We at StyleSaute are considered experts at doling out style advice, like, What to Wear on your Coffee-Date VS What to Wear on a Dinner-Date, but we rarely get asked on how to seal the deal!
Last week, we were in rapt discussion with one of our customers on how he always got complimented on his dressing sense but that wasn’t leading to his favorite chick being interested in him.
So, naturally we asked a couple of well-dressed fashionable mortals on how do they do it. 🙂 And, below are the 3 tips to well mannered Dating:
Arrive before time, and arrive prepared: Flowers are old fashioned but it almost always stokes hearts! Show up with a bunch of orange or pink roses and be sure of the Romantic date to follow.
Talk about your hobbies: Indian Men are awfully proud of their success but shy away from opening up about their true personality. Show her what drives you, and what keeps you interested! Seeing someone talk about their passion and hobbies is a great way to knowing someone from the inside.
Practice your signature move: We’ve all been there, having that aww-k-ward moment when you want to hug her but she moves forward to shake hands! Or, worse you’re a feet away thinking you don’t want to be a creep whereas she wanted to lean in on a kiss! So, practicing your own closing line at the time of the Good-Bye, with your final-move is helpful!
Hope these tips are helpfulwhen you go meet your Swipe-Right! 🙂
In the end, a well dressed man rarely stays un-noticed! 😀 Feel free to reach out if you would want us to dress you for that special occasion, however these styling options will work almost everytime you show up:
A Neat Shave: Make sure you’re freshly trimmed or shaven when you meet her.
A Well Ironed Coat, jacket or an Overcoat: Make sure lapels of your coat are well ironed and come with no stains!
Clean hands: Yes, this! Never knew this could make so much of a difference, right? Well, when you;d hold that cup of coffee or the stem of the wine glass that you so hold, her gaze is going to rest at your fingernails and overall cleanliness of your hands!

Here’s what to buy, and the order to buy it in. I’m aiming for value here, so this will run you well under Rs 20k all told, and you’ll have the pieces for about 15 different outfits.
1x brown oxford or blucher shoes. A lightly-used pair of brogues, lace up brown shoes from Woods or Aldo or Zara should do it for you. Steve Madden can be extremely attractive but expensive.
3x oxford shirts. One white, one blue, one with a simple pattern. Look for BlackBerrys, UCB, Allen Solly, TopShop, F&O, American Apparel.
2x Chinos. Go to ZARA and Benetton again.
1x Navy blazer. Jackets are very difficult to fit, so you’re best off buying in a store. H&M, ASOS, Van Heusen, Louis Phillipe could be your good bets.
1x GOOD jeans. Gap Selvage in classic or slim cut can be looked into. Levi’s 514 are also a good choice. As dark a wash as possible, without any “distressed” details or extraneous pockets.
Grey v-neck sweater or cardigan. Look only in international brands as none of the Indian brands actually sell one!
Accessories: Stick to solid ties in grey, navy, and burgundy. Keep your jewelry to a 2 piece MAXIMUM. Watches count as jewelry. Go for collar stays, belts from Hidesign and Hugo Boss accessories. Calvin Klein metals can be tried.
Another pair of shoes (black)
Another jacket (grey)

A black tuxedo jacket paired with accompanying trousers is an example of sleek, timeless style. Break up the dark tone of the suit with a crisp white dinner shirt; bib detailing is essential. Accessorise with a bow tie and pocket square combination. Footwear wise, you can’t go wrong with classic black patent leather. Suede loafers or boat shoes are a bolder option but definitely worth considering
Look Two: Tuxedo Stylish
Mix up this formalwear favourite by opting for a bold coloured version, sharp accessories and dandy footwear. A burgundy tuxedo is a solid option, Keep the shirt nice, simple and, above all, plain white. Just be wary not to clash your suit with the tie; it’s all about understanding basic colour principles.
Look Three: Tuxedo Smart-Casual
With the classic formal approach out of the way, its time to focus on dressing down your tuxedo. Check out the options below to see how a formal Tuxedo can be converted into smart casuals, effortlessly!
Final Word:Men, always remember that the top half of your Tuxedo outfit should reveal more about you as a man than any other ensemble. However you wear your jacket, whether traditionally or in a modern way, just ensure that the essence of the black tie remains.
