Androgyny with Suit Fullstop

February 17, 2017

I am always fascinated by the structured make of a double-breasted ebony tuxedo. What really makes and breaks a formal suit is its stitch and fit. If the crease is too fitted or the stitch too elaborately done, it gives off the mannerism a formal suit demands, making the wearer look unfit and out of form. I might be a female, but I am one of those females who absolutely adorn befriending the Androgyny ways of style. Speaking about which, I have tried many a times to meet a brand or boutique that can magnify the feminine silhouette of me, while keeping up with the manly element of a tuxedo. Until now, I have been doped by many local boutiques who have failed in producing a suit that matches my expectations. Suit Fullstop is an e-commerce label that excels in every aspect of suiting up. Although it is a men’s trendsetting brand, the team did listen to my request on stitching up a tuxedo that really reflects my identity and gives me a great fit. So in case you’ve been wondering how an e-commerce boutique match your requirement of a designer formal suit, then you’ll be overwhelmed to know that the label does a fantastic job in delivering what we ask for. Worth mentioning that they have some physical stores in the country, established, as well! And to make the experience more unique and personal, Suit Fullstop offers ready-to-wear as well as customised formal suits to its customers. How does it work? Not only do they offer altering post delivery, their returns are easy to follow as well. But given their dedication towards delivering customisation that is up to the mark, their sure are any chances of needing any of the edits. Did I mention that they offer ‘Renting’ facility …

With the transition from warm weather to cooler winds is taking place in Northern India, the effect is evident on our wardrobes as well! Now is the time to bring out light jackets and denims out of our bunks to strike AW’16 in style. John Players by ITC is not just about good dressing, but they thrive to bring out menswear styles for the Indian market as well. Celebrating the evergreen trend of blue JEANS, John Players has introduced a diverse collection of Jeans that promise much more than just the distressed style. Inspired by global fashion, JOHN PLAYERS JEANS has introduced denim styles that will ante up a man’s style, effortlessly. With elements of colours like coral orange, gold moss, sour green and deep teal against Indigo Denims, the contrast can be tagged along as the coolest take on this rich menswear trend. So what can you expect from JOHN PLAYERS JEANS AW 2016 Collection? Patch on/off over embellishments, raw, distressed, laser printed and bleached impacts on denims that widely takes over the line. Hint of Scottish checks and Deep Navys can also be seen on some of the designs. We, the bloggers, too tried our hands on Patch-mixing techniques and splatter techniques to bring a fresh change of style to regular denims for men. The one thing that I personally derived out of this collection is the fact that their is a lot that can be experimented with with basic menswear trends; internationally and nationally. With John Players Jeans AW 2016 line I definitely look up to a fresh change in the way how men perceive style. Breaking the norm that prints and colour is a feminine thing, bold colour hues against Indian Motifs is charging up the way a man can dress up. What’s versatile about this collection …

While our Indian Fashion Runway is still catching up on menswear drama, the retail brands are pushing forward a whole new anti-stereotype propaganda on fashion for men! So much so, that the game is just not about styling it right, but actually breaking free of the memo that every man has been taught under the tagline of ‘Manly way of dressing up’ and engaging in the wave with the best foot (note : denims) forward. Now that women have already trended hardcore for a ‘boyfriend jeans’ on the social network, it is time for men to shed the basic denims off for something more candid. John Players is one of those few fashion brands that have been evolving constantly on menswear category, keeping abreast with the latest trend forecasts of the world.   And this time of the year, they are playing unscripted to promote denims as the trendsetter of the summer season. Well, you’d anticipate that all you’ll get to see in the collection will be just the denims with maybe some washed acidic affect or those regular ripped fabric threads giving the whole *macho* vibe to the wearer. NOPE! You will definitely see hints of the regulars, but John Players has taken another bold step in presenting a denims collection for men which is designed on laser printing technology, holds uni-sexual patterns and patches adding zeal to the comfort and a varied range of colour palette for those who are bored of the regular denims affair. Popularly known as JPJ, a.k.a. John Players Jeans not only caters to the trend cravings of a fashionista, but has also been designed keeping in mind the comfort that one seeks during the hot season. Hashtagged #JPJSS16 on the social network, John Players Jeans collection has been crafted with experimental washes, contemporary fits …

#PLAYUPSTYLE WITH WINTER WEAR FROM JOHN PLAYERS It is routine for our Earth to revolve around the Sun that brings the change of season. But for us it is time to have a change of wardrobe! To help us revamp our everyday wear we have decided to explore the John Players Autumn Winter Collection. It is a promising range of casual, formal and party wear. Taking in its ambit a number of youthful prints, animated hues apart from the indigo denims, the collection is served with edgy styling matching global conventions. The spotlight of the 2015 AW Collection of John Players is on the peppy prints! Some of the designs are drawn from playing cards based theme called the Jack of Hearts! It simply means our shirts, tees and sweaters will be christened with snazzy numeric graphics and monograms. Moreover, they are offering floral printed, stylized shirts apart from some tribal designs. They bring us different colour palettes for different ranges. For the modern casual wear there is a mix of classic yet eccentric shades. There is an interplay of chesterfield green, red, black and blue, aptly toned down by the earthy tones of beige. Whereas the fashion Playlist range has got vibrant, quirky hues like pepper yellow, sour lime and spicy orange on our tees and trousers. These will be endowed with tribal patterns and lively bird impressions to spice up the festive season. With respect to the requirements of the office gentry we noticed the Informalist and GlobeTrotter range. We can easily make different ensembles out of suits, bandh galas, outer wear and slim fit jackets that this collection offers. We love the detailing of contrast colour tapes and geometrical pattern on these smart formals. These are sure to make the office life a tad bit more exhilarating! …
