The new ‘Brights’ collection of luxury cuff links from Deakin & Francis
With their flagship store in Piccadilly Arcade in the heart of London, Deakin & Francis have 230 years of craftsmanship behind them and now offer a wide range of luxury accessories for men and women including wallets, money clips, signet rings and necklaces to name just a few. For this sponsored post I want to share details of the new ‘Brights’ collection of cuff links
The Beautiful Deakin & Francis store in London’s Piccadilly Arcade
We all know that accessories can lift an outfit from ordinary to interesting. They add a touch of additional colour and interest to your look and say something about the wearer. So what better than to add a touch of bright colour to your cuffs with a pair of bright statement cuff links.

Craig shares his experience with Hemingway Tailors and shows off his new bespoke shirt
As men we wear a lot of shirts and we’ve all seen those guys in ill fitting, baggy monstrosities, sagging at the collar and too long at the arms. On the flip side we’ve also seen the ones where the buttons strain and gape at the chest. All utterly dreadful, and all to be avoided, unless you want to look like you been at the dressing up box.
A well fitted shirt says a lot about a man. It shows that you take yourself seriously and care about your appearance. That said, allow me to introduce Hemingway Tailors.
With an office in South London Hemingway offer bespoke tailoring to London clients
With over ten years behind them offering men’s and women’s tailoring services, access to the world’s finest fabrics and over 90 years of tailoring heritage, Hemingway Tailors are a good choice when looking for made to measure or bespoke tailoring.
With a head office in Leeds and one in South London I headed over to meet them. Nestled in a pretty little courtyard in Kennington sits Hemingway Tailors. I met with Mark Banks, a tailor for 14 years Mark provides a personal tailoring service to Hemingway’s clients in London. Mark recognises the changes in tailoring and knows that advances in technology has helped produce a consistently high standard in his industry.
Craig shares his experience of his stay at the Port Lympne animal reserve and safari experience
Every now then I am surprised by an experience. I had absolutely no idea that just two train stops from Stratford and I could be hand feeding a Giraffe, monkeys and a Rhino. The Port Lympne animal reserve and safari experience is home to 760 animals across 90 species, including giraffes, monkeys, bears, lions and tigers. Not only that but you can stay in lodges with the animals!

Where to Stay at Port Lympne
For our two day experience we stayed at Port Lympne Mansion. This stunning grade II listed building was built in 1913 for Sir Phillip Sassoon. Like many large country homes it became abandoned after the second world war, before being bought in 1973 by John Aspinall who spent 10 years restoring the mansion. Aspinall was an interesting character known also for his gambling and links to the ‘disappearance’ of Lord Lucan, whom it is said he met with many years after he went missing. View Post
