  1. Samsung recently announced its new true wireless earbuds with the Galaxy S10 and is a competitor with the AirPods. We've been using the Galaxy Buds for a week and it's been a good experience so far. At the same time, we've been using the AirPods ever since it was launched and you can read our full review here. We pit the two wireless earbuds against each other to find out which one is best for music lovers. Sound Quality Regardless of the features, earbuds need to sound good and if it doesn't fit the bill, it completely defeats the purpose. The AirPods generally sound awesome especially for something with small drivers. It delivers clean vocals, has balanced lows and great highs. The overall sound is quite impressive —until I heard the Galaxy Buds. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy Buds sound a tad bit better than the AirPods simply because it is clearer and louder. Sound quality is almost at par; however, the lows were a bit muffled. You can adjust it from the gear app; however, it still isn't as good as the AirPods. Winner: Galaxy Buds for delivering cleaner and louder sounds. Design © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In terms of design, Apple has made the true wireless earbuds iconic which has resulted in companies copying the design. It has a glossy white finish on the case and has that distinctive design on the actual earbuds. Having said that, the AirPods are not sweat resistant and can slip out with ease. The Galaxy Buds, on the other hand, follows a refined design from the Gear Icon X and is also sweat resistant. It isn't as slippery as the AirPods and will not fall out as easily. The charging case is a bit bigger than its competitor but also supports wireless charging. If you a smartphone that supports reverse wireless charging, you can keep it charged on the go or use a Qi-certified wireless mat. AirPods, on the other hand, does not support wireless charging and needs to be charged using the lightning cable. Winner: Galaxy Buds for having sweat resistance and a wireless charging case. Connectivity © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy Buds supports Bluetooth 5 connectivity whereas the AirPods use Apple's W1 chip. Both devices connect to an iPhone/Galaxy S10 seamless the moment you open the charging case. Having said that, the story is a bit different when it comes to connectivity and range. The Galaxy Buds have a very poor range even when the Galaxy S10 would be in our pocket. It would often disconnect or is unable to transfer enough data for seamless music experience. AirPods, on the other hand, can play music up to 5 feet without any loss of data or music. Winner: AirPods for better connectivity. Control and Call Quality © MensXP The Galaxy Buds have a touchpad in the triangular shell and can be used to control music and make or answer calls. You can tap once to play/pause music, double tap to skip to the next track or tap thrice to go to the previous song. The touch on the Galaxy Buds is a bit sensitive however it was not that hard to operate. AirPods, on the other hand, have similar controls but are divided amongst the two earbuds. You can map it according to your own liking and even summon Siri by double tapping on the earbuds. It works perfectly with Apple Music and Spotify. Having said that, call quality is better on the AirPods as audio on the Galaxy Buds were a bit muddy. AirPods has clearer sound and mic quality which gives it the extra edge over the Galaxy Buds. Winner: AirPods for better call quality and better integration with Apple Music. Battery Life © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy Buds can last up to 6 hours on a single charge whereas the average battery life on the AirPods is 4.5 hours. The Galaxy Buds come with 68-mAh battery and can even be charged on the go via wireless charging (provided you have the Galaxy S10 or the Huawei Mate 20 Pro). Winner: Galaxy Buds for longer battery life and wireless charging Overall Winner Even though it's a close fight, the Galaxy Buds deliver a better experience and offers more features than the AirPods. It sounds better and is more comfortable to use. It fits snug as a bug and won't fall out as easily as Apple's AirPods. The Galaxy Buds are also cheaper than Apple's AirPods which makes it even more superior than the AirPods.
  2. Anil Kapoor must be doing something weird - something no one knows about, something that's keeping him young, in fact, perhaps even turning the clock in reverse for him. We are not saying it, it's just the general sentiment among people, who constantly wonder how on earth this man seems to be getting younger by the day. Now, we have made peace with just believing that he's another case like Benjamin Button, but what baffles us is that his fashion sense is also getting edgier by the day! He just clicked a picture with a bunch of youngsters (compared to him, of course) like Aditya Roy Kapoor and Kunal Khemu, and stole their collective thunder by wearing a pair of funky AF pink shoes. Take a look. © Instagram/Anillskapoor © Instagram/Anilskapoor Isn't Mr Kapoor standing apart by a mile, thanks to his footwear game? He's wearing the OFF-WHITE x Nike Zoom Fly in Tulip Pink - a pair of sneakers that are extremely conspicuous, while being comfortable at the same time. © Kicksonfore © Kicksonfore The signature Off-White typography along with the multiple shades of pink make this a pair that's a definite collectable, and every sneakerhead will agree. Right, Anand Ahuja? © Kicksonfore © Kicksonfore We're in love with the ergonomic design, as well as the signature laces. All we can say is, Mr Kapoor, take a bow because you're doing it just right.
