Brands I Love – The Shoe Makers & Co.

Being a menswear enthusiast, I am always on the look out for brands which make trendy, out of the box products. And unfortunately, there aren’t many in Pakistan at the moment. Men are shy to experiment and accordingly brands provide them with safe but boring options so it excites me immensely whenever I come across brands that defy above stated notion but instead make products that are stylish, unconventional and have a character of their own.
The Shoe Makers & Company, commonly known as TSM & Co., is one one such brands. In a market swamped with same old boring shoes with square toes and ugly fake LV logos all over them. TSM is a breath of fresh air. What really stood out for me were how on trend there shoes are with the international market, TSM makes the kind of shoes that you see on international runways and spot menswear style icons wearing them. If my point of view sounds like an endless eulogy then have a look at their designs and see for yourself.

Today I am Wearing – Ombre’ Effect Polo by Yellow

I have been contemplating over featuring my personal looks on the blog for a while. On one hand, it felt a bit too self-involved while on the other hand the thought of putting myself out there always scared me a bit.

But my love for menswear fashion and style in infinite and when you are into something so deeply, it’s just the natural step to go all in. So here’ my first ‘Today I am Wearing’ post. There are a lot more to follow hopefully.

The look is very simple and casual. Something I wear quite often when ever I am going out for a movie or to a dinner with friends. Hope you like it.

8 Best buys under 1000

*Before anyone goes all ballistic on my ass and call me a copycat, let me state it very carefully, this post is inspired by GQ’s Best under $50 feature.*

I am a huge fan of American GQ, it is one of best things to ever happen to men’s fashion. I follow it religiously and GQ’s regular feature that lists down best products to buy that cost $50 or less is one of my favourites. They do the same post for products under $100 as well.

Anyways, I felt like doing a similar piece for Pakistani market so here’s a compilation of some of the best buys under Rs. 1000 or less. From iPad cases to men’s bracelets and t-shirts to ties, this post has it all. Have a look:

Lust List – Tie Edition

All Tied Up Tangy Cocoa Geometric Diamonds Formal Tie -Rs.2000

I am a 9 to 5 (8-4 to be exact) corporate slave. I have to put on a tie 4 days of the week whether I like it or not. But unlike most of my colleagues, I enjoy putting on a tie.

There are very few menswear staples that provide you with an opportunity to have some fun. You can experiment with colour, play with prints and go down the unconventional route. Neck tie is one of them.

I am obsessed with collecting ties and most of my ties were procured from Daraz.pk.  Sourcing through Daraz.pk’s website for a good find is my weekly ritual so I thought of putting together a list of my favourite ties from daraz.pk current tie collection.
