Ask him about this passion and Imran is quick to reply, ''I have always had a fetish for ties. I have many of them, some old and new. I never throw away the old ones as I have a strange affinity towards them. I collect ties and conversely All-Stars shoes as they're both a lot of fun. You can add one or the other or both to jeans and a T-shirt, and it suddenly becomes an amazing style statement.''
Seems like this is his new style statement. ''I never cared about fashion. I like to wear what I am comfortable in. Style for me is the ability to look good without looking like you're making a big effort. I look for things that connect with me personally. Be it a tie, a pair of shoes, whatever; it should be a reflection of my personality,'' Discourses Imraan.