  3. As streetwear trend catches on, a good ol' pair of jeans is not just a basic piece anymore. As more and more brands hop on the bandwagon of street-inspired attire, denim trends have evolved as well. Be it an ode to the 80s with bleached jeans or the much hyped distressed jeans, denim continues to be a statement maker even with new trends. Denim being the most versatile of the lot, acts as a perfect canvas for DIY tricks. Buying a pair of contemporary style jeans can be pretty expensive. Instead, why not spend a few hours on a lazy weekend to give new life to an already useless old pair found at the back of the closet? Try out these 4 DIY tricks and transform your old pair of basic jeans into a trendy one: 1. Distressed Jeans © instagram @vickykaushal09 What you need: Chopping board, chalk, scissors, sandpaper, tweezer Safety first, place a chopping board where you intend you place your denims. Nobody wants destroyed mattresses or rugs in the process. Place your pair of jeans and neatly mark a line with a chalk where you want to rip it. Rub the targeted area with sandpaper to loosen up the fabrics first and then make the cut using a scissor. Use the tweezer to pull out threads from the denim to create a rugged effect. Remember to start small as there's no turning back if you rip too much. Pro tip: For knee rips, aim a little above the knee when you're going in with scissors, as tearing too low can make the hole bigger when you walk, as you'll lean into them. 2. Frayed hem © instagram @shahidkapoor What you need: Scissors, chalk, tweezer Frayed hem jeans have been popular recently as they resemble a more hep version of ankle length pants. Perfect for showing off your beloved kicks, frayed jeans are a hoot. To make one at home, iron your jeans first to make sure the length of each leg is equal. Begin by making a straight line with chalk of equal length on each ankle. After snipping the jeans you'll see horizontal and vertical threading. Use a tweezer to pull on the threads until you've reached the level of distressing you want. 3. Patch work jeans © pinterest What you need: Iron, iron-on patch, tea towel Patches have been symbolizing brand values for ages now. Be it the Gucci tiger or the Balenciaga logo, patches represent individuality. Also a great way to mend old jeans or to channel your inner cowboy look, patches can transform jeans in a good way. Iron -on patches are the easiest way to DIY old jeans. For this method, pre-heat the denim with an iron for 30 seconds then place the patch at the desired location. Lay out a tea towel over the jeans so you don't end up burning the patch. Repeat for 90 seconds on each side until secure and dry for a few minutes. Don't use a steam iron as dry heat makes the patch stick better. 4. Paint splatter effect © instagram @vickykaushal09 What you need: Newspapers, rubber gloves, a bucket, acrylic paint If you're a fan of the faux-artist vibes, this look will add edge to your look. If not, well it still looks fly as hell. Pick out a pair f medium or light wash jeans as it displays the effect better. To achieve this effect, lay your jeans on old newspapers, put on some rubber gloves and get your chosen paint ready. Make sure the container is big enough to fit your hand in it. Create a fist and flick the paint onto the jeans rapidly. If you desire bigger paint sploges, flick closer to the jeans and for smaller ones, flick further away from them.
  4. Ranveer Singh just crossed 20M followers on Instagram. Now, this definitely does warrant a celebration, but when you're Ranveer Singh, you're just designed to make the most out of everything. So, he celebrated it in a way that probably got him another 100k followers within a few hours. He wore a pair of shoes that legit has wings. No, we are not kidding. © Instagram/Ranveersingh Not that he's alien to wearing strange shoes, but just look at those sneakers! What is even happening here? Do they fly? Do they help him run faster? Do they make Deepika scream 'Yasss!' or 'Nooooo!' out loud? The possibilities are endless. © Instagram/Ranveersingh Ranveer is wearing the Adidas Originals Indian Wings designed by the iconic Jeremy Scott. Now they might actually not fly, but hey, knowing Ranveer, his spirits must have been on cloud 9 after wearing these babies. What can be a more fitting pair of shoes (no pun intended) for the king of maximalism? © Guillermosubuno © Guillermosubuno © Guillermosubuno The shoes are so extra, you almost don't even pay attention to the traffic-stopping kaleidoscope he is wearing otherwise. The colours are popping in all the right kind of ways, and they the ensemble matches the shoes to a T. © Instagram/Ranveersingh Sometimes we wonder, how drab would our lives have been, if not for Ranveer? We at least can vicariously live on the rainbow of fashion with fluffy clouds and unicorns, thanks to this man right here. You do you, Ranveer!
