    Tailored suits are making a comeback

Say goodbye to those readymades and ‘hello’ to your tailor. 2019 is the year that brings back handmade tailored suits. Well, the benefits of well-fitted suits are endless. With tailored suits you can choose and decide everything from the fabric, cut, colour even right down to the style. You can also opt for a more relaxed look, as compared to slim fitted suits as people are opting for wide legged trousers.

  1.   Earth Tones

The colour palette for this year is more grounded in light and earthy colour tones. Look at more browns, khakis, greens and even beige with the occasional greys. When choosing your outfit, keep in mind that the tonal colours shouldn’t be more than 3 items. This is the time to try out the basic and smart casual look, you can always add a little bit of colour to it by wearing some trendy accessories.

  1.   Double–breasted suits

Since Tailored suits are making a comeback, investing in double-breasted suits will not be a bad option. Tailoring is a major key when getting yourself a suit, but you needn’t worry about that now, do you? (For a customizable suit you can check out our #TailorFit services here: http://bit.ly/Siyarams_Store)  You can either choose to stick to the traditional tweed and pinstriped patterned, or you could opt for a more modern and refined look. For a more modern approach, look at bold coloured suits that can be used for a casual as well as for a smart business look. Just keep in mind that the remainder of your outfit should compliment your suit, not contrast it.

  1.  Corduroy is back

While a pair of denim is a must for every wardrobe, must we suggest another necessity? Corduroys, the earlier cords were baggy and loose-fitting the modern pair now is more altered to current trends. The great thing about cords is that it works perfectly for a casual as well as formal events, provided you get the outfit right.  Keep in mind that the trousers aren’t baggy and that your shirt should share the same fabric thickness. Don’t hide behind a safe black pair, try a blue or even grey pair. Try experimenting with a coloured corduroy suit if you are up for it.

  1. Cropped trousers

According to Pinterest fashion predictions of the year, their key search for men’s cropped trousers increased by 671 percent. Cropped trousers are a great way to show off your colourful socks and ankles. One of the modern day necessity, you can wear them to casual as well as formal events, be it summer or winter. The length of the trouser is of uttermost importance, too long and it will look like a pair of regular pants, too short and it will look as if you outgrew them. Cropped trousers should end just above the ankle.

  1. Check Mate

Checks will always be an all-time necessity in a man’s wardrobe. While it’s not that difficult to choose from the different types of checkered clothing available, getting the right size makes all the difference to your outfit. Right from windowpane suits to gingham print or a Prince of Wales pattern, checkered clothing is slowly becoming a favourite trend. To prevent your outfit from looking too checkered, keep the larger checks for your outerwear; trousers and jackets and the smaller prints for your shirts and ties.

  1. Mismatched Prints

If we would have told about this style a few years ago, we are definitely sure that you would disregard it. But it’s 2019 and though some of you might dread it, the mix matching of prints is officially a trend that is here to stay. So if you enthusiastic to try this trend out, keep in mind which patterns are okay to throw in together.

When mixing the same patterns, a variation of size, colour and texture should be your golden rule. For example, you could wear a thicker vertical stripe shirt under a pinstripe suit. Or follow the rule of checks that we spoke about in the previous paragraph.

On the other hand, if you are considering mixing multiple patterns within the same outfit layering will be the best way to do it.

Maintaining a consistent palette is very important, so if you are sticking to tonal colours, make sure that all the pieces of your outfit match the same tone.

The Strong Impact Of Colours

Have you ever stopped to think about the colour of your clothes? When shopping for clothes, you’re probably processing 2-3 pieces per second until one of them absolutely stands out and makes you want to try it on. Colours play an important role while shopping for new clothes. Let’s understand the impact of colours better and why they play a vital role on a daily basis in our lives.

Finding the right shade for the right season

It is suggested that certain colour palettes are best suited for particular seasons of the year. During winters, it is better to wear colours that are sharp and clear. White, black, navy blue, and red, all look easy on the eyes. Summers are all about bright colour palettes. For lighter colours, icy tones are preferable to pastels. Avoid tones like beige, orange and gold. 

Colour Wheel to the rescueA colour wheel often comes to the rescue when you’re in a dire need to save a fashion mishap. After observing a colour wheel, we can see that there are 12 main colours ranging from red to violet, green to yellow, and all the way back to blue to red.These are basic colours that can be referred to as hues. Upon addition of black or white to any one of these hues, the range of colors that can be derived is virtually endless. The trick is in understanding the position of each colour on the wheel, how close or far apart they are is what makes them easy or difficult to coordinate.

Colour Combinations for Casual Style

Casual colours usually don’t make us dive into a state of excitement, but they’re likely to be easy on the eyes. Build your casual collection by adding bright colours such as shades of orange and green. These look good with the Indian skin tone and are also different from the white, blue and black that most men wear. Try wearing your blue denim or cotton shorts with a bright toned tee and white trainers. Simple but effective. You will see how much the colours pop and compliment each other.

Monochrome never goes out of fashion

A monotone chromatic colour scheme is simple and always  stays in trend. Take one particular shade and adopt 2-3 variations of that colour, creating an impact with the hue. Attempt to experiment with dark and light shades. The main ingredient is the pairing of the tint and the shade. Since the colours are similar, there is more room to differentiate by adding texture and layering. 

