“I Think Indian Men Have To Stop Tucking Things Into Their Pants” Randeep Hooda Talks Style
We spoke to Randeep Hooda to ask him for some tips that men could use to improve their sense of personal style.
■ Fashion is something that should complement you. It should make you feel cooler when you wear it, or look at yourself. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the trending thing.
■ You can never go wrong with classics, but you have got to break out every now and then.
■ My last fashion purchase was a satchel from Ralph Lauren.
■ Today, the boundaries of men and women in terms of fashion have blurred a little. I think men can wear a lot of things without looking too other-worldly, and there are a lot of men who do.
■ I think there are many men I find stylish, from George Clooney to Arjun Rampal. Salman Khan is very funky, and Shah Rukh is stylish as well.
■ Besides good underwear, a man should have a good pair of jeans that fits well, a comfortable pair of shoes and definitely some great T-shirts. I am more of a T-shirt kind of guy. High street brands like Splash always have a good range on offer.
■ When it comes to grooming, it is better to be rough around the edges. If you look too groomed, you look too clean. My mother had told me when I was very young: “Who has washed a lion’s face?” and it’s held me in good stead.
■ I think Indian men have to stop tucking things in their pants.
■ For a formal occasion, a man should wear a well fitted black suit. You can never go wrong with black.
