Trend - Bright Tartan

Timothee Chalamet in Prada GQ tartan coatEverybody loves tartan, well, they should do. The brighter the better in our books.

Bright tartans are nothing new, historically, the Victorians loved going bold with their family checks. Regardless of your clan, think strong clashing colours, especially in your outerwear and accessories.

And, you can always wear more than one at a time, just look at the Johnstons of Elgin 'Clash of the Clans' scarf below. The Gloverall Lochcarron coat is womenswear, but would fit and look good on anybody. Check it all out.

Grooming Dated Daniel

daniel craig james bond male body hair

daniel craig james bond male body hairWhen Daniel Craig had his birth of Venus (more like Mars) moment, emerging from the sea fully hench, we all knew this sexualised image was the dawning of a new era of Bond.

That was 2006, and was many people’s first introduction to the first of his five Bond films, Casino Royale.

From Left - 2006 -2020

Fast forward to 2020, and, as Craig bows out of his dinner suited role, we get another undressed look thanks to British GQ. 

Now, 52, he looks just as toned and muscular as he did 14 years before. He looks good, but, there’s something of out of step and slightly dated about the image. While he hasn’t changed, men have.

The clean-cut, shaved, tanned and hairless body of 2006 looks almost immature for a man today. There’s a slight hairy treasure trail above his waistband, but it feels like he’s stuck in a Love Island-like time warp sponsored by Veet.

Like I’ve written before, (see below) men are hairy now. From Only Fans porn stars to Frida Kahlo, hairy is lazy and it looks great. I don’t know why, but it just looks right, and that’s the whole point about it looking and feeling contemporary.

Right - We've had a hairy Bond before - Sean Connery
