Being the in the fashion industry for 9 years, Rain Dagala and Em Millan have learned a lot including the right approach in styling their clients.

Now, Team Rain x Em continues to redefine fashion without sacrificing their client’s identity.

Team Rain X Em On Keeping Identities And Making Changes In Men's Fashion

For the two stylists, every person has their own “style”—just like how Erik Santos and Christian Bautista being the classic balladeer, Billy Crawford as the streetwear kind of guy, Sam Concepcion as the playful and experimental kind of style, and Enzo Pineda as the boy next door. It all goes down to every person having and knowing their preferred style based on their personality.

Professionally styling different type of guys for years, Rain and Em shared that regardless of preferred style, there are five things every man must have in their closet.

First is a good pair of leather and casual shoes in black or brown color that can be worn in different events. Second,  a good underwear, regardless if it’s a boxer or a casual underwear, every man must invest in a good underwear according to them. Everything that has been used for a year should be thrown out already. The third is a good-fitting single-breasted suit in colors of black or navy. One that can be worn in different events. Fourth is a steel watch that can fit any occasion, whether it’s a picnic outside, casual birthdays, or formal events. Last but not least is a handkerchief. A man may not use it personally but handkerchiefs are commonly carried out to be lent to ladies, after all, every man should be a gentleman.
