Brothers: Style Guide

It is not everyday you get up early on  Saturday and go for the first show of Brothers and get a bit disappointed.  Anyways now lets get straight to the point of the costumes and style used throughout the movie by Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra, throughout the movie you will find casual clothing and some gym clothing. In this week style guide I will cover the casual clothing part which has close to five looks worth describing. In this style guide you will learn some stuff about denim shirt, sweatshirt and half sleeve t-shirt. Make sure you checkout the next style guide on the gym looks which is a detailed style guide on the clothing which you can wear to impress people at the gym, so that you seem fit and attractive at the same time. In the mean time if you feel you want to learn how I style myself with the help of style guide check out my Instagram profile.

Now I know there are many out here looking for the same tattoo but I may disappoint you this time as I have no idea about body tattoos. Akshay here wears a nice combination of t-shirt and trouser, but I would recommend you to tweak the look a little bit, you should rather pair this t-shirt with denim jeans it would look much better. I recently a t-shirt similar to this one but the difference was that it was a full sleeve t-shirt from Myntra. The website now operates via app so I am unable to provide you the link but you can get the same t-shirt via Myntra, it is manufactured by a company named Roadster. A dark blue denim would be a nice combination. The combination of t-shirt and trouser is basically used to portray a mix of 90’s and this generation fashion and thus it is used on akshay as a fashion fusion. As we have seen in the earlier guides, if you want to portray a character with strength you need to provide one major accessory i.e pendant, which here is a christ cross pendant. A watch is a top up on the look, the watch here is quite oldie choice I would recommend the new analog watches by Casio or Fossil, they have quite good collection of analog watches on Flipkart.

Now the whole concept of denim shirt is worthless if you dont have facial hair, the main reason why the costume designers want Akshay Kumar to have this shirt is that it make him blend in this generation fashion. Denim style is youth favourite and thus its in almost every movie Akshay seems to wear these to make him blend in the eyes of youth audience.  This look counts as a rugged look so when ever you want to play a bad boy role in life and have a badass life try this look, it wont disappoint you. You can even pull on this shirt over a white tee, remember not to use a plain tee instead go for tees which have plain colour but have something printed at the centre. This can be matched by a denim jeans, dark jeans to be precise but try to avoid a black denim jeans. Try a sneaker along with this look would blend quite well in this look.

Sidharth has very few look which quality the website standards, he is seen wearing sweatshirts all the time. Even he wanted to have a rugged look so he carried the trend of sweatshirt from his last movie Ek Villain. To have a good rugged look without tattoos he has used the combination of sweatshirt over a dark vest which in this case is the black one. Black vest are the best ones as they can have a good combination with almost any form of upper clothing. Instead of regular jeans he could have tried this look with a cargo it would have definitely looked better. In my opinion get yourself the cargo’s from Ek Villain Style guide, they will make you look more attractive in real life.

Now this is pretty different from what you see from Sidharth, I never expected him to try such variations with colours and its quite fascinating. Even though this particular sweat shirt looks dull to me but yeah it motivates you to try variations with colours on sweatshirt. I wont try this sweatshirt which is for sure but yes if you are following me on Instagram you will know which ones are the best sweatshirts to get in your wardrobe.

Now as portrayed in the movie this look is the teacher look, and I know this might turn down the mood of my readers, obviously no one wants a teacher look but according to me its more of formal office look. Like you get to see this clothing to show that the person is office person, a plain formal shirt, trouser along with a black/brown belt,formal shoes and mens office bags. It is believed that every stylish men has a reversible black/brown belt as having two belts for colours is not the style of men.

The style guide seems incomplete without any formal looks so here is a very simple formal look which has a plain formal shirt and matching blazer and trouser along with black formal shoes. If you are a regular reader I dont think decoding this look will be difficult for you, these looks are present in almost every style guide I decode.
