My style
Style for me is synonymous with comfort. There was a time I would follow trends and style myself accordingly. But over the years because of extensive travel, my style has evolved. I choose comfort over following the latest fashion trend. However, comfort doesn’t mean I compromise on my look.

Must haves
A classic white shirt is a must. Next would be a smart blazer/jacket. I attend a lot of formal events, so a good collection of ties is important. Looking at a wristwatch is more sophisticated than a phone, so I recommend investing in one. And lastly, nothing finishes off the look like a good pair of lace-up shoes.

Prized possession
A $1,000 suit from Bagir. I got it a few years ago when I had to join my minister on a trip to USA for some meetings.

Style advice
Keep it simple, classic and comfortable.

Brand speak
Calvin Klein is one of my favourite brands.

Trend talk
I like the Indian Nehru jacket trend. They are stylish. I dislike too much of embellishment on footwear, as I prefer the classic look. Also, I find broad gold bracelets tacky.

Celeb style
George Clooney is the epitome of a well-groomed man.