Colours and colour combinations are an important aspect of fashion and menswear. They add variety, personality and fun to your closet. If you are ever in doubt, pick a colour and don’t be hesitant to play around with the tint and shade.

Fashion Essentials for your Summer Collection

Every season has its particular characteristic when it comes to dressing up. It’s all about thicker fabrics, darker colours and simple patterns in the winters. But as we move on from the chill of winters towards the scorching heat of summers, our wardrobe demands for a change. Summer dressing should always consist of light fabrics, bright colours and bold patterns. Embrace the long sunny days and put your stylish foot forward. Here are a few tips that could help you figure how to do that without burning a hole in your wallet. From Cotton Shirts to Beach Shorts, here’s our pick of summer fashion essentials to help you look your best during this season.

  1. A breezy Linen/Cotton Shirt:

The most exclusively essential summer staple, a Linen or a Cotton button-down shirt which provides ample versatility when the temperature soars. It’s one of those classics that can’t go wrong during summers. Wear it as a dress shirt or a casual shirt, it’s perfect for any occasion this season!

  1. The Perfect Summer Shades:

Sunglasses are simply the best summer accessory you can have in your wardrobe. These come in different shapes and colours ranging from the Wayfarers to the Aviators and the new in-trend round shaped sunglasses. Opt for the style of sunglasses that complement you and your outfit.

  1. A Stylish Suit:

Be it a summer wedding or just any work meeting, when it’s about having to wear a suit, we suggest wearing something composed of a light fabric like cotton or linen, or any cotton-linen blends. You’ll be more comfortable and fashionable during the hot days while keeping yourself away from the sweaty mess.

  1. An Inexpensive Watch:

Summer’s are a call for long vacations which involve occasional trips along the beach. If you wear watches at the beach, we suggest sticking to a cheaper alternative watch as it may catch humidity from the water. There are tons of cool, low-priced, water-resistant watches in the market that are your best companions for the season.

  1. Go light on your Feet:

Give your socks a rest and show some ankle! Socks are strictly optional during summer. Loafers, Sneakers, Derbies, even a pair of Flip Flops look good with a bit of ankle showing and are sure to compliment your attire for the day.

  1. A Simple Hat/Cap:

Whether you’re chilling at the beach, out for a small picnic in the park or just taking a stroll on a sunny day, a good hat will keep your head and your face protected from the heat. Trust us when we say, a hat works better than a sunscreen.

  1. Simple, Comfortable Chinos:

Say no to denims and heavy fabric trousers for the months of summer. Chinos are the best lightweight alternative that need to be added to your wardrobe. They may look unstructured or boring, hence rolling them up to your ankle would make a pair of chinos look casually cool.

Plain and casual basics are core to building an amazing and eye-catching outfit. Hopefully, after reading this guide, we know you’ll be rest assured as to what kind of staple pieces need to make the cut for your summer wardrobe, the inexpensive way.

An ultimate guide to different types of Collars

Contrary to popular belief, not all shirt collars are the same. Men’s shirts come in a multitude of collars and they lend character to the different looks these can create. To help you make the right decision, here is an ultimate guide to various collar types to suit different occasions.

Spread collar

The Spread collar is the basic collar seen on most shirts. With its crisp pointed ends and the wide spread between the collar points, the spread collar gives a nice formal look. Since the collar tips are spaced wide apart, this collar gives you the freedom to wear any type of tie or  even a bow-tie for that matter.

Pro Tip: If you have a narrow face, sport the spread collar as it can visually widen the wearer’s face.

Straight Point collar

The straight point collar is similar to the spread collar except that the spread between the collar is smaller. This is a more classic type of collar that looks great with a classic suit and makes the wearer look more elegant and polished. If you prefer slimmer neckties with a smaller knot, then this is the perfect collar type for you.

Pro Tip: The point collar looks great on a man with a round face; the collar’s elongating effect will help to even out the look.

Button-Down Collar

The button-down collar has buttons on the end of the points to fasten the tips to the shirt. The convenience is that the collar points always remain at the right place and in the right shape, regardless of your activity. While this collar can be worn with a tie, it is not a formal collar type. Hence, this is perfect for people who prefer minimalist outfits on non-formal days.

Pro Tip: The buttons on the collar always need to be fastened; to appear with undone collar buttons would be a faux pas.

Wingtip Collar

The wingtip collar is the most formal type of collar, usually worn for black tie events. It gets its name from the folded out collar points that look like tips of a pair of wings. This collar is designed specifically to be worn with a Tuxedo along with a bowtie.

Pro Tip: This collar type best flatters a narrow face.

Mandarin Collar

The Mandarin collar or standing collar is a short unfolded stand-up style collar. Popular versions of the Mandarin collar include the Nehru collar and the band collar. In recent times, the band type of collar is the most popular. The uniqueness of the band collar is that it does not have collar leaves. It’s just the thing for those who want the ultimate casual look.

Pro Tip: You can substitute your traditional outfits with mandarin collar shirts.

