Principesa Margareta

Segarcea estate is a landmark of quality production as it was first intended by its founder, HM King Carol I of Romania. In sign of recognition and gratitude, today's Crown's Domain Segarcea remains dedicated to the values in force at its foundation in 1884 - excellence, tradition, love and respect towards the land.

Principesa Margareta wine is Romania's first 100% Marselan, plated in Segarcea vineyard in 2005. The production was limited to 6 tones per hectare, in order to ensure a perfect amount of extract. Aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. Flavors range from strawberry jam to fresh raspberries, tobacco, spices, cocoa, rum, coconut and fine leather. A long and elegant aftertaste of licorice and milk chocolate stands as a proof of the wine's long aging ability.

This wine comes in a 75cl bottle, it contains 13,5% alcohol and it has a fine decorated cartoon box. It was produced in 2009 and its price is 11,5 €.


Alain Delon

Actually this post should sound like: "Alain Delon ." And that's it. Because he is one of the sacred monsters of  cinema and one of the most charismatic men in the entire World, ever. Sure he is 80 years old today being born in November 8th 1935, but he has a great career behind and he was in many situations a role model for people around the world. He was a great French actor playing in more than 100 movies, some of them in Hollywood. More than his movie characters, his spirit and his charm made all women dream and all men think at him as the one they want to become.

Delon was born in  Île-de-France, a suburb of Paris. He went in French Navy fighting as a marine during First Indochina War 1953-1954. He spent 11 months in jail and returned home in 1956. He worked as a porter, waiter, secretary and sales assistant. In 1957 he met Brigitte Auber and she introduced him in Cannes Film Festival. After this he made his film debut - "Quand la femme s'en mele". He publicly declared giving up acting in 1997 but he is still occasionally accepting roles.

He had a full life with a lot of girlfriends, many wives and children. He played a lot of characters in his movies and he became a successful businessman. He bought trotters and promoted fights. He was a movie producer, as well and launched a perfume under his name. Now his brand sells a variety of products as wristwatches, clothing, eyewear, stationery and cigarettes. Delon sunglasses are very popular in Hong Kong since a famous local actor, Cun-Yun-fat, wore them in a movie.

Alain Delon is politically involved in right wing French movement  - National Front - since 2013 when he declared his support for this party and MGC - in Switzerland. He is citizen of Switzerland, too, living in Geneva canton with his two youngest children. All his business are based in Switzerland as well.


Red Oak - Shiraz/Merlot

Red Oak is a red wine originated from South Eastern Australia made from 2 kinds of grapes: Merlot and Shiraz. Shiraz is the Australian national grape type. Merlot is a vine variety well known for its warm softness. The combination of these amazing grapes is giving a wine with a great radiance. 

This is a wine which can be served in the presence of a menu containing a well spiced steak and cheese. It contains 13,5% alcohol, it comes in a 75cl bottle and its price is 8-10 €. 


Ed Westwick Style

Speaking of Chuck Bass, let's say he is impersonated by an English actor named Ed Westwick. 

Following his fashion and style let's try to be Chuck Bass for one day. What do we need ? First we need to find on ebay.co.uk his clothes. This search will start with a long-sleeved buttondown shirt, preferably white color. Its price is 5,48 £ on which means 9 €. The argyle jersey vest, white-red color costs 30 €. We found the bow tie with a price of 4 €. Kaki shorts cost 30 €, too. Argyle socks can be bought for 9,50 €. And the brown-cream shoes cost 20 € as well. This means 102,50 € for this outfit. All the prices including shipping, of course.

If interested you can wear one of the watches presented before and get a glass of quality wine in your left hand (the right hand has to remain free in the way to meet new people). Now you're irresistible.  

Plenty Of Fish In The Sea...

"...But only one Bass!" This is a well know quote from a TV movie called "Gossip Girl". I am pretty sure you know what I am talking about. Yes, his name is Chuck Bass. The most elegant movie character in the last 10 years.

If we're speaking about how a real man should like, this is the perfect model of the 2010's. Let's not involve here the character in the movie. I am talking about outfit and attitude. 

In the picture above you  may see what I am talking about. It is pretty hard for a man to wear a purple butterfly tie. Not when your name is Bass. But the maximum of this picture are the red "Hunter" rubber boots. Until next time...

Casio Pro Trek

Another day, another watch. This not a star but is a very good watch. I bought this Casio Pro Trek -500 in 1997. This makes it a vintage watch, right ? And it is still in a good condition. It has multiple functions: barometer, termometer, crono, double screen, green light and is very light comparing its size. This happens because its case is made from a special aluminium-titanium alloy.

What is so special about this watch ? Not much. The most important thing is: this watch has almost 20 years since produced and you can still be cool wearing it. Never got out of style. You can wear such a watch when you do sports: outdoor, indoor, when swimming. It is very resistant an water proof. If you're interested you can buy this model on ebay. The price of it is 175£ - around 200 €.



I don't know if this trend is really representing the men with style, but is becoming more popular with time. Lumbersexuals are men who grow a beard and want to cultivate this outdoor based personality. This lifestyle comes with a specific haircut and look. 

There is already developing an entire industry based on this urban culture. There are beard care products on sale, there exists furniture pieces based on this kind of personality. Actually these kind of men like to build their own furniture using rough, unfinished wooden pieces.
Speaking about this culture and life style, I have a pinterest channel, as well: Hugh LeDuc's pinterest . You can find more pictures like this and more other interesting things there. 

Do you know people who are following this trend ? Feel free to comment and tell us more about being and lumbersexual.


David Beckham

When we are speaking about "men with style" we should talk about David Beckham. He is one of the most representative men in this category.

Such a watch costs around 11.500 € . You can wear it in a vacation or for travel. The best option is if you're plane pilot. Otherwise it can be useful for a trip in middle of nature or wilderness.
