Custom-Made Shirts by P N RAO

Life gets more and more hectic by the day, with hard working hours and off work hours seeming shorter and shorter. The last thing you need on a Friday night is to waste time in getting home to ‘change’ for the party, which could very well be at the other of the city, with miles and miles of traffic! Yes, the world can indeed work against you, and it gets rather consistent with that!

Thankfully, PN Rao has finally unveiled its latest line of custom made formal shirt made of pure fabrics, which work for both work-wear and party wear! These slim fit shirts are super comfortable and thanks to a special lining on the collar region, there’s no need to worry about the afterhours!

This of course means no more wasting time waiting in line for the weekend! Or the odd weekday party for that matter. And for the Mumbaikars, what better time for the parties now that Dhoble is gone?


Put Your Best Foot Forward !



With Eid behind us all now, it goes without saying that everybody has tucked in more than their fair share of scrumptious food from their neighbors and friends, or both!

While most will have that heavy feeling in the morning, it’ll be time to shed those extras kilos, no we will not talk about grams here-it’s pointless!

Have you paid enough attention to the kind of footwear you are using-for jogging, walking or otherwise?

Most of us make a very common yet understandable error of judgment, choosing fashion over form! It’s not rare seeing men choose shoes that look good, but are hardly comfortable at all.

Unbeknown to most, shoes are probably the most important ‘article of clothing’ you can invest on! Prolonged use of improper footwear causes unnecessary stress on the knees, eventually damaging them irreversibly. They also cause stress on the back and spine, damaging your posture and eventually rendering you rather useless!

Different sporting activities require special shoes which are easily available now,gone are those days when your uncle or auntie in the states had to bring them for you, only to realize that they don’t fit well!

Always buy shoes in the second half of the day, when physical activities expand your feet a little, and always make it a point to try both shoes, and walk around in them. They shouldn’t bite, feel cramped or be uncomfortable at all. Make sure there’s ample room to wiggle your toes. Keep in mind their weight, and breath ability.

It’s a known fact that some of the best shoes in the market are plain plug ugly, and the good looking ones might result in gangrene and amputations!

So choose wisely, after all, happy feet make happy men!



It Is That Time of The Year Again!


With our country celebrating its day of Independence tomorrow, the air is rife with an electric energy, of celebration and pride, a day to look back at history and tip our hats to the ones who gave their all for us.

How about experimenting with natural homegrown fabrics for a change? Khadi and cotton kurtas with a cool ‘dhoti’ would really set the mood for celebrations, and clubbed with a little jute ‘jhola’ you can play with the tricolor all you want. And don’t forget to slip on a pair of ‘kolhapuris’ or ‘mojris’ while you’re at it!

Or how about paying homage to your personal heroes from the pre-independence era by dressing up like them, or accessorizing? It is of course a great way to know your heroes and connect with them at a deeper level.

While the monsoons keep playing hide and seek, you can complete the look with a classic black long umbrella, be it rain or shine, you’re always prepared!

And lastly- a very Happy Independence Day !

Always Look Your Best !

Listen up guys – here are some style tips for you. Follow them and you will be followed!

Experiment with style: You need to go out there and try new things; that’s the only way you will learn. Make an effort to try something completely out of your comfort zone whenever you are at a store. Sometimes you will end up loving something you never thought you would. Many guys are afraid to express themselves through their style. Don’t be one of them. Have fun with styling once in a while!

Invest in a superb pair of shoes: If it’s one thing that women will notice, it’s your shoes. Especially how clean and sharp they look. If you don’t have a pair already, it’s time to invest in a pair of lean-lined loafers or lace-up brogues.

Wardrobe must-haves: Every man needs at least one well-tailored suit, a few pairs of well-fitted blue jeans and khakis and a classic white shirt. Athletic wear is great for those lazy Sundays. A casual shirt such as a polo or button down is a must have to wear with jeans or other casual pants.

Cleanliness can help you later: It’s no secret that every woman is pretty much obsessed with hygiene. If you need a haircut, get one. Beard and mustache need trimming? Do it. Mind those unclipped fingernails. After-shave lotion is NOT cologne, so get yourself a decent man’s cologne – women love fragrances. And remember punctuality is right behind cleanliness.
