  1. Just a couple of weeks ago, we got one of the strangest and hilarious news story - a channel in Egypt literally interviewed the coronavirus. Back then, I was so disappointed that any Indian channel didn't do it first since something like that is so on-brand for our country. But of course, India might disappoint me in so many ways, at least it came through when it comes to theatrics surrounding the pandemic. Tamil Nadu police made a cop wear a coronavirus helmet to raise awareness about the importance of staying home during the lockdown. You can't make this shit up. Tamil Nadu: Police in Chennai has been creating awareness among the people about the importance of them staying at home amid #CoronavirusLockdown by making a police personnel wear a helmet designed to look like Coronavirus. The helmet has been designed by a local artist Gowtham. pic.twitter.com/LlxrUYfihX — ANI (@ANI) March 28, 2020 He looks more like an alien than a virus, tbh. Inspector Rajesh Babu says, "We had been talking to public. But awareness among them is very less. So we thought of doing something different. We designed a helmet that looks like coronavirus. We thought of doing something which will scare the people and make them stay at home." https://t.co/dG3NCWpUPz pic.twitter.com/wwbkhRrinT — ANI (@ANI) March 28, 2020 This is such a tricky situation, I do think this is more hilarious than scary but I also want to acknowledge the police brutality happening all over the country at the moment. Not all cops are lathi charging innocent people who have no option but to step out for a few essentials and not all cops are making vendors and shopkeepers pay them 'hafta' and kharcha paani to do their business, but there needs to be accountability as well. This is a time for everyone to work together to their part in stopping this virus from spreading and a few people's selfishness can have a lot of repercussions. Okay, my inner conflict monologue is done and coming back to the virus helmet, there's another very valid concern as put forward by someone in the replies. It can have the exact opposite effect. It won't scare them. They will instead laugh and come out of their home to see this. — Sumit (@Kaniskmumbai) March 28, 2020 There's appreciation. Good creativity... and great thing is that you are worried abt public and doing a good job.. — POONAM ARORA (@capoonamarora) March 28, 2020 Yep. They are getting so creative with this lmao https://t.co/nrD3COs7Nm — Pruthaâ¡ (@pruthakadu) March 28, 2020 Definitely. ð¤£ð¤£ A+ for the effort. https://t.co/7hXQolQq2f — Akshath (@mangalore_man) March 28, 2020 Hmm. That is one creative way of spreading awareness about #coronavirus and asking people to stay at home during the #21daylockdown. #StayHomeStaySafe https://t.co/1eFnERGE0t — Bhaskar Sarma (@Bhaskar__Sarma) March 28, 2020 Sure. This is why I love Chennai and the people there! https://t.co/kKe0eQiHdq — notthatpk (@sinhapk) March 28, 2020 Maybe both? Not sure whether to laugh or cry 𥺠https://t.co/BheDUeapun — Tushar Gugnani (@TusharGugnani) March 28, 2020 It's terrifying. God, even I am scared of that. https://t.co/jvwdkoG4yN — Garima Garg (@garimagarg_) March 28, 2020 View the full article
  2. When it comes to fashion, having a personal sense of style is of utmost importance. Some things that work for some men may not work for you - the reason being your body type and what it demands. Dressing for your body type is not about restricting your fashion choices but about investing in the right ones. Here is a style guide for men that will help you know what flatters your body type and what doesn't. Trust us, it makes the biggest impact if you wear the right clothes. To begin with, men have a total of four major body shapes. These are - rectangle, triangle, inverted triangle and oval. These shapes determine what looks good on you and what doesn't. __ECOMLOOKS__308__ __ECOMLOOKS__309__ __ECOMLOOKS__310__ __ECOMLOOKS__311__ Explore More View the full article
  3. Ask any well-dressed man and bona fide fashion icon worth their salt, what is that one piece of menswear that all men should have in their closet, and the answer will be a suit of some sort. Now, whether you go for a bandhgala suit or a European tuxedo with a shawl collar, all of them will suggest that you go for a well-tailored, bespoke suit. © Instagram/sshomme Sandeep & Sarah Gonsalves, the designer duo behind one of India's most prominent bespoke menswear designers, Sarah & Sandeep, are perhaps perfectly suited (no pun intended) to explain what makes bespoke suits so appealing. © Sarah & Sandeep Having dressed the finest actors of our generation, along with several other stalwarts from various other fields in some of the most sublime suits we have seen in the last decade or so, Sandeep Gonsalves has truly made a mark for the label. Just take a look at their clientele and you'll get an idea why, for India's elite, contemporary and luxury bespoke suiting has become synonymous with Sarah & Sandeep. © Instagram/sandeepmxg From stalwart actors like Shahid Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana, to business tycoons like Mazahir Mandasaurwala & Akash Ambani, Sarah & Sandeep have truly dressed the who's who of India. View this post on Instagram Akash Ambani suited up in the Burgundy Three Piece Tuxedo paired with vintage bow tie precisely crafted and designed by Sarah and Sandeep Gonsalves for their wedding festivities at Winter Wonderland in St. Moritz. #SSHOMME #SarahSandeep #AkashAmbani #MukeshAmbani #NitaAmbani #ambaniwedding #shlokamehta #AkuStoleTheShlo #ambani #ishaambani #ceremonial #bespoke #tuxedo #akustoletheshlo A post shared by SARAH & SANDEEP (@sshomme) on Jul 18, 2019 at 6:42am PDT We sat down for a brief chat with Sandeep Gonsalves, talking about the Indian fashion scene, what does the richest family in India look for exactly when getting their suits made, and how bespoke clothes, maketh the man. Edited Excerpts: © Sarah & Sandeep As a member of the Indian Fashion industry, how would you say has the industry grown over the years? It is my belief that the Indian fashion industry is currently at its peak, creatively speaking. The more informed designers are, the more they can evolve their imagination and that is exactly what Indian designers are working towards. There is also a visible amalgamation of traditionalist culture and contemporary new-age design that incorporates some design techniques that have never been seen before and I appreciate this direction that Indian fashion is moving toward. © Instagram/sshomme You created bespoke suits for some of the ceremonies for Akash Ambani's wedding. Tell us something about that, what were their requirements, how was the fitting process? The experience was really something special and we are really impressed with the way the styles turned out. For the winter wonderland themed occasion in St. Moritz, Switzerland, we created a bespoke sea-green checked suit with a custom cashmere turtleneck. We also crafted a kurta with a specially designed embroidery pattern with Akash and Shloka's initials. That is probably the first time we had to innovate with personalized embroidery but we wanted it to be wearable art and it came together beautifully. View this post on Instagram Akash Ambani reflects sheer grandeur in a bespoke Grey Houndstooth Tuxedo designed by co-founders Sarah and Sandeep Gonsalves for Isha Ambani's engagement at Lake Como. #SSHOMME #SarahAndSandeep #AkashAmbani #IshaAmbani #mukeshambani #ishaambaniengagement #LakeComo #bespoke #tuxedo #ceremonial #NitaAmbani #shlokamehta A post shared by SARAH & SANDEEP (@sshomme) on Jul 18, 2019 at 6:34am PDT As artists who are also invested in the commercial side of things, did the fact that you were catering to the Ambanis, ever put pressure on you? I think that it can get overwhelming only if the client's vision is not matching with the vision of the designer but Akash is always on the same page so it is always a great experience when designing for him. View this post on Instagram Designers Sarah and Sandeep Gonsalves manifest the art of encapsulating a personalised embroidery pattern by using the initials of the groom Akash Ambani and the bride Shloka Mehta. It's an ode to their journey of crafting spectacular garments with the constant need of innovation and creativity. #SSHOMME #SarahandSandeep #AkashAmbani #ShlokaMehta #akustoletheshlo #ambaniwedding #MensFashion A post shared by SARAH & SANDEEP (@sshomme) on Mar 22, 2019 at 6:15am PDT We've often seen Ayushmann Khurrana in your creations. What is it that catches his eye? Is there anything specific that he asks for? It has been a pleasure having Ayushmann Khurrana wear our creations over the years. It is always a great experience working with his stylist extraordinaire, Isha Bhansali. The synergy is always perfect and her vision for our looks on Ayushmann is always on point. Most of the creations that are selected for him are unique well-tailored western styles that have unique colour variations and patterns. © Instagram/sshomme What direction do you see the Indian fashion industry taking? I expect the Indian fashion industry to move toward a more future-forward approach in the coming years. Designers are moving towards a more contemporary approach towards fashion design and they are looking to experiment with minimalistic, clean designs that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also extremely functional. What is that one current trend that we see today on the ramp, that has the potential of making it big among common, regular people in the future? Experimental cuts on hems are by far the best example of a mass trend that has originated from the ramp. © Instagram/sshomme What creative and commercial directions do you envision? Creatively, I like to keep working on improving my designs of both western and Indian styles. I would like to work towards imagining the most contemporary and clean ensembles that are not only functional but truly exhilarating to look at. I think Sarah & I have evolved drastically in the past few years and we will always attempt to create the most unique menswear styles possible. From a commercial perspective, we plan to expand our retail presence and turn the store into a one-stop destination for formal menswear solutions. Our goal has always been to provide the best possible quality of garments, shoes and accessories and we are devising new ways to make the in-store experience for our clients simply incredible. Just to give you an example, we have just recently invested in fragrancing the entire flagship store. © Instagram/sshomme Your creations tend to be very fluid and an amalgamation of classic silhouettes with contemporary and modern aesthetics. Where do you draw your inspiration from? I think we draw most of our inspiration from what we perceive as contemporary art and we add our touch of what may be a future-forward version of the same. Sometimes it may lead to us experimenting with the silhouettes whilst using pure Australian merino wool, and sometimes we may come up with a sherwani that displays the strategic use of beadwork. What is that one trend in men's fashion that you don't like, or don't agree with? I am not particularly a fan of over-accessorizing an ensemble just for the sake of it. I feel that menswear styles should be simple, clean and minimal. One should pick maybe one or two accessories that compliment the look fashionably instead of adding as many accessories as possible. © Instagram/sshomme How do you think the industry as a whole is dealing with this issue of sustainable and “eco-friendly” fashion? I feel that every successful fashion designer in India has considered going toward a sustainable direction by now. And that in itself is a great example of the power an informed consumer can have in shaping the future of designer retail. We at Sarah & Sandeep have also been working towards reducing our carbon footprint. For instance, our collaboration with Carlo Barbera comprised of business suits that were made using biodegradable Bemberg lining and instead of fusing, we turned towards only full or half-canvassed suits to reduce the use of polyester to a bare minimum. © Instagram/sshomme What are your views on the debate around Maximalism vis-a-vis Minimalism? I think Sarah & I have been promoting the concept of minimalism in fashion design since our brand's inception back in 2012. We do not argue against maximalism but we believe that minimal design is future-forward and as clients evolve, they care more about the quality of the fabric and less about the quantity of hand-work on it. © Filmfare In spite of its clear advantages and finesse, people tend to go for readymade suits over bespoke made and tailored suits. How do we change this? How can we make tailored suits more accessible for the masses? Traditional tailoring is not the way forward if you are looking to make tailored suits more accessible to the masses. In order to do so, we will have to rely on technology and some AI applications that have recently come out that considerably cut down the timeline for manufacturing a tailored suit. If the demand for instantly created tailored suits rises to a certain point, I can see the value in that business model. © Instagram/sshomme Tell us something about your creative process. My creative process is all about gathering information and using my imagination to depict what I can relate to. Sarah & I also tend to keep in mind trends and customer feedback, to ensure that the functionality of every garment is well thought of. Where do you think men's fashion in India is heading? Men's fashion in India is evolving spectacularly and with great promise. The category has seen a lot of growth in the past few years and we can see a bright future ahead. I see the growth shifting from workplace clothing to ceremonial clothing which would be great for Sarah & Sandeep because we are a designer label at the end of the day and most of our offerings are for special occasions. Our hope is that luxury menswear in India is driven by innovation and we expect to be at the forefront of that effort. © Instagram/sshomme Three words you'd use to describe your signature style. Clean, Contemporary, Geometric What is your favourite historical era in terms of menswear, and why? The 1960s was a great era of menswear to look back at because that is when experimental silhouettes came into play. Do you think traditional Indian menswear is evolving? Yes, of course. It will continue to evolve as men's tastes become more individualistic and personalized. © Instagram/sshomme One celebrity who can teach everyone else a lesson or two on how to pull off the Indian aesthetic elegantly, when it comes to menswear. Shahid Kapoor pulls off the Indian aesthetic beautifully. One thing men should never do while dressing up in traditional Indian wear. Overembellishment with accessories is not something I recommend to Sarah & Sandeep grooms. © Instagram/sshomme One traditional Indian menswear item you believe every Indian man should have in his wardrobe, and why. I think a classic bandhgala in a unique colour is an absolute necessity. It's the most versatile Indian style I can think of that can also be used for occasions that call for western wear. Men's fashion in India slipped through the cracks of the mainstream fashion scene and has stayed under the radar for far too long. Take a look at any fashion event - fashion weeks, fashion shows et all, and you'll see how in most of them, menswear seems to be an afterthought. Furthermore, shows focusing exclusively on menswear are a rarity. As a series, Draping Indian Men is an earnest attempt to celebrate the changing phase of men's fashion in India, and those pioneering geniuses who have come to define our sartorial sensibilities View the full article
