Hello everyone. Just thought I put together a super quick post on a look I think is both practical yet stays true to form as far as fashion is concerned.
It is a very simply look brought to life by a red down and feather Gilet from Marks and Spencer. As you can see, the gilet has all the hallmarks of a casual piece which makes it even more interesting to pair with a smart piece like a suit.
Ok I know every one of you know that coats are an essential part of a man’s wardrobe during the winter season. When it comes to layering, it does not get better than a good ol coat. I mean it’s not rocket science to see the need to invest in one or in my case, seven overcoats. You just need to step outside on a typical winter’s day to find out why they are Apart from the practical purpose of keeping you warm coats also play an important role where style is concerned. One thing I always say is that if you going to wear one, you might as well style it out and make it work for you sartorially.
I am not even going to lie, I was a bit apprehensive the minute I got off BA0109 from London to Dubai last week Thursday. I would like to think of myself as an experienced traveller and have heard many a story about Dubai. Most of the stories have been positive and have been how the Emiratis have managed to turn a piece of dry land into an oasis of wealth and prosperity, albeit with diminishing oil reserves. However, I have also heard stories from cultural sensitive issues such as how to behave in public, to what may sound ridiculous to the average westerner which I won’t go into. Sometimes it’s just a little bit hard to know what is fact and what is Chinese whispers.
I don’t know about you but shopping is one of those things I do not always look forward to it. I do it functionally when I need to and not just as a “hubby” as it were. I have a few friends who feel the same and one of the reasons for this is shop-hopping.
