We know reading the word ‘denim’ in monsoon might immediately activate warning bells in your mind, but here’s the thing. One, us men are extraordinarily attached to denims.

3. Hem the sleeves :

Just like your trousers, the sleeve of your suit as well needs to be hemmed. If your jacket sleeves are reaching till your knuckles, then it’s definitely way too long. The exact spot where your jacket sleeves should end is at a quarter-inch to a half-inch before your shirt sleeves do. Plus, this length is as well perfect to show off your cuffs.

4. Take note of the collar gap :

People often make a mistake of getting a suit that touches up till their neck. Maybe you wouldn’t notice this, but, everyone around you will definitely! The collar of your suit’s jacket must not completely touch your neck. It is supposed to stay away from the collar of your shirt and thus leave a gap. Also, anything more than a small gap between the suit jacket and the shirt can make it look shabby and thus, ruin your complete ensemble.

But, make sure that you don’t take it too in, as you still need space to move around. Aim for a fit that is comfortable yet makes you look presentable.

Alert! These 5 fashion rules are not to be broken by Indian men!

December 21st, 2018

For most of us, men’s fashion is about three primary things: expressing our individuality, wearing clothes that we feel comfortable in, and opting for styles that fit into our budget. While the debate on trendsetters and rule-breakers flourishes with time, there are some golden rules that have and will remain intact. Let’s look into 5 such guiding principles that Indian men ought to follow:

1. Whatever you wear, wear it with confidence :

Think of Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar. These Bollywood icons have taught us one real fashion mantra – no wonder if you wear a dhoti skirt or dye your hair grey, feel confident in your attire. After all, if you yourself are not comfortable in your ensemble, how can you expect others to approve of it? So, leaving aside the way you have styled yourself, being confidence is by far the first rule in latest fashion for men.

2. Layer it up :

Yes boys, layering your shirt or graphic tee with a jacket, scarf or a blazer is the new cool in town. It adds emphasis and modesty to an otherwise casual look. However, though more and more men are choosing to layer up their outfits with pullovers or shirts, it is vital that the entire look go in harmony with the individual elements, which brings us to the next point…

3. Less is more :

We’ve all heard the popular saying, ‘Anything is excess is poison’. This statement holds true in fashion, too. It is good to layer outfits and wear accessories like belts, watches, or hats. But, keep in mind that over-accessorizing ruins your entire look. It will not only put you in bad light but also look simply un-cool. So, stay away from overwhelming the fashion police with the less is more men’s dressing style.

4. Wear the right fit :

You may be wearing the best label on the market, but what good is it for if it doesn’t fit you properly? Wearing ill-fitting clothes is perhaps the biggest fashion flaw you could ever commit. Just think about it – would you personally give thumbs up to a pair of jeans that is loose around the waist or wear a shirt whose buttons don’t close around your body?

5. Don’t underestimate the importance of your footwear :

Last but not the least, you should focus on what kind of footwear you wear to sum up your look. This is as vital as choosing an attire for an event. Just as a sherwani is not fit for a boy’s night out, a pair of sneakers is not the correct choice to wear to a wedding! Your footwear needs to gel well with your outfit. As long as it is in sync with your clothes and the event, you are good to go.

Fashion is all about experimenting with trends and styles. No doubt that there are no hard and fast rules to it, but some rules go a long way in bringing out the best version of you. So the next time you decide to let your fashion do the talking, keep in mind the above points.
