    Lockdown style check: Coffeeza CEO misses his Ralph Lauren sports coat, bought a few Fred Perry polos for his wardrobe


    Rahul Aggarwal believes sprucing up before a call is important.

    For more formal meetings, Rahul Aggarwal puts on a shirt.
    For Rahul Aggarwal, CEO, Coffeeza, his lockdown style is all about casual comfort:

    My everyday look
    I wear what I would normally wear to work – denim jeans and a polo t-shirt. I find that this combo is the most comfortable when it comes to everyday wear. When it comes to polos, Massimo Dutti or Polo Ralph Lauren are my go-to brand. My favourite pair of jeans are my Zara jeans.

    Zoom in
    When it comes to a Zoom meeting, if it’s a casual catch-up with my team then I wear a polo tee. For more formal meetings, I put on a shirt. Sprucing up before a call is important. I often just simply wash my face and fixing my hair to look fresh before a call.

    What, wear, when
    Since the office culture is casual, our workwear is casual. So for a meeting with my team, I’m relaxed in a tee, jeans and with a cup of coffee. A nice pair of comfortable jeans are a must – I have about 7 pairs from Zara which I use daily and 3 pairs of Diesel jeans which I wear to go out.

    Pitch perfect
    For a pitch meeting, I would prefer go a little more formal and switch a tee with an Oxford shirt. I like wearing blue or white when I do online calls. As far as jeans or pants go, I guess it doesn’t really matter. One item I miss wearing is my Ralph Lauren sports coat which I usually wear while travelling for meetings.

    When it comes to socialising online, I like to keep it very casual. A tee and lounge shorts which is my at home outfit. No slippers or shoes for me – I like to be barefoot at home. Some of my favourite loungewear brands include Tommy Hilfiger and Zara. The comfort is great and I like the quality of fabric.

    Treat yourself
    During the lockdown, I bought a couple of Fred Perry polos as I got a great deal on them. I do a closet clean-up every 3 months or so. Furthermore, as I live in Goa, I keep my closet well ventilated to prevent clothes from smelling musty due to high humidity.

    My wife diabetes symptom was diabetic neuropathy. We didn't know she was diabetic until we went to my doctor complaining about constant foot pain. After a multitude of tests for everything from rheumatoid arthritis to muscular dystrophy, an emergency room physician checked her blood sugar.After reviewing a letter written by my doctor, where I read he had prescribed Celebrex for her due to pain of Arthritis which had really messed her neck, back and knees, I found that one of the side effects of Celebrex is Diabetes, my wife was able to effectively cure herbal condition multivitamincare org It is too much for a patient to endure such as they slowly begin to pass away if the right medication is not taken organic herbal treatment.Having a positive mind is a powerful tool .My prayers goes out to diabetes patients and their care givers.
