one cant say anything till we know more about the person himself. his built, looks and all. and more importantly, the people who will be around in the functions. ( there can be a lot of people from his proffesional circle at times, making it a bit formal. or a whole family affair)



p.s: u going to get another person some identity crisis.rebate coz the person is gonna loose it to ur frnd????

hey! just something to get you started on -> Men's Wearhouse.

granted its not a big help as you won't be able to buy anything off it due to the wedding being in India but they do have a lot of choice when it comes to cuts & styles, etc.. so it might help you decide what looks best on your friend.....

millionaire at kemps corner is something i (like most others from mumbai) frequent for my blazers and the deals.
incase you're familair with peddar road, the domino's building on the back side has this guy calpled impressions whose mostly known for his imports of casual wear, he has a shop next door for blazers and suits as well.

the section in which this thread is posted is "Shifting Gears".

gud to see that people are shifting so much gears on t-bhp that it beats the purpose of having "off-topic" section too!

Hi Manaa,

Like Manson suggested Millionaire is an excellent choice large variety and decently priced. You can also try More 'n' More at Kemps Corner opp Stephen Church.

try getting it done with a designer. I got mine done the same way. eventhough the suits are more expensive, they fit properly. more importantly the designer can hide or add bulk to the frame. (he added some bulk to me )

regarding the colors too, a good designer will be of great help there.

At the risk of getting a slap on the wrist by a certain mod.. isn't the SHIFTING GEAR forum a place for ALL off topic discussions??
As much as I hate to disagree with you Rtech.. I think this time I have to!
