2. This Amazing Fragile-looking Fabric in Translucent White

White is a color that never, read NEVER goes out of Fashion and this is one big fact that almost all Hot Italian Chicos swear by it. 😉 Read again, Swear-by-it. We see no rhyme or reason why we shouldn’t swoon on this color & fabric combination in our Indian Summers!

3. Fine Foldable Multi-way Prints

Sometimes the mornings are so hot that you may feel like wearing a sweat-tee instead of a formal shirt! Fine Print Shirts can come to your rescue by cleverly hiding those little crease marks, or sweat patches or just a lousy ironing after-effect by the virtue of a fading in-out print like the one below.

It also becomes a great choice as it can look equally fashionable when the arms aren’t folded & vice-versa.

Where: Are the fashionable men?

We love collecting photos of Vintage Style, Classic Fashion and ofcourse Modern Trends. We follow Bollywood fashion, men in vogue and all suave men in the industry. Although, we might like to focus more on Indian mens’ style, but at the same time we don’t leave out foreign fashion either!

People sometimes wonder where the stylishly dressed men are, but they are not all at the Runway Collections or Indian mens fashion weeks, instead they are on the street; they are the men about town! 🙂

See, our take on “What’s in fashion for Men” & “The Stylish Men of 2013” in this post to follow. See, a few cool (and equally Hot!) pictures we collected from a few fashion stylist friends of ours-

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

men sherwani, wedding dress for  men, sherwani, black suits, menswear, black suit, blacl velvet suit, mens kurta pyjama, bandh gala, band gala, designer suits, designer wedding suits

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!

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! 😀

And, thank you Aparajita for letting us know your favorites across Travel, Clothing and more but I guess we’ve interested our readers enough on other important aspects of BlackBerrys and your life! 😉 Hope ONLY Sharp Men were listening!

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
mojaris for men, juttis for men

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

Too Shiny for my Eyes!

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.
