The King's Crown and the Gentleman's Wardrobe
What can be common between a King’s crown and a gentleman’s wardrobe?
These two are worlds apart with seemingly nothing in common.
The crown for the king is a representation of regal office, power and authority. No monarch is complete without his crown, which is of immense importance in terms of value and significance.
For the gentleman, his wardrobe fulfils the function of a crown. He derives his powerful appearance, authority and confidence from his wardrobe.A good wardrobe, with well-fitting and quality clothes, represents his outer appearance and brings a distinct sophisticated aura to the owner. There is a sense of confidence and assurance when the person knows he is well dressed. The wardrobe equips the gentleman externally to take up the highest positions in life by presenting a faultless exterior.
Formal, Yet Elegant-The Dress Shirt
Men have been wearing shirts probably since the beginning of time, so why should a piece be written on the dress shirt?
This is because whenever we step out, our appearance represents us in non-verbal communication. At first glance, others form a subconscious opinion and we should be careful what that impression is. If the jacket is not worn, then it is the shirt that is speaking for us and without our realising it, our inner self and personality is revealed to the onlooker.
There can be no doubt about the fact that shirt are an indispensable component of an ensemble, unlike jackets or suits which are optional. This is regardless of season or occasion. The only article of clothing which can take the place of a shirt is a T-shirt or some item of ethnic clothing.

Its origin was in the late 19th century as it was worn by the British nobility at sporting events like shooting and rowing. Thus, the sports jacket was looked upon as a sign of luxury as it came to be associated with the affluent class of society who had expensive tastes and leisure activities.
With passage of time, there was a change in purpose and style. The practical aspect of this jacket began to be appreciated so a shift took place.Earlier it was worn solely for sporting occasions, later on it was favoured for casual events. This caused the sports jacket to become an intrinsic component of the wardrobe. Now it is worn regularly for a classic and elegant look.
