Everyone has their individual interests when it comes to booking a getaway, so we’ve pinned down some of the most unusual holidays and intriguing destinations to cover all sorts of different tastes. No matter whether you’re buzzing to get boozing or seeking out some adventure, there’s a destination out there to satisfy your cravings.

An Afternoon with Murdock London


Recently some of our Mankind men visited the renowned Murdock London salon for a couple of critical treatments ahead of a very important day. With pre-wedding nerves starting to set in, this groom and best man duo knew that if any salon was going to get them looking ship shape and styled for the big event, it would be the Murdock London salon.

Nestled within a narrow backstreet in Shoreditch, the salon is instantly recognisable for its distinctive striped canopy and bold blue shop front. As soon as the guys were greeted in from the dreary April showers by the fine fragrances of signature Murdock cologne and grooming products, they knew that they were in safe hands. With a natural wooden undertone running throughout the room, the salon brings the fresh and free-spirited feel of the great outdoors to the cosy Shoreditch shop floor.

Here at Mankind we’ve picked out some of the most memorable men from the Met Gala 2015 for a bit of spring style inspiration, so guys, get ready to take notes…
