Brown Bag Makeover

Hey peeps, happy new month! Welcome to December, the last month of 2015, whoop whoop. These last 3 months have gone by so fast, too fast, and to usher in the new month, I bring to you a slightly different post. The husband – M, takes over the blog, and he has had a makeover, yay!


Mens Outfit


The lovely people of Brown Bag offered M the opportunity to pick out some pieces from their website, and he was spoilt for choice, it took him quite awhile to make up his mind, as there are so many cool designer pieces on Brown Bag. For those who have never heard of this brand, it is an outlet store, specialising in selling premium menswear from past seasons, at great prices. I was on the site yesterday and there was a ‘get up to 80% off’ Cyber Week sale going on, it was crazy, and let’s just say, I got busy. Most items were slashed to at least 75% off, and I couldn’t stop myself. I had to shop, but it was all good because I still had some Christmas gifts to get. I am sorted for Christmas gifts now, well almost sorted I think.

Now back to this stylish outfit, M went for a Luke 1977 Abbots blue vein striped pique polo shirt. This regular fit shirt featured a classic flat knit collar, a three button placket, ribbed cuffs and a Luke 1977 badge embroidered to the chest. I love the feel and colour of this polo shirt, and the coloured stripes. It is also an excellent fit, which is great.

M also picked out a Dapper Stag quilted navy blue jacket by Woodhouse Clothing. This regular fit, made in England jacket featured a classic corduroy collar, corduroy bound cuffs, snap-flap pockets to hips and an internal zipped pocket. It is perfect for layering for the chilly months and can also be worn as a light jacket in the warmer months. I love this jacket so much, can you tell?

  1. Hmmm… Can see M had a nice time shopping. Found out about the website only recently too and I saw a True Religion demin top and jeans for cheap. It was unbelievable. With money in the bank now, to for shopping 🙂

  2. That jacket is awesome! It looks fantastic for men this winter (I have to admit I’m obviously thinking in black and white today as I scrolled down and thought huh where is the brown bag makeover) oh dear! x

  3. I’m a fan of preppy style personally. No surprise my boyfriend is super preppy. Naturally I like your husbands polo, so cute. Quilted jacket, no-brainer for man or woman. Stylish & warm, the perfect combo. This navy blue shade is a great neutral. I haven’t heard of this brand but clearly they make nice looking pieces. I’m a Barbour brand girl. This brand is really old school English. The shoes, the best ever!!! But aren’t those boat shoes? You know, like the classic ones made by Sperry? Why is Tommy referring to them as sneakers? Shame on you Mr. Hilfiger. As for the jeans, that’s the only piece I’m not a fan of. I don’t like the mega baggy look. I think the rinse is nice. But I feel like because the jeans is so big, it’s actually making him look shorter. A dark rinse, more tailored jean would be amazing on him. Slimming and lengthening. I find that the same tricks we girls use when picking jeans, also works on boys. Ok, I’ve rambled on enough. This is just one girls opinion.

  4. I like the whole combination. It is put together well! Well done. I wonder if my hubby would be up for a makeover? You are giving me ideas :-). Thanks for sharing
