The biggest style mistakes Indian men make is that they either go for overly bulky clothes or they go for clothes that do not fir perfectly. Bulky jackets are meant for bitter cold weather which is not usually experienced in India. Moreover bulky jackets make you look shorter, fatter and not that stylish unless you are in a cold country and you have the physic to pull it off. So try going for a thinner jacket and if they are serving the purpose of keeping you warm then try layering your clothes. So ideally try buying a jacket that exactly ends at your wrist. If it end beyond the wrist or too high above your wrist that means its a wrong size for you.

3. EVERGREEN BLACK JACKET :
