The Grand Tour is Out!

Post by Mark

grandtour

Amazon launched the first episode of The Grand Tour starring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. The first episode was so fucking good, I honestly had gotten bored of Top Gear the past few seasons but The Grand Tour so far looks like they’ve taken the best bits of Top Gear, made them better and then killed off some of the more slower boring segments. I loved it and can’t wait till the next episode.

The Grand Tour is available to watch on Amazon, so if you have an Amazon Prime account check it out. You watch it on your browser or with one of Amazon’s devices, I used the Fire Stick. Here is the [Link]

Cleaning Suede Sneakers with KLEAN

Post by Mark

Before

The other day when I posted about cleaning UltraBoosts a reader asked me how I cleaned my suede sneakers. I didn’t have an answer since I hadn’t had any success cleaning the suede sneakers I had. In fact, because I had so much trouble cleaning my suede sneakers I decided I wouldn’t ever buy any again. But, a reader mentioned he used the laundromat Delicates to clean his suede shoes so I decided I would send my sneakers out to get cleaned as well.

I called Delicates up but they wanted KD15 to clean my sneakers. That might be worth it if they were Yeezys or expensive sneakers, but the sneakers I wanted to clean cost me like KD40 new so wasn’t going to spend 15 getting them cleaned. I then decided to use the new app KLEAN. The cost came out to be KD2.750 including pick up and delivery. It took them two days and I just got back my sneakers this morning. They’re clean again!

Although the pictures here don’t really show it well, my grey suede sneakers were pretty dirty with black dark markings on the side and the top had started tinting towards a yellow grey tone. Now the sneakers no longer have the dark scuff marks and the color is back to a neutral grey again. So I’d definitely recommend them and at KD2.750 it’s a good deal. They currently have a promo running on my blog where you can also get a 25% discount if you use the code 248AM25. For more info check out their sponsored post on the main page [Here]

How to Clean White Ultra Boosts

Post by Mark

beforeultraboost

I’ve had two white pairs of Ultra Boosts, the first pair I used to clean with Jason Markk’s sneaker cleaner and brush. Problem was it didn’t clean that well and the brush kinda fucked up the material. With my second pair I just started throwing it into the washing machine and putting it on a quick cycle and the results are perfect.

afterultraboost

I just remove the insoles from inside the sneaker and throw it into a washing machine with a towel (reduces the banging sound). I don’t even remove the laces. I also don’t use bleach, just regular detergent and the result is a like new brilliant white Ultra Boost as you can see in the before and after pictures. I now do this once a week since the white gets dirty fairly quickly. It also drys quickly, if I wash the sneakers at night, they’re dry and ready to wear the next morning.

BMW Films: The Escape

Post by Mark

BMW and Clive Owen are back together again for another series of action-packed short films. The first films came out 15 years ago and they were intense, beautifully directed and stared different famous actors.

This time around the series is called ‘The Escape’ and the first film is out and is directed by Neill Blomkamp, the guy behind Elysium and District 9. It’s too good, watch it above.
