The tuxedo guide

The name Bond. James Bond personates the ultimate man for many till date. The credit obviously goes to the deadly combination of action, refined taste and the elegant tuxedo look adding the seductive charm to the character.

tuxedo guide

Tuxedo is in vogue from more than hundred years and evolved itself as an icon of male elegance. It is almost beyond belief that such a regulated and formal dress code has managed to withstand the informal dressing. Tuxedo popularly known as black tie and dinner jacket, requires the knowledge of the rules to pull off the look successfully. One should wear a self tied bow not a long neck tie or pre-tied bow with a tuxedo and else you may end up looking like a waiter rather than a gentleman.

The fabric of the bow should match with that of the lapels and stripes of the pants but you can also go for a velvet bow tie if you are going to an informal event. Tuxedo preferably should only have one button when in single breasted form. You can wear a double-breasted dinner suit but be cautious because if you undo a double-breasted jacket, it hangs and looks awful. Ideally, the jacket should have a closed back with no vents at all but if you’re going to have vents, choose side vents. A centre vent will blow open and show your shirt, which looks cluttered.

tuxedo guide

The shirt that accompanies a tuxedo should always be plain white necessarily not a pleated one. Although pleated shirts are more traditional, but a man looks best in a button up shirt with a classic spread collar shirt and French cuffs. The attire is complimented with a cummerbund or a waistcoat to conceal the bit of white shirting fabric between your jacket button and waistband. Wearing a waistcoat can look really nice and is a good alternative to the cummerbund giving you a much smarter look.

tuxedo guide

 

If you are getting confused about the pocket square then white linen is ideal, however, you can also go for silk scarf to add on sophistication. Trousers of the dinner suit should completely match the jacket, that means, the fabric should be the same. Pants should be high-waist and should not have any belt loops. Also front pleats should be avoided in the bottoms.

tuxedo guide

Club your tuxedo with black polished front cap toe shoes and avoid wearing loafers. You can also wear a formal pump – court shoe but for the attitude must be as that of bond.

Falling in love is one thing but it is a crime to match one’s tuxedo or associated accessories with the attire of his date.  Get her the moon or the stars of the galaxy but don’t fall in trap of your lady and murder the classiness of your tuxedo complimenting her dress.  The magic begins the moment you put on this upper-class attire, metamorphosing a boy into a man, and elevating a man into a gentleman. It has been rightly said, “Nature created men unequally, tuxedos were invented to even the score.”

Oscars Academy Awards 2016

Ocscars Academy Awards 2016

The Academy Awards are always the point of discussion at this time of the year. Some of the greatest actors, film-stars, directors, producers and some of the best dresses make this event even brighter and classier with their mark.

The 88th Academy Awards have been slayed at by so many well-dressed celebrities that we can’t list all of them here. However, some of the best dressed ladies had to be Olivia Wilde, Priyanka Chopra, Jennifer Lawrence, Margot Robbie, Charlize Theron and so many more.

Apart from the showering of dresses from heaven, this year’s Oscars marked history with some of the greatest wins. Leonardo Dicaprio finally took the statuette home after a much anticipated wait of 6 years for the movie ‘The Revenant’. The director of same movie, Alejandro Gonzalez won the award for best director second time in a row. This hasn’t happened on the event since 1950!

Other wins for the 88th Academy Awards are:

Spotlight- Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay

Brie Larson- Best Actress for Room

Writing’s on the wall- Best Original Song

Mark Rylance- Best Supporting Actor for Bridge of Spies

Alicia Vikander- Best Supporting Actress for The Danish Girl

The Hateful Eight- Best Original Music Score

A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness: Best Documentary Short Subject

Among others, one of the biggest highlights was the bittersweet moment when Sylvester Stallone lost the Best Supporting Actor to Mark Rylance. Another one being the moving speech by Sam Smith for calling attention to the LGBT community. Leonardo Dicaprio’s Speech calling out to the dangers of climate change and Lady Gaga’s chilling performance of ‘Till it Happens to You’.

 

Chris Rock really did rock the Oscars with the greatest of ever monologues a host could have ever given. Addressing the issue of #Oscarssowhite, Chris Rock made some really good points that need to be given a thought or two.

One of the things that made us happy was the presence of Priyanka Chopra at the Oscars looking like a queen. Being the best dressed at some of the Latest Fashion shows in India, the IIFA awards 2016, and some great fashion events in India, the multi-talented celebrity came yet again as one of the best dressed to  the 88th Academy Awards.

All things considered, the 88th Academy Awards was a huge success with some of the greatest winners who addressed some of the much needed issues. We still hope that maybe next time, the nominated cast will be a little bit more diverse and people would really stop being so racist.
