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.

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.

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.

THE CLASSIC MAN

It’s been a long time coming but “The Classic Man” is finally here. I was waiting for more pictures but i’ll have to make do with these ones. This look is inspired by Jidenna, his classic man song and my granddad. I just had to do it. The most classic thing about this look to me is the walking stick. It belonged to my granddad who passed away a few years ago, may his soul rest in peace. So yeah if you are reading this the walking stick might be older than you.

It’s very rare to see anyone wearing suit with shorts these days but it was summer and I didn’t want to be bothered by pants. Shorts add the classic touch to it and all you need is confidence to pull it off.

Lol only colonial masters actually wore suits with shorts. I think it’s dope and it was summer so why not. Take a closer look at some of the accessories below. A nice Fedora hat, Shoes that stand out and I decided not to go with the cliche bow/long tie.

If you are going to dress classy in the summer try as much as possible to reduce the things that’ll make you sweat. Instead of a tie wear Collar Pins, Instead of a dress shirt with Long sleeves try one with short sleeves and instead of pants wear shorts. Got it? good!. One last picture before I bless you guys with purchase details.
