I cannot believe we are approaching the half way mark for 2018. I mean it feels like only a few weeks ago when everyone was talking about New Year’s Resolutions and how they were going to hit all their targets. I for one created very ambitious targets and things I want to achieve by the end of 2018. I have to say I am not doing so bad in some areas whilst other areas leave a lot to be desired.
Anyway, on the plus side, we have entered the season of celebrations, events, and occasions. Warmer weather temperatures are usually a good indication that events and occasions such as weddings, horse racing, and proms are about to kick off. Whatever the occasion, it is important to get the outfit right. The last thing you want to do is show up at a pool party in a Tuxedo, or show up at a black-tie event wearing a very colourful suit. Sometimes the name of the event gives a clue as to how to dress. However, the challenge of how to put the look together still remain. You honestly do not want to stick out for the wrong reasons at an event but rather, turn heads.
The look and style I will be focusing on today is the black tie or formal look. I have partnered with Marks and Spencer’s tailoring to show you how to put together a Prom worthy attire for men, using a tuxedo.
And just like that, 2017 is gone. I can still remember vividly every key moment of my work on Cuts for Him like it just happened. From my trips to the middle east to having a key meeting with one of my favorite grooming brand, Elemis. The sketches I make before a shoot, to waiting for the golden hour to shoot the perfect pictures. Oh, the memories. 2017 was a great year for Cuts for Him. I may need a couple of months to properly label 2017 but I know for sure that it was a key year in the life of Cuts for Him. A year of creative expansion and opened opportunities. Opportunities to work with bigger brands and better creatives.
To help me articulate, here are photos of key work and places I went to in 2017:
The above shot was taken for a piece I did on identity. The piece itself is called Cultured in Culture and can be found here if you fancy reading it. One of my most personal pieces.
Like the first photo, this one just above is a personal one. In fact, it started the Cultured in Culture series. This series looks at being born in one culture but growing up in another. The crossroads these cultures brought into my life. Have a read here.
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.
So I got an email on Thursday afternoon from a PR company on behalf of Marks and Spencer inviting me to an exclusive event called Tailoring Talk. If I were to be honest, I almost deleted the email as I was only skimming through my inbox getting rid of spam emails sent by so called social media companies promising to make me a “star” on social media. You can imagine the annoyance. Anyway I am digressing lol.
So I read the invite from Marks and Spencer and the first thing that came to mind was you came too late mate. I had already booked a ticket to go to Paris Fashion Week for a couple of days and one of the days was Tuesday (the day of the event). As regular customer of Marks and Spencer it would have been nice to be there but I had already made other commitments. However, after a few hours of deliberation, I decided I couldn’t afford to Continue reading Marks and Spencer takes tailoring to the next level | Cuts for Him→