  4. For a batsman who has been in scintillating form in the ongoing limited-overs series against the West Indies, Virat Kohli couldn't do much in the 2nd One-Day International (ODI) at Visakhapatnam. On a day, where his teammates accumulated loads of runs, the Indian captain was dismissed for a golden duck. But, despite missing out, Kohli didn't fail to entertain cricket fans. The 2nd ODI saw the likes of Rohit Sharma (159) and KL Rahul (102) in superlative form as they added 227 runs for the first wicket. But, the carnage wasn't restricted to the Indian openers. Following their dismissals, Shreyas Iyer (53) and Rishabh Pant (39) upped the ante with some quickfire knocks. On the second delivery of the 48th over, Iyer smashed Keemo Paul for a single and raised his bat in celebration, assuming he had reached his fifty. However, the right-hander was still one run away from his half-century - something he eventually realised. As he raised his bat, everyone in the Indian dressing room got up to inform Iyer about his premature celebration. Shreyas Iyer raises his bat on 49 Watch “Iyer” on #Vimeo https://t.co/ujUkFXAYo2 — Sanjeev kumar (@SanjSam33) December 18, 2019 Amongst all, Kohli stood out giggling over the hilarious incident while signalling Iyer to stop the early celebration. The video of the entire episode has taken social media by storm with the fans seemingly enjoying Kohli's reaction. Trailing 1-0 in the three-match series, Team India put up a strong batting performance in Vizag. Rohit emerged as the top run-scorer on the back of a blistering knock, while Rahul played a supporting role with his brilliant hundred. Chasing a total of 387 runs, the Windies brigade was undone by Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami who bagged three wickets apiece. View the full article
  5. The Indian cricket team was made to look like one of those below average teams against Kieron Pollard's West Indies side in the second T20I match at the Greenfields Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. After winning the toss, Pollard decided to bowl first and despite getting a surprising beating at the hands of Shivam Dube in the first half of India's batting innings, were able to make amendments. Expertly gauging the changing pitch conditions with time, Pollard's bowlers were able to limit India's total to a sub-par 170. How do you feel about us chasing this? #IndvWI #ItsOurGame #MenInMaroon pic.twitter.com/VLSWECTtRB — Windies Cricket (@windiescricket) December 8, 2019 And thanks to some awful fielding by the Men in Blue, it was easier than expected for the Windies to win the second match and tie the series at 1-1. Having said that, there was this brief moment in the early moments of India's bowling attack which had a greater significance in the chemistry of Team India which goes beyond the final result of one match. After a couple of overs by Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, skipper Virat Kohli walked to the middle of the field to have a brief meeting with Rishabh Pant and Rohit Sharma. Evidently, Kohli had made up his mind to give Chahar a small break from the bowling rotation and introduce Washington Sundar into the attack. © Reuters But this is where Sharma stepped in and opined that it would be for the best to let Chahar bowl one more over because ending his spell was important and without a lot of discussion, Kohli obliged. It's a debate for another day that Chahar had a really expensive over and both of the Windies openers sent his deliveries for multiple boundaries. However, it is worth noticing how Sharma is being a part of such mid-game decision-making more and more with every game. And based on the success he has had in Kohli's absence and as the leader of the most successful franchises of the Indian Premier League, his inputs most definitely have credibility. Another reason why Kohli has started approaching Sharma for his thoughts is the absence of the former Indian captain and wicket-keeper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Not too long ago, it was Dhoni who'd help Kohli make important decisions at crucial moments during a match. As one of the most experienced players of the current Team India and the vice-captain, Sharma has definitely filled the void that MS Dhoni has left behind. © Reuters A month ago, rumours of a tiff between Kohli and Sharma had filled the sports columns of every tabloid and news website. It is therefore refreshing to see such teamwork and two of the best cricketers in the world working together as a unit. View the full article
  6. Dressing up for the airport may seem like a task, considering the number of things that one has to keep in mind. Starting from the security check, to staying comfortable throughout the duration of the flight, there are several things that impact how do we dress up for the airport. And perhaps, that's also the reason behind our obsession with airport looks and how the check-in gates have become a runway of sorts. Viral Bhayani Believe it or not, there are some people from Bollywood who do it far better than others. And time and again, they have not only shown up how to ace that casual, laidback, norm-core outfit, but how to own up that look. © Viral Bhayani Rajkummar Rao, is one such B-Towner. Recently he was spotted outside the Mumbai Airport in a pair of rather zany and uber-cool sneakers. The fact they are minimalistic in the manner in which it implements the camouflaged aesthetic makes them even more dapper. But more on that later. Let's get to his outfit first. © Viral Bhayani Rajkummar is seen wearing a black sweater with white horizontal stripes which has been paired with a rather plain and simple, blue coloured bomber jacket. The jacket, as plain and simplistic as it is, works rather well with the blue, strongly washed and heavily distressed pair of blue denim. © Viral Bhayani The choice of his accessory, the cat-eyed frameless pieces are really something on their own and do stand out. But honestly, the sunglasses, as zany as they are, do not really gel well with the rest of the outfit. © Viral Bhayani Finally, coming to the sneakers, they clearly are the statement piece of the ensemble, and draw attention. The sneakers in question are a pair of leather sneakers from Prada, which are listed on their website for $790, which stands at roughly just shy of Rs 57,000. Mind you, since these are a luxury leather item, be ready to shell out north of 20 per cent more in import duties and customs. © Hypebeast The sneakers are primarily made of grade A calfskin leather, nylon fabrics and rubber, with rubber being concentrated at the sole. The camouflaged aesthetic of the sneakers is it quite appealing. © Hypebeast © Viral Bhayani All in all, we'll have to say, that this is an airport look done really well. Kudos, Rajkummar!

