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?

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.