  5. When you have a physique like Tiger Shroff, you don't really need to put a lot of thought about what to wear. However, Tiger clearly doesn't believe in that and pulls off #OOTDs that are definitely Insta-worthy. He just gave us a glimpse of that with his latest outfit, which was deceptively simple but contained a piece that was 'statement' in the truest sense of the term. He wore a pair of bell-bottoms that were delightfully extra and reminded us of the huge bell-bottoms from the '70s. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani The super roomy pair is something you need guts of steel to carry off, simply because of the unusual (bordering on weird) silhouette they give rise to. © Viral Bhayani Tiger was sagaciously fashionable to have worn it with a navy blue fitted T-shirt of a similar shade, because going minimal on top is the only way one can carry it off without committing a fashion blunder. © Viral Bhayani The best thing about the look is that it's not over the top, but still makes a statement that's remarkably 'high-fashion'. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Maybe it's time to bring back the '70s to the mainstream fashion scene after all!
  6. First thing first: If you haven't yet watched the trailer of 'Gully Boy', please do it because it's insane. Now, let's look at the topic at hand. The trailer just launched, and Ranveer, as usual, decided to wear something that will not allow anyone else to steal his thunder (good luck to whoever tries, huh). He wore a bright yellow puffer jacket on top of a shocking purple T-shirt. © Viral Bhayani Plus an orange head band. Plus a pair of graphic sunnies in shocking pink. © Viral Bhayani Now, that in itself is enough, one would think, in terms of making a statement. But it's not any normal mortal we're talking about here. Since when has Ranveer believed in boundaries? The result? His choice of pants. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Ranveer is wearing an insane pair of pants by the iconic Jeremy Scott, for Adidas Originals. Technically a pair of trousers for women (as originally designed), the Motor Cross embroidered trousers pack a punch like no other. The purple, yellow, and green patches on a black base make it a piece that is all about sheer runway glam. © Lyst The detailing and the edgy calligraphy makes it a pair of pants that looks like it belongs in a fashion museum. © Lyst Look at that craftsmanship! © Lyst Who else can pull it off, if not Ranveer? (Loving those shoes, too.) © Viral Bhayani Can't wait for the movie, Baba!
  7. Salman Khan has worn the same kind of clothes throughout 2018. A black/grey fitted tee, a pair of bootcut jeans (which we doubt whether anyone else still wears), and a pair of black/brown boots. The interesting thing is, despite sounding like a rather odd assortment of pieces, he managed to convert it into a legit aesthetic, and dutifully stuck to it. Naturally, when he went ahead a wore a pair of jeans which are bootcut, but looked straight out of a fashion magazine from the '80s, we couldn't help but take notice. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Now, having a few zippers and a lot of pockets was a legit 'cool' aesthetic during the '90s. Remember the cargo shorts era? But we rarely do see such flamboyance in men's lowers anymore. But well, Salman Khan sure doesn't care about what's in. In fact, if anyone would dare, it's him, and he's proved it with this particular pair. © Viral Bhayani One can actually play a 'how many zippers did you find' game with these super cool pants. Plus, look at the dope pocket detailing. If anyone wants to wear a pair of jeans to the MET Gala, perhaps this is the pair they'd want to check out? (Hey, denim can be an unbeatable element - remember the iconic AF Justin Timberlake - Britney moment?) © Viral Bhayani Btw, just for fun, we did count, and we could spot 9 zippers. Can you find more?
  8. After a savage fashion run in 2019, KJo of course would look forward to upping the ante this year, because that just makes sense. Now, what can be an ideal way to start it off? Wear something 'cray' to an NYE party, so that you can ring in the year in style. But it needs to be comfortable too, apart from being 'glam' enough for the occasion. It's no biggie though, when you're KJo. He just ticked off all the boxes in one swift fashion stroke by wearing a pair of trousers that screamed 'Happy New Year'. © Viral Bhayani Karan wore the 'Laminated sparkling GG jersey jogging pants' from Gucci. The sparkling fabric that emanated an elaborately festive iridescence was enough to make up for the lack of any jewellery (just take a look at the piece). © Gucci © Gucci Coming to how much the pair of jogging pants actually costs, it's worth $1,700, which when converted to Indian currency comes close to Rs 1.19 Lakhs. © Viral Bhayani When it comes to the overall outfit, the choice of black on top was clearly a well-thought out decision, because anything else would look out of place. © Viral Bhayani The silver platforms sneakers by Gucci was the perfect choice in terms of footwear because they provided a similar festive element, while being comfortable enough for KJo to dance the night away - and knowing him, he would have. After all, why hold back when you can afford to not? Happy New Year, Karan!
