The ultimate summer suit

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

Mr Porter Summer Social 2016 – Cuts For Him

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.

Mr Porter Gelato

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.

The Gelato was great!

Upon arrival at the Mr Porter social which was held at the rooftop Ham Yard Hotel, we were served cold  Sipsmith Gin cocktails which I must admit hit the spot bang on. Continue reading Mr Porter Summer Social 2016 – Cuts For Him

Canon Gig Meet

When i place my name on the waiting list for a chance to get a ticket for Canon’s InstaMeet I honestly did not think I was going to get one.  Canon InstaMeet events are highly sought as they are as exclusive as they come.

When I got an email a few days later confirming my place at their latest gig, i was over the moon. I literally had to cancel plans I had that evening to make sure I was there.

As expected, the event was a massive success. We were first of all treated to some drinks and snacks which i must say I was not able to take full advantage of as I had just had a heavy late lunch before I got to Somerset house where the event was held.

For the secret gig, three bands were lined up with the first to perform being Liskka, the second The Bloom, and lastly Bent Ref.

At the end of concert we were ushered in to view the amazing exhibition celebrating the life of Stanley Kubrick.

Here are a few of the photos I took. I hope you like them. Tell me what you think in the comment section below.

T.M. Lewin – Heritage is the word

The first T.M. Lewin store opened in Jermyn street in 1898. Yes, that’s like 118 years ago when T.M. Lewin opened it doors to the public. I couldn’t believe it when I found out through Louis the origins and history of this noble brand. Louis was the host of this exclusive in-store styling session where I was one of only five bloggers invited.

I was made to understand that some of the fabric used by T.M. lewin is made exclusively by a company in Scotland by invitation only. I have to admit that I was amazed at what I refer to as the rich history of this high street store. Continue reading T.M. Lewin – Heritage is the word

Blogosphere cover reveal – Bloggers’ mag

About a month ago, I went to a cover reveal for a magazine called Blogosphere which I was featured in. Blogosphere is an internationally distributed publication written by bloggers for bloggers. In fact, this was my very first feature in a magazine and as it happens, my first cover reveal party. I was quite chuffed when I received an email from the Editor-In-Chief herself Alice Audley inviting me to the party. Even thought I was featured in it, I did not know what to expect in the content of the magazine or the format of the party.

IMG_8864

Before I go any further, I have a massive confession to make. Prior to my feature, I had never bought blogosphere or indeed read to back to back. Awkward right? Wait till you hear the rest of the confession. I actually do not like reading at all and would do anything I can to avoid it. As a blogger and Continue reading Blogosphere cover reveal – Bloggers’ mag

To Jump or not to Jump – A matter of faith

Every now and then I like to blog about things other than fashion and this is one of those times. I know I know you all came here to read about how I put my outfits together but I need you all to lend me your eyes and your minds for five minutes so I can talk you about the importance of believing in yourself and having faith

IMG_0748

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” Holy bible – There you have it, love wins all the time, but allow me to talk a bit about faith today.

As you guys know I have recently visited Croatia, specifically I went to Dubrovnik. You have to visit Dubrovnik to get a full idea of just how beautiful it really is. When you get there, and I really urge you to go there, the best place to get a bird’s eye view of the historic old town and its surroundings is at the top of the Srd hill (it’s a mountain, clearly me and the Croatians define things differently) . I kid you not when I say the views are breath taking. On one side of Continue reading To Jump or not to Jump – A matter of faith

Cuts for him at LCM SS17: 4 looks in 4 days

I find it interesting that a lot of Londoners do not know about London Collections Men (LCM). I have lost count on the amount of times i receive a blank stare whenever I mention LCM to people. I am like, where have you been? But of course, not everyone is into fashion right.

With Model and Photographer Johannes Huebl

Just in case you are reading this and do not know what LCM is all about, it is a bi-annual event (January and June) where everything pertaining to men’s fashion is exhibited through runway or presentation. Designers and fashion houses showcase their best designs for the coming season so that buyers (wholesale) have the privilege of product live before putting in orders.

How far would you go for the perfect shot

If you have been reading my blog then you would know that i love travelling to discover new places. Honestly, there are a few things i love doing more than travelling. The excitement i get from travelling is just wonderful as i try to document my experience through photographs. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so wherever i go, my camera goes.

On my last trip to Croatia, i bought a vintage Canon as a gift but thought i try it out first before giving it out to the new owner. In the spirit of trying it out to make sure it is in good working condition, i thought i push my photography limit as to how far i can go for a perfect shot. Have a look at the photos below.

That early summer look

Nothing says “summer” better than a light coloured blazer with a pair of trainers. Once you get these two items right, what you choose to wear in-between is completely up to you.

IMG_1330

Let me get straight into it and list out what I wore on an evening out on my most recent holiday.

Blazer: If you’ve been reading my blog for at least a few months then you would know that I put a lot of emphasis on my blazers. As I mentioned in this piece I did with Mazda last year, a blazer has the potential to transform your entire look. A well cut blazer is that perfect bridge between casual and smart. You can Continue reading That early summer look

In celebration of the greatest gift ever known!

This is another quick but personal post I put together for you all. A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of two wonderful people, Emmanuel and Deborah. You may remember from a previous post that I promised to share more photos of this wonderful couple’s special day. In the spirit of staying true to my word, I have selected a few photos to share with you all which I hope will give you an idea of how the occasion went.

IMG_9668

You might be wondering why I chose to share such an intimate occasion on my blog. Well first of all, the wonderful couple gave me permission to share their big day and as one of the official photographers I wanted to indulge you all a lil bit. Lol. But most importantly, Emmanuel was a friend who became a brother to me through our church fellowship group. He is one person who I can confidently say that he added value to my walk with Christ in the past three years and has helped me grow in my faith.
