STYLE UPGRADES FOR THE NEW YEAR

For years the default male wardrobe offered by retail stores hasn’t been particularly colourful. It focused heavily on variations of blue and white for shirts; navy blue and charcoal gray for suits. Experimenting with color hasn’t necessarily been a man’s forte, well until now. From vibrant red shoes to Chris Martin’s tie-dye, 2017 has seen it all. Look dapper and up your style for the coming year using our tips.

CHINOS
Chinos are a must-have item for the modern man. A smarter alternative to jeans, chinos can be worn all year round; from navy and wine to stone, tobacco and air-force blue. Tailored or slim fit, this style of trouser can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. Team them with a casual shirt for the day or a smart jacket for the evening. Whether paired with formal wear or casual wear, chinos are the perfect wardrobe addition to take you effortlessly from day to night.

SHOES
Shoes are more than just something to cover your feet. They are one of the biggest style statements; if your shoes don’t match your outfit it’s a big no-no.
It can be quite difficult to style your pair of funky, bought on impulse shoes and colourful socks with your formal wear, well 2018 has only one thing to say to that- ‘Go for it!’. Shoes can turn your entire normal outfit to a bold one, that makes people look at it twice. Fashion, in the end, is not about what blogs tell you, but about what you like, and what you can pull-off.

RIPPED JEANS
Ripped jeans are very versatile and you can style them in no time as they’re functional, easy to wear and can add a bit of personality to your look.

Here are some styles to make you look more put together.

Street Style
It’s a really simple look, you can’t really go wrong with this one. Just put on a flannel over your old tee and you’re good to go.

Smart Casuals
Smart Casuals are slowly becoming the in thing for young men to incorporate into their lifestyle. A simple waistcoat, with a simple tee, and perhaps a scarf instead of a coat will give you a relaxed look for an evening stroll or perhaps for a casual dinner. Ripped jeans for a smart casual attire is very rare but not completely unheard of. So just go for it.

These styles are something that we definitely look forward in 2018, but in the end, wear your confidence first, and everything else will look amazing. There’s nothing worse than not being happy with what you have on. Push yourself, experiment, but also, always remember that, what makes everyone take a look twice is your smile.

Mojris

Mojris are the perfect match for your Indian attire. You can opt for a patterned design that complements your traditional look. Use a thin cloth or thin brush to remove the dirt off your shoes and let it dry in the sun. When storing your mojris, wrap each shoe in muslin cloth, the cloth will let the material breathe and will retain the shine of the shoes. You can also try pairing your Indian footwear with jeans and a kurta for a more relaxed look when attending a sangeet or mehendi ceremony.

 

Pocket Squares

Pocket squares gained popularity as a fashion statement in the 1900’s.

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! Be sure to check out our range of readymade clothing from J.Hampstead and Oxemberg along with those from our fashion partners Cadini. We have something for everyone.
So where do your preferences lie? Tailor-made or readymade clothes. Let us know on our Facebook page!

For a festival such as Ganesh Chaturthi, a classic kurta pyjama with the iconic Nehru jacket will let you celebrate the festival in style. The jacket can always be taken off when a lot of dancing is involved and worn back on when it’s time to socialise.

When in doubt, always pick black. Black should be your go-to colour whenever you’re confused about what attire to don during the festive season. Instantly slimming, black will never go out of vogue. A bold colour such as this will help you make a statement while keeping the festive atmosphere celebratory.

When it comes to festival footwear, the first thing to look for is comfort. Unlike women’s footwear, men don’t have to choose from flats or heels. It would be wise to choose footwear that is versatile and will last you through the festive season. A pair of juttis or mojaris will complement your traditional attire. For any western outfits, it’s best to stick to the classic oxfords to complete your look.
