Light Comfortable Clothes:

You need not wear all that leather suits and dress when you are on vacations but comfortable clothes can weigh much in terms of style quotient. Cotton Tees with minimal texture along with comfortable shorts can do wonders for the style factor.

Classy Knee-Lengthers:

All those shorts, Bermudas or Knee length pants can be given a thumbs up if you are travelling for quite a lot of time. As comfort is the key, shunning those denims can be a hard decision but it can surely reward in terms of lesser luggage to carry.

Look for speed drying, wrinkle-free, breathable fabric, not to mention the option for a good match of pants. If possible avoid cotton bottoms as they tend to get crumpled in no time rendering a messy look to your attire. Cargo pockets can be a useful while travelling as long as they don’t look peculiar.  However, once in a while it’s fine to have a jeans or a stylish pant sans too many pockets

Comfortable Burmudas

Pleasant Shoes:

Footwear is essential and is seen as an indication of class in numerous parts of the world. Restrain from Sneakers, beach slippers or complex designer shoes. You can do with pleasant dark or chestnut Oxfords shoes and even boat-shaped shoes. Shoes must be sufficiently strong to enduring the harsh climate and agreeable for long stretches of walking.

Must-Have Accessories: 

Venturing out in places can be quite adventurous but also dangerous in the circumstance of any unnatural occurrences. Carrying safety accessories is a must and you never know when the need may arise. A Swiss knife, scissors, some match sticks and candles could help you with unforeseen circumstances. First Aid kit should always be the utmost priority. Do not forget to safeguard your luggage with chain lockers.

Formal Wear For Men: Frame It Right

Festivities are seasonal. Work is perennial. We may or may not voluntarily choose to decorate ourselves in festivities. But dressing up in formals is compulsory. Hence it’s always advisable to put our best foot forward while dressing up in formal wear.

Formal Wear in recent times is almost synonymous to office wear. It is a clothing style highly influenced by the western culture as against Indian culture which preferred clothing like dhotis and kurtas. White shirt and black pant is the stereotype for formal wear. But the irony is that today in some places even waiters have the same dress code and color code. So the next time you see someone in white shirt and black pant do have an idea about his work before giving him your business card.

Formal wear for men is an integral part of every office going man’s wardrobe. So framing the right set and wearing it right is very important. Here are a few things which you need to consider while selecting and purchasing a formal wear for yourself.

1. Formal Shirt-Paint It Right:

You need to choose the color of your formal shirt very wisely. Once you have chosen a wrong color, you have ruined your appearance and lost your chance to cast a good impression be it for an interview, date or an occasion.


Paint it right whether it is the first impression or the last impression. Go for a shirt with subtle patterns and monochromatic or light colors. They high-light your upper body bringing attention to your physique as a whole. Bright colors like yellow, orange, green are a big no for perfect formal settings in office though people are getting much more experimental nowadays and are embracing bold colors as well.

Given above is a palette with 30 most used monochromatic colors. It will serve as a guide while making your choice for formal office wear and I assure you that you can hardly go wrong with this palette to guide you. If you need more help with colors and color palettes, you can go here.

2. Formal Trousers- Break It Right:

If you are wondering what a break in your formal trousers signifies, here’s your answer. It is basically the number of fold/folds in your trouser when it meets the shoe.


Full Break, Half Break, Quarter Break and No Break are the standard breaks found in formal trousers and when you choose your trouser, lookout for the break. Avoid too many because they make you look sloppy. It looks as if you have either bought a pair of trousers carelessly or borrowed it from the wrong person or you selected it off the rack and forgot to visit the tailor before wearing them.For more information on formal wear for men visit

3. Accessories- Flaunt It Right:

Though the general rule is to keep it simple and minimal, there are few accessories you can flaunt with your formal wear attire contrary to popular belief that such attire is devoid of all kinds of adornments.

·         Wrist Watch: to be on time and assert punctuality.

·         Cuff-links: as a replacement for buttons and to add a fashion touch.

·         Tie: because it is a part of formal attire rather than an accessory.

·         Tie-clasp or Tie Pin: to stop your tie from swaying on your face.

