From the office to the weekend! Ok strictly speaking, from the office to the weekend via a bar or even a night out. Sounds about right? Just reading that must have given you a good feeling knowing how much you’ve been looking forward to the weekend.Unless you do shift work where you are required to work weekends or have the privilege to work from home, that feeling is all too familia.

Fridays are notoriously known as laid-back days at the office, nicely setting the tone for the coming couple of days.
For this reason, a lot of offices tend to adopt a more casual dress code for staff members. Most corporate offices have a dress code which is in line with looking smart. From Monday to Thursday, one is expected to “play ball” (as it were) with these rules and let your hair down on a Friday. However, we have all seen the odd staff member who’ve pushed the barrier out just a bit too far. I mean some of the things I have seen people wear into a corporate environment is truly cring worthy. From wearing flip flops to Continue reading From the office to the Weekend→
Budapest is one of those European cities that is sure to leave a lasting impression on your mind once you visit. The sumptuous traditional cuisine known as Goulash, welcoming hot baths, historic architecture, and its unique chain bridge are a few things amongst many that will leave you wanting for more. Budapest is the capital of Hungary. It is divided into two half by the Danube river with Buda on one side and Pest on the other. This great city is said to attract over 4 million tourists a year from all over the world. With its extensive world heritage sites, you can see why so many people visit this city.
I would be doing this beautiful city a disservice if I should even attempt to do a detail write up about it. So for this reason, here is Budapest in pictures.
I had the pleasure of working with one of my favourite streetwear brands about two months ago. This brand had been on my radar since January during LCM AW16. The truth is, I should have done a collaboration with them back then but time did not permit. So allow me to introduce you to Labrum.
Labrum is a modern menswear brand founded by a gentleman called Foday Dumbuya in 2014. It is a London based brand with all the pedigree and influence of this Continue reading Cuts for him + Labrum→
Hello everyone. It has been over three weeks since i posted anything at all. I was away on holiday but hope to share with you some of the things i got up to. I am happy to be back and look forward to publishing more articles and work with you all.
To kick things off, here are some of the photos i took at the London Fashion Weekend SS17. I was delighted to get a special invite by Canon UK whom i have worked with before. I must say it is always a pleasure to work with Canon and here is to many more in the future.
A Khaki suit is one of the best investments a man can ever make for the summer season. I know we are almost at the end of the summer now but bear with me as this might be handy for next season. Who knows, you might even get a good bargain on a similar suit in the sale to stock up for next summer.
My Khaki suit turned out to be an unexpected hit for this summer as I try to look smart but relaxed at the same time. The truth is I only bought myself one by chance as i walked into a Paul Smith discount store in July looking for a pair of shoes. I came out of that store 30 minutes later with a pair of brogues and a new suit not realising that the suit was going to be a hit.
I think it is fair to say that I haven’t been this excited about grooming and perfumes in a while. On Wednesday the 17th of August, I was invited to the Tom Ford beauty product launch for the Holiday 2016 collection which took place at the Arts club in London.
As the title indicates, I have never before owned an all white suit or anything close. I have always been of the mind set that a white suit is hard work to maintain and purely seasonal. I can literally think of less than a handful of occasions where I can boldly wear one to.
Before I say a word, I want you all to know that working with Tom Ford beauty has been fun and insightful. From breakfast meetings to photo shoot, there has not been a single dull moment.
Tom Ford as you may all know is one of the most recognisable names in the fashion and beauty business. The company prides itself in the quality of its products combined with beautiful craftsmanship resulting in a luxury brand. It is a wonder how Tom Ford has become such a great household name in a relatively short period since its inception in 2005. I mean the company is barely 20 years old but yet commands a good chunk of the luxury market.
I can only put this success down to the great work ethos and vision of the man at the helm, Mr Tom Ford. Of course Mr Tom Ford did not just pop out of the woodwork to create this brand but have Continue reading Tom Ford beauty + Cuts for Him→
For those in England, the weather has been kind to us in the past few days. Some might even add that it has been too kind as garments and layers are falling off due to the “excessive” heat. I try not to complain as I know I’d rather this hot weather any day to a rainy or snowy one. Truth be told, its easier to keep warm than to cool down but like I said, give me a hot day over a cold one any time. As Brits, our conversations are never a few sentences away from talking about the weather. Its like we just love to talk about the weather. It is a conversation starter and I can see why most people would use it as an ice breaker. Everyone can relate to the conditions of the weather. Anyway enough about the weather already.
The reason for this post is to show you my ultimate summer, or should I say hot weather suit. Summers in England are no guarantee for hot weather as you may know. So really and truly, I should change the title of the post from “summer suit” to “hot weather suit” right? Nah I think I will leave it as it is. Continue reading The ultimate summer suit→
If there is one summer social event most bloggers want to be at then it is the Mr Porter Summer Social. I have heard of similar Mr Porter events before but never had the opportunity to at one until the very last day of London Collections: Men.
The Mr Porter social was just what the Dr prescribed after four days of running to shows and navigating photographers keen to snap away at anyone who looks wired enough. Seems like the more wired one look these days the more attention you command. Nothing to do with practicality and sensible clothing anymore but hey that is a topic for another day.
