must have shirt nanuska chic geek men's mr porter best

This new season shirt has already been trolling me around social media. It's got something of the Bode vibes, which is all good, and from what I'm seeing looks even better on. You can't have enough embroidery atm.

Wear it open, over a vest, or closed with wide trousers à la King & Tuckfield.

Tried & Tested Indie Lee

Indie Lee beauty review tried tested chic geek men's razor bestIn 2008, brand Founder Indie Lee experienced a health crisis that led to a general lifestyle re-evaluation, and that included looking at what she was putting on her skin (after learning that up to 60% of what we apply to our skin may be absorbed in as little as 26 seconds). Sourcing the world's finest ingredients and formulating with the help of leading, like-minded chemists, Indie Lee & Co. intrinsically blends nature and science and utilises alternative ingredient solutions to bring the most efficacious products to market without sacrificing safety. 

TheChicGeek says, “I asked for the most male facing products to try and was recommended to try the Active Oil-Free Moisturizer, Banish Solution and Brightening Cleanser. I tried all three and overall impressions are; this is a quality range, all beautifully packaged. 

"The Brightening Cleanser is a fine, fruity smelling gel-like cleanser perfect for the shower, the oil-free moisturiser is a non-greasy yet rich daily moisturiser - just needs an SPF - containing daisy and vitamin C-rich mandarin extracts helping to improve the complexion while milk thistle and pomegranate provide antioxidant benefits. Jasmine, great burdock and immortel flowers provide lightweight hydration - my skin looked healthy and nourished - and the Banish Solution is a thick, pinkish and talc-free solution, applied with a cotton bud, containing colloidal sulfur and salicylic acid working to draw out impurities and absorb excess oil while zinc oxide nourishes skin to alleviate dryness. This was perfect for putting onto spots and blemishes - remember to remove after drying before leaving the house! - and it really dried out and shortened the life span of any spots or acne. I enjoyed this range and looked forward to using it. ChicGeek Recommends."

Tried & Tested AKT Deodorant

AKT deordorant review tried tested chic geek men's razor bestFounded by actors Andy Coxon and Ed Currie, who took AKT-ion launching their very own (now award-winning) natural deodorant brand when the West End industry was shut down in 2020.

Dedicating three years to research, development and formulation, collaborating with leading experts in fragrance and cosmetic science, with exacting standards and a whole heap of creativity, Andy and Ed immersed themselves into the world of deodorant. The diligent duo created an all-vegan, gender-neutral, natural, plastic-free deodorant brand - that is tested on performers, not animals.

The AKT London range currently consists of three natural deodorant balms – SC. 01 ORANGE GROVE, SC. 02 AFTER THUNDER and SC. 03 The ONSEN – as well as THE APPLICATOR and THE ASSISTANT tools.

TheChicGeek says, “A few of us - meaning me - got out of the habit of daily deodorant during lockdown and WFH. If anything is going to get you back in to it, and fill you with confidence, this is it. The brass applicator is a bit of an indulgent faff, but it certainly nice to handle and look at.

”I tried The Onsen, which features vetiver, lavandin and citrus, which all smell delicious. A pea-sized amount for each armpit is sufficient and this really does last all day. You almost don’t need anything other fragrance when wearing this. 'The Assistant could easily be used on all your tubed products.”

Film Get The Look Elvis

get the look elvis presley new film menswear leather jacketA little less conversation, a little more action, please. This could, of course, be my epitaph, but on a week the Elvis film comes out, it’s time to look back and see how we can bring his 50s - when he was young and fit - feeling into our late summer wardrobes. Only fools rush in, but (hopefully) you can't help falling in love with...

Return of the Ringer (Tee)

menswear return of the ringer t shirt Karl LagerfeldDead ringer? I think not. The ringer T-shirt - those tees with matching piping around the arm and neck - have bounced back continually since their inception in the 1970s. From Stranger Things-like 80s revivals to 90s Britpop, the ringer T-shirt is back.

Left - Karl Lagerfeld X Alled Martinez - Ringer T-Shirt - £119

Thanks to a new collab. with Barcelona based designer Alled Martinez and Karl Lagerfeld, who has professed his love of the ringer T-shirt and emblazoned them with 'Team Karl'. He manages to balance a new feel of sexy and cute.

Gucci had them all over their latest adidas drop which taps into adidas' Originals heritage, while there are numerous designs out there or simply opt for plain.

If you want to get in on the trend, but with a minimal outlay, look on eBay where you can pick up plain ringer tees in a multitude of colours for around a fiver. It looks great on most body shapes and gives better definition to your arms while offering a retro edge.
