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… 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 […]

ThisIsBeyond… A Saturday morning’s loungewear

Today I choose to be comfortable. This Dad is battling his son to eat that last bite of porridge! He’s looking after his Bunny whilst he fixes the car crash that happened around his tiny toes and Dad and mum are also trying to juggle their cups of decaf Coffee and Tea respectively!! When your […]

ThatIsBeyond…Bobby Abley and some Loony Tunes!

Early in the new year @lqdlondon passed on an invite to the hotly anticipated showing of the new collection from Bobby Abley. I couldn’t have turned it down if I had wanted to! The buzz of the show was audible upon entry to the home of London Fashion Week Men’s (LFWM) and the whose who […]

ThatIsBeyond… Gandy’s Gentlemen’s Garbs

The most important aspect to successful loungewear is simply it’s comfortability. Yes it’s also great if you can add some stylish flair to it (gone are the days when threadbare joggers and an ill-fitting Tee will cut the mustard in the loungewear stakes) but at the heart of the best loungewear, comfort is prized above […]

ThatIsBeyond… The Bulletproof Boxer Brief Test featuring HOM Underwear.

In this post I put the iconic HO1 Original Long Boxer briefs to the ultimate test! There are many ways to judge a good pair of pants! For some people,what is important, is based purely on aesthetics. For others it will be comfort or functionality, but for the majority of men (like me) it is […]
