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

Marks and Spencer takes tailoring to the next level | Cuts for Him

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.

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

That was my cousin “shoutingly” reminding me of something I must have agreed to do. I rolled over to check the time on my phone. It was almost 11am. What was I thinking staying in bed this late I said underneath my breath? Continue reading Styling a tux, for Him and for Her: Cuts for Him

That cocktail party suit for spring

Hello hello hello! Right, I am not going to write a lot in this post as I want you focus on the suit. First of all, I have had a massive debate with at least 5 people regarding the colour of this suit. Suggestions such as Peacock, Teal, Aegean, Blue, Bluegreen and Sapphire have all been tabled and you know what, now am even confused as to what the actual colour is. This is my suit but I am confused about the colour! Crazy right? Well unlike one of the biggest debates last year about the Blue and Black (or white and gold) dress, this suit’s actual colour is not going to bother me one bit.
