My first insight – grow a beard

Hello, Robert here. Welcome to my personal blog that couldn’t have come sooner. It has been in the pipeline for a very long time. I put it off over and over again, as the whole internet thing left me daunted to say the least. But with the help of Phil I’ve finally made my dream of starting a blog a reality. So before we begin, if we could all could all respectively give Phil a round of applause and a cheer for setting up the blog for me, I’m sure he would appreciate it.
Now let’s get into the good stuff. You’re probably here because you have some interest in fashion. Well I can tell you now you are in the right place. Being a man, I am going to be inclined to talk more about male fashion than female, and I’m sorry if you came here expecting something different. That’s not to say that we may have some posts targeted towards the ladies at some point in the future, just not today.

Our talking point today is facial hair. I hear some you of saying, ‘What has this got to do with fashion?’ Despite a beard not being an item of clothing, it’s wrong to suggest that it has nothing to do with fashion, and that couldn’t be more true today.

Beards have almost become an essential part of the young man’s look. This has been encouraged by many celebrities that endorse the look. I want to discuss the beard itself and how to maintain it so that it stays looking good. It’s not enough to just grow one out and do nothing to keep it under wraps. A scruffy beard definitely does not look good.

Because of this, precautions need to be taken. In my opinion, the longer the beard the better it looks as long as you keep it neat and tidy. I suggest doing the following in order to ensure this.

The first step is making sure you wash your beard regularly. People oddly forget to do this, but it’s easy. Just remember to give it a rinse whenever you are in the shower. It doesn’t need to be a deep wash, so don’t worry about taking too much time over it.

Secondly, and most importantly, you need to try and acquire some form of oil to put in your beard regularly, if not daily. Not just any oil, but something specially made for beards. If you’re looking for a great beard balm then look no further. Head on over to It’s not hard to find some and is definitely the most important thing to keep in mind if it’s your objective to keep your ever-growing beard from looking scruffy.

This is Robert Corr

I’d like to welcome you to I am the admin of this website, but funnily enough my name isn’t Robert, it’s actually Phil.

Robert is a friend of mine who has spent a lifetime working within the fashion industry. In my opinion he is one of the few middle aged men that still continue to have good taste. This website will act as an outlet for him to talk about current trends and what he believes to be a good look. He will also be showcasing designs and styles that he also dislikes.

It’s basically over to him from now on, so look out for a post or too coming in a short while.
