Stylish Winters: Formal Black Outfit for Men

February begins with a warm approach to harsh winters. The weather slowly moves to a cozier onset with temperatures fit for a stylish wardrobe change! This February, we want to tell you how to leave the cozy, chunky knits for cold windy weather behind and welcome warm stylish Blazers! 🙂

When we realized that the month of love was truly also the month of weddings, and how a few members wrote to us for help, we put our thinking caps on to figure out the just right mix of spice and style great for your needs and ofcourse, the wallet.

The Curious Case of “I have everything BLACK”

Do you own a pair of black trousers? And, a black Blazer or a coat?  If yes, then we need you to know that you’re already half way through! :- ) To make it better, we recommend-

  1. Checking the blazer and getting it fitted on shoulders, chest and other areas! Take it to a good tailor and get it custom-fitted.
  2. Check the trousers. Can you make it slimmer at the ends? Is it too tight, too loose or has iron-stains? TIP- If yes, then don’t bother to get it fitted. You need a new one! Choose the darkest black which looks richer than its predecessor.
  3. Keep the Blazer and Pants together and exact-match their colors. Thumbs-up, if they do. If they don’t, you need to replace either of them! (Write to us if you need help in choosing the right Black Blazer)
  4. Find a crisp white shirt. Absolutely plain. Preferably, new.
  5. Wear them together. Choose a striking color for a Pocket-square. Groom your hair and smile. Voila!
Formal Wedding outfit- All Black, black blazer, dark coat and white shirt with black trousers.

All Pepper, with a Dash of Salt.

Hope you like it!

Let us know. 🙂

Winter Weaves: Latest Mens’ Fashion

We’ve often wondered what would happen to the world without its wandering, wistful weaves? 🙂

Can you imagine a world of mens’ fashion with just prints everywhere? Say, a printed white shirt for office or a printed black formal shirt for a dinner party, or even more ghastly-a printed traditional Kurta/Sherwani un-fit for mens’ wedding? Sometimes, we can’t help but think how boring would the world be if there was ‘All print and No weave!’ :-/

Winters, especially in India (well, mostly north-India) are a fabulous time to experiment with beautiful, vibrant colors and like most stylish men in the Wild Wild West, Indian Men should also know a thing or two about the most fashionable weaves to flaunt in otherwise gloomy winters.

Style in case, this beautiful Turquoise Waffle-Weave Sweater which is a great fit for almost all sizes, thanks to the relaxed weave quality which does not look too odd over a bit of a winter-tummy! 😀 <Yay!>

Second in line to love is this fabulous Herringbone Three Piece Suit for Men, which is a classic choice for some heavy duty professional wear as well as some high-profile stylish dressing for a fashionably updated Indian man. 🙂

Last in the series of our favorite-weaves-for-Indian-men is this fantastic Open weave sweater for all seasons. The rich blue color on this stylish winter wear is ideal for all levels of cold and blends well with stylish outerwear like a casual Jacket or a simple black mens’ overcoat.

We love this because this simple piece can transform into a ultra-cool yet casual outfit for those who want to play it sporty, whereas it easily merges with understated style of wearing it with a beige coat or a grey blazer in Winters!

3. Fine Foldable Multi-way Prints

Sometimes the mornings are so hot that you may feel like wearing a sweat-tee instead of a formal shirt! Fine Print Shirts can come to your rescue by cleverly hiding those little crease marks, or sweat patches or just a lousy ironing after-effect by the virtue of a fading in-out print like the one below.

It also becomes a great choice as it can look equally fashionable when the arms aren’t folded & vice-versa.

Eeisha, South Delhi: “I thik, Indian Mens’ skin is naturally dusky and sheeny, and that compliments the various colors in a typical floral print! I love’em!”

Kriya Patel, Gurgaon: “Indian men have always been shy of wearing daring colors or bright prints, as they’re generally afraid of looking over-fashionable but then Floral Prints for Men really do that trick of perfect balance! Great prints when combined with Cool background colors makes the whole piece come out alive and buzzing. My Advice- Wear them as Shirts & Blazers ONLY! 😀

Sanjeev Gurung, Chandigarh: “Cool prints are already very popular with us Punjabis, so I guess we can easily pick this trend up. Who doesn’t love a fashionably dressed guy?”

Parineeta, Delhi: ” I’m always up for watching guys up and close, and what they wear on the upper part of their bodies generally catches my eye for good. I love men who experiment with their shirts!! Afterall, it’s one thing that has always been pretty boring since years.

