FALL LOOK BOOK 1

Welcome back guys. I’ve been so busy making money that my fashion blog has been suffering. I finally decided to make my blog a lifestyle based blog meaning I’ll be posting more than just fashion on here. So stay tuned. That being said let get into this look.

I have been looking for a black trench coat to replace my old one for a while and I finally found one. Had to put it on blast still.

This was the first time shooting with SHEPHERDS NEST PHOTOGRAPHY a company owned by my boy WESLEY ADI. I’ll put his information at the end of the post. The pictures came out great and I look forward to working with him more.

Putting this outfit together is very simple. There are many ways to rock a trench coat but when it’s cold a turtleneck is one of the better options. I’ll be able to shoot more fall looks if I can be more consistent. For now enjoy this one.

Pairing the look with a duffle bag makes something simple a little bit sophisticated. It balances the look, It’s the perfect prop for a trench coat look.

 

Originally I would buy pants and tailor them to fit but this time I was able to find perfect fitting pants from H&M. I couldn’t be any happier. I’m definitely going back there to top up. Below are a few more pictures before we conclude this post.

SHADES OF GREY

It’s finally spring so let me introduce you to the perfect spring look for the average gentleman. Behold my “Shades of Grey” spring 2018 look book.

There isn’t a lot of stories to tell about this time to be honest with you but this look right here is that look. It’s perfect for the classic men out there. You can also wear this to work. You can also rock this in the summer just leave the trench at home when you do. 

It does get cold here in Canada during spring so i’ll be dumb to go without a trench. So please if you’re in a cold country be sure to always have a trench coat or a jacket with you at all times just in case.

I like taking pictures in front of nice coloured cars because when I dress up I picture myself in one. I know some day i’ll have my own but for now we fake it till we make it. 

This suit comes with it’s own jacket but it was a terrible fit when I tried it on. The waist coat and pants on the other hand were looking great so i ditched the jacket. Like I always tell you guys, I have to tailor my pants to look the way they do so please don’t try this at home without consulting your family tailor. 

As for shoes, for some reason I don’t like low top dress shoes. This leather Chelsea shoe was a steal for me. It’s very comfortable so i’ll probably buy another one incase this one gets worn out. Don’t worry i’ll say where I got them at the end of this post.

Lol I was bending my neck in one of the shots below it almost broke but hey gotta do what these photographers tell you especially when they know their stuff. Tega definitely did his thing on this shoot. Pictures look crisp and edits are spot on. 

I’m actually just excited to be finally shooting with my boy Tega. He’s finally understanding how I like my blog pictures taken and at the same time he does his thing creatively. It’s Gods plan after all. Below are some more pictures from the shoot before I call it a day.

Middle finger to winter btw. It refused to go away. 

Did you notice the hat returned? It just looked nice for this look so I had to bring it back. Don’t know if it’ll stay tho. For those who actually take out time to read my posts I just want to say thank you. Please like this post, leave a comment, and share with friends. I appreciate you all.

VALENTINE

First of all it feels good to be back. I’ve never missed doing anything like I miss Fashion and blogging. I have so many reason why I have been absent but to be honest with you they’re just excuses. Inconsistency is nothing but an excuse. Just know that i’m back now so expect looks from time to time.

That being said Happy valentines day to you all and if you’re reading this after valentines day then I hope your valentines day went well.

This look is for those who need a little bit of inspiration on how to impress Bae this valentines day. I know it falls on a weekday and most of you plan on going on the weekend. This means you have time to get a few things before that hot date.

This look is really simple but hard for many to pull off. The trick lies in the Blazer. Get a nice blazer and the look is done. The rest of the look is generic and personally I don’t like to play with too much colours when it comes to classy looks. I like to just keep it simple. 

Black pants, Nice pair of Loafers, white dress Shirt and a black bow tie does it for me. The blazer on the other hand I take my time picking only the best I can get my hands on.

The picture above is the entire look. In this shoot Tega and I just focused on creating a valentines day vibe as opposed to outfit details but I hope what we have is good enough for you guys to get the gist.

