Yep, looks like Rahul Khanna sightings are turning out to be like ketchup off a bottle: when they come, they come all at once! No sooner had I proclaimed that his sightings are as rare as prudence in a Donald Trump speech did two come and that too within a space of few days. (We’re defo not complaining!)
First up was the unveiling of the Chandon x McLaren-Honda installation at Palladium, and true to form, he just concentrated on looking good without ruffling any feathers.
He opted for a navy suit that was tailored to absolute perfection, teaming it with a gorgeous pocket square and a pair of drooly double monks. That was simply masterful, Mr Khanna.
Next up was the launch event of luxury home décor e-commerce site CuroCarte, which saw him don a textured woollen three-piece suit from Canali’s Autumn/Winter’15 collection. Yes, yes, the fit of the suit was beyond reproach, but what bowled me over was the choice of a band-collar shirt to go with it — this was such an inspired move!
The band-collar shirt, with its relaxed but refined vibe, downplayed the stuffiness of the three-piece suit and provided a nice point of difference to the outfit.
A white linen pocket square folded into a neat four-point finished off the look.
Messr Khanna, my hat is well and truly off. And guys, if you happen to see this man out and about, watch closely and imitate.
By the way, are you all watching his TV show, The Mavericks, on NDTV Good Times? Whaaat! Why not? The final episode will air on Saturday at 10pm — do tune in. And you can catch the first and second episodes here and here respectively — you’re welcome :-)
