Choosing The Perfect Outfit This Party Season

Who doesn’t like the month of December? With the year ending and the many parties to attend, and with this comes the question ‘What should I wear?’ Putting together a perfect outfit for each party can be a little taxing as everyone wants to look their best. To make sure that you look your finest this festive season, we have put together a guide that will help you decide your attire according to each occasion.  

The Black Tie Event

A classic well-tailored tux is the best attire you can wear to such events. When dressing for a Black Tie event, make sure that your black three-piece tux is well fitted. A bulky suit or a very loose one will spoil the entire ensemble. Your white shirt can either be a single pleat or a double pleat. You can always experiment with your bow tie, but the most worn colour is black. Wearing a cummerband is optional if you are not wearing a waistcoat. Do keep in mind that your cummerband should match the colour of your bowtie. Complete your look with an elegant white pocket square and cufflinks. Lastly, no look is complete without well-polished shoes. A black leather pair will do the trick in this case. Make sure you are well-groomed when wearing this attire. If you are not comfortable going clean shaven, then make sure that your beard is trimmed well.

The Office Party

Your office party attire will depend on the dress code of the party. For a less formal look try pairing your light t-shirts or sweaters with your formal trousers and a smart jacket. Make sure your t-shirts complement the jacket. You can always accessorize your jacket with a simple pocket square. To add more elegance to this look, make sure your formal shoes are well polished.

Casual Get-Togethers

You can loosen the reins for this outfit. A plain shirt paired with casual trousers will do the trick. You can add a quirky bow tie or even suspenders to enhance your look. Since winter is here, layered clothing is back in trend. Try pairing a navy blue sweater with your white oxford shirt and a smart charcoal grey blazer over it. So even if it gets a little warm you can always remove the above layers and still have a complete independent outfit.

The most important thing to remember is that you should be comfortable in whatever you wear. Do make sure that you are well groomed and that your hair is styled and beard trimmed accordingly, to match the look. You can always accessorize your looks with a well-matched belt and proper shoes. Let us know which look you like in by commenting below. You can also follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

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.

Pick your perfect monsoon style – Men’s Essential guide

With the onset of the monsoon, fashion usually takes a backseat & rightly so, with the primary motive being to protect yourself from the rain. But, what if we tell you, being fashionable in the monsoon isn’t as difficult as you think it is. What if you could stay stylish without taking the risk of getting drenched in the rain. Scroll down for our tips to make sure that you get the perfect monsoon style.

Shirts & T-shirt
Selecting the right fabric to tackle the rains is of utmost importance. Natural fabrics like cotton are the way to go since they dry faster and remain odour free. Avoid fabrics that bleed colours.
When it comes to selecting shirts for the monsoons, half-sleeved shirts are your best bet. If you can’t do without your full sleeved shirts, you could always roll up your sleeves. Check out our last blog for the perfect sleeve roll to give you a contemporary look this season.
This dull weather is the best time to lock away your darker colours and switch to pastels and light hues.
For an informal occasion or outing, a colorful printed t-shirt paired with the right trousers/shorts can go a long way. If printed t-shirts aren’t your style, sticking to plain t-shirts in light colours and shades is a safe bet.

Shorts/Trousers
Opt for shorts made from cotton, a versatile material with a wide variety of colours and prints to select from which will give you a fashionable look for your casual outings. Cropped pants could be preferred for a more formal setting. Trousers made from lightweight, quick-dry fabrics should be on top of your list to tackle the rains. These will help elevate your look to another level while ensuring you stay cool and dry. Stay away from denims as they don’t dry quickly and become heavy when they get wet.

Jackets
A jacket is a must-have in each man’s wardrobe. For the monsoon, a waterproof jacket with a hood should be preferred as they can help you keep the umbrella safely locked away.
Avoid jackets without a hood no matter how good they look, your head and hair will eventually get wet in the rain. Don’t be afraid to add a dash of colour while selecting your jacket to add a bit of vibrancy and style to your look.

 

 

Umbrella
If a jacket isn’t your thing, then you have no other option but to go for an umbrella. Umbrellas today aren’t only about protecting you from the rain, they can also be a style statement. With a range of bright colours and designs to choose from, an umbrella can complete your ensemble.

Shoes
The monsoon calls for your leather and suede shoes to be packed up and locked away in the cupboard. While wearing fashionable footwear is always important, selecting footwear with the right sole is of utmost importance. Soles made of rubber are durable and reduce the risk of slipping to a minimum. Wellingtons (Gumboots) and Floaters are tried and tested choices for the season.

 

So, these are a few ways to make sure you are ready to face the dull weather in the most practical, yet fashionable way possible. Feel free to add your own style to your outfit and let us know on our Facebook page.
