AXE Gets a New Look and a New Grip

For all of you AXE fans out there, and I know there are tons of you — I have some exciting news. AXE has kicked of 2011 by revamping the AXE Shower Gel line – from scent to packaging. The new bottle has a badass futuristic shape with a new grip and click-to-open top that can be easily used with one hand, leaving the other hand to do the scrubbing and buffing. AXE shower gels are some of my favorite drugstore shower gels — ounce for ounce this shizz gives you a good bang for you buck.

The AXE Shower Gel fragrances:

EXCITE An addictive woodsy fragrance that hooks you on the first encounter.
THAI MASSAGE (my fav) Made with tiger grass oil and sea salt, and merges the scent of ginger, sandalwood and lychee to stimulate relaxation.
COOL METAL (newest addition) The cool & masculine fragrance fuses sparkling green and citrus notes with cold spices.

Britain's Manliest Man is the Face of Bluebeards Revenge

Bluebeards Revenge, one of my favorite shave creams has a new face — and that face is the ruggedly handsome rugby star Sasha Harding.

Sasha, 27, recently was awarded the title of ‘Britain’s Manliest Man’ after over 250,000 people voted that his boxer’s jawline, and 6’3” toned torso was the perfect masculine physique. Which is useful, as Sacha needs every ounce of strength for his day job, where he plays for Bedford Blues Rugby Club.

Guest Blog Post: Men's Suit Color Guide

Please enjoy this post from my friend and guest U.K. blogger Thomas from Samuel Windsor...

When the GlamMAN kindly invited me to share a guest post on this rather brilliant men’s grooming blog, I had to don my thinking cap to come up with appropriate subject matter.

You see, my expertise is in men’s suits, so I had to ask myself ‘will anyone be interested in hearing me ramble on about tailoring?’

Coming to the conclusion the answer was likely to be ‘no, but what else can I talk about?’ I’ve decided to just keep it short and share some advice about picking the appropriate colour suit.

I’ve picked out five important occasions in order to advise you which shades look best. So here goes:

Nights out
Most men would never even think of wearing a suit for an informal night out in a bar or restaurant. But a slim-fit black suit, dressed down with a plain black tee always works. If that’s still too smart, swap suit trousers for dark jeans and you’ll still make a stylish splash with the blazer.

As a guest at a wedding, choosing what to wear can be a bit of minefield. However, as a general rule of thumb, light grey and navy blue tones, coupled with a crisp white shirt never go out of style and are appropriate for nearly any celebration.

The office
As boring as it sounds, greys and charcoals are definitely most appropriate for work. If you’re desperate to add a bold splash of colour, do so with a tastefully selected shirt and tie combination or a subtle pinstripe suit.

Though it’s tempting to try and stand out from the crowd, it’s better to go simple and keep attention focused firmly on you. A black suit is a good choice and makes a strong impression, but lighten the mood with a white shirt and dark tie with a subtle pattern.

There’s a common misconception that men have to wear a black suit for a funeral. You certainly can wear black and arguably it is the most appropriate choice. However, a dark grey suit teamed with a dark coloured shirt is just as acceptable.

And of course, it goes without saying you should pick appropriate frangrances for each of these occasions, something I’m sure the GlamMAN can help you out with.

Thanks for reading.
