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!

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!

Winter Trends: Top 4 ways to wear a Mens’ Scarf

Scarves are one of those accessories that guys think are more mysterious than they really are.

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-

Neck to Neck: A scarf lives many lives.

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

Take it Easy.

  1. Drape the scarf around your neck making sure one side is longer than the other
  2. Wrap the longer end around your neck – not too tight! – and let it hang

Suit it to the Occasion.

  1. 1. Drape scarf around your neck
  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.

Said all the Bakers (Norma Jean Baker aka Marilyn Monroe & Carroll Baker, our hot Hollywood actress) once, that a

3. Invest In My First Leather:   Leather jacket is the kind of thing that will stay with you for years and years and will only get better with age, eventually becoming totally unique to you. And, when we finally discover our perfect leather jacket, we’ll be wearing it with jeans, plain tees and desert boots, or maybe even Chelsea boots (if we’ve found them by then). Sanjeev gives a <sigh> 😉

Leather Jacket is like a Soul-Mate. It'll stay with you for years and is UNIQUE to you! StyleSaute can help 'You' find it.
