Add some colour to your wardrobe | Cuts for Him

Living in England, its not very common to see men wearing colourful suits. In fact you will never see any man within the square mile of the financial district wearing anything apart from navy, black or grey.

In as much as I kind of see why bankers and people working within the square mile or canary wharf might opt for subtle colours, I kind of wish the rest of mankind would just be a bit more bold with colours.

If I am honest, I kind of empathise for those of you who have never tried bright colours before especially with suits. I mean why stick out when you can just blend in right? Wrong my friends. Blending in never gets you noticed and it certainly Continue reading Add some colour to your wardrobe | Cuts for Him

Shirt of the season | Labrum + Cuts for Him

So you know how sometimes I do super short blog articles? Well this post is going to be one of them.

I just want to share with you shots of how I styled my favourite shirt right now. Some time last year, I had the pleasure of working with Labrum London on his AW16 collection. Since then, I have been meaning to show off this shirt but wanted to wait until summer this year.

In all honesty, I have only worn this shirt like 4 times since I got it and kid you not that I always get some one walk up to me to say how much they like it. It also got great feedback Continue reading Shirt of the season | Labrum + Cuts for Him

The boohoo trouser you can wear all summer | Cuts for Him

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend and are looking forward to an amazing week. I know I am looking forward to a great week.

This is a quick post about a pair of trouser from BoohooMAN. I would encourage you to ready this post to get the full story behind these trouser.

In short, I wanted one of BoohooMAN’s dapper suits from their new tailoring range but there was a slight mix up. The mix up meant that I had a different pattern of trouser Continue reading The boohoo trouser you can wear all summer | Cuts for Him

Ice Cream for BoohooMAN | Cuts for Him

I am super excited to be working with BoohooMAN. You must be thinking why would Cuts for Him be excited about a company that makes casual wear. Ha, well that’s where the story gets interesting.

BoohooMan has launched their first full tailoring range and I had the pleasure of working with them to showcase just how versatile their current collection is. I was literally spoilt for choice choosing a suit to style from their tailoring range.

In the end, I went for a slim-fit double breasted suit which really stood out to me. Of course I was looking forward to my new suit but then discovered upon delivery that the warehouse sent me a mismatching trouser with the jacket. Was the mistake done by the warehouse or did I make it?

Instinctively, I placed the jacket and trouser into the return parcel to send it back. But then I thought, what good am I as a stylist if I can’t think on my feet and style a look I have not planned for. For every challenge, there is an opportunity I said to myself.

So instead of sending them back, I styled both separately. The fact that I was able to style them separately shows just how versatile BoohooMan’s tailoring range is.

I will show you how I styled the trouser in another blog post.

I paired the jacket with a plain navy dress trouser. Matching my favourite white sneakers was a white crew neck t-shirt.

My pocket square of choice for the day was a tasty cone ice cream with toppings.

The inspiration behind this look was the sunny weather in London.

Let me know your thoughts on this look.
