Love your skin, love Elemis | Cuts for Him review

Coming off the back of my last grooming post, I feel like I am on a roll here. However, I must admit to bringing you this article way later than anticipated.

So back in early October, I had the privilege of being treated to a facial at Elemis’s in-store exchange at John Lewis, Oxford street. Honestly, I have never been so excited about my skin after I got the treatment in a very long time. Within a matter of minutes, I saw my skin being transformed completely. Ok if I sound as if I am completely sold on this product. Having said all that, you must be wondering why it took me this long to Continue reading Love your skin, love Elemis | Cuts for Him review

Men’s grooming starts with Hommage | Cuts for Him

Ok fellas, I have to admit that I dropped the ball a bit on here when it comes to grooming. I guess its a man thing, we love to groom ourselves but do not talk about it half as much as we should. It’s like trying to look good physically but don’t want to admit the number of times you visit the gym to get those chiseled abs lol.

Well, guess what? That’s about to change around here. You will be seeing a lot more grooming articles with a comprehensive review of products I use.

I am absolutely excited to reignite the grooming game with a brand I have known for a number of years now. It’s fairly new in the UK but has strong roots in the US. The name itself will give you a clue about its origin. Hommage is a grooming at it finest. From what I personally know, Hommage is designed specifically for men who want to take their grooming game to the next level. For men who take pride in looking and feeling good.

From it £30 ShaveCare monthly plan to its premium Silver label replenishment package, Hommage has Continue reading Men’s grooming starts with Hommage | Cuts for Him

Shopping experience for gents at the Royal exchange | Cuts for Him

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.

How often do you hear a group of guys plan a shopping trip just for the sakes of recreational purposes? Yep thats right, it does not happen very often. In fact with my experience, the only time guys talk about going to the shops together is when shopping for specific occasions like weddings. We might Continue reading Shopping experience for gents at the Royal exchange | Cuts for Him

John Smedley’s form and structure on Knitwear | Cuts for Him

On Friday last week, I had the privilege of attending the launch of bespoke sculptures by John Smedley’s artist in residence Guy Haddon Grant. This was a collaborative work celebrating their partnered passion for form and construction.

These sculptures were inspired by the machine beds, and movement of both needles and yarn at John Smedley’s factory in Derbyshire. As can be seen on one of the images below, the sculpture has both industrial and delicate characteristics providing a perfect synergy  between the machines and the gentle knitwear produced.

Speaking of knitwear, there has always been one brand that comes to mind every times someone mention the term “knitwear” and that is John Smedely. If you are a lover of good quality knitwear you would have recognised John Smedley as the undisputed leader in this humble yet prestigious garment. Whether it is the roll neck or the polo knitwear, there is no denying the fact that the knitwear exudes elegance and style.

The iconic polo knitwear

One thing I really like about the brand is its unassuming nature. If you notice, the garments do not have visible logos on them. Now that takes a lot of character and assurance Continue reading John Smedley’s form and structure on Knitwear | Cuts for Him
