Pocket Squares...Why are they important?


What makes menswear interesting?

Is it the cut, make, fabric or the color... For me ‘Details’ are more important than anything and accessories play an essential part in forming such details...



One of the accessories that I swear by (‘never leave home without it’ kind) is the ‘Pocket Square’. Initially they were just used for hygiene purpose and were made of linen fabric. By 1920’s people started using it as a quintessential fashion accessory in combination with a suit, vest and a hat.

For Your Sartorial Viewing Pleasure...


The Great Gatsby!

Adaptation of  F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel of the same name... The movie is placed during 1920's (roaring twenties) in U.S... The time for prohibition of alcohol which made the period even more sinful... 

The star cast includes the likes of  Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire who look sartorially sharp and sleek whereas Carey Mulligan turn heads with her sensuous flapper look...

For some reason the movie looks like a Ralph Lauren's video shoot... The clothes, mood, cars and backdrop is so Ralph Lauren...

Eagerly waiting for it to release (2013).

The Boater Hat...


Sometimes all you need is one little accessory to make the outfit work ... In this case the boater hat makes the simple combination of navy and white look so special...

Men & Cigars @Billy Reid...




There is something very masculine about men smoking cigars... I know smoking is not good for one's health but I can't surpass the feeling I had when I saw these fine looking gentlemen who work at the Billy Reid store in Soho...

The look is very casual and comfortable... beating the heat is the main thing... cotton shirt, trousers/ shorts and jackets with no socks helps you to maintain the cool while still maintaining a little dressy look...
