Have you ever thought of going to an army supply store to shop for the hippest new trends? We found just the place. Naval Trading Co is a shop near Lion’s Gate (which has been around since 1947 in different avatars) which not only supplies to the armed forces, Bollywood movies, but will also make customised camouflage jackets, pants, and other awesome accessories for us. Plus, we’re loving their chunky army boots.
This iconic shop doesn’t seem like much at first sight-tucked away in a small corner, with dirty overalls decorating its front, and dogs gamboling in front of it. But once we enter, it’s all friendly tailors and men in uniform doing their shopping. In case your wardrobe needs a ‘major’ upgrade, check out their range of fabrics. Khaki cargos, shirts, skirts and even camo pants can be stitched to-order.
What’s more is that we can finally get the perfect fit. The in-house tailor takes customization orders. Plus, if you’re into home decor, stock up on these fabrics and get some cool cushion covers made. The price of these is around INR 300 -350 per meter. We also loved the bad-ass black army boots here. These are available at the shop in all sizes and shapes. Perfect to brave the rain, mud or even just add an edge to a casual look. You'll get the classy ones between INR 1,500 to INR 3,000.
P.S: Seen those biker gangs roaming around the city on their Harley Davidsons and Royal Enfields? They get their boots from here. Get the cool biker look without the license.
