After Hrs salutes the pops who never skip a style beat

These daddies figure on every style list. No red carpet event is complete without their iota of suaveness. They can rock a spiffy Prada suit and also look effortlessly charming in a pair of Jodhpur breeches. Most of them are thorough gentleman and their good manners, well rounded upbringing and global exposure makes them uber-cool. Here's raising a toast to all the dapper dads in our social circuit.

Kalyani Chawla, VP, Marketing, Christian Dior Couture
"The most stylish father has got to be Sunjay Kapur. His impeccable style stands apart especially when casual as he is so, very carefully! But the fact that he is such an amazingly dedicated father to his two lovely children, who are his utmost priority adds to his aura of charm and sensitivity, which is so enduring."

Wendell Rodricks, designer
"I think Suresh Bhojwani is great. Not just with his son, wife and everyone around. He has good looks, class, style, smiles a lot, can sing and play the guitar. My kind of guy. He is one hot, cool dad."

Suneet Varma, designer
"I think the most stylish dad in Delhi is Ajay Bijli. Not only is he brilliantly successful as the entrepreneur with PVRs all over the country, he's very handsome, in great shape, a family man, grown up kids with the best wardrobe in town. He was wearing Prada suits when most people in India couldn't spell it. He's sharp, chic and reserved - deadly combination!"

Hemant Sagar, designer
"As far as Delhi is concerned I would nominate Sanjay Sharma, who after having made Swarovski big in India and being an entrepreneur, is now with Christie's. He is a gentleman, who is never over or under dressed, which makes one remember him as a person and not for his appearance. It confirms that real elegance and being appropriate is a question of balance which ends up enhancing the person to such a point that one only remembers the allure. It also shows how elegance has to do with personal equilibrium of which Sanjay has plenty: one just has to see him with Sheena his lovely wife and their wonderful little daughter .. Close bonding that can be seen and felt and results in elegance."

Nikhil Thampi, designer
"They say 'Wine gets better with age' and this applies to the one person I think has created his own style over the years and keeps looking better and better with time, Saif Ali Khan. Saif is not only a doting father to his two kids, but also a passionate and lovely human being. He has his own sense of style, be it washed down jeans and tee or a tailored suit - he can carry any look with a charismatic charm. Another person I feel who has a lot of style and is very experimental in his dressing is the newest father on the block Imran Khan."
