If by any chance you missed the pocket square post on the “Mind the details” series, i recommend you catch up with it here.

Socks are by far one of the most underrated pieces of items which are not given much attention for many reasons. To appreciate the value of socks compared to the rest of your look, one much first of all understand the use of this accessory. Are you wearing socks for protection, for athletics, comfort or for style? Once you decide the main purpose of use then other things will start to fall into place. As you would have guessed, my focus is on style and how dress socks can be used to greatly enhance an overall look.

You might be thinking whats the point of paying attention to a piece of item that is barely seen. Well first of all, if your socks is never seen when you wear a dress trouser then you might be doing something wrong and the chances are your trouser length is longer than it should be. Granted when standing straight one might not always see your socks but I guarantee this will change the minute you put one foot in front of another and start walking or when you make good use of your bottom by sitting down.

The most versatile suit ever made

Grey seem to be the colour of choice for the coming season if trends spotted on catwalk shows are anything to go by. “Not too unusual for the cold weather collections you might think, but this season it’s the way it was styled from tailored to tracksuit bottoms that boosted it into trend territory: with as many other shades of grey as possible” said GQ.

Sunday best – 2

If you remember correctly I wrote a blog post last month about my Sunday routine as far as dress style is concerned, and named it Sunday best. If you haven’t read it yet, I suggest you go back to it (here) and acquaint yourself with the history behind the routine. This blog post is a continuation of that post which is the second of a three part series on Sunday best.

It truly sets me up spiritually and mentally as it serves as a springboard from which the rest of the week flows. Continue reading Sunday best – 2

That casual Friday look

Friday is one day in the week which seems to bring a sigh of relief to many especially those who work Mondays to Fridays. Its means the weekend is finally here and we can afford to do the things we enjoy doing (with people we love) and when we want to do them. We can even put our feet up and do nothing at all if we so choose. Amazing isn’t it?

Friday is that one day we can actually walk into the office with a pair of chinos without raising eyebrows. But wait, there is a name for it and it’s “Casual Fridays”.

In the spirit of casual Friday, let me share a few looks on men I came across in London over the past three weeks or so. These looks fit perfectly into the work environment depending on what you do.

– The first look is by Sez, a look I’ve being channelling all summer. Blazer over shorts!
