Personal style

My sense of style is smart casual and represents me. Style is not about what you wear or how you wear it. It goes deeper to resonate your personality, passions and state of mind. I tend to lean towards the understated and have a soft spot for vintage pieces as well as accessories inspired from polo.

Royalty in my blood

I don’t need to add a royal touch to my look; it’s part of my being. The rest of the world makes a big deal, but it’s a sense of style and elegance within us that we have grown up with. Simplicity has its own elegance and our traditional clothes have become famous worldwide, but for me, it’s the personality that reflects through.

My favourites

A bandhgala and my achkans that have been handed down for generations are my favourites. Some are simple; others historic and a few are of sentimental value to me.

Heirloom jewellery

I have my sarpaij and my grandfather’s polo buttons that I always end up wearing despite the many options. I guess it’s a simpler look. The earrings that my wife gifted me back in her college days are among my all-time favourite.

Mixing style and polo

I usually wear my perdy jacket, as it has a nice fit over my polo whites and a pair of good shoes. If it’s cold, I wear a shawl on my back.

Make a polo outfit stand out

I mix and match, depending on the occasion. If you want to make your outfit stand out, you should wear the most comfortable and basic polo attire available and then play like there is no tomorrow. It’s a style statement that no accessory can beat.

Travel essentials

My polo buttons and my bandhgala. And a nice pair of shoes. I am a fairly fuss-free traveller though and would be equally comfortable in the wilderness, where even basic necessities are sometimes difficult to come by.

Not a corporate guy

I am not a fan of any style. I don’t think it matters what I wear really as long as I am comfortable. Maybe the typical corporate look limits my movements a little so it’s often not my first preference.
