Bobby Chadha, founder of SRC Aviation, on how his suits define him and why he remains partial to blue.

Casual is best

“I like wearing casual business suits because you can go from the boardroom to a cocktail party in it. It’s a look that works well everywhere.”

Blue notes

“I mostly like my suits in hues of blue. I find black formidable. Other colours I wear are browns and greys, but I remain partial to blue. It’s classic but isn’t intimidating. I wore my first suit when I was 18, to a family wedding. It was tailored and yes, it was a shade of blue.”

Added confidence

“My best feeling while wearing a suit was while meeting a delegation at the Italian Embassy in New Delhi in 1982. I am in the aviation business and it was an important occasion. I wore a black suit with navy blue pinstripes. I was very young and I felt it added to my overall confidence.”

The Italian cut

“I usually buy my suits in Milan because I like the Italian way of styling and the fabric. Italians make the best suits.”

Perfect match

“My most memorable one has to be my wedding suit. I don’t think so much fuss has ever been made about my dressing. It was a suit I wore after the traditional ceremony. It was a beige suit with a rose pink tie to match my wife (designer) Ritu Beri’s outfit.”

Caring for your suit

“I’m particular about my suits and get them dry-cleaned. I travel often and I make it a point to hang suits in a garment bag. So when you arrive, you are ready for the boardroom. A creased and crumpled suit is a definite no.”

Wear it like Clooney

“The accessory that complements a suit best is a trendy watch. I like the way George Clooney wears his suits. I like a classic feel. I would never team my suit with a pair of sneakers”.
