Fashion and Function meets to create style | Cuts for Him

Hello everyone. Just thought I put together a super quick post on a look I think is both practical yet stays true to form as far as fashion is concerned.

It is a very simply look brought to life by a red down and feather Gilet from Marks and Spencer.  As you can see, the gilet has all the hallmarks of a casual piece which makes it even more interesting to pair with a smart piece like a suit.

The main purpose of this look is to keep me warm whilst staying stylish. This works well when I want Continue reading Fashion and Function meets to create style | Cuts for Him

Rolling with coat season | Cuts for Him + Maketh the Man

Ok I know every one of you know that coats are an essential part of a man’s wardrobe during the winter season. When it comes to layering, it does not get better than a good ol coat. I mean it’s not rocket science to see the need to invest in one or in my case, seven overcoats. You just need to step outside on a typical winter’s day to find out why they are Apart from the practical purpose of keeping you warm coats also play an important role where style is concerned. One thing I always say is that if you going to wear one, you might as well style it out and make it work for you sartorially.

There are three main ways to rock a coat. The first is to simply hang it over your shoulder and carry it with style. Carrying your coat over your shoulder is stylish but does not do much in terms of its Continue reading Rolling with coat season | Cuts for Him + Maketh the Man

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.

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

The everyday weekend look | Cuts for Him

Ok so this post came a little bit later than planned. The idea was to share it last weekend but as they say, even the best plans do come undone from time to time lol.

This is meant to be a quick post about dressing down whilst staying stylish. As you may already know, suits are my thing. I would wear a suit in my sleep if it were practical lol. However, there is nothing worse than going to an event or a hangout and feeling overdressed. In my opinion, its even worst than being underdressed. Make you feel like a right idiot seeking attention. At least for weddings, formal dinners and other similar occasions, you know you have to dress to the nines. And of course, if you are only hanging out with your boys over a pint down the local bar then by all means roll up with your PJs. Actually, please don’t. You might look like you need help and at best, your mates might use it to laugh at you but you get the point I am trying to make.

So anyway as stated above, the point of this post is to create a simple  but effective look that transcends many Continue reading The everyday weekend look | Cuts for Him
