Kenneth is an A-class example when it comes to dressing like your personality. He’s a working man by day and a poet by night. You’ll find him in small jazz clubs or sitting in a bar with a bottle of beer in one hand and a pen in his other – writing poetry. His style is raw and dark, but with a twist of optimism as shown in his choice of accessories. Kenneth Romulo is a dapper man, and that’s a fact.
