VDay Gift Guide Tailorman

Valentine’s Day has had a long and varied history dating back to the early 14th century. The holiday came to prominence when English poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote his poem ‘Parlement of Foules’ in 1382, commemorating the engagement of Richard II and Anne of Bohemia with romantic themes and mention of Valentine’s Day.

The centuries old tradition lives on even today where exchanging gifts is symbolic to showing someone special that they are an important part of our lives. As much as it’s about love and celebration, it can be a tricky situation to navigate. So we have put together Tailorman’s Valentine’s Day gift guide for the gentleman in your life.

Gadgets, toys and fine single malts are definitely safe bets while choosing gifts for your man, but you can also have plenty of options to go to for that combined style, elegance, taste and practicality. Here are four sophisticated options to add to the list:

Gift card: A Tailorman gift card will come in handy when your man has to update his wardrobe, and that happens a few times a year. 

Classic fashion books: For the fashion lover, a book about the Wardrobe of Cecil Beaton that shows an understanding of heritage and a level of knowledge about fashion from the past. Cecill Beaton had accounts with many Savile Row tailors; he bought his hats from Herbert Johnson and Lock & Co. and his shirts from Excello in New York. The clothes he bought from Lanz of Salzburg are now, along with other elements of his wardrobe, in the Metropolitan Museum, New York, and the V&A, London. Another treasure from the late Austrian architect Adolf Loos’s book, “Why a Man Should be Well-Dressed,” which originated as a series of essays published in the early 20th Century.

Accessories: If you are looking for a wealth of handsome accessories, choose from among Tailorman range of ties or pocket squares, with delicate textures and prints. In addition to it, are the rather unique must-have cufflinks fusing timeless style with a modern flair.

A made to measure experience: It’s magical how a set of  figures marked off of a measuring tape and spilled onto a paper pattern, becomes something that almost lives – a second skin which feels supremely comfortable. A made-to-measure experience is as the name signifies, an experience. If you wish to gift your man his first sartorial experience, head to Tailorman store nearest to you to let him discover the luxury of personalised clothing.

We hope that these four options have made it to your Valentine’s Day gifting repertoire. If possible, give him all four, since at Tailorman, we’re all about going the extra mile.

It’s safe to say that 2019 is turning out to be a year of self-expression. We live in a time where diversity, questioning of standards of aesthetics and beauty, sustainability, and buzzwords like genderless and ageless, are all being echoed on runways and off it, all of which point to a paradigm shift in  public opinion.

Bangalore might be famous as the IT hub of the country, but do not let the hard working people of this beautiful city fool you.

He’s not only investing his time and attention towards grooming but also redefining the norms of personal dressing through social media and blogging.
