Jimmy Mistry, Chairman, Della, on his first suit and how it’s all about fit, not fashion names.

My first suit
“I was in school and I had a fancy blue blazer with golden buttons. I remember in Indore, going store-to-store with a limited budget, sanctioned by my father, to buy a jacket. I still cherish this memory because that blue blazer was like a dream come true at the time.”

Best buy
“The second instance was when I heard about Armani-clad corporate honchos in Milan. Buying my Armani suit years ago was something that I cherish. I wore that suit practically everywhere and loved to flaunt it.”

Thread count
“I don’t hoard things. I believe in using things and getting rid of whatever I don’t require. So, I don’t have a large collection, but I do have my 5-6 suits that I wear often. The minute I get a new one, I discard something old.”

Go-to suit
“My striped blue suit. It’s got a good cut and fit. A suit should not look like a gunny bag put around your neck. The right cut flatters your body. That’s more important than the brand.”

Name game
“I like something that stands out from the crowd. If I like the fabric and the cut, I don’t really care if it’s Zara, Armani or Canali. A white jacket from Zara caught my eye once and people think it’s a branded top-end jacket.”

Style tip
“You should be well dressed for any occasion — that’s super important to me.”
