Here are some of the more popular traditional Indian menswear.
Dhoti is the ageless costume of the Indian male. Every state in India has its own distinctive style of tying the dhoti. You can go in for the spotless white ones or the off-white silk or cotton kind with broad borders. It can be worn with spotless white khadi shirts or with high-necked kurtas. Drape a matching shawl over your shoulder and you are dressed to kill.
For men, who aren`t too comfortable with dhotis, a sherwani is the perfect alternative to look traditional and elegant. These buttoned down long coats with a slit in the centre can be worn with churidar pyjamas. If you can handle the attention, go in for colours like rust or burgundy. Otherwise, settle for the traditional cream, beige, white or black.
They are similar to sherwanis with the exception that the jackets are shorter with embroidered lapels. They can be worn with matching trousers.
Kurta pyjamas are not only attractive but very comfortable too. You can choose from silk, cotton or polyester and go in for colours of your choice.
Wear a matching shawl or a turban, handmade in cotton, silk or tissue to suit the occasion. You can also go in for handmade leather jootha or sandals.
