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

Rolling with coat season | Cuts for Him + Maketh the Man

Ok I know every one of you know that coats are an essential part of a man’s wardrobe during the winter season. When it comes to layering, it does not get better than a good ol coat. I mean it’s not rocket science to see the need to invest in one or in my case, seven overcoats. You just need to step outside on a typical winter’s day to find out why they are Apart from the practical purpose of keeping you warm coats also play an important role where style is concerned. One thing I always say is that if you going to wear one, you might as well style it out and make it work for you sartorially.

There are three main ways to rock a coat. The first is to simply hang it over your shoulder and carry it with style. Carrying your coat over your shoulder is stylish but does not do much in terms of its Continue reading Rolling with coat season | Cuts for Him + Maketh the Man

Shopping experience for gents at the Royal exchange | Cuts for Him

John Smedley’s form and structure on Knitwear | Cuts for Him

On Friday last week, I had the privilege of attending the launch of bespoke sculptures by John Smedley’s artist in residence Guy Haddon Grant. This was a collaborative work celebrating their partnered passion for form and construction.

These sculptures were inspired by the machine beds, and movement of both needles and yarn at John Smedley’s factory in Derbyshire. As can be seen on one of the images below, the sculpture has both industrial and delicate characteristics providing a perfect synergy  between the machines and the gentle knitwear produced.

Speaking of knitwear, there has always been one brand that comes to mind every times someone mention the term “knitwear” and that is John Smedely. If you are a lover of good quality knitwear you would have recognised John Smedley as the undisputed leader in this humble yet prestigious garment. Whether it is the roll neck or the polo knitwear, there is no denying the fact that the knitwear exudes elegance and style.

The iconic polo knitwear

One thing I really like about the brand is its unassuming nature. If you notice, the garments do not have visible logos on them. Now that takes a lot of character and assurance Continue reading John Smedley’s form and structure on Knitwear | Cuts for Him
