Wedding Do’s

Renting a suit for your Wedding is like trying to impress the chicks in your sweat pants.
It can be done, but not advised.
Step out from the mundane suit rental merry-go-round, and get yourself fitted for a hand tailored suit in the finest fabrics, delivered to your door.
Why should the Bride have all the fun?
If she is going to spend her life savings on a dress that she will only ever wear for a day, then its only fair that you get to spend some of your hard earned coin on a suit you will have for your life.
James Bond (Sean Connery not the other fluff balls), or George Clooney, the choices are endless, but a great hand crafted suit will make you feel like a star on the most important day of your life.

Do yourselves a favour, check out Sixborn, and run with the wolves!


Enter the mother ship.

Whatever you thought about fashion and fashion retailing, then you need to take another perspective.

I had heard about this store for many years, in magazines and in blogs. I had heard about how it was the Holy Grail of retailing, and how it helped to challenge the notion of the way a small independent boutique could operate.

I had seen the pics, and thought that I had it under control, that I had it’s measure. A little like a prize fighter studying up his opponent…intimidated but ultimately confidently cocky.

Well I was wrong.

Colette, that uber store of all things chic, in the middle of Paris taught me that my cockiness was misplaced… It taught me that sometimes the hype is worth the paper that it’s written on.

However this fashion dream came into being and whomever is responsible, the fashion community is richer for it’s existence.

Its part installation, part warehouse, part hangout spot, but totally amazing. Even the packaging is displayed in such away that for a split second I was fooled into thinking that it was this seasons must have!!! Such is the skill to sell the fantasy

People were spilling onto the streets, tourists walking by wondering what kind of happening was happening, and cranking beats filled the air.

“No cameras in the store Sir”, I was asked as if taking photos would kill the soul of the shop, so I was reduced to taking it all in the regular way, sights and sounds and smells.

The store is on 3 levels and a couple of mezzanines. Ground floor is the street filter section of tshirts, sneakers, eyewear and accessories, plus some chic giftware. Each piece carefully selected to reflect the street culture of today, and each section is guarded by a couple of workers..they are protective here so don’t mess about..

Up a flight of stairs you find the serious mens and womens collections, which are punctuated by lots of mannequins also wearing some of the collections. This section is for the serious shopper and probably the reason why most people come to the shop. The collections include Yves Saint Laurant, Thom Browne, Comme des Garçon, Dior and the lesser known labels such as Opening Ceremony, Band of Outsiders and Ice Cream.

Delicate fabrics and sequins stand alongside hoodies and skate shoes. Each asking for the same amount of admiration from the customer. It is this concept that makes this experience so exciting and energizing, valuing design for it’s merit and not by it’s monetary value.

If your keen there is a level for art installations and a beauty bar a couple of steps down. And if the experience of emptying your wallets has left you needing a lift then the basement is where the cafe is at.
They have left no stone unturned. It is a total lifestyle experience.

If you are in the area, or making a trip to Paris, I would make this fashion destination one to mark in your schedule. It is well worth a visit.

Baby Its Cold Outside

When the days get shorter and the wind howls around at your ankles, its time to dust off the winter jackets and scarves, and leap into a new season.

I find it difficult to leave the sunshine and warmth behind, but i will tell you one thing that makes the transition a little easier, that is, shopping! Im talking about the kind of shopping that helps to boost your wardrobe, and add to the clothes you purchased last season. Nothing helps you face a dreary day more easily than some new items of clothing. A simple scarf, or a new pair of shoes, can really make a difference.

Check out the new shapes or colours in the stores at the moment, and try no to be swayed by the ever youthful shop assistants who will tell you that stuff you dont like or dont want is this season’s “must have”. Check out the magazines at the begining of the new season and whatever attracts the eye as desirable is the kind of stuff you should look out for at the shops. But dont be fooled, because the stuff in magazines is styled to within one inch of its life and can look very different in the flesh. You will need to go in and check out the new styles and colours and get into the changerooms to try stuff on. The more you try, the closer you will get to knowing what looks good and what you prefer to see yourself in.

I have said it before, but knowing how best to adorn our bodies is not a blessing bestowed on us at birth. It is like a muscle that needs constant training to glisten in the light. The more you exercise it, the more it will return to you. Dont be detracted by all these well dressed buffoons in the street, you too can look just as well dressed if you took a little time every now and again and go shop.