  7. For someone who wasn't satisfied with his body early in his career, Virat Kohli, now, has arguably become the face of fitness in the Indian cricket team. Watching his diet and sweating it out in the gym, Kohli has transformed himself into a vital asset for Team India, with his fitness levels on par with other top-class athletes, even other than cricket. It was Kohli's stress on the need to gain adequate fitness levels which eventually sparked a revolution in the Indian team which is now one of the most athletic sides in international cricket. But, while Kohli can surely be credited for kickstarting a fitness revolution amongst his teammates, he, despite his chiselled physique and unmatched work ethic, is not the fastest man in the Indian dressing room. It's Ravindra Jadeja instead. Often labelled as the best fielder in world cricket, Jadeja needs no introduction when it comes to brilliance in the field. Whether it's converting singles into doubles, diving full length to stop the ball or hitting the stumps with perfection, Jadeja is an asset many cricket teams can only dream of. Love group conditioning sessions. And when Jaddu is in the group, itâs almost impossible to outrun him ðð. @RishabhPant17 @imjadeja pic.twitter.com/QMK4nysoFh â Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) November 25, 2019 While Jadeja's athleticism is well documented, his ability to outrun his Team India mates was testified by captain Kohli following their conditioning session. Taking to Twitter, the Indian captain shared a picture of himself in the company of Jadeja and Rishabh Pant, and captioned it: "Love group conditioning sessions. And when Jaddu is in the group, it's almost impossible to outrun him". On the other hand, India continue to dominate their home season and currently occupy the top spot in the ICC World Test Championship table with 360 points, well ahead of the second-placed Australia. The Kohli-led brigade began their World Test Championship campaign with a 2-0 whitewash in West Indies and carried their fine form to the home season where they crushed South Africa and, more recently, Bangladesh. While the Indian pace battery have undoubtedly emerged as a positive for India's recent success at home, Jadeja has also made his mark in the role of India's No. 6 batsman. The Saurashtra all-rounder scored three fifty-plus scores, including a knock of 91 runs, in five matches batting higher up the order. And, his batting position further allows Kohli to be flexible with his team selection. After cutting Bangladesh a sorry figure with a 2-0 whitewash in the recently-concluded Test series, Team India will now host West Indies in three Twenty20 (T20) Internationals and a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series, slated to begin from 6th December in Hyderabad.

  11. A normal day in the life of Ranveer Singh would look something like this: waking up, brushing teeth, planning a bizarre outfit for the day, have pictures clicked, work for brilliant films, come back home and repeat the next day. That is the kind of reputation Ranveer Singh has set for himself after wearing the most unthinkable and the wackiest outfits of all times. Ranveer Singh's prime weapon in promoting a film is the way he dresses for promotions. These outfits are out of the ordinary and no one can imagine wearing these outfits in the restricting space of Bollywood. The fact that someone mainstream like himself wears these outfits makes all the more headlines in the mainstream media. For the recent awards, Ranveer Singh wore a yellow pant suit from the Dior homme, SS19. To complete the look, he groomed a perfect pornstar moustache to go with it and futuristic space-age sun glasses. Take a look: © Instagram/ @ranveersingh © Instagram/ @ranveersingh After the launch of his music label INCINK, Ranveer Singh is venturing out in the music industry with his fellow gully boy rappers.

Look at him sport some sharp outfits. © Instagram/ @ranveersingh © Instagram/ @ranveersingh We can't wait for the crazy outfits that Ranveer Singh is going to throw at us.
  12. STOP THE PRESSES! There is a new fabric that is slowly but surely taking over the world of fashion. Harvested from cotton farms in the United States, supima cotton is an incredibly exciting fabric that actually represents only 1% of all of the cotton that is grown in the world. Simply put, here is a premium wonder fabric that all Indian men absolutely need to know about. Whether you were looking for the best trousers for men, the best round neck t shirts for men, or the best thumbhole t shirts, here is why you should ABSOLUTELY make sure that they are made using supima cotton to get the absolute most bang for your buck! 1. It's Almost Twice Softer Than Regular Cotton © The March Tee As T shirts primarily tend to be a summer outfit, your level of comfort when you put them on should ideally be of paramount importance. In fact, just how comfortable your t-shirt is going to be becomes even more important when you realise that, by and large, you are also going to be using them to layer up your outfits and create different looks. As such, investing in supima cotton, that happens to be twice softer than regular cotton, pretty much acts as a no-brainer. 2. All The While Being Four Times Stronger As Well © The March Tee Now in normal cases, when a fabric tends to be incredibly soft, it normally isn't able to make any tall claims about its strength. Well, the reason why many people consider supima cotton to be the wonder fabric is because you pretty much get the best of both worlds. Despite being a lot softer than regular cotton, it is also FOUR TIMES stronger than it. This also means that you don't have to fret over the durability of supima cotton. As such, if you want to wear the best t shirts for men out there, you should make sure that their fabric composition comprises of supima cotton. 3. The Length Of Its Fibers Is Longer Too © The March Tee Unlike regular cotton fibres, the fibres of supima cotton are actually 1.5x longer. This ends up causing two immense benefits. Firstly, the longer fiber resists pulling, breaking and tearing, making it a better investment on your end. And secondly, the longer fiber makes for a smoother and softer surface, ensuring that your comfortability is greatly enhanced. 4. The Colours Look Bolder © The March Tee Another largely underrated property of supima cotton? It actually absorbs colour better than regular cotton. Which effectively means that the best plain black t shirts for men, the best white t shirts, and more importantly, t shirts of solid colours need to be made of supima cotton if you want their colours to be long-lasting and not fade away after just a few washes.
