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. 🙂

This is what we love about English Men. 😉 They slather some rich lotion on their freshly scrubbed skin and they’re ready to roll, but Indians are not far behind either. Ironically,  the Indian dusky skin, with a bit of sheen, is just the skin English women crave for!! 😉 Any more reasons you need, Men?

Life’s a Party: The ESSENTIALS of Casual Party dressing for Men

Now, it’s a Saturday and we all know tonight’s gonna be a good night 😉 but Men are so-o-oo full with work clothes, that you rarely find the right outfit when there’s a casual party calling at a friend’s terrace. I mean, you cant wear too jazzy or too white or too structured clothes cuz the party is on a Terrace, dude!!

So, coming back to the point when you know you have loads of work-wear like Shirts and a few blazers but NO casual stuff for a casual beer-party, but you still want to look good for all those ‘girls’-friends of your friends comin’ over, eh ;-). So, here is our best take on What to Wear to a Casual party.

A Denim Shirt is always handy.

A Denim Shirt is always handy.

Stripes never go out of fashion. Never for MEN.

Fitted Stripes & Chinos never make a Bad Casual.

WEDDING ALERT: So what’re you wearing, a Sherwani or Tuxedo?

A lot of times, our fellow members pop the same question to us like, “My brother’s getting married, what should I wear?

And then come the doubts like, “I want to wear something formal but not western”; “I want to leave the blazer to Cocktail party”; “Don’t want to wear a coat- it’s too common!”; “Shaadi is all about ethnic wear…I want to try something different”; “Should I try a Kurta pyjama or a sherwani but not very groom-like!”.

We get many questions and a spoon full of doubts that range even higher like, “Women can wear heels to look taller, but if we wear high sole shoes we only look weird. So, how to look taller at a wedding?”. And guys, yes, today we’re in a pensive mood 😉 and we are concerned only about 2 things today-

  1. Sherwani, and
  2. How to look Taller in a Sherwani 😉
wedding dress for men, wedding outfits for men

Sherwani makes most men look good. True Story.

Since you’re a guest so you don’t want to be shini-er than the groom I guess 😉 So, a stylish Sherwani or a great Kurta-pyjama or a great Kurta-Dhoti combination will not only make you look Different but also Chic.

(Yeah, so we’re a li’l objective today) And, here are some reasons to buy a Sherwani right away-

  1. It gives you natural length as the Kurta generally touches below your knees and gives you optically-illusive length
  2. Whatever design your Sherwani may be, the neck is generally a tapered placket, which makes your neck look slimmer and angular.
  3. You look warmer, friendlier and more approachable 😉 vis-à-vis a Suited man next to you!
  4. You break the convention of the Common by going traditional.
  5. It shows that you put some thought into your outfit and you’re smart not to be wearing a Blazer.
  6. The Juttis/ Mojaris for Men (worn together with a Sherwani) are a great relief to the eyes vis-à-vis the same old grey/black/brown shoes

Many a royal men wear Mojaris with a Sherwani

OK. Now lets get you a Cheat-Sheet to look Taller

1. Opt for Sherwani with a tapered placket instead of a bandh Gala

Sometimes a bad Bandh Gala leaves you Without a Neck 😉

2. Go for a readymade Dhoti,with a kurta so long that it stop at your knees. Churidaars look good too,just ensure that it doesn’t have too many rings at bottom.

A gorgeous Sherwani/Kurta likes a well fitted Churidaar

3. Opt for shinier/lighter color of the Churidaar than that of the Sherwani

4. Opt for smaller, wide-set prints on a Kurta than big block prints. Also choose lighter colors than darker ones like greys/browns etc.

This is something experimental but, Someone with height concerns, should try avoiding styles like these-

wedding groom suits for men, groom wear, traditional groom wear for men, wedding groom suits is about 4k

The dark color & Bad choice of Shoes stubs his height!

5. Lucknowi/Laknavi kurtas have a natural advantage as many a times, the chikankaari runs vertically, and hence the subtle length.

6. Focus on Kurtas that have embroidery stopping at the mid of your chest. It gives you more torso-area to keep the eyes fixed at the right areas of a Man 😉 we meant the ‘chest’!

7. Keep a Stole ALWAYS styled on one shoulder if you want to look taller. NEVER cross it on both as it cuts height

Men, a cross-styled Stole is NOT for you. Ever.

And last, Dhoti with a Sherwani is just so sexy that we cant deny but do NOT ever wear a Stole or a Dupatta alongLets keep something for women to protect their assets, shouldn’t we? 😉

Also, See how Mr Khan rolls it in Style with his many shades of Sherwanis.

Men, TAME the Tuxedo.

Look One: Traditional Tuxedo

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

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.

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!

Stylesaute blazer shop onlineFinal 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.
