Cultured in Culture | London | Cuts for Him

CULTURE! The Oxford dictionary defined it as “The arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively” and the Cambridge dictionary puts it as “The way of life, especially the general customs and beliefs, of a particular group of people at a particular time”.  People identify themselves along cultural lines and strong bonds are formed through generations. Culture is as old as humanity itself but has been misunderstood or misrepresented.

It is usually said that a person will not know where they are going unless they know where they come from. This to my interpretation fits the bill for knowing your heritage culture. I also believe that every group of people practice some form of culture possibly passed down to them. From the food we eat to the clothes we wear, from art and architecture to the songs we listen to, from things relatively insignificant as a gift to more important things such as a language all contribute to defining our culture.

So it always baffles me when people try to define a person using one of the above or even worst, their skin colour. Come to think of it, skin colour is one of the most used criteria to pigeonhole Continue reading Cultured in Culture | London | Cuts for Him

The everyday weekend look | Cuts for Him

Ok so this post came a little bit later than planned. The idea was to share it last weekend but as they say, even the best plans do come undone from time to time lol.

This is meant to be a quick post about dressing down whilst staying stylish. As you may already know, suits are my thing. I would wear a suit in my sleep if it were practical lol. However, there is nothing worse than going to an event or a hangout and feeling overdressed. In my opinion, its even worst than being underdressed. Make you feel like a right idiot seeking attention. At least for weddings, formal dinners and other similar occasions, you know you have to dress to the nines. And of course, if you are only hanging out with your boys over a pint down the local bar then by all means roll up with your PJs. Actually, please don’t. You might look like you need help and at best, your mates might use it to laugh at you but you get the point I am trying to make.

So anyway as stated above, the point of this post is to create a simple  but effective look that transcends many Continue reading The everyday weekend look | Cuts for Him

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

The suit you wear to complement a woman’s dress | Cuts for Him

When it comes blogging, there are very few things that come close to giving me a buzz like working with other bloggers. I always get super excited at the prospect of working along side people with the same passion and interest as myself. I looking forward to the challenge of having to step up my game sartorially. I also look forward to learning a thing or two from others.

So when fashion and lifestyle blogger Barbara from Out of Barbara’s Box approached me to do a shoot, I was all over it like a cheap suit lol. Yes I truly was. As one of the leading Continue reading The suit you wear to complement a woman’s dress | Cuts for Him
