The men’s fashion weeks may be over but if there's one thing that Pitti Uomo has taught us is that a sharp suit will always stand out in any instances. Though it's true that a western suit is almost every man's go-to item to smarten up a look, true fashion sartorialists will almost always opt for a Bandhgala suit for that extra hint of poise.
The Bandhgala suit (also called the Jodhpuri suit), emerged as a fuse between the modern and the traditional during the British Raj era. It merged the Brit's structured jackets with the Indian's traditional Angarkha style to create a new fusion of an Indo-West flair.
The highly tailored design of the Bandhgala suit cuts a razor-sharp silhouette and exudes an air of regal sophistication like no other. Precisely cut and timelessly lavish, it's no wonder then that the Bandhgala has remained as popular as ever in present time. For those looking to elevate their style, here's how to incorporate the Bandhgala as their newest wardrobe staple for seasons to come. Think sharp tailoring and chic accents for that perfect hybrid style that is as exquisitely stylish as it is contemporary.
Daytime looks that are casually stylish Pair any crisp shirt with a sleeveless, short-length Bandhgala jacket (similar to the Nehru jacket) along with fitted shorts and your favourite pair of loafers for that stylish daytime wear that's fashionable yet still functional. Bonus points for mixing quirky prints, different fabrics and contrasting but thematic colours!
Standout in any formal affairs with a full Bandhgala suit. For a scene stealer look that's impeccably smart, look no further than to wear a full bespoke Bandhgala suit. Whether you'd like to keep it simple with a pair of Oxford shoes or you'd like to add some personality by accentuating with bright pocket squares or cufflinks... the Bandhgala suit's clean and crisp silhouette will be a fashion statement that's sure to impress.
Maximise style and wear a Bandhgala as a coat. Turn heads by pairing any outfit with a long Bandhgala draped over your shoulders like a coat. Leave it unbuttoned for a hint of effortlessness or wear it buttoned for that regal, polished look. Feeling brave? Try Bandhgalas with bold colours or clashing prints!
