Now, you know how we just love the word ‘random’ and ‘abrupt’ so here it is an interview of one of our favorite brands- Blackberrys! We may be a bit Random, cuz thats how Style always is, 😉 but Blackberrys is one home grown brand that we’re proud of and love for its Structure, for a change 🙂 We love the Sharp-ness and the Power BB shirts come with. So read below and see what a few top shots at the brand are talking!

1. What are the most famous fits from Blackberrys and Why?

Slim fits. In trousers, our B90 fit which is low waist, slim fit has been the most popular fit. Needless to say, in all things fashion, it’s the slim silhouette which has been ruling.

4. Any style tips you’d want to share for men who are slightly round on the belly?

Our website, facebook and twitter community has some interesting dressing up FAQs and latest fashion advice. 

We got speaking with Aparajita Biala, a super hot marketer and a Woman-in-standing 😀 at BBs and this is how it looked-

1. Your Favorite place: By far, my recent favorites have been its been my window seat at home, mountains: the summit of kedar dome ( 22410 ft ) and Island peak (20,100 ft ), river walk by thames, London.

2. Your fave style heaven in India for men: Blackberrys J

3. What from Blackberry’s range would you choose to buy for your spouse: I think I would pick up pretty much everything; but the top 2 would be – the bandgala jacket, which accentuates the ‘V’ of a man. And well, ofcourse, one can never get enough of a man in a crisp white shirt.

Blackberrys Band-Gala is just so Chic

4. Do you help your spouse do his shopping? How frequently: I’m sure I would, if I did had a spouse. I would imagine, it would be all the time! J

5. Your spouse’s fave brand: Can’t answer that one, I’d have to imagine Blackberrys will have to be up there for him

6. Your fave mens’ brand apart from Blackberrys: Paul Smith is an interesting brand – quirk and humour matched with classics. 

7. Your fave mens fashion blog! 🙂

There aren’t too many in mens fashion blogger domain in India unfortunately. However, I’ve been following StyleSaute off late and think it has great potential.

Some of the other portals I follow are thesartorialist, GQ, styledotcom amongst many others.

Well, that was some insight. Glad to know we’re on the list with GQ! 😀

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.

Your Boss sucks! And so does his Sense of Fashion!

It’s time and again that we bump into our Bosses, and most of the times, we fashionable people end up talking about his BAD style of dressing! :-/ Not always in sarcasm, but sometimes in pity and sometimes in Mockery as well 😛

hahaha, infact, while we’re writing this, our fellow Stylist-Dev is animatedly talking about Girish, our Tech-Geek who is nicely built, tall and medium set and has a nice pair of back-knockers 😉 but still wears those God-forsaken Cargo pants !!!

And, there he goes today with his loose jeans with a SHINY (!!!) Blazer. 😦 Now, this is A pity. Why, Girish? <We hope he doesnt read our Blog as much as he does spend time on the website!)

Now, lets stop talking about Our Bosses and instead focus on some Bosses we’ve seen around! 😉 Go to these Gyms and the managers sit around with a great body and a chest to die for, but Alas! these young managers think showing off their moobs and cleavage is fashionable :-/ But darling readers, #Moobs Suck! and Male Cleavage Sucks bigger :-0 

Alright then, Guys. What we’re saying in a nutshell is, please DO NOT-

1. Wear Over-shiny Blazers. These Blazers are silvery-metallic-shiny-sparkly-satiny! Please Do NOT Buy them and if you did, then do NOT wear them! 😉

Shiny Blazers, party blazers, party wear for men, dress style for men

2. DON’T Wear Baggy pants, or Jeans that dont FIT you or Pants with multiple Pockets! This style is just NOT for 2013 and won’t come around soon anyways 😉

3 Things U Need: Life, Style & a Stylist. 😉

a. Find your Favorite Brands– Brands which fit you perfectly, which fall in your budget range and which speak your personal Style

b. Trust someone in the Business. It’s like, when you trust your friend who recently bought a Civic to guide you on which latest model to buy. Similarly, follow a Stylist or a Fashionable blogger you like, and trust his/her advice.

c. Experiment with Upmarket Brands once in a while. A lot of times, what you want to become is reflected by your clothes. Try including a high-power, high brand piece in your outfit to appear more powerful, more sophisticated at work.

Real Question: I am roundish in the middle. What should I wear?

We get these questions a lot.

1. “I have some Tummy that I love, but how can I HIDE it?” 😦

2. “I am a little roundish in the middle. How to dress now 😦 ?”, and of course this one-

3. “I have a weird, pear-shaped frame. What pieces should I wear to offset my larger hips/thighs, making me look more manly?”

Well guys, we know that Round is a Shape too, and 6 packs of chips can give you a ROUND six pack 😉

Beer and Butter? Being Round is still being in Shape! ;-) Don't Whine, Only Shine (& look slimmer)

And nothing to worry about but almost Everyone has a bit of a tummy and that extra pound of Fat. And we dont suggest Liposuction. 😛 We suggest Corrective-Style-Surgery. 😉

DO’s

1. There are a number of pieces you can add to your wardrobe to give your physique more of a V-shape. V-neck or Y-neck t-shirts should become your new basics as they’ll create the illusion of the body you covet

2. Wear these V necks under blazers  to further help smooth out a bulky lower half. Go for Blazers with a smaller side-vent and medium lapel. Wear bigger checks and stripes with interesting patterns except Horizontal.

3. The Length of your Blazers should stop at the mid of your hip.

4. Go for Herringbones print/weave in your Outerwear.

ALL that was for the “Dos”.

And for Don’ts, we have a short and sweet list here 😉

DONT’s

• Avoid heavy fabrics
• Avoid big patterns
• Avoid horizontal lines
– turtle necks
– crew necks
– bow ties
– pocket flaps
– wide lapels
– pleated pants
– horizontal stripes
– check
– plaid
– contrasting colors
