About the book

In conjunction with Movember, we’ve put together the ultimate gentleman’s guide to the sizzling city of Hong Kong. An intriguing blend of east-meets-west and modernity juxtaposed against history and tradition, the city packs a punch and we invite you to explore traditional barbershops, stylish menswear boutiques, decadent drinking dens and more with us. CLICK to download for free.

After years of playing second fiddle to other Asian countries, The Lion City has emerged with a mighty roar and the good folks at Movember can attest to that. Our mini guide to the best barbershops, hipster haunts down-home bbq joints will satisfy the most manly of mustached mavens.  CLICK to download for free.

Ah London. A great man once said, “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.” How very true. It was nearly impossible to curate this Movember guide, as London is blessed with an abundance of hotspots for the discerning gentleman.  A slew of indie record shops, buzzing java joints and backstreet boozers are on offer here. CLICK to download for free.

Sydney-siders will agree that this is the best city in the world. It’s genetically blessed with beauty and sunshine, great food and shopping. The HUNT Movember will take you to a coffee shop/motorcycle showroom, minimalist Danish interiors shop and into a very special place where you can have a gin and a trim. How very handy. CLICK to download for free.

New York baby. Every man should live in, or at least visit NYC a minimum of once in his life. This is a veritable playground for everything and anything you can imagine; from the weird and the wonderful, to the wonderfully weird.  We’ll lead you down the backstreets of Brooklyn to the middle of Manhattan for bites, bevvies, shopping and shaving. CLICK to download for free.

Melbourne is synonymous with unreliable weather and great coffee. But there’s so much more. Melbournites are fiercely proud of their buzzing city, and rightly so.  It’s is heaving with unique things to do: Pop into an independent bookstore to pick up a tome or two, check out a brilliant one stop shop with men’s grooming, tailoring, a café and a shoemaker, and explore a quirky curiosities store, to name but a few intriguing options. CLICK to download for free.

Ok, enough with the sheep jokes. There are some very cool peeps here who are definitely not following the shepherd.  It’s the largest city in New Zealand and you’ll find homegrown and international menswear on offer, swanky whiskey bars for a snifter or two, and some pretty mean cuisine from all over the world. CLICK to download for free.

Windy Wellington is New Zealand’s capital city and is rather majestic; with a rugged coastline, green, hilly peaks and a beautiful harbor. It’s known for a thriving arts, culture and culinary scene, and there’s plenty to keep the mo’ed man busy – from gastropub grub to date night destinations, we’ve collected the cream of the crop for you. CLICK to download for free.
