Sherwani, Jodhpuri suit, and Nehru jacket are Indian men outfit. They are symbol of opulence as they are made of Indian clothing that is known for its colorfulness and grace. Traditional Indian men outfit is an elegant dress that is worn during special ceremonies nowadays.
Indian men outfit is historically connected with traditional Indian women outfit. Some costume historians believe that the men's dhoti, which is the oldest Indian draped garment, is the forerunner of the sari. Till the 14th century the dhoti was worn by both men and women. Thereafter it is conjectured that the women's dhoti started to become longer, and the accessory cloth worn over the shoulders was woven together with the dhoti into a single cloth to make the sari.
Let 's look closer at the oldest Indian men outfit, namely sherwani. This garment is worn by Indian men during North Indian and Punjabi weddings, in particular. How does sherwani look like? Sherwani is long coat, buttoned up in front with Nehru collars. The sherwani falls well below the knees, and looks elegant especially if the groom is tall, and yes, the physique is perfect. One of the specific features of this Indian men outfit is to be fitted closely to the body to show how the men are well built. Another version of sherwani is double breasted or an asymmetrical opening. Two inseam pockets and side slits are obligatory for this type of sherwani.
Traditionally, the sherwanis worn are off-white. Lately, color has made its foray into sherwanis. Those who dare to be different, try out black and other darker shades. Sherwani is usually embellished with embroidery and zardozi work. The groom's sherwani is incomplete without the ghatcholas, flowing kurtas with churidars and jooties or Indian sandals.
The Turban and Safa are team members with sherwani. Safa and wedding turbans are traditional headgear worn by the men of both the sides during wedding. Wedding safa is a necessary part of a traditionally dressed groom - a must groom attire. The colorful safas are made of various materials - chunari or sheer cotton drape, with or without zari work, and ghatcholas. The groom's safa is traditionally red in color, and it goes well with the off-white sherwanis.
Another Indian men outfit worn at wedding is Jodhpuri suit. This is very popular with the younger men. It gives the groom a regal look, and he can wear appropriate jewellery to 'match' that of his bride. The length of the kurta must be 2 inches below the sleeve.
This should be worn with a narrow trouser to match the kurta, made with the same fabric. The groom has a choice of either selecting suiting material or silk, which can be plain, jacquard or jamewari, depending upon his taste, skin colour and of course, his budget.
The shades preferred by Indian males are most often light shades like cream, fawn, dark fawn, white and off white. Grooms have the option to heighten the impact of their outfit by adding buttons in gold or silver or with precious stones. The groom can also go for some light embroidery on the neck and front, with in shades of brown, red or grey.
