Sampurna Man Shrestha is one of those dapper men in town who has always loved trying out new way of doing things. Director at Sama Enterprise Pvt. Ltd, the distributers of Ruslan Vodka in the Kathmandu region, Shrestha started his career as a web designer and was the first person in Nepal to hold a franchise of Himalayan Java Coffee when he opened an outlet at the Star Mall in Putali Sadak. However, he later decided to sell it off after seven years and came up with his own brand of coffee, Sam’s Brew. When it comes to style, Sampurna makes sure wherever he goes, he looks his best, and here he takes the opportunity to talk about his style mantra:

What is fashion to you?

Personality development lies in your hands. For me, fashion has always been about being extra, yet standing apart from the crowd in a way all eyes on you are full of compliments.
Describe your personal style in three words.
Comfort, Unique and Confident.

Describe your personal style i three words. 

Comfort, Unique, and Confident.

What is your go-to-style choice for formal and informal events?

In formals, I prefer to wear blazers which are designed by me. These are very unique and are usually double breasted. For casuals, nowadays, I am more into prints. To make sure those prints are unique when I wear them, I usually get them from abroad. It’s been about 6 months that I have been trying out different patterns of prints. At home, I am in very simple attire.

What would we find in excess in your wardrobe?

Definitely, printed shirts which are half sleeved. You might also find an excess of blazers which are personally designed by me.

What are some of your favorite places to shop?

Recently, HECTOR shoes at Trisara Mall which has been my destination for formal shoes. Nike has been my all-time sporty selection. For clothing, I prefer Zara and H &M. I also do like the jackets from Latido.

One style item you would never wear?

I guess Hip Hop clothing is not my thing. My profile won’t let me do that (laughs)

Perfume

A favorite color in your wardrobe?

It’s red nowadays. I have started preferring red for all my products from my car to my phone.

Most experimental outfit you have ever worn?

A red, suede blazer that I designed. I wore that to my friend’s party who actually once told me that a blazer isn’t that classy. I got a lot of compliments for the blazer and my confidence I showed to carry such a pop-out color. I have also experimented with the Club Master series of Ray Ban.

Two things women find irresistible in men.

I personally feel women can’t ignore someone who has got a fluent English-speaking skill and a good smell.
