As a straight guy (questionable by some), I have no problems saying who I think is an attractive, cool guy. So on one drunken night during the summer I came up with “the list”. “The list” is my list of guys that – as i drunkenly put it – “if I were to come back as a guy it would be one of these”. Now the list is not based solely on looks, it’s more about how “cool” or “suave” the man is, as a guy does he make you think “if only I were him, man everything would be A Ok” ….. Does he have that certain “je ne sais quoi”?
The list is an ongoing endeavor, and many a night it is the topic of conversation amongst my friends, so much so, that the term “list material”, where we determine they person’s pros & cons, has become a common term amongst us. So here’s who we have so far (in no particular order) –

Johnny Depp (i’m not gay, but I would)
Christian Bale
Robert Downey Jr.
Daniel Craig
Denzel Washington
Brad Pitt
Christopher Walken
John Voight
Hugh Jackman
Tom Hanks
Benicio Del Toro
Clive Owen
Kanye West
Jake Gyllenhaal
James McAvoy
Pierce Brosnan
Will Smith
Heath Ledger
Leonardo DiCaprio
Russell Crowe
Joaquin Phoenix
Matt Damon
Owen Wilson
Tom Cruise
Tiger Woods
Billy Zane
Viggo Mortensen
Simon Pegg
Ray Winstone

Please feel free to let me know of any others you think I might have missed, and we will surely deem whether he be list material.

Someone asked me recently, “would you go back and do the last year differently, say different things, make different decisions?”
I thought about this for a minute, would I, could I?
My eventual reply was “Nope, I couldn’t do things differently, even if I wanted to.” The decisions I’ve made, and things I’ve done over the last year or so, were decisions made on how I was feeling, and what I thought was right at the time. If I were to go back to certain situations again, I would make the very same decisions, for I would feel the same.

“When you make a mistake, don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.” Hugh White (1773 – 1840)

I’m loving Adidas’s Originals collection right now, and it’s cool retro styling. It’s a collection that has a definite 1940’s – 80’s style look and feel about it, with the most of the brand using the Trefoil logo.

The t-shirts are all clean-cut with simple lines used sparingly, while the tracksuit tops can seem use them more prominently. The footwear is very reminiscent of tennis and athletic styles of old.

A good leather jacket will never go out of fashion, and will only get better looking the more it’s worn.
So it’s to my amazement that I found this absolute beaut in Arnotts one day. A classic 60’s style, neat chocolate coloured leather jacket from Ted Baker, the likes of which you could see Steve McQueen donning while cruising aound on his bike.

Something like this make it even more of a reason why Ted Baker is my favourite mens clothes shop at the moment.

Does mens shoes really get any better than these German, military style inspired lace-up boots from All Saints. Just gorgeous!
