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

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.

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
