Mr. Khanna’s feed gives you an insight into his personal life and style. The profile offers a wide variety to ogle at, from his colorful breakfast pallete, to amusing vacation adventures to his love for puppers.

Mr. Dreamy’s style is understated, smart, and effortless.A boutique Bollywood actor as his Instagram Bio says, this one is a personal favorite. We are not sure if it is the filters that he uses or its just his extraordinary skills with the camera, but every single picture looks as though it has been lifted off a glossy magazine.
- Jim Sarbh
Instagram username: jimsarbhforreal
I think there’s no denying that ‘girls like bad boys’. But this hottie attracted not just girls but also boys with his negative character in the film ‘Neerja’. Jim’s ability to make even the most ordinary pieces work has helped him achieve almost god-like status within the menswear community. After all, is there another man who can look irresistible with uncombed hair in the back of an auto rickshaw?Jim’s feed is aesthetically pleasing; his pictures seem too good to be true and the videos. Good lord! There is one particular video of him walking on the ramp, when he turns and smiles. I can honestly say I have dreamed of that 5 seconds video. His style is chic, the man is hot, and has a great taste in music. Ah, sounds just like the man I need in my life.

RG rightly has an urban eye for anything that is smart. His feed is full of colors and flavors from around the world. As well as letting strangers from around the world look inside his wardrobe enviably stocked to perfection, RG also leads users to small cafes across travel destinations for a more intimate experience.
Id suggest you to prepare yourself to see your new crush. RG travels extensively and regularly shares tales from his worldly escapades. He travels around the world in search of fashion inspiration and more, and documents his findings on Instagram.

Instagram username: the.style.doodler
This men’s fashion and lifestyle blogger is based out of Bangalore but lives out of his suitcase. His Instagram feed is all about brilliantly composed photos and absolutely set to perfection aesthetics. Be it casuals, or formals, this guy knows how to rock any outfit in the history of ever. His Instagram feed serves as a perfect guide to high-low dressing. Trust us, this is the kind of quality material you’d want to spend hours looking at (and following).
Fashion is all about your own individual style but a little help never hurts, right? Each of these smart men lay emphasis on tailoring, quality fabrics and smart accessorizing. But they also talk about not being out there, but just flowing with ease and suiting yourself. And aside from just writing about whats on trend each season, these fashion enthusiasts aren’t afraid to think outside the box.
And other than all that fashion gyaan, there’s always their happy faces, spectacular bodies and envious vacations to look at. Happy stalking!
