To be honest, next to impossible to get it in India , especially if you are looking at sizes such as 36*32, 36*34. I have been on wait list for couple of months now , that too in a place like Jayanagar, Bangalore.
Somehow, their stock planning is all awry and the best way is to request a friend returning from US /Canada to get a pair in case you are really need it quickly.

I would not recommend Peter England chinos since the quality of material is just OK. It is hard and not so flexible as well. Will be a bother for well built people. Allen Solly makes excellent chinos. Have not tried Louis Philippe.

Colour Plus also makes very nice chinos. Have been wearing them for a while. They are lighweight, flexible and super soft, very comfortable to wear for extended hours. They are also priced fairly reasonably.

Not sure if there is a separate thread on formal/ tailored wear, so posting on this thread. I am looking for a formal/business suit tailor in Bangalore, specifically other than the usual suspects of PN Rao, Raymonds, Prestige, Reid and Taylor etc. The main two requirements are good fit and finish, and importantly, reasonable tailoring prices. From what I have seen, a tailored suit at the aforementioned places run into Rs. 20,000 and often well above this, whereas, I am looking for tailored suits within Rs. 10 k max, all inclusive (including material cost).

For this, the only solution seems to be local (non-big brand) tailors who are equally good craftsmen but change one third or one fourth of the tailoring charges levied by the big brand names.

Any suggestions? I am in south Bangalore (JP Nagar area) and hence suggestions in south Bangalore will be useful. Looking forward to recommendations.

Agree with you. And for that budget (reasonable) will have to look at non-branded tailoring houses. I could have suggested our long time tailor, but he is in BLR West - may be 15km from JP nagar. Btw, I still go all the way from here when I need to get something stitched.

One suggestion - which ever tailor you pick, give him sufficient time and not hurry him.

Any of the shirt brands that make odd sizes like 39, 41 etc ?
Years ago, most brands had them but now they've rationalised it to just even sizes, so are there any that still have them ?

Head to PN Rao, Elephant Rock Road in Jayanagar. Or Khanate (I think they have relocated somewhere in Jayanagar). These guys have a reputation spanning decades. Google up these two.

I believe Zodiac makes them. Check https://www.zodiaconline.com/

Also you can check out the slim fits of Arrow. For instance the 42 slim fit is almost the same fit as the 40 regular, but with a slightly bigger collar size. Perfect for those with a thick neck and who still need to wear a tie.

Happy shopping.

I picked up odd size shirts at Brand Factory from the John Miller and Daniel Hechter range. In fact, there was even a 60% discount on all clothes till Sunday, in Vashi, Navi Mumbai, making it quite reasonable.

Check Marks and Spencers outlets either in 1 MG Mall or in Koramangala. I personally use size 39 form the M&S brand, so they definitely offer this size. Havent noticed 41, but that might be there as well.

IIRC, Khanate is opposite to Vijaya PU college at the cool joint signal in 4th block Jayanagar.

Esprit, Gas, M&S, CK, TH.

Esprit has the biggest collection, at-least online followed by M&S.

For trousers / jeans too, Esprit has odd sizes available.