This picture is definitely one of my favourite pictures of all time already. Such a great shot. This picture also shows the accessories in the look perfectly. When I wear black blazers I pair them up with coloured pocket squares usually red. This adds sugar and spice to it. I don’t play with colours but I hate plain outfits at the same time. I can’t imagine this suit without the red pocket square. Moral of the story go get you a red coloured pocket square.

Lmao I was really feeling myself with this rose. 

I barely smiled during this shoot but nothing beats my smiling pictures 

Below are a few more close-up pictures of the look. 

I used a rose for this look for obvious reasons. There are more pictures but for now this is all I have to upload in time before valentines day. Fellas, take your girls out on a nice date and look nice while doing so. Ladies love a well dressed man.

Happy valentines day again to you all and thanks for all the support. More to come so stay tuned.

YEAR OF THE GENTLEMAN FINALE!!!

This year has been full of ups and downs, and A lot of these things are beyond our control. Then again life itself is full of ups and downs but no matter what happens we have to keep moving, and like my father would say never stay stagnant always keep moving. So 2017 will be a year of movements for me.

With all that being said I want to welcome you guys to my “YEAR OF THE GENTLEMAN FINALE”

img_0357-copy

img_0324

First of all, the two pictures above are my two favourite pictures from the shoot so lets start with them.

img_0431-copy

There are only two people that have appeared on my blog more than once. Seyi Aka MrSeyi is one of them and Dami Aka SirDarkskin is the other. It’s always good vibes when these guys are around, so they will continue to make appearances on my blog as long as fashion is a thing. Thanks for always having my back guys.

Lets talk about the outfit before this post gets too long. This is a wedding/Special event inspired outfit. You can’t dress like this to work, it’ll be too flashy.

img_0351-copy

If you want to dress to impress for a major events, this is your go-to outfit. I like to add my gold accessories to make the outfit stand out, without them my suits will be plain and boring.

img_0342-copy

Speaking of weddings. Please I am accepting wedding invitations this year so I can come and turn up with my guys like this.

I want to also take this opportunity to thank “ENEM ODEH” for shooting most of the looks for my year of the gentleman series. She’s honestly one of the best and most patient photographers i’ve ever worked with. Thanks girl. I appreciate you.

YEAR OF THE GENTLEMAN: HOUSE OF TRXBE

This Blazer right here is one of the best Blazers I’ve owned in a long time. This is the blazer I said stopped traffic in my previous post. During the shoot for this look too many people asked me where I got it from. I’ll have to get more for anyone who wants.

img_1939

Or maybe the black and white picture is better for the intro.

img_2005

The pattern and design on this blazer is lovely. Look

img_1922

img_8388-copy

This is the type of look you rock to a wedding or a dinner party and as soon as you walk in I promise you people will stop whatever they’re doing to check you out.

Here is a closer look and a little bit of detail. My gold watch and bracelet are always my go to accessories.

img_8501-copy

You have to wear this blazer with anything black or white or it’ll be extremely hard to pull off. Below is a picture we took with a downtown Toronto view behind. The city really needs to hire and pay me for this. Haha Jk..

img_8482

img_8493-copy

It’s not just about the look but about the pictures taken during the shoot. Enem does a really great job.

img_8344-copy

img_8400-copy

For those who have also been asking, the blazer was delivered to me by a friend of mine. He owns a clothing company called “House Of TRXBE” in Nigeria. Their Instagram and other contact information will be in the CREDIT section once i’m done.

Here are more pictures.

YEAR OF THE GENTLEMAN: SEASON 4

OMG its been a while. I always seem to take a really long break before posting but this time I have real excuses. First of all there’s work, then events, then even more events, then you have catering and then you have sleep. Technically all these excuses shouldn’t stop me from blogging because it should only take a few minutes to put words together. So I think the real reason I took so long is because all my photographers abandoned me. So there it is, the cat is out of bag.

