The Alternative to Black Tie

June 1, 2014

0

Just because it says “Black tie” doesn’t mean you have to dress in traditional penguin tuxedo. The key is understanding the rationale behind the black tie dresscode. General interpretation is that when the invite states “black tie”, the implication is that it’s a formal affair, requiring gentlemanly elegance in posh surrounds. Still, while every man should own […]

Men’s Accessories Fall Winter 2013-14: Barrett Alley & Persol

August 14, 2013

Keep Pockets slim with the Disciple Wallet The Disciple Wallet from Barrett Alley is the latest card holder on the war front against fat wallets. While mass produced slim wallets from Bellroy are quite laudable (do check them out), nothing beats the time-tested traditions (and luxuriousness) of handcrafted leather. Shipping with a lifetime guarantee, the Disciple Wallet […]

Sartorially Italian: Gucci x Lapo Elkann Style Collaboration

August 9, 2013

Apologies, I’ve been busy with yet another stylish magazine; This print + web publication called The Millenary aims to put the world of haute horlogerie in context, that is- luxury watch collecting with all the other sartorial accessories that go with it. That said, my mind never strayed too far away from my other passion- this […]

Smart and undeniably casual: Bucks & Co Spring Summer 2013

April 28, 2013

0

Bucks and Co epitomises the Alpha Male and with their 2013 spring summer menswear collection has managed to achieve just that with their haberdashery of selvedge denim suits. That said, we can’t be nostalgic for the age of cowboys and horseback riding because ‘nostalgia’ is a state of yearning for an era we have lived in […]

The most stylish movie ever made: The Thomas Crown Affair

April 24, 2013

5

I recently caught the Pierce Brosnan remake of the 1968 original Thomas Crown Affair and I’ve found it wanting. While the 1999 incarnation has gratuitous sex (probably more a statement of a decade of Basic Instinct led cinematic titillation), I felt dirtied rather than stimulated by its tawdry. Inversely, the original affair was showcased on the precipice of […]

The classically elegant neckties of Passaggio Cravatte

April 18, 2013

3

It’s often a second thought, the necktie is normally chosen after one has decided which suit to wear. That said, ties allow us to express individual style- they can make an ensemble dressier or turn a formal look into preppy smart casual. The real tragedy is that neckties are the single most versatile dress up-dress […]

Author Gay Talese and what makes a real man

Continuity from Particle Media on Vimeo. For many in the #menswear community, men’s style tends to fall closer to the side of trendy than classic and there’s nothing wrong with that. Personally, I’ve been indulgent with what’s fashionable rather than what’s classic more often than I would have liked. The truth is- being fashionable gets […]

Bonobos x The Monsieur: Guide to Menswear Spring 2013

April 11, 2013

Menswear in Spring time is a high point in every sartorialist’s calendar. It’s one of the few times where the less confident among us can explore the realms of sprezzetura without an iota of self-consciousness. While surfing my usual favourite web spots, I came across a well curated collection of spring summer 2013 looks that […]

Menswear for debonair men: Check blazers and Oliver Sweeney Kilties

March 28, 2013

0

We all know that the well dressed man is back but what exactly makes him “well dressed”- is he perennially in top hat and coat tails? Obviously not. Dressing well is about projecting your personal sense of style and good taste rather than lumping a collection of blazers, shirts and trousers and calling it a look- It’s […]

Beyond Savile Row: Knize Mode Atelier in Vienna

March 16, 2013

0

Douglas Fairbanks once dubbed Savile Row the “undisputed capital to men’s tailoring”, while that is true, it does not mean that suits beyond the Row are substandard. Instead, there have been many men’s suiting boutiques that have served various Royalty throughout Europe, the Habsburg Archdukes for instance, got measured up at Knize Mode Atelier in […]
