Bandhgalas To Tuxedos: This Mumbai Fabric Store Will Help You Look Like A Gentleman
We took a walk down Bandra’s lanes and found ourselves in fabric heaven at this store called CEO Rules. Here’s why you should take that walk too.
What Makes It Awesome
With casual wear taking the lead with millennials, we wonder if formals still have the charm. You know, sharp cuts, seams and fabrics that make heads turn. We can't get over the charm of well-fitted formal wear. If you do too, then you must head to CEO Rules to hoard on some quality fabrics.
They have two stores in Bandra, one on Ambedkar Road in Bandra West right opposite Brownie Point. And, another one on the Khar Linking Road, right next to Manish Malhotra's store (the Khar-Linking Road outlet is going under renovation soon though, and will be shut for a while).
At the helm are Arshad Soomar and Anis Soomar, owners of 136 years of legacy. CEO Rules is not just an average store that stands in Bandra. It comes from the house of Haji Soomar in Crawford Market, established in 1881. Their focus has always been on finesse and quality of the craft of suit making. You can get bandhgalas, customised tuxedos, suits from here that will set toungues wagging. The tailoring cost for a basic suit starts at INR 12,500, and you can get a tuxedo stitched for INR 16,000. But if you're scoring your fabric from here, their range of suit pieces (4 metres) start at INR 4,500 and goes up to INR 80,000.
CEO Rules is the perfect place if you're looking to get that one suit stitched that will be your prized possession for times to come. You might be spending a little extra, but take it from us, it's totally worth it.
