Casual Wear

Business casual :

                         There is no generally agreed definition of "business casual". One definition of business casual states that it includes khaki pants, slacks,as well as short-sleeved polo shirts and long-sleeved shirts.  Don’t let the word casual mislead you. 

                 You still need to look professional,a classic, clean cut, and put together look where a full suit is not required", which means slacks, khakis, or skirts, blouses, polo shirts, or shirts with collar but no necktie, some sweaters and closed-toe shoes.

Business Casuals

Smart casual :

                                Smart casual is an ambiguously-defined dress code that is generally a neat yet casual attire. Different localities, kinds of events, contexts, or cultures can have varying interpretations of the dress code and therefore the
designation of certain clothing pieces (such as jeans) as smart casual is disputed.

nahid speaks

Smart Casuals

Semi-casual :

                                              A button-front dress shirt, sweater, polo shirt, or sweater vest. Men may wear a necktie, but it is certainly not expected. Almost any kind of coat or hat may go with semi casual dress in inclement weather.

Informal Attire :

Informal attire is a mode of dress that is meant to be less formal than a tuxedo, while still providing more formal clothing than casual dress. The most common way in which a man can dress in informal attire is by wearing a two-piece suit. This suit consists of a jacket and pants that are made to match, typically in a dark color such as black, dark gray, or navy blue. 

                                             A vest can be worn with this as part of a three-piece suit, though it is not required the belt should match the pants and dark socks and shoes are usually worn with such clothing. This type of attire is usually finished with a long-sleeve shirt, usually a contrasting color such as a white shirt with a dark suit, and a tie that complements the complete outfit.

                                        Semi formal lies between formal and informal dress code and is often worn to events like dinner parties and weddings yet again differs between morning and evening. It is still a strict dress code so don’t be confused. here is a small guide to define you bit clearly,

   How to Dress for Daytime Semi Formal Events

                                                                                If it is a daytime event, stay away from looking too formal. The following are a few options to explore:

  •  Combine a pair of dark blue trousers with a light-colored blazer and a solid/colored patterned shirt.

  • Wear black leather shoes and if you want to top it off with a tie, keep it slim.

  • Though you can wear lavender suits, cream, beige or tan suits are better options for daytime events.

  • If keeping the suit and your dress shirt simple, add a dash of texture and color with your tie to make a statement.

  •  Add flair to your semi formal attire with pocket squares.

Menswear Designers : 

                                 Lets talk about the top 3 Designers who have ruled Menswear division :


3. Pierre Cardin :

                                                           Pierre Cardin. Cardin made his first impression on menswear in the 1960s, after having introduced a new, "modern" line of collarless suits with columnar silhouettes. These were wildly popular with designers and the public alike (think of the stuff The Beatles wore). His greatest legacy, however, was in being the first designer to embark on lifestyle licensing. 

                                               Cardin sold his name to people who would put it everything from calculators to toilets. His pioneering into the world licensing set a new precedent for what a menswear "brand" could mean, and many successful designers since have followed suit.

2. Armani :

                                            He developed a radically new look for suits by literally taking the stuffing out and making a more relaxed silhouette. The result was a very distinctive, widely popular, "Armani look" that defined one of the most significant eras in tailored men's clothing.

Giorgio Armani

1. Ralph Lauren : 

                                                        Why is Ralph Lauren our top choice? He's managed to create brands that exemplify classic style. He is by far the most globally-significant designer driven by menswear. He's delivered a stylish, quality product to consumers at every price point, from the high-end Purple Label to the most basic American Living. 

                                                        He is everything to everyone, but he somehow does it well. Speaking of which: Ralph Lauren also represents the triumph of the brand. Ultimately, fashion is transformational, and when Ralph Lifschitz became Ralph Lauren, he defined what that could mean for literally hundreds of millions of people. 

                                                          His designs represent an aspirational aesthetic that's somehow also democratic. Ralph Lauren is, to put it bluntly, the king of menswear.

1. Gieves & Hawkes : 

                                                                   I have chosen Gieves & Hawkes number 1(one) because they are both an important pioneering tailor and an important international brand. The house was founded at the beginning of the 18th Century, and gained its first Royal Warrant at the beginning of the 19th. They've made clothes for everyone from George III to Michael Jackson. 

                                 If you notice you'll see Jackson's military-influenced uniforms along with the military uniforms that inspired them. Hawkes was one of the the first British tailors to sell ready-to-wear (which was then called "Immediate Wear"), and today it's the bulk of the brand's business.