Shopping at the stores is also very helpful, because if you ever need to purchase clothing online, knowing the cuts and colours reduces the wasteful situation of ordering something that you never had any business in wearing! Allow your mistakes to help you make better decisions in the future. There is nothing worse than having to live those fashion disasters over and over through photos.

So as the new season whispers your name on the cold winds, get out there and find your style. Once the depths of the short days come into play the only person who will be smiling and looking sharp will be you!

Sometimes the clothes, do not make the man


Clothes don’t make the man, but they can sure make him look more appealing


There are lots of rules and a lot of chat about what you should and shouldn’t wear, (and most of them should be heeded), but I find that a true sense of style comes from a lot of self confidence.

I’m talking about the sense of self that comes from inside, and permeates through your skin.

Gucci, Prada, Fendi or Sixborn,to name a few, aint worth a pinch unless you feel good about yourself before you put them on your body. See, it’s not what you wear, but how you wear it.

There are lots of label clad cowboys out there who make expensive clothes look like cheap knock-off’s. The thing is that these cowboys think that the labels they wear are making into a better person or a more desirable person.

Sorry boys, thats like thinking you can attract a soulmate by flashing your credit card!!

It just doesn’t work like that! Style comes from appreciation of self, and how best to adorn that self. It’s about mixing and matching designs and cuts until you find the things that make you feel like you’re representing who you really are.

It’s not about spending big to be more flashy, it’s more about spending smart and appreciating the craftmanship or design value in the clothes.

What you present on the outside, is really a reflection of what is going on inside


So the next time your about to go out on the town, look in the mirror and appreciate the person standing in front of you, and then feel what u would like to wear.

It will make a world of difference to the way you and others see you.

Before he speak his suit bespoke

Perfect Fit

Dressed smart like a London bloke. Before he speak his suit bespoke.’
Kanye West, American Boy.

The infinite wisdom of Kanye West does not end at who should have won the ‘Best Video’ category at the VMA’s.

He knows that slick suits – perfectly tailored to your frame – are rapidly becoming a male necessity.

Don’t believe Kanye? Then cop this. A highly scientific study conducted by my judgemental friends and I confirms: men are more attractive, more confident and stand taller in well-tailored suits.

So, how do you know what to look for when taking the plunge into custom made threads?

I’ve got three words for you: Cut. Is. King.

Transformers are so retro-cool-right-now, but your suit jacket shouldn’t make you look like one. Cross your arms over your chest (go on, give yourself a man hug) when trying your jacket. If you have just enough room to move comfortably, you’ve found a winner.

Here’s three more words to remember: baggy is bad. MC Hammer rocked the look in the 80’s but he that was just an embarrassing blip on the pop-culture radar. Besides, he’s broke now. But be careful – go too far the other way and you could be having your own David Bowie moment. And it’s not great for the manhood, man. Your trousers should fit comfortably in the waist and thighs. They should give you flattering but not revealing ‘shop frontage’. And, when it comes to length, remember what Jane Austen would say: ankles are unsightly.

If you love the pants get a second pair made. You won’t regret it.

Choose the best fabric you can afford. The higher the grade of fabric, the longer it will last and the better it will feel. Simple as that. Not sure what you like? Just give the fabrics a ‘rub test.’ Feels good? It probably is.

Choose an unconventional lining colour to make the suit your own. Grey with purple. Navy with orange. It will make you feel dangerous when people get a tantalising peek of your ‘inner lining demon’, you dirty dawg.

The shirt you choose is just as important as the suit. Nothing bought in plastic wrapping and stacked on shelf of sale items should touch your skin. Apply the same rules of fabric and cut to a shirt as you would a suit. But be playful. Choose a fabric that expresses your individual style. A well fitted shirt can shred kilos from your frame, define a waist and sharpen your shoulders. If you’re not sure what looks best – ask your experienced tailor.

So you’ve nailed the suit, shirt and tie. You’re feeling good about yourself, aren’t you? Walking taller? Strutting even? Well stop right there. Because nothing spoils a look like a peek of white sports socks or scuffed shoes. It’s all in the detail, darlings. Invest in a smart pair of dark socks, and give your shoes a spit and polish before click clacking your way down ol’ business town.

And finally, when it comes to neck ties, there is only one golden ‘do not wear under any circumstances’ rule. Novelty ties, I’m looking at you.

Custom made suits are timeless and are a forever reliable way of making a man look a million bucks. Go on, make Kanye proud.