 

We hope this short guide to collars could be helpful to you. Tell us your favorite type of collar in the comments section!

Infusing Colours in your Summer Formal Wardrobe

One of the best things about summer is the presence of vibrant colours in one’s wardrobe. However, most men tend to be a bit conservative when it comes to colours. It’s no secret how relatively easy it is to pull off neutrals in formal wear, but let’s face it, when it comes to our wardrobe choices, we are limited. After all, how long can we be repeating the same shades of white, grey and black in our formal wear? For even though these are classics that can never go out of style, they can get repetitive.

Of course, it’s not easy – brighter hues can get overwhelming – but introducing a tinge of colour into your wardrobe can bring in a refreshing change. Experimenting and adding colours to your wardrobe is a sureshot way to look trendy and stylish. So it’s time to update your formal wardrobe with colours and express a trendier version of yourself!

Read on to find out which colours you can bring into your wardrobe.

Blue

The colour blue is perfect for summers. The lighter hues in the shade translate a feeling of peace and calm that seem relaxing in the scorching heat while the darker hues communicate a feeling of trust and confidence. This colour is a winner for every occasion in your office. Pair it with beige, black or grey trousers and top it off with sleek formal shoes.

Yellow

Though most of you may not be comfortable with sporting this colour, yellow should have a permanent place in your wardrobe. It can completely liven up your simple office look. Yellow is uplifting and exudes cheerfulness and fun. It inspires creative thoughts and optimism, something that can really boost you up at work. If you are not totally confident with pulling this colour off, play safe by going for a lighter shade like warm yellow. It is, however, a statement colour and needs to be anchored with neutrals. Keeping this in mind, always pair it with surrounding pieces in white, blue, grey, beige or charcoal.

Pink

First of all, let’s get over the fact that pink is a colour meant only for the fairer sex. Pink is vivid and radiates the warmth, joy and love for life like you do. It will raise some eyebrows, but you have to be comfortable in flaunting this colour. Pink can be your go-to colour when you are bored of wearing normal black and whites.  

Pink pairs well with the plenty of colours you already have in your wardrobe like beige, blue, brown, olive and white.

Red

Red is a powerful colour associated with feelings of energy and passion. It projects confidence in a way few other colours can. Red comes across as being very flamboyant and is perfect to create a strong first impression. If you are not a big fan of this colour, you can try a varied range from bright red to profound maroon. It’s easy to pair it with any trouser you own be it black, cream, navy blue or khaki.

With brighter skies on the horizon, now is the time to bring in the trend of colours and stand out in the crowd. It is worth considering some of the hues you thought you couldn’t wear. So unleash that inner child within you.

Red Carpet Fashion Evolution – The 90th Academy Awards

Everyone, from the common man to the fashionistas, looks forward to the trendsetting Red Carpet fashion at the Oscars. As always, we saw a varied range of men’s outfits from different styles and cuts of suits to a variety of textures combined with embroidery. To mark the celebration of one of the most prestigious award ceremonies, let’s take a look at the fashion evolution that took place over a span of five years, that is from 2013 to 2018 at The Academy Awards.

2013

Tuxedos, the ultimate red carpet classic, shone excessively on the 2013 Oscars red carpet. Actors Eddie Redmayne, Chris Evans and Chris Pine sported their rendition of classy black and white Tuxedo and finished the look with a stunning pair of shoes and perfect ties and bow ties.

2014 

This year we saw a fashion curve taking place as men took to wearing solid-coloured suits on the red carpet. We loved Ansel Elgort’s bold royal blue suit and a neat black bow tie,  Michael Strahan’s maroon tux underlined with black trim and singer turned actor Jared Leto adding a twist to his tuxedo by wearing a white blazer, black trousers and a red velvet bow tie.

2015

Another year, another tuxedo, but 2015 was about experimenting with the classics. One of our favourites was Actor Adrien Brody wearing a white jacket with black lapels while David Oyelowo shone in his brick red attire and the host of the night, Neil Patrick Harris in his neat grey ensemble.

2016

Shades of blue, grey and monotones graced the red carpet in 2016. Our favourite picks from the red carpet were Ryan Seacrest, popular radio personality, TV host, and producer, who looked dapper from head to toe in a well-fitted cool grey suit. Also, The Hulk protagonist Mark Ruffalo in his midnight blue blazer and Kevin Hart in his all-black ensemble with embellished outlines.

The year 2017 didn’t really experience bold fashion statements, yet actor Dev Patel went classic with a white jacket and a black bow tie. Ryan Gosling hit the jackpot in a classic black tuxedo with a white ruffled shirt, while, Pharrell Williams was seen with his own version of a morning coat on the red carpet.

2018

Velvets, leathers, bold colours and exquisite embroidery were a few elements that were vividly seen on the red carpet. The top pick for the day had to be Black Panther protagonist Chadwick Boseman, looking stunning as he arrived at the red carpet in an intricately embroidered long black jacket paired with leather zippered boots. Other favourites of the day were Armie Hammer who was dressed in a red velvet-clad tuxedo and Timothée Chalamet who effortlessly pulled off an all white-on-white ensemble.
