Manly shopping tour

In case you thought shopping is only for women, after taking the Manly shopping tour you’ll think again. Whether you prefer vintage treasures or international high-street fashion, there is plenty to choose from. If you need something a bit more rough what would be more masculine than a plate of bacon followed by construction gear.
