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.

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

Styling a tux, for Him and for Her: Cuts for Him

I had a late night last night doing some photo editing till 4am and was woken up this morning by a knock on my bedroom door. A voice shouted out, don’t forget to buy the drinks for tomorrow. 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

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.

That business look

Choosing the right suit and using accessories around it shouldn’t be a rocket science when you know the basic rules of looking dapper. A business suit is by far the most important and most utilised suit for movers and shakers in the city. You only have to pop round to the squire mile or canary wharf in London during peak hours too see a sea of men donning business suits. Financial advisors, bankers, IT consultants and marketing executives all wearing business suits to look the part.

For any stylish individual, colour, fabric, and fit are just a few things to be taken into consideration when investing in a business suit. From the boardroom to a shared office space, you want to leave a great impression on the minds of those around you. Whilst most of what happens in these environments may be out of your control, how you look in that suit shouldn’t be one of them. In fact if there is one thing that should be totally in your control, it is your look. Continue reading That business look