  9. When it comes to shoes, every man needs a pair that is super statement, yet versatile enough to be worn with most outfits. While black leather shoes have stood the test of time as perhaps the most versatile shoes of all time for men, how long will one keep wearing it? We just spotted a pair of shoes that can serve as an inspiration, when it comes to statement shoes that are also versatile. SRK stepped out wearing them for 'Zero' promotions. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Double monkstraps are one of the classiest variety of shoes. Even if you wear a pair in black, they will give a definitive edge to your outfit. However, if you want to take it further make it brown. SRK, of course, took it to a whole different level by going for a pair that is duo-tone. The toe-cap and upper are composed of a delightful shade of Pecan, while the mid-section and the rest of the body is a rich, dark umber shade. © Viral Bhayani The best thing about this pair is that one can pair it with a formal suit in any colour, and it will look great. If you're feeling a little more adventurous, try them with a semi-formal look with jeans, and the ensemble will look equally good. © Viral Bhayani Moving over the shoes, we are in love with SRK's outfit as well. The blue and black combination is working wonders for his skin tone, and add to that those shoes,it is an outfit to be reckoned with. © Viral Bhayani Well, we learn from him everyday anyway!
  10. When I got the W-1000XM3 headphones for review, I didn't expect the headphones to be impressive in any way. Being an Audiophile and a DJ, I've always been a fan of analogue headphones and have generally disregarded Bluetooth headphones. After listening to the Sony WH-1000XM3, my opinion about wireless headphones truly changed. Sony's new headphones compete directly with Bose's top headphones and to be honest, they have beaten them in delivering the best Bluetooth headphone on the planet. These are the ideal pair of cans for wireless noise-cancellation and here's what we think about the product: Even though its predecessor had a few caveats, Sony built the 1000XM3 from scratch adding more comfort, a better headband and a larger driver for people with bigger ears. The headphones can be folded up so that you can carry it with you everywhere and it even has a flight case if you travel a lot. I used these headphones for my trip to San Francisco, a 22-hour flight where I used these cans for watching Netflix, music and listening to audio books. © Sony The WH-1000XM3 has a new chip that helps in better noise-cancelling. The QN1 chip is integrated with the headphones' DAC and works independently to give you a better experience. This enables the headphones to deliver 32-bit audio processing, higher than any wireless headphone out there. If you use an Android device, the headphones also support LDAC codec which has more bandwidth than Bluetooth. In terms of sound quality, the Sony WH-1000XM3 is capable of delivering warm sounds with very accurate lows and mids. It offers crystal clear sound and enough bass to make the music come alive in your ear. You can even adjust the levels to your own liking through Sony's native headphones app. I particularly liked this feature as not many Bluetooth headphones give you the freedom to adjust the sound to your own liking. When I found the bass to a bit overbearing, I could easily turn down the lows through the app and fine-tune my listening experience. © MensXP During the course of our test, we tested these headphones with Phaeleh's 'Afterglow', a track known for having over the top bass. We also tested the headphones with the Weeknd's 'Discography' and AC/DC's 'Back in Black' album. The headphones performed exceptionally well no matter what we threw at it and sometimes, we could even hear elements that were barely noticeable and can only be heard if you use studio monitors. © Sony What makes the 1000XM3 special is not only the sound but its exceptional noise cancellation capability. As mentioned before, we used these headphones on a 22-hour flight and it was able to block out almost every sound imaginable. The annoying loud jet engine turned into a faint hum that was bearable and enough to make the long flight bearable. The Sony 1000XM3 also comes with an adapter that you can use to watch in-flight entertainment. These headphones came in handy in every situation possible; it particularly performed well when there was a crying baby next to me on the flight. The noise just vanished. You can even customise the noise cancellation according to your environment. The Sony App will tweak the noise-cancellation by playing a series of tones while you have the headphones on. The headphones automatically adjust the noise-cancellation according to your ear profile and surrounding sounds. © MensXP In terms of battery life, the Sony 1000XM3 is expected to have 30 hours of battery life and it truly lived up to the company's claim. Since we had a total travel time of 40 hours (return to India), we only had to charge the headphones once. The headphones have a USB-C port for charging and with a 10-minute charge, the headphones could last for 4 hours more. The Final Say The WH-1000XM3 is one of the best pair of headphones we've ever used, this includes wired headphones as well. These headphones are a must-have gadget if you love music and also like to travel. It is by far my favourite gadget in 2018 and it costs Rs 28,990. In fact, I'm buying a pair for myself this very week and you should get it too if you are serious about music and wireless headphones.
