A trip to Scotland is often a delight for those not from the nation. While some Scots are self-deprecating in the extreme, it’s a beautiful nation. Living here, you get an almost instant sense of the charm and beauty of the Scots people, and arguably that is found most authentically in its beautiful capital, Edinburgh.
The capital of Scotland is a truly stunning city and is easily among the most impressive on the British Isles. However, like most capital cities, knowing where to go can be tough!
Where, then, should you start?
As we head towards the end of 2018, many men will be looking ponderously at their wardrobes. With the summer well and truly gone and winter upon us, it’s important that we dress for the time of the year. However, as ever winter does, new and improved trends are falling into place this fall. So, as we begin to make our exit dash from 2018 and move into 2019, what can we expect from men’s fashion trends?
What should guys be keeping an eye out on as they head around their favourite clothing stores?

After 20 years we have finally got around to replacing our the old Technics sound system. It has served us well over this long period and combined with the Mission speakers, it still produced a very good sound.
However, in recent years it has been sitting there unused and gathering dust. The last time either of us bought a CD was at least 4 years ago and we don’t think we have used the tape deck for over 12 years.
Most of our music is now in the iTunes library and 2 years ago we found the joys of music streaming services (currently using Spotify and Amazon).
As an aspiring international jet-setting pilot (32 hours in an old PA28) my current watch envy is for the Breitling Navitimer 01, the Rose Gold and Steel case version.
We all know that you can buy an accurate quartz watch for £10 but there’s so much more to owning an iconic classic watch. It’s not about being ‘flash with the cash‘ if that’s your thing stick to the fake Rolex and fake orange tan.
Get Yourself A Mackintosh Not A Macintosh
I doubt if it has escaped your notice that we are getting a lot of rain each year. A couple of years ago one village in Wales had non stop rain for over 80 days which prompted one resident to say – even the livestock are ‘depressed’.
As we head into the Autumn / Winter seasons and the jet stream is taking up permanent residence over the UK it’s more likely to be continuing downpours accompanied by gale force winds rather than the Bambiclassic ‘Drip, Drip, Drip, little April showers‘.
Don’t get too depressed, simply get yourself a stylish Mac to keep yourself warm and dry until the biblical floods finally subside.
Choosing Your Mac
The true original is the Mackintosh, first sold in 1824.
The very early rubberised cotton coats had problems with their smell and stiffness unfortunately for the fetishists out there, this is no longer an issue.
Mackintosh is now synonymous with British craftsmanship and heritage and the Mackintosh brand has long been the choice for the discerning Japanese man and woman, hopefully, the brand’s success in Japan will help its revitalisation back in the UK.
Mackintosh has their flagship shop in Mayfair, London at 19 Conduit Street, London W1S 2BH.
