Wondering what can make you stand out at a wedding? We got GQ Fashion Director Vijendra Bhardwaj to tell us what to wear to a wedding, if not the sherwani.
It’s your friend’s wedding, and you’re mulling over what, if not for the ubiquitous traditional tog – the sherwani. Well, first thing –the sherwani is a GQ favourite, and we quite often recommend it for dressy evenings, especially weddings. When it’s well-cut – By which I stress upon it being sharp: firm shoulders and a slim fit (which means cut close to the body and not tight) – it’s the ideal gentleman’s long coat for dressing up.
But the pertinent question here is – what of the man who doesn’t go by the narrative, and finds it a tad bit staid? But still wants to look sharp.
So, when one drifts away from the tried-and-tested sherwani, are there options out there, that are occasion appropriate, but feel contemporary and progressive? Of course. Here, I’ve plucked five alternatives from the designer collections showcased at Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights.
