Saif Ali Khan won’t dress for the paps, here’s why

While most actors have stylists who pick out clothes for them to wear every time they step out of their homes, the Nawab finds that silly

Self-appointed fashion police have been targeting Saif Ali Khan for his gym looks and airport looks. While most actors have stylists who pick out clothes for them to wear every time they step out of their homes, the Nawab finds that silly. He refuses to jump onto the bandwagon. He doesn’t mind repeating the same outfit. The actor says, “I don’t like dressing for the gym in a gym look, or catch flights in an airport look. I want to be normal and not a fashion victim. I do also have the best suits and clothes in the world in my wardrobe and can be well-dressed, but I will not always be so. I do not want to be pressured or slotted as some kind of chap that I am not and I will not ever dress for the paparazzi.” We applaud that.

Get the look: Saif Ali Khan

There’s no doubt that Saif Ali Khan is one of the most well turned out guys in India. When men struggle to wear a tux with, Saif can pull off a while three-piece suit like a don – evident at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last year where he won the Most Stylish award.

Most actors borrow style from their reel life roles. Not Saif. He plays it the other way around and nails it. In Rangoon, which releases this Friday, the blue-blooded Nawab takes his classic charm to character Rustom Billimoria, a film producer in the Burma of World War II. With a devilish pencil moustache and his hair slicked back, Saif, who was inspired by his grandfather Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi’s style, looks every inch the movie Mafioso of a refined era.

In the movie, you’ll find him in a sharp pinstriped double-breasted jacket with a freshly plucked rose in his buttonhole. He’s always wearing a pocket square or cravat. His jacket-over-Jodhpurs look with riding boots are a portrait of a young Iftikhar. Even a pocket watch that his grandfather carried and was passed down to Saif, makes it to a scene.

Saif’s outfits are on point with a generation of men who made an effort to present themselves well, regardless of whether they were born wealthy. They dressed up for work – whatever their profession. And even though they didn’t have access to an army of stylists, wearing a glistening tie bar on a jacquard cravat or a meticulously tailored suit was de riguer.

Luckily for you, with a little effort, you can look just as elegant. Start by building a wardrobe of classic pieces – a crisp white shirt, a pair of Jodhpurs, trousers and a few polo shirts. Note here that when you buy, fit and quality is off utmost importance. Then add a few neutral-coloured pocket squares, printed cravats and solid ties to your accessories drawer. Top it off with riding boots and an heirloom piece, if you can. Truth is that you don’t need to own a lot to look this good. Let Saif show you how it’s done.

Saif Ali Khan: My father was stylish, but my granddad was impeccably dressed

Saif Ali Khan has been catching up with his grandfather this last one year. And that’s odd because he has never met him. Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi died in 1952 while playing a game of polo when Saif’s father Mansur Ali Khan (Tiger) Pataudi was just 11.

Flipping through an album of old but well preserved photographs from the 1940s, he tells us that the decade is a favourite with him for its fashion. “I am quite conversant in men’s fashion right from the Roman times. But the ’40s happen to be my absolute favourite. It was a truly elegant time,” says the actor, apologising for not being able to allow us to take the album out of the vanity van parked at Rajkamal Studio where he is shooting 9-to-9 for Chef. “Amma would kill me,” he says, imagining actress-mother Sharmila Tagore’s wrath.

The album holds memories of the 8th Nawab of Pataudi, the only Test cricketer to have played for both India and England. Saif calls him a “classic gentleman cricketer”. “He wore a suit with a cravat even as the opposition captain tossed the coin in a cable knit cricket jumper. My father was stylish, but my grandfather was always impeccably dressed, whether on the cricket field or on a polo ground.”

4 times Saif Ali Khan proved he’s the real nawab of Bollywood

Dapper could very much be Saif Ali Khan’s middle name. From dandy suits to natty Nehru jackets, the Nawab’s refined style is truly inimitable. What’s more, he is B-town’s original metrosexual man – teaching men that it’s okay, heck even necessary, to prim and groom yourself – a feat we’ll always thank him for. Here’s a look at the sartorial world of the Nawab.