  11. Bhai does what he wants to. His newest project, it looks like, is to keep the fashion flamboyance buoyant in Bollywood, now that Ranveer Singh is a married man and that might just influence his dressing sense (read, Deepika pre-approved clothes are likely to be rather grounded, just like she is). Why we are saying this out of the blue? He just stepped out wearing a pair of pants that made us go: WOAH. Take a look! © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani What a piece! Is there anything that is not going on in that piece? Ombre, patchwork, bootcut silhouette - it has everything! © Viral Bhayani Now, he has tried to keep it a little subtle by wearing black on top, but that's his go-to piece anyway. Also, nothing is enough to tone that Salmon red pair down. © Viral Bhayani What we think is really gutsy about the look, however, is that Salman has made absolutely no efforts to give any special treatment to this pair, even though it is a special pair. The frayed edges, the black leather clunky boots, and the irreverence with which he carries out the rest of his blue bootcut jeans - everything is all too conspicuous here, and that's what makes it a statement look. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is that this is crazy, because we have never spotted Salman Khan in anything like this before. Is something new brewing?
  12. Since we obviously take an interest in everything our favourite Mr Ranveer Singh wears (especially his crazy footwear), it was only expected that we'd be keen to know the details of his wedding footwear. We finally did, and let's just say we were not disappointed in the slightest. Before we get into details, let's take a look at the incredible pair here. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial The gorgeous crimson base adorned with intricate golden embroidery was a perfect match for Ranveer's wedding outfit aesthetic. Royal would be an understatement, but why would you expect any less when it comes to Baba's wedding shoes? The gorgeous pair is the result of an exciting collaboration - that of Sabyasachi and Christian Louboutin. For the uninitiated, Louboutin is a French fashion label by designer Christian Louboutin, that specialises in high-end stiletto footwear. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial Deepika also wore a pair of exquisite maroon jootis, who stand proudly by Ranveer's crimson pair in their own right. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial Though Sabyasachi x Louboutin created some beautiful pieces as a part of their wedding line, we are officially obsessed with DeepVeer's pair. © Instagram/Sabyasachiofficial Paris and Kolkata came together earlier as well, as a testament to Sabyasachi and Christian's love for couture tradition, and here are some of the pieces that were created. © christianlouboutin © christianlouboutin © christianlouboutin Spellbinding, aren't they?
  13. Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar are perhaps the most competitive people in Bollywood. While KJo always makes sure that no one stands a chance when it comes to the conquests of his sartorial adventures, Akshay Kumar does it in life. The recent 'Koffee With Karan' episodes are proof. We just saw a glimpse of that IRL. KJo stepped out wearing an insane pair of shoes, like he usually does. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani He's wearing the 2 Chainz X Versace Chain Reaction sneakers. © Viral Bhayani The statement white bulky sole with chain link details makes the pair stand out, along with the black and red colour palette. © Viral Bhayani You'd think it would be near impossible to beat this pair in terms of making a statement, but Khiladi Kumar clearly thought otherwise. He stepped out in a pair that stood out in its own right, and how! Take a look. © Viral Bhayani High tops are in, but Akshay has always been one to stick to the basics, and not go all out in terms of sticking to a trend. Clearly, times are changing and so is he. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Just look at that insane pair of white sneakers. Not only are they runway-ready, they are giving a whole new dimension to Akki's all-black athleisure outfit. © Viral Bhayani Do we have a new fashionista to look out for in Bollywood? Let's just say KJo sure has competition.
