PEZALLI STYLE COMMANDMENTS

dsc_0778

It’s been quite a while since we have documented our fanatics for tailored clothing. Bespoke is as subtle and debonair as it sounds. An experience to the world of impeccability and savoring the refined taste need absolute patience and trust.

Here, we chalk down the philosophies we abide by at Pezalli while we constantly practice the skill of perfection: Bespoke Tailoring.  

 

  •  We are passionate about quality, just like an obstinate child sitting in front of a toy shop. Everyone should invest more in quality clothing. It’s the only reason to care about craft and artisanal skills.

  • Fit is the most important thing in tailored clothing. If you can’t afford a bespoke suit or shirt, at least spend a little more to get it altered. But the tailoring aficionados find it always better to go bespoke rather than shelling out a bomb and then trying to fit in.”

  • It is the attention to detail and the joy of aesthetics that forms the emotional dimension of bespoke pieces. Impeccably tailored and elegantly styled clothes can make that lasting impression about one’s personality.

  • Always travel with a white poplin (or oxford) shirt and navy smart-fit trousers.

  • Rely on your own judgment for clothing. Until a certified style coach is detoxing your closet, you needn’t listen to every chunk of the people around. Fight for your favorites but don’t get buried too deep with your limited knowledge. If a powder blue is replaced by a navy, don’t sulk over it.

  • “Style is relative. It’s hard to admit, but it’s true. If everyone you know dressed just like you, you’d want to dress differently.”

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!

 

 

 

 

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.

WAYS TO WEAR A BLACK SHIRT

Just like LBD (little black dress) is a staple outfit in any well-dressed woman’s wardrobe, a crisp black shirt is a must-have piece of clothing for a well-groomed man. There are always ways to wearing a black shirt and keep a few things in mind on how to pair it and with what.

The key to wearing a black shirt is ideally to team it with a different-colored, preferably, a light-colored jacket, so that there is good contrast. Though for some, pulling off black on black works wonders, not all can carry that well. So, it is best to keep your skin color in mind too before going all black.

Black is a classic and prestigious color and symbolize strength and authority. Though it can possibly match up with almost any color, but maybe, too much of contrast at times gives it an aggressive color scheme.Matchbox 73449

Before deciding to wear a black shirt, it is important to remember that complexion of a person also matters a lot. Though any man can wear a black shirt, but only men with dark hair and anywhere from medium to darker colored skin tone can pull it off well. It is quite simple – the color is not overwhelming on the person and does not create a stark contrast.

Yet another thing to keep in check is to balance the contrast in case you have a fair complexion. For, a black shirt may make your face stand out due to the sharp contrast.

It is best to try and avoid wearing a black shirt with navy-colored trousers or anything with black. Try and tone down the contrast with a light tan colored trouser or jacket or a grey jacket or trousers.

Last but not the least, be a little careful with black and don’t get the pairing up with trousers or jackets wrong.
