5 reasons why you should choose “Ready Made Formal Wear”

Men often get stumped by the choices – readymade or tailor made – when it comes to formal wear. While the people who swear by tailor-made clothes will always have something against them, we’re here to break the myths and the reputation surrounding readymade clothes.

So here are 5 reasons why Ready Made Formal wear is definitely an option to consider!

1) Wide Variety of Designs
Choosing the right make of fabric and design can be a daunting task when selecting fabrics for formal wear. This trouble is more or less avoided when one opts for readymade outfits since they are updated with every season, keeping in mind current fashion trends. Age old patterns like checkered, pinstripes for shirts are always re-invented and given a contemporary look. So all you have to do is choose a style that suits your taste!

2) Made for Everyone.
Manufacturers have realised the importance of customizing for the masses, and for this, they have introduced various fits in shirts, trousers and other items of clothing. Shirts are now available in styles such as Slim Fit and Regular Fit and are comfortable and accentuate your body type in the most subtle way possible.

3) Lower Wait Times – Perfect for those in a hurry
While nothing can come close to bespoke suits that are crafted to meet each and every minute detail specified by you, you will often come across moments in life when you require something very fast. The long process of getting yourself a custom-made suit just won’t cut it for you. Then what?! Cancel Events? NO! A readymade suit with minor alterations can do the trick!

4) Know exactly what you’re getting
While for a lot of men, the wait might not be a huge deal, fair enough! But let’s not forget about the fact that, there will always be a level of uncertainty of how the clothes will turn out to be after they are stitched. While a lot of people may have trusted tailors that they have known for years, some may move cities or localities and end up hunting for a tailor that suits them again. If you find yourself in a situation like this, walk into one of our Siyaram’s Store and experience our Tailor Fit services for clothes with an exemplary fit.
If time is the enemy, opt for something off the rack. With readymade clothes, one knows what exactly he is getting and there is always someone at the store who will give you an opinion about the choice you are making.

5) Economical
Last but not the least, contrary to popular belief, readymade clothes are not more expensive than bespoke wear. If nothing, it is usually cheaper or at par with your tailor-made formal outfits. Investing in yourself is one of the most important things and, spending your hard earned money wisely is of utmost importance.
So these were a few reasons to prefer readymade formal wear over a custom stitched one. However, at the same time we need to understand that readymade clothing also cannot be trusted blindly, hence, it is really important to understand the fabrics of the brand you are making your purchase from.
With Siyaram’s you can get the best of both worlds with the readymade clothing we offer, so you can be sure of receiving the best quality of fabrics, and a bang for your buck!

Grooming tips for business travelers in monsoon

While grooming to your finest is a prerequisite for any business traveller, during the monsoon, you must take your grooming tips up a notch to tackle the humid weather and the odd splash of rain here and there. If you think you are doing your best, think again! We have a few tips that will help take your grooming game to the next level.

Hair Care

Contrary to popular belief that one can skip a hair wash during the monsoon, it is more important to wash your hair at least every alternate day if not everyday. This will ensure that your hair is free from dust and grime. The important thing here is to use a mild shampoo and conditioner as they will help you to retain the normal texture of your hair. Keep hair products like hair wax and gel at bay as they aren’t the most monsoon friendly products. Keeping a short hairstyle that doesn’t need a lot of maintenance will help ensure that your hair is at its finest best.
If you do grow a beard, ensure that it is well maintained and trimmed at regular intervals.

 

Nails
Keeping your nails well cut and cleaning them from time to time is of the utmost importance especially when it’s open season for all the bacteria and germs out there. There is no shame or anything feminine about a man getting a manicure/pedicure. A manicure/pedicure will ensure that your nails are clean and monsoon ready.

Deodorant
We can’t stress on this enough! Everyone must invest in a deodorant that suits their body and at the same time helps keep the perspiration away. With the humidity in the air on the rise, it becomes ever so important to invest in a deodorant that keeps away body odour.
Because let’s face it, no one points out if someone isn’t smelling great but if you aren’t, that is noticed quicker. So save yourself from the embarrassment of body odour and keep a deodorant handy with you at all times.
Accessories
While we may all awe at the marvel of leather goods and its finish, the rains do not take kindly to leather and leather products. A few splashes and your beloved leather bag’s lustre will start to fade, the material will stretch out and will eventually give way. No one would like to see you carrying around a worn out leather bag on your business trip.
It is best if you keep your leather items stored away safely and opt for substitutes like TPU leather (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) or Faux leather. Materials like TPU leather and Faux leather give your accessories the look and feel of leather but these do not give way as easily as leather and can handle a few splashes. Again, that does not mean that these materials are water resistant. Care must still be taken to ensure they do not get wet in the rains.

Shoes
Like we mentioned above, keep your leather items locked away and that includes your shoes. Opt for TPU leather shoes during the monsoon and ensure you have the ever classy formal look when you travel. The high level of humidity in the air coupled with the splashes that your shoes undergo might make your shoes smell unpleasant. But don’t worry, we have a simple hack for you! Carry around spare unused tea bags and keep one in every shoe overnight every time you feel there might be unpleasant odours emanating from your shoes. This trick isn’t just limited to your formal shoes and works for your sneakers and running shoes too!

So these were a few tips that will ensure that your grooming does not take a hit this monsoon. A compromise on grooming is a big no-no, all it requires is a little bit of thought and voila! you’re all ready to take your grooming to the next level. And always remember- “Function over Fashion.”
So feel free to add grooming tips that you have created on your own for the monsoons.
