Hats are making a come back in a big way. Whether you enjoy a slouchy beanie for a relaxed vibe, or a trilby to add a dapper touch to your outfit, there is no denying that it can complete a look. We have all seen the flat-brim hats being worn around town, and as cool and on-trend as the look is, they can’t be worn all the time. A beanie is a great way to keep your head warm and looks great with a pair of skinny jeans, tee and open shirt for a easy and care-free feel, whilst a trilby can be added to a dressier look by using it to accessories a skinny jeans and blazer combo. Either way, a hat is your most undervalued accessory; so if you don’t already have a few in your wardrobe, then head on down to Annex to start your collection.

One of the most essential items in every guy’s wardrobe, and one he will rarely ever buy, is a bag. We all need one, regardless of who we are or what we do. So finding the right bag is key. For most guys, we want something cool and practical, yet still carries us through our day-to-day activities. There are just a few simple things to note when looking for a bag.
· Colour: choose neutral or basic colours- you can never go wrong with black or dark brown!
· Fabric: Leather is usually your best bet. It is easy to clean and will last you for years. Choose soft leather for a less structured bag such as a satchel or tote.
· Style: Keep it simple – the last thing you want is something over the top. A minimalist bag is versatile and can adapt to different looks.
However, before you begin that checklist, opt for a bag that can accommodate your needs. If you carry a lot of things around with you, then perhaps look for a tote or a backpack. However, if you just need it to store a few things like a wallet and phone, then go for a satchel. Annex has a great range of bags that are sure to fit your needs. Head on down to store to look at our range, say hi to the staff, and maybe grab yourself any other winter essentials your wardrobe is missing.
Listen up guys – grooming is important! Now we aren’t saying to go and get a full body wax followed by a mani-pedi, but at least do the essentials. And this means a regular haircut and looking after that facial hair.
The last few years has seen Mad Men inspired hairstyles dominate, with men both near and far sporting either the quiff or the sleeked part. And this winter, the style hasn’t really changed; everything is just that little more exaggerated. If you are going to attempt the quiff, pump it up with the use of boosting powder. This looks exactly like baby powder and is to be sprinkled onto slightly damp hair before drying in order to give your hair volume. American Crew, Schwarzkopf and Taft all sell tubs of the stuff, and it is perfect for achieving the look. However, if you prefer to be a little more dapper and sleek your hair down, then your greatest tool will be pomade. It is a thick, clear gel that provides you with a high shine yet still allows for you to finely comb the hair back into a sleek part. If you are concerned about movement, spray a bit of hairspray over the top in order to hold it all in place.
As for the beard, well, it seems to be making a comeback. However, there are a few basic rules you need to follow. Unless you are the penultimate hipster, keep it neat and tidy. Use clippers to regularly trim it back and to shape it, and even moisturise the hair to soften it. Take time when trimming to ensure an even look, and most of all, pay attention to where the sideburns end and beard begins- they should blend in together! If you prefer to sport a moustache, then the same rules apply.