  14. Ayushmann Khurrana is one of those rare celebrities who is never hesitant when it comes to experimenting - be it the eclectic roles he has been taking up of late, or the clothes he wears. For his latest movie 'Andhadhun', he wore a pair of jogger pants that are really strange - but super classy at the same time. In fact, they don't even come across as jogger pants when you first look at them. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani The super loose, comfortable, draped silhouette is extremely fashion-forward, and looks straight out of a runway. The fact that he has paired it with a hoodie of the same fabric, gives it the feel of a swanky jumpsuit - without the functional inconvenience associated. © Viral Bhayani One of the main reasons we like the Pawan Sachdeva piece is that it's fearless, and makes a statement that men's fashion doesn't have to be boring in the slightest. In fact, the unisex appeal of the garment is one of its strongest points. The pleats, the volume, and the construction are extremely 'statement', yet minimalistic. © Viral Bhayani While draping is one of the major elements when it comes to Indian ethnic wear, the advent of pants have rendered it rather obsolete. However, this particular piece has the grace of a draped garment, along with the convenience of a relaxed pair of jogger pants. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the overall look, we love the white Disruptors, as they pair perfectly well with the dark ash-brown shade. Plus, the round sunnies in amber-chrome is giving the whole outfit an edgy, retro vibe. © Instagram Clearly, stylist Isha Bhansali is on top of her game. Well done!
  15. For my money, sneakers are one of the most underrated elements of a guy's ensemble. In the larger scheme of things where people tend to focus on the jackets, t-shirts, shirts and trousers they are wearing, they often end up underestimating the value a kickass pair of sneakers can add to their attire. If worn with the right things, the sneakers you are wearing can make all the difference in ensuring you look good. But finding and getting the right pair of sneakers can often be a daunting task, especially if you don't know what (or how) to look for. So to help make things easier for you, we at MensXP present a simple and easy to follow five-step guide that'll help you buy the best sneakers for yourself. 1) STEP 1: Have Clarity Over The Type Of Sneakers You Are Looking For © Unsplash There are many different types of sneakers you can opt for - running sneakers, casual sneakers and party sneakers just to name a few. So before you start looking for a new pair of sneakers for yourself, you need to have clarity over the type of sneakers you are looking for. It goes without saying that you can't be looking for running sneakers when you're looking for something that'll help you accentuate a party ensemble, and vice-versa. 2) STEP 2: Look At The Bigger Picture © Official Instagram/Vicky Kaushal When you're about to buy a pair of sneakers for yourself, make sure you don't look at them in isolation. After all, what you're going to be pairing those sneakers with is just as important as the sneakers themselves. So make sure you keep in mind the bigger picture - the jackets, shirts, trousers and/or jeans you'll be teaming up your sneakers with - before you buy a pair of sneakers for yourself. 3) STEP 3: Don't Be A Brand Brat! © Unsplash Of course, it goes without saying that Nike, Adidas and Reebok offer some of the best sneakers for men in India (although they are primarily known for running shoes), but you don't have to confine yourself to just those few brands when looking for a pair of sneakers. In fact, thrift shopping for sneakers is an art in itself, and you can get your hands on some incredibly stylish and fashion-forward pairs if you just search with an open mind. Finally, all the money you'll be saving by not being a brand brat certainly won't hurt either. 4) STEP 4: Be Creative © Official Instagram/ Nike Of course, owning a pair of basic black and/or white sneakers is a given, especially since you can pretty much team them up with almost anything in your wardrobe. But you should also think about being a bit creative when choosing a pair of sneakers for yourself. So try opting for funky prints and patterns, as well as unique and complementary colour combinations, and you'll be good to go. 5) STEP 5: Don't Compromise On Your Comfort © Official Instagram/ Vicky Kaushal When it comes to the footwear you are opting for, your comfort should be a high priority. After all, you don't want to contend with those agonizing shoe bites JUST because you wanted to own a stylish pair of sneakers. So make sure you always wear your size and don't opt for sneakers that will make it agonizingly difficult for you to wear AND walk in them.
  16. Usually, when there are manufacturing defects in products, their value decreases - or at least so we thought. But things in fashion work differently, as we have always maintained. The biggest proof of this is a pair of Nike sneakers, that costs a whopping $146,000, which when translated to INR, is more than a crore. Take a look at the pair. © Instagram/highsnobiety This pair of 'Reverse Shattered Backboard' Air Jordan from Nike costs a bomb because of a manufacturing defect, which is the presence of a reverse swoosh. Usually, the signature swoosh in the Nike branding is always upright, but in this case, it is upside down. A lucky mistake? © Instagram/highsnobiety Andrea Canziani, a sneaker enthusiast, ordered this pair online, and when the shoes arrived, he discovered that one had the swoosh in reverse. The pair, a US size 7, meant hitting the jackpot for him. Usually, a factory flaw translates to lowering down of the product's price, because of obvious reasons. But in this case, it transformed this pair into a collectable, thereby rendering it expensive beyond sale logic. Earlier this year too, a similar incident had happened, where a pair of Nike Air Jordan 'Gold Toe' arrived with a similar flaw. That particular pair sold for a rumoured $96,000 (around INR 69 lakhs).

