Style is the answer to everything, a fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing. To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it, to do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art. Loving can be an art, Opening a can of sardines can be an art.
Nowadays I seem to find myself with my best foot forward every time i have ‘’smart casual’’ moment . I saw a character sport a polo shirt and tie in BBC’s popular series THE Hustle and since then I have always been looking for a chance to pull that look off. I don’t know where this style originates from but I strangely find it quintessentially British. Some might say it’s against tradition to sport a polo with a tie but i honestly find it conventionally chic, and I love anything that bridges casual and formal wear, its a genius lane that a few have mastered. I decided to play this look with my favourite grass Green charlatan polo, and opted for dark solid colours to add that matured tone .Polo shirts don’t have the save collar size as shirts so I got a tie that has a light structure and could make knot small enough to sit comfortably between the collar points , and this lightweight vertigo knitted tie does the trick quite nicely. I am also glad to inform you that the vintage leather shop will be opening soon so keep your eyes peeled , and yes gems like that crocodile leather briefcase pictured above with its owner (me) will be available for sale . Have a nice weekend yall!

If there is a ever moment where I get to be frozen through time I want to be caught in a denim shirt and a pair of chinos with a clean handkerchief and something to carry every memory that I ever wrote down. Life is not short, it’s just enough to start, make a mistake, learn, love and repeat your favorite things to till the end. I am making it a point never to leave out my favorite things in life which strict schedule as to when they come into play and that includes some amazing humans, the fried yam with pork chops from Lagos Avenue, galaxy cookie crunch and my denim shirt. ‘’I hear my people question,’’what is the world coming to ?’’, but the truth is, this is what the world is and what the world’s been _@teffTHEdon Shirt: Kenneth cole denim shirt , pants: topman ,knitted by vertigo, D.I.Y brooch ,shoes by kurt Geiger, vintage document wallet from trainwreckvintagestore.com.