Sure, there are a million and one ways to tie the damn things, but my best advice to guys looking for guidance is, well, not to overthink it! The best looks really are those that look like they were done only in a few seconds

What’s so great about scarves, anyways? But friends, really, there are so many different types that look great with a jacket and they are perfect for chilly weather! Check out below top 4 scarf patterns and explore ways to wear them as you read below-

How to wear them:

THE PARISIAN KNOT

Knot it like Beckham.

1. Fold the scarf lengthwise
2.  Drape it around your neck
3. Insert the loose ends through the looped end and gently pull through

Stylist’s note: Make sure, there’s only one knot and is neither too tight nor too lose!

THE LOOSE-ONCE-AROUND KNOT

  2. 2. Add jacket on top and button

Stylist’s note: A Classic style, best suited with professional attires! Don’t worry about the ends below the buttons, so long as they end around the bottom of the suit jacket. Get creative with a print like the polka dots above

Last: THE INFINITY SCARF

Easy & Simple: Just wear with jackets/coats

Pretty self-explanatory, right? Infinity scarves are really simple to use. Simply put it round your neck and you’re good to go! (Loop it twice if it’s long enough)

Stylist’s note: The infinity scarf is generally made of thick wool or a chunky knit, so wait til it’s really cold and you can wear yours with a winter coat. Don’t toss it over a Sweater or a hoodie, as both of them don’t really go together.

 

3 ways to dress like a King: A Beautiful Lineage

Sometimes, some things in a man never change. Instead, they trickle down from his ancestors to his immediate family and then, to him.

We’re talking about things like heritage, culture and of course the feeling of pride. Ego- pride of family and pride of money is what we’ve seen not changing in a man of taste. Maybe we’re circling it back to the Man, the Saheb in Saheb Biwi aur Gangster returns, which had loads of ethnic fashion.

One Word- Respect!

We stylists never leave an opportunity to spot mens’ fashion, be it anywhere- in the Hollywood, in real life or in the streets, but when it comes to off-beat Indian movies like the one we’re talking about, there’s nothing but respect! 😉

And, we thought of making it easy for Men, as we always do 😉 but here are the Top 3 ways to Dress like a King

1. Believe in Black

men sherwani, wedding dress for  men, sherwani, black suits, menswear, black suit, blacl velvet suit, mens kurta pyjama, bandh gala, band gala, designer suits, designer wedding suits

An All-Black Look is Powerful.

2. Use the Hair & Flair: A king-ly moustache with the royal Aviators is a die-for combination. Have a wedding to attend, and dont know how to keep your hair? 😉 we would say, stick with styling your Facial hair!

A King-ly Affair: Moustache!

Flaunt the moustache on a power outfit like this below-

Choose a Royal Color!

3.  UN-Match a Turban:  Nothing screams Style more than an effortlessly put outfit with an exceedingly chic Sherwani and a not so matching Turban.

UN-Match a Turban

Lest we say it, you must know that Cream is an excellent choice of color when it comes to dressing with a Turban, but the appropriate length and cut matters a lot on your personal style. Professional advice while choosing the finer details can save you a lot of money and can save you from wearing a not-so-great outfit!

The ONLY 1 Way to be an Indian Saheb!

Remember the days when having a Moustache were such a symbol of manhood?

We can just remember the Heroes of the lore, who had a Deep Husky voice and wore those Pathani suits! I mean, watch those movies once and your definition of a man gets seriously Hit on the face 😉 Yes, those Dhotis, those Band Gala Kurtas and those Short Pathani suits were the way Men used to look like Men. <sigh> ….those old days!!

Moustache: The Symbol of man-hood

Moustache: The Symbol of man-hood 😉

But with all recent heroes like Abhay Deol, Salmaan and Irfaan Khan’s who have worn kurtas in their movies, we’re now so smitten by the casual mens’ KURTA, that we’re seriously looking forward to ‘Saheb Biwi aur Gangster returns’! Supposedly a lot of Manly-Men will be seen. 😀

Look like a True Indian Saheb in a Pathani!

What we are stuck on is, the Rustic look and the LINEN kurtas worn by leading men in the film. Got our hands on this poster above where Jimmy Shergill can’t look more of a Haryanvi land dealer who likes his Madam to ride his Bolero 😉 If you know what we mean!

Pathani Suits are BACK again!
