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.

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

Anyone that know me in person knows that I absolutely love Paul Smith shoes. I mean Paul Smith is one of my favourite British designers so I guess it makes sense that I love his shoes. However, I did not realise I had this many shoes from Mr Smith until I added these beautiful derby into the collection. The last three receipts of shoes have all come from the same store, can you imagine?

Slip-ons, tasselled loafers, boots, lace-ups, you name it I have them all. In my humble opinion, Continue reading My love for all shoes Paul Smith

Khaki suit: A wise choice

A Khaki suit is one of the best investments a man can ever make for the summer season. I know we are almost at the end of the summer now but bear with me as this might be handy for next season. Who knows, you might even get a good bargain on a similar suit in the sale to stock up for next summer.

My Khaki suit turned out to be an unexpected hit for this summer as I try to look smart but relaxed at the same time. The truth is I only bought myself one by chance as i walked into a Paul Smith discount store in July looking for a pair of shoes. I came Continue reading Khaki suit: A wise choice

The ultimate summer suit

For those in England, the weather has been kind to us in the past few days. Some might even add that it has been too kind as garments and layers are falling off due to the “excessive” heat. I try not to complain as I know I’d rather this hot weather any day to a rainy or snowy one. Truth be told, its easier to keep warm than to cool down but like I said, give me a hot day over a cold one any time. As Brits, our conversations are never a few sentences away from talking about the weather. Its like we just love to talk about the weather. It is a conversation starter and I can see why most people would use it as an ice breaker. Everyone can relate to the conditions of the weather.  Anyway enough about the weather already.

The reason for this post is to show you my ultimate summer, or should I say hot weather suit. Summers in England are no guarantee for hot weather as you may know. So really and truly, I should change the title of the post from “summer suit” to “hot weather suit” right? Nah I think I will leave it as it is. Continue reading The ultimate summer suit
