BRITISH INTELLIGENCE

Allen coleman stylistBefore this unconstructed peak lapel seer sucker jacket I always thought of British tailoring as unbearably boring and in dire need of character, thanks to mr Hackett I might just have to do a 180 in shame. Soft shoulders, peak lapels with functioning cuffs right off the rack might just make a this brand a main stay in my wardrobe. With a fit like this right off the rack  it’s easy to understand why it’s one of Britain’s favorite menswear brands. I don’t think I have gathered enough guts to wear a full piece seer sucker suit just yet, for now I think I’ll stick to pairing them with separates and keep the ketchup off my fish and chips.

THE PERFECT DENIM, #SIMON MILLER

464403_mrp_cu_xl For years I have bought countless pairs of denim in search of the perfect denim with no success.I don’t understand why nobody ever says finding the right pair is such a hustle. It’s just about how they fit, if you are a denim person you know what I mean. How soft or rigid the cotton is, how distressed, how it was dyed, the quality, and I won’t even dive into the “lived in” feel that can’t be casually ignored if you love your denim. Till date I have never seen a natural lived in feel on denim that these light wash denim pants from simon miller. These denim pants are beautifully, if the price tag wasn’t that steep I would have picked up three pairs, just enough to keep rocking them into the ground( please don’t bury me in these) . I can’t vouch for the fit of these pants but as far as the wash and fade go, this baby here has half the job done. With fabric sourced from Italy and manufacturing done in Los Angeles , these pants have the best of both worlds, elegant structure and a rugged finish.

EYEs #5, I SEE YOU.

IMG_0330 It’s been a few weeks since I started the EYEs project and I humbled to say my work has never felt this meaningful. I love street photography and for years I have been trying to put my finger on something quite as moving as this. I love the interactions with my subjects, it stays with me all through to the end.

MORNING BLUES

IMG_0597 Picking out a suit, shirt and a tie is like figuring out sitting positions for a wedding; you don’t put uncle chatter box with auntie chatterbox, that’s just a recipe for destruction. The trick is to find the right mix of contrast, and trust me it doesn’t come easy, there are no coded steps to achieving the ability of keeping it simple without a sweat but a few pointers definitely make it a tad bit smoother . Personally, I copied looks off the internet till I found my own stride, mistakes led to discoveries and then, soon after, my mentors were giving me the thumbs up (that is what 30 likes on style forum mean).