  13. Going into the 2019 Asian Cup, the Japanese football team was looked upon as one of the top contenders for the coveted title. They began their campaign with convincing wins over Turkmenistan, Oman and Uzbekistan in the Group Stage before overcoming a resilient Saudi Arabia side in the Round of 16. A 1-0 victory over Vietnam in the quarters saw them setting a date a semifinals date with Iran who were eventually steamrolled 0-3 by the 'Samurai Blue'. A prolific run in the tournament finally placed them in the all-important final where they found dark horse Qatar standing in their way of the Asian Cup title. AP But, it was Qatar whose spirited run found a fairy-tale ending. Thanks to goals from Almoez Ali, Abdulaziz Hatem and Akram Afif, Qatar lifted their maiden Asian Cup trophy and made their intentions clear ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup which will be hosted by them. Japan's Takumi Minamino scored a goal for his side, but couldn't save the four-time Asian Cup champions from defeat in the final. For a team that had come agonisingly close to winning the title, Japanese football team and their fans surely suffered a heartbreak following their loss.

After their loss, the Japanese squad showed their class by cleaning up their dressing room. The 2019 Asian Cup runners-up left the floor spotless and wrote a 'Thank You' note in English, Arabic and Japanese language as they expressed their gratitude to the organisers of the tournament.

During the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, the Japanese brigade had also cleaned up their dressing room and left a 'Thank You' note following their Round of 16 exit at the hands of Belgium - proving why they are football's classiest nation. Owing to their latest antics, there was no surprise to see football fans across the globe showering praise on the Maya Yoshida-led side for setting an example in the sport.

  14. Now that 2018 is ending, everyone is in a party mood, and naturally, wants to end the year with a bang. The plans for the New Year parties are on, and every man wants to look his best for that. New Year dance parties, irrespective of wherever they are, have one thing in common. They get wild. The warm layers come off, and everyone wants to show off their 'guns' - no pun intended. If you have been hitting the weights in the gym like an animal, it's easy for you, but some of us have been wallowing a little too much in the holiday spirit, and haven't been able to hit the gym as much as we usually do. What's the solution then, to look fit for the big night? If you somehow can manage to make your arms look bigger than they actually are, along with making your waist look smaller, it makes you look super fit. Keeping that in mind, we have devised three clever hacks that will help you out. Karan Tacker seems to know how to read our mind, and he wore an outfit exactly like that. Read on. © Viral Bhayani 1. To make your waist look slimmer, you need to create an illusion of elongation. Wear co-ords. By that, we mean wear the same colour on your upper body, as well as your lower body. That way, even if you have a little bit of flab around the tummy or your waist, that will be inconspicuous. © Viral Bhayani 2. Go for dark colours. Dark colours are slimming. They will make you look skinnier than you actually are. That, along with the co-ord situation, will make you look taller as well. It's a win-win! © Viral Bhayani 3. Wear a fitted T-shirt that cups your shoulders and chest nicely. The arms need to be fitted as well, and can't be hanging around loose. Along with that, wear a pair of pants that fit you nicely around the waist and the glutes, but isn't essentially a pair of super skinny trousers. The fitted T-shirt will make sure that your arms look well-defined and big, and the pants will give your bottom a natural lift that will make it look bigger, thereby making your physique look super fit. © Viral Bhayani Pro-tip: Before you head out for the party, do some push-ups and squats at home for that extra party pump. They will add some temporary, but optimum volume to your triceps, chest, and glutes. There is no substitute for that and you know it. Follow these tips and you'll be all set. Good luck!
  15. After blanking their opponents 3-0 in the T20 International (T20I) series, the Pakistan cricket team was busy giving New Zealand a run for their money in the One-Day Internationals (ODIs). Trailing 0-1 in the ODI series, Pakistan made a comeback to level the proceedings 1-1 before rain spoiled their chances in the third and final game. What awaited next was a stern test of their character, as Sarfraz Ahmed's men geared up for the three-match Test series against the Kiwis. And, the fact that Pakistan bowled New Zealand out for a mere 153 runs in the first innings, showed that they meant business. While Babar Azam and Asad Shafiq looked good with the willow in the first innings, the bowling masterclass of Hasan Ali and Yasir Shah ensured Pakistan needed just 176 runs to win the Test and take a 1-0 lead. © Twitter/@TheRealPCB Needing 139 runs with ten wickets in hand at the start of Day 4, Pakistan and their fans would have surely felt at ease against the Kiwis, who were probably ruled out of the game. But, neither the two playing sides nor any cricket pundit could have possibly anticipated what eventually unfolded during the day's play at the Sheikh Zayed stadium in Abu Dhabi. The fourth day's play was an apt reminder of the many run-chases Pakistan have barbecued over the years. Despite losing three wickets early on, Sarfraz's side rarely looked in trouble - courtesy a gritty 82-run partnership between Azhar Ali and Shafiq. But, some mediocre batting and a maiden five-wicket haul of debuting left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel handed New Zealand a thrilling, even unexpected, four-run win. With Pakistan botching away a run-chase yet again, the mood in their camp was understandably damp. But, at the same time, New Zealand's dressing room was buzzing with celebratory noise. For the Kiwis, it was undoubtedly a special win which called for an equally special celebration. New Zealand players celebrating the win in Abu Dhabi with a bit of bhangra #PAKvNZ pic.twitter.com/UJNN0FRnH7 — Saj Sadiq (@Saj_PakPassion) 19 November 2018 After their emphatic triumph brought jubilation on the field, the celebrations continued in the dressing room where the Kiwis were spotted unveiling their Bhangra moves to the tunes of hit Punjabi track "Mundian To Bach Ke". While the New Zealand cricket fans were happy to see their national team's celebrations, the Pakistani fans opined that the dance video further rubbed salt to the wound. Yr why r u showing this.

