The Wigmore | The bar with a Michel Roux Jr menu | Cuts for him

At around 5:45pm yesterday, I shut my bedroom door behind me and rushed to the front door of my flat with my sneakers in one hand and my phone in the other. I was speaking to my sister who was already waiting for me at Oxford circus. We were heading to the preview for the latest and swankiest bar in central London called The Wigmore.

Judging from the tone in my sister’s voice, she was getting slightly impatient waiting for me. She was my plus one for the event and has been looking forward to it ever since I told her about it.

Long story short, we eventually got to The Wigmore and immediately thought to myself this could possibly be my new handout spot. The atmosphere was electric Continue reading The Wigmore | The bar with a Michel Roux Jr menu | Cuts for him

Hotel Barmoi | Sun, sea and a slice of paradise in Freetown

It was about 35 degrees Celsius on a Thursday afternoon when the vehicle I was travelling in pulled up to a gate in Aberdeen, West of Freetown. I chuckled and said to my drive “we don reach sef?”, which translates as “are we here already”. Either I was too busy on my laptop to notice the drove from IMAT (where I was stayed for my holiday), or the journey was much shorter than I anticipated.

My morning coffee fix

By the time the gatekeeper opened the gate to let us in, I was already out of the vehicle and trying to figure out where the reception area was. I absolutely dislike sitting in a vehicle waiting for gates to be opened, drivers to park properly or even being held up in the Freetown traffic. In fact I do not like to be chauffeured around but as someone who cannot drive, I have very little choice in the matter. As a result, I try to spend as little time as possible in any vehicle.  The minute I sense there could be a slight hold up, I am out of the vehicle walking towards my destination.

Cereal for breakfast

I was greeted with a big smile by one of the receptionists as I walked into the air-conditioned waiting area. Good afternoon sir, greeted the polite young lady behind the Continue reading Hotel Barmoi | Sun, sea and a slice of paradise in Freetown

St Jame’s Market official opening | Cuts for Him

London turned out to be great last week with the beautiful summer weather and great vibe that came with it. As you can imagine, I spent most of my time outdoors catching up with friends over a drink or two. However, the absolute highlight of the week was the grand opening of St Jame’s Market in central London.

I was chuffed to bits when I received an invite to the grand opening but was a bit taken aback when I looked up the location. The area which is now the market used to be heavily boarded up the last few times I was in that vicinity.

Upon reading the invite, I saw words and phrases such as performances from classical musicians, lifestyle and fashion, and unwind after work. I was like what Continue reading St Jame’s Market official opening | Cuts for Him

Breakup to makeup with your suit | Cuts for Him

If you are hard-core tailoring look kind of person as myself, there is one skill you must master. Breaking up full suits to form mix and match combos. This skill is particularly important if you do not have a plethora of suits at your disposal.

I don’t know about you but I think there is so much fun in deconstructing (as it were) a suit to form a new look with different elements from another suit. Come to think of it, there isn’t much fun in wearing a full suit beyond picking a suitable tie and Continue reading Breakup to makeup with your suit | Cuts for Him
