ThatIsBeyond… A New Dad Lounging in his Gandy’s!

  Style is an ever-changing beast. As well as fashions themselves constantly developing and adapting for the marketplace, style conscious consumers are also on a sliding scale of change. We are ageing, putting on a few pounds, exercising and developing our physiques, getting more or less sleep… And so on. This simply means that our […]

THATISBEYOND…Wallets for a stylish gent!

With a wallet that has fallen apart in my I hand, I turn to my wife and say “Maybe a new wallet for Valentines Day?” We are dancing the “Gift tango” again, with neither one of us being particularly helpful to the other with suggestions!  But a wallet is actually a great idea, because I […]

THATISBEYOND… The opposite of Disposable Fashion with Tom Cridland

It’s impossible to escape disposability. From our coffee cups to our tweets, our politics to our fashion, many things in our lives only last a few weeks on the shelves before they enter the “bargain bin”! And most of the time these same items have less of a lifetime in our wardrobes.   Where quality […]

So I thought why not share my Christmas survival […]

ThatIsBeyond…The Vintage Fashion Bible

   Every fashion trend is influenced by what has come before. The cyclical nature of fashion means that authentic vintage clothing can often be the pinnacle of being fashion forward in the modern day. As a man in his thirties, I have seen the regeneration of many trends… (Who knew the shell suit from the […]
