The biggest fashion faux-pas men make…

Too much of everything. Pay attention with the colours and the patterns.
“Less is more”

My thoughts of jewellery on men…

I’m working for a luxury watch brand, so for me, jewellery shows your personality. I am always wearing some form of jewellery, my friends also offer me jewellery, it’s a way of life and I have to have some jewellery on me all day.

My tips on shopping on a budget…

The 5 basic items every man should have in his wardrobe are…

A black t-shirt

A jean well-cut

Leather boots

Comfortable (but sexy) underwear

A good quality vest
