Man of Many’s Staff Favourites – 24 February 2024

Lately, we’ve covered a lot of ‘Rich People Doing Rich People Things’, from Taylor Swift’s cozy $40k-a-night penthouse to those Aussie CEOs swimming in their cash pools. But for those mere mortals without a private jet, the humble Man of Many team has graciously compiled yet another list of our favourite goodies for your shopping pleasure.

MacroFoodz Meal Kits

Nick Hall – Editor-in-Chief

I’ve eaten a lot of pre-packaged meal plans in my time, from My Muscle Chef to Youfoodz and pretty much every else in between, but I may have finally found a winner. Aussie business MacroFoodz has been steadily fuelling my diet for the past few weeks and I’ve got to say, I am still not sick of the flavours. As someone who doesn’t do well with a heap of carbohydrates, the cauliflower rice options are an absolute game changer for me and I’ve grown quite fond of the Peri-Peri Chicken option. In fact, I literally eat it every single day without exception. If you want to get fit, cut the carbs and save yourself a few hours in the kitchen each week, this handy little Sydney business has you covered.

I recently went down a path of 90s nostalgia. There are plenty of movies and TV shows which satisfy this nostalgia, but nothing quite tugs at the heartstrings more than this classic family movie, and for me, is the cinematic equivalent of getting a long, tight hug.

A movie adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic novel, Matilda tells the story of a girl born in a family which is very different to her. In addition to a quirky parents, she is also hounded by her hot-headed, eccentric principle. She finds her place (and peace) in the world with her teacher, Miss Honey and her mind-bending superpowers.

Featuring the poster child of 90s family movies, Mara Wilson, and the comic geniuses Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito, Matilda is an evergreen wonder which never fails to make my inner child smile.

Jordan Why Not Zer0.3 ‘Washed Coral’

Alex Martinez – Media Sales and Brand Partnerships

I’ve been playing basketball since I have been in nappies. Learning to play as young as I can remember and playing competitively multiple times a week since I’ve been 11. A lifelong passion introduced by my dad who was a huge baller himself and incredibly still playing at the age of 76! My Monday night team includes myself, my older brother and my 76 year old Dad and it’s one of the best and most wholesome things in my life that I cherish beyond words. Naturally, I am heavily into basketball shoes and love seeing the latest releases and being very picky when choosing what shoes I wear out on the court. Currently I am wearing the Jordan Why Not Zer0.3 in ‘Washed Coral Pink’. A collaboration between Nike, Jordan and Russell Westbrook. Absolutely love the controlled chaos design of this shoe, particularly the Velcro strap above the laces.

Mon Tout Lo-Fi Wines

John Guanzon – Head of Social

As we draw a close to the month of love, I thought it’d only be fitting to give a special mention to some of my favourite wines I sipped on in February. Right at the top of the list is Mon Tout Wines, a Western Australian wine project completely dedicated to making lo-fi natural wines along the Margaret River, with minimal intervention. ‘Mon Tout’ in French translates to ‘my everything’ and is a venture of a young, second-generation vintner, Richard Burch, son of Jeff and Amy Burch of Burch Family Wines. The wines are crafted from small parcels of hand-picked fruit from sustainably farmed vineyards and are made with natural ferments.

They are then bottled without filtration or fining and with minimal to no sulphur (100% vegan friendly) and have been packaged in eye-catching, colourful, pastel-toned labels. I was kindly sent three of their 2023 vintage releases: Heydays, Strange Love, and Kind Animals, each a lo-fi, minimal-intervention wine. My favourite would have to be a toss-up between the Strange Love Rose and Heydays Chardonnay. What I love about lo-fi and natural wines is that they offer a unique and exciting alternative to your run-of-the-mill, mass-produced wines. Their flavour profiles can usually be a bit more unpredictable and while they may not be for everyone, if you’re looking to sip something a little different and more in tune with nature, they’re worth a sip!

Zara Knit Polos & Shirts

Scott Purcell – Co-Founder

I’ll admit, despite running a men’s lifestyle and fashion site for a living, my clothes and style suck. I’m usually more of a Uniqlo basics kind of guy (not implying at all that they are bad), but they fit my need for smart-casual style at a reasonable price. But after hearing more and more about looksmaxxing (I’m being sarcastic by the way) and the ridiculousness behind it, I thought it was time to step up my game. So this week, I’ve invested in a few statement shirts from Zara that can upgrade my standard jeans and black t-shirt. Below are the four I purchased if you’re in the market yourself.

Lululemon Beyondfeel Running Shoe

Marcus Hurley – Sales and Partnerships Manager

I admit that I have ventured into a Lululemon store once or twice, always following behind my partner as she looks at the latest and greatest Lululemon offering. I often found myself firmly planted in the “husband chair” whilst she finalised her purchases. My attitude has now done a complete 180 as I have been introduced to the sophisticated, stylish and well engineered world of Lululemon’s men’s offering.

If you are anything like me, you run your runners into the ground until they can no longer stay on your feet. So when it came time to look for a new pair of shoes, my new found fondness of Lululemon found me holding a pair of the new Beyondfeel running shoes.

There are seven different combinations of materials, foam compounds and construction methods that go into their men’s models and this results in offering superior comfort for anyone’s feet. I don’t really know what any of that really means, but they were comfortable, light and looked great!

The new styles in the Lululemon range (Cityverse, Beyondfeel running and Beyondfeel trail) will hit Australian shores on March 19th and I can’t recommend them enough.
