SS16 With Elliot Rhodes

Earlier this year I posted about my experience visiting one of the Elliot Rhodes stores (see here) and now I'm back with another post. If you don't already know Elliot Rhodes make custom belts with interchangeable buckles. We are already in SS16 now which means new fashions and trends - this goes for accessories too. Here are some of my tips and rules when it comes to accessorising with Elliot Rhodes this season.


What's In My Bag Rome Edition

What's In My Bag Rome Edition - Salman Dean

Last week I was in Rome so I thought I'd share a few of my essentials that were in my bag. My backpack which was super handy is from Forbes & Lewis. Made from durable material it's well structured and comfortable. The extra padding made a difference - also the fact that you can fit so much stuff in!


Mauve It Over

 BAIT x New Balance 791 Grey Sneakers 

Hey guys I'm back with another outfit post. Last weekend was surprisingly warm so I thought I would take advantage and wear shorts. Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good co-ord. I feel like they are going to be massive in menswear this season. I don't normally buy into "trends" just because that's what's popular. I have to really like the item or piece. If it doesn't speak to me then I know I don't need it in my wardrobe.


3 Ways To Fold A Pocket Square

Reiss Pocket Square
One the most important accessories in menswear is certainly a pocket square. I’m sure you’ve often wondered how they first started. Well the earliest documented pocket square dates back to ancient Egypt and followed through the ancient ages of Rome and Greece. However it was King Richard II of England, who popularised them. I feel like pocket squares are the underdog in the world of accessories but a pocket square can take a dull look and quickly make it look dapper.


Photo Diary: Columbia Road Flower Market

Columbia Road Flower Market
Last weekend the sun was shining and the weather was warm so I decided to visit Columbia Road Flower Market. Based in East London the flower market only runs on Sundays between 8am and 3pm. I would recommend getting there early as all the good flowers are snapped up by the end of the day. They also have some cool food places around so I decided to have breakfast there.


March Favourites

Salman Dean March Favourites Featuring Lavera And Crabtree & Evelyn
It's officially April! Can you believe it?! I honestly don't know where time is going. I'm back with another monthly favourites post although this one is slightly shorter than my previous ones. I think its mainly because what I have been loving in the past has rolled over into March - so I'm only mentioning what's not been on the blog before. Enough rambling now, let's get started!
