The backpack that packs a punch | Cuts for Him

I can honestly say that I have never been this excited about a backpack before. You know how sometimes one does not know they need something until they get it? Yep, that was the feeling I got when I first received my Caxton Sport backpack from Eddie.

I have always been a duffel or messenger/briefcase bag user due to may style of dress. I thought using the above two types of bags was the true essence of the smart or smart-casual Continue reading The backpack that packs a punch | Cuts for Him

That 1930s inspired look | Cuts for Him

So basically I asked my good friend @charlesnaso (@augustusnas) to do this 30s fashion inspired shoot last year knowing he always gives me the shots I want. It is always a joy working with this brother.

The idea for this look is to channel a 1930s gent with a modern twist. As modern fashion continue to edge more towards street style, from time to time, I try to recapture the essence of a true gent from the perspective of style. Portraying a Continue reading That 1930s inspired look | Cuts for Him

Sun is out, shorts out | African wax print style

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?

Short: my mum | Trainers – Suitsupply | T Shirt – Zara | Glasses – Garett Leight | Watch – Timex

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.

I absolutely love the green and brown colours of the prints but was not keen on the fact that they were long. The print Continue reading Sun is out, shorts out | African wax print style

Fashion Industry Insiders Event – SS17

Hello everyone!!!!

It has been a hot minute since I blogged about anything at all. If you do not follow me on Instagram or twitter, you might be wondering why the silence on the blog.

The team that made it all happen. I own them a lot of gratitude

Well let me start my apologising for the long silence. In my defence, I was pursuing something that I thought all you Cuts for Him followers would be interested in. I have been busy planning and hosting my very first Fashion Industry Insiders Event. Remember the series I did earlier this year call Industry Insiders? Yep the one I sat down with some bloggers, stylists, models and writers? So that series inspired an event which by the looks of things won’t be a one off.

Full line of guest speakers. From L-R: Geoff, Megan, Karlo, Charles, and Alya.

I don’t think I have ever been this busy in my whole life the way I have been in the past 6 weeks. But I can honestly say that it has been  truly worth it.

The aim of Fashion Industry Insiders Event is to bridge the gap between established Fashion industry professionals and newcomers to the industry. An amazing panel of experts was put together to deliver short talks and share insider’s expertise and insight.

Guests being interviewed by the 888 crew

We wanted to create an ideal setting for networking with industry professionals who will provide Continue reading Fashion Industry Insiders Event – SS17
