Saturday! Sweet day of relaxation, sun and fun. I spent my Saturday (after shopping, obviously) catching up with old friends, at a new spot in town.

Outfit of the Day: Black & Gold

I wore them last, when I was at Lexus South African Menswear Week 2017 and I decided I’d be remiss not to rock them again.

Lexus South African Menswear Week: The blasé nod to 2017 style

While theatricality plays its part during fashion week, it is functionality and fresh design that provide the bottom line after the shows end, most of the time.
