Things They Like: Hormazd Sorabjee
Hormazd Sorabjee’s ‘must haves’ are his Mac Book Air at work, and his iPad3 and Blackberry at industry events and private parties. All his gadgets are on a need-to-have basis. Sorabjee prefers Mac Book Air for its light weight as it helps his back. He says, “I am very heavy on the keyboard, therefore I need a good keyboard and Mac Book Air has one.” His Blackberry helps him to connect via mails; BBM and Twitter and iPad to catch up on his reading. “All the magazines are there on Magzter and Zinio. It’s great on flight to catch up on reading. In particular I like the Economic Times app,” he explains. He is also a camera buff and his latest acquisition was a Nikon D7100.  
He classifies his wardrobe as ‘conservative, simple and straightforward’. He loves checked shirts, prefers causal wear at parties, ‘not so formal’ at work and one can find him in suits at industry events. And he hates wearing a tie! “The way I dress up, I think someone will send the fashion police after me,” he chuckles. He likes to support his friends’ brands and that’s why he prefers Raymond and Zodiac, while and denims comes from Levi’s. Among watches, his favourites are Rolex and TAG. Sorabjee  prefers ‘not overly sweet’ fragrances, like Armani Gio and Kenzo. Shoes? From Clark and Steve Madden.
He has a BMW 325i in his garage besides a  Mercedes - and a Nano. Amongst the three, he loves BMW the most and his dream car is a Ferrari Daytona. “Ferrari Daytona is the most beautiful car in the world, all time classic, sounds brilliant and just looks great,” surmises the auto expert.
