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 Japanese in London | Anzu restaurant review | Cuts for Him

Apparently, the month of August is counted as summer in London. I guess the weather has other ideas. Well at least for the first two week of August anyway.

I was determined not to allow the gloomy weather to ruin my experience at the new Japanese restaurant called Anzu in St Jame’s market. I wanted to share the experience with my girlfriend whom I invited to join me as she is a foodie too. We got off Piccadilly circus tube station which is the nearest tube station to Anzu. In fact Anzu is less than five minute walk from the station (depending on how fast you walk) which makes it perfect for public transport links.

Seeing that we wanted to have lunch, we got to the restaurant around 2pm and got shown to our seats by a very helpful waitress. As we sat down, I noticed that the restaurant Continue reading The Japanese in London | Anzu restaurant review | Cuts for Him

Cultured in Culture | Government wharf, Freetown

Cultured in Culture, or The Crowd – My people, or Standing out “with” the crowd or so many other titles I could have given this post looking at the photos my sister took of me on holiday in Freetown.

The idea to do this shoot was borne out of a strong desire to capture Freetown or even the people in a way that is very unassuming and unrehearsed. I had no desire to take photos at the plush side of town whether along the peninsular where you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world or indeed on the beautiful hills to the west of town. Government Wharf itself has a long and interesting history but I won’t go into it now. Partly because I do not know much of the history but yeah lets just leave that along shall we lol. So I will leave that to the history buffs out there to dissect.

Big market, Freetown

Now where was I? oh yeah the reason for shooting at the Wharf. I personally think the Wharf represent the true hustle and bustle of Freetown in a way very few places do. It shows a people with unique individual stories that come together for a common purpose. The purpose of buying or to selling, rendering a service or solicit one, to see or to be seen. To chisel Continue reading Cultured in Culture | Government wharf, Freetown

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.
