The Rock's premier male care haven Totally Male celebrated its 28th anniversary Saturday last, at its Windsor Avenue location in Kingston. The celebration pulled in a slew of long-standing clients, family, friends and employees who reminisced, in a relaxed backyard vibe, complete with scrumptious food courtesy of Jungle Fiah Restaurant, on the almost three-decade journey.

Sandra Samuels, Totally Male CEO and founder, in taking guests down memory lane, shared, "When I first started this entrepreneurial journey I was in fashion, catering to men. It was a daunting task with many a naysayer telling me that men don't like to spend! This, I must say, is one of the biggest misconceptions. Men will take the time out to take care of themselves. Totally Male came about as a result of wanting to create an exclusive hub that speaks to everything male... I dare say it's been mission accomplished. We have built a strong family with our all-female team and we look forward to further expansion of the brand. I want to thank all of the men who continue to trust us."
