“To be positive is to live and behave positively. I always say life begins when you stop living for yourself completely, when you’re able to see others before yourself…” – Cornet M

If that doesn’t say Cutty Cares, then I don’t know what does! Beloved brand ambassador, Cornet Thabiso Mamabolo, is the embodiment of all that is ‘paying it forward’, and at Cutty, we are always on board when it comes to caring. The Cornet M Foundation, is making great strides in uplifting communities by assisting young learners, thereby keeping them in school. “The reason I started this foundation was because I wanted to give back to society. I realize that many of my peers back home are left behind. Most of them are high school dropouts,” says style icon and Cutty ambassador Cornet. Like Cornet M, here at Cutty we look to the whole man, and style is but one of many expressions of the inner man.

Finding your own style in a world full of fashion trends can be daunting. The important thing to remember is that whichever style you settle into, the end goal is to look good AND feel comfortable in your new gear. No point in being a square peg trying to fit into a round hole. Cutty cares not only about style but more importantly about personal fulfilment and ultimate satisfaction. If you feel good, odds are you’re going to look good and vice versa. Let’s make this a year of ‘style introspection’ with Cutty. Whether you’re feeling particularly playful and relaxed, business like and serious, or ready to party and impress, Cutty has the outfit to reflect your mood.

This winter sees Cornet M showing off his playful self to the camera. Splashed in bright reds, blues and yellows the Skeem Saam icon is bringing home the message that youth is an elixir that brings with it not only an exuberance for life but a mature attitude of empathy and social responsibility.
