Dudes! Add funk and style to your wardrobe with a customised suit or sherwani from The Colectivo on Commercial Street.

What Makes It Awesome

A snazzy store on the busy Kamaraj Road, near Commercial Street, The Colectivo specialises in Indian and western clothing for the menfolk. What we love about the store is that they embrace quirk with abandon and make it look super stylish. So, if you are up for a colourful, trendy look, that’ll have heads turning, do stop by here.

At the store, you can choose from a range of fabrics. We spotted shirting and kurta material with floral prints, vibrant geometrical shapes, bicycles, bows, mirror work and what not. If you prefer plain fabrics they have those in pretty much every shade. And they have the regular mix of checks and stripes too. So, clearly you’ll be spoilt for choice. 

When you are done with the fabric selection, the in-house designers and tailors take over. Whether you want a sharp work suit or something fun to wear for your BFF’s wedding or your own nuptials, they’ll happily customise a look for you. You can go all out with sea-green jackets with floral prints or keep it classy with a tuxedo. Patchworks bandhgalas are a possibility and so are grand sherwanis with intricate work. They also do draped kurtas and smart, sleeveless jackets from traditional fabrics. Prices for a suit begin at INR 7,700.


For custom suits, make sure to go well ahead in time, as delivery can take up to 10 days.

Navya considers herself to be the Cassandra of the 21st century – no one ever listens to the wisdom that she so willingly imparts. This is the only Greek tragedy element in her otherwise happy life. She’s got her Husband Charming, has perfected the art of sarcasm, is always fed copious amounts of good food, and is well on her way to self-actualization.