With all that being said nothing can really stop me from doing fashion. Well, except from Nigerian economy but even that can only last for so long.

img_7063

Let us talk “Year Of The Gentleman”. Have you ever had that work outfit that makes you feel like you can close any deal that comes your way? That suit that makes you feel like you’re on top of the world? I don’t feel like i’m there yet but i was pretty damn close with this outfit.

img_6797

In this outfit I was at the level of confidence where I could approach anyone on the street, I felt like I could even talk to Rihanna and she would listen. Okay maybe I’m pushing it but this is how I want you to feel everyday when you dress up for work.

I just kinda switched things up a little. I felt like this outfit would stand out more if the pieces came from two different suits and I was right.

img_6971-copy

This is the perfect outfit for work, an interview, a conference etc. It’s an everyday look for a perfect gentleman. In season 5 i’ll put together something that should stop traffic so stay tuned.

img_7016-copy

img_7013

Shooting this look was really nice. It was the first time working with “Enem” the photographer and she was amazing. My pants even ripped during the shoot. And yeah before I forget, the suit you wear for your everyday cooperate activity should be really comfortable but it doesn’t mean you should be Van dame or Jet Li while in them. So long story short, I thought I was Jackie Chan so my pants ripped.

img_6917-copy

img_6852-copy

img_6875-copy

Above are some of the best pictures from that day. I’ve always tried to mix my two most loved activities together and the pictures above are the best representations of who I am and the things I love to do.

Okay lets talk accessories for a second. As a gentleman, you need your tie perfectly held in place, You need a briefcase and you need a holster from LDWest (These guys seriously need to endorse me).

img_6786

img_7103-copy

img_6791

Okay we have reached the end of this catch up session, Now seat back and sip some tea and stay tuned until my next post.

YEAR OF THE GENTLEMAN: RENEYFRESH X MELISSA FALCONER

This is the first project of its kind that i’ve been involved in. I know most of you have seen and watched the video on Facebook or Youtube but not on Reneyfresh.com

Here I’ll post the pictures that came from the collaboration and also give you guys a breakdown of my outfit the most fashionable way possible.

The video and the painting are from Melissa Falconer’s point of view. This blog post is my point of view. For those who haven’t seen the video it’ll be at the end of this post.

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

The main point of this outfit was to show case my new LDWEST Holster. Way too many people have asked me where I got it from so I decided to tell them the best way possible.

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

The painting that came from this shoot was a visual representation of the collaboration between Melissa and I. In our part of the world Fashion meets Art and there was an explosion!!!!

The painting below is the result of the explosion and the video was just to showcase what happened behind the scenes.

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

IMG_0003

This Holster is my favourite accessory at the moment. I wear it to work mostly just because it takes my phone and wallet away from my pockets. Makes it hard for me to misplace them and also easy to reach. It serves different purposes to different people.

below are also some pictures from the shoot I haven’t posted anywhere.

YEAR OF THE GENTLEMAN: SEASON 2

Hello People!!!

I’ve been so excited to blog this look which was suppose to be season 3. But then season 2 is taking a while to get ready so I had to make this look season 2. I just had to do it.

Lets get to it. “Year Of The Gentleman: Season 2”. Probably my most anticipated shoot to date.

13090520_10153686000263247_1954438409_n

I had the opportunity to work with a whole new set of very talented individuals on this shoot. I had no idea what to expect but in the end everything turned out great. If you ask me even way better than I thought.

This time I just followed them around and they told me what to do, they found location etc. It was just great working with them. Their information and social media accounts will be posted under “credits” section at the end of the post.

13090313_10153686000293247_290500486_n

This has been my favourite pair of suit for a long time but I never blogged it. But there was no way it wouldn’t make an appearance on my “Year Of The Gentleman” series. It was almost automatic. As for details I tried to be as minimal as possible. I had to dig up my trademark pin from where it was buried. Pictures showing outfit details will be posted below.

No extra funny story to tell for this shoot but we did a lot of exploring for this. We had to park far away from shoot location, we even found a dope vintage store during the shoot. I didn’t care much though but Tega and Emilia did. I was just busy admiring myself in front of the mirrors. Oh, Tega and Emilia are the Creative director and Photographer respectively. We took the picture below at the vintage store. I just have a thing for mirrors.

