I have just walked into my flat not so long ago from an event a friend of mine hosted called Beam Talks and was browsing the next for Fashion Week inspirations when I stumbled upon a photo of me. More accurately, a photo of myself and a friend of mine during London Fashion Week Men’s SS18.
I chuckled the minute I saw the photo as it was a bit wired seeing yourself on other people’s publications and you have no idea how your photo got there in the first place. It kind of brought back good memories of SS18 when myself and a few friends decided to check out the event.
Shorts are essential during the hotter period of the year. I personally think every guy needs to invest in at least a couple of shorts whether it is to take with you on that beach holiday or just to wear over the weekend. I mean who wants to be stuck in a pair of thick jeans eh during the summer anyway?
Thanks to my mum, my collection of shorts has grown by one. I am particularly happy with the new addition as it is West African wax print cotton. My mother gifted these pair of trouser to me three years ago and they were long trouser.
For the past couple of months, I have being more happy than usual to display my wrist. Specifically, my left wrist. I did everything from wearing short sleeves to folding up my long sleeves just so my wrist is on display. At this point, it may be more appropriate to say that it was not so much my wrist I wanted people to see but what’s on my wrist. My watch. My brand new Waterbury Classic Timex watch.
I kid you not when I say that London Fashion Week Men’s was not on the list of events I wanted to attend this summer. Having hosted Cuts for Him’s first Fashion Industry Insiders Event a couple of weeks before, I was on the road to recuperating and getting some much needed rest. As you can imagine, Hosting a event which caters for about 200 people was hard work to say the least. So I was perfectly ok with me missing LFWM SS18 and any other event happening around that time.