  17. Ahead of the 2018 Asia Cup, cricket fans and pundits seemed pretty sure about the competition between India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka for the all-important trophy. While some anticipated Bangladesh to spring a surprise or two, few would have expected anything at all from the likes of Afghanistan and Hong Kong. But, since the first game, the ongoing tournament continues to offer surprises. It all began with Bangladesh recording a 137-run rout of Sri Lanka in the tournament opener. Then, it was Afghanistan who romped to a 91-run win to send the Lankans packing. The fourth match of the tournament saw Hong Kong almost pulling off an upset against India before eventually losing the game by 26 runs. © BCCL For a team that is still an associate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC), Hong Kong clearly punched above their weight to give India a surprising scare. Chasing a total of 285 runs, Hong Kong got off to a roaring 174-run start with both openers Nizakat Khan (92) and Anshuman Rath (73) notching up their respective fifties. But, a middle-order collapse saw them being restricted to 259/8 in their quota of 50 overs. Hong Kong did lose the game, which they probably think they should've, but there is no denying that the team packs a punch and is destined to do better in the future. Their performance against India also saw them earning a lot of praise from the cricket bigwigs and fans alike. But, the best gesture for Hong Kong came from the Indian team themselves. Dressing Room ð¹: #TeamIndia's heart-warming gesture. After a hard-fought game, #TeamIndia visited Hong Kong's dressing room and met the promising cricketers, posed for pictures and shared their knowledge - by @28anand.

A video of the incident was shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Twitter. "Dressing Room: #TeamIndia's heart-warming gesture. After a hard-fought game, #TeamIndia visited Hong Kong's dressing room and met the promising cricketers, posed for pictures and shared their knowledge," the Indian cricket board tweeted. The video has since gone viral on the micro-blogging website, where the cricket fans were seen appreciating Team India's touching gesture. India showed great sportmanlike behaviour throughout the England tour and look like they are continuing it in this competition. They are a credit to their nation and the whole world of cricket. #respect — Dave Bundy (@bundy201065) September 19, 2018 Good Gesture, well played Hong Kong.

  18. Chhote Nawab has always had that rare royal edge to his outfits, irrespective of what he is wearing. Being a 'Nawab' has to be stressful when it comes to maintaining an apt appearance everywhere you go, but Saif has proved time and time again, consistently so, that he can manage to do that without breaking a sweat. In fact, he is an inspiration for anyone who wants to dress up like the royalty. His latest appearance cemented that fact, when he stepped out wearing the ultimate vintage outfit - a 'Godfather' inspired suit, with a real red rose to boot. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Saif has decided to keep and grow his majestic 'Sartaj Singh' beard from 'Sacred Games', which just intensified the appeal of the outfit. (Okay, the fact that Kubra Sait accompanied him, looking every bit as resplendent as Kukoo, certainly helped). The wide lapelled old world charm of his blazer was a perfect addition to the modern trousers, with a vertical side stripe. Saif looked straight out of an Italian movie from the '70s or '80s. Vito Corleone would be proud! © Viral Bhayani Saif's look was so on point, that SRK decided to shower some major love on him. © Viral Bhayani No wonder they are the OG style icons of Bollywood. © Viral Bhayani That look was totally lit, Saif. *Applause*
  19. Anil Kapoor is ageing in reverse. His transformation over the years legit has the potential to give rise to a full-fledged conspiracy theory, involving anti-ageing potions or pills that have already been discovered, but being hidden from the public, and him being the probable test subject. That perhaps is a long shot, so we'll settle for the fact that this man here really knows how to take care of himself, and has managed to not let old age touch his well-being. Son-in-law Anand Ahuja posted a comparison picture on Instagram a few days ago that showed the Anil Kapoor from 1984 Vs. AK from 2018. © Instagram It looks like he hasn't aged a day! Right? The reason? Along with the diet and fitness bit, superficially, he does know the fashion bit as well (that probably is Rhea and Sonam, but he carries it off like a pro). What we're trying to say here, is that he doesn't dress like a 61-year-old, and applies certain dressing hacks that do in fact, make him look like a 25-year-old at times. Let's take a look. 1. He wears the latest silhouettes that are super popular among youngsters, like long-line shirts. © Instagram 2. His accessory game is on point. His staples are statement sunnies and watches, which look dope AF, with that light-hearted and charming personality. © Viral Bhayani 3. He understands the complicated game of fitting and length. He has moved away from the typical, safe space that every Indian man finds comfort in - and dabbles in unconventional fits and lengths. The result is here for everyone to see. © Instagram 4. He doesn't do 'dad-shoes'. His son-in-law might be a renowned sneakerhead, but he knows how to play the game equally well. © Instagram 5. He has not skipped a beat when it comes to embracing 'new-age grooming'. Look at that sick fade he's sporting here. © Instagram We bow down before you, Sir.
  20. If you're someone who is body positive and are happy with whatever shape and size you are, but still want to look slimmer sometimes without making a big deal out of it, please read on. There are ways that can manipulate our body into looking the way we want it to. Making our body look slimmer and skinnier than it actually is, can easily be done with a little bit of adjustment here and there. We have compiled 5 super effective, clever dressing tricks that will make you look slimmer than you actually are. 1. Wear More Black Instagram Black is slimming. As the darkest colour, it makes your body look slimmer than it actually is. Try wearing black overalls for best results. 2. Try To Incorporate Vertical Lines In Your Outfit © Instagram Vertical lines give the illusion of length. When you incorporate them in your outfit, they help you look taller and slimmer. 3. Try Outfits That Are Elongated & Have Continuous Length © Instagram When a single piece of garment stretches over a considerable length, it creates an illusion of continuity, that helps you look slimmer, and taller too. 4. Go For Dark, Rich Colours © Instagram Dark, rich colours work on the same principle as black. They make you look more petite, especially when you go for a monochromatic outfit. 5. Go For Irregular Silhouettes © Instagram Irregular silhouettes take the focus away from how your usual clothes divide your body horizontally, thereby making you look less broad.
