5 SHIRTS YOUR CLOSET IS ASKING FOR

 

  1. The White Poplin: Do we even need to do this? Well if you say so. Easily the most versatile of the lot. Pairing them up is no fuss. Sweaters, cardigans, suits, trousers, denims…Yes!

 

  1. The Light Blue Poplin: Not as good as white but still makes it to the list (Just kidding. It’s as good as having a White, but let’s keep both). When we say Light blue, it’s neither royal nor pale blue. Just the classic light blue with white buttons. Share his best friends with the White poplin.

 

  1. The Bold Gingham: A chequered member. Gingham checks for the time when you want to aim for ‘Safe Experiments’. We leave the colours up to you. (P.S. We love Blues and Blacks)

 

  1. A weekender Black: When you want to take down Saturday on the rocks! Don’t miss out this flamboyant colour. Go formal with beige contrasts or play the dapper Gent with an All-Black attire!

 

  1. Tartan Flannel Shirt: Let’s take a moment to thank the Scots for this undisputed champion design. Your wardrobe needs some of these to help you decide during the fall. For the days when you don’t want to pull up your sweaters but you feel cold in a crew neck tee. A little tricky for Corporate honchos but Creatives have never recorded a failure with this one!

GUIDE TO SUMMER SUITS

Summer Suit Guide

Summer is here and so is the heat! Although summer months call for a more relaxed and laid back vibe, it can’t be translated into clothing as there is no excuse for unprofessional attire at workplaces. Every workplace has a different dress code, but if you want to make a statement it’s very important to stand out and what better way to do it than take the summer months as an excuse to get experimental and trendy with suits.

The thumb rule :

First and foremost it’s very important to know what to look for in a summer suit. When choosing a summer suit, the key is to opt for a lightweight fabric, preferably even light colored. Try to go for something unlined or even half lined. Though it will be less bulky and may provide less form, but will also provide ventilation and help to keep cool in this scorching heat. Another tip to remember is to give preference to loosely woven fabrics as they provide more air flow.

Summer suit colours, fabrics and trends :

Lightweight fabrics like linen and cotton are ideal for the summer although, a cotton linen blend would be more functional for workplace attire as linen has a tendency to get wrinkled easily. The most popularly worn colours to be worn in the season are Khaki, Beige, summery light Greys and baby Blues. For a semi formal attire, we would recommend the Seersucker suit for its fun playful stripes and airy feel. The chambray and fresco suits are recommended for a more formal look.

If you are open to experiments:

Feel like a lazy Sunday but have to go for a brunch? Try the new short suit trend for a semi formal, more relaxed look.

Want to go slightly bolder and make a statement? Experiment with a printed suit on a night out.

 Pezalli says:  Attention to detail is a must when it comes to being well dressed in a suit, so don’t forget to accessorize with statement accessories like pocket squares, bright socks, patterned ties, interesting watches, sunglasses and tie pins.

STYLING TIPS FOR CUSTOM WARDROBE

A well styled wardrobe can make or break your impression in the world; therefore a well styled and groomed man definitely attracts everyone. Men’s styling is mostly given lesser importance leaving the guys around with little knowledge about fashion, trends, what suits them and what not, what best style and cuts they can carry with their body type, etc. To break all these barriers, we bring bespoke clothing that focuses on customization, fit and colour coordination of men’s clothing.  At Pezalli, we work with customers to analyse many factors, from personality, colour suitability to body type analysis.

Let’s start with first things first. A simple shirt can be a work of art defining who you are and a bespoke shirt becomes the measure of a man, because it is cut to his exact measurements and perfected through several fittings. A bespoke shirt includes expert style consultations, advising in the choice of design details, fabrics and colours that best suit each individual’s physique, skin tone and lifestyle.

Let’s begin with the most staple element of a man’s wardrobe: A blue shirt. A plain blue shirt can work wonders if paired correctly depending upon the right colour coding. Choose the right blue that suits your skin tone. Muted skin men would go well with powder blue, while the darker complexions don pop colours like medium blue. Pair it up with brown pants for the contrasting look, or with grey trousers if you want some neutral balance or put on a navy trouser for the monochromatic scheme. A greyish-blue shirt with charcoal grey trousers or a light blue shirt with khaki trousers can be listed as safe experiments. Or else go for the traditional strong contrast of ‘white shirt-midnight blue trousers’ for the dapper look.

Not all custom wardrobes hold dynamism. Sophistication comes with the Neutral colour family. Dress in shades of Black, white, grey or beige. A light blue shirt when paired with a neutral coloured trouser makes it a perfect set up for the impeccable and stunning look.

For taller men, contrasting the top and bottom of the attire should come as a priority for the proportionate look. Go for a darker shade of blue and light coloured trousers that horizontally creates a line for colour breaking. Shorter and heavier men should go for the Matching technique. Simply match the colour and intensity of your blue ensemble to give yourself a thinner and taller look.

Matching and Contrasting are the principal guides to the ‘Correct Colour Coding.’ Pair up a dark blue tie with a pale blue shirt or a greyish-blue suit for that perfect colour harmony. Simple, elegant yet classic. Substitute a red or maroon tie in this getup, and you have a fairly decent colour contrast.

While we choose ‘the Blue’ as our top pick, we can’t ignore the strong contrasting elements such as navy suit and white shirt. Nor can we deny the classic black and white formal wear which never fails to complement all the skin tones and physiques.

Summers tend to be hard on everyone, therefore choose a fabric that is light. 100% cottons and linens work the best. Pastels of blue and yellow undoubtedly remain the colours of the season. And for all those formal occasions, a standard double breasted dark blue blazer and a two button are our favourites.
