First and foremost what a privilege to be MissMalini’s first “Guy About Town” guest blogger, you are not confused! This is the same Danny Sura, who has been chartering his Bollywood adventures for MissMalini.com and I thought, why not share another side of me, and show you some of my favourite items from my wardrobe!
Who is your fashion icon – Amitabh Bachchan! Considering his age, he can carry off any look! Be it flowery loud shirts, to loud sunglasses, to wearing multi-coloured scarves. Rahul Khanna is another person, whom I admire for his dress sense.
Who is your favourite designer – Without a doubt, it has to be Britain’s own Ozwald Boateng. What I admire about him, is his trademark twist on the classic British tailoring style.
What is your personal style – Varies on the day and on my mood! Mostly, I like wearing clothes that are light and comfortable and give me room to breathe.
Your one fashion tip – If you feel comfortable and relaxed, wear it!
This is the first Ben Sherman item that I have bought. What attracted me to it, is that it’s well-fitted and most of all, very comfortable to wear. It’s a nice colour as well, and can be worn casually or with a pair of nice trousers, suiting any occasion.
Sorry folks but the Top Man and Next brands of clothing are only available in the UK! In this picture, I am sporting a Top Man low neck t-shirt and a Next hat. This low neck t-shirt is light, well-fitted and perfect to wear in the hot Mumbai heat. The Next hat that I am wearing, is something that I like to put on when wearing t-shirts; it brings out some of my meanness and sometimes I like having that “look with an attitude!”
I know what you are thinking… “Doesn’t Danny shop anywhere else besides Top Man and River Island?” I believe one doesn’t have to pay high prices, to look good and wear good clothes. You can make something simple look like a thousand pounds! The Top Man collared t-shirt shows off my broad shoulders, and just sits perfectly on me – one of the reasons why I bought it! The hat from River Island, is an accessory that I would not normally purchase, but it makes me stand out from the crowd, and not many people can carry this look off. I believe that I can!
My chosen outfit when I venture out into the night! This is a classy look, and I feel it brings out my “British” side perfectly. Again, I am wearing a Top Man t-shirt, and it’s one of my favourite brands of clothing. The River Island waistcoat is part of a 3 piece suit.
So when I am going off to dinner parties, or auditions that require me to come dressed in formals, I wear this grey suit, with a light grey shirt and black tie. The slim fit compliments my body shape perfectly, and I get the “oooohs and the aaahhs” from the opposite sex… which helps boost my confidence!
