I take all my expensive materials to Raymonds @ 100ft rd, Indira Nagar. Excellent stitching and ready made finish. They charge about Rs. 400-500 / trousers, but worth it.

Finally narrowed down to PN Rao on MG Road.

Checked Javeed's and Prestige on commercial street. Prestige seemed not too thrilled about stitching cloth not bought from them. However they charge Rs 4000.

Javeed bhai seemed to be an interesting character straight out a Merchant Ivory production. In his own words - "He delivers what he wants and you don't have to worry about the price just like when you shop for Diamonds you don't ask the price you ask how many carats" . He charges anywhere between Rs 5500 to Rs 6500.

PN Rao charges flat Rs 4500.

All these prices are for a two piece suit.

Always try to match the following.

1) Shoes - Belt - Watch-Strap ( Same Colour & Texture)

2) Trousers & Socks (Same Colour, and sock should be long enough not to show your SEXEEE Legs)

Umm, not sure about this. When its formal, I wear black socks whatever the colour of my trousers. Casuals = white socks.

I disagree slightly

Watch strap looks better in steel always/not gold though.

Shoes belt and socks should be same colour
to be precise : socks and shoes have to be of the same colour otherwise it is an eyesore when your trouser hikes up a little


My two cents :what do u think?

some more thoughts guys ?

Pleats or pleatless?

I agree. Steel straps are universal and go well with all formals.

My personal choice is pleatless, though I do like pleats at times.

Neck-ties - Always match the shirt color shade (not the color itself). Else wear a white shirt, all neck-ties go well.

Do not wear striped shirts and trousers together. Also, avoid striped shirts with striped suits.

Smile Need help with wedding shopping in Nagpur & Bangalore

OK friends, here's the deal.

I am engaged to be married in a few months. I need some help with my wedding shopping.

The wedding will be a fusion of Maharashtrian and North Indian style.

I need to purchase garments for myself for the following 3 occasions:

1. Ring ceremony (Day 1 - evening)
2. Wedding ceremony (Day 2 - morning)
3. Reception (Day 4 - evening)

I am thinking of buying ethnicwear (Sherwani, turban, stole, jootis etc) for the wedding ceremony. For the ring ceremony and the reception, I am planning to buy formal suits.

I would prefer to buy ready made, but I am still open to the option of tailored suits.

It is customary that the bride's parents purchase the wedding suit for the groom and the groom's parent's purchase the wedding dress for the bride.

So we (my parents and I) would be visiting my in-law's place (Nagpur) for the wedding shopping. I am not aware of the shopping places in Nagpur. Can someone from Nagpur please suggest me some good areas and shops for men's ethnic wear. Also suggest shops for bridal wear.

I plan to purchase the other 2 suits in Bangalore. I know some shops/malls in Bangalore, but still would like to take suggestions from you guys. Please suggest some good stores, especially ones which are multi-brand stores.

I am not looking for any designer stuff, just the regular brands like Allen Solly, Louie Philippe, Van Heusen etc.

A lot of discount sales are going on currently. Is it a good idea to buy suits in these discount sales ? I generally buy all garments during these discount sales only. I feel that branded stuff is overpriced, if purchased at MRP.

Are there any good websites where I could get some ideas for wedding shopping ? Could someone post some links please.

Finally, please suggest some colours for the suits, shirts and ties. I am wheatish colour and average height and built.

Rohan

First of all Congratulations to you to your would be Mrs and to the both sides of the family.

Now coming to the question you have asked, IMO one should never buy a Sherwani for the only reason being that after you wear it for your own shaadi you will never wear it again and it just lays around unused occupying space.

Here in Jaipur, there are shops who give Marriage Sherwani on rent. An unused Sherwani would be slightly expensive than the one that has been used once or twice before. But still 1/6th the price of buying a new one. They also fit the Sherwani to your size. They also have turbans, stole, jooti etc etc on rent.

As for suits and shirts are concerned at least you can wear them later too. Go to a good tailor and get them stiched, thats the best thing as they fit you the best. I feel ready made never give you that feeling.

My suggestion for your attire during the 3 functions you have mentioned

1. Ring ceremony - Nice traditional Kurta Payjama with a stole

2. Marriage - Sherwani

3. Reception - 2/3 piece suit or a Bandh gala Jodhpuri suit, black in colour with a red scarf in the pocket

Good luck shopping!!