·         Cologne or Deodorant: to beat the body odour and appear well groomed.

4. Footwear-Wear It Right:

We all seem to be comfortable with slippers and Hawaii chappals but it is a very bad idea for formal wear. Stick to formal shoes with formal wear. You have plenty of designs and patterns to choose from. Color? Black and Brown is something which is traditional and will go with all your formal wears.

A man’s appearance is very important especially at the workplace. Keeping this thing in mind, selecting the right attire for formal wear becomes important to create an everlasting impression and presence.

Jodhpuri Suits And Sherwani–Male Counterpart Of Sarees

In the last post, we explored sarees from the perspective of a male. This time I collected the information from some females in my life to know “what is the male counterpart of elaborate costumes like sarees and ghagra cholis”. The answer was unanimous. What sarees and ghagra cholis are to women, Jodhpuri Suits and Sherwani are to men. Ethnic Indian Wear for men is dominated by Sherwanis and Jodhpuri Suits.

Jodhpuri Suits and Sherwani Make Men look Royal:

Weddings and other jubilation events require a great amount of pomp and grandiloquent celebrations. When women are beautifully dressed and adorably accessorized how can men stay behind? Men too have found their go to attire in the form of Jodhpuri Suits and Sherwani. These costumes give men a regal look due to their refined cuts and graceful styles. Mrs. Vandana, a teacher and my aunt opines “I want my husband to look as gracious as me when I attend a wedding. If I am clad in a saree and he dons his regular wear, my saree definitely outshines his attire. Hence I made him buy a Jodhpuri Suit”

What better way to express your masculine aura than a well crafted Sherwani or a Jodhpuri Suit? Both are equally elegant and are prominently capable of drawing attention and sly side glances from women. Richa, a friend of mine who works in advertising industry backs up this idea. She says “when I attend a wedding or social function, guys dressed with formal shirts and trousers no more interest me. It’s the men with traditional ethnic attire who steal the show”. The traditional choice becomes an asset looking at what modern women like Richa think.

Men’s Age And Men’s Fashion

Like I had mentioned in my last post that people in general and men in particular have stopped wondering whether fashion for men exist or not. Instead they are pretty sure that it not only exists but they will have to be pretty fast in embracing it wholeheartedly if they don’t want to be thrown out of the race of life and pace of life.

Today I thought I would write a quick synopsis on how the age of a man affects his sartorial choices. The phases of a normal man on the basis of his age factor can be divided into the following main categories – Childhood, Adolescence, Youth, Adulthood, Middle Age and finally Old Age.

Different phases of men's life

Different phases of a man’s life

In his childhood, a man is not capable enough to make his own choices, and others choose his clothes for him. The chooser generally is his mother but it could be his father or any other family member. Once he attains adolescence, he struggles to assert his individuality. This may result into his choices getting more rebellious. He makes funky choices and his way of dressing is often influenced by the way his friends dress.This is the time when a man wants to exhibit his personality with attitude and he may make some insane and outright insurgent choices.

Once a man passes the adolescent stage of life he starts job hunting or decides to venture into a business and his dressing sense accordingly becomes extenuated from spunky to formal wear so that he can blend in the work environment and be generally presentable among his colleagues and superiors. He shuns experimentation and tries to play safe while dressing his wardrobe mainly consisting of formal shirts and formal trousers. Brands like Oxemberg play a huge role in shaping the stylish taste of men in the formal wear arena.  Their collection can be found at

Once in the middle ages, most men have achieved a lot and climbed the corporate ladder. They are not just well established but also well distinguished and this change of position reflects in the branded labels they choose while accentuating their status and underlining their power. The dressing becomes more power packed to help him take control of the board room meetings or the business discussions.

With the old age setting in, the dressing gradually shifts towards elegance. During this phase, finesse is a sought after element while wearing something along side comfort. Thus a man has different tastes in different age of his life cycle and brands and marketing personnel can largely benefit if they design their products to define a man’s personality according to his age and requirements.

Fashion For Men-Does It Actually Exist?

Men's Fashion

Does Men’s Fashion Exist?

