Even after boys turn men and are all grown up, they don’t take the trouble of going shopping and picking their own clothes. It’s mostly their mom, wife or girlfriend who does it. This is one of the biggest mistakes Indian men make, when it comes to fashion. We bring you five more

Ironed jeans: “There are some things that don’t have to be prim and proper. Men need to note that they don’t need to iron their jeans,” says designer Varun Bahl.

Fitted, an obsession: “A lot of men wear fitted T-shirts that cling to their pot bellies, this is disgusting,” says designer Gaurav Gupta. Only if it is made of thick fabric or if you are fit, should you experiment with fitted garments, he suggests.

Flashy flashy: Men either don’t follow the trend at all or follow it blindly without knowing what suits them. “If your personality does not allow you to be bold and loud, refrain from the flashy belt buckles and watches,” adds Bahl. Also, avoid very loud accessories.

Inside out: Men need to realise the difference between printed boxers and shorts. “It is appalling to see men wear their boxers and roam around outside. They do not realise that it is an ‘under’ garment,” adds Gupta.

Trouser trouble: Odd shaped trousers is a common faux pas made by office going men. “They are ballooned near the thigh or hang near the bottom. The cut and fit has to be proper and they should pay attention to it,” says Gupta. Also, don’t wear your trousers so high up that the fabric clings around the crotch area.