  21. Imagine you're downloading an important file, it has already been hours since you started the download and your computer crashes when you reach 98%. Or imagine you're running a marathon and right when you were about to cross the finish line you trip and someone else wins the race. The reason why I am giving you these examples is that, no matter how painful or frustrated you feel when such things happen, nothing can even come close to how Japan is feeling right now. © Reuters Until the 52nd minute, Japan and all those who were glued to their TV sets were hopeful that the Blue Samurai will create history by qualifying in the FIFA World Cup 2018 quarter-finals as they were leading by 2-0. Till the 93rd minute, there was still some hope left but by the 94th minute, all hopes were brutally crushed, when Belgium's Nacer Chadli scored the winning goal and paved way for Belgium's victory. © Reuters However, this match has put Japan in a new light as a team, that not only gave a tough competition to Belgium on-field, but also set an example in front of the whole world with their off-field heartwarming gestures. Reportedly, the Japanese team cleaned up their locker room themselves, after the match. In fact, they even left a note for Russia that read 'Spasibo', which translates to 'thank you'. Amazing from Japan. This is how they left the changing room after losing v Belgium: cleaned it all. And in the middle, have left a message to Russia: “Spasibo” (Thank you) pic.twitter.com/lrwoIZt2pR — Tancredi Palmeri (@tancredipalmeri) July 3, 2018 Earlier, we read about how the teary-eyed Japan fans, despite losing the match, stayed back to clean up the stadium. While we were busy praising the fans, the Japan football team proved that being humble and grateful is something imbibed in their nature (something we all need to learn from). © Reuters The Blue Samurai might have made a heartbreaking exit from the ongoing World Cup 2018, but they won millions of hearts and earned everyone's respect with their humility.
  22. Sneakerheads are to fashion what spices are to Indian cuisine. You know that ecstatic feeling that takes over when you put on a new pair of sneakers - a pair that you have been looking forward to own? If you thrive on that, and voluntarily work towards making sure that you get to experience that on a regular basis by expanding your sneaker collection, you're a sneakerhead. But how to make sure your prized possessions get the respect and admiration they deserve? The trick lies in coming up with outfits that don't steal the focus away from your sneakers, but make you look classy anyway. Aamir Baig, footwear designer and manic aesthete, tells us how to do exactly that. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno "Shoes are more than just footwear, you know? They are an extension of your personality. You can tell a lot about a man by looking at his choice of shoes. I am a rather staunch believer of that, given my profession. So yes, I'm always focused on ways to make my creations grab the limelight," says Aamir, while tying the laces of his white sneakers. "The thing with good sneakers is that, they should be able to grab your attention by their own right, and not because you're coercing someone to notice them. That indeed is a tough tightrope to walk." © MensXP/Anubhav Sood / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno "My go-to outfit for that purpose always includes a pair of my basic jeans. I prefer a pair that fits me well and comes without any rips or distressed elements whatsoever. I'm a little conservative that way. Somehow, it just feels very secure, is comfortable, and most importantly, doesn't take the focus away from my shoes - which has always been very important for me, again, given my profession." © MensXP/Anubhav Sood / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno Aamir then proceeded to answer our questions about his unusual relationship with denim. Your first ever denim purchase? Not counting the questionable jeans my parents used to buy for me for the longest time, I think my first purchase was a pair of monkey wash Levi's jeans when I was 16-17. What's your relationship with denim: best friends/committed? Or is it complicated... Best friends if they fit really, really well, otherwise complicated/divorced. Denim or food? FOOD. Does slipping into denim depend upon your mood? Yes. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno Dark wash or light wash jeans? Dark wash, 100 percent. How often do you wash your jeans? Always after wearing them just once. Ripped or distressed? Distressed. Three must-have denim pieces for men? Dark/Ink blue shirt, white straight fit jeans, black fitted denim jacket. How do you take denim from AM to PM? White pair of crisp spotless jeans with pastel colours of your choice or prints along with sneakers/fabric loafers for AM, to dark wash jeans with solid color dress shirt tucked in with penny or tassel loafers for a PM look. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno The perfect denim outfit for Summer 2018 is... Dad jeans - relaxed, loose fitted, pale, and basic - worn with a printed shirt to layer up any basic white T-shirt. Plus dark keds or sneakers. Slim, relaxed or skinny-fitted jeans? Slim. Ever tried re-purposing denim? If yes, tell us about it... Not really, unless you count getting their length altered, and getting them dyed on and off, if I feel they don't look dark enough. A bad/good denim memory you can never forget... Not quite sure what kind of memory it is, but I still remember those dreadful monkey wash jeans I wore when I was a teenager. They haunt me whenever I go through my old pictures. '31 Days Of Denim' is a social experiment of sorts, or in layman terms, the ultimate Denim guide, on how to inject your personality, and inherent sense of self into, say, a basic-ass pair of jeans. Bonus: It features the finest men in the capital, all with very distinct style sensibilities, but primarily, each having an innate love for all things denim.

  23. Following a two-year ban from the tournament over the sensational spot-fixing case, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) were desperate to restore their pride on the back of a successful outing in the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). They began their campaign with a win over defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and then reached the Playoffs with a second-place finish in the points tally. The influence-peddling antics of an 'enthusiastic' Gurunath Meiyappan (the disgraced team principal) had robbed the integrity of the Chennai franchise and pushed them into abyss for two years as their fans patiently awaited their return. But, on 27th May, the MS Dhoni-led brigade repaid the faith of their fans and restored their lost pride by clinching their record-tying third IPL title at the Wankhede stadum. BCCI Opting to field first, Chennai saw their opponents posting a competitive total of 178 runs. The likes of Kane Williamson (47) and Yusuf Pathan (45*) were pivotal in their innings which was fairly slow early on. In reply, Chennai were bolstered by the batting masterclass of Shane Watson whose unbeaten 57-ball 117 ensured they reached the target with eight wickets and nine balls to spare. Despite struggling early in the innings and battling hamstring injury, Watson made the game his own on the back of 11 fours and eight sixes while scoring at a blistering strike-rate of over 205. Suresh Raina (32) and Ambati Rayudu (16*) also chipped in as Chennai stunned Hyderabad before running away with the title. #WhistlePodu for the #SuperChampions! pic.twitter.com/C31h1u2yoh — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) May 27, 2018 Everywhere we go!

