I kid you not when I say that London Fashion Week Men’s was not on the list of events I wanted to attend this summer. Having hosted Cuts for Him’s first Fashion Industry Insiders Event a couple of weeks before, I was on the road to recuperating and getting some much needed rest. As you can imagine, Hosting a event which caters for about 200 people was hard work to say the least. So I was perfectly ok with me missing LFWM SS18 and any other event happening around that time.
That was the plan until I spoke to a couple of friends from the blogging world who really and truly got me back into the swing of all things LFWM. All they had to do was mention the Mr Porter Summer Social and I was in. I mean completely in. The truth is that because I had barred myself from all events relating to LFWM, I had completely forgotten about one of my favourite events in the summer calendar, Mr Porter.
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→
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→
When i place my name on the waiting list for a chance to get a ticket for Canon’s InstaMeet I honestly did not think I was going to get one. Canon InstaMeet events are highly sought as they are as exclusive as they come.
When I got an email a few days later confirming my place at their latest gig, i was over the moon. I literally had to cancel plans I had that evening to make sure I was there.
As expected, the event was a massive success. We were first of all treated to some drinks and snacks which i must say I was not able to take full advantage of as I had just had a heavy late lunch before I got to Somerset house where the event was held.
For the secret gig, three bands were lined up with the first to perform being Liskka, the second The Bloom, and lastly Bent Ref.
At the end of concert we were ushered in to view the amazing exhibition celebrating the life of Stanley Kubrick.
Here are a few of the photos I took. I hope you like them. Tell me what you think in the comment section below.
A massive thank you to Canon UK for organising such a great event.
