Styles and Sherwanis: We asked Pawan, regarding the current trends in groom wear in the North of India. He explained, “The grooms are going in for sherwanis in different avtars for the wedding day, like a mid-thigh sherwani with well-fitted pants, a long sherwani with pleated salwar instead of a churidar and more innovative ones even going in for flared long skirt with sherwani. The trends of late are changing and men are experimental with their clothes and don’t shy away from trying something different for the wedding day as they want to be seen.”
People’s Preference: Men prefer to go in for something unique yet classy and the most important factor is the fit and the style when they decide the outfit. Pawan highlights, “For the wedding day, they prefer sticking to traditional outfit and sherwani is the most preferred choice. For reception, it’s the tuxedo while for sangeet and cocktail, the conservative ones prefer Nehru Jacket and the style savvy men experiment with the latest in fashion.”
Designer’s Choice: Men do not insist on their choice of style and leave it to the designer. Says Pawan, “At times, they insist on their choice, but by and large, my clients stick to what I decide for them as they have confidence in my creativity and what I choose designs for each of them according to their personality. This is because whatever the fashion, I prefer to stick to a man’s personality and his body and then alter the fashion accordingly and give him something which is latest as far as fashion is concerned and yet suits him perfectly well. By and large, men like tuxedo and sherwani but today’s man is opening up to the fashion and is trying all new styles.”
