THECOLE+KID JOURNAL | SUNDAY FRESH

Every guy has got that one outfit that takes less than second to settle on, kind of like your go to ensemble when you don’t have the pleasure of thinking one through. The denim or chambray shirt and soil chinos have been a main stay in my wardrobe for a good time now simply because it just works for me. All i simply need to do is change my feet candy according to my choice to dress up or down, DONE, and it no doubt has the highest versatility rate in my wardrobe. I decided to throw a suit jacket over it for happy Sunday and again, it works. I decided to revamp the only formal shoes I brought on my trip with a little combo that I picked up from playing with crayons as a kid. This is the first time I have sported a jacket without a pocket square and you might probably be asking why .Well its simply because I believe when a n outfit is too busy it tends to lose it appeal, kind of like a movie with too many stars in it , it usually doesn’t end well. I often see gentlemen with a brooch, a pocket square and a   tie clip all in one ensemble and it personally takes out the clean look of an outfit. The only thing that looks good over done is a chocolate, and you are obviously not one. HAPPY SUNDAY >> more PHOTOS Read More

FWST #SUNDAYFRESH | CARDI-GUN!

So today the Sunday weather got a little nifty so i pulled out of my favorite layering guns , the cardigan. With my physique I never find  a cardigan   that fits perfectly but this   DINAMIT JEANS  effort does the job quite fine . The cardigan is like the perfect  ‘’through the day’ piece  when its buttoned up it has an uncanny formal appeal, undo the buttons and it turns into a casual beast, perfect for that confused weather  forecast. Blue and grey happens to be one of my favorite color couples in the men’s wardrobe so I thought it wouldn’t  hurt to walk them down the aisle one more time .

FWST THE RETURN OF THE GENTLEMAN | BROWN BRICKS

Amongst the many tests that society has structured for  man to prove and claim his spot  , lies the  true test of a man to  command respect and appeal in a suit and tie . It is sad but you will seldom find gentleman who have enough guts to take this test in a brown suit. The brown suit , is  surprisingly the last Colour of suit most men add to their collection even though its versatility is matched by few. My love affair with the brown suit simply lies with its versatility, try throwing almost anything from a bright pink coloured shirt to my favourite white shirt at a brown suit and it works just fine. I know a lot of gentleman pride themselves in pulling of artwork co-ordinations but there is nothing like mastering the basics, you can’t run away from the James bond feel. Read More

FWST DAILY ROUTINE |the ELECTRIC slide

It is said that when you know your last bullet won’t cut the cloth of the competition do well to join them , I never thought I’d say this standing next to my shoe shelve . The other half recently got me a pair of grey driving shoes with electric blue laces from zara , and quite frankly the only time I pick it up is to put it back when I am line checking my shoes . When I come across items that I can’t seem to put into an ensemble it’s almost like unsolved math problem to an 8th grade math geek, it honestly messes with my sleep, judge me. When I got these driving shoes my problem was to put together an ensemble that wouldn’t come off as predictable. It has been a couple THE HOUR episodes since I jumped of the colour blocking wagon so that option was off the list , and I honestly couldn’t make music with anything in my wardrobe without looking predictable , so decided not to beat but join them. Since I couldn’t find anything to compliment these jewels I decided to stick to the colour that was causing problems .So  I created a blue palette with different shades of it.
