Men, Get Your Wedding Wear Sorted At These Epic Stores In Town
We’re just going to be upfront and say, we’ve been ignoring grooms and their entourage. But, here we are, hoping you’ll accept our apology and subsequently refer to our guide of where to shop wedding wear for men if you have a trillion weddings coming up; and if you’re the groom, we’re hoping you have a good one.
We realise since everything that’s associated with her name says “Jaipur Bride”, it might throw men off. But tucked away in the back of her sprawling store is a men’s rack. She does sherwanis, suits, kurtas, jackets, bottoms, shirts and accessories, all staying true to her exquisite aesthetic of gota pati embroidery, pop colours, and timeless cuts. We’d recommend this more for the groom, or perhaps brothers of.
Brahaan by Narains
This store is a blessing for grooms, best men and friends. Narains does traditional and smart wedding wear for men, but the surprising showstopper is their understated semi-formal range of Indian menswear. Their kurtas come in all gradual shades of heaviness. Or, if you draw the line at a plain raw silk kurta with minimal gold piping, that’s fine too. Their staff is super helpful; they’ll help you combine the fabric from one piece, buttons from another, thread-work from a third, and will have it ready when they say they will.
We like the ability to browse styles online (especially their very cool Indo-western collection) and to click on a tab titled ‘book an appointment with our wardrobe stylist'.
Lest we forget, amidst all of Varun Bahl’s glory, his Indian menswear collection is by far one of the best out there. The team of designers take the time to understand personal styles, blend in industry expertise as well as interesting trends, and turn out some beautifully crafted work.
Heritage Handloom Emporium
You’ve probably already been here if you’re looking, and if you haven’t, Heritage in South Extension is a great place to be shopping for weddings. Thedelhibride’s Delhi groom scored his wedding sherwani from Heritage, and she swears by it, and him. If you’re not the one tying the knot, they also have a collection of kurtas, and again, after some major sifting, you might score an understated, silk kurta with minimal work.
If time is on your side, they can customise your outfit too.
Ultimate in luxe, rich colours and detailing only synonymous with his genius, Sabya’s men’s collection needs to make it to every groom’s checklist. They start retailing at INR 34,500, which for his label, is quite reasonable. That said, the collection is more apt for smaller events like a mehendi or puja.
You might be put off by the excessive bling, hectic prints, and some shiny objects; it’s just the stuff you need to look through to get to the good stuff. Keep telling yourself one thing — customisation. What we fancy the most are his Nehru jackets, on the pricier side, but available in a host of colours and detailing. You also have the option of booking an appointment with him to customise your outfits, including suits, shirts, jackets, breaches, and bandhgalas.
Study by Janak
If overdone is your style, along with stones, embellishments and too much work, Study shouldn’t be a problem, but if you’re trying to keep it classy, you’ll have to really filter. The good thing is though, if you do have time, they have a made to measure service, where you can ask them to cut down work on something you fancy. Their portfolio includes everything—kurtas, suits, sherwanis, bandhgalas, accessories…everything.
PS: They’re one of the few Indian companies that makes suits for Savile Row, and given they’ve been in the business for ages, they know their fits.
Another solo designer dedicating himself to men’s fashion. Sunil Mehra is great for his line of kurtas and sherwanis. Think electric blue kurtas with a patiala, complimented by a baby blue Nehru jacket. Yes. It’s on.
Perfect with cuts, finish and silhouettes, think soft pin-tucked silk kurtas, and all white bandhgalas, with pop colour pocket squares. If you’re loaded, we couldn’t recommend his bespoke services more. Special mention: He nails the bandhgala jackets. Nails.
Get ready to spend the big bucks though (but, it'll be worth it).
