It is rare that, in an office dominated by women, we collectively ooh and aah over men’s shirts. But we've actually found a brand that we'd immediately buy stuff from for our respective boyfriends, husbands, friends, and brothers (mostly so we can steal it later ourselves). And that brand is Andamen.
In case you hadn’t figured it out already, this ‘contemporary heritage’ men’s fashion brand is inspired by the Andaman Islands which is (in their own words) "The part of our motherland that has gone further, to the edge, exploring and discovering, but in its roots, is resolutely Indian". Owners Siddharth and Satvika Suri are passionate about India, and that reflects deeply in all of Andamen's designs.
Andamen's impressive, signature collection of breezy shirts is our absolute favourite. You'll find casual, formal and evening shirts in cotton and jacquard fabrics on their website. We recommend checking out the Air Weave range of formal shirts when you're shopping there. Prices for the shirts start from INR 3,390.
You'll also find luxurious polos and tees on Andamen's shopping portal. Crafted out of Supima cotton, the t-shirts are super comfortable and we're really digging their summer collection of Aurum tees that are a play on gold and jacquard. Prices for the t-shirts start from INR 2,390.
Apart from the shirts and tees, you'll also find beautiful, printed pocket squares at Andamen. The designs are India-inspired (think camels, indigos, and floral patterns) and they'll cost you INR 1,990. Chinos lovers should check out their solid-hued range of chinos which they can also get altered on demand for a better fit. The chinos at Andamen start at INR 3,890.
