For the perfect gentleman

For the perfect gentleman

Geoffrey Beene stocks everything that a modern, fashion-conscious male would want. From funky designs to playful cuts and colours, the brand is on a mission to dress up every man in the most attractive way possible.   

Of cuts and shades

The brand has two broad variants — a formal line and a sports collection. The formal line has dress shirts, dress trousers and blazers as staple categories; while the sports collection offers sports shirts, premium cotton chinos and luxury and mercerised polos.

The formal and the sports collection are creatively christened as ‘Sartorial Elegance’ and ‘Sartorial Dynamism’ for the ‘Spring Summer 2012’ Indian edition. There are a range of wrinkle-free shirts, super-fine cotton sport shirts and pure-cotton twill shirts, to mention a few. 

Giving an insight into the design creativity of the brand, Moutushi Dey, the head of design for Arvind Retail Limited, says that the brand is a combination of everything — cut, colour and design. “A good product is the perfect culmination of cut, colour and design.

However, if we had to single out our strongest point of emphasis, it would definitely be the cut or in more common terms — ‘the fit’. Colour and design are undoubtedly updated and in trend; but they are a shade easier to achieve in comparison to cracking a fit,” explains Moutushi. She further says that post extensive trials and research, the brand achieved sophisticated, yet relaxed silhouettes, across categories.

“The snugly fit polo or the traditionally bold shirt, paired with the well-tailored chinos or trousers, under a crisp light-weight blazer is an ideal combination of everything,” she adds.

Geoffrey Beene boasts of churning out fashionable, updated looks and the emphasis is not on a single product, but on a holistic ensemble. “We focus on dressing a gentleman from head to toe. He walks in and under a single roof, gets the most luxurious and international look — not just a single piece of premium quality clothing,” Moutushi

Men love to dress up and they don’t compromise on accessorising to complete and complement the look. “The satin and knitted ties — in slim widths, offered in both subtly classic stripes and solid, bolder colours alike — are becoming a staple twist to this segment,” concludes Moutushi.
