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.

Fashion Fashion, on the wall; Who’s the coolest of them all?

Readers, you’ve heard of it and you know it by heart now, because cotton has its stories, yes it does. 😉 Cotton made in England, made in Egypt, the Pimas, the Gizas and the super fines! We’ve heard that cotton is a cool fabric and there’s enough cotton in the stores that you can almost spin into not one but many yarns 😉

Enough said, enough seen. And we hate to break it to you, but dear Sirs and darlings, take a stylist’s word for it that there’s nothing cooler than Linen here. Now that’s the beauty- beautiful things are rare and expensive. Linens are generally not freely available and only a couple of brands will store it. It’s a natural fabric however Linen’s texture doesn’t allow a snug fit, so you’ll always find them sewn a little wee bit loose.

Now to ask a Stylist the most pertinent question of all: How should you wear Linen?

Here are spilt the 3 golden rules to wearing Linen-

a. Structure is the KEY. Introduce Linen in a subtle way to your formal wardrobe. Pair a summery linen shirt with your structured trousers

Linen: Structure is the Key

b. All-Linen is super hot. Team an all- linen look for extreme power. A similar shade here and there is a great idea as it will add length and visual interest in your outfit. Preferably, when it comes to ethnics, an All Linen look in same color will look great!

c. Make it look sexy. We haven’t stressed any little on the fact that a great idea to turn around your wardrobe is to try a little ethnic sometimes. Pair a solid Linen (colored/nude/light) kurta with a jeans. Just sport sexy hair with the outfit and you’re a sex GOD. 😉

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

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

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. 😀

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!

Undoubtedly the MOST superb looking neck style is the Band-Gala. Lest you didn’t notice, Aviators really do it for this Kurta 😉 and so do they do for Saif!
