SAY YES… the Hawaiian shirt

At £15 you can’t really say no, can you? If you think you can then let me explain why every man needs a Hawaiian shirt in his wardrobe.

Firstly, spring has FINALLY arrived and if you are an English male you are soon going to get the overwhelming desire to take your shirt off while walking down Rye Lane drinking a Red Stripe, even though it still hasn’t got much hotter than a Spanish winter. But the Hawaiian shirt offers you an alternative, by wearing one you can embrace the on coming summer without having the make a total twat of yourself.

Secondly, all these guys rock a Hawaiian.

Baby it’s cold outside.

IT IS COLD, really cold. Every conversation I have had today has involved the cold weather in some way or another, there is no escaping it. Except with the postman, with him I made the same joke I have been making for the past year “hope you have something more exciting than bills for me today hahahaha”. He hates me.

So anyway let me help you brave the cold by wrapping you up in a nice woolly jumper. There is nothing better. But don’t be boring and buy a plain wool jumper form somewhere like Gap….because lets face it no one is as in to this guy


As this guy ….I mean, he provided most of our childhoods with more excitement than any other fictional character we were duped into believing in by those beckons of “honesty and trust” known as, our parents.


And wouldn’t you rather be in a David Lynch series like Twin Peaks ….


Than a rom com like The Holiday.


So follow Santa and Lucy Moran’s lead and buy something more unusual, fun and festive.

Here is what I have in store for you that would make them proud.

All the Jumpers are 100% wool
