Brand Focus: Canali*

Sunday, 20 November 2016


It's been a while since I have really focused on a brand in a non-review format. What it comes down to is a desire to continue a stream of content on O&U, but a difficulty in balancing working full time and the days getting shorter, with getting photos and allocating time for everything to be done. Canali is a brand I have always loved the idea of working with, although my style over time has become considerably more casual, my passion for the tailored attire has always persisted.

The Original Breton Shirt Co.

Wednesday, 19 October 2016

Two months is a long time to pause writing on a blog, I understand that. It wasn't the easiest decision to make, I stopped writing around the time that it was all I wanted to do, however I am happy I bit the proverbial bullet. Now I am back, and I truly hope that you consider this to be a positive thing. Since my last post, I have started a new job, moved to London, and basically achieved a goal I set out for myself earlier this year. This took concentration on things other than the blog, sadly.

Of course, I didn't want to start up again with any old post, and luckily for me I was contacted by the one, and only, Original Breton Shirt Co. A few years ago, I wrote a post on how to capture the style of James Dean using a Breton top from them, so it seems fitting to bring it back into the fold, this time wearing one of their tops myself. I understand that I don't look quite as suave as James Dean.

Copenhagen in Photographs

Sunday, 21 August 2016



Bored on the Saturday before my graduation, after dangerously deciding to treat myself, I sprawled the internet in search for something that would be worthy of a graduation present from me to me. As tempting as it may have been to opt for a new pair of shoes, upgrading my camera or perhaps even stepping up my watch game (I'm addicted), I had a eureka moment to blow all other thoughts out of the water. Explore.

Fry Family Food Meat-Free Challege

Unusual challenges and brand collaborations are always welcome with me, especially if they can have some kind of positive impact on my every day life. This is why I was so keen on collaborating with Fry's Vegetarian to go a week without meat, alongside why I worked with Virgin Active for the MyWorkoutFor Single Life campaign recently.

Henry London Watches

If you follow me on either Instagram or SnapChat (rjhnixon - shameless plug), you'll know that I decided to go on a trip to Copenhagen. When I say that I decided, I mean that I got bored on the Saturday and so I booked flights and a hostel, to leave on Tuesday (the day after my graduation). This level on spontaneity is not something I'm used to, but it was incredibly rewarding as I met fantastic people and saw some stunning places. I also thought it would be the perfect place to get a couple of images for my collaboration with Henry London.
