Hayden Christiansen, best known for his roles in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, New York, I Love You and Jumper, started designing his own line of clothing with help from RW & Co. I guess that’s what happens when your acting career hasn’t kicked into full gear. You can check out the new line here.

Good for him for designing this line of menswear. Should be interesting to see where this takes off from here or if he remains a cameo designer.

A little men’s fashion tip for today.
helmIf you haven’t already checked out 104th Street’s The Helm then you’re missing out. Part of my spring MANual here is a look at the Helm’s favourite Spring picks. Be sure to check out the store located on Edmonton’s 4th Street Promenade: 10125104 Street.

Tip For The Day:
For those looking for something to do Friday night, make sure you hit up The Bower to hear this guy ~ Marlon English spin. He will be in Edmonton monthly for the Bower’s (Semi Monthly) Strictly Goods night. A little hip hop, a little funk and a lot of soul.

MANual 0.1

To the men who follow my blog, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce a new series called “MANual“. This will feature top fashion, trends, local restaurant gems, and perhaps I’ll throw in a few post script notes on “Did you know?…”, “Tips on Etiquette…” and “Keep Your Eye On…”. From the female perspective (or just mine).

Stay tuned for lunch segments and Edmonton trends for mens fashion, decor, the odd Scotch post and more!