Fashion in explicit terms is the way of styling though it can mean much more when implied to one’s personality. It is the reflection of one’s innermost persona and attitude. It can be enticing and elusive at the same time. It can exude your true aura or absorb you completely. But one thing is for sure. It is the expression and extension of the real “you”.

Since a long time in history, fashion has always been considered women’s domain. Women used latest trends in fashion to outrank other women and appear beautiful. Men who thought about fashion or dressing were considered feminine and were laughed at by everyone in society. Men and fashion simply didn’t go together and women predominantly ruled the roost.

 Earlier a male’s wardrobe would start with three kind of shirts-plain, chequered and striped. It would end with three shades of trousers-black, blue and brown. His whole life revolved around lack of choices in terms of apparels. So there was no question of being fashionable in all other arenas like perfumes or accessories.

 But the setting of urbanization and modernization has brought about a phenomenal change in a man’s lifestyle. To excel in the era of globalization, men have different persona to portray in every different aspect of his existence. He has to be a doting family person. He has to be presentable at work place. He has to hit the gym regularly. He has to attend parties and remain socially active. He has to pursue his own hobbies and last but not the least he has to take care of his spiritual belief as well. So to actually excel at multi tasking, he has to remain presentable in every walk of day today living. And fashion helps him to do exactly that.

 Today a normal male has to make sure that his everyday wear is comfortable and practical, his evening wear is smart, his college wear is funky, his board room dressing is power packed, his performance wear is sporty, his swim wear is trendy, his casual wear is chic, his outdoor wear is stylish, his wedding outfit is elegant and finally his accessories go well with his attire. If not fashion, what else can help him to achieve this goal? Men fashion is no longer confined to apparel. It has permeated into everything from accessories to body care, skincare, hair care, fragrance, accessories, jewelry, shoes, wallets and belts. Fashion helps in transforming the normal male into an alpha male.

Men's Fashion

Men’s Fashion Does Exist

 Designers, manufactures and brands are becoming conscious of men’s ever growing desire to look distinctive and making style statements wherever they go. Hence they are flooding the market with products that present innumerable choices to men. The growing market of male fashion industry is evidence that men’s fashion does not just exist but it is here to stay and end the rule of women’s fashion in the fashion industry.

Fashion Furoar- Translating my Furore for Fashion into Words

My name is Rishi Mehta and I’m a full time Blogger making a living from blogs where I write about Digital Photography, Latest Trends in Fashion & Extreme Adventures.  In 2002, I stumbled upon an article about ‘Blogging’. I didn’t realize it at that time but that moment changed my life. I’m an avid blogger and a passionate photographer. I love connecting with real people and helping others so that they develop their online skills. After years of research, I now have many resources and best practices at my disposal which I share here with my avid readers.

I own very little, and I make a living doing what I love. The truest freedom is of the mind, a conscious act to embrace the unknown. No, I’m not a millionaire, but I am living off a passive income online. I’m here to show you what I’ve learned. When I first started writing for my school paper back in high school, I was always at odds with our editor-in-chief because of a lack of flow in my writing style. It was then that I realized that writing a concise but explanatory introduction is an important skill all writers should develop regardless of what they are going to write.

Maintaining Online Blog Is As Good As Writing Offline Diaries

A lot of sites provide comments on a particular topic; other people take a step further by maintaining online diaries; some others perform far more by being a part of online content marketing community and helping create content on any particular specific or corporation. My main focus in this blog is towards the fashion industry, with all the style statements currently trending with crafty men and women apparels. Fashion sense is the one virtue that has been gifted to me naturally. So eventually writing about the same and sharing with world becomes a lot easier. Fashion Furoar will be a blog showcasing quite brief articles against some form of writings which are elaborate. Though some educational and fashion sites might be used as sources, I am inclined at giving my own interpretation of fashion. Fashion Furoar is my take on fashion through which I wish to create uproar in the hearts of people who don’t follow fashion and hopefully you all will like its spunky and funky presentation.

Blog posts are a very effective medium to convey a person’s thoughts and I am looking forward to share with all you people out there- my fashion “furore”- that is my interest for fashion accompanied with loads of enthusiasm. But what I like about blogging is that its two way communication and I expect you all to share your “furore” in the form of comments and communication.
