EXPANDING MEN'S FASHION - BREAKING THE NORM
Posted on January 20 2016
With new beginnings in the New Year, we thought it would be a good idea to explore the upcoming men’s style section of the year gone by. Men’s fashion has come a long way since it’s conception, but agreeably people still believe that fashion choices are limited for men. Nevertheless, 2015 has been an eye opener for many in the men’s fashion industry, it has been the year of experimental fashion – vivid prints, suit separates, tweed jackets, pastel colours and so on.
We tell you the tricks behind being old school but still on track with the latest trends.
Although widely used in the nineteenth century by the British highland chiefs and landholders, tweed popularity plummeted as the use of denims became the new cool, shunning it to a fabric for the ultra-conservatives, geography teachers, hunting, shooting and fishing types. Not anymore! Tweeds have come back into fashion with a bang, thanks to TV shows like Downtown Abbey. Whether for Friday casual day or a dinner date with your partner, pairing a tweed jacket with a printed shirt and denim, or with a plain T-shirt and slim fit formal pants, tweeds never fail to impress.
Mixing it up with waistcoat and casual blazers
It’s all about smart dressing these days. A waistcoat you thought you can’t pair it with anything but that particular suit? Wrong. It’s all about mix and match. Too plain a T-shirt? Throw on a waistcoat to get a dressier look. Too flashy a shirt? That’s what casual blazers are for, dressing you up in an instant without going over the top. A flashy waistcoat and a pastel suit? Try it out! Simple, suave and smart is the way to roll. Go ahead and experiment to find your own style.

Try this combination for a fresh touch to the normal suit
Within no time, this newbie has taken the industry by storm in India and abroad. It has become a close second or a soon to be tux replacement. Whether it is a wedding or a black tie event, a Bandhgala is a showstopper. Again, don’t be reluctant to try it in a number different of styles. For instance: Try pairing your full sleeve Bandhgala with your denim jeans or your sleeveless bundy with a formal shirt and trousers. Whatever your choice maybe, a Bandhgala is sure to pave way to make the finest impression.
