    Bespoke Jeans

    Who doesn’t love a comfortable denim jeans. Few months back I read in this blog about how these awesome jeans are custom tailored just for you by this company (Korra) in New Delhi. I ordered a pair of trouser for me for Rs.2900, I went through their online instructions for taking measurements, which was tough for me as I had zero idea on taking body measurements. Each Korra jean is made just for you after they receive your order by an individual tailor by hand.

While the Electric shaver gives a great shave, clean and soft, it has turned out to be more work. With the manual Razor shaving once in 3 days takes me about 3-4 minutes from the time of washing my face, applying cream and actual shaving.

    Shoulder bag or Men Purse

    Why are women have the benefit of carrying a bag with them?. As a man what am I supposed to carry, where do I put my large smartphone, keys, pen and other stuff? If I was wearing a suit I could stuff everything and the kitchen sink into one of the inner pockets. Right now I am imagining myself wearing one. A three-piece suit. And I am standing in front of thousands of people, going to begin a talk and I take out a crisply folded white paper from an inside pocket in a gentlemanly fashion. Wait… Even imagining this in “hot” Chennai I am sweltering. So that’s not going…
