A new attire for every occasion, a new Beginning!

None of us like to repeat the same dress when going for that important day! All men say that dressing is not as important to them, as to woman, but we all know that charm and dashing personality can never take a secondary step!  A new year has opened its arms to us and its time for us to make that small wish once again to dress new for every occasion. Be it a job interview, a wedding or a secret date with your new girlfriend. 


Dressing aptly

Suiting up well for any other pursuit that life throws up to you, the foremost step is being prepared! A prepared mind emits the required confidence and zeal to make the important endevours of your life and achieve the success of your wishful thinking. Dressing aptly for an occasion is one such grounding that each one of us require to outshine in a venture.

 Beginning with the Basics

In our life the 20’s are the imperative years where we brush up our basics. These are the formative years of a person’s life.  If you are in your 20’s we suggest you to give into experimentation. In your formal attire you may include the following:

* A classic white shirt

* A blazer

* Suit in grey

* Tie in a solid colour.

Enhance your attire seamlessly in formals. You will never go wrong with the above.

Colour up wisely!

As you grow with age, keep on experimenting with colours. The colour of shirts that you choose, the ties that you prefer to wear and so on. Have the colours that you choose to wear be the ones that complement your complexion.

 Survival of the fittest!

Gone are those days when clothes were bought a size bigger than necessary. Have the real radiance of your personality spread in a well trimmed clothing. Making an impression becomes simple when you wear clothes that fit perfectly. So, if you are gearing up for an interview or are going for a wedding strike an impression in clothes that suit your personality and have a neat fit.

They say, ‘first impression is the best impression’. But why make only the first impression the best?

Get the Color Right

A man who knows how to wear color well can really turn some heads. According to Kim Johnson Gross, co-founder of Chic Simple Ltd, men shouldn’t be afraid of color but should embrace it. They should experiment even if it’s just with shirt colors. Kim and I discussed this topic and we came up with several tips men need to know about wearing color.

  1. Especially wear color in summer
    Summer is such a festive time of year. Light and bright colors are de rigeur. So I advise you to choose a color that is your signature color for the season and one that enhances your natural skin and hair tone.
  2. Stay away from beige colored shirts
    Beige is a bad color for shirts or any article that is around the face. It is rarely a good color for someone. I don’t know why designers continue to push this color on us. Just don’t secumb to the pressure.
  3. French blue is always a good choice
    French blue, which is a rich medium blue, is a flattering color for most skin tones. It makes a great dress shirt, which is mainly where you will find this sumptuous hue.
  4. Stay away from bright, solid-colored socks
    Colorful socks are okay if they have a design like stripes or argyle. But bright, solid-colored socks are simply not a good idea. Donny Osmond is suddenly coming to mind.
  5. Keep color around the face
    Again, it is important to keep flattering colors that enhance skin and eye color around the face. You don’t want to look like you just got out of the hospital, do you?
  6. Stay away from loud patterns
    They are distracting and ultimately not a good thing. If it was ever in, it was the eighties, but we’ve thankfully moved on.
  7. Take a look around you
    If you are baffled about how to incorporate more color into your wardrobe, take a look around you. Look at ads and store displays. For example, Ralph Lauren really uses a lot of color in his collections. He styles his clothes well—gives classics a twist by using color. Also, Brooks Brothers has more recently had great options with color. If you are traveling abroad, see how the locals use color. Italians are probably the best at wearing color–you would be hard pressed to see people there wearing dark, drab colors.

Formal Shirt-Basic Know how’s!!!

A man’s formal shirt can elegantly frame his face during a presentation and later absorb his perspiration during a tough round of questioning. It can play a supporting role by enhancing his sport jacket or it can stand alone and be the centrepiece of his outfit.

But why would any anyone read this article because details matter. In any given day we only speak with a small percentage of the people we see; the shirt you wear, in the absence of a jacket, is the most powerful signal you are using to non-verbally communicate with those around you. Your shirt, whether you like it or not, is speaking for you; make sure it’s saying what you intend.

What is a Formal Shirt: A proper formal shirt is a button-up shirt with a collar, long sleeves, and wrist cuffs. It is usually made from a cotton fabric woven and dyed into various, non-obtrusive patterns and colours. By altering these characteristics, a dress shirt can either send the message its wearer is ready for sport or ready to meet the president.

Formal Shirt Fit: Most men wear dress shirts that do not fit them properly. The problem is that readymade garments are made to fit many; as a result, they fit no one perfectly. We all compromise somewhere if a shirt fits us in the neck it fails us in the sleeve length; if it fits well in the sleeves, it billows out around the stomach. So the fit described here is generally only achievable on a custom shirt or one that’s close to fitting and then tailored by a skilled hand.

A well fitted dress shirt should first and foremost be comfortable; this is different for every man. Larger men are usually complimented by a looser fit while petite and thin men are complimented by a more form cut. In general, though, a shirt should:

  • Allow two fingers in the collar when buttoned.
  • Be tight enough around the wrist so that the cuffs must be unbuttoned to slip them off.
  • Have long enough sleeves so that you can raise your arms like wings and not pull the cuffs down the forearm; they should be short enough so that you don’t have more than 1 inch of fabric bunching near the cuff when your arms hang.
  • Shoulder points that extend to the end of the shoulder and no farther.
  • Have room in the chest and waist to pinch out 1-3 inches of fabric (depending on fit desired).

When a men suits up he wants to look best and for this  best look he never hesitate to buy custom made shirt of his budget. Sometime during very special occasion he could go beyond the budget also to get the best fitted shirt.

The biggest difference between the dress shirt and sports shirt is the fit. Sport shirts are more loosely fitted while dress shirts are more tailored and meant to be worn with a tie and under a suit. Simply put, dress shirts should fit you like they were made for you. They also tend to be more expensive. Why is this you ask? Dress shirts have better construction, better detailing and are typically made of better quality cottons.

At the P N RAO stores we have a wide range of formal shirts from brands like Louis Philippe, Zodiac, Zod, Denis Parkar and many more.