  17. Talent seems to be an inherent part of the Khurrana family. How do you explain both brothers to be natural actors, who have been blowing us away with their extremely mature performances of late? We have known Ayushmann for ages now, thanks to his career as a VJ, but little did we know that little bro Aparshakti, much like the literal meaning of his name, will be a powerhouse of talent who will make a niche for himself in the same industry as his brother. He has clearly been following his big bro's footsteps - and not just in terms of his career, but in terms of style, too. We have maintained for a while now that Ayushmann Khurrana is one of those rare actors in Bollywood whose style game is classy, but fearless and gutsy at the same time. Aparshakti clearly took a leaf out of his book and chose to dress up in a way that reminded us of Ayushmann, while complementing his outfit with a pair of shoes, that are as quirky as his screen presence and choice of characters. © Viral Bhayani Aparshakti chose to wear a pair of classics - white sneakers from Nike X Off-White. What struck us was the presence of the signature Off-White orange tag by Virgil Abloh. He didn't cut it off, and no, it's not a mistake. © Viral Bhayani The presence of a plastic tag on the Off-White shoes by Virgil Abloh is a calculated fashion/branding move. For the uninitiated, Virgil Abloh is an American Fashion designer - a fashion beast, rather, who has been the Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton's Menswear and is the face behind one of the most talked about fashion labels - Off-White. Even though the users have been instructed to cut off the zip tie once they acquire the shoe, the users clearly have taken it upon themselves to consider that little bit of rebellion by not cutting off the zip tie as a hypebeast move - rightfully so, we say. © Viral Bhayani Coming to his outfit, we are in love with the linen ensemble he is wearing. The powder peach outfit with the white kurta inside is extremely relaxed, comfortable, and mature when it comes to streetstyle that's also super classy. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is, we have a new fashion icon to keep an eye out for in Aparshakti. Kudos!
  18. Though nothing can beat the Anushka memes when it comes to the promotions (a happy accident, this one) of 'Sui Dhaaga', homeboy Varun Dhawan isn't taking any chances. He has been going all out - right from wearing tri-coloured T-shirts that say 'Made In India' to showing off his sewing skills in reality TV shows, Varun clearly is as dedicated as 'Mauji' is. Probably that's why he got himself a super hypebeast-y jersey (or is that a delightful spin on the longline T-shirt?) that says 'Mauji'? © Viral Bhayani The red and white jersey with black detailing is exactly the kind of playful number that new age streetstyle is all about. It fits the streets, the ramp, as well as the football field. © Viral Bhayani However, what stole our focus away from the 'Mauji' jersey were the shoes he is wearing. Varun is sporting a pair of edgy black studded boots from Givenchy. The statement high tops are a pair that are totally capable of stealing the thunder of all other pairs around it. Take a look. © Instagram Along with the boots, his black ribbed leather finish pants from Balmain are just the kind of pants that go with an outfit as statement as the one he's wearing. Let's just say his stylists Priyanka and Kazim of 'The Vainglorious' really know how to pull all the stops out. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is that we're loving the quirk Varun is bringing along with all his outfits these days. Well done!
