Spotting the familiar face of Yu Masui on NYT’s site brought back some good memories. We snapped Masui last year out and about at Graduate Fashion Week (right) in a great Balenciaga neckpiece and cropped trousers. Elizabeth Spiridakis (aka White Lightning), talking up her holy trinity of boy-fash crushes interviewed the Japanese fashion writer who said this about borrowing from womenswear:

Doesn’t Fiddy scrub up well? From coke dealer to primped popstar I guess it doesn’t come as that much of a surprise to learn that 50 Cent is planning to release a range of cosmetics for men. Jean Paul Gaultier’s heralded the acceptance of male cosmetics into the mainstream, (and also a hilarious video or two courtesy of Stuart and Sean) and now Curtis James Jackson III is joining the bandwagon.

Gallery: Men’s Moisturisers

admin Gallery, Grooming Leave a Comment

Winter does bad things to your face, central heating dries it out, icy cold chaps it and makes it sensitive and all that blowing your nose hasn’t helped.

Now is the time to moisturise but don’t even bother unless your skin is clean, a simple unfragranced face wash and lots of lukewarm water should do the trick. Shaving will exfoliate the beard area of the skin, but try some gentle rubbing with a damp facecloth to your nose and forehead to allow the skin to absorb your moisturiser.

Mark Turner Kiss and Makeup’s favourite metrosexual gives his verdict on the Moosehead range

Spending most of my supermarket time between the ‘save 3p on sticky, dented, own-brand, multipack cans of diet coke’ section and perusing what’s new in the 2 for 1 section, I’ve never been enticed into buying any Moose Head products (plus I go to Tesco and they’re at Sainsbury’s). So when someone thrust a handful of these my way I thought I would add my two cents worth.

Man About Town- Issue 2- Hayden Christensen

So I realise that this is the second time we ( fine, I) have looked at Hayden Christensen on a magazine cover over a relatively short time period but surely a young male celebrity who has every reason to be guarded with the use of his image but agrees to be on the cover of a men’s (non-dirty) magazine in only its second issue deserves to mentioned in our blog? Now better looking blog I might mention.

Top Five: New Male Scents

Like tax and death, scent is one of life’s fickle promises. I have just returned from a trip to New York and I couldn’t help but notice how great everyone smelt (not in some strange Charlie’s Angels hair-sniffer way.) In the returning yellow cab to JFK, my week in the Big Apple flashed before my eyes as a flurry of smiling sales associates and the now dog-eared sample cards currently resonating through my conscience (and bedroom!) Whether you have a Grenouille like nose or are suspiciously blind to the sweet smell of- well smell, ‘cologne’ or ‘scent’ is something that you need to be firmly aquainted with.

Yes No Maybe clothing

Isabelle Clothing Leave a Comment

I can’t look at any ‘Yes No Maybe’ clothing without thinking of the Malcolm in the Middle theme song but that’s me and my jingle obsessed brain. I usually hate smug slogan t-shirts but the ‘bukkake ruined my carpet’ one is actually quite funny. I think it’s the mundane mention of a carpet that stops it from being too ‘student …

Collar stiffeners a-gogo

Isabelle Clothing 1 Comment

Collar stiffeners eh, who’d a thunk it? They’re used to stop collars curling and keep shirts looking sharp. Quality shirts usually come with a plastic insert that breaks after a few washes so I’ve done a round up of  the collar stiffeners on the market. Collar stiffeners almost come into the ‘Innovations Catalogue’ area of pointless inventions but not quite. …