YEAR OF THE GENTLEMAN: SEASON 1

This is the first post from my “Year Of The Gentleman” series. In this season, I featured one of my best dressed friends “Dotun Adeseun”. I’ve been so busy with everything else, like trying to find a job, planning events and starting a personal business, that’s why I haven’t posted anything in a while. But I have more projects coming up after this. The year is long and I am dedicating my time this year to show you guys the many ways to look classy, to look dapper, and to look like a gentleman. So stay with me and stay tuned. Now lets get started with season 1.

IMG_9544

The focus for this season is the “waist coat”. I like to wear waist coats when I want to go with a more casual look while Dotun for example, likes to go with the complete set.

IMG_0572-3

I know I already spoke about the poutine he’s eating in the picture above but i’ll talk about it again just because i’m still hurt. Dude ate the entire poutine alone, Stingy boy. Anyways, I opted for turtlenecks because they’re less cliche compared to dress shirt and tie plus i’m trying to save that for the next series.

IMG_0582-2

IMG_0581-2

Turtlenecks are more comfortable to be honest. The next look is probably going to be a complete suit. So be sure to come back

IMG_0527-3

IMG_0488-2

We had trench coats too because cold!!. Yh it was a bit cold the day of the shoot.

IMG_9506

IMG_0671

IMG_0700

It was fun to be back shooting with one of my favourite people with the camera, it’s been a while. We’ll probably link up again. This is just an introduction to my “Year Of The Gentleman” series so stay tuned to what I still have coming. A closer look at our outfits below.

IMG_0547-2

IMG_0361-2

IMG_0358-2

IMG_0356-2

IMG_0355-2

Some of the better shots from the shoot are below. I’m suppose to be the playful one oh. The dress pants that I have on are probably the best dress pants you’ll ever find. Its super comfortable, Its stretchy too, It came in the perfect length and size that I didn’t have to take it to my tailor. Finding pants this perfect is as hard as finding a good barber. If you know you know.

IMG_0690

The two pictures below are my favourites from the shoot. I’ll put the details of the outfits after the two pictures. Thank you guys for your patience, I’m back like I never left and like I said stay tuned!!!! ( And from now on if you’re reading my blog please put some “respeck” on it )….. hahaha

WINTER 200

Welcome back to Reneyfresh.com your number 1 fashion destination. I know y’all missed me. This is my first blog post of 2016, yeah I know it’s been a while but I have so much going on. I called this post “WINTER 200” first of all because my blog is in it’s second year, and since I did WINTER 101,102 AND 103 last year it’s only right to continue the trend. Secondly I hope to take you through a full undergrad tutorial on how to pair things up in a sub-zero cold environment. So lets get to it.

IMG_8158-Edit

IMG_8134

This is what the outfit looks like. Winter is all about layers. Once you know how to pair things up and layer them properly winter will not be so much of a problem to you. Winter doesn’t really respect swag, so if you want to stay warm you better throw your swag away and cover up.

One thing though, I know I shouldn’t have worn the ripped jeans for this shoot because my legs were freezing. So don’t try this at home. Wear something that’s covered 100%.

IMG_8177-Edit

IMG_8178-Edit

IMG_8179-Edit-Edit

Also dress comfortable enough to be able to run and jump. For me, I don’t think anything looks good if you’re not comfortable in it.

IMG_8172

Details matter a lot. Forget those pants, i’m never ever wearing them in the cold again unless i’m driving or being driven.

IMG_8183-Edit

This is the hat I have on for this shoot. Everyone’s in love with this hat. They always assume it’s expensive but it’s just the opposite. It’s all about packaging.

IMG_8202-Edit

IMG_8116-Edit

I love my winter jacket so much. If you live in a cold country, the best thing you can do for yourself is to invest in a proper winter jacket. You will not regret it. I’ll put all the outfit details at the end of the post.