  19. Thanks to global style kings (+ trends like normcore and laziness), there's now a sudden insurgence of loungewear in public. It's now publicly acceptable to creep what you wear to bed into your outside world-style, without having the fashion-backward folk judging you. It's a great time to be alive, we'd say! Following the exact same spirit, a lot of famous Indian men like Kartik Aaryan, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan are already slipping into track pants for their snooze fest and right after waking up, stepping out without a wardrobe change. That's just how they've now started to live their lives. For Varun Dhawan however, it's more about breaking away from just wearing track pants; he wants to wear some dope track pants instead (that one would actually be proud of flaunting in public). So, at the trailer launch of 'Sui Dhaaga', the multi-gunned man did exactly that: © Viral Bhayani First off, let's mention, that track pants happen to be really slimming for anyone they're put in touch with. Plus, you don't even need to pair them with flip-flops or any kind of open footwear, you can turn to clunky, dad-like shoes instead, like the Balenciaga Triple S' Varun Dhawan has opted for here: © Viral Bhayani And now, let's break this pair of track pants down here. Factually, these belong to the brand 'Palm Angels', a brand that offers a dose of American style with graphics and playfulness of the global streets, like Varun Dhawan's Rainbow track pants here, that are made of 100% polyester. It's a mid-rise pair, with ribbed knits around the collar, cuffs and hem, zipper in the front, zippered pockets on the side and printed logo right in the front. © Palm Angels The pair retails at a cost of $68, that's approximately Rs. 4,700. Not a whopping price, eh? But while that's just the MRP of the piece, the real result of wearing the piece lies in looking like a capital-F loungewear hero. Having said that, while Dhawan has styled the piece with a lot of corresponding star-attractions in the ensemble — the Triple S sneakers, printed bomber jacket (also from Palm Angels)— you don't need to. Besides the track pants, you can keep the rest of the separates minimal and neutral, to ensure the rainbow trim of your bottoms stands out. © Viral Bhayani Takeaway: if you're looking for your next outfit-inspo, in all probability — you're already wearing it in bed. Else, log onto your Instagram, stalk The Vainglorious (celebrity stylists- including Varun's), because that's where terrific fashion happens first.
  20. Shahid Kapoor pretty much ticks off all the checkboxes, when it comes to a 'complete package' in terms of a Bollywood 'hero'. Be it acting, dancing skills, fitness, or good looks, Shahid aces it all. One area in which he has especially impressed us recently, is his style game. Shahid has been experimenting a lot with what he wears, and honestly, he nails it every time. The latest instance was his recent appearance in an all-white streetstyle outfit, in which he incorporated a - wait for it - white kurta. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani What bowled us over, however, is the pair of jeans he wore with it. They have to be hands down the strangest pair of jeans we have seen in Bollywood. The best thing about the pair is that they confuse you and play with your head. © Viral Bhayani Are they a pair of jeans? Or a kurta with a couple of cool vertical stripes? Or just a pair of white track pants? It's not until you see the rips and the distressed pattern that you can realise that they are, in fact, probably the coolest pair of jeans you've seen! © Viral Bhayani Coming to labels, Shahid is wearing a white kurta and a shirt jacket (shacket, if we may), by designer Kunal Rawal. The jeans we can't get over is from Embellish. © Viral Bhayani Shahid's shoe and accessory game is also absolutely on point. He's wearing a dope pair of black and white sneakers by Dong-Jun Kang, and statement sunnies by Irresistor. Stylist Anisha Jain clearly is on top of her game, we must say. © Viral Bhayani What we love about the outfit is that it's deceivingly simple, yet extremely eye-catching while being sophisticated. Who knew streetstyle could turn out this elegant? Well, now we know!
  21. Kartik Aaryan's denim game has always been strong. He has proved it time and again throughout the past year, and honestly, he is one of the rare B-Town celebrities, whose style game is supremely noteworthy, yet extremely relatable. He is constantly upping the ante when it comes to discovering his true aesthetic, and is successful every time, while surprising us all, pleasantly so. His latest attempt at bringing back a super quirky jeans trend from the '90s fared just as well. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani There was a phase during the '90s which was all about the bizarre. Perhaps that explains the trend of jeans with ankle zippers? Though the trend was a fun flip on the whole bootcut phenomenon, it wasn't able to sustain itself - perhaps because of the lack of functionality? Anyway, Kartik clearly thought it needs to be back and took appropriate action. © Viral Bhayani The distressed and ruched fabric is adding to the avant-garde vibe of the pair, and is making the zippered ends look like they were just meant to be. What we love about the pair is that it's absolutely dynamic in its construction. It starts off as a regular pair at the top near the waist, and slowly starts changing. At the knees, it gets distressed and ruched at the same time, and finishes off at the ankles with those statement zippers, with a lot of extra length to boot. © Viral Bhayani Moving on, though, can we take a look at those insane sneakers? Aren't they crazy? Actually, no other pair would quite do justice to that pair of jeans. Plus, there is a reason he has chosen to undo the zippers - to show off the high-topped awesomeness going on beneath them. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the overall outfit, we totally approve of Kartik's choice of upperwear - a classic Dolce & Gabbana Millennials black T-shirt. © Viral Bhayani Ankle zippers are still quite popular when it comes to workout clothes and athleisure, but when it comes to jeans, they are pretty dormant. But thanks to Kartik, they might just make a mainstream comeback. Not everyone can pull them off, yes, but isn't that what fashion is all about?
