 by T W Coombs

A couple of weeks ago myself and Grace headed off to CheeseFestUK the first held in Kent.  The truth of the matter we used it as an excuse for an up coming sports event, still counts if they are a month apart right?

Good Enough For a King - My Blue Suede Shoes


By T W Coombs

Okay so I am not exactly Elvis Presley, which to be honest is a good thing, firstly I am not a fan of his music, I don’t eat burgers unless I have too, plus he is dead and I really want to go a better way than a heart attack on the toilet.  But one thing he did have that was good was his Blue Suede shoes.

My Summer Songs - My Top Ten Summer Tracks


by T W Coombs

It is that time of year when you are chilling in gardens, heading to warmer climates to sit by some sort of body of water and enjoying long evenings relaxing.  I will be doing just that in a month's time, so I thought I would put together my Summer playlist with ten songs that will be part of my own Summer sound. I’m sure it says more about me than it should but here goes......

All About The Pastel - A Brief Glance at Summer


By T W Coombs

In 2017 we had Millennial pink, you remember that, a sudden burst of bright pink shades on t-shirts, shorts, shirts and I even saw then a pair of trainer not being worn by a twelve year old girl.  Come on guys, some pink items are not right on anyone above early twenties.

The Stranger on the Bridge by Jonny Benjamin - The Review


By T W Coombs

As you may not know but I am very into my Mental Health and getting men in particular to talk about the stress in there lives and dealing with problems to stop them taking their lives as every year so many do and it also can be stopped.  So when Hearst Publishers asked me to read and give my opinion on ‘The Stranger on the Bridge’ by Jonny Benjamin I couldn’t say no and here we are.  As part of Hearst Big Book Festival the Big Book Awards runs across the styles that their publications hit.  Men's Health had three on the viewing board and this stood out amongst the others.

The Spring Low Down - Part Two - The Camp Collar and Print Shirt

By T W Coombs

Just as a random heat wave moves on from the UK we will now be hit with rain showers mixed with some Sun and lows of 4 degrees, which is always a nightmare when it comes to sartorial ideas.  I would love to tell you all how to exactly dress but sadly you have to take the gamble of warmth or rain on a daily basis and you will find you get caught out.

The Spring Low Down – Part One


By T W Coombs

The sun is here, the heat is rising and we are still fully wrapped up because you can never be too sure and to be honest we are only weeks away from a snow storm that shut Britain down. But I have had a word and I’m sure we can get our SS18 wardrobe out soon.

Meet the Grey Owl

By T W Coombs esq.

With the abundance of street-wear hitting our streets and with the casual attire of Generation X some may think the old is out.  But this is not the case, the dapper generation still want to master the art of the oldest accessory.  Originating from 17th century, during the 30 year war in France, King Louis XIII spread this fashion which he took from some of his soldiers.  But this is not the oldest bit of pea-cocking I know one simple one which can be taken back to the Egyptians.  I am of course talking of the Tie and the Pocket Square.

Sock it to me - BAM Clothing

By T W Coombs

The lovely people at Bamboo Clothing kindly sent me a pair of their socks from their Kingswear range to give them a whirl.  So I slipped them on and popped them into my everyday trainers and to show them off a little put with a turned up pair of jeans.  This is my normal daily work wear and these fitted in nicely to the look, the striped pattern is a little treat for the eyes and breaks up the mundane within an outfit.

The Social in Social Media - The Algorithm


By T W Coombs

I had some call by others to do another copywriting blog and after much pondering and a lot of people freaking out I decided to get my head around the new Facebook Algorithm.  That nasty bit of code that even makes your most recent not your most recent. So here goes.

The Lost Art


by T W Coombs

We live in a world where we have a small slim box of glass, metal and plastic sat in our pockets (thankfully not clipped to belts these days) that we can sort our life on.  From our diary, to notes, voice notes, dictionary, the list just goes on.  But with this ease of life planning, something is being missed.  The elegance of pen design, the thoughtfulness of the handwritten note, and the amazing feeling of receiving a letter in the post, not just an email.  We have lost a true art form.

The Fitness Triumph - Hitting My Summit

By T W Coombs

Firstly I have not completed a Marathon, Ultra Marathon, run across the Sahara, nor have I scaled Everest as the title suggests. Far from it, I am usually happy just to get twenty minutes of light jogging out of me knees.  That is if people still go jogging, it seems to be that everyone just runs now, “going for a run”, “I am runner”, so maybe I am now coming into my own runner prowess.

The Fitbit Dilemma

By T W Coombs

If like me you have moved to the sports watch tracker, this little block of plastic, electronics and sensors to measure your every step then you may now understand my dilemma.  You see, yes it is nice to have a sports watch that measures my heart beat and shows me my calories burning and how far I have run or walked, but it isn’t exactly my skeleton automatic though, is it.

The January Blues

By T W Coombs

Surely the “January Blues” means that blue is in, right? If you are down then why, I know that you have already fallen from the wagon several times since the 2nd so you’re out of Dry January and that BigMac has buggered Veganary so you might as well just get into other new things.  With that in mind I want to show some new things which are Blue and in no way depressing.

LFWM A/W 2018 – The Round Up


By T W Coombs

It seems only yesterday that I was trying to understand why someone created items of clothing that were inspired by a Tellytubby, but that was a whole year ago.  And London Fashion Week Men’s has already rolled round.  It is not really a week and is spread over three days in London.  Alas I didn’t get to go to any of the events but I have compiled a round-up of style coming for A/W 2018.
