Breakup to makeup with your suit | Cuts for Him

If you are hard-core tailoring look kind of person as myself, there is one skill you must master. Breaking up full suits to form mix and match combos. This skill is particularly important if you do not have a plethora of suits at your disposal.

I don’t know about you but I think there is so much fun in deconstructing (as it were) a suit to form a new look with different elements from another suit. Come to think of it, there isn’t much fun in wearing a full suit beyond picking a suitable tie and Continue reading Breakup to makeup with your suit | Cuts for Him

The backpack that packs a punch | Cuts for Him

I can honestly say that I have never been this excited about a backpack before. You know how sometimes one does not know they need something until they get it? Yep, that was the feeling I got when I first received my Caxton Sport backpack from Eddie.

I have always been a duffel or messenger/briefcase bag user due to may style of dress. I thought using the above two types of bags was the true essence of the smart or smart-casual Continue reading The backpack that packs a punch | Cuts for Him

London Fashion Week SS18 Features | Cuts for Him

I have just walked into my flat not so long ago from an event a friend of mine hosted called Beam Talks and was browsing the next for Fashion Week inspirations when I stumbled upon a photo of me. More accurately, a photo of myself and a friend of mine during London Fashion Week Men’s SS18.

I chuckled the minute I saw the photo as it was a bit wired seeing yourself on other people’s publications and you have no idea how your photo  got there in the first place. It kind of brought back good memories of SS18 when myself and a few friends decided to check out the event.

Cuts for Him | My London, my style

So the team and I created this styling piece a few months ago. If i am honest, this video is one of my favourite for many reasons. However, I found myself holding back from sharing it with you some strange reason. I kind of felt like I needed to add something to the video not because it lacks something but to enhance what it is truly about.

The funny thing is that I couldn’t put put my finger on what I needed to add. It was only a few weeks ago that it donned on me that I should add a voiceover to the video. Yes thats it, a voiceover would enhance what I am trying to relay in the video. The only trouble now is that I have never done a voiceover before and this kind of petrified me. My fear was that it may not sound organic enough given that the video was created months ago and I am only now adding a voice to it.  With a bit of encouragement from people around, I thought to myself I don’t need to be a Morgan Freeman or even a Sir David Attenborough to do this lol. So here is my first take on voiceovers.

Right, back to the concept of this look. The idea for this look as you would have already guessed was Continue reading Cuts for Him | My London, my style
