Abhishek Ganguly, MD, PUMA India, believes that suits should make you feel confident and happy.

First suit
“I got my first suit in my first year of my MBA at IIM, Lucknow. It was placement season for our summer internship and there I was, armed with a new navy suit from a reputed tailor in Hazratgunj. The suit instilled a feeling of seriousness and anticipation as it heralded my expectation of the formal, corporate sector. My notion of the ‘corporate world’ evolved when I entered the sportswear business and so did my idea of a suit. It is no longer the formal stereotyped version I was initiated into.”

Style code
“My current go-to style is business casual. For me, the idea of a suit is anything but formal or predictable. It is how one pairs the blazer with the trouser, shirt, tie, shoes and accessories. The combination shouldn’t be banal, safe and obvious. It can be striking, contrasting or even plaid but, of course, not garish.”

Comfort first
“Choosing a suit is serious business in terms of the effort, time and money. But you must get the choice and styling right. For me, a suit is not a serious piece of clothing. It should make one feel comfortable, confident and happy. My favourite is a grey checked slim-fit suit.”

Suits & sneakers
“Yes, but not with the regular fit, formal, black suit. A fitted blazer with contrast trousers, white shirt and a pair of sneakers is all you need for a sartorial look.”

Winning suit game
“Cristiano Ronaldo.”

When it comes to a suit…
“You can never go wrong with a little experimentation.”

Most experimental suit
“A light pink suit with high water trousers.”

Most expensive suit
“A pinstriped wool suit from Burberry.”
