In an exclusive conversation with Marsplay, Instagram star, and fashion blogger Abheshek Garg aka DapperlyTamed talks about his journey as a blogger, some styling hacks, and a lot more….
1. Can you tell our readers about yourself, and how did you first get into blogging?
I was studying MBA back in London when I was very fond of clicking pictures and getting my pictures clicked, so that is how it all started. When I started posting pictures of me in different outfits, I received an overwhelming response from my followers, which made me post regularly. But at that time, I did not take it very seriously; a couple of years down the line, I started paying more attention to building my profile, and that is how it all started.

- What is fashion to you, and how would you define your personal style?
Fashion, to me, is a mix of experimentation and staying comfortable at all times. My personal style would be a mix of classic and something completely fresh. When I style myself, I want my look to be something that pulls me out of the crowd and makes me look different from everyone else around me, in short something unique.
3. What we like most about your work is your constant flow of new ideas involving menswear. What inspires you to think of new topics continually?
The inspiration comes from inspiring more people. When I am creating content, the basic idea that comes to me is to reach out to as many people as possible and make Indian men look good. Because I personally believe that guys from India are highly underrated when it comes to style, and since the past decade, the fashion sense amongst men has evolved a lot. When I am creating my content, I keep in mind that my content inspires people to dress right and is relatable to people from all sections of society.

For example, I take up fundamental styling like how can you style a white shirt in different ways for your day to day activities as well as create category-specific content.
- What are some of your current fashion obsessions?
Currently, I’m loving prints both in shirts as well as trousers, and apart from that, I am obsessed with sneakers.
5. What was the most challenging moment in your journey as a fashion blogger, and how did you overcome it?
The initial challenge I faced was to get followers and bring numbers to my page. Because I believe it is a bit difficult for men to grab people’s attention and gain followers. To overcome this challenge, I started doing things that I am good at and made content that was relatable to most people. And that is how I started getting traffic to my page, and well rest is history.
So since it is summer, guys find it a bit difficult to layer it up and look different, so one essential advice for layering in summers from my side would be to use your shirt in multiple ways. Like pairing them with your formal pants or informal shorts or maybe on top of a matching t-shirt or with your favorite tie.
Apart from this, if you want to step out of your comfort zone and experiment with your style, you can pair your sneakers in different ways. Style your sneakers and create your look by wearing them which shirts, t-shirts, suits and also your kurtas. Pairing them with kurtas and Indian outfits, in my opinion, is cool and makes you stand apart.
7. If you had to name one thing, what would be your favorite thing in your wardrobe right now?
My D&G chunky sneakers are my current favorite thing in my wardrobe.
8. What three things does anyone starting in your industry need to know?
The first thing I would suggest is to identify your niche, i.e., whatever category you need to get into. It would be best if you had a fixed category and, at all points, believe in yourself.
Secondly, you need to figure out that the content you give out to people should be different and unique from others, you can’t just start blogging about common topics like men’s wear or copying someone else’s ideas.
Lastly, you should have high-quality content. Focusing on quality and not on quantity should be your main goal. When you are creating content, the mandatory thing is to be consistent and regular in posting it.
