Finally life is calming down a little. This summer has been busier than most, with 3 trips to England, one to India and getting married. Those that follow me on Instagram have been joyfully able to track my movements and experiences every step of the way. For those of you that prefer to wait for my infrequent pictorial updates, here are my favourites (including my first video!). I’ll get back to the weekly updates shortly.
In preparation for another trip to Delhi in two weeks I have been looking over my appropriate khaki linen. Should I invest in a pith helmet and a portable tonic water cooler, or would that be taking it too far? In any case, it looks to be mostly raining there now… #india #linen #khaki #barbour #nigelcabourn #newdelhi #dadstyle #offduty
I was going to post another sock photo, to inform you that I had posted part two of my epic sock investigation on WellDressedDad.com. However, I thought I'd combine it with a small lesson in how to pose like a proper model for photos. I noticed this poster in a Topshop and couldn't but appreciate that the girl on the photo makes no effort at all to look anything but sullen and bored, so henceforth I will only look morose and pissed off on my photos! No more awkward smiles! Taking lessons from the pros! Yay! Quite a relief for all involved, eh? #socks #sockfetish #blogger #fblogger #fashion #menswear #supermodel #caradelevingne #pose #instaman #instafashion #dadstyle
Today's styling masterclass is all about corduroy jackets. Whether you want to go for the sharp and sleek yet smoothly seasonal look or the scowly and single supply-teacher style, there is a corduroy jacket to suit you. In this lesson the jackets are styled in the term fashion professionals call "closed". Notice how I have kept the bottom undone, according to traditional rules. If it's cold outside and your tummy is chilly I suggest throwing caution to the wind and fastening all the buttons. Be reckless. #fashionlessons #prostyling #freetips #corduroy #nigelcabourn #paulsmith #dadstyle #thattree #menswear