  24. Sometimes, flaunting the biggest menswear flex doesn't need to be your style-aim for the day. "I rather look turnt up all day, man" — isn't the most practical approach towards fashion. 'Smart dressing' is. Think of the setting/situation you're stepping into, work towards an occasion-appropriate ensemble, give a slight (or more) thought and slip into the most realistic, gut-induced choices. Don't be a try-hard. Taking this exact theory forward, let's bring in the concept of no-efforts dressing; the most simplified (but smartest) way of slipping into your everyday gear. Owner of magically-blessed taste buds and also, flag-bearer of a self-acquired business acumen, Shuchir Suri too, is an ardent supporter of no-efforts dressing. But while he may say 'no-efforts', that's unfortunately, not the truth of his dressing abilities. Because after all, 'no-efforts' is the result of careful thought and sartorial efforts towards looking a certain way. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood Let's break this down. As seen on Suri here, he's gone for a checked shirt + a pair of black jeans + trainers for his stunt for '31 Days of Denim' for us today. Thought #1: He's gone all-classic, by picking a safe checked shirt. He's a conservative dresser. Thought #2: His black jeans may be wardrobe staples and owned by every man in the world, but the fit is a nail. In fact, they've also been folded right (notice a bigger-than-usual fold). Thought #3: Trainers are all-day shoes. And since Shuchir falls into the category of 'chilled-out dudes', we're not surprised with his throw-in of Athleisure here. Thought #4: The over-all palette of the ensemble is quite conservative, with traces of tints and tones of yellow. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood Final Thought: The over-all rhapsody looks quite refined. Notice how his choices may be global staples and everyday essentials, but there's a lot of refinement involved in how they've been styled. Now that's key: he's had a game plan towards making the outfit look a certain way. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood For one, Suri picked a checked shirt here — one of the biggest prophets of no-efforts dressing. Something, that may be classic and safe, but looks supremely spiffy and has a variant for every body type. He has anyway nailed the fit of it, complete with a slight fold on the sleeve. His jeans, as we said, are conservative as hell sure, but fit him like second skin. Attaboy! However, with the trainers coming as part of the combo, suddenly, we're also seeing a lot of ease in this ensemble. Now that's the hack to take any outfit into the 'no-efforts' domain. Using separates that aren't usually seen in the most formal/semi-formal settings and exude more of relaxed/on-the-go vibes; are what will define your no-brainer aesthetic in life. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood All summed up, the key to no-efforts dressing lies in your outfit-accompaniments. Slip into whatever the hell you want and throw in practical accessories to lend an eased-out appeal. The simplest way to do this: take cues from Athleisure-inspired nuances. '31 Days Of Denim' is a social experiment of sorts, or in layman terms, the ultimate Denim guide, on how to inject your personality, and inherent sense of self into, say, a basic-ass pair of jeans. Bonus: It features the finest men in the capital, all with very distinct style sensibilities, but primarily, each having an innate love for all things denim.

  25. For a cricketer who burst on to the international scene in 2008, David Warner has undoubtedly come a long way to establish himself as one of the most destructive batsmen in all forms of the game. A hard man to keep quiet, if Warner's bat isn't doing the talking, his mouth probably is, and either way you can expect an assertive approach from the Australian. And, Australia's ongoing tour of South Africa seems to be no different. After hammering a brilliant fifty in the first innings, Warner once again found himself in a fiery verbal exchange with an opposition player. The Australian vice-captain was seen lashing out at South Africa's Quinton de Kock who is believed to have sparked the incident. Following the tea break in the first Test on Sunday, the players from both the teams were making their way towards the dressing room when the incident occurred. In dramatic CCTV footage, a fired-up Warner was seen remonstrating with De Kock on the stairwell as the cricketers walked into the changing rooms. @davidwarner31 and @QuinnyDeKock69 Verbal Exchange during Tea Break. #AUSvSA pic.twitter.com/6Rr4Xkx2lQ — Thakur (@ThakurHassam) March 4, 2018 Such was the ferocity in Warner's approach towards De Kock that he was physically held back by his teammate Usman Khawaja and then shepherded into Australia's dressing room by skipper Steve Smith. On the other hand, Smith's counterpart, Faf du Plessis, was also seen rushing out from the changing room and having a few words with Aussie wicket-keeper, Tim Paine. Ugly scenes in Durban. Can only assume something very personal has been throw at @davidwarner31 for this type of reaction. Not a good look all round. #SAvAUS — Adam Gilchrist (@gilly381) March 5, 2018 It appears that De Kock allegedly provoked Warner and sparked the verbal war with his derogatory remarks about the Australian's wife, Candice, who is currently travelling with her husband on tour. "Quinton got quite personal and provoked an emotional response from Davey. As far as I am aware we didn't get personal toward Quinton,” Smith was quoted as saying by The Australian. © Reuters “Those things on, you can't be getting into someone's personal life like that. You can't be getting into someone's personal life in my opinion. Obviously now it is in the hands of the officials,” he added further. A Cricket Australia spokesperson said on Monday: "Following the end of the second session there was an incident involving David Warner and Quinton de Kock on return to the changing rooms.” Gilly- Warner crossed many personal boundaries with the South Africans, so we can't be surprised when there is eventually a reaction. If players are happy to give it,they have to be prepared to take it,too. On both sides! But agreed not a good look. #SAvsAUS https://t.co/obTo0GO2H8 — Graeme Smith (@GraemeSmith49) March 5, 2018 "The incident was discussed between the two team managers and the match referee (Jeff Crowe) last night and it is now in the hands of the on field umpires and the match referee. Both teams were reminded by the match referee of the spirit in which the game should be played," he said. © Reuters South Africa, too, released a statement via team manager Mohammed Moosajee, who said: "It's rather unfortunate that the incident took place and certainly not in the spirit of the game. The match referee had spoken to us after the day's play. We will await any further communication from the ICC around this incident". The visiting side eventually won the first Test in Durban by 118 runs and went up 1-0 in the four-match series, but the stairwell incident has sadly overshadowed their triumph and might fuel more incidents like these in the remaining matches. With revenge on their minds, the Proteas will take on the visitors in the second Test at Port Elizabeth on Friday.
