Always on the cusp of a new adventure, the modern gentleman brings an edgy twist on classic style. No T-shirt is ever bare basics and the jacket is not just a cover up for the cold. To showcase our winter edit of dapper-meets-grunge menswear, we enlisted the help of Kamaljeet Rana. The model turned actor—he essays the role of Dushasan in Sony Entertainment’s Suryaputra Karn—was the perfect subject of our edgy casual moodboard, stopping blazing traffic on its tracks in our street style-inspired shoot. We created five modern trend-driven looks, combining a selection from Kamaljeet’s closet with the season’s key pieces from Shuffle and Shoemaker.
You may not be able to wear it to work, but an untucked shirt is a classic giveaway of laidback style. Finish with a military-inspired jacket—the devil here is in the details. Military overcoat, denim shirt, all Shuffle; jeans, model’s own; loafers, Shoemaker.
Feeling a back to school vibe? The urban teen spirit gets a grown up makeover with careful layering. Trending prints, colours, and knits come together in curated gentlemanly style. Camo-print jacket, jersey sweater, denim shirt, all Shuffle; skinny jeans, model’s own; watch, stylist’s own; lace-up driving shoes, Shoemaker.
An ode to biker style, the black and black leather and denim combo is best flaunted on open roads and long rides. Unless of course, you want to be the centre of attention. Knitted jumper, Shuffle; leather jacket, jeans, model’s own.
Flower power is all grit when worn in charcoal hues. Update your favourite summer tee for the chill with sporty outerwear and skinny black denims. Grey never looked hotter. Quilted jacket,floral T-shirt, Shuffle; jeans, model’s own; sneakers: stylist’s own.
A bomber seamlessly layered under a blazer leading to a beguiling mix of casual and businesslike. Add a graphic tee and you’re ready for every street style photographer in town. Layered blazer, printed T-shirt, all Shuffle; skinny denims, model’s own; lace-up driving shoes, Shoemaker.
