A cavern for carnivores, the recently re-constructed, Beast Bar and Grill at the Landmark, is the ultimate pit stop in Kuala Lumpur this month. The classy steakhouse oozes nonchalance with its old Hollywood/Wes Anderson inspired interiors and delectable offerings of tenderloin, rib eye, striploin and porterhouse depending on your preferred lean-to-fat ratio, marbling and thickness. The meat cuts are cooked to perfection.in a Josper oven, the perfect chef’s tool made to model a charcoal barbecue set; resulting in steaks that are charred on the outside and full of flavour with a distinct smokiness throughout the meat.
Address: BEAST Bar & Grill, Ground Floor, The Intermark, Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur.

Designed for functionality, JanSport has found a way to incorporate flexibility into each one of their designs which are extremely well made and stylish, but maintain a 30 year warranty which gives piece of mind on making any purchase on this brand.
I have a very "clean" approach to dressing I like simple clothing in neat, block colours and with EZRA we try to develop something to that effect, while also producing a lot on-trend styles in the way the clothing is detailed- like pockets on shirts and polo’s...or using contrasting fabrics on waistbands for trousers, shorts and shirt plackets.
I was raised by my grandparents and my grandfather left a very lasting impression on how a man should carry himself. He was retired but I never saw him out of a tailored shirt, tie, trousers, a cardigan and leather derby shoes. I polished his shoes twice a week from the age of 7 until 12...and that habit hasn't left me; I more or less do the same with my own shoes now.
From adolescence onward I moved to London, where I suppose you could say my signature style was 'sealed'. London exists and functions on varying cultural extremes, which in turn produces the most amazing music, art and fashion.

WHAT IS THE BEST FASHION ADVICE YOU COULD IMPART TO MEN?
To quote Don Draper: "Make it simple...but significant"
When all else fails, make the socks prevail! I like a clean tailored look, simple but with a good dose of quirk!
