TSM & Co.

I usually do not do brand promotions for a brand unless I have worn, used and truly experienced their product thoroughly. Bloggers these days get free products and somehow write reviews that are as far from the truth as the moon is from Pluto! And on many levels that is not only misguiding to the people who read the reviews but is also unethical on a lot of levels. Having said that, I will try to only promote brands that I truly believe in for their product!

TSM & Co. which is an acronym for ‘The Shoe Makers and Company‘ is a brand which operates from Karachi. They specialise in Menswear shoes and they write on their website that ‘No shoes existed that could provide the style sought after by men looking to make a statement…’ which is a very true statement coming from Pakistan! Men in Pakistan, like I have mentioned in a lot of my previous posts, do not have a lot of brands to choose from. For people who truly like the art of styling, they would have to go to great lengths in order to find statement pieces for themselves. Even though TSM & Co. offers a multifarious range of footwear, the brand also offers a few statement pieces for the likes of Fashion aficionados

The Amsterdam Derbies by TSM & Co. (Click on the image above to be guided to their website)

 

 

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of Amsterdam Long-wing Derbies with a rubber sole. I quite like the trend that fuses a classic shoe with contemporary design. It led to the innovative creation of a modern hybrid shoe and has been featured on Runways, Fashion Weeks and Pitti Uomos (for the men who follow the news).

Since the brand offers a delivery service to your doorstep, the shoes arrived in a very well designed package. It was rather fancy and the shoes were packed in nice silk dust bags. Now talking about the design of the shoe itself, it comes in a single shade which is Dark Grey. The wing tip extends from the front to the back of the shoe and the rubber sole not only adds a unique look but also serves the purpose of making the shoe extremely lightweight. The insoles have been padded to support the contours of the foot which makes the shoe itself ‘EXTREMELY’ comfortable. And having worn these shoes consecutively for a few days let me just tell you, ‘you have my word for it’.

In order to purchase these shoes or if you are looking for shoes, do check out TSM & Co. You can visit them here. They currently offer free home delivery, cash on delivery services and a 14 day return service if you are not convinced! Could not get any simpler than that.

KARMUEL YOUNG – Innovative Fashion for Men

Fashion has always been a very “Women” centric term. Not to sound misogynistic but it is true. The Fashion Industry relies more on female consumers. There is a relatively smaller percentage of men who take Fashion seriously. And even for the ones who do, there is not much they can play around with to look Fashionable. Whereas women have elaborate dresses, evening gowns, they get to play around with accessories and shoes and bags, Men really do not have a lot to play with when it comes to putting together a Fashionable Look for themselves. Some men do have this individual style which is why they can wear whatever they want and look extremely stylish but usually men struggle with the art of Fashion!

Scrolling through Instagram we came across this wonderful new brand by the name of Karmuel Young. So this brand came out with this wonderful new accessory that will widen the list of accessories that men get to play around with when defining their style! The idea is simple but extremely brilliant!

SHOE CUFF


The best thing about this accessory is that it adds a certain oomph to classic footwear. It adds style and individualism. They are detachable and can be put on any shoe from brogues to sneakers. These show cuffs come in different textures as well – from leather to fur.

Tradition meets Fashion

There is something insanely stylish and intriguing about fashion when it is combined with traditional elements. It is not only a way for people to stand out but its an expression of an homage to ones own roots. Recently the Italian Fashion house Dolce and Gabbana, has started shifting its focus to Sicilian Traditions. Considering that Domenico Dolce, one half of the designer duo, traces his roots back to Sicily. The campaigns started focusing on Family values with models being chosen from every generation to give the viewer a family oriented image of the brad. Their entire collections gradually started showcasing reds and vibrant color palettes, polka dots, frills, Matadors and extensive use of embroidery.

The result: Awe inspiring and extremely stylish.
