    It’s time for the guys to have some real fun with their New Year ensemble

    Designers like Rohit Bal and Paul Smith as well as labels like Canali and Van Heusen are coming up with ways to work some quirk into your end-of-year festive tuxedos and formal jackets, using everything from floral embellishments to tartans and intricate embroidery. Text: Maegan Dobson Sippy

    Make a statement without going too extreme with the current Giorgio Armani collection. There’s an extensive range of elegant jackets with signature touches, but we liked this black and white lana wool number, that’s sure to look great with either jeans or formal trousers. Rs.1,19,000. At DLF Emporio Mall, New Delhi. Details: 011 41027122

    Add a floral touch to your evening wear, with this rose-patterned jacket from Van Heusen. Elegant yet offbeat and unusual, it’s the perfect choice for the dapper gentleman about town, and will definitely attract some attention. Be sure to keep the rest of the ensemble plain for maximum effect. Rs.7,999. At Garuda Mall, Magrath Road. Details: 41531022

    2612Itlistmen2Out of the blue
    If you can’t join the ‘Old Year’s Night’ celebrations in Edinburgh, you can inject some Scottish fun into your outfit with this understated tartan number from Canali. The blue checkered-print appears and disappears depending on the lighting, and it would look great with a tailored pair of
    chinos, and loafers. At the store in UB City, Vittal Mallya Road. Details: 41738997

    Keep it classic
    If you want to stay simple yet elegant, this Saville-row inspired tuxedo coat is perfect. Made from pure new wool, it’s a wardrobe staple that can be used to balance unusual bow ties and colourful pocket squares very effectively. Rs.18,999. At Marks & Spencer, 1MG Mall, Trinity Circle. Details: 22086525

    2612Itlistmen4Urban jungle
    This black and white jacket in Moschino’s signature cow print has Italian eccentricity written all over it. Playful yet elegant, the two-tone velvet adds a luxurious touch. If you have enough chutzpah, team it with a crisp white shirt and red tuxedo trousers. Rs.93,000 approximately on moschino.com

    Golden lining
    This slim-fit tuxedo coat is perfect for the season. The rich golden fabric has a beautiful texture, bringing out the range of tones in the colour. The satin detailing on the lapels adds an extra flourish. We’d recommend combining it with a flamboyant silk cravat. Rs.16,995. At Paresh Lamba Signatures, MG Road. Details: 25596145

    2612Itlistmen5Other worlds
    In gorgeous maroon velvet, this blazer from Paul Smith is all about the details. From the quirky ‘cosmos’ print lining to the eco-friendly corozo nut buttons embossed with ‘PS’, it’s perfect if you want to make a statement without being over the top. The rich colour as well as the classic fit is designed to flatter. Rs.49,000. At the store in UB City, Vittal Mallya Road. Details: 41738882

    Measure up
    We love the heavily-embroidered range of blazers from Rohit Bal. This satin extravagance comes with velvet lapels and fine handworked details,
    and works perfectly with well-fitted black formal trousers. The focus on deep berry shades offset against gold and black makes this a real statement piece. Rs.1, 25, 000. At the store in DLF Emporio, New Delhi. Details: 011 46060961
