I'm frequently asked to write more boy orientated blog posts, particularly when it comes to fashion. I know a few of you struggle when it comes to style inspiration, and why wouldn't you? Magazines, blogs, movies & tv shows are jam packed full of fashion ideas... for women. When it comes to mens advice there's pretty much GQ and The Sartorialist. So let's call this my little Valentines gift to the boys. My first mens style guide on how to smarten up with just a few key pieces. Let's take it from the top.
You need to invest in a good winter coat. There's nothing less attractive than a shivering man with blue lips. You're supposed to keep us warm, remember?
The more you spend, the warmer you'll be.
But there are some great, really affordable options too.
Remember you'll wear this nearly every day & great quality will last forever, so it really is an investment.

It broadens the shoulders, pulls in your waist and always looks effortlessly cool.
You can buy great blazers all over, but here are a few of this season's gems.
